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.

Yep! I knew this was coming. Its bad enough we have Chelsea to deal with but we have to deal with mommy to! Both can go back to Hazzard County!

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.

Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment said in a stateement: “Angelica McDaniel championed our daytime series line up with creativity, passion and energy and broke new ground by helping launch the Network’s first daytime talk show in years while respecting the long history and tradition of the dramas and game shows. We appreciate her many contributions and wish her well on her next endeavors.”

GMA’s Lara Spencer Says, “I Screwed Up” As She Apologizes For Insensitive Prince George Ballet Joke

After a major backlash, Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer apologized Monday morning on-air during the ABC morning show, over comments she made last week over now six-year-old Prince George taking ballet classes.

In her apology, Spencer told GMA viewers: “I screwed up.  The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid, and I am deeply sorry.”

Several key figures in the dance community spoke out following her remarks, and Spencer herself also spoke to them over the last few days telling viewers: “I have listened, I have learned about the bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

From there, a previously recorded group interview Spencer conducted with three male dancers; Robbie Fairchild (Cats), Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Fabrice Calmels (Joffrey Ballet), was shown as each expressed their personal journey and often the humiliation they felt as young boys when they were laughed at and made fun of because of dance.

All of this was kicked off by Spencer making a comment during the Thursday ‘Pop News’ segment on GMA, in which she talked about Prince George’s  “curriculum”.

Lara said in her commentary: “In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things.” She then paused which gave way to chortles in the audience and went on to say: “Prince William says Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts. I mean, he might! He might end up … Between the religious studies and the computer programming, I just want to go back to the Play-Doh!”
