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!

Hilary Is Fired!

Being your wifeís boss is a tough job, which Devon learns firsthand when heís forced to fire Hilary from GC BUZZ. Hilaryís pink slip is set in motion when she edits Dylanís interview to make it as salacious as possible. She deletes his quotes supporting Sharon and discussing her difficulties with bipolar disorder, as well as his praise about how far sheís come. Devon walks in on Mariah railing at Hilary for twisting the entire interview and refusing to put Dylanís deleted quotes back in. Later, Hilary scrolls through her phone, reading the social media praise for her latest episode. Devon points out that the audience never saw Dylanís original interview, so they donít know that they were manipulated. Hilary calls out Devon on his hypocrisy, noting that Mariah was just as guilty of manipulation by trying to sway the audience in Dylanís favor. And there was no way she was going to let that traitor use her again. A furious Devon orders his wife to cut out any hint of scandal in the next episode of GC BUZZ. When Hilary balks, refusing to decimate her show, Devon announces that itís not her show anymore and fires her.

Despite the restraining order Nick filed against them, he relents, and the group shares a nice moment comforting the child they all love. Unfortunately, it doesnít last long, because Nick ends up seeing Dylanís GC BUZZ interview about Christian. Christian is soon given a clean bill of health, and Nick is grateful to move on. Michael alerts Dylan and Sharon that all of this could work in their favor. Nick didnít ask the right questions regarding his son and isnít doing a good job of parenting. If they want to play that up, it could help their case. While Dylan and Sharon mull things over, Nickís made aware of the situation by Leslie and Victor.

After an argument with his wife, Dylan heads to the station and stays all night. When he returns the next morning, Dylan finds his wife eager to make amends. Sharon apologizes for kicking him out of the house, acknowledging that it's been just as painful for him as it's been for her to say goodbye to Christian and have Faith decide to live with Nick. She can't bear to lose Dylan, too, and begs for forgiveness. Dylan responds by pulling Sharon into an embrace. The couple's warm moment is interrupted when Nikki arrives at the door. Needless to say, the tension between Dylan's mom and his wife is thick. Nikki mentions how hard this holiday will be on Dylan and suggests he join the family for dinner at the Newman ranch, noting that Nick will be there with Christian. Sharon immediately realizes that the invitation doesn't include her, which Nikki confirms. An angry Sharon blasts Nikki for asking Dylan to choose his mother over his wife and storms off.

Dylan respectfully declines Nikki's invitation, noting that it would be awkward and tense with Nick and Christian there. After Nikki leaves, Sharon reappears and admits she shouldn't have gone off like that. Nikki just got under her skin, stirring things up just as she and Dylan were making up. She was hoping they could spend Thanksgiving together. To Sharon's surprise, Dylan agrees to do exactly that, and the pair heads over to Chelsea's penthouse to spend the day with Chloe, Mariah and some friends. As fate would have it, Nick arrives at the penthouse with Christian to pick up Chelsea, who agreed to have Thanksgiving with him and his family at the Newman ranch. The trio are about to make their exit, when they open the door to find Sharon and Dylan standing there. Dylan and Sharon want to savor the moment of accidentally running into the little boy they raised from birth, but Nick won't allow it. Nick proceeds to walk out the door without giving Dylan or Sharon so much as a minute with the little boy, stunning both of them. Nick and Christian's abrupt exit leaves Sharon and Dylan overwhelmed. Dylan isn't going to stand for it and it prompts him to make a shocking decision.
