AWESOMELY FANTASTIC Blind Item: Which Former ABC Superstar is Joining a CBS Sudser?




I imagine fans of this former ABC Daytime superstar will be quite happy to learn he or she just joined a CBS sudser in quite the bitchin' role! I can't reveal who the wildly popular thespian is yet, or who he or she will be portraying (it's a recast), but let's just say this will go down as one of the biggest casting coups of the new millenium!

My guess is that it's Tamara Braun taking over the role of Victoria Newman on Y&R.

Please let it be Eden Riegel!! Please, please, pleasepleaseplease. Man, I miss her so much I will take her in any soap or show just to have her on my screen. Sad Stupid AMC wasted her talent on stupid Babe, Zarf and Reese. I'm still so mad about those.

I think the woman who played Evangeline, Renee Elise Goldsberry, on OLTL is going to be playing Drucilla.

I think it's probably Eden Riegel or Tamara Braun...please don't let B&B get them...Y&R needs them.

I don't know who the actress is, but I would bet that it is a recast of Victoria Newman. Jamey, will you be able to tell us any more news, like hinting at the show, or her old show? When will we get to learn the answer? When will she air?

She did? So, it could be more that wishful thinking of my part? Yes! I hope we know for sure soon, before I get my hopes up too high and could end up crushed.

from Eden Riegel's twitter:

"I've got some really interesting, fun news coming your way! I know it's cruel to tease, but I'm too excited to keep it in.

about 15 hours ago via web"

If it's quite the bitchin role...I can't classify Mac as a bitchin role so that's why I don't think it's Mac that is being recast. 

Jamey can we get a hint if they character is currently onscreen now? or will the recast be the newly returned to town character?

Is Renee Elise Goldberry really considered an ABC Superstar?  I don't know if I would quite classify her as that.

Let's just say I've been saying this particular show should snag this particular star for quite some time...

Yes Renee Elise Goldsberry is a OLTL superstar IMO. I can't see her as Drucilla though. I really think that after reading the thing from Eden's Twitter that she is coming to Y&R but not sure which character she will be. I can't see her as Victoria but who knows.

I don't think Frons or Guza would let VM go to a CBS soap, they've both been salivating over the possibility of getting her back at some point.  I imagine they'd do everything possible to thwart any possibility of losing her to a rival network LOL  But hey, maybe I'm wrong.  I'm gonna agree with those who said Eden Riegel

Once Jamey gave us that Clue Eden Rigel came to mind as Mac Browning.
or Tamara Braun as Victoria Newman

Well, if it is either Eden or Tamara coming to Y&R, I just became a Y&R fan. Never watched the show except on a few occasions, so don't really know too much about it, so I guess I'm going to have to start watching it.

As a huge Bianca fan, I was disappointed in her last return because Charles Pratt ruined the character somewhat for me, but if it is Eden, and getting a fresh start at another soap maybe what she needs because ABC trashed Bianca so many times.

That being said, something tells me that Eden would remain loyal to the soap that launcehd her career.

You mean the soap that threw Bianca time and time again under the bus and even Eden herself? Eden loves AMC and Bianca, no doubt about it, but switching to another soap is not being disloyal, specially in her case since she's not currently on AMC's cambas. Beside, somebody needs to use her talent and if AMC snooze...

OMG, you folks are smarties. (serious when I say that. Very 'outside the box' thinking!!)

I originally thought Victoria Newman Recast with Tamara Braun.....But FELL OVER IN MY CHAIR when I saw the "Vanessa Marcil as Victoria" idea. I WOULD CRY IN HAPPINESS!!!!
R.E.G as a Dru recast ...I like Renee, but I'm all aboard the "no one can replace Victoria Rowell" in the roll. Besides, REG is tooooo young to be a 'grandmother'. (I KNOW, I KNOW, we're supposed to overlook that, blah, blah, blah. But I can't. I"m not an idiot. And Kyle and Abby are SUPPOSED TO BE the same age!!)

I'm going to hear flak for this, but I cannot stand Eden Reigal. I think it's partly how the AMC morons wrote for her, so my mind is all muddled when it comes to "Binks".

Maybe it's a B&B role?? I don't faithfully watch that show, so I'm not sure who sucks enough/been gone to be replaced.

How about Jeff Branson as a recast Thomas Forrester???

I'm stumped.
