    Never liked Diane but really liked Maura West…too bad they gave her the Diane role. Diane does not stay long in GC

    I feel getting rid of Maura is a mistake. she plays this very well. At times i do my own kind of writing of the show…she makes y&R interesting to fire her was a mistake..also, to change the lily factor ( you need to have him fall for lilly and change his mean ways) this will bring more he can bring down the father!!!!. what would really bring the ratings up really high would be to get drucella back into lillys world now…… also to let billy go is another mistake….hippie linda
