The Young and the Restless is celebrating its 51st birthday next month, and CBS is not waiting that long to give the daytime Soap Opera its present.

What did they get for the people of Geona City? Four more seasons, bringing the show’s total to 55!

“The YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has been a staple of daytime television for over 50 years, and it is with great pleasure that we will continue that legacy at CBS,” said Amy Reisenbach, president of CBS Entertainment. “The talented cast and writers deliver compelling performances and stories on a daily basis and have provided iconic moments that have kept the show on top of the ratings and thrilled generations of fans for over five decades. We look forward to seeing what new creative twists and turns they have planned for the folks of Genoa City.”

Congrats to Y&R for the renewal! Long live Soaps!!!


John J. York gives an update on his cancer battle
December 22nd, 2023 under TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

A few months ago, John J. York revealed that he is battling two blood and bone marrow cancers, myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple smoldering myeloma, and needed a stem cell transplant.

Last month, he miraculously got that transplant. And since then, he has been social media silent.

Today, he gave an update on how he is doing. “I wanted to give you a little update as to how things were going along. They’re actually going along very well. I’m still in the middle stages of everything,” the actor said. “I have a long road ahead, but the test results are looking good. I’m feeling really good.”

And he is also looking good, even though he lost his hair due to the intense chemo treatment he needed to get the transplant.

The General Hospital star also revealed that if all goes well, he will hopefully be back on the show by the summer. And we can’t wait to see Mac Scorpio back in Port Charles as soon as he is healthy enough to return.


AnnaLynne McCord is heading to Days of Our Lives

We first met AnnaLynne McCord on Nip/Tuck, and she followed it up on 90210! The actress was the perfect bitch on both shows. So it makes sense that her upcoming job is going to be on Days of Our Lives.

According to Deadline, her character is described as a “fascinating and complicated woman who is devastatingly beautiful, almost angelic in her outward appearance. The desire of many but her heart belongs to only one man who continues to push her away for her own good.”

I hope she gets to do more than that because they got a future Soap Queen when they hired her. Soap Operas are her wheel well!

McCord will make her debut early next year on the Peacock Daytime Drama.


Young and the Restless’ Christian LeBlanc reveals he beat cancer
October 25th, 2023 under Sick Bay, TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

Christian LeBlanc has been missing from The Young and the Restless, and now we know why. The actor told WWL-TV he was diagnosed with the blood cancer Myeloma in June, but he is in remission.

The Y&R star started to notice his left eye was a little wonky, and he was rapidly losing weight. Even the fans began to notice that there was something wrong with his eye, so they reached out to him.

So he went to the eye doctor, who told him to go to a neurological specialist. That is when they noticed that he had a tumor in his nasal passage that was pressing against his optic nerve.

And that was the first time he spent any time in the hospital in his 65 years. Now that he is in remission. Hopefully, it will be his last visit to one.

LeBlanc will return to the CBS soap on Thanksgiving.


Tom Cruise almost played Bo Brady on Days of our Lives
October 17th, 2023 under TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

Kristian Alfonso and Peter Reckell were on the podcast Hey Dude… The 90s Called, and they told David Lascher and Christine Taylor about auditioning for the Soap Opera.

Alfonso was the first to get the role because she was under contract with NBC. Then, they wanted her to test with potential Bo Bradys to see if they had chemistry. Since they gave her the role without auditioning her, she didn’t want to test with the actors in case they didn’t like her acting. So, she had her people lie to the producers.

Several actors, including Reckell, came in to test for the role, and one of them became one the hugest movie stars in the world. That man is Tom Cruise.

Reckell didn’t remember that, so Alfonso shared the story of how they found out about it. The late Frances Reid, who is the matriarch of the series, was on a plane, and she sat next to Cruise. And when she told him she was on the Daytime Drama, he shared with her that he auditioned for Bo.

Reckell is happy to have the bragging rights that beat Cruise out for the job, especially since he thinks Cruise “did okay for himself ”

Now, imagine what if Cruise got the role of Bo? Reckell would’ve been the one who starred in Top Gun and Mission Impossible, and Cruise would’ve been talking to two people who didn’t do any research before they filmed the podcast with the actors.

They actually asked if Bo and Hope came before Luke and Laura and if Days is one of the only soaps left. It would be like asking Christine Taylor who she is married to because she is more famous for that than any of her roles.
