Keemo has not been mentioned in almost a decade... but, who knows we might hear about him with these new writers..

I thought the conversation was appropriate for that particular time.

I don't think it matters if PB liked the story line or not.. they have no say so in what their story line is.. just watch the 10,000th epi and EB verifies it.


Good points Purrr. It was appropriate for that particular conversation.

PB didn't like the story because Jack was supposed to be such a playboy that it was totally OOC for him to meet and fall totally in love with Luan at that time in his life.There was nothing more to it than that. I've seen him say this several times in interviews.



I would believe this IF not for remarks made by a former Y&R actress. She detested PB and made some very ugly remarks about him. The actress worked at Y&R for years so she knows a lot more than we do.

^^^^^Remarks made by someone who detests another person are not that reliable IMO.

This "person" has also been saying she is talks with CBS about returning. Not true. They have said she will never be back.

Quote meemawn: How can Jack tell Summer the story about how he enlisted to fight in Vietnam but fail to mention KEEMO the son he fathered over there?

Keemo is Summer's older brother!!!

The whole point of Jack's Vietnam story was to introduce Luan and Keemo.

Jack can talk openly about Vietnam but not Keemo???

Summer might change her mind about Jack being such a great father if she knew the truth about Keemo!



Yikes, that's messed up! How can he talk about Vietnam without mentioning Keemo? Very weird.

What are you talking about and how does this relate to Keemo? I always wondered why he was written off. Jack acts like his firstborn doesn't exist. So strange.

OMG. yesss Jack was such a play boy, especially when Terry Lester played the role for 10 years.. and not a word about Viet Nam.. that came along way after PB took over.. but PB matured Jack.. PB may not have liked the story line and has expressed it.. but I still say.. .the actors do not control the story line.. that also has been said many times on talk shows by the actors.

I don't know why, but for some reason, the writers have dropped Keemo from the canvas.. Neither do they refer back to when Jack and Jill had this torrid affair while Jill was married to John Abbott.. that history seems to have disappeared.
