Quote JRTA: Kay Alden is not a producer, she is a writer. So she wouldn't be a replacement for JFP. However, she would be a replacement for JG, who just as much needs to go.
That said, even if they were to bring back in the regime from 2006, I think the damage has been done and there is no repairing Y&R to past glory days.
Quote jilltidwell: I tried warning everybody. I said that hiring JFP was the wrong thing to do. But, everybody told me to give her a chance even though I knew she was going to fail. If anybody watches GH you know what she has done to other shows.
Quote Homesick Cajun: There is an article on line with Jill Farren Phelps that was conducted by TV Guide and posted a little over a year ago. I read it then and again this morning. This is why I thought she and Josh Griffin were a package deal. They worked together on Hollywood Heights and (I think) Another World. Josh Griffin was a writer for Y&R during the writers strike several years ago. After that he was let go by Y&R. He only came back with JFP last year. In the article she talks about how glad she was to be able to have him because he knew the "history of the Y&R characters". Well, I'm sorry but he doesn't seem to know much if anything at all about the "history" of any of the characters IMO. It doesn't appear to me that any of the current regime has done their homework at all...So, IMO JFP and JG need to be replaced and ASAP...

I knew her history from Gl & gh!
JFP should be banned as Ep on all soaps!
Bottom line is she got hired because of her friends not because she's the best candidate ! That would be Ed Scott as Ep & Kay Alden as head writer!
