Longtime fans of CBS' The Young and the Restless remember when Lauralee Bell's character Christine Blair — aka Cricket — was the abstinence-promoting saint of Genoa City. But since she left home to become a hotshot Beltway lawyer, Cricket has been scandalously nutty in her occasional returns to town, drunkenly making out with Nick (Joshua Morrow) and hitting the sack with her ex-husband Danny (Michael Damian). Now this! On Nov. 16, Cricket shares a kiss with her other ex-hubby Paul (Doug Davidson), who is currently in love with her best friend Nina (Tricia Cast). What the hell is our girl thinking? TV Guide Magazine spoke with Bell about this jaw-dropper development and what it's like to remain at Y&R after her sister-in-law, Maria Bell, was ousted as exec producer.
Don't mess with Summer Newman. On Monday, Nov. 5, CBS' The Young and the Restless kicks off a cyberbully story featuring the gorgeous but troubled teen played by Hunter King.

The CBS-Sony soap The Young and the Restless owed Josh Griffith a huge debt of gratitude when he did double duty as exec producer and head writer during the 2007-2008 Writers Guild strike. Not only did the three-time Emmy winning Griffith keep Y&R afloat during that treacherous time, he improved the show drastically. But no good deed goes unpunished in Soapland! When the strike was over, Griffith was pushed out. Now he's back as head writer, working with new exec producer Jill Farren Phelps to get this once-mighty serial back in shape after the devastating reign of Maria Bell.
