Y&R's Greg Rikaart: "Can't Imagine I'm Ever Going to Have to Play Talking to a Deranged Mascot Head Again"By Jamey Giddens on March 07, 2013
Greg Rikaart is the latest The Young and the Restless star to share memories from his almost 10-year stint on the 40-year-old sudser. While Kevin Fisher has come a long way since giving teenage Lily Winters (Christel Khalil) VD—embarking on many morally ambiguous sojourns along the way—nothing Kevin has endured was more insane than donning a chipmunk outfit to go on a crime spree.
Watch Rikaart relive the chipmunk story and others below! READ MORE
Okay, we're all thinking it. How long will it be before The Young and the Restless showrunner Jill Farren Phelps makes a play for exiting General Hospital star Brandon Barash? Barash is one of the sexiest and most popular stars currently part of the daytime landscape; somebody better snap him up!
Barash would prove a great recast for Scotty Grainger, the writer son of Lauren Fenmore Baldwin (Tracey Bregman) and the late Dr. Scott Grainger (Peter Barton). When we last saw Scotty (a pre-The Lying Game Blair Redford), he was being used as a pawn in one of Sheila Carter's (Kimberlin Brown) lethal plots against his mother.
More recently, Lauren sent her and Michael Baldwin's (Christian LeBlanc) son Fenmore (Max Ehrich) to live with his big brother, when Sheila's daughter Daisy (Yvonne Zima) was tormenting the clan. With the Fenmore-Baldwins once again in crisis, now is the perfect time for Lauren's eldest son to come home! READ MORE
Ever wonder why The Young and the Restless’ Kevin (Greg Rikaart) keeps getting caught up in get rich quick schemes, even though he owns a popular coffeehouse? Want to know why Lily (Christel Khalil) hasn’t put the brakes on Tyler’s (Redaric Williams) romantic overtures? This Wednesday, Feb. 6, Rikaart and Khalil will answer fan questions during a live chat starting at 12:30 pm EST. READ MORE
No. 10: Neil and Harmony, The Young and the Restless
We're sure the brass at The Young and the Restless hoped pairing uptight, buppie Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) with another sassy, sistah from the streets would generate the same kind of heat Neil's relationship with street urchin-turned-fashionista Drucilla Barber (Victoria Rowell) accomplished in the 90's. It didn't.
Man, was it painful to watch two popular, talented soap stars like St. John as Debbi Morgan—as promiscuous, recovering crackhead Harmony— attempt to manufacture chemistry where there obviously wasn't any to be found.
After being turned down by Gloria (Judith Chapman), Kevin (Greg Rikaart) went to Michael (Christian LeBlanc) to borrow the money to save his home. Michael whipped out his checkbook, but paused momentarily when Kevin told him he needed $10,000. Michael gave Kevin a lecture before writing the check. He told his brother that he was doing it for Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Delia, not him. READ MORE
