    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — If you thought you couldn't learn anything about love while watching daytime soap operas, other than "Who's the Daddy?," Beliefnet.com's Hillary Fields has compiled a list of 11 love lessons learned while watching soaps.

    "Soap operas are my big guilty pleasure," said Fields in her report. "Yes, the acting is melodramatic and the storylines are sometimes so over the top they make the plot twists on "Lost" look logical, but still, there's a lot you can learn from [these] daytime dramas."

    1. Don't Keep Secrets
    EJ (James Scott,"Days of our Lives") needs to learn that.

    2. It's OK to Take a Chance on Love
    Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson, "The Young and the Restless"), you can take a Chance on Chance (John Driscoll).

    3. Respect Others' Personal Space
    Annie (Melissa Claire Egan, "All My Children") sure isn't respecting JR's (Jacob Young).

    4. Don't Make the Same Mistake Twice
    How about 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, etc times? Erica Kane (Susan Lucci, "All My Children") has done it often.

    5. Don't Lie
    Too many liars to list in daytime.

    6. Don't Assume the Worst of Others (but Don't Turn Your Back on an Enemy Either)
    Luke (Anthony Geary, "General Hospital") and Helena (Constance Towers) do it often.

    7. Don't Stray
    Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin, "Days of our Lives") is notorious for doing this. First with Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), now with Daniel (Shawn Christian).

    8. Let Calmer Heads Prevail
    Greenlee (Rebecca Budig, "All My Children") could learn from this.

    9. Be Discreet
    Vivian (Louise Sorel, "Days of our Lives") is bad at this.

    10. Talk Is Great, But It's No Substitute for Action
    "Days of our Lives" is known for having its characters be talking heads.

    11. Wear Elegant Clothing—to Everything
    If nothing else, "The Bold and the Beautiful" is about fashion and style.

      (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — While there is heavy emphasis on the all important Women 18-49 demographic, which is how most advertising inventory is sold for the daytime soaps, Soap Opera Network has found that daytime programs including "The View" and both editions of "The Price is Right" are in fact viewed in greater proportions by Women 25-54.

      (Editor's Note: Ratings data is based on Live+Same Day for the Week of May 24, 2010. Last weeks report was incorrectly labeled for said week, but was in fact for the Week of May 17, 2010).

      During the Week of May 24, 2010, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" not only dominated in Total Viewers, Households, and Women 18-49, the soap also had a strong hold in Women 25-54 with a 2.1/14 rating or 1.3 million Women 25-54 viewers, which was a loss of 9% year-to-year in both categories. ABC's "The View" was next in the number two spot in full daytime with a 1.5/11 or 958,000 Women 25-54. "The View" was down 6% in rating and 4% in viewers. Otherwise, when comparing just the soaps, "General Hospital" and "One Life to Live" tied at #2 with a 1.4/9. "GH" is down 18% year-to-year in Women 25-54, while "OLTL" is down a mere 7%. "GH" had 11,000 more Women 25-54 viewers than "OLTL" (901,000 vs 890,000). Daytime's least watched program is "As The World Turns," which is down 17% year-to-year in rating (1.0/7 vs 1.2/7) and 17% in Women 25-54 viewers (634,000 vs 765,000).

            Llanview Gossip: June 8 Edition

            (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The latest buzz for “One Life to Live.”

            Soap Opera Digest reports that John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex) recently signed a new four-year deal with the show. Lavoisier joined the cast in 2002.

            Sean Ringgold (Shaun) will lend his voice to upcoming new “Smurfs” feature film. He will voice the character of “Bubba.” Filming began on March 26th, and a release date has been set for July 29, 2011. “Day one Shooting the Movie ” SMURFS” Playing the Role of BUBBA. Very Excited to be working with Hank AZARIA. I think all the kids will get a good laugh. I have to thank all my supportive FaceBook Family who always show love. You have no idea how much your words inspire me to keep pushing Forward. Bless You All,” Ringgold comments on his Facebook page. The cast also includes Neil Patrick Harris as Johan, Katy Perry as the voice of Smurfette, Hank Azaria as Gargamel and Paul Reubens as the voice of Jokey Smurf, among others. 

            Even though he has only appeared in two episodes thus far, many “OLTL” fans are bombarding the net with petitions wanting to see more of Max Tapper and the character of Detective Price. But is more of the newcomer on the way, or have we seen the last of Llanview’s newest cop?

            Terrell Tilford (Greg) seemed a little less than thrilled on his Twitter page on Monday evening, tweeting that he “Just found out I’m shooting tomorrow…someone screwed-up MAJORLY!!! I have 15 scenes to shoot and JUST got the script….I’m grateful, but PISSED!!!!”

            Steph Garcia comments on her web site that she “Filmed another episode [as a Buenos Dias Waitress] of One Life to Live to air July 22nd!”

            “One Life to Live” has released more information regarding a recent audition script for a “Private Investigator.” The soap is looking for an African-American actor in their mid-30s for the recurring role, which is described as “charming, good looking, and extremely successful.”

            “OLTL” Music Director Paul Glass tweets that song at the end of the June 1st episode was Keane’s “My Shadow.”

            And former “One Life” star Danneel Harris (ex-Shannon) married her boyfriend Jensen Ackles (ex-Eric, “Days of Our Lives”) were married on May 15th in Dallas.
