The Young and the Restless star Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren) was a special guest on Wednesday’s episode of the morning show Home and Family.  The Hallmark Channel talker which features Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare as co-hosts took Tracey on a look back at the early days of her role as Lauren Fenmore, and her feud with Traci Abbott played by Beth Maitland.

As viewers know, Lauren was quite the bitch and bad girl back in the 80’s and the 90’s.  So, during the beginning of Bregman’s segment a catfight scene between Lauren and Traci was shown. Bregman revealed it was difficult to have to make fun of the character of Traci’s weight, because off-screen Maitland was dealing with the pressures of that as well.

In addition, Mark and Cristina also got some interesting Intel on how Tracey’s next on-screen rivalry with the character of Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) kind of impeded her own life during the birth of her real-life son, Austin

Finally, Tracey discussed her current Y&R storyline where Lauren’s husband Michael (Christian LeBlanc) is battling prostate cancer and the ramifications it has had on their marriage.   Michael has just asked Lauren for a divorce.

Watch Tracey on Home and Family after the jump! Then let us know; what has been your favorite Lauren Fenmore Baldwin storyline through the years … and do you hope Michael and Lauren can stay together and work through this difficult time in their relationship?

Really enjoyed the years of stories about Danny, Lauren, Traci, Paul and Cricket. Loved Y&R in the 1980s! Tracey Bregman is a daytime drama delight!

I’ve always liked Bregman and Lauren. However, I’ve been very disappointed in the writing for the character for the past decade. The ever-changing writing regimes don’t seem to know what to do with Lauren other than write her as a devoted wife or quivering in fear at the mention of “Sheila.” A devoted wife is a great thing in the real world. However, marital bliss can quickly make a soap character BORING. Sadly, that is what Lauren has been stuck with for a decade. I’d love to see some of the “bitch” that Lauren frequently exhibited in her younger years… Read more »

I love Tracey B. as well. She can play so many roles. In this latest there are times I want to tell her to just leave him be and walk away until he comes to his senses but although he’s ill there are times I would just like to hit him on the side of the head.

She looks great! I hope to look that good, male version of course, when I reach her age! I hope they expand her family since it appears Christian could be leaving? What about a new love for Lauren? Bring back her son Scotty and let him and Fen duke it out! Expand Fenmores minus Jill.

Christian isn’t leaving. I love Tracey Bregman but I have no desire to see her play a bitch again or some cougar. Lauren should be edgy but she has matured and that is a good thing. She and Christian work so well together. They are delivering emotional performances but because Pratt and JFP do not like the story, the writing and screentime isn’t there. They aren’t boring characters but too often Y&R becomes all about the current favorites and terrific actors like Tracey and Christian are treated like filler. It’s too bad Chuck Pratt can’t see past his own biases… Read more »

I agree…what’s the point of doing a cancer story (or any illness) if you’re not going to make it an uplifting one? Showing how a family is torn apart because someone is ill, is depressing and especially for a viewer who may be going through the same thing.
I’m not a big fan of contrived, sudden illnesses…especially with children…but if it can at least be informative with a positive outcome, I can tolerate it.

I think the character of Lauren is truly an untapped resource for this show. Sure, her scenes with Michael are amazing but her interactions with “Sis” Jill are boring. Lauren is super wealthy and a business woman but we see her working the counter in a boutique when she runs a company that has a string of high end “BARNEY’S” like department stores. Give this character more power than just wishing her husband would forget a limp “tool” does not end a marriage. I am saddened that the show killed off Tracey’s kid, Colleen. It would have been nice to… Read more »
