The Young and the Restless Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren) is back in a scenario she is all to0 familiar with and has played one too many times! Lauren is kidnapped yet again by another psycho stalker and this time it’s in hunky Carmine played by Marco Dapper! But on the Monday, July 29th episode of the CBS soap, Lauren’s hubby, Michael (Christian LeBlanc) comes to the rescue, but the results are not what they may seem, and there are some twist and turns yet to come!
In a new interview with TV Guide, Tracey Bregman offers up some candid comments on what may be happening next and her life on a soap being duct-taped … often! Here are a few excerpts below!
Tracey on Lauren and getting involved with stalkers: ” Every Y&R writer finds a way to somehow bind me in duct tape. But this one I never saw coming. Obviously Carmine was obsessed with Lauren. But he started out such a sweet, gentle soul. She never imagined he’d become psychotic and physically dangerous. Neither did I!”
Tracey on Carmine going the way of uber-psycho Sheila Carter: “The Sheila fans are certainly hoping there’s a connection!”
Tracey on fans not seeing Michael and Lauren broken-up: “They liked the flirting between Lauren and Carmine but the second it crossed the line into an actual affair, it was really hard for them to take. They had such an emotional investment in Michael and Lauren being the only happy couple in Genoa City…but when our characters were the happiest, we were mostly off-screen.”
What do you think of Y&R turning Carmine obsessed with Lauren? What do you think will happen to Lauren and Michael at the hands of Carmine moving forward? Let us know!
