Get ready to relive a nightmare! Longtime fan fave Lauralee Bell is heading back to CBS's The Young and the Restless for a series of episodes starting November 9 that'll be packed with juicy flashbacks — circa 2001-03 — featuring Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria.

Just before Longoria hit Wisteria Lane, she played Genoa City nutjob Isabella Braña, a former prostie who clashed with Bell's character, Christine, and made her life a living hell. Isabella not only got pregnant by Christine's husband, Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), but later faked her death and tried to frame Christine for the murder. In a most memorable shocker, the "dead" Isabella showed up one night and tried to drown Chris in the bathtub.

Why the sudden interest in this fabulous fruitcake? In a miracle unique to soaps, little Ricky Williams — Isabella's son by Paul — has been aged by the writers into a strapping young man (now played by Peter Porte) who recently showed up in GC working as a legal intern on a major court case. But what's he really up to? To get this mystery moving, Y&R needs to remind viewers of the emotional havoc caused by Ricky's mama. And who can do that better than Bell? Welcome back, babe!

Oh please, not another "mystery." Hamner and Sheffer fail at them, they have failed at every single one for their entire soap careers. And there are already two "mysteries" on the show.

This just seems like a ratings stunt. Flashbacks of Isabella would have made sense when people actually cared about Desperate Housewives.

The last time Christine was on she was just there to make out with Nick. She's pointless.

Let's see Ricky blames Christine for his mother's death..he turns into a instant serial killer....Paul visits him at the funny farm.....Paul realizes he is not the real Ricky but a fake Ricky and real Ricky is still living it up with his mom's parents. The real Ricky heads to GC only to not have a storyline and be written out twice...ie actor.....

Not that its important but i would kind of like them to have Phyllis find out that Cricket was the one who was kissing Nick that day. I don't believe they have had any Phyllis vs The Bug scenes ever since Lauralee came back a year ago.

This just sounds like a bad idea all the way around. I think a lot of people forget that except for stuff like the exciting climax to it the original Paul and Isabella story was in fact a pretty bad story. We had Christine going around in a bad wig with a bad southern accent, we had consistency problems, and more importantly we had to see Paul rape Christine. UGH.

Not to mention what an easy excuse to destroy another child of a legacy character. My guess we'll have Isabella get made over to be Christine's doppelganger while Ricky gets glorified as Geona City's newest abuser.
