Remember “One Life to Live’s” Scott Evans (ex-Oliver Fish, and the brother of “Captain America’s” Chris Evans)? Remember how he was arrested last year for possession of a controlled substance after he tried to buy cocaine from an undercover officer? Well... he’s now officially off the hook for the unfortunate mistake!
USA Network miniseries "Political Animals," which sadly did not move on to become a regularly scheduled primetime series as hoped, has instead become a cult classic and is now a multi-Primetime Emmy award nominee!
The recent death of “Glee’s” Cory Monteith, who died of a heroin overdose in a Vancouver hotel on Saturday, July 13, hit the show’s fans just as hard as the death of “The Young and the Restless’” Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) hit soap fans earlier this year — if not more so, considering the Fox star was only 31. The powers that be at “Y&R” scrambled to come up with an appropriate way to handle Cooper’s death onscreen, leading to a beautiful tribute episode in which castmembers — as themselves rather than their characters — shared their favorite memories of the legendary lady. And The Boston Herald thinks that “Glee” should follow suit.
According to Daniel Goddard, the citizens of Genoa City will mourn the loss of Katherine Chancellor in episodes scheduled to air on Tuesday, September 3 and Wednesday, September 4 of CBS' "The Young and the Restless." Goddard, who portrays Cane Ashby on the daytime drama series, noted on his Facebook page that the episodes were filmed on Tuesday. He posted, "Huge day on set today just got home have to be back in 10 hours. How was ur day?" after completing filming.

While her character, Cassie Newman, died as a result of a car accident in 2005, Camryn Grimes has made several return visits to CBS' "The Young and the Restless." The actress, now 23 years old, recently returned to the soap as a "projection of Sharon's [Sharon Case] mind," according to Grimes who discussed her character with on screen father Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman).
"Who are you, who are you, who are you? Why are you doing this to me?" says a frantic Dani to the man she thought was dead on The OnLine Network's (TOLN) "One Life to Live," which along with "All My Children" made its cable network debut on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on Monday, July 15. For millions of potential viewers out there who have yet to view either soap on the internet via Hulu, Hulu Plus or iTunes, they are now being re-introduced to both soaps from the beginning as OWN signed a deal with Prospect Park (owner of TOLN) late last month to air the first 40 episodes of the current incarnations of both "AMC" and "OLTL." OWN is billing the airings as the "OWN Summer Soap Fling."
“One Life to Live” is celebrating the 45th anniversary of it’s very first episode, which aired on July 15, 1968, and in honor of the special moment, the suder’s ‘MORE’ show has released never-before-seen footage from two of the show’s iconic stars, Robin Strasser (Dorian Lord) and Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord)!
Hot on the heels of the news that both “All My Children” stars Eden Riegel (Bianca Montgomery) and Paula Garces (Lea Marquez) are expecting babies comes the news that Ambyr Childers (ex-Colby Chandler) is pregnant, too!
The shocking legal battle between “General Hospital” and “One Life to Live” has kept soap opera fans on the edge of their seats for months, and the latest information — behind the scenes details from the sudsers’ star, Michael Easton (Silas Clay/ex-John McBain), as told to TV Guide — serves as more juice to keep the flames a’ burning!
