Recently on The Young and the Restless, Eric Braeden (Victor) illustrated to all of us why he is still one of daytime’s greatest icons.  Braeden is able to balance the strength and determination and treachery of Victor Newman and juxtapose it against his heartfelt love for his family and his deep emotional ties with them.  Never was that more apparent than in the complex final scenes between Braeden and the exited Justin Hartley as Adam Newman.  In those scenes, centered around the recent 11,000 episode of the top-rated soap, Victor and Adam share a gut-wrenching emotional farewell.

On-Air On-Soaps chatted with Eric Braeden at last week’s Y&R 11,ooo episode on set celebraton at CBS Television City where he chatted about Hartley, and Eric’s admiration for the cast, the writers, and you, the loyal fans, of the 43-year-old series.

On his final scenes with Justin Hartley, Braeden related: “Justin Hartley is a wonderful actor to work with.  I miss working with him and the show will miss him.  He’s a man’s man, and a damn good actor.  Those were heartfelt scenes, primarily in lieu of the fact that Victor and Adam had a critical relationship before … never a good one, and often misinterpreted by the audience.  It was a wonderful storyline, and it was heartbreaking.”

As for the writers who continually have to juggle multiple storylines and so many characters, Eric expresed: “I have a deep, deep admiration for writers, to come up with this stuff every day, year end and year out, and for over 25 characters. It is extraordinary.  I don’t know how they do it.”

In addition, Eric has been teamed with Elizabeth Hendrickson as Chloe sought her revenge against Adam and teamed with Victor originally to do it.  Eric on working with her shared, “Elizabeth is wonderful, and so is Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki), and so is Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea), and Melissa Ordway (Abby) and I adore working with Amelia Heinle (Victoria.)  It’s a wonderful cast.”

Eric was very heartfelt when detailing his admiration for the audience who tunes-in every day to watch Y&R:  “11,00o shows is an extrordinary accomplishment in this town, and 27 years at number one.  I have been doing this show for 36 years,  There are moments when it really hits me and you think of our loyal audience out there.  I have been on Twitter for awhile and I enjoy that.  I have learned by interacting with the audience, whenever we make public appearances, to respect what I do more.  One tends to become cynical in Hollywood, and then when you realize what effect what you do have on the audience, then you become less cynical.  This show is entertaining millions of people all over the world, and that is humbling … it really is.  I’m a lucky bastard.”

I hated seeing Justin Hartley leave !!!!! Especially , the heartbreaking way it developed and ultimately ended. Love to see Chelsea and Nick unite. Can’t wait until Chloe gets what she deserves !!! Would love for Bella to be Kevin’s and he and Miranda raise her.

It would be nice if Kevin was the father. He would, I think make a wonderful father. I am still waiting for the Sully issue to come to a head. Since Chelsea has known for a while that Adam, and not Nick, is Sully’s father, when the whole truth comes out, I don’t think Nick will want to bother with Chelsea. But than again, he did promise to watch after Connor, so that could make things pretty interesting. Chole will get hers soon enough. And of course when the truth about Sully comes out, Sharon is going to completely crack.… Read more »

Hartley jumped to one of the hottest shows on PrimeTime. Good for him. As soaps flounder, he knew when to get the hell out!

B&B’s Kimberlin Brown and Tanner Novlan Talk on Sheila’s Motherly Love for Finn and the Next Move Against Steffy & the Forresters

The Bold and the Beautiful’s mother/son duo of Kimberlin Brown (Sheila Carter) and Tanner Novlan (Finn) chatted with Michael Fairman during a virtual interview for the Michael Fairman Channel; about the return of soap super-villain Sheila to the CBS daytime drama series, and its impact on newlyweds Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn, and their newborn son, Hayes.

When daytime fans learned that Brown was returning to B&B, they were very excited to see back on-screen as one of the greats, who’s character has caused so much trouble for the residents in both Genoa City 0n The Young and the Restless and in Los Angeles on The Bold and the Beautiful with her various crimes, deceptions, and plots over the years.

However, this time, viewers learned that Sheila is the biological mother of good doctor, Finn and her entrance into the story (at the wedding reception for Finn and Steffy) threw disruption into the lives of the Forresters and for her the son she never-got-to-know that she gave up at birth.

During this entertaining and candid conversation, Kimberlin and Tanner reveal many behind-the-scenes tidbits including: what went down during the  taping of the scenes where Finn learns Sheila is his mother as she steps out of the shadows, the confrontation at the wedding when the Forresters learned this shocking bit of intel, how Sheila plans to continue to manipulate and weave her way into her grandson and son’s life, and how she sees her vendetta with Steffy as an off-shoot of her vendetta with her grandmother, the late Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery).

In addition, Tanner weighs-in on Finn’s apparent ignorance of Paris’ (Diamond White) growing attraction to him, how that might trigger a Sheila/Paris partnership, or the possibility that Sheila does the unthinkable and somehow gets Steffy hooked back on opioids, or makes it looks like she has. There were many theories bantered about, and the actors share their speculative thoughts.
