The Young and the Restless made a very safe casting move, following Donny Boaz (Chance) testing positive for the coronavirus.

Boaz revealed the news via his Instagram stating: “I have a little news to share.  A few weeks ago, I tested positive for COVID 19. Thankfully, I did not have any symptoms. In following guidelines, I quarantined at home so you may not see me on Y&R for a bit. I’m happy to say I’ve returned to work and will be back on the air very soon. Thank you for your continued support.”

Enter Justin Gaston! The actor is married to Y&R actress, Melissa Ordway (Abby) who is involved in a romantic storyline with Boaz’s Chance.

Gaston, who previously appeared on Days of our Lives as the original Ben Weston stepped in for Boaz while he was self-quarantining and will be seen on the top-rated CBS daytime drama.  Look for Justin be on-screen as Chance beginning next week on the November 23rd episode.

So I am sure that the new Chance and Abby will be having love scenes since they are married in real life, only to have to go back to social distancing once the original returns. Why can’t they just have frequent testing so they can shoot love scenes and be more intimate?

Yes Richard, why can’t the state of California use more tests that are in short supply on tv stars so you can watch them make out?

Not going to lie, this is VERY exciting to me. I like Donny Boaz’s work as Chance Chancellor, however, I have always liked Justin Gaston’s acting, as well. Though, would have loved to have seen Mark Lawson (Dustin, General Hospital) cast in the role, as well, especially if Emme Rylan’s exit from GH turns out to be true.

Meh. Emme may be leaving GH, but I highly doubt Y&R wants her back. I think they’re very happy with Melissa’s portrayal of Abby. I certainly like Melissa much better than Emme!
I’ve never likes Emme as Lulu either. No one can beat JMB as Lulu!!
Not sure what the rumor is about Emme leaving GH, but I’d be surprised if that happens.

0ooohhh Justin Gaston is hot-
I would take him home with me.
Lookers like him shouldn’t be married
they should spread joy among women 🙂

Y&R peoples are 6 feet apart- looks weird.
Not so with GH .. it’s way more real.

No offense to the current Chance, but I would take Justin on a perm basis
The current Chance plays more like a cowboy then a Chancellor
And maybe having Melissa Ordways real life husband would ignite more spark and the show could actually film love scenes like Devon and Elena( together also in real life)
Justin seems more suited for the role in anycase seeing his previous work
Also Melissa finally shone in her scenes in the hospital room ,Its taken her forever but shes finally showing chops.

I didn’t like Justin on Days. I’m hoping I’ll like him better on Y&R. So is Justin going to film the wedding scenes?

Justin is absolutely adorable, look at that hair and eyebrows, etc.but I don’t much remember him as Ben Weston. Was he playing the part when he used to come into Sonny’s coffee house and the new bar later?

Um…can he stay? Danny Boaz always looked way too different from the original Chance for my liking.

Sporadic longtime viewer. Was just beginning to settle in with Boaz to be confused when turning on my recording this evening. Not to be condescending to any other actors, but he stood out from the usual. I also found a certain chemistry between that Chance and Abby. Apologies to her “real husband.” Haven’t watched the program yet, but was so surprised had to see what happened. Should have guessed. Hope all stay or get well.

PS: Agree, Abby has been “Knocking it out of the ballfield.”

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.
