As we have been reporting all week long, last Thursday August 23rd long standing cast members of the number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless, along with recently ousted executive producer and head writer, Maria Arena Bell, took part in a panel discussion honoring the 10,000 episode milestone of the series at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California.

The panel discussion was hosted by Brooks Barnes of The New York Times, a self-professed fan of Y&R.   Barnes led the proceedings with questions and lively chat with Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, Jeanne Cooper, Eric Braeden, Melody Thomas Scott, Kristoff St. John, Michelle Stafford, Doug Davidson, Christian LeBlanc and Peter Bergman.

The Paley Center for Media had just released the entire hour long panel discussion which features a Q&A with the fans in attendance, and many interesting comments about past and present Y&R.  Now after the jump, watch the video and let us know what moments piqued your interest the most!

Oh wow, Michael! Thank you so much for that special treat. I would have loved to gone to see this in person, but with the two little ones at home, it was not possible.

I really love seeing the actors as themselves. You can see the mannerisms of their characters are the same, but to see them laugh and tell stories is truly wonderful.

Seeing Maria Arena Bell I got a new perspective of her. It is a shame that Y&R was not her total focus because I think her heart was in the right place, but her body was not always there. The things she said about getting to know the character of Phyllis via introducing Avery made a lot of sense. At least MOCA has her now and that is a good thing.

Kristoff was a riot. His wish list for Neil was so funny!

Joshua talking about Amelia and the reliquary was awesome. I remember that storyline and I could just see them cracking up over it.

I think anyone that thinks negative of Eric Braeden should watch this. To see him so affectionate with Melody Thomas Scott and Jeanne Cooper; to genuinely smile and laugh; to share intimate thoughts about the actors and characters really puts him in a different light. I have never thought negatively about the man, but this made me like him more. I love to see the real person. Some of the funniest things in a movie are the outtakes because you get a glimpse of the real person and not a part they play. This demonstrated that so well.

I fell in love with Michelle Stafford today. Sometimes she had me questioning her as a person by what she says on Twitter, but something about the panel just endeared me to her.

The stories about Jeanne fondling all the men was priceless as was the “coat” and “shoe” bit.

I agree with Melody. I would LOVE to have Bobby Marsino back on the show. The prisoners in jail being fans was funny.

The only sad parts were that Christian and Peter did not have much to say until audience members directed questions to them. I guess that is what happens when you sit on the ends like that.

Overall I think they had the right cast members on the panel. Thank you again, Michael. You made my day. 🙂

Y&R’s Tracy E. Bregman Shares Heartbreak Of Losing Her Home In Southern California Wildfires On ‘The Talk’

The wildfires continue to leave destruction in their path in Southern California as hundreds of thousands in Southern California have had to leave their homes behind.  Many are finding nothing to come back to after what is now called the Woolsey Fire burned down their beloved homes.

One of those victims who lost her home over the weekend to the fires is The Young and the Restless, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren). She is among other celebrities such as: Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, and Neil Young whose houses in the Malibu area were destroyed.

Bregman made a guest appearance on today’s episode of The Talk, revealing what happened when she found her house had been burned to the ground in a heartbreaking moment.

The Daytime Emmy-winner shared: “It’s been surreal.  It’s kind of hard to wrap your mind around … it’s hard to believe all the family celebrations and everything that I had in there is gone.  I woke up thinking, I actually don’t have anything from my past. I have no notes, or cards, or anything like that. But like Miley Cyrus said, I got my kids out, my animals out, we’re alive.”

Tracey added, “This is my third evacuation since I moved there in 2004.  I got my dog, I was able to pack a bag … grab my Emmy, but my fathers NAACP award did not make it out, and he passed away a year and a half ago, so I’m missing that.  I honestly don’t know where to live, what to do. Luckily, I just bought a little place in Nashville, and I think my whole family, we’re going to spend Thanksgiving, actually with my friends Todd and Julie Chrisley, they invited us.”

Eileen Davidson (Ex-Ashley, Y&R) also reported via social media that she is safe but there eas some damage to her home: “After living for 24 hours thinking we lost our house completely we found out yesterday that we only lost the yard around our house. Sweating it out for the next 48 hours and praying for everybody involved in this devastating and horrific fire. Love to all of you.”

At least 370 structures have been destroyed and two people have died in the catastrophic blaze, which has now spread to 92,000 acres as of Monday.

Celebrities such as: Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Alyssa Milano fled their houses over the weekend to escape the flames and winds.
