MICHAEL: We learned awhile back, the awful truth that Jessica did want harm to come to her sister Natalie, and that was not just Tess wanting that. Did you know that it was going to be written that way? Jessica just stood back and let all of the awful torture that Tess did to Natalie and Jared happen!
Once again Michael Fairman from On Air On Soaps has gotten the 411 on your favorite soaps and their stars. The soap journalist had a no holds bard chat with The Young and the Restless ac Eric Braeden (Victor) and asked him about the firing of Don Diamont (Brad).
MICHAEL: What are your thoughts on Don Diamont (Brad) being ‘let go’, since he had been part of the Genoa City canvas for so long?
ERIC:I was very sad about that, to be quite frank with you. He did some of his best work in the last months, where he played the ‘shifty’ guy and the bad guy and you don’t know quite what he is up to. I think he played that extremely well. I always think that’s a mistake to let people go that have been part of the fabric as long as he has been. Furthermore, he was related to people on the show, and personally, I think those things are a mistake. If you want to want to save money, then cut down on hiring new actors. READ MORE
Will David finally find out this time out, that he is really Asa Buchanan’s son?
You know, they have been teasing this story for eternity. Talk about dragging out a story! Even by soap terms, it’s taking a long time. I remember when the previous head writer was there and I went back under contract for three years starting in 2003. They told me, “We are going to reveal you are Asa Buchanan’s son.” I thought,” That’s cool, because he is the patriarch of the show, and that means I will be working a lot!” Well, I tell you now, it is going to be revealed, but it is six years later! This is 2009! READ MORE
Looks like Joshua Morrow (Nick) and Sharon Case (Sharon) are as sad to see veteran actor Don Diamont (Brad) exit The Young and the Restless as we are. The ageless supercouple recently talked with Michael Fairman for an interview with TV SOAP Australia and the subject of Diamont's departure came up. Here's what Morrow had to say:
I think it's a big loss, Don is part of the old guard. He is like a piller there. What ever translates on the screen as his character, in real life, he is one of the most giving, considerate people on the planet. It's tough. He has a big family. Story-wise in daytime the landscape is changing, and every show is going to make difficult decisions, and it will make people upset and sad, and they could lose their jobs. It is so unfortunate that it happened to Don. He is a guy that I respect and I am saddended by this."
Case added this about losing her onetime leading man: READ MORE

Michael Fairman has a new interview with One Life to Live's Andrea Evans in which she reveals that Tina has an upcoming love interest and more scenes with Erika Slezak.
MICHAEL: When you returned for the 40th anniversary episodes you only had short scene with Viki at the airport. Many die-hard fans felt perhaps short changed. But I hear there are more Tina and Viki moments on the way!
ANDREA: There will be more Tina/Viki absolutely. I think Ron Carlivati tried to bring in a scene with us before Erika Slezak (Viki) left for her vacation. Between our two schedules… to get me their before the 40th anniversary, and her leaving on her vacation was challenging. He really struggled to find the opportunity for us to have any scenes at all under those circumstances. I promise you there will be a lot more to come.
