Well this is fantastic news! According to this week’s Soap Opera Digest Stacy Haiduk is returning as Patty Williams to The Young and the Restless.

SOD reports, “The actress is already taping scenes and will return to the canvas soon!”

Now, if you watched yesterday’s episode of Y&R you saw a Kitty cat tattoo! And we all know who has a fixation with kitties don’t we?

Just how will Patty figure into the story now? Stay tuned!

Really? I love Haiduk and her efforts, but this whole silliness was overdone and should just be finished for good.

Yay! I’m sooo excited! I love this show because u never know what’s next.

glad to se stacy back!!!
i think she killed diane……………

Well … shame on Y&R for bringing that phenomenal actress back just to have the murder of Diane Jenkins solved. Stacy Haiduk deserves so much more and so does the character of Patty Williams.

Welcome Back Stacy–Cool! 🙂

I have been hearing a lot of buzz that Stacy would reprise her fantastic work as Patty on Y&R and I AM SO EXCITED THAT IT’S A REALITY!!!!

Certainly she will be involved with the Diane murder, but PLEASE, PLEASE keep her on after the story wraps up. She is absolutely mesmerizing to watch as Emily/Patty. Fans rejoice!!! My favorite crazy broad (next to Phyllis) is back with a vengeance….. MEOW!!! 🙂

kalamaty – i love your MEOW!!!

Thanks, Michael! So exciting to see the scenes of Patty so far, and to know that Nikki is right behind her…. I have a feeling that Y&R’s November Sweeps are going to be kick ass! 🙂

YESSSSSS!!! Welcome back to Y&R Stacy, we LOVE you! Great to read this & even more excited to watch you today on the Canadian show! You’re a fantastic actress & you do an excellent job playing Patty. Love watching you work with Adam, you two make the best crooks together!

Why even ask which storyline will involve her? Helen Keller could see that Patty will be Diane’s murderer.

I like Haiduk but I really would have preferred some great surprise resolution to the storyline. We haven’t had a decent “twist” to a plot on this show for years. Either the twists are ridiculous (Jill Fenmore) or they were too obvious.

I like her I hope she’s back for long term.

I have been waiting for her to come back…I’m over the top excited for her return.

Great actress! So glad she’s back. I hope this means the character of Emily is back soon too. She and Jack were very sweet together.

BRILLIANT TWIST!! I love Patty and Stacy Haiduk!!!! plus, I never saw this coming!!!! so happy about it!

enough of Patty Williams. move on. Hate this Genivieve character too.

The storyline with Patty and Jack started in 1982. You mean to tell me, after all this time, she’s STILL in love with the guy??? UGH, this needs to come to a complete close once and for all. They should have left the Emily character around instead.

I, respectfully, disagree. The strength of Y&R – in my humble opinion, and as a viewer since the 1970’s – is built on these types of “core” relationships; the types of relationships that have endured for decades! Smart of the execs to always keep the past near while looking forward…. I would hope that most lovers of this show would agree. Either way, the Young and the Restless remains a record breaking television institution around the world…. and I couldn’t go a Monday thru Friday without it!

Kinda missed her in a twisted way lol it will be nice to have her back and I hope she has more speaking parts as she has a nice voice.

I love young and the restless. Lets move on and reveal Diane’s killer. The suspended is killing me.

I love Young and the Restless. Lets reveal Diane’s killer. The suspended is killing me!

I love Young and The restless. Who killed Diane! The wait is killing me.

Please no more Patty Williams.

Giovanni Mazza On Contract at General Hospital: What Are Your First Impressions?

This week, General Hospital introduced newcomer Giovanni Mazza in the role of Giovanni Palmieri, who apparently is Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) second cousin, one removed or so the story goes.

The character of Gio showed up at Brook Lynn’s wedding to Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and played the violin at the ceremony. As has been previously reported, Mazza in real-life is a professional violinist and actor.

Upon making his first appearance on the ABC daytime drama series back on May 15th, fans wondered if Gio will be sticking around and that was confirmed by the closing credits of the May 17th episode where Mazza’s name is included along with other contract players.

When the news of Mazza’s casting was announced, the talent young man took to his Instagram and shared the good news, expressing, “I am so honored, grateful, and ecstatic to announce the big news! The biggest thank you to General Hospital for bringing me.” He closed his sentiments with “So much love and joy to my new fam! YAY!!! ”

Commenting on his post included new castmates Evan Hofer (Dex) saying, “Happy to have you brother,” plus Tabyana Ali (Trina), Eden McCoy (Joss) and ABC executive Nathan Varni who said, “Congratulations! Welcome to GH!

During the May 17th episode, Gio had an exchange with Dex, where he mentioned that his father was in the military back in early 2000’s.  Previously, Gio revealed to Chase that his father died in the military when he was young. So this begs the question, who is Gio’s dad?

What were you first impressions of Giovanni Mazza in the role of Gio? Who do you think he might be romantically involved with and might be also related to other than the Cerullos? Comment below.
