The Young and the Restless

Thursday, October 17, 2013 4:56 PM EDT
It’s been a whopping 24 years since Elizabeth Dennehy graced the daytime stage as “Guiding Light’s” Christina ‘Blake’ Thorpe Marler, and she’s finally ready to get back into soap operas. But this time, she’s headed to “The Young and the Restless’” Genoa City!
This past August, “The Young and the Restless” fans saw one of those rare circumstances when behind-the-scenes drama rivals that of the intense drama seen onscreen: actress Christel Khalil (Lily Winters) filed a lawsuit against her talent agency for reportedly being so sloppy and remiss, they sent her on an audition for the very sudser she was already working on!
As we previously reported, Eileen Davidson is making a return to “The Young and the Restless” as Ashley Abbott, but don’t expect the sunshine and lollipops that surrounded her last return to Genoa City (for Victor’s wedding); the tragic death of Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Billy’s (Billy Miller) daughter, Delia, is what brings the makeup maven back for three episodes.
Since the passing of “The Young and the Restless’” Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) this past May, her son, Corbin Bernson, has done everything possible to properly honor his mother’s life. Not only did he personally take part in memorial episodes the sudser broadcast — and brought some of her real life ashes to be included in Kay’s funeral scenes — he kept fans apprised of his mother’s declining health before her death and the family’s status afterward. Now, he’s doing yet one more touching act in his mother’s honor: Dedicating his latest film to her.
Anyone who’s watched the past few days of “The Young and the Restless” knows that it has been heart wrenching, to say the least. The hit-and-run accident that caused the death of Billy and Chloe’s young daughter, Delia, has been center stage, and the performances that have gone along with the emotional storyline are what Emmy dreams are made of. We caught up with Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman), who not only had plenty of kudos for her onscreen best friend, Elizabeth Hendrickson, but also had a few details as to how the tragic story will affect Chelsea... and beyond.
