(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Currently appearing on The CW's "90210," rumors persist that actor Freddie Smith will be joining the cast of NBC's "Days of our Lives" in a contract role. Some of the rumors are going as far as to say that he will portray the love interest of Will Horton (Chandler Massey), who is also rumored to be the character the soap will reveal as being gay. When contacted by Soap Opera Network, a "DAYS" representative confirmed that it is indeed a rumor, but could not confirm published reports. A representative for Smith was unable to provide any details on the matter, but promised to keep us abreast on the situation.

Additional reporting by Angela Rosa (SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- While it was widely expected to happen, ABC is now confirming that Thorsten Kaye has indeed signed on to return to "All My Children" in the role of Zach Slater, the presumed dead husband of Kendall Hart Slater, as the daytime soap begins counting down to its final episode.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- As of this writing, ratings for the week of May 2-6, 2011 have not been released to us by Nielsen Media Research. With that in mind, based on the latest information we have (week of April 25-29, 2011), "One Life to Live" has surpassed "General Hospital" as ABC's most watched daytime drama series for the second consecutive week. For fans of the canceled drama series, unfortunately that isn't entirely good news.No one expects ABC to miraculously change its mind after making the devastating announcement that it has opted to cancel "One Life" and "All My Children" in favor of programming that costs 30-40% less than a scripted daily serial, but a consistent "One Life to Live" only spells doom for daytime's longest running current soap opera, "General Hospital." How is that possible you ask? Simple mathematics.Should "One Life to Live" continue to outperform "General Hospital" in total...
