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.

informs Dr. Neville that another specialist has been called and Simon’s services

Hilary and he’s been working tirelessly to fine-tune his treatment in order to

*Cheating Hearts* Jack Discovers That Phyllis Has Been Lying To Him -
But Will The Road Lead Him To Billy? Phyllis’s months-long affair with her
brother-in-law, Billy, has taken an emotional toll on the redhead. The fact that
Jack has been loving and patient with his wife hasn’t made it easier on Phyllis.
Even now, when Phyllis has asked for a break from their marriage, Jack isn’t
thinking the worst. But Jack finally gets a clue that something is amiss with
Phyllis when his assistant brings him the monthly expense reports to sign off
on. While scanning the entries, Jack notices that Phyllis’s use of the company
jet for her recent trip to Canda (really, her weekend hook-up with Billy) isn’t
listed. To get to the bottom of what he feels is simply a bookkeeping error, or
perhaps a last-minute change to the flight plan, Jack calls the company pilot,
who reports that Phyllis never used the jet on those days. As Jack mulls his
recent discovery, Ashley enters and asks her brother if he and Phyllis have
gotten their marriage back on track. When he doesn’t respond, Ashley asks what’s
wrong. Jack, at last, vocalizes his first real suspicion about his wife. Jack
then shows his sister the report that has no record of the flight that Phyllis
supposedly took to Canada. Ashley also suggests an accounting error was made,
but Jack informs her that he already talked to the pilot, who confirmed that
Phyllis never took the trip. As Jack begins to stew, Ashley jokes that maybe his
wife is cheating on him, but he isn’t laughing. When Ashley sees how upset her
brother is, she assures Jack that Phyllis hasn’t been unfaithful. He’s far from
appeased. Jack suddenly shakes it off, declaring how absurd it all sounds. He
reiterates his trust in Phyllis, and Ashley urges Jack not to let his
imagination run wild. However, doubt creep into Jack’s mind again when he
wonders why Phyllis moved out. Ashley grabs Jack’s shoulders and instructs him
to keep quiet. When Jack seems unsure about how to handle the situation, Ashley
pushes him not to bring this up with Phyllis. Phyllis asks what he shouldn’t
bring up as she enters the office. Will Jack speak up or heed his sister’s
The Hunt For Victor’s Accomplice! Adam’s only chance to beat the
trumped-up murder charges hinges on finding the mystery woman who’s been
carrying out Victor’s nefarious orders. Chelsea has recruited Kevin and his
hacking skills, but even he is having trouble uncovering the woman’s identity.
Chelsea then suggests that Kevin try to find out why this person is colluding
with Victor. Adam returns from visiting his father in prison and tells Kevin and
Chelsea that Victor said the real pages that belong in Sage’s diary are still
out there, which, if found, can prove the pages used in evidence are forgeries.
Despite Victor’s seemingly helpful advice, Adam is still convinced that Dad is
behind the set-up. Later at the coffeehouse, Kevin is checking security cameras
around Genoa City on his laptop, but the mystery woman’s face is hidden in the
footage he finds. Natalie shows up and Kevin explains that his target seems to
know the location of every camera. Natalie offers to help, but isn’t she still a
possible suspect? Dylan enters and asks Kevin to trace a call from an anonymous
tip that someone phoned in to McAvoy about Adam’s case.
