Y&R has hired British television producer Mal Young. He has worked on several
British soaps or "continuing drama series."
During SNL's Weekend Update on Saturday, December 19, 2015, cast member Kate
McKinnon came out as Deenie, an avid soap watcher, who updated host Colin Jost
on the latest happenings on her favorite show while chowing down on leftover
baked salmon. The joke is that, after 40 years, she doesn't really know any of
the characters' names, but the nicknames she gives like "Moustache Man," "Skinny
Minnie," "Big Boobs," & "Sexpot" while describing high-rise fires and people
kept in boat houses perfectly describe the recent plots on Y&R. It's a gag made
even funnier if you're a soap fan yourself and know exactly what she's talking

Scott Elrod (ex-Joe) and his fiancée Vanessa Vazart expect their first
child together in 2016.
CBS' "The Young and the Restless" marks 1,405 consecutive weekly wins – a
total of 27 years – as daytime’s #1 drama, according to Nielsen live plus same
day ratings for the week ending December 11, 2015. The Young and the Restless
currently in its 42nd season, began its winning streak the week of Dec. 26,
Adrienne Frantz (ex-Amber, B&B/Y&R) and her husband, Scott Bailey (ex-Sandy,
GL) became first-time parents with the arrival of their daughter, Amélie Irene
Bailey, on December 1, 2015. Two weeks earlier, Adrienne was in the hospital
with a broken rib courtesy of her "ninja warrior baby."
Daniel Goddard (Cane) badly fractured his left elbow during a fight sequence
on the Y&R set on Friday, September 18, 2015 and underwent surgery on the 23rd.
UPDATE: On November 24, he tweeted that he has suffered a setback and needed
emergency surgery, because his body rejected the metal in his elbow and it
had to come out.
FURTHER UPDATE: On December 7, Daniel was back at work on the Y&R set. :)

Michelle Stafford (Nina, GH; ex-Phyllis, Y&R) announced the birth of her
second child, son Jameson Jones Lee Stafford, on Saturday, October 24, 2015,
with a sweet Instagram shot
of the baby with his big sister, Natalia, 5.
Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) sued CBS, Sony, and Bell-Phillip Television
Production, Inc. for not rehiring her, because she spoke out about the show's
lack of diversity in front and behind the camera. She says she left in 2007 due
to racial discrimination but then wanted to return to Y&R or join B&B and was
rejected. CBS responded that "after leaving Y&R on her own initiative, Ms.
Rowell has attempted to rewrite that history through lawyers' letters and a
lawsuit that has no merit. We harbor no ill will toward Ms. Rowell, but we will
vigorously defend this case."
UPDATE: On May 13, 2015, CBS & Sony in a motion to dismiss responded that
her claims are patently absurd since she never actually applied for any role on
Y&R or B&B. "This lawsuit is nothing more than a blatant attempt by Plaintiff to
force her way back onto a daytime television soap opera after she voluntarily
resigned from her role in 2007."

FURTHER UPDATE: On November 10, 2015, California District Judge John Kronstadt
dismissed six causes of action against Sony, with leave to amend if Rowell can
prove a more viable retaliation claim.

soiree at the GCAC, but things aren’t completely settled between them.
Complicating the evening is Neil’s presence at the party. At one point, Devon
leans over to kiss Hilary and she enthusiastically responds. Neil witnesses the
intimate moment and is distracted enough to stumble, then crash into a huge,
decorative paper heart. Hilary is not amused that her kiss with Devon was
interrupted, so she suggests that they leave because their presence is obviously
tormenting Neil. Devon agrees and they go to her suite, where she wastes no time
in cozying up to her husband. Devon’s resolve crumbles and they end up making
love. However, don’t expect a happily ever after, considering everything the
couple has been through.

again, he sets out on a personal mission to make it happen. Billy shows up at

Mrs. Abbott again. Victor surprisingly announces that he won’t do anything to
stop the imminent marriage. Of course, the fact that Billy is still secretly
after the software project could become a huge obstacle. Billy then meets
Victoria at Top of the Tower for a romantic dinner. After they share a dance,
Billy drops to one knee and pops the question! Will Victoria change her mind?
