Eric Braeden Family Suffers in LA Wildfires

Eric Braeden wrote that his granddaughter’s house was ravaged by the flames. He shared a photo and you can see below that it was a total loss. Braeden’s co-star Tracy E Bregman (Lauren Baldwin) also lost her home to the fires. She’s traveling to spend the holidays in Atlanta with her friends Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley (Chrisley Knows Best). From there she’ll head to Nashville where she has another home.

Young and the Restless actress Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) feared she lost her home but did not. Part of her property was destroyed, though. Tracey E Bregman’s Malibu home was burned to ash and these are just a few of the many losses. In one Malibu neighborhood alone, fire consumed more than 15 homes. The losses are incalculable.

Primarily a reality TV junkie, I’ve glommed onto daytime drama over the past five years and am now thoroughly addicted. My favorite is General Hospital but Days of Our Lives is picking up speed fast. CBS soaps are great to watch and I enjoy writing about all these for Soap Dirt.
