In related news, ABC revealed on Wednesday that Meredith Vieira will return to "General Hospital" on Friday, December 14, as Bree Flanders, a former madam.

"I actually resurrected a character, Bree Flanders, that I played ten years ago. At that point she was a madam," Meredith said in a statement. "Now she's a Senior Vice President of a company, so she's definitely improved her lot in life. It strikes me every time I do anything with a soap opera - but just working with 'General Hospital' -- so impressed with the actors, they're so good. They have to learn so much material on a day-to-day basis. You know, ten years ago I had a better memory than now, so I was a little intimidated, but it worked out great."
