Hey guys!, I was curious to see if anyone knew any bits of information about Y&R stars who really dont get along that well in real life. I know there have been the obvious like Peter Bergman and Eric Braeden, and Victoria Rowell not getting along with a few people . I just wanted to see if anyone else heard stories about certain cast mates not getting along, or spectulations that they don't. Like I know they have a story together now, but I for some reason think that Jess Walton and Tracey Bregman dont get on that well, dont know why, but i have seen them do interviews together, and they just seem kind of distant and stuff.

I say let it stay - as long as everything is backed up and it doesn't become a pissing war.

Taking the question of this thread at face value and throwing in a big "ALLEGEDLY" to cover my ass...

Michelle Stafford + Peter Bergman vs. Victoria Rowell
Christel Khalil vs. Victoria Rowell
Peter Bergman vs. Eric Braeden
Terry Lester vs. Lauralee Bell (+ by extension William J. Bell)
Melody Thomas Scott vs. Eric Braeden (well... more like they "aren't close")
Eileen Davidson vs. Judith Chapman

Something I'm wondering about: Sharon Case and Joshua Morrow.

And I counter what DaytimeFan said. I heard Jess Walton was/is a total sweetheart on both the sets of Capitol and Y&R.

During LML's tenure, Eileen Davidson made some comment about how the character of Gloria always got the last word, implying that the Abbotts were being "brought down" in order to pimp Gloria. Well, LML looooooved Gloria, and a few weeks later, Ashley was being written off the show.

By contrast, JC singled out Davidson as an example of how "together" Y&R was as a soap, how people knew their stuff. However, the way she talked about it was a little off. She talked about how ED didn't need hours of rehearsal, that she could just chill in the make-up chair reading Vogue. I read that particular comment and thought "huh?" It made it sound like ED didn't really mix with her, wasn't all that committed, and preferred reading fashion mags and hanging with the crew. Of course, both Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman have talked about how highly they rate ED both personally and professionally so... maybe it's just Chapman? EB especially adores her.

Funny how I don't hear Davidson saying that now that the family has been demolished to pimp Billy and the Newmans.

What can I say? :lol: I don't live in the woman's head. Maybe it is just a paycheck at this point. I'm just reporting what I read back in the day -- her interview talking about how the Abbotts were made to look unfavorable re: Gloria. A few weeks' later, Y&R announces that they have let ED go (I believe LML was both HW and EP by that point). And then ED gave an exit interview to SOD and announced she was bringing Ashley to B&B.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to insult you, I was mostly talking about her comments.

I can see them writing her out for her criticism of Gloria but really I think Ashley has been a dead end character for years, and I agreed with LML's decision to write her out. Her stories since her return just reinforce that for me.

On who does and doesn't get along, it's interesting to me that Brenda Dickson still seems to be close to Jeanne Cooper, since Cooper seems very no-nonsense. Perhaps she sees that person Brenda was a long time ago before she started having problems.

I'd say that has way more to do with Eileen hating Lethal for busting up her marriage with Jon Lindstrom(ALLEGEDLY) than Judith Chapman.

I wasn't insulted. I just do not know how to explain the discrepency!

Ashley has always been one of my favourite characters -- I think the first time I ever watched Y&R, she was in the scene (with Terry Lester)! That's how connected she is to Y&R in my mind. But I can see that the sperm-stealing damn near ruined the character. Ashley was actually a lot stronger and more with it in the 1980s than her nervous breakdown back then would suggest. Too bad the late 90s and 00s were spent continually revisiting that Victor/breakdown dynamic.

I was glad when B&B took her on and returned her to the Ash I remembered from back in the day. I thought Y&R might go the route of an Adam-Ashley affair when Chris Engen was in the role but, as we know now, that was far from the case. Sigh.

Some would argue that MTS has also played a dead-end character for a while but, see, I love both Nikki and Ashley and couldn't really bear the show without either of them.

As for Brenda Dickson and Jeanne Cooper, I think JC must know the real Brenda, underneath the fame, gold lamé, affected accents, marriages and (alleged!) mental breaks. Brenda essentially grew up on Y&R in the 1970s. I could totally see JC mentoring her as they both started getting SLs together. Brenda was such a fresh, soulful, unspoiled presence on Y&R in the 70s -- from what I've seen.

It's kind of a cool friendship! And it has not stopped JC from being close with Jess Walton, either.

LOL. I have nothing to add. It was something I heard second hand from somewhere that Eileen was fired because "the producer" had been sleeping with her husband or ex-husband or something like that. Well put two-and-two together(coupled with the fact that Jon Lindstrom had worked with Lethal on Port Charles) and that was my assumption.
