The week of June 25, 2018
Talk about typecasting. KCBS-TV news anchor Pat Harvey appears as — you guessed it — a newscaster on Monday, June 25. It’s a one-time guest spot and a dream come true to Harvey. Apparently, the newswoman has been a big fan of The Young and the Restless for years.
Former Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl champ, Drew Pearson, debuts as Dwayne on Thursday, June 28. Like the aforementioned Harvey, he’s also a bigtime fan of the soap. Pearson will share scenes with Eric Braeden (Victor Newman), since he’s playing the Genoa City tycoon’s bodyguard.
