The Young and the Restless Kristoff St. John (Neil) and his former on-screen soap opera iconic flame, Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla) appeared on Thursday morning on Fox’s Good Day LA promoting their upcoming TV movie, A Baby For Christmas which bows on UP TV this Sunday night at 7:00PMET/PT.  When talking with Good Day LA co-host Steve Edwards, the duo related how Victoria, (who is one of the executive producer of the new TV movie)  asked Kristoff to join the cast, and come onboard and also server as of the executive producers on the project.

They discuss their now 25-year partnership which viewers have seen on and off on The Young and the Restless and various projects (this being their second TV film together). St. John expressed on Victoria’s Drucilla being MIA on the number one soap opera and collaborating with her: “Man, I’ve been missing her on the show.”

Rowell then relates that A Baby for Christmas is a story with meaning, is multi-generational, and ties in foster care which Victoria has continued to be an advocate for over many years.

In a couple awkward moments while discussing ugly Christmas sweaters, Kristoff makes an off-the-cuff remark harkening back to the sweaters worn by Bill Cosby on his comedy series, to which Rowell relays she worked with Cosby and began to intimate her experience was not a negative one, but the deft Victoria was quickly able to steer the interview back to the subject at hand – their TV movie.

Later, Steve Edwards who was unaware that Kristoff’s beloved son, Julian died last year after his battle with mental illness in a mental health care facility, learns the harrowing information during their chat.   St. John then takes the opportunity to mention his lawsuit against the facility, and touchingly talks about the death of his son, and the  support he received from family and friends.

Watch Kristoff and Victoria’s interview on Good Day LA after the jump, and let us know if you will be checking out A Baby For Christmas this Sunday!

KSJ never has had chemistry with anyone but VR on Y&R and if nothing else she stills looks smashing.

I love Victoria, albeit I am in the minority. Frankly? I simply DO NOT CARE how people feel about her. She is a great person and actress. It is so good to see her up and about.
By the same token, Kristoff is not one of my favorite people….we all have our opinions and favorites.

To be honest when I first heard about them doing this movie together I thought well I wonder how much heat KSJ is going to get from CBS/Sony. I deliberately try real hard not to know or get to know these guys personally I like to just watch them on screen. I was not on the set so concerning VR I have no idea what or what she did not experience. Only one actor did I know well from Y&R and that was completely by accident and he is deceased now. I figure they put their pants on the same way I do one leg at a time nothing special about them. LOL

@K/Kay.
You see it so clearly, Kay, and put it so simply….You’re right, of course. But, if you remember, months ago, people just crucified Victoria. I asked and thought the same thing….how vicious everyone was. Were they there? I certainly was not. So, how could I pass judgment based on what the media decides to print or say? I suppose my analytical mind comes from the fact that both my parents are attorneys….lol. I am used to hearing the pros and cons of life, in general, frequently. Lol.
As far as Kristoff? Well, I never took a liking to him. I can’t even explain why. We can’t like everybody. But, I adore Victoria….always have.
They are regular people….some with mor inflated egos than others, yes; but, we, the fans, put them on a pedestal. Nothing they do may be earth shattering. But, they do entertain us. That makes me very grateful ….love my soaps.

UGGG!

Boy, do I wish things could be put to rest so Neil and Drucilla could be reunited on Y&R. There is so much being missed without her.

Patrick

Yes! Thank You

why not? it’s the #1 soap with a supposed influx of ready cash… from all the monies it makes internationally and with high premiums with advertisement

it’s my understanding… Y&R has a huge following… with , here we go… politically correct… African American… I mean this respectfully…. a black family that was ready made… and featured the heck out of this couple

Victoria Rowell… is so much better, intriguing and interesting… than Lily and Devon! what snores Neil has!

for Serials… to give us that token family… argh! this bothers me… so be it! HIRE a known recognizable… figure… (iconic) actress to lead Neil !

this has been so dour and with no end in site… so they come up with the lamest stories w/ Lilly and Devon….. THEY ARE DULL !

let Drucilla come home

Hello Victoria Rowell… you look smashing and teasingly fresh and relatable to the man… theres a pulsating undercurrent to the two of you

CeeCee

Thank you, James R.

ces

Love it, ces! 🙂

I must admit that was funny, Ces.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

By now, many of you have come across and seen that Michael Fairman On Air On Soaps has evolved into the new and exciting platform, Michael Fairman TV.

I hope you take the time to tour the new site, and enjoy its new look, new features, and extended coverage; which will focus on, and include, not only your beloved daytime soap operas, but primetime television drama, a slice of reality programming, as well as popular streaming and digital series.

This site has been a long time in the making, and we’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to make this transition as smooth as possible.  As with any change, we know that it will take some time for all of us, including me, to get used to it, and adjust to it.

I truly appreciate the community that we have built for the last 10 years, and I value each and every one of you.  As with any new launch, there will be small tweaks and revisions along the way that do come up.  Our goal is to make the best user experience for you, and to bring you the news, interviews, and coverage that you expect from the Michael Fairman brand.

I know many of you are already saying you miss the old Michael Fairman Soaps, but this is an upgrade, not a demolition.  That being said, Michael Fairman Soaps was no longer sustainable as is.  The site needed to grow, evolve, change, and modernize with the times. With modernization, part of that is making the site accessible, functional on mobile phones and devices, which we now are.  While some things can’t remain the same forever, we are always interested in your input.

I am very proud and excited for this new chapter.  I hope you will enjoy everything that is to come, and I appreciate all of your loyal support.  So, let’s christen this site together and celebrate turning over a new page.
