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

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

Irene Cara, Best-Known For Smash Hits ‘Fame’ and ‘Flashdance… What A Feeling’, Dead at 63

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”
