Great news this afternoon was shared by Camryn Grimes who after being killed-off The Young and the Restless years ago as the beloved Cassie Newman, returned this year as bad girl Mariah!

According to a tweet from the talented actress herself, “You spoke, they listened. Officially under contract for #YR!!”  Immediately following her tweet, fans and colleagues have been offering Camryn their congratulations.

So, it looks like Mariah is staying around for quite some time to come in Genoa City! And the looming question is still to be answered, why does Mariah look identical to Cassie?   Do you think Sharon gave birth to twins and never knew about it?  Or, is this just a case of amazing plastic surgery?  What do you think about the news that Camryn is staying put? Comment below!

She’s a good actress and the show goofed when they killed her off, I’m glad she’s back on contract now and I’m looking forward to see the story progress, it’s the most interesting plot right now and I’m sure Mariah’s connection to Ian will be very intriguing to see play out

Hope she turns out to be a twin of Cassie! Sharon had twins when she was a teenager and one was adopted out, possibly Sharon’s Mother(Doris) knew and has kept it a secret and it will come out now!

Actually Cassie was given up for adoption- she came back into Sharon’s life as a little girl when her caretaker Millie got too old to take care of her when her adopted mother had abandoned her. So it is feasible she had twins and were adopted by two different families.

well..looks like young and restless has finally done something right,,,

It is strange but exciting to see Camryn Grimes playing another character who is the late Cassie Newman’s doppelganger.

I hope Sharon has a daughter and this is the twin of Cassie. Sharon deserves to be happy

I agree with you. I’m tired of Sharon being sick she needs to be happy

Wow u r on a role!


We all have ‘doubles’ in the world. So, not even with plastic surgery, it is possible. And not twins please in a plot to come. It too old a writer’s device on daytime dramas.
Sincere congratulations to Camryn as she is a very strong actor and even was as a child actor. I’m glad about this addition to the cast under contract.

Congratulations, Camryn! I loved you as Cassie and even though you’re playing a bad girl now, I love you as Mariah.

I am so happy she is staying. I hope it will turn out to be that she is a long lost twin of Cassie’s. The chemistry between Nick,Sharon and Mariah is electrifying. She is the issuing link for them. I think it would make a great story line!

I like the evil twin idea, hope they go with it!

Very happy about this. Camryn shouldve never left y&r. Worst decision to kill her off. Best to bring her back!

I agree i think its going to end up that sharron had twins and one was taken at birth and put up for adoption i also think rh writers need to be reading these post for story lines.

I love this actress. She can play any part they give her. Congratulations Camryn. You may be playing a bad person right now but I have a feeling after being around Sharon & Nick you’ll change. Your not all bad because you got off the plane to see if Sharon was alright. At last something good is coming on to that show.

Righting a wrong! Excited to see this news and where this character goes.

Ohh my gawd!
If it will stop the yearly 2 week long celebration of Cassie’s death we have to suffer through every year for over a decade, then I welcome her..
They should make a monument of dead Cassie and put in opening and have it over with…
for over a decade it is all Sharon and Nick have to talk about every time they are near each other is dead Cassie..
Hopefully it will now stop 🙂 🙂

Thought I was alone in feeling that way.

I totally AGREE- and I am tired of them bringing all these characters back that left. Leave it alone!

The character Cassie died in May of 2005, so you haven’t been watching the anniversary for OVER a decade– it might have felt that way to you, but it hasn’t even been 10 years in real time. LOL.

A decade is 10 years I was off a year or less..

But right!
It seems like a 100 years of dead Cassie .. lol

You’re funny suOOOO…on a different topic you write how some of us bitch and whine about the soaps we watch then you do the same about Y&R…so welcome to the club…lmao!!!


Congrats to Camryn for getting a contract.I’m taking this to mean that the show has big plans for the character of Mariah.Plus it wouldn’t surprise me if it turns out Mariah is Cassie’s twin by Sharon or maybe another daughter of Cassie’s biological father and that would make her and Cassie half sisters.

I am thrilled that she is back and was so unhappy that they had killed off her character. She can spice things up some because some of the story lines have become redundant. Welcome Back!

Glad Camryn is staying. She is a good actress, & there is the possibility of some interesting storylines.

So happy. She is a great actress. Now if only they listened to the fans and bring back Michael Muhney I’m sure the ratings will go back up!

Thank God! The girl [Woman] can act! Get her away from Tyler and create a triangle with Noah and Courtney! [I know, its weird]

They need to spruce up the story. I do not get Mariah and Tyler together. Granted, there’s no chemistry between Abby and Tyler so it’s no different with Ty and Mariah. Another lackluster story.

I think the issue is Tyler…. he is easy on the eyes but there’s no excitement or passion…he READS his lines and that’s about it.

Exactly. He’s monotone. We need more than a pretty face. Or great abs.

I am very happy to see that Camryn is back. She’s a great actress and deserves to be back on the show. I am so hoping that she is the unknown twin of Cassie. Even though she’s a bad girl now Y & R has usually done a good job of redeeming the bad ones and I hope she’s one. Look how they redeemed Michael Baldwin, Kevin and Adam. Hopefully there’s one more coming.

TWINS. Sharon specifically said years ago she never saw Cassie at birth so… this Mariah nonsense should be nonsense or maybe Frank had a daughter?

Best decision since they killed her off for no reason. She is the only actress in her age group that can act.

I think it’ll be revealed that Mariah is Frank’s daughter but by another woman.So that means Cassie and Mariah were half sisters.Plus then the show could bring on Mariah’s mother later.Plus Sharon not been Mariah’s mother could open up romantic possibilities between Noah and Mariah down the line if the show goes that route.

love the Mariah/ nick/ Sharon/ storyline. riveting. Adding Ian and tyler/abby keeps the momentum going. rederic williams is a young shemar moore with so much potential, I hope camyrn can bring out the best in him.Ian is the best new real villain since Sheila carter. if only Carmine can come back somehow!!!

She is one of the quadruplets that Sharon gave birth to! The other two show up during November sweeps!!! That’s not all! Sharon really isn’t Sharon! A switch was made during the delivery!! Sharon’s twin sister is who we see. Sharon gave birth to triplets and all tho cousins are identical!!! Sharon is in an underground cell at the ranch!!!!

This is perfect, and the second of two big casting “rights” this year.

Since Miller WANTED to leave, it was brilliant bringing the ORIGINAL Billy back.

And now Phelps finally realized that she can’t keep talent without a CONTRACT.

Hopefully she’s learning what it takes to measure up when you’re at Daytime’s number 1 show. Keep watching those YouTube clips Jill and LEARN. This isn’t Santa Barbara.

Yes, well said!

Loving camryn grimes as faux cassie/mariah!!! FINALLY JFP DID SOMETHING RIGHT. Tthis girl needs to have a contract and stay on y&r, this storyline is the only one carrying the soap right now! Agreed that if only MM can come back along with BM and a decent phyllis we can have a great canvas.

Camryn is such a refreshing actress to the show lately.. So glad she’s getting a contract. Itt was much needed. They should have even brought her back sooner. I’m bracing myself for Nuadam….. No one can replace Muhney, and they know that so just bring him back already!!! Missing miller, sttafford and soon chloe 🙁 Honestly they should bring back some of the old characters at least for guest appearances like they do with ashley.

I am so happy Camryn Grimes is back to stay!!! I was so upset when she left the show in 2005. It’s like a miracle that she’s back. I really look forward to this story with Mariah. This is great!

Sharon gave birth to twins and did not know it will come out in the future storyline


REPORT: Matthew Atkinson Back to The Bold and the Beautiful

When we last saw The Bold and the Beautiful’s Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), he headed out of Los Angeles with his son, Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) and headed to Paris. The decision to leave was prompted by Hope (Annika Noelle) turning down his marriage proposal once again, and by prodding from his sister, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

Many Thope fans have wanted to see Hope and Thomas reunite and figure out where to take their relationship next, but he has been nowhere insight, and so has his portrayer, Matthew Atkinson.

However, in a new report from Soap Hub, their sources indicate that Atkinson will be back on screen next month by mid-June. In a tease, Atkinson posted a photo on his Instagram story (which has since disappeared, since IG story posts only stay up for 24 hours), where he was pointing at a TV screen behind him that showed Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) and Eric (John McCook) in a scene. No telling the true meaning of that snap, but it could be he is back at the show.

As Hope and Finn (Tanner Novlan) are getting closer, the timing could just work out in the most dramatic way if Thomas were to return. Since Hope and Finn are bonding over their parents, Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) and Deacon’s (Sean Kanan), upcoming nuptials, will the doctor and the designer hit the sheets and Thomas walks in on it?

Now let us know, when Thomas returns do you want to see him reconcile things with Hope, or do you want him back to the obsessed Thomas of the past who hatched plots to get what he wanted? Comment below.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.


The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.
