Wishful Storytelling: How to Put The “Young” and The “Restless” Back In Genoa City’s 20-Something Set


Abby Newman ceased being interesting the day Emme Rylan beat a hasty retreat from Genoa City, Wisconsin for Port Charles, New York. That isn't a slam on replacement Melissa Ordway. She is a solid actress, but The Young and the Restless obviously had no interest in developing storylines for the character when she first came on.

Rylan was fired because TPTB had no story for her character. A fan revolt got her re-hired, and it is apparent the only plans devised were to have Abby (by this point played by Ordway) run around town, butting into her older relatives' love lives, while spouting cut downs from 90's rap songs.

"Hoochie Mama"? Seriously, who says that anymore? She should have called Kelly (Cady McClain) a slut-astrophe.

General Hospital Spoilers!



Here’s the Scoop!

I was on a GH high last week and what always gets me about this show is that I feel like I come down too hard. I haven’t been feeling that high this week and in fact I see a lot of typical repetitive nonsense BUT I’m still hanging in there. I’m not jumping off the bandwagon just yet. Obviously, James Franco has me wondering and the addition of Scott Reeves as Steven Lars Webber has me giddy with expectations. One thing that is definitely keeping me hanging on… Dante/Dominic. Whatever you call him I’m saying Tom Pelphrey who? So much so that I almost gave my roommate a smack across the head when she declared her dislike for him the other day.
