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,
with a sweet Instagram shot
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.

*Switched At Birth* Sharon Learns She’s Not Sully’s Mother - Sage Is!
The moment of truth finally arrives for Sharon this week when she finally
discovers that Sully is not her son, after all. Working on a hunch, Sharon
decides to visit Patty. Sharon is relieved when Ms. Williams seems lucid. Sharon
asks if Patty can help with interpreting Sharon’s confusing dreams. Patty
doesn’t answer Sharon’s question directly, but asks if Sharon dreams about the
baby. Before spilling anything else, Patty gripes that Sharon wasn’t very nice
to her at Fairview. Sharon apologizes and explains that she was dealing with
problems of her own at the time. Patty seems very clear headed when she tells
Sharon that she was never pregnant. A shocked Sharon refuses to believe Patty’s
claim. When Sharon demands to know why Patty would say such a thing, Patty
starts to prattle on about cowbirds. Sharon returns home but can’t shake the
terrifying thoughts that are now banging around in her head. When Sage
unexpectedly shows up with more information about Nurse Stephens, Sharon makes a

Sage is understandably confused by Sharon’s outburst and decides to continue the
investigation without Sharon. Sharon is starting to worry about where this could
take her. Sharon decides to get out of the house and takes Sully to Crimson
Lights. There, she runs into Mariah and Sage. After Sage leaves, Mariah
discloses to Sharon that Sage asked Kevin to use his computer skills to find out
more about Nurse Stephens. Mariah is taken aback when Sharon strongly requests
that Kevin not help Sage. Sage, meanwhile, finds Sully’s pacifier on the ground
outside of the coffeehouse and goes back inside to return it to Sharon. She
spies Mariah and Sharon engaged in an intense conversation and eavesdrops
unnoticed. Sharon assures Mariah that the investigation into Dr. Anderson was a
dead end. Mariah is relieved to hear that Sharon isn’t going behind Dylan’s back
anymore and comments that it was a miracle for Sharon to get pregnant so quickly
after her miscarriage without Dylan finding out. Needless to say, that admission
is a big piece of news for Sage. Sharon then picks up the water glass that Sage
was drinking from, carefully wraps it and puts it in the diaper bag. She
contacts the lab and heads over for a DNA test on the glass and hair from
Sully’s brush. Sharon returns to the hospital a few hours later and is spotted
by Nurse Stephens. Angela keeps her eye on Sharon as she receives an envelope
from the lab tech, who says to call with any questions about the DNA results. A
panicked Angela realizes that Sharon is putting the pieces together. Later,
Sharon sits on a park bench, staring at the envelope. When she finally opens it,
it’s the moment of truth. Sharon’s horrified and devastated by the results. As
Sharon reels from shock, Nick suddenly shows up and asks if his ex is okay. Will
Sharon reveal what she has just found out - or keep quiet?
Jack Fires Billy! Jack arrives unannounced at the Chancellor mansion,
only to find Phyllis and Billy in yet another compromising situation. This time,
Billy is bare-chested while Phyllis is wearing his shirt. Phyllis and Billy
laugh off the incident but Jack doesn’t find any of it funny and announces that
his little brother is fired! Jack explains he agreed to share Pass Key profits,
as well as Victoria’s demand to cut Billy loose, in order to keep everyone out
of jail for lying in their depositions. Phyllis realizes that Summer spilled the
beans to Victoria! However, Billy is not as understanding about his ex-wife’s
actions. Billy rages at Jack for caving in to Victoria’s will. Billy then orders
