The Young and the Restless star Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) and his ex-wife Mia are in the news again regarding the tragic events of the death of their son Julian back in November of 2014.   According to TMZ, St. John is suing the facility where his son committed suicide – La Casa Psychiatric Health Facility in Long Beach, CA -for giving Julian access to the plastic bag he used to kill himself.

One of the key reasons St. John is filing the suit is that the actor claims that Julian did the exact same thing less than 3 weeks before his death when he attempted to asphyxiate himself with a trash bag from his room.  In the wrongful death suit, Kristoff says after that failed attempt the hospital never removed the trash bags from his room.

Even more upsetting is Kristoff revealed in his claim: that there is evidence of the nurses falsifying records and that Julian was supposed to be checked on every 15 minutes because he was a high suicide risk, but records show reveal that checks never happened on time.

Kristoff feels the hospital was completely negligent and stated that had the staff acted with even the slighted regard for Julian’s safety, “he would still be alive today.”

In addition after the jump, watch Kristoff and Mia on Tuesday’s night edition of Entertainment Tonight talking about the lawsuit with ET host Kevin Frazier.  Then, share your thoughts on this developing story below as Kristoff seeks justice for his son Julian.

We had to watch my father in laws care twenty four seven ! Sorry but this is the way of the world today unless you keep them in your home or on top of it twenty four seven this is what happens. I am very sorry for your loss but this facility had a terrible reputation! It is a terrible burden on families who deal with mental illness unless you go thru it you have no idea what is going on!

I agree the substitute..no matter how much you watch and love and give..a loved one could be anywhere..even home..and if they want to go..they find a way to..even fifteen minutes can be too late..removing all objects yet letting other patients have said objects the person knows..it’s heartbreaking but in situations of mental health..there is no blame to be laid…I hope Kristoff realizes he didn’t fail his son…mental health is not parental failure..it’s just a fact of life.

Hi, Aria.
I watched the segment also. And, there I was, crying along with them. Everyone feels their pain. No one wants to experience that anguish….that vise around one’s heart.

But, for those of us who have lost a child, for whatever reason, the pain is not only felt, but also shared. We identify with it. Each time I hear anything even close to this kind of tragedy, my wound opens a little wider.
We may put a band-aid on it….but, the wound never heals.

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
