Yesterday, in a very lively and revealing CBS Connect video chat with two of the most popular stars of The Young and the Restless, fans were able to participate and ask questions to the duo in live time!  The duo of Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Jess Walton (Jill) scrolled through questions and picked many of them and gave some very forthright answers!

We learned some very interesting tidbits! 1) John Conboy former EP of Y&R wanted Nikki to be a mud-wrestler at first.  It was nixed by the network, when they said Nikki can be a stripper but not a mud wrestler! 2)  Jess really feels a very deep connection with Daniel Goddard (Cane) almost like her real-life son, and loved the energy Bryton James (Devon) delivered to her during Katherine’s memorial when Jill addressed the attendees with her speech. 3) Doug Davidson (Paul) used to have a problem with memorizing his lines!

And the above is just a sample of what these two fascinating women had to say! Watch the chat after the jump with the banter and repartee between Mel and Jess!  Let us know what your favorite moment from the chat was!

I hate the way Nikki walks around judging poor Sharon. Victor also. I hope Sharon is happy with Nick or Adam and stick it to Niiki and Victor. I hope Jill and Jack get victor for everything he has

excellent post! i’m so over… Victor… and if the writers continue to write Nikki… their way… it’s a moot point… to even bother saving… victor and nikki…. what for? Sharon doesn’t deserve their altruistic behavior…. Sharon… PLEASE… for the love of God, (writers’) save Sharon… right the wrong – for Y&R to survive… reconciling Sharon and Adam…is the only way. I too hope… Jill and Jack… “MIA” Victor… he’s just done… enuf: to bore the audience… and at this point… who cares it’s rather sad… to see two original “women” who persevered.. throughout the production teams… to wait for… the… Read more »

Very’ fun… like both of these actresses! It’s always fun to see what they are like and how they think. Have to say Jess was better at quickly thinking of examples and answers. Melody was more thoughtful and reserved. They were good together for this segment.

Melody was more thoughtful and reserved.

which speaks volumes… i often think… MTS… is a YES person… ultimately… her vague answers… “well… the chemistry is there”

and for her to always come up with one reason or another… as to why her character Nikki… saddlebags herself; joined at the hip Victor… god! how dull and boring…

Nikki… you and Jill… have the fight… fiesty… no holds barred… powerful…

what a shame… it’s always power struggle for the newman/abbott empires.

same old same old

AWESOME INTERVIEW LADIES!!!!!

Love them both, and it’s interesting to see a lot of them in their on screen characters. I HOPE that Jess hinting about an upcoming story means we’ll see her more. I just read elsewhere that Tristan R. is coming back, so that may be what she’s referring to. I thought they both looked great and seem to be really down to earth ladies, who actually enjoy one another.

So much history there! 34 and 28 years each on the show!!!

Hi – over the past months I have noticed that Jess has lost an incrediable amount of weight. I was wondering if you would share that piece of information. I am Jess’ age exactly and would like to know her secret.l

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.
