Update: Tune in to this week's CBS and Days of Our Lives episode on Wednesday for an update to this story.
In the same interview with Co-Executive Producer Paul Rauch and Soap Opera Digest, Head Writer Maria Arena Bell gives fans a little taste on what's in store for the residence of Genoa City. According to Bell:
It's going to be a great year. The 36th anniversary episode will be an extraordinary show. It will be one big story culminating and then moving on to the next. We have a wedding coming down the pike and there will be major stories, not just with our core characters, but with those you haven't seen that much, like Daniel. We have some really startling revelations and someone from the past will be returning that will be a HUGE story. So there's a lot brewing. We have a ton of great stuff.
In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, The Young and the Restless Executive Producer Paul Rauch, has finally come clean on who was behind the controversial storyline of having Guiding Light heroine Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) cloned. Rauch said, READ MORE
Let's talk about the Reva clone. This is the first time I ever told this. We did a lot of different stories on OLTL, like Viki goes to heaven, Clint goes back in time and Eterna which, by the way, were No. 1 rated stories during sweeps period. However, Guiding Light is not the kind of show that should be doing stories like that. But the network and P&G came to me one day and said, 'We think this is a story you should do.' And there was just no saying no. When they got tired of the story, the network said, 'Give Reva a drink that ages her so she'll die and we can get out of this.' I always believed that story belonged on a show one OLTL or Days. It doesn't belong on Guiding Light because it's a show about family and social interaction.
Cloning on Days yes, I can see that on there but OLTL? Have to call foul ball on that play Uncle Paul...
According to Soap Opera Digest, Roscoe Born (ex-Trent DAYS) will pop up on The Young and the Restless once again as Kevin's (Greg Rikaart) father, "Terrible" Tom Fisher on March 31. Before anyone asks, yes Tom is dead, John Abbott (Jerry Douglas) did bust a cap in him back in 2005 so fear not people. Tom will come in the form of a ghost to terrorize Kevin once again.
