Our Performer of the Week is The Young and the Restless’ Sharon Case!
Sharon Case is AMAZING! She is one of those actresses that when she cries, we all cry! Case did a beautiful job of portraying the roller coaster of emotions Sharon felt as she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It broke our hearts to watch her tell her loved ones what she has been dealing with over the last couple of weeks, but seeing her family gather around her pieced them back together again! This is just the beginning of this storyline and Sharon is already knocking it out of the park!
Our Honorable Mentions are:
The Bold and the Beautiful’s Rena Sofer (Quinn)
Rena Sofer got to say the line of the week when told Brooke “B****, you should have learned that from me!” And that slap! We were HOWLING! Quinn vs Brooke was just so good to watch, and we have a feeling this fight is just beginning!
General Hospital’s Chloe Lanier (Nelle)
Whether you love or hate Nelle, there is no denying that Chloe Lanier plays a fantastic villain! She provided us with probably the soapiest moment of the week when she stood up from the crowd at Shiloh’s memorial and removed the big veil to reveal herself. Add in the fact that she was married to Shiloh, now has a claim to ELQ stock, is delusional enough to think she will be able to have the life she wants, and we’ve got the set up for an epic battle!
