Days of Our Lives may have earned some Daytime Emmy love in the Lead Actress and Supporting Actress categories, but not among the Lead Actor or Supporting Actor categories. General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), The Bold and the Beautiful’s Scott Clifton (Liam) and The Young and the Restless’ Jeff Branson (ex-Ronan) and Billy Miller (Billy) all received nods.
The Young and the Restless’ Summer Newman (Hunter Haley King) is definitely starting to become her mother Phyllis' (Michelle Stafford) child. The teen schemer is still blazing mad about the affair her mother carried on with FBI Agent Ronan Malloy. (Jeff Branson) She decides it's time he gets some payback by way of his mentee, Jamie (Daniel Polo).
TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan spoke with head writer Josh Griffith and got the skinny on Summer's quest take down Ronan.
Summer is in such a screwed-up state over the divorce of her parents that she misguidedly decides to hurt Ronan by hurting this kid he cares so much about," says the soap's Emmy-winning head writer Josh Griffith. "She uses her phony online persona called 'Brittni' to form a relationship with Jamie and draw information out of him — deeply personal and hurtful stuff about his past troubles with the law — and then she blasts it out to everyone on FacePlace. She'll also be using texting and instant messaging to disparage him further.
After discovering Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) sexing up Ronan (Jeff Branson), Summer (Lindsay Bushman) went runningall the way to Daddy Nick (Joshua Morrow). At first Nick didn’t believe Summer. He kept insisting her mom's affair was just for show.When his daughter revealed she’d seen the two together, a furious Nick galloped off to Red.
When Nick arrived to call Phyllis out, she countered by screaming about how alone she was. Ronan, unlike her husband, had been there for her. Where in the wedding vows does it say "I promise to be totally understanding when it comes out that my wife tried to kill two people 20 years ago"?
Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) put a dimmer on their afterglow, by telling a still-sweating Ronan (Jeff Branson) their tryst was a mistake on today's episode of The Young and the Restless. Later, they questioned Kevin (Greg Rikaart) about the possibility of Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) blabbing their secrets. Meanwhile, Cricket (Lauralee Bell) and Michael (Christian LeBlanc) were putting things together, regarding the night Kev helped Red move her dead, horny, ex-shrink's body.
A desperate Sharon (Sharon Case) pleaded with Avery (Jessica Collins) to get Victor (Eric Braeden) to drop the charges. Little did Sharon know, Tucker (Stephen Nichols) was offering up Beauty of Nature in exchange for her freedom. READ MORE
