How did the cast and crew of The Young and the Restless deal with those draconian budget cuts we've heard so much about in recent years? By making a hilarious spoof entitled The Young and the Recyclable, that's how!
From the delightfully-wicked brains of those yucksters at Y&R comes this video vignette envisioning what would have happened if Y&R had done the unthinkable and decided to permanently recast Jeanne Cooper's legendary Kay Chancellor. Check out the late Paul Rauch in the spoof, proving he was quite the thespian too in his own right! Oh and Eric Braeden, you better WORK!
Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) has really mellowed over the decades. The same guy who once locked a romantic rival in a dungeon—and fed him rats—is now resorting to offering impromptu island vacations to thwart his foes!

Eric Braeden has never been shy about sharing his opinions. However, in an interview with TV Guide Magazine the popular The Young and the Restless star clarifies what he meant by his "I'm very pissed off!!!" tweet when responding to a fan regarding the show's head writer shake up.
TV Guide Magazine: Okay, spill it. Here's your chance to clarify why you're unhappy with a writer change that has a lot of Y&R fans pretty damn pleased.
Braeden: What I really wanted to say is that I don't like change. We had just gotten used to this new writing-producing regime at Y&R and suddenly there's another change, and I don't like it all! It's unsettling. So, yes, it pissed me off, though I was only responding to a fan. I had no idea my tweet would stir things up.
Braeden also reveals he can't complain about where Y&R is at at the moment.
TV Guide Magazine: Then, you're satisfied with the state of Y&R as is?
Braeden: Yes, certainly with what pertains to me. I speak for no one else in the cast but I, for one, can't complain. And Josh has written some very interesting stuff for me that's coming up. And, again, our numbers are up. Hello? I have no idea why this has happened. I am always concerned about the show. It's been a major part of my life, but there's a limit to what one should get involved in. In the end, I'm an actor. I'm paid for what I bring to the screen. READ MORE
