Y&R's Redaric Williams Shows Us His Six-Pack & Talks About Tyler & Lily and Shemar Moore!

Courtesy/RollingOut

One of the hottest newcomers on the soaps this past year has been Redaric Williams of The Young and the Restless who plays Tyler on the CBS Soap.  This week, Redaric is featured on the cover of Rolling Out Magazine on newsstands now with a feature and video of his cover photo shoot complete with his stellar six-pack abs and looks!

However the article on Redaric is something to look too.  The Y&R stars talks about landing his role on the number one soap opera,  comparisons made to former Y&R star and Daytime Emmy winner, Shemar Moore that has some fans claiming Williams is a Malcolm wannabe,  and Tyler’s relationship with Lily Winters, played by Christel Khalil.  Here are a few excerpts below!

Redaric on the Tyler/Lily situation since the characters work so closely in the workplace, but Lily is married to Cane (Daniel Goddard) and the dynamics of that: “You talk about dealing with a co-worker, which is very common; that’s a very, very real scenario [with] married couples or even people who are in extended relationships that are very committed to one another, and they have a co-worker who maybe is getting a little too close for comfort. It’s a very realistic depiction of a dangerous life situation and I think that’s why it makes for good viewing. People kind of tune in because they want to see what’s going to happen because I think [we] can kind of learn from situations that we see on the soaps.”

Redaric on the comparisons to Shemar Moore, who made such a name for himself as Malcolm Winters on Y&R:  “If you compare me to Shemar, I am honored.  He’s a great guy. He’s doing his thing — stamped, sealed and solidified — and to be able to be mentioned in the same sentence is an honor.”

Watch below some crazy amazing abs from Redaric in his Rolling Out cover shoot video. Then, let us know, do you want Tyler to get closer to Lily?  Do you think there is any comparison between Shemar and Redaric? Are you enjoying Redaric on Y&R? Weigh-in!

It would appear from these comments re Lily Ashby RW has been drinking a six pack rather than showing one! This SL, solely a vehicle to introduce him to Y&R and ACTING, is a major fail, except to Angie Mc; most viewers cringe at the thought of Lily with her used-to-be-stalker before Josh erroneously assumed a slant of his pen could erase what we had viewed previously. Lily, loving Cane as she does, would not give NotShemar a second glance (most women wouldn’t) and Angie Mc did RW a disservice when she compared him to Shemar Moore, who is a… Read more »

Your rant is hilarious because when Shemar first started he was told to get acting/elocution lessons and come back in a decade or so by every critic. They said he was beautiful to look at but not an actor.

Redaric Williams doesn’t write the show or his character; he’s an actor. I happen to think Tyler is written badly but I like Redaric same thing with Carmine.

What needs to change is the writers. They are ruining the show very quickly. It’s uneven and some storylines make zero sense.

Lady L, David is correct.Onky one person needs lessons here and that’s you.Add lessons in tact ,correctness and thoughtfulness to the mix as well. ”
“Dictionary.com : elocution[ el-uh-kyoo-shuhn ]
noun
1. a person’s manner of speaking or reading aloud in public: The actor’s elocution is faultless.
2. the study and practice of oral delivery, including the control of both voice and gesture.”

Kim H, Lady L was not referring to me she was referring to Enuf!TwitTwatWriters. I’m not going to get into a “cyberfight” with a stranger but just a suggestion you may want to proofread prior to posting. Again just a suggestion. But Lady L, I don’t get the reference to “Chocolate Chippendales?” I never read that Redaric was involved in that. Seems borderline racist to mention that no? Plain and simple the author of the first blog is confusing Redaric with Tyler attacking an actor for the actions of a character. Telling him to take elocution lessons is pretty awful… Read more »

I don’t understand the point of the Lily/Cane fanatics to come in here and comment on a page dedicated to Redaric Williams aka Tyler Michaelson. Lily and Cane aren’t even divorcing so why are you all pressured? I absolutely love Tyler on the show. He’s really a breath of fresh air and definitely the best addition ever. I think he and Lily are perfect for each other. Tyler brings out the best in Lily and it is refreshing to see them. Lily and Cane bore me beyond words, it’s not even funny anymore. I saw many people outside the fandom… Read more »

Your second paragraph proved my point. Shemar WAS bashed just like how Redaric is being. But people gotta stop being cyberbullies. If we are teaching kids not to do it, then we should learn the same lessons as adults. I just don’t think we are. ITS A SOAP OPERA! haha People are confusing reel life with real life.

great abs!!
I know some guys with great abs and they spend a majority of their lives working out..
to get abs as Redaric’s can consume a life..
Also when he gets older and the workouts stop the once rock abs look terrible when the muscles deflate and droop ..

Anyways, Redaric is looking way to awesome!! 😉

Ieanna,IMO the character is boring at the moment…i need him to stir up some trouble for Lily…thats all. Both characters need a bit of excitement going…the actor himself is fine….but his character needs just a little more drama…thats not being negative…as for being boring wtf was that stupid remark for? lmoao…you must be boring and negative person to waste your time here telling me that! I can be exciting and i can be boring…just depends more on the other person im with or in messages with at the moment…lmfao!!!

So not only is Redaric a great actor but he’s also gorgeous AND fit? Sorry though, I do NOT want him and Lily together. She needs to stop acting like she doesn’t have feelings for Tyler and admit it to herself. Then she needs to realize what an amazing husband she has. Go Cane!!

Loving RW on YR. He’s great with Lily. He makes her go from boring to a more interesting. I’d rather see him with someone even better: Abby. Those two have tons of chemistry also. One of the best new additions to the cast in a long time. Now I’m gonna watch that video a few more times lol

many fantastic characters have grown into core roles in the Y&R over the decades that began as ‘accessory’ roles to facilitate change in a storyline/main character. there are so many ways that Tyler can become integral in Genoa City. The role as a temptation for Lily to add drama to Mr&Mrs HappilyEverAshby (boring) grew because Mr Williams is someone you cant take your eyes off when he is onscreen, and , as well, he made an absurd situation believable as that character so i’m SUPER excited about what else he might possibly be besides not-an-adulter-after-all 😉 #cheers #LoveMyMelodrama

Red has been a great addition on Y&R! Yes he is easy on the eyes but Tyler is also talented in marketing! Business is the backbone to Y&R so Tyler will be around! I am excited to see what the writers will do with Tyler! There is a lot more to discover and I am looking forward to it! Thanks Red for responding to my tweets! You are very humble! I am a fan!

Hello, I immediately fell in love with Tyler’s character! He is kinda a “bad boy” which is a great For many! I do want to see Tyler and Lily get closer! It’s awesome! I actually think Tyler and Lily make a “hot” couple! Red, don’t worry about the haters because it is obvious those folks don’t recognize talent when they see it and obviously need glasses as well. As far as comparing you to Shamar, you both are 2 different people, so no comparison shouldn’t even be in play. Keep doing your thang. I love your character and I hope… Read more »

I love Redaric Williams and the character of Tyler. He was great to come in and shake things up. Lily and Cane are so boring! As for the Shemar Moore comparisons, it makes complete sense. They are both gorgeous and dripping with swag. The characters of Malcome and Tyle are very similar as well, artistic, athletic, and smooth. He is hot in his own right though and deserves the attention and compliments, don’t hate him because he’s beautiful lol. I love how much respect he showed to Shemar Moore when they asked him about the comparison….I just love this guy.

Redaric Williams is a class act. Not only is he talented, he’s super intelligent. I look forward to watching his interviews and of course, watching him on the Young & The Restless. The comparisons need to stop. Redaric has his own path. Excited for all that is to come for this young man. Hopefully, he ignores the random baseless , hateful comments. Some folks really need to find a hobby other than hating.
If you read this Red, LOVING YOU on Y&R!!!

I think Redaric is a fantastic actor! I enjoy his scenes both with and without Lily. As he said above, we watch to see what will happen. I understand the comparison to Shermar, because Redaric is a young, talented and very handsome black actor starting out on Y&R. It makes sense. I’m glad Redaric is a part of the Y&R cast and I hope to see more of him!

Anyone who says different is just hating and jealous because he Has it all! I hope Y&R execs see this & give him MORE SCENES cause we want MORE RW! WE WANT MORE RW!!! 😉 He definitely spiced up what I felt was a boring couple (Cain & lily) relationship, and he also makes Noah’s scenes more interesting and fun!!!

Redaric/Tyler is a great addition to Y&R, and has become one of my favorite characters on the show. I enjoy watching the relationship between him and sister Leslie. His bromance with Noah was unexpected, but has now turned into a great friendship. I personally am most excited to see what will happen between Lily and Tyler. I like what I’ve seen so far, and can’t wait to see more.

Redaric is a wonderful addition to the Y&R cast whether or not his character actually links up with Lily. He is multi-talented and genuinely humble. Moreover, he makes time to stay connected to his fans via Twitter, etc. The soap world is just the “tip of the iceberg” for him. Go get ’em, Red!!! 😉

Redaric is one of my favorite new cast members. I love how natural he is.He brings a new energy to the show. I understand the comparisons to Shemar.

As the saying goes “Let your haters be your motivators” …. I think Redaric is bringing his skills to the table. It’s a shame everything turns into body image issues vs skill sets. If he was hired as a Corporate exec it would still be about his look vs his skills. Many have grown up on this show mastering their characters. Look at the great Eric Braeden who can hold his own in physique and skill in his craft. His look didn’t dictate his talents. Some just come with the whole pkg. Redaric is no different coming in.

Redaric is a great actor but the s/l he is in lacking. I thought of Shemar Moore when I saw Red but only cause of his great looks, body and classiness. Red is his own person, you can tell. Good luck xx

Redaric has been such a great addition to Y&R. He’s also very easy on the eyes:) He’s been one of the only reasons I’ve been watching. Tyler and Lily have amazing chemistry on screen and she has become more watchable these only because of him. Please Tyler free Lily from her boring husband! Redaric is definitely coming into his own and is doing a wonderful job! As long as he’s on Y&R I will continue to watch:)

One more thing… I really hope the writers put Lily and Tyler together! Sick and tired of Lily and Cane, it’s time to shake up things. It’s a soap after all and all the other couples on the show broke up. So why not Lily and Cane? Besides Lily and Tyler have chemistry, it’s undeniable. And both Lily and Cane need to explore other things. The show will survive if Lily and Cane separate lol… Just saying.

Redaric is a younger version of the more mature Shemar Moore. He just needs the chance to learn and grow in acting as Shemar and every other actor did. It’s just called opportunity.

So he has a nice body, but I need more than that on a TV show. His character and storyline are so boring. He is passable as an actor. I’m not jumping up and down handing him an Emmy. I have never warmed to him or his character. I would like him to go and have Y&R focus on their veterans.

Sad how ‘happy and committed’ is boring to some. Love Cane & Lily and what they have brought to daytime – an example that not all characters, especially women, have to bedhop to be interesting. ((Hard to root for a couple who change partners like their clothes.) Not against couples breaking up but at least let the 3rd party be interesting.

Wish this young man success and better writing. S/L to date has not done him any favors. Hope theres more than this sulky, immature, arrogant portrayal in his future.

This man without a doubt is one sexy man. It’s such a fresh look for Y&R. I’m tired of nick and Neil… Well at least lookin at them All the time. Billy is gettin old. Noah still seems like a lil boy.

Great article. Redaric Williams seems like a really cool, positive, down to earth and hard working guy. He has good looks, charisma, and acting talent. I like Tyler as a character. He is a breath of fresh air on Y&R. He is the best newcomer that Y&R has snagged in years in my opinion. I think Tyler has lots of promise. He has chemistry with all of his scene partners and fits in very well. The writers at Y&R need to hurry up and put Tyler with Lily in a hot romance because they have great chemistry (and the build… Read more »

Tyler is boring. Redaric is just a passable actor. He may improve, who knows. Since comparisons are being made I don’t think Shemar Moore was that accomplished when he started.

I have just seen nothing so far that has drawn me into either Tyler, Leslie or their story line(s). I have thought forever that Lily & Cane were also boring and tossing Tyler into their orbit hasn’t done much. I don’t see any real chemistry between RW & CK.

The thing that I cannot comprehend, after almost a year, is how BORING this show is!! And how slow it moves!! People love or hate Jill Phelps, but rarely are her helmed shows boring. When she took over Y and R, people were expecting a radical shift in stories, explosions, serial killers, pl ot gimmicks, etc. There has been NONE of that! The one time where there should have been an explosion and some casualties, with the bomb at the Newman ranch, the bomb was diffused quickly in an anti-climactic way. Personally, I would LOVE a patented Phelps sweeps stunt… Read more »

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

Photo: JPII

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
