As we reported yesterday, Prospect Park Networks — the company behind the online re-launch of soaps “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” — has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. And as news of the latest PPN vs. ABC twist spread, further details were revealed: The production company reportedly owes ABC $1.7 million, and it also owes some big name actors large sums of money, as well!
Eileen Davidson may have just returned to the set of “Days of our Lives” to reprise her role as Kristen DiMera (to air later this summer), but that’s not the only sudser she’ll be appearing on: She’s heading back to “The Young and the Restless” as Ashley Abbott later this month — and Beth Maitland (Traci Abbott) will be joining her!
Newcomer Lupita Nyong'o was unknown to American audiences before her scene-stealing role as slave Patsey in Best Picture Oscar winner "12 Years A Slave." Now, after winning the Best Supporting Actress Oscar (the first African actress to do so) and giving an incredibly moving speech, Nyong'o is on her way to becoming a household name. But did you know that before being cast in "12 Years A Slave," Nyong'o played the lead role on a ground-breaking Kenyan soap opera?
