Yesterday, Criminal Minds and Daytime Emmy winner star Shemar Moore was at the set of The Young and the Restless taping scenes his previously announced two-day appearance and guest star return as Malcolm Winters on the number one soap opera, which will air on September 10th and 11th!

Moore took to his Instagram¬† account and posted this message with a picture of himself stating: “Just finished shooting THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.. 2 episodes in one day.. REALLY GREAT to work with my OLD FRIENDS again!! 10 years later it felt like just yesterday once we started performing.. It’s short n sweet n dramatic of course.. HOPE YOU Y&R FANS ENJOY IT.. Airing Sept 10 and 11 on CBS… I felt really good to be welcomed home… Where MY CAREER BEGAN 20 YEARS AGO!!!”

And today had a first look photo from the shooting day featuring Moore and on-screen brother Kristoff St. John (Neil) where they also revealed that during their scenes, “Malcolm and Neil discuss Drucilla, the popular character played by Victoria Rowell. (Drucilla was married to Neil but slept with Malcolm). Sadly, the actress won’t be there to join in on the fun.”

Shemar added:¬† “I ran into her (Rowell) a couple weeks ago.¬† I told her I’m sorry we won’t be all together. That would be pretty great, but as far as I know, Dru has passed away.”

So, getting more interested in the return of Malcolm Winters? What do you think about the fact Neil and Malcolm will chat about Dru? Comment below!

    Blah. Who cares. Sigh. At least it’s the real Malcolm. Not like it matters with only two episodes though. And as far as I’m concerned, VR has verbally burned too many bridges to come back, which stinks because the fans are the ones who lose.

    C’mon Y & R, forgive, forget, bring Dru back as a ghost full of mischief and mayhem…and pathos and poignancy…

    Maybe the writers are just playin and Dru will return…lol

    Please Y&R forget and forgive and give Victoria (Dru) a chance to write some of the episodes, I said and repeat at least “some”, you may find that you like it and that they will work wonders for the show. Please let us of color b able to see that Y&R is not what has been claimed. Many of us are very gifted, and gifted with more thab being able to run a ball, hit a ball, dance, sing, and yes ACT, we are also awesome and gifted writers, did not Angilou wrote beautiful and moving poetry as did Phillis Wheatley. Come please, give it a try. Nell and Dru are an awesome unit, the couple you have today just is not gathering fan welcome and embrace….

    They never forgot or forgave Brenda Dickson so I doubt they will ever forgive Rowell.

    Not to mention that Rowell keeps picking at the wound. Loved her as Dru, but she’s got issues that are hazardous to her career.


    jaybird369 replied

    MBmomof3…yes. I agree. Also…if you want to, think about this: More and more, I’m actually surprised that VR STILL has a career left at all. Over the years, she has burned SO MANY bridges. YIKES!!!!!

    It seems she is just not worth the trouble.

    They discuss Dru– I hope they mention Sophia too– since Neil slept with his brother’s fiancee or were they were married when he did, I forget. Anyway– still looking forward to appearance no matter how brief.

    What did Ms Rowell do or say ?


    davlestev1 replied

    The same things she’s continuing to do to this day instead of letting sleeping dogs lie. She claimed she was released from her contract after Bill Bell passed and Sony acquired the show along with CBS. She rants and raves about how Proctor and Gamble were racists(they were) as a company..she had an on going feud with Michelle Stafford who played Phyllis and more or less alluded to some nefarious goings on with Michelle and Melody Scott’s husband who was EP back then. She claims to want a return and in the next breathe and blog she’s tearing the Bosses of Y&R/CBS/SONY/P&G a new one. They certainly gave her a brutal death that Lily witnessed and the actress Christell Kalil was none too fond of her either. She had frequent rants and raves on set…and on and on…

    How great would it be to have Malcolm come visit more often? Shemar Moore works for another CBS show so I would imagine it wouldn’t be too hard to facilitate Malcolm appearing every now and then, like the way Beth Maitland pops up every now and then as Tracy.

    But what would really be amazing is if Victoria Rowell could return. I’ve missed Dru so much since she was “killed-off,” and since Sharon fell off the same cliff and came back alive, I’m sure they could find a way to write Dru back in.


  7. damien says:

    Dru?! she s been dead since the last time malcolm came back to town!
    whrs Liv?! Olivia s needed in town, to mix it up with neil and that hot new doc husband of leslie ‘s!!!
    speaking of leslie, missing her and especially Tyler!!!…


    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I dont see the point of bringing back Malcom just to talk about Dru being dead…unless Dru is alive and like Adam we will get to see her hand for months…maybe hands newman is somehow connected to the hands winters plot…lol


    Wayne replied

    Now that’s a good one, Newman hand for months

    Welcome home Melcomb. Y&R offer him another contract and bring Nell’s brother back home full time. Ir was good seeing them together and the scene where he got Nell to say he is afraid about being blind was touching and emotional and I personally can relate to each it, for in 2007 a stroke took the sight in my left eye and I now am faced with the possibility of losing the sight in my right from Type 2 Diabetes ( glaucoma/cataract…Thet are great together, would love to see more…..
