Soap fans who were thinking The Young and the Restless Nick’s (Joshua Morrow) ex-flame Grace Turner could be the key to just who Mariah (Camryn Grimes) is …  looks like they were right on the money!

At the end of today’s episode of the CBS sudser, Nick went to meet someone, and in the preview for tomorrow’s episode it was revealed to be Grace, and looking just how you remembered her …  in seductive lingerie!

That means than none other than The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jennifer Gareis (Donna) is back in Genoa City in a role she was last seen in back in 2004.

In story:  Nick is on a mission putting two and two together to find out just who this Cassie lookalike truly is, especially after listening back to Helen (Mariah’s supposed mother) conversation with Ian Ward (Ray Wise)!

Soap Opera Digest exclusively spoke to Gareis on her Grace Turner reprisal, and how she kept it a secret even from her good friend and longtime Y&R co-star Sharon Case (Sharon): “I didn’t say anything to anyone because they asked me not to.  I felt like, ‘Here I am keeping this secret and I can’t even tell my best friend!’  Then I thought, ‘She’ll know when she sees the script!’  When I have to keep a promise, whether it be work, my friends or family, I take it to the grave.”

So, what do you think happened?  Could it be that Grace knew that Sharon gave birth to twins and gave one of the babies away to get back at her for getting to be with Nick?  What secret does Grace hold?  Comment below!

This story would have worked for me if they had not aged Summer it would make Cassie/Mariah in her thirties. Oh well! I wish they would use JG over at Bold she is great and I for one could stand a little of her & Eric it would be a nice change of pace.

This is one of the few storylines I’m currently interested in on Y&R.

@MBmomof3 unfortunately me too so I DVR the show every now and then and get caught up in the nielsen count as if i’m watching on a daily basis. Those DARNED ratings tickers..JFP would be gone about now but the lady is savvy and she knows how to boost a rating every now and then while putting viewers to sleep or just off the show altogether.

Yes me too, I love Jennifer Gareis so much, She is a terrific actress and very pretty as well. I missed Grace so much, Too bad its only short term. I love her as Donna on the bold and The Beautiful. Maybe in the future, Jennifer can do both shows. This storyline looks very good, I am very interested.

I don’t know if there is any mystery here– it seems obvious that Mariah will turn out to be Sharon’s daughter– Cassie’s twin. Nurse Helen was most likely a member of Ian’s cult, who took one of the babies Sharon gave birth for some reason that won’t make any real sense, but will serve the purpose of making Mariah Sharon’s daughter.

I hope she is Cassie..
we have had to celebrate her death every year with a week or longer sob story of reliving her death, and then the same for every holiday and birthday, we had to relive Cassie’s death..
For years, every time Nick and Sharon were in 10 feet of each other they talked about Cassie..
So, hope its her so the decade/whatever amount of time )100yrs) of mourning her stops!!
And Sharon;s 15 minutes of sob time blubbering on at Cassie gave got old 9 years ago ..LOL
I hope they just get over with it/done … 🙂 ..

I think she is Cassie for some reason; when there was the daydream sequence about Nick the other day they didn’t kiss the camera cut away. I don’t know it’s just what I thought. It is the only good story right now although I am worried about my baby Neil Winters.

Now THAT was a spoiler I wasn’t expecting! Never leaked, and completely out of the blue!

WTG, casting people at Y&R … you kept THIS one under a rock long enough to pull off!

I agree. Loved the surprise!

If you have not seen the episode today you need to watch JG hit it out of the ballpark.

BTW, my personal take? Yes, Mariah is Cassie’s twin, but Helen was a nurse at the hospital where Sharon gave birth, then stole her away, probably saying or doing something that let others believe the baby died and no one bothered to tell Sharon she had a second child.

Then again, Alice had Cassie for years, remember? So there’s a probability for a second story, that Helen is her sister (another alcoholic, which Alice was, running around the bars and such for years) and knew that Sharon had given up her kids at birth, so she decided to take one for herself and the other went to Alice, her sister. Only Helen went the way of the cult, and Alice ended up giving Cassie back to Sharon by way of Grace and Tony, who went to Milwaukee to find out about Cassie.

Either way, bet Helen is related to Alice, and yes of course Mariah is Cassie’s twin sister…

Neil is soooo boring! They need to bring Drew back into his life. I think Mariah is Cassie too. Hey on B&B they brought Taylor back from the dead, it turned out that Prince Omar slipped into her room and took her body back to his palace and what-do-you-know…Taylor is alive! So why not Cassie. But I also agree that they would need to make Cassie character at least 28 – 30 due to Summer’s age. Also they are dragging the Phyliss thing out way to long. SMH

Yes I have been saying for years they need to bring back Drew. She is the only fit for Neil.

Hope JFP doesn’t ruin this story, like she did with Emily’s long lost twin on GH.

mk…that JFP basically RUINS EVERYTHING she touches!!!!! This will be NO DIFFERENT!!!!!

Bottom Line!!!!!!

Just got thru watching the episode and if they would start doing this every day I could get involved again. The music everything was spot on today. JG walked into the role again and never skipped a beat.


Tom Arnold to Guest Star on The Bold and the Beautiful

The Bold and the Beautiful is adding a new pilot to its cast of characters to fly the Forresters overseas this summer to Monte Carlo, and it’s none other than Tom Arnold.

According to US Weekly, Arnold will appear in two upcoming episodes of the CBS soap opera airing at the end of July.  In story, Arnold will play the Forrester’s new pilot named Captain Deuce Stevens.

Arnold said of working with the B&B actors and crew, “It was great fun. People love The Bold and the Beautiful. The loyalty, the fans, the opinions … I started going online and listening to fans argue about certain things. It’s like sports.”

In the scenes, Ridge (Thorsten Kaye), Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) head back overseas to relaunch the iconic, Brooke’s Bedroom fashion line for Forrester Creations.

One of the more hilarious behind the scenes moment Arnold shared, was with now two-time Daytime Emmy-winning actor, Thorsten Kaye: “I was in makeup and this guy comes in and goes, ‘Hey, can I get you anything?’ I go, ‘I don’t know, do you have Sugar Free Red Bull?’ This guy who I thought was the crew — he had a very hard handshake — was Thorsten. The rich, wealthy father.”

As a preview of one of his scenes, Steffy will be running late to the flight and cannot locate her passport. Tom shared, “One thing that is true is you have a window to land at the airport. And if you mess around and you’re late, you will miss that (window). I like when there’s some reality to this stuff. It heightened the scene because Steffy forgot her passport.” Look for MacInnes Wood to pull off some “I Love Lucy-esque” moments.

Arnold added, “You expect (the drama) for a character, but it opens the doors for some hilarious stuff. It’s very funny because things are so dramatic that it lends itself to comedy.”

B&B is not Tom’s first foray into soaps, having previously appeared on General Hospital in the 90’s. He spoke on how he and ex-wife Roseanne Barr (who also appeared on GH as Jennifer Smith), were into daytime dramas, “Roseanne and I loved soap operas. (After I was on General Hospital), we ended up having all these folks on (Roseanne]) from the show, because soap operas are very good actors. They don’t mess around.”

Look for Arnold’s episodes to air on B&B on Tuesday, July 30th and Wednesday, July 31st.

So, what are your thoughts on Tom Arnold coming to B&B? What do you think of his respect for soap opera actors? Comment below.

The Young and the Restless’ Michael Mealor Says of Summer/Kyle/Claire Storyline, “It’s Going to Get Nasty”

On CBS Daytime’s The Young and the Restless, Kyle (Michael Mealor) seems to be spending more time with Claire (Hayley Erin) much to the chagrin of Summer (Allison Lanier). All this has gone down since little Harrison was held captive along with Claire by Jordan (Colleen Zenk) and rhe

While Summer has told her concerns over and over to Kyle, that she doesn’t like Claire getting so close to the little boy, Kyle seems to be somewhat smitten with Claire, or is he?

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Michael Mealor on the red carpet at last week’s 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards to get his thoughts on this possible love triangle, or as the popular Aretha Franklin tune says, “Who’s Zoomin Who?” Can anyone be trusted?

Mealor revealed that coming up on Y&R between Summer, Claire and Kyle that, “It’s going to get nasty. I gotta say that. No one trusts anyone, which makes good TV.”

To that end, it looks like no one in the Abbott family trusts Kyle either, to which Mealor replied, “Jack (Peter Bergman) doesn’t trust Kyle. Summer doesn’t trust Kyle. Diane (Susan Walters) doesn’t trust Kyle. Claire may be the only one, and I (may) have her fooled.”

Fans have been speculating that Claire isn’t the now “good’ girl she seems to be and that her psychotic tendencies may take over. Mealor says, “That’s a testament to Hayley (Erin) and how amazing she is because she plays this lovable character, but you just kind of go, something may be off here.”

Recently, Y&R aired the two-person episode featuring Kyle’s on-screen dad, Peter Bergman and Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) where Jack tries to get Nikki to stop her bender and sober up, but ultimately loses his own sobriety and almost loses his life. Mealor shared he saw the unbelievable performances when it was being filmed.

Michael expressed, “God, that’s such a fantastic episode. They showed up for that and they filmed that over two days –  split the episode in half. I was there on set shooting other scenes, but just watching them pour it out on the monitor. It was incredible.”

Watch our red carpet conversation with Michael Mealor below.

Now weigh-in; Do you think Claire will ultimately take to underhanded tactics to get Kyle and Harrison in her clutches and away from Summer? Let us know your theories via the comment section.
