The rumors have finally been confirmed Andrea Evans is is returning to daytime and The Young and the Restless. Evans will show up in Genoa City as Tawny Moore, the trailer-trash mama she created on The Bold and the Beautiful in 1999. Evans’ return will last be for one episode which airs May 12.  What brings Tawny to Genoa City?  To find her daughter Amber, and according to this report from TV Guide Magazine, Tawny will duke it out with Phyllis, played by Michelle Stafford.  Here is an excerpt from Evans on the big catfight!

Evans on the Tawny vs. Phyllis Smackdown: ” It’ll be dueling redheads! Tawny and Phyllis are both strong, confrontational women and their scenes together are so much fun. It was great being back on my old stomping grounds. This brings together all of my favorite jobs—Y&R, B&B and, in a way, One Life to Live. The only thing missing here is Passions!”

I love Andrea Evans! Her return to Daytime was so hyped, and deservedly so when she portrayed Tawney. She stole all the scenes w/ ease between her and Frantz. Tawney was a lot more entertaining than Amber ever was! Remember all of Tawney’s gulps and deer in the headlights expressions whenever they’d almost get caught? She was such a fun piece of white trash, unlike Amber, who was just plain trashy and annoying!

It was so great when Tawney called Brooke a “mean grandma” when they first brought Little Eric back from Furnace Creek! And Brooke had a “You did not just call me grandma” expression on her face! LOL! The rivalry w/ Brooke was really good, and the funny part was everyone was fooled by Amber, including Steph, and only Brooke had her number! And remember how idiotic the writers were when all the characters found out Amber slept w/ Raymond? They all thought if the baby is white complexioned, it’s Rick’s! How stupid was Bell?

There were rumors they’d pair Tawney w/ Eric. Eric w/ a white trash Tawney, how great would that have been? Instead it was Amber this, Amber that. They had that fantastic scene w/ tawney living it up in the forrester mansion, lounging by the pool in her leopard print bathing suit. And Bell had to pin the baby switch on Tawney so Amber could be “redeemed”. How stupid of Bell to keep a hated char like Amber, while neglect a Daytime icon like Andrea Evans!

I guess this means Talk Soup fave Kyle Lowder is finally getting a storyline. Yuck! They need to recast Rick. I’d rather Tawney return to B&B instead of Amber, and there are too many women on B&B! They should remove Thomas, Oliver, Aggie, Donna and Rick if he’s portrayed by Lowder, to make room for Tawney. Let her steal Eric from Donna, and battle w/ Steph!

Bell is so dumb for keeping Frantz’s return unofficial. This is like the worst kept secret in Daytime. Frantz confirmed on a board she’s leaving Y&R for a show, Ashley jones tweeted she shared scenes w/ BLEEP and Frantz was in the freaking B&B cast party! Can they please reveal that Nick is Amber’s biological father? That’ll create more drama w/ Nick and Bridget, and make Tawney more neccessary on B&B.

I agree, the role Andrea Evans played as Tawny Moore was awesome. The scene
where she was lounging by the pool great. The bathing suit she was wearing was
not leopard print, it was some kind of sparkling print. Any way she looked absolutely gorgeous.

I think it is great that Andrea Evans, is returning to “The Young and The Restless.
Andrea Evans is a very beautiful and talented actress.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
