Buckle your seat belts, fans, it’s going to be a bumpy ride! Melissa Fumero’s return air date has just been announced, so you can expect her to return on canvas this Thursday September 18, 2008! Will she be surprised to find Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) head over heels in love with Gigi (Farah Fath)? Or does she have a spy still in Llanview who’s been keeping her up-to-date with everything that’s gone on since she left?

Stay tuned!

Previously Reported on August 7, 2008:

We last saw Adriana when she left for a trip to Paris – and separation from Rex – back on June 11, 2008. Soaps.com has heard the rumors of an Adriana return, so we went to the character’s portrayer, Melissa Fumero, for the scoop!

When I asked Melissa if there was any truth to the possibility of a return, Melissa confirmed that she will be bringing Adriana back to Llanview for about fifteen episodes that should air in late September or early October.

For those of you wondering what this means for the Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier), Adriana and Gigi (Farah Fath) triangle… Melissa gave me this little teaser to hold you over, “Had to come back and wreak some havoc…”

Soaps.com wants to welcome Melissa back to the show – even if it is just for a little while. We’ve missed you and can’t wait to see what Adriana has planned for those who have scorned her in Llanview!

Once again, we are glad to be able to clear up the rumor mill and are very happy that this one is true!
