Phyllis Diller is returning to TV, just in time to celebrate 'The Bold and the Beautiful's' 25th anniversary.
According to TV Guide Magazine, the 94-year-old actress will reprise her infamous soap role for two days in March. Diller began playing zany makeup artist Gladys Pope in 1995 and her last appearance on the soap was back in 2004. Look for Diller's Gladys Pope to have a new job and play a big part in a romantic event.
Diller is just the latest star returning to her former soap home. Lisa Rinna recently booked a return trip to "Days Of Our Lives" on NBC. Prior to the series finale of "All My Children," Josh Duhamel, Carol Burnett, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Eva La Rue all made appearances on the soap that helped launch their careers.
After the series finale of "One Life to Live" on Fri., Jan. 13, "The Bold And The Beautiful" will be one of last daytime soaps on the air. CBS has it and "The Young and the Restless," NBC has "Days Of Our Lives" and ABC will only have "General Hospital." In an effort to help keep "OLTL's" memory alive, its stars Kassie DePaiva, Roger Howarth, Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson will join the cast of "General Hospital."
"We have a very exciting story planned for the citizens of Port Charles, with Sonny Corinthos at the center of it! I am confident viewers and fans alike will be excited for the arrival of John (Easton), Starr (Alderson), Blair (DePaiva) and Todd (Howarth)," Frank Valentini, "General Hospital" executive producer, said in a statement. "Incorporating characters from 'One Life to Live' continue the legacy of the show as we weave them into 'General Hospital.'"
