CBS Daytime Ramps Up the Laughter!

It’s not hard to laugh, but across the board, daytime stars agree that it’s not easy to be funny! That being said, some of the industry’s most popular talent — “The Price Is Right’s” Drew Carey, “Let’s Make a Deal’s” Wayne Brady, and “The Talk’s” Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood — certainly make it look easy to be hilarious day in and day out. Noticing the top-notch humor present in their daytime lineup, CBS decided to gather those said stars together at Hollywood’s legendary venue, The Comedy Store, to perform an evening of standup comedy benefitting a cancer charity. The result: CBS Daytime After Dark, Stand Up to Cancer — a fun event definitely worth smiling about!
This past August, “The Young and the Restless” fans saw one of those rare circumstances when behind-the-scenes drama rivals that of the intense drama seen onscreen: actress Christel Khalil (Lily Winters) filed a lawsuit against her talent agency for reportedly being so sloppy and remiss, they sent her on an audition for the very sudser she was already working on!

Hollywood’s obsession with soap operas just won’t quit, with the latest cross-over being Academy Award-winning writer-director Francis Ford Coppola making “The Young and the Restless” an offer they couldn’t refuse: A visit to the sudser’s set!
Hollywood and politics have gone together like peanut butter and jelly since the original rise of onscreen entertainment, and it looks like soap operas will be the next to join in on the fun. Colleen Bell, producer of “The Bold and the Beautiful” and wife of the show’s executive producer, Bradley P. Bell, is apparently on track to be the next U.S. ambassador to Hungary!
