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!

    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. :( Stupid AMC wasted her talent on stupid Babe, Zarf and Reese. I’m still so mad about those.

    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?

    [quote=lesterbomb]Dude! This is sooooo Eden Riegel, she posted a tweet about big news. I bet she’s the new Mac on YR
    [/quote] 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?

    My guess would have been Vanessa Marcil until I read this post. How long to we have to wait before its out?

    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

     I just thought about it maybe it could be Robin Mattson but no clue for the role that she would be playing. 
    Marcy Walker LOL ! 
    Alicia Minshew as Victoria Newman ? 
    Kristina Wagner ?
    Jackie Zeiman ?
    The roles I Can see being recasted on young and the restless our 
    Daisy
    Abby
    Brittany Hodges
    Colleen Carlton ( it’s daytime she can be alive people lol !)
    Casey Reed 
    Definitely Victoria Newman
    Lily Winters
    Drucilla Winters
    Nathan Hastings jr. ( I wish)

    On B&B 
    Felicia Forrester
    Kristen Forrester

    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.

    It’s so Eden, Jamey’s been saying she should go to Y&R for years now, add that with her twitter announcement and I’d say I’m 99 percent sure it’s her.

    Ok Now Jamey it has to be for the role of Victoria Newman!  Gosh I am getting so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    *goes back to read some wishful castings*

    I know it has to be for Y&R because you rarely mention casting for B&B…and i doubt they are going to ATWT…I’m getting happy!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think this is TB especially because her career has been quite quiet for a while …and the fact that jamey has hinted at it forever..could it be true

    [quote=Jamey Giddens]FINAL HINT: The soap this star is joining already employs the other half of an insanely popular supercouple they were involved in at their former soap.[/quote] Thanks Jamie. Tat confirms it for me. Eden is headed to Y&R.

    Oh honey, you know how the mags stay parked on DC, lurking like peeping toms in a bush! LMAO I predict some old schooler will be posting "exclusive" news anytime now. Unfortunately soap publicists still think it’s better to give official confirmation to magazines that are shedding readers like dudes at a Hair Club for Men convention than with a hit blog that’s read by a quarter of a million people. :p

    I hope it’s Tamara Braun taking over as Victoria Newman……………

    I don’t want to see ANYONE in the role of Drucilla other than VICKI ROWELL!!!! If Y&R recasts her, I will NOT be happy!!!!!!

    Vanessa Marcil is NOT coming back to daytime. If she WERE coming back, it would almost assuredly be to GH!! Besides, despite the "hoopla" that has always surrounded Vanessa, I have never found her to be particularly amazing or worthy of the hype…..Sorry!!!

    Eden Riegel should come onto the show to replace Clementine "Block of wood" Ford……..Goodness, what is going on with that casting director over there? Why do they have such a hard time finding a DECENT actress to play the role of Mac???? Why is Clementine still THERE???? Is it because she’s Cybill Shepherd’s daughter???? Oh, well, the Bell Production company was built on nepotism.

    Suggestions: Please find SOMEONE to replace Jacqueline Wood!! ANYONE!!! Do an open casting call, and I guarantee you that you’ll find at least 100 girls that are better!!!!

    Oh I know, I just mean something more than teasing, like an actual name so I can know if I will be crushed or not.

    It’s obviously going to be someone joining Y&R. B&B has a huge and underused cast. There’s no reason to recast Felicia or Kristen.

    So, on Y&R, which character could be recast? Victoria or Mac?

    Jamey said that he had wanted this superstar cast on a CBS soap for a long time. Now who could that be.

    (If this were Luke, we would know it’s Marcy Rylan!)

    Jamey’s clues:
    Bitchin=Imaginary Bitches
    Insanly popular super couple=BAM
    Previous wishful casting=Eden Riegle as Mac
    Plus Eden’s big news tweet

    If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be…. a duck.

    Jamey you tease! All I gotta say is if Eden is going to grace my screan again I hope they tease us BAM fans, make her and Chloe friends, have them have little looks, and such…you know basically the same thing that AMC did….what? I’m not still bitter…..

    You guys, I swear. ALL BELONG with the FBI!! :-)

    Okay, so it does *look* like it’s Eden Regal. Here’s hoping M.A. Bell & Co make her NOTHING like that do gooding, brother in law sperm stealing, holier than tho Binks!!!!

    In my head I envision "Mac" (let’s assume it’s her) with "Kev", should Jana die and leave the canvas. THATS cute!! Remember in Billy’s NYE dream, down the road Mac was married to Kevin….. I keep going back to that in wondering about Jana’s Fate.

    Dude, it’s gotta be Eden Riegel. Her and Elizabeth Hendrickson reuniting would be fan-fucking-tastic! I’m looking at Jamey’s twitter page and the only clue is Imaginary Bitches. I’m getting my BAM back!!!

    Now who would want to jump on a sinking ship?
    The writing at Y&R hasn’t been great, likewise the
    B&B isn’t too hot either. So why bother?

    Ok Jamey just tweeted another clue that totally confirmed it 100%. Here’s his tweet!

    Jamey_Giddens 

    I am having the hardest time remembering the name of Pebbles’ boyfriend on the Flintstones all of the sudden!

    You threw me with the term "Superstar". With terminology like that, my mind automatically thinks someone like a Genie Francis or a Susan Lucci…. Eden Reigel not so much.  But based on the other clues, it has to be Eden.

    Thanks for the scoops, Jamey! That was fun, lol.

    FYI: Speaking of solving mysteries, did you know that there’s going to be a board game based on the show, NCIS? I don’t know why it came to mind from one of Jamey’s comments but it did, lol.

    If Eden’s gonna be Mac, I SO want the whole Billy/Chloe/Mac triangle to be played again. Just imagine Killer Miller, Liz and Eden in scenes together – pure awesomeness!

    Extra Special Crispy Clue: YES it’s a person I have Wishfully Casted on the soap in question, but it ISN’T as the role I wanted them as.

     I might drop a few more clues on Twitter (Jamey_Giddens) if you’re lucky!

    There’s no way that Y&R would recast Drucilla.  Not going to happen.  BTW, any word on who will play Malcolm’s new girlfriend ?

    I understand that some of you don’t like Ms. Heinle but I do.   So, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the new mother won’t lose her job.  

    If an ABC superstar is coming to Y&R, does the show have budget for her/him?  If it were Marcil, I’d imagine that ABC would pay her top dollar.

    [quote=reeceecup] it looks like she is going to be playing Heather, I’m still holding out for a Lily and Mac recast [/quote]
    Lily? Um, no, she would be SOOO much better than CK but still… No.

    Oh, I hope if she’s Heather they give the character a brain, a consistent brain…

                                                      H E A T H E R !!??

    Wow! That came out of NOOOO WHERE!!

    Aw, I don’t mind Vail Bloom. JEALOUS of her, sure, but ….really? A Heather Recast??

    Well…. That means we get the Wooden Clementine for the duration. Ugh.

    I have to agree w/what Josstheguy said about Amelia Heinle. She’s grown on me bigtime. I still say she’s got the best chem w/Josh Morrow. They’re totally believable as siblings. Now if they’d JUST keep her hair out of her face….

    A Heather recast (shaking head) wow….

    ~sigh~ Heather?  She is going to be Heather?  *shaking my head*   Eden Riegel will rock the role I am sure because she is an amazingly talented actress.  But, I was looking for her to be put  ‘elsewhere’ so to speak.  Oh, well.  Ms. Riegel, break a leg as the new Heather!!!

    Okay, they are recasting Hather? Not Mac that everybody hates, not the writing but the acting or Victoria that falls asleep during her lines but Heather, that beside being a moron has no major acting problem? Okay, what in the world does MAB sees on CF? I’m still gonna happily embrace Eden, but still, MAB let go of Mac already!! Is a waste of a character!

    I have watched all 3 ABC since the beginning of time and the only available female superstar is Genie Francis -when you compare the others to her,  they are not superstars lol
