Now here’s some interesting casting news.  None other than Chrishell Stause is heading to Genoa City and CBS’ The Young and the Restless.  

The actress who first appeared on the daytime scene on All My Children (Ex-Amanda) and then Days of our Lives  (Ex-Jordan) is set to stir things up when her new character of Bethany Bryant arrives on the scene.

According to TV Line who first broke the news, Bethany is a young woman who relishes the chance to push things to the limit and live dangerously as long as she’s not the one who gets burned.  The wild child will find herself immersed in a prominent family’s juicy drama.

Stause will make her Y&R debut on the May 23rd episode.  In real life, Stause is dating Y&R leading man, Justin Hartley (Adam) and is best friends with Justin’s on-screen lady love Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea).

Hartley took to Twitter to support of the Stause casting news stating:  “This is great news!!! Proud of this lady and proud of the show for this fine hire!!”

Meanwhile. Stause was overwhelmed with the support from CBS Daytime tweeting: “WOW-do you guys know how to make a girl feel special!! I grew up watching Y&R w/ my mom & I can’t tell you what this warm welcome means.”

So, how do you think Bethany will stir things up in GC?   Will she be linked to and become involved with Adam? Another Newman? An Abbott?  What do you think of Chrishell coming on to Y&R?  Comment below!

Nothing against Chrishell who i’m sure will do a fine job in her new role but I would have rather seen her as a recast for maybe Paul’s daughter Heather or even Mac.

I concur, her or Rebecca Herbst as Mac

Sometimes some characters just don’t fit into the bigger picture.. I prefer her to be new.. She sounds like Hayden on GH

Wow! Impressive. She and Justin are a couple in real life, aren’t they? Perhaps, Chelsea and Adam are strolling down splitsville.

@Nikki.
Hi, Nikki, my ‘buddy’,
Chrishell is a very likable actress….easy going. I loved her both as Amanda and Jordan. It’s a matter of taste.
And, I said the same thing about Natalie….I really like her now because she is interesting…..multi-faceted.
Summer? If it wasn’t bad enough how many Y&R fans have not taken to the character; TPTB made it worse by starting this so-out-of-sync sexual liaison with Luca…..the Spaniard with an Italian name who looks neither Castilian Spanish nor Italian. LOL.

How about a Summer recast!

Nikki
Guest

Oh my Timmm you have my vote with that one, but we’ll have to wait and see how she plays out. Hopefully they don’t break up Adam & Chelsea to put them together. I thought if Adam & Chelsea break up Adam would find out about the baby and head over to Sage. You know Tim when the computer geek (Natalie) came on the scene I didn’t care much for her but now I like her. I never seen Chrishell acting so time and a good storyline will tell.

EXACTLY. She would’ve been an excellent recast for Heather or Mac!!! But we all know Chuck Pratt doesn’t pay attn to a shows history. Damn shame.

I have been asking for a Mac come-back forever. She needs to take the reins to everything Chancellor…..Devon, with his ‘strange’ wife, will run it to the ground.

Gang, seriously….Summer? Gina Tognoni is pushing it age wise as Phyllis, and Chrishell is 35 years old. I like the suggestion here that she should have been Paul’s daughter Heather. Adam and Heather were an item back in the day, and Justin and Chrishell are an item. I just wish these shows would look at the canvas when they get all hot and bothered because they have a “big star” coming on board…and see where the person could be written in where it would have the most meaningful impact within the framework and history of the show. “Big stars” rarely… Read more »

Love her as an actress but way to many new people on these soaps and the storylines continue to suffer. They should have brought her over as someone who’s off the canvas and returning and whom already has history.

This actress is gorgeous and I wish her well. The problem with Y&R is not that they don’t have top notch talent, it’s that they don’t know how to use it. This current team pays little attention to the shows history except to constantly rewrite it, it puts characters in situations that they can never get out of successfully, and forgets the legends that are still ON THE SHOW. I don’t mind new blood, but never at the expense of the mighty talent already on the show. Seems like the 40, 50 and 60 something set are all but forgotten… Read more »

Following the mismanagement of her in the role of Jordan Ridgeway on Days of Our Lives, I am hoping that the team at The Young and the Restless will treat her right. Was not a fan of her as Amanda on All My Children, so I have hopes that Bethany will be different.

Though, I would rather have seen her as Heather Stevens or Mackenzie Browning, but am will to see how Bethany works out!

Interesting casting. I wonder if she’s on the scene to break up Adam and Chelsea and they skip town together? I hope this is the case because (even though I’m a fan) JH’s talents are being wasted on a show that constantly recycles storylines. It must get boring always having to apologize to annoying Chelsea and asking for another chance to be a family. I know he filmed a prime time pilot, I hope it was picked up.

Don’t pair her with off screen love– I have always found real life couples to have zero chemistry when it comes to their characters, I don’t know why, but they rarely work on screen. Other than that, new characters are often needed to stir the pot, but over all I find writers create new characters because they get more money for it, so often the new characters feel like square pegs trying to fit into a round hole, because they never really gel into the canvas—

Chrishell Stause = age 34
Melissa Claire Egan = age 34
Justin Heartly = age 39
and all the other ‘new’ and the many players upfront are seem to be the younger..
Perhaps- Putting the ‘young’ back into the Young and the Restless?

I think it a bit strained and weird when husband and wife work on the same soap..
Hey! ever notice;
there are many soap actors married to soap actors..
hmm maybe soap actors don’t have much of a life outside the soaps and mary from within.. lol

Well, when you think about it – where would anyone meet anyone – many people meet at work functions and then date. So, yes, I think actors are in the same boat, they meet and work together either in a film project or tv series – I think it does happen that way.

Chrishell will be a excellent addition to the show. I think she will be great with Billy Abbott. He needs to get away from Victoria. Chrishell will help Billy to see there is life with out Little Ms Victor jr…. Billy don’t need to get romantic with his sister n law, been there done so many time with the Newman family

Please here wishing they put Chrishell with Billy!!

Nikki

Like you Nikki, I am unfamiliar with Crishell. Fans of AMC are excited so count me in! I do hope she and Billy hook up! I’m done with VICtoria and I hope Billy and FAKE Fillis dont sleep together. If they do, the only good part is Jack can dump her! I cannot stand Chelsea and I want her gone! Seriously, Adam has been pretty well behaved compared to his past dealings and all that Hellshea does is NAG! What guy would put up with this? And Adam is handsome and rich, he isnt desperate!

Well, we don’t seem to be having much luck with these younger parts, given the early demises of gorgeous Matthew Atkinson (Austin), Courtney, three different adult Kyles, a forgotten Fenmore, Shawn, a now-recurring-only Noah, long gone Eden, Ricky Williams, and others I’m sure I missed. Maybe this one will fit in? No offense to the actress, but I’m not holding my breath.

Happy to see an AMCer employed! Theres a million ways to go with her. She could be Natalie’s older sister, a fashion model, someone from Chelsea’s past who hopefully steals Adam away from her or the new prison doctors or judge Moxley’s daughter?

Budget cuts… what really happened to the actors that played Noah and Marissa? And now there’s money for this one? Pleasssssse……

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest

Sofia Pernas (Marisa) was only cut to recurring status because she booked a pilot; that had nothing to do with budget cuts. Robert Adamson (Noah) is probably linked to budget cuts, but also to Sofia’s bump.

She booked the pilot AFTER she was changed to recurring, otherwise she wouldn’t have been able to book it.

Can’t stand this pandering to Chuck Pratt & JFP they could not write a story anymore for Noah the son of two legacy characters that have been created and on our screens for 21 years ! I could care less about this woman we do not need another new character the vets that put this show to number one where are they other then Eric Braeden who they are scared of so that’s why he gets story . What’s wrong with Daytime? They have no loyalties you can write stories without airplane crashes blown up buildings that was what Daytime… Read more »

I am an outsider. It is difficult to see so many newcomers. Too many storylines are left without finish. Too many I said; some need to linger. In my field it became very complicated, years ago, when women spouses kept their birth names because often they married people working in the same field. One always had to be very careful to whom one was speaking. They may, in fact, have been married to one not so friendly to the conversation. I wish everyone well, but wish I didn’t know this. Politically I don’t like it. It can work. Probably has… Read more »

Tani Sterling

I understand you “huh.” This was poorly written. My attempted point was that couples, whether married or single, can cause confusing group dynamics in the work place. There are always exceptions.

Too many new people arriving on the set which is breaking up a much needed core set of characters. That is one of the problems in my humble opinion.

Hi April. Just one little quibble with your post. I get what you are saying about bringing in big names from other shows…it bothers me too. But, You mention failed shows…Chrishell was on All My Children, which was on the air for 41 years, most of those years being near the top of the ratings. Any show that lasts 41 years can hardly be called “failed”. Yes, it was cancelled, but it did not fail. You also mention low rated…well, ALL the soaps are low rated, that’s why there’s only 4 left. Ratings have ceased to even be an issue… Read more »

Phelps and Pratt continue to prove they don’t care about show history and legacy characters. They don’t wanna write for Noah and Kyle, third generation characters who can carry the Newman and Abbott name, so they get demoted to the point we will hardly ever seen them. The oldest Newman grandson and first born child of Shick get demoted as does the young son of Jack Abbott. Phelps and Pratt are giving us yet another new character instead doing the right thing and hiring Stause to play a recasted Mac, Heather, or Eden. They could’ve given the Williams and Baldwin… Read more »

I think it will be weird. Chrishell’s real life boyfriend (Justin) is on the show and is hooked up with her real life best friend (Missy Claire Egan) on the show. They (Adam and Chelsea)spend so much time in the sack and kissing (and although it is ALL ACTING), who wants to watch their best friend kissing their boyfriend all day? Its all strange to me. JMO…

I’m really excited! Chrishell is a great actress, and I think she’ll fit well on the Y&R canvas. She never really fit in at DAYS, but that was because of the writing. Jordan never really had a purpose, and newbies rarely fare well on DAYS (look at Fynn, Lani and Summer for current examples, as well as countless others from the past, like Taylor, Madison, Ian, Serena, Paige, Clyde, etc.) I would have preferred she join the show as Mac or Heather, though, as other people have commented. Characters with ties to the canvas are usually much better than newbies,… Read more »

I’m so glad to read that Chrishell has been hired on to Y&R. I hope they won’t write her character to come between Adam and Chelsea; it would make more sense (well, to me, anyway) to pair her with Billy. That would make Victoria miss him all the more when she sees the two together. However, I’ll accept Chrishell as Bethany in just about any storyline. This actress can make anything work.

At least it’s something and someone new (to this canvas) to look forward to. Welcome, Chrishell !

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Exit Days of our Lives

Coming up on Days of our Lives, both Lani and Eli Grant will be written off the canvas to facilitate the departures of Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani).

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Archey who stepped into the role in 2017, has made the decision to leave the long-running NBC soap opera, and will last air the week of July 4.

As for Stowers, she will last air on Friday, July 1st, and given her current storyline, it looks like Lani, who has confessed to murdering TJ (William Christian), will either be sent to prison, or will exit Salem with Eli.

This would not be the first-time that Stowers has departed DAYS.  After her debut in 2015, she was off the Salem canvas for a six-month break in 2016, before returning to the show through 2022.

We will share more information on Lamon and Sal’s exits as it comes to light.

Y&R Daytime Emmy Nominees, Jason Thompson and Melissa Ordway, Test Positive for Covid-19

It was about to come true, until I tested positive for Covid yesterday afternoon. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to celebrate with everyone on Friday. I’ve cried lots of tears.  Thankfully, I’m asymptomatic. I’m super grateful no one in our home is sick. What a blessing.  To my Daytime community, have the best time. Wish I could be there but I’ll be watching from home and cheering on all of the nominees! Y&R bring home the gold! Love you all! And to everyone at CBS and Sony thank you for everything. So grateful to play Abby. @youngandrestlesscbs.  To my amazing parents, I’m so sorry that this weekend has fallen apart. I was so excited to attend the awards with you. This nomination was because you always believed in me. I love you. To everyone who’s cheered me on, sent me well wishes and love and support, it means more to me than you’ll ever know.
