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 »

Her bravery for always standing in her truth, spreading her message of love and acceptance, will continue to have a lasting impact.”

Heche is legally dead according to California law, although her heart is still beating she has not been taken off life support in order to allow for organ donations to take place and to find the right recipients.

Anne’s eldest son, Homer 20, said in a statement to PEOPLE on his mom’s passing:  “My brother Atlas and I lost our Mom. After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

The talented actress is best-known to soap opera fans for her Daytime Emmy-winning dual roles as twins, Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World.  She had two sons, Homer with her ex Coley Laffoon and Atlas, 13, with actor James Tupper.

Throughout her career Heche appeared on TV shows and films includingL Men in Trees, If These Walls Could TalkDonnie BrascoI Know What You Did Last SummerSix Days, Seven Nights, and Gus Van Zant’s 1998 remake of Psycho. Back in 2020, Anne became a celebrity contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

Heche’s stormy relationship with Ellen DeGeneres made headlines throughout her career, and today, DeGeneres shared: “This is a sad day. I’m sending Anne’s children, family and friends all of my love.”

Michael Fairman chatted with Anne back in 2020, in a memorable conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel touching upon her career start on Another World, being a champion for the LGBTQ community, her relationship with DeGeneres, the ups and down in her career, and her demons and childhood past.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.
