Y&R's Gay Character Revealed




For the past few weeks my inbox has been getting a workout thanks to curious fans of The Young and the Restless wanting to know which Genoa City resident is gay as first reported by TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco. Well it is none other than pro bono lawyer Rafael Torres (Yanni Gellman). Rafe's secret will be outed when Lily (Christel Khalil) pretends to be cupid and tries to set up the legal eagle with her BFF Colleen (Tammin Sursok), not realizing Rafe plays for the home team.

A little birdie also told me Sharon (Sharon Case) will also end up knocked up, and you'll never guess who the father is. Seriously try to guess because with all that snatch tossing Sharon has been doing, it could be the desk clerk at the GCAC for all we know!  I had to give a lil' something out because it's too hot to keep all to myself and DC reader Timepass nearly fainted with the news. I told you that they weren't playing over at Bell Studios.

I'm hoping that Sharon's baby is Nick's...

Rafe is gay?! Hotness...
He is such a cutie pie. I hope that this won't all be for nothing. I wonder who he's going to turn out. Devon, maybe? Smile

Is Rafe going to be a drive-by gay or should we expect an actual storyline for him?

They have to hook him and Adam up come on!! This is too good an opportunity to pass up.

As for Sharon as long as Billy is not the father I'm happy.

Jillian, are you saying that you know with whom Rafe will be involved? And that this person is already on the Y&R canvas?

I haven't seen him on the show yet but he's hot! I'll have to tune in for him for sure. I hope they hook him up with another guy and they get the same amount of storyline GL's Otalia gets.

Rafe? Serious? I thought it was suppose to be a MAJOR character...!? Anyway, I hope they give him a storyline then and keep him.

As for Sharon I hope that they don't mess up this character. With her kleptomania and her sleeping around they made us believe that she is sick in a very serious way. To let this end with a pregnancy ... don't know if this is the right way.
As for the father - when Sharon has to be pregnant it should be Nick's. Billy just became a father and we don't need a baby that ties Sharon and Jack forever - that's for sure.
Oh and with Sharon pregnant it should be clear that Ashley's kid doesn't survive and she revisits a very dark place... Sad

Jillian you are right! MAB and Co. are killing me. I can't wait to watch Y&R everyday.

I think that's a nice twist with Rafe. A lot of potential with that.

Now Sharon the only person that I don't want her to have a kid with is Billy. I am hoping Nick, but I might be able to accept Jack. Come on let this finally brng Shick back together for good!!!

I predicted it was Rafe from the Get-Go. By process of elimination, with the exception of Anna and Abby, he was the only person not to sleep w/Sharon. AAAHA! No, but the day this word broke, the NEXT was the day he was helping Adam manuver 'round the ranch, so I said "It's Rafe. And he's going to fall in lust w/Adam" and then I thought "If I'm Adam, I'd take Rafe over Assistand DA Dim Bulb anyday". As for Sharon, NOOOOOO suprise here either. If your mental state is off the charts, and you LITERALLY sleep w/anyone that walks through your door at the club, you probably aren't taking the time to refill your birth control. You're too busy stealing tacky ceramic eggs from Living Rooms. So it's either Jack, Nick or My Billy. I'm sure the news that Sharon and Billy were 'doing what they were doing' will break and destroy Jack. But then the dust settles, a daughter will be born to Nick and Sharon they'll name her Casey in honor of his aunt, who will probably succumb to her cancer, and also in reference to Cassie. But we won't find all this out the bambina is born...she slept w/ALL THREE in a months time. Ohhhhhh, Sharon.......

I just hope Y&R does right by its gay storyline and not "nuke" it up, so to speak!

Yanni Gellman is one hot hunk of man. I hope Adam falls for him and/or Noah. I don't think the couch sex with Eden really did it for the poor kid! I want Noah to fall for Rafe but have to wait til he's 18 before they can be together!

I had Rafe pegged as soon as Esmeralda was revealed as his aunt. Rafe is the next logical step for: Kevin. Sharon no suprise -- especially when she felt sick at Billy/Cloe wedding. Before she died, Cassie told Sick they would have another baby.

I agree with soapjunlie88 I too hope they really address Sharon unstable state, and don't sweep it under the rug.

They already sweep under the rug the fact that Tyra was NOT suppose to be able to adopt Ana, because she forge Yolanda signature. That is why the Winters wanted to adopt her.

I don't know who is responsible for that decision, but I don't appreciate laziness that does no deal with their own crapola!

Any corporate twist in May? We love the corporate stories, they are very rare nowadays.

And 3 babies, and 2 WTD, in a row? We deserve better than that old soapy predictable plot!

Good spoilers as always Jillie, thanks for th head's up!

I second the sentiments of other posters that I'm hoping the writers develop whatever ails Sharon. I'm a fan of Sharon's and though seeking men to validate her shaky self worth is true to her character, the quantity of men (and the klepto) is not.

Nick being the baby's daddy would be poetic justice given Nick's history with Phyllis, and appropriate given Cassie's prediction of another girl born to them. Perhaps as he and Sharon are attempting to rebuild a relationship, the true source of her erratic behavior (bi-polar? split personalities? depression?) is discovered. You know there will be further rocky seas for Nick & Sharon, and it all can't be in the form of Phyllis. One negative outcome of Nick and Sharon having a child - I can already see Nikki's sanctimonious side emerging... again.

As for Rafe being gay, the chemistry between he and Adam was spot on. Though Adam is on a war path against all things Victor, I'd like to see Adam evolve as a character. If he were to evolve into a relationship with Rafe, that could be very interesting entertainment. We already know he has a thing for lawyers (Heather). Smile

Rafe will become a major character, and perhaps we haven't learned yet who the major gay character is Smile This story is not over, folks.

How about Brad as Sharon's baby's dad?

That Sharon would turn out to be pregnant with Nick's baby would be such poetic justice. After all it shouldn't come as any surprise with Phyllis dropping anvils lately about Sharon TAKING HER HUSBAND AND LITTLE GIRL.

As for Rafe and Adam what a great way to watch Victor the alpha male's head actually explode. tee hee hee

Rafe is going to hook up with Daniel. We've been hearing about a "big" storyline for Michael Graz for months. This has gotta be it.

Its going to be a Adam and Rafe s/l and I can get into that. They would be a great couple and drive Victor off the wall.

Yeah, Nick is like his father, LOL>
