The Young and the Restless, will observe Veterans Day with two episodes featuring U.S. veterans, as well as a CBS Cares PSA that directs viewers to www.VA.gov, beginning on Monday, November 11th featuring Steve Burton (Dylan McAvoy) that raises awareness of education and employment for our U.S Veterans.

In these special Y&R  episodes, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) hosts a fundraiser to honor veterans, while also hoping to get closer to her long-lost son, Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton), who recently completed a tour in Afghanistan. Nikki’s husband, Victor (Eric Braeden), announces a plan to have his company, Newman-Chancellor Enterprises, provide jobs for qualified U.S. veterans, letting people know that he values veterans as driven, goal-oriented employees and advising other employers to seek out these proven leaders.

Y&R invited 12 U.S. veterans from the Army, Navy and Marines and who served in World War II, Vietnam, the Gulf War and Iraq to participate in these memorable scenes, along with actors Peter Bergman and Sean Carrigan, who play veterans on the series.  The show worked in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for authenticity purposes with this storyline.

Watch the CBS Cares PSA with Steve Burton after the jump! Then, let us know if you will be watching these very special Veteran’s Day episodes of The Young and the Restless?

I feel Steve Burton /Dylan is very happy, pleased, with his decision to move on to Y&R in a roll that at the least has some depth and meaning to the character Dylan..

Steve Burton as Jason the hit man on GH was not very rewarding for him, a dead end..
Dylan has heart, problems, depth, a life..

Now that Dylan will be involved with the Newman’s as Nikki’s son, I see him doing very well on Y&R and that it is much better for him than being Jason, Sonny’s hit man..

As for Sam’s future, I love the newness of her and Silas, great chem!! They will be an awesome couple!!
Time moves on for all, new life is born..

Yes Dylan is doing something great for our VETS (sorry) I Mean SB

Time has/moved on for Sam Call (Kelly Monaco)

I love/ the chemistry between Michael Easton and Kelly Monaco!!!!!

If Ron or Frank can her a baby storyline, I’ll be estastic!!!

Steve burton is donig great things with this story. He brings life to this caricature.

Jason did have heart and he did show emotions. All Dylan does is mope around and is a flat out wuss. He’s boring as hell as Dylan. Sorry, but that’s my opinion. He’s better on GH as Jason.

Dullan is so boring.

But having said that, I don’t want steroid boy back in Port Charles. He ruined everything he touched.

Haha, very true. I have come to enjoy General Hospital with him not on it. They are doing just fine without him. The days that he’s on Y&R, I don’t really enjoy. I haven’t enjoyed one storyline of his yet, on the show. But, when he was on GH, I didn’t feel that way. It all comes down to this, where ever JFP goes, Steve goes.

So what is Steve Burton doing for the vets? A scripted PSA gosh I am so over this guy. Try Gary Sinise the actor who has the Lt. Dan Band for 10 years and has done non-stop help for our veterans building homes etc. Tell me has he been to one Veterans home to assist in their needs just another prop by him and that stupid woman he calls his friend.

OMG! GET OVER YOURSELVES!!!! This is about episode to honor our vets you make it about you and you angrier or him leaving Stupid GH. Move on already.

It’s not. It’s gonna be about him. Believe me, I lost whatever ounce of respect I had for Steve. We’re not making it about us. We’d be fine, if this were to honor the amazing men and women who fought for our country, believe me, I have nothing but the utmost respect for them. But, the bottom line is, this is just another way to prop Dylan which is beyond sad.

You bet I’ll be watching the special Veteran’s Day episodes of #YR…and not just because Dylan McAvoy is my favorite character (and Steve Burton my favorite actor) on Y&R. Kudos to Y&R & CBS Daytime for honoring our Veterans in this way and through characters like Dylan & Stitch & their storylines!

I completely agree Laurie

I AGREE

Nice to see YR doing something like this and good to know they went to Veterans Affairs to make sure they were doing things right. Look forward to seeing these episodes.

Looking much forward to it!

dig it

Well getting used to this character. Loved Jason but this one brings out a huge heart that was hid in GH. Love this story line and working with the V ETS well you ROCK! Anything that joins our Vets into a storyline is huge. Respect all the way. XO

Yes… will be watching! Love Steve Burton and loving him as Dylan! Miss him so much as Jason on GH!!! However I agree with the above posts… this is a better fit for him and a chance to be a different character. Happy to see CBS cares about Veterans and love that they are incorporating it into the show!!! Veterans deserve so much more… but this is a great start in the right direction!!! Soap fans care too!!!

As always, I’m happy that Y&R is at the forefront of something that needs national attention.

Steve Burton is doing great things with this story line. The emotions and heart he brings to this roll are amazing.

Yes, it’s great that Y&R is incorporating the War Vets into the storyline. However, it’s to prop Dylan even more. Which is sad.

I can’t wait. This will get a lot of national attention.

So I’m sure I’ll get hate for this, but do you think Phelps would be doing it if it wasn’t one more way to showcase Burton and his character? I mean c’mon.

I watch YR and will be thinking of my Uncle who served in Vietnam.

You won’t get any hate from me. I completely agree with you. This is all just to prop Dylan even more. Can’t wait till the day he leaves.

Thank you. If he had been introduced slowly like most new characters (especially how YR historically does so) instead of thrust into almost every story, (he interacts with more characters in less than a year than vets do), I think more long time fans may be a little more tolerant of this FOJ.

Jessica, honey, I AGREE!!!!! Forgive me for saying this, but this is not about Veteran’s Day. It’s MORE LIKE about that insufferable soap opera killing W-I-T-C-H Jill Farren Phelps giving her VERY BLAND AS HELL golden boy/lovesick puppy/soap opera pet Steve Burton YET MORE air time. OMG AND YIKES!!!!! How much more soap opera air time does that arrogant and conceited SB need?!?!? And, Jessica…YES…I, also, will be glad once SB is gone (along with that insufferable soap W-I-T-C-H JFP). ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!

Jessica, take care. XOXOXOXOXO

P~ who has the patience anymore because mine is tapped out for YR…It is to simply as perfectly put “to prop up” Steve because JFP needs to try give SB a Emmy nod you know…wink wink!

We need emoticons Michael, please…

It’s funny how hard it is to not associate actors with a role after so many years of playing a character. SB will always be Jason to me. He may be great in Y&R but someday if he returns to GH I will welcome home back. Of course I thought the same thing about Cliff left AMC too and we know how that ended up.

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Tanner Novlan on Sheila’s Death: “Normally, Finn Would Be Right There with Steffy and Helping Her Through It, But Someone Needs to Help Finn Through This.”

This past week, viewers of The Bold and the Beautiful watched in shock as Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) was stabbed and eventually died, when Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) in self-defense plunged a knife into the supervillain.

According to all accounts, for now, Kimberlin Brown has exited the series, leaving fans in disbelief. Many believe it’s a set-up against Steffy, and Sheila has not really met her maker. At the epicenter of the story is also Tanner Novlan (Finn). In key moments, it appears that Finn blames his wife for his biological mother’s death, which sends him reeling and not comforting his wife.

Instead, he runs out of the cliff house and goes to Deacon’s (Sean Kanan) where he sits in devastation, only at the end of Friday’s episode to be comforted by none other than Hope (Annika Noelle). All leading to speculation that Finn and Hope are about to hook up. Tanner appeared on the newest episode of Bold Live after the week’s episodes where he fielded questions from callers on what inquiring B&B fans want to know.

During the call-in show, Novlan addressed if he thinks or knows if Sheila is actually alive. He responded, “Who knows? It is the soap world, but we definitely had to say goodbye to Kimberlin at work and that was really tough and really sad.”

While fans love their ‘Sinn’, Tanner agreed that they are seemingly an enduring couple, but the death of Finn’s mom will challenge them in a whole new way as his core values are tested. “I don’t think anyone wants to see ‘Sinn’ go away. They have one of the best relationships in soaps. It’s really interesting to see all of these different elements thrown at them and the them survive and how they battle through it,” he explained. “With this recent reaction it was different than the other ones, and the challenges they faced. I think it’s a moment where Finn is really rocked, and you’re right, his values, we know them. That is what is so great in playing him, in that, he has such great, true honest values.”

When getting the scripts in which Finn points the finger at Steffy for his mother’s death and does not comfort her, Novlan shared his reaction, “In this moment he (Finn) is having a really hard time, mentally, which I think as an actor when I read that I was like, ‘Why isn’t he standing by his wife? What’s going on? This is not like him.’ This is something deep in him that has been triggered and he’s going to have to figure that out.” Tanner added, “Normally, Finn would be right there with Steffy and helping her through it, but someone needs to help Finn through this.”

All leading to what fans saw on Friday’s episode. Hope comforted Finn in his grief. While Novlan is not giving anything away, he told a caller, about a potential Finn/Hope pairing that, “Finn would have to battle Thomas (Matthew Atkinson), and that might be a mountain to climb. I think Finn just needs someone to talk to. That relationship feels platonic to me.”

Watch the entire episode of BOLD Live featuring Novlan below.

Now let us know, do you think Hope and Finn will hit the sheets? Will Steffy and Finn ultimately divorce only to reunite down the line? Will Sheila come back alive and well, once Steffy is locked up behind bars for her “murder”? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Haley Pullos Attempts to Strike Deal with Prosecutors and Change Plea to “Guilty” for Lower Sentence in DUI Crash Case

At a hearing this week, the attorney’s for General Hospital actress Haley Pullos (ex-Molly) and the LA District attorney met with a judge in Pasadena, California who was informed the parties were working out a “potential settlement.” Pullos did not attend the hearing.

Haley is allegedly attempting to negotiate a deal with prosecutors, that if she changes her plea to “guilty,” that she would receive a lesser sentence which could result in limited or no jail time. Another part of the negotiation could potentially give Pullos a suspended sentence or house arrest.

Currently, Pullos is facing up to three years in prison after she pleaded ‘not guilty’ to a DUI and a second charge for a hit-and-run. Pullos was in a near-fatal car crash back in June of 2023, when she drove the wrong way on a Pasadena freeway while she was under the influence. and crashed into a another car.

The other driver, Courtney Wilder, was rushed in critical condition to a local hospital to undergo emergency surgery, and is now suing the GH actress in civil court, plus seeking damages for negligence. Last month, Wilder allegedly added Pasadena’s No Comment Lounge to his lawsuit, where reportedly Pullos was working as a hostess the night of the accident. Wilder is accusing the nightspot of plying Pullos with liquor, and then allowing her to drive home in her car, which later caused his injuries.

After the Wednesday February 28th hearing, the judge has now scheduled yet another hearing on April 8 which he said ‘should be the final’ one.

According to the Daily Mail, “Deputy District Attorney Melany Avanessians told Judge Smerling that if no plea agreement is in place by April 8, ‘we will send her to a preliminary hearing’ meaning Pullos would be on her way to a full trial.”

Since Pullos’ legal troubles, GH has recast her role of Molly Lansing-Davis three different times. First with Holiday Mia Kriegel, and she was followed by Brooke Anne Smith. The latest Molly, Kristen Vaganos, seems to be a keeper at the moment during the Molly, TJ (Tajh Bell0w) and Kristina (Kate Mansi) surrogacy storyline.

Pullos joined GH as Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Ric Lansing’s (Rick Hearst) daughter back in 2009 and was with the show till the  summer of 2023 prior to the car collision.
