    Last week "General Hospital" executive producer Frank Valentini revealed that there will be plenty of villains hanging around the denizens of Port Charles this fall and he wasn't kidding. While a show rep issued a "no comment" when contacted by Soap Opera Network, actress Robin Mattson announced on her Facebook page yesterday that she is returning to the daytime soap as Heather Webber in the near future.

    As previously reported, former game show host Bob Barker is returning to CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" on Thursday, August 28. The episode finds Barker once again playing a version of himself when he goes to check up on new pal Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton). The friendly visit, however, goes south when an argument between Barker and Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) ensues following Wyatt's choice words about animal lovers. Having enough of Wyatt's antics, Barker unleashes the smackdown on his candy you know what. The scene is reminiscent of Barker's classic fight scene from the 1996 Adam Sandler film, “Happy Gilmore.” Following a flurry of punches, Wyatt falls to the ground and begins to roll down a hill, where he lands face-down in a puddle of mud.

    He's been prancing around Genoa City only showing his hands to viewers, while the rest of the town thinks he's dead, but Adam Newman is most certainly returning to CBS' "The Young and the Restless" in the coming months with a new face after supposedly dying in a fiery explosion in late January as played by actor Michael Muhney. TV Guide's Michael Logan is reporting that "Smallville" and "Revenge" star Justin Hartley is returning to daytime television to assume the role of the devilish Adam just in time for the all important November sweeps ratings period. Hartley, who will report to the CBS Television Center studio where "Y&R" is filmed in late September, previously portrayed the role of Fox Crane on NBC's "Passions" from 2002 to 2006.

    It's been over 10 years since we last saw Grace Turner on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" as played by "The Bold and the Beautiful" star Jennifer Gareis, but anyone who saw the promo highlighting this week's worth of shows where Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow) said to a mystery blonde, "It's good to see you," just before she makes sexual advances on him, could tell the woman in question was someone he had intimate knowledge of and not some random new character. In fact, with Grace being in revealing clothing so much during her tenure on the soap back in the day, anyone could recognize Gareis solely based on body and hair style (yes, Grace had plenty of fun with several of Genoa City's hottest men).
