What Is The New Year's Eve Wedding Shocker On The Young and the Restless?



A New Year’s Eve in Genoa City is never just walk in the park! In fact, plenty goes down, and as the ball drops and we ring in 2016, looks like 2015 will go out like a lion!

In the latest promo for this week’s Y&R, the guests are assembled for Stitch (Sean Carrigan) and Abby’s (Melissa Ordway) New Year’s Eve wedding! Victor (Eric Braeden) is seen walking his daughter down the aisle, but something goes amiss.  When does it happen? Before the wedding, or after?  While there will be some interesting midnight kisses, and some resolutions, especially one coming from Billy Abbott (Burgess Jenkins), “This will be my last best bet ever,” he exclaims, the citizens of this town have their share of drama set to unfold at the stroke of midnight.

Meanwhile, all signs point to something being amiss with Ashley (Eileen Davidson)!  What does she have to say to Dr. Neville (Michael E. Knight) that may be a game-changer?

Watch the latest CBS Daytime promo after the jump, and then weigh-in! What will be Ashley’s confession? Why are Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) and Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) faces looking so stunned (pictured above)?  Is the wedding shocker about Ashley, or something or someone  else?  Share your theories in the comment section below!

    I think it has something to do with Ashley and the headaches she’s been getting lately

      Looks like Im a bad influence on you…lol…i like your idea better than mine…i was going to say Ashley’s headaches were cause by a fall out a window and they learn she is has been living a double life…she is a wanted criminal Kristen Dimera!…havent been watching much of these shows lately…only glimpses…had two family emergencies over Christmas and one family member is still in the hospital…ive been ill with the flu and have spent much time in bed but i have some brief good moments to take advantage of to post…later friend!!!

        Awwww. So sorry, Jimmy. I’m glad you’re on the mend, though.
        I love the Ashley/Kristen connection. That would be the killer of all killers. Imagine that.
        Listen up, please get better soon. We need your audacious and so entertaining comments. Please try to have a great and healthy New Year, my friend. Much love.

        Going to run with Judy–Neville saves Ashely but is still regarded as the town pariah while Neil is given full credit for saving her life, and is hereby declared Saint Neil.

      • CeeCee

        December 29, 2015 at 10:18 am

        Best answer, Judy K. I agree.

    What did Melissa Claire Egan do to her hair? And why? That better be a wig.

    • Timmm

      It looks hideous!

      • Kimmy

        December 29, 2015 at 12:54 pm

        She put her hair up and it makes it look like she cut it. At first, I thought she had cut it, too!

  5. Casey

    December 28, 2015 at 11:04 pm

    I think Ashley will declare her love for Stitch

    • CeeCee

      December 29, 2015 at 10:20 am

      That’s a good one, Casey. Maybe her tumor is making her act brazen and she spits it all out!

      • CeeCee

        December 29, 2015 at 11:06 am

        Correction….brazenly, not brazen.

      • CeeCee

        December 29, 2015 at 1:35 pm

        Oh, my gosh. Really? I feel so guilty and so sorry for Burgess now. I guess he really needs the money. But, at least he’s shopping around for a job ….’cause he ain’t cutting it as an actor. I wish him well.

  6. Beth

    December 29, 2015 at 3:01 am

    Ashley collapses, gasp! Gasp! ! $×€£* Dr. Neville can you save her or not? 1)She will come to enough g to insist that the wedding continue because…she’s doing and wants to see her baby happy and begs Ben to make that happen despite their undying love for each other. 2) the wedding is “postponed” until it’s clear Ashley is going to survive. 3) Billy shows up drunk and crashes the scene, literally.

    I can’t wait for Burgess to leave. Anyone know his last airdate?

    • Timmm

      December 29, 2015 at 9:13 am

      I think Jason Thompson starts on January 14th. I’m glad for the recast but I actually thought Burgess has been doing a better job since he announced his departure?

        Funny you say that… this is no joke…. I live in Chicago and Burgess was on a commercial the other day for a low end Furniture Store called “The DUMP”… I was literally shocked…. and it was most certainly Burgess….

      • Ron

        December 30, 2015 at 5:11 pm

        Saw the Dump commercial too (I also live in Chicago suburbs) and it was Burgess. He was very different from the Billy role. I was glad he found other work.

      I do not, but I do understand what you mean. Burgess has done a good job but every time I see him all I can think is,”You’re still here?”

      I have given up on Young and restless and Bold and beautiful and now only watch Days of our lives . It is a million times better ! Patch and Kayla are back on and A Martinez who played Cruz on Santa Barbara now plays eduardo !

      • Mo

    December 29, 2015 at 6:18 am

    Seriously speaking? What can be so shocking that we haven’t already suspected? There will be, as usual, a catastrophe with one or all the aforementioned characters, with Dr. Neville smack in the middle of it.
    I admire the ‘gods’ for trying to create suspense, but my interest is not whet. Is Ashley dying? Is there a video of Ben snd Ashley in the shower? Is Dr. Neville someone’s list father? Whatever it is, won’t be such a shocker. I hope I am wrong. This show’s tree really needs to be shaken…..I hope my favorite show will not disappoint me.

    • Timmm

      December 29, 2015 at 9:16 am

      Video in the shower footage would be more likely to happen on GH. Your right CeeCee, its probably a weak teaser to bait us into 2016!

      • CeeCee

        December 29, 2015 at 11:15 am

        Great mind, Timmm; great minds…..

    “I can’t believe it’s finally here. My wedding day.”

    Please Abby. You have been engaged for a nanosecond. Let’s talk about how it is “finally here” when you have been with a guy for at least a year.

    • CeeCee

      December 29, 2015 at 10:26 am

      Lol. Too funny, Chrystie. Perhaps she means A wedding day is finally here……doesn’t matter with whom? Too bad she’s stuck with cantaloupe-head. Or, maybe NOT….. something momentous is about to happen. Oh, joy!!

      • Ron

        December 30, 2015 at 5:15 pm

        I’m glad there is an interruption because I for one do not want to see this marriage. Abby does not belong with this “doctor.” Good grief, I can’t stand this character, and the actor can’t keep his head straight for a minute– every single line is delivered with a swaying head. Bugs the crap out of me.

      • CeeCee

        December 30, 2015 at 8:35 pm

        Again…too funny, Ron. Did you notice Ben didn’t even bother shaving on his wedding day? He always looks do scruffy.

      • Ron

        December 31, 2015 at 7:26 am

        He can’t keep his head straight long enough to shave without needing medical assistance!

  14. Timmm

    December 29, 2015 at 9:23 am

    Like Mo said, Ian as the preacher and I’m hoping Pattycakes as the organist, Ghost John as the bartender, Marco shows up to cut off Jack’s ear, Murphy shows up and kicks Devon’s azz, Avery Bailey Clark delivers a freshly baked wedding cake, Michael Muhney shows up as a caterer and hits Summer over the head with a chafing dish and luckily Summer already has a sour look on her face to match the pain of the stainless steel dish as it rings off her noggin, Harding’s twin shows up to arrest the real Adam and Victor shaves his mustache. looks in the mirror and sees for the first time what a bully really looks like. DAMN IT!

    • CeeCee

      December 29, 2015 at 11:17 am

      HaHa. I love it, Timmm. But, you forgot Carmine popping out of the cake, buck naked. Oh, yeah!!

      • Timmm

        December 29, 2015 at 1:53 pm

        What a body! I forgot ALL about him! Maybe he needs to roll back into town and shake things up! Maybe we will get to see Michael and Lauren then! And Fen, he was on “Under the Dome” this past summer and he was great! Why not bring him back and dump Summer, Stitch, Devon, Marissa and Luca!

      • CeeCee

        December 29, 2015 at 2:59 pm

        Yeah, Fen turned into a real looker.
        Yuck, Luca. He doesn’t even look like a Luca. That name is as Spanish as Smith. And Marissa? Yes, she is gorgeous but what’s up with her? I suppose being close to her husband gives her the chance to one day get her daughter back. I cannot wait until peanut-head, Luca leaves. Of all the tycoons in the US to choose, they chose a Spaniard who looks nothing like a Spaniard with an Italian name? Spain is not exactly up there with lucrative businessmen roaming about, these days.
        You had mentioned on a different thread, Timmm, that Noah looks too young to be involved in such underhanded schemes as in; corporate business and machinations. I definitely agree, albeit he is older than ‘Marissa’. He just does not have that despicable aura about him. He looks like a babe in the woods,such a baby-face.regardless of the fact that TPTB are doing their best propping snd prepping him for the challenge.
        I agree, all the people you mention d ‘gotta’ go. Useless space. Later.

    Whatever it is, Charles Pratt came up with it, so it won’t be good. Sorry, but Dr. Neville is a stupid character. I’m sure Ashley has health insurance, why would you put your life in the hands of a quack rather than professionals. It doesn’t make sense. Michael E. Knight must be hard up to take on this dreadful role.

    • CeeCee

      December 29, 2015 at 1:43 pm

      Lol, Joe. Haven’t you heard? Dr. Neville has been working on this miracle drug for eons. Hilary was his Guinea pig. That is the purpose for this character. Lol.
      Of course, I agree with you, Joe. So sad to see these iconic actors/actresses being used as a means to an end, almost in a caricaturist manner.

        I love it all so far and everyone looks so pretty but I was disappointed that Bummer and Bile are back over Christmas. Why can’t they send those two back to college for a few years. They are nothing but downers.

      • CeeCee

        December 29, 2015 at 4:24 pm

    When will Lauren and Michael remarry?

    • CeeCee

      December 29, 2015 at 3:00 pm

      I did not realize they were divorced. When did that happen? Where have I been? I seriously did not know, Mo.

      • Mo

        December 30, 2015 at 6:24 am

        They divorced a while ago when Michael was going through his cancer (which apparently has been cured offscreen) and he was afraid he couldn’t be a ‘real’ husband to Lauren so he let her go. He was trying to get Lauren and Cane together and that’s what pushed Lily into Joe’s bed (she thought Cane cheated on her). They have since gotten back together and I believe they live together, but are still unmarried–unless that too happened offscreen. Maybe Y&R thought we all forgot these two are divorced.

      • Harry

        December 30, 2015 at 10:24 am

        Mo, I thought the final drafts of the divorce papers were never signed.

    Okay am I the only soap fan out there who is sick of the word “shocker”? In most cases the shocker isn’t really shocking, but just PR spin trying to create buzz for stories that are simply not well written.

    It seems nowadays no one wants to watch anything unless there is something that can trend on social media the next day, so everything has to be hyped up to sound far more exciting than it is just to get a once of attention.

    There was a time people would just tune in because they liked the show, not because they were lured there with the promise of some big event that either doesn’t live up to the hype or is so short lived that all those who came to see are gone the next day-

    It is rather sad when soap writing becomes a series of shockers with some loosely strung plots to hold them together. So the reference might be a bit late, but I say bah humbug to shockers.

      2015 Soap Story of the Year: Producers forcing soap writers to ask the WGA for waivers. The contract requires writers to be given one assignment a week. With a waiver, a writer is forced to give up a script or two a month for 52 weeks. This results in less work and a smaller paycheck. Complaints have been lodged but there is not much the WGA can do. List of Soap Writers: head writer, associate writers, breakdown writers, scriptwriters, and a script editor. Learned that each associate writer is required to write for one day in each week. Scriptwriters write the dialogue for all characters who land on their day.

        December 30, 2015 at 9:50 am

        Thanks for the info– this might explain why soaps right now seem to be written all over the map with no real flow between scripts– it is good to know even the writers aren’t thrill with this set up. Sometimes as viewers we like to blame the writers for all the ills of the genre, but as you pointed out here, they have there own struggles with management. I suppose the days when soaps were written and produced by the same person who created the show are long gone and so are stories that were creatively and intelligently woven together with a single vision in mind.

        Each network has or had a training program for writers interested in writing for the soaps. CBS (Daytime Writers Initiative Program), ABC (Daytime Writers Development Program) and NBC (NBC-TV Daytime Writers Development Program). There is no guarantee of a job after the program has been completed. Comment Reference: Web article by Julie Poll “My Life Writing for the Soaps”

    The picture of Lauren and Chelsea can’t be from the episodes because Lauren left the wedding (Why? I know, for Fenmores, but why did the writers do this?) and Chelsea’s hair is tucked up to a bob for the wedding.

  20. Joe

    December 31, 2015 at 8:24 am

    I watched the recorded show from yesterday, and had a hard time understanding how anyone at CBS would let that enormous amount of talent be wasted at the hands of Chuck Pratt. When I saw the wedding scene and saw all the actors relegated to crap, I realized that Y&R has become just like every other soap (minus B&B) with the new merry-go-round of hack writers and producers. When I saw Lucky Gold’s name in the credits, I knew the ship had sprung a leak. Y&R maintained itself based on writers who knew (or created) these characters, now it’s just a bunch of stuff that sounds like a 4th grader wrote it. I was happy to Michael Conforti contributing, but then they couldn’t even spell his name write in the opening credits (Michel.) Really????

    • Joe

      December 31, 2015 at 8:24 am

      OMG, Y&R has rubbed off on me…I meant right, not write!

    Somewhere in all these fun comments someone mentioned that Billy’s acting had picked up subsequent to the announcement that he was leaving the program. I agree. Common sense says my next comment is in the minority, however, Billy was growing on me. He was probably an unfortunate choice after Billy Miller. It was difficult to slip into that role when the first appearance of new Billy was so startlingly different. Anyway, I wish him the best. He deserves better than selling furniture.

    Lillian’s comments are quite telling. Quality has little to do with the given incentives; just numbers. Of course my watching feeds the numbers which infer quality.

    Much ado about nothing! Do we not recall the anticlimactic Feb., Nov. sweep fiascos?
    Soaps have become sad ‘rinse/repeat’ TV. None are imaginative enough to evolve; try something new – like emotionally intelligent adults.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

Breaking News

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.
