Standing ovation and hats off to the one and only Daytime Emmy-winning make-up artist of The Young and the Restless, Patti Denney.  After four decades as the confidante to many of the stars of the series who spend their days in the make-up chair getting ready for their scenes, Denney has decided its time to move on – she is quite the painter by the way!

In a heartfelt post on Instagram this week, Y&R’s Michelle Stafford shared: “Last night we celebrated this gorgeous, amazing, beautiful, exquisite woman @myartbypatti ❤️ I am at a loss for words. This woman means SO much to me. She has been doing my make up at #YR from the beginning. We have gone through so much together. She has had my back. I have had hers. It’s a relationship that I can’t put into words. Even when I wasn’t on the show we still talked. I couldn’t get out of the make up chair the other day as it was the last time she was doing my make up at work. I couldn’t leave.As an actor you usually go from job to job. People mean a lot to you during that job but you know it will end. On our show it’s very particular. We know we’re going to see that person tomorrow. So many people have been there for so long we have truly become a family. Patti IS my family. Forever. Patti, I will miss you at work but I’m so happy that you are going to be living such a fun life full of new experiences with your incredible Mel! I hope to commission you for a huge painting in my house. I can’t wait to see the new things you create in your life! I love you. ❤️”

Stafford’s sentiments were echoed by her co-star, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren): “There is no one better!!” (Denney is pictured below next to Kate Linder, during Linder’s recent 40th anniversary with Y&R)

Patti Denney’s journey on Y&R dates back to April 1, 1980, and her very last day at the set was on July 1st of this year.   In a twist of fate, as detailed on Denney’s instagram, on June 27th of this year she married Mel Stetson, who had joined the Y&R hair department in 1996.  Patti shared: “Marry on Monday, retire on Friday!”

Denney also shared goodbyes to her Y&R family: “One more thank you to an amazing crew for making the last months on YR fantastic. Thank you for the love, the surprise party, the decorations, the laughs, the support, good times and not to forget the hard work and talent beyond. I love you all so much and I’ll miss you ! Don’t be surprised if you see me sitting in a corner booth at Maggiano’s during lunchtime waiting to catch up on the latest!”

We wish nothing but the best to Patti as she moves on to new endeavors and congratulations for an incredible job well-done! Share your comments on Patti’s retirement, and all the sentiments sharedm via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood to Visit ‘The Talk’

Hot on the heels of this week’s shocking and controversial episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, three-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) is one of the guests on the upcoming Monday March 4th episode of The Talk.

Wood, has been at the epicenter of the storyline, which saw this past Monday that Steffy presumably stabbed and killed villainess Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) to her death. Following Sheila’s apparent demise, Steffy’s husband Finn (Tanner Novlan), who is the biological son of Sheila, finds out his wife stabbed his mother.

Instead of showing more concern for his wife almost being attacked by Sheila, Finn has shown his ‘inner-Sheila and can’t seem to get over the fact that Steffy ‘killed’ his birth mom, which is causing trouble in their marriage and as fans ultimately believe, will lead Finn into the arms of Hope (Annika Noelle).

Clearly, Jacqui will have plenty to ‘talk’ about with The Talk co-hosts: Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood.

In addition to Wood, The Talk will also welcome actor Scott Caan (son of the late James Caan) who will be on-hand to promote the premiere of his Fox series, Alert: Missing Persons Unit which begins its new season on Tuesday night, March 5th.

The Talk airs on CBS and streams live and on demand on Paramount+ weekdays at 2:00 p.m. ET/1:00 p.m. PT.

So, are you rooting for Steffy in this one? Should she break-up with Finn? Will Sheila be revealed alive in a few months? Comment below.

Steve Burton’s ‘General Hospital’ Return Previews Jason Has Blood on His Hands

Monday, March 4th is the day that Steve Burton returns to General Hospital in the pivotal role of Jason Morgan. The story of Jason’s re-emergence on the canvas has been kept under wraps.

However, PEOPLE has a first-look photo, and in it, Jason has blood on his hand. Not only does he have crimson on him, but he is dressed in black and standing behind a dumpster.

When viewers last saw Jason it was back in November of 2021, when a tunnel collapsed on him as he was attempting to save his brother Drew (Cameron Mathison). For the past two plus years, every one in Port Charles has believed that Jason had died.

Burton’s initial run as Jason was from from 1991 till 2012. After exiting and signing on with Y&R to play Dylan McAcoy, the actor eventually returned to the daytime drama that was his home in 2017. Later, during the Covid-19 pandemic, he was let go from the series by the end of 2021 for not adhering to the Disney/ABC vaccine mandates at that time.

While away from GH, he rejoined the cast of Days of our Lives in 2023, resuming his original soap role of Harris Michaels that he played in 1988 and the year prior on the Peacock limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter Two. With the tape schedule well ahead of streaming, Burton will be doing double duty for a short term, where fans can catch him on DAYS, and now on GH.

Previously, Burton said on his upcoming GH storyline, “I got to talk to the head writers. This story is going to be sick. It’s gonna be awesome. So, make sure you keep watching, because the pieces of the puzzle are gonna be fit for when I return.”

Fans should also make sure to catch today’s Friday, March 1st episode of GH as Jason’s return story begins to unfold.

So, what do you think will be how Jason returns to GH starting next week on all-new episodes of GH? Comment below.

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.
