On today's episode of NBC's "Days of our Lives," Chandler Massey says goodbye to his multi-Daytime Emmy Award winning role of Will Horton. As previously reported, Massey planned to depart the daytime drama series when his contract was set to expire in December 2013, but show producers opted instead to replace the actor upon his completion of his filming of scenes in August of last year, citing the exit as being storyline dictated. Daytime newcomer Guy Wilson took over the role when he began filming scenes in September. He begins airing on Wednesday, January 8.
Best known for his portrayal as Philip Banks (aka: Uncle Phil) in NBC's widely popular sitcom "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," actor James Avery has died.

According to police, he was walking home when he was hit by a vehicle and thrown into the bushes. The driver of the vehicle has yet to be identified. Pregerson died on Monday night after being taken off of life support.

This is the most joyous time of my life,” said actress Teresa Castillo to the publication, where she announced she was expecting her first child - a girl - with husband Shane Aaron. "It feels great to finally be able to share it with the world," she added.
The wait is finally over for the launch of Sonia Blangiardo's "Taint Dreams: The Series," which features Alicia Minshew (“All My Children”), Terri Ivens (“AMC”), Grant Aleksander (“Guiding Light”), Kelley Menighan Hensley (“As the World Turns“), Walt Willey (“AMC”), Natalia Livingston (“GH“), Marnie Schulenburg (“ATWT”), Michael Lowry (“AMC,” “One Life to Live“), Nathan Purdee ("OLTL"), Austin Peck (“ATWT,” “Days of our Lives“, “OLTL”), Colleen Zenk (“ATWT”), Larkin Malloy (“The Edge of Knight,” “AMC”) Dina Manzo (“Dina’s Party” and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”), Anthony Wilkinson (“My Big Gay Italian Wedding” and the new “My Big Gay Italian Funeral”), Lisa Marie Varon (“IMPACT WRESTLING”) and “Mr. PEC-Tacular” Jessie Godderz (“IMPACT WRESTLING” and “Big Brother”), Bobbie Eakes (“AMC,” “The Bold and the Beautiful“), Ilene Kristen (“OLTL,” “Ryan’s Hope”), James DePaiva ( “OLTL”) and Tonja Walker (“OLTL”), along with a host of newcomers, as viewers are treated to a behind the scenes look at the daytime soap "Painted Dreams."
One thing we'll soon find out is how much of an effect SOAPnet's demise will have on "General Hospital," if any at all. In a new promo touting the multi-platform availability of ABC's sole remaining daytime soap opera, the network wants to make sure its viewers have every opportunity of catching up with the latest happenings in Port Charles.
