Genie Francis who is set to debut this Friday on The Young and the Restless, stopped by to chat with the ladies of The Talk on today’s episode.  During the conversation, Francis revealed how it was Oprah who was the reason she landed the role of the sociopathic Genevieve Atkinson.  As had been reported previously, Francis who appeared on Oprah’s soap legend show made it known she was not interested in going back to General Hospital to play Laura as a victim again.  Enter, Y&R’s executive producer and head writer, Maria Arena Bell, who saw Francis on the show and nabbed her for a new role on the number one CBS soap, and the rest is as they say, Genoa City and soap history!

In addition, Francis discussed being teamed with her former GH castmate Tristan Rogers, (Colin, Y&R) as her new on-screen hubby, and the group chit-chatted on Genie’s long time marriage to Jonathan Frakes.

I just love Genie Francis and wish her the absolute best. GH is foolish for letting her escape MULTIPLE times.

And in other news, “The Talk” continues to be just unwatchable. I miss ATWT.

I think I’ve said it before, but, I can’t wait to see Genie on her debut at Y&R. I hope she will bring Colin down . I can’t figure why Colin wants the twins of Lily’s and Cane. Of course, I believe Cane isn’t really dead. Instead his twin is dead and Cane is now pretending to be him to stop his father, Colin. I know it is far fetched, but it makes for an exciting story. Let’s see if Genie can expose her husband plot…….
