Q.

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!
