Fan favorite, Michael Graziadei (Daniel) is returning for a short stint on The Young and the Restless and will be appearing on the series this summer!

According to a exclusive post from CBS Soaps In Depth, “Graziadei will be appearing in four episodes, the first of which airs on Tuesday, July 30.”   Could it be that Daniel’s appearance in Genoa City has anything to do with the departing Michelle Stafford who plays Grazadei’s on-screen mom, Phyllis?

Michael Graziadei had decided late last year to exit Y&R after eight and a half years with the series, and was last seen on the January 2nd episode of the CBS soap.  Graziadei was then cast in an ABC pilot originally titled Venice,  but the series was not picked up by the network for the new fall line-up!

So would you like to see Michael back on Y&R full-time or on a recurring basis? Do you think he is filming scenes surrounding the upcoming exit of Phyllis on the Genoa City canvas?  Let us know your thoughts!

I would love him to come back and also Daisy . I loved Daisy and Daniel they really were making Phyllis nuts and Daisy knew how to give it to her good! The show needs real drama not the garbage that has been going on these days with that Carmine Lauren stuff and who cares about Chelsea and her spawn. Let summer have sex with her brother to make everyone go crazy and Nick gets blamed. The show isn’t the show I used to love see take chances.It’s all boring baby junk and Rose? Who cares unless its Drucilla. Still sad they will not let back one of my favorites back Victoria Rowell. Sharon is my top character I love and really what are they doing with Adam I don’t think anyone likes that character now. I want him with Sharon. nick has nothing to say since he kidnapped Summer from Jack for 18 years. 🙂

As much as I like the actor, without Phyllis, Daniel really has no strong connection, cetrainyl not to his Aunt Avery. I would like Phyllis to find happiness as she exits (hopefully not forever) and having her depart with her son, as he was when she arrived in Genoa City, well then… that would be good.

I am glad for the connective tissue. Still, I am sad Miss Stafford is leaving the show.

I really want Michael G. Back on Y & R – I’m really missing the long time veterans!

I too miss the veterans of daytime soaps; that’s why we fell in love with Y&R. I like the way Daniel had a “quiet” nature around him but still could produce rivoting moments. Looking forward to seeing you back.

I think he is back for MS’s departure which makes me wonder if they are killing her off?

don’t think they will kill phyllis off – i think they will leave it so she can return later on if she wants to……………jmo

No. His character brings nothing of interest for me to the table.

He’s not needed.

I won’t mind seeing him once and while, but nothing had really been done with him lately (or before he left) that was really good soap.

Come back to GC and take your Mom back to you with your daughter in Savannah.

That way the door will be open for Phyllis to come back.

If Phyllis isn’t in town, he’s not really needed, unless to keep an eye on Summer.

Can’t believe Michelle is leaving now with this big story going on.

“Could it be that Daniel’s appearance in Genoa City has anything to do with the departing Michelle Stafford who plays Grazadei’s on-screen mom, Phyllis?”

That sounds like a rhetorical question. 🙂

Well Michael did not have any storyline, but it does make me curious as to why he is returning for a short stint. Is it in connection with Michelle S. departure. I hope Y&R does not kill Phyllis off or could it be Nick and Phyllis told Jack about Summer. Jack needs to know and Phyllis has taken this too calmly. It is wrong. What are they waiting on until Summer and Kyle sleep together. I would hope Y&R does not let the storyline go there. This will affect the lives of many. I have always thought this storyline would come back around. Please do the right thing and tell Jack and suffer the consequences.

Jack Van

He’s coming back for a guest shot for one of two reasons, he’s taking Phyllis and Summer back with he, ending that stupid storyline and leaving the character of Phyllis an opening to return in some capacity, or he’s coming back to bury his mom, ending the Phyllis character.

Mark Y

He’s an excellent young actor, one of the best, and there’s always a place for talent. I have not doubt in my mind that Phyllis will return.

YES! I believe Michael Graziadei return has everything to do with Michelle Staffords departure asPhyllis. Regardless… I’ll enjoy seeing him again and HOPE to see BOTH of them on Y&R again. Leave the door open for Michelle to return as “Phyllis, PLEASE!
And give “Daniel” a reason to STAY in Genoa City….

Daniel was seriously my #1 LEAST FAVORITE character in the 33 years I have been watching this show.

#2 was AMBER. Let me guess? She is coming back, too? Ugh!

Chaz

He probably is coming back to be part of Phyllis’s exit. Which means, at least for now, she is not being recast. Although I love Michelle Stafford, it seems odd that Phyllis would depart on the heels of the reveal of Summer’s true father. It would seem Summer would need her mother’s support, not her running off. Unless they have Summer leave for a while as well and then return for the start of college.

I like Graziadei and would like him to be on recurring while they find story for the character. The last months of his tenure they seemed to waste the character.

Gia

I Totally agree with Chaz regarding the waste of Mr. Graziadei’s character!

I would love to see him come back, but please give him a decent storyline!

I think that phyllis should come out of the coma so that she may tell nick, jack and summer what really happend with the test results. Summer is still in love with kyle and they should know the truth. I really like Phyllis. I hope she does not exit the show, if she does I hope she comes back. Yes and Daniel should definately come back and I agree with some of the posts he should get a good storyline. So Please writers put your heads together and come up with a good storyline. Y and R is my favorit soap this is the only soap I watch. Love all the actors and actresses. I miss Jeannie Cooper (very gracious actress may she RIP.

Bring Daniel back need some of the nostalgia it used to have. Losing Michelle is not a good thing . It’s bad enough we lost the real Billy, but the new old one is so much alike.Just keep this soap going!

Heather Locklear Sent To Hospital For Psych Evaluation After Threatening To Harm Herself

Former Dynasty and Melrose Place star, Heather Locklear is back in the news Monday morning with another troubling report from TMZ.com.

Reportedly, Locklear was hospitalized in Thousand Oaks, California on Sunday.  Her mother called 911 claiming the actress was threatening to kill herself, and acting erratically.

In the dispatch audio call that was made public by TMZ, it seemed that her mother claimed that Locklear was “agitated and violent.”  She also added that Heather was, “trying to hurt herself and looking for a gun to shoot herself, even though she does not have access to any weapons.”

Both the Ventura Country Fire and Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to Locklear’s home.

A source close to Heather reportedly said that the actress was agitated during the day, so her parents went over to her home to check on her. According to the report, that’s when Locklear got violent, choking her mother and hitting her father.

Locklear was arrested months ago on a felony charge for domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer following a domestic dispute with her boyfriend.  The domestic abuse charges were dropped in March. Locklear was in rehab in April, while her attorneys pleaded not guilty to battery on her behalf.

Back in 2008, there was a report that Locklear was also suicidal. The Melrose Place and Dynasty star has had a history of substance abuse.

So, what do you think of the latest troubles for Heather? Comment below.

Apple said the new deal will not affect Winfrey’s contract with OWN, the television network she launched in 2011. Oprah has a contract there till 2025.

For Apple landing this deal with Winfrey and other big names will keep audiences checking out content on their iPhones and Apple TV, and potentially bring in more consumers who want to see the exclusive content from O.

Reports say that new deal with Oprah will include everything but the kitchen sink from: film, applications, books, and content that can be easily distributed across all Apple platforms.  Winfrey’s “Harpo Films” will apparently own any and all content produced under the Apple partnership.

So, what do you think of new Oprah content and programs coming to Apple? Comment below.
