Rebecca Staab Comes to YR

One of my favorite soap actresses will be coming back to daytime, at least temporarily. Rebecca Staab, former Jessie Matthews on Guiding Light, will play April Stevens, Heather's mother and Paul Williams' former wife on The Young and the Restless.

I always loved the pairing of Jessie and Simon Hall, back in the mid to late '80s. I'm not ashamed to admit that I had a girl-crush on her.

I also LOVED her as the bitchy boutique manager on Beverly Hills, 90210, whom Brenda and her mom, Cindy, taught a lesson to about stealing other salesperson's commissions. Classic!

As of now, it appears her role that her YR role is for January 11 and 14 only. Oh well, I'll take her any way I can get her!
