It has been a very long time since I have fallen for a new soap character. There was a time it didn't take me long to connect to a new face on the canvas, but these are hard times for soap fans. New characters are introduced so quickly that you never really get a chance to know them.

I have a new favorite character now and I couldn't be happier. Kitty, much like Madonna and Cher before her, doesn't need a last name. I think she may be playing herself. All I know is that she is the best character to hit Genoa City in years. In her interactions with Mary Jane, she can't help but steal the scenes. What's interesting is that most new actresses to soaps would need to adjust to the fast pace of daytime. True, she doesn't have any dialouge, but her facial expressions, her eyes and her beauty are rare for daytime. Kitty is also extremely loyal. In scenes with Mary Jane, she sits there and listens. She never turns on MJ or tells her that she is wrong. We all need someone like that in our life who will love us unconditionally.

What pains me though is how she is treated by Mary Jane. Hidden from the world, Kitty hasn't had a chance to make friends. Eventually, every successful soap character deserves a romance. With the animosity between Victor and Mary Jane it would be soap opera magic if Kitty eventually found true love with Victor's dog, Zapato. Talk about a Romeo and Juliet type relationship! Can you imagine what lengths Victor would do to keep the two apart? And Kitty has already held her own in a scene with Eric Braeden. I am currently composing their theme song and hoping to send it to Y&R. It's a labor of love though and I'm not expecting to make any money from it.

Finally, I am worried about the length of Kitty's contract. I am sure her agent is begging her to leave soaps for the movies. It would break my heart if she left. If she has to leave Y&R at some point, I would like her to remain in the suds business. Crystal Hunt just isn't working as Stacy on ONE LIFE TO LIVE and Kitty could do wonders in that role. Think about all of the cat fights between Kitty and Farah Fath's Gigi!

Y&R is the show to watch these days and I would like to thank Kitty for that. I am trying to contact her publicist for an interview but have yet to receive a response. If anyone reading this knows how I can reach her, I would really appreciate it. She is on the brink of superstardom and I would be thrilled to be the first one to interview her.

Thanks, Kitty, for all you are bringing to the show!


  1. Beautiful post, Mikey! Kitty certainly seems to be emoting more than several of the younger actors on various shows this summer.

  2. Thanks Damon! I would also like to see Kitty take over the role of Jason at GH if Burton ever leaves. I'm confident she could pull it off :)

  3. I have to agree with all of this. Kitty needs to win some scene stealing award. And I'm sure she's done enough to make TV Guide Canada's Soap Power list this year as well! :)

  4. Kitty is awesome!
    Best was when Victor found her and did his "WTF?" look, and Kitty was just her usual calm cool collected self.

  5. I was mad at Mary Jane for yelling at Kitty for her missing pills.
