It’s been awhile since shippers of Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) and Carly Corinthos Jacks (Laura Wright) had something to be cheerful about when it comes to their favorite too perfect for each other couple, but this week they finally got some e’s of glee – Sonny and Carly had sex!

Since first getting intimate with each other back in late 1999, when the role of Carly was played by Sarah Brown, the former Mr. and Mrs. C finally put some of their personal differences aside following their very steamy kiss and hit the sheets on the Tuesday, August 19 episode, but when Carly’s boyfriend Franco (Roger Howarth) came home to confront his lady about the kiss he recently became aware of, Carly couldn’t help but think he actually knew that Carly had just finished copulating with Sonny. Of note, during their happy time, Sonny threw the picture of Carly and Franco that was on her nightstand right off, breaking it instantly.

If you’ve been tuning into NBC’s “Days of our Lives” recently and were wondering what exactly Will Horton (Guy Wilson) wrote in great detail about the affair between Abbigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi) and EJ DiMera (James Scott), NBC.com has you covered. The official website for the daytime drama series published the full fictional TruVista Magazine article on Wednesday, August 20, which also includes details not revealed on air.

In the article, Will notes (after providing a full disclosure notice in the fourth paragraph) that his mother, Sami (Alison Sweeney), is “a very complex woman, and when she feels she has been wronged, she will resort to any tactics, however morally questionable, that she feels will vindicate her. In short, she can be conniving and vengeful, making sure that anyone who has crossed her, either personally or in business, will pay a heavy price for the rest of their God given time on this earth. Go ahead and reread that last sentence. No, it’s not one huge typo, nor some sick editor’s prank. It’s the truth.”

In a clip that aired during the Monday, August 18 broadcast of KABC’s “Eyewitness News” at 4:00 PM, reporter George Pennacchio noted time slot changes taking place on the ABC Owned Television (OTV) station beginning Monday, September 8, which finds “General Hospital” returning to its original 25+ year time period of 2:00 PM on the station.

In honor of the change, Pennacchio visited the set of the ABC Daytime drama series to speak with several cast members about what viewers can expect to see in the coming months on the soap. Featured in the report were Dominic Zamprogna (Dante), Sean Blakemore (Shawn), Jason Thompson (Patrick), Laura Wright (Carly), Ryan Paevey (Nathan) and “GH” executive producer Frank Valentini.

“There’s lots going on. Lots of new things happening on the show,” said Zamprogna when asked to share any particulars about what to expect from the soap in the coming weeks and months. Sadly, because the stars have been taught to not say too much when talking about future storylines, Zamprogna could only say, “There’s a lot of twists that you think someone’s got the upperhand and then they don’t. I think it’s going to capture a lot of people.”

In late January, MTV gave a series order to its pilot “Finding Carter,” which follows a teenage girl named Carter (Kathryn Prescott) who discovers that the woman who has been raising her isn’t actually her mother at all. With the pick up, actress Cynthia Watros was forced to vacate the role of “The Young and the Restless’” Kelly Andrews, a role currently portrayed by Cady McClain (ex-Dixie Martin, “All My Children”), as the filming schedule would have conflicted with that of the CBS daytime drama series – “Carter” films in Georgia while “Y&R” films in California. Thankfully, Watros’ decision has paid off. The network announced today that it has picked up the series for a second season that will consist of 12 all-new episodes like it did during its first season. In the series, Watros portrays Carter’s biological mother who seeks to reacquaint herself with her daughter.

She may have helped create one of the most popular and socially engaging television programs on the air today with Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” but that doesn’t mean fans of former “Desperate Housewives” and “The Young and the Restless” actress and entrepreneur Eva Longoria have seen the last of her in front of the camera. FOX announced earlier this evening that Longoria will guest-star for a three-episode arc on the second season of its Golden Globe award winning comedy series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which co-stars former “One Life to Live” actress Melissa Fumero (ex-Adriana Cramer) as Detective Amy Santiago.
