On YOUNG AND RESTLESS, I really liked how Jill confided in Michael about her angst over Katherine's "look-alike" Marge returning (it really is an alive Kay, but Jill doesn't believe it yet). Of course, Michael would understand what she's going through — after all, his wife Lauren's nemesis, Sheila, made herself over to look exactly like Michael's best friend, Phyllis.
On another note, what's the deal with Restless Style featuring local people on its cover? First Victoria was a model and now Phyllis asked her son Daniel to pose for a cover. Granted, both Vicky and Daniel are extremely attractive, but neither is a model (unless you count the nude spread Victoria did as a teen). Yes, getting celebrities is probably difficult for a new magazine, but surely there's a model agency in a cosmopolitan place like Genoa City? There must be hundreds of budding models who'd be willing to do a cover shot. Then again, using good-looking friends and family members could be a good way to save money, especially during these hard times, so maybe Phyllis is on to something.
