But before she takes off, she sat down with Soap Opera Network to spill the beans on why she decided to walk away from “Y&R,” what’s in store for her future, and what fans can expect from Chloe’s final days on the canvas.

The busy actress will be stopping by The Hallmark Channel’s “Home & Family” on Tuesday, April 1 to discuss the latest twists and turns in Chelsea’s more-than-complicated life. “Trophy Wife’s” Malin Akerman and The Dancing Scientist, Jeffrey Vinokur, will also appear.

Yesterday, Soap Opera Network featured a Center Stage interview with “The Young and the Restless’” Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) detailing his new film, “Tentacle 8,” which is out on DVD in select stores and on Amazon now. But as promised, we also got the star to open up about all of his “Y&R” drama, too! Read on to get the actor’s take on Sharon’s (Sharon Case) paternity lies, Victor’s (Eric Braeden) machinations, the search for Adam and the recent departure of some of the sudser’s most popular stars!

It’s no secret that Nick is fiercely protective of Sharon, but what is a secret is that Victor has been making Sharon believe she’s crazy by hiring a Cassie look-alike (Camryn Grimes) to speak with her mom from “beyond the grave.” It’s only a matter of time before Nick finds out what his father has done, and Morrow says you can bet his alter ego’s reaction won’t be a good one! “Nick has taken an interesting stance with his father now, where it’s like, he is who he is, so let’s just be father and son and that’s pretty much it; he stays away from him,” the actor says. “Like, be my dad when you need me and I’ll be your son when you need me, and that’s it, because he’s fed up with all of his ridiculous maneuvering to try and control the family and Newman Enterprises and all of that stuff. So if I had to bet, Nick will be having an unbelievably strong reaction to finding out that Victor has been jacking with Sharon in this fashion. It’s pretty much one of the more evil things [Victor has done], so it can’t be a good thing if Nick ever finds out about this, and you can bet… it won’t be a real positive, fuzzy moment for the Newman family.”

With “The Young and the Restless” gearing up for the unveiling of Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) new fashion line, Chelsea Lawson for Jabot, and the subsequent battleground between the fashionista and Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson), as well as Lily (Christel Khalil) and Hilary (Mishael Morgan), it would only make sense for the series to use the storyline as a crossover opportunity with sister soap “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
