Postby mateale121068 » Thu Aug 05, 2010 1:13 pm

The apparent long-standing rumor that Maura West would be joining Y&R is now officially over. Maura West will indeed be joining the cast of Y&R as Diane Jenkins. She reports to work on September 1 and will first air on October 8!

Congrats to Maura and a definite congrats to Y&R for snagging this 2-time Emmy winner!

This is awesome news, being a Y&R fan also! Hopefully Maura will be the first of many to find homes on other soaps.

Y&R also snagged Marcy Rylan and Jeff Branson (yum yum!) from GL. They have excellent taste :)

This will definitely "cushion the blow" of having to say farewell to ATWT. I cannot wait to see Maura West on Y&R. I stopped tuning into Y&R about a month ago because I thought many of the storylines were getting more and more stupid. But I will definitely start tuning in now. I think Diane will be a great character for Maura to play. We may get to see CarJack II.

Congratulations to Maura and Y&R for making a great decision.

This is great news. Congrats to Y&R and to Maura. Diane Jenkins is a multi-dimensional character and will fit Maura like a glove. Diane shares a son with Jack Abbott and they will make a stunning couple. Jack's present love interest (EMily) just left the show yesterday, so it seems that they will reunite Jack and Diane. Expect some powerful scenes.

That will certainly set Phyllis off! Can't wait to see these two ladies interact! Wonder if they will have the SORAS with Summer and Diane's son (forget his name) to young teenagers and have them hook up since these two ladies don't get along. That could be interesting!

Oh no, MP and MW will be the only CarJack to me. I am too stubborn to think that she will have as much chemistry with any other man but MP. %( However I will follow her to this show. They are lucky to have her! I am happy that I still get to see her onscreen cause she is an amazing actress.

I love it finally MW will hopefully have a better SL than carjack which was a long dragged out bore. The writer's at Y&R are great they have some imagination which the writer's on this show lacked.

YIPPEE!!!! YAHOO!!!!YES, YES, YES!!!!

I was streaming and hollering when she won her 2nd Emmy and if I wasn't at work I'd be doing the same thing. Y & R is so smart to sign her. I can't wait. The VCR is going to hum again!!!!!! She will ROCK the show. Diane and Phyllis will have a battle royal over Jack.

Maura is a wonderful actress and I will watch her on Y & R. I have just one problem with this--Diane Jenkins is much older than Maura. Maura was a little girl when Diane's character was introduced on Y & R over 25 years ago. And the Y & R hair people have not been doing a good job lately. I just want her to shine. I agree, B & B would have been the better fit.
