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.
