Now that The Bold and the Beautiful is beginning to once again resemble something deserving of being shown on television, you know, like Cops or Maury Povich, my creative juices are beginning to perk up about the show. This is in large part due to the hella-hot May/December romance jumping off between Lesley-Anne Downe (Jackie) and Brandon Beemer (Owen). Downe has always proven electric opposite a good boy toy, whether it be Eddie Cibrian (ex-Cole, Sunset Beach) or Sean Kanan (ex-Deacon, B&B), so putting the sexy cougar with a guy who could be Brad Pitt's dark-haired little brother was a no brainer.

Is it possible that I just watched/heard a full blown repudiation of the Lynn Marie Latham years come out of Jill Abbott's (Jess Walton) mouth on The Young and the Restless? Even if it wasn't, the quote "I feel like I've wasted the last six years" is still worth the quote of the day.
What was your favorite quote of the day on your favorite soap?
The feud between Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) and Jill (Jess Walton) is back and The Young and the Restless kicked things off with a food fight, wedding cake and all! We haven't had a good food fight on soaps since the one on Days of Our Lives between Sami, Chloe and Nicole. Who would have expected to see these four veteran actresses on The Young and the Restless in a food fight? Not me. Everyone played it well and I don't know if they enjoyed letting loose and throwing wedding cake at each other, but I loved watching it.
Now if only One Life to Live would get Catherine Hickland back as Lindsay Rappaport so that she and Nora could have another food fight, I'd be in heaven. A lot more food fight photos after the jump. READ MORE
This just in! Soap Opera Weekly is reporting that Jess Walton has in fact re-signed with The Young and the Restless and will remain with the show.
These developments follow three days of reports since word first came out of her being ill. Here is a timeline:
March 27 - Soap Opera Digest reported that The Young and the Restless had sent out a casting call for the role of Jill Abbott, after Walton appeared not to be feeling well. That same day our own Jamey Giddens posted a Wishful Casting for the role of Jill Abbott after hearing it may be more than a case of Walton being "under the weather."
RUMOR has it Jess Walton is thisclose to accepting the pay cut The Young and the Restless wants her to take to remain in the role of Jill Foster Abbott. Apparently the actress started having second thoughts about playing hardball when she realized just how serious the CBS sudser was about replacing her. Again, this is UNCONFIRMED, but we are hearing things are looking up. Let's hope so. We adore Walton's smoky, sultry voice, her Marlene Dietrich-esque sexual swagger and most of all her stellar acting chops, and hope to see her having catfights with Jeanne Cooper (Kay) for years to come, but we also understand Y&R's dilemma. the soap must go on!

Soap Opera Digest has now updated their earlier report about Jess Walton being out "sick" at The Young and the Restless. They are now reporting the same thing people like TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco and we here at Daytime Confidential have been saying all along, Walton is in the middle of tense contract negotiations and playing hardball.
