(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — When Broadway star and Tony Award winning actress LaChanze joins the cast of "One Life to Live" later this month in the recurring role of Yvette, she won't be alone. Joined by Barret Helms (who will play Yvette's son Baz), the daytime newcomer will also share a surprising connection to several Llanview residents, the identities of which may surprise you. Since news of LaChanze joining "One Life" first broke nearly a month ago, fans have speculated that her character would be related to James' (Nic Robuck) old flame Deanna Forbes (Nafessa Williams), based in part due to the show's strange obsession with a desire to connect every African-American character on the canvas to one another. And while, that may eventually turn out to be true, in a shocking twist, it will soon be revealed that it is actually another Llanview newcomer that Yvette has a history with. The actress...
After fifteen years of working in various positions on the "One Life to Live" writing staff, including serving as the show's head scribe for the last three years, ABC has announced that Ron Carlivati will be joining "General Hospital" as a script writer. The move will fulfill the remainder of the three-year contract Carlivati signed with the network last September. A similar two-year deal was hammered out at the time with "One Life" Executive Producer Frank Valentini.
With the news that "Days of our Lives" has let Gary Tomlin go as co-executive producer and Soap Opera Network unable to confirm who is replacing him at this time, rumors began swirling that actor Mark Hapka would be returning to the daytime drama series just days after reportedly stating that someone in particular (possibly Tomlin) was in the way of his employment with the show.
After a week of unconfirmed (by the show) firings of numerous actors, NBC's "Days of our Lives" has now fired its co-executive producer, Gary Tomlin. The news was first reported by TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco on Twitter. News of Tomlin's firing comes on the heals of last months firing of head writer Dena Higley and the recent firings of actors Crystal Chappell (Carly Manning), Louise Sorel (Vivian Alamain), Bren Foster (Quinn Hudson), Nadia Bjorlin (Chloe Lane), and Tamara Braun (Taylor Walker).

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Another name has been added to the growing list of former "All My Children" stars who have returned or are confirmed to be returning to bid the ABC soap adieu before taping concludes on September 2. So far, that list includes Josh Duhamel, Cady McClain, Thorsten Kaye and Shannon Kane. This evening, in a press release, ABC reveals that "CSI: Miami" star Eva LaRue will join that returning group. The 44-year-old stunner is due to bring Dr. Maria Santos Grey back to Pine Valley this July. LaRue starred on the ABC soap from March 1993 to August 1997 and from June 2002 to June 2005. Her electric chemistry with co-star John Callahan, who played her husband Edmund Grey, translated into a real-life romance. The couple made their union official with a 1996 wedding. In 2001, the relationship produced a daughter, Kaya. LaRue and Callahan divorced in 2004....
On Monday, May 23, three days after news broke that Ingo Rademacher (Jasper 'Jax' Jacks) had been fired by ABC's "General Hospital," Soap Opera Network tweeted that we had exclusively learned that Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo (Brenda Barrett Corinthos) would be the next actor leaving the daytime drama series. On Thursday, May 26, just before the long Memorial Day Weekend, the actress confirmed our report when she revealed that her days with the soap were numbered via her Twitter page. Interestingly, the actress has been tweeting up a storm since revealing the news while keeping mum for nearly 3 months on her twitter account (it had previously been crickets since February of this year). Marcil Giovinazzo's confirmation follows months of rumors since she revealed in an interview with Access Hollywood Live back in March that she was on her way out.
