The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills songstress will reprise her role as high-powered real estate agent Farrah Dubose on the soap in two upcoming episodes. Farrah is back in Genoa City to help someone in town find a new bachelor pad, according to E! News.
Erika made her Y&R debut in December 2016 when Farrah literally bumped into Eileen's character, Ashley Abbott. They then exchanged words — all over spilled coffee, no less — that seemed straight out of RHOBH. Erika brought her fierceness back to Y&R for another appearance in April 2017.

Erika's first appearance on Y&R was a gift given to her by Eileen for her birthday in Season 7 of RHOBH. "I thought that Erika would be a great fit for The Young and the Restless because she was a soap opera fan. She shared that with me last year when I brought her to set just to visit. And she was very excited just about being there and witnessing the whole process," Eileen told The Daily Dish in February 2017. "So I thought, 'Oh my God, if I have her on the show, she's gonna really love it.' And I knew she'd fit right in, and she did."
This exciting news comes as Genoa City celebrates Eileen's recent Daytime Emmy win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Ashley. This is the second Daytime Emmy for Eileen, who previously won the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her work as Kristen DiMera on Days of Our Lives.
