Y&R and B&B Gear Up For Fashion Show Crossover Featuring AMC’s Jill Larson!





All My Children alum Jill Larson is taking part in The Young and the Restless’ huge spring couture extravaganza! According to TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, Larson will portray a stage manager hired to oversee Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) fashion show, hosted at the Genoa City Athletic club by Lily (Christel Khalil). Larson’s character will have the herculean task of trying to keep Chelsea, Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Hilary (Mishael Morgan) in check.


The Bold and the Beautiful’s Rick (Jacob Young) and Caroline Forrester (Linsey Godfrey) will also stop by the fashion show. Look for Godfrey to interact with real-life beau Robert Adamson (Noah). 

The fashionable drama will ensue April 11-16.  Also watch for Y&R's Hilary to take a trip to The Price Is Right on March 26, once Neil (Kristoff St. John) discovers how much of a fan she is of the legendary game show.

    I have always loved the conceit of there being a thriving fashion scene in a sleepy little town in Wisconsin! LOL! Only on soaps.
    And I don’t care about Godfrey giving scenes with her real life BF, what I want to see is Jacob Young and Melissa Claire Egan generate the combustible energy they had on AMC.

    Who cares? I didn’t watch AMC…Like the die hard, long time GH fans who didn’t want the OLTL characters on that show, I feel the same here.

    I think Y&R has been subpar for so long most have forgotten the criteria this show once adhered by. Current Y&R to me is like corporate America. Once upon a time companies used to give their employees matching 401k’s, bonuses, pensions, stock options and Christmas parties…now if a company gives you the 401k and the Xmas party its seen as great and an excellent company to work for. When did we decide settling for less was a good thing? SO much of what happens on Y&R has been done on other soaps, primarily GH, which is what I still believe Y&R is being molded after. We don’t get the full enchilada anymore. TO say Y&R is great to me merely means it’s gotten better at covering its bases but it’s still existing in its past shadow.

    I have a love/hate relationship with this show. It can be good at times, I give them that. Even moments lately where it resembles its old self (The Adam/Billy fallout out was near perfect). However, sooner than later we are bound to get shootouts, characters in peril (again), stunt casting and gimmicks being used to jumpstart the next arc because they aren’t writing to character like they should be. This was NEVER Y&R’s model, but it is now. It’s not smartly plotted anymore where the path characters take don’t force the audience to accept things that never happened. Writing wise, it is better than it has been in the last 3/4 years. But it’s no where near as excellent as it was when it was in its prime. Bring on the distractions!

    Totally different situations…the OLTL characters actually appeared on GH, Jill Larson isn’t playing her AMC character on YR. She’s just an actor from another show in a new role. Just like Jess Walton (who used to very on Capitol), Tracy Bregman (used to be on DAYS) and Peter Bergman (used to be on AMC) once were.

    The cross-promotion event is a great idea, but with these characters? No. Please stop propping Chelsea. She is a con artist bartender, *not* a fashion designer. To put her into the same room with the Forresters is an insult, to be put mildly.

    My only issue with the fashion show is that is is AAAALLLLL about Chelsea. As is 85% of this show. I just can not deal! I can’t! Has she missed as day this month. Will she be 100% for episode counts this month?

    Neil and Hilary bonding on TPIR should be fun and sweet.

    Love this. Glad that things seemingly are moving along, and we won’t be stuck with this kidnapping/hostage crisis forever.

    Also glad to see a little lightness is coming up in the show. It’s been a little dark recently…

    As for Chelsea, I’m enjoying her. MCE is a GREAT actress, and I don’t see where others have taken a back seat to her. Right now I think we are seeing a lot because she’s a part of the biggest story that is climaxing now. But the vets aren’t being pushed aside, and I don’t think there’s a big fixation on Chelsea, as much as it is the writers playing every beat that could possibly be played. The kidnapping thing, while some think it’s ridiculous, I think it’s actually good psychological storytelling…and I don’t mind it at all.

    ^^^ Exactly, Stoney. MCE is in the same storyline every one else is in. Every one is getting the exact same play. If anything they are propping Lane and their daddy Colin. I feel as if everyone is being propped whether it is bad or good. Every top player these past weeks of shows have had almost the same amount of lines as everyone else. MCE is just letting ya’ll have it with her acting skills and ya’ll can’t stand it. She took over for killer Miller and MM. Lizzie Hendrickson is coming in neck and neck with her. They loving performing this story for the fans. Its just a few nit pickers that have something to say.

    Where I am I feel that the show could not get any better. The fashion show is going to Bring It if the Bell’s are working along with JFP and her crew.

    I noticed in the past few episodes that characters have brought up “Forrestor Creations”…. Nikki’s VD gift came from there, and the corporation donated a large sum to the Delia event.

    [quote=pferrando]This could be good if it finally brings us back to Jabot.
    I wonder if Dylan will put on some pumps and walk the runway? Phelps?[/quote]

    P~ To funny but I doubt it because it would be toooooo much skin showing on him. The Ken\Cupcake Barbie Valentine scene where they had “just finished” making love, was ridiculous, hell Avery was showing more skin in her robe and Dylan all buttoned up in a black T-shirt. He’s nothing but a big wuss :party:

    I can respect his views on his religion but come on Steve you’re on a soap opera!! Hell! Robt. Newman (Josh, GL) is ordained minister and never filched about his stories. Josh was in bed shirtless, boxers & briefs with many, many women over the years and looking mighty HOT with his muscular, hairy chest :p :love:

    This does sound good and I’m sure the Bells w\BB is looking over this cross-over and not so much JFP…could you even imagine JFP trying to order Brad Bell around and taking charge of the whole show….I think not. ;)

    I hope we get a opulent, high standard cross-over but sigh we will more than likely have another hostage crisis on the catwalk…. :p

    I would have been excited if it didn’t sound like another all about Chelsea story. Meh. This show-eating-whitewashed-rapist can’t even take a vaccation after her brat was kidnapped. Ugh

    So Miss Lily is “hosting” YET ANOTHER event in the *ball room*? I guess the Delia Extravaganza/Hostage Takeover was deemed a HUGE sucess??

    An entire WEEK of Lily screeching and barking orders at everybody. God give me strength.

    Larson is a perfect addition to the canvas of the fashion world of B&B. She could easily fill the Sally Spectra void that has plagued the show for so long.

    You do not know how badly I wanted Womack’s gun to have TWO fatal bullets in it: one each, for those movers and shakers, Cain and Lily.

    I nearly laughed my ass off at DG’s overacting, and the scene at the hospital where the twins run up to hug “Big Daddy” right after he was shot!

    Of all people to be the body shield: Lily! “oh Cain! Save yourself! Go! ”

    At least Lauren had a sense of humor about being held captive — AGAIN!!

    Now it will be Agent Orange off to rescue Chesty and get in good with the MUMBLER!

    I like Jill Larson but in done with all this stunt casting. It doesn’t drive story and if they would devote that time and money to established characters I would love it more.

    That being said so I assume that Chloe gets off like Dylan did with kidnapping Connor. I’m getting tired of writers and loose way with fiction. It’s no wonder soaps are still used as punch lines.

    Chloe left the country with a child. She stole a passport. Not only is it an domestics crime but an international one since that plane will land in Paris. The pure fact that in 2 or 3 months Chloe will be in a “hilarious” cross over story shows that it’s a slap on the wrist.

    Why? I guess in the gc it’s ok to kill a child, cover up for the mirderer and kidnap all you want.

    Well, only if not Adam. Then forever you will be known as a child killer and evil soul.

    Awe. Poor put upon Adam. How dare viewers not forgive him for causing a child’s death and burning her remains in the fire. If Connor died by Chloe kidnapping him then she burned or buried the body to hide her crime then she would also be an unsalvagable character. As far as I am concerned, Adam is on the level of Sheila Carter…it was just one odious crime and misdeed after another.

    I read the whole interview on ML’s TV Guide about the crossover and this is going to be fun time. He stated:

    “Lily (Christel Khalil) will offer up the Genoa City Athletic Club for the unveiling of a new fashion line by Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) called Chelsea Lawson for Jabot. The event, highlighted by cat-fights and other crazy hi-jinks, will feature fan fave Larson in the role of the harried stage manager, who will face quite a challenge when she must keep Chelsea, Lily, Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Hilary (Mishael Morgan) in line behind the scenes.” :bigsmile: :beer:

    OMG I forgot about Josh’s chest! Man he has an amazing chest, like you said muscular and hairy. That’s missed on daytime these days.

    Hopefully, this new starting of an organized crime syndicate wont just be swept under the rug for another NewmanE vs Jabot story-line. I would really like to see Colin spread his wings as a mobster moving and shaking things up in sleepy Wisconsin.

    Carmine is alive, lets see him back in the Game of Genoa City. Not as a Lauren stalker, but as a guy who could one of the legs of a romance three-way with Tyler and Abby. Forget about Mariah, she is a dead end — unless she is played by Christal Khalil. And maybe Carmine could play a type of Mobster with a heart, that would suit him just fine.

    Hopefully the new twist would be Paul & Christine vs The Mob, giving Christine a bigger role would be a big plus. Then finally bringing home Courtney on the force, as an undercover cop, reporting to Paul Williams, that would be a big double plus.

    The Show cant be All-Chelsea, All-of-the-Time. Anita is hardly on at all, and that is shame, because Cathy Bach has really grown into her role as Momma. Melissa Clare Egan must be one really busy woman. Chelsea is at home grieving her husband, Chelsea is at the Ball, Chelsea is held hostage, Chelsea is released, Chelsea and Vic are on a plane to Paris, Chelsea is knocking on the Paris condo door. As Jan Brady would say, “Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea!”

    [quote=coffeebean]For B&B and Y&R viewers who are interested, click on the links to watch the new promo videos for the week of Feb 24: Y&R http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3y0sM8c69Ls B&B http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDdToO8zk6I/quote

    Both were great promos! :) I hadn’t seen either.

    I liked YR concentrating more on one story. Sometimes the promos for YR they try to many stories for their promos.

    BB is HOT! >) I’m loving BB right now and this is what I’ve been saying BB is full of romances & relationships type of soap…Go ahead with you bad self BB! :love:
