Love this. Been watching her the entire time.

I LOVED when Christian LeBlanc presented Tracy with a replacement Emmy for the one that was damaged. Great moment, and the only reason I’d tune into THE TALK. I actually liked Lauren’s affair with the unhinged Carmine. It provided a great showcase for Tracy and Christian to really shine with a front burner story. Sheila stories get old quickly for me so I don’t miss those. I liked when Lauren was running Fenmore’s employing Amber and Gloria. I also liked when gorgeous Blair Redford played her son Scott for a while and I wish Fenmore were a regular character. I liked Max Ehrich’s Fen but Zach Tinker is just as good. I’m looking forward to their reunion.

Hi, hope all is well. I can’t tell you how sick I am of Sheila, but I keep watching. On that vein, I was utterly shocked when Lauren proclaimed she didn’t know whether Sheila was dead or alive. How could the Forresters not make her aware of Sheila’s latest deeds, knowing all the harm she caused in Genoa City.

I really enjoyed 40 years of Tracy as Lauren. Since I am relatively new to Y&R I didn’t know her history. Hope we see more of her in the future.

It was also a chance to see where Sheila (now on B&B) came from. She was always awful, so I was glad it was only for a few minutes. For some of you in the know is one of the guys Finn’s biological father? Hope to see the last of her soon on B&B.

Congratulations on 40 years! Y&R give Lauren and the Baldwins/Fishers a storyline and not just showcase Tracey and Christian when they have milestones! What of waste talent!(Tracey Bregman, Christian LeBlanc, Greg, Elizabeth Hendrickson and Judith Chapman)

Enjoyed the flashbacks but it was sad to realize how bad this show is now. Lauren’s dress was awful pretty lady with a horrible dress .

I will never understand why Doug Davidson was treated so badly just confused why they treated him as they did ! I guess social media can destroy you

You don’t tell a story off camera this story about Fen told in two minutes JG has to go o they do not stand a chance

These flashbacks remind us how great the writing and sets USED to be. It’s time for a storyline, Finmores stores with a set and maybe a home. Too bad they couldn’t get her “mom” to pop in from Salem! Right now the Baldwin’s are nothing but under 5 line players. Sad.

This was an excellent tribute to Ms Bregman and a well-done character retrospective. I was reminded just how many compelling stories in which Lauren was front and center. She truly was a young and restless character! Wonderful to see many clips. Sadly, it brought light to the fact Y&R has this wealth of talent in the Fenmore/Baldwin circle yet keeps them on the back burner. Oh, I loved the ‘Fen is gay’ surprise. That would launch at least a short-term story to keep Lauren and family on screen. It would have been fun to use the award event to bring many characters together. Those scenes are few and far between since Covid. Brava, Ms Bregman, and thank you Y&R for a wonderful hour.

We do not see much of her…which is good.

I do her on her 40 years!

David Gail, Former ‘Port Charles’ Star, Cause of Death Determined; Mother Speaks Out on Dangers of Pharmaceutical Addiction and Fentanyl Epidemic

David Gail, who played Dr. Joe Scanlon on Port Charles (1999-2000), and who also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, cause of death has been revealed. The actor passed away on January 16th at the age of 58.

According to the toxicology report, Gail died of anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is a brain injury caused by a a lack of blood flow, following resuscitation from cardio pulmonary arrest due to the drug intoxication. The report also revealed that drug intoxication with amphetamines, cocaine, ethanol and fentanyl, were also involved.

Gail’s mother, Mary Painter, spoke to Deadline on the findings and opened up to what led to David’s ultimate passing. Gail was found unresponsive by emergency personnel who attempted to save his life. Eventually, he was put on life support where he remained for several days till his death.

In her statement, Painter shared, “It breaks my heart to learn that my son died this way. David became reliant on medicine many years ago, after multiple surgeries on his hands and wrists. He lived in enough pain to prevent him from working for almost a decade, with relief only achieved through full disability, physical therapy and pain medicine.”

She then added, “He struggled to stop taking pharmaceuticals and did before turning toward a more Eastern pain management including acupuncture and natural medicines. I can only assume that his former opioid dependence played a part in self-medicating from uncontrolled sources.”

David’s mother expressed a very important social message for our time about addiction that she hopes other parents remain aware of: “David’s death shines a light on the countless innocent victims of pharmaceutical addiction and the fentanyl epidemic that has taken so many of our sons and daughters. Please keep David and others battling pain or dependence, in your thoughts and prayers.”

Gail’s other TV credits included parts on: Savannah, Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, Doogie Howser, M.D., and Perfect Opposites.
