I dunno
Honestly, if Cady does well then I could see this being more than a "temporary" recast.

There’s more to this story. It is said that MR was fired after she supported some non-BLM beliefs online and that’s what nailed her. Rumor also has it that she has either been fired for good or is under suspension.

Exactly! I think they’re trying her out to see how she works out and not have a disaster like Robin Strasser replacing Louise Sorel!!!!!!!

It's actually been kind of disappointing reading the coverage of this story.

"The story" is that Missy Reeves has decided (at this point and time) not to return as the cast resumes filming due to worries about Covid-19, and the show did what everyone has said is a temporary recast. She lives in Tennessee and commutes to work in LA. Being on a plane so much, what with all that's going on, is not the best situation, obviously. She could very well just be waiting until the cases go down, fully intending to come back when both she and the show feels comfortable doing so. Her frequent exposure to large numbers of people during such a commute would add a lot of uncertainty to the heavy-duty precautions being taken at the studio to keep people safe.

But most of the reportage focuses 90% on her personal opinions and thus turns that into "the story". Her expression of those controversial opinions were months, even years ago, but the writers of the stories feel the need to rehash things that are not current, nor relevant to the story. It seems politics have to seep into every.single.thing these days, even when the quasi-political stuff is old news. I wish they could leave certain sectors of our lives free of politics, but maybe that ship has already sailed. The old news not only colors the current reporting, it now pushes the current reporting off the page.

I'm pretty happy about this news. I love Cady. She's a fantastic actress and I think she will be great with Matt Ashford. I think Cady is a much better actor than Missy, so they could hand her some meaty stories for Jennifer. I hope she sticks around.

I liked her "Rosanna Cabot" (ATWT) much better than Dixie (AMC). I dunno, I was just kind of tired of Dixie by the time they killed her off. But killing her off was still a major goof on the writers' part. "Old" Rosanna had the proverbial stick up her butt, but CM's Rosanna was much more "real" (at least for that period in ATWT's run).

I liked her in both roles, but preferred her as Rosanna. She was a much more complex, interesting character.

And, as always, Dixie rose from the grave numerous times!
