(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Another name has been added to the growing list of former "All My Children" stars who have returned or are confirmed to be returning to bid the ABC soap adieu before taping concludes on September 2. So far, that list includes Josh Duhamel, Cady McClain, Thorsten Kaye and Shannon Kane. This evening, in a press release, ABC reveals that "CSI: Miami" star Eva LaRue will join that returning group. The 44-year-old stunner is due to bring Dr. Maria Santos Grey back to Pine Valley this July. LaRue starred on the ABC soap from March 1993 to August 1997 and from June 2002 to June 2005. Her electric chemistry with co-star John Callahan, who played her husband Edmund Grey, translated into a real-life romance. The couple made their union official with a 1996 wedding. In 2001, the relationship produced a daughter, Kaya. LaRue and Callahan divorced in 2004....
On Monday, May 23, three days after news broke that Ingo Rademacher (Jasper 'Jax' Jacks) had been fired by ABC's "General Hospital," Soap Opera Network tweeted that we had exclusively learned that Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda Barrett Corinthos) would be the next actor leaving the daytime drama series. On Thursday, May 26, just before the long Memorial Day Weekend, the actress confirmed our report when she revealed that her days with the soap were numbered via her Twitter page. Interestingly, the actress has been tweeting up a storm since revealing the news while keeping mum for nearly 3 months on her twitter account (it had previously been crickets since February of this year). Marcil Giovinazzo's confirmation follows months of rumors since she revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood Live back in March that she was on her way out.
