Jill hated Kay - blamed her for Phillip (Sr)'s death b/c Kay was driving the car that crashed

Thanks R4.

Besides the car crash that killed PC2, Jill also hated Kay because she went to court and got Phillip's Dominican Republic divorce from her thrown out, which meant Phillip's subsequent deathbed marriage to Jill became null and void as well as his directive that Jill's then unborn child be his rightful heir. Kay's actions made Jill's baby illegitimate, and the boy could not be called Phillip Chancellor III, and instead had to go be raised as plain ol' Phillip Foster.

R19 Nope. .. Phillip wouldn't touch the Old Battleaxe, because she stunk like booze and cigarettes, so she resorted to riding the stableboys. .. Soap actor, Rod Arrants, was one of them, and he was on Y&R in 1974, playing "Jeff the Stableboy." That was the year before Kay drove Phillip over the cliff. .. Years later Arrants would be cast as Ashley's doctor-husband, Steven Lassiter.

Kay was a total SLUT.

Recall, we also heard that when her first husband, Gary Reynolds, went to work abroad in Germany for a year and took 7-year old Brock with him, Kay and her drinking buddy, Charlotte, went out partying and carousing almost every night. .. I still remember the way Charlotte (the wonderful Elizabeth Harrower) read that line, "The men, ohhhh the MEN!" .. She made it sound like the two party girls enjoyed sampling random cocks left and right. .. That's during the time when Kay eventually began fucking one guy in particular, Tucker's father, Arthur Hendricks, who I believe was in college and working as a waiter at the GCAC so he could go to law school.

R31 The reason they look good(?) if that's the way one sees it, is because most, if not all of them, have had already had work done.

We know Stafford's been having surgeries-procedures for well over 15 years now. That was put out there in one of Vicky Rowell's "bedtime stories" involving her and then-EP, Ed Scott, who apparently had a talk with her and "suggested" she go in and have "the same eye job that Michelle had just had done." The implication was she was looking old and needed to have something done about it. Rowell turned it around on Big Ed and pointedly asked him if he'd also told his wife to go in and have it done. ..lol.

Bregman too. I remember years ago, she had something go wrong with one of her procedures and had to keep the right side of her forehead-temple area covered with her hair. This was around the time she had a massive boob job. She can't even move most of her face now. .. And people have been talking about Case's face for over a year now. Whatever she had done seems to have 'settled in' somewhat, presently. .. Years ago Susan Walters talked about her bad experience with Botox treatments and that she was giving it up, but that doesn't mean she hasn't had some other cosmetic work done since. .. Some feel Eileen had nose and breast jobs in the past and that she had something done to her face about a year ago. Better work on her part, though.

Former Y&R EP, Jill Farren Phelps, predicts how soaps will react to the strike.

Josh Griffith probably has a list of fellow FiCore scribes he'll call up to do the actual scripts. After all, he's already doing the breakdowns.

One interesting thing Phelps says is:

[quote] One unlikely consequence of the strike was that the show’s producers tended to loosen the purse strings and the usual controls just to get episodes finished. “During a strike, the financial constraints are all but released because the writers are no longer being paid so sets can be created and most of the money rules that strangle daytime are gone,” Phelps said.

R41 Sony (Steve Kent) took the opportunity to fire LML during the strike. As showrunner, she'd was been EP-HW, so I guess not doing one function meant she wasn't doing the other. Kent installed Josh Griffith as EP and Maria Arena Bell as HW. After the strike, MAB was retained as HW and Paul Rauch became EP. Eventually, MAB became EP-HW with Hogan Sheffer brought in as co-HW. .. Interestingly, Sheffer had also been let go as the HW at Days during the strike. Thing is, both he and Meg Kelly had gone FiCore to keep working, yet were told to stay home, with Days taking the opportunity to release them and replace then with Dena Higley, who subsequently went on to become the the official HW at Days after the strike.

Here, I thought they already did the change to "Winters" when Neil & Dru adopted Devon over 15 years ago?! .. I know there have been times when his name was listed as "Devon Winters" in the closing credits. (See link.)

But her relationship with Neil was more or less platonic, since she had found herself pregnant with Cole's baby, and Neil stepped up to help her make everyone think that he was the baby's father. .. But during this time, they never had sex, only kissed. (The racists out in TV Land had a conniption.) .. By the time Vicki delivered her baby, Cole had found out anyway, and then the baby soon died.

(That was the wedding that got aborted because Phyllis showed up - Gina T's big entrance at the church.)

But even though Doris wouldn't be coming to the wedding, viewers took this to mean that things had thawed between mother and daughter, since the last time we'd seen Doris (ca. 2012), she was pretty pissed off with Sharon. .. Sharon had married Victor (GAG) with the divorce pending, and Doris was on her daughter's case about the bad choices she'd made in her life. ..

R114 No. .. Episodes and scripts airing now were still written pre-strike. It will probably be another month (or more) before any strike material airs. .. Recall, during the last strike, it was right at the outset in November 2007 that we heard fairly reliable rumors (from that Bell-mouthpiece) that Latham wasn't writing and was going to be canned. .. But the Griffith-Bell material didn't start airing until late December. .. I think Latham's firing was then confirmed sometime in February 2008.

Given their history, L'Bug not believing that Syphilis faked her death and is still alive is sooooo stupid. .. Cricket should be directing Chance to use every resource available to track the bitch down, so she can prosecute her for obstruction of justice and 25 other crimes.

And Aunt Jack and JaBottom playing "CSI: Genoa City" is laughable. Note to producers: Unless you're going to go there, don't show JaBottom putting on a pair of vinyl gloves.

Dear gawd in heaven! ... They're not going to have DuhVon buy and move into the Chancellor Estate are they?

Nice to see that it looks like they've decided to keep the main dining room of the GCAC up. But enough of Messa and the baby. How to waste 10 minutes of an episode with boring, repetitive filler.

And Sharon receiving a bottle of expensive champagne with an ominous, unseen lurker watching her? .. My first thought was Cameron Kirsten is out of prison and back. .. Recall, Sharon hit him over the head with a bottle of champagne, believing she killed him. .. This led to some crazy, camp material such as Larry helping Sharon stash the "corpse" in the Genoa City sewer, and later, she and Nikki going down into it to try to find it. It's been something like 20 years. Cameron was played by Susan Walters' real-life husband, Linden Ashby.

Nope. Abby and Dom moved into DuhVon's penthouse back in early April.

Chance -- the only true Chancellor heir along with gay Phillip -- is apparently flying solo at the Chancellor Estate, which we haven't seen since they showed that new room in the house months ago. That scene probably signaled that they'd shuttered the main Chancellor set.

One wonders if they changed the bed sheets between the Mariah-Tessa and Boretoria-Nate sex scenes? It was way too obvious that both couples were in the same room and bed at GCAC.. .. The only good thing about running these two scenes concurrently is that viewers can use the same barf bag.

Besides Summer, Detective Chance should also get Daniel in a position to interrogate him one-on-one about Phyllis. .. I'd suggest getting him alone at the steam room at the Athlletic Club.. Now, there's a set they need to bring back.

Besides a daughter, I would have included Keemo's son, so we could get some sibling conflict to show another side of the character. .. And unlike Allie's always smiling, studious, good girl Asian stereotype, the brother would be this total waster, bad boy Instaho. He'd be spending his inheritance on expensive underwear and jaunts to Ibiza, Tel Aviv and Dubai.

R209, That should be explained at the beginning of Monday’s show.

I figured he must have followed Bummer.

How stupid is Dummer to just open the door to some random knocker with her supposedly dead mother in plain sight? Also, are we really supposed to be rooting for Jack and Diane? All of their scenes are so unctuous and cringe.

R212 JaBottom didn't knock on the door. .. Dummer got upset and decided to leave. .. She grabbed her purse and jacket and headed for the door, opening it, and surprise! surprise!, there was JaBottom on the other side.

It's weird, when I discovered my cat was sick, I immediately got on the floor and petted him and held him.

At Sharon's house, they discovered the sick cat on the doorstep and immediately slammed the door shut, without ever bothering to check to see if the cat was still alive or not.

I knew what was up with Borgnine when they didn’t let us see him the day Faith came home. The Cameron Kirsten story is even more boring than Natoria.

R215, The disclaimer at the end of today’s show made me laugh out loud.

No animals were harmed during the making of this television program.

“The Cameron Kirsten story is even more boring than Natoria.“

Any storyline that allows me to view Sean Dominic half naked is okay with me.

Yeah, but seening him in bed with Snoretoria kills any fantasy I might have

R218,, It could be worse . . . if Victoria were still being played by Heather Tom.

Tomorrow, when Jabottom goes to tell Chance where Phyllis is, I hope Chance will take him in his arms and comforts him the way Jabottom needs.

Heather Tom has her own gorgeous black bf on Bold and Beautiful

Wouldn't the GC Police/Chricket have Daniel and Dummer under constant surveillance, knowing it's likely Phyllis would contact them? How idiotic she's in the Athletic Club, and no one can figure it out.

R222, Isn’t Housekeeping cleaning the room?

When the maid comes in, Phyllis probably puts on her Baseball Cap of Invisibility.

Cameron was wearing one as well on Monday's episode.

They didn't know where Cameron was either, yet we actually saw him check-in to the GCAC with the concierge calling him by his actual name.

Do we think that Cricket or Chance are smart enough to put surveillance on Dummer and Daniel?

Well, if Phyllis had stayed at the Phoenix Hotel, more people might recognize her since she used to own the place. But those Phoenix Hotel sets seem to have been abandoned for the revised Athletic Club set.

Meanwhile, Phyllis should have stayed at another no tell motel, but then they would have had to build another set.

Phyllis should be living in a van down by the river.

Seriously, a trailer park would do. .. And this is when Phyllis meets some interesting characters - like the hot, typically shirtless ex-con who manages the trailer park; then there's the sweet twink who had to runaway from home, because he was being beaten by his homophobic stepfather. He's been taken in by a kindly elder gay who watches daytime soap operas. Also, there this totally wacky black woman who showed up at the trailer park 15 years ago with amnesia. She thinks she own the place and takes an immediate dislike to Phyllis. btw - She looks a lot like Drucilla, and Phyllis has some fun with this before telling her who she is.

Except Y&R's current idea of "hot" is someone on the far side of 60 (Linden Ashby, 63; Robert Newman, 64; James Hyde, 60). Their first impulse would be to see if Drake Hogestyn is working. The most interesting person they could consider is Hart Bochner, to whose presence I might not object.
