Soaps: One Big, Happy Family

OK, maybe not always!

We at Soap Cities love when a character from one soap visits another soap–especially when they’re sister soaps like “The Young and the Restless” (Y&R) and “Bold and the Beautiful” (B&B) are. reported McCook’s exciting upcoming appearance on YR.

In addition to shorter stays in B&B’s Los Angeles setting, Bregman starred on the soap from 1995-1999. During that time, she and Eric hit it off and began a relationship.

Now Lauren is happily married to Michael (Christian LeBlanc), and Eric is newly married to Quinn (Rena Sofer). But as viewers know, Lauren’s business, the boutique, Fenmore’s, is in a bit of a financial pickle. Jack (Peter Bergman) last week offered to invest in Fenmore’s to help keep the company afloat.

As a fashion magnate himself, Eric may be on his way to help Lauren’s business as well. Look for him on Y&R on January 27th.
