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

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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
Guest
Ron

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.

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

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

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.… Read more »

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

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… Read more »

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
Guest
CeeCee

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

Mo
Guest

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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” NYCityWoman.com

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Comes Out as Gay

This morning on the highly-promoted sit-down interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, former ‘Bachelor’ lead Colton Underwood, revealed that he was gay and that he has finally come to terms with it.

The ex-football star shared: “Obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Underwood expressed he went through a very dark time to be able to reveal his truth: “I got into a place in my personal life that was dark and bad. I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses. I think overall the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn’t think I was ever going to share this. I would rather have died than say ‘I’m gay,’ and I think that was sort of my wake up call. There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn’t think I was going to wake up,” he said. “I didn’t have the intentions of waking up, and I did. And I think for me that was my wake up call, that, ‘This is your life. Take back control.’ I think looking back even beyond that is… even just suicidal thoughts and driving my car close to a cliff, like, ‘Oh, if this goes off the cliff, it’s not that big of a deal.’ I don’t feel that anymore.”’

As to the questions or anger that ‘Bachelor Nation’ are going to have that Underwood misled the female contestants on his season, or he duped the audience, Colton said: “I thought a lot about this…Do I regret being ‘The Bachelor?’ And handling it the way that I did?’  I do think I could have handled it better, I’ll say that. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into my own mess of figuring out who I was. I genuinely mean that, but also at the same time I can say ‘I’m sorry’ to all of those women, I can also say ‘thank you,’ because without them and without the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, I don’t know if this would have ever come out.”

Colton was highly-promoted during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor”.  He acknowledged he was indeed a virgin at that time, but it was because he was gay, but just “didn’t know how to handle it”.   Underwood also shared he was thankful to God that he was cast on the reality-competition as one of its season’s leads because he thought that would make him straight.  He told Roberts in his talk with God, ‘Finally, you’re letting me be straight. Finally, you’re giving me a wife, a fiancée, and then I’m going to have the kids, then I’m going to have the house, and then I’m going to have all this.’

As to his contentious break-up with ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Cassie Randolph, where she had at one time had a restraining order put on Underwood and later revoked it, he admitted: “I would like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up, I made a lot of bad choices.”  But told Robin Roberts, he indeed loved Cassie, sharing, “That only made it harder and more confusing for me. if I’m being very honest, I loved everything about her. And it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were, and going through that relationship with her was, because I obviously had an internal fight going on. I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish it wouldn’t have happened the way it did. I wish that I would have been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Underwood shared that his upbringing in the Catholic church and being in the world of high school, college, and pro sports contributed to why he never came out previously, citing,: ” learned in the Bible that gay is a sin. I had made mistakes in my sports and in my athletic career, and when you make mistakes, ‘that play was gay’ or that was a bad… gay was always affiliated with a connotation of negativity, and I think there’s a lot of things when I look back, like, ‘No wonder I held it in.’”

So, were you surprised that Colton revealed he was gay? How do you feel about the journey he expressed in his interview on GMA to speak his truth? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
