Donny took to his Instagram account to announce he landed the part on Y&R expressing:  “Soooo… this happened. I signed a multi-year deal and have now been working on “The Young and the Restless” for 6 weeks. And now, I finally get to share it with my friends and family. I will be playing Chance Chancellor. It’s been a fun and amazing ride so far. Easily the hardest, fast paced job I’ve ever had and it’s as equally rewarding. I feel so very thankful and grateful for this new journey. I want to thank my manager, @jpriluck123 and my agents, @hritalent Thank you Team. Here we go.
My first episode will air on 11/08, definitely tune in the 11th-15th. The stories are getting good.”

Circle this Friday, November 8th when Chance makes a stunning re-emergence on the Genoa City canvas.

Who is this Phillip?

Jill’s grandson from Phillip Chancellor lll,,,,her son with Katherine’s husband, Phillip ll. His smother is Nina Webster . I hope they also bring her back,,,,,Tisha Cast is wonderful.

Jill’s son Phillip lives in Australia and revealed he was gay after Cane impersonated him (that’s how Cane came onto the show)

This got my attention. Nice that the character is older. Welcome to the party, Mr. Boaz. Be present and take it in. There are no fans like soap fans…take any criticism with a grain of salt. Chance Chancellor…great soap name. Nina, come home!

It’s just sad that after Kristoff that his buddies and the Winters story line is being lost, Lilly could have been replaced and losing Cane/Daniel Goddard is just wrong! It’s just heartbreaking! You’ll miss him..hopefully he will get a great new part and Y/R will just keep hiring newbies that we could care less about.

I too need some help, and my questions don’t necessarily fall into line with the issue at hand, but who is Kyle’s mother and who is Billy’s mother?

I do recall Nina. There is a recollection that during her time on the program, perhaps one of her relatives, jumped out of a window. Nina would be a great character to return.

Help! So many new characters made one realize that I don’t recall some basic concepts of the program. Thanks!

Tani…Kyle’s mum is Diane Jenkins. She was killed by Nikki Newman. Billy’s mum is Jill Foster Abbott and he was fathered by the late John Abbott. Hope this helps! X

Thank you. I think I knew Jill was Billy’s mom, but must have been traveling regarding Kyle; that information is new to me. So, Nikki killed someone? OK!

Tani Sterling… Our Nikki has actually killed several times through the years; starting with her father, Nick Reed (who was actually played by the same actor who played REX STERLING many years later), and apparently when she was a child having shot and killed Bobby Marsino’s brother by accident while playing with a gun, and then Diane Jenkins who was killed by a blow to the head! She has been around the block quite a bit has our Nikki! X

I have no memory of Nikki killing Dianne, and I would have been watching back then. How come she didn’t go to jail. Also interesting that Kyle hasn’t got resentment for the woman that killed his mother.

stevie g…You know what, you are correct and I do apologize. The story line dragged on for six months and Nikki was accused of killing Diane in self defence. A video later proved that Deacon Sharpe (who was married to Nikki at the time) actually gave Diane the fatal blow to the head with a rock. The story dragged on for so long I had quite forgotten that bit! Soz! X

What is Phillip up to? We know it has something to do with Adam and Chelsea…

What is Chance up to? We know it has something to do with Chelsea and Adam……but,what?

I know cane is up to “no good” with Catherine’s $!!!

Stay calm, he’ll be gone soon.

OMG, he looks like Steve Burton’s younger brother. I like him already, of course I’ve been fooled before. I sure don’t want to see him with Phyllis, Abby maybe.

I also thought he looked a lot like Steve Burton. I did a double take!

Danielle, So glad someone finally agrees with me. I could not believe the resemblance, even the crashing through the ceiling like Jason.
Who do you think they will pair him up with? Looked like today that he kind of liked Abby, of course Phyllis had to push her big nose in, as usual. Sorry, Iam not one of her fans.

His character is so arrogant, but I remember him as a nice guy. He also seems a lot older than he should be, its odd that he seems only ten years younger than Cane, yet Cane was once assumed to be Phillip, Chances Dad. It was his half brother Ronin that was more arrogant. I thought Ronan was the FBI agent and not Chase. Am I wrong? Chase was previously involved with Chloe on the show.

I loved the character of Ronan and the actor who played him. SEXY!

The new Chance is very good looking and doing a great job in the role of him!!!!!!

Kimberlin Brown ‘Killed-Off’ as Sheila Carter on The Bold and the Beautiful in Shocking Twist

The Monday, February 26th episode of CBS daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful brought with it the apparent end to one of the all-time villains of soap opera.

In story, Steffy Forrester (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) was being stalked by Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) in the dark. Eventually, Steffy stabs Sheila in the heart with a knife and she apparently dies.

Speaking with TV Insider, Brown admitted that it is extremely hard to leave a now iconic role she made soap-famous since 1990 on first The Young and the Restless and then The Bold and the Beautiful.

Kimberlin expressed: “It’s a tough place for me to be in right now; I’m not going to lie about this. I guess if anyone were going to take Sheila down, I’m happy it’s Steffy. I just wish that no one was taking Sheila down.”  Three time Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood expressed: “It’s bittersweet because I absolutely love working with Kimberlin; she is just the consummate professional.”


However, the stabbing is vindication for Steffy as Wood related, “This is her moment. How long has it taken Steffy to take her down and it’s finally happening, so it’s going to be a big shock.”

As to her B&B death scene and to her future plans, Brown revealed, “Laying there on that floor when the paramedics pronounce the time of death, my eyes were closed and you’re holding your breath so it doesn’t look like you’re breathing. It was just like, ‘Wow, OK, I guess we’ll have to see what might come next for me.’”


If this holds up and Sheila is “dead” dead, it will open up the story and trouble in the marriage of Finn (Tanner Novlan) and Steffy, because ultimately, Steffy killed her husband’s biological mother.

This is leading many to believe this move will bring Steffy back together with Liam (Scott Clifton) while Finn and Hope (Annika Noelle) draw closer. Is that part of the reason for Sheila’s death? Stay tuned.

David Gail, Former ‘Port Charles’ Star, Cause of Death Determined; Mother Speaks Out on Dangers of Pharmaceutical Addiction and Fentanyl Epidemic

David Gail, who played Dr. Joe Scanlon on Port Charles (1999-2000), and who also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, cause of death has been revealed. The actor passed away on January 16th at the age of 58.

According to the toxicology report, Gail died of anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is a brain injury caused by a a lack of blood flow, following resuscitation from cardio pulmonary arrest due to the drug intoxication. The report also revealed that drug intoxication with amphetamines, cocaine, ethanol and fentanyl, were also involved.

Gail’s mother, Mary Painter, spoke to Deadline on the findings and opened up to what led to David’s ultimate passing. Gail was found unresponsive by emergency personnel who attempted to save his life. Eventually, he was put on life support where he remained for several days till his death.

In her statement, Painter shared, “It breaks my heart to learn that my son died this way. David became reliant on medicine many years ago, after multiple surgeries on his hands and wrists. He lived in enough pain to prevent him from working for almost a decade, with relief only achieved through full disability, physical therapy and pain medicine.”

She then added, “He struggled to stop taking pharmaceuticals and did before turning toward a more Eastern pain management including acupuncture and natural medicines. I can only assume that his former opioid dependence played a part in self-medicating from uncontrolled sources.”

David’s mother expressed a very important social message for our time about addiction that she hopes other parents remain aware of: “David’s death shines a light on the countless innocent victims of pharmaceutical addiction and the fentanyl epidemic that has taken so many of our sons and daughters. Please keep David and others battling pain or dependence, in your thoughts and prayers.”

Gail’s other TV credits included parts on: Savannah, Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, Doogie Howser, M.D., and Perfect Opposites.
