Young and Restless flashback: Traci and Lauren square off over the Pool Boy



With youngest Abbott daughter Traci (Beth Maitland) returning to Genoa City next week I figured I would look for a classic clip highlighting Traci's legendary feud with one-time bad girl Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman).

In this scene Traci and Lauren (who have been rivals since high school) square off after Traci's ex-husband Brad Carlton (Don Diamont) suffers a heart attack during a romp with sex kitten Lauren. Lauren contends that it was all the pressure Brad was under during his custody battle with Traci over their daughter Colleen that caused his heart to stop, as opposed to her practical knowledge and execution of the Kama Sutra.

For newer fans of Y&R this is a perfect glimpse of the fabulous Bregman before she was reduced to playing a talk-to during The Gloria Hour and of Maitland, who before Kathy Brier (Marcie, OLTL) gave women who don't shop in the Junior's section at Macy's someone to root for.

I just loved how they wound up fighting off the edge of the set's carpet boundary and briefly wound up on the studio's concrete floor! LOL

Lynn Herring wasn't in this clip. She was on GH at the time, she never did Y&R.
