Yesterday, Criminal Minds and Daytime Emmy winner star Shemar Moore was at the set of The Young and the Restless taping scenes his previously announced two-day appearance and guest star return as Malcolm Winters on the number one soap opera, which will air on September 10th and 11th!

Moore took to his Instagram  account and posted this message with a picture of himself stating: “Just finished shooting THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.. 2 episodes in one day.. REALLY GREAT to work with my OLD FRIENDS again!! 10 years later it felt like just yesterday once we started performing.. It’s short n sweet n dramatic of course.. HOPE YOU Y&R FANS ENJOY IT.. Airing Sept 10 and 11 on CBS… I felt really good to be welcomed home… Where MY CAREER BEGAN 20 YEARS AGO!!!”

And today PEOPLE.com had a first look photo from the shooting day featuring Moore and on-screen brother Kristoff St. John (Neil) where they also revealed that during their scenes, “Malcolm and Neil discuss Drucilla, the popular character played by Victoria Rowell. (Drucilla was married to Neil but slept with Malcolm). Sadly, the actress won’t be there to join in on the fun.”

Shemar added:  “I ran into her (Rowell) a couple weeks ago.  I told her I’m sorry we won’t be all together. That would be pretty great, but as far as I know, Dru has passed away.”

So, getting more interested in the return of Malcolm Winters? What do you think about the fact Neil and Malcolm will chat about Dru? Comment below!

Blah. Who cares. Sigh. At least it’s the real Malcolm. Not like it matters with only two episodes though. And as far as I’m concerned, VR has verbally burned too many bridges to come back, which stinks because the fans are the ones who lose.

Please Y&R forget and forgive and give Victoria (Dru) a chance to write some of the episodes, I said and repeat at least “some”, you may find that you like it and that they will work wonders for the show. Please let us of color b able to see that Y&R is not what has been claimed. Many of us are very gifted, and gifted with more thab being able to run a ball, hit a ball, dance, sing, and yes ACT, we are also awesome and gifted writers, did not Angilou wrote beautiful and moving poetry as did Phillis… Read more »

They never forgot or forgave Brenda Dickson so I doubt they will ever forgive Rowell.

Not to mention that Rowell keeps picking at the wound. Loved her as Dru, but she’s got issues that are hazardous to her career.

MBmomof3…yes. I agree. Also…if you want to, think about this: More and more, I’m actually surprised that VR STILL has a career left at all. Over the years, she has burned SO MANY bridges. YIKES!!!!!

They discuss Dru– I hope they mention Sophia too– since Neil slept with his brother’s fiancee or were they were married when he did, I forget. Anyway– still looking forward to appearance no matter how brief.

The same things she’s continuing to do to this day instead of letting sleeping dogs lie. She claimed she was released from her contract after Bill Bell passed and Sony acquired the show along with CBS. She rants and raves about how Proctor and Gamble were racists(they were) as a company..she had an on going feud with Michelle Stafford who played Phyllis and more or less alluded to some nefarious goings on with Michelle and Melody Scott’s husband who was EP back then. She claims to want a return and in the next breathe and blog she’s tearing the Bosses… Read more »

How great would it be to have Malcolm come visit more often? Shemar Moore works for another CBS show so I would imagine it wouldn’t be too hard to facilitate Malcolm appearing every now and then, like the way Beth Maitland pops up every now and then as Tracy.

But what would really be amazing is if Victoria Rowell could return. I’ve missed Dru so much since she was “killed-off,” and since Sharon fell off the same cliff and came back alive, I’m sure they could find a way to write Dru back in.

I dont see the point of bringing back Malcom just to talk about Dru being dead…unless Dru is alive and like Adam we will get to see her hand for months…maybe hands newman is somehow connected to the hands winters plot…lol

Welcome home Melcomb. Y&R offer him another contract and bring Nell’s brother back home full time. Ir was good seeing them together and the scene where he got Nell to say he is afraid about being blind was touching and emotional and I personally can relate to each it, for in 2007 a stroke took the sight in my left eye and I now am faced with the possibility of losing the sight in my right from Type 2 Diabetes ( glaucoma/cataract…Thet are great together, would love to see more…..

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
