There’s plenty of squabbling within the Abbott clan and now that’s spilled over into real life. Michael Mealor, who plays Kyle, has challenged at least one of his co-stars to stay fit during the coronavirus crisis and they are letting him know how they feel about it!
The Young and the Restless Stars Stay Fit
Among the actors Mealor asked to do push-ups is his TV aunt Eileen Davidson (Ashley). The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills housewife accepted the challenge and jokingly let Mealor know how much she disliked doing the activity as she did her pushups!
Lauralee Bell also got in on the action and did some pushups as seen on her Instagram account. She wore a unique sweatshirt that has YR on one side and BB on the other that she said she found in her mom’s closet (the late Lee Phillip Bell, The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful’s co-creator).
Fans admired both women for doing pushups, but Bell also got lots of inquiries as to how they could get their own sweatshirt!
“Girl……” posted @prassinas122, “you should have never shown us fans that sweatshirt. Now you know we all want one. 🤣🤣.”
“Lauralee, Christine, or Cricket,” wrote @charlesallen76. “I’ve been watching Y&R for over 40 years and I’m also a fan of B&B , I just gotta have that sweatshirt, size XXXL ….help your #1 fan out❤️.”
“I think that you should find a maker for that sweater you’re wearing and have everyone in the YR & BB family to wear one,” posted @lucy.chu.96. “I think it would promote team spirit amongst the cast and crew. Please consider! Also please be safe and take care!”
Bell responded to a poster saying that this unique shirt’s origins may not be known but theorizes that “Some brilliant person must’ve made this for my dad! 👏.”
Who’ll do the push-up challenge next? Will this unique sweatshirt be mass-produced? Will Michael Mealor issue another challenge? Soap Hub will keep you updated! The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
