    Not so young, Kalle. Amelia Heinle has a 21-year-old son. She’s only 43, so…….

    Amelia will turn 44 in 2 days, she was born March 17, 1973 :) She has son named August, from her first marriage to Michael Weatherly. She was 22 when she got married, she was 23 when her son was born and she was 24 when they got divorced :(

    Top secret storyline? I can only hope that means it involves the return of either Sheila Carter or Drucilla Winters…

    SHEILA PLEASE!!!!!

    Addison replied

    No thank you to Shelia!!! She’s had more returns than Macy’s.

    Devoted Fan replied

    Didn’t Sheila most recently have plastic surgery to look like Michelle Stafford? lol. Phyllis?

    Verlene replied

    No! No more Shelia. Anyway, I thought they killed her off.

    Claudio replied

    Terrific news,. Alan yes I agree with you time to bring back Sheila Carter, Drucilla Winters and Nina Webster. That would make my day.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    I agree, Claudio. But, how will they manage to bring Sheila back?
    I can understand bringing back Drucilla and make it plausible and credible. She went over that infamous cliff ( I wonder if it is the same fatalistic cliff from which Hilary toppled? LOL), buther body was never retrieved.
    I would love having Nina back, with both her sons, my friend!!!! If only…..

    Celia replied

    Something very curious, Claudio….I was watching a rerun of ‘Diagnosis Murder’ and coincidentally “Sheila”/Kimberlin was the guest-star, interacting with ‘ Drucilla’/Victoria.
    I had almost forgotten what incredible talents they both are!!!!

    Joel replied

    That would be a dream come true!

    Reply

    Nikki replied

    Sheila died a few times in Y & R and again in Bold & Beautiful. Drucilla would probably have to be a recast as the one who played her is suing Y & R.

    James R. Poissa to replied

    This better mean that Sheila is coming back. For one thing, I still think her supposed demise was horse picket since she and Lauren would have had the catfight to end all catfights. Getting shot came across as lame. Let’s not forget Daisy got out of the institution because her “mother” got her out. That told me back then Sheila is still around. Maria Arena Bell was going to bring Kimberlin Brown back but she got fired before that story could be told so when Jill Darren Phelps came on, she scrapped Maria’s stories. It’s time we got closure to the Sheila/Lauren story the right way.

    Addison replied

    I do NOT want Shelia back.

    Timmm replied

    Sheila would have to be a recast to since she ended up on the wrong side of Hollywood’d “Wall!”

    Addison replied

    Timm, I do not want Shelia back period, it has nothing to do with the actress who plays her but more to do with boring redundancy. I was not a Shelia fan and this feeling of mine started long before her RNC appearance.

    Rhonda replied

    NO, to Sheila! She has out lived all of her nine lives. I never enjoyed her.
    One of the things I most hated about this character is that Lauren seemed to have no story if Sheila was not tormenting her.
    Lauren has made a glorious come back and she’s done it all on her own and it has nothing to do with Shelia or with a man.
    In the spirit of the late and great Mary Tyler Moore, I will say that “she just might make it after all.”

    Nice looking man! Is he for Phyllis or Sharon?

    Can they re-cast Chance next? Genoa City should have a living Phillip Chancellor, and another guy , a touch younger than Scotty will be. Chance could be paired with Hillary to annoy Jill & Devon, or Chloe, Abby, Summer, Chelsea, or Mariah.

    Reply

    Nikki replied

    I agree he is a good looking guy but I think he should get his hair trimmed a bit. I think the guy who plays Victoria’s son Reed is good looking as well but I guess the longer hair is in style. I would just like to see a little more of the face. JMO

    Reply

    Violet Lemm replied

    At least Reed is the right age, but this guy doesn’t look any younger than Lauren.’ Couldn’t find his age anywhere, his best kept secret.

    Soapluv2010 replied

    Phyllis and Sharon have daughters old enough for him. Maybe Abby, Summer, Hillary, Lily, Chelsea or, Mariah.

    Reply

    Nikki replied

    No please it looks like Summer may be on a vacation or busy with her other show. Please let her stay there.

    ALEXA replied

    Please do not even whisper the dreaded name of “summer” because I never want to see her again in GC… Scott looks like he is a tad older than Billy, Daniel and Kevin so he is probably age appropriate for Lauren who was a young first time mother… Lauren is only a tad older than Phyllis… I would love to see Scott with Mariiah A at least for a while!

    Verlene replied

    I agree, He looks as old as Lauren and I voul not find his age. Please let Summer stay whereever she is. I would like to ser Frucilla come back and jookup with Neil. Neil needs a storyline.

    great to see some old characters coming back to life and the family tress getting there leaves back,
    ive hated how y and r over the years has forgotton so much hystory,,
    would love philip to return to the show and have the gay storyline written well and informative ,,,they past regimes really played and ruined storyline hystory , it would be great tohave the new team flush this character out,,,,maybe philip and scotty the next super couple,,,just saying

    Jimmy replied

    Phillip and Scotty are related; Phillip is Jill’s son and Scotty is Jill’s nephew, so they’re cousins. They can’t be paired romantically

    Reply

    randy replied

    yes but apparently they are un doing jill being a fenmore

    Liza replied

    They should write that story then, because watching the connection be ignored on screen is frustrating in this Fenmore story. The last story was that Jill owns 50% of Fenmores and is Lauren’s sister. Noe Lauren’s in this huge crisis and not speaking to, or mentioning, Jill at all. How stupid.

    Addison replied

    Has anyone else noticed that for the last year or so Victoria has been picking up the same stuffed animals in her living room?
    Toddlers do not play with stuffed animals, they sleep with them.
    What she should be picking up are Leggos, dolls, games, etc….

    Addison replied

    It is great, Feeling Randy, however, there is an influx of male characters and not enough female characters.
    GC is turning into Alaska as far as the male/female ratio is concerned.

    Wow good news who was is father and I just cant recall

    Reply

    Alan replied

    His father was Scott Grainger, Cricket’s half-brother. After the whole baby switch, Scott was diagnosed with a terminal illness but before he died he revealed to Lauren that he’d known Sheila Carter hadn’t died in the farmhouse fire and begged Lauren to give Sheila a second chance and move on with her own life.

    Nice. Always like seeing returns with ties to legacy characters. After being banished by Chuck Pratt, it’s great to see Lauren being featured again. I’m enjoying her business story and her mixing it up with Phyllis, Jack, and Gloria.

    Okay good but where are the Chancelors? THAT along with the Newmans and Abbotts are the heartbeat. Now, I love Michael and Lauren but we need the core back. Jeanne died but the others are still floating out there. Bring back the original Tucker, start a love triangle between him, Jill and Colin. Oh, and have Tucker put Devon over his knee and whoop his azz!

    Reply

    Jimmy replied

    I agree, I think Tucker should be recast and brought back. I would also like to see Brock back in town, and maybe Michael E. Knight can return to the show and play him. That would be a real treat.

    It would also be nice to see Chance, Mac, Daniel and Heather back. The 20-30 age group needs to be buffed up. I wouldn’t mind seeing Hilary kick the can, she’s hard to tolerate, and Devon needs to be saved from what’s been done to his character.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    I know that Beau Kazer( Brock) died, Jimmy. But, I’m not sure if Brock, the character died, as well. Did he? I think he did because I remember Mac being heartbroken. I was so young, I may be wrong.
    But, I would love to have him and his daughter back. However, I will only welcome the original Mac, Ashley Bashioum.

    Addison replied

    Erika Slezak should come back as Katherine’s long lost younger sister….or sister-in-law. She could perhaps play Phil Chancellor’s long lost younger sister coming to town to claim to what she thinks is rightfully hers. I would love to see her battle Jill and Ester in the Chancellor mansion.

    Ghlover replied

    From your keyboard to Sally’s ear PLEASE!

    Celia replied

    You got it, Timmmy. To me, Mac will always be the rightful heiress.
    Catherine must be rolling in her grave, non-stop, knowing that her billions are being wasted on this weakling, Devon.
    Never trust a femme fatale with your money…. My father’s philosophy, that is. LOL.
    That’s exactly what Devon did. “Divan” is something on which we sit. When I see Devon, I automatically think of a sofa.

    How old is Scott?

    I didn’t watch when the character was previously on.

    Reply

    Jimmy replied

    Considering they SORAS’d the character, Scotty would be in about the same age group of Chloe/Kevin/Mariah/Devon/Hilary.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    I don’t think that Chloe and Kevin are in the same age group as Mariah, Devon and Hilary, Jimmy. I know Mariah is only in her mid-twenies, or so.
    Chloe and Kevin are hitting 40.
    Scotty is supposedly 33—-
    Sometimes the chronological order of the characters’ ages makes no sense. It’s a soap!!!!

    Celia replied

    Sorry. I do believe I misspoke. Scotty was born in 1991. But, as I said, age becomes irrelevant in soaps.

    Jeffy&r replied

    Found out Daniel Hall was at Staples High School (class 1997). So he may have been born in either 1978 or 1979 (38 to 39 years old).

  15. Iakovos says:

    To be honest, I forgot Lauren had this son!!! See what all the crazy years have done to our Genoa City families. So mixed up and scattered! I like that Lauren’s place in town is more secure and focused. Miss Bregman has been a treat to watch as Lauren (even when the plot lines do her no favors) for many years. And this character has an aunt in Christine Williams. Maybe we can see some friendships grow among Scott, Noah, and other young guns. Also, I wonder if this the focus on Fenmore will lead to correction of the wrongheaded plot that made Lauren and Jill sisters.

    Y&R is making some positive moves and I find myself watching more and watching more thoughtfully.

    Wow, this casting was a bit of a surprise. I had no idea that the show was even considering bringing Lauren’s son back after 11 years.

  17. SZima says:

    Is this for a long term role?
    If not, who cares who his “love interest” will be?
    Since I wasn’t watching when this character was around before, I don’t know if I am interested in him or not!
    This actor does look a little old to be Lauren’s son.

    This is Awesome News! I’m LOVING Y&R with the new writing regime. The respect to the shows history is amazing. Bringing this character back to the canvas will open so many opportunities. I wish they would consider bringing the character of “Ronan” (Jeff Branson) back for “Phyllis” (Gina Tognoni). Just a thought.

    Hi, Mark,
    I haven’t watched for much more than you have, Mark. Half my life, actually, LOL.
    But, from what I heard, Lauren was a naughty girl…
    I know she was married to Paul Williams? She also married Scott’s father twice and now Michael. There may have been other marriages, but my grandmother does not believe so, albeit she has had a trillion and a half affairs, ( not my grandmother; Lauren). LOL.

    Those are her only kids. Lauren was a big ho. Scott…Paul…Danny….Jack…Brad…Eric Forrester…I know I am missing at least one.

    Jenny replied

    Then there were those twins….Rush and Johnny….played by Anthony Addabbo who recently passed away. Then there was that psycho Shawn…cant remember if Lauren actuslly spresd for him. And her bartender boink Carmine. Wow Lauren…..she needs to settle her kettle!!

  25. Nikki says:

    When they brought Daniel back a few months ago I loved seeing him with Mariah. I was hoping he’d stick around. Being Kevin’s best friend I think it would have been so interesting to see Kevin’s reaction. As for Scott I hope he’s paired with Mariah. She really needs a relationship.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Yes, Nikki. I liked Mariah and Daniel together, as well.
    This guy is really good-looking. Who will be his love interest? It’s not as if there’s that much of a choice. LOL.

    Now, more intersestingly is the return of Dylan. I was under the impression, this would have been it…..but, here he is.
    So, he will leave incognito….get plastic surgery to erase any trace of Dylan/Derek and return when the time is right ( that is, if this character will still be visible). Will Sharon go with him?

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Viable, not visible.

    Huh? What possibilities. From where I’m standing, you only give one possibility. Make Reed gay. Sure it’s possible, but I’m with Jenny: why?

    Never cared for Daniel BUT him and Mariah hit it off and I was hoping he would reconsider and stay!

    Please, Sally, let this be an LGBT story line revolving around Scott. I had so hoped when Reed was brought back that he was going to be gay. What is Y&R’s hangup with this? It is 2017, and your gay fans are waiting to see Genoa City reflect the real world. If anyone can write a poignant, powerhouse gay story, it’s Sally.

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    Y&R is #1. They dont have to appease fans, they have to appease sponsors. Not saying its right, just reporting how the network feels. They are still afraid of losing the grandmas and highly religious folks.

    Reply

    Ghlover replied

    A well done coming out story for Reed isnstill very possible. Well done, it could reach all different people. Religious parents have gay children too you know. They might like to see how Victoria would handle this. Would she be supportive? Would she be angry at her son ? At herself, for her reaction? Would Billy be able to bring them together? How would Victor react? You see… so many possible things

    Jenny replied

    Reed was just seen making out with a blonde girl! Quit trying to make a straight 15 year old gay!! Go to OutTV or cable or internet porn for that. And no I am not homophobic. Let us not forget that Adam did some pitching back in the day! Make Aram gay and really rock the show!

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Oh, Jenny…..I am not homophobic either……I have talked about Adam pretending to be gay, ad nauseam. It was a bust.
    Besides, I don’t think Y&R wants to go there, again. They tried with Rafe, remember? I really liked that character. But, the storyline fizzled and he disappeared.

    Timmm replied

    I DONT care what anyone chooses to do with their love life BUT come on, the kid is fifteen Chad! SOME guys who watch Y&R watch it for the wrong reason! Justin Hartley is super hot BUT he is not gay, watch the damn show for the character and the story line!
