During SNL's Weekend Update on Saturday, December 19, 2015, cast member Kate
McKinnon came out as Deenie, an avid soap watcher, who updated host Colin Jost
on the latest happenings on her favorite show while chowing down on leftover
baked salmon. The joke is that, after 40 years, she doesn't really know any of
the characters' names, but the nicknames she gives like "Moustache Man," "Skinny
Minnie," "Big Boobs," & "Sexpot" while describing high-rise fires and people
kept in boat houses perfectly describe the recent plots on Y&R. It's a gag made
even funnier if you're a soap fan yourself and know exactly what she's talking

Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) sued CBS, Sony, and Bell-Phillip Television
Production, Inc. for not rehiring her, because she spoke out about the show's
lack of diversity in front and behind the camera. She says she left in 2007 due
to racial discrimination but then wanted to return to Y&R or join B&B and was
rejected. CBS responded that "after leaving Y&R on her own initiative, Ms.
Rowell has attempted to rewrite that history through lawyers' letters and a
lawsuit that has no merit. We harbor no ill will toward Ms. Rowell, but we will
vigorously defend this case."
UPDATE: On May 13, 2015, CBS & Sony in a motion to dismiss responded that
her claims are patently absurd since she never actually applied for any role on
Y&R or B&B. "This lawsuit is nothing more than a blatant attempt by
Plaintiff to force her way back onto a daytime television soap opera after she
voluntarily resigned from her role in 2007."

FURTHER UPDATE: On November 10, 2015, California District Judge John Kronstadt
dismissed six causes of action against Sony, with leave to amend if Rowell can
prove a more viable retaliation claim.
