Longtime THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS fan Connie Knight will be making an appearance in Genoa City in the episode slated to air Wednesday, August 13. But she’s not just any ordinary soap fan she’s the mother of sports superstar Deion Sanders! The athlete visited the Y&R set with his mother and his girlfriend, Tracey Edmonds, as part of the taping of his reality series, DEION’S FAMILY PLAYBOOK. Daniel Goddard (Cane) is a big fan, and posted this photo of them with Bryton James (Devon) to his Facebook page, writing, “What a super nice guy! It goes to show, you can be a legend and still be down to earth.”
So after you’ve seen Knight’s appearance on Y&R, you can see the flip side of their visit when DEION’S FAMILY PLAYBOOK returns to the air this fall on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network!
