It looks like THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Sharon is getting a new lawyer in those pesky charges that she killed Skye. According to TV Guide, former LOVING sweetheart Jessica Collins (Dinah Lee) has been cast in the contract role of high-powered attorney Avery Clark, hired by Victor to represent his daughter-in-law for her bum murder rap. Look for Collins -- whose post-daytime roles include AMERICAN DREAMS, TRU CALLING and Catch Me If You Can -- to debut on Wednesday, July 27.

OMG, Dinah Lee returns to tv! It sucks that its to Y&R but I was a Dinah Lee fan from Loving as played by the fabulous Jessica Collins. Its been about 17 years since she's been in daytime. It will be so good to see her again

That's random, but it's nice to see Y&R hiring soap actors, instead of someone who was on Happy Days.

Is she replacing Leslie?

Is she still with Robert Tyler or was that over long ago?

Haha, they could have easily hired Candace Cameron for this role. Im glad to see an old soap star back on tv instead of some sitcom actor

She could have been a Heather recast instead of horrible Eden.

I would think she is too old for Heatherbc she has to be like 40 something by now but man does she look good. She was beautiful then and has aged very well. She doesnt look much older than Vail and I could see her as Heather, at least she would be a step up from Eden

Were she and Heinle on Loving at the same time. Kind of hazy about that.

Yes. Collins was on the show from around 1991 to mid/late 1994. Heinle was on from about 1992-the end of Loving (late 1995).

Heinle was at her best, by far, on Loving, so perhaps this will inspire her.

    • Every time I see FV or LW interviewed about Carly's upcoming storylines, they always say "...and of course Carly stomps in and throws her weight around, because that's Carly being Carly!" Basically, the show has a specific, one-dimensional view of the character, and they keep it simple like that because they assume that fans live for Carly 'kicking ass' and being a 'boss.' And LW, who is both popular and polarizing, delivers on that characterization.  GH missed a trick with the Jason wedding. Jason has always been the one who got away. Sonny was kind of Carly's second choice back in the day because Jason never really wanted her. And Carly was able to suppress that rejection because she had Jason emotionally tied to her via Michael for years. She put up with being friend-zoned for +2 decades, but the wedding should have been the dam breaking for her, where finally, FINALLY, Jason was going to be all hers. Finally she had another chance to make him fall in love with her the way she had always been with him. And then Sonny comes back, and of course she HAS to get back with Sonny but... And thereupon we have new storyline of five people featuring Carly, Jason Britt, Sonny and Nina, and with Carly perhaps no longer willing to keep her frustrated desire under lock-and-key anymore.  And with Jason presumed dead, this could send Carly in a tailspin where she is forced to come to terms with having her 'second chance' with Jason nipped from her grasp. Anyhoo, I'm doing what a lot of viewers do which is "If I was HWing this sh!t..."
    • I wouldn't put the demise of Miami all at Adriana's door. She wasn't the only one lying -- Joanna marrying Romain reeked of insta-TV wedding. Honestly, I blame production for pushing 'Duelling Weddings' as THE ONLY storyline sustaining 16 episodes. Weddings aren't quite the draw Bravo thinks they are, and it was boring watching hours of these chicks trying on dresses, etc. Season 3 suffered from: -a reduced wider cast; -No Mama Elsa (a major factor IMO); -no lightening-rod Karent; -increased toxicity amongst the women.  By the end, most of the cast clearly couldn't stand each other, or were drumming up a bunch of insta-fights (Lisa vs Joanna, Marysol's never-ending hounding of Lea). Lea was ready to peace out of the franchise altogether before it even ended. Reunion was a disaster because the rest of the cast were desperate to make S4 happen and just threw anything at the wall to see what stuck. Adriana, whatever you may think about her, was highly dramatic and a big pot-stirrer. I think she deserves a spot more than Larsa, but we will see how the Miami reboot shakes out. I do worry that we haven't seen any trailer or promo for this, unlike RHUGT which was trailed over a month in advance.
    • It helps that Ben doesn't have a long history with John (they've barely interacted) + it plays into the stroke John had which led to him having outbursts. So it's not completely out of the realm that Ben would believe her and even think it was possible because of above factors.
