If you caught Tuesday’s night anniversary celebration for Greg Rikaart (Leo, DAYS, Kevin Y&R), who is celebrating his 20th year on soaps this month, and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe, Y&R, ex-Frankie/Maggie, AMC, ex-Margaux, GH) who is celebrating her 15th year on Y&R and 22nd in daytime, you know that several of their co-stars, past and present, popped in throughout the livestream event on You Tube’s Michael Farman Channel.

Sharing stories and offering their ‘congrats’ to their friends and colleagues were: Rebecca Budig (ex-Greenlee, AMC, ex-Hayden GH), Tamara Braun (ex-Reese, AMC, ex-Carly, GH, ex-Kim, GH and Ex-Ava, Days), Peter Porte (Dimitri, DAYS, ex-Ricky, Y&R), Kate Linder (Esther, Y&R), Zach Tinker (Sonny, DAYS, Fen, Y&R) and Judith Chapman (Gloria, Y&R and ex-Natalie, ATWT, ex-Ginny, GH ex-Charlotte, Ryan’s Hope and ex-Angelica, DAYS).

However, that was not all! Several of Greg and Liz’s co-stars, then and now, who could not make the livestream due to travel schedules, sent along heartfelt messages to share with Rikaart and Hendrickson. During the show, Michael Fairman read along these notes from: Eden Riegel (ex-Bianca, AMC, ex-Heather, Y&R), Emily O’Brien (Gwen, DAYS, ex-Jana, Y&R, and Billy Flynn (Chad, DAYS).

Throughout the hour+ event, Greg and Liz reminisced about on: how they fought to have Kevin and Chloe wind up together on Y&R, including both naming their same favorite scene together, how both have played gay characters in their daytime careers, and how playing an LGBTQ+ character on the soaps has evolved since back in Liz’s All My Children days in 2001 and Frankie and then Maggie’s on-screen coupling with Bianca, to how Greg as Leo Stark and DAYS have had more freedom and been able to modernize their approach some 22 years later.

You can watch the livestream celebration with Greg and Liz below; as all of their ‘special guests’ offered up insight and praise on these two talented and beloved performers and more.

Share your congrats to Liz and Greg on a job well-done, and let us know your favorite moment from the celebration in the comment section.

I love them both; they give me a warm, nostalgic feeling for Y&R that I don’t get much these days. It’s unforgivable that Greg hasn’t had any scenes with Daniel, his YR BFF. Male friendships are so poorly represented on daytime and I’d love to see them reunite. I’d also like Chloe and Sally to become major players with a new venture.

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.
