Young and Restless: Maria Arena Bell Named New Head Writer


Soap Opera Network is reporting that Maria Arena Bell is taking over as the new Head Writer for “The Young and The Restless.”

Assuming this is true, this is just the latest indication that CBS, Sony, and the Bell family are doing their best to bring in the "exterminators" and wiping out any trace of Lynn Marie Latham's infestation of the #1 rated soap. This along with the possible return of

Victoria Rowell

, the jump of

Leslie Kay

from Bold and Beautiful, and the return of

Michael Damian

should have Young and Restless fans in a very good mood.
