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.

WATCH: The ‘Hot Mess’ of Life

"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.
In case you were wondering how the networks and the shows stacked up when nominees for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced this morning, Soap Opera Network has you covered!

But, how do the other networks and shows stack up?
The cast and crew of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" woke up to the exciting news that their show received 18 nominations for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards. While the nominees wait to find out which of their nominations result in a win from each of their respective categories, the show itself has released an interesting breakdown on the history of each category as it relates to their individual nominees.
Like it did last year, CBS swept "The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" nominations with 61 nominations in total, leading all networks. This was an increase from the 49 nominations it received last year. "The Young and the Restless" led the way for the network with 26 nominations overall. It was followed by "The Bold and the Beautiful" with 18. Like last year, "The Talk" had 5 nominations. "CBS Sunday Morning" and "Let's Make a Deal" each received 3 nominations, while "The Price is Right" had 2 and "CBS This Morning" had 1.When CBS opted to honor the life of Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, "Y&R) with a special tribute airing in place of an original episode of the daytime soap, the decision resulted in an Emmy nomination for the emotional road down memory lane.
