Sheila Carter had great success bridging her roles in different shows

Sheila Carter

Kimberlin Brown’s character Sheila Carter began her “The Young and the Restless” tenure as a villain. However, her terror in Genoa City was meant to be fleeting.

However, “The Young and the Restless” creator William J. Bell decided that Carter should crossover to “The Bold and the Beautiful” because of the villain’s popularity, which viewers loved to hate.

And the rest is history. Carter’s move to Los Angeles “became probably the most successful crossover in daytime history,” according to Brown in an interview.

Over the years, Carter has made multiple appearances in Genoa City and Los Angeles due to her continued popularity. Overall, viewers of both soap operas are familiar with Carter as a character.

Ashley Abbott enjoyed some time in Los Angeles

Ashley Abbott

Following their encounter with Rick Forrester in France, Ashley Abbott lived for a while in Los Angeles. She moved to Los Angeles in March 2007 to work as a fragrance designer for Forrester Creations.

It was there that she met Ridge Forrester, Rick’s half-brother. In the end, this caused Abbott and Brooke Logan to become rivals, and they seldom agreed on anything.

Abbott remained in Los Angeles until the end of December 2008. She has since worked intermittently with her family in Genoa City, including a brief assignment at Newman Enterprises.

She is back in France right now, but who knows? Abbott could return to Los Angeles in the near future.

However, she might choose to spend any free time she has in Genoa City because she is now the grandmother of Abby Newman’s child.

Lauren Fenmore’s crossover to The Bold and the Beautiful was very successful

Naturally, any fair examination of the crossovers between “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” would be incomplete without bringing up Lauren Fenmore Baldwin.

Sheila Carter terrified Baldwin for years, thus her stories had something in common with Carter’s.

Furthermore, after becoming friends with Baldwin, Eric Forrester supported his buddy by traveling to Genoa City for Baldwin’s 2005 wedding as well as a few other occasions.

Baldwin and Forrester dated for a while, but in the end, Forrester withdrew due to Stephanie Forrester. Nevertheless, despite Genoa City’s distance from Los Angeles, the former lovers stay close.
So maybe it’s time for these two to collaborate once more.

When will we see these charismatic characters together again on screen? For supporters, only time will tell.

Romantizing The Young and the Restless, Deacon Sharpe and Nikki Newman

 Nikki Newman

After causing problems for Brooke Logan on “The Bold and the Beautiful,” where he fathered Hope, Deacon Sharpe finally fell in love with Nikki Newman.

A while back, Sharpe was in Genoa City with Newman and Phyllis Summers, yet he is presently back in Los Angeles attempting to mend his ways with Logan and his daughter.

Indeed, Soap Hub surmises that when Sharpe’s stint in Los Angeles is up, he’ll head back to Genoa City and knock Summers off her feet once more, even if she’s becoming closer to Jack Abbott.

It would be logical as Sharpe may be the villain “The Young and the Restless” has been lacking for some time. Sheila Carter could, of course, do the same. Maybe these sister soap operas may soon have more than one crossover.

Hope Thornhart, Cole, and Starr Manning from One Life to Live at General Hospital

One Life to Live series finale

On January 13, 2012, One Life to Live series finale, Starr X’d lovers Starr Manning and Cole Thornhart seemed finally ready for that whole happy ever after thing.

With their daughter, Hope, and closest friends Markko and Langston, the adolescent parents were reunited in Los Angeles after a multi-character jailbreak and Cole nearly dying at the hands of an obsessive coed.

When the young Manning-Thornhart family was traveling through the ostensibly quiet village of Port Charles, New York, their lives took an unexpected and tragic turn.

Llanview couple and their daughter were caught up in a deadly vehicle crash caused by local rival mobsters Anthony Zacchara and Sonny Corinthos.

OLTL fans who accompanied their favorite characters to General Hospital probably gasped in shock when they realized that Cole and Hope—trapped in the totaled car—were likely headed for a fiery death at the edge of the cliff.

Hopefully, the possibility of Starr’s unfortunate love, Corinthos scion Michael, healing her shattered heart, and the impending epic battle between Sonny and Starr’s turbulent father, Todd Manning, will make losing Hope and Cole worthwhile.

Robin Scorpio and Anna Devane from All My Children to General Hospital

Robin Scorpio and Anna Devane

Fans of General Hospital had been waiting years for the reunion of her adored daughter Robin Scorpio with the superspy Anna Devane, who was thought to be dead.

They probably didn’t anticipate that the reunion would happen in Pine Valley, Pennsylvania, rather than Port Charles, New York, at All My Children’s.

Nearly ten years after Anna and her ex-husband Robert (Tristan Rogers) were believed to have perished in an explosion, Alexandra Marick, Anna’s previously unheard-of identical twin sister, was discovered alive and in excellent health in 2001.

After arriving in Pine Valley, the amnesiac quickly assimilated into Alex’s married family, the Andrassy-Maricks. Unfortunately for Princess Gillian Andrassy, a hitman sent to dispose of Anna, ended up killing the royal instead!

Fans wept with excitement when Anna finally reunited with Robin in 2001, but it was her long-awaited family reunion with Gillian’s widower Ryan Lavery, a distant cousin of Anna’s own late husband Duke, that truly touched their hearts.

In the end, Anna found a seductive and complex love in Pine Valley, where she fell in love with the cunning Dr. David Hayward. Anna had been sent by the Feds to look into Hayward.

Although their marriage was arranged to prevent Anna from testifying against David, their love was too real. Soon after, Anna contributed to the evidence that David’s mother was the infamous drug dealer Proteus, not him!

When Anna found out that David had been keeping a presumably deceased Maria Santos Grey away from her family for years, her love for David was put under strain.

Nevertheless, the pair eventually gave birth to a daughter called Leora, who was named after David’s late brother Leo.

When Leora died and Anna later learned David was back to his old tricks, she left him and Pine Valley for good.
