‘Young and the Restless’ LEAK: Nick Newman Actor Joshua Morrow Not ‘Phick’ Fan – Wants This Pair Instead?

Young and the Restless spoilers from an insider at CBS spilled some tea on Joshua Morrow, the “Phick” romance – and which romance he prefers for Nick Newman instead of Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford). The leaker also revealed some interesting info about recent PR interviews made by cast members in these exclusive soap opera spoilers.

Young and the Restless Leaker Says Joshua Morrow Doesn’t Want Phick

Y&R inside scoops from our source say all the happy interview chatter from Joshua Morrow about pairing Nick Newman with Phyllis is bogus. The leaker says, not surprisingly, the showrunners tell actors what to say in interviews.

Also, remember Young and the Restless spent time, effort, and money wooing Michelle Stafford away from General Hospital. And word from behind the scenes leaking out is that she wanted Phyllis to be with Nick Newman. So, she got what she wanted.

Recall from Young and the Restless recaps that Nick broke up with Chelsea Newman (Melissa Claire Egan) abruptly. And then it was game-on with Phyllis. Our leaker says that’s because Michelle wanted it that way, although Joshua Morrow did not.

Who Did He Want Nick Newman Paired With Instead on Y&R?

Young and the Restless spoilers promise Joshua Morrow likely won’t get his way, as Nick Newman’s still with Phyllis throughout all the episodes already written and taped. So, who does the source say the actor prefers Nick with romantically?

The Young and the Restless actor reportedly wanted to stick with Nick and Chelsea. However, the insider says Stafford wanted Phyllis with him and requested her character not to reunite with Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman). So, that’s why the abrupt split with Chelsea and Nick.

The Young and the Restless inside leaker said, “Chick” is what Melissa Egan wants too. But, her character is with Adam Newman (Mark Grossman). So, according to the leak, the only actor getting what they want right now is Ms. Stafford, on Y&R.

Young and the Restless Interviews Scripted – Says Source

The Y&R source at CBS also says that actor interviews with the soap magazines and other outlets are close to scripted. They soap tells the actors what to say about their character – particularly with romantic pairings. So, they said to take Joshua Morrow’s recent interviews with a grain of salt.

The leak says powers-that-be at Young and the Restless told Joshua to talk up the “Phick” reunion. So, that’s what you’ll read/hear in interviews, per the leaker. So, if you’re a fan of Nick Newman with Red, the good news is, that pairing will continue for the foreseeable future.

For now, the insider says Phyllis remains with Nick Newman, and Adam will be with Chelsea. As for Jack, unless Jill sticks around, he’ll be alone. So, keep watching but brace yourself for when Y&R runs out of fresh episodes and begins airing themed re-reruns next week.

It’ll be exciting for newer watchers to see Jeanne Cooper as Katherine Chancellor in the first week of classic episodes. And, it’ll likely be May before production resumes. And that means it’s June (at the earliest) before we get any more new Joshua Morrow episodes as Nick Newman.
