Rowell speaks on race and diversity.

Drucilla Keeps Busy Even Out of Genoa City!

Victoria Rowell (Drucilla, Y&R) isn't afraid to speak her mind. Appearing as a guest panelist on America's Black Forum special: Blacks in TV, 25 Years — airing in syndication beginning Jan. 5 — Rowell gives a voice to race relations in the daytime arena.

"The Young and the Restless does reflect diversity in daytime, and it is practiced by CBS and Sony by way of our show," says Rowell proudly. "I give homage to what we've been doing for the past 30 years, and stress how [diversity] should effect all mediums."

Participating in the distinguished discusion, which includes civil rights leader Julian Bond, was an honor for the actress. "You are not invited to sit on a panel with Julian if you don't know your facts," she declares. "We discussed politics, media and programming; it's a very rich experience."

Forum is just one of many projects that kept Rowell busy through the end of the year. She just wrapped the movie, A Perfect Fit, in New York City. "I'm starring with an actor named Adrian Grenier, and people are calling him a young Benicio Del Toro."

Through Rowell Foster Children's Positive Plan, the actress threw a foster care reform kickoff party at Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles, which brought out action star Bruce Willis. And the advocate is featured as the Hero of the Month in the January issue of Glamour magazine. "On page 22. I'm not ashamed to make the plug," she chuckles.

Days of our Lives Patsy Pease talks 50th and playing Kimberly Brady

Patsy Pease, who plays Kimberly Brady on Days of our Lives said that she is looking forward to the show's 50th anniversary and is so proud to be able to be a part of such a monumental program.

"Yes! I can't even think of a favorite moment. It was everyday," Pease said. "I love being Kim Brady. I have my life, and she has hers. I tend to mine and I tend to hers. I love it!"

Pease has been on Days of our Lives since 1984, and is celebrating her 31st year. Back in the day, Pease along with Charles Shaughnessy (Shane) were the hottest couple on daytime TV. In fact, they were once called "the" Super Couple.

Pease's character has been through it all -- lovers, trials and tribulations, and even went through a period of hysterical blindness, which she portrayed so well.
