I’ve been watching Y&R and B&B lately – Y&R because it’s on a nice creative upswing and to check out the work of Tom Casiello, and B&B….well, mainly because it’s between Y&R and ATWT.
There are some things I cannot stand about the show (namely, Rick and Steffy). But I always love watching Susan Flannery as Stephanie. A Stephanie day is a day worth watching, since every scene Flannery is in is a master class in acting.
Last week, I watched scenes with Stephanie and Taylor and thought I sensed some subtext……
That subtext? Is that Stephanie and Taylor are about to…..dream big purple dreams, so to speak.
Apparently I’m not the only one; the Sound and Fury blog has also talked about it.
These are excellent blog posts and lay out some really compelling reasons why it would be an interesting story. We’ve heard rumors that Y&R is bringing on a gay character. B&B could do so, too, or have a romance similar to the Otalia story on Guiding Light.
It’s always been my understanding, though, that B&B’s vast international audience made that subject matter taboo. (Because please, we all know the fashion world would be filled with larger-than-life gay characters in real life!)
