On Friday, March 28, “CBS Sunday Morning” correspondent Mo Rocca was on hand to film scenes alongside “The Young and the Restless” actresses Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) and Amelia Heinle (Victor Newman) for an upcoming appearance on daytime TV’s top rated drama series. News of Rocca’s appearance came to light when the correspondent tweeted a picture of himself with the ladies while noting he’ll be portraying the role of Milton the accountant in scenes scheduled to air on Wednesday, April 30, per a tweet by Scott.
Rocca’s appearance on “Y&R” isn’t his first time appearing during the daytime hours on the network. Rocca most recently appeared in an October 2013 episode of “The Talk,” during a segment in which he shared America’s favorite family recipes with the co-hosts.
Tuesday, April 1 marks the 51st anniversary of ABC’s “General Hospital.” To honor its special day, the series is promising viewers plenty of love, life and nostalgia, which includes the re-appearance of two of its most popular and celebrated actresses per a report by Daytime Confidential.
According to the website, Sarah Brown and Tamara Braun, both of whom portrayed Carly Corinthos on the daytime soap prior to her current portrayer, Laura Wright, joining in 2005, will make cameo appearances alongside Wright in the special episode of the series. This marks Brown’s third non-consecutive stint (brief or otherwise) on “GH” since originating the role of Carly in 1996. After departing the soap in 2001, Brown returned in January 2008 to portray the newly created role of mob princess Claudia Zacchara. She departed the series in 2009. Braun portrayed Carly almost immediately following Brown’s departure in 2001 until her contract expired in 2005.
“The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke Logan) is on fire! Not only did the athletic actress ace the Abu Dhabi International Triathalon that took place on March 15 in the United Arab Emirates, she followed up the tough challenge by also acing the difficult Ironman triathalon that took place this past Saturday in Oceanside, California!
The busy actress managed to finish the 70.3-mile triathalon (the half version of the most grueling endurance event in the world, consisting of a 1.20-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride, and 13.1-mile run) in seven hours, one minute and eight seconds. The time landed her in the position of 1,826 out of 2,414 athletes.

Sonny Corinthos may have his hands full on “General Hospital” lately, but his portrayer, Maurice Benard, managed to find the time to film a movie last year! It’s called “The Ghost and The Whale” and it features Benard as a bipolar man who is shrouded in mystery surrounding the death of his wife at sea. When an acclaimed journalist comes to town, they must together try to uncover the truth of what happened, while trying to survive the wrath of the wife’s diabolical brother.
Yesterday the first trailer for the film was released and there’s enough drama and action in this sneak peek to make Sonny himself proud!

According to TV Line, the hunk will be joining the show as plastic surgeon Scott, a potential love interest for Jes Macallen’s Joss who may have quite the kinky side! “He’s the nicest plastic surgeon in Los Angeles with a teeny tiny fetish… just enough to keep someone like Joss interested,” teases executive producer Rina Mimoun. “He gets Joss to do the one thing she never thought she’d ever do.”
Look for season two of the ABC series to debut on Monday, June 2 at 10PM ET/PT.
Any fans of “The Young and the Restless” hoping for a miraculous return by Victoria Rowell (Drucilla Winters) would be wise not to hold their breath: The actress just publicly tore the 41-year-old sudser to shreds.
In a Twitter rant that coincided with the CBS series’ anniversary yesterday, Rowell broached the topic of racism in the soap opera industry, paying special attention to the show she called home for the better part of 1990 to 2007. “AfricanAmerican multi-million$ (P&G) audience substantially keeps Young & Restless at #1,” she wrote, followed by: “Young & Restless on for 40 years, loyally watched by their absolute competitive-edge audience (blacks) & not ONE black Exec PRODUCER?”
