The Young and the Restless will be having an on-screen throwback, of sorts, when Telma Hopkins appears as in the role of Denise Tolliver, a private detective who reveals shocking information about the past of Amanda Sinclair (Mishael Morgan).

Hopkins will share scenes with Bryton James, making it the first time they have worked together since they appeared on the classic sitcom, Family Matters. She will also share scenes with Mishael Morgan.

Family Matters originated on ABC from 1989-1997, before moving to CBS from fall of 1997 to the summer of 1998.  In it, Bryton played “Richie” Crawford the son of Hopkins’ Rachel Crawford.

According to EW.com, look for the former Tony Orlando and Dawn singer to arrive in Genoa City for multiple episodes on June 1st.

Telma also recently appeared on Netflix’d Dead to Me, and has appeared on comedies such as: Bosom Buddies, Gimme a Break and Half and Half.

So, what do you think of this clever bit of casting on Y&R? Did you watch Bryton and Telma on Family Matters? Comment below.

Can’t wait to see her. I don’t remember her on Family Matters but did enjoy Tony Orlando and Dawn.
Aside, this SL with Amanda is looking more interesting and to me looks like her father was killed because he was looking for his baby, so maybe her grandfather did have him killed.

I can’t wait, for some new drama!!! I also don’t remember seeing them on Family Matters, but I definitely remember Tony Orlando and Dawn… And I too think that Amanda’s grandfather had her dad killed…

wow- that’s young Devon- fun to see.
I never heard of Family Matters nor Tony or Dawn.I don’t know who many these people mentioned are, but that’s usually common for me lol
I like the stand-in Amanda better than the regular one. I’d like her to stay on as Amanda ..
Yes! Amanda’s father was killed/murdered by Amanda’s grandfather, that’s obvious.

Hi SuOOO
I prefer this gal playing Hilary now, but I kind of like the other one with Devon better. Does that make sense? Also, her whole family seems guilty. I can’t stand that sister and her mother.
Boy, Kyle has sure landed himself in a pile of poo, to put it nicely. That bunch are all bad news. They will have to pry them out of the Abbot house. For once I am feeling sorry for Summer dealing with them AND Sally.

Yes I did and I also enjoyed Ms. Hopkins’ singing with The Tony 0rlando and Dawn. I am so glad that Bryton James and the doctor character are together. I remember her from General Hospital and I think that they make a perfectly loving couple.

I stopped being able to watch Y&R months ago because the writing and stories have been so painfully bad, but I’ll tune in for this!

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.
