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 hot everyone was sweating. I didn’t care for half of the meet and greet in one room and the other down stairs. I know you have to wait in lines awhile, I have been two the AMC events twice and they lines ran smoothly and I got to see more actors.

Wish Sharon was there. I love her she is my favorite. I hope Sharon and Adam get back together

Love Sharon. I am not a fan of Chelsea or Avery . I hope the new writer brings back Sharon and Adam and they raise the baby and find someone else for Dylan and Nick

Great photos, Michael. Thanks from one of your fans. Must have been a great evening.

Here is the story that would save Y&r….. After nick and Avery say Ido, someone from her past comes back to get revenge on…Nick,Avery and Sharon! Yup Matt Clark is Avery’ex and he is out for revenge! Elsewhere in Gc, Victor suffrrs from a heart attack and he leaves all to one child…..

Want 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 are many people who do not eat meat, not to mention lactose intolerance people. The service was terrible, they actually forgot half our table when serving, not to mention the staff was very rude and not helpful at all. For the money we paid for this, I do not feel it was properly run. Not sure I would go again under these same conditions–

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 and an autograph book (that was second class to B&B’s). I doubt if we will ever attend another one.


Mishael Morgan Stars in Hallmark’s ‘Christmas with a Kiss’

The Young and the Restless fan favorite, Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair) is back with yet another holiday film, in which she stars. This Sunday, December 3rd, look for Morgan in Hallmark Channel’s, Christmas With a Kiss (8pm ET/7pm PT).

In the romantic holiday film, Morgan stars a Mona, a New York City social media ambassador who has been rather unlucky in love as of late. Before Christmas, Mona takes a trip to Manhattan and returns to her family’s farm upstate to help her parents prepare for the annual Christmas carnival, founded by her great-grandfather.

According to Sinclair family lore (interesting the last name is “Sinclair” … right, Y&R fans?). one will find everlasting love if they kiss their date under the mistletoe during the carnival’s closing-night dance.

Like clockwork, Mona runs into her ex, Fletcher (Ronnie Rowe Jr.), and old sparks reignite. But wait! Mona has another suitor in Dez (Jamie Callica), a reporter doing a story on the Sinclair family.  Who will Mona ultimately kiss under the mistletoe?

Mishael who resides in both Toronto and Los Angeles, was able to be part of this latest holiday movie near her Canadian backyard as it was shot in Milton, Ontario back in October.

In a recent Instagram post, Morgan shared: “What a fun shoot this was. In the name of Christmas, Don’t miss this one 😆🎄” The actress also just starred in BET’s: Sworn Justice: Taken Before Christmas. One thing is certain, since departing Y&R, Mishael has been in-demand.

Check out a sneak peek of Christmas with a Kiss below. Then let us know, if you hope an Amanda Sinclair visit to Genoa City might be in store next year in 2024, via the comment section.

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang Weighs-In On Hope’s New Attitude: “Brooke is Starting to be Like, ‘Uh-oh! She’s Taking After Me!’ ”

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) has been not pleased with her daughter Hope’s (Annika Noelle) choice in bedfellows! After all, Brooke and Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) have a long history of disdain for each other (although there was that time they took psychedelic berries together and pranced around with not much clothes on).

Hope had divorced Liam (Scott Clifton) and has been getting much closer to Thomas, feeling he is the only man who ‘gets her’ and ‘sees her’ for who she really is.  On recent episodes of B&B, Hope has no problem giving into her desires for Thomas, now that she is no longer Hope Spencer.

Soap Opera Digest spoke with series iconic star, Katherine Kelly Lang to get her take on what she thinks of Hope’s attitude adjustment and recent behavior.

Lang expressed: “She seems to have changed a bit. She’s not the sweet little Hope that she once was and Brooke is starting to be like, ‘Uh-oh! She’s taking after me!’’

Brooke is not happy that Thomas has apparently won over Hope, when she is wary of the guy. Katherine added, “Thomas was stalking her (Hope) and he did all that crazy stuff with the baby. He just hasn’t been good for her, you know, especially when he was totally obsessed with her. So, Brooke doesn’t believe that that’s completely gone, that there’s still got to be some of that in Thomas somewhere and she’s worried about her daughter. So, of course, she would kind of say, ‘This is not good. This is just not a good situation. With all the men in the sea, why, why do you (pick Thomas)?”

However, many might see that as the pot calling the kettle black given how Brooke has often given into her desires with the men in her life and made some pretty bad choices herself!

So, is Hope turning into a ‘mini-Brooke’? Should Brooke continue to warn Hope of Thomas’ past, or should she just mind her own business at this point? Share your comments via the comment section.
