CBS’ hit soap, “The Bold and the Beautiful” has recently traveled to Dubai, Monte Carlo and Paris for on-location scenes, and it looks like the globetrotting sudser will be at it again very soon, according to executive producer Bradley P. Bell.

“We have a big location shoot planned in October,” the scribe teases to Soap Opera Network. “It’s somewhere in Europe, and I can’t say exactly where just yet, but it’s someplace spectacular!”

“The Young and the Restless’” Billy Abbot has seen quite a transformation in recent months. After portrayer Billy Miller decided to walk away from the show in January of this year, former portrayer David Tom was cast in the role. But just a few short months later, it was announced that Tom — who previously played the character from 1999 to 2002 — had been ordered to pack his bags so that daytime newcomer Burgess Jenkins could step into the role. And while it was Miller’s decision to leave the character he’d played since 2008, the same cannot be said for Tom, who was reportedly very surprised to learn he’d been replaced with Jenkins after just four months of being back in the role! So what happened to lead to such a quick casting turnaround? We asked CBS’ Senior Vice President of Daytime, Angelica McDaniel, who told Soap Opera Network that the recast was not an easy turn of events for anyone involved.

Soap Opera Network‘s coverage of the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards red carpet continues, this time with “General Hospital’s” Maura West (Ava Jerome), who opted for a silver gown for the night’s event.

Soap Opera Network: Beautiful gown! You’re like a statue! Who’s the designer?

I don’t know. My fabulous costume designer let me borrow this from “General Hospital.”

Lucky! So can you take me through your day? What did you do leading up to the red carpet?

I’ve got five children, so I wake up at like 5:45 with at least two of them in my bed with me. And then I have my coffee, got my hair blown out and then went home and had a Miller Lite.

The red carpet for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards was filled with the sexy men of soap operas, including “General Hospital’s” Tyler Christopher (Nikolas Cassadine), who wore a custom made creation for the night’s event.

Soap Opera Network: You look dashing.

Thank you. I’m not in black like I’m supposed to be, but this is what I had.

Well, you’re not supposed to be in black. You’re a star, a leading guy, you can be fashion forward!

Thank you!

Who’s the designer?

It’s not a designer, it was made for me.

Oh wow, fancy!

I guess, yeah. Sy Devore.

The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards were something extra special for Jennifer Pepperman, the executive producer of Prospect Park’s online version of “One Life to Live.” The sudser was the first ever online show to be nominated for Outstanding Drama Series during the Daytime Emmy awards, a fact that actor Tuc Watkins (David Vickers, “OLTL”) was also celebrating.

Soap Opera Network: You must be feeling so proud to have “One Life to Live” being nominated against network shows!

Pepperman: It’s an amazing thing. The best thing about the Best Show nomination, aside just being a historical nomination, is it’s really everyone’s nomination. Everyone who worked on “One Life to Live.” Streaming is the future. “One Life to Live” isn’t daytime TV, it’s anytime TV. We’re there, you can watch it any time you want to watch.

With “One Life to Live” up for Outstanding Drama Series during the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, it was no surprise to see Prospect Park founder Richard Frank and his wife, “All My Children” and “One Life to Live’s” “More” show host Leslie Miller, on the red carpet.

Soap Opera Network: Wow, cool outfit, Leslie. Is that a hood?

Leslie: Yes. I’m stepping out of my comfort zone tonight.

Who’s the designer?

Leslie: It’s Balenciaga.

You’re both here representing “AMC” and “OLTL.” It must feel spectacular to know they got all of these nominations!

Rich: It’s beyond belief, having started and fought for a couple of years to get them up and going and to have people recognize how hard a lot of people worked to make it happen. It’s great.

“Days of our Lives’” Jen Lilley (Theresa Donovan) always stuns on the red carpet, but she was especially beautiful at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Soap Opera Network: You look stunning!

Lilley: Thank you. It takes a village, you know.

With you, I doubt it! Who’s the designer of your dress?

The designer of the gown in Mac Duggal and my jewelry is by Charlie Lapson, and then my bag was my grandmother’s, so it’s vintage and sentimental.

How nice! Is that a good luck charm for your show?

Sure, I hope so!

“General Hospital’s” Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos) was a first time nominee at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and his real-life girlfriend, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt Westbourne, “GH”), made sure her beau had a very special day!

Soap Opera Network: Hello you two! And congratulations, Bryan. Kelly, you look stunning. Who’s the designer of your dress?

Kelly: Marc Jacobs.

What made you choose this one?

Kelly: Honestly, this was the best one that I found and I thought it was unique, and Marc Jacobs – you can’t really go wrong with that. And the shoes are Balenciaga.

And you, Bryan? Did it take you a long time to get ready?

Bryan: Oh no, I got a suit in a day. I just went to Top Man at the Grove and grabbed a suit and Kelly actually got me this nice tie clip today.

How sweet! So take me through your guys’ day today. What did you do leading up to this moment?

Bryan: So she woke up at 6:45, I woke up at about 9:30, and she made pancakes for me and bloody marys and walked the dog and did a lot of laundry, and I just kind of relaxed.

Kelly: But he vacuumed!

Bryan: Yes, I did vacuum! But it was a nice morning. Very relaxing, and she took care of me.
