Now I realize Tracy Bregman is a mom in real-life but when she refuses to work the hours required to support a front-burner storyline, her character shouldn't be married to a front-burner storyline character like Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc).  And yet her fans bitch about her lack of airtime.  Okay people - she has a lack of airtime because she doesn't want to work the fricking hours because she wants to be part-time to be with her family!

What I'm pissed about is that her refusal to work the hours affects Christian LeBlanc who is a hard working and gifted actor and should be front burner all the time, but it seems the only thing they have for him without his "wife" is being Victor's mouthpiece and sparring with his demented but funny brother and his evil whore of a mother!  Therefore, the writers need to break this marriage up, let Tracy Bregman have her housewifey part-time job just being in the background and appearing time to time.  That way, CLB can move on and enjoy scenes with actors/actresses who are willing to put in the hours.

Well, gals, I think we're probably in the minority here because the Baldwin/Fenmore union is considered divorce-proof and sacred by most.  To me,
it's just a waste of CLB's talent.  :angry:

Hi, Merlot!

I was wondering where you came by this information? I had always thought she was on recurring status by TPTB due to budget cuts, and not because she did not want to work full time. She has been on recurring status for many years now, and even with that she carried a big storyline when Sheila was running around, as herself and as the Phyllis look-a-like. Did she do an interview or something? Thanks!

  :blink: she really does hold him back and truthfully I am amazed he doesn't complain.. it is time to break them up.. and aren't TB's kids getting old enough for her to work more.. either that or quit.. I am not her biggest fan that is for sure.. and again today she is trying to look 20 at the stagette..

ya I am sinshine from cbs

I am not loving lauren's looks lately.. she is looking mighty trashy..

but the problem is that TB does not want to work full time.. so it limits the story they give them.. I love mikey or I did.. now he is almost on existant and that has happened since they paired him with Lauren.. so for me I want them over.

Why do they have to break up for CLB to get a s/l or more airtime? There are a ton of ways they can explain Lauren not being attatched to Micheal's hip. Good grief, Dylan on Guiding Light is often referred to by other characters as if he is still in town, but he hasn't actually been seen by viewers for months!
I would like to see more of CLB also, I just don't think they have to break up the couple to do it.

I love Michael and Lauren as a couple!

They were so much fun when they were courting, and I remember especially when they were making out in the barn at the Newman Ranch, and hid under the hay, almost getting caught! They were sexy, cute, and fun as a couple!

I love the way they support each other so completely, like when she has a panic attack, the way he takes care of her! Even when they have big fights, they are still solid as a couple.

Too often in soaps, couples split up over small things, and move on to the next person the next week. No one seems to be able to maintain a healthy and lasting relationship. I love Michael and Lauren because they are THAT couple for me ... the one who stays together despite problems that occur in their marriage, or from without, like from Gloria.

Tracey Bregman was hired by Y&R in 2001, and offered to reprise her role of Lauren Fenmore as a recurring actress. Whether she dictated that choice or the show, I do not know. During these past few years, she has carried a large amount of storyline on various occasions. And, whether she is there all the time or not has nothing to do with how much time we see Michael.

I would be VERY disappointed to see them break up their marriage! Someone HAS to stay married on the show! They make a sexy, great and powerful couple, with a lot of life, love and fun left in them. Now, if we can just get the writers to get the show back on track, Christian Jules LeBlanc and Tracey Bregman will be able to come back strong with a rock-em, sock-em storyline!

What can I say? I love Michael and Lauren as a couple!

I think clb is being wasted right now.. and that is cuz he is hooked up with TEB. IMO anyways.. ever since they got married mikey has become a dull wimpy boy.. break him free.. I want him single.. he is much better when he has no one to answer too.

This couple just don't have any interesting s/l right now. Lauren's abscence can be easily explained away without them breaking up.  But seriously this couple does nothing for me.
