Genoa City is getting a famous new resident: Family Ties alum Meredith Baxter. TV Guide reveals that the actress is joining the cast of The Young and the Restless.

She'll make her debut on Sept. 8 as Maureen, a woman who becomes the drinking buddy of recovering alcoholic Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

A CBS rep spills even more about the new Y&R character, who is described as a "charming, intelligent, middle-class woman who has always aspired to a more privileged life than she's had."

She appears kind and sympathetic, but can be quite manipulative. She is skilled at getting people to do the things she wants them to do by making them think it's their idea! When not hitting the sauce with her new drinking-buddy, Nikki, Maureen will be crossing with several key players on the Y&R canvas.

Dra-ma!
