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

And——
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!

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.

Christie expressed: “Oh my goodness, just starting to feel ok on this end. My husband Tom and I have had coronavirus fairly bad. Not as bad as some, no hospital needed. Hope your all well! I’m sure at this stage you all know of someone with it? When you get it, you can’t call the grandparents for help, cause they will get sick. We know about 10 people in our little circle that have had it. Like clockwork, Day 7,8,&9 were tricky and haven’t been able to taste food for a while. So excited to be in the land of the living again & start exercising…soon. Thanks for all the love. Stay safe!”

Send your well-wishes to Christie and Tom as they are on currently getting stronger and recovering from the virus via the comment section below.

California.  Deadline broke the story of the decision to postpone daytime’s biggest night, for now.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
