The Talk's Natalie Morales is showing off her acting chops. The co-host announced during Tuesday's show that she will be appearing in multiple episodes of CBS' longtime soap, The Young and the Restless

"I have some exciting news to share! Starting next month I have a little role, well, it's a recurring role on the CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless," Morales said. "I am playing investigative reporter Talia Morgan, yes, and I'm investigating Diane Jenkins, played by Susan Walters."

"You know, she's the one who faked her own death. She's returned recently to Genoa City after just being gone for 10 years. It's going to be a lot of fun," she promised.

According to Morales, she'll be primarily sharing scenes with Walters; Melody Thomas Scott, who plays Nikki; and Michelle Stafford, who plays Phyllis. "I'm having so much fun," she shared. "These ladies are incredible."
