THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS: What Did You Think of Victoria and Ashland’s Wedding? (PHOTOS)

Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless brought with it the vows and the “I do’s” of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) to Ashland Locke (Richard Burgi), and the couple are now officially married.  However, pangs of guilt, emotion, and ‘how to solve a problem like Ashland’ also filled the ceremony.

Leslie Brooks (Janice Lynde) played the piano, Tess (Cait Fairbanks) sang a song, and Victoria came down the aisle with her father, Victor (Eric Braden).  It was actually the moments between Eric Braeden and Amelia Heinle that were the emotional high points as you could see the love between the characters, and the actors.

With the nuptials in Tuscany, which brought Hunter King and Michael Mealor’s characters of Summer and Kyle back into the mix, along with Janice Lynde, Victoria was said to never look more beautiful and she chose, after all of Sally’s (Courtney Hope) machinations, to actually wear the dress Sally designed, which was a smash!

The drama came from what was Gaines (Jamison Jones) going to do and what ammo did he have to bust up the nuptials in his revenge against Ashland.  Nick (Joshua Morrow) comes upon him in a upstairs terrace room, and instead of helping him stop the wedding, he actually locks him in the room.

Nick then has a decision to make …. does he stop the wedding, which he knows his sister would never forgiven him for (he was already uninvited to the nuptials), or bust open the situation?  It is none other than Adam (Mark Grossman) that tells Nick to look at Victoria before he makes his move saying, “She’s happy. Do you really want to be the guy who wipes that look off her face on what should be the best day of her life?” Just then, Ashland and Victoria become husband and wife, They kiss as everyone in attendance applauds.

Throughout the wedding, another highlight was every time the camera would pan to Billy.  His face said it all as it was exceedingly and increasingly hard for him to watch Victoria marry another man, let alone Ashland. Jason Thompson played those moments to perfection. After the wedding, Billy goes up to the newlyweds and wishes them well.  During the ceremony, he received a text from Gaines, but did not read it.  When he later opens it, there is a video attachment.

Meanwhile, back in the upstairs room, Gaines is confronted by Nick, Adam, and Victor, who Adam alerted to the situation; instead of calling security, which Nick asked him to do.  A stern Victor tells Gaines that he’s still a threat to Victoria and her company, and he won’t allow that to happen.

When we go back to Billy, who is now with Lily (Christel Khalil), he looks shocked by what he just saw in the video message from Gaines.  He shows it to Lily saying: “He (Gaines) just sent us a video of himself detailing all of Ashland’s crimes including the evidence.” Lily knows this is huge news! Billy tells her that if they don’t publish within the hour, Gaines is going to send it around to other press outlets.  When Lily asks, “What should we do?”  The camera pans to Billy looking at Victoria and Ashland, where Victoria is smooching with her new hubby.  Billy looks very concerned and very torn. Will he be the person to break the backstory of Ashland and his crimes including the forged will and his conniving for Camilla Rhodes’ fortune… or will he not do anything with the intel to save his enduring relationship with Victoria?  We fade to black.  Tune-in Monday.

So, what did you think of the wedding of Ashland & Victoria? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first, check out some of the moments and looks from the wedding in front of the camera and behind the scenes in our photo gallery below.

Honestly? In my 50-plus years of soap viewing, day and nighttime, this is the biggest letdown I’ve ever experienced, save for Billy Miller’s exit from GH. All that sturm and drang..for what? Nick was humiliated, while Sally and Ashland are on Cloud 9? And that insane priest! Central Casting must be on strike; even Sally couldn’t connect with that weirdo cleric. The vows? Even Hallmark Cards was probably embarrassed. The only bright spot was the return of Noah in the beautiful form of talented, charismatic Rory Gibson. He’s a keeper. And I see sparks rekindling between he and Tessa. Sorry,… Read more »

Wow – amazing how people see things differently.

I do agree about the new Noah, love him already. I also wondered about he and Tessa.

Totally agree with all you say. This soap has gone down hill with terrible storylines. I also miss Billy Miller.

You said it, Soaphound—I will add one more thing…..The wedding dress—…
What was that? Certainly didn’t deserve all the OOHS, AAHS and adoration.
I’ve always had a flair for style by steering away from the “norm”—I like doing my own thing, but that dress was way too alien… even for moi.

OMG I LOVED LOVED LOVED the wedding. What a beautiful ceremony and beautiful setting. I was SO relieved that no big drama happened to stop the ceremony. I love Victoria & Ashland as a couple – they are magic together.

Although I do not like Sally, nor her methods, I was sort of glad Victoria chose to wear her design.

Nikki looked beautiful.

So right, JenW. I think Nikki looked better than Victoria, though she was also lovely. Billy’s tuxedo was really wacky and that priest should invest in some conditioner and a hair brush. Great reentry for the Noah character, don’t you think?

Leslie came back to play the wedding march? Huh? It’s Super Soap Week on the U.K. soaps this coming week. That means over the top expensive stunts with non stop drama. Emmerdale literally grew two side by side cornfield mazes for nutty Meena’s revenge on Victoria and she will accidentally kill someone else. And Coronation Street created an underground tunnel network full of rushing water for Abi’s revenge on Corey. All I know is they’d better not kill Aadi since Dev has to choose between his son or daughter before their car explodes. An accident that allows Harvey the gangster… Read more »

Soap spoilers American and British are all over the internet with dedicated sites for such. If you’re a true soap fan they’re unmissable. So miss me with that. It’s not my fault Canada doesn’t do their own soaps and you guys are behind on everyone else’s. You shouldn’t have read my full comment. Soz/Sorry.

Oh davelestev1, I’m so confused about that wedding music. Tessa was clearly lip-syncing and the song was inconsequential. What’s wrong with Pachelbel’s Canon in D? It’s better nuptial music than whatever Leslie was playing.

Big Applause for the Wedding= Great, Well Done____________ Richard Burgi/Ashland had a recurring role — I recently heard he now has a 3-year contract with Y&R. But– dunno- he still isn’t in the opening roll-up.__________ As for Jason Thomas– his portrayal of Billy is astounding..Bravo! Billy Miller could have never given us the current Billy. Thomas’s acting abilities are awesome!!!______________ I hope Victor runs hot once again. I miss his devious power plays. I never get enough of Victor._________________ The only story that holds interest is the Ashland story.. It’s mainly the reason I tune in._________________ And why in H… Read more »

Su000, I agree with EVERYTHING you said. The world is great!

I love Richard Burgi and hoped that he would stay. I like him as Victor’s son-in-law. I’m glad they are buddies although you know it wont last!

Jason Thompson has made Billy Miller forgettable!

“Kill” Chance off until they find a suitable replacement.

Mariah is best when she is snarky.

ANYONE attached to Devon in a story is a career killer!

Later, my friend.

Well, su000, I completely disagree about Jason Thompson’s version of Billy Abbott. Billy Miller remains my favorite daytime actor. But I’m with you on Richard Burgi, a wonderful journeyman actor who gives Ashland a lot of different shades. I miss Victor in action mode rather than just issuing meaningless threats. Amanda & Devon? Fast Forward. And her family members simply cannot act; their scenes with Mishael Morgan are laughable. She wipes the floor with them. And the Chance/Abby/baby Dom fiasco is INTOLERABLE save for Camryn Grimes’ brilliant work as the conflicted Mariah. But now that the wedding is over, what?… Read more »

How can you invest in a character that his story is told off screen ? We need to shelve the character of Billy we need to shelve the character of Phyllis they are telling stories from six years ago it’s horrible simply horrible nobody has advanced it’s like this soap is in ground hog day the same repeat over and over and over!! What was Jason Thompson wearing??? Personally Adam brings nothing to the show his history has been rewritten how many times ??

It was a nice wedding. It did have it’s drama moments but I wasn’t in the mood for any big reveals. I don’t know what’s in store for Ashland and for how long. I’m not sure how sick he really is…no one goes to any doctors with him to confirm his condition. Most marriages on soap aren’t meant to last anyway. Ask Carly and Jason. And if he really passes, and after Victoria goes through a period of mourning, she still wins by assuming control of the whole company. It wouldn’t surprise me if Victor thinks the same way and… Read more »

The wedding was well done. ALL the “Drama” leading up to it was filler. It was useless. I loved Leslie and Tessa’s performances. I NEVER liked any of Tessa’s coffeehouse performances in the past but the two numbers she did at the wedding were done well. I’m glad the ceremony was finished and the marriage is official. They are a good couple. And quite honestly, its nice to see a seasoned character such as Victoria be with someone totally different. This show plays the same love games with Billy, Jack, Victor, Nick, Adam, Phyliss, Sharon, Chelsea, and Nicki. These characters… Read more »

All style … Nooo substance Highlight: Ashland and Victoria are my favorite new couple and imo saving this duldrum show. Was very pleasant to see a soap provide a glitzy wedding Negatives: Jack and Phyliss 4.0 already has mysound asleep, Jack looked uncomfortable minus Kyle! Sorry why was he present at the wedding?! Phyliss served no purpose eithr, Victoria and Victor hate her. How many times did Elena have to remind Nate about the best man speech ?! It was sooo tired it was funny! Victorias a nerd with no friends, didnt her and Sharon get close years ago when… Read more »

I loved the wedding and most of what led up to it. Loved seeing little Harrison although they didn’t deem it important enough to show Victoria’s kids. Let’s see a roll of eyes now, but I kept wishing that Gaines guy had turned out good, I kind of liked him. Sorry Soaphound but I also liked the silly, little Italian priest, he made me laugh. I have loved Ash and Victoria together from the beginning and hope they truly love each other and as far as Victor goes, I’m always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Nicki is Nicki,… Read more »

Iam so sick of Sharon and her continuing lust for Adam makes me sick. God forbid her husband or anyone else should have anything but good to say about this man. She even gives way to eavesdropping on Billy In the park to hear what anyone has to say about or against him. If I was Ray, I’d just tell her adious and let her go be with him instead of being the fool he is by staying with her.

Some time ago I stopped watching the program for a while because Victor became so “evil.” Please don’t let that happen. I don’t like the idea of Jack and Phillis hitching up again. Also I hope your writer’s play the Asland and Victoria thing a bit more carefully. He could go either direction as could the new Noah — his (Noah’s) expressions easily allow both directions.

Timing may be really awfully with this thought, but I would consider Jill coming back for Jack. Regardless of the past and the present it could work!

Violet Lemm

Tani Sterling,
You make some good points but they will never use an older woman for Jack. They seem to always pair him up with the much younger woman. to show off his youthful vitality.
I think Noah will be staying around , hoping for a relationship with Tessa. whom he’s had an ongoing interest in, though he knows she’s gay.

Tani Sterling
Guest
Tani Sterling

You may be correct Violet. For me, the younger women just cheapen Jack. It doesn’t have to be an intimate relationship; think Jack and Jill had that before when Jill was married to Jack’s father.

Can’t believe that Ash might collapse before they even get on the plane to Peru. I was hoping all the rumours of his eminent death are not true. She’s the best man Vickie has ever had in her life. Sorry that Lily is stuck on and with that worthless Billy.

The Bold and the Beautiful Celebrates ’30 Years of Sheila Carter’ (Photos)

It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) arrived in Los Angeles from Genoa City and somehow continued her villainess and evil ways taking aim at a new family, the Forresters, and terrorizing those they loved all along the way.

Yesterday, in a very special on set celebration (which also marked the first-time press could return to The Bold and the Beautiful sound stages since the Covid-19 pandemic began), the CBS daytime drama saluted Sheila’s portrayer, the one and only Kimberlin Brown.

Photo: JPI

Complete with rapid fire and entertaining speeches from: B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, producer, Ed Scott, plus Kimberlin’s B&B castmates Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) and John McCook (Eric), the event also saw many of the cast in attendance singing the praises of Brown’s Sheila and paying tribute to her soap legacy including: Annika Noelle (Hope), Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter), Heather Tom (Katie), Sean Kanan (Deacon), Jennifer Gareis (Donna), Matthew Atkinson (Thomas), Tanner Novlan (Finn) and Ken Hanes (Mike).

A special treat was served to all those in attendance … chocolate covered toes! It was a  very clever nod to the story point where Sheila cut off her own toe to make it look as if a bear ate it, to throw off the police and let everyone believe she was dead.

Photo: JPI

When it was time for Kimberlin to address the media, and the cast, crew and executives in attendance she shared: “I remember the first time I read for the role of Sheila Carter, and I will never forget Ed Scott walking out into the room and looking at me and saying,I want you to think Kathy Bates in Misery … and there is nothing wrong that you can do and no boundaries that you cannot push,’ and to have that kind of freedom going into a reading full of producers and writers, directors. … it was just an amazing moment.  Coming to ‘Bold and the Beautiful’ that was an incredible moment in my life.  I literally got a call from Bill Bell on set at Y&R saying, “I have written this character that I have come to love into a corner … and I’m either going to have to kill your character off or I am going to have to send you away for a long time before I can bring you back again.  He said, ‘Can anybody hear you?’ And I had happened to be in the booth and I said ‘Yes’.  He said, ‘OK, then you cannot answer me, but ‘yes’ or ‘no.’  I said “OK’.  He said, ‘Well, ‘Bold and the Beautiful’ is in Los Angeles.’  He said, ‘How would you feel about leaving Genoa City and traveling to L.A.’  I said, ‘Uh-huh, then he said, ‘Well, you would be Sheila on The Bold and the Beautiful.  Would you be happy with that?’  And I said, ‘Oh, yes! Very much so.'”

Photo: JPI

Brown added: “When I did that very first scene with Eric (John McCook), interviewing for the company nurse, I knew my life was about to take a change, and that it gave my character a chance to be something new, something she hadn’t been before.  I find that every single time I come back and play her Brad (Bell).  You give me credit for the expansion of this character, and where she is and where she’s going, but I can’t do that without Brad.  He has truly stepped into some enormous shoes and you have filled them beautifully.  I am so blessed to work with such a talented group of people. It’s so neat to see the new generation coming up as well, and be a part of their storylines and lives as well, and the way everything is intermixed. I can’t wait to see where Sheila is going next, because I think I am finally at a point in my life where I have really found my happiness.”

B&B plans a very special Halloween episode airing next Monday on October 31st centering around the 30 years of Sheila and you can check out that promo here.

Check out our photo gallery below featuring some of the backstage and on set moments from B&B’s Sheila Carter/Kimberlin Brown celebration, and be on the lookout for interviews from the event in the days ahead.

Then let us know, what has been your favorite Sheila storyline on B&B over the past 30 years … and post your kudos and well-wishes to Kimberlin for a job well-done via the comment section.
