This past Saturday night, fans from all around the globe traveled to the Universal City Sheraton Hotel, in Universal City, California to meet the cast of the number one, The Young and the Restless up close and personal!  The Y&R Fan Club Dinner is held only once every two years.  This being Y&R’s 40th anniversary year on television this gathering was extra special in more ways that one.   On-Air On-Soaps was there as well, taking in all the action.

After being introduced to the adoring crowd one by one, the residents of Genoa City entered the Grand Ballroom and took their place on a staging area, where three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Christian LeBlanc (Michael) hosted a Q&A and gave every cast member a question to answer!  Several VIP’s were in attendance including Y&R co-creator, Lee Phillip Bell, Y&R EP Jill Farren Phelps, and CBS Entertainment Daytime VP, Angelica McDaniel, who also spoke to the fans and took several moments to remember the late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), whose presence was felt.  Peter Bergman (Jack) recalled just how much Jeanne loved the fans and being at each and everyone of the gatherings over the years.   McDaniel then lifted a glass and every one toasted to Jeanne!  And then, the audience was treated to a clip package of Jeanne’s career on Y&R.   It was the emotional point of the night and when we looked out over the audience, we saw many fans wiping away the tears.

In attendance from the Y&R cast were: Robert Adamson, Lamon Archey, Catherine Bach, Lauralee Bell, Peter Bergman, Eric Braeden, Tracey E. Bregman, Steve Burton, Sean Carrigan, Marco Dapper, Doug Davidson, Melissa Claire Egan, Max Ehrich, Michael Fairman, Daniel Goddard, Kelli Goss, Camyrn Grimes, Amelia Heinle, Bryton James, Beau Kazer, Hunter King, Christian LeBlanc, Kate Linder, Beth Maitland, Billy Miller, Mishael Morgan, Michael Muhney, Melissa Ordway, Greg Rikaart, Hartley Sawyer, Melody Thomas Scott, Ignacio Serricchio and Redaric Williams.

After dinner and a look at another clip package of what makes The Young and the Restless one of the most popular daytime soaps in history, fans got their opportunity to get into lines to take pictures and get autographs from their Genoa City favorites.  A special shout to Y&R Fan Club Director, Cathy Tomas for pulling all the elements together!

Now after the jump, take a look at our first look exclusive photo gallery of the 2013 Y&R Fan Club Dinner complete with our extra special captions featuring the stars of the number one daytime drama.

I enjoyed Jeanne’s tribute, and the Y&R clips throughout the years, check in was 4:00 didn’t get into the doors until 4:30 and dinner was at 7:00. They need to make the event earlier, I think maybe more actors would have stayed, I didn’t get to see Mel, she had left.. I saw Eric and Peter bergman but they left too. I was there until midnight and only saw 5 actors. They lines were not organized and nobody making sure they ran smoothly, I had a couple of girls cut in front of me ib Billy’s line.. The rooms were… Read more »

This was my first fan club event. I certainly enjoyed seeing all the stars that were there. However I thought the event was not managed correctly. Lines were way to long, two floors of stars, and no one could tell you who was where– The lines were so long that you didn’t know who’s line you were in. Extremely hot in these areas, and not water was provided to the quest, until we complained. The food was horrible, and I think not thought out at all. How can you can one meal for everybody, The meal was chicken, and there… Read more »

I would have enjoyed this picture montage a lot better had Jill Farren Phelps not been included in the pics! Get that soap killer outta there!

Goodness please AH/Victoria why would you show up to an event looking like that? Why is she still there? Does she not own a hairbrush on or off the set? Can anyone page GinaTognoni to take this role over and run with it. I know she lives in NJ just pay her whatever she wants and I might be excited about the character again. Why MAB got rid of her husband and kept her escapes me!

I miss the music and singing of Leslie Brooks. The big guys at Y&R seem to have forgotten one of the most popular stars from the 70’s.

Thank you Michael for all you do for my favorite Soap. I love the Young and Restless. The pictures were great. Love my Michael Muhney. So handsome and talented. Loved the pic of him with Steve and Melissa. I live in Georgia and just a dream to ever attend one of these events in California. But you and several other fans make us feel like we were there. Thank you once again.

Doesn’t Melissa Egan resemble Kimberlin Brown in her first years as Sheila? It would have been cool if they’d made Chelsea the grown daughter of Sheila and James Warwick. Oh well!

What a horrible event. And the Sheraton Universal never handled a banquet before as the service was also horrible. The Autograph session started an hour late, and yet the main stars left at the required time. It appeared that the hotel wasn’t even starting to set up the autograph event until the meal was over. We attended the “Bold & Beautiful” event the day before at the Farmers Market and that was better organized and received many free gifts PLUS a free bottle of water while standing in line. The Y & R handled out nothing free except a trinket… Read more »

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
