Since joining the cast of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" in early 2014, Cady McClain [ex-Dixie Martin, "All My Children"; ex-Rosanna Cabot, "As The World Turns"] has seen her character, Kelly Andrews, finally deal with several family matters that have helped shape her into who she is today. "Her child died, her marriage broke up, her mom was a drunk and was very unstable. She thought her father was good, and it turns out her father was abusive. So Kelly had a really rough life experience. I hope that the fans kind of remember that. She's really hanging on by her fingernails and trying to make this life, and Jack is a real key... falling in love," McClain says in an exclusive interview with Soap Opera Network, following the Tuesday, February 17 episode of "Y&R," which found Jack Abbott's (Peter Bergman) actions contradict his words when he once again became intimate with Kelly as they did the deed in the storage room of The Underground.
On the Thursday, March 12 episode of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," fans of the daytime drama series will be introduced to "The Price is Right" male model search winner James O'Halloran, who will guest star as a waiter in scenes with actors Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Fenmore) and Christian Le Blanc (Michael Baldwin). In an interview with Soap Opera Network, O'Halloran reveals that his appearance on "Y&R" marks the first time he has ever been on the set of an American soap opera, his thoughts on winning the "The Price is Right" male model gig and what's next for the 6'1 Australian native.
Get ready to scream in fright (or perhaps delight), because Soap Opera Network managed to get our hands on some deliciously devilish Halloween pictures from a few of your favorite “Days of Our Lives” and “The Young and the Restless” stars! From a pretty princess to a sinister slicer, these actors really know how to dress the part! But do you dare read on to find out witch was witch? If so, be warned: It’s hair-raising, spirit-satisfying fun!
When "Days of our Lives'" Will Horton left Salem last month to join his mom and younger siblings on a Los Angeles adventure, fans of Will and Sonny Kiriakis (Freddie Smith) were left wondering what that would mean for daytime's only married gay couple and their future together, considering it was stated that Will would be gone for upwards of six months. Turns out six months is just several weeks in the world of soap operas as Will's portrayer, Guy Wilson, tells Soap Opera Network that he'll be back on air sooner than you think. "It was written as six months, but it's not going to be six months," he shares, while noting, "something will happen that will force Will to return early." Whether that something has to do with the trouble heading Sonny's way, or the mystery Will finds himself looking to solve right alongside his father, Lucas (Bryan Dattilo), the actor is definitely looking forward to seeing what's ahead on "DAYS" play out on air.
It’s raining men at “The Price Is Right,” which has been in the thick of a national male model search of manly proportions for the past couple of weeks. And seeing as how the game show not only helped launch the career of “Days of our Lives’” Robert Scott Wilson (Ben Rogers; ex-Pete Cortlandt, “All My Children”) but also decided to include “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman) and Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) in this year’s search (which Soap Opera Network was the first to reveal), we decided to have executive producer Mike Richards come on down and give us the full scoop!
“The Young and the Restless” viewers weren’t exactly thrilled when popular actor Billy Miller announced that he would be exiting the role of Billy Abbott, but the rough waters were mostly calmed when former portrayer David Tom (brother of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom [Katie Logan]) swooped in to take back the role. It’s been a fairly smooth transition for most viewers, but jumping into the middle of such an intense storyline — the death of Delia and having been outed for cheating on Victoria (Amelia Heinle) —was a bit of an adjustment for the actor!
If you’ve been enjoying the dynamic between “Days of our Lives” Theresa (Jen Lilley), Shane (Charles Shaughnessy) and Kimberly (Patsy Pease), you’re not the only one! Shaughnessy and Pease shared their thoughts on the parent/daughter relationship with Soap Opera Network last week, and Lilley is now weighing in on the dramatic storyline!
“The Young and the Restless” brought the soap opera community to tears this past May with an emotional and very well planned memorial for the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), who passed away due to an illness that same month. And now the sudser is pulling out all of the stops yet again to honor the character Cooper played for 40 years. The emotional storyline has already begun playing out with several of Genoa City’s residents receiving letters from the grand dame, and Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) says this is just the start of a powerful story arc that will change the small Wisconsin town in more ways than one.
The moment "Days of our Lives" fans have been waiting for is finally happening: Molly Burnett is returning as Melanie Jonas today, November 21! But what exactly brings Melanie back to the canvas? And how long does Burnett plan on sticking around in Salem? Soap Opera Network spoke with the actress to find out!
It may have been released quite some time ago, but fan reaction to Roxanna’s “Unforgotten” music video starring “Days of our Lives” James Scott (EJ DiMera) is still going strong. Soap Opera Network recently re-posted the steamy music video, but if that wasn’t enough for you (and we imagine it wasn’t), then you’ll be happy to hear that Roxanna shared what it was like getting so up close and personal with Scott during the making of the sexy video! Check out her memories below, as told to her close friend and writer, Roxanne Smith, exclusively for SON.
