Dying on The Young and The Restless

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on April 15, 2015 at 2:13 pm

soap-and-bubblesSo are we in the midst of some sort of cast member shake upor what? In the last few months we have lost the following characters in script: Austin (Summer’s brief husband), Courtney (Noah’s brief fiance) and Kelly [Stitch’s sister & Jacks brief ex-gf]. What in Sam Hill is going on?

Yesterdays broadcast displayed a surreal view of Jack marrying Phyllis while simultaneously under kidnap by… Kelly.

Yes! I know I said Kelly was dead in the first paragraph but the script keeps flipping post every affectionate gesture that Jack yields to Phyllis.

Yes! Jack and Phyllis were married a day ago and are now on their honey moon in some remote area and it seems that every time Jack kisses Phyllis or strokes her hair, the next moment shows him in wrist and ankle restraints in a similar room on a much shabbier bed with a gag in his mouth and he is yelling for help.

What the….?

Yep. That’s exactly what I’ve been saying over the last few days: “WT?,” and today hasn’t made me feel any more secure about any role being safe on my soaps. I do, however, have an additional “under the radar” concern about Kyle (Jack & Diane Jenkins son). Kyle just keeps showing up at the most odd and opportune times. He’s nowhere and everywhere with no alibi and hailing innocence. No one is that lucky or unlucky, so what are his intentions, motives and angles?

Is there any literal connection between Jacks turmoil’s and Kyle’s suspiciousness? Seems like a question out of the blue, but is it? I mean, currently in script these two guys are rogue. Jack appears to be living 2 different consciouses and Kyle seems to be a part of everyone’s sub-story. What are the writers up to? I’m Young, I’m Restless and I’m quite curious as to where this storyline is going and why the cast purge is so momentous?
yr_jack_kyle

I’d ask Lily or Devon ‘what’s up?,’ but they’re storyline is laying pretty low
after Hillary slept with Dad and son, writers are stumped on ‘where to go.’

Black folks can be quite dirty, but it’s not an easy write.
Daytime soaps are best served to the curb by our fam that is white.
The Black soaps rule the night via Tyler Perry. Right?

It’s quite the viewing delight and the storylines are best under stress,
I’m Qui
Glad to be alive to write and not Dying on The Young and Restless.

PS — While the cast line is starting to look barron
Police Chief Paul is focused on arresting Sharon.
WT?

Where is DRUCILLA today?

In Communication, Griot, Music, Networking, News, Self Improvement, TV Shows on February 24, 2015 at 5:28 am

DrucillaDrucilla! Drucilla! Won’t you please come back?
Neil is in trouble; his heart – filled with lack.

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,
I’m Qui
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. 🙂

But then…

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,
I’m Qui
Connected to all that is young and even the restless during this season.

Baby Come Back!

MURDER and MYSTERY without the DINNER

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on February 18, 2015 at 6:47 am

murdermysteryNOdinnerWho did it? Who did it? Who among kin
took an object to the back of the  head of Austin?

It was supposed to be fun,
but then Fen spiked the punch.

Abby Newman secretly invited each guest to party at her family’s cabin-stead
they all blacked out – and woke up feeling foggy in the head and Austin is dead.

output_OWFlhB

Abby Newman, Summer & Austin, Fen Baldwin

Ooo wee. There’s a murder mystery on Y&Rthe writers are no beginners.
They’ve served up another death and didn’t even give them dinner.

Beyond the murder mystery (that will, for the next few weeks, drive viewers insane),
there’s also the blizzard snow factor and that missing air plane.

Oh yes! A plane went down – Neil and his family were on board.
Turbulence took them down after Lilly called Hillary a whore.

The plane went down, more precisely at the point when everyone was staring Neil in the face,
after he revealed that he could indeed see and was hard clutching a brief case.

Screen Shot 2015-02-17 at 1.12.29 PM

Top Lft to Bottom Rt: Neil Winters, [wife] Hillary, [son] Devon, [daughter] Lilly, [her husband] Cane Ashby and Colin and Jill-Abbott Ashby

What’s in the briefcase?,” asked Lilly, Devon and concerned others.
This after Neil confronted his son and his wife on being lovers.

If mother nature were not the reason for the turbulence on that tragic plane ride,
bad energy from the fam, would be the blame for the crash and the pilots life.

Wreckage sprawled about 

Lying in the snow, Cane woke up first and began to yell and look around,
most folk regained their faculties, but Hillary is wreckage bound.

The plane was filled with family members only – the manifest wasn’t many;
so imagine the gut wrench of them all when they fail to locate Lilly.

The fever of our emotions were then thrown back to the cabin’s suspects and “who did it,”
that’s when Summer envisioned her hands ‘on an object’ and the spot where ‘she hid it.’

She ran to the couch, removed the seat cushion and screamed.
It seems Summer has killed her man — with no apparent reason at seam.

Oh my! Oh my! I’m sure she wishes it were a bad dream.
Now comes the work to find out why and what it all means.

Good work Y&R writers. I’m enjoying your hand at play,

Voting you MOST INTERESTING for choosing murder on lovers day.

Me and Dem Girls!!!

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on January 19, 2015 at 12:20 pm

DemGirlsNo! I’m not talking about the bosom, though I’ve been known to refer to my own  as ‘DEM GIRLS’; however, today I am talking about The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Have you been watching this season?

Cat Clawing. There’s still a lot of it. Talk about sensationalism — they have it! It’s the beauty of the bosom and the bottom; the roster ingredients produce a yummy and volatile chemistry. It has a Y&R feel, except not quite as scripted.

Easy on the eye – Hard on the palate. We curse like sailors. I hope I didn’t offend any sailors in saying that, but it’s true. I have found, in my short research, that the women folk really know how to eloquently throw together a run of meaningful curse words.

Head Game. There’s a lot of head game on exhibit in this reality show and I like it. Oh don’t go feeling sorry for any of the players – this is business. This is not real life, but more like an improv show. I dig it. It’s working and they are getting paid for it. I call that: Good Head Game. Any other kind of head game is futile. Speaking of “good head game,” have you caught an episode of Kandy Koated Nights? It’s  Kandi Burruss’ webisode. Check it out HERE.

Business Women. Each of these women know that their role on this roster is crucial to their financial bottom line, so if that means they have to create and throw shade to insure they all get paid… What do you think they’d do? I’d say they all have a good understanding of their roles and are mastering the art of execution because The Real Housewives of Atlanta is no where close to slowing down; there’s “business” on every episode.

MeI’m a low key moma, but I do like watching Dem Girls and that improv drama. Their fashions are kicking and the talent is plenty. I see myself in one; I see myself in many.

Me and Dem Girls — yeah, I’m hoisting them up,
I woke up to watching 5 DVR’d episodes in the cut.

I took fashion notes and grabbed some home decor ideas.
I know I’m in Arizona, but I love that southern appeal.

Having FAITH on Y&R

In Griot, Networking, News, TV Shows on December 26, 2014 at 10:38 am

Y&Rs FAITH 2015

[L-R] Alyvia Alyn and McKenna Grace

Yep! They did the switcheroo on us again. I had faith in the possibility casting agents  would do as much after seeing little Faith Newman (Alyvia Alyn) run away from home earlier this week and spit some lame sounding script line to Avery about being “scared of her Daddy.”

Now I know she’s not the script writer, but her line delivery was horrendous. She almost implicated that Nick Newman was up to unsavory and inappropriate actions, when what she meant to imply is the sadness that she was feeling because her father refuses to  marry her mother (Sharon Newman) for the umpteenth time.

The line delivery made me feel like I needed to call CPS, but having been watching the storyline closely I knew what little Faith was trying to say – still it didn’t sound good .

The Y&R Christmas broadcast reeled the view of a new Faith in place: actress McKenna Grace. Actually, McKenna is an old Faith given a new shot. The casting agents had used McKenna before to manifest the role of Faith, but after a brief storyline gap, Faith was returned being portrayed as as Alyvia.

I’m really glad McKenna is back on the show. It takes a certain kind of comprehension and chemistry to deliver some of the complex lines that the Y&R writers produce. Working with child actors isn’t easy and I’m sure being a child actor is no easy task either, irregardless chemistry trumps. The actor must have an understanding/comprehension of complex situations and delivery the line on-point or the scene is a bust and someone may end up calling CPS…

Welcome back McKenna. I look forward to seeing you in Y&R dimension.

divider1

Did you see the Christmas broadcast? Did you see the scene?
If you did — then you visually know what I mean.

I didn’t fall in love with the line and I didn’t feel compassion for the deliverer.
I felt like calling CPS and having them (for Faith’s own safety) remove her.

Faith was hiding under a table, hugging its leg and looking crabby
when Avery asked what she was afraid of, Faith responded, “My Daddy.”

Then the soap went to a break and I was like what?
Thank God it was a good family friend asking Faith as much.

If a perfect stranger received Faith’s response,
I’m sure CPS would have quickly come.

I didn’t know how to feel about the role that Alyvia was playing.
but putting McKenna in the game, means line-execution slaying.

I think Y&R is well on it’s way to birthing us another adolescent actress that we will love,
I’m Qui Signature Logo
Good morning to thee, I thought you could use a Y&R )))HUG(((.

Hug me back. I’m a hugger —  this is not a phase.
And by all means get back to having a Merry & Happy Holiday!

Young writers Restless’ly believe in spirit…

Y&R Delia_ChloeLast year, on October 14th,
My little Y&R heart did sink.

It was the day the writers wrote off Delia’s role.
It was art –imitating-life, and it ripped my soul.

Today kept in stride with what we all know,
it’s the celebration of just 12-months ago.

That little Delia Abbott was quite the star.
Looks like the actress hasn’t gone to far.

Today she was cameo’ing; she came back to talk to her dad.
The writers are spirit believers, and the script isn’t too bad.

I love Y&R! It’s the entertainment that keeps on giving.
The shows writers have the stuff to keep a character living!

Just 12-months later, the same storyline is in play,

Mid-way Through…

In Communication, Griot, Networking, TV Shows on June 18, 2014 at 5:36 am

output_0LkN4vSo Dylan is how old, — about 40? And today is a good a day for a day player to drop in on Y&R and claim that Ian is infertile and could not possibly be the father of Nikki’s first born Dylan McAvoy. What does it all mean? Well Mid-way Through we find that the drama continues to compound…

As Paul lay still in a hospital bed
Summer is stuck up in her head

Thinking Austin is misunderstood and that he’s great
when he’s the one who shot Paul the other day.

Summer and Austin are still on-the-run,
he knows it’s big trouble, she thinks it’s fun.

Paul is in need of a liver transplant in short order/quick,
and the lack of matching donors is making Cricket sick.

Just at a point when she and Paul were talking babies
he ends up in a med-induced coma, in a situation “maybe.”

So Niel proposed to Hilary and her ring is super huge
But Lilly get with the “welcoming crew”? She’ll simply refuse.

And every time she see’s ol Hil’, she’s giving her the blues,
for making their lives a living hell; Hil’s the devil’s muse.

There is no shame from the other woman to the one who ended things so messy,
so Hilary holds no punches back whenever she runs into Attorney Leslie.

Leslie left Neal before the alter and married a man we never heard of,
then brought him back to Genoa City as if for giggles and love.

It’s weird. It’s weird and weirder still. I don’t like it y’all,
but things get even weirder as we discuss the lineage of Paul.

If Dylan is not Ian and Nikki’s son, then ‘Who must the father be?’,
I’m Qui 
and I think the server of Dylan’s DNA isn’t related to the I but perhaps the P.

The world is full of movers and shakers who definitely ‘do what it do,’
I like the look of things on Y&R, I’m already hooked Mid-way Through

Coming around to Billy…

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement, TV Shows on April 21, 2014 at 12:50 pm
Billy Miner vs Tom David

L-R: Billy Miner and Tom David, ie… the beloved Billy Abbott

Billy Abbott that is. Have you been watching Tom David refill his shoes that Billy Miller relinquished last year? I really hated to see Mr. Miner go. He shaped the Billy Abbott role into something sexy. He brought swag to the persona. I am so sure he has exited Y&R for bigger dramatic roles. No, I have no inside information to share at this time, but you know you can tell when the depth of a character resides solely with the actor by how he comprehends and relays the writers template. Billy Minor single handledly gave Billy Abbott a huge fundamental facelift.

Tom David was the first Billy Abbott ever casted in Y&R back in the 80’s, and a couple (or few) have come and gone since, all were interchangeable and stuck to the script, but when Billy Miner wore the shoes, the writer was forced to add swag to the characters scripted choreography and to their credit, they did it seamlessly. Billy Abbott went from being Jill Abbott’s annoying, rich and aimless son to someone a house wife could and would break from mopping to study. Bravo writers! I saw it all happen and it was beautiful, then Billy Miner exited the cast last year to faites de meilleures choses

Tom David puts his baptized shoes back on and assumes his role-right.  At first it was a funky fit. He was walking funny, (in character), as if to say, ‘Now, whose shoes are these? I’m married to who?’ It was a struggle to watch Tom get back into the swing of things, but then today… today I tune into Y&R and see Billy Abbott moving forward in niching out his new view. It seems the writers have literally killed the old Billy (crafted by Billy Miner) and have started anew with a lighter, more social kind of Billy Abbott in script. Today I found myself not struggling, but Coming around to Billy. I can’t say it was anything in particular he said, but was definitely in how he handled himself in what he did. I do remember a scene he had with Chelsea Newman today, where he stopped by at a rather odd hour and unannounced, I thought I was about to be annoyed but Billy handled his role with a unique and interesting set of likable, quick-debating skills that won him entrance into Chelsea’s domain and into the favorable column in my loyal viewers mind.

Whew! That was a mouthful! That’s the work of the writing cast on Y&R. I’m full of praise because I know first hand how rough it is to keep the long-term interest of the peering public. ALL MY CHILDREN knows it. GENERAL HOSPITAL knows it and RYAN’S HOPE died shortly after it’s birth. Surely you remember? Well knock-on-wood, because that is not the story of Y&R. And I am content still, even though Billy and Victoria Newman-Abbott are filing for divorce. I am convinced that there may be a be a good life in the script coming down the pipeline for ol’ Billy – of course a lot of that will hinge on what Tom David can do in his shoes. I’m ready to see him dance. How about you? Yo DJ!! Pump that Y&R joint!

decorative-line-divider1


Yes! I’m Coming around to Billy, and I’m really glad about it.
I thought he’d be annoying and considered the role and ‘out-it.’

I felt like Billy Miner’s talents did the role a favor and that the story line would unfortunately show
that the scripted character took a shot-to-the-eye when they let Billy Miner go.

Yes, the switch started out slow and whenever Tom David would enter the set, I’d go and get water.
There was no interest in my mid-day routine for Jill’s son, ‘the annoying, the rich and the guarded.’

Though today the tides seems to be changing and rolling someone new up onto the beach.
I’m Qui
and Y&R’s Tom David is the one who seems to be up to dance. I’m looking forward to his role-right beat.

He has my attentions.
Enough to warrant this mention.

PS — Did you see that kiss Billy planted on Chelsea today? Wooo Hooo!

Solving Diane Jenkins Murder

In Griot, News, TV Shows on February 9, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Have you been watching The Young & The Restless? Are you following the story line closely? Recently video surfaced of Nikki Newman fighting on the pond bridge with Diane Jenkins. Deacon shot the film and edited the footage to appear that Nikki killed her. And even though the authorities have a locker full of evidence, (including Deacons cutting room floor footage), they still came to the conclusion that Nikki did it.

Don’t be fooled by the writers attempt to have an “invisible hand”. Please tell me you remember the zip lock bag Ronan flaunted that had the syringe in it? Diane had a drug in her system, and though the name of the drug escapes me, it was the same drug that Patty poisoned Jack and Genevieve with on Thanksgiving Day. Remember that? I do. I DVR’d it.

So the writers have seemingly closed the case by blaming Nikki Newman and then “conveniently” dropping the charges on her in the name of “self defense”. Ok. Really? THAT NEVER HAPPENS in real life and what happened to investigating the owner of the syringe or the drug that Diane had in her system that slowed her heart rate & facilitated her death?

A note about “the video” Deacon made showcasing Nikki with the bloody rock and Diane’s lacerated head: I do believe Nikki picked up a rock and hit Diane in the head, but I don’t think that’s what killed her. While Diane lie unconscious I believe Patty entered the scene, verbally expressed her dislike for Diane to her unconscious face and gave her an overdose of the drug. Then for whatever convenient reason, Patty dropped the syringe, allowing Ronan to find it, zip lock it and add it to official evidence.

Patty is once again whisked away to a prison hospital facility to sport a white huggers jacket in a room with down comforter walls. Much like the place Adam must her found her in – in the first place.

Oh yes! The real story still lies dormant waiting to future surface. You gotta love those Bells and the associate writers of this show.

The writers of the show are great at making trash appear envious and livable.
I’ve enjoyed the hoops and noted the loops but the writers hand was not invisible.

This isn’t Vegas yet there are slights of hands but the dealers aren’t clean,
I’m Qui
and if you believe Nikki did it – Maybe you’ve missed and an episode or a scene.

Trust me, Trust me –> Crazy Patty did it.
and in the future Nikki’s charges will be completely be omitted.

Who killed Diane Jenkins

In Griot, Networking, TV Shows on January 11, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Who killed this woman?


Even though Victor Newman sits in a jail cell
after having confessed to the murder of Diane Jenkins — HE DIDN’T DO IT. Even though Nicholas Newman had a tiff with Diane Jenkins prior to her getting her head bashed in at the creek — HE DIDN’T DO IT. Victoria Newman didn’t do it. Nicky Newman didn’t do it. Deacon didn’t even do it. I’m no sleuth but I am an avid Y & R follower and I’m pretty sure the crazy arsed Patty did it. Patty is Paul’s sister. She’s crazy and insane and I think Adam Newman incited her to do the murderous thang that was done to Diane Jenkins.

Now there’s no NEW CONFESSIONS out yet that support my theory, but Patty has recently been worked back into the scene as “Myrna” — Genevieve‘s housekeeper, who recently had facial reconstruction after surviving an explosion that Colin (Genevieve’s ex-husband) allegedly caused. Before the explosion happened, we always heard Jack Abbott speak of Myrna to Genevieve in passing conversation, but never really got to put our eyes on the seemingly shy housekeeper, until the writers decided they needed to finally close the chapter on “WHO KILLED DIANE JENKINS”.

I imagine they didn’t want to pen it on a staple cast member, so they brought the loony toon Patty back from padded lock up to take the blame. It’s not so much a ‘classic move’ as it is an easy move. BLAME IT ON THE VILLAGE IDIOT – or at least the town loon if you need to close the case soon. I also predict Adam Newman had something to do with commissioning her to kill Diane. Ahhh, Adam is so good at persuading, (or so the writers WRITE IT as so). I’m never sold on his bird brain schemes — but without them, it wouldn’t be “the soaps”.

The facts are not all in and no one has been seriously charged for Diane’s murder. Victor Newman sits in jail under blame, at his own hands. In his mind, he thought Nikki Newman killed her while under the influence of alcohol, (she’s a recovering alcoholic). Nikki couldn’t remember if she’d killed her or not, so Victor swung into action and took the blame to avoid his former favorite stripper and ex-wife from going to prison for murder.

Alas, Nikki didn’t kill Diane and Victor sits in denim behind bars for nothing. With so much time on his hands he’s recently asked Sharon Newman, (his former daughter-in-law) to marry him and he put at least a 4 carat rock on her ring finger. Nikki and Nicholas are outraged that he proposed and that Sharon is wearing the ring. Victor stands to confuse his grand children born between Nicholas and Sharon, as they currently call Victor ‘Grandpa’.

We’d all classify this as trailer trash or Jerry Springer type stuff,
If the writers didn’t make the characters bank balances so rough.

They are stinking rich and their trash supersedes a trailer.
They are a hoarders dream –> they stack legacy paper.

They’re fictional and exciting and filthy alike.
They are the staple to so many who love the afternoon soap life.

Aye! I am one who loves soap in the afternoon. Perhaps because I’m a writer.
As trashy as Victor Newman is acting – he’s quite the distinguished exciter.

So Who killed Diane Jenkins? Well don’t be looking at me.
I’m Qui
That Young & Restless She & I’m pretty sure the answer is Patty.
