Oh. My. God. GENIE FRANCIS is going to The Young and The Restless!!



Entertainment Weekly online  is reporting that Genie Francis is going to The Young and The Restless in May!! 
Francis will play the mother of Ethan Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard).I am speechless... this was the time for her to return to GH and she's going to Y&R to play the character that Tristan Rogers' plays..EX??!! WHAT!! Wow, just wow. 


Congrats to Genie, she so deserves a great part. 
THIS IS NOT AN APRIL FOOL'S JOKE....swear. We Love Soaps has it up as well.

GH should be ashamed. Y&R, bravo.

This is such great news since GH doesn't want her apparently. I'll be watching Y&R now. GH can rot with their crap writing and hatred of their viewers and a lot of their actors.

Don't forget that hot mess today would have been even worse if they'd had their way fully because Liz would have been shipped off to the loony bin never to be seen again about today or tomorrow. I hope Y&R brings on some more GH actors who have little or no story line and or so wasted.

Good for Genie Francis. She's been saying for months now she won't return to play Laura as a victim or just to facilitate Luke's story anymore. GH was ignoring a perfect opportunity to bring Laura back under such circumstances (Laura would be more there for Lucky and Liz and Lulu than Luke). The show has long ignored her willingness to return to the show if they would accomidate her family life/business the way they accomidate Tony Geary's vacations. So she took a job to work opposite a magnificient actor like Tristan Rogers. Good for her.

And the power of Genie...the news breaks and she's trending worldwide in minutes. Way to miss the boat GH/ABC. Way to miss the boat.

Yes, she is trending, she needs to get on Twitter!! LOL..
I am still so sad, this is so final for me, being a fan of her's since the '70's on GH. We are the same age and I always thought she'd come back. I do love Tracy and Luke but even if she came back-- I don't know.

Awesome move for Y&R. Many, many fans will follow her. This is a total GH fail. Genie would be such an integral part of what is going on with this story that has nothing to do with Luke. Congrats Guza, you have just managed to send many loyal fans over to Y&R.

On the flip side, I am very happy for Genie who deserves this. She should be the Erica Kane of GH, but instead.......she really deserves this and I could not be happier for her!

Awesome for her. It sounds like a real part and she'll get to work with a great cast and two former co-stars Tristan Rogers and Stephen Nichols.

I was so hoping GH would bring her back in the fall though. The 30th anniversary of the wedding is coming up.

Here's hoping Tyler Christopher joins his Mamma AND Papa!

They already did a 25th anniversary of the wedding and they butchered it so bad, I don't know if we could stand a 30th.
Genie on Y&R opposite Tristan ought to be interesting. You know he was back on GH after the monkey pox story when she came out of her coma the first time to get "remarried" to Luke. Thing is - SHE AND SCORPIO DIDN'T HAVE ANY CONVERSATIONS. The only time they were in the same scene is when he was on the back row at the wedding. I was pissed! I mean, they showed him talking with Bobbi at the reception but they couldn't afford to have a small scene for her to HUG him or acknowledge that he too was "back from the dead?" CRAPTASTIC!REALLY CRAPTASTIC considering their history from the 80's. BOO YOU BASTARD GUZA!
At any rate, I hope the Y&R gives her and Tris some good scenes together. I wonder if he has Tweeted about it yet?

Good for Genie! General hospital has treat her like crap for years and ABC to! Gh lose is Y&R gain maybe I sure start watch that soap! sound like a good soap!

This is gonna hurt AMC too if her fans that watch that show and GH bolt to see her on Y&R, which cuts into AMC's first 30mins in most areas of the country.

Bad move ABC

Good for Genie. Maybe she'll be with a show that actually respects her. Just another humiliation for ABC.

Elizabeth said...

that's great! I have been dvr'ing Y&R all week to see if it is as good as i've heard. hopefully it is, and i'll get Genie back on my screen again.

Since ABC seems ready to cancel AMC,now is a good time to swich to Y&R. As I said before,ABC should be bombarded with letters demanding the ouster of Robert Guza. He has totally ruined a soap which was an award winner for so many years. He has a dark and evil mind and should never again be allowed to write for day-time.

kdmask said...

It is also FRONS to blame...Guza doesn't hire people. not that I'd have faith he'd do a Laura story justice. I'm just saying, it's not him it's ABC

LindaV said...

Boy, they blew it big time. Good for Genie - she must have gotten tired of waiting for GH to come calling. I am really sad, too, that they couldn't write a decent story for Nik yet they have no problem continuing the Lisa crap and way too much Mabby.

Hope said...

Y&R here I come!

david said...

I vowed I dont have time for another soap. But I am going to give Y&R a try simply because of this. I guess I Need to start doing some research to get familiar with the characters...

Love4Dogs said...

Yay! I am very happy. I love Y&R. Very sad to say Y&R is now for me what GH used to be.

lisa said...

Karen, I am very happy for Genie. They only want her to play a feeble minded victim on GH. Genie is done with playing the victim and I am done watching the women be made victims on GH. I now wish Rebecca Herbst would also leave and act on Y&R. With the current writing RH will never be given a good story and a new love interest. She will be portrayed as weak and breaking down instead of showcasing a woman's inner strength.The only woman they always say is strong is Carly but she isn't. She is selfish and saps the life out of jason to get through. Sadly, the scoops show that they are going to continue to recycle old stories ( triangle ). I read better fan-fiction stories for GH online.

I think it's only fair that "Robert" and "Laura" have a son together since Luke and Holly did. Hee, hee.
