News – Soap Buzz 0 March 26th, 2018 Y&R Celebrates Its 45th Anniversary Today! EP Mal Young Teases: “We’ve Got Major Storylines Happening And Major Peaks Of What We Have Been Building Up To For Months”

A big congratulations are in order to The Young and the Restless on this Monday, March 26th. For 45 years ago, CBS broadcast the first episode of this juggernaut daytime drama hit series that since 1989 has been the number-one rated soap of them all!

This week, Y&R has plenty in store for fans of the residents of Genoa City with major storyline bombshells and revelations planned after last Friday’s multi-story cliffhanger.

In a videotaped message posted on social media Sunday, Y&R executive producer, Mal Young shared: “This is a huge moment and honor for me, personally. To have the responsibility of overseeing the celebrations for the 45th anniversary of Y&R. The anniversary is on a Monday, but actually it’s all about these five episodes and events that are going to unfold across the five episodes that are going to change lives forever.

We’ve got major storylines happening and major peaks of what we have been building up to for months. So it was important that some of those people came from like Mac (Kelly Kruger) who would actually play into current storylines.

It’s been like a real reunion this week, while we’ve been filming everything. It’s been a joy for everyone, simply meeting each other, after not seeing each other for years. The atmosphere had been exciting an emotional, and I think we’ve got something truly exciting and special for the fans.”

The Young and the Restless, and returning guest star on today’s episode of Days of our Lives, Greg Rikaart (Kevin, Y&R and Leo, DAYS) has posted a new update in his battle with the coronavirus. The good news is Greg is on the mend!

In his message, Rikaart shared: “I’m doing fantastic, easily like 95 percent better than I was the last time I made one of these messages. The only thing is, I still have a little bit of a lingering cough and I guess I have to work on rebuilding my strength and my energy a bit.  But feeling really good, stronger, and better every day, and wanted to let you all know, first and foremost.

And secondly, I wanted to thank you all for the incredibly kind and generous messages of support you sent my way which really lifted my spirits at a time when they needed to be lifted, ‘cause there was a scary couple of days there.”

Michael Fairman TV sends our thoughts and to ‘get well soon’ to Greg and for soap fans make sure to catch him on today’s April Fools episode of DAYS, where there are plenty of “Leo-isms” to go around!

Josephine weighed-in at 6lb., 11 oz. and measured 20 inches long.  The joyous moment for Liz and Rob  didn’t come without some hiccups, especially for Liz entering the UCLA Santa Monica hospital amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

PEOPLE had the exclusive pics and statement from Hendrickson who expressed: “We are thrilled to introduce our little Josephine James Meder to the world – she’s perfect in every way,”

Earlier  week on her Instagram. Liz revealed: “We’ve decided to induce labor with everything moving so rapidly. We felt it was safest to get her here safely before Rob wasn’t allowed in the delivery room like they’re doing in San Fran and NY.”  However, she later added,  “20 mins before we walked into the hospital the midwives were notified that after delivery only the mother is allowed with the baby postpartum. Rob has to leave. We are heartbroken but we also feel like I’m in incredible hands. My midwife Didi is a dream and my nurse Andra is so awesome!” she wrote. “I know i will be well supported by everyone in the maternity ward.

Share your congrats and well-wishes below for Liz and Rob and their new family member, daughter Josephine!
