Y&R: January 13 – January 17, 2014

I watched THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS this week mostly with the exception of Thursday because I was napping.  Nevertheless, I watched through a lot of the writing, the Michael Muhney/Hunter King sexual harassment scandal, and the Jill Farren Phelps regime. I found interesting how Neil bonded with Lauren over Jabot, Fen, and his engagement to Leslie, who confided in Avery about her fears of marriage and children. Leslie urged Neil to not to hurry their engagement to his proposed June wedding.  My thang is: LESLIE DOES NOT WANT TO MARRY NEIL BECAUSE OF ABANDONMENT ISSUES WITH GUS NOT BEING A FATHER TO HER AND TYLER AND HER MOTHER’S DEATH.  SHE BUILT A WALL UP AROUND HERSELF AS A TOUGH-AS-NAILS ATTORNEY AS AN ESCAPE FROM HER PAIN.

I had been reading on many of the fan pages on Facebook about the fear of Jack hooking up with Hilary.  I do not want them together myself. I rather see her with Devon now that he is no longer romantically involved with Roxanne.  I cannot see Peter Bergman in love scenes with Mishael Morgan because it gives off that President Fitz and Olivia Pope vibe from SCANDAL yet THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS does not have it for Jack and Hilary.  My thang is: I CANNOT SEE JACK HOOKING UP WITH HILARY.

Lily wanted certain renovations to give to the Genoa City Athletic Club now that Devon is the current owner. She did not get 100 percent approval from Devon and Cane.  She suddenly got giddy when Victoria appeared to give them the okay to host the tribute gala dedicated to the late Delia although Nikki had already given them the okay to host it there at the Genoa City Athletic Club.  Lily wanted really to tear one of the walls down.  My thang is: LILY SEEMS LIKE SHE IS ONE OF THE WHITE GIRLS WHO IS SO MIDDLE AMERICA AND SHE HAS NO DRUCILLA BARBER WINTERS IN HER AT ALL.  SHE IS WRITTEN BY THE WRITERS AS COLORLESS AND DEVOID OF HER AFRICAN-AMERICAN HERITAGE AND CULTURE.  CHRISTEL KHALIL DOES NOT BRING THE SISTERGIRL OUT OF LILY AT ALL. I RESPECT HER AS AN ACTRESS BUT SHE HAS NO SENSE OF CONNECTION TO AFRICAN-AMERICANS DESPITE HER BEING HALF-AFRICAN-AMERICAN.

Summer’s new so-called model friend Esmeralda has been providing Summer drugs so she can handle life as a Jabot model.  Summer fell and collapsed due to heart failure.  My thang is: ESMERALDA IS A NAME RESERVED FOR WITCHES (LIKE THE SHY WITCH ON THE CLASSIC SITCOM BEWITCHED) AND BITCHES (LIKE FANCY’S FRIEND ESME (ESMERALDA) ON PASSIONS).  SHE IS GOING TO BE BLAMED FOR SUMMER’S HOSPITALIZATION EITHER BY JACK OR NICK.

This is from the week of January 13 – January 17, 2014 on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.

Kristoff vs. Michael Muhney: REMIX

I just saw this post on Facebook about Kristoff St. John making public comments about former co-star Michael Muhney, who got terminated from his role as popular villain Adam Newman on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS for allegedly sexual harassing co-star Hunter King (Summer Newman Abbott).

http://soapoperadigest.com/content/yrs-kristoff-st-john-we-want-end

The entire post Kristoff placed onto his Facebook page is as follows: https://www.facebook.com/kristoffstjohn/posts/10203270751389945

My position on this is:

(1) I love Kristoff St. John but he needs not to interfere in this matter which should be taken care of by Sony, CBS, Lee Phillip Bell, the Bell Family, Jill Farren Phelps, Angelica McDaniel, Michael Muhney, his LAWYER/LAWYERS, his agent, Hunter King, her LAWYER/LAWYERS and her agent.  This is NOT his battle.

(2) Kristoff needs to address the IMPORTANT issues and isms afflicting the state of the soap opera industry and the place African American actors and actresses have in it.

(3) Kristoff needs to hope he will keep his 23-year stint as Neil Winters intact in 2014.  From this day, he does not get enough airtime as it is.  Like how he told Victoria Rowell on an episode of Jamie Foxx’s Sirius Radio show “The Foxxhole”, he had to eat.  He needs to focus on continuing to have to eat and not interfere in affairs pertaining to other co-stars on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.

(4) Kristoff needs to listen to Yolanda Adams’ song “The Battle Is Not Yours, It’s The Lord’s”

Tyler and Abby’s Stalker Story

Today’s THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS featured Tyler and Abby talking about a new home.  He refused to live in the Newman residence with Abby and her family because he wanted to be the one to support the both of them as a man.  They located their mutual dream home online and contacted the realtor.  Unfortunately, Tyler received the call from the realtor, who told him how “his wife” changed her mind about the dream house.  We know it was not Abby, but his unseen ex-girlfriend Mariah, who is stalking them.

It took me a long time to finally accept and embrace interracial relationships in real-life and on daytime television.  I had my problems, issues, and isms with it in the past but an old acquaintance of mine once advised when I complained about it to LIVE MY LIFE.  I did not get it back when he advised me but I get it now. Life is too short and too long to be moaning, groaning, venting, and bitching about who people choose to love, romance, sex, marry, and build with.  I never expected Tyler to get with Abby because I banked on him getting with Lily last year but it did not happen as anticipated. Tyler has had casual one-night stands with a White woman during his infatuation with Lily so I knew that he was not only into Black women. I am getting used to seeing Redaric Williams and Melissa Ordway as an on-screen prominent couple who happens to be interracial. I have come to accept fully the fact that there are many interracial relationships, romances, unions, marriages, and families in America and the rest of the world. There is a saying which goes like this: WHEN IT COMES TO MATTERS OF THE HEART, NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!

While I have reconciled with my feelings about interracial relationships, there are two things I am not feeling about their story line.  One: THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS already did two stalker story lines just last year with Neil, Lily, and Devon being stalked by a mysterious person who ended up being Hillary and with Lauren being stalked by Carmine.  The writers need to get together with their stalker obsession. Two: I am so tired of the Black or Biracial-looking woman stalking their Black ex-boyfriends and their non-Black girlfriends and wives.  The same thing happened on ALL MY CHILDREN in 1995 when Taylor Roxbury-Cannon became the crazy and unhinged Black woman who framed her Black ex-lover Noah Keefer for an accidental murder of Louie Greco and made as if Noah intentionally killed him.  Taylor even followed Noah and his true love, Tex-Mex Hispanic/Latina Julia Santos, to Jamaica when they were on the run from Taylor’s lie.  She tried to drown Julia before being apprehended by Jackson Montgomery and the Jamaican authorities who extradited her back to Pine Valley.  In regards to Tyler and Abby’s stalker story, we already know Mariah is going to be played by either a light-skinned African-American, Biracial/Multiracial, or Biracial/Racially Ambiguous actress because the casting directors love casting Biracial, Multiracial, Mixed, and Lighter Than Brown Paper Bag actors and actresses on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.  That is another CHOCOLATE SUDS blog.

Kristoff St. John’s Plea for Michael Muhney to “Set the Record Straight”

As all of the fans and viewers of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS have already heard, actor Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) has been terminated from the shady soaper.  One of the rumored reasons is that he groped and sexually harassed co-star Hunter King (Summer Newman Abbott).  This has produced lots of negative publicity and controversy for the 41-year-old show.

Several actors and actresses have spoken out on the matter, which I personally feel is uncalled for and tacky at best because it is a case of He said, she said and it should be handled professionally by Sony, CBS, Lee Phillip Bell, the Bell Family, Jill Farren Phelps, Angelica McDaniel, Michael Muhney, and Hunter King.  They have included Melody Thomas Scott, Eileen Davidson, Eric Braeden, Kelli Goss, Robert Adamson, Jerry Douglas, and Kristoff St. John.

Kristoff tweeted Michael on Twitter for him to “set the record straight” about the allegations of Michael’s sexual harassment of Hunter.  He tweeted the following: “Please set the record straight, for those of us that have to take the abuse from the fans.  It’s hard to watch and read. #Bro” 

I like Kristoff and always have, but I personally do not feel it was his nor the other actors’ place to intervene in this matter.  Kristoff needs to worry about his own position on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS and make sure he continues to bring it as Neil Winters.  He needs to speak out about getting MORE airtime instead of either Wednesdays or twice a week under the Jill Farren Phelps/Shelley Altman regime.

To paraphrase gospel singer Yolanda Adams, the battle is NOT Kristoff’s nor the other actors.  It’s the LORD’s!
