“Days of our Lives’” alum Eric Winter (ex-Rex DiMera) may spend a lot of his time filming Lifetime’s “Witches of East End,” but when he and his wife, Rosalyn Sanchez (“Devious Maids”), heard about a new venture their friend, George Valencia, was starting with Judy Reyes (“Devious Maids”), they had to sign up. The project? An animated children’s show called “La Golda,” which features an 8-year-old orphan with two passions: soccer and building a better world for kids.
Things haven’t exactly been funny over in “The Young and the Restless’” Genoa City as of late, which made CBS’ recent Daytime After Dark standup comedy event all the more needed — for fans and the actors, alike! Soap Opera Network caught up with Peter Bergman at the event, and he not only spilled details on the one thing that terrifies him, but also on who he thinks is the worst father in the world (Hint: It’s probably exactly who you think it is!). Read on for the comedy — and the drama!
Soap Opera Network: Did I just overhear you say that you would never, ever want to try standup comedy?
Peter Bergman: Nothing would terrify me more! What I think is funny and what you think is funny are probably two very different things, and the idea of just throwing my stuff out there thinking, “Well, this is funny,” and waiting for your reaction is, oh my god scary!
“Days of our Lives” fans are getting a bit of an early holiday gift: Fan favorite Patrick Muldoon (Austin Reed) is starring in the ION TV film, “Holiday Road Trip,” along with George Hamilton and Shelley Long!

A national lottery is held after 100 embryos are later found to have been successfully fertilized.
Graziadei is set to play Kyle, described as a recovering alcoholic and single father of one of the last children born before new breaks of the new development.

Nikki’s husband, Victor (Eric Braeden), announces a plan to have his company, Newman-Chancellor Enterprises, provide jobs for qualified U.S. veterans, letting people know that he values veterans as driven, goal-oriented employees and advising other employers to seek out these proven leaders.

Last week Friday Lifetime unexpectedly made the decision to bring back their once canceled, but now twice renewed hit series, “Drop Dead Diva,” for a sixth season set to premiere in 2014. Today, the network sadly opted not to do the same for “The Client List,” which stars Jennifer Love Hewitt as Riley Parks – a single mother of two who happens to make a whole lot of money as a prostitute.
The series – loosely based on the 2010 hit Lifetime original movie of the same name and inspired by a true story – will not return for a third season, confirms a Lifetime representative to Soap Opera Network.
