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

Michelle Stafford (Nina, GH; ex-Phyllis, Y&R) announced the birth of her
second child, son Jameson Jones Lee Stafford, on Saturday, October 24, 2015,

of the baby with his big sister, Natalia, 5.
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.

gaze lovingly at the dedication plaque with Katherine’s name. Jill is sans Colin
this visit, but that doesn’t mean their tempestuous marriage is in trouble.Cane
praises Jill for donating generously to the Abbott-Winters Foundation. Jill

determined to straighten this out. And that’s not all Jill has on her agenda.

autopsy. When Dylan fills in Chelsea and Adam about Constance, he asks if Adam
has anything to add to his statement before the forensic results come in. Adam
says no, insisting there was no wrongdoing on his part. Adam suggests that
Victor somehow altered Sage’s diary. Determined to prove his theory, Adam later
confronts Luca and accuses Santori of helping Victor with the setup. As an
unnerved Luca claims ignorance, Dylan shows up and arrests Adam for murder.

are safe from his dad’s influence. Chelsea is suddenly hit with an idea and
retrieves two wedding rings, explaining that she kept them after Adam was
presumed dead. Chelsea suggests they wear the rings as physical proof of their
solidarity. Adam is touched by the inscription - “Now and forever” - Chelsea had
engraved on the rings, but she gets nervous that her visit with Victor may have

him again. Chelsea enthusiastically agrees and a quick, romantic renewal
ceremony is thrown together, which strengthens their bond.

late wife’s things. Among the contents, Nick comes across Sage’s journal and
shares that he saw his wife write in it frequently. Sharon tenses up when she

the aftermath of Sage’s tragic demise, Sharon struggles to keep the secret that
Nick’s late wife is the biological mother of Sharon’s son, Sully (really the
“late” Christian). Will she crack and spill the beans to Nick? One thing Sharon
is not dealing with is any feelings of responsibility for the chain of events
that led to Sage’s fatal car crash. The tragic turn of events does reunite Nick
and Sharon in his grief and bring them closer. And as Sharon is trying to
convince herself that she is doing the right thing, Nick shows up at her house
with Faith in tow because he wants to cut their father/daughter time short. It
is tough for Nick to be around anyone right now, including Faith. Once Faith is
out of the room, Sharon suggests that her ex spend time with Sully. However,
Nick does not think Sully can help him at the moment. Mariah unexpectedly shows
up and upon seeing Nick, gives him a hug, which is very out of character for
her. Sharon reiterates her suggestion that Nick spend more time with Sully. He
turns down the offer again, but understands why Sharon is so concerned for him.
After Nick leaves, a suspicious Mariah asks why her mom was being so assertive
with him. Sharon explains that Sage had a connection with Sully and it made her
feel better to be around him, so it might work for Nick too. Meanwhile, Nick
shows up at Newman Enterprises and walks in on Billy and Victoria engaging in
another heated argument. Nick advises them both to find a way back to each other
before it is too late. Billy departs and Victoria urges her brother to take more
time off to deal with the death of his wife. Nick explodes at the well-meaning
advice. Nick then laments that he feels like crawling into the grave with Sage.
