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.

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." Read the document here!
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. Read more here!

Phyllis Exposes Billy!
Billy knows he’s playing with relationship fire by using Phyllis’s laptop to gain access to Jabot files. While the two are having a romantic dinner at Top of the Tower, Victoria arrives and asks to discuss her upcoming appearance on THE HILARY HOUR with Billy. Phyllis excuses herself, then calls Jack about Victoria’s interview to promote Brash & Sassy. Jack decides they need Jabot’s men’s line products in stores ASAP, and orders Phyllis to make it happen. Meanwhile, Billy worries that Victoria’s appearance is premature because their own line may not be ready to launch. Billy wishes Victoria good luck with the interview, then leaves with Phyllis. Once they’re home, Phyllis receives a text from Lauren. Phyllis sets her phone down, then heads into the kitchen to get champagne. When another text arrives, Billy can’t help himself and reads an urgent message from Jack about the men’s line, but he doesn’t know that he’s being set up by Phyllis. Phyllis returns and catches Billy with her phone. He admits to reading Jack’s text and feigns surprise that Jabot is bringing back the men’s line. Phyllis tells Billy that she knows he helped himself to her computer.

Undaunted, Jack hits Phyllis with a barrage of facts that back up his story. At Brash & Sassy, Victoria thanks Billy for the company’s bright outlook because of the risks he took to procure Jabot’s secrets.

Knowing this means accessing the competition’s server, Victoria cautions her ex to be careful. Later, Billy arrives home, where Phyllis is working on her laptop. Finally, Phyllis announces she’s jumping in the shower and scampers off, leaving her laptop open. Billy hears the water running, but doesn’t know that Phyllis is actually lurking at the top of the stairs.
