“All My Children’s” Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) has been given the moniker “Queen of Soaps,” but with some recent moves by the production team behind her new series, “Devious Maids,” she just may be called “Queen of Telenovelas,” too!
In order to appeal to a Latino audience, the pilot for the Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella Williams, “The Young and the Restless”) co-executive produced series — which was created by Cherry and is based on Televisa’s hit telenovela “Ellas Son La Alegría Del Hoga” — will be available via digital platforms prior to its Sunday, June 23 Lifetime premiere in both English and Spanish (meaning yes, we’ll get to see what it look like for Lucci to speak the language of love)! Plus, following the network premiere, each following episode of the show will be available in both languages on myLifetime.com, Lifetime’s Video Watch app and A + E Network’s distribution partners’ Video On Demand services, sites and apps the day after its 10PM time slot.
Heartthrob Trevor Donovan (ex-Jeremy Horton, “Days of our Lives”) is a man of many talents: He skis, snowboards, sings, plays the guitar and has a bachelor’s degree in graphic arts. But of his many abilities, acting takes the cake — and it’s something he’s been on a roll doing since he left “DAYS” six years ago. The California native has starred in projects like “90210,” “Savages,” and “The Client List,” and now he’ll add ABC Family’s “Melissa & Joey” to his resume.
Leven Rambin has done a slew of television shows since departing from the role of Lily Montgomery on “All My Children,” including stints on “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scoundrels,” “CSI: Miami” and “One Tree Hill.” But the actress is quickly transitioning her career into film, first with a small but pivotal role in last summer’s “The Hunger Games,” and now, according to Deadline Hollywood, in two new films: “Seven Minutes” and “Walter.”
As if things weren’t crazy enough on “Baby Daddy,” an ABC Family sitcom about a guy who becomes a surprise dad when his ex-girlfriend leaves a baby on his doorstep, Matt Dallas (“Kyle XY”) is dropping in again to up the ante!
As surprising as it was to hear that “The Young and the Restless’” Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) absolutely loves everything about weddings (which you can read more about here), it was equally surprising when his onscreen partner, Christel Khalil (Lily Winters) admitted that, in opposition to Goddard’s romantic view on the soap staple events, she really can’t stand them! And that’s just one of the things the candid actress revealed when Soap Opera Network recently caught up with her for a revealing chat.
Ever wonder how a soap star can walk into the studio smiling, laughing and high on life one moment yet film a seriously emotional and gut-wrenching scene the next? Soap Opera Network caught up with the “The Young and the Restless” star Angell Conwell (Leslie Michaelson), who spilled her secrets for tackling those super juicy scenes that make us grip the edge of our sofas or bawl so much, we’re practically drowning.
For ages, a large chunk of “All My Children” fans wanted Bobbie Eakes’ Krystal Carey and Walt Willey’s Jackson Montgomery to pair up romantically, and while that’s probably not going to happen (at least any time soon), the actors are giving us the next best thing: They’ll be co-hosting a beauty pageant together!
Since the news broke that “General Hospital’s” Jack Wagner (Frisco Jones) was set to appear in an episode of Nick at Nite’s original series, “See Dad Run,” fans have been chomping at the bit for either more details or a chance to see the star in action on the family sitcom. Well, the time has come for both!
Oprah Winfrey Network’s dramatic series, “The Haves and the Have Nots,” which stars “One Life to Live’s” Tika Sumpter (ex-Layla Wiliamson), premiered on May 28, and ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!
As we previously reported, “General Hospital” alum Rena Sofer (ex-Lois Cerullo) is “The Bold and the Beautiful” bound and set to play Quinn Fuller, a jewelry designer and the mother of Darin Brooks’ Wyatt Fuller. But Bradley P. Bell, the show’s executive producer and headwriter, reveals that there’s more to the story!
“Rena’s powerful screen presence and vast range as an actress is what intrigued me most,” the exec says of why he chose the “Heroes” star for the upcoming dramatic storyline in which she’ll take part. “I look forward to challenging Rena with this role.”
