I like Devon with Hillary. I know, she doesn’t deserve either of them, but I would rather see her with Devon. It is just kind of creepy to see her with Neil, don’t you agree? I bet that Neil is going to get his sight back and no one is going to be aware of it so that he will be able to catch Devon and Hillary in their little love game.

Nikki is really irritating me! How many times is she going to go back to the bottle before enough is enough? I know that being an alcoholic is hard, but goodness, give us all a break. Between her MS and her addiction all she is getting lately is pity.

Victor could not have believed that she was bringing him a drink, please, he knows Nikki better than anyone, but he doesn’t realize that she is getting ready to crack open a bottle of Vodka? I don’t see that, but hey, maybe he is getting less aware in his old age.

I have to admit that seeing Jack say goodbye to Phyllis was kind of difficult. I just wish that he would have seen her hand move or her eye flutter, but that would have been way too easy. Wonder if he is going to marry Kelly and then they let Phyllis come out of her coma? I hope she is back in Genoa City before the trial of her son-in-law because Summer is going to need her mom during that time.

Who the heck is Mariah? Who is her mom? I wonder if she truly is Mariah or if she may actually be a long-lost twin of Cassidy and Sharon never knew that she gave birth to twins? Could be, Sharon is a quack at times and she was very young when she had Cassidy. Sharon has already told Mariah that her family is complete now that she has her in her life. Seriously? Mariah is still hiding things from Nick and Sharon and she is also after Nick!

The jealousy monster has come to live in Christine lately. Poor Paul having to put up with her whining all the time about Nikki and the fact that Nikki kept Dylan away from him. It’s not like Paul wants Nikki or vice versa, but she just can’t seem to let them be friends. I think she has a real problem with any woman being interested in Paul at all. Why not? Paul is a handsome man and has proven to be a good man for the most part, but he does seem to find his way into some messed up relationships.

I am guessing that Kevin is writing a book of some sort. If the book includes all the voices that have been in his head over most of his life, there is no doubt it would be a best seller. All joking aside, I think Kevin does deserve a break from all the bad things that seem to happen to him. Kevin deserves a good relationship with a good woman.

Chelsea and Billy seem to be getting friendly again. Adam needs to be making his way back to town before Conner begins to truly believe Billy is his daddy. The writers are probably waiting to bring Adam and Phyllis back around the same time.

Onto B&B, can anyone say that they did not see Hope and Wyatt tying the knot? I kind of figured that she would end up with Wyatt, but prayed she would not be so stupid and really go thru with it. When I saw her leave him and take off the diamond, I was sure she was running to the nearest phone, but she just wanted to take a plunge in the water with Wyatt. She is really beginning to be like her mom with each passing day.

I feel so sorry for Liam, but hey, if she can marry Wyatt just because he was a little late, then let her go! He deserves so much better out of life and from the looks of it Ivy wants to give him that.

Will Deacon be able to figure out the truth behind the death of Ricardo or will Quinn get away with it?

I think Deacon will figure it all out and hopefully sooner rather than later. I know, Quinn needs to move on, but she does make for some interesting story lines. I do not like her or her son, but what is a soap without a villain? Quinn is B&B’s villain right now.

Ally is not happy about her cousin being married to Wyatt at all and I am sure that she will have something to say about it when they arrive back to LA. I think I heard her tell Oliver that she loved him on today’s episode! I think they make a fairly cute couple, but we need a bit more out of them. Give us something besides carnations and fairy tales. Ally is not a little girl; she needs some real romance in her life. Maybe he Aunt Pam should spike a lemon bar for Oliver!

We will just have to wait until next week to see what is going to happen with all our favorite families, but until then, I hope you all have a great weekend and keep watching Your Hometown News Leader, WDBJ7.

August 7, 2014

I was saying earlier in the week that there may not be much to talk about in my blog, but as usual, things begin to heat up as the week ends.

Was glad to see Nikki win her court case with Ian, but it is sad to see her past mistakes appeared in the tabloids. We all probably knew when she ran out of Michael’s place that she was headed to the local bar. Of course, that is probably the same bar that Devon is hoping to meet Hillary at later in the day. Maybe her drinking won’t be hidden for long, but then again, maybe she will see Devon and Hillary in a not so great position and have something to hold over them to keep quiet about her drinking.

Devon sure is making his intentions to Hillary known. He wants her and from the way it looks he is going to have her. Will she meet Devon at the bar? Will they do more than chit-chat and gaze into each other’s eyes? Oh yea! I think that Hillary will not be able to hold back any longer, and their relationship will get very heated over the next few days. I have to say that I would much rather see him with Hillary than Abby.

Poor Neil has already spent who knows how much money on this house and for what? To give to a woman who is in love with his son, a woman who can’t seem to kiss him anymore without seeing Devon. Cane needs to come clean with Neil and let him know what he knows. Save the man from so much pain!

I also liked it when Sharon gave Victor a piece of advice, stay out of her life. Firing her shrink may keep her from being able to remember what has happened for a longer time, but I think that Phyllis is getting ready to make her appearance and the news will come out. Sharon won’t be able to hide it any longer. With or without the assistance of her shrink, Victor will get the truth, he always does.

Mariah is beginning to play Nick like a violin. I couldn’t believe it when she actually baked him a peach pie and claimed it was her favorite too. Nick was not too happy with her when he heard her talking to her Mom on the phone. Did anyone else notice that he also made sure to ask her what her Mom’s name was? I think he is going to be looking her up in the near future. Will be interesting to see who she turns out to be.

Kevin got lucky this time around with not having to go to jail. I don’t think that the Genoa City Police should have even thought about locking him up. He is the one who found out that Stitch is not really who he claims to be. I know, it was not Kevin’s place to steal the badge, but who else would have done it? No one! Stitch needs to be ousted for what he has done. Sure, he claims it was an accident, but who knows if it really was.

Victoria needs to do as she has been and just try to stay away from Billy and Stitch. They are both pains and she doesn’t need to be around all that drama. Wait, I forgot, this is a soap and soaps are all about drama. I still think the baby is Billy’s, but I do not think that Billy and Victoria will end up back together. I think Billy is going to end up with Chelsea in the end.

Let’s discuss Hope, Liam and Wyatt! AGAIN we have the love triangle, but this time Hope is supposed to be this woman who is in charge of a huge designer clothing line, but she can’t see that Wyatt is playing her. Please! I think that they need some new writers on this show. Why is it that Hope has to be so much like her mother? Brother vs. brother must be the way the Logans operate.

Look at Katie and Brooke, both going after the same men. Sure Ridge and Bill are not brothers, but it is kind of the same thing, just sister vs. sister. Come on, there has to be something else that this family can do besides make clothes, swap partners and eat lemon bars all day.
