The Young and the Restless star Lauralee Bell doesn’t have much family in Genoa City now that Christine’s nephew Scott has left town. But off-screen Bell has plenty of relatives and she recently shared a fun family moment she had with them on social media.
Lauralee and her brothers, Bradley Bell (executive producer/head writer, The Bold and the Beautiful), and her brother Bill Bell, who plays a behind the scenes role in the family business, recently visited their mother, Lee Phillip Bell, co-creator of both Y&R and The Bold and the Beautiful.
The Y&R actress wrote that when all three of your children visit at the same time it’s mandatory that you do the “happy hand cheer!”
The Bell siblings grew up in Chicago when their father, the late William J. Bell, creator of both Y&R and B&B, wrote soap operas including As the World Turns, Another World, Days of Our Lives, and Y&R from their home. Their mother, Lee, had her own TV talk show, The Lee Phillip Show, on WBBM, the CBS affiliate in Chicago. In 1986, the family moved to Beverly Hills as Lauralee was appearing on Y&R as Cricket, and also so they could start up B&B, which debuted on March 23, 1987.
The Young and the Restless (YR) and The Bold and the Beautiful (BB) air weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for airtimes.
