With soap stars Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, "The Young and the Restless"; Kristen DiMera, "Days of our Lives") and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed, "DAYS"; ex-Taylor McBride, "Melrose Place") currently filming the fifth season of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," it was only a matter of time before a network greenlit a new reality series/docu-series comprised solely of the divas of daytime and primetime soap operas.
Hot on the heels of the news that Hallmark’s “Signed, Sealed and Delivered” will be moving to the network’s Movies and Mysteries channel comes word that former “The Bold and the Beautiful” actor Brandon Beemer (ex-Owen Knight; ex-Shawn Brady, “Days of our Lives”) will be appearing in a Hallmark Movies and Mysteries film!
With his hit primetime series getting canceled by A&E in late August, despite bringing in some of the largest audiences for the network overall, that hasn't stopped former "Longmire" and "As The World Turns" actor Bailey Chase (ex-Chris Hughes) from moving on with his career. Chase has landed a multi-episode arc on NBC's "Chicago P.D.," reports Deadline Hollywood.
As previously reported, “General Hospital's" Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) will be featured in the Sunday, October 5 telecast of "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" which tracks past guests from "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to see what they've been up to since last appearing on the talk show. In the case of Benard, it was in 2004 when the soap star and his wife, Paula, opened up to Oprah Winfrey about the private hell they've lived for years with the revelation that the soap star was living with bipolar disorder, which, at its worst, made him violent and suicidal. Nearly 10 years since the episode aired, "Where Are They Now?" followed the actor backstage on the set of "GH," while viewers are introduced to his loving family, which includes daughters Cailey, Heather and Cassidy, and his very own "Mini-Me," son Joshua.
As previously reported, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" is currently on location filming scenes in Amsterdam for upcoming episodes of the daytime drama series. In a soap opera twist, cast members from the soap met up with the stars of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," which reportedly now includes former "B&B" actress Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, "The Young and the Restless"; Kristen DiMera, "Days of our Lives") and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed). Incidentally, because Bravo has yet to confirm either actresses participation in the series, it looks like the meeting of the former soapers (along with "Housewife" Lisa Vanderpump) and the cast of "B&B" has resulted in the "secret" being revealed!
Former soap star Eden Riegel (ex-Heather Stevens, “The Young and the Restless;” ex-Bianca Montgomery, “All My Children”) may have bowed out from the daytime world for the time being, but she’s still hard at work in front of the camera, this time on CBS’ primetime hit, “Criminal Minds.” And Soap Opera Network is bringing you the first sneak peek at the actress’ stint on the show, which also stars “Y&R’s” Shemar Moore (ex-Malcolm Winters)!
