In the "Young and Restless" episode airing on July 23, Amber (Adrienne Frantz) and Daniel (Michael Graziadei) seek help from Dr. Drew and Stryker when they call in to the radio talk show "Loveline" to try to sort out their complicated relationship. Things get out of hand as Daniel and Amber rehash all of the events they have been through over the past year.
In conjunction with this episode, Frantz and Graziadei will be live guests on the real syndicated radio call-in program, which offers medical and relationship advice to listeners, on Monday, July 21 from 10 p.m. to midnight Pacific Time. The show will air on the East Coast the following day.
The popular, multiple-award-winning daily soap "Les Feux de L'Amour" (aka "The Young and the Restless" in the U.S.) will be shooting in Paris for the program's first-ever on-location shoot in France. While the specific actors participating in the Parisian story line are yet to be confirmed, the week of filming is scheduled for October 2008. The on-location shoot precedes the series' upcoming 20th anniversary of airing in France.
When Vincent Irizarry took on the role of "Young and Restless'" David Chow, it was to be short term. In 2006, Chow was originally part of the "who killed Carmen?" story line. Writers had planned to create lots of tension between Dru (Victoria Rowell) and Chow. When Rowell decided to exit the show, the proposed story line was axed. The folks at Y&R did not want to lose Irizarry's major acting talents, so they paired him with Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott). Now that pairing is about to end and Irizarry will be leaving. No word on who he is targeting, but nice guy Chow has turned into a gambling addict who may have murder on his mind. Also note that the Ji Min murder was never solved. So perhaps the new head writers at Y&R plan to pin everything on Chow before he says so long.
Irizarry has lots of daytime drama credits. On "Guiding Light," he played two roles: from 1984 to 1986 as Lujack Luvanoczeck, and five years later as Lujack's twin brother, Nick McHenry. He also spent a decade on "All My Children." On both shows, Irizarry acted up a storm with Marj Dusay, who played his mother twice. Dusay is still at GL. It would great to re-team these two. At this rating point, AMC and GL need a boost and Irizarry could be the man to help.
