The Talk” co-host Sheryl Underwood received a late holiday surprise during the show on Tuesday, when “The Young and the Restless” star Christian LeBlanc dropped by with cocktails for the talk show crew as well as an announcement for major “Y&R” fan Underwood. LeBlanc informed her that the co-host was being cast as a Justice of the Peace for an upcoming wedding on the daytime drama, shocking Underwood. (The couple getting married was kept under wraps.)

“After extensive searching –and we were desperate –who do we need bad on ‘The Young and the Restless?’ Let me just say, you had me on the single ladies routine,” said LeBlanc. “You are going to have a part on ‘The Young & The Restless’ as a Justice of the Peace, and you’ll be performing a wedding. A very important wedding on the show….and that’s all we can tell you.”

Underwood will visit the set sometime next week for tape her part.
