Good for her!
She is young and needs to grow and find life outside of a dead-end soap career…

Melissa / Chelsea was put with a horrible no chem terrible match, Nick.
They never belonged together and putting Chelsea with the snoozer Nick killed her character.

After Adam was gone Chelsea was dead in the water just floating around.
It would have been a whole different story IF Adam had been recast.

I wish Melissa a great future and she made the right move to get out while still young.

I thought Victor for the money; return for Cholie. Never quite felt OK with Chelsea and Nick.

I always record, and don’t know what I think right now.

As one who had a mother with Alzheimer’s Disease and one who severed on the Board in our area, the coverage was somewhat accurate; not for those with no funds. It is a can be terrifying for those with money as well as those without.

For now, I have had no indications that Nick was the father of Adam’s baby. It has been so long perhaps I have that backwards.

I do like the flowers and set improvements.

Too much kissy, kissy with Billy and his most recent.

Not uncomfortable yet, but Victoria’s return of her husband could change that. I am glad it is not drugs.

Thanks all!

Great post, Tani….speaking f not feeling the thing for Nick and Chelsea as a couple, many of us felt the same…
By the same token, I feel no connection between nuPhyllis and nuBilly…
Actually, I felt the same when Joshua and Michelle Stafford were together….she was best with Ronan, and eorst with Jack……He’s not that great eith anyone….
…..which brings me to this: I love Michelle, always have, ….want to put that out first!!!!….she was the perfect Phyllis—authentic….redeemed, but still had her little devious nuances, which were soooo her!!!
So, for nuPhyllis to go off on Chelsea as a fraud?…. kind of leaves my ears ringing.
Billy says, ( paraphrasing)….”you are accusing Chelsea of outright fraud…”…..where Phyllis answers…..” well, she’s done it before…”!!!!! HUH?!?!?!?! Really????? I have a loooong memory.
I guess TPTB have conveniently ‘forgotten’ how “bad” Phyllis truly was in her heyday!!! Calling the kettle black much?!
I have not liked Chelsea since Adam left…..not Melissa’s fault !!!! I hope she finds what she’s looking for…..great address; simply not used to her full potential.

Remember;

Marisa Sierras/ Sofia Pernas ..
Noah and Marisa..
She has starring role in tv series ‘The Brave’
She is – Sofia Pernas as Hannah Archer, a former operative turned analyst at the DIA.
It’s been renewed,,

Just to say, actors exiting the Y&R have done well for themselves.
Hoping Melissa Claire Egan does as well ..

Cody

Wow
And just when your story is finally getting exciting with the money thing!

Celia

Hi, Cody,
I think the ‘money thing’ is part of her exit…..only an ending story, per se. A means to an end.

So far no one has mentioned that it may have been Chole’s stash ..

Celia

@su0000.
That’s a very good point, SuzieQ. And, no, my mind did not go there. Where could she have gotten her hands on that much money?

Fanny

@CeeCee’s right and so is Su000

Ron

I thought Victor offered it to her as “hush” money about Christian’s paternity.

Celia
Celia

@Rom.
Hi, Ron,
Anything is possible…..TPTB, probably, don’t even know themselves, yet.

Ron
Ron

We shall see, my friend. But I think you hit it on the head– it’s some sort of getaway cash fund. I think she’s had guilt over keeping Christian’s paternity from Nick, will spill the beans, get tossed out, and leave. All will be answered in three episodes, not three months because that’s the way the show now works (which doesn’t work for me at all.)

Celia
Celia

@Ron.
Yeah, Ron…it will be a fast exit. Chelsea has been planning this for a while….” The Great Escape”, LOL.
She may feel guilt about the baby; but, I still think Christian is, actually, Nick’s. I don’t trust Victor …..could never trust him.
The possibility that Adam is alive is viable, I think.
Chelsea and Connor will go to him….and, they will all return as re-casts. How’s that?
As you say, my friend….we shall see….

Timmm

BINGO!

Jimmy

I’ve always liked Chelsea but at times she felt like an awkward piece of the Genoa City puzzle that they tried to make fit and it didn’t work. She was fantastic with both Michael Muhney and Justin Hartley, and Chelsea/Adam was always one of my favourite couples. Melissa is a great actress and I’m sure she’ll make it big in primetime, just like Justin did. Who knows, maybe she’ll wind up on This is Us soon!

As for Chelsea, I’m glad the door is being left open for her return. Hopefully if they ever bring her back, Adam will be back too. And it looks like with both Chelsea and Scott gone, the writers are going back for a Nick/Sharon pairing again. Will “Shick” stick this time? Probably not.

Cathy
Cathy

Yes I agree. I liked Chelsea with Adam but I never liked her with Nick. If Y & R really wanted her to stay, they would of made her an offer to stay. There was no one left to pair her with. She and Billy Miller had a great chemistry. I can understand why she wanted to leave. I wish her the best of luck in her future. I am sure she will one day return to Y & R as most soap actors do. I can not wait for the Shick reunion. They deserve to be together. I would like Nick and Sharon to get involved in a real big storyline. Disappointed that MM won’t be coming back.

Celia
Celia

Agreed, Jimmy…..chelsea has eorn her seat out, as it were….
I think she is the Chelsea2 online scammer….maybe that’s where the money is coming from.
And, speaking of puzzles whose pieces don’t fit? How about the Cane-Lily, stomach churning scenes?I wish Cane would leave ….I am about to barf …..can’t take the idiotic scenes a’ la parisienne…..this couple does not connect with me….never has…

Fanny

@CeeCee
Morning Sweets, can’t agree w/ you more…Cain needs to
take an extended trip to Japan, introduce his newly born
son to his grandfather. I’ve had enough of him to last a
lifetime.

Candy Cane would send a diabetic into shock with all that sweetness towards Lilly! ENOUGH!

Celia
Celia

@Timmm.
Candy Cane, my T? HaHaHaHaHa!!!! I love it !!!!! I’ve been FF-ing their scenes….TPTB are making a fool out of Lily….I like her, so I I feel badly for her being stuck in the situation….but, if she is happy ( which makes no sense….she could to better, if only the writers gave this girl an exit), I guess it’s ok.
The contractor? Is he the new character Mr. Fairman was talking about?….Ewwwww!!!!! Creepyland….and Nikki?????? What’s up with her???????

Harry
Harry

Why are so many characters acting so out-of-character? Nikki sleeping with that young dude was not so much Ben and Mrs Robinson but more like Harold and Maude. Now, that is not an ageist crack, it’s just that kid looks younger than Noah, Nikki’s grandson. Nikki looks great and I say more power to her, but still, it seemed random and out-of-character for her. Prior to that inexplicable tryst, Nikki was saying to Ashley,”Take my husband……………..Please.” Remember when these two former rivals were cat fighting over Victor? Now they’re playing a game of hot potato with Victo. “You take him, bitch!” “No, I don’t want him–you take him!”

Celia
Celia

Rethinking this, Jimmy….was that Chelsea? Alexandra West? I think, as I said, Chelsea is stealing from ‘herself’? I had a hunch…
Also, is Nikki going through bored-housewife-syndrome? What is going on with Y&R?????
What’s with senior women with schoolboys? …kind of ridiculous….I hope Nikki has a different kind of trick up her sleeve. Ha!!

Timmm
Timmm

That new contractor dude is horrible!

Celia
Celia

@Harry.
Ahhh, Harry….cracking up here….again, where do you get this stuff??
Nikki and Arturo ( oh, gawd—Arthur?) is truly disgusting….if, she did, indeed, play footsie with Arrrrturo ( think Carrrrlos).. ….sick, sick, sick….I hear that both sexes go through this phase in their later years….or when they think their youth has become elusive, literally….I just can’t see my mother with the 20-year-old gardner. LOL.
… and here I thought Julian and Alexis were ‘mismatched’, to say the least…..
Soon, TPTB will have Dina come back and take up with Reed.
Gone to the birds….everyone!!

Shay
Shay

Sounds like “Alexis Davis Syndrome” has spread to Genoa City and at a rampant pace, CeeCeeGirl! OMG…now Nikki’s at it? You’d think with her sexually-promiscuous teen years and subsequent career as a stripper, she’d be all “skanked out” by now! Guess old slappers never die, they just keep going ‘til they drop! Lol….Seems every soaptown has to have one or two.

Celia
Celia

@Shay.
Hiyaahh, Shay,
Too funny….. I do believe we all did a doubletake when we saw Nikki climb those infamous stairs ( so much has happened on those stairs, as ‘clients’ traipse to their rooms—including Abby having had a miscarriage).
But, honestly, The age difference between Arturo and Nikki is thirty to forty years….then, of course, there was the ‘fling’ between Ashley and Ravi….
….we’re not talking a few years, Shay, but decades.
These women look great ( from afar, lol)….but we all know their age….thus, these writers are off their rocker if they think it’s sexy or appealing to have men in their twenties sleep with 60-or-so-year-old-women.
In my grandmother’s words, ” What has this soap world come to?”…..always the jokester, she is.

I wish Melissa Claire Egan all the best.As for the character of Chelsea, i’m wondering if it comes out that Christian is really Adam’s and not Nick’s and that Chelsea knew which causes Nick to break up with her.Then Chelsea could decide to take Connor and leave Genoa City for a fresh start somewhere else.That way the door is left open for her to return down the line because Melissa Claire Egan might be willing to come back to Y&R one day

Chrystie_Delancey
Chrystie_Delancey

I hope she follows her good friends and finds primetime TV work. She is still young and beautiful and very good and playing good girl and bad. She is ready to move on.

Celia
Celia

I agree, Chrystie…Melissa has all the ingredients to make it on Primetime…
I wonder ‘how’ Chelsea will exit? I think she made one big mistake after she cleaned out Alexandra West’s ( now we know it is Chelsea herself) bank account. ….she tossed her wig and hat in the brush, at the roadside. I guess, Chelsea realized JT was getting too close for comfort.
That wig and hat will have DNA on them and finger prints. Chelsea hanged herself….
Will she leave by going to prison? Such an ignoble exit…. she came from dirt and she’s leaving with dirty hands; if I am right, that is….

Celia
Celia

I like that idea, Andrew….I am one eho believes to never leave the door closed, but ajar….situations are always ‘a-changing.

Celia
Celia

@Fanny.
Ahh, my lady….it is what it is….now, this new contractor-guy is just as unnerving, LOL. Can’t win ’em all !!

Celia
Celia

Hi, Andrew,
If Chelsea leaves with Adam ( planned ), Adam may want Christian…..so, your comment has legs.
But, as I have maintained from the start, Victor knows the truth….he manipulated the DNA; however, I think the baby has been Nick’s since day one…..we will never know what makes Victor tick.
On the other hand, maybe it was Chelsea who twisted fate…..
Phyllis is accusing Chelsea ( not that she’s wrong) because she is familiar with deceitful, fraudulent maneuvers.

Celia
Celia

What are the chances Chelsea takes Christian?????

Ron
Ron

If Christian is Adam’s, then she takes him. If he really belongs to Nick, then she’ll bolt with Connor only. Either way, what a horrible thing to do to children.

Celia
Celia

@Ron.
Hey, Ron,
That’s the crux of the matter, Ron. Chelsea thinks Christian is Adam’s because it is exactly what Victor wants her to think.
However, I have always suspected that the baby was Nick’s…..does not make me right, of course, but, I do not uphold Victor’s word to the nth degree….not even close; EVER!! He’s a cock, as in rooster, who struts….no honor, in that.
Chelsea truly believes that Victor ‘fudged’ the DNA tests so that Nick would believe the baby was his.
Big BUT, here…..who’s to say that it was not all a hoax? It would not be the first time Victor played havoc with people’s lives…including his family. LOL.
You are right about her bolting with Christian…..as far as she knows, he is Adam’s. For this exact reason, I think Adam is directing her every move….unless I am reading all of it wrong? Do you think Adam is behind the scheme?

Nikki
Nikki

I wish her all the very best. She is truly a great actress and she will be missed but I have always felt that they didn’t utilize her talent after Adam left. That angle they had with her Adam & Sharon brought fans to tears with Shadam, then when Justin Hartley took over we all rooted for her & Adam no matter what Victor did. We fans fell in love again with Chadam this time. Once we lost both Adam’s, Chelsea’s acting was nothing more than making out with Nick and that pairing never moved anyone. Wishing you the best till we see you again.

Celia
Celia

Agree with you completely, Nikki….I have been lamenting about Chelsea for a long time…..
It looks like TPTB are going to make her look like Chelsea is a fraud, and has been hoodwinking everyone in GC and the audience……is her past catching up to her?

Timmm
Timmm

Maybe when she exits the show, she mysteriously gets into a car and says, “Sorry it took so long, I got the money and everyone thinks you are still Dead.” They dont show the driver. It could be Adam or maybe Chloe? Cliffhanger!

Celia
Celia

@Timmm.
Yes, Timmmy….I bet Adam and Chelsea have been incommunicado for a while….
If this is so; how could she share her bed with Nick…..there is a word for women like her….
I like your dialogue…… as Adam and Chelsea with Connor drive off.
Will they come back for Christian? ( albeit, I believe he is Nick’s?)

Ron
Ron

Jordan will be back. Just watch.

Celia
Celia

@Ron.
Hey, Ron,
….Would you believe I completely forgot about Jordan? …..he was such an inconsequential character for me; he did not matter, at the time….but, now?
You may be right. He must have left abruptly, if I didn’t even notice….shame on me. It would make sense….maybe he and Chelsea orchestrated and pulled off the scam together. To what end? Did Jordan help her so she could go to Adam?
Good one, Ron. Perhaps Adam and Chelsea, as recasts, will return to claim Christian.

Iakovos
Iakovos

Oh no! This saddens me. I live watching Ms. Egan and I have always liked Chelsea. She is fiery and can hold her own with the Newmans. She is one strong woman who had a heart. I am glad to hear this is her choice and it is not part of the sweep that seems to be going on in Genoa City this winter. Agreed, I would have liked to have seen more of Chelsea integrated into other stories. Am curious to see how her exit plays out. Will she sneak off? That seems unlikely. Will Victor assist her? They keep Christian’s paternity secret. She is a grifter though, so…

Chrystie_Delancey
Chrystie_Delancey

I think all the pieces have been moving in the right direction. I am sad to see her go, but KNEW that Chelsea and Nick were NEVER end game. Her heart always belonged to Adam even if she could find love with his brother.

HOWEVER, the writers have finally gotten Sharon back to the sane character that she used to be and it is the right time to gradually put Nick and Sharon back together as I believe they ARE endgame. They have developed into good friends this past year and spending more and more time together collaborating. I would love to see them put back together but very slowly. Please do not rush them into bed!!

Mo
Mo

Sorry to see her go.

JK
JK

GOOD LUCK TO A BEAUTIFUL ACTRESS…HER STORY ENDED WITH ADAM..SINCE THEN IT HAS BEEN A COMPLETE BORE….HARD TO WATCH HER ANS NICK EVERY DAY….TIME FOR A CHANGE….

Timmm
Timmm

100 percent agree!

Celia
Celia

You have always known how I feel/felt about Chelsea, T…..you feel the same way….I am not sorry to see her leave—-
This plan of hers is too sudden…I wish the writers had thought of a more positive way to aid her exit. Today, we saw that she has been planning this for a while, and it includes Christian. The only possible deduction is that Adam is, indeed, alive…..if so, how does he accept ( probably masterminded the scheme to begin with) the crudeness of his wife sleeping with his brother? Or anyone? Diabolical, if you ask me…..not my cup of tea….but, I may be imagining all of it. Very fertile mind, I have, LOL.
Also, who is back from the netherworld, showing up at the family mausoleum? Adam? Sage? Or is it a ‘live’ one: Victor? Phyllis?

Ron
Ron

Stashing money in a mausoleum? Charles Dickens at work here! Jordan says he’s in town for the day only, so I doubt he followed her there today, unless he was lying about heading back to NYC. If Nick had half the brains, he would have trailed Chelsea when she left the apartment. Maybe it’s Adam back from the dead (ala Harry’s comment last week) or maybe Phyliis, the amateur detective, was on her trail. Victor? Anything is possible.

But, if it were really a Dickens’ storyline, it would hae been a real grave, Chelsea would then kill whoever has been tracking her and then bury him/her alive. (I do recall Y and R doing this decades ago with a very young Lauren– some creep named Shawn had a thing for Lauren and buried her alive.)

Cathy
Cathy

I do not like the direction this show is going. Why did they bring JT back ? They have ut him in dead end jobs. Nikki wants Ashley with Victor. Seriously? Lily needs to stop whining over Sam. She either wants to be with Cane or not.

Soaphound
Soaphound

You know, Cathy, I’m feeling a kind of ennui (not the right word but the only one that feels right) about the plotlines you mentioned. NOTHING has me excited, it’s like a time-marking period. Just wade thru each day hoping for a spark. While Marla Adams (Dina) and Camryn Grimes (Mariah) are at the peaks of their craft, their stories seem to have stalled. Hopefully, resuscitation is on the way, maybe in the form of a sexy new doctor. GH has all the sexy men right now (Joshua Morrow nowithstanding). JT is cute but all these dreadful beards have to go (on GH as well).

Celia
Celia

LOL, Soaphound….ennui is the perfect word….( I speak fluent French, my friend, and I SAY it is!!!!!! LOL).
Well….I live in the Northeast, so, Inblame my ennui to the never-ending, dark, freezing winterama.
Everything has stalled…except for this new, harsh Ashley….then Jack…then Billy and Phyllis, then Nick and Chelsea, then, more Phyllis and Billy, etcetera etcetera etcetera….

dmr

Not a fan of JT. I didn’t watch the show when he was on before. I don’t “get” the hype. I would like to see a dashing business man sweep Ashley off of her feet!
Lily is the most irritating character, IMO.

Ashley has become the shrew….so, yeah, dmr…..she needs a dashing, superman!! LOL.

Good luck to her! She ‘s getting out while the gettings good. Mal’s storylines have this show circling the drain. I hope she finds what she’s looking for, she’s given us good characters both on Y&R and AMC.

Judith

Sorry to see this fine young actress leave, but they will leave the plot open for her return. This show needs a kick in the pants….it needs to get really interesting!!!! It needs Adam….he needs to be as strong as his father. Set up the time for Victor’s retirement/death….get a strong actor for the future of this show.

Swicks

Wish her the best. Loved her on All my Children. She should spread her wings. I’ll miss her sweet face.

Ron
Ron

WIll not miss the character, unless they send her to Portland for a final confrontation with Chloe. I agree with so many others: she and Nick don’t click. She has not had a solid storyline since Adam’s death so I can see why the actress may look for more adventurous gigs elsewhere.

That probably holds true for a majority of the cast. Too many ridiculous things going on. Ashley/Victor/Nikki? Not buying it. Sorry, but I don’t see anyone with Victoria… the character is annoying… to be polite. Phyllis matching Ravi with Hillary? Maybe Ravi with a newly-cast Summer makes more sense. The writers blew a chance with Mariah, pairing her with Ravi– equally smart, level-headed young adults.

Celia
Celia

I would’ve loved that, Ron….Mariah and Ravi. I think I said the same thing, a few days ago….
As I said to Fanny; it is what it is…Alas….sometimes I’d like to get into the writers’ collective heads just to see what makes them tick….

Tani Sterling

Hi Celia —

I am days behind, but stopped when Nikki was heading for the stairs with whomever that young man was. Somehow I recalled that the program led us to think Adam was Christian’s father. Of course that doesn’t mean anything; this is a soap.

Mariah has become my most favorite. Wish Sharon would get her back into school, or perhaps she has more background than we know. She seems such a strong person which stands out as pleasing, solid, and thoughtful amongst the requisite opposite.

Good to see Tracy. See too is something solid, and somehow ties the past with the present.

Things, for me, are too scattered. I like it when one couple or person remains a foundation while “soaps” do what they do. They can become too comedic minus foundation.

I was somewhat out of touch for several years. It must have been when Victoria’s husband was on the program. I remember him, but not what his role was. Isn’t he her husband in “real” life?

Fun to read again, and certainly the best to Melissa for her years of entertaining us.

K/kay
K/kay

She never was the love of adams life what a joke that was always Sharon

Ron

Agree! As booming as Genoa City is, these characters do seem to find a shortage of available people for a relationship. Sure hope it’s not the norm in Wisconsin.

Timmm
Timmm

Never a fan of Chelsea. I commend her for leaving a steady job. She is a good actress. Perhaps her end game was when Justin Hartley left. She just lost her momentum. Nick is not right for her. It would have been nice to see a triangle between him, Adam and Chelsea but that is off the table now, time two! Maybe now the triangle will be Adam, Nick and Sharon? Good luck Melissa!

dmr

The beginning of the exit storyline is awful..

Why would Chelsea need to steal from her own company? The woman has tons of money I swear Pratt has sneaked back into the building.

Abruzzfan
Abruzzfan

@Kay – I completely agree! I am so confused since Chelsea has all of Adam’s money???????????????????????????????????

Celia
Celia

Hi, Kay,
There may be a stipulation/ clause with Adam’s money….tied up, somehow, someway? I suspect Victor….it’s obvious he’s having her followed….is he in on this? Against Nick? ….his own son? What am I not surprised……what a guy!
If Adam is alive, he may be telling her not to touch that money. If not, then your remark, which is always ‘right-on’, is right-on. LOL.
You haven’t been wrong yet, my friend. You, as I, know the great history of this fab soap….and, as such, I do not feel comfortable with ‘things’/plotlines that do not add up…..as I said many times before, I want this show to get its ‘old’ splendor back.
My puzzlement is with Chelsea’s ‘little’ monologue with Christian. She said she was doing it for him
and Connor…..which leads me to believe she is taking Christian.

Celia
Celia

@Tani.
Hi, Tani,
LOL, my friend….That ‘trip’, of Nikki’s up the stairs, was very baffling. Harry’s comment says it best.
What is going on with her? How low can you go, Nikki?
Maybe, I’m making too much out of it, and it was all innocent? Right !
Yes, as far as Chelsea and the audience know, Christian is Adam’s. Everyone else thinks the baby is Nick’s.
I believe, as I said to Ron, Nick is the bio dad….however, TPTB will play with this, changing their minds many times, before settling on either Nick or Adam.
As far as Mariah…..she is everything you describe her to be. I truly love the charscter….and I love her relationship with Sharon.
It certainly is good to see Tracy….she has the same ‘calming’ effect on me as Laura ( Genie Francis) on GH.
You are too kind when you say ‘scattered’…..I love my Y&R, but, I like some solid ground, as you do. No foundation is right…..too many comings and goings…no solidity. The only happy ending is for Phyllis and Billy? Not for me….is anyone ever happy on soaps? The most ridiculous relationship is that of Victor and Nikki…..this couple will be on its deathbed, yet getting a divorce for the umpteenth time. LOL.
JT was sort of a rebel in his ‘youth’….I liked him best with Coleen Carlton, albeit he was much older….their romance was one of the ‘super’ lovestories in soapdom, but I always liked him…halcyon days, those were.
Yes, Amelia and Thad were married, in real life….I think they are divorced, but I can’t be sure.
So glad to see you posting, Tani….it is very nice and fun, indeed, to read and communicate……I wish for it to go on forever…..
Stay well, Tani.

Jason Canela Announces He Is Exiting The Young and the Restless

While currently involved on-screen in romantic trouble between Abby (Melissa Ordway) and Mia (Noemi Gonzalez),  Jason Canela (Arturo) took to social media Monday morning to share the news that he is departing the CNS Daytime drama series.

In his post, Canela says: “I feel blessed to have been a part of something so special! I appreciate each and every single person that makes up part of the family! Our makeup team, our crew, our security! Without them there is nothing  The team behind the camera is what makes it all worth it.”

This came on top of his Jason’s post which expressed: “When I signed my 1 year contract with Y&R I was excited because for the first time in 3 years living in this city I was able to call a studio like ‘Television City’ home.  Add to that the incredible people I’ve had the pleasure of working with to create genuine relationships with … like Peter Bergman,Melissa Ordway, Jordi Vilasuso, Sasha Calle and Noemi Gonzalez  just to name a few. (Sorry guys, but Peter is my favorite).  I feel blessed to have been part of something so special like The Young and the Restless family.  It’s time to turn the page and see what beautiful stories I am blessed enough to be part of next.  I want to send all my love and positive vibes to the Y&R fans who have been so welcoming since day 1! Appreciate the love and no worries, The Rosales family will still be cooking up some drama in Genoa City, so keeping looking out for them, and showing them all the love they deserve.”

No airdate at this time has been given for Canela’s last appearance on Y&R.

To kick-off the 46th Daytime Emmy Award season, Soap Nation Live! welcomed several of the just announced nominees (the nominations were revealed earlier in the day on CBS’ The Talk) in the major daytime drama performer categories to get their reactions, and thoughts on going for gold at the upcoming May 5th ceremony.  In this two-hour plus lively and entertaining podcast that was originally live-streamed, you can hear the excitement and joy from the actors and their support of one another and their work in the daytime community as they celebrate their nomination.

Joining Michael in-studio was his very special co-host, Days of our Lives, Arianne Zucker (Nicole), as well as NATAS’ SR VP Daytime Emmy Awards, David Michaels.  In addition, former DAYS star, Shawn Christian (Ex-Daniel) was in-studio with the trio, and often popped on to the mic and bantered with some of his longtime pals who received Emmy accolades.

Billy Flynn (Ex-Chad, DAYS), and Tyler Christopher (Ex-Stefan, DAYS), Outstanding Supporting Actor nominees: Max Gail (Mike, GH), Eric Martsolf (Brady, DAYS), Greg Rikaart (Leo, DAYS), and Bryton James (Devon, Y&R), Outstanding Supporting Actress nominees: Beth Maitland (Traci, Y&R) and Martha Madison (Belle, DAYS), and Outstanding Younger Actress nominees: Chloe Lanier (Ex-Nelle, GH).

During the live broadcast, listeners were able to ask questions of our guests, or co-hosts.  At the end of the episode, one lucky caller won our “Game Show Daytime Emmy Trivia” and received 2 VIP tickers to the upcoming GH Fantasy Event, “Teals Got Talent” in Philadelphia on May 4th to benefit The Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation featuring GH stars: Michael Easton, John J.
