So the news has made it that Stephen Nichols will be returning to soaps. Young and the Restless has hired him to replace William Russ, for a character that has yet to air.
I’m so happy for him, given the horrific way he and Mary Beth Evans were treated when they were let go. I think I read MBE is doing a play in LA right now, what I would give to see her on a soap again, being used with her talents.
I remember SN and MBE were the reason I RETURNED to soaps. The reason I came back to Days of our Lives. And the reason I became this saddened, dejected, and cursed individual. Ok, that’s an overstatement but sometimes I regret ever returning. The thrills I got from Steve/Kayla and Chick were outnumbered by the disappointments that their storylines and treatment the actors received. When Darin Brooks became an Emmy winner, I psychologically closed the door on soaps. It’s one thing when Ken and Dena reward that butterball of an actor with horrific written storylines that he hammed his way through, but it’s another issue when the entire industry gives him an award for it.
See? SEE what that show has done for me? I can’t even be happy that SN has found a job where I just pray he gets treated better. All I can do is focus on the past tragedies. Oh how my ditterness has not left me!
