Some reports have surfaced, and fans have been reacting over the last 24 hours or so, to a couple of seemingly separate pieces of Intel regarding The Young and the Restless, but could they be related?
First, in the current issue of Soap Opera Uncensored, Nelson Branco reports “Rumour has it a veteran character will learn he has cancer. Whispers around set suggest Y&R may kill off the character and free up a longtime coupling.”
Then on yesterday’s episode of the CBS soap opera, after Michael (Christian LeBlanc) had trouble in the sex department in the bedroom with Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman), they sit down for lunch at the GCAC and have a conversation where Lauren suggests that Michael has been tired lately and maybe he should consider getting a doctor to check him out … and to go see Dr. Barton Shelby (Terrell Tilford)!
Could it be Michael who may come down with a serious health problem? Would the series even consider killing off LeBlanc, this three-time Daytime Emmy award winning actor, who has been one of the greatest actors in the genre? Or, could it be that the show is going to give him a great emotional storyline to play?
Share your thoughts below: Do you think something is wrong with Michael? Who could the rumor report be talking about other than Michael as a veteran character … if this should prove to be true?
