Whaddya know? Sometimes soap operas actually listen to their fans. The Young and the Restless viewers were too through when veteran soap opera slayer Jill Farren Phelps "revamped" Katherine Chancellor's (the late Jeanne Cooper) iconic mansion set — transforming a regal fictional estate that screamed old money, into a drab, gray bachelor pad.
Fans weren't the only ones pissed off. I hear the suits at CBS Daytime pitched a collective fit when Phelps pulled this move without asking for permission. Enter Jess Walton.
Y&R's most valuable player was brought back as Jill Foster Abbott to once again speak for the fans (and the network) in regards to son Billy (Jason Thompson) trashing Kay Shepherd Reynolds Chancellor Sterling Murphy's crib! In Monday's episode, Jill found the perfect color to repaint the mansion — Forget-Me-Not Yellow. Watch a clip below:
Bravo, Y&R and CBS-D, Bravo. Now for a bit of sour to go along with the sweet... If this soap opera takes me back to the days of Jill constantly pimping her Aussie step-spawn Cane (Daniel Goddard) over John Abbott's baby boy, I just might make the evening news!
What mother steals her son's company to make him share it with her stepkid? Grrr....Okay, let me go watch the clip of the pretty Forget-Me-Not yellow walls again to steady my nerves.
