‘Young And Restless’ Tracey E. Bregman To Hawk Cosmetic Line On HSN

June 21, 2011

Daytime soap operas may be a dying breed, but they’ve given birth to a new makeup line on HSN.

HSN is selling a line called Jabot Cosmetics, which is actually the same name as a company on “The Young and The Restless.” Tha July issue of Allure magazine has an article, with the headline “The Young and the Made-Up,” on Page 54 about the makeup.

According to that story, the Jabot makeup “will include sweatproof ingredients that stand up to hot lights and pigments developed to look natural on HDTV.”

It appears that actress Tracey E. Bregman, who plays Lauren Fenmore on the soap, will be the designated pitcher for the Jabot makeup.

“Jabot Cosmetics: Every woman wants to be the star of her own story,” HSN says on its website. “Inspired by the award-winning daytime drama ‘The Young and the Restless,’ Jabot Cosmetics is a line of skin care and makeup used on-set by the actresses on the show.”

Young and Restless actress Tracey E. Bregman will be pitching Jabot Cosmetics on HSN.

Here is Bregman’s bio from the soap’s site:

Tracey E. Bregman, who portrayed department store heiress Lauren Fenmore on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS from 1983-1995, returned to the role in 2001. She also crossed over to play the same character on the daytime drama “The Bold and the Beautiful” from 1995-1998 and again in 2004. Lauren is married to Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) and they have a son, Fen. Lauren was shocked to learn that Jill Abbott is her long-lost half sister.

Bregman received a Daytime Emmy in the category of Outstanding Younger Leading Actress for her role on “Y&R” in 1985. She was the first recipient to be awarded in this category, and was again nominated in 1987. In 2006 and 2008 she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Born in Munich, Germany, Bregman lived in London, England until the age of 10 before settling in Southern California. She studied acting with Francis Lederer at American National Academy of Theater Arts and at the Lee Strasberg Institute, and currently studies with Gene Bua and Ivana Chubbuck.

Bregman began her acting career with the role of Donna Temple Craig on the daytime drama “Days of Our Lives.” Other television credits include the after-school special “The Girl with E.S.P.,” and the telefilms “Three on a Date” and “Sex and Mrs. X.” She was a series regular on “Second Family Tree” with Ann Archer and James Spader, and guest-starred in the series “The Fall Guy,” “Gavilan,” “Fame” and “The Love Boat,” as well as the Canadian series “The Littlest Hobo.” She has also appeared in four feature films.

Bregman has co-written a children’s book called “When I Dream…” with dear friend and award-winning writer and lyricist, Toni Bull Bua. The book is now a musical for Broadway. This year she was honored with a Spirit Award by the Young Musicians Foundation. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Ronald Recht, and they have two sons, Austin and Landon.

QVC jewelry vendor Mark Zunino, who is also a fashion designer, dressed Bregman for the recent Daytime Emmy Awards in Las Vegas.

He posted on Facebook that Bregman was “wearing my nude Italian beaded gown with ostrich feathers.”
