Poor Lauren can’t catch a break on The Young and the Restless. In an interview with TV Guide Magazine, Tracey Bregman talks about Carmine (Marco Dapper) kidnapping her character and teases a connection to her infamous foe Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown).
TV Guide Magazine: A little something happens in the July 29 episode that suggests the Y&R writers may be turning Carmine into another Sheila.
Bregman: The Sheila fans are certainly hoping there's a connection!
TV Guide Magazine: Meaning what, that they think he secretly is Sheila?
Bregman: Hey, it's happened! This is Y&R! [Laughs] Everybody else has played her! You know, it's funny about the fans. They liked the flirting between Lauren and Carmine but the second it crossed the line into an actual affair, it was really hard for them to take. They had such an emotional investment in Michael and Lauren being the only happy couple in Genoa City...but when our characters were the happiest, we were mostly off-screen.
