Divorce, babies, people coming out of the woodwork, lies, adultery, backstabbing, jealousy, it is all here this week. Both soaps have a lot of things going on, so let’s get started.

Neil has asked Hillary for a divorce. Of course, this could be her way out, but she is trying to convince him into letting her stay. What is she doing? She leaves Devon’s bed and goes to Neil for this meeting to hear he is willing to let her go, and she says NO! I don’t understand that move at all, but I guess we will have to wait and see what happens next.

Victoria sure does look a bit jealous of Billy and Chelsea, but why should she feel guilty now? She was the one who filed for divorce and who isn’t sure who her baby’s daddy is. I think she needs to just go back to Stitch and be done with it. If the baby is Billy’s, then I’m sure he will be a father to the child. If it is Stitch’s baby, then he will already be there for the child.

Looks like Abby is still not too sure about Stitch, but I think the way they argue with each other may mean they are beginning to warm up to each other. I know, doesn’t make much sense since they argue so much, but opposites do tend to be attracted to each other.

Nikki’s drinking is really beginning to take over her world again. Snapping at all the people around her and sneaking, she is bound to get caught soon. She has never been one to hide her alcoholism for long. I’m surprised that Maureen hasn’t already let the cat out of the bag to her kids about Nikki drinking, but I also think she is going to hold this over Nikki’s head and use it to get some money out of her.

The story between Kelly and Maureen looks to be a touchy subject to Kelly. She is not happy about her mom being in town at all. Of course, it seems like Stitch doesn’t want her around either, so she should just leave, but as I said before, she is in need of something. Probably money and what better way to get that than blackmail. Looks like Jack is going to be trying to fix the relationship between Kelly and Maureen, but will that just lead to more trouble, of course it will!

Will Phyllis be making her debut during Nick and Sharon’s wedding or the reception? It would be an awesome time for her to come back to Genoa City. She should come back during that time and have all of her memory about the fall and blow Sharon out of the water. Would I be happy, oh yea!

Kevin and Mariah seem to be getting closer these days. Misfits usually do tend to stick together. Kevin is so afraid of being alone, being in the dark, locked away, etc. and Mariah is so outgoing and out to do whatever it takes to survive. They would be a good couple together. Mariah kind of reminds me a bit of Chloe, as far as the way she goes and gets what she wants. Could be the reason Kevin seems to be getting closer to her.

Liam, Hope and Wyatt are all in a mess again, thanks to Quinn and her trip to Paris to stop Liam from marrying Hope. Yes, she has been found out, of course, she tried to lie her way out of it at first, but Liam had hard evidence against her this time. I kind of feel sorry for Wyatt for having such a horrible person for a mom, but he is the one who has allowed her back into his life, so he gets what he gets.

Will Hope make the right decision and leave Wyatt for Liam or will she feel sorry for Wyatt and stay with him? I am hoping she leaves and goes to Liam, but I also thought that Ivy was cute with Liam, so I am kind of on the fence.

Quinn, on the other hand, needs to be locked away somewhere. She is going to end up seriously hurting someone if they don’t do something with her soon. Look at everything she has done since she began the show. The lady is nuts!

Bill is playing with fire when it comes to his boys. Playing favorites will do nothing but get him in trouble with one of them. Quinn is going to see to it that Bill does everything within his power to make sure Wyatt gets everything she wants for him. She is also trying to get Bill, but not too sure that will ever happen.

Looks like we will all see where Liam, Wyatt and Hope end up soon or will we just see another version of Brooke’s life? We all know it, but some are just too scared to say it, Hope is Brooke made over! There I put it out there, does anyone disagree?

That is it for this week. Keep watching your favorite soaps on your Hometown station, WDBJ7, and I will see you all next week. Have a wonderful weekend.

Sept. 12, 2014

Can anyone else say seeing Shamar Moore this week on Y&R was amazing! Sure do wish he was back on as Malcolm full time, but doubt ever seeing that happen. Meredith Baxter Birney coming to Y&R as Nikki’s drinking partner and as the mother to Stitch and Kelly has also been pretty good.

Looks like Hillary is safe from Malcolm since he actually only came to town for a couple of days. Anyone who knows Malcolm and Neil know that they usually share their partners, but looks like this time Neil is going to be sharing his partner with his son, Devon. It was nice to see Lilly apologize to Hillary and thank her for taking care of her dad, but we all know when she finds out about Hillary and Devon things are going to get really ugly between the two of them.

Now that Maureen knows Nikki is Victor Newman’s wife, will she turn to blackmailing Nikki for her drinking? I’m sure you all saw her eyes light up when she saw Nikki’s picture in the paper and found out her name was Newman. How much longer will Nikki be able to hide the fact that she is drinking again from her family? Victor is beginning to think something is up with her and he isn’t even home much anymore to see what she is doing.

Looks like Victor’s approach to bringing Phyllis out of her coma is going just as he had planned. I still think Phyllis looks a bit scary right now, but hey, I guess when you have been in a coma for a year you kind of have the right to not look 100 percent. I was kind of hoping her nurse, who was banished from the hospital wing that Phyllis is in, would be able to get a hold of Jack and let him know she is awake, but it looks like that may not happen.

Jack is sure having a hard time getting past the memory of Phyllis. He has seen her in his bed when he woke up with Kelly. He even imagined her sitting on the couch discussing take out after Kelly left to get groceries to cook Jack a meal. I think once he goes back to Georgia and sees Phyllis is awake he is going to have some serious guilt issues about leaving Phyllis. Not sure if he and Kelly will be together long after he sees Phyllis is awake, but not sure what Phyllis will do about Jack being with Kelly either. They say she is not going to be the same Phyllis this time around.

Mariah is not the least bit happy about Sharon being her mom right yet. I’m sure once she figures out she would have a lot of money if she accepted the fact Sharon is her mom, her entire attitude will change. Kevin is getting ready to head down a bad road with Mariah, I do believe. Sure, Kevin needs to have a great storyline, but Mariah, please! I’m sure the writers could find someone better for him to hook up with. She is going to be trouble with a capital T for Kevin.

Can you believe Wyatt and Hope! I was shocked when I heard Wyatt ask his dad to make Liam move out of the house in Malibu so he and Hope could move there to start a family. Bill needs to remember Liam is the one who has been cheated here, not Wyatt. Liam was in Paris to marry Hope, but Quinn assisted in that not happening and now she is married to Wyatt.

Bill knows Quinn pushed Ivy off the bridge, but instead of coming clean with Liam he keeps her secret. Not good! He needs to be the one to fill Liam in on the truth. This is not going to look good for him in Brooke’s eyes when she finds out he knew this and did nothing about it.

Hope is messing with Ivy right now and I have to say I do not think it is going to end well for Hope. I think Hope trying to keep Ivy away from Liam is only going to push her closer to him. Where does she get off anyway? She is married, to Liam’s brother and she needs to let Liam “heal” in his own way. I’m sure Ivy will be able to get his mind off of Hope.

Myah is really trying her hand at getting Rick back, but will it work? Will she be able to convince Rick that Caroline is not right for him and that they need to be together? We all know where this is going! Myah is going to figure out a way to make Rick think Caroline and Ridge are having an affair so she will be able to help Rick get past his wife’s betrayal.
