Courtesy/Y&RInsider

The clever minds doing some fun outreach on social media behind the scenes at CBS The Young and the Restless …  have been having some fun with their viewers and followers with their “Script Tease” posts! After giving some clues, and upon reaching a certain number of re-tweets, they reveal the answer to their clues which involves an upcoming plot point!

This week, Y&R posted a picture of Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) and tweeted:  “RT 200 times to see what Victoria’s plan is to help Victor get the upper hand against Jabot!”   After the action was done by followers, it was revealed that it has to do with the long MIA company cosmetics brand … Brash & Sassy!

In the reveal of the script tease the tweet said: “The Y&R  Script Tease has been unlocked! Watch Victoria put her plan into motion on 1/19/15! #BrashNSassy

Brash & Sassy was the cosmetics line that was run by Daddy Newman’s (Eric Braeden) little girl, Victoria in the past, and now it looks like a retooled version is on the way to go against the Jabot Cosmetics gang!

So, what do you think about Brash & Sassy making a return in story? Are you enjoying the Y&R Script Teases? Comment below!

Encouraging move by Y&R. Between revisiting Brass & Sassy vs. Jabot plus Jill, Colin, and Cane plotting to take Chancellor back from Victor, it reminds me of the kind of stories that made Y&R the #1 soap. Hopefully Mr. Pratt’s writing will be up to the task.

One thing Pratt wrote well when he wrote for Melrose Place was the corporate battle for DnD advertising, I am confident that Pratt can write this particular story well. He just needs to remember that his over-the-top plots he wrote on MP worked well for primetime and this is daytime, don’t sacrifice character for plot. He wrecked AMC, imo.

Richard…so true. When Chuck Pratt wrote for Melrose Place in the 1990’s, that D&D Advertising corporate stuff (in my opinion) was such AWESOME STORYTELLING!!!!! With that, Pratt knew WHAT THE HELL he was doing!!!!! Other stuff on other shows over the years…not so much. Nope.

We shall see, Bill. I am leaning towards agreeing with you, but I am such a loyal fan of Y&R, I want to ‘get into’ the storylines. Here we go again…recycled stories. Isn’t it time for Victor to go to Florida for the winter, wear his bermudas, pack some vodka for Nikki, and do some birdwatching? Then, there is this silly, infantile storyline ….you know, the love triangle between Jack, Phyl and whats-her-name. How old are these people?! Lordy Lord; they could be grandparents! Seriously, does anyone care about that idiotic wig? Or to whom it belongs? Or who’s the… Read more »

I take the Phyllis/Kelly baloney even a step
further back…to me, it seems more like junior

boring.
I do not care a fig about that wig.
Now when I see that trio of juveniles (Jack, too, really),
I just FF.

Amelia Heinle is not a brass and sassy actress. TPTB need to cut their losses with AH and recast the role.

Amelia Heinle was OK on AMC where she had a supporting role. I’m really not much of a fan of her take on Victoria Newman. If they recast the role with someone better I would be onboard with that. I agree she’s not Brash & Sassy, she’s more like Mopey & Snoozey.

Amelia Heinle is not convincing as a businesswoman brains. Heather Tom was the reason the original Brash & Sassy storyline seemed authentic.

I love the use of history in soaps, and the corporate intrigue is what interested me in Y&R in the first place. So while I like the concept, the “Brash & Sassy” brand name seems very outdated to me. I do like the fact that Y&R is returning to the corporate-based storylines. For awhile there it seemed like every character was in the food service/hospitality industry, which to me isn’t as exciting or glamorous as the cosmetics & fashion industry. JMO.

Y&R has really improved lately. Keep it up!

I could be on board with this so if this is Chuck Pratt’s doing I like it let’s stop making women just baby makers. Victoria was always a strong independent woman until LML started her reign of terror with this show. We have had two writing regimes have her in a storyline with who is the Daddy enough already.

How do you know? She has not been given material to work with! Don’t get me wrong Heather Tom was a great Victoria but she is not coming back let’s give AH a chance. I for one thought she deserved her emmy last year lets see what she can do let’s give her a chance! She just might surprise us

I concur… WHAT is the Y&R production TEAM doing ? that is a ridiculous picture of a woman in her prime…. it’s laughable… and arguably a disservice to the actress to be photoed as such which reminds me of when… the nuBilly started on the show… the behind the scenes tried to have Victoria fix her hair so youngish… in braid fashion… LOL she belongs with Stitch… and should be bestie BFF with Ashley… and mature interests…. she is after all… sharing her daughter with billy… Ashley needs to get over herself… and just share with Victoria… and they in… Read more »

I am an advocate of giving second chances. But, I must agree with you Lou. I do like Amelia immensely ……however, not in a business suit, per se.
She has been playing Victoria for ten years. She is no newbie deserving a second chance. How many chances does she need in the span of ten years? I liked her best with Billy a Miller, albeit she was a bit of a Debbie Downer….but she was ok.
I do not, however, want a replacent. We know what we have in Amelia as Victoria; with a recast, we might get someone worse.

I LOVE revisiting YR’s history, Brash and Sassy brings back fond memories and this is a hopeful sign of the new headwriter. However, heather tom had this role nailed with this company and story in particular and AH does not embody “brash” or “sassy” by ANY means!!! She needs to run a comb through her hair first!!! HT will ALWAYS be Victoria Newman Howard!!!!!!

Amelia / Victoria is Nun not a playar..
Victoria was horrible in her kidnapping story lol..(can only imagine this one aaha)
She sat on the floor by the door and later had lunch with her kidnapper and when a the gun was fired she looked like she was having tea..

Fact is; Victoria is at her best being a Y&R homebound ornament ..
The only thing that would get Victoria up and going is;
Stitch chasing her around the house with a pig poker / that would get her jumping/moving!!

It would make sense if there was a strong youth presence on the show like there was when Brash and Sassy first came onto the scene– but Vicky is hardly Brash or Sassy anymore – but most of the cast isn’t Young or Restless either so why not– I like blasts from the past; If they really want to make my day they should have Katie Logan from B&B be involved in crossover for the relaunch of the line (aka Heather Tom) that would be a hoot — I would love to hear say a line like “Oh yeah Brash… Read more »

AARP has people of 50 as senior citizens and they get discounts and stuff as that.. Y&R has many senior citizens (not a lot of young and restless peoples) or some are approaching that half century mark.. People to be considered ”young” in business and advertisers etc etc is under 40 (over 39 is the youth/young killer) Y&R tries to keep the old appearing as being young.. EB/Victor seems to be one and only who is natural.. Perhaps Y&R needs a name/title change.. lol All the facelifts, botox, wigs and hair extensions will keep them young as they were 20… Read more »

Don’t knock the older generation. They deserve respect. Soaps are the one genre that does not discriminate against the older generation. I look forward to seeing the older crowd doing their thing day in and day out because I belong to that generation. I have been watcing Y&R since I was a teenager. I also know that the daytime actors seem to live longer doing what they do and they look great doing it. There was once a time when they were not considered as real actors. Some of our highest paid actors on the big screen today started out… Read more »

I do not think you are knocking the ‘older generation’, su. I do not want to speak for you, or put words in your mouth, but I understand what you are saying. Yes, we need all ages, all genres on soaps…it’s what makes the world go ’round. However, these ‘older’ people should be given roles appropriate for their ages. As you try to point out, Su, no amount of Botox or hair extensions is going to change the fact that they are aging…..and, most look gorgeous….with or without the ‘artificial aid”. For instance, Kelly/Cady looks ridiculous in those tight and… Read more »

who gives a hoot ( blankety blank expletive ) what Victor wants any more?

so much retread… for Victoria and Nikolas

Nikolas has lost his manhood
Nikki pines for nothing more than distilled imbibe… can’t see passed her lost life
Victor makes you cringe in embarrass… fade near the exit

Victoria , the one Newman… with humane affect stirs her own

Nothing Brash or Sassy about AH’s Victoria Newman. This storyline only worked because of HT. Not a fan of this recycled storyline. It will only pale in stark comparison to the original.

su0000

Y&R focused on a rivalry between two or more people or families in romance or business. It uses stock themes like a cinderella (who is a rival of the male protagonist’s evil girlfriend), two brothers after one woman (or two sisters after one man) or mistaken/unknown parentage. Typically, the hero is known a month in advance..
Y&R stories most always pit one against another= boring..
As now with Kelly and Phyllis.. Jack will be made a fool of and Phyllis will be proven right.
Never any intrigue..

I am glad to see Y&R bringing back real llife events such as Michael’s cancer. My only problem with this storyline is that Michael would sacrifice his life for the sake of not being able to please his wife in bed. True love and devotion goes beyond the bedroom. It’s all or nothting. They make these two out to be the ultimate couple but as soon as there’s a heavy trial such as this prostate cancer he throws the other half of the relationship out of the window. I thought marraige involved two. I thought you became one whole person… Read more »

Hollywood Reacts to the Death of Former ‘Cheers’ Star Kirstie Alley

Over the last 24 hours, friends, colleagues and former co-star have paid tribute to Kirstie Alley, the former Cheers and Veronica Closet star, who passed away at age 71.

On Tuesday, a rep for Kirstie Alley confirmed to PEOPLE.com that the actress died from complications from Colon Cancer.

Alley rose to fame in 1987 as Rebecca Howe on NBC’s Cheers. For that tole she earned a Golden Globe for Best Actress and an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy series in1991. In 1994, she received her second Emmy win for her portrayal of Sally Goodson in David’s Mother.

Some of her other roles included: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), Summer School (1987), Look Who’s Talking (1989), It Takes Two (1995) and Drop Dead Gorgeous (1999).

Alley also starred on in other TV sitcoms such as: Veronica’s ClosetFat ActressKirstie and Scream Queens.  She later appeared on two reality series: A&E’s Kirstie Alley’s Big Life and was a celebrity competitor on season 12 of Dancing with the Stars.

Alley’s children, True and Lillie broke the news of their mother’s death via an Instagram post: “To all our friends, far and wide around the world. We are sad to inform you that our incredible, fierce and loving mother has passed away after a battle with cancer, only recently discovered. She was surrounded by her closest family and fought with great strength, leaving us with a certainty of her never-ending joy of living and whatever adventures lie ahead. As iconic as she was on screen, she was an even more amazing mother and grandmother. We are grateful to the incredible team of doctors and nurses at the Moffitt Cancer Center for their care. Our mother’s zest and passion for life, her children, grandchildren and her many animals, not to mention her eternal joy of creating, were unparalleled and leave us inspired to live life to the fullest just as she did. We thank you for your love and prayers and ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time.”

Kirstie’s controversial relationship with Scientology had been much talked about in the press and through her years in Hollywood.  The late actress shared in the past that through Scientology, it gave her the strength to climb out of her drug addiction and depression. In her 2012 memoir, The Art of Men, she noted that she stumbled upon Scientology at a very dark period in her life; that for 26 days, she drove from Kansas to Newport Beach, California, to visit a Scientology center, stopping periodically along the way to buy drugs.  After, she said Scientology helped her kicked her addition, Kirstie then became a devotee and spent decades publicly defending the church and building friendships within it, but later in life, she found some of those relationships fracture such as with Leah Ramini.

Below are some remembrances from stars from daytime, primetime, and motion pictures that offered up their sentiments on Alley’s sudden passing:

Greg Vaughan (Eric, DAYS): “I am beyond thankful to have had the pleasure to embrace your love, laughter & kindness!!! All my love & prayers”

Finola Hughes (Anna, GH): “#rip #kirstialley one of a kind”

Maksim Chmerkovskiy (DWTS) “My dearest Kirstie, We haven’t spoken lately and I’ll tell you everything when I finally see you, but for now I want to say that I love you very much and I wish you the most peaceful rest. You were one of the most unique people I have ever met and easily one of the brightest moments of my personal and professional life.  Some of our relationship is heavily documented. Most of it is known to select few. All of it was like a wild rollercoaster. From Maude to DJ Lil Buttercup you were always all in for life. As I’m typing this, memories of our time together rush to my head, I remember how absolutely wild you were and I start to tear up. Something you’d absolutely hate. And now I can’t help but smile because I remembered exactly what you wanted me to say at your funeral. Don’t think I can do it here… I thought you’d be around forever.  I wish we spoke often. Thank you for everything. I love you Kirstie Alley”

Photo: NBC

Ted Danson (ex-Cheers, ex-Mr. Mayor, ex-AW):  “I was on a plane today and did something I rarely do. “I watched an old episode of Cheers.  It was the episode where Tom Berenger proposes to Kirstie, who keeps saying no, even though she desperately wants to say yes. Kirstie was truly brilliant in it. Her ability to play a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown was both moving and hysterically funny,  She made me laugh 30 years ago when she shot that scene, and she made me laugh today just as hard. As I got off the plane, I heard that Kirstie had died. I am so sad and so grateful for all the times she made me laugh. I send my love to her children. As they well know, their mother had a heart of gold. I will miss her.”

Kelsey Grammar (ex-Cheers): “I always believed grief for a public figure is a private matter, but I will say I loved her.”

Rhea Perlman (ex-Cheers): “Kirstie was a unique and wonderful person and friend. Her joy of being was boundless. We became friends almost instantly when she joined the cast of Cheers. She loved kids and my kids loved her too. We had sleepovers at her house, with treasure hunts that she created.  She had massive Halloween and Easter parties, and invited the entire crew of the show, and their families. She wanted everyone to feel included. She loved her children deeply. I’ve never met anyone remotely like her. I feel so thankful to have known her. I’m going to miss her very, very much.”

John Travolta: “Kirstie was one of the most special relationships I’ve ever had.  I love you Kirstie. I know we will see each other again.”

Jamie Lee Curtis: “I’ve just heard the sad news that Kirstie Alley has died. She was a great comic foil in Scream Queens and a beautiful mama bear in her very real life. She helped me buy onesies for my family that year for Christmas. We agreed to disagree about some things but had a mutual respect and connection. Sad news.”

Harrison Wagner, Son of GH’s Kristina Wagner and Jack Wagner, Cause of Death Determined

General Hospital’s Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and former GH and B&B star Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, ex-Nick) have been mourning the loss of their beloved son, Harrison Wagner, since he passed away this past June at the age of 27.

Harrison was found in a parking lot and his cause of death was initially deferred.  Now, according to a report from PEOPLE.com, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner officials have updated Harrison’s death as an “accident,” with Fentanyl and Alprazolam (the generic name for Xanax) as the official cause.

Courtesy/HarrisonWagnerIG

Following his passing, Kristina and Jack created the Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund to assist other young men who battle addiction to be able to afford getting into a recovery community.

Just a few days ago on December 1st, Kristina remembered her son on what would have been his 28th birthday with a touching Instagram post. It included a video clip of Harrison dancing along with the words: “Sometimes I feel like a pinned butterfly. There’s no second chance. There’s no see-him-again. There’s no nothing. He’s not coming back. It’s final. But life goes on. How do I spend the rest of my own without Harrison in it? What does it mean to be ‘all right’ after the death of your child, your blood? The pain will never go away. Today is Harrison’s birthdate. I had the privilege to know him for 27 incredible years. Harrison was larger than life, but beneath his commanding presence was vulnerability and compassion. He understood his own defects and worked hard to turn them around, to strengthen his positive attributes. He was a good listener and stood up for others when they couldn’t speak for themselves. He is missed. Happy Birthday, Harrison. To all bereaved parents: May you find peace. Let’s stick around and see what’s in store for our extraordinary lives.”

Photo: KWagnerIG

Jack and Kristina have two sons together, the late Harrison, and their eldest son, Peter (age 31).  The actors were previously married from 1993 to 2006.

We continue to offer our condolences to Jack, Kristina, and Peter through this difficult time, and hope that from Harrison’s passing, that the scholarship fund in his name, will help others.

Share your thoughts on the closing of the case on Harrison Wagner’s death, and send your continued condolences to Jack and Kristina via the comment section below.

The Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund notes that if you have a loved one that is in need of help with their substance abuse, please give them call at 888-977-4549 to learn more about the recovery options available.
