Wow! He looks like Poldark, Aidan Turner!

HE DOES! Not that I have ever watched that series but I heard great things.

It’s fantastic. If you have OnDemand see if you can catch up. It’s worth it!

Well, she is 53. A great looking 53 but still….

IRL Tracey has a 25-year-old son.

Not so young, Kalle. Amelia Heinle has a 21-year-old son. She’s only 43, so…….

Chris

Amelia will turn 44 in 2 days, she was born March 17, 1973 🙂 She has son named August, from her first marriage to Michael Weatherly. She was 22 when she got married, she was 23 when her son was born and she was 24 when they got divorced 🙁

Top secret storyline? I can only hope that means it involves the return of either Sheila Carter or Drucilla Winters…

SHEILA PLEASE!!!!!

Addison

No thank you to Shelia!!! She’s had more returns than Macy’s.

Didn’t Sheila most recently have plastic surgery to look like Michelle Stafford? lol. Phyllis?

Verlene

No! No more Shelia. Anyway, I thought they killed her off.

Claudio

Terrific news,. Alan yes I agree with you time to bring back Sheila Carter, Drucilla Winters and Nina Webster. That would make my day.

Celia
Celia

I agree, Claudio. But, how will they manage to bring Sheila back?
I can understand bringing back Drucilla and make it plausible and credible. She went over that infamous cliff ( I wonder if it is the same fatalistic cliff from which Hilary toppled? LOL), buther body was never retrieved.
I would love having Nina back, with both her sons, my friend!!!! If only…..

Celia
Celia

Something very curious, Claudio….I was watching a rerun of ‘Diagnosis Murder’ and coincidentally “Sheila”/Kimberlin was the guest-star, interacting with ‘ Drucilla’/Victoria.
I had almost forgotten what incredible talents they both are!!!!

Joel
Joel

That would be a dream come true!

Nikki

Sheila died a few times in Y & R and again in Bold & Beautiful. Drucilla would probably have to be a recast as the one who played her is suing Y & R.

James R. Poissa to

This better mean that Sheila is coming back. For one thing, I still think her supposed demise was horse picket since she and Lauren would have had the catfight to end all catfights. Getting shot came across as lame. Let’s not forget Daisy got out of the institution because her “mother” got her out. That told me back then Sheila is still around. Maria Arena Bell was going to bring Kimberlin Brown back but she got fired before that story could be told so when Jill Darren Phelps came on, she scrapped Maria’s stories. It’s time we got closure to the Sheila/Lauren story the right way.

Addison
Addison

I do NOT want Shelia back.

Timmm

Sheila would have to be a recast to since she ended up on the wrong side of Hollywood’d “Wall!”

Addison
Addison

Timm, I do not want Shelia back period, it has nothing to do with the actress who plays her but more to do with boring redundancy. I was not a Shelia fan and this feeling of mine started long before her RNC appearance.

Rhonda
Rhonda

NO, to Sheila! She has out lived all of her nine lives. I never enjoyed her.
One of the things I most hated about this character is that Lauren seemed to have no story if Sheila was not tormenting her.
Lauren has made a glorious come back and she’s done it all on her own and it has nothing to do with Shelia or with a man.
In the spirit of the late and great Mary Tyler Moore, I will say that “she just might make it after all.”

Nice looking man! Is he for Phyllis or Sharon?

Can they re-cast Chance next? Genoa City should have a living Phillip Chancellor, and another guy , a touch younger than Scotty will be. Chance could be paired with Hillary to annoy Jill & Devon, or Chloe, Abby, Summer, Chelsea, or Mariah.

Nikki
Nikki

I agree he is a good looking guy but I think he should get his hair trimmed a bit. I think the guy who plays Victoria’s son Reed is good looking as well but I guess the longer hair is in style. I would just like to see a little more of the face. JMO

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

At least Reed is the right age, but this guy doesn’t look any younger than Lauren.’ Couldn’t find his age anywhere, his best kept secret.

Soapluv2010
Soapluv2010

Phyllis and Sharon have daughters old enough for him. Maybe Abby, Summer, Hillary, Lily, Chelsea or, Mariah.

Nikki
Nikki

No please it looks like Summer may be on a vacation or busy with her other show. Please let her stay there.

ALEXA
ALEXA

Please do not even whisper the dreaded name of “summer” because I never want to see her again in GC… Scott looks like he is a tad older than Billy, Daniel and Kevin so he is probably age appropriate for Lauren who was a young first time mother… Lauren is only a tad older than Phyllis… I would love to see Scott with Mariiah A at least for a while!

Verlene
Verlene

I agree, He looks as old as Lauren and I voul not find his age. Please let Summer stay whereever she is. I would like to ser Frucilla come back and jookup with Neil. Neil needs a storyline.

randyy
randyy

great to see some old characters coming back to life and the family tress getting there leaves back,
ive hated how y and r over the years has forgotton so much hystory,,
would love philip to return to the show and have the gay storyline written well and informative ,,,they past regimes really played and ruined storyline hystory , it would be great tohave the new team flush this character out,,,,maybe philip and scotty the next super couple,,,just saying

Jimmy
Jimmy

Phillip and Scotty are related; Phillip is Jill’s son and Scotty is Jill’s nephew, so they’re cousins. They can’t be paired romantically

randy
randy

yes but apparently they are un doing jill being a fenmore

Liza
Liza

They should write that story then, because watching the connection be ignored on screen is frustrating in this Fenmore story. The last story was that Jill owns 50% of Fenmores and is Lauren’s sister. Noe Lauren’s in this huge crisis and not speaking to, or mentioning, Jill at all. How stupid.

Addison
Addison

Has anyone else noticed that for the last year or so Victoria has been picking up the same stuffed animals in her living room?
Toddlers do not play with stuffed animals, they sleep with them.
What she should be picking up are Leggos, dolls, games, etc….

Addison
Addison

It is great, Feeling Randy, however, there is an influx of male characters and not enough female characters.
GC is turning into Alaska as far as the male/female ratio is concerned.

Judy
Judy

Wow good news who was is father and I just cant recall

Alan
Alan

His father was Scott Grainger, Cricket’s half-brother. After the whole baby switch, Scott was diagnosed with a terminal illness but before he died he revealed to Lauren that he’d known Sheila Carter hadn’t died in the farmhouse fire and begged Lauren to give Sheila a second chance and move on with her own life.

Mr. X
Mr. X

Nice. Always like seeing returns with ties to legacy characters. After being banished by Chuck Pratt, it’s great to see Lauren being featured again. I’m enjoying her business story and her mixing it up with Phyllis, Jack, and Gloria.

clh

New many for Phyllis? LOL

Kevin C

Looking forward to Scott coming back to Genoa City.

Jenny

Go figure! Hiring a legacy character with ties to the canvas and ripe with potential!! That hasnt been done so long on soaps I forgot how good it felt!! Keep up the good work Sally!!

Timmm
Timmm

Okay good but where are the Chancelors? THAT along with the Newmans and Abbotts are the heartbeat. Now, I love Michael and Lauren but we need the core back. Jeanne died but the others are still floating out there. Bring back the original Tucker, start a love triangle between him, Jill and Colin. Oh, and have Tucker put Devon over his knee and whoop his azz!

Jimmy
Jimmy

I agree, I think Tucker should be recast and brought back. I would also like to see Brock back in town, and maybe Michael E. Knight can return to the show and play him. That would be a real treat.

It would also be nice to see Chance, Mac, Daniel and Heather back. The 20-30 age group needs to be buffed up. I wouldn’t mind seeing Hilary kick the can, she’s hard to tolerate, and Devon needs to be saved from what’s been done to his character.

Celia
Celia

I know that Beau Kazer( Brock) died, Jimmy. But, I’m not sure if Brock, the character died, as well. Did he? I think he did because I remember Mac being heartbroken. I was so young, I may be wrong.
But, I would love to have him and his daughter back. However, I will only welcome the original Mac, Ashley Bashioum.

Addison
Addison

Erika Slezak should come back as Katherine’s long lost younger sister….or sister-in-law. She could perhaps play Phil Chancellor’s long lost younger sister coming to town to claim to what she thinks is rightfully hers. I would love to see her battle Jill and Ester in the Chancellor mansion.

Ghlover
Ghlover

From your keyboard to Sally’s ear PLEASE!

Celia
Celia

You got it, Timmmy. To me, Mac will always be the rightful heiress.
Catherine must be rolling in her grave, non-stop, knowing that her billions are being wasted on this weakling, Devon.
Never trust a femme fatale with your money…. My father’s philosophy, that is. LOL.
That’s exactly what Devon did. “Divan” is something on which we sit. When I see Devon, I automatically think of a sofa.

Timmm
Timmm

An uncomfortable sofa!

Mister Media

Great! Y&R is going from strength to strength. Good move!

Mo

How old is Scott?

I didn’t watch when the character was previously on.

Jimmy
Jimmy

Considering they SORAS’d the character, Scotty would be in about the same age group of Chloe/Kevin/Mariah/Devon/Hilary.

Celia
Celia

I don’t think that Chloe and Kevin are in the same age group as Mariah, Devon and Hilary, Jimmy. I know Mariah is only in her mid-twenies, or so.
Chloe and Kevin are hitting 40.
Scotty is supposedly 33—-
Sometimes the chronological order of the characters’ ages makes no sense. It’s a soap!!!!

Celia
Celia

Sorry. I do believe I misspoke. Scotty was born in 1991. But, as I said, age becomes irrelevant in soaps.

Iakovos

To be honest, I forgot Lauren had this son!!! See what all the crazy years have done to our Genoa City families. So mixed up and scattered! I like that Lauren’s place in town is more secure and focused. Miss Bregman has been a treat to watch as Lauren (even when the plot lines do her no favors) for many years. And this character has an aunt in Christine Williams. Maybe we can see some friendships grow among Scott, Noah, and other young guns. Also, I wonder if this the focus on Fenmore will lead to correction of the wrongheaded plot that made Lauren and Jill sisters.

Y&R is making some positive moves and I find myself watching more and watching more thoughtfully.

Michael Andrews

Wow, this casting was a bit of a surprise. I had no idea that the show was even considering bringing Lauren’s son back after 11 years.

SZima
SZima

Is this for a long term role?
If not, who cares who his “love interest” will be?
Since I wasn’t watching when this character was around before, I don’t know if I am interested in him or not!
This actor does look a little old to be Lauren’s son.

toscanti

This is Awesome News! I’m LOVING Y&R with the new writing regime. The respect to the shows history is amazing. Bringing this character back to the canvas will open so many opportunities. I wish they would consider bringing the character of “Ronan” (Jeff Branson) back for “Phyllis” (Gina Tognoni). Just a thought.

Rebecca

This is wonderful news, lets hope he can act. The long hair needs to go, but he is a good looking man.

I was gonna say! Thanks for the clarification Rebecca 1!

OMG How many times can Sheila die?

I think he could be a potential love interest for Mariah… depending on age, maybe.

Addison

OH, I am loving this idea/

Mark Y

I’ve only been watching 10 or 12 years.

Can someone tell me who Lauren has been married to and who her children are? I know of two. Scott and Fenn.

Thank you!

Celia
Celia

Hi, Mark,
I haven’t watched for much more than you have, Mark. Half my life, actually, LOL.
But, from what I heard, Lauren was a naughty girl…
I know she was married to Paul Williams? She also married Scott’s father twice and now Michael. There may have been other marriages, but my grandmother does not believe so, albeit she has had a trillion and a half affairs, ( not my grandmother; Lauren). LOL.

Jenny
Jenny

Those are her only kids. Lauren was a big ho. Scott…Paul…Danny….Jack…Brad…Eric Forrester…I know I am missing at least one.

Jenny
Jenny

Then there were those twins….Rush and Johnny….played by Anthony Addabbo who recently passed away. Then there was that psycho Shawn…cant remember if Lauren actuslly spresd for him. And her bartender boink Carmine. Wow Lauren…..she needs to settle her kettle!!

Nikki
Nikki

When they brought Daniel back a few months ago I loved seeing him with Mariah. I was hoping he’d stick around. Being Kevin’s best friend I think it would have been so interesting to see Kevin’s reaction. As for Scott I hope he’s paired with Mariah. She really needs a relationship.

Celia
Celia

Yes, Nikki. I liked Mariah and Daniel together, as well.
This guy is really good-looking. Who will be his love interest? It’s not as if there’s that much of a choice. LOL.

Now, more intersestingly is the return of Dylan. I was under the impression, this would have been it…..but, here he is.
So, he will leave incognito….get plastic surgery to erase any trace of Dylan/Derek and return when the time is right ( that is, if this character will still be visible). Will Sharon go with him?

Celia
Celia

Viable, not visible.

Timmm
Timmm

I hope they bomb the coffee shop with him, Hillary, Summer, Fake Red , Fake Billy, Devon and Cane in it!

Celia

@Ghlover.
Huh? What possibilities. From where I’m standing, you only give one possibility. Make Reed gay. Sure it’s possible, but I’m with Jenny: why?

Timmm
Timmm

Never cared for Daniel BUT him and Mariah hit it off and I was hoping he would reconsider and stay!

Chaz
Chaz

They could team him up with Noah who has has dismal luck in the love department…

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Yea, what ever happened to his little Latin seniorita? Can’t remember her name.

Chad
Chad

Please, Sally, let this be an LGBT story line revolving around Scott. I had so hoped when Reed was brought back that he was going to be gay. What is Y&R’s hangup with this? It is 2017, and your gay fans are waiting to see Genoa City reflect the real world. If anyone can write a poignant, powerhouse gay story, it’s Sally.

Timmm
Timmm

Y&R is #1. They dont have to appease fans, they have to appease sponsors. Not saying its right, just reporting how the network feels. They are still afraid of losing the grandmas and highly religious folks.

Ghlover
Ghlover

A well done coming out story for Reed isnstill very possible. Well done, it could reach all different people. Religious parents have gay children too you know. They might like to see how Victoria would handle this. Would she be supportive? Would she be angry at her son ? At herself, for her reaction? Would Billy be able to bring them together? How would Victor react? You see… so many possible things

Jenny
Jenny

Reed was just seen making out with a blonde girl! Quit trying to make a straight 15 year old gay!! Go to OutTV or cable or internet porn for that. And no I am not homophobic. Let us not forget that Adam did some pitching back in the day! Make Aram gay and really rock the show!

Celia
Celia

Oh, Jenny…..I am not homophobic either……I have talked about Adam pretending to be gay, ad nauseam. It was a bust.
Besides, I don’t think Y&R wants to go there, again. They tried with Rafe, remember? I really liked that character. But, the storyline fizzled and he disappeared.

Timmm
Timmm

I DONT care what anyone chooses to do with their love life BUT come on, the kid is fifteen Chad! SOME guys who watch Y&R watch it for the wrong reason! Justin Hartley is super hot BUT he is not gay, watch the damn show for the character and the story line!

I hope this means Kimberlin Brown is coming back, I love Sheila’s stories!

Exciting news DAYS fans, those rumblings were true! Judith Chapman will be playing the trouble-making Leo Stark’s (Greg Rikaart) mother on Days of our Lives.  And that reunites Chapman with Rikaart as mother and son.

As soap fans know, they played Gloria and Kevin Fisher on The Young and the Restless for many years together.  Now they will be playing a new mother/son dynamic duo in Salem. But, just what kind of twisted relationship might they have, since Leo has given clues that she was a bad mom?

Chapman confirmed her arrival on the Salem scene in a tweet today, stating “And I don’t have to keep the secret either Mitch Sandusky! What a GREAT way to start 2019… More articles to come in TV Guide Magazine and Soap Opera Digest… and to be reunited with my TV son.

Diana will have a past with John Black (Drake Hogestyn), which could cause trouble for John and Marlena’s wedded bliss.

So, excited to know Judith will once again tear up the soap-screen, but this time back on DAYS? Comment below.

Broadway Legend Carol Channing Dies At 97; B&B Remembers Her Time On The Soap

The beloved and iconic star Carol Channing has passed away at age 97.  Best known for her performance as Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly, the Tony Award-winning actress also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and was nominated for an Academy Award for it as well, throughout her enduring career.

Reports on Tuesday detail that Channing died at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.

While Channing did so much in her illustrious career, she also appeared as herself back in 1993 on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  That’s when the Forresters staged a celebrity-filled fashion show with plenty of glitz.

In a tweet with a photo of B&B’s enduring star, John McCook (Eric Forrester) pictured with Channing, the daytime drama shared: “All of us at mourn the loss of our friend, the legendary star, . She was a true original and there will never be anyone like her. Ms. Channing appeared as herself on B&B in 1993. May she rest in peace.”

Channing’s performance as a diamond-loving showgirl, Lorelei Lee, in the Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes back in 1949 made her a star.  Marilyn Monroe would play the role in the film adaptation.

Later in her TV career, she appeared on numerous shows including: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Love Boat, Touched by an Angel and several game shows, to name just a few.
