( — In news that Soap Opera Network can now report, Rebecca Budig will be returning to “All My Children” in early 2008.

Sabine Singh has been released from the contract role of Greenlee Smythe, a role she began playing on April 19. The original Greenlee, Emmy-nominated actress Rebecca Budig, will reclaim the role. Budig played the role of Greenlee Smythe from August 11, 1999 through November 28, 2005. Following her departure, Budig enjoyed guest gigs on CBS’s “CSI” and “Out of Practice,” and recently starred in a Lifetime movie of the week, “The Perfect Child.” The 34-year old actress has most recently been seen regularly cheering on her good pal Cameron Mathison, who plays Greenlee’s ex-husband Ryan Lavery on “AMC,” in the seats at ABC’s “Dancing with The Stars.”

Budig joins Darnell Williams, Debbie Morgan – and possibly Eden Riegel – in rejoining the cast of the ABC sudser in 2008 with long-term contracts. SON wishes Ms. Singh the best of luck in her future endeavors.
