JANICE LYNDE returns to Y+R as Leslie Brooks

Ashland turns out to be Brooks Lucas Prentiss.

Paul Rauch hired Janice Lynde TWICE

He hired her in 1979 to play Tracy DeWitt on AW, a mere six weeks after he hired Bill Espy to play Mitch Blake. Weird that he hired two top Y&R actors at the same time. Did he get them at a 2 for 1 sale? Rauch paired Tracy with stalwart town doctor from a prominent family, Russ Matthews, whom she ultimately married. When she left the show in 1981, he killed her in a car explosion.

Then in 1984 after he moved over to be EP of OLTL, Rauch hired Janice Lynde to play Laurel Chapin, a character who eventually married stalwart town doctor from a prominent family, Larry Wolek. When she left the show in 1986, Rauch killed her in an explosion.

Lately it seems like one day in Genoa City takes place over the course of four episodes. I am getting the suspicion that Ashland may have killed his father many years ago, possibly in self defense. The story could have been in the news, which is why he does not want to give his real name to anyone. I wish the show would bring Imani back to cause some trouble between Nate and Elena. Speaking of Nate, for a minute I thought he and Ashland were going to be f--k buddies. This past week, Phyllis and Ashley's outfits were obviously by the same designer, and Sharon and Abby's dresses were by the same designer. I really like the new Faith. She's cute and believable as a teenager. Moses is a real sweetie pie. The show may finally be giving Mariah a storyline.

There is new speculation Ashland will be Brad Eliot's son who supposedly died when he operated on him. It was actually the first Y&R story - Brad arrived to town, shattered and started over in GC, eventually marrying Leslie Brooks. Deidre Hall played the mother of the boy, Barbara Anderson.

by Anonymousreply 13September 21, 2021 1:27 PM

Ashland did not want anyone to know about his past and true identity, yet he tells the whole story (quite loudly) in a public place. Wouldn't it have made more sense if Ashland asked Nick to stop by Victoria's office, where they could have privacy? Fake Ashland and Real Ashland got matching tattoos when they were 20. Were the two men in a relationship? Perhaps that will be the next secret that Ashland has to confess to. I do not think Billy looks good in the suits they are having him wear.

I thought Friday's episode was good. I liked the scene between Adam and Billy. I think the two of them should just get a room and get it over with. I am looking forward to next week. Kyle, Summer, and Leslie Brooks will be on the show. Kyle has gotten a haircut, and it looks good on him. On another note, that red outfit was not flattering on Nikki.

[quote] Fake Ashland and Real Ashland got matching tattoos when they were 20.

Actually, the two twinks in love got the matching tattoos when they were just 16; and that's what led to them running away together. .. Bobby-Ashland said his abusive father saw the new ink and beat him up, so our young duo fled.

Perhaps they hustled along the Jersey boardwalk and beach towns for awhile before Real Ashland got the interview to be an intern at Camilla's TV station. They were so happy that night before the interview that I imagine Bobby was giving Real Ashland a blow job while he was driving, and that's what caused the car crash.

Courtney Hope was spectacular at the end of her arc on B&B (when they had her confess to taking that vapid blonde girl prisoner to perpetuate her "I'm dying" storyline), but most of her time on that show, she and her character were annoying and one-note.

That's kinda how I feel about Sally here; she's actually a terrific actress when they let her show vulnerability and emotion, but the actual, outsized character is grating and jarring and hard to root for. I think she'd be a wonderful foil for Melissa Claire Egan once Chelsea comes back, but both ladies should be allowed to play their characters as sane and grounded, and not do the Chelsea-as-crazy or Sally-as-wild BS that eats the show and has no emotional connections for the audience.

I detest Sally.I hate how propped she is. I wish CH would go back to BB. Alas her ass was fired 3 times in 3 years for a reason but she has friends in high places in the network so now we YR must uffer the consequences.

R13 I think Leslie's just there to tickle the ivories, and any speculation about some relationship between her and Ashland is just that.

Personally, I'd like to speculate that Leslie recognizes NuNoah and pulls Noah aside to ask him if he's heard from her son, Brooks, recently.

This is when Noah informs Leslie that he and Brooks broke up last month. "I caught your son in bed with an Instaho in London .. and as they say in Italy, 'We're finito!'"

Leslie apologizes for her son's cheating ways, adding that she thought Noah was a good influence on Brooks. She sighs, "Sometimes I think my 42-year old boy will never grow up!'

All Noah can say to her is, "I may like Hot Daddies, but in that relationship, I was the parent. Not my style."

The conversation ends with Leslie asking Noah to please call her if he does hear from Brooks. "Tell him to get in contact with me because Uncle Lucas dropped off some papers that need signing related to his trust fund. That always gets his attention."

Noah laughs, but later is seen looking at his phone with an incoming call from "BP."

Clever idea r29. Show could use something to shake it up.

As it is, its turned into the Ashland Show. Don't get me wrong, I like Richard Burgi a lot, but suddenly Ashland, a character we'd never eve heard of 12 months ago, is not only dominating the show, but that plotline is the only one remotely interesting.

by Anonymousreply 30October 12, 2021 10:38 PM

The Ashland arc is the best storyline the show has right now. So far, it's the only story they played this week, and I hope it stays that way. I like how all the action is taking place in one location (the palazzo). New Noah is cute. It was nice to see Summer and Kyle. I could have done without Nate reciting his best man's speech to Elena.

Before Brooks Prentiss shows up to beg Noah's forgiveness R29, Noah should have some 'uncle' sex with Ashland. .. It almost sounded like they were flirting when they met:

===========

Noah >> You must be (Hot Daddy!) Ashland. .. I'm Noah Newman, Nick & Sharon's son.

Ashland >> [Gazing intensely at Noah] I know EXACTLY who you are! (Let's hope you're a skank like you're mother!) .. It's a pleasure to FINALLY get to meet you! (Those half-naked photos of you working-out on Instagram are HAWT!)

. . .

Victoria >> [Making light of Ashland's dark humor about his possible death] My soon-to-be husband has a very warped sense of humor.

Noah >> It sounds like we'll get along just fine! (But does that 'warped' sense of humor include the growing BULGE I see in his pants? .. It looks like it's got a mean curve to it!)

Ashland >> From everything your aunt tells me I believe you're right. (But contrary to popular belief, I'm vers and could use a good pre-wedding pounding right about now by a hot young jock like yourself!)

Noah >> Well, I hope we find the time to get to know each other better. (uhhh .. Is there a steam room in this damn palazzo where we could go do that .. RIGHT NOW!?)

Ashland >> [To Victoria] You've never told me how charming (and straight-appearing) your nephew was. (PING!)

Noah >> [Blushing] Well, that's me. (Sweet, lovable Noah Newman .. mid-20s and still using the "bicurious" label.)

Just watched Janice in the 1980 horror film Beyond Evil, playing the ghost of the evil sorceress who possesses Lynda Day George. Made right before she joined Another World.

She played the short term recurring role of Gloria on General Hospital, owner of the spa where Ned and Monica had their fling. The part was originated by the very different looking Margaret Mason, very memorable as Linda Anderson on Days and Eve Howard on Y&R.

After all her raving about the dress she "created" for Victoria, I was expecting Sally's gown to be spectacular. But it didn't look any different from the gown Victoria was planning to wear. The women all look as if they're going to a toga party, in those slick, shower curtain-like outfits.

This would have been somewhere to spend a buck or two.

by Anonymousreply 46October 15, 2021 9:14 PM

R46 Yeah, the dress was very 'basic' to say the least. It looked like someone simply took a white choir gown, added some shoulder pads, and drew it in diagonally at the waist. BFD. Also, Victoria's hair was a mess (yeah, I know, not uncommon), but she's the bride for god's sake, and they did nothing special there as well. Sphyllis looked like she just crawled out of bed as well.

Now that Victoria and Ashland have gotten married, I really do not care why Camilla did not leave him anything in her will. At this point, can anyone trust what Jesse Gaines has to say. I think someone is going to kill Jesse, and we are going to have a whodunit on our hands.

Monday's scene between Ashland and Jesse is a pretty good one showcasing Richard Burg's actingi as we hear Ashland tick off all the reasons why Jesse Junior is such a pathetic looser. .. And R50, you're probably right. If Jesse doesn't get murdered, then perhaps Victor will somehow arrange to just have Jesse magically "disappear." (Throw him out of a plane with a parachute over Afghanistan or something .. lol) .. Maybe viewers won't even be privy to what's happened to Jesee, with this "mystery" becoming pesky Billy Boy's new crusade against The Old Goat.

R53 The two main sets at the palazzo are already repurposed. . The outdoor set is part of the Chancellor Park, which they sometimes don't use very much during in the winter anyway. And the main room is from the Newman Ranch (see below). Note the entry arch, which they removed the faux brick from for the palazzo, and the fireplace, which is exactly the same one at the palazzo. They covered the side windows with artwork.

Yes, the palazzo terrace is clearly from the original Chancellor Park set, which was far superior to the one they use now.

Now that you point it out, the palazzo parlour does have Newman living room. The palazzo is far better use of that set than as the Newman living room, which always seemed so dull and unexciting for the living room of the show's most prominent family.

by Anonymousreply 60October 21, 2021 7:15 PM

Can someone explain something about the Newman ranch? I didn't watch the show for ten years. I stopped watching before the ranch had been set on fire. How is it Nikki and Victor live in a 1950s faux Tudor, yet it's still called "the ranch"?

by Anonymousreply 61October 21, 2021 7:20 PM

R61 They call it a "ranch" because Victor actually breeds horses and maintains stables on the property. He had equestrian types who worked for him doing this This has been part of the Newman story since Victor & Julia Newman were introduced back in 1980.

And back in the mid-80s, they actually featured some outdoor horseback-riding scenes on occasion. Over the years, several events have taken place in the stables/barn. - just not that many in recent years. Many characters have lived in the adjoining tack room to the stable, and characters have had special horses that are theirs.

One of the first thing JFP did when she came on board was burn the ranch. That was her way of signalling she was in charge now by destroying one of the oldest sets on the show.

The original ranch set, while noting special, certainly had more character than the current ranch set. The current ranch set looks so very generic and lacks charm/character.

by Anonymousreply 64October 21, 2021 7:49 PM

Back in 2012 with JFP came in, she didn't like some of the old sets. She wanted to get rid of The Ranch altogether, and did a makeover of the Chancellor Estate.

Well, viewers (including MTS) hated the NuRanch and loathed the gray paint job on the Chancellor Estate.

I believe she also got rid of Glo Worm (via another fire). While this set had only been around for awhile, I believe most viewers really liked it and hated seeing it go.

Her taste was quite odd. Complete dreck.

by Anonymousreply 65October 21, 2021 7:51 PM

R64 . Yeah, the old ranch may have needed a makeover - since it hadn't been redecorated since Cassandra Rawlins worked on it for Jack back in the early 90s - but it didn't need to be completely destroyed. If they wanted Sharon to start the place on fire, fine. But they could have easily just damaged the place and used that as a plot point to renovate and redecorate it.

I liked the fact that JFP changed the orientation of the Chancellor Living room. It worked better to have the staircase at the rear of the set rather than at the left side of the set.

I was never a fan of the grey paint on the set, but a coat of paint was easy enough to change that.

by Anonymousreply 68October 21, 2021 8:09 PM

After JFP was ousted, was it Mal Young who created the smaller Newman den set to replace the foyer and living room set. That den set is where all scenes in the Newman house now happen. Or was it someone else who created that

While Newman den is a VAST improvement on the Newman living room, its also doesn't have nearly as much character as the original ranch set did.

Phyllis/Nick, Billy/Lily, and Adam were all using the same bedroom in the palazzo. Each room had the same scenery outside the window. Each room had the same bed headboard. Each room had the same wall sconce (on the right side of the room) near the door. But each of their rooms had different furnishings. I am curious how they filmed those scenes. Did they film all the scenes that took place in Phyllis/Nick's room first and then changed the furnishings so they could film all the scenes in Billy/Lily's room--and change again for Adam's bedroom scenes?

Meanwhile, smug Christian, who's always felt like second fiddle to half-brother, Connor, will then take the opportunity to really rub it in after he and Johnny have gone all the way.

Bill Bell set up a sibling dynamic in the Newman clan perfectly; a girl named Victoria and a boy named Nicholas.

Adam was the black sheep growing up off camera. I always thought they blew it by aging Adam so much, making him a MBA grad when he came on; he was practically Nick's equal in age.

The current landscape of Y&R kids is a mess.

Chelsea should have revisited custody after Billy and Vicki split up. There's no drama.

No more drama.

I wish Leslie would have stayed longer. They never showed Nikkis mom...why could not be Leslie was her mom, and she gave her up to play piano?

R95 Nikki and Casey's mom died back in 1979. Her death was the catalyst that brought the two sisters' pedo-rapist dad, Nick Reed, back to town. .. Do-gooder Brock unknowingly thought it would be a nice thing, if the two girls had their distant father around now that their mother had died. .. As I recall, Brock was able to track Nick down via some letter he'd found at the mother's place. It had an Oregon address, and he made contact with Nick. Of course. when Nick arrived in Genoa City, victim Casey was appalled, while ignorant Nikki was absolutely thrilled to have him back in their lives. .. But everyone soon found out what a sick creep Nick was. .. We also saw Nikki's mom in that stand-alone 2011 Christmas episode that they did with Nikki after she drunkenly crashed her car, and her mom appeared to her as a guardian angel telling Nikki that she was sent by John Abbott and Douglas Austin ..lol.

Also, Leslie isn't that much older than Nikki. Leslie Brooks started on the show in 1973. Nikki showed up in 1978. It's the Young and the Restless not the Young in the Hillbillies.

Why did Leslie come back? What was the point? I was out of the country and wasn't able to watch.

Leslie, who is now a famous pianist, played at Victoria's wedding. Tessa sang.

Not to go off topic but I suspect if they ever cancel another soap in the near future it will be DoOL. They've made several desperate and rather drastic moves which is saying a lot for them. They killed off Adrienne and paired Bonnie with Justin, they did that disastrous one year time jump, they did the primetime miniseries and now Marlena has been repossessed.

R96 The guardian angel/Nikki's mother was played by Missy Yaeger.

Days just got a 2 year pickup, driven mainly because Days is the #1 show on NBC Streaming and now Peacock. Most people who are now watching Days are streaming it. But also if you look at the demos, Days isn't really all that far behind any of the others. They've made it work. It won't last forever, but I wouldn't be shocked of Days made it to 60.

[quote] Days is the #1 show on NBC Streaming and now Peacock

Days may be #1 in Total Streams at Peacock -- based simply on the fact that they release 20+ EPISODES per month -- but I somehow doubt they are #1 in Total Unique Viewers during a reporting period.

We used to see this exact same phenomenon nearly a decade ago when Nielsen would occasionally release its VideoCensus/Net Ratings streaming numbers for the three networks. Daytime soaps like Y&R, GH, and DAYS were often near the top in the Total Streams column for their respective network. And it was the same with the late night talk shows, since they also put out five episodes per week. IOW, these type of shows win due to the QUANTITY of shows they put up, and t's the same viewers who keep coming back to stream them. But when it came to Total Unique Viewers - which counts far more - that was a different story.

by Anonymousreply 104October 23, 2021 9:04 PM

Days didn't get a 2 year renewal because of it's network #s, so clearly something else is at play. The general consensus is that it's streaming. Whether they are unique viewers or not, the numbers are good enough to get them 2 additional seasons and a 5 episode streaming special that was very well received.

So what was the deal with the contract negotiations breaking down forcing Summer and JaBottom out of the show.

What were they asking for that caused the negotiations to go sour? What was the show willing to offer vs what they were asking for?

Anyone have the inside scoop?

Well, with Chance presumed dead in a bomb explosion, they can bring him back with a NuFace and amnesia. Let's hope he's found refuge with a hot gay medic with whom he falls in love... lol! .. BTW, where the hell is NINA to weep and wail about her son? .. And will anyone think to tell Uncle Billy?

I wonder if we'll actually see the inside of a courtroom when the case against Sutton kicks off. It's been forever since we've seen the courtroom set with lawyers arguing their case before a judge. Somehow I imagine Amanda and Micheal will simply talk about trial events at Society and Crimson Lights with Sutton and his lawyer coming on the scene and interrupting them to complain about something.

Shirtless Nick is looking pretty tasty in Monday's episode. I think Morrow has slimmed down some; plus his scruff is being trimmed better. .. Too bad his sex session is with Syphyllis, though.. PHICK stans used to be crazy. Is there still a fanbase who cares about them as a couple?

by Anonymousreply 107October 24, 2021 12:41 AM

A pretty reliable insider on another site is saying Syphillis and Nick break up and Shmally s going to him. Thank god, I want that tacky Man face hoe away from Adam.

With Chelsea (unfortunately) returning, I thought they might rerun her and Nick, while Uncle Phyl gets back with Aunt Jack.

Oh, Sally. I keep forgetting about her. Such a non presence on Y&R.

And Chelsea's returning? Yawn. That character has run her course. Long ago.

I can recommend a great plastic surgery convent in Europe.

If Chance has to get a new face, maybe he'll take the opportunity to get additional surgery and return to Genoa City as "Phillipa 'Chantelle' Chancellor."

R114vHow did Sally screw her over? She has a great job in Italy she has chosen to stay at and is with her true love. Sally may have had ulterior motives but I don't think she ended up creating much strife for her.

Why did Abby use Devon's sperm to have a baby? What is wrong with Chance's sperm?

by Anonymousreply 118October 24, 2021 2:52 AM

R118 When the fertility doctor did the test on Chance, it was determined that his sperm count was really really low with little motility. They also said that his condition was probably caused from the high fever and medications used when he had sepsis and that there's a possibility that this may not be permanent.

It just seems so weird to use Devon's sperm. Where's the drama in that?

Little to none, R120

The only drama might be if YoHarmony returned, back on crack, wanting to see her new grandbaby.

The inside scoop is that viewers have continued to go UP since Dummer & JaBottom waved 'arriverderci' back on August 9.

August 9-13: 3,441,000

October 11-15: 3,672,000

Apparently, seeing this twosome at a special event or holiday once a year will be sufficient.

Mealor and King over estimated their worth. Notice how fast they came running back even for just a few episodes.
