The anticipation for the online launch of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” has been building for months, and with mere weeks left before the shows’ Monday, April 29 debut on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes, it’s tough for fans to keep a lid on all of that excitement. And it’s about to get even harder to contain the joyous feelings, because several actors from both shows have given some pretty nice hints as to what you can expect once their alter egos reappear in Pine Valley and Llanview!
It’s only been a few weeks since Melissa Ordway took over for Emme Rylan as “The Young and the Restless’” Abby, and the actress already feels right at home. That’s partly because the cast has been together a lot celebrating the show’s 40th Anniversary, but it’s also because, as the actress puts it, the entire cast is just like a real family.
“The experience has been amazing,” the former “Hollywood Heights” star reveals. “The first scene I had was with Eric [Braeden, Victor Newman] and Joshua [Morrow, Nicholas Newman] — basically my whole family. I was so intimated, because I had watched the show forever, so I was like, ‘Oh my gosh! I have a scene with all of these people that I’ve grown up watching?!” But they were all so lovely and kind, and they made me feel right at home immediately.”
If you think you’re excited about the return of “One Life to Live,” which debuts on iTunes, Hulu and Hulu Plus on Monday, April 29, wait until you hear how excited these goats are! Uhhhh… Nope, that’s not a typo, folks. In The OnLine Network’s latest teaser for the sudser, goats are front and center.
Tongues started wagging when “Days of our Lives” star Greg Vaughan (Eric Brady) tweeted that Jen Lilley (ex-Maxie Jones, “General Hospital”) was the newest castmember to join the iconic show, and while the actor’s tweet was quickly pulled, the rumor spread like wildfire anyway. And it turns out, the news is true!
ABC’s news program, “Good Morning America” was the latest show to feature a special segment on “General Hospital” in celebration of the sudser’s 50th Anniversary. And the resulting fun is a can’t-miss for die-hard fans!
ABC’s “The View” is hosting a very special “Guy Friday” episode, and guess who’s popping in to co-host? The beloved Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing, “Dallas;” ex-Stephen Logan, “The Bold and the Beautiful”)!
On the show, which regularly features co-hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd, Duffy will help the team tackle subjects like the latest in sneaker fashions and how to talk to your kids about sex. But the highlight will no doubt be when Harrison Ford and Chadwich Boseman join the group to promote their latest film, “42.”
Production on the new ABC Family drama series, “The Fosters” starts today, meaning Sherri Saum (ex-Keri Reynolds, “One Life to Live;” ex-Vanessa Hart, “Sunset Beach”) is back to work! But just what will the actress be doing under executive producer Jennifer Lopez’ command?
Turns out, the actress is playing opposite Teri Polo, and both women play gay mothers raising a mix of multi-ethnic foster and biological children. Since the show takes a hard look at gay marriage and parenting within a groundbreaking premise that addresses the foster care system, mixed racial families and teen issues, it’s sure to be a topic of discussion as the Supreme Court rules on the legalities of the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage next month.
“One Life to Live’s” Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio Vega) has done a slew of gigs since leaving Llanview in 2009, including guest stints on “CSI: Miami,” “Law and Order: Criminal Intent,” and “The Mentalist.” And now he’s adding one more show to his resume: CBS’s procedural drama series, “Blue Bloods”!
When you’re a soap fan, it’s tough not to imagine what it would feel like to be in a hot, sweaty love scene with a daytime stud or a fierce, all-out catfight with an iconic diva. Heck, most fans would even kill just for the chance to walk on stage as a background extra! No matter how small or large of a part you’ve may have dreamed of playing on one of your favorite daytime dramas, “General Hospital’s” casting director, Mark Teschner, tells you how to make it happen!
“Fifty Shades of Grey’s” Christian and Ana get all the glory for pushing the boundaries when it comes to how sexuality is portrayed via mainstream entertainment, but soap operas are the true pioneers of bringing sensuality and seduction to popular culture. You just have to look at “General Hospital” to prove it!
