The Young and the Restless Kristoff St. John (Neil) and his former on-screen soap opera iconic flame, Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla) appeared on Thursday morning on Fox’s Good Day LA promoting their upcoming TV movie, A Baby For Christmas which bows on UP TV this Sunday night at 7:00PMET/PT. When talking with Good Day LA co-host Steve Edwards, the duo related how Victoria, (who is one of the executive producer of the new TV movie) asked Kristoff to join the cast, and come onboard and also server as of the executive producers on the project.
They discuss their now 25-year partnership which viewers have seen on and off on The Young and the Restless and various projects (this being their second TV film together). St. John expressed on Victoria’s Drucilla being MIA on the number one soap opera and collaborating with her: “Man, I’ve been missing her on the show.”
Rowell then relates that A Baby for Christmas is a story with meaning, is multi-generational, and ties in foster care which Victoria has continued to be an advocate for over many years.
In a couple awkward moments while discussing ugly Christmas sweaters, Kristoff makes an off-the-cuff remark harkening back to the sweaters worn by Bill Cosby on his comedy series, to which Rowell relays she worked with Cosby and began to intimate her experience was not a negative one, but the deft Victoria was quickly able to steer the interview back to the subject at hand – their TV movie.
Later, Steve Edwards who was unaware that Kristoff’s beloved son, Julian died last year after his battle with mental illness in a mental health care facility, learns the harrowing information during their chat. St. John then takes the opportunity to mention his lawsuit against the facility, and touchingly talks about the death of his son, and the support he received from family and friends.
