"The Young and the Restless'" Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) was nominated for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by CBS Daytime Senior Vice President Angelica McDaniel and he's gladly accepted!
If you ever thought that "The Bold and the Beautiful's" Scott Clifton (Liam Spencer) had a James Bond type style about him, but couldn't figure out why, the actor donned an elegant suit with a martini glass and cigar in hand after being challenged by friends and "B&B" co-star Darin Brooks (Wyatt Spencer) for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which definitely explains things.
After being challenged by "The Young and the Restless" co-star Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman), Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher) has exclusively shared with Soap Opera Network video of himself taking part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which included a surprise appearance by best friend and neighbor, Rebecca Budig (ex-Greenlee Smythe, "All My Children").
It's the craze that has swept the nation, social media and Hollywood over the last month as the world seeks to help fight Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord according to the ALS Association website. Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Microsoft's Bill Gates and Harpo's Oprah Winfrey have already done it and so have a cruise ship load of daytime soap stars past and present, which now includes real-life best friends Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea, "The Young and the Restless") and Chrishell Stause (Jordan, "Days of our Lives"), who were challenged by Egan's mother, Mary. They weren't alone! Also taking part was "Y&R's" newest star, and Stause's real-life boyfriend, Justin Hartley (Adam Newman).
