Ever since she and Kyle, then she and Theo broke up on The Young and the Restless, Lola has been at loose ends.
The Young and the Restless Polling
She invited Elena (Brytni Sarpy) to move in with her, so now she has a friend. That’s nice. But what does Lola (Sasha Calle) need most these days? What almost 3,000 fans told us they’d like to see:
Tell Me a Story For Lola
It was a close one, but a majority 55% of the audience thinks Lola needs a story. Any story. How are things at the restaurant? How are things with her siblings? Is she dating anybody new? Did she get a good divorce settlement from Kyle (Michael Mealor)? We’ll take anything at this point. Lola is a viable young leading lady. But she needs to do something to stay that way!
There is only one type of story on a soap opera, 43% of you remind, and that’s a romantic one. If Lola is to remain viable, then she needs a love interest. OK, Kyle is in a dysfunctional mess with Summer (Hunter King). And Theo (Tyler Johnson) is on his way out. So forget about them.
Let’s look around for somebody new. How about… a returned Noah Newman (Robert Adamson)? Fen Baldwin? An aged Johnny Abbott? Charlie Ashby? Reed Helstrom? We’ve got legacy characters to spare. But we need them back in Genoa City, first!
The Hate You Give
Only 2% suggested a frenemy. Summer is the obvious choice, but Lola has got to be so over her by now. How about Sally (Courtney Hope)? She’s new in town. And she has big dreams. If the fashion and cosmetic gig doesn’t work out, maybe she’ll want to get into the food business. She and Lola can join forces… while also competing. Could be just the energy and story both these characters need! The Young and the Restless (YR) airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for airtimes.
