SOAP BYTES: Lexie Gives up The Ghost on Days of Our Lives; Skeletons Pop Out of Phyllis’ Closet on The Young and the Restless
Y&R BYTES: Daniel (Michael Graziadei) demanded to know what Daisy (Yvonne Zima) was talking about regarding his mother. He asked Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) if she tried to run down Paul (Doug Davidson) and Christine (Lauralee Bell). When in doubt deny, deny, deny; that is exactly what Phyllis did. Her past was coming back to haunt her, and she desperately wanted to stuff the skeletons back in the closet.
When Daniel pressed his mother, Phyllis finally admitted she rented the car Daisy was referring to. Even though she admitted hitting them, she maintained what happened was different from the eye witness accounts reported. As Phyllis recounted her version, we were treated to flashbacks of Paul and Cricket canoodling beneath the stars and later being hit by the car.
It really sucked to watch Daisy play high and mighty, telling Phyllis and Daniel as long as she’s part of their family they don’t have to worry about the secret getting out.
I am having a really hard time adjusting to Jennifer Landon as Heather. I didn’t even recognize her at first with the red hair. However, I don’t think it’s her appearance. Landon is a fantastic actress, but in the role she feels out of place. I’m beginning to wonder if the role of Heather is cursed? Sometimes a show needs to throw in the towel and get rid of certain characters for good. Heather is one such character.
Tucker (Stephen Nichols) hit on Harmony (Debbi Morgan), but Harmony didn’t want to make another mistake. She did say she enjoyed the night they shared.
Genevieve (Genie Francis) scrambled to come up with cash, after discovering she’s been locked out of her secret account. I don’t feel an ounce of sympathy for her. I’m sure I should, but I don’t.
