On Tuesday, November 12, “The Young and the Restless’” Jess Walton (Jill Foster Abbott) and Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) answered fan questions via CBS Connect, the premiere online social connection platform amongst the broadcast networks, which includes live chats with CBS stars via Twitter. Using the hashtag #AskYR, the chat with fans lasted roughly 35 minutes, which included questions varying from discussion on the Veterans day episodes, whether or not the ladies were able to come up with plots or storylines for their characters, which is particularly reserved for the writers of the show, as well as what their very first acting jobs were, just to name a few of the questions.
On Friday, November 15, “The Young and the Restless’” Marco Dapper (ex-Carmine Basco) will be taking part in “The Space Gallery ART ATTACK,” which is being presented by The Kollaborative. Dapper will present six pieces of his own artwork alongside artists Chase, Sebastien Walker, MDMN, Ostrich, Paul Allison III, Masonfish, Justin Lemus and John Bryars.
The event is open to the public and will take place at The Space Gallery, located at 5550 Hollywood Blvd Los Angeles CA 90028, from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM.

On Wednesday, November 27, don’t forget to tune into CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” as Eileen Davidson returns to Genoa City when her character Ashley Abbott surprises her family for Thanksgiving.
When asked in a recent interview with Soap Opera Network whether she’d be interested in making return visits to “Y&R,” Davidson said, “I would be open to doing any show… It’s really about schedule.” She added, “I have such a wonderful history with ‘The Young and the Restless.’ I don’t have any weird feelings or bad feelings, so they don’t really have to do much to win me back to come back for a couple of days. I’m happy to do it, and it’s fun for me. I don’t really want to be working any place right now full time, so this is actually kind of perfect, to be able to come back and see people. [And it’s] an amazing experience: Nobody gets bored with me, nobody is tired of seeing me. It’s like, ‘Oh yay, she’s back!’”
Davidson most recently appeared in late October to support Ashley’s brother, Billy Abbott (Billy Miller), who lost his daughter from a hit-and-run.
On Friday, November 8, Soap Opera Network reported that SOAPnet, now the old way to watch soaps, would cease operation on December 31, 2013 at 11:59:59 ET. In a piece by the Los Angeles Times, Ben Pyne, president of global distribution for Disney Media Networks, said, ”SOAPnet had a great run.” He added, “It served an audience of super-soap fans. And when given the opportunity, all of our affiliates kept the channel up and running.” The affiliates Pyne refers are the cable and satellite operators including DirecTV and Cablevision, et al that have kept the cable network on their channel listings whether a new deal with Disney and the carriers was signed or not.

Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” hits theaters nationwide on Friday, November 8, and the franchise’s ABC drama, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D.,” is set to feel the film’s repercussions in an all new episode, “The Well,” slated for Tuesday, November 19!
According to an official press release touting the “Agents” episode, Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. pick up the pieces left behind in “The Dark World” — one of which threatens to destroy a member of the team.
Things haven’t exactly been funny over in “The Young and the Restless’” Genoa City as of late, which made CBS’ recent Daytime After Dark standup comedy event all the more needed — for fans and the actors, alike! Soap Opera Network caught up with Peter Bergman at the event, and he not only spilled details on the one thing that terrifies him, but also on who he thinks is the worst father in the world (Hint: It’s probably exactly who you think it is!). Read on for the comedy — and the drama!
Soap Opera Network: Did I just overhear you say that you would never, ever want to try standup comedy?
Peter Bergman: Nothing would terrify me more! What I think is funny and what you think is funny are probably two very different things, and the idea of just throwing my stuff out there thinking, “Well, this is funny,” and waiting for your reaction is, oh my god scary!
Look out for some new cattiness on the new season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” because two new women have joined the cast — one of which is former “The Young and the Restless” star Carlton Gebbia (formerly Carlton Elizabeth)!
The British designer — who briefly appeared on “Y&R” back in 1999, as well as in “Suddenly Susan” that same year — joins Peurto Rican model/actress Joyce Giraud for season four of the popular reality series, which premiered tonight on Bravo. She’s married to David Gebbia, owner of Stockcross Financial Services, and is said to be taken under Lisa Vanderpump’s wing on the show.
Below check out this racy trailer for the season to see Gebbia already causing trouble!
