NEWS ROUNDUP: Eric Braeden Loves North Carolina, Jen Lilley Visits Virginia Beach

Y&R's Eric Braeden shares his love of North Carolina
Braeden tells a story he heard from an artist he met whose father was a preacher. “There’s a tradition in the church there, maybe you know it, where you raise your hand to pray for someone,” he begins.

Seems one woman in the congregation kept asking them to pray for a man they thought was a member. Each week, she’d ask for his prayer; the man had amnesia. He’d been divorced and married several times. He had problems with his children. The prayer requests kept coming and the congregation prayed but they couldn’t figure out who this member was.

“Finally, it slipped out that the person was very rich,” says Braeden. “And no one in that parish is rich. They asked her and found out she was praying for Victor Newman!

“I love that story!” Braeden says, laughing uproariously. “It’s touching, it’s sweet, it’s humorous.”
