It’s time for a crossover between CBS sister soaps, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless.

At the epicenter of this is B&B original cast member, John McCook (Eric Forrester) who started his soap opera career as Lance Prentiss on Y&R.

In story on Y&R, Eric comes to Genoa City to visit old flame Lauren Fenmore (Tracey E. Bregman), who he briefly had a fling with when she relocated to Los Angeles for a millisecond in the late 9o’s and thus Bregman was on B&B for that stint.

Now according to EW.com, on the upcoming January 27th episode of Y&R, “Lauren will reconnect with Eric, who is the founder of the Forrester Creations fashion house, just as her own company is considering an investment from Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman).”

Can Eric help Lauren out of her company financial woes?  Share your thoughts on the upcoming visit by McCook to Y&R in the comment section below.

Now this is a classy crossover that has relevance! Happy to see Y&R giving Lauren Fenmore some love. And to see it honor John McCook as a Y&R original!

In my opinion, they were long overdue in giving Lauren love. So nice to have her in the thick of things where she belongs. Now if we could have some more Jill sightings things will be complete. I would love to see Jill and Gloria have a couple of good tongue lashings for old time sake.

Didn’t know Lauren and Eric had a thing, but whatever she has to do to F¥@€ Jack over, I’m all for it!
I’m REALLY sick of smarmy Jack-ass!!

Agree about Jack! He’s a wonderful actor. He’s been stuck in one dismal storyline after another. He keeps doing the best with subparagraph material.

My hope is both Jack and Ashley get storylines worthy of the actors and our attention

In one of the episodes from last week, Ashley mentioned to Billy that she had a dinner date. Maybe they are finally going to give her a full blown relationship. I was upset when the writers passed on teaming her with Nevell. That was a waste of two soap icons at their best. If memory serves me correctly in my old age, I don’t think Ashley has been in a half way decent relationship since the Tucker years. in any case she is long overdue. We’ll soon find out

I still can’t figure what’s going on with Lauren’s company but I do have a feeling someone is behind the major dip in sales at Fenmore’s. The only thing I can’t piece is who could pull something like this if this is where the story will bring us. I am just glad Lauren is in her own story again!!!

I am enjoying seeing Lauren with her own story as well. She has been away for far to long. It’s nice to see hercin the thick of things. And adding Gloria to the mix is wonderful. She iscbarely back for 5 minutes, and already she is snooping and playing dirty with Jack o f wllcpeople. I will definitely drive Michael crazy when he gets wind of it. Jack is really u4ning into a bigger pompous ass then usual. I am dying to see how this story is going to play
out. And adding John McCook is like adding icing on the cake. Loving it!

Fenmore’s is experiencing the same sort of problems that Macy’s, JCP, and Sears are experiencing: decreased sales/profits. Real world problem.

Hi, James,
I have the sneaking suspicion that Jack is behind the sabotage. My grandmother says Jack is regressing to the old Jack of 35 years ago….the same Jack who left Victor in his office, on the floor, to die, albeit he did get Victor help after a long while.
I only hope Lauren does not wear her heart on her sleeve and gets hoodwinked by Jack and/or Gloria.
I am particularly interested how Lauren will tackle the ‘mysterious’ usurper behind the imbroglio.
What mystfies me is Gloria. Is she pretending to help Jack to get to the truth for Lauren’s sake; or will she back-stab Lauren for her own selfish, personal monetary gain? She said she’s penniless….so……

however, this plays out…. latest SOD issue poll

IS NOT

happy with Jack… no matter that Jack has got his bite back

Ms. Lauren Fenmore… is not to be toyed or messed with… unless its Carmine ( lol )

just saying

if you fudge this up… Victor is watching

at long last… with Jack the man abbot back… in full swing…

even I don’t think this is the best way to go about corporate subterfuge

it’s not something Jack would do ? The Fenmore and Abbott have never feuded ?

alas… since Phyllis is helping Lauren … look for this to be a an entanglement w/ RED

Phyllis and Jack need to both move on

I have a feeling that Phyllis and Jack will both be in each other’s orbits, uncontrollably with Phyllis helping Lauren and Fenmore’s and Jack becoming involved on the other side of things. Who knows?

Now bring Kimberlin Brown back as Sheila! This brings back the feels of when B&B was great.

It would li en things up to see Quinn and Shelia fighting over Eric. What a wonderful cat fight that wpoldcmake

Lauren is very beautiful. Why Y&r waisted years with Sharon when they had their lead lady all along. I say free her from Michael and have her mix with Nick!! Victor could be behind Fenn’s downspiral and she could want revenge by sleeping with his son! Why not? Heck i would love it even more if she went back to Paul so Cricket, Paul and Lauren could be back fromt burner again…

Celia
Celia

Hmmmm Ghlover. That sounds like too much work on Paul’s part. He has so much to digest, as it is….risking the loss or yet another child. Plus, one cannot re-create what once was. At their age, the landscape is painted by a different hand and with a different brush. The result would be drastic.
I want Lauren to come out as the heroine, smelling like a rose, concetrsting on saving her legacy from drowning.
I would love for the writers to have Lauren, A WOMAN, take the bull by the horns and outsmart Jack or whomever means her harm. I am not intrigued by the prospect of yet another helpless little woman caught in a love triangle oo old.
The stage should be hers…..she has been hidden from view long enough.
Furthermore, I dread the thought of watching Christine in action. She reminds me of my catechism teacher ( Sister Mary Catherine)……stiff and unchangeable. I can only take her in small doses.

Good answer about the Paul and Lauren idea. That would make for some interesting cat fights.

Loving the new writers as well. If they keep up the pace and the wonderful ideas, I will definately keep watching

I’m loving Lauren as being more than a prop for Michael’s arm or a “hi sis” for Jill. I like that they are dealing with what is current in department stores in real life but what I’m not liking is once again the show not building even a small set for Lauren’s office. One thing is certain, Lauren’s apartment, while nice, would have been redone a few times in the decade or more it’s been a set. It’s time for the show to give it a facelift as Lauren is in fashion and her place is a man cave. The other is she needs to be shown truly working with others to rebuild or save FENMORES.

The fact that Laurenis struggling in private and Michael knows nothing is ridiculous. If Jack knows and Gloria easily knows than a michael should have known months ago. It’s a fail on new regime not to show that this power couple know when the other is struggling and is there for support.

Also, why isnt she talking with her sister? Why isn’t she approaching Jack or even Ashley and saying let’s make a deal. Her reaction yesterday was unprofessional and I still don’t get why characters on Y&R can remember ” bad Jack” from sooooo many years ago and use that against him when he is clearly doing good business but seem to easily and handily forget all that Victor Just did ten minutes ago?

Jack coming to Lauren at her home and OFFERING TO HELP FENMORES and merging with Jabot is less aggressive then say “just buying up all the debt and calling in the loans and forcing Lauren’s hand” like Victor would do. Sure story is just being told but I’ve been hoping for more from these writers instantly so that I truly can say FINALLY!!!

Good stuff.

I just hope that Quinn doesn’t decide to ‘tag along’…LOL!!!

I wonder if Eric will voluntarily fill Quinn in on has past relationship with Lauren. That would make for interesting pillow talk. Maybe he can throw Shelia into the mix as well. Take care and for listening

I LOOK FORWARD TO THE SOAPS EVERYDAY MY HOLE DAY DOESNT START TILL I WATCH THEM… KEEP UP ALL THE GOOD WORK NEW WRITER , SOME OF THE STORYLINES NEED A REFRESH A CHANGE LIKE FOR EXAMPLE SHARON NEEDS A BREAK SHES ALWAYS HURTIN AND LOSING PEOPLE GIVE HER SOME HAPPINESS BUT I DONT LIKE NICK AN CHELSEA NO NO PLZ. VICTOR IS CHANGIN SO WHY NOT SOME OF THE OLD STORYLINES SWITCH UM UP. AND GET RID OF HILIARY LET DEVON HAVE SOME REAL LOVE ID LIKE KEVIN AND MIRIAH TO BE TOGETHER BUT IF NOT LET HER HELP HEAL DEVON THEYD BE A CUTE COUPLE AND WHEN IS SHAMAR MOORE COMIN BACK…. BEEN WAITIN FOR FOREVER IT SEEMS NOW THAT DEVON IS HURT AND IN HOSPITAL BRING HIM BACK.

END OF RANT.LOL..

This is so great. I have been wishing for a crossover for ages. What a great idea!

There are so many possibilities with Chelsea 2.0, Jabot and Fenmore’s. Any one of those companies could and should have business with Forester Creations. Bring it on!

Mal Young and Sally Sussman have been doing such a great job. I thank my lucky stars every day that they are bringing us Y&R. Keep up the great work team!!!
