The Young and the Restless just celebrated another milestone in their storied daytime history with the airing of its 12,000th episode last week.  In story, the epicenter of the on-screen celebration revolved around Chance’s wedding to Abby (Melissa Ordway).

In a twist of fate and tape schedules, Donny Boaz (Chance) contracted Covid-19 and so none other than Melissa Ordway’s real-life husband, Justin Gaston stepped in at the last minute and played the role of Chance, making the wedding all the more sweeter, since the audience at-home knows they are a couple off-screen.

Enter, Tricia Cast!  This enduring Daytime Emmy-winning fan favorite made a return to the series in her role of Nina Webster, Chance’s mom who came back to Genoa City in time for the nuptials.  While in town, she got to catch-up with Christine (Lauralee Bell) and many others, plus her one-time nemesis, Jill, played by Daytime Emmy-winner, and enduring Y&R star, Jess Walton (Jill).

To mark the 12,000 episode, and getting to work with each other for the first time in several years, Jess and Tricia chatted with Michael Fairman for this exclusive conversation for the Michael Fairman Channel.

During the interview, Jess and Tricia reminisce about their past storylines together including: the plots by Jill and Katherine (the late Jeanne Cooper) to get Nina out of Genoa City!  In addition, they share their remembrances on working with the late Kristoff St. John (Neil) and Darlene Conley (Ex-Rose DeVille, Y&R).  Tricia also weigh-in on what she thought of the story twist, which had Phillip (Thom Bierdz) revealed to be gay.

With so much history, Jess and Tricia note that they would love the chance to get to work together more in the future.  So, let’s hope that may be on the horizon. After all, Nina has another son out there, Ronan (last played by Jeff Branson), who could potentially return to GC some day.

For now, check out the candid conversation with Jess and Tricia below.

Who knows if Jill has “softened”? Jill appears so rarely these days that we have NO idea what she is liked. I really like Jess Walton and appreciate her years of loyalty to the show. She certainly deserves to work less if that is what she wants. That being said, the infrequent appearances (most times, complete absence) of Walton from the show is doing the character of Jill no favors. Jill is the ONLY remaining original character on the show. She should be front and center of the entire show with plots built around her. Again, Walton is entitled to… Read more »

I have always loved Trisha Cast. To me, she is like Beth Maitland, they both bring a sense of true realism to their respective roles….understated but genuine.

What about a Nina/Jack pairing? Would keep Trisha on the show and give Jack a mature and balanced love interest.

Sorry, but Jack is waiting for Hope from DOOL to come and sweep him off his feet.

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.
