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.

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

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!

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.

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 🙂 🙂

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

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.

Sandra Bridges

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]

Mo

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.

Elite Advisors

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.

Mo

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

Susan

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.

andrew hass
andrew hass

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.

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!

On the latest episode of the Inside Salem: Days of our Lives Podcast, Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) chats with host. Michael Fairman as Brady’s story hits a major turning point!  As DAYS fans know, Brady recently hit the sheets with “Nicole” who was Kristen in disguise.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

DWTS new EP Andrew Llinares, then said in a statement. “We’ve got a great and diverse cast. We are excited about the season,”

You can see Bergeron’s tweet in full below.

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
