Quote shalaydra75: Thanks MsSuperSuds for the warning.
Shalaydra, I just read a play by play recap of today's CDN show. Believe it or not, the writers are going to finally allow Lily to speak up for herself. The girl finally has attitude and a voice to speak her mind! Will wonders ever cease? I hope this is a beginning for things on this show to improve for Christel. Five years of having no voice and having to take sh$t off everybody in your orbit except your husband could not possibly be fun for her to play Lily that way. Wonder what other bombshells regarding Lily the writers are going to drop on viewers during May sweeps? I guess they will do a lot of changes to get viewers watching and spike the ratings again, won't they? Seems as if LANERS are loving this new Lily. Let's hope she lasts past May sweeps! Will check in again later.
Thanks!!! See, this is why I have so much luv and respect core Lane fans. You guys are full information. After the last dinner scene, I thought I was completely finished with Y & R. I will make sure I watch tomorrow. I do worry that if they get ratings up, they will go after Lane again. It seems as breaking up is a job requirement for writers.
Like I stated before, I will not watch this or any Y&R episode on my TV. If I have to wait weeks for one of the video makers to put it on YT, so be it. I don't trust these showrunners enough to give them an nth of a ratings point for finally giving Lily a backbone and the chance to open her mouth to defend herself. Its been almost a year and this writing team has made Lily look so naive, silly and stupid that one would assume she didn't have one brain in her head and that she just fell off the turnip truck.
So this sudden about-face is not enough for me to give them my viewership--not yet anyway. Can you imagine that Christel has been on this show for ten long years; yet they bring in Chloe, Chelsea, & Avery and attempt to make them romantic leading ladies while isolating Lily or putting her on the sidelines and the backburner?
Nah! I am not yet buying what they are selling! They have got to do better by Christel and her alter-ego, Lily, than just one episode of feistiness.
Suds, Christel may have said that she wanted to show another side to Lily's character, I'm sure she didn't want to be this cheating person that is being shown now which some seem to think is great for her (Lily's) character.
Why couldn't Lily be a force to be reckoned with in business. TPTB had to do something with this dud that they hired so Lily was the logical choice plus with CK not being on contract, why not destroy her the way that Sharon and Lauren has been destroyed.
Sharon is being portrayed as this desperate, booty call sex object female that can't stay away from the man that stole her child at birth who told her that this same child was so badly deformed that she wouldn't want to see it, who is using her in his sick twisted games until he finds out that he has a child of his own then he will throw her out like last year's trash.
Lauren is out chasing the local bartender because she blames her husband for trying to keep their son from bullying another person. From what I read, Lauren even told Micheal that she's cheating because of him while claiming to want to fight for her marriage and family. Now, we have Lily going after this dud and for what reason? He doesn't respect her as a woman of any intelligence, only as a woman that he wants to have sex with, then what? How in the world could he possibly be a father figure to her children, children that she fought so hard to have in the first place, when he is still a child himself and a selfish one at that plus there is still something that he and she sister are not telling anyone
My hope is that the writers fix this mess, which is worst than ever, before this soap is cancelled. Remember that 2014 is not that far away anymore because we are almost into June and before you know it we will be ringing in 2014.
Supporting CK alias Lily Ashby. My prayer for you, CK is that someone will recognize your talent as an actress, give you the opportunity to showcase that talent so that others can see what your fans already know, that you have acting chops and all of this will be a distant memory. You have been acting since you were a little girl. I saw you on Matilda and Family Matters with Bryton (Devon). If given the chance, I know in my heart of hearts that you will knock their socks off.
Sleep well, my Lady. I will check in again tomorrow.
