HOLLYWOOD—On “The Young and the Restless,” you can always expect hot super couples. Doug Davidson who portrays the private investigator Paul Williams is one half of a pairing that has become very popular on the show. Lauralee Bell is the other half. This week Paul, who is involved with his ex-wife’s best friend found his love Chris, played by Bell, back in Genoa City and in his life again. Doug Davidson is superbly talented and handsome, but fans want to know, which lady is Paul going to choose, Chris or Nina? Davidson plays the standup guy who can’t help but love two women with such perfection.
Paul has recently fallen in love with Nina. They are more than a couple, but longtime friends. What is a bit strange for viewers is that Paul’s ex-wife Chris has been gone for several years, leaving the handsome guy a bit lonely and in need of companionship. Paul has been dealing with his psychotic sister, Patty and all sorts of upheaval in his life. When Lauralee returned as Chris, fans knew Paul would be the first person she visited. In her first scene back on the show, Chris knocked on Paul’s apartment door, then she found him and her best friend Nina in bed together.
Doug Davidson plays a leading man better than almost any other actor. The handsome blond star has been a fan favorite for almost three decades on the hit show, he also enjoys working with his two leading ladies Tricia Cast (Nina) and Lauralee Bell (Christine). Paul and Chris were the most popular soap couple for many years on CBS, and Bell’s return is bringing a renewed excitement to a show that is one of the most entertaining in television history.
It is so exciting to see Doug Davidson in this new storyline. He’s magnificent and such a strong actor. Here’s a chance for “Y&R” fans to help decide who Paul, played by Doug Davidson should be with. Go to the website for “The Young and the Restless” athttp://www.sonypictures.com/tv/shows/soaps/index.php and vote for your choice for Paul’s leading lady. Although I am certainly not going to tell anyone who to vote for. My vote goes for Christine played by Lauralee Bell.
“Y&R” is helmed by the magnificently talented Maria Arena Bell, our Bel Air resident who is known throughout the city and the world. Maria’s doing an incredible job as head writer and executive producer. “Y&R” is the show to watch this summer. It airs weekdays on CBS.
