Young & Restless’ Chelsea Has One Surprise After Another for Melissa Claire Egan — With a Little Help From the Prop Department
Oh, hey, finally know what her sign is!
This past week, Young & Restless fans got a little extra insight into Chelsea when Melissa Claire Egan shared her character’s driver’s license in a serious of hilarious Instagram stories. The best part was that it didn’t just contain surprises for the fans, but for Chelsea’s portrayer too!
For one thing, Chelsea’s full address is 1500 Market Street, PH, Genoa City, Wisconsin. The “PH,” for those wondering, stands for penthouse. It’s a rich person thing. (Don’t bother Google Mapping it, we already tried. The real Genoa City doesn’t have a Market Street!)
Plus, Chelsea’s an organ donor! So, that’s wonderfully selfless of the one-time con artist. And hey, we could see that the mom would be a big supporter of organ donation, seeing as how her own son, Connor, is only able to see after receiving a cornea transplant from Delia.
The real juicy details, though, were of a more personal nature. Chelsea has brown hair and brown eyes, which isn’t exactly a shocker seeing as how that’s how Egan looks in real life. And they did get one other detail right — but the rest were the result of a bit of creative licensing!
“Regarding the previous slide,” Egan explained after showing off the Wisconsin license, “that was Chelsea’s ID today on The Young and the Restless, and I just wanna thank our prop guys and gals for saying she was 5’3”, which is true. Factual. And also saying she is 110 pounds? Also true…” The actress made a face and shook her head slightly. “And saying I was born in 1985.”
She then laughed delightedly and mouthed, “Thank you.” But it didn’t end there. Chelsea’s birthday is apparently May 17.
“I also think it’s funny that I’m a Taurus,” she added, “even though really I’m a Libra. It’s fine, it’s fine! I was born in 1985, it’s fine.”
Hey, we say it’s more than fine. So, cheers to this 36-year-old, 110 pound Taurus! May she never be put in the position where her organs must be donated. Honestly, in a city where rising from the dead is as common as Wisconsin snow, she’s probably pretty safe.
Check out the gallery below of the 10 Young & Restless men Chelsea could end up with besides Adam!
<p>If Sharon and Adam <em>do</em> reunite — and the writing is on the wall, in big, bold letters — her jilted husband and Chelsea could hook up to make their exes regret ever taking them for granted. And not for nothin’, but Rey and Chelsea would be one <em>gorgeous</em> couple.</p>
<p>Since he’s yet to put a ring on Phyllis’ finger, ex-fiancé Chelsea could float the idea of them entering into a, ahem, “return engagement.” As an added bonus of this possible pairing, we’d get Phyllis and Chelsea as singularly well-matched nemeses!</p>
<p>Chelsea could kill two birds with one stone by making a play for another of her ex-fiancés. (Yes, she’s had a few; don’t judge.) On one hand, she’d be sticking it to Adam by canoodling with his sworn enemy. And on the other, she’d be getting to spend more time with son Johnny.</p>
<p>The show seems to be positioning Sally as the former playboy’s new love interest. But he <em>actually</em> has more in common with Chelsea, from a challenging history with Adam to an occasional interest in giving up scheming. Just puttin’ it out there…</p>
<p>If anyone would understand what it feels like to be treated like an afterthought and binned with the garbage, it’s the Abbott family’s cast-out. Imagine the havoc that he and Chelsea could wreak if she brought him back to Genoa City as her new boo.</p>
<p>Since his fledgeling relationship with Elena is all but on life support in the wake of her tryst with old flame Devon, the doctor might eventually prescribe himself a little sexually healing. Who better to administer such a treatment than a similarly-brokenhearted Chelsea?</p>
<p>Blaming unstable Adam for ruining her life, Chelsea could seek revenge by <em>really</em> messing with his head — by seducing his married father! Oh, don’t scoff so fast — the Mustache has always had a thing for younger women. And Chelsea’s last husband was old enough to be <em>her</em> father!</p>
<p>What if Chelsea were to get outta Genoa City for a few weeks? The last time she did so, she returned with a new husband. Who’s to say that she couldn’t — or <em>wouldn’t</em> — do it again, this time by rushing down the aisle with Sharon’s ex-boyfriend? Stranger things have happened.</p>
<p>Sharon would see shades of red that she never before knew existed, were Chelsea to get even with her rival by making a boy toy of her son. And hey, it isn’t like characters don’t sleep their way up one side of family tree and down the other all the time.</p>
<p>We don’t wanna say that Chelsea’s a gold digger, but there <em>is</em> a certain lifestyle to which she’s become accustomed. And Katherine’s final husband would definitely be able to keep her in gladrags and bubbly. Plus, given his advanced age, forward-thinking Chelsea might figure that it wouldn’t be long before she was a very merry, very rich widow.</p>
