Soap opera fans may best know actress June Squibb from her 2008-2009 stint as Katherine Chancellor’s (Jeanne Cooper) diner friend, Pearl, on “The Young and the Restless,” but the rest of the world will see her shine at this year’s Academy Awards for her role in Alexander Payne’s film, “Nebraska.”
Even though she’s on “Days of our Lives,” hosts “The Biggest Loser,” and graces the covers of countless magazines, the world just can’t seem to get enough of Alison Sweeney (Sami Brady). And now fans of the busy mom of two have another venture to look forward to: Her new book, “Scared Scriptless.”
According to TV Guide Canada's Greg David, Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment, was asked by reporters today during the 2014 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour to comment on the allegations surrounding the firing of Michael Muhney as Adam Newman on the network's "The Young and the Restless."
