Former The Young and the Restless Star Thom Bierdz Sings to Jill Farren Phelps Jamey Giddens September 27, 2012 The Young and The Restless 15 Comments What is it about The Young and the Restless that inspires so much "creativity" amongst its alums, when trying to get back on the show? Former Y&R star Thom Bierdz has posted a plea to new showrunner Jill Farren Phelps.

I have one thing to say, and it's this. Thanks, Appelridge for the tip! Take a peek at below.
