The Young and the Restless

As playwright Oscar Wilde once said, true friends stab you in the front. And so begins the inevitable downward spiral between “The Young and the Restless” besties Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), two female characters who’ve become a daytime rarity — true best friends — and whose recent storyline is setting the pair up to potentially take a serious fall. Will the recent death of Chloe’s daughter, Delia, followed by the heart wrenching transplant of the little girl’s corneas to Chelsea’s infant son, Conner, followed by the possible news that Conner’s father, Adam (Michael Muhney) is responsible for Delia’s death end up tearing the best friends apart? Soap Opera Network spoke with both Egan and Hendrickson for the scoop!
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.

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.

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!
In addition to casting Michael Graziadei ("The Young and the Restless", "American Horror Story") in the pilot for "The Lottery" (Lifetime Casts Former ‘Restless’ and ‘American Horror’ Star in Pilot), Lifetime has also cast former "Guiding Light" and "Days of our Lives" actor Wes Ramsey in its other new pilot, "Deliverance Creek," from Nicholas Sparks Productions and Warner Horizon. The series revolves around Lauren Ambrose ("Torchwood", "Six Feet Under") in the role of Belle, who becomes an outlaw after trying to save her family's land from the corrupt parties looking to take control over it.
According to Deadline, Lifetime has cast Michael Graziadei (ex-Daniel Romalotti, "The Young and the Restless"; ex-Travis Wanderley, "American Horror Story") in "The Lottery," a new pilot the network is developing that hails from Warner Horizon. "Lottery" tells the story of a world where women are no longer having children, which leaves the human race on the brink of extinction. A national lottery is held after 100 embryos are later found to have been successfully fertilized. Graziadei is set to play Kyle, described as a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born before new breaks of the new development.
