Forget about the sun, BBQ flames and bikini-clad bodies: The one thing that will be heating up the most this summer is CBS’ “The Young and the Restless.” From shocking secrets, babydaddy drama, rip-roaring returns and more, the CBS sudser is pulling out all of the stops in the weeks to come — and Soap Opera Network spoke with several cast members to get the exciting scoop!

After taking home 9 Daytime Emmy Awards last weekend, including Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Drama Series Writing Team, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" is gearing up for one HOT summer of fun. In a newly released promo highlighting the debut of a new rooftop set, Dive Bar, several of the soap's hottest stars including Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman), Sharon Case (Sharon Newman), Camryn Grimes (Mariah), Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman), Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby), Christel Khalil (Lily Winters Ashby), Hunter King (Summer Newman), Matthew Atkinson (Austin Travers), Kelli Goss (Courtney Sloan), Robert Adamson (Noah Newman), Sean Carrigan (Stitch Rayburn), Bryton James (Devon Hamilton), Mishael Morgan (Hillary Curtis) and daytime newcomer Burgess Jenkins (Billy Abbott), appear in their sexiest beachwear as they live it up in the beautiful skies of Genoa City this summer.

On Tuesday, June 24, Genoa City said hello again to a familiar name with a new face. On that day, daytime newcomer Burgess Jenkins took over the role of Billy Abbott on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" from David Tom, who himself succeeded three-time Daytime Emmy Award winning actor Billy Miller in the popular role, but how did Jenkins land himself on daytime's most watched drama series? "My management called me and they were talking to me about this role, and when they sent me the breakdown on the character, I just fell in love. I absolutely fell in love with Billy," said Jenkins when Soap Opera Network spoke with the actor in the gifting suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA as part of Daytime Emmy weekend. "There's not a whole lot of characters you see that are so multi-layered and interesting that way. I had a chance to meet with the producers to discuss the character and the show, and it just seemed like a good fit," added Jenkins, who noted that the conversation he had with producers on the character helped give him something to dig into before the cameras began to roll.

Soap Opera Network's 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards red carpet coverage continues, this time with "The Young and the Restless'" Elizabeth Hendrickson (ex-Chloe Mitchell), who was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress. Her co-star, Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman), may have taken home the award at the end of the night, but Hendrickson was shining like a winner on the red carpet!

Once again proving that its at the top of the heap when it comes to daytime, CBS swept the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy awards with 13 drama related wins, leading all networks. “The Young and the Restless” took home a combined total of nine wins during the Creative Arts Emmy Awards and the Emmy Awards, while “The Bold and the Beautiful” managed to snag four. NBC’s “Days of our Lives” took home three Emmy awards, while ABC’s “General Hospital” garnered two. Meanwhile, Toln.com’s “All My Children” won three awards, while “One Life to Live” took home three, as well.

Last night, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences officially announced the winners of the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a star-studded gala at The Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles. Soap Opera Network live blogged during the exciting event, but we also wanted to bring you a comprehensive list of the night's big winners. Read on to find out who took home the drama related golden statues!

In 2013, "General Hospital's" Jane Elliot (Tracy Quartermaine) and Kelly Sullivan (ex-Connie Falconeri) and "The Young and the Restless'" Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman), Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe Fisher) proved they were the outstanding supporting ladies for their respective daytime dramas. They now compete with each other to find out which of them was the most Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Daytime Drama Series during "The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards."

“The Young and the Restless’” Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) is celebrating her first ever Emmy nomination as well as an exciting storyline involving Sean Carrigan’s Stitch, but that didn’t prevent her from opening up about a slew of other topics when reporters chatted with the actress shortly after she received the news that she’d officially be in this year’s Emmy race. The actress had no qualms about discussing the emotional year “Y&R” has experienced, what it was like working with Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott), her obsession with Tristan Rogers (Colin Atkinson) and more.
