Longtime favorite Lauralee Bell (Christine) is heading back for a return engagement to The Young and the Restless for a series of episodes starting November 9th ( in the middle of sweeps) that will be, according to TV Guide exclusively ” packed with juicy flashbacks — circa 2001-03 — featuring Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria, who got her start on Y&R as Isabella, the ex-wife of Paul, who made Christine’s life hell!

Many recall that Longoria played, Isabella Braña,who got pregnant by Christine’s husband, Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), and later faked her death and tried to frame Christine for the murder! Later the “dead” Isabella showed up one night and tried to drown Chris in the bathtub.

So what is the tie-in? Wel,l naturally the character of Ricky Williams played by sexy newcomer, Peter Porte.  Clearly, there is something up with this guy’s appearance in Genoa City and there has got to be more than meets the eye. So to get this mystery moving, Y&R needs to give the viewers a refresher course …  enter Lauralee and the drama goes on from there!

    Wow! I sort of knew that Y&R was going to do something along these lines when Ricky returned to town. There was just no way that Ricky would show up and there wouldn’t be anything to really back up why Ricky came back to Genoa City. Smart move by Y&R.

    I love Cricket!! I just hope she stays away from my favourite couple, Nina and Paul!


  3. AlistairCrane says:

    Wonder if this has anything to do with Ricky’s sister Heather’s exit from the show…

    Awesome! Will be a great way to bring in new viewers! Love that Cricket is coming back… just hope she doesn’t run into Phyllis, or the “BUG” is going to get squashed for kissing Nick at Jimmy’s last year! :) I wanna see that catfight!!

    If I was Maria Bell I would be a little concerned with showing flashbacks then you will see how really bad this show has become.

    What’s the chances of Eva coming back for a while. I love her on Y&R. She was great as crazy. I too wish the show was as good now as it was then. I’ve been watching for a long time. I’m afraid Y&R will go bay the way of AMC and OLTL sad to lose all our soaps.
