    To Estrelita : Thank you for the very interesting post. I really enjoyed reading what you posted. The Y&R should have a legal department, why can't they put them in fact checking what their passing on to the viewers? I think a lot of the problems stem from the writers being younger than a lot of their viewers and let's face it, we grew up with morals and values that aren't as prevalent with today's generation. It seems like the s/l's that aren't popular are the ones that they drag on and on and on. I guess this gives them time to CYA, (cover their azz), until they can think of something else to start. I'm just venting again. Semper Fi

    Who's Andrew Abbott (KMC's spoilers)?

    Posted by kmc320 at Sunday, September 15 2013 12:09 PM

    @notodo -Who's Andrew Abbott ?

    ~~~A new character that's a cousin to Jack and Billy

    Just think with all that scheming by Dummy and all the hate from Faith, neither had the power of Dylan to prevent a wedding

    I'm so sick of Victor thinking he's Omnipotent. He needs to be knock a few pegs down.
    He doesn't love his children, he loves pitting his children against the other siblings

    And even his namesake says Vic Sr. expects all of his children to trust him come h311 or high waters yet the moment they need his trust he doesn't give it

    Adam asks Victor what is his definition of family from his view (fatherly), a man who played very little significance in his (Spawn's) life

    This I have to see: Adam says he already loves Connor more than Victor has ever shown him causing Vic to get teary ryes.

    @USMC Vet - After watching the shows and seeing what's in store on Nick and Avery's wedding I'm just plain disgusted about the whole s/l. I pictured Nick and Avery as the new generation of Newmans with orientation on the family life and not the business of NE. I guess I just can't understand why a show like this can't have any happiness in a s/l.

    ~~~This wedding shouldn't have taken place. Just like Nick says, Avery still loves Dullen. Neither are hosest with their feelings about the other. A lot of things are going to be said btwn the two and I think you're agree after seeing it, that it was best to part ways

    KMC

    Appreciate the 411 as always lady!

    Hmmmmm. Cousin ...well it's about time we see other relatives besides siblings on the soaps ...........sounds like it may be interesting

    Adam, please win over Victor Oldman. I can't stand his arrogant arse. Next time someone aims a gun at that old fart, just step aside. Like Nick and Victoria did the last time.

    Oh Lord, Dylan has taken off with the baby. Might have to hold off on that specialist.

    Has anyone considered Carmine maybe Nikki's son. Wouldn't that be a hot mess.

    I love this site

    When is sharon going to get got? Avery is a fool, pretending all this time, she's a lier & Nick deserves better, please not Sharon, she needs to get caught, Faith is too grown she needs a real good spanking, Sharon is telling her what to do,act & say, hope Faith says something to that affect, now chelsea is caught for her lies, now it's Sharon's time to be exposed,how much longer do we have to wait for this to happen?

    Posted by loiuse at Sunday, September 15 2013 02:44 PM

    CBS11cntrl I am sick of Sharon getting away with everything, time for her to get exposed, all hell is gonna break lose Dylan stole the baby, sharon thinks she will get Nick (NOT) Noah knows she hasn't taken her meds in 2 months, watch how she'll lie her way out of this, Noah believes anything this she devil says. I don't care what people say about Victor but Adam always going behind Victor's back to take his company, so I hope he & Jack are ruin, Jack always messing with Victor, Jack started this but Victor will end it.

    Posted by loiuse at Sunday, September 15 2013 02:59 PM

    Adam came into the business to take Victor down he always had an agenda, I hope Victor gets Adam back, it's his company & Adam always scheming to hurt Victor, Adam has a nasty additude, he needs to be put in his place & leave Victor alone,he wants to put Victor out of his own company now how disgraceful can you get, if any one is arrogant it's ADAM, always going behind someone's back to do his dirty work, if Jack is not careful Adam will walk over him too.

    Re: "Posted by bikette at Sunday, September 15 2013 08:44 AM

    Estrelita re the updates... He says that's impossible. "I'm leaving town." Chelsea begs to make it work, but Dylan wants a divorce

    So do those same laws still hold water if the husband wants to abandoned the wife and the child? Couldn't Dylan even sue Chelsea for entrapment or something like that for lying to him about Connor? And wouldn't Adam have a better case then? I doubt that is what is going to happen though, but just saying. I think Adam will soften until he finds out that Dylan has taken off with his child. Then he will realize that unless he sues that could happen again and he would have no say in what happens to his child(good or bad)."

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    Well - Dylan has made plans to leave town many times before and still has NOT done it - so I doubt very much that he will carry through this time either. That he claimed he wanted a divorce could also have been something said in the heat of the moment - and will turn out to NOT be anything which Dylan plans to carry through.

    As far as the show goes - it depends how long it will be before Dylan learns that he is adopted as to whether or not he will continue to feel that he was "trapped" by Chelsea. After all - Chelsea kept trying to discourage his attempts to marry Chelsea and take responsibility for the child. In fact, a number of times, Chelsea encouraged Dylan to be honest with himself about his feelings for Avery.

    Essentially, what Dylan is NOW telling Chelsea is that he can NOT love Connor UNLESS Connor is Dylan's biological child. However, as soon as Dylan learns that DYLAN is adopted, he will need to deal with the following facts:

    1. Dylan's beloved parents apparently ALSO withheld the truth from Dylan and NEVER told him that he had been adopted.

    2. Terrance McAvoy, even though he was NOT Dylan's biological father, still loved Dylan as his own son and had a close, warm, father-son relationship with Dylan. If Terrance McAvoy the first could exercise warm, paternal love for a child who was NOT his biological son - surely Dylan should be ready, willing and eager to follow in his ADOPTED father's footsteps by also establishing a close, warm and loving relationship with the son of Dylan's wife - Chelsea.

    Regarding Dylan taking off with Connor - By Tuesday, Chelsea obviously has an idea about where to look for Dylan and Connor - so, perhaps, it will be Chelsea who finds Dylan and convinces him to return home with her.

    At any rate, after ten years at war, this country now has a great many returning military veterans - many of whom suffer from PTSD. A great many courts are reluctant to be pushed into the position of appearing to be equating suffering from PTSD to being a criminal. In the REAL world - Adam would have to tread VERY softly if he hoped to make a case that the PTSD of the baby's LEGAL father would be enough of a problem to convince the court to set aside the LEGAL rights of Connor's LEGAL parents.

    It remains to be seen whether or not Dylan will continue to be interested in giving up his LEGAL right to continue to be Connor's LEGAL father. It would become a good, strong story if Dylan DID change his mind and DID decide to exercise his right to continue to be Connor's LEGAL father. Whether or not JFP and her current crew of soap assassins are interested in floating a strong, credible story about PTSD and other issues raised by this story line - remains to be seen.

    @Estrelita.......I enjoy reading your posts. Always so full of information and so well written.

    I don't mean to get too personal and you may not want to answer, but what is your background or line of work? Are you in the legal field? Please forgive me for asking but your posts really interest me."

    XXXXXXXXXXXX

    Back in my salad days, I worked as the private secretary for one of Denver's most highly regarded trial attorneys. He actually pioneered a lot of the legal aspects of what is now Colorado's domestic violence legislation. In court, he would have a field day with Adam - and make mincemeat of most of his arguments.

    Primarily - Adam's sudden revelation that he actually "loved" Chelsea - so Adam "demonstrates" that law by constantly yelling at her and then rushing to a bunch of lawyers, determined to attempt to use to law to FORCE Chelsea to do what Adams wants Chelsea to do. This is a rather classic personality trait of an abusive personality.

    Of course, if he had been Nikki's attorney, Nikki probably would NOT have returned to Victor and allowed Victor to keep on walking all over her during the past 10 or 15 times.

    And - while we are on the subject - if there is ANYONE visiting the comments section who believes that they - or someone close to them - COULD be involved in an abusive relationship - I recommend that you contact the Domestic Violence Hotline - the Internet Link is as follows:

    NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOT LINE
    www.thehotline.org/

    You can also call the National Domestic Violence Hot Line aT
    1-800-799-SAFE or 1-800-799-7233

    1-800-787-3224

    What Is Domestic Violence?
    www.thehotline.org/get-educated/what-is-domestic-violence/

    One of the most consistent complaints about Jill Farren Phelps "vision" for soaps is that JFP apparently despises women - and a great many female characters on shows which JFP has helmed have met with gruesome ends within the context of the soap. When JFP first took over at Y&R - the Wikipedia write-up on JFP's career included a list of some of the more gruesome stories involving female characters which were carried out during JFP's tenure on several different shows. Those lists have now been "scrubbed" from the current write-up on JFP's career. In spite of the fact that Wikipedia has apparently scrubbed out all lists of JFP's history of making a gruesome end of female characters in shows which she helms - you can STILL go to You Tube and find video clips of the gruesome end of Frankie Frame, from back in the days when JFP was the mastermind of soap-killing stories on Another World - which was CANCELLED in 1999. The You Tube film clips dealing with the gruesome death of Frankie Frame are in several parts. Parts 3 and 4 are probably the most graphic. So, in spite of the fact that Wikipedia no longer remembers that all of this gratuitous violence is probably a major reason why Another World was cancelled - and the four remaining soaps are merely holding on by the skin of their teeth - there are still people who remember that the reason why soaps are in decline is because soap writers became so enamored with their own ideas that they refused to pay attention to anything which the audience was telling them.

    FRANKIE FRAME DIES - Part 4 - You Tube

    My personal opinion is tht female viewers would be wise to stay far, far away from the type of stuff which JFP tries to peddle as "romance."

    My personal observation is that one of the reasons why soaps are dying is because soap writers have been out of touch with viewers for a least a couple of decades. I believe that the viewers who have a moral compass are still out there - and that they actually represent a majority of viewers - but soap writers are so enamored of their own ideas that they deliberately choose to ignore - or even suppress - what viewers are actually telling them.

    So far - NONE of the soaps which been axed have been able to finish with the type of finale which was good enough to bring back lapsed viewers. At this point, it looks to me like Young and Restless is headed down the SAME road!
