Lauralee Bell, Doug Davidson and Melody Thomas Scott
Honeymoon for three? On CBS's The Young and the Restless, hotshot attorney Christine (Lauralee Bell) has been in a tizzy since learning that her hubby Paul (Doug Davidson) and his pal Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) created a child decades ago when they were members of a hippie love cult. This bizarre development — news to everyone in Genoa City, including the parents — has really bonded Paul and Nikki, to the point where he now seems hesitant to go through with plans to have a baby with Christine. What's worse, that damn drama queen Nikki won't go away! On Aug. 8, she's so emotionally distraught she intrudes on Christine and Paul's long-delayed honeymoon. TV Guide Magazine went to lunch with the three stars to find out where this divine mess is headed.
Melody Thomas Scott and Meredith Baxter
Hmmm...wonder if she'll have any family ties? TV Guide Magazine can exclusively confirm that TV icon Meredith Baxter is heading to daytime's No. 1 soap, The Young and the Restless. The juicy gig will have her character, Maureen, kicking back a few cocktails — make that lots of cocktails — with troubled socialite Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).
Hide your husbands and your sons! Emmy winner Eileen Davidson is heading back to NBC's Days of Our Lives as maniacal mantrap Kristen DiMera and, as you can see in this exclusive preview clip, she's already roped in Dr. Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) — literally.
Shemar Moore is heading back to Genoa City.
The Criminal Minds star will return to The Young and the Restless in September for the first time since 2005, CBS announced this week.
Tricia Cast, Michael Fairman
Hard to believe but it's been nearly a year since The Young and the Restless said goodbye to Katherine Chancellor, the divinely salty doyenne played by the late Jeanne Cooper. On Aug. 26-27, the CBS soap will mark the one-year anniversary of Katherine's death with a remembrance ceremony in Chancellor Park that brings back actors Tricia Cast (Nina) and Michael Fairman (Murphy).
It's a recipe for disaster! Heartthrob Scott Elrod is heading to CBS's The Young and the Restless in the contract role of Joe Clark, the ex-husband of Julia Child wannabe Avery Clark (Jessica Collins). As fans know, the marriage went south when Avery began her affair with war vet Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton), but she has always felt guilty for betraying her husband and has privately hoped he's found happiness.
Not possible! It's been 20 years since Joshua Morrow joined CBS's The Young and the Restless as Nicholas Newman, the suddenly sprouted, wondrously hunky son of the nefarious Victor and his drama queen Nikki. "Man, this anniversary really makes me feel old but also very grateful," Morrow says. "This is the best job in the world and, second to my children, my proudest accomplishment. I hope to do it as long as CBS and Sony and the fans will have me. It's the ride of a lifetime." TV Guide Magazine sat down for a gab session with Morrow to go over his picks for the five most memorable, perfectly Nick-tastic scenes ever. Make sure to check out the clips!

Going up? Daytime's hottest and juiciest mess — the Hilary-Neil-Devon love triangle on CBS's The Young and the Restless — is about to take a turn for the worse (and by that we mean best!) thanks to a fateful elevator ride.
