July 23, 2004 -- THREE of those sexy young women from "America's Next Top Model" have landed temporary gigs on CBS soap operas.
Mercedes Yvette, right, and Catie Anderson, who appeared on the second season of the hit UPN reality show will play runway models on "The Bold and the Beautiful" in a faux fashion show staged for the soap on July 27, 28 and August 3.
Robbyne Manning, from the reality show's first season, turned up on "The Young and the Restless" last week as a woman touring a refurbished rec center.
Yvette, 21, a former waitress from Valencia, Calif., became a fan favorite when she defended her "Top Model" co-contestant Yoanna House after another contestant tried to spread a rumor that Yoanna had an eating disorder.
"Top Model," created and produced by supermodel Tyra Banks, airs on UPN, the sister network of CBS.
