Jill hated Kay - blamed her for Phillip (Sr)'s death b/c Kay was driving the car that crashed

Thanks R4.

Besides the car crash that killed PC2, Jill also hated Kay because she went to court and got Phillip's Dominican Republic divorce from her thrown out, which meant Phillip's subsequent deathbed marriage to Jill became null and void as well as his directive that Jill's then unborn child be his rightful heir. Kay's actions made Jill's baby illegitimate, and the boy could not be called Phillip Chancellor III, and instead had to go be raised as plain ol' Phillip Foster.

R19 Nope. .. Phillip wouldn't touch the Old Battleaxe, because she stunk like booze and cigarettes, so she resorted to riding the stableboys. .. Soap actor, Rod Arrants, was one of them, and he was on Y&R in 1974, playing "Jeff the Stableboy." That was the year before Kay drove Phillip over the cliff. .. Years later Arrants would be cast as Ashley's doctor-husband, Steven Lassiter.

Kay was a total SLUT.

Recall, we also heard that when her first husband, Gary Reynolds, went to work abroad in Germany for a year and took 7-year old Brock with him, Kay and her drinking buddy, Charlotte, went out partying and carousing almost every night. .. I still remember the way Charlotte (the wonderful Elizabeth Harrower) read that line, "The men, ohhhh the MEN!" .. She made it sound like the two party girls enjoyed sampling random cocks left and right. .. That's during the time when Kay eventually began fucking one guy in particular, Tucker's father, Arthur Hendricks, who I believe was in college and working as a waiter at the GCAC so he could go to law school.

R31 The reason they look good(?) if that's the way one sees it, is because most, if not all of them, have had already had work done.

We know Stafford's been having surgeries-procedures for well over 15 years now. That was put out there in one of Vicky Rowell's "bedtime stories" involving her and then-EP, Ed Scott, who apparently had a talk with her and "suggested" she go in and have "the same eye job that Michelle had just had done." The implication was she was looking old and needed to have something done about it. Rowell turned it around on Big Ed and pointedly asked him if he'd also told his wife to go in and have it done. ..lol.

Bregman too. I remember years ago, she had something go wrong with one of her procedures and had to keep the right side of her forehead-temple area covered with her hair. This was around the time she had a massive boob job. She can't even move most of her face now. .. And people have been talking about Case's face for over a year now. Whatever she had done seems to have 'settled in' somewhat, presently. .. Years ago Susan Walters talked about her bad experience with Botox treatments and that she was giving it up, but that doesn't mean she hasn't had some other cosmetic work done since. .. Some feel Eileen had nose and breast jobs in the past and that she had something done to her face about a year ago. Better work on her part, though.

Former Y&R EP, Jill Farren Phelps, predicts how soaps will react to the strike.

Josh Griffith probably has a list of fellow FiCore scribes he'll call up to do the actual scripts. After all, he's already doing the breakdowns.

One interesting thing Phelps says is:

[quote] One unlikely consequence of the strike was that the show’s producers tended to loosen the purse strings and the usual controls just to get episodes finished. “During a strike, the financial constraints are all but released because the writers are no longer being paid so sets can be created and most of the money rules that strangle daytime are gone,” Phelps said.

R41 Sony (Steve Kent) took the opportunity to fire LML during the strike. As showrunner, she'd was been EP-HW, so I guess not doing one function meant she wasn't doing the other. Kent installed Josh Griffith as EP and Maria Arena Bell as HW. After the strike, MAB was retained as HW and Paul Rauch became EP. Eventually, MAB became EP-HW with Hogan Sheffer brought in as co-HW. .. Interestingly, Sheffer had also been let go as the HW at Days during the strike. Thing is, both he and Meg Kelly had gone FiCore to keep working, yet were told to stay home, with Days taking the opportunity to release them and replace then with Dena Higley, who subsequently went on to become the the official HW at Days after the strike.

Here, I thought they already did the change to "Winters" when Neil & Dru adopted Devon over 15 years ago?! .. I know there have been times when his name was listed as "Devon Winters" in the closing credits. (See link.)

But her relationship with Neil was more or less platonic, since she had found herself pregnant with Cole's baby, and Neil stepped up to help her make everyone think that he was the baby's father. .. But during this time, they never had sex, only kissed. (The racists out in TV Land had a conniption.) .. By the time Vicki delivered her baby, Cole had found out anyway, and then the baby soon died.

(That was the wedding that got aborted because Phyllis showed up - Gina T's big entrance at the church.)

But even though Doris wouldn't be coming to the wedding, viewers took this to mean that things had thawed between mother and daughter, since the last time we'd seen Doris (ca. 2012), she was pretty pissed off with Sharon. .. Sharon had married Victor (GAG) with the divorce pending, and Doris was on her daughter's case about the bad choices she'd made in her life. ..

R114 No. .. Episodes and scripts airing now were still written pre-strike. It will probably be another month (or more) before any strike material airs. .. Recall, during the last strike, it was right at the outset in November 2007 that we heard fairly reliable rumors (from that Bell-mouthpiece) that Latham wasn't writing and was going to be canned. .. But the Griffith-Bell material didn't start airing until late December. .. I think Latham's firing was then confirmed sometime in February 2008.

Given their history, L'Bug not believing that Syphilis faked her death and is still alive is sooooo stupid. .. Cricket should be directing Chance to use every resource available to track the bitch down, so she can prosecute her for obstruction of justice and 25 other crimes.

And Aunt Jack and JaBottom playing "CSI: Genoa City" is laughable. Note to producers: Unless you're going to go there, don't show JaBottom putting on a pair of vinyl gloves.

Dear gawd in heaven! ... They're not going to have DuhVon buy and move into the Chancellor Estate are they?

Nice to see that it looks like they've decided to keep the main dining room of the GCAC up. But enough of Messa and the baby. How to waste 10 minutes of an episode with boring, repetitive filler.

And Sharon receiving a bottle of expensive champagne with an ominous, unseen lurker watching her? .. My first thought was Cameron Kirsten is out of prison and back. .. Recall, Sharon hit him over the head with a bottle of champagne, believing she killed him. .. This led to some crazy, camp material such as Larry helping Sharon stash the "corpse" in the Genoa City sewer, and later, she and Nikki going down into it to try to find it. It's been something like 20 years. Cameron was played by Susan Walters' real-life husband, Linden Ashby.

Nope. Abby and Dom moved into DuhVon's penthouse back in early April.

Chance -- the only true Chancellor heir along with gay Phillip -- is apparently flying solo at the Chancellor Estate, which we haven't seen since they showed that new room in the house months ago. That scene probably signaled that they'd shuttered the main Chancellor set.

One wonders if they changed the bed sheets between the Mariah-Tessa and Boretoria-Nate sex scenes? It was way too obvious that both couples were in the same room and bed at GCAC.. .. The only good thing about running these two scenes concurrently is that viewers can use the same barf bag.

Besides Summer, Detective Chance should also get Daniel in a position to interrogate him one-on-one about Phyllis. .. I'd suggest getting him alone at the steam room at the Athlletic Club.. Now, there's a set they need to bring back.

Besides a daughter, I would have included Keemo's son, so we could get some sibling conflict to show another side of the character. .. And unlike Allie's always smiling, studious, good girl Asian stereotype, the brother would be this total waster, bad boy Instaho. He'd be spending his inheritance on expensive underwear and jaunts to Ibiza, Tel Aviv and Dubai.

He's been taken in by a kindly elder gay who watches daytime soap operas. Also, there this totally wacky black woman who showed up at the trailer park 15 years ago with amnesia. She thinks she own the place and takes an immediate dislike to Phyllis. btw - She looks a lot like Drucilla, and Phyllis has some fun with this before telling her who she is.

There was some BIG issue between Brett Hadley and the show during Carl Williams' last go-around where the character came back as "Jim" and had amnesia. .. As I recall, the actor was ready to walk out the door and not look back and only agreed to do some final scenes to wrap things up, because of Dougie. .. It's been a long time, but I think it had to do with TPTB promising him a contract w/ guarantee, but then reneging, so he got pissed and told them to take this job and shove it. The story was supposed to last much longer. Instead, it just got played that his memory wasn't going to come back and went back to Norfolk with lesbian Ruthie. About a month later they edited in some scene where Jim-Carl called Paul to see how Mary was doing, but that was probably pre-taped. He was done, never to be heard from again.

We all known Carolyn Conwell as playing Paul's judgmental mother, Mary Williams.

But things could have been very different. In an interview 20 years ago or more, Conwell casually mentioned that she auditioned for the role of Marlena Evans on Days.

Just imagine if they'd cast her!

Try to imagine judgmental Mary as the saintly Marlena. Let that image sink in for a moment.

Carolyn Conwell would have been 20 years too old to play Marlena! As it was, Deidre Hall was barely a teenager when she was cast as Marlena in 1976. As I remember child labor laws forced Days to use her twin sister, Andrea, so the girls could have a tutor on set.

by Anonymousreply 264June 16, 2023 11:41 PM

A few years before Bell cast Conwell as "Mary WIlliams," she played rapist Ron Becker's mother, Marion.

This was one of Bill Bell's weirdest stories ever (imho) and would never get made today.

As the story was winding down, serial rapist Ron (who'd also gotten his wife, Nancy, locked-up in a mental hospital by overdosing her meds) had some kind of "epiphany" and came to believe that his mother, Marion, had emotionally abandoned him or something when he was growing up and this is why he'd become a rapist. Mother and son had some kind of "Freudian breakthrough" over this, and he was miraculously cured!

Soon Ron, Nancy, their little daughter, Karen, and Mother Marion all jumped in a car and moved to Alaska for a happily-ever-after-ending.

Bell originally said this was his "do over" for the rape story he'd done where George Curtis (fugly Tony Geary) had sexually assaulted Chris Brooks and gotten away with it during trial when a jury found him not guilty.

But here, Ron not only got away with raping Peggy Brooks (and other women) but got an excuse and a free pass to have a happy ending.

The big shooting you're referring to is when Patty shot Terry Lester's Jack, right? Did you happen to watch during Patty's return under Stacy Haiduk?

by Anonymousreply 336July 11, 2023 2:26 PM

R336 - R335 here. I did watch Patty’s return and thought Stacy Haiduk was really fun. I was very pleasantly surprised that anyone even remembered Patty by then.

One of the few criticisms I have had for Bill Bell is that he had a policy of never mentioning a character once they’d been written out (Chuck Cunningham Syndrome?). The Williams family had been built out — but then mostly disappeared.

When Patty first appeared she and Mary were written to be upset/repulsed by Paul’s wanton ways. Patty was about 15, I believe.

Steven Williams (I honestly don’t remember Todd at all from the early days) was upstanding and stalwart — kind of the opposite of Paul who was written as being pretty directionless and rebellious.

There were scenes of Patty and Paul that demonstrated they loved one another — but I believe all the Pattycakes stuff was a bit revisionist.

To my recollection Patty had barely been mentioned between Andrea Evans and Stacy Haiduk.

I did really enjoy the campiness of Stacy’s Patty (her cat!). I easily suspended my disbelief, but it didn’t ring true at all that Patty had spent all those years yearning for Jack.

I wish to save time, the use of that one suite at the Athletic Club would have scenes of Audra and Kyle in bed, at the same time as Victoria and Nate, and completely ignore the fact that the other couple is there, all the while Sally is arguing with Adam or Nick at that fireplace, and everyone is talking over each other.

R337 Stacy Haiduk seemed to get more accolades for her appearances on AMC and Y&R than she's receiving on DAYS. I believe you're right, I doubt there was barely a mention (if any at all) of Patty in between Andrea's/Stacy's stints. I also found the "yearning for Jack" angle hard to believe as well (along with others it seems, so I guess there's a group of us) yet I guess they wanted a storyline from Jack's past at that time. I'd have to look up Todd, that's not ringing a bell.

As for Bill Bell not mentioning characters once they're gone, I've noticed that pattern on other soaps too, some more than others. I don't know if this was the case with Bill perse, however I do know that when actors/characters were mentioned back in the day, they earned a paycheck everytime their name was discussed (and also if their likeness was used) and that prevented some soaps from referring to characters that were off canvas. Another reason is probably the whole "out of sight/out of mind" concept, then all of a sudden they start having conversations about a character, which is usually an indicator they're returning (which prevented them from having to pay the previous actor if the character was on their way back to town by way of recast).

[quote] I do know that when actors/characters were mentioned back in the day, they earned a paycheck everytime their name was discussed

The actor who most recently played a character but is now off the show gets a paycheck whenever another character on the show mentions his/her character's name?!?!??!?!

That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. The actor's don't own the character or the character's names.

Yes, actors get paid if old clips of their scenes are included in an episode. That's because their likeness, their performance is being used.

But the mere mention of a character's name means the actor who most recently played him gets a paycheck? I guess Doug Davidson has been depositing some checks recently since Paul Williams has been mentioned several times in recent months.

by Anonymousreply 340July 11, 2023 5:54 PM

Sorry but R339, no. Actors do not get paid every time their character is mentioned. As R340 said, they MAY get a small residual if a clip of theirs is used.

What you MAY be confusing this with is the long standing rumor that a show's writer gets a licensing fee if a character of theirs is used. Some people have said this is nonsense, and it may not have been for every soap or every writer, but I think some writers negotiated for this. (I believe Sam Hall at OLTL was one, and took the show or ABC to court at some point....or was it Prospect Park?)

It was widely assumed, especially for a lot of the now defunct NY shows, that the producers were reluctant to use older characters because they'd then have to pay an extra licensing fee.

{quote] Steven Williams (I honestly don’t remember Todd at all from the early days) was upstanding and stalwart — kind of the opposite of Paul who was written as being pretty directionless and rebellious.

When The Williams were first added as Paul's family, Todd was the youngest. A couple years younger than Patty, so probably 14. He was never seen, but we heard he had just started attending one of those Catholic seminary high schools where teenage boys who showed an interest in becoming a priest would be sent to study. .. Viewers could only imagine he'd show up in a few years questioning this decision and a vow to celibacy. Seemed like a soap standard back in the day. .. They kind of fucked things up when they made Todd older than Paul simply because they wanted to give Wilma Jeanne some scenes with her real life son, Corbin.

And the thing with Steve and Paul was Bell's same story of "First Son vs. Second Son." .. During the year Steve was played, it was mainly about what a bright and successful future First Son Steve had and what an abysmal disappointment Second Son Paul was. .. Paul was the loser with the inferiority complex, who thought he'd never measure up to Steve (well, unless they dropped their drawers and got a tape measure out .. lol).

Thanks so much R343! I totally agree about the brother template (Bell really revisited some wells over and over).

by Anonymousreply 344July 11, 2023 8:46 PM

[quote] but it didn’t ring true at all that Patty had spent all those years yearning for Jack

No, that didn't ring true at all. Because back when they wrapped up Patty's storyline in '84, she had definitely declared her independence and moved on from Jack. There was absolutely nothing between them.

If anything, Patty was stuck on former boyfriend, Danny Romalotti. She was hoping to get back together with Danny and things seemed to be moving in that direction. But then out of the blue, Danny up and married (pregnant) Traci Abbott just so she wouldn't look like a slutty, unwed mother who'd had an affair with her college professor. While Danny & Traci's marriage was platonic, Patty became suspicious that Traci's intentions were to make things permanent with Danny, so Patty confronted her rival. This led to an argument where Patty did the soapy 'arm grab' causing Traci to fall into the banister on the staircase. Traci ended up losing the baby.

Patty believed Danny would never forgive her and that became the main reason she left town, as she thought pursing him would be futile. So, if anything, she should have been stuck on Danny and still had animosity toward Traci.

I wouldn't doubt that another reason why Patty was written off that year is because Bell had plans to move cutesy-blonde, teenage daughter Lauralee into the mix.

by Anonymousreply 345July 11, 2023 8:58 PM

Thanks R345 - I remembered that. Earlier (when Lilibet was in the role) wasn’t it Danny (working at Jonas’ with Paul) who had the crush on Patty?

Side note: I also remember Traci literally putting her head in Danny’s oven to off herself due to the professor/pregnancy.

by Anonymousreply 346July 11, 2023 9:21 PM

R346 Yes, Danny was a singing waiter at Jonas' Place. He and Patty had been high school sweethearts, but then she became attracted to older man Jack and broke up with Danny (much to the dismay of The Williams, because Danny was the good Catholic boy, while Jack was the town scoundrel). Patty lied about her age when she first met Jack. At some point, Jill filled him in that Patty was jail bait.

R389 Kevin G. Schmidt had been in the role of Noah during the character's teenage years and was still playing Noah when he reached adulthood and started college. His blond complexion drove home the point that he was less a Newman and more Sharon's son. This seemed to fit with how things had been since early on.

Noah had gone to Paris with his high school girlfriend, Eden Baldwin (Michael LaBaldwin's half-sister) to study there for awhile. .. When the two of them returned to Genoa City, we learned they'd broken up. .. They danced around the reason and it seemed like it was going to be some secret reveal. All signs indicated that Noah was going to come out gay, mainly from this soliloquy he had at sister, Cassie's grave. .. Anyway, something big had happened over in Paris - the speculation was that Eden had walked in on Noah and some French guy while they were fucking. .. We know she just ran off and left Paris in a rush, eventually ended up in rehab with an eating disorder. .. Meanwhile, Noah had gone to NYC, and was still in contact with his hookup there who was only being identified with the initial 'A.'

Well, right about then, MAB got canned, and in the process her story for Noah got shelved as well.

Schmidt was soon let go .. JFP and JG cast Adamson as NuNoah .. and suddenly the French-NYC hook-up with the initial 'A' became this Hispanic girl named "Adriana" played by a totally forgettable actress.

No one spoke about Paris again.

Chance lives out of his SUV, but he has no problem persuading his Grindr hookups to let him stay the night and shower at their place in the morning. .. And if he doesn't feel like doing that, then he just showers and shaves at the GCAC after his workout.

Plus, there's generally a lot of downtime on Chance's undercover assignments. Sometimes these stakeouts take place in a motel room, so it's not uncommon for him to have a place like that available to him for several nights in a row. .. And Chance isn't fussy. There were times when he and Rey had to share the same bed, so he's even okay with being the little spoon.

They should set up an MFM threesome with JaBottom, Audra, and Noah. Ms. Charles seems the adventurous type.

Have Audra lure ex-boyfriend Noah back from London by sending him photos of naked JaBottom while he's sleeping, tempting Noah with, "Remember all the fun we used to have bringing guys back to our place after a night of clubbing? .. I think you'd enjoy Kyle, and I sense he'd be into it. .. He loves butt play!"

Then, the next time Audra has Kyle all hot and bothered on the bed, Noah walks out of the bathroom wearing only a towel and a nice dick print, "Move over, buddy. You're gonna love this."

R454 I'd say, "No," because Sharon and Nick were already legally-separated and in the process of divorcing when Phyllis was pregnant with Summer, and Nick and Sharon haven't been married since. They've been engaged to be remarried twice since then, but not married. In fact, Nick even married Phyllis before Summer was born, but it was only valid in New Mexico where it happened, because he was still in the six-month waiting period in Wisconsin. During that same period, Summer was born and they had a second ceremony in Genoa City a few months later.

R480 The two events are entirely different.

The Day of Days is a free thing (except for parking) where anyone can just show up and be part of the crowd. That's why it's held at a mall-plaza. The majority of people who go are local from the Southern California region.

This Y&R Fan event is hosted by the official Y&R Fan Club. This event alone costs $300. I believe it's actually referred to as a "luncheon" as part of it involves attendees sitting at banquet tables and breaking bread together. From photos it looks like it was a three-course meal. There was also a bar. So that's one reason it's held at a venue like a hotel. Also, some of these people travel from other parts of the country and abroad, so they might want to stay at the hotel. Besides the luncheon event, there was also an event the night before with the "Men of Y&R." I guess that appeals to the fraus and gay viewers... lol.

So whereas the Days thing is like a big pep rally, this Y&R thing is far more intimate.

I think the audience would have cheered at Traci's first "l said make me a sandwich and shut you pie hole" punch.

by Anonymousreply 563August 19, 2023 7:16 AM

Traci's pretty boring. She used to be much more fun.

Bulimia .. getting hooked on bennies and nearly dying .. having an affair with her college professor .. the suicide attempt .. an unwed pregnancy .. bearding for Danny Ravioli.

Now all she does is wag her finger at Aunt Jack and MyBeauty.

Traci should be laughing at that ludicrous corporate espionage story like the rest of us. JFC .

Basically, she got most of Peggy Brooks old storylines.

Peg was never a porker.

Peg should have gotten the "Stuart Brooks is not your father" storyline.

With that red hair, she looked like Jennifer had had an affair with next door neighbor, Ferd Burfel.

How could Traci stay fat while having bulimia?

by Anonymousreply 569August 19, 2023 7:20 PM

R569 Because Traci was one of those girls who was already overweight by the time she started her teenage binging and purging routines along with doing other things like taking illegal "diet" pills.

Traci was already BIG before Dina left. We heard more than once that she thought her mother was embarrassed by her weight.

In that regard, those recent flashback scenes featuring Young BDF John Abbott and his three young kids got it wrong.

Eat a salad, Traci!

R574 Bill Bell was rather eye-rolling with the names of black characters. He created other ones with the names "Jazz," "Kong," and "Juice." .. "Kong" would later go by "Nathan Hastings, Sr." (Nate's father). .. One imagines someone at CBS finally woke up and sent him a memo.

R564 - I liked Angela Laurence… talk about a deep cut.

I met Liz Keifer in the early 1990s and she was shocked that I remembered her YR character.

I remember Angela seeing Traci eat a plate of brownies.

I think it was teenager, Angela Laurence (but it could have been Traci?) who had a huge poster of "Knight Rider" David Hasselhoff hanging in her bedroom - meant as an inside joke, no doubt.

R577 I don’t remember that, but I love it!

My mom sure loved herself some Hoff and always referred to him as Snapper.

R576 When you met her, was she on GL yet? Did you mention her OLTL & GH characters too, or were those shows that you didn't watch?

by Anonymousreply 580August 21, 2023 7:34 PM

So Esther's going to be pouring coffee and lending advice at Crimson Lights?

Well, if they've got to work her into the canvas someway, that would seem like the best place to do it.

R580 I met her early into her GL run. She was SO nice! (Mary!)

I definitely mentioned OLTL because I loved the O’Neills (hello, Kristen Vigard!). I can’t remember if I mentioned GH.

how reliable is that site?

by Anonymousreply 587August 28, 2023 12:38 AM

R587 The site is totally unreliable when it goes beyond actual preview spoilers.

Read the article. It's just some person's wild speculation. It even says mid-way that "Y&R spoilers DON'T suggest that Cane (Daniel Goddard will return." .. Lot's of "ifs" in there. Plus, anyone who's actually watching the show can tell, that if anyone's going to come between Lily and Daniel, it looks to be Heather.

In short, the headline is total click bait for whatever Lane stans still exist. .. That would be Goddard and the fake subscribers he bought.

R582 So cool that you met her, it's nice to hear stories about meeting soap actors, or anyone somewhat known in general who don't turn out to be assholes, although those stories are interesting too to say the least.

Kristen Vigard reference 😆 I had no idea she was original Morgan on GL prior to her OLTL stint. I don't know if you have the answer to this, however I have wondered why both her and Liz had their O'Neill characters recast, seemingly at the same time. The O'Neill's seemed like they were headed towards being one of the new main families of Llanview, until they fizzled out.

I once saw DL fav Brendad Ickson at a mall appearance in the 80s. She was at the height of her Jill powers so we all loaded into a car (university watchers) and went. She was camp as fuck, but the audience roared at her antics. I recall her wearing an olive green, tight fitting dress that showed off her tits and she flashed a big ring and asked: like it? (beat) I got it from my ex.

Separately I also met Jeanne Cooper and Jess Walton backstage at a TV studio during a telethon. Jess couldn't be bothered, claiming they were needed somewhere. Jeanne stopped, took my hands in hers and talked for a few minutes, gazing right into my eyes so intently it was almost uncomfortable. I felt like I was actually in the presence of someone really warm and lovely. Whatever we hear about Wilma Jeanne all she held on me was my hands and it still makes me smile just to recall. She had real charisma. I didn't expect to be overly impressed but she left a great impression.

Why would anyone back/fund/hire Sally Spectra?? This bitch has been roaming around with no job for a year. Sally needs to marry Nick and let herself be taken care of, just like the groundbreaking Nikki Reed, who went from pole stripper to corporate whore mogul wife.

I know nothing about this soap opera, I just wanted to take up one of the last five posts before the thread closes.

by Anonymousreply 596August 29, 2023 3:04 AM

I don't get it. Is Sally popular? If so, why did they cut the character from B&B?

I don't watch B&B, but as I recall the whole reinvention of the Spectra Clan was built around her as "Sally Junior."

Seems like a dead story with discarded characters.

She's been on Y&R for nearly two years now, and I couldn't care less about her.

by Anonymousreply 597August 29, 2023 3:31 AM

R596 😆 pure honesty.

R597 She was somewhat popular on B&B, however you know how Brad Bell usually gets bored with characters after awhile who aren't Forrester's, Logan's or Spencer's (even some of those become expendable as well) so he seemed to run out of things to do with her. There was a whole new generation Spectra clan built around her which was actually pretty silly and a little too on the nose, with a new character based entirely off of original Spectra Fashions characters. Y&R ended up scooping her up (at one point there were rumors of her also being related to Lauren somehow) and they aren't showing any signs of wanting to get rid of her.

I like Sally now. It boggles the mind that Nick wants anything to do with her after what she did to Summer, however.

by Anonymousreply 599August 29, 2023 11:46 AM

Well someone is paying the bill for her suite at the GCAC. Maybe she's turning tricks at Chancellor Park? Anyway, Sally and Nick are a completely improbably couple and they have zero chemistry. They should have had her croak during childbirth.

And in stories NO ONE cares about—deaf Aria
