[Deanna Barnert] is thrilled by news that crazy Diane (aka Susan Walters) is coming back to Genoa City and hopes it's for more than just two days!

Susan Walters is back as Diane on 2/26, 3/1 and I'm hoping more.
So far there hasn't been a confirmation, but I thought this was worth posting, considering the source.

*UPDATED 2/5*

CONFIRMED BY SOAPS IN DEPTH:

Susan Walters is bringing Diane back to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS for a visit! Look for Victor's ex to show up in Genoa City on Friday, February 26, and Monday, March 1. Sources tell Soaps In Depth that Kyle, Diane's son with Jack, will most likely also be returning.

Donnelly must have really done something to piss people off over there.

But yay, my Diane's coming back!

I don't know why they won't let her play Diane. She was fabulous! IMO, she was the definitive Diane Jenkins.

I like Susan Walters, so I am happy her Diana is returning. I wonder if she will be "delivering" Kyle to Jack.

I hope this is true. But then again MAB and co. may turn her into an irredeemable psycho of the month. :(

AD was fired for being too old. She said she was disappointed when they brought on Susan Walters and she wasn't even asked. Originally the show tried to spin it like they'd run out of story and was writing Diane out. Then a few months later she's back so you know whats up.

I'm sure MAB and co will ruin Diane. I wonder if Ryder is really Kyle and she's the woman tormenting Lauren.

Oh shit! Diane better not be the mother, and Ryder better not be Kyle Abbott.

Heh, then that will beg the question, why torment Lauren? What is their connection?

Ok, if she's only back for 2 episodes that would seem unlikely she'd be the stalker. And they did DNA test Rider, right? So he couldnt be Kyle Abbott.

I love Walters and I love her as Diane. I'd be glad to see her back, and I'd love her to bring back Kyle with her and dump him on Jack. However, Kyle can't be Ryder.

DNA on this show? LOL! I never thought we were meant to believe Ryder was really Kevin's brother. His whole life and identity is a lie and he's being backrolled by some uber rich unseen mastermind. I figure he said he's Kevin's brother to get closer to Lauren.

As for Diane, I expect bad things regardless of the content. We'll see how it goes. Still upset Alex Donnelly isn't returning though. She brought so much depth to that role and had chemistry with everyone. Susan Walters was so bland and forgettable. No way she'd work with Eric Braeden. She couldn't hold her own in regular scenes with him. And the chemistry AD had with Melody Thomas Scott was off the charts. Those two battling over Victor? Classic. Or AD vs Sandra Nelson's fierce Phyllis beginning the neverending entanglement of Jack and Phyllis? A total classic.

I can't think of anything Susan did in the role that was all that memorable or great. Diane was written as such a pathetic woman and then just quietly left town and nobody cared. Shame.

its possible, but he seems to be talking to Daisy like he is their brother.

This pic is from late 2008, she's supposedly only 50 but looks older to me. Here are some other more recent pics of her.

When they're trying to have Jack pretend to be in his 40s, she's too old looking to be his ex.

Sad, but true.
