As THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS continues its promotional blitz for the real-life Jabot Cosmetics line, stars Peter Bergman (Jack) and Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren) will drop by THE TALK tomorrow, Thursday, July 14, airing at 2 p.m. EST on CBS.
When the two actors visited the talk show set, they weren’t just there to be guests on the chatfest. As their alter egos, they also shot scenes with co-hosts Holly Robinson Peete and Leah Remini, which will air on Y&R on Thursday, July 28! “I’ve seen [THE TALK] a few times,” Bregman says. “I was so thrilled to be able to meet Leah and Holly. I followed Holly on CELEBRITY APPRENTICE and I’ve been a fan of Leah’s since KING OF QUEENS.”
The crossover was actually a reunion for Bergman and Remini — the Emmy-winning daytime star once guested on KING OF QUEENS! “Peter Bergman is one of the sweetest guys in the world,” Remini tells Soaps In Depth. “We did a dream sequence on THE KING OF QUEENS where we had to kiss. He was lovely then, and he is still lovely. Peter and Tracey were both gracious with THE TALK’s audience, and even got us flowers the next day to thank us! Truly, a classy duo.”
Why is it that only Robinson Peete and Remini will appear on the Y&R episode? “All of the ladies wanted to do it and all of them were up for it, but Y&R just asked for two,” explains THE TALK executive producer John Redmann. “They’re fans of [Y&R] so they were up on the characters.
“It’s great exposure for us,” he adds. “It’ll bring more eyes to our show and it’s a way to be a part of the CBS Daytime family. We have such respect for what they do on [Y&R.]”
