Melody Thomas Scott’s name has been making the rounds for a variety of things lately, but there’s one story in particular that the portrayer of the “The Young and the Restless’” Nikki Newman wants to set straight: The April 7 edition Globe article that claims she called Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children”) to trash talk the sudser’s executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps!
Rumors have been circling that Phelps has been trying to woo Lucci (who currently stars on Lifetime’s “Devious Maids”) to Genoa City, and somehow, Scott got dragged into the gossip. Consequently, the actress posted a message on her Facebook page, taking the tabloid to task for what she claims are outright lies. “Is it possible for the Globe to print an entire article with not ONE shred of truth to it? Well, they’ve done it,” she wrote. “In their April 7th edition, there is an entire page devoted to absolute lies. It refers to a phone call that I had with Susan Lucci, whom I don’t even know. Sure, over the years we have run into each other at events, ‘Hello, how are you,’ and that’s it. She does not have my phone number, nor I hers. Hey, Globe… There was no phone call!
“Oh, brother!” is an apt description for last night’s episode of “The Tonight Show,” in which former “One Life to Live” star Scott Evans (ex-Oliver Fish) and his older bro, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” star Chris Evans, shared some of their most hilarious childhood memories. The two played “The Sibling-wed Game” — a brother-oriented version of “The Newlywed” game — where each tried their best to guess the funniest, most over-the-top moments from their childhood. And boy, oh boy, do the siblings have some insanely funny moments from their past! Click on the jump to see them discuss some of their outrageous pranks and stories with host Jimmy Fallon. But be warned: Your abs will hurt from all the laughing!
“The Young and the Restless” fans know that Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Fenmore) is pretty spectacular, and it seems that Ride of Fame — a continuing series of mobile monuments dedicated to public figures highlighting New York City with their lifetime and/or special celebrated endeavors — knows it, too!
There must be something in the water, because former soap stars just can’t seem to stay out of trouble these days! First there was word that Crystal Hunt (ex-Stacy Morasco, “One Life to Live;” ex-Lizzie Spaulding, “Guiding Light”) was charged with felony assault for allegedly smashing a glass in a woman’s face, then came news that Aiden Turner (ex-Aidan Devane, “All My Children”) was charged with domestic violence after allegedly throwing a remote control at his girlfriend, and now comes word that Colin Egglesfield (ex-Joshua Madden, “AMC”) has been arrested for disorderly conduct!
“General Hospital’s” A.J. Quartermaine has officially bought the farm, and we’ll soon be seeing his portrayer, Sean Kanan, back on “The Bold and the Beautiful.” The actor reprises his role as the love-to-hate-him Deacon Sharpe on Friday, June 13 — and the sudser’s headwriter, Bradley P. Bell, says it’s going to be one hellraising return!
“Deacon is one of our greatest characters — a guy who is all about money, power and status, and this time will be no different,” the scribe reveals in a recent interview with TV Guide. “Deacon is also the father of our central character, Hope Logan [Kim Matula], which makes him especially valuable right now. We’re going to find out that he’s been going from town to town trying to get something going for himself. He eventually finds his way back to Los Angeles, ostensibly because he misses his daughter. But, as we all know, he’d sell her to the highest bidder if it served his purposes.”
Now that “General Hospital’s” Sean Kanan (ex-A.J. Quartermaine) is headed back to “The Bold and the Beautiful” to reprise his role as sleazy con-man Deacon Sharpe, “The Young and the Restless” fans are wondering if the character will be swinging by Genoa City to visit his former lover, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott). And while that may be an eventuality, “B&B’s” headwriter, Bradley P. Bell, admits that instead of loaning out Deacon to “Y&R,” he’d rather steal Nikki for his own sudser!
“The Young and the Restless’” Steve Burton (Dylan McAvoy; ex-Jason Morgan, “General Hospital”) and Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) are quite the dynamic duo, having teamed up numerous times for comedy shows across the nation. And CBS has apparently taken notice of the pair’s chemistry, as they’ve given them jobs as social media reporters for the Academy of Country Music Awards!
As Aisha Tyler said yesterday on “The Talk,” John Mayer has a history of being a little bit of a stomp-around, and according to a recent Perez Hilton story about his breakup with singer Katy Perry, he’s living up to the reputation!
According to the gossip site, the reason Perry broke it off with Mayer was because of his cheating ways: It seems he’s been busy sexting “General Hospital’s” Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall), whom he reportedly met years ago!
Former “General Hospital” star Sebastian Roche (ex-Jerry Jacks) will soon be gracing the screen of ABC again — but instead of popping up in Port Charles, he’ll be appearing on the alphabet network’s hit primetime drama, “Scandal!”
A rep for the show confirms that the actor will be appearing in a handful of episodes beginning this Thursday, April 3. The spokesperson remained tight-lipped about addition details, but Roche tweeted a photo of himself on set of the popular series looking as handsome as ever in a Paul Smith suit.
“Scandal” airs on Thursdays on ABC at 10PM ET.
