(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- During his annual fan event with his onscreen wife Florencia Lozano (Téa) last weekend, Trevor St. John (Todd) talked about his predecessor Roger Howarth's return to the show, and what character he thinks he'll be playing. St. John tells Soap Opera Digest that "I'm not familiar with his work so I can't tell you what he's like to work with, but I think it's great for the show. There are all these rumors , so I think it will at least give it a ratings boost.

That's the only way you can do it. Logically, speaking." Lozano also chimed in, joking that "Unless Téa's the real Todd! You...
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- The reality television darling told "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno earlier this month that after her one-day acting stint on "One Life to Live" as ambulance chaser Kassandra Kavanaugh (and yes, that's with two K's) she "felt like a prostitute. Like, being paid to kiss someone." And to think that for decades Hollywood has called it acting. Guess that means that hundreds of people pimp themselves out every time they appear in a television show, either daytime or primetime...we may never look at Susan Lucci, Erika Slezak, or Jeanne Cooper the same way ever again.  Well, it is the world's oldest profession after all.  But hey, at least she nailed (no pun intended) her scenes after all. Right? Well, not exactly; instead the criticism has been so harsh that Kardashian's own mother has been forced to jump to her daughter's defense. In an interview with "Access Hollywood,"...
