Patty Weaver: Unscripted.
Star sighting! For years, many in Genoa City would dine at Gina’s Restaurant and listen to their hostess sing at the piano. If you’re wondering what the actress has been up to these days, on Saturday April 30 many gathered to support former “The Young and the Restless” alum Patty Weaver (Gina Romalotti, 1984 to 2013) at Nuspace in Los Angeles, California as she unveiled her art collection. Among the guests were Jerry Douglas (John Abbott) and co-creator of “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “Y&R” Lee Phillip Bell (wife of the late William J. Bell). Numerous dreamscape pieces were on display at the ‘Unscripted’ event and fans can view Patty Weaver’s art and read what inspired her to create each piece on her website. After leaving acting, and having spent years in the fictional world of television and film, Weaver learned to paint in her studio through her own visions. Prior to “Y&R,” her first stint in daytime was on “Days of our Lives” in 1976 as Trish Clayton, a role she played until 1982.
