Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) snuck into the cottage where Sharon (Sharon Case) has been hiding and did a bit of snooping. As she was about to leave, Sharon, who had been in a light sleep on the couch, woke up and discovered her there.
When Chelsea returned home, she and Adam (Michael Muhney) argued about Sharon. She accused him of still being in love with his ex. Adam finally agreed to have Sharon move off their property. However, when he went to tell Sharon the news, he discovered she'd already left. READ MORE
Since she first appeared on our TV screens, The Young and the Restless' Cricket Blair (Lauralee Bell) has been the ultimate good girl. That's all about to change, since the legal ace will soon swap spit with her ex-husband Paul (Doug Davidson), who just happens to be dating her BFF Nina (Tricia Cast)! TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan spoke with Bell to get the lowdown.
TV Guide Magazine: What triggers this?
Bell: Christine has basically thrown Paul a lifeline by finding the evidence that saves him from going to jail. She's freed him from this horrific chapter in his life and that's what provokes the kiss. This isn't some meaningless thing, though. Paul says, "I'm falling back in love with you." And Christine says, "I'm falling back in love with you, too. I want to give this a shot." Danny was the love of Cricket's young life. But Paul is her adult love. It's a serious, emotional reconnection. It could be a second chance for both of them.
Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Heather’s (Jennifer Landon) protests fell on the deaf ears of the judge, who threatened to hold Heather in contempt of court. When Cricket (Lauralee Bell) tried to intercept on behalf of the state, the judge wasn’t having any of it. He ripped into Cricket, saying she wasn’t actually a Federal employee at the time of the crime and the statute of limitations had run out. READ MORE

DC Interview: Bell Biographer Michael Maloney on Collaborating With Lee Phillip Bell, Family Legacy and What Made Bill Bell a StorytellerBy Jamey Giddens on July 24, 2012
There aren't many men who know what it's like to collaborate with Chicago-talk-queen-turned-soap-opera-legend Lee Phillip Bell. There was her late husband, the legendary William J. Bell, whom she co-created two of CBS Daytime's long-running hits, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful, with. Now there's also veteran soap journalist Michael Maloney, the man Phillip Bell chose to help tell her prolific husband's life story in The Young and Restless Life of William J. Bell: Creator of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. For his part, Maloney is quite aware of what auspicious company he's been keeping while working with Phillip Bell on the tome.
"Whenever I see my name in a press release, or on the cover of the book with Lee Phillip Bell, I think, 'The last time I might have seen something with her name on it, with someone else, was probably on the credits of Y&R and B&B.' You know, 'co-created by'. I'm thinking that's pretty damn good company to be in!"
You wouldn't find many soap fans, addicted to the countless hours of daytime television enjoyment the Bells have provided over the past several decades, who would disagree with Maloney's assertion. The author worked with Phillip Bell, as well as several of the late Bill Bell's friends, colleagues and children, for years in creating The Young and Restless Life of William J. Bell. The biography spans Bell's entire lifes and tells the story of his great love for Lee, their children and the daytime dramas they created together. READ MORE
