Since Melissa Ordway joined “The Young and the Restless” as Abby Newman just over a year ago, she hasn’t had much exciting story to sink her teeth into — until now! The drama between Abby, Tyler (Redaric Williams) and Mariah (Camryn Grimes) is about to explode, and Soap Opera Network caught up with Ordway to get the juicy details!
This is literally the best time of Linsey Godfrey’s life; not only is “The Bold and the Beautiful” star engaged to “The Young and the Restless’” Robert Adamson (Noah Newman) and is expecting her first child this June, she’s also celebrating her first ever Emmy nomination for her work as “B&B’s” Caroline Spencer! It’s a bit overwhelming, but in the best of ways, of course. “It’s definitely been a whirlwind of a year, that’s for sure,” the actress says with a smile. “I’ve been very fortunate.” On the day this year’s Emmy nominations were announced, Godfrey recalls being a bit stunned when she found out she was officially in the race for Outstanding Younger Actress. “It was one of those things where I was really, really excited, but then I kind of sat there and debated whether or not to wake up Bobby ,” she recalls. “I sat there...
While “The Bold and the Beautiful” is bringing awareness to pet adoption with the recent Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope (Kim Matula) cat rescue storyline, “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman) is championing for animals during Pet Cancer Awareness month in a different way: By being involved in and spreading information about the Riedel and Cody Fund, which provides funding and support for people whose pets have been diagnosed with cancer and can’t afford treatment.“I went to an event called the 12 Million Dog March that they had in a park in Los Angeles, and I brought my dog, Sophia, and Chrishell and I are hoping to move into a house some day soon, and we can’t wait to adopt a bunch of dogs and just have a farm in the backyard.”In the meantime, the actress will continue to dedicate her time to the...

Just before learning he was once again nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Liam Spencer on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," actor Scott Clifton took time out of his busy day to speak with Soap Opera Network about a topic that he is very passionate about: Animals. Although Clifton was battling pneumonia at the time of our discussion, his passion for those animals desperately in need of the love and companionship that one can bring helped him push forward as he provided details on how the storyline featuring the Los Angeles Animal Shelter came about, the behind the scenes reality surrounding Liam's gift to girlfriend Hope Logan (Kim Matula), and how he went from a dog person to a cat person.
On Thursday, May 1, nominations for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were announced, and "Days of our Lives" star Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) received the happy news that he'd received his first ever nomination, although in the most unusual of ways. "I had forgotten that they were announcing it. I had an early call time and I'm in the shower at 6:00 AM," the actor recalls of the time news began rolling in. "I get out and my phone's just going nuts. There I am soaking wet standing there in the bathroom. I look at my Twitter, and sure enough, I found out through some fan," Martsolf states with a chuckle while nonchalantly apologizing for the visual. For reference, "The tweet read, 'Congratulations on your Emmy nomination, Eric Martsolf' and that's how I found out."
Shortly after Elizabeth Hendrickson announced that she was leaving the role of “The Young and the Restless’” Chloe Mitchell, Soap Opera Network had the chance of speaking with the actress about departing the role she’s played for the last six years. In Part One of our Center Stage interview with the New York native, who was just nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in this year’s Emmy race, she discussed why she chose to walk away from daytime as well as her hopes for her future career. But that’s not all the actress divulged during our in-depth chat! In Part Two of our Center Stage interview with Hendrickson, she opens up about Chloe’s final days, her wish for the character and fans, as well as her hesitation about saying goodbye to “Y&R!”
They say a happy couple never lasts long on soaps, and yet “The Young and the Restless’” Cane (Daniel Goddard) and Lily (Christel Khalil) have endured for over half a decade. The pair hasn’t exactly been happy the entire seven years, but the two seem to share a love and strength within their relationship that is rarely seen in the soap opera genre. However, the saying “all good things must come to an end” is something that always lurks in the background, and some viewers can’t help but question just how much staying power Cane and Lily have left — especially with Cane’s dastardly father, Colin (Tristan Rogers), trying to worm his way back into the picture! But just what’s going to happen from here? Soap Opera Network caught up with Goddard himself to find out!Love in the afternoon is a former slogan for daytime dramas, and there’s a...
While we wait to find out who is nominated for the "41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" when nominations are announced on Thursday, May 1, David Michaels, Senior Executive Director and Co-Executive Producer of the awards show, which falls under the purview of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS), which is not to be confused with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (now known as simply the Television Academy), recently took time to speak with Soap Opera Network about the upcoming broadcast that still finds itself without a TV home after cable network HLN announced earlier this year that they had passed on airing daytime television's most highly anticipated event. The network previously aired the ceremony in 2012 and 2013 to record ratings.
“The Young and the Restless” fans have gotten to know quite a bit about Sean Carrigan’s Dr. Ben “Stitch” Rayburn since the actor joined the show nearly a year ago, but when Soap Opera Network recently caught up with the Virginia native, he revealed that there’s much more — and we mean much more — to Stitch than meets the eye. Read on for details about the shocking secret the doc has been hiding from Victoria (Amelia Heinle) and what it’s been like for Carrigan to work with Genoa City’s patriarch, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman)!
Last week, Soap Opera Network featured an exciting interview with “The Young and the Restless’” Cady McClain (Kelly Andrews), but the actress had MUCH more to say regarding her new CBS soap role — as well as a slew of other topics, including the tragic second ending of “All My Children,” where she played Dixie Cooney for over 25 years. Read on to get additional scoop on a variety of subjects from “Y&R’s” newest star!
