Fans have seen Trevor St. John do many things over the years as his “One Life to Live” characters Todd Manning and Victor Lord Jr., both of which are rather dark roles that helped keep the actor fairly shrouded in mystery. And considering his soap experience, we’ll bet in a million years most fans would never have guessed where the actor would end up next: Co-starring in GMC TV’s family film, “Finding Normal,” alongside former “Full House” starlet Candace Cameron Bure!
After months of anticipation, The National Academy of Television, Arts & Sciences has announced the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Award nominations!

It’s been nearly two years since Erin Chambers last appeared as “General Hospital’s” Siobhan McKenna, and it looks like the actress (who also played “Days of our Lives” Lacey Hansen) is headed back to soap, this time on “The Young and the Restless”!
A rep for the sudser confirms that the actress, who begins taping tomorrow, Wednesday, May 1, has joined the show in the recurring role of Melanie Daniels, a paralegal who will be mixing it up with the Newman family.
Time will tell whether or not the third season of TNT’s revival of the classic soap, “Dallas” will be a charm, but that’s no doubt what the network is hoping as it gears up to bring you a third installment of the popular soap opera!
According to Daily News America, series star Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing; ex-Stephen Logan, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) says that despite its shaky ratings, TNT picked up the drama for yet another season, and fans have a funeral to thank for the big decision: Show icon Larry Hagman (J.R. Ewing) died last November, and the show’s moving memorial episode attracted 3.6 million viewers, as opposed to its usual 2.6 million.
Considering that Martha Madison (Marly Nelson-Foster, “The Bay,” ex-Belle Black, “Days of Our Lives,” ex-Elizabeth Webber, “General Hospital) married her husband, AJ Gilbert, back in 2007, the couple has no doubt heard the phrase, “So, when are you having kids?” a few thousand times. And now the pair has an answer!
The longtime soap star recently took to Twitter and announced the big news that she’s pregnant via a sneaky — yet effective — message: “My wise husband once said, ‘Life isn’t a fairy tale. It’s a series of complex chapters.’ This should be fun! #ItsAGirl #HalloweenBaby.”

The behind-the-scenes drama that’s been brewing since Prospect Park filed a lawsuit against ABC on April 18 is about to get even soapier! According to a story in The Hollywood Reporter, Prospect Park producers wished to buy ad space for “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” during broadcast soaps (“General Hospital,” “Days of our Lives,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” and “The Young and the Restless”), but CBS and NBC allegedly refused to help promote the competition — and in light of the $25 million lawsuit Prospect Park launched against ABC, the alphabet network isn’t willing to run spots for the show, either!
They say sometimes life imitates art, and “One Life to Live’s” Tuc Watkins‘ (David Vickers) latest reveal sounds a whole lot like his former “Desperate Housewives” stint as Bob Hunter: He’s a gay dad! And in an interview airing on Hallmark’s “Marie,” he’ll be opening up for the very first time about his exciting new journey into parenthood.
CBS’s “The Bold and the Beautiful” has knocked out the competition and come in at an impressive first place at the Monte Carlo Television Festival’s International TV Audience Awards in the “Telenovela/Soap Opera” category for the past seven — count ‘em, SEVEN — years in a row. But will the beloved sudser be able to grab ahold of the organization’s award once more?
