POWER MOVES: Young and Restless Signs GENIE FREAKING FRANCIS!!!
Maria Arena Bell just made Brian Frons kick a puppy in the face. EW.com is reporting General Hospital superstar Genie Francis is joining The Young and the Restless as Cane's (Daniel Goddard) mother! Francis will reunite with her former GH costar Tristan Rogers (ex-Robert), as the ex-wife of Aussie mob boss Colin. We're hearing the mad, mobster mama Francis will play would make Laura Spencer clutch her pearls. Sounds like Bell must have DVR'd Francis on Oprah, where she revealed she wasn't trying to play a soap doormat anymore. Can't. Wait. For. This.
