Right after the new year, there is big trouble headed the way of Noah Newman and God knows who else on the Genoa City canvas!  That’s when Jhonna Flores debuts as Noah’s girlfriend, Adriana.

Flores will first be seen on-air on the January 4th episode of the number one sudser, The Young and the Restless!

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale on newsstands now, Flores gives a bit of insight on what viewers can expect when her new character arrives on the canvas: ” She is seductive and manipulative. She’s from Noah’s past and comes with some trouble under her sleeve.  You don’t know what her true motives are. I’m expecting most girls who have crushes om Robert Adamson’s character of Noah, will hate me.  I’m ready for it! (Laughs)”

Jhonna also revealed to SOD that her first day on the set was pretty interesting: “It was a little intimidating.  They just threw me right in there, which was great.   In my first scene, I’m making out with a guy and straddling him on a couch! And, it’s my first on-screen kiss.  Now there’s lots of dialogue and scripts to learn, but it’s getting easier.”

So soapers are you intrigued to find out what this new bad girl has up her sleeve? Are you digging Robert Adamson as the new Noah Newman?  Weigh-in!

    NO All these Newbie are not doing anything for me but taking up air time that could be giving to others like the Winters-Ashby-Chancellor Family. what Y&R needs to do is bring back Keemo , Colleen,JT,Mac,Nate & his Mom, Colin , Chance , Ronan and Chance ‘s Dad.

    Linda I totally agree! The show was at it’s best when the Chancellors were front and center. I was so excited when Jill returned and they’ve barely used her. Haven’t these writers learned anything the past few years? Good storytelling, good acting with multiple generations are the basis of all soaps and people are watching (General Hospital!).

    If I want to see smart aleck teeny boppers I’ll watch the Disney channels.

    I have to say that I am surprised. I really thought that Noah was going to come out. He does have gay mannerisms and would be a better storyline especially if Nikki or Victor rejected him.

    That would just be disgusting. Hire a handsome young man to play a needlessly gay man? To what end?

    Ashlee, what is disgusting is the fact that you made such a comment like that. Amazing that we still have narrow-minded people in this country. I personally think Robert would be a great person to play a needed gay character on the show since there currently aren’t any. I also feel the show should introduce Hispanic characters as well.

    Y&R had their brief moment of a gay story line when Phillip Chancellor came back from the dead and announce he was gay. They also had the gay attorney Rafe, who was seduce by Adam. When Victor found out, and thought his son was gay because of it, he was cool with it so I don’t think there would have been a problem even if Noah was gay. But personally I like to see the day when being gay on a soap wasn’t a plot device or a story line. Don’t you think it would be nice to see gay characters who are people first, and their sexuality a part of who they are instead using them as device to show how progressive the show is?

    I hear you that these were past gay stories but the writers dropped the ball. I agree that the characters should be people first as gay people are. We face the same problems everyone else does. A good writer can do this and hoping these writers can with Robert or someone else.

    Couldn’t have said it better myself!

    Nikki replied

    I think Noah being gay and having the all-powerful Victor Newman respond to that would have been brilliant. It would add much needed diversity to the show, but with JFP at the helm, there’s no way a story like that, especially a front burner one, would ever be created.

    Maybe if they tied these newbies into existing characters…like say the Emmy winning David Lago who played Raul, and was Billys best friend…bringing in a bunch of ethnic newbies is ALWAYS a recipe for disaster. Santa Barbara did it best…they were just organic characters seamlessly interwoven with the whole cast…it never reeked of “Lets tell an ethnic minority story with a bunch of non connected newbies who no one cares about“

    OMG! I forgot about David Lago’s “Raul”. Loved that Emmy speech. I’d love to see him back on Y&R. Billy needs a friend and the LAST thing Y&R needs is another newbie.

    No one cares about the new Noah yet, other than the fact that he has obviously studied Steve Burtons acting. Style…ground Noah first…make him a character in his own right…then bring in a backstory

    Has anyone wondered what happened to Daisy? And who signed her out? They may have decided to drop that whole story since they are sending Daniel to Georgia. And if you are reading spoilers, Daniel was unable to talk dear old mom into going with him. Darn the bad luck! So sick of Phyllis and her whole “poor me”, “damn you” attitude. Her and Daisy should turn out to be the ones who are blood-related. They are so much alike.
