February 11th - March 14th
So SO sorry to have waited so long! What with boxing up all our stuff, living in a hotel, and double moving, Y&R mistakenly fell off my list of priorities. But I'm back in the saddle (and unfortunately, the horse didn't ride very far).
Women were getting the beat-down all month! Anytime a chick was like, "Oh yeah, I have a contribution to this important business decision," or "Like, I can be a model AND a social life!" the men were there to crap all over them. Seriously, name me one chick OTHER than Mrs. C, who isn't completely constrained by a dude! (Meaning the door to lesbianism may have opened...).
Everything started when Victor received a call that Hope was dying of pancreatic cancer - wherein he immediately jetted off to the far to be at her bedside. Donning a blonde-do and a designer scarf, Hope explained that her condition was terminal and that her dying wish was for Victor and Victor Jr to become best-buds...which seemed fine and dandy until JR showed up and turned out to be a complete asshole. Regardless, Hope kicked the bucket and Victor JR very reluctantly agreed to take a position at Newman Enterprises. Apparently, Jr has been living with his GF in NY working his way up. This storyline seemed believable enough - THAT IS UNLESS YOU COMPLETELY FORGOT THAT THE WHOLE REASON VICTOR AND NICKI SPLIT WAS BECAUSE HE SKIPPED TOWN TO SEARCH FOR VICTOR JR IN SRI LANKA. Come on! Meanwhile, Victoria's friend, Sabrina, a hot brunette with a sexy European accent, has been in town to visit Victoria and flirt with Victor. However, just when things were heating up, she is supposedly leaving town - SUPPOSEDLY.
Anyway, Jr's transition into Genoa City has been anything but smooth, and he continuously hits on a confused Phyllis, makes massive business decisions without Victoria's OK, and just seems generally arrogant and pushy...like a frat boy who just served up a cooler full of jungle juice on a friday night: he knows he's gonna take advantage of at least one person, puke all over the couch, pass out on the lawn, and be congratulated on his antics the next day. Oh yeah - and he doesn't go by JR; he goes by Adam. JSYK.
Jack, Phyllis, and Nicholas have also decided to embark on creating a new fashion magazine, aptly titled, "RESTLESS FASHION" wherein Daniel has been given a photography job and Amber has been hired as the kooky receptionist. Nicholas spends his time whining about Daddy's money, Phyllis is decorating their warehouse space and consulting Balki from Perfect Strangers for advice, and Jack and Sharon seem relatively vegetative in the whole process. I'm sure it will be a hit.
Meanwhile, Lily's new career as the "Fresh Face of Jabot" model has also been a bit bumpy, particularly since her bitchy assistant Chloe has been nothing but negative about her weight, attitude, and fashion sense. All this on top of the fact that Neil is also playing the negative nelly, complaining that the Lilster has been neglecting school and family and Cane seems to agree. HEL-LO! She's a model now! She doesn't NEED school or family!
And on the romance front, after spending a few awkward days after their one night stand, Amber and Daniel again sealed the deal and seem to have become "fuck buddies." Amber was happier than a clam as her stud helped her move into her newly rented penthouse, until Daniel came across the bag of "supposedly burned" cash that they discovered on Plum months ago. Amber cried and pleaded, and when that didn't work, she nailed him on top of the money (boys are SOOOO easy). Unfortunately, even though the duo could live quite comfortably together with the cash, Daniel felt the need for a little bromance and spilled everything to Kevin, whose seemed a little jealously gay. This leaves the money's fate hanging in the balance as they all argue over the best course of action...ummm... I THINK THEY SHOULD SEND IT TO ME...but as usual, no one listens to me.
Gloria has had a tenuous time holding onto Jeffery lately as he pushes and pushes for her to "consummate" the marriage. After realizing that her options were wearing thin, Gloria has decided to convince J-Man that she really does love him. But I've got to tell you - there I am eating a bowl of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese when all of a sudden Jeffery and Gloria are making out (and I'm talking HEAVY PETTING) - and without any warning my mouth suddenly filled with half digested mac n cheese. It was not pleasant. Either way, Jack and Sharon have teamed up with Jeffery to convince old Gloria that John's ghost is haunting the mansion, hoping that she will finally give up on her half of the estate. How MANY times do I have to relate Y&R to Scooby-Do? Maybe they should do a crossover show.
In less important news: Heather has been put on probation or something, where she's probably going to lose her job; Brad paid good money for dirt on David Chow; Nicki and Jill are butting heads like angry goats over the new decisions being made at Jabot; and Nicholas secretly pines over his lost relationship with his father (which is ultimately bitter since JR has been introduced).
What did I forget? My brain can only handle small bits at a time! I do think it's safe to say that Sabrina and Victor are going to be a lascivious new couple, whereas I think Cane and Lily might hit the rocks.
AND OMG I just read in my Soap Opera Digest that Dru is potentially coming back before the end of the year. Uh-oh.
