Billy Miller who was last in the news with whether or not he is staying put at the number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless, has made some headlines again! But this time for an accident on the set of Y&R during a scene, in which the Daytime Emmy Award winning actor broke his hand!

Soaps In Depth reported from Miller, “There was a big scene — and I got really into it, and broke my hand. It was a good scene. It wasn’t smart, but for the [scene] it’s as close to truth as you can possibly get, and I guess that’s what you strive for. I wouldn’t recommend it, though. I shattered my knuckle and broke my hand.” Miller proved to be a trooper, though, noting, “I finished out my day, shot another couple of hours, and then went to the hospital. I had it reset. Fun times!” Because the injury actually works for the storyline, Miller says that the writers promptly wrote it into the show.”

So the question is: What big heated moment occurred for Billy Abbott that caused Miller’s injury? Any guesses? Stay tuned.

I love Billy Miller. I think he one of the best actors in soaps. When he acts it seems very effortless and natural.When the adoption story comes to fruition, if it does, I think all hell will break loose when everything is exposed. I think we will see some great performances . I hope they stop the Sharon story and leave her in the barn. High heels and low cut tops included………

Wishing Billy a speedy recovery on his hand injury. Y&R is much better with Billy on it.

I knew the moment I saw Billy do that, and how red his hand was afterward, that he probably didn’t intend to hit that table so hard. I was sure he had done some damage. Love you Billy! Great scene 🙂 Get well soon!

With other soaps dropping like flies I have always stayed true to Y&R, more so now then ever because of Billy Miller.

Mr. Miller is a great actor, I love it when he is pitted against Eric Braedan.

I hope the PTB do every thing they can to keep him on Y&R/

Luv ya Billy Boy…lol

It’s kind of funny to see that him hitting the table actually did break his hand like they said in the scripts!

Hope Miller stays in GC, he is one of the BEST actors on show. A ytrue ABBOT in every sense. I can definitely see him steering the ship of Y&R into the future…He truly is perfect and seems genetically an Abbot. (Even looks like one.)
Case in Point- Broke his hand FOR REAL, while Acting!?! Who does that? Hey Y&R- heads up- DON’T let this fish go! Give Miller what he wants…$$$. He must stay!

side note- I too recently broke my hand. I knew his cast was for real. Most painful experience next to childbirth ive ever experienced. Definitely deserves a raise dont ya think??? Love his drunken antics- must have studied himself drunk many a times, cuz he acts drunk-all too well 😉

Oh bring Billy back, and right into Victoria’s arms. It bothers me to see Chloe keep Dellia away from Billy, then blame him for leaving. Hey Y&R writers … make things right again!

Love Billy Miller, I predict that he will become a major motion picture star. He has “Star Quality” that is for sure. He is also a very fine actor,he has it all, wildly handsome good looks and he just makes me smile whenever he is on camera.Would love to see him do more scenes with Eric Braeden,they are both great in scenes together, two exciting actors. Mr. Braeden is such a great actor,even as good as Billy Miller is, he could learn a great deal by working more with the great Eric Braeden.I hope that Mr Billy Miller stays on Y&R fo now.He will be a big star one day.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
