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.

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… Read more »

Dancing with the Stars

Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews Exit ‘Dancing with the Stars’

The ballroom dance-competition will look quite different when season 29 of Dancing with the Stars makes its return on ABC.

Longtime host of the series Tom Bergeron (he has been with the show since 2005) and sidekick and co-host Erin Andrews are not returning to the series.  Andrews joined as co-host in 2014 and was a previous contestant.

On Monday, Bergeron got ahead of the news addressing his departure on his Twitter account sharing: “Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?”

On Tuesday, Andrews  put out a statement sharing:  “Thank you ABC and the entire Dancing with the Stars family for 6 memorable seasons.  Those years wouldn’t have been as special without my loving host Tom Bergeron, the talented dancers, and witty judges. I will always cherish my days on that set, even if I wasn’t the best at walking in heels.”

In a joint statement from ABC and producer BBC Studios, they thanked the duo: “Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing with the Stars family. As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success. Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”

Just how the dance-reality competition series will look comes this fall in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic remains to be seen.

So, what do you think of the departures of Bergeron and Andrews? Who do you think will be named hosts of the series for its upcoming season? Comment below.

OLTL’s Erika Slezak Featured In Film ‘Guest Artist’ with Jeff Daniels Available On-Demand Starting July 21

Great news for One Life to Live and soap fans who want to see more of six-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki).

Now comes word that Slezak’s recent guest-star role in the film, Guest Artist with Jeff Daneils, will be available on-demand through Redbox.  You can rent or buy the film on-demand starting next week on July 21st

Guest Artist tells the story of  a young man coming face to face with his hero (Jeff Daniels) and exploring the tangled relationship between the dreams of youth and the wisdom of age.

In the film, Slezak plays Daniel’s agent, who sends him off to Michigan, of all places.  Erika appears at the beginning of the just released trailer for the film, as well.

Back in 2018, when she landed the part, Erika noted to her fan club: “My manager said that one of his clients is Jeff Daniels, that he’d shot a movie called Guest Artist, but he needed a little extra something in the beginning, so he wanted someone to play Helen, his agent. When he asked if I’d be interested, I dropped the phone and said, “You bet!” It was a lovely scene of three or four pages, just with Jeff. He is a very nice man and a very good actor, and Timothy Busfield directed it.”

Check out the trailer for Guest Artist below.

Then, let us know if you will be interested in watching Guest Artist when its available next week, and if you hope to see more roles and performances from Erika in the future via the comment section.
