Getting to Genoa You All Over Again: Y&R Daily Chat

I'm just glad that finally someone stood and called Sally out on that dress fiasco, even if it was Lauren.

Considering this is how Lauren walked out her front door (Walk of Shame/Stride of Pride? The world doesn't want to know.)

lauren-yellow-velvet-dress-sequin-coat.j

Lauren has every reason to be upset that Victoria's chosen wedding gown wasn't representative of the original Fenmore's designer schmatta she was pushing on the Bride-to-Be.

Michael looked good, though he might go with a more narrow shirt collar. Not everything retro trendy works for the majority.

Quote

I mean, how embarrassing was it, seeing Sally literally wrestle Victoria to the ground, ripping that beeeeeUUUUTiful gown Lauren had made, forcing Victoria, kicking and screaming into Sally's gown.  Everyone looked on in horror but nobody stepped in to help Victoria and stop this outrage.

Sally's self-promotional methods leave a lot to be desired. For insecurity and self-sabotaging reasons, Sally won't lead with her strong point as the superior designer that listens to her target client or market. Instead, Sally plays childish games and tricks, undercutting her strengths, infuriating the very people she wants to impress.

Lauren conflating the wedding dress switch (Who told Lauren the circumstances Victoria ended up choosing Sally's gown? Did Dumber give her interpretation of the events?) into a personal attack on her and Fenmore's designer gown department is nonsense. As has been posted earlier, Sally no longer works for Lauren and is free to design dresses for whoever she wishes.  

Quote

Oh, that didn't happen?  Victoria chose to wear the dress she liked the best and that one happened to be Sally's?  Oh........

However Lauren paints her exasperation at being bested by Sally, she needs to walk it off. Howling about her fail in the only public venues in Genoa City isn't going to help the bottom line at Fenmore's

Quote

Then STFU Lauren and stroll back into your Notions department and stay there.

It's pathetic to watch a seasoned sales person not get past customer caprice.

Right now, Lauren doesn't seem to have the Notion that it's up to the customer to decide when and where they use the item they've purchase.

Quote

Noah must be so thrilled to be having his Dad come back to London with him, just thrilled.  What person wouldn't be over the moon to be walking around London with an over-the-hill surfer Dad who will undoubtedly start referring to his nether region as "Big Ben" in front of Noah's friends and giggling to himself about how funny he is?   Wanna bet he asks them all why they drive on the wrong side of the road and make some deadly dumb Dad joke about bangers and mash?

I wonder what Noah's really disappointed about? Is he actually disenchanted with being an in-demand professional artist living in a competitive and money-oriented city? And I'm concerned about Noah pressing Tessa for information about her fears and unhappiness with Mariah's emotional state after the kidnapping/Bowie birth; Tessa shouldn't have discussed the intimate details of her personal life with a man still in love with her; it's going to be seen as another betrayal by Mariah.

Nick traveling with Noah to London is going to be a grim trip. All Nick's teeth-grinding, penis-swinging and belly-aching need to happen in the privacy of a sub-basement storage room, not trapped in a private plane passenger compartment. The only escape is the restroom or an open emergency hatch over the English Channel.

Quote

Too bad Sally didn't have a special outfit for Nick, too.

giphy.gif

He's such an Oompa Loompa.

I don't want to think about where and with what Nick will sully those gloves.

Quote

Ashland's too happy.  No spoiler here but I bet he's a goner by Thanksgiving.

Nothing good can come from any happy citizen of Genoa City.

Quote

ETA - The Levi Corporation should issue a Cease and Desist order to make ButtBiscuit stop wearing their jeans.  He doesn't have the Assets to pull off wearing them.

That was painful. 

Why do all NotBilly's costumes look misshapen and ill-fitting? 

Quote

(I just re-read that last sentence!  It's an awkward construction but IN NO WAY  do I suggest ButtBiscuit should EVER pull off his jeans or anything else that covers that Valley of Despair he calls his body.  No way, no how.

I'll be more careful in my wording from here on out.)

Keep reading Y&R for filth, boes.

So far the "action" is back in Genoa City; and right now that is a miserable, unhappy place.  And I don't want to watch it.  Who would have thought that being in Pretend Palazzo would provide a much-needed dose of interest and change of scene.  Also a break from The Surrogate Story/Abby/Devon and Mariah. And Chelsea is probably coming back soon.  I will take the grifting of Billy, the blank space that is Lily; all of the Newmans (except Nick); Ashland; and for the first time ever I didn't mind Nate and Elena.  I'm still on the fence about Sally but I will take her over Phyllis.  And Jack.

The show today is so terrible that I am watching a Chicago PD marathon. Every time I flip back there is Abby crying to Devon and him with his soothing voice; and Mariah who sadly, I am sick to death of.  And that is not the fault of the actress.

That Jack is still so cold to Sally but panting over his ex wife who cheated on him with his brother and then cheated on his brother with Nick while Sally wasn’t honest about getting Summer the idiot a job irritates the crap out of me. Take old Red back, Jack. How long till she is lying or cheating again you dumb old fool. You stupid chump of a man, 

Ya had your chance Jacko.  a beauty willing to overlook you being close to 3 times her age. Because of little bully bish Summer who couldn't wait to kick mom and dad to the curb - damn you Sally for helping Summer and Kyle grow the hell up.

High-horsed Phyllis described Ashland as secretive and merciless. Yeah, kind of like when you rent a car to run someone down in the street, and then hack into the rental car system to delete record of the transaction so it can't be traced back to you. Merciless? Check. Secretive? Check. She yet again takes the prize for utter lack of self-awareness.

 

Give some random murder witness Viagra and then when he croaks (Heart) she dumps his body.

Adam might have disposed of Jack's dead hooker but he didn't kill her.

I have been enjoying Nick and Adam's relaxed brotherliness these last months; but sadly, that is going to go away.  Nick and his acting choices right now are irredeemable; what are the writers thinking?  And why must they make Sally be so "in-your-face" - taking the pic of Phyllis and Jack.  But she deserves better than Adam right now.  Hello, Nick.  Another wedge between the brothers?

The one positive about Sally taking the picture of Phyllis and Jack - maybe it will push the couple together for good.  I am so tired of Jack right now that I think he and Phyllis deserve one another.  

she is a handful....of something

On 10/19/2021 at 5:51 PM, peacheslatour said:

She's a bit of a butter face. I don't like her because she hasn't got any real personality. We didn't need another Phyllis.

I think when Sally first came on she was going to end up Phils L Lost daughter. I think MS must have pulled out her goat pics and threatened to show them so that was squashed. The younger actress was clearly directed to mimic MS to annoying perfection but that stopped.

Busybody Chloe jumped feet-first into that conclusion. Even if Sally and Adam had slept together in Italy, what business is it of hers? AFAIC if Chloe starts having problems managing Sally that's for her to take up with Adam at work.

Oh boy, I think Abby's nanny is trying to get herself fired. She shouldn't be letting anyone visit the baby without Abby's explicit permission. What if Mariah decides to disappear with Tater again? 😐

Mariah, see a therapist. An innocent child shouldn't be made responsible for handling your emotional issues.

Lol, maybe Devon should start an advice column. Since he runs all over town lending an ear and dispensing wisdom he could save gas by doing it online. 🙄

Okay, Abby was calmer about finding Mariah in her house than I would've expected. She was both assertive and gracious with Mariah.

Baby Dominic Crew. Nah, that doesn't sound cool to me at all. But watch Devon get a logo designed and put it on t-shirts and visors. Poor Tater will be cringing in his diapers. 😒

I can't with Lauren. It was ONE dress and ONE occasion. She is losing her flipping marbles and it's not cute. If she wants to be mad at someone she should be thinking about why her customer so easily dumped the Fenmores gown. I think it was absurd that a woman of Victoria's wealth and status was going to get married in a department store dress anyway.

Mariah said all the right words but I wonder if she really believed what she was saying to Abby and Devon. Probably a lot of the reason she feels somewhat better is because her hormones have been settling back to her normal levels.

Oy, Sally's at loose ends again. That's never been a good place for her to be. Hope she doesn't do something disastrous, mainly because I'd hate to see those gigantic hypocrites Jack and Lauren be proven right about her.

I have the feeling that whatever solution Mariah has come with while Tessa was away is going to be as batshit crazy as this whole Baby By Committee has been.

Nice to see, though, that Baby Chancellor has grown from a full sized salami to a loaf of rustic sourdough by now.  I'm waiting for the day we see the cast and crew ripping that blanket off and feasting on whatever food product is filling in for Baby Chancellor that particular day.  

Somebody bring the dip!

Devon's giving me gas.

He's bugging the living crap out of me right now.  He's wafting around town like some really good weed that's taken sentient form and giving his fortune cookie advice with a monotone gravitas that momentarily obscures the reality that everything he's saying sounds like it was ripped off from one of those desk "Thought for the Day" calendars.

Show used to do this with Neil sometimes, turn him into the town wise man, floating around town dispensing light-weight platitudes.  It was the only time I disliked him.

What bug crawled up Lauren's behind and died?  It's not all that long ago that she praised Sally and defended her, and even when she fired her, she did it with some sadness and regret.  Now, because Victoria decided to wear Sally's schmatta and not hers, Ms. Spectra has caused the earth to reverse its rotation and set in motion the Apocalypse?  

In that case, I hope Lauren hires Chelsea when she returns.  That'll teach her.

Senior moment, I already committed on Monday.  On to Tuesday. 
 

Tuesday 10/19

Who’s the bigger baby, Nostrils the Weasel or Banana Breath the Gorilla?  

Who’s more demented, Lily for wanting Nostrils the Weasel or Jack for wanting Rodan the Petty?  Jack should just take up with Lily so they can rescue each other. 

A lying conniving criminal. Was Banana Breath the Gorilla talking about Ashland or himself. Isn’t Banana Breath the Gorilla “in love” with a lying conniving criminal?  Not to mention petty. 

I had a flashback to “The Godfather” with Victor sitting in his chair and trying to explain things to Fredo.  

Yes, Nostrils the Weasel does look like a one of those marble statues in the garden (not). TIIC had to stuff a sock in his pants to make him look anatomical correct. Besides, playing hide the salami instead of going to the reception is rude. They should have left the palazzo and gotten a hotel instead of soiling someone else’s sheets. I can’t imagine sex is any good since instead of cuddling, Nostrils the Weasel is thinking about business in the afterglow. 

I like Tessa and Noah together as friends. Maybe friends with benefits. Mariah can’t be upset because she did want a baby and who better than her brother 😜

Welp, looks like the whole Now Playing the Role of Bowie: Dominic story has officially hit the FF level of interest for me. 🙄 I love Camryn Grimes and I will watch her in pretty much anything, but I can't anymore with this dumb storyline. While I'm all in for LGBTQIA storylines, I'm hoping NuNuNuNoah snatches back whatsherface from Mariah so we can finally focus on something else besides that dumb babydoll who clearly hates his own biological mother/egg with a passion.

Wednesdays 10/20 

Nostrils the Weasel didn’t run into Victor. He went looking for Victor. 

What the fuck is Lauren’s malfunction?  Is she dressed for Halloween or is an example of what not to wear in public. I guess the coat was helpful in hiding and lady stains in her ugly dress. Lauren your designer’s dress looked like a garbage bag next to Sally’s design. Lauren, you knew Olive wasn’t that exited about the wedding dress at the fitting. Hey Lauren, I got news for you, if Olive didn’t like Sally’s wedding dress, she never would have worn it.  Didn’t Lauren’s designer get paid. So what’s Lauren’s beef?  Oh, I guess it wasn’t Chloe undying loyalty to her.  Lauren, you don’t employ Chloe is Sally so aren’t their loyalty to Newman Media?  You know the company that pays them. So Lauren just had to play the family card.  Lauren is not related to Summer, she’s upset because a good friend “Rodan the Petty is upset. Is Rodan the Petty has taught Lauren how to be petty also. Chloe you have nothing to be ashamed of.  Lauren I do think you’re not the bad ass you think you are. Rodan the Petty tried and failed so what is your play. Anything you do to Sally hurts Chloe and ultimately Adam/Victor.  

Jack, now I got news for you. If Adam is playing with fire, than your playing with a massive blaze. 

Do TIIC know anything about air pollution?  Private Jets and Carter Jets are all they know. So Banana Breath the Gorilla and Noah have to get to London but there are at least 7 nonstop commercial flights from the Tuscany Region to London a day.  I guess Banana Breath the Gorilla is not wanted in Milan. 

What’s with Lily acting like a love starved sexually repressed woman who makes love at the drop of a hat?  Is that’s because Lily was married to Cane who only made love “down under”?  

Banana Breath the Gorilla needs a wambulance to bring him to his pity party at a table of one or two if Noah chooses to listen to his tails of woe and frustration.  

I have a burning question. If Ashland Locke is not Ashland’s real name, did he ever have his name legally changed?  Or is that a non issue like showers after sex and making number one or two. 
 

ETA:  Olive chose to wear Sally’s design so Lauren your beef should be with Olive not Sally or Chloe. Lauren is a wimp not a bad ass because she probably won’t confront Olive.

What was with Sharon's space polymer dress? That seemed more like a Mommies Do Happy Hour look than a coffeehouse barista look to me.

Oh wow, they added another bag of flour to the Baby Dominic Swaddled Bundle™. (New from Mattel!) He seems to have a noticeable approximation of a head now. 😉

Ashley actually mentioned Brad's name in the same breath as Victor's when she referenced Tater's other grandparents. I am shocked.

Lily: you did delete the Gaines video, right Billy?
Billy: Lily, you saw me do it.
Lily: well the people on the interwebs say that's neither a confirmation nor a denial.
Billy: so who you gonna believe, me or those online psychos?
The World: we got your "online psychos" right here, buddy. Come get some.

Oh Lily, finding a ladybug in his shoe would unnerve Billy. All Victor has to do is look at him sideways and Billy starts bouncing off the walls.

How is it after all the years they were together, Sharon and Nick never visited the Palazzo? She was a wee bit snarky today about Phyllis getting to see it before she did.

Hmm, something is going on with Noah. Is the issue back in London or here in GC?

Heh, knowing Victor, Gaines is on a slow boat to Malaysia or to the southern tip of South America. Locked inside a crate. Billy and Lily really don't need to be giving it so much thought. 🙄

Noah described London as the center of the hipster and artist universe. Huh, I thought that was located somewhere between San Francisco and Seattle. 🤔

Pssht, Chance isn't dead. Looks to me like TPTB are just kicking the can down the road again instead of definitely killing him off or recasting the role.

Let me guess: Victoria has booked her and Ashland tourist slots on the ISS. A bargain at only $55M each!

Sigh, Tessa, you're probably going to regret indulging Mariah's continuing obsession with Tater. Sorry. 🙁

Quote

no gay to straight switcheroo

I remain of the opinion that both Mariah and Tessa are bisexuals who are in a same-sex relationship now. I could see Tessa getting with Noah again but it'd probably be one-time, drunken hookup kind of thing. The writers have invested a lot of time in establishing Mariah and Tessa as being truly in love. I don't see them blowing that up just to let Noah be some kind of emo interloper getting payback on his sister. I still wonder though why they won't let Tessa and Mariah get married. Other couples on this show would've been married, divorced, and remarried by now.

Now what is Chloe’s malfunction?  So Adam and Sally are seen together and Chloe jumps to conclusions because they are happy.  Chloe didn’t seem to have Sally’s back. Chloe said you and not us.  Mrs Chipmunk is getting very chippy. 

Here we go again with Lauren stomping her feet declaring it’s me me me. It’s all about me. Why should Sally respect Lauren now that she was unceremoniously fired.  Why is Chloe so worried about Lauren?  What has Lauren ever done for her?  Lauren now wants Chloe to fire Sally?  Let’s see how that works out. Chloe you will be out before Sally, contract or no contract. 

Devon, Conner is in boarding school so how can Adam go home to him everyday?  

Bowie is unhappy because he can’t breath beside being hot wrapped up in that blanket. But all in all, that blanket has more acting skills than Rodan the Petty, Nostrils the Weasel, Summer the Duck, and Banana Breath the Gorilla put together.  Plus Bowie is a better conversationalist.

I now officially hate Lauren. She fired Sally. Sally should have pulled her gown stunt specifically to get back at Lauren. And then some. Now I'm hoping Michael has an affair with Sally. Screw you forever Lauren. Does Jill own half of Fenmores? Or is it a part of some Jabot conglomerate? Either way, Jill or Jack could make Buttbiscuit king of it and then he can fire Lauren.

Friday 10/22

 

Today the role of fairy godmother is played by Sharon. 

Today’s the role of frumpy married woman is played by Olive. From blushing beautiful bride to stodgy business woman in a day. 

Gee, Jesse’s story almost sounds like what Banana Breath the Gorilla is going through. Jesse is jealous of Ashland and Banana Breath the Gorilla is jealous of Olive and Adam. 

Nostrils the Weasel can’t see past his nostrils. Victor and Adam set the trap and Nostrils the Weasel will walk right into it. Now Nostrils the Weasel will focus on where in the world is Jesse and miss the coup de gras to CM. 
 

I’m secure in the fact that I’m not a dirty old man when I say I take joy in the fact that Mariah and Tessa are still totally in love and are back to kissing each other.

I’ve watched this soap for years and realize it would be very hard to replace Sharon Case as the character of Sharon. However. She’s such a “mail it in” actress at this point (and frankly, for years past) that I’m not sure we’d even miss her. And who is picking her wardrobe lately?! Holy moly! I’d love to have a Sharon with a personality and some “umph”. The current one is so incredibly boring and I don’t envision her getting any better. It’s time for her to retire.

Sharon really did used to have chemistry with just about everyone they paired her with; she managed to actually get through the Victor marriage without having a breakdown while onscreen.  But she is terrible right now; maybe because she is dating Adam in real life?  But I have a feeling that Sharon and Adam are endgame on this show; that any other actress he gets paired with will die on the vine because he will always always pine for Sharon. This is how the show rolls.

Jason Thompson's recast of Billy Abbott I call NotBilly, and AKA Nostrils the Weasel,  Buttbiscuit or Nostrils, for obvious reasons.

 

Darvon, AKA Rev. Darvon, is Devon Hamilton. The character doesn't do much of anything with his billions (sedated), until he recently started roaming Genoa City spouting empty platitudes for hand-holding and wounded feelz triage (picking up where his deceased, adopted father, Neil Winters, left off). Again, not actually helping anyone with their self-inflicted situation. Truth to the Sob Sisters is not Darvon's position.

Mariah is still wearing that way too short/way too tight dress today. She keeps yanking it down which is a real clue that it doesn’t fit. And I hate when women with larger thighs wear dresses or skirts that hit them in the widest part. It just makes their legs look heavy and short. Get a mirror.

Mariah is still wearing that way too short/way too tight dress today. She keeps yanking it down which is a real clue that it doesn’t fit. And I hate when women with larger thighs wear dresses or skirts that hit them in the widest part. It just makes their legs look heavy and short. Get a mirror.

Get a better costumer. If she's pulling at it, it means she's uncomfortable.

I have to FF ANYTHING to do with Amanda and that murder trial or whatever it is now!   Zero interest in that storyline too.  

Noticed Mariah pulling down that dress too, very distracting and she seems to be aware of it so why not kybosh it?

This show is so frustrating. It can be so very good and then we have days like today where absolutely nothing happens. 

What does it say when a legacy character like Chance (Phillip Chancellor IV) is dead and my reaction is

Who was Chance working for?  DOJ, military intelligence, or the CIA?  So whoever Chance was working against had to be a pretty large operation if a single bomb was used to level the building where Chance “might have been”. Why would the State Department put out a statement if it was a building used in an undercover operation?  The Department of State deals with foreign policy and not domestic matters.  I’m just curious because no matter what, Chance is a goner.  

Give me a fucking break with Nostrils the Weasel trying to get Rey the Chin to open an investigation.  It’s NOT IN REY THE CHIN’S JURISDICTION!!!  Rey the Chin informs Nostrils the Weasel of that fact but he’s willing to help because it’s Adam. It seems that Rey the Chin was more receptive to Nostrils the Weasel’s request than to Sharon’s request to find Mariah. It’s Nostrils the Weasel MO to mention only the negative about Adam but leaves out that Jesse is an extortionist/blackmailer.  Rey the Chin is actually lying by omission to Sharon because he never mentioned anything about Adam. 

Devon, what is your malfunction. You should keep your opinions to yourself because you are actually making the situation worse. I didn’t hear you say what if Sutton walks and it could have been Amanda’s testimony needed to get him convicted. Michael, who’s not the sharpest tool in the shed, needs all the help he can muster.  

Nostrils the Weasel gives Adam an earful about Adam’s intimate goal is to impress Sharon🙄.  Nothing about his ultimate goal to keep Olive under his thumb 😜

Brava Sharon brava giving Nostrils the Weasel a tongue lashing.  Best acting Sharon has done in months  

Rodan the Petty and Banana Breath the Gorilla swapping spit 🤢🤢🤮.  I would rather tongue kiss a pig’s ass hole than Rodan the Petty.  Getting help from Rodan the Petty is like getting hemorrhoids. Every time you take a shit, there is a pain in your ass.

Huh, was Michael suggesting that Sutton had already tried to pay off some potential jurors? Because otherwise I don't see why people living in GC would care about him since he doesn't live in their town or their state, and the murder he's accused of happened decades ago.

I still don't get why a media company is now producing bespoke clothing, and having the owner's sister wear said clothing is considered a fashion coup by other media. But I loved Sally playing Adam's "strictly business" card back at him.

Hmm, how is it that Nick is still putting up with snark from both of his baby mamas about each other? That is so old it's begun fossilizing. No one's looking to start the Shick vs. Phick wars again, are they? Ugh.

Meanwhile, what was Phyllis wearing today? That skirt looked to me like someone had crumbled up some wrapping paper, vomited a kale smoothie on it, and then sewn it together like a skirt. Bleh. 😾

Wouldn't it be considered unethical for a defendant's former attorney to testify against them? At the Law & Order night school of TV jurisprudence, I believe we were taught it was fruit of a poisonous tree. 😉

Sharon, Billy went to Rey because he can count on Rey to get hard at the possibility of Adam being in criminal trouble. You're just mad you can't get Rey that excited even if you use both hands and a mouthful of crushed ice. 😏

Interesting how Rey was lying to Sharon about what Billy's up to wrt Adam. That likely won't end well.

Looks like Nick got some sun in Italy. And he's tightened up the dad bod a bit.

Ehh, if Abby's going to continue wearing bodycon clothing I think she needs to ask her mommy what kind of undergarments she wears. Ashley's fit was totally smooth--front and back--while Abby's was certainly not. Tacky.

OMFG, Billy, get a life. Your neverending vendetta against Adam will not bring Delia back.

Oh okay, Michael's plan is to use Hilary's memory to make the Sutton case relevant to the GC jury pool. Guess the MWTs have thought it through. 🤔

Does Sally not know Billy has already tried to kill Adam? What more could Adam have to fear from Billy? Whatever, she does not want to get in the middle of that mess. The life she saves might be her own.

Sharon delivering the real talk to Billy. Too bad she's more worried about Adam than her husband.

Oh Wow!  We had the ultimate episode today, just what we've all been waiting for.  We had an episode of ButtBiscuit talking to Rey Rey - and in a BOOTH, no less!  (I do love a booth).

The drama......it gripped.  

One question, though.......why does ButtBiscuit look like he had his lips injected with worms and then the worms just up and died in there.  Quite a look.

And why does Rey Rey always hold his head back so you can't help but look up his nose?  Is he trying to compete with ButtBiscuit as to who's packin' the biggest nostrils?  

Piker - ButtBiscuit will always win that contest.

I felt so sorry for Ashley being stuck in the Chancellor House with all those grim Baby Chancellor cult members.  She looked like she wished she was wherever Chance is.  Chance isn't dead, he just doesn't want to come home to any of that.

If Chance has been killed, though, that's a pretty rough start in life for a two month old Cotto Salami named Dominic.  

I have a special place in my heart for orphaned lunch meats.

What the FUCK was Devon blathering on about today?  Every time he opens his mouth lately I feel like I'm being mugged by a Hallmark Card knock-off.  I bet his sympathy card to Abby has bunnies on it.

The entire Abby/Chance relationship became a dead end by using Mariah as an incubator/milk machine.

I expect TIIC to allow Abby to mourn and bury the assumed dead Chance. She'll cling to Darvon for his empty banalities, who will be responsive, but torn between Abby/Bowie and Hillary 2.0. Then, TIIC will spring a new and improved come back from the dead Chance on his confused/guilty wife and jealous Darvon.

Army Intelligence, maybe? That could send Chance overseas, but how does that work with Chance and Atonal's association/criminal activities in Las Vegas?

Does it matter what Chance was doing, why or where?

We're told Chance Go Boom!

If NotBilly was so concerned about Gaines, why didn't he go to the Italian Carabinieri and report Jesse missing? Because NotBilly's relationship with Gaines (blackmail, bribery, conspiracy, yellow journalism) is less than legitimate, and raises more questions than NotBilly can answer without implicating himself or Victoria. 

Going to Det. Rey Rey to slander Atonal without evidence, works for NotBilly in two ways. It alerts (real or imagined by NotBilly) Rey Rey that Atonal is back to his old tricks and misdemeanors. And it inflames Rey Rey's simmering jealousy of Atonal.

It's not important to TIIC or NotBilly that Gaines disappearance is purely a jurisdictional issue. It's another weak writer's contrivance by TIIC to insert Rey Rey and Sharon into the Locke-ness Saga.

One of Darvon's sedative bromides went sideways. Not well received. I almost expect Darvon to be relieved to hear Chance Go Boom! never to return. All the more time to play as Bowie's daddy.

Not that Darvon would admit that out loud ... A little too mercenary for the Rev Darvon of the Church of the Magic 8 Ball.

Isn't NotBilly is a little devil? He knows how to push the buttons of a jealous husband, married to a faithless woman.

An interesting plan, that could go awry for the Newman's and Locke-ness.

Sharon put on her Joan of Arc armor and went to war to protect her Atonal Adam. No one should attempt to defame Atonal when Sharon is in earshot.

Another win for NotBilly today. Now he knows how deeply invested Sharon is in Atonal ... And he knows exactly how to use it to antagonize Atonal and find out where Gaines has been secreted.

It seems a waste to drop Eileen Davidson in the middle of this nonsense. She won't be around long enough to be effective. What happened to Ashley and Victor's agreement to find Chance and drag his useless carcass back to Genoa City?

Rev. Darvon needs to return to the Church of the Magic 8 Ball and wait for the aggrieved/bereaved/deceived to come to him for hackneyed affirmations.

What a bore.

The only thing I got out of Nick/Phyllis today...I'm never quite seen a situation where two characters bring up some legit points against the other, but I hate them both and the points make me hate them both even more.

Nick responding to Phyllis questioning where he just was- "Nowhere interesting".

Truer words never spoken from this manchild.

Now we see how the writers are going to bring Sharon back to Adam. Any heat Adam has for Sally; no matter how good the two of them are together onscreen (compared to Adam and Sharon) ….Sharon will always be Adam’s tortured soulmate. And endgame.

And what could be as bad (but never worse) as The Surrogate Story? A trial over the murder, decades ago, of Amanda’s father by her grandfather. Neither character we had ever heard of until recently. The only character worth pursuing/keeping in this fiasco is her sister. Nick may need a love interest; but he may pine a bit for…wait for it…Sharon.

Not me. Nick's known his dad his entire life and Victor's been the same as he is now probably since before he got dropped off at the orphanage. 

And then there's Noah who has returned to the childhood home that he grew up in and which has not been redecorated ever, unless you want to count that time that the monkey ashtray went missing, and he's all, thank you for letting me stay at your house Rey Rey, who has lived there less than a year?

I started calling Victoria Olive Oyl because she was skinny and lanky. But Victoria, for the last couple of days has the same hair doo so the look is complete. 

Nostrils the Weasel is actually committing slander spreading unfounded accusations against Adam. If he was publishing unfounded accusations, Nostrils the Weasel would be protected by absence of malice. 

Why is Noah residing with Sharon in her little cottage when Banana Breath the Gorilla has a large house?  Noah asked about Faith but where is his concern for Christian?  

Rey the Chin, get your dirty shoes off of the couch. Where you raised in a barn?  

Wasn’t Tuscany suppose to be the most romantic spot on earth?  So why didn’t Olive and Ashland do their honeymoon there. So now a private island is the most romantic spot on earth. Yes, Olive take a man who has cancer to the middle of no place. At least Tuscany has doctors and hospitals in case of an emergency. 

What is Ashland’s malfunction?  Nostrils the Weasel tried to destroy him and his marriage but yet he’s not fully on board with the downfall of Nostrils the Weasel.  Olive is on board though. Good for her. 

Seeing new Noah more and more I’m starting to notice her gives off more of an Adam vibe than a Banana Breath the Gorilla vibe. Adam with all his faults is capable of a cool calm perspective where Banana Breath the Gorilla is mostly on edge and very confrontational. Adam is more of an adult where Banana Breath the Gorilla is a man child. 

Nostrils the Weasel is trying to use Wonder Woman’s lariat of truth on anyone he comes in contact with. Sally has an excellent Bull Shit meter and with Nostrils the Weasel, it’s flashing red.  You can’t Bull Shit a Bull Shitter. 

Is Ashland a goner?  Not if Natey Nate Nate has anything to say about it. (Speculation).

If Nick and Phyllis are a couple why aren’t they living together?  Seems they just get together for sex or a convo at the hotel.

I though Nick had a large apartment/ condo or something.  He has a house?  I remember a long long time ago he had talked about building a house….can’t remember who he was with at the time.

Yep. I pointed that out when he first showed up at the wedding. Interesting casting choice. I wonder if that is what they were going for?

Lol, Sharon. Billy's attacks on Adam have nothing to do with you? Girl, bye. You're beside yourself trying to defend Adam instead of letting him fight his own battles like the grown-a$$ man he is.

It's a sad day when you have trouble reading your lines off a prop right in front of your face. Maybe it's time for someone to retire. Just sayin'. 👻

Nick said he and Phyllis are not understanding each other. Right there with ya, fella. Whatever this argument between you and Phyllis is, it makes absolutely no sense to me. Maybe the MWTs could prepare a white paper outlining the salient points for those viewers not fluent in Phickspeak.

A private island for a honeymoon. Again? Abby and Chance just did that, Victoria. So unoriginal. 🙄

Have Adam and Victor forgotten that ChancComm is a subsidiary of Chancellor Industries? They can't expect to make an attempt at snatching up ChancComm without Jill showing up to do her best Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest imitation. (NSFW because Joan had a potty mouth.)

What's Ashland up to? In that convo with Adam and Victor he seemed to be acting a little sus about being read in on their plans against Billy. His grin was kinda fake to me.

Sally, NO! Please stop making these messy little scenes with Jack. That is not a winning path for you to be on.

The next Vera Wang? Please. Either Sally is delusional or the European fashion media is. IMO Vera Wang wouldn't have designed that dress on her worst day. Maybe Sally is the next Velma Dang, tee hee.

Wait, was Ashland lowkey threatening Victoria's kids? Whoa! There isn't going to be a honeymoon if he doesn't clean that up quickly.

Annnddd Victoria didn't take Ashland's bait. Poor guy started babbling incoherently for a couple of minutes. He's going to have to use a different angle to accomplish whatever he's trying to do.

I just can't with Jack giving Phyllis advice about handling with Nick. There's being understanding and tolerant, and then there's being a tool. AFAIC Jack is building a nest in the toolbox.

Was that a chem test between Billy and Sally? Meh. Let's not go there. 😒

When all else fails bring up the sickness, right Ashland? You're getting kind of predictable.
