Strange Bedfellows: Y&R

Just when I thought the storylines on Y&R could not get any more bizarre Devon starts fantasizing about Tyra, someone he knew as his aunt until only a few weeks ago when he discovered she had been adopted. This is yet another example of Y&R's recent tendency to allow drama to drive the plot of the show. I also think this latest storyline with Devon was fabricated in a desperate attempt to give Bryton McClure a stronger presence on the show. And if the show plans to keep him on contract he certainly needs a better role than sidekick, something he seems to have been playing for far too long now. I just do not think having Devon fantasize about Tyra is a good place to start expanding his role on the show. I am actually not even sure how Y&R could keep the Tyra character on the show, but write out the Karen character. In my opinion the only thing that made Tyra interesting was her rivalry with Karen, now she is just Neil's boring girlfriend. And unlike Neil's "late" wife Drucilla, I think that Tyra actually makes Neil seem boring. I surrounded the word late in quotes only because I still suspect that Dru will be found alive at some point, at least that is my hope. Perhaps the show could have had Devon look for his biological father only to discover along the way that Dru is still alive somewhere, rather than having him harbor feelings for his pseudo-aunt.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.
