She’s been with some of Salem’s most prominent men, but is “Days of our Lives’” Samantha (Alison Sweeney) tough enough to handle late night talk show host Jay Leno? That was the question when the “The Tonight Show” host ran over to the “DAYS” set to profess his love for Sami!
If you think you know everything there is to know about “The Young and the Restless’” sexy star, Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby), you’d better think again! Soap Opera Network caught up with the actor during the sudser’s 40th Anniversary Celebration, and he let us in on a few secrets — including the fact that he’s a sucker for all things wedding!
While many guys would much prefer guns, bombs and business to the generally more feminine love, romance and courtship, Goddard isn’t one of them. “I’ve had a lot of action sequences; I was on a show before that was an action-based show [“Beast Master”], and for me now, it’s all about just connecting with the audience and with what I think the audience is responding to,” he says. “This is daytime, and it’s about love and romance.”
Just as “General Hospital’s” Julie Marie Berman (ex-Lulu Spencer) started dusting off her daytime shoes, primetime came calling: She’s set to appear on CBS’ popular sitcom, “Two and a Half Men”! But just what’s in store for the actress when she joins the show’s stars, John Cryer (Alan) and Ashton Kutcher (Walden)?
Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that “One Life to Live’s” Kassie DePaiva (Blair Manning) took to song yesterday during scenes filmed on the Stamford, CT set of the drama series as cast members were left in awe of the power in her voice. DePaiva sang her hit single, “No Regrets,” from her 2004 CD of the same name.
In the emotional scene, Blair takes to song in her new nightclub, Shelter, after things hit a snag for the new establishment. Todd Manning (Roger Howarth) insists Blair entertain the crowd until things can be returned to normal. “No Regrets” features lyrics that are a subtle hint to Todd that Blair’s not over him.
As noted yesterday for “All My Children,” Hulu and TOLN have also released a billboard for “One Life to Live.” With the tag, “Who Says You’ve Only Got One Life to Live?” fans out of the loop will surely be in for a surprise when they see their favorite characters from Llanview have returned.
As previously reported, departing “General Hospital” star Brandon Barash (Johhny Zacchara) will appear in the Monday, April 15 episode of FOX’s “Bones,” entitled “The Party in the Pants.” Now you can get your first look as Barash’s character appears scared for his life…or is he?
In the episode, Barash portrays a good-looking yet aging exotic dancer named Storm (how appropriate), who previously helped the episode’s victim get into stripping. In addition to a little skin from the sexy stud, the episode also features a guest appearance from Joanna Cassidy (“Body of Proof,” “Six Feet Under”), who’s revealed as Booth’s (David Boreanaz) mom.
In celebration of the 50th anniversary of ABC’s “General Hospital,” Jason Thompson (Patrick Drake) and Finola Hughes (Anna Devanne) worked together and just missed taking home $500,000 for their charity, The Art of Elysium (http://www.theartofelysium.org), a non-profit organization that works closely with actors, artists and musicians, encouraging them to volunteer their time and talent to children battling serious medical conditions, on Disney/ABC Domestic Television’s “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.” After appearing on the Monday, April 1 and Tuesday, April 2 episodes, the duo walked away with the guaranteed bank of $250,000.
IT HAPPENED TODAY…
At Forrester, Rick and Eric observed some models wearing new lingerie designs. Aside from a few little details, Eric approved. Taylor, followed by Thomas arrived and Thomas hissed that the lingerie won’t do for the company what his ideas would have done. Rick disagreed. Taylor sided with her son and warned that Brooke would bring nothing but scandal. She argued that Bill being behind the launch, combined with Brooke being a press favorite, was toxic for the company. Rick welcomed tabloids and social media buzzing about Brooke and accused Taylor of being stuck in the dark ages. Taylor said it wasn’t wise to put all their eggs in one basket and that this would all amount to an invitation to disaster. Thomas of course agreed. Eric said he knew the line could bring consequences but he won’t change his mind. Rick was confident the line would be a huge hit and Eric will be lauded around the world. Taylor hoped Rick was right because if he wasn’t, not only would the company suffer, but lives will be ruined.
