As previously reported, The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences have partnered up to amass a collection of costumes, scripts, photographs, props, awards and other materials recognizable to daytime fans for a special Daytime Television exhibit. The museum held a special ceremony today, May 9, to not only celebrate the partnership, but to also officially launch a three-year artifact collecting initiative and to announce the first items to be lent for the exhibit!
It’s not easy being “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Liam Spencer, a man whose heart has flipped back and forth between Kim Matula’s Hope Logan and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood’s Steffy Forrester for the better part of two and a half years. And that’s what makes receiving an Emmy nomination in recognition of the tough work all the sweeter for portrayer Scott Clifton, who for the first time has been nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category as opposed to the Outstanding Younger Actor category he’s been in five times (and won once, in 2011).
As previously reported, Matthew Cowles is returning his dastardly evil character Billy Clyde Tuggle to “All My Children” beginning Thursday, May 16. In a newly released image from The OnLine Network, Billy Clyde is about to butt heads with Ray MacDonnell‘s Dr. Joe Martin, in what appears to be a motel room.
In a growing list of popular artists appearing on or performing in episodes of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live,” including Hot Chelle Rae on today’s “AMC,” The OnLine Network has announced that multi-platinum recording artist Jason Derulo will perform on the soaps Wednesday, July 3 episode. The episode finds the artist appearing as himself singing his new single “The Other Side” after receiving an invite to perform as part of a gala event hosted by Brooke English (Julia Barr).
In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, Susan Lucci talks about a possible return to “All My Children” as her iconic character, Erica Kane, and the possibility of hearing the character utter some expletives, which is now okay since the show is on the internet.
“Well, I don’t know, it would all depend on what they wrote for me and how organic it would be,” Lucci told the Times regarding her character cursing. “Erica Kane seemed to get her point across pretty well without cursing!” When asked what word Erica might say if it was part of the script, Lucci said, “I don’t know. I’ve never thought about it. Maybe I’ll have to think about it.”
In a new video released today via Yahoo! TV, The OnLine Network honors the men of Llanview, Pennsylvania (“One Life to Live”) which includes shedding new light on David Vickers (as played by Tuc Watkins), introductions to Jeffrey King (Corbin Bleu), and the evolution of Bo and Clint Buchanan (Robert S. Woods and Jerry verDorn), respectively. Of course, there’s some insight into Cutter Wentworth (Josh Kelly) as well.
“Jeanne Cooper was one of a kind. No one who has ever known her would disagree with that statement. Her life force and energy were legendary. Many a time I marveled as she outlasted the rest of us on late night shoots. She was a moving, inventive, and powerful actress. She was a loving mother and grandmother. She was part warrior, part rabble rouser, part truck driver and part Diva, all wrapped up in one Great Lady. Most of all, to me, she was my friend and I loved her. For the last 26 years, hers was the face I most wanted to see when I came to work. Hers was the energy I most wanted to bounce off of on stage. Hers was the voice that kept me in stitches . And because of all that, hers is the presence I will never in my life forget,” said Jess Walton (Jill Abbott, “The Young and the Restless”) in a statement released to Soap Opera Network on the passing of co-star Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor).
As a tribute to Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, “The Young and the Restless), who died today, MeTV will feature episodes of “Bonanza” and “The Big Valley” in which she guest starred tomorrow, Thursday, May 9 from 2:00- 4:00pm.
On today’s episode of CBS Daytime’s “The Talk,” the co-hosts paid tribute to the life of Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor, “The Young and the Restless”), who passed this morning with her daughter by her side. Sheryl Underwood, a longtime fan of “Y&R,” was working to hold back her tears while Julie Chen spoke the beautiful words in celebration of Cooper’s life.
