9. No Remarrying For Tracey Bregman

While her long-running Y&R character, Lauren Fenmore, is currently worried about her missing hubby, actress Tracey Bregman can barely relate to those concerns in real life. When asked in an interview with Closer Weekly if she’d remarry, Bregman offered up a knee-jerk response: “If I lose my mind!”

The actress, who has two sons with her ex-husband, Ronald Recht, ironed out that statement a little further. “I would like to find a partner who I can have fun with and hopefully spend my life with, but I don’t know if I’d ever get married again,” Bregman explained.

8. Eileen Davidson Sounds Off On Real Housewives

Soaps veteran Eileen Davidson reached a brand-new audience when she joined The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, but she didn’t stay long. In conversation with Soap Opera Digest, Davidson explained why she jumped out of the reality TV game. “There was definitely a learning curve and I never really did learn the curve, let’s face it,” Davidson explained. She accused the show of editing footage to make her look like a “hick”, and didn’t anticipate that every wardrobe choice would be criticized. “I figure it’s a TV show, nobody’s going to know my crappy purse,” she said in the podcast. “Wrong! I wasn’t planning on getting called out for it!” You’re too good for that scene, Eileen!

7. Richard Burgi’s Timely Reminder

Y&R alum Richard Burgi (ex-Ashland) shared a poignant tribute to his mother, who’s set to turn 98 years old. In the message, which details the family decision to move his mother from an assisted living community to a full-time care facility, he wrote: “She said she’s had a great life, is ready to meet her loved ones on the other side… During this time of such chaos in the world, I pray that more people find humble gratitude in their blessings and challenges and remember, ‘from dust we came and to dust shall we return’.” Look to the comments, where former cast-mates Amelia Heinle (Victoria) and Sean Dominic (Nate) sent their love.

6. Where’s Kevin? 

As Y&R spoilers hint that Michael Baldwin has gone missing, viewers are hoping to see more of Baldwin’s half-brother, Kevin. However, in a new interview with Soap Opera Digest, actor Greg Rikaart has poured cold water on any great Kevin storylines in the pipeline. “For better or for worse, I’m not particularly heavily utilized at Y&R at the moment,” Rikaart pointed out. “So there haven’t been any challenges [scheduling appearances at both Y&R and Days Of Our Lives], which is great”. Great for Days viewers, I guess, but not so great for us!

5. Melissa Ordway’s Adoption Tribute

If you’re curious how Melissa Ordway performs so well as worried mom, Abby, it’s because she’s a devoted mother herself. And alongside her husband, Justin Michael Gaston, Ordway celebrated her daughter Olivia’s Coronation Day. Or as Ordway calls it, her “gotcha day”. “2/27/17 was a very special day in our house,” Ordway wrote on Instagram. “It was the day the state of California made our adoption official.”   

4. Camryn’s Puppy Love

Camryn Grimes took to Instagram recently to share some news: “Hey guys, my name is Burgess!” No, the Y&R star isn’t changing her name… she’s introducing her new pup! “If I’ve been especially absent and not posting, it’s because we’ve spent the last month welcoming this boy into our brood,” Grimes shared. “Are we insane? Yes. Do I ever sit down? No,” she added. “But we are happier than ever.”

3. Peter Bergman Is Giddy About Keemo Plot Twist

Viewers weren’t the only ones surprised to hear Keemo’s name mentioned recently (or should that read, “finally”) – Peter Bergman was likewise stunned! In an interview with, the actor who portrays Jack Abbott shared his surprise upon revisiting Keemo’s storyline and hinted at huge twists to come. 

“Jack’s next step is to begin looking into the life that Keemo had,” Bergman shared. “And what he finds is a surprise. And then, following the surprise, what comes next is going to shock the audience!”

2. A Trim For The Moustache

After forty years of memorable performances, the separation between Victor Newman and Eric Braeden must be getting pretty thin. Still, we reckon that even Victor Newman could get a haircut without tongues wagging – Eric Braeden, on the other hand, cannot!

After sharing a photo of his latest trim in progress, fans reached out to share their tips. When one viewer mentioned spotting his cowlick on a recent episode, Braeden responded with a hearty laugh. 

1. Happy Birthday, Michael

In birthday news, Michael Mealor celebrated the big 3-0 on February 28th… or was that March 1st? Being a leap-day baby, I guess the choice is his! There has been fresh speculation on the former Y&R star ever since reports emerged about his on-screen partner, Hunter King, being replaced. Mealor hasn’t updated his social media profiles since last August, however he still identifies as “Kyle Abbott” on his Twitter profile. If Summer is returning to Genoa City, might Kyle come as well?
