While character and storyline details are not yet known, a rep for ABC's "General Hospital" confirms that Shirley Jones, former star of "The Partridge Family" and "Shirley," will appear on the daytime soap opera in an episode airing next month.
When a fan of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" tweeted, "Can all my soap followers do me a favor and send some love and support to @HunterHaleyKing? Thanks! #YR," following reports of an alleged groping of her breasts by King's former co-star Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), who was reportedly fired from the drama series last month as a result of the incident, the quest for love and support for the actress, who plays Summer Newman on the daytime soap opera, came in droves.
Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that Candice Stewart, best known for her stint on last season's "Big Brother," will appear on the Monday, January 13 episode of CBS' "The Young and the Restless."

As fans of "The Young and the Restless" did in March 2011 to protest the supposed firing of cast member Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby), fans of Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) have purchased a flyover of the CBS Television City studio, where the soap is taped, to get their message across to executives of their displeasure in the actor's firing. Only this time they have taken things a step further - they've alerted mainstream media!

Had ABC not canceled "All My Children" back in 2011, and Prospect Park didn't decide to cancel it again in 2013, Agnes Nixon's "All My Children" would have celebrated its 44th anniversary today. Susan Lucci, who portrayed matriarch Erica Kane on the soap, was the only original cast member from the first season of “AMC” that had remained with the show without interruption since its debut on January 5, 1970 through its final ABC broadcast on September 23, 2011.
After someone pulled a social media fast one on fans of ABC's "General Hospital" last week by claiming to be the soap's newest star, Ryan Paevey (Nathan West), the actor's management team confirmed today that the actor is now officially on Twitter.
In a new interview with Highlight Hollywood, former executive producer and head writer of "The Young and the Restless," Maria Arena Bell, has clarified a statement she made in Soap Opera Digest after the publication released their report on Michael Muhney's firing from the daytime drama series. In it, she said, "Michael brought amazing dimension and complexity to the role of Adam Newman, and his and Sharon’s [Sharon Case] was a great dark love story. Sadly, that story was seriously derailed in the last year, so I am not surprised that the show would look for a solution to their problematic storytelling decisions. It will be a tough role to recast." However, with a report by TMZ that says the actor was let go following alleged claims he fondled the breasts of one of his co-stars, Bell now says, "Frankly he should have been let go months before because of his behind the scenes actions."
It had long been rumored and speculated about on social media and message boards, including the SON Community, since word of Michael Muhney's firing from "The Young and the Restless" first came to light. Now, TMZ is reporting that as per their sources, Muhney, 38, was fired for allegedly groping a female co-star's breasts on more than one occasion.
