There’s been some recent buzz that Hunter Tylo may soon be returning as “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Dr. Taylor Hayes, but are the rumors true?
Unfortunately for fans of the actress (who’s played Taylor on again/off again since 1990) , her team took to Facebook to quiet the reprisal buzz once and for all: “Rumors are out there, that Hunter Tylo is in talks with ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ to reprise her role as Dr. Taylor Hayes, beginning next month,” the post says. “There is no truth to those rumors, no talks are in place between Hunter and ‘The Bold and the Beautiful.’ We thank you all for the love and support you are showing Hunter.”
For those of you missing the adventures of Taylor, you can check out the latest “B&B” e-book “Collision Course,” which officially went on sale today! The book details how Taylor gets to know the real Bill (Don Diamont) after she discovers he is trying unsuccessfully to cover up his severe Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, caused by a near-fatal plane crash.

It’s been a whopping seven years since larger-than-life personality Rosie O’Donnell has been a part of “The View,” but executive producers Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie announced today that the actress/comedian is returning to the popular talk show!
Friday, February 7 marks O’Donnell’s appearance alongside current co-hosts Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. As fans may recall, the current “The Fosters” actress previously held the position as moderator for “The View” from 2005-2007 but left under less-than-friendly circumstances (both a contract dispute with ABC and her inability to get along with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck played out onscreen).
It looks like 2014 is getting off to a rocky start for former “CSI: Miami” star Eva LaRue (ex-Maria Santos, “All My Children”), whose current husband, Joseph Cappuccio, has filed for divorce.
TMZ obtained divorce documents for the couple, which Cappuccio filed citing irreconcilable differences. The seafood businessman has also asked the court to reject any requests LaRue might make for spousal support.
As soap fans may recall, this marks LaRue’s third divorce; she was previously married to “Seinfeld” actor John O’Hurley and former “AMC” star John Callahan (ex-Edmund Grey), with whom she shares 12-year-old daughter, Kayla.

“One Life to Live’s” Robin Strasser (ex-Dorian Lord) is known for being very open on Twitter regarding the cancelation, revival, and then shelving of “OLTL.” While most of the other “One Life” actors have decided to remain more tight-lipped, Strasser has often taken to the social media site to make her feelings known.
Earlier today on Twitter, she revealed that she recently asked Prospect Park Productions to pay out the balance of her one-year contract. According to Strasser, she only worked and was paid for eleven weeks before production was halted, despite signing on for a year. “#PPP sed w/ due respect: NO,” Strasser tweeted. She explained that legally Prospect Park Productions had in their contracts that if the show ceases production, then the company isn’t required to pay out the rest of the agreed-upon salaries. “Ergo: shelved = no dough for many,” Strasser continued.
On Friday, January 24, NBC’s “Days of our Lives” put rumors to rest when it officially announced that former “One Life to Live” actress Kassie DePaiva (ex-Blair Cramer) would be joining its cast in the contract role of Eve Donovan, a role which was originated by actress Charlotte Ross, who congratulated DePaiva on signing onto “DAYS” on Twitter.
Shortly after word broke that Kassie DePaiva would be taking on the role of Eve Donovan on NBC’s “Days of our Lives” later this summer, originator Charlotte Ross took to Twitter to congratulate the former “One Life to Live” actress on snagging the part and shared some of her own fondest memories of the character. Ross also announced she’ll be appearing in a future episode(s) of ABC’s “Nashville.”

Last night marked the 66th annual Directors Guild of America Awards Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles, but none of today’s daytime drama directors received a nomination. Why? Because the “Daytime Serials” category was integrated into the “Dramatic Series” category following a June 22, 2013 DGA National Board meeting that voted on rule changes, which forces daytime and primetime dramas to compete against internet distributed dramas such as “House of Cards,” which essentially leaves daytime itself shut out from ever receiving a nomination as the dynamics of daytime is no where near the likes of 2013 nominees “Breaking Bad” (AMC), “Game of Thrones” (HBO), “Homeland” (Showtime), or even the aforementioned “House of Cards” (Netflix). “Bad” won the award for those wondering.
