DEEP SOAP: Alvin Is No Longer The Creepiest Chipmunk
Sara Bibel writes: "Thanks to THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, I have gone from associating mascots with unusual sexual behavior to actually fearing them.

Don Diamont on joining THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
“Bill was like a father to me and helped get me through some rough times,” says Diamont, who lost his own father, and a brother, to cancer early in his Y&R run. “In my home there are no signs of what I do for a living, except for a photo of me with Bill and a framed letter he sent me that says Y&R will always be here for you.’ As it turned out, Y&R wasn’t always there for me now that Bill’s gone, but Brad certainly lived up to the feeling his dad had for me.” In fact, Diamont’s Y&R character was named after Brad Bell. “And now I’m playing a guy named Bill, which is amazing,” the star notes. “I intend to do him proud.”
