Yvette Nicole Brown on Young and Restless

Soap Super-Fan Yvette Nicole Brown to Guest on Young and the Restless

If you wish it, they will call — Yvette Nicole Brown is proof of that.

The Community and Odd Couple actress will cross an item off her bucket list this week when she shoots a guest appearance on CBS’ The Young and the Restless, TVLine has learned exclusively.

“The people at CBS found out that I’m a freakin’ fangirl,” Brown explains. “And they were like, ‘Do you want to go to Genoa City?’ And I’m like, ‘Um, yeah.’ It was probably one of the most exciting calls I have ever received. The only thing that could equal it is if I were to get a call to be on Sesame Street.

“If Sesame Street ever  calls,” she adds, “just go on and tell the Lord I’m comin’ home.”

On Y&R, Brown will play a reporter in scenes with Peter Bergman (Jack), Gina Tognoni (Phyllis), and Jason Thompson (Billy). “All I know is something is happening with Jack, Billy and Phyllis that’s a big deal,” she shares, “and I’m reporting on it.”

Brown’s episode is slated to air on Monday, April 4, which, coincidentally, is just three days before The Odd Couple kicks off its second season; the sitcom returns Thursday, April 7 at 8:30/7:30c, replacing Life in Pieces.
