Great news for Michael Graziadei, the former Daniel Romalotti of The Young and the Restless!  Deadline.com revealed today that the drama The Lottery, in which he stars, has been picked-up by Lifetime for a ten episode deal! 

About the background of the story of The Lottery: The series is set in a dystopian future when women have stopped having children, threatening extinction of the human race. When 100 embryos are successfully fertilized, a national lottery is held to decide the surrogates.

Lifetime’s general manager Rob Sharenow said about the project:  “The Lottery is one of the most provocative and original concepts we’ve ever seen. Tim Sexton’s unique dystopian thriller represents an exciting new direction for Lifetime and continues cable’s position on the leading edge of bold, high-quality scripted drama.”

The project, written by Sexton, stars Michael Graziadei, along with Marley Shelton, David Alpay, Martin Donovan, Lesley Ann Brandt and Louise Lombardi.

I miss him on the show and his character, but I sincerely doubt we will ever see him back on the soap; maybe one day if they ever recast Phyllis perhaps they will recast Danny– but the mother son chemistry between him and MS will never be repeated. As for this new show, it sounds strange, but different can either take off or it can flop big time, lets hope his sake it is former not the latter.

I’ll watch to support Michael but it’s not something I would watch if he weren’t in it.

I will so watch The Lottery with Michael. I was so sad to see him leave and the “leaving” continued until MM &BM. Too much talent lost on Y&R, but really, really excited for Michael! Way to persevere! GOOD LUCK, Michael! And Thanks, Lifetime, for an interesting concept to watch!

I think Daniel died for me the day they got rid of the “real Lily”-Davetta Sherwood. She was Dru’s mini me, CK sucks and quite frankly is a miscast for the part of the daughter of Dru- there was a mix up at the hospital. Heck I would rather Hillary be Dru’s daughter than CK’s version of Lily. She lacks that toughness in her demeanor and she doesn’t have street smarts. I hope he never returns because I no longer watch Y&R! So kuddos to him!

In the 33 years I have been watching “Young and the Restless,” Daniel was my No. 1 least favorite character of all-time.

No. 2 was Amber.

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
