The Bell tolls... for a while

It's been quite a while since viewers of The Young and the Restless last saw Lauralee Bell (Christine). In fact, it's been over seven months!


The actress, who began her maternity leave from the show back in December of last year, will make a return to Y&R this week.


The show reportedly phoned Bell and told her that they needed her back on-screen for a few episodes and Bell was said to be more than happy to make the brief return. The actress makes her on-sreen return on Tuesday, July 24 and Wednesday, July 25.


Bell gave birth to a son, Christian, on January 17. Some viewers have questioned the unusually long nature of her maternity leave, with some asserting that her father, Y&R creator Bill Bell, is extending special privileges to Bell.


Bell remains on maternity leave from the show and it is unclear when she will return to the canvas full-time.
