Long live #BettyWhite - and she has. The ever-popular nonagenerian continues to trend on Twitter, initially leading those who saw she was trending to worry that perhaps she was ailing. From time to time, this has happened, causing all of us to race to see whether or not she was all right, and certainly, our collective concerns about the television icon's ongoing good health have not been made any better due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Not to worry, though; White is trending because she turns 99 on January 17, 2021.

A few weeks ago, I got into a debate with my 14-year-old niece about why my generation of Disney Channel was better than hers. My argument, besides just having better quality shows, was that the current generation lacks the entertainment of the drama that came with the Disney stars like mine did. I argued that the more recent Disney stars couldn't muster up a lover's quarrel like Joe Jonas and AJ Michalka, which resulted in the iconic "Potential Breakup Song" by Aly & AJ. Nor could this new generation provide a love triangle that could live up to the Miley Cyrus, Nick Jonas, and Selena Gomez triangle of the late 2000s. A few days ago, I was proven wrong however.
The Young and the Restless has a rich history that was barely tapped into during the throw back episodes while the show was on hiatus. There are memorable characters who played a part in setting the stage for much of what is enjoyed by fans today who were not showcased. One such person was Cash Cashman who was portrayed by the late John Gibson.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane and refresh ourselves with and or introduce this iconic character to new generations and explore his role in Genoa City history.

Ever since Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, the rumors have been flying that she destroyed his relationship with his older brother. When the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to the United States Prince William and Prince Harry were said to be estranged. COVID-19 has caused the sons of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana to not be able to see each other in person but now the siblings are said to have begun mending fences during the holidays. Perhaps now that some time and distance have come into play, it may be a little easier for all concerned.

The CBS daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful has a number of characters who disappear with little fanfare. One day they are on the screen and then months later viewers realize they have not been seen in a while. There is never an explanation, you simply see them one day and not the next. One such character is Allison Montgomery who was portrayed by real-life Princess, Theodora of Greece and Denmark. Known by her stage name, Theodora Greece, the British actress is a member of the Greek royal family and also of Danish royalty. She was born on 9 June 1983 the fourth of five children and the youngest daughter of deposed Greek king Constantine II and Princess Anne-Marie of Denmark.
Everyone loves celebrity sightings. I understand why. The feeling you get is similar to when you run into someone from school that you haven’t seen in years. That rush of recognition and excitement over a familiar face. That “hey I know you!” in the middle of a crowd of strangers. Then you go home and tell your friends who you ran into that day. In a way, a celebrity of Generation X (or any other generation really but I’m speaking for me…) are friends who have been a part of your life via some form of media.
