Fans of “All My Children’s” Aiden Turner (ex-Aidan Devane) would agree that he was pretty perfect onscreen, but his off screen perfection has now been shattered. According to TMZ, the Hertfordshire-born actor was arrested for felony domestic violence after he allegedly threw a remote control at his girlfriend’s face!

Reports say that the former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant got into a fight with his gal at their Hollywood apartment — and the tiff ended with him throwing the remote and her suffering a black eye due to the violent shenanigans.

A law enforcement official told TMZ that because the injury was rather mild, Turner will most likely avoid felony charges and instead will face a misdemeanor charge.

Yikes!

Investigation Discovery announced today that it has greenlit a third season of its hit series, “Deadly Affairs.” Hosted by Susan Lucci (“All My Children”), the series provides audiences with titillating tales of murder and mayhem after relationships begin to falter.

The new season will premiere in summer 2014.

“We just can’t get enough of Susan Lucci — our affair with her is out in the open and we couldn’t be happier to continue for a third season,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Military Channel and Destination America.  “Our viewers are often tempted by the suspense of ‘will they or won’t they?’ — and with ‘Deadly Affairs,’ we already know they did — and they probably shouldn’t have!”

During a recent “Days of our Lives” fan event, actor Drake Hogestyn (John Black) told Soap Opera Network that he’d signed a new contract with the sudser, but that’s not all the actor revealed! He’s got a pretty good idea of upcoming story for his alter ego, and he assured us that loyal viewers just might get exactly what they wish for when it comes to the popular pairing of John and Marlena (Deidre Hall).

First thing’s first: Hogestyn admits that it’s sometimes tough to justify the actions his character takes — like John’s choice to break apart Brady (Eric Martsolf) and Kristen (Eileen Davidson) by convincing people that Kristen wanted him for herself — but he says his job isn’t to justify them at all. “You are called talent, and you don’t write the show. Your responsibility is to pick up a script and to the best of your ability, you bring [the writers’] vision onto the screen, regardless of what your interpretation is,” he explains. “You can’t change plot logic or character shading. Even if you develop a character for 25, 28 years, your job as talent is to look at the story and take that story and move it forward in the vision of the writers. And that is the respect that every actor has to have. Once you start blurring that line or changing plot logic, character shading, it just muddies the water and nobody wins.”

As we previously reported, Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco Jones, “General Hospital;” ex-Dominick Marone, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) and “Good Morning America’s” Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery, “All My Children”) have teamed up for a Hallmark Channel project, and the network has released new details. “My Gal Sunday,” which was once rumored to be a pilot for a possible primetime series, has now been confirmed as a Hallmark Movie Channel Original World Premiere movie!

The romantic drama (based of the book of short stories of the same name by author Mary Higgins Clark) follows a husband and wife duo (Mathison and “Clueless” star Rachel Blanchard) whose private eye backgrounds and political ties place them smack dab in the middle of intrigue and scandal.

Actress Paula Garces (“Devious Maids;” ex-Lea Marquez, “All My Children”) and her husband, Antonio Hernandez, have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving: On Wednesday, November 20, the couple welcomed their first child together into the world!

“After a difficult 14-hour labor, my mom had to have an emergency c-section,” the actress’ daughter, Skye, told People of her new sibling, Antonio Andres Hernandez. “My brother was born beautiful and healthy, thank God, and mom is doing well, also.”

Congratulations to the family!

Longtime viewers of “Days of our Lives” have seen Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) live up to his last name on more than one occasion. The recovering addict has experienced a lot of misery in his life — both of others’ doing, as well as his own — which has led him down some pretty dark paths in recent years. But when Soap Opera Network caught up with Martsolf to discuss his alter ego’s weeks ahead, the Pennsylvania native revealed that Kristen’s betrayal has sent Brady reeling — and this time, the CEO’s dark descent into addiction, depression and self-destruction might take him so far down, he won’t be able to get back up!

It’s not uncommon for soap opera stars to appear in music videos (we’ve even done features about it in the past), but “General Hospital’s” Sean Kanan (A.J. Quartermaine; ex-Deacon Sharpe, “The Bold and the Beautiful”/“The Young and the Restless”) and his wife, Michele Kanan, have turned the tables: The duo actually made their own music video specifically about the genre!

If you’ve been enjoying the dynamic between “Days of our Lives” Theresa (Jen Lilley), Shane (Charles Shaughnessy) and Kimberly (Patsy Pease), you’re not the only one! Shaughnessy and Pease shared their thoughts on the parent/daughter relationship with Soap Opera Network last week, and Lilley is now weighing in on the dramatic storyline!

“Oh, Theresa is not happy about her parents dropping into Salem at all!” the Virginia native says with a laugh, explaining that Shane and Kimberly haven’t exactly been the greatest parents of all time. “Kimberly had a sordid past… We’ve all made mistakes. I think if you’re a human being, and you’ve lived under the sun, we’ve all done something we’ve regretted. And Kimberly did turn her past around. She became a child psychologist, [but because of that], she and Theresa have had a rough relationship. Kimberly was always trying to psychoanalyze her, she’s always trying to diagnose her, which is really hard. Theresa felt like her whole life, she was Kimberly’s patient and not her daughter. And then Shane was the dad who would swoop in randomly and be try to be like, ‘You should listen to your mother!’ And it’s like, ‘Dude, you’re a spy, and I really don’t even know you.’ So I think she’s uncomfortable with the weight of the world that’s hit her.”
