Q.Who is Scott’s father on THE YOUNG & THE REST­LESS? And why does he re­fer to Chris­tine as his aunt?

A.Scott — who used to be known as Scotty — is the son of the late Scott Grainger, a doc­tor who ar­rived on the can­vas to treat Chris­tine’s mom, Jessica, who was dy­ing of AIDS. Dur­ing that time, Scott and Chris­tine fell in love. Un­for­tu­nately, their en­gage­ment ended in dis­as­ter when it was dis­cov­ered that Scott was ac­tu­ally the prod­uct of a long-ago af­fair be­tween Jessica and his father, Jim Grainger… which meant that Chris­tine was dat­ing her half brother! Chris­tine suf­fered a dou­ble loss as she not only had to give up her would-be beau, but her mom died shortly there­after. Scott went on to marry Lauren, and it was their union which re­sulted in son Scotty, the strap­ping young man who re­cently rolled back into town and got in­volved with Sharon (much to his mom’s cha­grin).

So as you can see, Chris­tine is Scott’s aunt be­cause her half brother was his bi­o­log­i­cal father.

Q.

THE BOLD & THE BEAU­TI­FUL’S St­effy re­cently told Ridge that Bill’s shares of For­rester Cre­ations were in­signif­i­cant now that she was CEO. How many shares does Bill have, and why would they no longer fac­tor in?

A.

Bill owns 12.5% of For­rester Cre­ations, and though that’s a small por­tion, it’s given him some de­gree of power in the past when fac­tions of the For­rester fam­ily fought with each other over con­trol of the com­pany. (They typ­i­cally each needed Bill in their cor­ner in or­der to gain a ma­jor­ity). By agree­ing to be­come CEO, St­effy ef­fec­tively forged a truce with her grand­fa­ther, and along with Ridge, their com­bined ma­jor­ity stake in the com­pany would negate any funny busi­ness Bill might at­tempt by us­ing his own shares. Q. I love those blue glasses that Quinn’s been wear­ing on B&B! Are they just props, or does Rena Sofer ac­tu­ally need them? Where can I get a sim­i­lar pair?

A.Sofer may be known for her arresting blue eyes, but she’s also started to frame those pretty peep­ers in some spec­tac­u­lar specs, in­clud­ing the bold blue read­ing glasses Quinn oc­ca­sion­ally sports on the show. “I’m be­com­ing blind as I’m get­ting older, and I need read­ing glasses be­cause I can’t see what’s five inches in front of my face,” ad­mits the actress, who says she also en­joys get­ting to use the glasses as a prop in scenes. The fun specs she sports on the show (a style called Get Flocked) and an as­sort­ment of oth­ers that Sofer has worn in her var­i­ous In­sta­gram shots are by Eye­bobs and can be pur­chased at www.eye­bobs.com.

Awk. Ward.

Quinn proves men do in­deed make passes at girls who wear glasses.

“Who wants some Bill love?”
