Marlena I just wanted you to know you may get your wish because she may be leaving the show. She originally was only suppose to come on for a short time as she was involved with another MTV show and MTV announced the drama "Finding Carter" was a go and ordered 12 episodes. "Finding Carter" is a coming of age drama from executive producer Terri Minsky (Sex and the City) and based on an original script by Emily Silver (Bones). Watros plays one of the leading characters in the new television show. I'm sure you won't be watching since you have seen her in other projects and doesn't sound like she was any better on those shows. The only thing I saw her in before was GL where she played a scheming villainess - Annie Dutton against Reva Shayne. It was a long time ago and she was good in that role. When she came on Y&R I wondered what had happened to her because I thought she was horrible from the first time I saw her on screen.I've seen Cynthia Watros on other shows... daytime soaps as well as nighttime dramas... and she's never ever irritated me so much. I thought it was just the crappy writing of the Kelly character but now that Kelly is branching out from the parents-of-deceased-children support group to being more involved with other central characters (Lilly, Jack, etc) I've decided CW is just horrrrrrrrible. I mean, all of her scenes with Lilly and with Ben and worst of all with Jack at the gala... agreeing with momrek06, just so fake!!!!!!! Please - get this woman off my screen. I cannot stand anything about Kelly... and CW's portrayal is gawd-awful, nails-on-the-chalkboard grating to my nerves.
Still not watching the show, and after reading your recap which BTW was great - I still see no reason to start up again.
