Y&R is pulling out all the stops for the upcoming 11,000 episode milestone to air on CBS on September 1st.  Now comes word via TV Insider’s Michael Logan that none other than the co-creator of the iconic number one-rated daytime drama, Lee Phillip Bell will make a cameo in the episode as well!

Look for this beloved matriarch of the Bell family to appear in a scene with her real-life daughter, Lauralee Bell (Christine) and the shows longest running cast member Doug Davidson (Paul).

Where will the scene go down?  But of course, the Genoa City Athletic Club!  With so many accolades, Daytime Emmys, and more, Y&R continues to be the soap’s biggest juggernaut, while the Bell family continues to impress as the first family of daytime drama.

Yesterday the show actually filmed the 11,000 episode with Lauralee Bell tweeting, “Home from Venice to tape show 11,000 at Y&R today! Congrats to all for this remarkable episode number.”  She added today, “What a treat this was to film!”, when talking about her upcoming on-air scenes with her mom.

Share your thoughts on the inclusion of Y&R co-creator Lee Phillip Bell to be part of this historic on-air milestone? How will Christine and her mother interact in their scene?  How do you think they will know each other?  Comment below!

LOL oh wow!
Lauralee Bell (Christine) is the daughter of the creator lol nepotism at its’ best lol .
((I like Paul. but never liked Christine))
Sept 1st and it’s already been filmed so we might be seeing promotional clips, soon ..

Since she is more-so a walk in their meeting will not be connecting/personal.

Their screen;
They will be strangers who meet on a park bench (Chancellor Park) and have a conversation, a touching one..

(you heard it here first, folks !! LOL


Lee Phillip Bell will be in Chancellor Park because she is long last friend of Katherine’s and she’s there paying respect..
that is where they will meet and that is the touching conversation they will have about knowing the great Katherine ..

IF, it is not written that way, then shame on the writers,


This is a lovely gesture and something to look forward to seeing. I so wish Bill Bell’s legacy as a storyteller was evident in the current presentation. That man was amazing as evidenced by his body of work and ow he continues to be regarded by those who knew him.

Too bad she couldn’t write the episode too because once when doing an web search I discovered this lady wrote more episodes than her husband Bill. Bill had the vision and this lady took the vision and brought it too life– she has script credit for about 4000 of those 11,000 episodes— so I am glad they included her although I am sure most viewers will not know who she is and what she contributed to the show to make it such a lasting legacy with such a loyal fan base—but I hope the 11,000 episode will be better than the 10,000 episode– that never did live up to the hype


Is Chloe’s daughter Bella named in honor of the Bells? Hendrickson stated that one of her scenes, where Chloe goes to say goodbye to Delia, was cut because it may have been too intense and raw. Now would be a good time to broadcast this scene in a flashback. It explains Chloe’s motivation clearly.

Kate Valentine is the first character on Y&R to be named after Katherine. Jeanne Cooper, as Katherine Chancellor, worked with two characters that carry this legacy: Chloe Mitchell and Delia Abbott. What a great honor for Hendrickson!


No flashbacks please! I’m tired of rehashing the death of a child!


Agree to disagree! The death of Delia still resonates to this day. When an actor gives a worthy performance, it should not end on the cutting room floor.


I hope everyone introduces themselves because she wont recognize the empire her husband once ruled!


The sheer brilliance of your comment made my day!! Kudos!


Thanks K.


Tim…I was thinking the exact same thing. Y-e-p. Also, the ’empire’…which has CRUMBLED into the following: Iffy re-casts, the TOTALLY UNNECESSARY remodeling of The Newman Ranch (I know, I know…Cuckoo Sharon burned the original Newman Ranch down to the ground.), RUINING AND DISRESPECTING the beautiful, beloved and breathtaking Chancellor Estate with that UNNECESSARY AND EVEN MORE TACKY makeover, TOTALLY ANNOYING CHARACTERS (Devon, Dylan, Hilary, Lily, Summer, etc.), BOTH hit and miss story-lines, etc. Beyond sad.

Later, dude.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Gabi’s Revenge Plot Begins To Unfold; Watch Out Abigail and Stefan!

Evil Gabi is back on Days of our Lives, and that means some great material for Camila Banus (Gabi) to sink her teeth into. After all, who doesn’t love a Gabi scorned?!  This week, viewers already learned that Gabi has already switched the paternity results to make it look as if Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of Abigail’s (Marci Miller) unborn child, when it is really Chad’s (Billy Flynn).  To top it off, she is manipulating and “advising” Gabi on what to do about her paternity secret

On Tuesday’s episode while in the park, Gabi reflects on changing the paternity results and says out loud to herself: “Karma is a bitch. Since you and Stefan ruined my life …” but she stops talking when all of a sudden Stefan appears.  He wants to talk about “Gabi Chic”, and their mutual business interests, but she’s not having it one bit!

She blasts him and his fictitious girlfriend “Gabby” for framing her for murder, and all that has transpired in her life since then including: being beaten up in prison, which has left her unable to have any more children, due to a surgery and an infection she developed while in the slammer for a crime she did not commit.

Gabi says she is not like her ‘Madre.”  She believes in revenge and that people like him deserve to be punished, and that she wants to see him suffer like she has. Stefan is hoping that Gabi will eventually trust him, put the past behind them, and work together.  Stefan exits and once alone, a vengeful Gabi says:  “You and your little whore, Gabby, took something from me that’s precious. Now it’s my turn to take something from you.”

Then to put an exclamation point on her revenge plot, Gabi grins that “all hell will break loose.”

Are you glad to see Gabi back with an edge as she plans to make Abigail and Stefan’s life a living hell? What do you think will be the next move in her master plot? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?
