    I have always been a fan of Maura West so I'm super excited about her joining the Y&R cast! Can't wait to see what she brings to the show!

    what happened to the original Diane Jenkins? Why isn't she playing her part?

    So what was wrong with the rehiring of either Alex Donnelley or Susan Wolters as Diane Jenkins? Why subject the fans of the show to yet another recast, and a blonde at that? Diane was a brunette, not a blonde, and the last few recasts on the show haven't exactly been the most intelligent things that the show has done. Just because a former soap star is available, doesn't mean that they need to be snapped up by the current top show just to have "the name." Not looking forward to this at all...again!

    Looks "classy" enough to win over Jack. And if taking Diane Jenkins role over...I think this will happen. After today's show and Jack & Emily's "flop" attempt at renewing the Christmas spirit, I think we all know its not going to happen between those two. Sorry the writers will end Emily; had just hoped it was Patty's character.

    I am glad she is coming to Y&R, Carly/Maura is one of my favorite soap stars, just love her and Jack, on ATWT.

    I guess she will be fighting Phyllis over Jack, I hope Phyllis wins, I like Jack with Phyllis. But Diane has a son by Jack, and she will use that against Phyllis, I think Summer is really Jack's child, but that is another story line.

    peace out.

    Looove Maura West as Carly on ATWT! Can't wait to see what she brings to Y&R!

    Touchdown Y & R!!! I Love her. Maura should really shake up the men in Genoa City. If the pair her with Jack, she won't have to remember her leading mans name!

    I absolutely love Maura West aka Carly Tenney. Carly and Jack are the main reason I watch ATWT. I just love her. If they keep her with the fiesty and sometimes vicious personailty she has on ATWT she will be an equal match to Michelle Stafford brillant portrayal of Phyllis. As far as acting goes Maura (Carly-ATWT), Michelle (Phyllis-Y&R), Elizbeth Hubbard (Lucinda-ATWT) and Susan Flannery (Stephanie-B&B) are my favorite soap actresses.
