So now, the agents that Daytime Emmy winner Christel Khalil (Lily Winters) has filed a lawsuit against have come forward exclusively to TheWrap.com with their side of the story.  Khalil’s agents, Mavrick Artists Agency’s attorney, Max Sprecher, said that the actress’s complaint is “all blue smoke and mirrors” and suggested that she does not want to pay the agency monies owed.

In her suit, she alleges the agency of stealing funds and not sending her out on a satisfactory number of auditions. She says they even sent her out for a role on the show she has worked on for over a decade, The Young and the Restless as Lily Winters!

The attorney for Mavrick refuted Christel’s allegation about being sent to a “Y&R” audition. “There’s no way in hell that she went out on an audition,” Sprecher said. “That just couldn’t have happened. Do you think ‘Young & the Restless’ is so stupid that their casting office would have scheduled such an audition? It wasn’t an audition — it was a submission and even if a submission happened, it was simply an oversight as agents and their assistants are in a mad rush to beat out the competition.   “Have we all not made computer mistakes?'” the attorney asked. “These things happen and it’s not a big deal.”

So what do you think of the agents position on this case? Do you think their “error” in submitting Christel for a role on her own show Y&R was a sloppy job by an agent assistant?  Wouldn’t you be pissed if you were Christel? Share your thoughts?

Sounds like a possible publicity stunt?

Sometimes this stuff, true or not, sounds like a publicity gimmick!

As with most things in life there two sides to every story, with the truth somewhere in the middle. The legal system has flaws but one of the reason it exists is to find that middle ground where the truth is and make a judgement on the case that is fair and just for both sides–lets hope that happens in this situation.

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.
