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.

Chandler Massey Talks The Emotional Life Of Will Horton; Rob Scott Wilson & Victoria Konefal Share Insight On Key Scenes On ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast’

Viewers of Days of our Lives recently watched Will (Chandler Massey) cross over to the light as he hovers near death, and sees his great grandma Caroline (Peggy McCay).  While happily Will survives, Caroline did not.  And through Will’s trauma of surviving a brain tumor, fans were treated to touching scenes between Chandler Massey and his on-screen love interest Freddie Smith (Sonny).

In addition, Will had the difficult task, at the time, to have to tell his beloved grandmother, Marlena (Deidre Hall) that he was dying in more moving and emotional scenes.  So what did Chandler Massey have to share about all the drama? Check out the latest episode of Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast and find out!

With June being Pride Month in many cities in the U.S. and countries around the world, Chandler also weighs-in on the importance of Will as an LGBTQ character on the canvas on television, and in particular, on daytime.  In this podcast, Chandler relates how it’s been amazing to make a difference to people and their lives.  He shares the story of how a man told him in a letter that he watched Days of our Lives with his mother and through watching the storyline; where Will came out to Marlena, how it inspired him to have that conversation with his own mother at that time.  He thought his mother would not understand or accept him, but because she watched Days and saw Will’s journey to come out, she supported her son and who he was.  As Chandler explained, it was confirmation that the story was helping people.

Later, #Cin fans get a treat when Rob Scott Wilson and Victoria Konefal sit-down on the podcast and offer up commentary on some of their most recent and pivotal scenes.  Rob and Victoria take us through cabin fires and police station scenes, and their on-screen love story – a must listen for viewers who are rooting for this duo against all odds in Salem.
