So, what are you thinking about Billy Miller as Y&R's new Billy Abbott. I'm having a tough time with it. Not because of the actor. I thought he was great as wacko Richie on AMC, but this game of "musical soaps" is getting to be too much, don't you think?
I've been at this job a long time and even I'm having trouble keeping up. I turned on B&B last week and thought: Why is Victoria Newman (Heather Tom) sleeping with Frisco Jones (Jack Wagner)? What are GL's Harley (Beth Ehlers) and Gus (Ricky Paull Goldin) doing in Pine Valley? Andrea Evans may have staked her daytime claim to fame as OLTL's Tina but I'm sorry, I only see PASSIONS's Rebecca. Daytime has always been a revolving door but soap-jumping has reached fever pitch! Let's slow it down, please, or else viewers will be too dizzy, or busy keeping score, to watch — or even care.
