“The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman) may be busy creating drama in Genoa City and preparing for her upcoming real life nuptials to fiancé Matt Katrosar, but she’s still managing to squeeze in time to meet fans and simultaneously save sick animals!

The actress has partnered with Charitybuzz for an auction that includes lunch in Los Angeles or a Skype session with the highest bidder. And if that isn’t fabulous enough, the proceeds from the auction will benefit The Riedel & Cody Fund, which is an organization supported by Egan that gives money to families who cannot afford treatment for their pets afflicted with cancer.

To take part in the auction, which goes through Wednesday, July 9, visit the CharityBuzz website. And for more about Egan’s support of The Riedel & Cody Fund, check out our Details interview with the star here!

Opinions regarding the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Award show have been mixed, but opinions regarding the four women that the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences hired to host the red carpet pre-show remain the same across the board: The foursome are being criticized as being amateurish and downright offensive.

After a casting call issued by NATAS called for “millennials between the ages of 18-35, all ethnicities, who have a strong entertainment news background and/or very strong social media following (300,000 followers minimum),” the daytime community was met with Vine star Brittany Furlan, style vlogger Lauren Elizabeth, beauty vlogger Jessica Harlow, and style and beauty vlogger Meghan Rosette on the Emmy red carpet.

Tongues were left wagging after “General Hospital” star Kimberly McCullough (ex-Robin Scorpio) tweeted out a photo of a script on Sunday night along with the tease: “A day in the life of a soap actor. Say ‘soap-y’ I dare you.” Was it a “GH” script? Did the tweet mean she was returning to Port Charles?

Apparently, the answer is a resounding yes! Not only is executive producer Frank Valentini saying the actress will be heading back to the show, a rep for “GH” confirms to Soap Opera Network that McCullough in fact will be back this summer!

Following last week’s revelation to her husband, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), that Dylan (Steve Burton) is actually Paul’s (Doug Davidson) son and not Ian Ward’s (Ray Wise), Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is nearly at a loss for words as she tells Paul that he’s Dylan’s father just as Dylan walks into the room. Meanwhile, Hillary (Mishael Morgan) is dabbling in a father/son triangle and potential “Who’s The Daddy?” territory with her upcoming nuptials to Neil (Kristoff St. John). Will Devon (Bryton James) be able to stop the wedding?

Finally, a new Billy hits the screen beginning Tuesday, June 24 when Burgess Jenkins takes over the role previously portrayed by David Tom and Billy Miller. Of course, he’s already shirtless bein that it’s summer time. It was only a matter of time…

Kathy Griffin, who is hosting this year’s kudocast, opened the show telling everyone to “work bitch” with music set to Britney Spears’ song of the same now, proving cursing is okay for an online telecast not needing commercials. She added an “F” bomb soon after that. Kathy also talked about how crappy last year’s awards was.

10 minutes into the show, no award has been handed out, but with no commercials, Kathy’s stand up stick is okay…for now. Kathy sped things up and introduced Billy Bush of “Access Hollywood,” who presented the first award of the night – Outstanding Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series.

Of the nominees for Outstanding Supporting Actor, Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) to took home his first Daytime Emmy Award in his first nomination. He beat out “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer), “General Hospital’s” Bradford Anderson (ex-Damian Spinelli) and Dominic Zamprogna (Dante Falconeri) and “The Young and the Restless’” Steve Burton (Dylan McAvoy).

Bush then presented Outstanding Supporting Actress to Amelia Heinle for her portrayal of Victoria Newman from CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” This is Heinle’s first nomination and first win after more than 20 years working in daytime television. An emotional Amelia beat out “Y&R” co-stars Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe Fisher), Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman), “GH’s” Kelly Sullivan and Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine). Heinle thanked former “Y&R” co-star Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott), who is nominated tonight for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama series, in particular.

Casey Moss and Kate Mansi of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” presented Outstanding Legal/Courtroom Program,but before getting things started they congratulated their co-star Eric Martsolf. The award went to “The People’s Court.” It beat out “Divorce Court,” “Judge Judy” and “Justice For All With Christina Perez.”

Outstanding Talk Show Host(s) was a tie between Dr. Mehmet Oz of “The Dr. Oz Show” and Katie Couric of “The Katie Couric Show.” Neither winner was here. The award was presented by Mario Lopez (host of “Extra”).

“Y&R’s” Sharon Case and Camryn Grimes presented Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team went to their very show, “The Young and the Restless.” The soap beat out “B&B” and “DAYS.”

Emmy nominees from “B&B” Scott Clifton and Kim Matula (Hope Logan) presented Outstanding Drama Series Directing Team with co-star Darin Brooks (Wyatt Fuller). “One Life to Live” picked up the award, to add to its tally from the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Friday night. Jill Mitwell picked up the award. The soap beat out “B&B” and “Y&R.”
