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. 🙂

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

You can see Bergeron’s tweet in full below.

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
