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 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.”

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.

C’mon Y & R, forgive, forget, bring Dru back as a ghost full of mischief and mayhem…and pathos and poignancy…

Maybe the writers are just playin and Dru will return…lol

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 Wheatley. Come please, give it a try. Nell and Dru are an awesome unit, the couple you have today just is not gathering fan welcome and embrace….

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!!!!!

It seems she is just not worth the trouble.

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.

What did Ms Rowell do or say ?

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 of Y&R/CBS/SONY/P&G a new one. They certainly gave her a brutal death that Lily witnessed and the actress Christell Kalil was none too fond of her either. She had frequent rants and raves on set…and on and on…

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.

Dru?! she s been dead since the last time malcolm came back to town!
whrs Liv?! Olivia s needed in town, to mix it up with neil and that hot new doc husband of leslie ‘s!!!
speaking of leslie, missing her and especially Tyler!!!…

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

Now that’s a good one, Newman hand for months

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…..


J. Eddie Peck ‘Thanks’ Fans For His Return to The Young and the Restless

Y&R fans received a recent blast from the past when J. Eddie Peck returned to all-new episode of the CBS daytime drama series, reprising his role of Cole Howard.

The last time J. Eddie was in Genoa City was during his initial run with the show from 1993-1999.  A few years later, Peck ventured Pine Valley and All My Children, and took on the role of Jake Martin from 2000-2003.

Now, in 2023, Cole is back when he is lured to Aunt Jordan’s (Colleen Zenk) house in Oregon only to be blindsided by her plot against the Newmans, along with his now supposed previously dead daughter, “Claire/Eve” (Hayley Erin).

Sharing his appreciation for the opportunity to come back and play Cole on the top-rated soap opera, J. Eddie took to his Instagram with a very heartfelt message to those who consistently let the show know they would love to see his return.

Peck expressed: “I just wanted to take a minute to thank those of you who have commented and supported my recent return as Cole Howard on CBS’ The Young and Restless.”

He went on to share: “I just want you to know that I’m having a great time. It’s wonderful to be back working with my Y&R family, and really this would not have been possible if I hadn’t had those of you that have supported me so much over the years and reminding the show of just how much you would like to see Cole’s returns  So, I truly want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I want you to know I’m having a great time, and I hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend. All the best.”

What did you think about J. Eddie Peck’s ‘thank you’ to the fans for willing Cole back onto the canvas? Have you enjoyed seeing his return thus far on Y&R? Comment below.

Lifetime’s ‘Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas’ Brings Epic Food Fight and “Slapfest Coup de Grâce”

Get ready for the feuding soap opera divas, when five actresses known for their signature primetime and daytime roles are brought together in Lifetime’s new holiday film, Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas.

Saturday night, December 2nd on Lifetime (8pm ET/7PM CT) marks the highly-anticipated holiday movie premiere featuring: Donna Mills (ex-Knots Landing), Nicolette Sheridan (ex-Knots Landing), Morgan Fairchild (ex-Falcon Crest et al), Linda Gray (ex-Dallas) and Loni Anderson (ex-WKRP in Cincinnati).

Here’s what we do know! In story, five alums from the long-running soap, The Great Lakes reunite for a live Christmas finale. Uh-oh!  Now take a look at the backstory of the colorful cast of characters (pay special attention to the clever twists on the actresses names!)

LAUREN EWING (Linda Gray) “Everyone thinks I’m so damn good all the time,” confesses the junk food-loving Lauren of her second act as a lifestyle guru. “I don’t know how Gwenyth Paltrow does it!”

DANA CUNNINGHAM (Donna Mills) Now a sitcom mom, she’s yet to make amends to ex-bestie Juliette after abruptly leaving the soap back in the day. Not that she hasn’t tried: “When I thought the world was going to end in Y2K,” Dana says, “I reached out to her, and she never called me back.”

LILY MARLOWE (Loni Anderson) After replacing Dana on ‘Great Lakes’, Lily never again found a role to win her acclaim. “What do I have to show for (my career)? An arc on  For the People – Shonda Rhimes’ only flop!”

JULIETTE MATHESON (Nicollette Sheridan) “She left me for L.A.,” the party girl turned fashion mogul recalls of Dana’s betrayal. Will their feud derail the entire event?

MARGEAUX ROBERTS (Morgan Fairchild) “Fasten your face-lifts, ladies, it’s gonna be a bumpy weekend!” The sassy grande dame of ‘Great Lakes’ sees the Juliette-Dana beef as the perfect escape from her own domestic drama.

Now, making this all the more hysterical is the director of The Great Lakes reunion special, which makes the five women live under the same roof, is its former child star Alex, who has gotten his ex-girlfriend, Nell to direct the finale. Meanwhile, in the subplot. the ‘Ladies of the ’80s’ come up with a plan to get Alex and Nell back together.

As with any good soap opera, there is a major food fight. Linda Gray shared with USA Today ,”The food fight was one take. And it was fabulous.” And of course, their is a bitch-fest slap-fest. Morgan Fairchild revealed, “Oh honey, we all got ours in. Mine was a simple, ‘How dare you?’ with a slap. But I was hoping for a punch.”

The movie’s EP, Larry Thompson, who is a Hollywood manager and has Donna Mills as a client, said that the entire scene peaks with the”slapfest coup de grâce.” What is that exactly? That is when Donna Mills pushes Nicollette Sheridan into a pool in a nod to Dynasty’s Lily bond battle between Dynasty’s Alexis (Joan Collins) and Krystle (Linda Evans).

In case you missed it previously, check out the trailer for Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas below, also starring Patrika Darbo, Alec Mapa, Mills real-life daughter, Chloe Mills, and Christopher Atkins with theme song by Tiffany.

Now let us know, will you be tuning in to the movie for a premise that should delight many a longtime soap fan? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
