For anybody who's interested in some of the shows that are/were filmed at CBS Television city, here are some things I remember from when my husband worked there (managed the cafe). Eric Braeden from the Young and the Restless came in to the cafe and spoke to some of the workers there in flawless Spanish. He's one of the few people Richard has met who speaks perferct English, German and Spanish. My daughter went in with him one time on a Saturday. They used to film Hollywood Squares on weekends. The host, Tom Bergeron, said hi to her, but she was so shy she just hid behind her dad. I was pregnant with twins and Richard was catering the Muscular Dystrophy telethon. Well, on LABOR DAY, I went into labor and he had to leave to come to the hospital. As he was leaving Jerry Lewis came up to him, told him to get the heck out of there and to send his love. I went in with him on a weekend and we walked around and stuck in a corner was the Price is Right wheel. So I gave it a spin and landed on a dollar. Man was that thing heavy! I never did get to see the show being filmed but he did bring me Bob Barker's autograph shortly before he retired. He also brought me an American Idol autograph, Anwar Robinson. He got eliminated fairly early in season 4 but he did do a beautiful rendition of Moon River! Just a few stories from not so long ago. Got any celebrity stories of your own?

Sorry I don't have any stories to share, but wanted to thank you for sharing these awesome stories here with us. The Young and Restless is my favorite soap, so it was nice to hear about Eric Braeden.

Hm, I can get other Y&R stories from Richard. I know the lady who plays Phyllis (can't remember her name just this sec) is really nice and that he spent the night in Sharon Case's dressing room (alone lol) when he was doing the telethon!
