A Real Housewives star will go from starring in a real-life soap opera to appearing on a fake one.

EW has learned exclusively that Erika Girardi, who appears on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, will make a guest appearance on CBS’ The Young and the Restless. Giradi will star opposite Eileen Davidson, her fellow Real Housewives star, who maintains her day job on the daytime sudser by playing fan fave Ashley Abbott.

In the episode, slated for Dec. 15, Girardi will play Farrah Dubose, a no-nonsense businesswoman who will interact with Genoa City’s movers and shakers — like Ashley!

The ladies’ experience of working together onY&R will also be featured on the next season of RHOBH.

The Young and the Restless airs weekdays on CBS. The seventh season of Real Housewives begins Dec. 6 on Bravo.
