Although “Lane” fans of The Young and the Restless have been heartbroken that actress Christel Khalil (Lily) decided to go off-contract with the CBS Daytime soap opera, she has been making some guest appearances since then, and there is another one coming up!  Circle, Friday, October 25th when Lily is back in Genoa City

In story, Lily was sent off to prison for her part in the car crash that took the life of Hilary Curtis. Still guilt-ridden, and with problems in her marriage to Cane, Lily decided not to return home to her family.

The last time Lily was back in action in Genoa was in June of this year, when she attended the dedication ceremony for the late Neil Winter’s plaque.

It will be interesting when Lily returns on-screen this time, because now we have a Hilary doppelgänger in Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan) smack dab in the middle of the Chancellor will drama.  What will happen when Christel shares scenes again with Mishael Morgan?

Khalil told SOD in their latest issue on newsstands now: “I love working with Mishael.  So, it’s like the good ole days.  It’s so funny to have us there again. Daniel (Cane) and Bryton (Devon) were tripping out at first.”

So excited to see more Christel again on Y&R? Wish she would come back full-time, or do you hope she will continue to recur from time to time?  In real life, Khalil has relocated to Toronto, Canada from Los Angeles.  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Why did Christel move to Toronto?

I’ve been wondering about Lily alot lately when I watch Y&R. Maybe she might give us an extended visit.


I am glad that Christel is open to coming back to the show for a day or two when Lily is needed for story reasons, but I have to confess I don’t miss the character on a daily basis at all.


Nah, I was glad when she went off-contract.
I think the main reason I didn’t like Lily is…I can’t stand Cane!
If Lily comes back and is not tied up with Cane, maybe I’ll start to like her. However, as long as she’s with Cane, I can’t stand her!


Time to cut Cane and recast Lily again and bring back Davetta Sherwood who should ve never been fired in the first place
Lane fans hold y n r hostage . Poor Cane couldnt even get a mature relationship with Tracey because Lane fans went mental
If Cristal doesnt want to come back permanently bring back Davetta to really do battle with Mishael


I hope Christel likes cold weather and the snow..Quite the change in lifestyle for her I would imagine.


Tristan Rogers Making A Return To Y&R

General Hospital favorite, Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) is returning to his other soap stomping grounds that of Genoa City and The Young and the Restless. Rogers is slated to reprise his role of Colin Atkinson for an upcoming two-day appearance on the CBS Daytime drama series.

Look for Tristan to be back on the Y&R canvas soon.  He was originally slated for the November 20th episode. but that could shift due to the network coverage of President Trump’s impeachment hearings.

Rogers told SOD that he was excited to have the opportunity to work with his former on-screen lady love Jess Walton (Jill) again.

Also of note: could Colin’s arrival precipitate his son, Cane’s exit since Daniel Goddard has been let-go from the series?  Stay tuned to find out.

Rogers last aired in 2017 on the number one soap opera when he and Jill left Genoa City for a bucket list trip around the globe, only to find Jill returning solo in 2019.

So what do you think brings Colin to the Y&R canvas? Jill? Cane? Both? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.

Nevertheless not great timing when the soaps are revving up their stories to make you tune-in for not-to-be missed episodes.

So, what are your thoughts on what the Impeachment hearings could mean for daytime dramas in in the weeks ahead? Comment below.
