Neil Moved On From Dru!
Ten years ago, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Neil had gotten chummy with PR whiz Karen after losing Dru less than a year before. But was he truly ready to give his heart to another woman?
“The fact remains that Neil has not yet recovered from Dru’s loss,” shared Kristoff St. John ( Neil). “That’s evidenced by the fact that every time he gets around a pretty girl like Karen, he talks about his dead wife. He’s still lost in confusion, sorrow and despair.”
Fortunately, the recovering alcoholic didn’t fall off the wagon, which made him ready to be in a healthier relationship. “He’s more or less cleaned up his act,” noted St. John. “So what lies ahead? Karen… ”
And while it remained unclear if Karen could be the one to fill the void Dru left in Neil’s life, Nia Peeples (ex-karen) said, “[The writ- ers] are testing the romantic waters. What I’m learning is that the fans are so incredibly loyal to characters that when you start making changes, you really have to do it at a pace that [the viewers] are keen on.”
