The Young and the Restless’ Christine Williams is a straight-shooter and isn’t a fan of playing games. Off-screen, however, her portrayer, Lauralee Bell, is a big admirer of programs where players compete for prizes!
Lauralee Bell Reminisces
“I love #gameshows and we used to be asked to do shows like @wheeloffortune and @familyfeud,” Bell recalls on Instagram, where she also posted a snap of herself on Wheel of Fortune years back. “They were super fun days! Total adrenaline rush!
“I’m so excited to hear they are bringing back #celebritywheeloffortune this Thursday and I’ll be rooting on my friend @yvettenicolebrown and others! You’ll kick [expletive]! #itseasierathome #imayhavebeenpreggers in this pic.
“And a shoutout to @officialvannawhite and #patsajak who calm your nerves and always rock (besides the show) the last 15 seconds with a funny impromptu on the spot closing!” Bell adds. “Not easy to come up with those for years but their banter is always quick-humored!”
On this week’s Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, watch for Leslie Jones (Saturday Night Live), Chandra Wilson (Grey’s Anatomy), and skateboarding icon Tony Hawk to compete. Celebrity Wheel of Fortune is hosted by Pat Sajak and Vanna White serves as America’s most famous letter-turner. (The original Wheel of Fortune debuted in 1975 and was first hosted by Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford.)
Stars will compete for the chance to win up to $1 million. All the money won by the celebrity contestants will go to a charity of their choice.
Jones is playing for Feeding America; Wilson is playing for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and Hawk is playing for Feeding San Diego. Next week, Rob Riggle (Modern Family), ABC and ESPN sportscaster Joe Tessitore, and Jeannie Mai (The Real; Dancing With the Stars) will compete on the show on Thursday, January 21. No word yet on when Brown will be competing on the program. Celebrity Wheel of Fortune airs Thursdays, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
