It’s been a long time coming, but the date for the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards has officially been set: A spokesperson for the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences confirms that the ceremony will be taking place on Sunday, June 22 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
Last week, Soap Opera Network featured an exciting interview with “The Young and the Restless’” Cady McClain (Kelly Andrews), but the actress had MUCH more to say regarding her new CBS soap role — as well as a slew of other topics, including the tragic second ending of “All My Children,” where she played Dixie Cooney for over 25 years. Read on to get additional scoop on a variety of subjects from “Y&R’s” newest star!
The phrase “How does she do it?!” is said a lot in regards to “Devious Maids” and former “All My Children” star Susan Lucci (Genevieve Delatour, “DM;” ex-Erica Kane, “AMC”), who manages to make being in one’s 60s look youthful and glamorous. And the actress is sharing her secrets!
When life gives you lemons, you’re supposed to make lemonade. But when former “All My Children” actors Debbie Morgan (ex-Angie Hubbard) and Ricky Paull Goldin (ex-Jake Martin, “AMC;” ex-Jesse Torres, “The Bold and the Beautiful;” ex-Gus Aitoro, “Guiding Light;” Andrew Miller, “Beacon Hill”) were given the very lemon-esque news that their sudser had been cancelled, they decided to make much more than lemonade: They paired up to executive produce an MTV special!
As we previously reported, “The Young and the Restless’” Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) is guest-starring on tonight’s episode of CBS’ hit sitcom, “The Crazy Ones.” The actress will be playing boozy librarian named Flora who enlists the help of Simon (Robin Williams) and his team to help her save her library.
As we previously reported, former “All My Children” star Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) is headed to “Days of our Lives,” where he’ll be taking over Justin Gaston’s role as Ben. Hot on the heels of the news, the actor himself took to Instagram to comment on his new journey — as well as his final episode of “The Price Is Right” (where he debuted as the show’s first male model) and the anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing.
During “The Young and the Restless’” recent 41st anniversary celebration, Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) told Soap Opera Network that he’s one of the luckiest men in daytime. And if you look at his embarrassment of riches — an impressive 33 year career in soaps, numerous Emmy nominations and wins, exciting storylines, and talented co-stars — it’s easy to see what he means. But lately, he’s been feeling exceptionally blessed. Read on to find out why!
“The Young and the Restless” viewers were recenlty hit with a one-two punch regarding the role of Kelly Andrews: Current portrayer Cynthia Watros was officially announced as stepping out of the role in order to take part in MTV’s new series “Finding Carter,” while Emmy winner Cady McClain (Dixie, “All My Children;” Roseanna, “As the World Turns”) was announced to be stepping into the role of the grieving mother! Soap Opera Network took part in McClain’s very first “Y&R” press conference, and the actress dished on how she landed the exciting role, how she feels about replacing Watros, working with her former Pine Valley co-stars in Genoa City and her experience saying goodbye to “AMC” and Dixie once and for all. Read on for the scoop!
