Articles for The Young and the Restless Season 37

Another actor on the long-running daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless has reportedly walked off the set during filming.  The issue doesn‘t revolve around money though, because this time it‘s about sex.  Chris Engen, who plays the "straight" Adam Newman on the show, refused to kiss co-star Yani Gellman in a scene.  Gellman plays the only out gay character on the show, Rafe Torres. Since Engen was unhappy with the "dark direction" that his character is headed for, he stormed away while working on the show.  He was far from pleased about the recent developments that Adam has undergone, particularly kissing another man.  He may still be under contract with the soap, but they‘ve already found a replacement for him: Veronica Mars‘ Michael Muhney. Read more »

Sharon Newman is currently one of the core characters of The Young and the Restless. She‘s been a very busy woman these days ---she has a baby on the way though it is unknown whether the father of her baby is ex-husband Nicholas Newman, present husband Jack Abbott, or Jack‘s brother Billy Abbott.  According to Sharon‘s portrayer, Sharon Case, who won a Daytime Emmy for her Young and the Restless role in 1999, Jack being the father of her baby seems like the most sensible assumption. After all, Jack is still Sharon‘s husband and has already made a magnanimous offer to raise her unborn baby.  Read more »
