First off, Nina is supposedly coming back on a more full time basis for this storyline... so yay!

So there is a rather epic rumor circulating that JD's character on Y&R (Phillip IV) is going to be gay. There is some talk as to that being the reason for the recent appearance of Rafe. Now, personally nothing would be more exciting for me than if that were true, but I would love to hear other opinions. Once again, this is only a rumor... I don't want anyone to get their hopes up/get their hearts broken, depending on how you feel about it.
In sorta kinda related news, if you haven't checked out Poolless' site for a while, I recommend visiting. She recently added some clips from Cooplee circa 2007 that I didn't have in my collection, so perhaps some of you are missing them as well. Just in case you need the link: click here.

Quite honestly I'm conflicted. Yes I think he would be fantastic and it would give him a very intense plot to play, but on the other hand gay characters are generally treated bad on soaps. Also I was kind of hoping for clips that I could use for more Cooplee videos. *laughing* Which granted isn't easy anyway because no one clips Ashlee anymore. *sigh* But overall, *sigh again* I'm conflicted. I'm neither excited nor devastated. Whatever happens I hope John is treated better on young and the restless than he was on Guiding Light. I have my doubts though if he plays a gay man. Especially on Y&R because they focus heavily on business and Victor...two things that bore and annoy. *laughing*

I do have to say the only part of this post that makes me jump in my seat is that Nina is coming back. *grin* I love Nina. Hopefully this time around she'll get a hot guy. *grin* Thank you for the information, Jenny. **hugs**

I've been hearing rumors about Y&R getting a gay character for a while now, so I'm definitely hesitant to believe it, but at the same time I would love it. *laughing* But, like you I just want the best for John. As long as he gets a decent story, I'm going to be thrilled for him.

I'm looking forward to Nina coming back too!

Hi! I am happy that Nina is coming back,i love her too!! The part where JD would play a gay man as his storyline....I have doubts too.I dunno? I hope he does well on Y&R but honestly i don't know if i'll watch? I am being selfish maybe or protective of Cooplee? But i have a lot of trouble seeing him as somebody else than Coop(even if Coop is dead)..Isn't that funny or weird? I wish him the best over there though and i hope Caitlin goes there..hehehe
It might change if i take a peek at him on Y&R and i love him in this character? Than i might follow him there and watch him?
And by the way what is happening with Ashlee? I haven't watch for months now but the other day i was reading spoilers and recaps and they never mentionned Ashlee?

Thanks!

Well, this is just a big rumor at this point. No matter what it might seem a bit weird seeing him on another show, but I'm sure John will be able to capture his new character convincingly. I don't watch GL anymore, so I have no clue what is going on with Ashlee, but I don't believe they are giving her a storyline.

I watch Y&R and I am thrilled about Nina coming back. She's such a crazy and wild girl and I love her antics and the first day back she puts Jill in the closet! This could definitely lead to some good times this summer and that show can use some pepping up. About John, I'm not sure what to think. If I were an actor I would hate to be stereotyped but in all honesty, you do become that way sometimes. I have nothing against a gay couple on the show, it's just that we've become accustomed to John as the romantic hero saving the girl. Just imagine Van leaving ATWT and taking on a straight role. Van in bed with a girl? It would feel like he was cheating on Noah. I know he's an actor and all about developing other characters, but let's face it, a part of the actor's personality always shines through. If "Philip" were to be in a scene with another guy and he rubbed his eyebrow in frustration, that would definitely say Coop to me and I wouldn't like it. I'll have to see John's new character before I can decide.

In fairness, Jill totally deserved it! *grin* I love Nina too. I remember watching it years ago with my mom and she was always a fan of Nina. I know John will do an amazing job with whatever storyline they give him. The rumors about Y&R getting a gay character have been going around since they recast Noah, so this spumor may amount to nothing. It's a whole wait and see thing, but I thought it was interesting so naturally I had to post it. *laughing*

I'm always a little leery to believe any sort of spoiler or rumor. That being said, I don't really care! *laughs* It's no secret that I'm a John fan, so I'm happy that he'll be back on my tv set, straight, gay, I don't really care! The only thing I'll say to temper my enthusiasm, is that whatever his character is, I hope he is treated well and given good storylines to work with.

When I watched Y&R (way, way back), I loved Nina's character and I've just started re-watching the show and hope to see much more of her!

Thanks for the post, Jenny. Hope your day is going well! *hugs*

This is definitely a rumor so I wouldn't lay bets on it or anything. I'm a lot like you, in that I'm just glad to see John back on TV. Of course, my love for gay boys is pretty obvious, so if they made him a gay character I would freakin' love it. *laughing*
