As soon as we hit “publish” on our exclusive interview with “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) detailing his alter ego’s baby drama, you guys sang “Gimme More” louder than Britney Spears. Well, we heard you, Muhney heard you, and the result is another interview in which the actor delves deeper into Adam’s complicated world. Only this time, he’s revealing upcoming details that will literally — and we truly mean literally — change the canvas of “Y&R” forever!
Anyone who’s been watching “The Young and the Restless” knows that the mother of all babydaddy storylines is about to play out between Chelsea McAvoy (Melissa Claire Egan) and Adam Newman (Michael Muhney), meaning that the cacophony of sweet “oohs” and “aahs” recently heard over baby Connor will quickly be turning into a frenzy of screaming arguments! Soap Opera Network sat down with Muhney to get his take on how his alter ego is going to react to the news that Chelsea’s baby is really his own, and the actor teases that the drama to come will make you cry like a — you guessed it — baby!
“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 to play 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.
Patrick Swayze died of pancreatic cancer in 2009. The fatal disease took the life of Apple CEO Steve Jobs in 2011. Even Bonnie Franklin, who guest-starred on “The Young and the Restless” as Sister Celeste just last year lost her battle with the deadly cancer in March. And Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), having lost his uncle several years ago to the very same affliction, is speaking up once again to let the world know that it’s time we put a stop to the horrific and painful cancer that claims the lives of nearly 40,000 people each year.
On Sunday, October 27, the star will be hosting The 16th Annual L.A. Cancer Challenge, a charity race that benefits the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

Well wait no more, because the-soon-to-be (or not-to-be) onscreen Mrs. Chandler has revealed what’s in store for the savvy journalist’s future with the two men and more!
Longtime “All My Children” fans couldn’t believe it when news broke that Michael Nader would be bringing his popular alter ego, Dimitri Marick, back to the show. And even though it’s been over a month since his June 12 onscreen debut, it’s still a little bit hard to believe that he’s really back in Pine Valley — even for the actor himself! And it turns out, it was a return that nearly didn’t happen.
“I got a call from my daughter, who said, ‘Dad, I just got an email from someone named Ginger in regards to ‘All My Children.’ She wants to talk to you,” says the actor about how he and executive producer Ginger Smith got in contact. “And lo and behold, [Ginger] said, ‘I’d been trying to find you for three weeks, and I just told the writers that mostly likely I’m going to have to pull off of writing for you, because we couldn’t find you. You’ve been well hidden, Mr. Michael.’”
“One Life to Live” fans were shocked earlier this year when it was announced that Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley of “Jersey Shore” fame would be joining the cast of The OnLine Network drama series in the recurring role of Nikki, but the reality star and actress is having a blast. When Soap Opera Network caught up with Farley during SELF Magazine‘s “SELF ROCKS the SUMMER” music party last night, the actress revealed that she actually prefers being called just Jenni vs JWoww, the nickname she became famous for via MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” She also reveals that we can expect to see her character in Llanview when the soap resumes filming in September.
It’s a day that almost never came, but thanks to the team at Prospect Park, “One Life to Live” is celebrating its 45th anniversary today, July 15. In honor of the sudser’s big milestone, iconic actresses Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord) and Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer) spoke with reporters about their favorite memories, proudest moments and surprisingly awkward first days.
“All My Children’s” Christina Bennett Lind (ex-Bianca Montgomery) never realized how much she could fall in love with a character until she stepped into the shoes of Erica Kane’s benevolent daughter back in 2010. And though a lot has changed since those days — including the end of the sudser’s run on ABC, it’s move to an online network and the eventual return of Binks’ previous portrayer, Eden Riegel — Lind still has a special place in her heart for the beloved character. How do we know? Well, we caught up with the actress to get her take on the new “AMC,” what it’s been like for her to see Riegel return to the role and to dish about the new project she can’t wait for fans to hear about!
On Thursday, June 20, Prospect Park announced that they had come to a resolution to the dispute between it and the I.A.T.S.E. (International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employees) New York Production Locals 52, 161, 600, 700, 764, 798 and USA829, the union representing stage workers for the soaps, which alleged that Prospect Park had violated the labor agreement with the union. Prior to the resolution, Soap Opera Network spoke with “One Life to Live” star Robert Gorrie (Matthew Buchanan) about the early hiatus as a result of the dispute, his upcoming storyline with Amber Skye Noyes‘ Michelle, being a leading man on a soap opera and how his show is helping him grow.
