    With the news that "Days of our Lives" has let Gary Tomlin go as co-executive producer and Soap Opera Network unable to confirm who is replacing him at this time, rumors began swirling that actor Mark Hapka would be returning to the daytime drama series just days after reportedly stating that someone in particular (possibly Tomlin) was in the way of his employment with the show.
  • ‘Days of our Lives’ Executive Producer Gary Tomlin Fired!

    After a week of unconfirmed (by the show) firings of numerous actors, NBC's "Days of our Lives" has now fired its co-executive producer, Gary Tomlin. The news was first reported by TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco on Twitter. News of Tomlin's firing comes on the heals of last months firing of head writer Dena Higley and the recent firings of actors Crystal Chappell (Carly Manning), Louise Sorel (Vivian Alamain), Bren Foster (Quinn Hudson), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane), and Tamara Braun (Taylor Walker).
  • CONFIRMED: Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo Leaving ‘General Hospital’

    On Monday, May 23, three days after news broke that Ingo Rademacher (Jasper 'Jax' Jacks) had been fired by ABC's "General Hospital," Soap Opera Network tweeted that we had exclusively learned that Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda Barrett Corinthos) would be the next actor leaving the daytime drama series. On Thursday, May 26, just before the long Memorial Day Weekend, the actress confirmed our report when she revealed that her days with the soap were numbered via her Twitter page. Interestingly, the actress has been tweeting up a storm since revealing the news while keeping mum for nearly 3 months on her twitter account (it had previously been crickets since February of this year). Marcil Giovinazzo's confirmation follows months of rumors since she revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood Live back in March that she was on her way out.
