On today’s episode of  CBS Daytime’s The Talk, several members of the cast of The Young and the Restless took part in an on set celebration honoring this week’s 40th anniversary of the number one daytime drama!

Special Genoa City guests for the Y&R segment included: Peter Bergman (Jack), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki), Kristoff St. John (Neil), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Joshua Morrow (Nick), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) and Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea)!

After the live episode of The Talk, the cast stuck around and took part in very special web extra called, Keep Talking: The Young and the Restless, where fans in the audience could ask questions of the actors who were part of today’s tribute.

On-Air On-Soaps was in the audience, and we have to tell you, the funniest moment happened when after a sort of challenge was issued through the cast members (starting with Kristoff St. John and Joshua Morrow) …  one by one they did ten push-ups!   But then the gals got in on the action when Michelle Stafford showed her push-up power, doing ten push-ups, and then following it up with an hilarious curtsy to finish it off!  All in all, the gang from Y&R was very funny and candid!

Now after the jump, watch this segment when The Talk co-host, Sheryl Underwood moderates as the cast shares some impromptu moments that will have you laughing!  Then, let us know what was your favorite moment in Keep Talking: The Young and the Restless!

Amelia Heinle – IS SOOOOO darned Cute.

Neil… has really grown in to his own…. he should have been included in; “the hot men of the Y&R.”.

Very dissappointed they did not have Sharon Case there. She is the face of Y&R along with all that were there but one. One was there only two yrs and in my opinion should not of been included with the rest.

I really was hoping Sharon and Adam would be together. it looked like couples from the show for the most part of at least those who were there at least 10 yrs or more. Why was Chelsea even there. This is a 40th anniversary.I don’t even consider her a Y&R cast member

I was thrilled Kristoff aka Neil mentioned Victoria Rowell aka Drucilla and everyone clapped. She needs to be allowed to come back. Fans are still out raged they the show CBS or Sony don’t listen to the fans begging for years. One question. Why was MCE Chelsea even there? She is not a real character. So many others needed to be there instead. Sharon for #1. EB aka Victor, Mrs C. Anyone but Chelsea, She is a newbie want to be.

What happened to Sharon Case? I could NOT believe MCE was there. She is a new person and I don;t see this character even staying!

I loved MCE on AMC and love her on Y&R, with Adam. Not a big fan of SC and the character of Sharon is ridiculous. So they call gold digging Bi-polar now? Liked the character in the beginning but she has become so sanctimonious and needy over the years. What happened to the Sharon that came to town and could stand on her own two feet without a man to tell her CONSTANTLY how wonderful she is. Sharon has got to be one of the worst mothers on daytime.

Are you crazy!!!! The ONLY GOLD DIGGER IS CHELSEA! Get your facts straight! Sharon loves with all her heart! Sharon and Adam balance each other with love and friendship. They have what it takes to go all the way as #1 till the end game!!!!

TALK ABOUT A BAD MOTHER!!!!!! CHELSEA IS A BAD MOTHER! A WOMEN WHO GIVES HER SON AWAY AND LIVES IN A MANSION UP THE ROAD. THEN LEAVES HER HUSBAND BECAUSE HE DID NOT WANT TO MOVE ACROSS THE WORLD. THAT IS A GOLD DIGGER CHILD! CHELSEA NEEDS TO GO! ADAM NEEDS THAT BABY TO RAISE WITH THE MOST LOVING MOTHER WHO IS SHARON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry Fairman, but JFP’s indulgences of Burton are awful. He is one diminesional and duller than dull.

For this we lost Tucker? and Stephen Nichols!

Well you guys made me want to turn Y&R off and so I have.

Y&R is no more. Its awful now to see the ruination of what could have been a resurgence for the Chancellor family and instead its all about duller than dull.

JFP should NOT be allowed to keep ruining soaps and you keep pretending its just great!! UGH

y&r is an ancient tv show for hollywood’s standards. Yet it still has no significant racial diversity. There’s never been core Latino american and core Asian american families. y&r has never even had core Latino american and core Asian american characters. Horrid! At least “the talk” puts some effort towards racial diversity. It seems like hollywood would rather have their tv shows crumble than have more racial diversity among their casts and talk show personalities. day soaps don’t exactly have strong ratings. day talk show of blanderson had no racial diversity and it flopped! nbc’s talk show is still flopping despite firing ann curry who was their only Asian american host. matt lauer’s q rating has dropped more than 50% yet of course he isn’t treated like how ann curry was treated. Heck nbc’s cleveland affiliate bumped all its primetime tv shows for matlock reruns! nbc’s comedy the office got only .1 rating higher than matlock. While nbc’s sitcom of a presidential family portrayed by only white actors got lower ratings than matlock! Giggles. There are African american and Asian american personalities on “the talk” who are significant to that tv show. The racial diversity on “the talk” makes it a lot better than y&r and most of hollywood’s tv shows.

Lauralee Bell On Her 35th Anniversary With Y&R: “My Hope For Cricket Is To Smile The Way She Used To & Chill Whenever Possible.”

Congratulations are in order this Sunday to Lauralee Bell who is celebrating her 35th anniversary with The Young and the Restless.  Hard to believe, it’s been 35 years since the perils of a young Cricket became front and center and those young love stories with Danny (Michael Damian), Phillip (Thom Bierdz) and eventually, Paul ( Doug Davidson).

As Cricket matured, so to was the decision to now call the character by her birth name, Christine.  After all, she became quite the legal eagle! For over three and a half decades with time-off in between, Lauralee has shared memorable storylines with the amazing Tricia Cast, and the late Jeanne Cooper as Nina and Katherine, and let’s not forget Michael Baldwin, played by Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few/

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

Share your congrats for Lauralee on this milestone via the comment section below.  Then let us know your most memorable or favorite Cricket/Christine moment on the CBS Daytime drama series.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!

In a statement, Gareth Neame expressed: “When the television series drew to a close it was our dream to bring the millions of global fans a movie and now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production.  Julian’s script charms, thrills and entertains and in Brian Percival’s hands we aim to deliver everything that one would hope for as Downton comes to the big screen.”

Focus Features chairman, Peter Kujawski, shared: “Since the series ended, fans of Downton have long been waiting for the Crawley family’s next chapter. We’re thrilled to join this incredible group of filmmakers, actors and craftspeople, led by Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame, in bringing back the world of Downton to the big screen.”

Downton Abbey ran for six seasons on PBS  and received 15 Primetime Emmy awards and 69 nominations.
