Celebrating their 11, 000 episode milestone this week on the September 1st airshow, The Young and the Restless and CBS Daytime released on Tuesday a special video featuring Christian LeBlanc (Michael) as he chats with many of the mainstays in Genoa City regarding the latest accomplishment for the top-rated series.

LeBlanc gets a myriad of thoughts from several Y&R castmates on their favorite moments and scenes, remembrances, what makes the show as well as it has, and what being part of TV history means to them, and most of all some “shout outs” to the fans for their enduring support.

Christian speaks with: Sharon Case (Sharon), Joshua Morrow (Nick), Lauralee Bell (Christine), Steve Burton (Dylan), Kristoff St. John (Neil) Peter Bergman (Jack), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki), Eric Braeden (Victor), Melissa Ordway (Abby), and Doug Davidson (Paul).  Y&R’s co-creator Lee Phillip Bell also appears.

However, it was Lauralee Bell who spoke of her father, the late, great Bill Bell (Y&R co-creator) that touched us the most.  Lauralee related to the camera: “On behalf of my parents, this was their dream true come true, and it’s still going on.  I know my dad is around here somewhere, and my mom is here today.  So, thank you.”

Beyond unfair. Am in Canada to read with the video above: This video is not available in your country. Gee, it’s not as if this is going to be ‘stolen’ by fans in Canada or anything. What’s with this? Considering many fans are in Canada, this is close to insulting as many of us would like to watch this video.

What a wonderful video! Everyone seems to enjoy their craft. Steve Burton will NEVER go back to GH because 1, he is happy at Y&R and 2, THAT show is unstable! He knows staying at Y&R will give him and opportunity to set up a hell of a retirement package!

Fun video but all the flashbacks this last two weeks of the actors favorite storylines etc just made me sad because it was so good then an they are struggling for me I mean this exit storyline for Adam is awful. I guess after this week I go back to catching it now and then. Pratt has written the baby story into a corner what was the point just so the audience could hate Sharon more?

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”
