With over 20 years of daytime experience, you’d think that Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman, “The Young and the Restless”) would have already been nominated at least once for a Daytime Emmy Award, but shockingly enough, this year’s nomination marks the first for the actress! And she says it’s all due to the incredibly emotional Delia’s death storyline she and her “Y&R” counterparts were given this year. “I don’t always put myself in the running, because I don’t always have [strong material to submit]... but this year, I just thought, you know, I’m just going to put myself in there, so it feels really good, because my instincts, I guess, were right!” she says, adding that the impact of the storyline was felt by everybody right from the beginning. “The first day of shooting the Delia stuff, after she died, this weird sort of camaraderie came over all of us. I don’t think we anticipated the magnitude of how heavy it would be, because sometimes you get a storyline that’s really heavy and nobody is into it and nobody can play it, and it’s like, ‘Ugh, this isn’t really working.’ But that day, it meant something to everybody. It almost felt like [the death] really happened. It was surreal, because it was the first time I’ve ever experienced this in all of my years of daytime, where the storyline actually felt pretty real.”

It’s been almost six months since “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney (ex-Adam Newman) was let go from the show reportedly due to sexual harassment accusations, and after months of keeping mum following the controversy, Muhney has finally broken his silence with a simple, positive Twitter message.

First “General Hospital” snagged “The Young and the Restless” alum Michelle Stafford (ex-Phyllis Summers), and now comes word that the ABC soap has snagged “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Ronn Moss (ex-Ridge Forrester) as well!

Set your DVRs not only for Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” but also for “The Steve Harvey Show,” as Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children”) will be dropping by the talk show next week to celebrate Mother’s Day!

Shortly after Elizabeth Hendrickson announced that she was leaving the role of “The Young and the Restless’” Chloe Mitchell, Soap Opera Network had the chance of speaking with the actress about departing the role she’s played for the last six years. In Part One of our Center Stage interview with the New York native, who was just nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in this year’s Emmy race, she discussed why she chose to walk away from daytime as well as her hopes for her future career. But that’s not all the actress divulged during our in-depth chat! In Part Two of our Center Stage interview with Hendrickson, she opens up about Chloe’s final days, her wish for the character and fans, as well as her hesitation about saying goodbye to “Y&R!”

John Paschal/JPI StudiosThey say a happy couple never lasts long on soaps, and yet “The Young and the Restless’” Cane (Daniel Goddard) and Lily (Christel Khalil) have endured for over half a decade....

Today, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences officially announced the nominees of the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Awards! The list of pre-noms in the categories for Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actor and Actress, Supporting Actor and Actress, Younger Actor and Actress and more was whittled down to just a few final contenders who will compete for the coveted National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Emmy award statuettes during the event that will be taking place on Sunday, June 22. Read on for the official list of nominees in the major categories!

“The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye) already has a lot on his plate these days, but it’s possible the writers are looking to throw him one more loop: An unknown love child! Or at least, that’s what Dr. Chris Brown, host of the Australian series “Bondi Vet,” guessed could be the case when the sudser reportedly offered him a role on the series!

“The Young and the Restless’” Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) has already shown that he’s quite a talented actor, and the Emmy winner is now showing the world that he has another talent up his sleeve: Documentary film making.

It wasn’t that long ago when the soap opera genre was considered to be dying, but it has since seen a major turnaround — to the point where NBC (home of sudser “Days of our Lives”) and USA are developing new soaps!
