Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Patrika says that her grandmother was such a huge fan of The Young and the Restless, that she never missed an episode back in the day. In fact, Patrika says there’s a very good chance that her grandmother is looking down at her right now and is so proud of the fact that her granddaughter has a storyline on her favorite show. And when we say she never missed a show, we really mean it.
The actress told the publication, “Just to give you an idea, 25 years ago, my husband and I were visiting her in Wisconsin, and we wanted to take her out to lunch and she said, ‘Oh I can’t go out now, my story is on,’ which was The Young and the Restless. While she was watching, my husband went to the store, bought a VCR, hooked it up, and showed her how it worked.”
