Ruh Roh! Aaron Lustig Returns to The Young and the Restless and that spells trouble for Phyllis!



A blast from the past is returning to daytime and this good be juicy!  Aaron Lustig who played sad-sack psychiatrist Dr. Tim Reid is  taping new episodes at Y&R starting today!

Lustig won a Daytime Emmy nomination for his comedic, yet evil turn back in the 90’s!  So why bring Dr. Tim back to the fold?  As previously reported, Y&R will reopen that cold-case plot where Phyllis tried to run down, Cricket (Lauralee Bell) but now according to TV Guide, Ricky (Peter Porte) will seek out Dr. Reid during his investigation of Phyllis’ twisted history in Genoa City.   This clearly spells t-r-0-u-b-l-e for Phyllis and gives some meaty story to Daytime Emmy winner, Michelle Stafford (Phyllis).

TV Guide also reveals and sets-up, “Lustig will re-emerge on air  on May 30.  So far, his run is for six episodes.  Lustig became quite a fan fave when Dr. Tim served as a court-appointed marriage counselor to nutjob Phyllis Summers and ended up in the sack with her. Phyllis made a secret videotape of their sex session, natch, and blackmailed the doc into testifying on her behalf in court. He did, but then later ‘fessed up to what he’d done and lost his career.”

So are you excited to see Aaron and Michelle lock horns as Dr. Tim and Phyllis?  Let us know!

Looking forward to this!!!!

Yes! Phyllis thinks she is so high above everyone else, but she does the same as some and worse. Like saying Daisy ripped Lucy away from her home. She did the same. It would have been better if she had left Victoria & Billy keep her but no, it was all about Phyllis and what she wanted. I hope Ricky nails her to the wall. That is all he is good for because he is a creep otherwise.

This was when Y&R was good he was brillant with her before they turned the character into a self-rightous pity party gal!

I’m so excited for Phyllis’s past deeds to resurface! The flashbacks alone are going to be worth their weight in daytime gold!! Stafford was bat shit off her rocker crazy back then and it was so entertaining to watchI can’t wait to see it all unfold! Great story idea, MAB and crew!!

I didn’t watch Y&R when Phyllis debuted so I never saw this storyline.

However, ANYTHING, and I mean, ANYTHING to knock Phyllis down a peg will do just fine for me. I normally do not complain about storyline, but her scenes on Tuesday with Avery made me sick. She did the same thing to Billy and Victoria, but she seems to forget that. It’s just disgusting. I do not care what her motives are. I do not believe it was because she really wanted Daniel to be a father to Lucy. I think she just wanted to be a mother to Lucy to make up for not being able to raise Daniel. Yuck. So sick of her holier-than-thou.

And now I hear she may “think” she is pregnant. I hope it is just menopause. All she needs is another child.

I don’t care for Ricky, but I really hope his book exposes her for who she really is.

I was so hoping that they’d bring Aaron Lustig back as Dr. Tim Reid. It’s about time! Phyllis needs to pay the piper!

Id love to see someone wipe that smug smirk off Phyllis’ face, but i gave up on this crapfest a couple of months ago.

So excited for this!! When I heard they were revisiting this storyline, my first thought was of Aaron Lustig!! Having him back was the only way to do this storyline properly!!

Super excited for this; not for Phyllis to get her “comeuppance” as many others have suggested, but just to see what La Stafford can do with this really meaty material….. she is going to win the Emmy…. .she proves she’s a top performer at Y&R in every scene she’s in. Ever since her first stint on the show, she proved to the powers that be that she was a presence – indeed, a force – to be reckoned with. She never disappoints; pure genius!

Sorry, not excited in the least – given Maria Arena Bell’s track record of going back into the show’s rich history and using retroactive continuity (retcon) to create new stories, she is batting ZERO!!

For example, the “Cane/Phillip Chancellor III” story was a complete bust!! What could have been a gripping and emotional story for all involved turned out to be a snoozefest for all involved – what a waste!!

This will be another go-nowhere story thanks to the current writing regime – *YAWN*!!


Y&R’s Courtney Hope Gives Update Following Car Accident & Turning the Situation into a Positive

The Young and the Restless star Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra) revealed she had been in a car accident near the Harry Houdini Estate in the Hollywood Hills on Monday, December 4th.

Taking to her Instagram story at the time, she wanted to let people know that both she and the people inside the other car were okay.  Hope, who plays Sally Spectra on the CBS daytime drama series, expressed that that while the  incident was a “heavy moment” it wound up being “positive and overwhelmingly beautiful.”

She went on to state, “It ended up being hanging out with the guy (other driver) and his family, and my family, and people that witnessed that stayed for hours and workers and neighbors.”

Making this all the more crazy as Hope explained, “Oprah (Winfrey’s) team was at the Houdini house and them coming down, and it was like, by the end we were like, laughing and taking photos.  I know that sounds absolutely crazy and ridiculous, but I was in shock of how, in such a really heavy moment, something beautiful can come out of it. Honestly, like all that mattered was that we were all okay.”

The actress added, “By the end of the encounter we were exchanging numbers and taking photos. I’m so thankful for that experience.”

Always trying to look at the positive of life, Hope added, “I don’t know if our cars are totaled.”  However, she did share she needed a rental car but found the positive in that sharing a photo of a keychain hanging off the steering wheel that read: “LUV is in the air”

Courtney first played the role of Sally Spectra on The Bold and the Beautiful from 2017 till August of 2020, and then joined The Young and the Restless in the same role later in 2020.

Send your well-wishes Courtney’s way that nothing more serious happened from the car incident via the comment section below.

Kimberly McCullough Shares Remembrance of the Late TV Legend Norman Lear on the Set of ‘One Day At a Time’

McCullough expressed: “My hat goes off to your, sir Norman. What a wonderful life you lived. In my very first directing job, only 6 weeks after having a baby, I was feeling fragile and not quite ready to get back to work. On the set of One Day At A Time, you squeezed my chin and said ‘Look at you! A baby directing our show.’ It wasn’t condescending at all. In fact you seemed thrilled by how far we’d come in the industry, giving young women a seat at the table. I replied, ‘I’m not a baby. I just had a baby.”‘

McCullough added: “You gave me nod of approval saying, ‘Even better. You let me know if you need anything.’ That meant the world to me. Thank you for your service of the television industry, of our country and being a stand up human. #ripnormanlear”

In a previous post pictured with Norman Lear, Kimberly shared: “Thank you changing the world with your storytelling. Honored to say I’ve been able to work with you. One time I heard you say “but where is the HEART of the story?” I have a feeling you’ve asked that question a lot…”

The Lear family also put out this statement on the death of the iconic TV genius: “Thank you for the moving outpouring of love and support in honor of our wonderful husband, father, and grandfather,” the Lear family said in a statement. “Norman lived a life of creativity, tenacity, and empathy. He deeply loved our country and spent a lifetime helping to preserve its founding ideals of justice and equality for all. Knowing and loving him has been the greatest of gifts. We ask for your understanding as we mourn privately in celebration of this remarkable human being.”

Tonight, across all network television, an in memoriam card will air at 8PM ET/PT to pay tribute to Lear and acknowledging his influence in the medium.
