It was always boring. I stopped watching after the first episode. The Bell soaps had a dumb habit of drawing out storyline so long that by the time the climax came i.e. baby daddy reveal or the usual cliched soapy trope the audience no longer cared. IOW, pretty much like all soaps. This kind of "storytelling was just barely OK in the 50's but in by the 80's onward viewers were leaving in droves. Y&R and B&B garbage.

They gave David Hasselhoff his big break before he went on to star in a show with a talking car who was smarter than he was.

Robert Newman is taking over the role of Ashland. They should hire Zimmer to play his ex wife Tara.

Yeah, because Zimmer weighs about 100 lbs more than the actress who played Tara. Robert Newman can open the door and fat Kim is standing there. He could say- what the HELL happened to you. You’re a 100 lbs heavier than when I last saw you last year.

More like 200 lbs heavier (and 50 years older). But I’d love it if it happened - JaBottoms reaction to her would be priceless.

Kimmer loves her drinks and mac & cheese! Yes, smart ones. Get Kim on Y&R because Robert Newman is there. That’ll work. The ratings will be fatter than Kim’s stomach. And put Kim in a scene with Beth Maitland! Who would be fatter?

Young and the Restless Star Claims He Was Fired for 'Inadvertently' Violating Covid Policy

Richard Burgi is out at "Young and the Restless" after -- at least according to him -- accidentally violating CBS' Covid-19 safety protocols.

The actor, best known for his work on "Desperate Housewives" before he was cast on the soap to play new character Ashland Locke in March 2021, opened up about why he was canned from the show on Tuesday night after first revealing his exit over the weekend.

"My wife had said something about it being the show's choice, which is true. But the reality is I naively and inadvertently violated the show's Covid policy," he began in an Instagram Story video.

He explained that he tested positive for Covid around Christmas, after traveling to the East Coast to be with his family. He said he followed the most recent CDC guidelines by isolating for five days, before coming back and testing negative twice at the studio before showing up to work.

"But it was not within the show's guidelines, which is a 10-day protocol. So I inadvertently violated the show's Covid rules and protocols," he added. "I felt terrible about it. I still do. It bothers me mightily but it is what it is. I respect whatever the show's decision is. They're doing the best they can, as we all are."

According to Soap Opera Digest, Robert Newman has already been tapped to play Ashland Locke going forward and his episodes will begin airing next month.

"I truly wish the gentleman who's coming in to play Ashland a wonderful time, he's going to be working with the most incredible actress and a great, great cast," Burgi said of his replacement. "It's an amazing show, I have nothing but good memories and good wishes for it."

Burgi must be an asshole and they were just looking for a reason to get rid of him. He seems like he’d be an asshole. Something doesn't add up.
