Susan Flannery Added to Today’s Book Signing

Saturday, August 18, 2012 2:15 AM EDT
Soap Opera Network has learned that Susan Flannery (Stephanie Forrester, "The Bold and the Beautiful") has been added to the "Young and Restless Life of William J. Bell" book signing being held today from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM at Barnes & Noble located at 4820 Telephone Road Ventura, CA 93003.
As we have been reporting for the past week, "Days of our Lives" actress Melissa Reeves (Jennifer Horton) has been embroiled in a controversy over a recent tweet she made to her followers about free speech. "Chick-fil-a today!!!! Loved every bite of it;)!! Land of the free and home of the brave. Love that we all appreciate free speech, right?” said Reeves on Tuesday, August 1. Since that day several people, including fans of Reeves, and of her show, have bombarded the actress with responses that either agree with her comment, call for her to apologize and/or clarify her statement, or used unmentionable language against her. Some of her daytime brethren have also spoken out on the issue, but not as harshly. On Thursday, August 16, Reeves finally responded by deleting her Twitter account...but not before making a bold statement.

‘B&B’ Signs Katherine Kelly Lang To New Contract

A week after word leaked that Ronn Moss (Ridge Forrester) opted not to renew his contract, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," now in its 26th season, has worked overtime to not lose another member of its "core four" (the soaps four original cast members).
Next week Investigation Discovery invites you to spend your afternoons with Josh and Reva Shayne ("Guiding Light"), or at least with their portrayers Robert Newman and Kim Zimmer, as the network launches "Days of our Knives," a programming initiative aimed at Women 25-54.
"Yesterday, I found out I was pregnant...actually, in the same day they told me I had cancer and then I didn't, I was pregnant," says Blanca Soto, a Telenovela star of her character Camila Nájera de Negrete on "El Talismán" (aka: The Talisman). If that plot twist sounds familiar to you, it's because that's generally the storyline twists and turns we've come to expect on American daytime soap operas. The only difference is more viewers are tuning into Telenovelas on networks such as Univision and Telemundo than they are on ABC, CBS, or NBC, who are consistently losing viewers in record numbers. In a new report by ABC News, "Nightline" reporter Matt Gutman explores how telenovelas are thriving while American soaps are struggling to survive.
A number of syndicated programs hit their season lows during the week of July 30, 2012 thanks to the Olympics on NBC, while others were so heavily preempted that Nielsen Media Research excluded them from the weekly ratings averages, which was the case for Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution's (WBDTD)' "Anderson," "Ellen" and "Extra," and CBS Television Distribution's (CTD) "Rachael Ray" and "The Doctors." In the case of daytime talker "Live! with Kelly," however, the show hit its lowest ratings in more than 20 years.
