Come On Down! Y&R's Kristoff St. John & Mishael Morgan Preview Neil and Hilary's The Price Is Right Experience … Is Love In The Air?

Tomorrow on the Wednesday March 26th episode of The Young and the Restless, Genoa City’s Neil Winters and Hilary Curtis, who have ventured to Los Angeles on a business trip, end up smack dab in the middle of the audience of the number one game show, The Price is Right!  And Hilary gets to “come on down”!

Will Hilary win big?  Will Neil find this woman who once loathed him irresistible?  Will they hang out with TPIR host, Drew Carey in this CBS crossover?

On-Air On-Soaps spoke with Kristoff St. John (Neil) and Mishael Morgan (Hilary) about what is happening between their two characters!  Are sparks going to fly now that Neil’s last attempt at love fizzled with Leslie (Angell Conwell)?  Read on to find out their thoughts on the matter, and how on earth they end up on the most popular game show ever!

Neil and Leslie’s relationship just hit the skids when they did not say their, “I do’s”.  So, what’s a guy to do?  Head to L.A. with a beautiful young woman and play America’s number one game show?

KRISTOFF:  First of all, Neil is upset about the proceedings that happened in his life.  He was hoping it would go as planned.  It didn’t happen, and so now he is potentially on the prowl.  His broken heart is quickly repairing; because evidently a day or two after the break-up, he is making plans with Hilary to possibly make her his future ex-wife! (Laughs)

How and why do Hilary and Neil end up on The Price is Right?

MISHAEL: Because it’s Hilary’s big dream, and Neil makes it come true.

Neil pulled some strings and got them some tickets? Or, did they wait in line like everyone else hoping to make it into the studio audience? (Laughs)

KRISTOFF:  Well, Neil and Hilary are on a business trip that Jack sent us on from Genoa City. This is because we need to discuss things with Forrester Creations, so there is another crossover with The Bold and the Beautiful!  So, we have this new line by Chelsea that we are about to premiere at the fashion show that is upcoming on Y&R.  We are in L.A on business and in the middle of our business, Hilary does say, “I would like to go to see The Price is Right,” and then Neil, who probably knows The Price is Right host, Drew Carey, gets Drew on the phone because they are best buddies, and he gets them the audience seats.

Now on tomorrow’s episode of Y&R, Hilary gets to “come on down” and play the one an only, Plinko?

MISHAEL:  Yes, and isn’t Plinko everybody’s favorite game?

Here’s the thing: I thought Hilary and Neil hated each other.  When did the tide turn?  Well, you know how that goes on soaps, where there is hate … there is passion!

MISHAEL:  Neil is coming around.  He got Hilary a job with Jack (Peter Bergman).  I know Hilary was nasty to him before, but I think he liked that about me!  He probably thought it was kinky. (Laughs)

KRISTOFF:  Honestly, Neil was enraged at her, but you know, “forgiveness” is a wonderful word, and “acceptance” and “tolerance” are some others.  When Neil looked at Hilary closely, he realized how broken she was, and under repair at the time.  I think he potentially felt he could be a savior, and maybe someone who for the first time in her life, she was able to express her feelings with, and cry about it, and release all of the upset she had been going through.  I think that is what has happened between them.

But Devon (Bryton James) likes Hilary, and there lies a major conflict!

MISHAEL:  Yeah, I think he does.  I do see that the guys could be fighting over her, which could be interesting.  But, Hilary looks up to Neil. 

Everybody looks up to Neil!

KRISTOFF:  No! (Laughs) Neil is Mr. Boring, milquetoast, stand up guy!   He does have an image he has to uphold and that is an image that happens to Neil/KSJ.  I am just waiting to bust out of this “Superman” suit that is worn, and let people see the other side of Neil.

Hilary was recently kissing Jack!  She sure is getting around.  What’s driving her?

MISHAEL:  Yes, she gets around!

KRISTOFF:  She is a floozy! (Laughs)

MISHAEL:  Hilary is attracted to power and ambition and all these great things that these great man have.  She wants to be out there with them and be in that world.

Courtesy/CBS

KRISTOFF:  Well … the powers right here in the form of … “Steel Winters”! (Laughs)

Kristoff, does it bother you that they have paired you with different women over the more recent years on Y&R (post-Drucilla), and none of the pairings have stuck?  Do you think that Hilary and Neil have the potential to be a winning combo?

KRISTOFF:  I do feel that way.  I do feel there is a real juxtaposition tweak, where you have Neil this very straight-laced guy and she is straight-laced too, but because they hated each other at the beginning, this could be a romance of a lifetime, or it may implode.  But to answer the other question, because Drucilla (Victoria Rowell) left Neil’s life none can compare in the eye of the audience and that is the problem.  I lost my supercouple status when she walked out the door.  It’s very difficult to replace that other half of a supercouple on soaps.  That is why they haven’t been able to match the character very well with anyone.  I feel that this could be the second time with Mishael, and actually, I thought Nia Peeples (Ex-Karen) when she was here was on the mark.  And Angell Conwell (Leslie), I love working with.  I know there was chemistry there.  I just don’t think the audience was in full support of it.

Mishael, after Hilary’s original machinations and revenge tactics that brought her to Genoa City, the character could have been easily been written off the canvas.  But instead, which is a testament to you, Y&R gave you a contract and it looks like know they are anchoring you to another story, where you could have been lost in the mix.

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

MISHAEL:  I could be floating around. I am ecstatic to have this story and to be at Y&R.

I assume you don’t want Hilary to just become a “goody-girl” now.

MISHAEL:  I don’t want her to be a total “goody-girl”.  I want her to have that fire.  I think that fire is what always makes the Neil character more interesting within a couple’s scenario, because he is so straight laced.  So that fire is necessary to draw things out and you know the old saying, “Opposites Attract”?  So, it’s cool.  We will see where it goes.

Last word Kristoff, on Neil and Hilary’s trip to L.A?

KRISTOFF:  The last word is … while Neil and Hilary are in Los Angeles; I think they are having a wonderful time, not even approaching the romantic side of their relationship yet. But I think all of it would take is a Jacuzzi, a bottle of wine and a twenty-five cent quarter bed at a cheap motel and it’s on and popping!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

MISHAEL:  You are unbelievable!  (Laughs)

Ditto to that scenario, Mishael?

MISHAEL:  Ditto. (Laughs)

So, what do you think of a Neil/Hilary pairing? Do you think these two would make a hot couple on Y&R?  Do you think that it won’t matter who they put Neil with because no one can compete with the Neil/Drucilla pairing? Will you be tuning into to see what happens tomorrow when Neil and Hilary visit The Price is Right?  Let us know your thoughts below!

They bore me. FF through scenes yesterday of them discussing March madness. It’s bad enough soaps interrupt my shows, but to then discuss the stuff that interrupts the shows: WRONG!

Loved when B&B’s Pam and Donna went to TPIR. I doubt this will be as good.

I went to a taping of TPIR and had a great time.

My goodness this girl, and I mean girl is young enough to be his daughter and you guys are talking about pairing them up as couple. It was bad enough with Leslie who was quite young for Neil, now Hilary? No, no no, a thousand times no. Also didn’t he have a one night stand with her mother? If they hook Neil up with this child then I will be switching to another channel whenever they are on. And for the same reasons I don’t want to see her with Jack– make these characters look like dirty old men lusting… Read more »

LOL… i’m sorry that TPTB continually showcase… older – OLD – too old… little men… gallivanting… to and fro.

it’s embarrassing… from a male perspective…. as well

Seriously. KSJ is a better actor than this tripe allows him to demonstrate. How many failed relationships is this character going to rack up? Hilary is obviously NOT “the one” for Neil, though I think she could bring Devon out of his seemingly eternal funk. But, eeew-are we going to have to endure a father/son/(maybe)daughter triangle? AGAIN?

Neil and Hilary appearing on The Price Is Right????? Really????? Are those idiot Y&R writers that damn desperate for storyline material?!?!?! A few years ago, when B&B’s Pam and Donna appeared on TPIR…that actually MADE SENSE!!!!! Pam and Donna were so naturally comical during their TPIR experience…fighting and snapping and sniping at one another the whole and entire time…LOL!!!!! But…as for Neil and Hilary appearing on TPIR…No Thank You. DESPERATE AND DUMB AS HELL!!!!!

Poor Kristoff St. John. This storyline sounds utterly dreadful. Another love triangle with Devon–didn’t that already play out when they both hooked up with the same woman? And as for TPIR–I found it amusing when MAB ripped off her brother-in-law’s storylines, but shouldn’t we be past all that now? Or will Victor and Nikki dress up as King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette and compete for prizes on “Let’s Make a Deal”?

If JFP does the latter, I really deserve some royalties. *cringes at the possibilities*

I can’t be certain, but I suspect these crossovers are more the networks doing than JFP. Of course maybe previous EPs had a spine and told the network no when asked to promote other CBS shows on the soap and JFP doesn’t. Maybe that is why they hired her because she was willing to be a corporate puppet and prostitute the show for cross promotion, including all that basketball talk because CBS is airing the games. But either way I really think it is the network doing this stuff, including the time it happened on B&B. GH did with the… Read more »

Crap like this is harder for me to believe than evil twins and secret cult babies.

Neil and Hillary on a game show, Avery entering a cooking contest, Leslie joining a dating site, (and you know that Colin is going to turn out to be the secret love child of Katherine’s father and Rachel Berenson making him Katherine’s half brother and an heir to her fortune) — new lows for a show that is already near the bottom creatively.

This is as idiotic and self promoting as the time GH put their characters on The Chew. How pointless and boring. Ratings will hit an all time low tomorrow as it looks like this snooze fest will dominate the show.

I just can’t believe that Neil is so chummy with the woman that set out to hurt his daughter! And no Neil wasn’t furious with HillAnn he didn’t seemed phased at all by what she did. Lily and Cane bore the brunt of her revenge and they never even knew her mama! A father that would betray his daughter like this is a disgrace. Neil and Devon fighting over this woman isn’t must see TV.

I actually hope the actors are just leaving the audience wondering about a Neil/Hilary pairing. It would be a bad idea to hook these two up romantically for more reasons than one. I know KSJ wants to remain on Y&R, but it would be horrible to pair him with Hilary. I was actually liking him with Leslie, but they rarely had a story. It also was obvious that Devon and a Hillary were a potential pairing. It would not be interesting in watching father and son fighting over a woman. We’ve seen this before with Tyra. If the writers go… Read more »

I thought TPIR portion was very poorly done. It’s like it was a last minute addition to the script. It was very fast and forced. I’m fast forwarding through a lot of Hilary/Neil scenes. Especially if they continue to talk BB.

I don’t see the problem with Hilary on Price is Right!
So she and Neil are on a business trip, and she gets to
fulfill her lifelong dream of being on that game show.
What is wrong with that?? It is fun. It is real. And added
a twist to the show.

Neil,Kelly,and Jack would be a far better triangle than placing Neil as angst for Devin/Hilary who should be a couple. Neil and Jack’s friendship strained because both are interested in the lovely Kelly. Imagine Peter Bergman and Kristoff squaring off as rivals.

Bryton and Mishael’s onscreen chemistry is electric. I am sorry but I do not see any sparks between Neil and Hilary (now husband and wife). Is it so impossible to write a love story for Devon and Neil with two different women?

Irene Cara, Best-Known For Smash Hits ‘Fame’ and ‘Flashdance… What A Feeling’, Dead at 63

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”
