‘The Price Is Right’ Model to Play Wedding Planner on ‘Y&R’

Gwendolyn Osborne-Smith and and Jason Thompson

Every wedding needs a planner, even if it is a couple’s fourth time saying, “I Do.” So the newly engaged Billy (Jason Thompson) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) hire one to coordinate their next trip down the aisle on “The Young and the Restless,” and she’s being played by “The Price Is Right” model Gwendolyn Osborne-Smith.

“Feb 29th on @YRInsider I’m Evelyn-the Wedding planner! Acting with these cuties! Will Victoria and Billy Marry?” Osborne-Smith shared on Twitter, along with pictures of the bride and groom.

Osborne-Smith didn’t have to travel far for her new job, since “Y&R” and “The Price Is Right” shoot just across the hall from each other at CBS Television City in Hollywood. Nor was she nervous about the gig, since she has acted before. Osborne-Smith was a series regular in “Ocean Ave.” from 2002 to 2003 and appeared in “Basketball Wife” in 2013. Plus, she currently stars in the reality series “Meet the Smiths” with her husband, retired NBA player Kenny Smith, and their family. The show airs Fridays on TBS.

Look for Osborne-Smith to appear on “Y&R’s” Monday, February 29  episode as the very British Evelyn. She’ll share scenes with Heinle and Thompson.
