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.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talker A Go: Set For Launch 2020

CBS Television Distribution is getting more into the daytime talk show arena, with their first series of that kind in quite some time, after confirming that Drew Barrymore will indeed have a daytime talk show that now will premiere in the fall of 2020.

The new syndicated talk show has already had CBS Television Stations signing on as the first station group around the country to carry the show. New York and Los Angeles are on-board as two key heavyweight markets.

According to Deadline: the pickup for Barrymore’s talker came rather quickly just two months after she shot the pilot for it in the Big Apple.

The decision to move forward with Drew’s new show comes on the heels of a strong showing by NBC Universal’s new daytime talker, The Kelly Clarkson Show and the good start for Disney’s Tamron Hall Show.

As to where in the day-part the syndicated series hosted by Barrymore might fall in your daily viewing schedule is yet to be determined.

With solid ratings for Kelly Clarkson, Tamron Hall, and a new Barrymore talk series on the way; do you think it signifies more trouble ahead for your daytime soap operas in the long-run, or will everyone be able to have their slots and retain their audience and co-exist happily ever-after? Share your theories via the comment section below.
