Young and Restless
Was former Guiding Light superstar Cynthia Watros considered as a Phyllis recast on The Young and the Restless, before booking the role of grieving mom Kelly? The subject came up during a recent interview in the Dec. 16 issue of CBS Soaps In Depth. Here's what Watros said when the magazine asked about the rumors:
"That's a subject I can't really comment on, but it's interesting."
Noah Newman's (Robert Adamson) grandpa has despised Kyle Abbott's (Hartley Sawyer) dad for decades on The Young and the Restless — though Victor (Eric Braeden) always has had a hard on, I mean soft spot, for Kyle's ravishing Aunt Ashley (Eileen Davidson). On Monday's episode of Y&R, the strapping young lads are preparing to take their family feud into another generation!
Meanwhile, Jack (Peter Bergman) and Jill Abbott (Jess Walton) are scheming and fighting like wild cats again. Now if they would just jump one another's bones for old time's sake. Watch Monday's Y&R sneak peek after the jump!

No. 10: Berrenger's Department Store, Berrenger's
In 1985, NBC debuted Berrenger's, a splashy, primetime serial about a glamorous, New York City department store dynasty. The soap opera from Lynn Marie Latham and Bernard Lechowick was meant to be a competitor for ABC's Dynasty and CBS primetime sudsers Dallas, Falcon Crest and Knots Landing among others.
Unfortunately, suds lovers were only able to follow the antics of the Berrenger family, friends and foes for 13 short episodes. A pre-Generations Jonelle Allen and future Dallas and All My Children hunk Jack Scalia both appeared. Watch an NBC promo for the premiere of Berrenger's (at the 24 second mark) below!
