On a special episode of Hallmark Channel's MARIE on Monday, April 1, Marie Osmond celebrates 40 years of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.
Marie is first joined by two actors who once played a tumultuous couple on the show, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Peter Bergman (Jack).

Next, another duo formerly paired, Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) and Joshua Morrow (Nick), take the stage to talk about their start on the show 20 years ago and how their personal lives have changed dramatically since then.
They are followed by Lauralee Bell (Christine) and Doug Davidson (Paul). Lauralee dishes about her return to the show and what it was like being the creators' daughter while Doug reveals what it was like romancing the bosses' daughter on screen.
Finally, Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) and Jess Walton (Jill) discuss the rivalry between their characters and reveal their favorite on-screen battles.
Plus, the cast answers their fans most pressing questions about what goes on in front of the camera and behind the scenes.
Marie closes the episode with a tribute to William J. Bell, the co-creator and head writer of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.
