Surprise! If you missed today’s episode of The Young and the Restless make sure to see it tonight on SOAPnet, or go to CBS.com for a real shocker!  In the episode, a lonely and drunk, Christine (Lauralee Bell) ends up somehow making out with a lonely and drunk Nick (Joshua Morrow).   On-Air On-Soaps spoke with Lauralee about the shocking little twist that spiced up her return visit to Genoa City even more!

Lauralee on what went through her mind when she read the scripts, that out of the blue, had her making out with Nick Newman AKA Joshua Morrow :  “Here is the funniest part of this thing.  I get the script.  I look, and I think they must have written “Christine” instead of “Sharon”.  So, I keep on looking back and going, “This can’t be”.  I told Joshua Morrow that.  I think I struggled with this script for six minutes before I accepted it.  I would go, “Look… they did it again.  They put my character name instead of “Sharon”’.  Well, Josh and I cracked up on that day.  And, I was saying to some other press members on my return, “There is one day that you will watch and you won’t believe that my character could do this.”  And after we shot those scenes, people were saying, “You guys were cute together!”  It was hugely character building, and it shows Christine is a little more human and lost at the same time.”

Lauralee on why Christine was kissing Nick other than the obvious …their judgment was impaired: “Nina caught Paul and Chris kissing, and then she said, “I gotta get out of here. I am leaving town.”  Then, she tried to get Michael Baldwin to come hang with her, and then Nick was upset about Phyllis and Sharon, and then we got drunk and started making out.  Then afterwards it was like, “We should pretend this never happened. Goodbye.”  And it was a full on kiss!  So Phyllis comes in and sees me from the back and thinks it’s Sharon kissing Nick.  I had specific notes to have my hair look like Sharon.   So of course, Mr. Doug Davidson (Paul) the whole day of this shoot was coming up to me going “Hi Sharon!” (Laughs)

Lauralee confirms she has a close relationship with Joshua Morrow anyway.: “We are extremely close and it was piece of cake. We kind of laughed a lot, as there was a lot of kissing. I did not even tell Scott, my husband, because I was like, “What is the point!”  (Laughs)

Um, for Phyllis to be ‘outraged’ or in any way ‘unhinged’ by seeing Nick kissing either Sharon or fake Sharon (Christine) is really a laugh. Considering that she was a homewrecking tramp to begin with, she never once thought of how Noah would feel seeing her stealing Nick from Sharon considering the pair were still grieving the loss of Cassie. All I can say is, “Suffer Phyllis, suffer greatly…” I hope she’s remembering what she did when she came in between Nick and Sharon. But likely not. Phyllis is too self-absorbed to ever know that what she does is destructive.… Read more »

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
