The mutli-talented Jessica Collins (Avery) of The Young and the Restless was a guest today on the Hallmark Channel’s morning series, Home & Family with hosts Christina Ferrare and Mark Steines.

During the first part of her segment, Jessica revealed that she is coming up in her third anniversary playing Avery on the number one soap, commented on a clip of an intimate on-screen moment between Avery and Dylan (Steve Burton), and admitted she likes working with Steve Burton very much.  However, there have been times in her career when she was not comfortable playing opposite a few of her leading men.

Later during the cooking segment, Jessica whips up her recipe for a tasty Blueberry Cobbler, and while doing so reveals a strange fan encounter that ensued that involved her and her mother.  Apparently, the fan talked to Jessica’s mom as if Jessica was really Avery!  Collins also chatted on her infamous love scene ritual where she always shake hands with her scene partner when they finish their hot steamy love scenes.

Watch the two segments after the jump featuring Jessica on Home & Family! Then, let us know what you thought of Jessica’s fan story?  If you like Avery and Dylan together? And more importantly if you want to taste Jessica’s recipe for a Blueberry Cobbler?

I cannot believe its been three years already! Soap fans kind of brush off new characters because they enjoy seeing the legends day in and day out but here is a point where something new is something good. Avery is an interesting character who can act! Plus, like Steve Burton, they found a way for her to be integrated with the other fine characters of Genoa City.

Three years? Yikes, it seems longer. I wish Avery and Dylan would leave. The cooking show on Y&R has been so boring and stupid. If this is the best they can write for them, they totally need to go. Take Abby and Tyler with them when they go, along with Neil and Hilary.

The cooking show is exciting…a future spoiler reveals that on a Friday cliffhanger Avery makes toast…then we have to wait all weekend to see on Mondays episode if she butters the toast or uses jam…my prediction is that she uses neither…she and Dullan go on a mystery journey to discover what butter and jam is…and some people think Y&R isnt good anymore…lol

Honey the “cooking show” segment of this soap is not exciting. As exciting as watching an hour of C-SPAN.

Mama, he was being sarcastic.

I love Avery, I want her to cook more. Avery please cook some chili, tacos, spaghetti and Lasagne. LOL. Jessica Collins is a very beautiful woman, and a wonderful actress. I also used to watch her on LOVING, she played Dinah lee.

Ha! Jim, and stayed tuned for when Avery boils water. Instead of cliff hangers, we will now have souffle fallings.

If MAB hadn’t been canned I bet anything Avery would have been a footnote on this show. She was only created to make trouble for Phyllis, not be a leading character– and if MAB had stayed, Avery would have been history after her main purpose was done. But for some reason JFP likes this character — oh that’s right– the reason is it was through Avery she had a means to bring on Dylan (Steve Burton) and make these two the new “stars” of the show. But that is all water under the bridge– just wish Avery got back some of her original nastiness, under JFP team she has become so sweet, I’m getting cavities just watching her.

She seems like a nice lady, but Avery is a horror and it’s getting worse. I don’t care about her Betty Crocker wanna be life. Send her and DULLAN out of town. Y&R is now unwatchable with this trash. Stop the madness.

I like the characters of Avery and Dillon. Both are good actors, however, they just need better writers on this show. Every story line is a total bore.

Avery and Dillon are not hot nor sexy and chem free..
ALL the couples on Y&R are lackluster I FF all of them.. lol
I can watch Y&R in 10/15 minutes haaa!
but- I watch/addicted 🙁

The opening of Y&R is all newbies so to say, the new young actors are now the coveted stars, and they can’t act , what is up with that?

I know that Jessica Collins went to school to become a chef I just think bringing this in for a storyline is a snooze. Did we not have an internet stalking storyline with Neil by Hilary just last year? Next will have a storyline with Dylan selling protein juice.

Wow Jessica Collins is 43 years old, very attractive lady. Time flies 3 years on the young and the restless. Hard to believe. I cannot wait, until Gina Tagnoni comes to the young and the restless as the new Phyllis. Gina will kick ass, as Phyllis.

I like her–she seems every bit as kind as her character. However, she is duller than dishwater lately. The only way to make the cooking segment interesting is to get Gordon Ramsey to make a few cameos while judging Avery’s cooking.
Now, I do not know whose bright idea it was to pair her up with Burton, but those two are like a Wonder Bread sandwich with margarine in the middle. They are about as dull as Sabrina and Patrick from GH and that is saying a lot. The one time I found Avery interesting is when she interacted with Michael Muhney’s Adam. It wasn’t because I fancied some romance transpiring between the two, it was because she really saw the good in him when no one else could and he valued her friendship–not because he would get anything in return for it, he just valued her. That was when Avery was interesting to me.

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
