All eyes this week are on the juggernaut that is The Young and the Restless as they are heavily promoting, and bringing viewers major story for their 11,000th episode scheduled to air this Thursday, September 1st on CBS.
This morning, series stars Jason Thompson (Billy) and Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) sat down with CBS2 Los Angeles news anchors Sharon Tay and Rick Garcia to talk all things Billy and Phyllis, and if their affair will finally be out in the open, as well as being part of the daytime drama as it celebrates their latest milestone.
Gina said the 11,000 episode really helps kick off the fall stories on Y&R, and one story will be the reveal of Phyllis and Billy’s hot and heavy affair behind Billy’s brother back. That would be none other than Jack Abbott. (Peter Bergman) Not to mention Phyllis is married to Jack and had been cheating on him with his brother!
When discussing the fan reaction to if Phyllis should wind up in the end with Jack or Billy … the duo reporst it seems 50/50 split down the middle with the viewing audience as to who they are rooting for.
Thompson, also talked coming on to the show after a wildly successful run on General Hospital and stepping into the shoes of one of the pivotal characters in Genoa City. While Gina’s last name of “Tognoni” was also bantered about, and the two-time Daytime Emmy winner revealed that she even considered trying to go by an an easier-to- say-last-name, but in the end rejected it for the real deal.
