Cast Talks Y&R's 11,000th Episode Milestone: Lauralee Bell Shares,"On Behalf Of My Parents, This Was Their Dream Come True, And It's Still Going On."


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.”

Watch the Y&R 11k cast video after the jump.  Then, let us know what you thought of it in the comment below!  And share your congrats for their 11,000th episode!

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.


So freaking irritating that do many Canadians love and are loyal to y&r yet we can’t see videos posted by cbs.

So fabulous to watch! Congrats to #YR on #11KEpisodes! Well deserved!


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?

Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment

Glad to hear there is more Arturo in Genoa City and Jason is on contract at the top-rated daytime drama series? Comment below.
