Doug: That’s not my job. I have only offered my opinion, when I couldn’t control my feelings. After 40 years, it’s not always easy to zip it shut. A daily show is a monster. I know how hard it is on everyone. We must all believe everyone is doing the best they can.
Doug: Do I have anything to say to my fans?? They are incredible!!! They have been my rock all 40 years. They have supported me, comforted me, enjoyed my wins, endured my losses and have never let me down. I have tried, with all my heart, to do the same for them, not only as ‘Paul’ but Doug too. You know, when you strip everything away, we are all just people. I have tried to be good people to them. They have most assuredly been good people to me. I can’t say enough about them, I so feel the love.
Doug: As I explained last night, The Young and the Restless has been my home for 40 years, hard to imagine anything else right now. Let me dust myself off, find my bootstraps and see what the future holds. I have faith, not always enough, but I ALWAYS get an answer when I ask for more. I’ve been blessed with so many things, my family, my friends, my job, our loyal viewers ...I am so grateful. Truly grateful. Thanks
