According to TV Guide, Lauralee Bell will be returning to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Christine for a handful of episodes beginning on Wednesday, November 9… along with one-time Genoa City foe Eva Longoria! Well, sort of.
Bell’s visit will feature lots of flashbacks to 2001-’03, when Longoria played loco Isabella Braña, a former prostitute who got herself knocked up by Christine’s hubby, Paul. When baby Ricky wasn’t enough to keep the P.I. by her side, Isabella faked her death and framed Chris for the murder, and then showed up one night and tried to drown her nemesis while Christine was soaking in the bathtub! While Isabella has been locked away in a mental hospital ever since the 2003 incident, Longoria left Y&R after being cast on a new primetime drama called DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES (in case you didn’t know!).
So in case you were wondering why Isabella and Doug’s son, Ricky, suddenly showed up in town to help Avery with Sharon’s court case, the legal intern just may have an ulterior motive! A Y&R rep confirms that November 9 will be a must-see day!
