While Bravo's "The Real Housewives" reality franchise has always been considered an unscripted soap, tonight marks the first time a current soap star will be seen as a regular when "The Young and the Restless" and "Days of our Lives" actress Eileen Davidson joins the group of women in "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

It seems like forever ago since we reported Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, "All My Children") got a wonderful surprise while visiting NBCUniversal's syndicated daytime talker, "The Meredith Vieira Show," via a reunion of sorts with former "AMC" co-star, Walt Willey (ex-Jackson Montgomery). In your first look at the episode, airing Tuesday, December 2, Lucci tells host Meredith Vieira how her character on the ABC Daytime soap opera helped many immigrants learn to speak English. Later the two take part in a Soap Opera Showdown, which included Willey as a surprise participant alongside Lucci.

An odd question for sure, but while on his book tour promoting his newest title, "The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year," Bravo TV executive and "Watch What Happens Live" host Andy Cohen was recently posed the question, "If Susan Lucci [ex-Erica Kane, 'All My Children'] showed up at your door naked, what would you do?" For reference: He'd give her a robe!

Now that the Thanksgiving holiday has come and gone, Christmas Day will be all the rage this holiday season. If you're not interested in staying home to open your presents and spend time indoors with the family, why not go "Into The Woods" with soap alums Billy Magnussen (ex-Casey Hughes, "As The World Turns") and Mackenzie Mauzy (ex-Phoebe Forrester, "The Bold and the Beautiful")? This holiday season, Disney presents a new whimsical film starring Meryl Streep as The Witch in a modern day twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, while intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. Featured tales include Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel — all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.
While Eileen Davidson ("Days of our Lives," "The Young and the Restless") won't be appearing on the reality series until its third episode, Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" managed to snag its highest-rated season premiere in over three years, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings data, with 2 million total viewers tuning in, up 25 percent from the prior season premiere (11/4/13), on Tuesday, November 18. The renewed success of "Beverly Hills Housewives" follows the recent performance of "The Real Houseweives of Atlanta," which premiered its seventh season on Sunday, November 9 and became the network’s highest-rated season premiere in Bravo history with over 4.5 million total viewers (based on L+3 ratings data) and 2.7 million Adults 18-49 (based on L+3 ratings data), up 26 percent and 27 percent respectively from the season six premiere.
While it's unclear whether it had anything to do with the rescheduling of an episode featuring the men of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," Sony Pictures Television produced daytime talker, "The Queen Latifah Show," has been canceled, it was announced today by the studio. In a statement Sony said, "We want to thank Dana [real-life name of Queen Latifah], the producers and the entire staff of 'The Queen Latifah Show' for creating a program that we are all very proud of. Thank you also to our terrific station partners and advertisers who supported the show." The talk show premiered in the fall of 2013 with tepid ratings, which did not improve during season two.
As previously reported, the men of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will be appearing on the Wednesday, November 26 edition of syndicated daytime talk show, "The Queen Latifah Show." Look for "Y&R's" Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott), Justin Hartley (Adam Newman), Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby), Bryton James (Devon Hamilton) and Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) to have a sit down chat with host Queen Latifah as they talk about their best "Y&R" kisses and their first scenes. Look for Bergman to reminisce on his 25 years at the soap while Hartley shows off his famous dimples! Before the episode airs, Soap Opera Network has your first look with the men on the Sony Pictures Studios lot in Culver City, California, where the talk show is filmed.
On Monday, November 24, daytime icon and soap legend Genie Francis ("General Hospital," "Days of our Lives," "All My Children") will appear alongside "Home & Family's" Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare for a primetime holiday-themed edition of the popular Hallmark Channel talk show. In the special, Francis stops by with her own side dish of Brussel’s sprouts with pancetta.
