  1. Yes Victor was connected to Lorie from the start with him eventually asking her to marry him in 1982. I remember reading Jill and Eve shared a place together. Bell was playing around with characters left and right with the 1 hour expansion. I wonder what ever became of Pamela Peters (Peggy) ? She has no acting credits after 1990 and there is no trace of her on the internet.
  2. Thanks for the info. I guess Eve wanted a financially secure future for her and Cole.
  3. Thanks for that recap. I wonder what brought Peggy and Victor to cross paths ? I figured he never even met her prior to her showing up at his and Nikki's wedding in 1984. Peggy and Eve becoming chums is out of left field too.
  4. Stu/Liz/ Vanessa would have been awesome. Vanessa would have met her match going up against Katherine. I doubt Peggy got a send off. Bell just didn't know what to do with her and probably dropped her. That 1980-82 period was a mixed bag of stuff that left viewers scratching their heads. You mentioning Victor giving Peggy the bedroom eye could have opened up story for her. She could have taken a job as his personal girl Friday.
  5. No, Peggy was never tested with Andy or Kevin far as I know. I just wondered why Bell never tried that. Peggy may have been gone before Kevin's arrival. I don't know when she stopped appearing. She was on as far as late 1981, but I don't know if she made it into 1982. I think Chris insisted Nikki and Greg have their wedding reception in her fathers house in 1979 and Jill suggested to have the wedding there as well. Stu was concerned that it would make Liz uncomfortable since he was married to Jill at that point, but Liz thought it was a beautiful suggestion. Stu was also close to Greg and was OK with it. Peggy invited Nikki to stay with them in 1981 when she was on the outs with Greg and was stripping. Did Nikki stay there for a time or did that fall through ? It would be funny if they had done a scene where Stu, Liz, and Peggy a having breakfast with Stu reading the latest edition of The Chronicle and Nikki comes down in a baby doll nighty and sits at the table.
  6. Victor and Vanessa would be unreal to see together in a scene. I bet there was tension to the max there. Also reading synopsis, I take it Stuart thought Nikki was trash and didn't want her living in his house when Liz asked him because Nikki was having to strip to pay the bills.....LOL. There was also a scene where Peggy also wanted Nikki to move in. I looks like Bell would have tested Peggy with Andy or Kevin Bancroft.
  7. Victor and Peggy....WOW.....that is a little tidbit that got lost with time. Too bad nothing came of that. It does seem Bell never knew what to do with Peggy and just tossed her into storyline mixes to see what would happen. Another storyline that happened around that time was Jack Abbott sniffing around after Chris to break up her and Snapper and Chris not discouraging him.
  8. I think I read that after Greg and Nikki divorced, Peggy became interested in Greg.
  9. At one point there was a softcore type film with Marilyn Chambers on youtube that co-starred Winn. I wonder if that killed his career ? Roger Newman from GL was also in it.
  10. I know what you mean. He had several good songs, but most people only remember or want to hear Jessie's Girl repeatedly. There are two sides to every story, but I had never really heard anything bad about RS. Maybe JS was the jerk in the situation. Like the Kate Jackson/Cheryl Ladd friction on Charlie's Angels. Most of the cast of FH come off smarmy. This latest scandal with Lori Loughlin is like a train wreck.
  11. I saw a thing recently where John Stamos was asked about who was the biggest prick he had ever worked with and he said Rick Springfield on GH. He said "He wasn't the nicest to me"......LOL
  12. I saw an interview on youtube a long time ago with graphic artist Sandy DeVore. He did the Y&R credits along with tons of other shows like The Waltons, The Patridge Family etc...He said he retired from title making in 1988, which would explain Y&R changing from the charcoal/pencil sketches to live action shots that year. They retained his Y&R brush stroke logo that first appeared around 1984.
  13. Thanks for the 1970's episodes. I look forward to the 83/84 shows as well. I missed a lot during that time being in school, but watched during summers, vacations, holdays etc...
  14. In the first season of Knots Landing cliffhanger Bottom Of The Bottle she played a prostitute. Val talks to her when they start looking for Gary.
  15. Nikki's first husband Greg Foster is brought back and played by Greg Evigan. Greg now sings in dive bars and given up his law career. Charlene Tilton joins the cast of Y&R as Gina and opens up her old place. Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli join the cast as Lauren's long lost trouble making sisters (which would be more believable than Jill). Kristy McNichol joins the cast of B&B and is the new girlfriend of Karen Spencer (Joanna Johnson).
  16. Several actors actors played more than one character on Y&R. I read that Cynthia Eilbacher played a role on the show before she came back as April Stevens. Rod Arrants was on as Katherine's stable boy she slept with in the early 70's before he came back as Dr. Steven Lassiter in the 80's. Quinn Redeker played Nikki's father Nick Reed in 1979 before returning as Rex Sterling in the 80's. Grant Kramer who played psycho Shaun that buried Lauren alive in the 80's came back in a short term role in the 90's as a potential love interest for Ashley that quickly got scrapped. Kin Shriner appeared in a short term role in the 70's before landing GH in 1977. He returned years later as a fill in for Ted Shackelford and in the role of Harrison Bartlett. Shriner has always remained close to the Y&R cast over the years appearing at parties and events.
  17. I have been waiting years to see an episode with the characters of Ron and Nancy Becker. I read Ron was a very troubled and sleazy character. Dick DeCoit who played Ron is still acting (mostly stage work). I saw a comedy sketch featuring him a few years ago on youtube. I think I read Ron's mother was played by Carolyn Conwell who of course came back in 1980 to play Mary Williams.
  18. I would love to see full episodes of Merv, Mike Douglas, and Dinah from the 70's and 80's. They had great guests. There are small snips and interviews here and there on youtube, but not too many full shows. John Davidson also had a talk show in the early 80's and clips of that show up from time to time. Speaking of Merv, someone uploaded a bit of a 1981 show where The Carpenters are on promoting their latest album Made In America. They perform " Want You Back In My Life Again". Karen looks so emaciated, and it is so sad to see her in that condition. Olivia Newton John (Karen's best friend) and John Travolta are also guests and they all sit on the couch and chat. Karen tells a funny story of her and Olivia going sailing.
  19. I think Christine was the first wife of Peter Bergman (Jack Y&R). Kevin Conroy (SFT, AW, Dynasty) has been mainly known as the voice of Batman for close to 30 years and his onscreen acting career came to a halt.
  20. Debra Messing and Thomas Haden Church had a short lived Fox sitcom Ned & Stacey.
  21. David Hasselhoff was really serious with Roberta Leighton during their time on Y&R. I remember seeing an article after she left the show in the early 80's, they had this on again, off again type relationship where he brought her to Y&R events and talk of potential marriage. Then out of the blue he is married the Catherine Hickland (when she was on Capitol). Hickland has been married 4 times and is currently married to Todd Fisher (Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher's son and brother to Carrie). Donald May met and married Carla Borelli while they starred on Texas. They are still together.
  22. There was also that talk show spoof Nigh Stand with Dick Dietrich (played by Timothy Stack). He would always accidentally say something off color or that had sexual innuendo and the audience would laugh and he would say " No people No", That's not what I meant.
  23. Another early show I remember. It was like Friends before Friends.
  24. On Knots Landing Ted Shackelford had a relationship with Terri Austin. Did anyone in the Dallas and Dynasty casts hook up ? I think Victoria Principals first husband Chris Skinner played a bit role on the show. She then hooked up with Andy Gibb after her divorce.
  25. Here is a pic of Melody and Carlos. When Melody became pregnant with Carlos daughter, they wrote it into show by having Nikki get pregnant by Victor with Victoria. This started the Victor/Nikki/Kevin storyline.
