And now for some more mamma drama! Judith Chapman is set for another return to The Young and the Restless in her role as Gloria Fisher.

That means that we hopefully will see scenes between Chapman and her two on-screen sons, Greg Rikaart (Kevin) and Christian LeBlanc (Michael).

Soap Opera Digest broke the bit of casting news.

Chapman was last seen in the role in 2018 and then headed over to Days of our Lives to play Diana for awhile.

Judith took over the role of Gloria in 2005 replacing Knots Landing favorite, Joan Van Atk.

Glad to hear Judith will be back on our daytime screens? Comment below.

I wish they would bring Jeff along with her but I am happy that she will be in town to mix it up with Michael and Kevin. Y&R is in need of SOME kind of CPR! The show is flatlining!

I haven’t recognized this show for quite a while now.

Agree. B&B is on fire and can’t miss. Y&R is the opposite but I stay tuned in. Gloria will be welcomed back when she arrives in town.

HI Timmm- long time
Perhaps Gloria and Jack will hook-up..
He needs a side.. poor Jack-
he has gone a decade without sex LOL
And– Y&R has become very STINKO BLAH, what happened?

Hi Su000-long time, indeed! Jack needs a younger women who fans the flames and brings excitement! Not just sex, I mean maybe someone out to scheme him and disrupt the Abbott fortune. He and Gloria wouldnt be to interesting now because of all her backhanded behavior. Gloria and Ian Ward would be GOLD!

You may just be on to something! I hear that Kristan Alphonso/ Hope is coming to Genoa City. She might be the right one for Jack. At least she’s closer in age, especially after that young gal they paired him up with last.

Huh? I wonder who she will play? Maybe a recast of Lola’s mom? I liked Jack and her together.

Jack? A decade without sex? Um…Emily, Genevieve, Nikki, Kelly, Phyllis, Kerri….

For some people that’s a lifetime…not a decade!

Oh, SusieQ!!–you kill me!!!!! Is that all you think about ? Sex?? LOL—-I do agree. Jackie-boy must be climbing the walls. Ha!!
I have a great idea—-why not bring back his son, Kemo? He must be in his 50’s by now—-but, TPTB can always ” rejuvenate ” him. I think Christopher Sean (Paul Narita, Sonny Kiriakis’ ex on DOOL) would be perfect!! Great actor —-and so hot!!
At least, there would be some diversity—-go off the monotony of this beaten path —

Suddenly, Amanda is a victim because she misses the sister she never knew. is this where we’re supposed to shed a tear or two?
Also, I must have missed the part where Phyllis had a sister????
There you go, su—–a perfect mate for Jack,

Hi, T—-I so agree with you. I am having a hard time getting back into my favorite show ( Y&R)—there’s no meat on my plate. All the storylines are bland—no flavor, no drama, no passion, no anticipation.
So, I hope Judith, whom I love, brings back that spark and intrigue which the show has lost along the way, and desperately needs.

What do you think of Billy and Lilly? You know its inevitable! I dont mind. I hated her with Cain!

Yes, T—-I do like the idea of Lily and Billy as a couple. For the first time since Thompson joined the Y&R cast, I have finally come to accept nuBilly —he,belongs, per se.
T&T, LOL—Tognoni and Thompson never did it for me—-even their incessant amorous sessions didn’t grab me—-That relation ship sort of turned me off and made me gag—-her brother-in-law?? —same with Victoria. I am yet to get used to the interchangeble bed-partners on soaps.
But, the sexual tension is definitely tangible with him and Lily—–I do hope TPTB are biding their time with these two—-that’s part of the fun.

PS—hey, T—-I wanted to add that Thompson, as Billy is finally showing character—a strong side of it. Good or bad, I don’t take to screwups and wimps much. —-that’s what I saw in Billy.
Thompson managed to take Billy out of that phase and mold him into an adult. with purpose. It remains to be seen what he makes of Billy, the man.

Thats a good observation and I coulndt agree more. One that I am still hung up on though is Adam. I still like Michael Muhney better than any of the others. He just had that inner demon-like quality like Victor has. This current Adam, good actor, but I just dont believe he could take over Newman and be good at it.

I know exactly what you mean, T.—-nuAdam has turned into a drooling misfit with Chelsea as his mother. Grow up—-
Why is he coddled? This storyline is convoluted. And, yes—-no one can walk in Muhney’s shoes in the role of Adam. As twisted as Adam was/is, the viewer couldn’t help but like him—-or at least, come to accept him—-just as it took me a long time to like Victor—-
NuAdam is too young, I think—-It’s hard for me to regard him as a man, husband and father.
Then, there’s Chelsea—I make it no secret that I vehemently dislike her— bad influence—enabling and cradling Adam only stumps his “growth”.
The only story that I like at the moment, is Abby’s and Chance’s. I love them together!! Now, all we need are Nina and Ronan. Imagine the friction—Phyllis, Nick, Ronan–Yeah— appealing…..

OMG, Abby and Chance are royalty!

I’m so thrilled Judith is returning to Y&R, this is fantastic news. I find Y&R boring, especially with Amanda being Hilary’s twin, I am tired of these twin stories, been there done that too many times. Come on Gloria, kick some butt girl!!!

I agree.I for one did not like Hilary. She certainly wasn’t the goddess Devon believes she was. Look what she did to his father, marrying him than taking up with his own son while he was still blind yet! Shame on both of them and isn’t it funny that they never bring that part up of betraying Neil?
At least Valerie seems like a good person. I don’t like the twin part either and Iam pretty sure the whole idea of her twin thing is to break up Devon and his girlfriend.

Best. News. Ever!! We have needed her forever. What great chemistry between Gloria and ck. Peter and Judith bring it…in spades. She has been sorely missed as much as Peter having a romantic story. Please, writing team; do these two goldmines justice!

Lets hope it is permanent and not just a ten-line visit.

They need to get her back permanently! Replace three of the younger, embarrassingly unskilled actors with Judith Chapman.

We need the Baldwins back to the days when they were stirring the pot and scheming from the rest of the uptight genoa city elitists
The Baldwins were always the darkhorse of society
This slapstick routine of kevin and chloe is lame, Michael Baldwin has fine and upstanding and popping in and out of other peoples scenes kissing ass with his goofy grin is complete bullshit and Gloria hitting the sheets with longtime nemisis Jack is out of character
Make them all villians again and in trouble and for heavens sake get some real drama in genoa city again
Josh Griffith is writing this show from a coma it seems! How does he still have a job. Or any job writing is pathetic. It should be illegal for this man to have a job
Watching y n r these days just makes me mad. #fireJoshGriffith

I agree with you Damien. I loved watching the reruns when they had Fisher Baldwin week. It left me wanting so much more. What they are writing now doesn’t compare to the good old days. I started binge watching the 1960’s soap Peyton Place and it is actually better than wbat Y&R is showing now. On a side note, I had a good laugh when Victor and Nick were discussing Kyle and his still being married to Lola. Victor has for kids by three different women, and Nicholas changes women every 5 minutes and they are handing out advice. You gotta love it.

The Baldwin-Fisher week was gold!!!!

About time! I hope it’s for a long time. Y&R needs Gloria.

This is great news, Y&R has been very average in recent weeks. Gloria is a welcome return, perhaps she and Jack can get it together and she could stick around for more than a short stint. This show needs help and Judith returning is a good start.


Oh thank God! I might actually start watching again.

I NO LONGER watch this so called, what they call Y&R, NOT…I said it before and I will say it again, WAKE UP CBS/SONY…but the higher ups haven’t listen to the fans so you know what, I am finished wasting my time in saying anything…this is it for CBS/SONY DO NOT LISTEN…Let me tell you, there will be NO MORE Y&R if you don’t do anything to correct what’s wrong…

Well that’s a reason to try watching Y&R again… at least for Chapman’s scenes. That 5 month break changed nothing. What the eff are the writers doing over there? Y&R is absolutely unwatchable. I have never said that about a soap in 40 years of watching. Haven’t been able to get through a full episode in 2020.

Anne Heche in Her Final TV Performance to Air on ‘All Rise’

It is hard to believe that now one year later, television fans will see the final performance of Daytime Emmy winner, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World).  The talented actress passed away from injuries sustained in a car crash back on August 5th, 2022.

Heche was officially declared ‘brain dead’ on August 12th, when her reps shared that Anne was “peacefully taken off life support.”  Before she passed, Anne taped what would be her final TV acting appearance in her recurring role on the legal drama, All Rise.

The series formerly with CBS and now airing on OWN, will air Heche’s last performance this Saturday, September 30th at 9pm ET/8 pm CT.  On All Rise, Heche plays lawyer Corrine Cuthbert.  Since season 2, Heche has taken on the recurring role. She appeared in six episodes.

In story, Corrine has had a fraught professional relationship with Judge Lola Carmichael played by Simone Missick.  For her final appearance, Heche’s Corrine shows up as part of a trial case.

All Rise dedicated the episode to Heche. As the hour comes to its conclusion, they express: “In Memory of Anne Heche, Our Friend and Wonderful Artist. You Are Missed.”

After this, Heche will star posthumously in the independent movie feature Wildfire: The Legend of the Cherokee Ghost Horse, slated for release in November.

Y&R’s Jess Walton On Why Mamie Irks Jill As Feud Reignites: “It’s Mamie’s Arrogance and How Much She Enjoyed Stepping on Jill’s Toes All These Years”

On recent episodes of The Young and the Restless, viewers learned that Mamie Johnson (Veronica Redd) is back and is actually the new secret investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Mamie told Nate (Sean Dominic) that she is looking forward to watching Jill’s (Jess Walton) head explode when it is finally revealed. Those remarks date back to Jill and Mamie’s longstanding feud and history; when Mamie was the Abbott family housekeeper, and both women had relationships with the late John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).

This current story will feature Jess Walton in an arc that pits her against Veronica Redd, and should delight longtime Y&R viewers who have loved the often catty remarks and fireworks between Jill and Mamie.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Jess Walton spoke about why Jill has such an issue with Mamie. The Daytime Emmy-winning star expressed, “It’s Mamie’s arrogance and how much she enjoyed stepping on Jill’s toes all of these years. Mamie had always been judging Jill who in turn just hated the influence Mamie had with John.  When Jill was married to him, she never felt welcome in her own home.”

Photo: JPI

Walton went on to say on this new storyline development: “As far as she (Jill) is concerned that disrespect is continuing because Mamie bought into Chancellor-Winters without letting Jill know.”

Y&R fans can look forward to more of Jess on-screen in the next few months as she informed SOD, she will be taping scenes in October and November on the top-rated soap opera.

When all is said and done, Jess shared that her Genoa City alter-ego is very clear on just how Mamie gets under her skin: “Mamie was always so damn sanctimonious and hollier-than-thou and that always pissed Jill off. Mamie still knows how to really push Jill’s buttons.”

Check out the flashback scenes below featuring Veronica Redd and Jess Walton that were part of this week’s episodes of Y&R; where Mamie is revealed to be a now major investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Now let us know, are you looking forward to seeing the sparks fly between Jill and Mamie in the coming weeks? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
