Oh Lord, I can't breathe from laughing! Fans of The Young and the Restless will DEFINITELY want to check out the MVID below (after the jump) from uber photographer Derek Blank's photo shoot with Victoria Rowell. The shots, and companion video clips were taken for the cover of Rowell's scandalous, upcoming novel Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva (think: Valley of the Soap Opera Dolls).
While I'm not exactly sure which Y&R diva may or may not have inspired the character of perennial Sudsy winner Emmy Abernathy (I have my hunches)—arch rival of the saucy tome's lead heroine, Calysta Jeffries (both played by Rowell in the clip)— I can bet that whoever she is, she's one soap opera diva who will be trucking it down to a SoCal Borders to pick up a copy of Rowell's scorching-hot read on May 4!
Also, if you haven't picked up the latest copy of Essence magazine (the one with Jill Scott on the cover), you'll want to. The glossy picked Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva as their latest Essence Book Club selection!
