As previously announced, The Young and the Restless has cast season three American Idol runner-up Diana DeGarmo to hit Genoa City to play the new role of Angelina, the Jersey daughter of mob boss, Angelo Venziano!  TV Guide caught up with DeGarmo, whose Y&R debut is set for Monday, October 31st, Halloween!

Now DeGarmo’s  alter-ego has several differences than her.  But one of the most obvious – she can’t sing!  Plus, we learn that Angelina will develop a mad crush on Kevin Fisher (Greg Rikaart).   Here are a few Jersey-licious excerpts from the interview below!

DeGarmo on if Angelina is complete comic relief for the series:  “Well, she’s an over-the-top, gum-smacking, tone-deaf princess whose hair is as large as her attitude. [Laughs] And I’m having a blast! Angelina believes she’s Barbra Streisand mixed with Celine Dion and her father — who thinks his spoiled-brat daughter sings like a choir of angels — really puts the pressure on Devon [the young music producer played by Bryton James] to show her the ropes and make her a success. It’s fantastically hilarious because it puts the poor kid in a horrible predicament!”

DeGarmo on Angelina’s crush on Kevin Fisher! “Ooh, she wants him bad! Angie has her eyes, her heart and her body set on landing Kevin — and it scares him to death! He’s just so sweet and nervous and Angelina loves preying on him. She loves seeing him squirm. Greg and I can’t stop laughing during our scenes together.”

DeGarmo on how it is harder to sing bad, than it is good, and if eventually Angelina will get more on key throughout her story:  “It’s true! It’s actually much harder than people realize. But it’s really liberating to get out there and be bad. You just throw your ego to the wind and sing for Jesus.  We’re seeing where this goes. That’s the beauty of this kind of show — it’s a living, breathing thing and it can change at any time, which I think is beautiful.

So now that you have heard the lowdown on Angelina, are you looking forward to seeing her on the canvas? Let us know.

Seeing mob and Y&R together reminds me of a stoyline from once upon a time… early 1980s. It was when Paul had his buddies Jazz and such working with him… I think the actor was Phil Morris, andhe had to pass for white, to go undercover and romance the daughter to upend a mob kingpin… the storyline played out for a long time, building then unfoldionglayer by layer… IT WAS FRIGGIN’ AWESOME. I miss that kind of story flow and plotting.

We need something in the show besides the doom and gloom of sick children and who killed Diane — hope they solve that mystery soon. Looking forward to seeing some good comedy, should be fun.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
