On November 30 Tristan Lake Leabu shared a photo on Instagram – and the actor is walking onto the CGS lot with the hastags #work #pages #cbs. A follower asked, “Audition or booking? Either one, congratulations!!!” Tristan replied, “I’m on a show, but I can’t say what, yet and thank you!”




It’s been quite some time since ‘Y&R’ viewers Reed’s father JT in Genoa City. Victoria and JT’s marriage fell apart. JT didn’t want Victor Newman [Eric Braeden] to have anything to do with raising Reed and sued Victoria for full custody.

While all this was going on JT was involved in a relationship with Katherine Chancellor’s granddaughter Mackenzie Browning [Clementine Ford]. JT received full custody of Reed, Mac was offered a job in Washington, D.C., married JT and the couple left town. Mac later gave birth to a son the couple named Dylan. From time to time Reed has visited his Victoria.

If Reed is back in town does that mean JT will return also? Victoria’s love life is in disarray. ‘The Young and the Restless’ fans have been led to believe that there had been some rockiness in JT and Mac’s marriage.
