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.

REPORT: Tony Morina and Josh Griffith IN As New Y&R EP and Head Writer?

Now that Mal Young is out at the number-one soap opera, that left the executive producer and head writer positions open.  But according to a report from Daytime Confidential, Y&R has replaced Young with two veterans of the soap genre.

First, the report says the new EP will be Anthony “Tony” Morina who has been with Y&R since 2004.  Morina has also produced and worked on Santa Barbara, Sunset Beach, Port CharlesGeneral Hospital and All My Children.

Second, Josh Griffith (Pictured here) will take over the head writing duties.  As many know, Griffith had been with Y&R several times in soap career.  He was Co-EP from 2006-2008, and named head writer two other times in 2007-2008 and 2012-2013.

Y&R has had several changes at the top now over the last few years:  Mal Young took over from when Sally Sussman and Kay Alden departed, and their tenure was short lived.

So, how do you think Y&R will look and feel under this new regime if confirmed? Who would you like to see come back to Genoa City and exit Genoa City? Comment below.

Mal Young Exits As Executive Producer and Head Writer At The Young and the Restless

As many had predicted, Mal Young is gone from The Young and the Restless as the series executive producer and head writer.

Young confirmed his departure from the show via ShowBiz411.com with a statement “Just arrived in London for the holidays. I felt like it was a good time to move on. Never a good idea to get too settled on a long running soap and I achieved all that I and CBS set out to do: improved scripts and production values. I have a project of my own that I’ve been developing and want to pursue that now. Plus running a show like this is all consuming and want to get a bit of my life back – and see my family occasionally!”

Ratings for the top-rated series have been down since Young has been in charge, and in addition, several fan favorites given less airtime, or dropped from the show, while plenty of newbies brought to the canvas.

So, what do you think of the exit of Mal Young from Y&R? Comment below.
