Here’s some inspired casting! Former American Idol runner-up and Broadway star, Diana DeGarmo has landed a contract role on the number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless!

According to TV Guide, “DeGarmo will be playing Angelina, the Jersey-girl daughter of mob boss Angelo (Mike Starr). The actress-singer starts shooting the CBS soap the week of September 22 and is expected to hit the air late October.”  Those will recall that Diana DeGarmo placed second to Fantasia in Season 3 of  American Idol in 2004. The talented singer/actress has since been busy  appearing in the Broadway productions of Hairspray and Hair, as well as the off-Broadway hit The Toxic Avenger.

So what will this mafia princess be doing in Genoa City? Who will she be after, linked with and why?

Umm-okay… good for her I guess but what is MAB thinking. We’ve got too many newbies on there already that are taking up airtime. They hardly have enough ideas to do anything with Eden, that chick Noah hangs out with, Heather, Sophia, and we hardly ever see Roxanne. We already have to contend with our canvas filled with newbie characters: Colin, Genevieve, Ronan, that girl Noah hangs with, Sam, and even Avery who I’m actually enjoying but seriously? Now we have to deal with Angelo having a bigger role. I mean wasn’t he connected to Jeffrey who we hardly see… Read more »

Probably has something to do with Devon’s music, and i wonder if the MOB connection could lead to storyline regarding Kevin/Gloria and-or Diane’s death?

I like Diana. I’ve seen her on Broadway, playing Sheila in “Hair.” She’s a very engaging actress and I hope that translates to the small screen.

Y&R fans, as an avid DAYS watcher who saw the show slip nito “unwatchable” with new people and old characters shoved to the back burner or turned unrecognizable, I feel your pain. I watch Y&R off and on and it is way off track. Victor Newman holding his son-in-law in a cell? That seems a bit silly to me.

I think MAB has gone absolutely mad!!!! Everytime Eden Riegel is on I cringed as with all the other newbies who gives a flying whoop about Angelo’s daughter I mean I did not even remember him.

Wasn’t every character you now love once a newbie? I’m disgruntled with the overall direction of the show but I won’t assume anything negative about Diana or her character. She might be one of the new people who stick. *shrug*

I’d rather the show not bother with creating Angelo’s daughter but I’m looking forward to seeing Diana anyway. She was my favorite years ago on idol and she’s fantastic on Broadway. I’m kind of excited to see her broaden her horizons and give soaps a try. I think she might be pretty good.

MAB – PLEASE review the old Y&R tapes of your father-in-law. I like change and new chararacters are good, but this is just TOO much!!! Are all of the daytime execs trying to kill their soaps?!

Why does this show have no direction? A mob princess now. Come on. What can the mob do that other newbies haven’t been able to do.

Will she somehow, SOMEHOW take out Adam? Doubt it.

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
