Diana DeGarmo, fresh off a year-long starring role on the national tour of “9 to 5,” has found a potentially longer gig as a regular cast member of the top soap opera around, CBS’s “The Young and the Restless.”
Sure, soaps are a dying breed but this one has been No. 1 for years and is guaranteed on CBS through at least 2013. So if viewers like her character, Diana could have a long-term gig.
TV Guide broke the news and DeGarmo confirmed it yesterday in a Tweet. They say she is going to play Angelina, the daughter of a Jersey mob boss. So after working a Dolly Parton accent for “9 to 5,” she’ll now be honing her Jersey lilt. Boning up on “Jersey Shore” reruns should help!
