More casting news out of Genoa City, The Young and the Restless has cast Noemi Gonzalez in the role of Rey’s (Jordi Vilasuso) estranged wife, Mia.

Look for Mia to hit the canvas on the upcoming November 12th episode of the number one daytime drama series.

If Gonzalez looks familiar, she appeared on the Hulu series East Los High as well as in Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, Rosewood, DARK/WEB and more.

With Rey’s burgeoning attraction to Sharon (Sharon Case), just what will happen when Mia comes in to the story?

Soap Opera Digest broke the casting news.  While Vilasuso welcomed Noemi with a tweet “Yes!” Welcome to Genoa City, Noemi!”

So, what do you think of Y&R beefing up more of the Rosales clan and Rey’s back-story? Comment below.

Let me say first, I am beginning to enjoy Rey and Lola. But,is it really necessary to bring his wife on now? We barely know anything about Rey and his story with Sharon is just beginning. So, another newcomer is introduced? Before i am slammed, I like newbies and i know they are necessary for the continuation of a show. But, not at rapid fire and again, not at the expense of established characters.

They are much cheaper than a character that has been on scene for 41 years. No offence to Doug D. but the budget is driving these exits.

I think the idea to introduce Ray’s wife now could possibly be due to Abby and others interest in Ray’s background, and the fued with his brother Arturo.Methinks something happened with this woman and the two brothers.Maybe she was with Arturo first and Rey interferred, or Arturo came between Rey and his wife.I remember Rey asking Arturo if he’d told Abby what he’d done. I like both these men,and hate to find out,one is really a dog!

Noemi Gonzalez/Mia is very pretty and so far it’s hard to picture her as Rey’s wife..
Looking forward to the New stories.
I am a fan of the Rosales family, they are new and refreshing.
It didn’t mention how long ‘Mia’ will be with Y&R..
Is she a short stint or long time?

Enough already. Slow down the build up until we leave all of them!

Enough with the newbies, Mal Young needs to be fired, send the sob back to the UK. He is killing Y&R. I do like Lola, she is my favorite new character. Get rid of Nate and the boring Tessa. Bring back Nina Webster and Sheila Carter. Amen. You

They are determined to shove Rey, etc. down our throats. NO. THANK. YOU. I am not interested in Rey, Arturo, Lolo, their background, sibling rivalry, or exes. I’ll be tuning out after Eileen’s exit.

Looks like we got a Telenova going on here! Hopefully she can give Arturo and Rey acting lessons!

One of the best writers in the industry Douglas Marland always said be slow introducing new characters so the audience can care about them don’t make characters that people love and have been on the show a long time do stupid stuff that’s out of character. I am shocked that MY has been given free reign but I believe the Bells sold their rights. Doug was on recurring since Jan I think he got kicked to the curb because of social media I could have written for him I think he got a raw deal

Let’s just call this what it is: Y&R is no longer a predominantly rich, WHITE person show, and many people can’t handle it. There is no way that Paul Williams, Cristine, Nina, or Sheila (for the 800th time) were EVER more interesting than the new characters. NEVER. The reactions are more offensive than the show. OK. let’s see Billy and Syphilis MORE instead; that’s really an improvement. Let’s see Grandpa Mumbles cross his arms as a substitute for acting and watch him yell at Nikki and Jack MORE. GMAFB.

I love this comment. If soaps have any chance of surviving (which seems unlikely) they have to feature more than rich, white people. Yes, a lot of new characters are being introduced quickly — but Y&R is pretty far behind in the diversity game so it has a lot of ground to make up.

I love Mia in TY&TR. I don’t care what the nationality of the actor is as long as they can act. I don’t think Arturo or Tessa can act or bring anything to the show. Phyllis can act but please give her a better storyline. I don’t like her BULLY storyline.

I COMPLETELY AGREE! Phyllis is such a billy that is never made accountable for her actions. Tessa is boring and Mia is an embarrassment to all latinas.

Mia Rosales needs to be fired. She is a terrible actress.

OLTL Alum Arlene Dahl Dead At 96, Son Lorenzo Lamas Shares: “She Was The Most Positive Influence In My Life”

Another loss for the soap world and its extended family.  Arlene Dahl, who had a notable career in film and television, and who appeared on both One Life to Live and All My Children, has passed away at the age of 96.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Dahl came on to One life to Live as Lucinda Schenk Wilson, the selfish and manipulative mother of Mimi King played by Kristin Meadows.  Arlene made appearances on the ABC soap starting in 1981 and eventually was offered a one-year contract that took her through till 1984. A decade later, Dahl came on to play Lady Lucille on All My Children for a short time.

On One Life to Live, Arlene mixed it up with Phillip Carey’s Asa Buchanan and Jeremy Slate’s Chuck Wilson.  Dahl is also well-known as one of the regular panelists on the game show, What’s My Line?

While still working in TV and films, Arlene branched out into beauty and cosmetics, eventually becoming an executive and beauty columnist.

Throughout her life, Arlene was married six times.  She had been married to Marc Rosen since 1984 and they remained together till her death.  She is survived by her son Lorenzo, two other children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Watch Arlene with Phillip Carey in scenes from OLTL below.

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

Steve Burton Confirms His Exit From General Hospital

Steve Burton has spoken and after so much speculation, the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star has confirmed he is out as General Hospital’s Jason Morgan.

In his post on his Instagram account on Tuesday, Steve shared that he was let go by the ABC daytime drama series due to their vaccine mandate and that even though he applied for medical and religious exemptions those were denied.  Thus, he has to exit his role.

In story, viewers saw on Monday, that Jason is MIA from being under the rubble of the cave that collapsed in Jason’s attempt to apprehend Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his post, Burton shared the following: “I know there has been a lot of rumors and speculations about me and General Hospital and I wanted you to hear it from me, personally. Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions and both of those were denied, which, you know, hurts, but, this is also about personal freedom to me. I don’t think anyone should lose their livelihood over this. But with that being said, you know me. I’ll always be grateful for my time at General Hospital I love it there. I grew up there. I grew up with some of you, so I will always be grateful and I believe when one door closes multiple doors open. That’s always been my perspective, so I am excited to see what the future brings. ”

Steve went on to say, “Maybe one day when these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan. That would be an honor, and if not, I am going to take this amazing experience, move forward and be forever grateful. I have got to say, that I am forever grateful for your love and your support over the years. It means so much to me. Thank you. I don’t know when my last airdate is. It may have aired or it might be tomorrow or the next day. I am not sure. I want you guys to have an awesome Thanksgiving. I know it is hard, maybe, in this type of situation to be thankful or grateful, but we have so many things to be thankful about. Being grateful really is the key. Love you guys.”

The popular actor began his run as GH’s Jason Quartermaine back in 1991. Later in 1995, after a car accident he had a major personality shift and became Jason Morgan. Burton went to Y&R to play Dylan McAvoy for a four-year stint from 2013-2017, before heading back to his home at GH.

A source close to the show told Deadline that Burton’s last tape date was October 27th.

You can watch Steve’s video announcement below on his GH departure.

So, how do you feel about Steve being let go from GH? Do you hope Steve can return at some point? Share your thoughts via the comment section below,
