One week ago today, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) presented “The 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA, which aired exclusively on the internet for the first time.

One week later, amidst drama surrounding the mess that was the social media/red carpet portion of the telecast, the daytime community and fans alike are still demanding an apology from the organization for hiring a group of women who didn’t know a single person they were interviewing as they told “General Hospital’s Ryan Paevey (Nathan West), “We’re going to get you away from us before we rape you” and told “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Lawrence Saint-Vincent (Carter Walton) he was a “beautiful chocolate man” before casually asking him, “What’s it like to be a black man on a soap these days?” But an insider tells Soap Opera Network, “NATAS didn’t hire the red carpet hosts, MWW and HERE TV producers did!”

On Tuesday, June 24, Genoa City said hello again to a familiar name with a new face. On that day, daytime newcomer Burgess Jenkins took over the role of Billy Abbott on CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” from David Tom, who himself succeeded three-time Daytime Emmy Award winning actor Billy Miller in the popular role, but how did Jenkins land himself on daytime’s most watched drama series? “My management called me and they were talking to me about this role, and when they sent me the breakdown on the character, I just fell in love. I absolutely fell in love with Billy,” said Jenkins when Soap Opera Network spoke with the actor in the gifting suite at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA as part of Daytime Emmy weekend. “There’s not a whole lot of characters you see that are so multi-layered and interesting that way. I had a chance to meet with the producers to discuss the character and the show, and it just seemed like a good fit,” added Jenkins, who noted that the conversation he had with producers on the character helped give him something to dig into before the cameras began to roll.

Eileen Davidson — who’s now on contract as Ashley Abbott on “The Young and the Restless,” but was nominated as Outstanding Lead Actress for her work as “Days of our Lives’” Kristen DiMera — took a cue from the statue she ended up winning at the end of the night. Just like the golden award, she sparkled on the red carpet during the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

Soap Opera Network: Who’s the designer of this stunning gown?

Davidson: Falguni and Shane Peacock, out of India.

What made you choose this dress out of all of the dresses in the world?

I put on a lot of different dresses, and when I put this one on, I thought, “This is it.” Hands down.

Soap Opera Network‘s 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards red carpet coverage continues, this time with “The Young and the Restless’” Elizabeth Hendrickson (ex-Chloe Mitchell), who was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress. Her co-star, Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman), may have taken home the award at the end of the night, but Hendrickson was shining like a winner on the red carpet!

Soap Opera Network: You look so beautiful! What a fun bright pop of yellow.

Hendrickson: Thank you.

Who is the designer?

Shareen. I’ve worn her a few times, but this year it’s custom made.

I know you were traveling a lot after leaving the show, and you had said you were going to have to do everything Emmy related last minute. Is that how it happened?

It all happened very last minute. She made this in about five days, but I had one dress picked out, she made it, I got there, tried on something else, and then [she] made a whole new dress. I kept on changing! I knew I wanted to go bright, I knew I wanted to go bold. I’m usually a little bit more trendy in my every day life, and I like to wear a lot of black. But this year, I just wanted to be bright and happy.

Everyone loves a comeback, and it’s no different in the case of the rumor that the Queen of Soaps, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children”), managed to get Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall Hart) fired from the sudser back in the 90s. Though the rumor is quite ancient in the daytime industry, it’s getting a second life on sites like Us Weekly and Perez Hilton thanks to a comment Kathy Griffin made as host of the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards live webcast on Sunday, June 22.

The Bravo comedian announced that she ran into Gellar at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, June 21, and asked if she had ever starred on a soap opera. “She said, ‘What?! Don’t you know I was on All My Children?! I played Erica Kane’s daughter,’” Griffin recalled. “I know, right? So get this s—. I go, ‘Really? What was it like?’”

As promised, our coverage of the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards red carpet continues, this time with “The Young and the Restless’”Camryn Grimes, formerly known as Cassie Newman and now as troublemaker Mariah. Enjoy!

Soap Opera Network: So who’s the designer of this gorgeous dress? It’s such a pretty color!

Grimes: Thank you! It’s Rhea Costa. I loved it. It made me feel like a mermaid. And I love this mesh and lace, and I loved that it was nude, it looked like it was hugging perfectly.

Is it hard to walk with that train?

Yes, people have been stepping on my train, and I don’t like it!

I guess it’s true what they say: Beauty is pain.

Yes, it is. But you know what, I can just inch my way down the carpet, and if a couple of people step on it, no problem!
