The co-host of THE TALK, who also hosts the hit CBS summer reality series BIG BROTHER, is taping an episode of Y&R which will air during May Sweeps. According to Entertainment Weekly, Hilary travels to Los Angeles from Genoa City in the hopes of persuading Chen to appear on her newsmagazine show, GC Buzz.
“HIlary will stop at nothing to interview her idol, Julie Chen,” a Y&R spokesperson previews of the special appearance.
Other actors will join Mishael Morgan in the special episodes which will air the week of May 15, with Chen’s appearance scheduled for Wednesday. The role shouldn’t be a problem for Chen, who has appeared as herself in primetime series like MADAM SECRETARY, THE MILLERS, and SUPERGIRL! And we’re sure we’ll hear all about her experience in Genoa City on an upcoming episode of THE TALK!

Special guests are always showing up for visits in Genoa City, including Chen’s THE TALK co-host Sheryl Underwood, who played Justice of the Peace Clarice Collins. STAR TREK icon Nichelle Nichols appeared as Neil’s mother, Lucinda, for the soap’s 11,000th episode last year, and most recently, Eileen Davidson (Ashley) welcomed her REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS castmate Erika Girardi back for another appearance as real estate agent Farrah.
