Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maura West, who has played Carly Tenney on As the World Turns, has inked a deal with The Young and the Restless to play none other than Diane Jenkins!  Jenkins was last played by Susan Walters.  So while CBS viewers wil see the last of Maura as Carly on the finale of As the World Turns on September 17th, they won’t have to wait long for her to return to their screens, when she debuts as Diane on October 8th.  According to TV Guide Magazine who broke the news this morning, West starts taping at Y&R on September 1st.  

So what do you think?  Do you like that West is playing another recasted role on Y&R? Are you looking forward to seeing West mix it up with Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman the titans of the series, since Diane was involved and in love with Jack, but once married to Victor?  And, let’s not forget the sperm swithcheroo incident!  All thanks to Diane.

Stay tuned for more on this developing news item in the coming days ahead.

This is the best news since they recast Abby with MArcy Rylan. I cant wait to see Maura go toe to toe with Michelle Stafford.

I am thrilled with this news! Thought I was done with soaps and said I’d only watch one if either Maura West or Michael Park went to one. Well as you say, BINGO, I’ll now be watching Y&R. Hate that I’m losing Carly Tenney but so happy I’ll continue to see Maura West and her amazing talent. Hope you can get an interview with her soon Michael and get us more scoop. I hope she’ll be extremely happy in this new venture.

I hope she gets a decent role, Lizze from GL her character is annoying. Ben is good, and Shane. They desperately need some new blood over on B&B; getting real sick same old crap.

Well, this is surprising news! She didn’t wait too long to grab a role on Y&R. I don’t know why they are bringing back the character of Diane Jenkins. We have had enough of recurring characters. The only thing that is new is that the actor playing the role is someone else. I’m not sure I am liking it……..We will see…..Jack is too vulnerable right now. That means Emily will be going out of the picture. And where is Patty? They left her out in the wind…..I was hoping she would be coming back in enough time to convcict Adam..What… Read more »

Yes to all the above! I have been watching ATWT as far back as Chris Hughs, SR was there, probably most of the whole 50 years it has been on the air. Carly (Maura) can make me laugh, cry, whatever. I guess all of us imperfect people could identify with her character. I was so ticked that they keep taking the soaps off the air that, I actually sent CBS an email about it. I realize it is cheaper to put on an inane game show than to pay real actors but it doesn’t bring me to the TV every… Read more »

Three-Time Daytime Emmy Winner, Cady McClain, Reveals She’s ‘Back On Set’ But On Which Show?

After her Instagram post earlier this week, fans of Cady McClain have been attempting to dissect her cryptic tease of a message. McClain, a three-time Daytime Emmy winner, shared the good news with fans that she is ‘back to work’, except she didn’t share which show or project she is working on … just yet!

In her post, McClain teased: “Back on set! Fun to be working again on such a terrific show! Can’t wait to be able to share the news with you all soon! Meantime, hoping you are all taking good care of yourselves. Sending hugs!! ”

Now, it could be Cady is working on a primetime show, not a daytime show, but we shall see.

She has previously appeared on The Young and the Restless and Days of our Lives of the four remaining daytime soaps.  On Y&R she played Kelly Andrews, and on DAYS, Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  And, as viewers of the NBC soap saw this week, Jennifer (in a short appearance by Melissa Reeves) returned to Salem with Jack (Matthew Ashford), only to tie-up loose ends over the holidays and exit the show.

Since DAYS still tapes months ahead, could McClain be returning there, or might she pop up on GH and B&B? The character of Kelly was killed-off of Y&R back in 2015.

Previously, Cady became soap-famous for her roles as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children and Rosanna Cabot on As the World Turns.

Share your thoughts on which show you hope Cady is working on, whether, primetime, daytime, or a streaming series, in the comment section below.
