He married a girl named Hillary and she delivered the slash
that rendered his relationship with Devon to the trash.
I knew the marriage would be a farce, long before she ever said, “I do.”
She recited her vows to Neil when it was clear that your son was her Boo.
Shame on Devon too. Yes! He has earned the right to feel shame.
Things are such a familial mess, you’d be a reckoning change.
Drucilla! Can you hear me? [Changing direction] Can you hear now?
Make your way back to us anyway… anyhow.
You last dropped off of the scene via a very steep cliff,
You’ve been gone long enough to heal a leg, an arm and a hip.
If your heart is still in it – come back and look after your man.
If anyone knew how to organize chaos – it was you who lead the band.
It’s not fair for the only 2 black male residents on the show
to have to fight for the love of 1 woman, especially in the snow.
Yes girl. Neil, Lilly and Devon were in transit – elevation above ground,
when a winter storm appeared with quick alarms and knocked their plane down.
Jill, her hubby and his son were also on the plane.
Jill Abbot’s former “faux son” is your son-in-law, Cane.
Yes girl. Cane Ashby is from Australia, and his physique ain’t at all bad.
He’s crazy about your daughter Lilly and Jill Abbott married his Dad.
Hillary is new. You don’t know her. She’s not been too long around.
Seeking revenge after her moms fatal alcohol binge – brought her to town.
She blasted your family via the internet – in hopes to defame to no end,
and somewhere between getting busted and making folks feel disgusted,
she became Devon’s girlfriend.
She was sleeping with Devon on the low, after he inherited billions of dollars.
This was not good info for his sis to know — for he knew she’d scream and holla.’
Thererfore, he and Hillary gave no clues and raised no flags of alarm,
but the moment Devon tended to his real gf, ol’ Hil fell into Neil’s arms.
Devon eventually broke it off with his real gf but Hillary dated Neil in stride.
Devon egged her on to cut it off, but Hillary preferred “the chase and hide.”
You know the game “chase and hide,” you’re among the best who played it at will.
You had the same situation in your life, at one point, between brothers Malcomn and Neil.
The Y&R soap writers intended for Hillary’s scene to be like yours,
they may be right – it would be Hil’s delight…
Drucilla: Make it all a blur!
Hillary isn’t you and you have been M.I.A. on Y&R for too long,
and I know its wishful thinking but “Baby Come Back” is still my song.
Drucilla, Drucilla. Where art thee?
Victoria Rowell: If you see Dru, please have her to call Qui. 🙂
Music: BABY COME BACK By: Bootha Vandross [formerly BooNaap]
Believe it or not and just as fast as I can write,
I found an article on Y&R that nearly blurred my sight.
It seems Ms. Victoria Rowell has filed a law suit
against Y&R, and the details aren’t cute.
As much as I love Y&R I am saddened about the news
I must respect Mrs. Rowell and her in-house knowledgable view.
You can read the summary of the story HERE – and get this,
she’s suing for re-employment on The Young & The Restless.
I read this after my previous article – where I’m begging Dru to come back.
When there’s a vibe in the air, I usually catch it like that.
I will usually hit directly on a headline that is trending today
without reading a headline prior – without knowing the quoted say.
Anyway, Victoria’s gripe also covers the lack
of respectful treatment given to talent that is black.
Another gripe that she has is — and get this,
Y&R has no black producers that are executives.
This is quite believable, I just bear and grin
knowing the writers don’t understand how to connect brown kin.
I love the array of melanin tones that they have allowed to be mixed in,
though Darius McCrary may have been too black- thus his role had to end.
I laugh about it myself. Dark skinned folk aren’t just a rarity on Y&R —
I think most black folk are surprised that Viola Davis is a serial star.
It seems to be, (and pardon me, my observation is from a chic who’s black),
that soap opera roles fashioned for us, are a bit thin and lack.
While I do recognize the lack of blacks, I am not quick to complain,
because other soaps struggle to cast any. Other soaps remain lame.
But what Victoria is trying to do, is to “even the playing field” at the risk of her own sorrow;
Victoria Rowell is going through the trouble to sue, for the young actress that will come tomorrow.
Rosa Parks didn’t take a stand for herself, she did it so others after her could have a seat.
Victoria is doing the same thing here. I pray Y&R will consider her concerns and meet.
Until such time, Neil will be in a doozy
and Hillary will be the “misplaced” floozy,
when it didn’t have to be like that — if we understood ethnic kin
and gave consideration to hiring at least 2 more black women.
Make one of them a single mother and the other perhaps a stripper.
One could be on “the struggle” and the other one could be richer.
One can fondle Devon and the other could call Malcom back.
Lilly will still have her Cane and Neil won’t be in a love lack.
I still want Drucilla to come back – for my own loyal viewership reasons,
Connected to all that is young and even the restless during this season.
