Reality and Fiction Collide in Soap/Talk Crossover

A few weeks ago, Peter Bergman and Tracey E. Bregman, who play Jack and Lauren on CBS’s THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, made a guest appearance on THE TALK.

They appeared as actors, not their characters, to promote the Jabot cosmetics line.

Jabot is a fictional company on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, started by Jack’s father, John Abbott. But now Jabot is also a real cosmetic brand created to attract fans of the show who had heard the name mentioned for decades on the soap.

But here’s where it gets really interesting.  Or confusing, depending on your point of view.

On Thursday, during THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, the characters of Jack and Lauren travel from Genoa City, Wisconsin, to Los Angeles to appear on THE TALK. In that episode, they’ll be promoting the fictional version of Jabot Cosmetics while being interviewed by Julie Chen, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete, Sara Gilbert and Sharon Osbourne, the female hosts of THE TALK, appearing as themselves.

If you understand all of that, you’re probably smart enough to solve the nation’s debt crisis.

Needless to say, the characters’ fictional appearance on the talk show was taped earlier on the same day that the actors appeared as guests.

So be sure to tune in to Thursday’s Y&R; there are sure to be surprises waiting for nearly everyone.
