Well this is fantastic news! According to this week’s Soap Opera Digest Stacy Haiduk is returning as Patty Williams to The Young and the Restless.

SOD reports, “The actress is already taping scenes and will return to the canvas soon!”

Now, if you watched yesterday’s episode of Y&R you saw a Kitty cat tattoo! And we all know who has a fixation with kitties don’t we?

Just how will Patty figure into the story now? Stay tuned!

    Really? I love Haiduk and her efforts, but this whole silliness was overdone and should just be finished for good.

    Well … shame on Y&R for bringing that phenomenal actress back just to have the murder of Diane Jenkins solved. Stacy Haiduk deserves so much more and so does the character of Patty Williams.

    I have been hearing a lot of buzz that Stacy would reprise her fantastic work as Patty on Y&R and I AM SO EXCITED THAT IT’S A REALITY!!!!

    Certainly she will be involved with the Diane murder, but PLEASE, PLEASE keep her on after the story wraps up. She is absolutely mesmerizing to watch as Emily/Patty. Fans rejoice!!! My favorite crazy broad (next to Phyllis) is back with a vengeance….. MEOW!!! 🙂

        Thanks, Michael! So exciting to see the scenes of Patty so far, and to know that Nikki is right behind her…. I have a feeling that Y&R’s November Sweeps are going to be kick ass! 🙂

    YESSSSSS!!! Welcome back to Y&R Stacy, we LOVE you! Great to read this & even more excited to watch you today on the Canadian show! You’re a fantastic actress & you do an excellent job playing Patty. Love watching you work with Adam, you two make the best crooks together!

    Why even ask which storyline will involve her? Helen Keller could see that Patty will be Diane’s murderer.

    I like Haiduk but I really would have preferred some great surprise resolution to the storyline. We haven’t had a decent “twist” to a plot on this show for years. Either the twists are ridiculous (Jill Fenmore) or they were too obvious.

    Great actress! So glad she’s back. I hope this means the character of Emily is back soon too. She and Jack were very sweet together.

    The storyline with Patty and Jack started in 1982. You mean to tell me, after all this time, she’s STILL in love with the guy??? UGH, this needs to come to a complete close once and for all. They should have left the Emily character around instead.

      I, respectfully, disagree. The strength of Y&R – in my humble opinion, and as a viewer since the 1970’s – is built on these types of “core” relationships; the types of relationships that have endured for decades! Smart of the execs to always keep the past near while looking forward…. I would hope that most lovers of this show would agree. Either way, the Young and the Restless remains a record breaking television institution around the world…. and I couldn’t go a Monday thru Friday without it!

B&B’s Denise Richards Reveals Her Husband Aaron Phypers Will Be Stand-In During Ridge Forrester Intimate Scenes

On Tuesday’s edition of CBS Daytime’s The Talk@Home, The Bold and the Beautiful and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Denise Richards (Shauna) appeared on the series.

During her segment, Denise discussed how she felt about B&B being the first American TV show back in production amidst the coronavirus pandemic and if she felt safe returning to work.  Richards also discussed how the love scenes and more intimate moments of the series will be done either with real-life partners standing in for their on-screen love interests, or a blow-up doll.

Denise expressed: “I’m excited to go back to work. I think it’s important for us to also be safe, but to move forward. And Brad Bell [executive producer and head writer, B&B) has implemented a very safe environment, I feel, for all of us, so I think it’s important.”

As to the COVID-19 testing protocols, Richards explained:  “Every week we’re tested. If there are more than two actors, we have mannequins. If there is an intimate scene, they’ve asked us if our significant other can step in for that person. Otherwise, we’ll be doing a love scene with a doll.”

It was then Denise confirmed that her husband, Aaron Phypers, will be stepping in for intimate scenes with love interest Ridge Forrester, played by Thorsten Kaye: “He (Phypers) is standing in. And he came with me today. He had to have his COVID test too, every week the whole cast does. He starts standing in next week.”

Watch what Denise shared on her return to B&B below.

Then let us know what you think of B&B’s love scene or intimate moment protocol in order to get new episodes in the can safely for everyone involved via the comment section.

Who Will Be B&B’s New Love Interest For Steffy Forrester?

The Bold and the Beautiful is back in production, the first soap to do so amidst the coronavirus pandemic, and there has been much speculation and talk for awhile now as to just what the future holds in story for one of its leading stars, Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester).

It appears that instead of re-treading a romance for Steffy with Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) or his son, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), the series is about to bring in some new suitors into Steffy’s romantic life!

According to B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, he has big plans for Jacqui in the months ahead, as he related to TV Insider.

When Bell was asked about the new love interest coming in to the show for Steffy,  he revealed: “We have a great story coming up for Jacqui. Steffy has been committed to her work, her daughter Kelly…but people have been wondering when a new man will enter her life. He’s coming. She’ll have a period of time where, in fact, quite a few men will be after her – as they should be. She’s spectacular and unique. I’m thrilled to say that this next chapter will be very much about Steffy. I always feel comfortable putting drama in the hands of Jacqui Wood.”

In addition, recently on  The Michael Fairman Channel’s recent Daytime-Emmy virtual chat with Wood, Scott Clifton and Heather Tom, the actress also alluded to a potential new love interest for Steffy, too.   You can watch that below.

So, who would you suggest to play opposite Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as her new love interest?  Share your casting thoughts via the comment section.
