It was one year ago this month when word broke that actress Camryn Grimes would be returning to CBS' "The Young and the Restless" after previously portraying the beloved Cassie Newman on the soap from 1997-2005, when the character was killed off following a horrific car accident, and on a less frequent basis as the ghost of Cassie from that point through and up to 2010.
CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" celebrated its 27th anniversary last month, which happened to coincide with yet another international trip - Dubai and Abu Dhabi. But it is the show's principle Southern California setting that has truly helped the series shine after all these years. Beginning today, CBS.com has launched "The Bold and the Beautiful On Location,” a new interactive feature that gives fans a virtual tour to 22 locations throughout Southern California, where the daytime soap has filmed some of its most memorable scenes.

After her daughter died last year as a result of a hit-and-run, a desperate Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) will attempt everything in her power to have another child with Billy Abbott (David Tom), even going so far as to drug and "seduce" the married man into having sex with her. The question is, is it a "sinful seduction" or an outright rape? In a newly released promo for next week's episodes of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," the series calls what Chloe is doing to get her hands on Billy's crown jewels (pun intended) as a sinful seduction, but visually it's clear that Billy isn't even conscious for Chloe's plan. Meanwhile, Billy is also unknowingly already dealing with another set of baby drama. It turns out that his wife, Victoria (Amelia Heinle), is pregnant! The only problem is that it could be Billy's, or it could be Stitch's (Sean Carrigan). As for Ian Ward (Ray Wise), he better not get in the way of his son Dylan (Steve Burton) when it comes to the woman he loves, or he'll end up paying the ultimate price.
As previously reported, former "All My Children" star Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) is joining the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" as a recast Ben Rogers. The actor replaces Justin Gaston, who in real-life is married to “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman). Gaston was let go after his 13-week contract cycle was not picked up.
Beginning Thursday, May 8 and running through Tuesday, May 13, ABC's "General Hospital" will present the 2014 Nurses Ball sponsored by Yoplait Greek Yogurt. ABC.com recently published photos on its website providing viewers with a sneak peek at the event as well as some behind the scenes shots.
Congratulations are in order for Bradford Anderson (ex-Damian Spinelli, "General Hospital") and wife, Kiera, as the couple welcomed their newest bundle of joy on Friday, May 2, just one day after learning Anderson had received his fifth Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

"It's the true-life story of young, single women screwing up, falling down, causing a scene, making a mess — and living to tell the tale." No, that is not the description of "Girls," the HBO comedy series created by and starring Lena Dunham. It is actually the basis of "Hot Mess," a web series where seven actresses reenactment real-life situations that at times leaves viewers questioning how one could have ever let something like that happen , but ultimately glad it never happened to them.
As previously reported, Michelle Stafford (ex-Phyllis Summers, "The Young and the Restless") has joined the cast of ABC's "General Hospital" as the not so comatose Nina Clay, Silas' (Michael Easton) until recently thought to be dead wife. With ABC promising fans that the truth surrounding Nina’s mysterious circumstances will reveal itself in the weeks and months to come, as her tangled web of family history starts to unravel, the network is providing viewers with a snippet of Stafford's debut in case they missed it when it aired on Thursday, May 1.
Just one day after NBC's "Days of our Lives" received the good news from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences that it was nominated for Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, among its 14 total nominations, for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, comes word that the daytime soap is saying goodbye to one of its leading men. Soap Opera Digest is reporting that James Scott (EJ DiMera) completes filming at The Burbank Studios today, May 2, after an eight year run with the show.
When Bradford Anderson woke up this morning he didn't immediately know that he had received his fifth Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Damian Spinelli on ABC's "General Hospital." How is that even possible, you ask? "I sleep with my phone off," the actor admits. "That's the fun thing about being on the west coast. You generally wake up to the news." He adds, "Just turning on my phone and seeing how many emails and texts I get is generally an indication of a 'yay' or a 'nay.'"
She departed CBS' "The Young and the Restless" last year with her character Phyllis Summers in a coma, and now Michelle Stafford has returned to daytime with a new role on "General Hospital" as the comatose Nina Clay. An ironic character choice for sure, but ABC promises fans that the truth surrounding Nina's mysterious circumstances will reveal itself in the weeks and months to come, as her tangled web of family history starts to unravel. But until then fans are left wondering how the show managed to keep such a reveal so secret and how it all actually came together.
