ALS Ice Bucket Challenge: Melissa Claire Egan and Chrishell Stause Take Part; Douse ‘Y&R’s’ Newest Star Justin Hartley


It’s the craze that has swept the nation, social media and Hollywood over the last month as the world seeks to help fight Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord according to the ALS Association website. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Harpo’s Oprah Winfrey have already done it and so have a cruise ship load of daytime soap stars past and present, which now includes real-life best friends (Chelsea, “”) and (Jordan, “”), who were challenged by Egan’s mother, Mary. They weren’t alone! Also taking part was “Y&R’s” newest star, and Stause’s real-life boyfriend, (Adam Newman).

    Glad to see Eileen Davidson returning as Ashley. Too bad they can’t get Billy Miller back (Billy Abbott) as well. The writers are trying desperately to give “fun” lines to the new Billy actor – but he can’t pull it off – he is DULL and does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to show us the fun and sexy part of Billy that BM showed us with that dazzling smile and baby blue eyes. Find a new Billy. Even David Tom was better than this one.

    It will be MORE THAN INTERESTING to see how Justin Hartley plays Adam Newman. He better play him 100% the way Michael Muhney did – we don’t want a new Adam character or a new actor who can’t portray Adam Newman EXACTLY THE WAY MM did. Especially his smirk and mannerisms. Justin better be watching old tape of MM and be practicing being Adam in the mirror. We don’t want to be as let down with the new actor as we have been with the Billy actor!!
