"Tainted Dreams," the soap within a soap, has announced that former "All My Children" and "Edge of Night" actor Larkin Malloy has joined its cast in the role of Henry Steinman, a director of the fictional soap "Painted Dreams."

On Wednesday, July 17, fans of "One Life to Live's" Ilene Kristen (ex-Roxy Balsom) will get a chance to see the actress sing for a performance at Stage 72 at The Triad in New York City.

As previously reported, OWN has picked up the first 40 episodes of both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" for what they are billing as the "OWN Summer Soap Fling." Episodes begin airing today, July 15. The launch of both soaps will consist of 3 repeat episodes each day and a "brand new" episode airing in each soaps regularly scheduled timeslot (1:00 PM ET/PT for "AMC"; 3:00 PM ET/PT for "OLTL"), according to recently released TV listings and an OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network representative. Actual new episodes of both soaps will continue to release on Mondays via Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes and iTunes Canada.

Fans of ABC's "Revenge" might recall that the primetime soap ended on several cliffhangers, one of which was Victoria Grayson (Madeline Stowe) coming face to face with her forgotten son, Patrick. While we didn't get to see his face, there's a perfectly good reason why. The soap only just cast the actor to take on the role! On Friday, July 12, it was announced that Justin Hartley ("Passions," "Arrow", "Emily Owens M.D.," "Smallville") would portray the character that could be the saving grace Victoria needs in light of some family controversies and murders, or he could be the devil ready to get his own revenge on mommy dearest.

Real life pilot Jake Pavelka, best known as the star of ABC’s 14th season of “The Bachelor” and season two of “Bachelor Pad,” will reprise his role as the pilot of the Forrester private jet on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful." The actor taped his scenes on Friday, June 21, per a tweet in which the actor/reality star said, "Some quick touch ups before filming a scene. This stuff makes my face break out!" The tweet was accompanied by an image showing Pavelka getting ready in hair and makeup. In the background fans can spot Don Diamont's Bill Spencer and an unknown blonde either working through their scripts or their characters going over paperwork.

Tonight OnTV is the season premiere of acclaimed HBO drama series "The Newsroom." Set a year later, and in the days leading up to election night 2012, the “News Night” staff is being prepared to give depositions in a lawsuit — the circumstances of which unfold throughout the season. A mysterious tip has led to the airing of a story with consequences no one could have anticipated.

Beginning Monday, July 15 and lasting through Tuesday, July 23, stars from CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will be tweeting live with fans during the east coast broadcast of the top-rated daytime drama series.

Sparked from a recent conversation he had with producer Matt Tolmach about Mary Jane, or “MJ” as the character is known to fans of the popular comic books, television and movie series, Andrew Garfield tells Entertainment Weekly, “I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ. And I was like, ‘What if MJ is a dude?’ Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking!…So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?” The actor recently completed filming on "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," which is not expected to introduce Peter Parker's (Garfield) well known love interest just yet (the character was not included in 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man").

Cory Monteith, who portrayed Finn Hudson on FOX's "Glee", has died. The actor was found dead in his hotel room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel in Vancouver, British Columbia on Saturday afternoon. It's understood that when Monteith missed his checkout at noon, hotel staff went to his room and found his body. "An autopsy is scheduled for Monday," said Vancouver Acting Police Chief Doug LePard in a press conference. "The Coroner will be determining the next steps with respect to establishing cause of death, but all indications are that there was no foul play."
