THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Rome Flynn stunned everyone by announcing on social media that he'd be leaving the role of Zende. THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS viewers are dying to see what executive producer Mal Young will bring to the table when he also takes on headwriting duties. Tonight, join host Richard M.
