The Young and the Restless put out a photo of St. John on social media accompanied by the thoughts: “Today and every day we remember the man behind Neil Winters.  Kristoff St. John is a greatly missed member of the family who will always be in our hearts.”

Moore, who played St. John’s brother, Malcolm Winters for many years on Y&R shared: “One year….. I miss you STOFF!!! I always will… I hate that I can’t pick you up on my shoulders and talk shit with you anymore.. but One year.. two years.. Ten years…. for the rest of my breathing life, I will ALWAYS carry you in my heart!! Keep Dancing and White Boy Rapping and being a Goofball up there….I LOVE YOU n MISS YOU n HATE that you’re not telling me what i’m doing right or wrong!!! Till we meet again… and we Will meet again… THANK YOU!!!

Mia St. John, the ex-wife of Kristoff, expressed: “I’ve died twice in my life already. The day my son passed and the day #superbowlsunday last year when his father passed💔2020 will be my rebirth 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼For them and all the others that continue to suffer #mentalillness #addiction #depression #anxiety #ptsd awareness”

Bryton James simply put with his photo with St. John: “My man… I love you forever.”

Many of Kristoff’s friends and colleagues joined Michael Fairman and guest co-host Daniel Goddard (Ex-Cane, Y&R) in a tribute to Kristoff St. John several weeks following his death on Soap Nation Live’s special podcast.  The guests included: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, Christel Khalil, Mishael Morgan, Eileen Davidson, Eric Braeden, Bryton James and Victoria Rowell.   We have posted the broadcast below in honor of Kristoff’s passing.

One year ago today… we lost you, and when I say “we” I mean the world. It’s such an emptier place without you. You were loved by so many. Wherever you went, people fell in love with you… because you were just one of those people that gave so much positive energy to every single person that entered your life. To this day I still cannot believe you’re gone… And not a day goes by that I don’t think about you. The amount of ridiculousness that we shared brought so much joy to not just my life, but everybody that was close to you. You would shortcut through my dressing room on the way to the soundstage for no other reason than to make me laugh…. It’s crazy how much you made Everyone laugh. And somehow… you managed to do all of this while suffering through so much emotional pain. Rest my brother… rest now in peace. You will forever be missed. #RIPKristoffStJohn #SayHisName #StayLookingUp 💔

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Exit Days of our Lives

Coming up on Days of our Lives, both Lani and Eli Grant will be written off the canvas to facilitate the departures of Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani).

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Archey who stepped into the role in 2017, has made the decision to leave the long-running NBC soap opera, and will last air the week of July 4.

As for Stowers, she will last air on Friday, July 1st, and given her current storyline, it looks like Lani, who has confessed to murdering TJ (William Christian), will either be sent to prison, or will exit Salem with Eli.

This would not be the first-time that Stowers has departed DAYS.  After her debut in 2015, she was off the Salem canvas for a six-month break in 2016, before returning to the show through 2022.

We will share more information on Lamon and Sal’s exits as it comes to light.
