..oh, who am I kidding.  Of course she's this stupid.But my question is WHY Sharon continues to be like this after all the growth she's made as a human being

because this is the way jg likes to write sharon.....weak, stupid, trashy...

makes the other weak. stupid and trashy women look better.

You are absolutely correct valleycliffe. When MY was fired and I found out that JG was coming back, I knew what that meant for Sharon - all of the work that SSM did to "fix" Sharon was for nothing. I won't be shocked by anything that JG's Sharon does- he's a fucking hack!

It's ironic that they fired Loren Lott because they claimed not to know how to write for Ana -they don't even know how to write for 90 percent of the characters on the show.

MS as Phyllis and bringing Chelsea back didn’t keep the show #1? I am shocked.

Not to mention Kyle’s lame secret. A girl got drunk and you took her to the hospital where you paid her Dad off?! That’s what they came up with that required Theo to act like he was holding on to NASA secrets? Terrible.

Why on earth would they be bringing Luca's character back?  What possible storyline would there be that connects him?

Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems like one more actor from the past being dumped in for a hot minute just to make us tune in.  No real new ideas or storylines, just dumping old faces/characters in ...because they can.

So according to Worn on TV, Lola's wedding gown was made by the Y&R wardrobe department. Which explains a lot and that's all I'm going say. 🙁 However, it's basically a knockoff of this Jenny Yoo dress:

Abby's maid of honor dress was also a Jenny Yoo. Funny to me how Abby got to wear the original dress but Lola had to make do with a cheap(er) imitation. The difference in quality was glaring, IMO.

And while I'm over here still carping about the wedding attire, I also saw on WoTV that Summer's dress was a Halston design. I don't know if it was vintage Halston or whoever is working under his nameplate now but yeesh, not a good look. I don't know of anyone on Y&R who could've made that dress work.

I mean, the least they could have done was make sure the dress actually fit correctly. It was at least a size too big on top.

Awww, nuts, they're bringing Topo Gigio back????  The streets of Genoa City aren't slick enough with slime already?   How much you wanna bet he's been hiding up ButtBiscuit's nose all this time and he's the one pretending to be Delia.

If they want to bring someone back, how about Chance Chancellor??  Show teased enough already with the promise of him, deliver already!

But no, we get the bastard son of Fievel the Mouse and Lamb Chop.

He was involved in that whole Marco thing. His wife was the one on the boat with Jack, then got with Noah. I can't remember who Luca got together with but I think it was Summer.

Who the hell is Luca? I must have been on some kind of a bender back then because I have no memory of him.

Remember Marissa, who helped Jack when he escaped from the island with dead Kelly?  She was on the ship with El Capitan, and blew it up while she and Jack escaped.  Back in PV, she hooked up with Noah and then her boyfriend/ex-husband/nail salon employee/who knows?, Luca showed up and hijinks of the most depressing kind ensued.  Then he got involved with Dummer - that was like watching a colonoscopy on slow motion - Nick grunted a lot, Victor glowered a lot, yadda yadda, he got arrested and disappeared in the arms of the law.  I'd assumed he'd been made into a beanie baby by now.

It was the Marco Anicelli time in Genoa City, not a good period for anyone.

El Capitan,

Now, he would be great to bring back. He and Det. Hardon and MEK. That would help with their crappy ratings waaay more than bringing back the Staph Infection and MCE.

Yes @boes !  I think Luca also was engaged to Summer and admitted to her the he caused the oil rig explosions and Jack walked in on them arguing about it, and I think Luca either hit her or threatened to kidnap her.....maybe both?  I remember Jack called the police and they came to Summer's apartment and dragged Luca away.....

He was involved with Adam somehow, too, but I just don't remember how.

Here's a pic of Luca & Summer, if that jogs your memory, for those of you who don't remember his year long stint!

ETA:  Is it just me, or has Summer had some "modifications" to her bustline since this picture was taken?

She most certainly has!  Either that or my wide screen tv makes everything and I do mean everything look bigger.

Great recall on Luca!  I remember he and Marissa, had a kid together?  And his father was some business rival or partner with Victor?

thanks - I amaze myself that I can remember something on a soap from three or four years ago, yet can't tell you where I put my keys two hours ago! 

Yes to the other two questions.....I think he used that child to get Marissa away from Noah and back to him!  But I don't recall how Luca's family were involved with Victor -  I feel like with Victor, it was a set up of some sort, you know, the "per usual" with Victor.

That was utterly terrible storytelling, giving Luca and Marissa an unseen, plot point child that no one gave two fucks about, including the characters. Oh, and there was a truly amateur love scene between Noah and Marissa that was as sexy as a sandpaper dildo. Good times, good times...

Yeah, and I seem to recall someone likening Noah's advances onto Marissa on the couch to an aged tabby's climbing style.

 It's a gorgeous dress, but if Y&R wanted to copy it why did they leave out the design's most distinguishing feature? The low v neck.  It's obvious the styling of that particular dress was designed around that feature. If they wanted Lola in something more modest they should have copied something more modest. How silly.

Boy, I just....

NO. Adam and Sharon had chemistry, but that's all they had. There was nothing healthy or positive about that relationship. The only thing I enjoyed about Shadam was watching Nick's self-righteous ass beat his chest as someone managed to prove as real competition  for her (because it wasn't enough for Nicholas Newman to have married the wildebeest he cheated with and knocked up, Sharon was supposed to never move on).

I need to be honest, we've had enough twins and dopplegangers…..I'd rather a weird, bizarre retcon where she was kept alive somehow (but lost the baby).

Returning from the dead is a soap staple, I'd love to see them go that route!

It's been a looong time since I've been active here and have been catching up on the Y&R news.  So the writers didn't know what to do with Ana, IMO the prettiest woman on the show?  Well golly gee, I have an idea.  Why don't you give her a story you would have given snotty Summer?  Or even better, Tessa?  They shove the Rosales family down our throats, but Devon, a Chancellor, who by the way has been on for years, can't have his own family?

I like this idea.  Stitch passes through town just long enough to report that Kelly is dead but revealed to him that she killed Delia.  We never see Stitch or Kelly again and the show can finally move on from nearly 6 years of the wretched Delia story.

Even if Adam didn't do it, he thought he did and kept his trap shut as his son got Delia's eyes. Sure acted guilty AF, and he's still a POS to me.

But hey, I guess I can suck it up if this gives Billy one less reason to act like a blow hard and wallow in his own misery about losing a kid that he was maybe truly invested with for half her life at best.

Wait....didn't Adam have "evidence" of hitting Delia?  Like a piece of clothing or something stuck to his car?  I remember him finding it and putting it away in a drawer or something....maybe even burning it in the fireplace.....

Wasn't his car damaged, too?

I guess that doesn't mean he actually hit her, but still........

Her scarf was caught in the car's undercarriage, but it could have been blowing in the wind after someone else hit her.

Kelly killing Delia was a good story idea, especially with the original Kelly actress.  But I also liked the idea of Drinki being the one who ran over poor Delia.  After all, Drinki is prolific in the accidental horrific killing genre.  Didn't they kind of suggest it by making it vague that she was driving that same night on the country roads that must exist between Delia's school and Victoria's house?  Wouldn't Delia go to school in GC rather than out in the rural parts?

And remember that Drinki is G.C.'s resident serial killer.  She's actually gonna be profiled on next seasons "Mindhunter"

Yeesh, looks to me like Josh is deep in the delusional weeds, especially with his comparing himself to Harding Lemay. Serving notice now, he better keep Agnes Nixon's name out of his mouth or there will be trouble. Mal tried pulling some weak homage to Agnes and see where he is now? That's right: Not Here! 😈

And wow, talk about trying to rest on your laurels. Here we are, two Adams and three Billys later (please correct me if my hasty math is wrong) and Josh is still trying to rebuild the show around that storyline. 😐
