#YR’s Nightmare in Daytime

Published August 4, 2017 by tdaddetta16

Just when viewers thought it was safe, Y&R is in turmoil! In a move that has Y&R viewers fuming, as of July 28th Kay Alden was fired from daytime’s number one soap! As always, Highlight Hollywood had the scoop before anyone else got wind of it. 

According to the article, which can be found here; the plot only thickened, and grew more disgusting and murky when viewers learned that Sally Sussman wanted to hire her son, who is college age; to replace the top scribe who worked for Y&R’s late co-creator, Bill Bell, for three decades. Alden, who started out, like all other writers, as a script writer for Y&R, and rose through the ranks through hard work and diligence, combined with a passion for storytelling, and the genre itself. She was devoted to the show and bringing Bill Bell’s vision to life, and she did so,  seemingly effortlessly; and much to viewers’ delight, for three decades.

Such a betrayal  coming from Sony shocks nobody. It is Sally’s betrayal of her longtime coworker and colleague, however, that has viewers dumbfounded and furious; especially since Alden is easily one of daytime’s best, and most talented writers. Alden is easily among the top scribes in all of daytime; one of the very best, and most respected in the genre!

Viewers got played like violins, not only by Sony, but by Sussman herself, who we now know, never had any intention whatsoever of restoring Bell’s legacy. Kay was simply brought on to appease us, but was ignored completely; by both Sally, and Sony. The phrase no good deed goes unpunished has never been more apt, nor more tragic and revolting.

Sussman didn’t count on karma catching up with her quite so soon, but it sure did; and in spades!

Per Highlight Hollywood’s July 31st article, Sussman, who snubbed and ignored Alden, despite Alden’s thirty year career in Bell soaps, and the wealth of experience that she’s earned because of it; found herself out in the cold just two days after having betrayed Alden. Daytime’s number one soap, will now be written and executive produced by current executive producer, Mal Young. Young, despite his many credits and successes with British soaps, is a novice when it comes writing to North American soaps. 

Contrary to what some would have viewers believe, neither Sussman, nor Alden retired, and anyone who believes it needs his or her head read! If you believe that, I’ve got all kinds of bridges to sell you; and at rock bottom prices!

#YR fans LISTEN UP! With Sally no longer a factor at Y&R; Sony&CBS MUST get the message that Angelica McDaniel, Mal Young, and Steve Kent MUST GO&they MUST #BringBackKayAlden! Angelica, Steve, Mal, and Sally are ALL responsible for the current state of Y&R!

Steve Kent continues taking advantage of Tony Vinciquierra, who was only fairly recently promoted to the top spot of Chiarman and CEO at Sony; knowing nothing of what’s gone on in Sony’s daytime division, as Angelica McDaniel has done for years at CBS. Therefore ALL above people, except for Tony are a threat to Y&R & must go!

Y&R Celebrates 44 Years on the Air & #SaveYR is a Resounding Success

Published March 23, 2017 by tdaddetta16

As Y&R prepares to celebrate 44 years on television; a monumental achievement for any show, and particularly for a soap.

Of course, none of this would be happening without the show’s co-creators, the late William J. Bell and his wife Lee Phillip Bell. Nor would it be happening without the hard work of the shows incredibly talented cast and crew.

The past decade, and past 3 years in particular were trying times, to say the least, with Jill Farren Phelps and Chuck Pratt, two of the worst, most notorious hacks in daytime, at the helm of daytime’s #1 soap. There was no shortage of obstacles and roadblocks thrown our way; no smooth ride to victory. But, loyal, determined and passionate viewers persevered against overwhelming odds and went on to save the show; forcing the removal of both Phelps and Pratt. 

This is a feat few have even attempted and even fewer have achieved. It took 11 years for General Hospital #GH viewers to oust Phelps alone.

This would not have been possible without the help from them, All My Children viewers, One Life To Live Viewers, and Guiding Light viewers as well as those who offered insight on the much beloved soap, Santa Barbara. All of these audiences, and their experiences with Phelps and Pratt, respectively, provided invaluable information and insight that made it possible for us to save this iconic soap that so many love. So, thank you, I only wish we had been able to save and stop the damage done to your soaps.

This would never have  been possible without this group of ladies, who, in one way or another, are a big part of the reason I’m still sane. Well, sort of. 😉 And, who have taught me so much.

Last but certainly not least, we would not be here, celebrating this huge milestone without Tommy Lightfoot Garret and his team at Highlight Hollywood whose determination and tireless efforts were crucial to the #SaveYR campaign’s success. 

Thank you to each and every one of you for supporting the campaign and this amazing show for the last 44 years; and may there be many years to come!

Soaps’ Black Widow Caught in Own Web: Jill Farren Phelps OUT at The Young and the Restless

Jill Farren Phelps, Y&R’s Former Co-Executive Producer 

 

Y&R fans are ecstatic after getting the news they’ve waited three long, hard years for; Jill Farren Phelps, has finally fired from daytime’s number one soap. It comes not a moment too soon as this is the woman with perhaps the most notorious reputation in daytime, who is responsible for the destruction and cancellation of many soaps including Guiding Light and, most recently, All my Children. General hospital viewers will also remember her as the woman who almost killed their beloved soap after One Life to live and All My Children was unceremoniously dead in 2011.

Highlight Hollywood broke the news late Tuesday night, June 7th 2016. You can read all the details here.

Note: Rumours are flying like the wind, though they are as yet ONLY RUMOURS; that Chuck Pratt, another of daytime’s most notorious soap killers is also out as the show’s head writer and co-executive producer, or well on his way. Stay tuned for more news as it develops.
