“The Young and the Restless” is no stranger to having sports stars visit Genoa City (Seattle Seahawk Superbowl champ Michael Robinson appeared earlier this year), but the next sports/soap opera crossover the sudser is planning has a bit of a twist: Instead of an athlete appearing on the show, it’ll be an athlete’s mother!
“The Bold and the Beautiful” has set off for locations like Paris, Abu Dhabi, Monaco and many parts of Southern California, making it quite the globe trotting soap opera. And that has left many CBS Daytime fans wondering if its sister soap, “The Young and the Restless,” will follow suit and take some of its characters out of Genoa City and around the world. We spoke with network execs to find out!
She’s gone, but she’ll never be forgotten — a statement proven true by “The Young and the Restless” regarding Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), who passed away last year but still remains quite central to storylines playing out in Genoa City. And the soap will once again honor her memory — exactly one year after Katherine’s onscreen death — with a remembrance ceremony in Chancellor Park that includes Tricia Cast (Nina Webster) and Michael Fairman (Patrick Murphy).
“The Young and the Restless’” Christine (Lauralee Bell) boldly declared that Austin (Matthew Atkinson) will pay for the atrocities he’s committed as of late, but is that truly the case? Soap Opera Network caught up with the character’s portrayer to find out!
“The Young and the Restless’” Hunter King (Summer Newman) didn’t win this year’s Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress for nothing: Her storyline has been chock full of exciting ups and downs — and according to the actress, it’s only going to get crazier as the summer continues!
Ever since it was revealed that Emmy-winning actress Eileen Davidson will be returning to “The Young and the Restless” as Ashley Abbott this September, fans have been chomping at the bit for more details regarding her return — including how the deal, which allows her to also appear on the Sony-owned NBC sudser “Days of our Lives” — came about. Soap Opera Network went straight to the Senior Vice President of CBS Daytime, Angelica McDaniel, to find out!

If you think you’re one of the biggest fans of the CBS Daytime lineup — including “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless,” “The Talk,” “Let’s Make a Deal,” and “The Price Is Right,” then you just might have a chance to win something pretty spectacular: The gift bag the network gave out at its Emmy party!
"Devious Maids'" Susan Lucci (Genevieve Delatour) famously received a record 19 Daytime Emmy Award nominations in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Erica Kane on ABC's "All My Children" before finally taking home the golden statue for the first and only time on Friday, May 21, 1999, after Shemar Moore (ex-Malcom Winters, "The Young and the Restless") declared, "The streak is over... Susan Lucci!"
There’s no doubt that the Daytime Emmy Awards play a large part of the daytime industry, but just how prevalent is the golden statue when it comes to the every day work lives of the people who make up the genre? Soap Opera Network spoke with performers, writers, producers and more to get their take on how often and how much the Emmys impact their work lives. Does the event and its promised accolades inspire them to work harder? Do they keep the Emmys in mind when filming, writing and performing scenes? And are the Emmy awards really necessary for the industry? There are varying opinions, so read on to find out what some of the genre’s heavy hitters had to say!
