Daytime Emmy winner and fan favorite Peter Bergman is celebrating this month his 25th anniversary with The Young and the Restless playing the one and only Jack Abbott!

To kick-off the festivities, CBS Connect hosted a live event chat this week where fans on Twitter using the hashtag #AskYR posed questions to Bergman and his long time scene partner and on-screen sister, Eileen Davidson (Ashley)! During the chat, Peter revealed what he remembers of his very first day on the set, and then both he and Davidson reveal their most challenging or difficult storylines.  Peter revealed it was the “Keemo” storyline where it seemed odd talking about Jack’s years in the Vietnam war, while balancing him being in the boardroom and in corporate business at Jabot!

Eileen said one of the more difficult stories for her was Y&R creator Bill Bell’s classic storyline where Ashley has a miscarriage and then follows it up with a nervous breakdown.

One of the fun moments of the chat happened when a fan asked Peter when he will get a Twitter account, as right now the Newmans have a higher Twitter count than the Abbotts! To which Bergman replied, “As soon as hell freezes over I’m getting my Twitter account!”

Watch the entire video replay featuring Eileen and Peter after the jump! Then let us know …  do you agree with Eileen and Peter’s selection of the stories that they liked the least?  What is your favorite moment from their chat? Comment below!

Peter Bergman does not age. Hence, he’s one of the best looking men on daytime tv. Sexy doesn’t always mean shirtless. He has such a charisma about him. Hard to believe he’s in his 60’s!! He’s sexy as hell!! I would date him and i’m 30!!!

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
