Eva Longoria And Young And Restless - Eva Longoria’s return as crazy "Isabella" was again teased during a July 3 airing of "The Young and the Restless" that’s still hurting after earning no major 2012 Daytime Emmy Awards; with hopes that this former "Desperate Housewives” star will boast ratings.
Stay tuned to the CBS TV soap opera “The Young and the Restless” to see if Eva Longoria really does return as the evil Isabella Brana after the show dropped a pre-4th of July bombshell this week with Isabella’s crazed son Ricky being killed by his father Paul Williams. “What’s crazy,” says Y&R fan Tina during a recent Huliq interview is “Paul Williams (portrayed by actor Doug Davidson) has been on the show since day one, back in 1978, or for 30 some years and he’s never killed someone like this – his own son Ricky.” In fact, the Young and the Restless seems to be pulling out all the stops with almost daily “cliff hangers” such as turning the character of Paul from a mainstay on the series for 30 years, into someone who murders his own son; who just happens to also be the son of Isabella, played by former “Desperate Housewives” actress Eva Longoria.
Eva Longoria may be returning to Y&R to boost slipping ratings
Fans of the once very popular CBS soap opera “The Young and the Restless,” may recall that Eva Longoria debuted in the role of the crazy Isabella back in 2001; while remaining on the cast of the series until June 2003, when it was announced that Longoria “had been let go,” stated a TV Guide report.
In turn, Longoria bounced back in the hit ABC primetime evening soap of a different sort “Desperate Housewives,” playing Gabrielle Solis until the series finale last month.
At the same time, her former show – The Young and the Restless – has been in a sort of funk after it garnered a record “16 nominations for the 2012 Daytime Emmy Awards” and only won two lesser Emmy’s for its younger teen stars, reported TV Guide.
In turn, Lauralee Bell – whose parents created The Young and the Restless – while also playing the role of Christine Blair on the show recently told TV Guide that “Longoria has been seen in flashbacks during both recent and past programs, but would not reveal if Longoria will return in the flesh.
“That whole Isabella thing was a very scary time for Chris and Paul and now they wonder if there's something off about Ricky. At first, no one knew Isabella was crazy. He could be a whack job like his mother. Time will tell. But seeing Ricky for the first time as a man is really startling for Chris. And for me, too,” explained Bell during a TV Guide interview.
