Just How Desperate is The Young and the Restless?

Jersey Shore is a cultural phenomenon. It has made Snooki, The Situation and Pauly D household names. The show has inspired countless spoofs and knockoffs and now The Young and the Restless has fallen under its drunken spell. On October 31, American Idol runner up Diana DeGarmo makes her debut as Angelina, a character being compared in various articles and interviews to Jersey Shore’s Snooki. However, every time I read something about the new character I find myself asking myself why, just why?

Diana DeGarmo Previews Y&R Character

American Idol alum Diana DeGarmo debuts on The Young and the Restless on October 31. In an interview with TV Guide, she discusses her new character–a mob boss daughter and aspiring singer–Angelina.
TV Guide Magazine: Sounds like Y&R is getting some comic relief! Give us the deets on this chick.

DeGarmo: Well, she's an over-the-top, gum-smacking, tone-deaf princess whose hair is as large as her attitude. [Laughs] And I'm having a blast! Angelina believes she's Barbra Streisand mixed with Celine Dion and her father — who thinks his spoiled-brat daughter sings like a choir of angels — really puts the pressure on Devon [the young music producer played by Bryton James] to show her the ropes and make her a success. It's fantastically hilarious because it puts the poor kid in a horrible predicament!
