SPOILERS: Carmine and Noah's Pasts Come Back to Haunt Them on The Young and The Restless! Plus 2013 Previews!By Jillian Bowe on December 17, 2012
Carmine/Alex/Noah: New Genoa City transplant Carmine has a bit of history with Det. Alex Chavez. Carmine is bar tending, when Alex arrives on the scene. Alex immediately recognizes the troublesome lad, and starts to ask him if he's from New York. Carmine pretends not to know Alex, because he's trying to sever his father's mob ties. He's constantly getting flack for his family's "business”.
A quick thinking Carmine lies, and says he's from Detroit. Alex whips out a picture of Noah with a girl, and wonders if he knows them. Carmine isn't sure of the girl's identity, but remarks on Noah’s short fuse, which perks Alex's ears. What exactly did Noah do in NYC?
Jack: Old Smilin's family ambushes him with a drug intervention.

Nikki/Chelsea/Sharon: The socialite and the grifter bump into each other at On The Boulevard. When Chelsea tries to chit chat with Nikki, the diva is a little snotty with her. Nikki apologizes right after her outburst and confides in Chelsea how the two aren't so different, as Nikki was just like her when she was younger (Say what?).
The pair begins talking about the Newman Ranch fire. Nikki admits she doesn't know who the culprit was, but remarks it isn't kosher for someone to destroy a family's history and memories.

Deadline Hollywood Daily's Nikki Finke is reporting that the recent split between AFTRA and SAG over the upcoming Actors Strike has a daytime connection.
In the post Finke reports that the Bold & Beautiful's Susan Flannery has been circulating a petition to " decertify AFTRA as the union representing the actors on the long-running soap" but that Flannery's petition was common knowledge and that AFTRA is blowing everything out of proportion.
We've posted a paragraph from the letter sent out by AFTRA below but be sure to visit Deadline Holly Wood Daily for the entire story and further details.
Excerpt: "AFTRA recently became aware that leaders of SAG have involved themselves in a campaign to encourage cast members on the CBS daytime drama "The Bold and the Beautiful" to decertify AFTRA as their union. The people leading this drive apparently believe that decertifying AFTRA would further the goal of having one union for all actors. In fact, it would do the opposite. If successful, it would leave the performers on "The Bold and the Beautiful" stripped of any union representation and uncovered by any union contract. This situation is sadly not surprising given SAG Hollywood leadership's ongoing campaign of misinformation to disparage AFTRA."
