    Paul Williams - 30 Years on The Young and the Restless!

    Monday, June 02 2008


    Doug Davidson as Paul Williams (Soaps.com)
    Soaps.com readers know that back on May 15th, The Young and the Restless's Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) celebrated 30 years on the show! As a tribute to the character we have watched evolve over the years from a young man to a dashing Detective, Soaps.com recently conducted a poll on the Y&R Main Page, to find out what our readers are feel should happen in Paul's currently non-existent love life!

    Of course, over the years, the handsome, blond and blue-eyed Paul has romanced his fair share of ladies including, Nikki Reed (Melody Thomas Scott), Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman), Cassandra Rawlins (Nina Arveson), Christine Blair (Lauralee Bell), Isabella Brana (Eva Longoria), and most recently, Detective Maggie Sullivan.

    The results of the Soaps.com poll, indicated that a majority, 51%, wanted to see Paul's most recent love, Maggie, return to Genoa City and pick up where she left off with her man. However, 24% see potential for old flame Nikki to fall back into a romance with Paul, perhaps after he rescues her from David's clutches! Another 11% of Soaps.com readers thought the idea of bringing Ashley Abbott back to town from L.A. and hooking her up with our lonely detective was a good idea. A small percentage, 7%, would like to see him go another round with ex-wife Lauren, while the final 7% of voters thought Paul should be given an entirely new love interest on Y&R!

    Perhaps Paul is just too busy for romance right now, as he seems to be spending every spare moment trying to solve the puzzle that is David Chow, in order to prevent Nikki from suffering certain heartache, bankruptcy - or even death! Our Paul has a well-proven track record of saving damsels in distress on The Young and the Restless, including the time he unearthed Lauren (who had been buried alive by a madman), and his past heroism where Nikki is concerned, when he saved her from the sinister Rick Daros (Randy Holland)!

    Soaps.com recently took a look at a funny incident from when Paul was married to Lauren in Yesteryears: Paul Williams. Check it out! Congratulations go out to Doug Davidson on making the character of Paul Williams so loved over all of these 30 years! Here's to many more to come!

    WOW 30 years here's to another 30! Paul Williams is one of the best characters on the show. I hope they bring Maggie back to the show I would say Christine but Lauralee Bell has no intentions on coming back anytime soon and she cannot be replaced.

    Congrats!! That's great. I would prefer Paul not get with Nikki. I love the idea of Paul and Ashley getting together. That would be a good new hot couple.

    I would love to see Paul and NIkki get together, but since that's not going to happen, maybe Paul and David Chow's ex-dead wife's daughter! Now that would be a shocker!

    Congratulation Paul!

    I would love to see Paul with Lynne his secretary. Lynne always had a special place in her heart for Paul.

    Wonderful to watch Paul grow up/old on Y$R.
    Where is his lady love Maggie?

    I love Paul. He is so easy on the eyes. I do wish he would hurry and call David out. I do not like the guy. He is a snake. And I have one question? Where does Brad play in his little game?

    I love the Restless Style ideas. I think that Amber is the perfect pick for the tease page. I know I don't get a penny for my thoughts, but why not have the producers Jack, Sharon, Nick and Phyllis meet in the middle with a flipside magazine - Two covers - two restless mediums - the young and edgy and the mid-age edgy. Wouldn't that be a winner!

    I do wish that they would bring Maggie back so her and Paul could make up for lost time. They were great together.Shirley2
