Ron Carlivati
As previously reported, the "General Hospital" writing team consisting of former head writer Ron Carlivati, and writers Anna Theresa Cascio, Andrea Archer Compton, Suzanne Flynn, Kate Hall, Elizabeth Korte, Daniel James O’Connor, Elizabeth Page, Jean Passanante, Katherine Schock, Scott Sickles and Chris Van Etten, took home the Writers Guild Award on Saturday, February 13 in the category of Daytime Drama. The soap beat out CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful," the only other series nominated in the category. At press time, Carlivati's acceptance speech was unavailable. That has since changed.
Jason Thompson, The Talk
On today's edition of CBS' "The Talk," "The Young and the Restless" star Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) appeared for the first time on the daytime talk show. After welcoming him to the CBS family, the co-hosts asked the actor about working on the soap opera and how things have gone so far him, including how easy it was to be "sleeping" in bed while his castmates cried over the possible loss of his character. The actor also shared where he hides his lines when necessary.
Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) has reached a milestone -- his 25th year anniversary on "The Young and the Restless." In honor of the special occasion, a gathering was held on the show's CBS sound stage, last Friday. Cast, crew, "Y&R" co-creator Lee Phillip Bell and the actor's daughters, Paris and Lola, were all on hand to celebrate the talented actor.

Jordi Vilasuso
After portraying Griffin Castillo on "All My Children" and Tony Santos on "Guiding Light," actor Jordi Vilasuso decided the timing was right for another turn in daytime. Lucky for him, "Days of our Lives" was looking to expand the Hernandez clan with the return of Dario (last played by Francisco San Martin). After meeting with executive producer Ken Corday, co-executive producer Albert Alaar and co-head writer Josh Griffith last summer, Vilasuso responded well to the idea of portraying a "very intelligent" character on the soap.
Ron Carlivati
Congratulations are in order for former "General Hospital" head writer Ron Carlivati. The writer, along with his team consisting of Anna Theresa Cascio, Andrea Archer Compton, Suzanne Flynn, Kate Hall, Elizabeth Korte, Daniel James O’Connor, Elizabeth Page, Jean Passanante, Katherine Schock, Scott Sickles and Chris Van Etten, took home the WGA Award in the category of Daytime Drama for their writing work on the anniversary episode of the soap opera.
General Hospital
If you are a fan of "General Hospital," and have not been living under a rock, you are probably aware of Nathan Varni, manager, current series, ABC Entertainment. But what you may not be aware of is recent allegations that the executive may have allegedly crossed the line when it comes to revealing intimate details surrounding contract negotiations between the network and its actors, particularly in regards to Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber).
