The Young and the Restless welcomes back Erika Girardi
Someone’s dance card is getting mighty full: Erika Girardi, who will join season 24 of Dancing with the Stars, is returning to The Young and the Restless in April, EW has learned exclusively.
Girardi will reprise the role of Farrah Dubose, the hotshot realtor who ran into Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) during her first visit to Genoa City in December. Girardi was gifted the Y&R guest spot by Davidson during an episode of their Bravo show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Naturally, moments from Girardi’s Y&R debut were featured on the Bravo reality show.
During her latest return to the soap world, Girardi will cross paths with Ashley’s brother, Jack (Peter Bergman). Girardi’s episode will air April 24.
Girardi — whose professional name is Erika Jane — will partner with pro Gleb Savchenko for season 24 of DWTS, which returns March 20 on ABC.
