EmmyTrophies.jpg

After only streaming on the Internet last year, the Daytime Emmys are back on broadcast television! The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences has announced that the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will air live on Sunday, April 26, at 8:00 p.m. ET on Pop. They also revealed that the Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards will be held Friday, April 24, at the Universal Hilton in Los Angeles. This year, the Daytime Emmys will be held at the historic Warner Bros. Studio lot on Stage 16, the home to iconic films like Casablanca, Jurassic Park and Ghostbusters.

"Our new partnership with the Pop network is an ideal platform to present our signature gala," said Bob Mauro, President, NATAS. "With the Warner Bros Studios as our venue, where so many great films and television shows have been made, coupled together with Michael Levitt, our executive producer, who created the 'TV Land Awards,' and has produced numerous live event specials including 'The Producers Guild Awards,' 'The Billboard Music Awards,' and 'E! Live from the Red Carpet' shows for the Golden Globes and Oscars®, this promises to be a very special telecast of the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards."

"As a network that celebrates talent, we are thrilled to bring the Daytime Emmy Awards back to television for the fans," said Brad Schwartz, President of Pop. "Daytime audiences are some of the most amazing and passionate in all of television, and we are proud to honor the greatest works and achievements of daytime. Adding premium live events to our schedule is just another exciting way we are building Pop. We're going to have a lot of fun with this."

Pop, the rebranded TV Guide Network, is also home to the re-airings of episodes of THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL and THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, so it's a great place to host the Daytime Emmys. Check your local listings for Pop, and mark your calendars! Are you excited to see the Daytime Emmys back on TV?

Is Y&R's Austin Dead Or Not?

MatthewAtkinsonGal.jpg

For a dead guy, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Austin sure seems to be getting around! Which always begs the question: Is the hunk really dead? Or, given the many lookalikes and twins (Caleb/Cane, Mariah/Cassie, Jeffrey/William) that have sauntered through Genoa City, could fans soon be getting a double dose of Austin with a doppleganger?

"I don't know what's going to happen," admits his portrayer, Matthew Atkinson. "From Day One, Austin has been a very mysterious character, and we haven't figured out much about him. There's a lot of questions we could ask, but no answers just yet! I can't give anything specifically away, I would say you will learn a lot about Austin in the coming weeks."

Right now, viewers are learning a lot in flashbacks, including the stunning revelation that Austin and Abby were having a hot and heavy affair! "When I first came on the show, Melissa [Ordway, Abby] and I talked about how her character is related to everyone, so we thought at some point we were going to have a relationship!" laughs the actor. "I guess that kind of ended up happening! I enjoy working with her; she's such a sweetheart!

"Keep watching," Atkinson adds with a grin. "This is not a predictable storyline at all!"

For more on Austin and Atkinson's future, don't miss our in-depth feature interview in the CBS Soaps In Depth issue on sale Monday, March 23!

You must be a current Y&R Fan Club member in order to purchase tickets to attend, but there's still time to join because reservation packets will not be mailed out to members until Sunday, March 15.

The Sheraton Universal will be offering a special rate on hotel rooms, and a block of rooms has been set aside.

Interview: Keith Hamilton Cobb's Performance Of A Lifetime!

KeithHCobb.jpg

For the past two years, Keith Hamilton Cobb (ex-Damon, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS; Noah, ALL MY CHILDREN) has been fine-tuning a one-man play, American Moor, which he wrote and stars in. After performing the piece in smaller theaters and workshops, the actor will soon be taking his show back to where he began his career: the New York stage! "That's a big deal," he shares with Soaps In Depth. "It will be the show's Manhattan debut. That's exciting to me, to be doing some of my own work on a stage in the big city where I started to do this theater stuff!"

Victoria Rowell Speaks Out!

Rowell.jpg

Soaps In Depth was present this morning when former THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) held a press conference in New York City to discuss her lawsuit against CBS and Sony.

"This is a profound moment for me," the actress shared, "as an African-American woman who wishes to continue to live the American dream. I've always advocated for myself, and was taught to do so after 18 years in foster care. And I advocate for others, and was taught to do so. So this is not about me. This is about myself and the many, many other African-Americans who have been denied the right to perform in front of and behind the camera. Specifically on Y&R."

In her suit, Rowell claims that CBS and Sony have refused to rehire her in retaliation for her being outspoken about the lack of diversity in the daytime community, and particularly on her former show, the top-rated daytime drama. "It is an incestuous industry, and it has retaliated against me," the actress told In Depth at this morning's conference.

We will have more on Rowell's case in an upcoming issue. In the meantime, we want to hear your thoughts on her claim, so please comment below!

Y&R Star Sues CBS And Sony!

Victoria_Rowell02318.jpg

The daytime drama at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS isn't just in front of the cameras, it's also behind the scenes! According to Daytime Confidential, Victoria Rowell (ex-Dru) is suing both CBS and Sony! The suit alleges that she was not rehired at Y&R in retaliation for her public and private complaints regarding the lack of diversity at Y&R both in front of and behind the camera.

Rowell claims that she reluctantly exited the soap in 2007 after years of racial discrimination described in the complaint. She also claims that since 2010, she has tried to return to Y&R or sister soap THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL but been denied. We will continue following this story and bring you any updates, but in the meantime, sound off with your own views on this lawsuit in the comments!

UPDATE: A CBS spokesperson tells Soaps In Depth: "We were disappointed to learn that, after leaving the cast of "The Young and the Restless" 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."

Y&R' Collins Is Cooking!

CollinsHomeFamily.jpg

Jessica Collins (Avery, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) drops by the Hallmark Channel's HOME & FAMILY show today to chat with hosts Cristina Ferrare and Mark Steines about Avery's upcoming storyline and do a cooking segment featuring her famous Crème Brûlée French Toast!

"I love 'make ahead' dishes, which this is," Collins tells Soaps In Depth. "This is one of the easiest things to make because if you can mix things in a bowl you can make it. It's something my mother and aunt would make. It's great for kids because you can make it the night before.

"It's a hobby that turned into a passion that kind of turned into a second career for me," adds Collins, who graduated from the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in 2009 and has a Web site dedicated to her culinary creations. "My blog (JessicaCollins.com) is all about making cooking accessible. It's for first-time cooks — beginners, college kids. I sometimes cook a lot fancier in my real-life, but I also use those recipes, too. I don't have a lot of time to plan and make something amazing. My blog is built much more for my lifestyle — I'll come home, put a chicken in the oven, take a bath while it's cooking and then getting out, eating my chicken and watching Y&R with a glass of wine!"

HOME & FAMILY airs on the Hallmark Channel at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT and 9:00 a.m. Central Time. Check out the recipe for Collins' French toast — and many other tasty dishes — at JessicaCollins.com.

Y&R's Hartley Moonlights With MISTRESSES!

Justin_Hartley28953.jpg

If you're enjoying Justin Hartley as Adam on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, you'll be able to see even more of him when he returns for the season premiere of MISTRESSES, where he plays the recurring role of Scott.

Hartley will appear in the season premiere, which will resolve last season's cliffhanger where Joss left Scott at the altar, and is scheduled to appear in at least one additional show during the 13-episode season. The ABC primetime sudser is set to return this summer, and we'll let you know an airdate as soon as we know one.

A rep for Y&R assures fans that this moonlighting will not affect Hartley's screentime as Adam, so have no fear — the actor's not going anywhere!

Meet Y&R's New Kyle!

LachlanBuchanan.jpg

Kyle Abbott hasn't been seen on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS since he went to go work in New York last year. But the soap is bringing Jack's son back to Genoa City, now being played by Australian actor Lachlan Buchanan. "So excited to start my new adventure with the brilliant team at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS," he posted to Twitter.

The actor may be a newcomer to American soaps, but he's got plenty of sudsy experience, having appeared on Aussie soap HOME AND AWAY (like THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL newbie Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy)!). And since Kyle has been spending time in New York, not Down Under, Buchanan will be doing an American accent for the role!

Are you excited to see Kyle back in town? What would you like to see next for the character? Sound off in the comments!

Is Heinle Out At Y&R?

Amelia.jpg

With new headwriter Charles Pratt, Jr penning the futures of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS characters, there have been rumors that a major character is on their way out of Genoa City. And while some fans worry that Michael's cancer could lead to a tragic exit for Christian Jules LeBlanc, the big rumor now is that Amelia Heinle's Victoria will not be returning after visiting her son, Reed!

News that the actress deleted her Twitter account added fuel to the fire, but an insider at Y&R tells Soaps In Depth that there are no truth to the rumors and that Heinle's deletion of her Twitter account has nothing to do with her status at the show.

There are definitely big doings coming up on Y&R (just wait for our February Sweeps issue on sale on 1/26 for more details!), so it's not impossible that one or more actors could be on their way out. And we'll do our best to keep on top of all the rumors and bring you the truth as we find it out!

Y&R Star Passes

BeauKazer.jpg

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS family suffered a devastating blow on Tuesday, December 30, with the passing of Beau Kazer at the age of 63. The actor originated the role of Brock Reynolds in 1974 and made frequent appearances on the soap over the years. His most recent was in 2013 for the funeral of on-screen mother, Katherine. Kazer's wife, Sharon Alkus, would like fans to know that Y&R was a huge part of his life that he was very proud of.

"I remember the first time I heard your voice and thought wow! This guy should have been in radio!" Daniel Goddard (Cane) wrote on Facebook to his late co-star. "Then I watched you act and was blown away with how natural and honest your performances always were. God Bless."

Our sympathies to his family and friends.

The actor is due back on set Tuesday, January 6, but as for what's to come for Colin, he remains tight-lipped. "So what can I say?" he writes. "Not a whole lot. However, it seems more compelling than some of the 'fare' we've had of late. Think you'll like it."

Marano's SWITCHED Christmas!

On THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, an impulsive Eden struggled to be the better version of herself that her big brother, Michael, expected. Now, Eden's portrayer, Vanessa Marano, plays another confused teen — this one, Bay, a rich girl who found out that she'd been swapped with Daphne (played by Katie Leclerc), an infant who'd grown up to become the deaf daughter of a working-class single mom — on ABC Family's SWITCHED AT BIRTH. But in "Yuletide Fortune Teller," the pre-season-four episode airing Monday, December 8, at 9:00 p.m. EST, things are about to get even crazier!

Inside A Y&R Villain's MANSIONS!

MichaelCorbett.jpg

Even if his last "residence" wasn't a trash compactor on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, it's safe to say that Michael Corbett (ex-David) has much better digs these days! The actor-turned-executive producer has a series called MANSION HUNTERS, which features an inside look at some of the most glamorous and recognizable digs in Hollywood! You can binge on a marathon run of 8 half-hour episodes of the reality series starting tonight, December 5 at 9:00 p.m. EST on Reelz.

Corbett's been interested in real estate since his days on Y&R, where he played Nina's devious husband back in the early '90s. How'd he get the idea for this show? "I thought it'd be really fascinating to see behind the scenes of these mega-mansions that rent out for $100,000 a day [for movie and TV productions]. I put together a show that's about the people who put these deals together."

Some of the stars that have been to the homes profiled in MANSION HUNTERS include movie stars Angelina Jolie, Chris Hemsworth, and Megan Fox. Programs and films that have shot at these places include MAJOR CRIMES, The Aviator, and L.A. Confidential. "There's nothing out there like this show that combines all the elements of mansions, money, movies, Hollywood and celebrities," Corbett says.

Stakes run high in closing the agreements between mansion owners and productions so watch for lots of interpersonal dynamics between the folks that work in the firm that negotiates the deals. Featured on the show is Paul Kim, head of Image Locations, and his team of associates which includes Camila More (ex-Gillian, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Anna, GENERAL HOSPITAL) and her twin sister Carey More (ex-Grace, DAYS)!

While Corbett's hand is all over MANSION HUNTERS, he won't be appearing on camera in it. "It's a departure for me," he says. Since being presumed dead after accidentally activating a trash compactor in which he was hiding on Y&R, Corbett's continued to act, but he's also branched out into hosting for shows like EXTRA and MANSIONS & MILLIONAIRES.

Part of the fun of watching MANSION HUNTERS is spotting which homes and estates were used in the making of your favorite shows. Corbett previews: "One episode talks about where Lady Gaga fell off a balcony in one of her music videos!"

Y&R Star Needs Your Help For A Good Cause

Tickets are available exclusively at DearMarchShop.com, and money raised by the event will be donated to the cancer charity Believe Big in Jane's name.

Y&R Star's Tragic Loss

KristoffStJohn.jpg

On Sunday, November 23, Kristoff St. John (Neil, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) lost his son, Julian. The actor's ex-wife, Mia, posted the tragic news to Twitter. "Our son was the light of our lives," she wrote, "an artist with a beautiful mind and spirit. He fought long and hard against an illness for which there is no cure. Unfortunately, the pain became too great for him and I dare not say he lost the battle — he simply chose to set himself free.

"My fight for mental health will continue," she added. "They may not find a cure in my lifetime, but we can try and prevent the loss of another beautiful soul."

Is Nick Really Giving Up On Love?

NickWomen.jpg

In today's very special episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Nick was visited in a dream by all the women in his life. It was a cornucopia of treats, including visits from ex-loves like Grace and Amy, not to mention flashbacks galore! While the beginning of the episode found him blaming the women in his life, they seemed to eventually convince the hunk that he, in fact, might be the problem! "I love women," he declared to his mom, "you know that. But the pain and agony that comes with it? I'm done!" But let's face it... this being a soap opera and Nick being one of its leading men, that seems unlikely! And since they say love comes just when you stop looking, it seems likely that Nick will soon be giving his heart away yet again. But the question is... to whom? Which lucky lady is the right one to help heal Nick's heart? (And no, you can't nominate yourself!) Hit the comments below!

Y&R Recap: Nick Befriends Adam's New Enemy!

NickDog.jpg

Billy and Chelsea agreed that they each had significant emotional hurdles to jump, but said that they loved one another and wanted to be together. Jack and Phyllis' engagement party was a major bust, largely because half the guests had to head over to Victor's for a party being held in Nick's honor. But Nick proved that every party really does have a pooper by skipping out on his own bash. Why? Because, having taken his conversation with Grace to heart, he wanted to spend a little time getting his head screwed on straight. To that end, he headed to a cabin in the woods, where he quickly befriended a seemingly stray dog. That pup, however, turned out to be Bugatti, a.k.a. Gabriel's beloved pet! Unfortunately for Adam, Bugatti seemed to immediately sense that the man pretending to be his master was not the real deal!

With Ashley became the latest person to warn Jack that the whole balancing-two-women-at-once thing was going to blow up in his face. Apparently finally listening, he went straight from his engagement party to the GCAC, where he uttered today's massive understatement to Kelly: "We need to talk!"

Will Jack finally tell Kelly the truth... or is he going to wind up stalling yet again? Will Gabriel's cute puppy be Adam's undoing? Hit the comments and let us know your thoughts!

Y&R Recap: Victor Calls Out Maureen!

NikkiVictorVictoriaBaby.jpg

Victoria's hospital room was hopping as various people swung by to see the new baby, including Victor, Nikki and both of the newborn's potential babydaddies. Given that Victor thinks his daughter should raise the baby solo, Billy had the zinger of the day when he responded, "The Gospel according to Victor Newman, including miraculous conception, no father required!" But it was a visit from Nick that helped the new mom realize it was past time for her to find out who fathered her child.

Speaking of Nick, he very nearly had sex with a more-than-willing Grace, but at the last moment realized he needed to re-examine his choices when it came to women and relationships. "Don't you think," responded Grace, "you could have waited to have this revelation until after we'd had great sex, maybe?" Maureen was just about to spill the beans about Victor's drinking when Victor ripped into Stitch's mom for having put Victoria and the baby in danger. In typical Victor fashion, he threatened to be Maureen's "worst nightmare!" Not surprisingly, when Stitch later swung by to check on his mom, her hospital bed was empty!

A heated conversation with Avery left Sharon realizing she needed to find a lawyer, pronto, because Nick was going to pursue custody of Faith. Crossing paths with Dylan, Sharon expected that he'd jump aboard the bus under which everyone in town seemed to want her thrown, but he was surprisingly sweet and supportive. Moments later, however, she had another conversation with Nick, who said that if she thought for even a second that he had any love left in his heart, she was crazier than she'd ever been! Forewarned being forearmed, Sharon called David Sherman and asked him to represent her in the coming fight. Drowning his sorrow with free drinks (the joy of owning a bar... um, and being rich), Nick looked up when someone entered and wondered why the mystery person was there.

Having overheard Avery and Joe talking about the kiss he'd planted on her, Dylan warned his rival that he'd made things personal. Michael met with a new doctor, but refused to allow Kevin to stand by his side in support. Both dealing with family issues, Kevin and Mariah bonded over coffee. Michael and Lauren later got together at the GCAC, where she questioned exactly why he had been so randy of late. (Our advice... um, sit back and enjoy it, honey!)

Y&R Recap: Colin Blackmails Devon!

DevonColin.jpg

Having caught Devon smooching Hilary, Colin demanded $2 million to keep his trap shut. Conveniently enough, Neil arrived and thought the scoundrel should join them all for dinner! Word spread about Victoria having had the baby, and everyone was thrilled. Heck, even Victor was relatively supportive (when not trash-talking Billy, of course). Nikki pointed out that either Stitch or Billy would be forever tied to Victoria, but Victor declared neither man was worthy. Victoria's doctor suggested it was time to answer the big question: Who's the daddy? Jack seemed ready to tell Kelly about his having gotten re-engaged to Phyllis (although he probably wasn't going to mention the whole "and-we-celebrated-by-having-sex" thing), but she was called away to deal with her mom's medical crisis.

Y&R Recap: Adam Slips Up!

AdamSageConstance.jpg

On Monday's episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Victoria gave birth to a baby girl with the help of Billy and Stitch. Adam continued to pretend he was Constance's grandson, Gabriel, but nearly blew it with his distaste for spinach. Luckily, Sage was on hand to help cover his gaffe. Jeff was intrigued when Chelsea offered to pay him to drop the lawsuit. "It's incredible," she told her dad, "I can actually see the dollar signs bouncing around in your head!" Jack proposed (again) to Phyllis, who accepted. While in bed, he finally admitted that there had been someone else. Good thing he didn't name names, because Phyllis joked — at least we hope it was a joke! — that she'd kill the other woman! Summer and Austin debated what to do for Thanksgiving.

Davidson Back On Set At DAYS!

DavidsonDAYSreturn.jpg

Eileen Davidson just can't slow down! The soap-hopping actress, who is currently playing THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Ashley, is now back on set at DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Kristen in what the soap is calling a "can't miss" storyline set to air in early next year! And this is in addition to her real life being taped as one of the newest cast members of THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS!

When last we saw Kristen, she had abducted Theresa as part of a twisted plot to have Brady's baby. Of course, as you'll notice in the photo NBC released of Davidson on set at DAYS posted with this article, she doesn't look particularly pregnant. Since DAYS tapes so far in advance, could Kristen be returning to Salem with a little bundle of joy? Unfortunately we'll have to wait until the spring of 2015 to find out what the next step in her crazy scheme will be! Stay tuned!

What You Missed On Today's Y&R!

VictoriaTrapped.jpg

For some viewers on the East Coast, Wednesday's episode of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS was interrupted by breaking news. You can catch the episode on CBS.com... or let us catch you up on what you missed!

Maureen refused to let Victoria out of the closet, and closed off the vent when Victoria continued to yell for help. After tossing Victoria's cell and purse in the trash, Maureen called Ben, begging him to keep their secret. She then collapsed with a heart attack! Ben found his mother on the ground, and rushed her to the hospital, unaware that Victoria was trapped in the nearby closet — and going into labor! At the hospital, Stitch called Victoria and left a message cancelling their dinner plans.

Nick and Sharon told Faith that they weren't getting married after all. Upset, Faith stormed off. Sharon asked Nick not to turn Faith's life upside down. Not surprisingly, Nick blamed Sharon completely for whatever happened with Faith, and told her that he would never forgive her. Mariah learned the truth about what Sharon had done from Summer. Instead of condemning her, though, Mariah offered a rare show of support for her mom.

Phyllis discovered Jack and Kelly's texts which revealed their love for each other. Instead of confronting him, the redhead manipulated Jack into a corner, suggesting they get married and have an engagement party, which Kelly could help her plan! Joe surprised Avery at her office. When he suggested she'd soon get bored of Dylan, she slapped him. He responded by yanking her into a kiss. Furious, Avery accused him of taking over Crimson Lights to get back at Dylan, and promised to take him to court to prevent that — as well as sue him if he ever laid hands on her again! Later, Joe went to see Dylan, and suggested they be civil with one another. Dylan suggested he find another coffee place to drink at! Nick asked Avery to be his lawyer to get full custody of Faith.

Chapman Brings Play To Florida!

Chapman.jpg

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' fans in the area around Baca Raton, FL, are in luck — Judith Chapman (Gloria) will be bringing her one-woman show, Vivien, to the Keith C. and Elaine Johnson World Performing Arts Center on Saturday, November 8 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, November 9 at 4 p.m.

"I call Vivien the original international super star #&151; before Marilyn Monroe and before Elizabeth Taylor," Chapman says. "She was so young, and yet she had these two iconic roles: Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With The Wind and Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire. But unfortunately, she suffered with what we now call bipolar."

The play, for which Chapman has already won rave reviews, will celebrate the 75th anniversary of Gone With The Wind. For tickets, call 561-237-9000 or visit: events.lynn.edu.
