More returns slated for The Young and the Restless as they re-position the show.  Now comes word that Catherine Bach is due back as Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) money-grubbing, grifter mother, Anita Lawson.

In story, viewers have met the character of Calvin Boudreau (John Burke) this week, and are being cued into the back-story that Chelsea’s mother was first into Chelsea’s current hubby, so it makes sense that Anita would be back on the canvas.

The former Daisy Duke of The Dukes of Hazzard came on to The Young and the Restless back in 2012.

According to TV Insider, Catherine will be back on-screen as Anita come the August 8th episode of the CBS daytime drama series.

So, what do you think the return of Anita means for Chelsea et al? Comment below.

That’s great. Clearly, Calvin is as sinister as they come. That was evident today when he met Nick.Calvin going up against Adam is going to be fierce!! Anita saw him first so you know he’s trash. I bet tomorrow Nick puts Rey on the hunt to find out all about Calvin but I think Kevin is the one who will help bring him down. Rey is pretty useless. Looking forward to the fireworks!

I was wondering yesterday if Anita would return. Glad to see she will!

There’s definitely something off about Chelsea and Calvin’s relationship, so maybe Anita’s return can fill in some blanks. It’s very odd seeing Chelsea interact with Calvin, who looks old enough to be her father. And let alone nuAdam! Mark Grossman looks like he could be John Burke’s grandson! Very jarring thinking that Chelsea was involved with both Adam and Nick, and is now married to someone twice their age.

Gosh, if they really want the old people back, I’d say bring back Gloria, and maybe she can help Michael with his hair problem. I have a hair stylist friend that also watches the show, who is appalled at the way he looks. She says it should be trimmed at the very least. Does poor C.L not have a mirror or a say so as to how he looks on National TV?

Most of us know that, and the point is that it shouldn’t be that obvious. It should be styled accordingly.

Oh, great……

I can’t wait to hear that rich adenoidal twang she gives to every badly delivered line. Seriously, Show, you’ve got that much money to waste?

I think maybe three people wanted Chelsea back on the screen one of them was JM ! Lord what a train wreck MS is not a youngster anymore embarrassing to watch her play sexy and never hire a boy to do a mans job and I think MG I had possibilities but not as Adam

I want Mal Young back. Relying on returns from the dead and bringing back so many old characters signals a total lack of creativity of the new headwriter.

So glad to see campy, trashy, boisturous Anita back on the canvas. I once heard she dropped out of acting completely at one point, to care for her special needs child? Someone fact check me. Casting directors should be commended for her giving her a second chance at her acting career.
