CBS is doing a great job this week on the soaps! So much is going on that I honestly do not know where to begin! I have to pick someplace, so here we go: Phyllis is truly back and this new one is beginning to grow on me. She actually looks more evil than Michelle did when she played the role of “Phyllis.”

She knows the truth about her accident and she is just waiting for the perfect time to fill Nick in. Sharon needs to listen to Casey’s warning about the truth coming out and she needs to buckle up for the ride that Phyllis is about to take her on.

I’m so excited about this storyline. Do people seriously think that Phyllis will not bring down the house on this marriage? Summer knows her Mom is not happy about a lot of things going on and that is why she is hoping her Dad (Nick) would have been able to talk some sense into her, but all Nick did was make her even more ready to blow up. Hopefully the writers let this storyline end soon! I can’t wait to see Sharon try to back pedal her way out of this one.

Jack! What in the world are you doing? Have you lost your mind? What if that had been Phyllis walking in on you and Kelly? You think she hates Sharon, well she is not going to be too happy about Kelly when she finally figures all that mess out. Remember Diane? Remember Phyllis running her over? Remember the pool house? Memories of Phyllis flood my mind when I see this new one in action.

Lilly needs to learn to keep her mouth shut. She has told Devon and Neil that she thinks Hillary is pregnant, but Hillary says no. I’m thinking that she is and just doesn’t realize it yet. Come on! She has to be! How else are they going to keep this story going? They can’t just have Devon and Hillary sleeping around all the time and nothing come from it. My opinion is that the writers need to move on with it and put Hillary and Devon together for good. So what if Neil gets hurt? He slept with his brother’s wife and got her pregnant -- or has everyone forgotten that Neil is not Mr. Nice Guy?

Dylan is in for a big surprise concerning the coffee shop. Yes, I do believe that Joe is the one who is making sure that Dylan loses his coffee shop and possibly Avery. I doubt Dylan will lose Avery, but I’m sure Joe will make a move on her.

Who in the heck is the woman from the church when Chelsea said goodbye to Adam? Is she someone that Adam has hired to watch over Chelsea? Chelsea is not too happy about receiving the hanky back that belonged to Adam and for it to happen on Halloween that is freaky!

Stitch needs to tell Victoria that his Mom is the one who actually killed his Father so he can move on with her and live a happy life. Who knows, maybe if the truth comes out his ex will find a way to come to town and bring his son. Maybe Stitch and his ex will get back together and then Billy will come back to Victoria.

Michael can’t go thru this possible cancer storyline without some type of support. He needs to let Kevin know what is going on and then maybe Kevin will be able to help him, but the way he is handling the situation, Kevin is thinking that Michael is having an affair. This will only lead to heartbreak for someone.

Blown away with Myah and all that she thinks she is! That is how I feel right now! I know I have said it before and I will say it again, I do not like Myah!! If it were me in the situation with Caroline, Myah and Rick; I would have slapped her silly in Brooke’s living room when she started talking all hateful to me in front of Rick! Who does she think she is? She thinks she is Rick’s new girl, but it won’t last long.

Once Eric lets Rick know that he has changed his mind and that he wants Rick to be CEO he will forgive Caroline. Then he will throw Ridge out on his butt or he may keep him on as a designer. Either way, Ridge is NOT CEO, which does make for a better day.

Katie needs to also do something about Ridge and his ego. Ridge acts as if nothing happened with Caroline, but hello, you kissed her and you still have not bought Katie a real ring. She has a ribbon on her finger. Sure, the ribbon was cute for the first month, but it isn’t like you are broke. Buy her a ring or cut the ribbon loose and let her go so she can pursue Bill and a possible future with him.

Loving the interaction that Liam and Ivy have been having. Hoping that they hook up and make a life with each other since Hope is no longer in the picture. When Hope first became pregnant there was a story in my head that possibly Quinn would do something and Hope would lose the baby and end up with Liam, but I don’t see that happening. So, let Liam be happy with Ivy!

That is about it for this week, but I hope to see all of you back here next week for another few paragraphs about the fantasy lives of the soaps. Keep watching them on WDBJ7.

Have a safe and wonderful Halloween. Watch out for the possible snow coming our way.

October 4, 2014

Where do I begin? So much has happened over the last two weeks on both soaps, but I will have to admit that Y&R has more story lines going on than one can shake a stick at. Guess that is as good a place to start as any.

Phyllis is sure making herself known around Genoa City again as the one to stay away from or as the one to keep close. You’ve heard the saying about keeping friends close, but enemies closer! I think Phyllis fits that to a tee.

Glad to see she is awake and back home, but she certainly is making Jack and Summer’s life a bit crazy. Jack is so confused that he doesn’t know which way is up and Summer is scared to let her mom in on any news. I feel that Jack needs to let Phyllis know about Kelly and after seeing the looks that Phyllis was giving yesterday when she walked in on them, it may happen today. I would not want to be on the receiving end of Phyllis’ anger, would you?

Summer is trying to be a good daughter, but in the end will she end up ruining her marriage by trying to keep all this a secret or will Austin give Phyllis what she wants so she will accept him into their family? I say, give her what she wants and don’t worry about anything else. Phyllis is going to find out soon enough, so Austin might as well get something out of it, right?

I do not like where the writers are taking Michael’s story line. Cancer! Will he tell Lauren or will he keep it a secret? I think he will end up telling Avery and NOT Lauren! Seems as if the writers want to use Avery/Michael together for some reason, why else would they have put them in the same law office together?

Whose baby is Chloe’ carrying? Did she somehow get pregnant by Billy before leaving town or did she have an affair with her doctor or another patient while in California? This will be interesting and I’m sure the writers are not going to let that story lie quiet for too long. I’m betting that the baby is Billy’s.

Stitch and Ashley are good together, but is it that stinky new fragrance or does Stitch really like her? I think that fragrance has something to do with it. Kind of like an aphrodisiac or something. It wasn’t long after he was complaining of how bad it smelt that he was kissing her. Victoria sure does have a jealousy toward anyone that Stitch is kissing, but then again, he does seem to be caught kissing more than his fair share of women in Genoa City.

As for Hillary, Devon and Neil, I am so over their love triangle. Hillary should have left Neil when she was given the chance. All this sneaking around is crazy. Sure Neil is blind, but did he not smell Devon in the room? Could he not tell that someone else was there with him and Cane? I thought that when you lost one sense that the others got better, guess not in Neil’s case.

I agree with Lilly, I think Hillary is going to be pregnant and it is going to be Devon’s. We all heard Neil complaining that they had not had sex since before his injury, well; she had sex with someone because she is going to be pregnant. Explain that, Hillary!
