It seems everyone is hopping aboard the healthy living train these days, and the cast of “Days of our Lives” isn’t excluded: Several of the sudser’s stars have opened up and shared their secrets on how to live a healthier and more balanced life for the show’s newest book, Better Living: Cast Secrets for a Healthier Balanced Life, which hits newsstands on Tuesday, September 24! And with just 19 more days to go until the big day, several of the stars featured are gearing up for a national tour to promote the book that they’re hoping will change your lives forever!
Anyone who’s been watching “The Young and the Restless” knows that the mother of all babydaddy storylines is about to play out between Chelsea McAvoy (Melissa Claire Egan) and Adam Newman (Michael Muhney), meaning that the cacophony of sweet “oohs” and “aahs” recently heard over baby Conner will quickly be turning into a frenzy of screaming arguments! Soap Opera Network sat down with Muhney to get his take on how his alter ego is going to react to the news that Chelsea’s baby is really his own, and the actor teases that the drama to come will make you cry like a — you guessed it — baby!
It was a rare day when “All My Children’s” Greenlee helped anyone but herself, but it’s a whole different story for her former portrayer, Rebecca Budig, whose new gig is exactly the opposite! It was just announced this morning that the Emmy-nominated actress has been named co-host for ‘The Better Show,’ an information talk show that incorporates Better Homes and Gardens, Parents, Family Circle, More and Fitness magazines along with entertainment, celebrity interviews, food, fashion and DIY-related content.
We’ve been keeping a little secret for over a month now, and we can finally reveal what we’ve been dying to report: Charles Shaughnessy and Patsy Pease are returning to “Days of our Lives” as Shane Donovan and Kimberly Brady!
As previously reported, "One Life to Live" has become an apparent (albeit possibly temporarily) casualty of the lawsuit between Prospect Park and the ABC Television Network, which the latter canceled in April 2011 after opting to restructure its daytime lineup. Erika Slezak, who has portrayed Victoria Lord on the drama series on both the ABC incarnation and the current Prospect Park/The OnLine Network version for more than 40 years, has released a statement on Prospect's decision to halt production on the soap pending the resolution to its lawsuit against ABC.
Eileen Davidson may still be airing as “Days of our Lives’” Kristen DiMera, but that wasn’t a deal breaker for “The Young and the Restless,” which has signed the actress to return as Ashley Abbot later this year!
The drama just never stops for Prospect Park’s “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” with the latest shocking news regarding the online sudsers coming from the L.A. Times. According to the publication, Prospect Park is shelving ‘One Life to Live’ until the lawsuit it launched against ABC in April is resolved. Additionally, the company will focus on producing “AMC,” with writers having already started work on scripts for the second season of the show.
