Hey Y&R fans, every second Saturday TV Banter discusses the latest happenings and provides commentary on your favourite daytime drama. Note to U.S. readers - SPOILER ALERT: Here in Canada, I watch the show on Global TV which is one episode ahead of CBS. I will inevitably refer to incidents you haven't seen yet. Read at your own risk. If you are the curious type, though, you may prefer to discover some things in advance.
Princess Victoria has been behaving more like her daddy every day. She supports Newman's involvement in the Chancellor Park development and defended it to Nick. All that matters to her is business. It seems that the power went to head when she became Chief Operating Officer (C.O.O.) of Newman enterprises.
Ashley is another character who has been given more power. She has been trying to solidify her control at Jabot ever since she became temporary CEO of Jabot. She would like her position to be permanent, so there is going to be quite a power struggle between her and Jack. Ashley is already demanding that Billy, Abby and Traci take sides. Traci, as usual is trying to calm things down . She should win the Nobel Peace Prize.
Jack made an extremely hurtful remark to Ashley. He said that John Abbott was his father, but not her's. That was an incredibly cruel remark for Jack to make. Where Ashley was concerned, it stung. Her paternity is a very sensitive subject for her. She adored John Abbott.
If you have any comments on Y&R, please email them to me with "Viewer Forum" in the subject line. I will be happy to publish your comments and reply to them You do not have to use your real name.
Fifi also commented on how quickly Dina's Alzheimer's has progressed. At first, it was happening much more slowly.

Kate Linder, as usual, was the driving support for the charity tea. Kate likes to tell fans that if they want changes on the show or if they have suggestions to let CBS know. She says that if enough people ask for something, the network will listen. For example, many viewers wanted Esther's daughter to show up. That's why Chloe appeared in Genoa City.
I really think that another female actor from Y&R was needed at this year's tea. However, I guess it couldn't be arranged. I hope that won't happen next year.
