The Young and the Restless (Y&R) spoilers tease that Courtney Hope could be headed to Genoa City. A Soap Opera Digest blind item suggested that one actress would be trading her current daytime drama for another one. Now that Hope has confirmed her exit as The Bold and the Beautiful’s Sally Spectra, part one of the blind item is complete. To finish things off, she just needs to make her way over to Y&R.
A new tweet provides further evidence of a possible soap switch. Hope cheerfully talked about her daily activities. She mentioned that she “worked on a character for a script” before adding, “Today is a good day and it’s just begun.” Hope’s awfully chipper for someone who recently lost her job. Could it be because she’s already got a better one on The Young and the Restless?
Y&R buzz hints that the CBS soap has been searching a Summer Newman recast. Many viewers feel like Hope would be the perfect fit. She definitely resembles Gina Tognoni (Phyllis), so that’s a huge bonus. It’s always nice when TV moms and daughters look alike.
Plus, Hope would bring some serious acting skills to the table. B&B wasn’t taking full advantage of her talent, so taking on a meatier role at Y&R would be great news. It was a shame to see Hope dropped at The Bold and the Beautiful, but this soap swap would make it all worthwhile.
The Young and the Restless spoilers reveal that Kyle (Michael Mealor) is coming back next week, so he’ll probably end up longing for his ex eventually. Summer needs to return and give her romance with Kyle another shot. As a Newman and an Abbott in love, they’d have the classic star-crossed lovers thing going on.
Of course, Summer wouldn’t have to be stuck with just Kyle. Hope would be able to pull off pairings with more mature love interests as well. There would be some interesting possibilities to consider. Whatever the case, Hope’s Twitter hint is encouraging. Maybe she’ll pop up in GC down the road!
Do you think Courtney Hope should be the Summer Newman recast? As the tweet below reveals Courtney did promise fans she’ll be back on TV again soon. We’ll give you updates as other details emerge.

Prayed a bit, Read some of a good book, wrote a few pages, painted a little, took a walk in nature with my pups, worked on a character for a script, ate a good meal, headed to workout… the simple things are what make me happy 😊 – Today is a good day and it’s just begun.
