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?

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.

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.

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,
I’m Qui
Voting you MOST INTERESTING for choosing murder on lovers day.
