As it gears up to broadcast its first major awards telecast with the "42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" on Sunday, April 26, Pop has released the Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Competing this year for the coveted trophy are Linsey Godfrey as Caroline Spencer on "The Bold and the Beautiful," Amelia Heinle as Victoria Newman and Elizabeth Hendrickson as Chloe Mitchell, respectively, on "The Young and the Restless," and Finola Hughes as Anna Devane and Lisa LoCicero as Olivia Falconeri on "General Hospital."
Fans of "The Young and the Restless'" Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) and Sean Carrigan (Stitch Rayburn) will have the opportunity of taking part in a Meet & Greet and/or Q&A session with the daytime stars as the duo will be appearing at the Rising Star Casino Resort in Rising Sun, Indiana on Saturday, April 18. General admission tickets are just $10 for both the Meet & Greet and Q&A session.
As previously reported, former soapers Alison Sweeney (ex-Sami Brady) and Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery) have teamed up for the Hallmark Movies & Mysteries original movie, "Murder, She Baked: A Chocolate Chip Cookie Mystery," which premieres Saturday, May 2 at 9:00 PM, ET/8:00 PM, CT on the network. Before the movie premieres, Soap Opera Network has your first look photos at the duo on screen!
With a cryptic message written on a piece of paper gripped tight within her dead cold hands, Courtney Sloan (Kelli Goss) ended her lively run on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" on Monday, April 6 as close friends, and those that loved her, mourned their loss. Courtney's murder was just another in a growing line of deadly twists in the Abbott cabin crew storyline. As fiancé Noah Newman (Robert Adamson) tried everything in his power to resuscitate her, the young man was forced to come to grips with the reality that his happy path to wedded bliss had been derailed.
If a year ago someone bet me that a modern-day soap opera would not only put their African-American characters in a front burner storyline that was deeply entrenched in social issues, which had nothing to do with the color of one's skin, race or ethnicity, I'd owe that person plenty of money right about now.
When news first hit the web in August 2012 of Duke Lavery being very much alive on ABC's "General Hospital," it not only became a trending topic in the United States on Twitter, but also worldwide. Nearly three years later, it looks like the character will be heading back to the grave as portrayer Ian Buchanan is said to have recently learned that the writers have plans to off the character once more. It would be a huge mistake on their part as it would defeat the entire purpose of resurrecting the character in the first place.

Although I must admit that I may not always know the answers to their blind items right off the bat, I've long found myself fascinated with Soap Opera Digest's "Stuff We Know (And Shouldn't Tell You)" mini-section. Why you ask? Because it's no fun to be told something in print and not have anyone to talk about it with! What about you? Want to take a gander about who/what the blind items are all about this week?
Following behind the scenes changes in February with new head writers and the re-shuffling of producers in March, NBC's "Days of our Lives" will soon gear up production for its 50th anniversary celebration without several of its leading younger talents. Molly Burnett (Melanie Jonas), Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) and Melissa Archer (Serena Mason) are all reportedly said to be departing the daytime drama series in the weeks and months ahead, at least onscreen.
After conducting interviews with several of today's top talents and filing special assignment reports for the newsmagazine on multiple occassions over the past year, CBS Television Distributions's "Entertainment Tonight" officially announced today the hiring of "All My Children" alum Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery) as its new weekend co-anchor and a full-time correspondent. He will also serve as a fill-in anchor for the weekday telecast, hosted by Nancy O’Dell and Kevin Frazier.
