"Days of our Lives" star Freddie Smith (Sonny Kiriakis) and girlfriend Alyssa Tabit are speaking out for the first time since the two were involved in a near fatal car accident in Kingsville Township, Ohio nearly three weeks ago.

In an exclusive interview with Australia's TV Week Soap Extra, "The Young and the Restless'" Michael Muhney (ex-Adam Newman) has point blank denied the allegations that he groped the breasts of one of his former co-stars, which was reportedly the reason show producers opted to drop him from his contract last December. "I didn't want to be desperately screaming: 'I didn't do it!’” Muhney told the publication in its newest issue as to why it took him so long to defend himself after staying silent for so long. “The rumour was untrue," he continued.

For weeks gossip sites and celebrity magazines have been left wondering if former "Guiding Light" star Hayden Panettiere was indeed pregnant after pictures of the "Nashville" actress surfaced with what would appear to be a baby bump.

The debate over whether violent television and movies cause violent behavior in real life has been raging for years.

Soaps aren't necessarily known for being extremely violent. Recently, however, foreign soap operas from two different countries have come under fire for promoting dangerous behavior.

All it took was a simple tweet that said, "Can't wait for the games today..btw I'm having another kid..have a great day. God bless," and soap fans everywhere learned that "The Young and the Restless'" Steve Burton (Dylan McAvoy) and wife Sheree Gustin were expecting their third child.
