ALL THINGS RELATED

“The Young and the Restless” airs Weekdays on CBS. Weeknights on Pop TV. Anytime on CBS.com or the CBS app on Android and iOS enabled devices.

Long gone but never forgotten characters are popping up left and right on ABC’s “General Hospital,” leaving many fans wondering which fan favorite could be next. The recent reveal that Julian’s (William DeVry) henchmen, Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), is from Puerto Rico had many under the impression that he was related to Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) late wife, Lily Rivera (Lilly Melgar), which then lead fans to wonder if Melgar could be headed back to Port Charles!
Melody Thomas Scott may be celebrating her 35th anniversary as “The Young and the Restless’” Nikki Newman, but that doesn’t mean her Genoa City alter ego is the only acting challenge on her plate: She’s booked a guest starring role on CBS’s “The Crazy Ones!” And guess what? The Los Angeles native will be playing a boozy librarian — which won’t be a far stretch, considering Nikki is a recovering alcoholic!
Earlier tonight, Watros confirmed our suspicions by tweeting to her fans that she will indeed be leaving the CBS soap.

But for some reason, the four remaining soaps on air — “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless,” “Days of our Lives,” and “General Hospital” — continue to be stereotyped, as do the slew of former soaps that used to exist and the actors who have or currently are appearing on them.
