Y&R’s Sharon Case, Mark Grossman & Jordi Vilasuso Talk Love and Betrayal in the Rey/Sharon/Adam Triangle

Photo: CBS and JPI

This week on The Young and the Restless, Sharon (Sharon Case) and Adam’s (Mark Grossman) kiss took centerstage and went viral when a photo of the passionate moment was seen by Sharon’s husband, Rey (Jordi Vilasuso), and fiancée Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), and many more citizens of Genoa City!

That moment looks to be a game-changer.  Now what will Rey do? Will he continue to try to salvage his marriage to Sharon? Will wheelchair bound Chelsea, hatch a plan to payback Adam and Sharon? Will Adam and Sharon meet up for some dangerous liaisons? There’s so much to this story left to play out.

In a new interview on The Michael Fairman Channel, Sharon Case, Mark Grossman and Jordi Vilasuso chatted candidly about their on-screen love triangle and more including: what happened when Mark auditioned for the key role of Adam, the character of Sharon’s battle with breast cancer, and who Sharon feels is Sharon Newman’s true love, Nick (Joshua Morrow) or Adam? Plus, the trio share their reactions to the news that their castmate, Sasha Calle (Lola) was tapped as the first Latina ‘Supergirl’ in the upcoming DC Universe film, The Flash.

During the conversation, Vilasuso said Rey was not blindsided by Adam and Sharon’s ongoing attraction: “Rey’s known for a long time, c’mon!  I had somebody on Twitter post all the videos on how long I’ve known about Adam and Sharon. (Laughs)  I had still had a beard on the show back then!  What’s he going to do?  I think this Adam sickness, this addiction, this pathology that he has, I think Rey hopes he can just arrest him and he will just go away for ever.  That’s playing in the back of my mind, like, ‘there’s no way Adam can keep up this behavior for much longer’.  Rey is crazy about Sharon. T here’s also some ego involved here, too of, ‘I got to be the guy here.  I can’t lose to this guy’.  But man, does Rey have a threshold for dealing with this stuff.  Remember, his (ex) wife had sex with his brother, and then she did it again, and now they are having a child together… and Rey was still able to move on.”

Case clarified from her previous 25th anniversary interview with Fairman, just who is Sharon Newman’s ultimate love, Nick (Joshua Morrow) or Adam?  Case had stated Adam.  The actress explained:  “When you think about what the character’s have been through, the history of The Young and the Restless, how stories are usually told – and what I mean by all that is Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Victor (Eric Braeden) have always been the “It” couple of the history of Y&R and they are very different.  They actually remind me more of Adam and Sharon then Nick and Sharon.  Nick turned out more to be the good son, while Adam was more in the image of his father, and it would be the obvious choice to guess that Nick and Sharon would be endgame.  I think soaps try to not go in the obvious way.  The two men that she has been married to, and were the biggest loves of her life, and both Victor’s kids, choosing between those that is why I said what I said, and why I think that’s true.  Sharon and Adam don’t have all of the pain, that Sharon and Nick have had from multiple cheatings and a loss of a child which is very hard for a couple to ever get past that.   I also think that Sharon and Nick are sort of together now anyways as co-parents and are such good friends.  They have a new relationship – they are not together in a romantic way – but their relationship is really great now and very full for what it is.”

Grossman shared that knowing Chelsea has a history of being con-artist, that she could potentially pull some stunts on Adam and Sharon to keep them apart:  “That’s always in the back of his mind.  You know, maybe she will start to con Adam and maybe he might pick up on it, maybe he doesn’t pick up on it, but obviously it’s a really sad situation that Adam is in.  There’s a lot going on in Adam’s life. It’s unfortunate that Connor (his son) is not there as he is off to boarding school, and then Adam wasn’t there because he went to Sharon’s wedding to peek his head in, and Chelsea had her stroke.  So there’s a lot of guilt there.  I think it’s really frustrating to him that he can’t have a conversation with this woman – who is his fiancée – and this is his fault and he caused all this.  But there’s always the underlying pull from Sharon, and after they kiss there are a lot of conflicted feelings there.”

#teamadam all the way.
Adam and Sharon belong together.
They have always supported and defendeded each other.
Their love is 100%.
It is time to reunite #Shadam

I agree with Sharon, Shadam is the next Niktor.

Hope Adam gets Sharon back. ❤️❤️❤️

Yes,yes Desylva! Rey is nice but not very exciting. Adam is so hot and that bad boy thing is irresistible on him. Plus, Chelsea has become more obnoxious in voice-over than in regular speech. Sharon’s risking everything here and since no one ever gives Adam a break, maybe Victor will support them. Unless devil boy Conner tries to sabotage Sharon again. We don’t need that!

Yes, both of these guys are really But I think Adam because you can see there’s a connection and there is a fire in their eyes. Definitely Adam. But I agree Rey is also a very handsome and sexy guy he needs a great sexy and intriguing lady for him. He needs that hot and heavy wild love with a gorgeous and mysterious character

For the sake of story, Adam, but in the real world she would be a fool not to choose Rey. I mean that’s one snack of a man.

Celia

This is soooo redundant. If it’s not the deadly triangle, it’s Gramps Jack getting it on with sneaky, snaky young women. I like neither Ray nor this Adam. Chronologically speaking, age and certain events are not in sync. I get it, it’s a soap. But Sharon looks her age—-and Mark has a baby face. As far as Ray? He is too stiff—-he brings the “cop” mentality home. I had always hoped Nick and Sharon would get back together. Now, Jack —–Please, writers, do not go down the uninteresting, pathetic old man/young woman path again. Do not make the “great”, undisputedly… Read more »

What really bothers me, Celia, is Jack’s poor judgment with Sally. There has to be someone else in town besides a proven schemer who’s also patronizing and self-serving. If he’s chasing memories of Phyllis…that’s even more insulting.

Celia
Guest
Celia

TPTB always “reinvent” older characters. Why? —-to keep them relevant. However, we are dealing with much older adults who should know better than to fall for scheming, much younger women—as I said, it only makes Jack look like a fool—-the kind of fool into whom I’d love to smack some sense ….or take a very hot shower. EWWWW!!
The writers did the same thing with Victor time and again.
Chasing memories of Phyllis? Good one. At least, her breath doesn’t smell like formula.
I don’t like any storyline on Y&R —-my favorite soap needs a little push in the right direction.

Celia Hey, how are you and family? Staying well I hope, despite all that white stuff you’ve been getting. I wonder if Jack in real life feels as foolish as he’s acting with his hand glued to that darn cradle. You would think they would have learned ssomething from the last fiasco. I think Jack is smitten with Sally because she reminds him of the younger Phyllis. I never felt he got over his “red” I don’t know how he can even look at her and Billy without wanting to throw up. Iam not saying they have to pair him… Read more »

There are so many defunct soaps that have actresses that could have been perfect with Peter Bergman. Kassie DePaiva, Kristen Alfonso,Kelly Menaghan just off the top of my head. When you think about the history of him and Jill how can he throw up at Billy & Phyllis? Jack forgave Billy the way John did. Honestly I’m only liking Lilliam, Jack & Billy, Amanda and Imani/Anaya I think Sally, the Abby baby story,Kyle shirking his son, Victor’s revenge, Vikki wanting Billy back is so been there done that blah. They completely underuse/misuse Lauren, Michael, Kevin and Chloe. They’re the people… Read more »

I like Adam but in this triangle I am Team Rey. I love Jordi V. and I think he and Sharon are a terrific pairing. I was disappointed and amazed at Chelsea’s reaction to Adam’s return considering they were so devoted to each other, so that totally changed the dynamic of their relationship for me [and that marriage she was in made no sense and was a non-starter] … I still hold out for them to be together. That being said, Team Rey all the way – I hope he won’t give up on the marriage too soon. Terrific interview… Read more »

Team Rey, but I’d rather see him with someone who is more committed and really IN love with him. They have never been really romantic, more like brother and sister. Sharon and Mark may be a couple in real life and they may want to continue it on screen but I sure don’t. They deserve each other!

Neither, its time for her and Nick. CANT STAND Adam, and Ray is sweet, but Nick is her forever. PHYLLIS needs to hook up with Adam, they are two of a kind schemers

Sharon needs to stay single for awhile. I can’t believe Adam and others have calls in Sharon to give advise to their love ones. And Sharon is as crazy as they come. And Nick is kind of goofy. And I’m sick of Abby, he’s never satisfied. And that storyline of looking for a serum donor is crazy too. .And another thing, Billy and Lily is a no no, she gave Cane a hard time but with Billy boy it’s a different story. Bring Cane back in the story please.

Violet Lemm
Guest

Mary Spence
Sorry, but I have to disagree. First of all Abby is a she and she’s not looking for serum but a sperm doner, which was before Devon stepped up. Iam not crazy about Billy and Lily, but I sure don’t want to see him back with Victoria, that man eater and it was Cane that gave Lily the hard time, remember the baby that we never saw?

Sharon knew she shouldn’t have Rey in the first place. Unfortunately Rey has had his world turn upside down again. He deserves better than this. If she had an ounce of loyalty in her, she would realize Rey has been there for her doing her crisis. She is always trying to justify Adam at anyone expense. What about her Daughter suffering from what Adam did to her as a baby. I know you have to forgive but who more important my daughter or Adam. Poor Chesla suffering too because of Adam chasing behind Sharon. I have watched this story from… Read more »

The end game will always be Nick and Sharon ! Adam should have stayed dead when they fired Muhney. Been done with it and Phyllis should have moved to New York never to be seen again. Waste of salaries

Violet Lemm

I think if Chelsea had a brain in her head she would dump Adam. She knows he’s got the hots for Sharon, so why keep beating a dead horse? She should take Conner and go live her life, find someone who really wants her. Wonder how he’d feel if she went chasing after Nick again. I’d love seeing Nick with anyone but crazy Phyllis.

Lynn

No offense to Grossman, but he is not “Adam” —something is missing since he became Adam; he almost seems to be too whiny and needy.
That being said, recast Adam and I’ll be on board team Shadam.
(While on the subject of recasting….. The actor who plays Billy doesn’t have what it takes to play the part).

Celia
Guest
Celia

Agreed and agreed!! No one will ever compare to Muhney’s Adam.
As far as Thompson?—-I said the same from the first day he showed up in GC as Billy—-likewise, no one can replace Billy Miller. YUM!!
Bring back Daniel gor Lily–
Also, bring back Kemo ( who must be approaching fifty) as a reminder of Jack’s real age. LOL.

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Ah Celia, every time I see Billy Miller mentioned, I practically swoon. He was — and IS — the only true spirit of Billy Abbott. I’ve never gotten the vaguest hint of playful, adorable flakiness from JT. He just comes across as humorless and, frankly, arrogant. Remember when Billy M. would squeeze Kevin’s cheek and call him “my little chipmunk.” Oh Billy, where are you when we need you?

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yeah, Soaphound—Billy seems like a sweet dream now—-he was the show!! I’m a good girl ( I think(–LOL—madly in love with my husband—but, Soaphound, my heart always skipped a beat whenever he appeared. Then, that idiotic Drew/Jason business on GH was the lowest of the low. Prince Burton wanted his job back and Billy was flushed down the toilet. Back to GC—-I never liked Chelsea; that’s a known fact—wishy washy personality, but the right age for Adam. Sharon is old enough to have given birth to Mark—-sorry guys—-it’s a soap, but the age factor ( that BIG of a difference)… Read more »

And you know what else, Celia…why was no woman ever pursuing Drew after he and Sam split? One of the sexiest guys on TV had no “lustees” besides you and I? (In a partnerless world, of course). Drew & Franco and Drew & Curtis had more sparks than Sam I Am anyway. I just thought it was odd.

Satan
Guest

Well, to be fair, Drew was understandably preoccupied with his son dying of brain cancer. And after that, he got thrown into the middle of this whole thing with the Shiloh cult, Whiny Heiny and how that all goes back to when he & Jason got kidnapped for some mad scientist’s experiment…. which eventually got him killed (or so we were led to believe. He’s not in Hell… that much I can tell you.) That doesn’t leave a lot of room for a “social life” unfortunately. Might have been logical if he & Kim had re-connected over their mutual grief… Read more »

Sorry I took my time answering you, Soaphound—–I didn’t mean to be rude. School is in full session now ( in person classes), so, life picked up the pace—-busy!! It WAS odd that “Drew” was left stagnating, as far as women are concerned—-however, after reading Satan’s take on it, he makes a lot of sense. I only wish and hope Billy will resurrect and return to PC. Franco is dead—-sad!! I realize many were/are not fans, but I liked the actor. Why isn’t Peter dead? What is in store for him?I cringe each time the camera’s “eye” is fixed on… Read more »

Billy A can’t be the goofy Billy that Miller played. His daughter was hit by a car and died and that changed him forever. JT as Billy is still haunted by the loss of Delia and while he had found a way to find happiness Delia’s death is always with him. If he behaved as the goof ball he’d be disrespecting Delia and her place on the show. Well done JT!

You said that Rey is a really good guy and that’s part of the problem. He’s also a man, not a doormat nor another word I won’t use here. He’s never going to change Sharon’s feelings from Adam to himself, and he’s letting her make a fool out if him. I think he should take what little pride he’s got left, throw it in a suitcase with his clothes and tell her adious!

Soaphound
Guest

Isn’t it odd, Violet, that Rey and sister Lola are in the same boat? Fighting ghosts of their partners’ past loves that aren’t past at all. Lola wasn’t a doormat. Rey shouldn’t be one either. Move on!

So right Soaphound. Rey’s just too damn nice and he’s living in la la land if he thinks there will be some miracle changing how she feels about Adam as compared to how she feels about HIM.

Interviews

B&B’s Kimberlin Brown and Tanner Novlan Talk on Sheila’s Motherly Love for Finn and the Next Move Against Steffy & the Forresters

The Bold and the Beautiful’s mother/son duo of Kimberlin Brown (Sheila Carter) and Tanner Novlan (Finn) chatted with Michael Fairman during a virtual interview for the Michael Fairman Channel; about the return of soap super-villain Sheila to the CBS daytime drama series, and its impact on newlyweds Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn, and their newborn son, Hayes.

When daytime fans learned that Brown was returning to B&B, they were very excited to see back on-screen as one of the greats, who’s character has caused so much trouble for the residents in both Genoa City 0n The Young and the Restless and in Los Angeles on The Bold and the Beautiful with her various crimes, deceptions, and plots over the years.

However, this time, viewers learned that Sheila is the biological mother of good doctor, Finn and her entrance into the story (at the wedding reception for Finn and Steffy) threw disruption into the lives of the Forresters and for her the son she never-got-to-know that she gave up at birth.

During this entertaining and candid conversation, Kimberlin and Tanner reveal many behind-the-scenes tidbits including: what went down during the  taping of the scenes where Finn learns Sheila is his mother as she steps out of the shadows, the confrontation at the wedding when the Forresters learned this shocking bit of intel, how Sheila plans to continue to manipulate and weave her way into her grandson and son’s life, and how she sees her vendetta with Steffy as an off-shoot of her vendetta with her grandmother, the late Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery).

Photo: JPI

In addition, Tanner weighs-in on Finn’s apparent ignorance of Paris’ (Diamond White) growing attraction to him, how that might trigger a Sheila/Paris partnership, or the possibility that Sheila does the unthinkable and somehow gets Steffy hooked back on opioids, or makes it looks like she has. There were many theories bantered about, and the actors share their speculative thoughts.
