Now that he has no storyline, there is no reason to keep this incompetent actor. Begone DG!

Something has gone wrong at Y&R. In the soap glory days, even the most popular actors like Eric Braeden and Susan Lucci had to do the best with whatever story they were given. The show is on its last legs. How can actors have enough power to torpedo stories? If Goddard won't work with the material he is given, it is time for him to go.

Unless you have a conflict with an actor, you should not be making demands on what story you want. Especially if you are a mediocre actor and your character is one of the disposable ones.

Has the clock started for how long it takes for TPTB to dump JT for Billy Miller? Of course, Billy Miller might be heading right to prime time but I’m sure it’s being tossed around quite seriously at Y&R. I know AH would love it as would JM. They were really upset when he left. I always thought BM looked more like an Abbott. Which is odd since Thompson looks more like JW son than any of the previous Billy’s . Time will tell. It’s time that BM pecs come home where they belong. LOL!!!

Not really. It just looks that way. I've been sitting on the "r-word" in regard to this matter for a few days now. There's probably another "ism" that applies too but I'll leave that one alone.

YR just fired its only female Black actor who is a named character. I'm thinking if it looks like duck and quacks like a duck it likely is a duck. Or not.

(BTW, there is another soap forum where the posters are doing a fairly insightful analysis of what happened with the Ana character. I'm not going to link to it but it's easily found by googling. Warning, that site is not for the faint of heart.)

could you shoot me the link :)

Good on EB. What a load of crap. MTS looks fantastic. She's a very beautiful woman and any woman of any age would be lucky to look as good as she does.

I think it’s ridiculous for soap actors to argue with viewers on Twitter or Facebook. You’re people in the public eye, you’re on a soap opera and subject to criticism. And you get your feelings hurt when viewers critique or criticize you? If you’re that thin skinned, then maybe you need to find a different career. EB sounds just like Victor in his tweets. I think he’s gotten his character confused with him self. 

if someone wants to be a douche and tag them then they deserve whatever they get.. I applaud EB for defending his friend.

I don't know if her firing was race based or simply that the writers grew bored with the character. They probably thought it was a great idea at the time but then got distracted by the next shiny new toy. That's not a reflection on her in the least nor is it an excuse for them. Just a fact of life in TV land. 

I know I was bored with the character and her smugness. But she's a Millennial. That's how they roll lol!

You're right, Ninjapenguins, they're not.  I'm lucky enough to have a bit more than a baker's dozen of millenials in my tribe of a family and they're bright, engaged, funny and sometimes just as big a pain in the ass as I was at their age.  I see them engaged with the world around them in different ways than I was, because the world around them IS different than it was for me.  I love 'em and hope for the best and that fact that they are still bursting with hope while mine is depleted, well, that gives me hope.

I teach mainly millennials of university age. And I don't think I see any significant rise in the number of entitled or passive students compared to twenty years ago. There are always some at any point.

WOW! How dare Jordi complain about airtime.

He's 4th in episode counts so far this year! 

He should be thankful as hell. IMO his character, and his portrayal of him, are very blah. I don't understand the need for a Rey at all, Y&R doesn't use it's police department that often. Paul can handle the little that does come up.

Really? The actors who play ReyRey and Cane are begging for viewers to write, support, like their characters? If we liked you, you’d be in a major story line already. You two are not good actors.

Not necessarily true. We like PB and he doesn’t have. A major story. We like CG and Mariah is barely seen except when she’s propping Tessa or being a buddy to Kyle and/or Lola.

OMG, I'm watching this urban gangster movie from 2018 called Den of Thieves. It stars known tough guys Gerard Butler, 50-Cent, and Pablo Schrieber. Guess who pops up as I guess the owner of a German-themed cops and robbers dive bar? Eric Braeden! I'm only about 30 minutes in so I don't know if he gets to throw any punches but I'm already laughing at the thought. But this movie is definitely not a comedy.

ETA: Further investigation revealed that the movie's writer and director is EB's son who appears to be building an interesting body of work in the crime drama genre per IMDb.

Yeah, I watched part of that movie, too. I knew about EB's son's involvement, but after loving Pablo Schreiber in two seasons of American Gods, I was mostly watching to see what he'd do.

Action movies, oddly, make me snoozy, but I snapped right up when old Victor is seen sitting at the end of the bar for his cameo.

It wasn't a cameo per se, his character was called Ziggy Zerhusen.

I'm sad and a bit angry that Loren has been let go.  Ana, Elena and Devon were the biggest reason I was watching this show (I'm still chuckling over Loren's line delivery when Ana was told to take advice "from a guy who tweets all day") and am not happy that they've been back-burnered the last few weeks.  I'm not at all interested in Phyllis or Chelsea and have quickly tired of invincible, pointy Adam.  This is yet another short-sighted decision by soap powers-that-be.

ETA:  If Tessa has been put on recurring, what does that mean for Mariah?  They better not let CG go.

EAgainTA:  I don't care if Jordi goes.  Rey is a fucking snooze.
