Dear Soaps,
Give us your insight on the Young and the Restless storyline involving Mac not wanting her mother to know where she is? I've heard and read rumors that her stepfather is the one she is scared of. What's your take on this? — Melissa

Dear Melissa,
There's been some indication that Mac's stepdad is indeed the one she's trying to hide from, but in true Y&R fashion, the details are being released slowly. Some well-known soap actresses read for the part of Mac's mother, Amanda, last year, but the role was never cast. Sources say the search is back on. If the show casts an actress who can go to the mat with the likes of Jess Walton's Jill, viewers could be in for some powerhouse scenes. Stay tuned. (Michael J. Maloney)
