Eric Braeden makes his return as Victor Newman The Young and the Restless, this Friday January 15th after his very famous contract negotiations with Sony and the series.  Braeden spoke with TV Guide Magazine on his re-emergence in Genoa City and gave insight into the contract talks and the state of genre.  Here are a few excerpts:

Braeden on Victor Newman’s agenda, and who is on his new hit list for revenge: “He’s salivating for revenge. Nothing explosive. He’s angry and bitter but he’s going to play it very cool, very Machiavellian. It all unfolds in a very delicious manner and I’m enjoying it enormously. [Laughs] I like to get even.”

Braeden on if Sony was to scared to sit down and talk with the soap mega-superstar: [Laughs]” Look, the business as a whole has taken a hit and I’d have to be deaf and dumb not to know that, so obviously one is willing to make concessions. But approach me. Talk to me. Sit me down. Eye to eye. And then we can talk business. Anyway, we finally came to a conclusion and here I am.”

Braeden on what it was like during this three months away from working at CBS: “It was rather strange. I read a lot. I was dallying with the notion of writing an autobiography. There were some offers from here and there that I was entertaining. I spent a lot of time with my granddaughter. I hadn’t settled on what I was going to do next, but I need to be active, all the time. I realized that I’m still so full of piss and vinegar that I don’t feel like stepping down. I take enormous joy in the process of acting. It still fascinates me to take something that someone wrote—whether I like it or not—and turn that into something that is real. I love that process and have never tired of it, not after all these years. I still find it challenging!”

I am so glad Victor is back!!! I hope he finally gets Adam and crushes him like a bug. What Adam did about the baby switch with Sharon and Ashley is unforgettable and he should be punished and humilated. Go Victor!!!

BTW – I am sick to death of Amber and her ridiculous story line.

I LOVE you Victor! Y&R is the only soap I watch and without Eric, I was done. I was so happy to see him on Friday’s show, my husband thought I was crazy. As long as there is Victor, it is more than a soap. Hurray! Welcome back Victor!! I missed you…

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

DAYS Camila Banus Talks Stabi’s Heartbreaking Love Story; Matthew Ashford Melissa Reeves Chat On JnJ Reunion On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

In the latest can’t miss ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives‘ podcast, two major interviews are the focus of the episode.  First, Camila Banus who had been turning in bravura performances as Gabi, discusses with host. Michael Fairman, her reaction to finding out that Brandon Barash (Stefan) was being killed-off the NBC soap opera, now that Gabi’s love, Stefan is brain-dead.

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.

Then in a very special roundtable chat, Matthew Ashford (Jack) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) chat with Fairman about playing those key scenes where Jack rescues Jennifer from Dr. Shah, hits his head, and then finally his memories come flooding back.   The duo known as ‘JnJ” talk about their storied on-screen history, and tease what may happen in the next leg in their storylines.
