Doesn’t THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Jack have a son other than Kyle? What happened to him? Robert Reeves Alexandria, VA
A.While Jack does indeed have another son from his time in Vietnam — Keemo — the two always had a rocky relationship. When Christine first tracked Keemo down in Vietnam, the young man resented Jack for abandoning him — until he learned from mom Luan that they’d become separated during the war before Jack even knew she was pregnant. Once Jack reunited with the family he didn’t know he had, he broke off his engagement to Mari Jo to marry his former love. Sadly, their union was short-lived, with Luan dying of a terminal illness. Keemo was upset that Jack never told him that his mother was dying, but ultimately, the young man forgave him. Still, with his mom gone, the writing was on the wall, and it wasn’t much of a surprise when Keemo decided to return to Vietnam, where he has been ever since. Though he isn’t brought up much, there have been a few occasions over the years where Jack has mentioned Keemo and even called to wish him well during the holidays!
Q. I know that THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’S Justin Barber is supposed to be Emma’s uncle, but isn’t he also the brother to Y&R’S Olivia Barber? Could Emma be her child? J. Smolik via E-mail
A.That would certainly be an interesting twist, and goodness knows we’d love to see Y& R’s Tonya Williams (ex-olivia) surface on B&B as Emma’s Mommie Dearest. But unfortunately, you’re not completely accurate in her connection to Justin. When Williams made a cameo on B&B back in 2011 for Justin and Donna’s wedding, it was established that she was his first cousin, not his sister. Still, it’s true that Olivia (and her spitfire sister, Drucilla) could very well be blood-related to Emma!
