Hey Y&R fans, every second Saturday TV Banter discusses the latest happenings and provides commentary on your favourite daytime drama. Note to U.S. readers - SPOILER ALERT: Here in Canada, I watch the show on Global TV, which is one episode ahead of CBS. I will inevitably refer to incidents you haven't seen yet. Read at your own risk. If you are the curious type, though, you may prefer to discover some things in advance.
Some sad and disturbing news for Y&R fans. In a recent Facebook live, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) revealed that he has been diagnosed with bladder cancer. The actor, who has recently recovered from knee surgery, is now facing another, more serious, heath issue. Eric, who has portrayed Victor for 43 years, has undergone treatment. He is a tough man and we fans wish him the best.
