    Would she not have been a perfect Theresa recast? I dont get why this show kerps hiring big name talent in short term or throwaway roles. Its like they dont look at their entire canvas and assess the needs of the show. They struggled and shoehorned Dr. Daniel Jonas into the show for years…when he would have made a perfectly natural Mike Horton recast. He couldnt have slept with half the women he did if he was Mike, as be would have been related to them. Same on GH…they hire Budig having NO idea whatsoever who she will play. After a few tries and revisions of history, they decided to make her Elizabeth’s sister. News Flash: Elkzabeth already has an established sister that viewers constantly ask about. Questions….do the writers just not know history and backstory as well as fans? Do they really get more royalties for new characters they create?

    I am so glad. I met her at an ATWT gathering in Manhattan the year before that show left the air. she was so very nice and she really is a beautiful lady. My only gripe is that I know i am going to be wishing she can stick around. I know her work is going to be very good!!!

    I cannot believe this! I LOVED her on ATWT & am so excited to see her again. Maybe her character can help fill the void when Nicole leaves the show (which I hate to even think about) So happy to see the girl back on daytime.

    Glad she is making her way back to daytime, even if it is for a short storyline. She was given the short end of the shaft at The Young and the Restless, even though I did find her take on Heather Stevens refreshing! Hope this leads to her making a more permanent return to the daytime fold, because Jennifer is a great actress!

    Well stated, Scott. A few daytime vets got short shrift at Y&R (Maura West anyone?) during the lunatic years of misguided stories endorsed by producers who did not know better. I still feel bad Paul’s children are just not around.

    Do not even get me going on Maura West’s unjustified firing; her portrayal of Diane Jenkins was ace, given the material that was written. She could’ve really become a longterm Genoa City residence, but now she’s found her proper home in Port Charles.

    Thankfully, Genoa City is a saver place to be in 2017 than it was in 2010/2011, etc.

    Scott please she was twenty years too young for the role please stop with the madness ok MW is a fine actress but she was too young for Dianne Jenkins please stop it

    Maura was told the age difference was not a big deal but it was also remember they could not age Kyle when the did Abby the whole thing was a fiasco but she has a good run at GH though I feel they watered her character down since Jelly took over.

    Well, let’s hope this is better than her run on Y&R.

    They would be smart to keep her. She would have good story under Ron Carlivati’s writing.
