Actress Paula Garces (“Devious Maids;” ex-Lea Marquez, “All My Children”) and her husband, Antonio Hernandez, have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving: On Wednesday, November 20, the couple welcomed their first child together into the world!
It’s not uncommon for soap opera stars to appear in music videos (we’ve even done features about it in the past), but “General Hospital’s” Sean Kanan (A.J. Quartermaine; ex-Deacon Sharpe, “The Bold and the Beautiful”/“The Young and the Restless”) and his wife, Michele Kanan, have turned the tables: The duo actually made their own music video specifically about the genre!
This week on “Days of our Lives,” the heat between Daniel (Shawn Christian) and Nicole (Arianne Zucker) builds to an exciting kiss between the pair! But will the scintillating smooch be a game changer? Soap Opera Network caught up with both actors to find out!
Held Monday, November 18 at the Beverly Hilton in LA and at the XL Nightclub, Cabaret & Lounge in NYC, "The Casting Society of America's 29th Annual Artios Awards" honored the best of the best in casting and "The Young and the Restless'" Judy Blye Wilson took home her twelfth Artios Award in the process.
As previously reported, Billy Miller is departing CBS' "The Young and the Restless" and the role of Billy Abbott, which garnered him two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. After the actor and Sony Pictures Television failed to reach an agreement on a new contract, the studio and CBS opted to replace Miller with David Tom, who actually originated the role of an adult Billy Abbott in 1999.
If you never imagined you'd get the opportunity of seeing the likes of Sarah Joy Brown, Alicia Minshew, Melissa Archer, Ron Raines, Scott Bryce, Crystal Chappell, Tina Sloan, Ricky Paull Goldin, John-Paul Lavoisier and Louise Sorel in the same series at the same time, your imagination needs some fine tuning. With actresses Jessica Morris and Rebecca Mozo rounding out its cast, "Beacon Hill: The Series" is ready to march itself to the top of the internet charts when it debuts in March 2014. To get viewers to salivate over what's to come, Bella Productions in association with Open Book Productions has released the first teaser trailer that highlights Brown and Minshew as two out lesbians trying to survive the political world in Boston, Massachusetts.
With Billy Miller unable to reach a new deal with Sony Pictures Television, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will soon say goodbye to the actor and hello again to David Tom, who originated the role of an adult Billy Abbott in 1999. News of Miller's exit and Tom's return was first reported by Michael Logan of TV Guide Magazine on Twitter, but has since been confirmed by Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President, CBS Daytime, also on Twitter.
Hot on the heels of "All My Children" being given its second cancellation notice in as many years, Debbi Morgan (ex-Angela Hubbard) has quickly found herself back on her feet. The actress has signed on to star in the new Starz drama, "Power," which is being co-executive produced by rapper 50 Cent. Tweeted Morgan, "Happy 2 announce I'll B joining the cast of the new series "Power" 4 the Starz network in the recurring role of 'Estelle.'" Morgan's character is the mother of Naturi Naughto's Tasha St. Patrick.
In celebration of its "Home for the Holidays" campaign, ABC announced today plans to incorporate United States Veterans in upcoming episodes of its daytime and primetime programming, including "Modern Family," "Last Man Standing" and "General Hospital." Comedy "The Neighbors" will offer a veteran the opportunity to shadow one of their directors as they put an episode together. Meanwhile, "The View" and "The Chew" will support the vets with various themed episodes throughout the holiday season.
With word that Tristan Rogers would be departing ABC's "General Hospital" and returning to CBS' "The Young and the Restless," it was only a matter of time before fans heard from the actor himself on the abrupt change in status from one soap to the next. Said Rogers on Twitter of his "GH" experience, "I’d like to thank Frank [Valentini, executive producer] and Ron [Carlivati, head writer] for great storyline that kept Scorpio true to himself." On his "Y&R" return Rogers said, "I’m stoked on Colin’s return to #YR in 2014 and delighted to once again be a part of the CBS Daytime family."
Friday, November 15 was a busy day for CBS' "The Young and the Restless" and its cast members. On that day it was announced that Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman) had signed a new deal with the daytime drama series and Sean Carrigan (Stitch Rayburn) had been upped to contract status. The news wasn't so great for fans of Billy Miller (Billy Abbott), who is currently in a stalemate with producers of the soap opera. Miller, whose contract is set to expire next month, has yet to sign a new deal and it's being reported that recent casting calls for caucasian males are smoke screens for the show to instead cast a replacement for the actor.
