Seen in: Young and the Restless
Portrayed by: Julia Pace Mitchell
Role: No-nonsense business executive, wife, mother
Verdict: Pass, and I loathe soap operas with a passion.
Think about it; we've got a dark chocolate sistah playing a successful woman with a loving husband on an American soap opera. I mean there's kissing and everything. In addition to the courtship, they even show the wedding.
Apparently there was drama with another dude as well.
God, I hate soap operas...despite my love for Julia Pace Mitchell. And while she does have a lot of devoted fans and supporters, she's naturally drawn her fair share of haters who are always saying her relationships are unrealistic (read: she's Black, and darkly so, therefore undesirable), she's too "curvy" (read: fat), and I've actually read a fan say her love scenes made them feel sick.
Nevertheless, I adore this woman. She's beautiful; her smile's as bright as the sun. She's got her career going (even when as she got thicker), in spite of some serious odds (she was actually shocked to get a role on Y&R), and she's happily married in real life to a prominent businessman. Haters can feel free to hate on this woman because she's got her money, she's got her fans, and she's happy as clams.
