Jon Briddell Slated To Make Y&R Debut As Eric Vanderway

Photo: IMDB

On The Young and the Restless, looks like more intrigue is on the way now that that Theo Vanderway (Tyler Johnson) could be a member of the Abbott clan. The recent revelation discovered by Jack (Peter Bergman) and Traci (Beth Maitland) that their mother, Dina Mergeron (Marla Adams) had a fling with Stuart Brooks which resulted in a child has led the siblings to tell Theo that Jack could be his uncle, and his arch-rival, Kyle (Michael Mealor) could be his cousin.  Jack wants Theo to take a DNA test to which Theo agrees to do; claiming he understands why Dina gave up her baby because she didn’t want to be shamed.

And, it looks like the story gets juicier from there with the slated arrival of the character of Eric Vanderway late next week on the CBS Daytime drama series.  Enter actor, Jon Briddell who has been cast in the role.  But who is Eric to Theo?

Originally, Theo claimed his father was dead.  Is that a fabrication, or will we learn more of the Vanderway back-story and how it ties into the Abbotts through flashbacks … or could Eric come to town with Intel about the true parentage of Theo?

Briddell once appeared for a short time on All My Children, but has had a successful primetime career appearing in series including: Fashion House, Army Wives, American Crime Story, and Doom Patrol.

So, what do you think is the connection of Theo and Eric Vanderway? Could these two be duping the Abbotts, or is Theo the real deal? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

My goodness they just get more stupid over there as the days keep going I thought they had stopped this nonsense after MY left ? If they are saying this Eric is Dina’s son he would have to be older then Jack and this actor is 51.

Shouldn’t Eric Vanderway be olderthan Jack? Late 60s? Also,if you’re going to go there with this story shouldn’t the Brooks sisters be involved?

This would be a GOLDEN opportunity to re-focus on the Genoa City Chronicle, the newspaper helmed by Stewart Brooks, and bring Lori Brooks back to the show on a permanent basis. Have Lori reappear as the CEO of a family publishing company (explaining that she had been building her father’s interest into a media empire while she was off-screen) and, learning of the existence of Theo, decides its a prime opportunity to refocus her effort on the Chronicle, which like most newspapers, has been struggling and to bring him into the family business. This would make sense since you could… Read more »

Jost needs to go, he’s is stupid, to let go Gina T for Michelle S was he’s biggest mistake and to those at CBS who let him are just as dumb! Gina T made Y&R awesome with her great acting and skills. The show as gone to craps since summer, dumb dumb dumb, bring back Gina

Gotta have a laugh on Jack. He is an overkill of wussy, he is beyond sniffy… Poor Jack, he is so jello, no wonder Victor has had Jack under his heel since day one. Jack and Tracy, both, have become quite annoying. and this supposedly ”mystery” is lacking intrigue, drama, and suspense. the 3 things of a great mystery. It will be fun to watch Jack get his hinny handed to him, once again, and he will be handed it.. [ Gullible Jack ] GO Theo ! put some life into this sappy sleeper. Theo will be the only spark.… Read more »

OMG, Theo thinks/says his father is dead. Are Eric and Theo really related or are they con- men out to get the Abbott fortune? I hate Theo, and wouldn’t trust him until I saw the DNA. This Eric guy at only 53 , is way too young to be Jack’s OLDER brother. I wish they could make these SL more believable, but the writers just keep shoveling the stuff at us, and we are supposed to accept it all without question,

Keep bitching and it won’t just be Josh who leaves. Y’all have been bitching about every writer for the past 8 or so years. TPTB will be putting their heads together and start looking for a game or talk show to replace y&r since they are unable to please viewers. I say keep quiet and see what happens, not just with this s/l but with all of them. Y&R is still the best show left but it will be gone in a blink.

If what we’ve seen on Y&R in the last decade is the “best show left,” that is a very sad comment about the current situation with these shows. I also don’t think the cancellation of Y&R would be sudden, or to use your term, “in a blink.” I spent decades watching Y&R and ATWT. For over 5 years before ATWT was cancelled, I remained a loyal viewer even though the quality of what was on the air was horrible. I did not enjoy what I watched. Rather than relishing ATWT, my loyalty to the show began to feel like a… Read more »

I totally disagree. You have the option of NOT turning on the TV. Why wish it gone for those of us who need an hour a day to escape with Y&R? Just turn it off, be happy, and let the rest of us enjoy it. Soaps are in a constant state of flux. It will change over time. Fans need to relax and enjoy, and support soaps.

I totally disagree with your observation. If you read my post, I do NOT (to use your word) “wish” Y&R gone. I am lamenting that the quality of the show has been so poor for so long (over a decade). After that span, I think it is unlikely that (to use your phrase) “will change over time.” You like it. I loved it in the past and, due to its decline over the past decade, loyally tolerate it these days. We have different opinions on the show. Neither is right; neither is wrong. You’re entitled to your view. I’m entitled… Read more »

I’m thinking that Eric Van Der Way’s scenes will all be in the past, before his death. It will allow for story to go back a decade prior to when Kyle and Theo were hanging in NYC in the elite partying crowd. It makes room for Theo to have his mother’s role enter the picture, and possibly become a love interest for Jack. Would love for it to be Beth Chamberlin (pretty please!!!). And it allows for the age difference between Eric and Jack to be realistic. Seems that Y and R may be attempting a bit of This Is… Read more »

I don’t like this. They have really made Dina to be a tramp. How many times did she cheat on John?

I was hoping Theo would just be a temporary character. I find him to be uber annoying. Hopefully he is not related. I’m sure there is more than one Eric Vanderway in the world.

the halloween show was a disaster, the Theo character could be interesting if they keep from making him a cartoon

Y&R is writing its own ending and it’s not a good one. The Halloween episode was terrible.

It was 100% superior to any other soap on Halloween. If you want a fantasy murder fest, try DOOL. Y&R was pleasantly refreshing.

What gets me is the way they are making Kyle look. I agree with his reservations and distrust of Theo, who knows him better than anyone. I know Kyle can be a primadona , but now even Lola is seemingly taking Theo’s side and making Kyle look like a schmuck. I guess we need Summer back for him to commiserate with. I think her love and loyalty lie with Kyle.

B&B’s Kimberlin Brown Shows How-To Do The Sheila ‘Makeover’

Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, brought with it a very much alive and in disguise Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown).

While smart B&B viewers knew there was no way a bear ended the life of Sheila, and that she would return to the canvas to cause more trouble, no one quite knew how she would integrate herself into society to not get caught by the police for her crimes.

Now donning a red wig, some facial prosthetics and a new sexy wardrobe, Sheila tested out her transformation on a tipsy Deacon (Sean Kanan), who had too much to drink.  Next thing you know, the two ‘strangers’ have sex.  Does Deacon really not know its Sheila?

Meanwhile, Kimberlin Brown posted a video on her Instagram of just how the B&B make-up and hair team came up with Sheila’s new look.

The actress expressed: “#behindthescenes #transformation #sheila goes red! Thanks you @danmakesstuff and @tinsleystudio for the wonderful #prosthetics and of course the wonderful Chris Lia Johnson #makeup @stephpaughhair for her #wig work! What a great #team

You can watch the time-lapsed video below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Sheila’s new look? How will B&B incorporate Sheila’s disguise for the next leg of her storyline to still be a part of Finn’s (Tanner Novlan) life? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
