So just how is Egan taking in all of the madness surrounding Adam’s big return from the “dead,” including the fact that the character is now being played by Justin Hartley? — Steven Bergman Photography as used on https:// data-medium-file="https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/08/chrishellstause_justinhartley_02_4x5-240x300.jpg" data-large-file="https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/08/chrishellstause_justinhartley_02_4x5.jpg" class="size-full wp-image-39004" src="https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/08/chrishellstause_justinhartley_02_4x5.jpg" alt="Steven Bergman Photography" width="400" height="500" srcset="https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/08/chrishellstause_justinhartley_02_4x5400w, https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/08/chrishellstause_justinhartley_02_4x5-120x150120w, https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/08/chrishellstause_justinhartley_02_4x5-240x300240w, https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/08/chrishellstause_justinhartley_02_4x5-336x420336w" sizes="(max-width: 400px) 100vw, 400px" / Fans have been buzzing about Adam’s grand return to Genoa City for months, but it seems that nobody is more excited that Hartley will be in the character’s shoes than Egan.
And she has good reason: The former “Revenge” actor just happens to be the real-life boyfriend of her real-life best friend, Chrishell Stause (Jordan Ridgeway, “Days of our Lives;” ex-Amanda Dillon, “All My Children”)!
And she and Billy have had a tumultuous relationship since she came to Genoa City.
Obviously, when she came to town three years ago, it was on much worse terms, and she was really trying to mess with Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and extort them; she was not a good person.
We are so lucky to have him.” And, if she’s going to be making out with someone, it may as well be her best friend’s boyfriend, right?!
“No matter who was playing Adam right now, their relationship would be a lot different because of everything that’s happened over the past year,” she explains, adding that she’s intrigued by what element Hartley will bring to the couple’s onscreen dynamic.

I feel like that’s going to be such a shocker, such an explosive thing, and then, on top of it, it’s like, ‘Oh my God, you’re alive,’ but then, ‘Oh my God, you lied to me, you killed this little girl and didn’t tell me about it, and then you let me remarry you?!
As fans may recall, Chelsea really held onto the belief that her husband wasn’t really dead for quite some time. ’ There are so many elements to the story, so I’m so excited to see what happens.” Photo Credit: Sean Smith/JPI Studios as used on https:// data-medium-file="https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/10/burgessjenkins_melissaclaireegan_park_6x4-300x188.jpg" data-large-file="https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/10/burgessjenkins_melissaclaireegan_park_6x4.jpg" class="size-full wp-image-41272" src="https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/10/burgessjenkins_melissaclaireegan_park_6x4.jpg" alt="Sean Smith/JPI Studios" width="640" height="400" srcset="https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/10/burgessjenkins_melissaclaireegan_park_6x4640w, https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/10/burgessjenkins_melissaclaireegan_park_6x4-150x94150w, https://media.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/10/burgessjenkins_melissaclaireegan_park_6x4-300x188300w" sizes="(max-width: 640px) 100vw, 640px" / However, though Chelsea has a right to be upset with Adam for how he left town, one could argue that he’ll have an equally sound reason to be upset with her due to the fact that she moved on romantically with Billy (Burgess Jenkins), of all people!
“Who knows how Adam is going to come back — that’s a mystery and I can’t say — but let’s say Chelsea realizes that it’s Adam down the road.
I don’t think she’s going to be very happy with him.
