Thom Bierdz

SPOILER ALERT: Identity of Thom Bierdz's Y&R Character Revealed!

Well it looks like the Chancellor is out of the bag on The Young and the Restless! In the Comings and Goings section of her New York Daily News column this week, Carolyn Hinsey lists Thom Bierdz as "Phillip Chancellor 3rd". As you'll recall, it was previously reported that Hinsey ran into Auntie Maria at some swanky, New York shindig and found out about a "big return". Do you think Auntie Ri Ri blabbed, since by now we all know the big return wasn't Michael Damian showing up to sing "Rock On" in the lobby of Fenmores? 

I guess Hinsey's scoop means a certain Aussie is as phony as those faux furs Lynn Marie Latham wanted poor Nikki Newman to disgrace herself by wearing in public, on the streets of Genoa City proper. Didn't anyone tell LML once a stripper graduates to the real stuff, she can't go back? God made everything for a purpose, and critters were made so that the wealthy can look chic for the Winter!  READ MORE

FLASHBACK: Daytime Confidential's May 14, 2008 Thom Bierdz Interview

What a difference a year makes. With all the buzz surrounding Thom Bierdz's return to The Young and the Restless, I decided to re-listen to the interview our Luke and Mike did with Bierdz on the occasion of Y&R's 35th anniversary (DC: 240) in 2008. Imagine how jazzed I was to discover the interview was uploaded on May 14, 2008, exactly a year and one day before Bierdz returned to Y&R!

Check out Luke and Mike filling in Bierdz about the Cane/Phillip babyswitch and our fearless leader asking Bierdz the bazillion dollar quesiton, If Y&R ever undid the baby switch storyline, would Bierdz return? So proud of my homies for being on top of the curve yet again!

Y&R's Thom Bierdz Talks With The Advocate

Talk about keeping it hush-hush! The Young and the Restless star, Thom Bierdz (Langley) reveals to Michael Fairman for how, the show was able to pull the old fast on fans, without Bierdz's return being leaked to the press:

The stunning revelation on this past Friday’s cliffhanger took everybody by surprise! It was kept tightly covered. I had heard you had just come to the studio a month ago and just taped the one scene.

Thom Bierdz: Yeah, that’s right. We had decided to do this several months ago, and it was so under wraps. I was told not to tell anybody.

Did you not tell anybody?

I told some friends and some gallery owners that sell my paintings, but I did not tell anybody in the industry, and I did not tell anyone so that it could leak to magazines. A couple of weeks ago I was snuck into the studio, and we filmed several episodes and I snuck out.


Bierdz also discussed what made him return to his old stomping ground and what is in store for viewers: READ MORE

Grading Cane and Lily's Wedding on The Young and the Restless

Cane and Lily's wedding on The Young and the Restless was the biggest wedding Genoa City's seen since, well, Katherine and Murphy's wedding. Katherine and Murphy's wedding was the biggest wedding since, well, Billy and Chloe's wedding.

In all seriousness, I was actually impressed with today's wedding. Everyone knows I'm not a fan of the couple, but if I were I'm sure I'd be ecstatic. Christel Khalil looked amazing. Daniel Goddard looked dapper. Cane and Lily's vows were written and delivered in a manner that made the cynic in me believe them to be heart felt. I even felt a tad of sympathy for Lily, knowing she's going to find out eventually  that her husband is hiding something from her.

Today's wedding didn't have a cake fight or Jill Abbott strung up in a closet, but it did seem terribly appropriate for the couple in question. I'd give it a solid B.

What grade do you give Cane and Lily's wedding?
