Looks like Genoa City is going a bit Hollywood.  According to Entertainment Weekly, Big Brother and The Talk host, Julie Chen will be seen in an upcoming episode of the CBS Daytime sudser, The Young and the Restless.  Julie is taping her scenes today.

Chen, who is part of a series already on the network’s afternoon programming block, is taking a page from her ‘Talk’ co-host Sheryl Underwood and appearing on the soaps.

In story, when Hilary (Mishael Morgan) goes to Hollywood for her GC Buzz news magazine show she wants to get her ‘idol’ Julie Chen on her show. Apparently, Hilary will stop at nothing to have this happen!

Be on the lookout for Y&R characters to appear in these upcoming Hollywood-based episodes starting on Monday, May 15th with Chen making her appearance on May 17th.

So, intrigued to see Chen on Y&R in scenes with GC’s Hilary? Comment below!

    It’s bad enough B&B has Sheryl on, now this?


    NIK replied

    Tru Dat!


    Rhonda replied

    They do?
    I did not know that.
    I agree, this is not necessary and does nothing to enhance the entertainment value.

    Go Julie go! As long as that god awful annoying Underwood lady stays off the show!


    dmr replied

    No kidding. “The Talk” hosts are really annoying and obnoxious.


  3. Alan says:

    Not a big fan of the whole GC BUZZ storyline but Julie Chen is awesome.


  4. Paul says:

    I just don’t get Y&R. This is 2017 and this story is definitely from 2001!!

    If anything, Hilary should have always been arguing that the show should have been on the internet! What local tv gossip show could get enough ratings that some stupid lying gold digger would give up $250,000,000.00 divorce settlement for it?!

    This is why I’m so tired of the show. No real imagination.

    Victors next story is his biography written by the new town gossip, Scotty, fresh from his desert cage?! If the show truly wants to rewrite Victor’s story (we all know that so much of Victor’s “bad” will be rewritten with a focus on “Jack deserved it”.

    What better way to introduce an old character that would beautifully fit into GC today then Leanna Love! She wrote the first biography which actually covered Victors early story. The rest we all know. Leanna could have come back as a book publisher who secretly buys the rights to the book from Scotty.

    She would add dimension to Nikki. Add a spark to Victor. A nemesis to both Phyllis and to Gloria. Bug Ashley. It would be perfect! Then at the launch of Victors book, have it revealed that she had a love child with Victor and then introduce yet another Newman but this one as vindictive as Adam and ruthless as Adam.

    Leanna could be a super successful and wealthy woman so we could see her stand ground against anyone on the show as well as give her son $$$$ to not need daddy’s!

    Alas, Sally and the crew aren’t thinking big. They are just thinking about tomorrow.


    Timmm replied

    I agree, GC Buzz is horrible! Get Mariah away from that whole scene! Give Sally time with the book. Scott will find himself tangled in Victor’s web and then Leanna will arrive, you’ll see!


    Ron replied

    I shall stay mum about the guest appearance from The Talk, but I AGREE with you about having Leanna Love back on the show! She was such a complex character and would b a nemesis to so many others. Love to see her written back in. Same goes for Tricia (Ryan’s ex.) Would love to see her waltz back into town. Time for someone to give Victoria some maddening grief. I know there’s been a slew of crazies, but, heck, why not bring them all back at once? There’s a thought.


    Rhonda replied

    I agree with all of you. Yes, Timm, Mariah is too cool for the GC Buzz. The Mariah I know and love would want nothing to do with that show.
    Paul and Ron, love your ideas about Leona Love.

  5. NIK says:

    I guess when your spouse is a high ranking person @ CBS you can get on any show on the network. Her voice is so monotone that it sounds like chalk on a blackboard.


    James replied

    The Talk regularly have CBS Daytime stars as guests so it makes sense for Y&R to do the same to her and any of her co-hosts.


    jaybird369 replied

    NIK…the second sentence in your post is so funny…LOL!!!!! AND SO TRUE!!!!! Oh…and BTW, to me, that Julie Chen woman is not as innocent-looking as she looks. Bottom Line Here: I wouldn’t trust her (or whatever). Nope.

    Have a good one, NIK.


    Rhonda replied

    Nik is right about her voice. It is grating!
    I have noticed certain CNN anchor women talk through their nose and sound like they have marbles in their mouths.
    When did broadcasting schools stop teaching voice, speech and elocution?

    Karen replied

    I agree. Keep hosting BB and The Talk that’s enough.


  6. Barb says:

    Not intrigued to see Hillary with the road kill up the street, let alone someone human..


  7. Barbara from Atlanta says:

    Ugh. I’ve never cared for Chen. I’ve spent over five years avoiding “The Talk” on principle: I won’t watch the show that is “partially” responsible for the demise of “As the World Turns”. (Partial as I want to make sure that ATWT producer Chris Goutman and head writer Jean Passanante get their equitable share of the credit for pushing ATWT into a grave). Now, Chen is surfacing on “The Young and the Restless”??? I may skip those episodes.


  8. SZima says:

    Oh gawd, another awful stunt casting. Does Julie just whisper in hubby’s ear that she wants a show (The Talk) or guest star on a show (Y&R) and he grants her wish? Must be nice!


  9. Janet says:

    Hey, I simply love Cheryl Underwood!! She is so real in all issues. She gave $Bill a wonderful way to go. She is quick witted and so funny……again, I would miss her on the Talk and would like to see her more often on Bold and Beautiful.


  10. Jean schirf says:

    I love the talk, all the ladies & will love to see them all on Y&R OR B&B. Love both shows. .. you ladies get on what ever you can it’s magnificent to see you on daytime.


  11. su0000 says:

    Makes little difference to me..
    I have never heard of nor seen this Chen person.
    I wouldn’t have even noticed/known…. lol


  12. Mary SF says:

    This is shameless cross promotion during sweeps month, which CBS does all the time. Y&R audiences will hear all about the Talk, and on the Talk they will promote Chen’s appearance on Y&R– win, win in CBS ‘s eye (s) — I can’t imagine her appearance will be for more than a scene or two at most, so it is what it is– story wise it makes more sense than some stunt casting-in the past- I can totally understand why Hilary would like to meet Julie Chen– they have a lot in common– both got their talk show gig from super rich husbands – ouch–


  13. Carol says:

    I’ll be skipping this episode — nothing original here.


    Rhonda replied

    Don’t skip–just fast forward through her scenes. It will be brief I am sure.
    Besides, Chloe is about to be found out!


  14. Ashleigh says:

    Ughhhhhh. I completely agree!!!


  15. janet says:

    Chen on Y R. Would just make SURE I never watch. Julie chen and her sap husband, they made sure I wouldn’t watch the Talk no matter what. Never have never will. They out this garbage on in place of my favorite show ever. As the world turns. See her face the remote comes out and that’s the end of it. No soaps on that channel even when they have TR on.
