Marissa wants to give JR another shot. Bianca says she just wants Marissa to be happy. Bianca snaps at a guy flirting with her at the bar and tells Kendall she is sick and tired of not feeling safe wherever she goes and she’s trying to shake the bad memories of Ricky & Michael Cambias. When Marissa checks up on Bianca, Bianca admits to Kendall that she can’t lean on her friend because she is falling in love with her. Angry at Scott over his close relationship with Marissa, JR calls Marissa to come meet him at the bar claiming he was hit by a mystery man. Scott shows up and takes the blame, saying he hit JR for no reason.

After bringing up some boxes of designer clothes to her room, Colby gives them to Maya. She opens up about Asher and later tells him that she is scaling back from her vlog so she can help him with his recovery. Colby overhears Maya’s call and assumes she must be talking to a boyfriend. Maya denies, claiming it was her aunt, but when she’s alone she gets back on the phone & tells the person on the other end that she cannot see him tonight.

Liza thinks she can get Griffin off and Tad is grateful. He offers to tell Colby what her mother is doing in the hopes it might help heal their relationship.

Cara tries setting up Griffin and Kendall. Griffin tells Kendall he thinks it’s for the best if he leave Pine Valley after the charges against him are dropped.

Griffin tells his sister he knows what she’s trying to do by setting up him and Kendall. He thinks it’s because she doesn’t want him to miss out on something she wishes she had gone after with Jake. Tad tells Cara that Liza wants to meet with Griffin and is trying to get the charges dropped. He admits he’s not only doing it for Griffin but for her as well.

On the Next All My Children…

        Mitchell Haaseth/NBC

        ( — With the news that “Days of our Lives” has let Gary Tomlin go as co-executive producer and Soap Opera Network unable to confirm who is replacing him at this time, rumors began swirling that actor Mark Hapka would be returning to the daytime drama series just days after reportedly stating that someone in particular (possibly Tomlin) was in the way of his employment with the show.

        According to a report on, the website stated that his character, Nathan Horton, will ” return from Baltimore a stronger person, persistent to get Melanie (Molly Burnett) away from Dario Hernandez (Francisco San Martin).” Hapka originally joined the “DAYS” cast in June 2009 until he was let go in January of this year.

        While looking to confirm Hapka’s return, a “Days of our Lives” representative was unavailable for comment.

        Aaron Montgomery/JPI

        After a week of unconfirmed (by the show) firings of numerous actors, NBC’s “Days of our Lives” has now fired its co-executive producer, Gary Tomlin. The news was first reported by TV Guide Canada‘s Nelson Branco on Twitter. News of Tomlin’s firing comes on the heels of last months firing of head writer Dena Higley and the recent firings of actors Crystal Chappell (Carly Manning), Louise Sorel (Vivian Alamain), Bren Foster (Quinn Hudson), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane), and Tamara Braun (Taylor Walker).

        It was in August 2008 when Executive Producer Ken Corday announced the hiring of Tomlin after confirming the ouster of Ed Scott.

        “I have decided that it’s in the best interest of the show’s future to make this change in order to improve ‘Days’ both visually and emotionally,” said Corday at the time. “We at ‘Days’ are grateful to Ed Scott for all of his contributions and amazing energy over the past year. Gary Tomlin brings a long successful history of being an actor’s producer and a writer’s producer to our cast and crew and I know the viewers will see the immediate results of this change for the better.” Unfortunately for Tomlin his services were deemed no longer necessary.

        At this time no replacement had been named nor was it clear whether or not Corday would take on all executive producer responsibilities himself.

        Prior to joining “DAYS,” Tomlin began his career in daytime in 1973, when he was cast in the contract role of Bruce Carson on “Search for Tomorrow.” He later appeared as Morgan Simpson on NBC’s “Another World” in 1979. From 1980-1981, he was co-head writer of “DAYS” with Michelle Poteet-Lisanti. Later, he went on to co-head write at his old stomping ground, “Another World” for two years starting in 1984. In the late 1980′s/early 1990′s, Tomlin began writing scripts for “Santa Barbara” and directing episodes for both “Another World” and “One Life to Live.” In 1995 he joined “All My Children” as a producer. Upon the debut of NBC’s “Sunset Beach” in 1997 through its last airing in 1999, Tomlin was credited as the shows Executive Producer. He served as a director at NBC’s “Passions” from 2000-2001 and again from April 25, 2003 – April 2, 2008. He joined “One Life to Live” as its Executive Producer in November 2000, but his first credited episodes did not air until January 2001. He left the ABC soap in August 2003. He was immediately replaced by current “One Life” Executive Producer, Frank Valentini. Tomlin won the soap its one and only Outstanding Drama Series Daytime Emmy Award in 2003.

        Due to its advanced filming schedule, Tomlin will be credited as EP until episodes scheduled to air in late August/early September.

        A “Days of our Lives” representative was unavailable for comment at press time.

              Eva LaRue Returns to 'All My Children' this July

              ( — Another name has been added to the growing list of former “All My Children” stars who have returned or are confirmed to be returning to bid the ABC soap adieu before taping concludes on September 2. So far, that list includes Josh Duhamel, Cady McClain, Thorsten Kaye and Shannon Kane. This evening, in a press release, ABC reveals that “CSI: Miami” star Eva LaRue will join that returning group. The 44-year-old stunner is due to bring Dr. Maria Santos Grey back to Pine Valley this July.

              LaRue starred on the ABC soap from March 1993 to August 1997 and from June 2002 to June 2005. Her electric chemistry with co-star John Callahan, who played her husband Edmund Grey, translated into a real-life romance. The couple made their union official with a 1996 wedding. In 2001, the relationship produced a daughter, Kaya. LaRue and Callahan divorced in 2004. The actress married Joe Cappuccio in 2010. LaRue’s first husband was “Seinfeld” and “Dancing with the Stars” star John O’Hurley. LaRue is best friends with Sarah Michelle Gellar, who played Kendall Hart on “All My Children” from 1993 to 1995. As previously reported, Gellar has also expressed interest in doing a cameo appearance.

              Before landing “All My Children,” the Daytime Emmy nominated actress guest-starred on numerous series including FOX’s “Married… with Children.” In between stints at the soap, she appeared on multi-episode arcs of the NBC drama “Third Watch” and the ABC comedy “George Lopez.” After her last exit from “All My Children” in 2005, LaRue landed a series regular role on the popular CBS procedural drama “CSI: Miami” as Detective Natalia Boa Vista. The actress who remains a fan of the ABC soap that put her on the map also returned for an appearance on its 40th Anniversary episode in 2010. LaRue has taken home two ALMA Awards and one Gracie Allen Award during her career.

              A spokesperson for the talented actress tells Soap Opera Network that, as of now, the actress is signed on for two episodes. LaRue is slated to tape those episodes next week. Dr. Santos first episode back airs on Tuesday, July 19. Update on 6/13/11: Over the weekend, La Rue expanded to Entertainment Tonight that after completing filming of the two episodes this week – these initial episodes will be related to Dr. David Hayward played by Vincent Irizarry – she’ll return “during the course of the summer” to tape three more episodes. “CSI: Miami” will resume taping for the Fall season around that time but the schedules are not expected to conflict.
