Longtime favorite Lauralee Bell (Christine) is heading back for a return engagement to The Young and the Restless for a series of episodes starting November 9th ( in the middle of sweeps) that will be, according to TV Guide exclusively ” packed with juicy flashbacks — circa 2001-03 — featuring Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria, who got her start on Y&R as Isabella, the ex-wife of Paul, who made Christine’s life hell!

Many recall that Longoria played, Isabella Braña,who got pregnant by Christine’s husband, Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), and later faked her death and tried to frame Christine for the murder! Later the “dead” Isabella showed up one night and tried to drown Chris in the bathtub.

So what is the tie-in? Wel,l naturally the character of Ricky Williams played by sexy newcomer, Peter Porte.  Clearly, there is something up with this guy’s appearance in Genoa City and there has got to be more than meets the eye. So to get this mystery moving, Y&R needs to give the viewers a refresher course …  enter Lauralee and the drama goes on from there!

Wow! I sort of knew that Y&R was going to do something along these lines when Ricky returned to town. There was just no way that Ricky would show up and there wouldn’t be anything to really back up why Ricky came back to Genoa City. Smart move by Y&R.

Wonder if this has anything to do with Ricky’s sister Heather’s exit from the show…

Awesome! Will be a great way to bring in new viewers! Love that Cricket is coming back… just hope she doesn’t run into Phyllis, or the “BUG” is going to get squashed for kissing Nick at Jimmy’s last year! 🙂 I wanna see that catfight!!

If I was Maria Bell I would be a little concerned with showing flashbacks then you will see how really bad this show has become.

What’s the chances of Eva coming back for a while. I love her on Y&R. She was great as crazy. I too wish the show was as good now as it was then. I’ve been watching for a long time. I’m afraid Y&R will go bay the way of AMC and OLTL sad to lose all our soaps.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
