Courtesy/ET

There was no greater love in the life of Neil Winters on The Young and the Restless than Drucilla Barber, and during their torrid romance, fans got to watch the stunning work of the late Kristoff St. John and Victoria Rowell.  Dru was the one true love of Neil Winters life, when all was said and done.

Speaking out for the first time in a video interview, since the devastating loss of her former screen partner and friend, Kristoff St. John, Victoria sat-down with Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier.  During the conversation and emotional talk, Rowell shares the warning signs she saw in St, John towards the end of his life, and how he never recovered from losing his son, Julian to suicide four years ago.

Victoria expressed: “He sent all of these pictures to me not to long ago, and I reached out to him because this is a red flag.  Why is he sending me these retrospective pictures of our relationship?  And I reached out to him and I said, ‘Are you OK?’   He was fine and he just sat with me.   It always was in the back of my brain as I knew he was struggling.  Maybe, Kristoff could not get the help he needed, and he was in real pain.”

Victoria says she will carry with her these remembrances on their time together as Y&R’s Neil and Drucilla:  “Joy, and when he would put his hands on my shoulders it was real.  I always felt safe.  When I look at that, it brings me such joy, and such sorrow, but love is eternal.”

Watch Victoria’s heartbreaking interview below.  Then, let us know how what you thought about the sentiments she shared via the comment below,

I always thought the love story of Neil and Dru, was one the show’s best– and I hope the show’s dislike for VR will not stop them from showcasing this romance in any future tribute memorial show.

Drucilla’s and Neil’s was one of the best love-stories, when together—-beautiful couple—-superlative storylines all around. I hope everyone one on set who knew him, and Kristoff’s family can find peace and comfort in each of his/her individual memories. ❤️

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Lieu Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
