            Shameless Tess Turns to Wes for Llanview's Ladies

            ( — After more than 40 years on the air, you would think that “One Life to Live” had done nearly every storyline imaginable, no matter how outrageous, idiotic, or bizarre. But you would be wrong. Starting Wednesday, May 11, D.I.D. patient Jessica Brennan (Bree Williamson) displays an entirely new side to her personality. Fans are already familiar with party girl and wild child Tess and the refined, cold-blooded, methodical Bess, but Jessica’s latest alternate personality will leave a lot to be desired for female viewers.

            While two of the three men in her life are fighting over her, Tess begins to lose her cool. But instead of Jessica or even Bess regaining control, a new person, Wes, named after Brody’s (Mark Lawson) deceased former Navy Seal buddy, whom Marty Saybrooke (Susan Haskell) had a fling with a few years back), takes charge. In the ensuing chaos, look for Wes to hit on some of Llanview’s female residents and act just like one of the boys.

            But how will Ford (David A. Gregory) react when he learns the mother of his child is now a man? Will Cutter (Josh Kelly) be able to coax Tess back out? And will Wes become mixed up in all of Marty’s craziness? Stay tuned to find out!

                'Dating in the Middle Ages' Episode 1: A New Websoap Takes Flight

                ( — For many of you, "Dating in the Middle Ages" may not immediately come to mind when you think of the latest trend hitting the internet – the era of the web soaps, but it is possibly the most fun you'll get out of the non-traditional soap opera. In February, Soap Opera Network conducted a candid interview with creator and star of "Dating in the Middle Ages," Devin Mills, but before we present you with that interview, we thought we'd give you a glimpse at all the fun and crazy antics that will surely turn into a guilty pleasure.

                  Celebrate Mother's Day on SOAPnet With Billionth Rerun of '90210'

                  ( — I'm sure you have better things to do with your life on Mother's Day than spending four hours with the teens at "Beverly Hills, 90210" from 20 years ago, but SOAPnet is airing the billionth marathon of the show on your mom's most important day (besides her own birth and the day you kicked yourself out of her). According to the departing cable network, viewers will be treated to four hours of programming featuring some of the most beloved (and not so beloved) mothers from the popular 90's FOX series. In fact, you can get a chance to revisit Brenda's bond with mom Cindy, Kelly's fights with her mother Jackie, and Steve's jealousy over Samantha. The block of programming begins Sunday, May 8 from 8:00 AM-12:00 PM ET/PT only on SOAPnet (which isn't saying much).

                  SOAPnet's Mother's Day Marathon Schedule

                  • 8AM – Beverly Hills 90210 Episode #1991-006 – “Perfect Mom” – As The Mother/Daughter fashion show at school nears, Brenda is jealous of Kelly’s glamorous mom. However, when Jackie is high on drugs at the show and humiliates herself, Brenda learns to appreciate her own mother more.

                  • 9AM – Beverly Hills 90210 Episode #1992-038 – “Chuckie’s Back” – Steve is angry when his old nemesis, Chuckie, who played his mother’s son on a TV show, starts making his life miserable at school. When Chuckie reveals he’s known for years that Steve is adopted, the tension between Steve and his mother escalates as well.

                  • 10AM – Beverly Hills 90210 Episode #1992-040 – “Fire and Ice” – Brenda is crushed when the new boss she admires so much steals her sales at the store. Brenda and her mother then work together to give the boss a good dose of karma.

                  • 11AM – Beverly Hills 90210 Episode #1993–067 – “Midlife…Now What?” – Brenda and Kelly head to a spa with their mothers for a Mother/Daughter weekend and bring Donna and Andrea along. While there, Kelly discovers that her stepfather is cheating on her mother and has to tell her the painful truth.

                  In a press release issued to Soap Opera Network two days before the cancellations of "All My Children" and One Life to Live," SOAPnet claimed to "own" the world of character-driven soapy drama, from daytime and primetime dramas to reality shows and movies. The network features same-day episodes of popular daytime dramas including "All My Children," "Days of our Lives," "One Life to Live," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless." Too bad not everyone seems to agree.

                    ABC Confirms Postponed Demise of SOAPnet

                    ( — As we reported back on April 25, SOAPnet will not be handing over its valuable cable/satellite space to Disney Junior as soon as expected after a scathing report by revealed the incompetence of numerous Disney executives. Now an ABC representative has confirmed to Soaps in Depth that Deadline was in fact correct in their report, although they didn't touch the poor management issue.

                    Instead of launching in January 2012 as originally thought, SOAPnet Disney Junior is now expected to launch at some point in early 2012 as the Walt Disney Company begins signing new contracts with cable and satellite providers such as Comcast, Time Warner, Cox Communications, DirecTV and Verizon FiOS, just to name a few. The new deals would cover carriage agreements for powerhouses ESPN, Disney Channel, Disney XD, ABC Family and even the ABC Television Network now that it too receives re-transmission fees from cable and satellite operators (courtesy of its Owned & Operated stations).

                    With "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" now set to end prior to the departure of SOAPnet, what could the network possibly air in their place? According to the ABC rep, SOAPnet will "absolutely have programming" in place, but was unable to comment on which programs would replace the two iconic soaps. Sadly, it would most likely turn out to be the 260th marathon of reruns of "Beverly Hills, 90210," since that is what they'll be airing on Mother's Day (May 8).

                    What ever happened to reruns of the soaps that gave the network ratings in the first place?
