They say fast-paced soap operas are good training grounds for primetime gigs, and that must be the case, considering several former soap stars have garnered Primetime Emmy nods this year! In light of the official announcement of the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Award nominees, Soap Opera Network brings you the who, what and where of stars who've given sudsers a go.
"One Life to Live" fans were shocked earlier this year when it was announced that Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley of "Jersey Shore" fame would be joining the cast of The OnLine Network drama series in the recurring role of Nikki, but the reality star and actress is having a blast. When Soap Opera Network caught up with Farley during SELF Magazine's "SELF ROCKS the SUMMER" music party last night, the actress revealed that she actually prefers being called just Jenni vs JWoww, the nickname she became famous for via MTV's "Jersey Shore." She also reveals that we can expect to see her character in Llanview for sometime to come.
The recent death of “Glee’s” Cory Monteith, who died of a heroin overdose in a Vancouver hotel on Saturday, July 13, hit the show’s fans just as hard as the death of “The Young and the Restless’” Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) hit soap fans earlier this year — if not more so, considering the Fox star was only 31. The powers that be at “Y&R” scrambled to come up with an appropriate way to handle Cooper’s death onscreen, leading to a beautiful tribute episode in which castmembers — as themselves rather than their characters — shared their favorite memories of the legendary lady. And The Boston Herald thinks that “Glee” should follow suit.
"Who are you, who are you, who are you? Why are you doing this to me?" says a frantic Dani to the man she thought was dead on The OnLine Network's (TOLN) "One Life to Live," which along with "All My Children" made its cable network debut on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network on Monday, July 15. For millions of potential viewers out there who have yet to view either soap on the internet via Hulu, Hulu Plus or iTunes, they are now being re-introduced to both soaps from the beginning as OWN signed a deal with Prospect Park (owner of TOLN) late last month to air the first 40 episodes of the current incarnations of both "AMC" and "OLTL." OWN is billing the airings as the "OWN Summer Soap Fling."
“All My Children’s” Walt Willey (ex-Jack Montgomery) has traded in his Pine Valley cohorts for some characters with much less sex appeal: a group of puppets!
Susan Lucci has been busy filming “Devious Maids” and “Deadly Affairs,” all the while trying to swing by her old stomping grounds, “All My Children,” where she played Erica Kane from 1970 to 2011. She’s also taken the time to help promote the Smithsonian’s upcoming daytime television exhibit, and she appeared on “Katie” today. But that’s not all the Queen of Soaps has been up to! Soap Opera Network just got word that the New York native will be hosting this year’s Rock the Dock Summer Bash benefiting the Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor, NY.
As previously reported, OWN has picked up the first 40 episodes of both "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" for what they are billing as the "OWN Summer Soap Fling." Episodes begin airing today, July 15. The launch of both soaps will consist of 3 repeat episodes each day and a "brand new" episode airing in each soaps regularly scheduled timeslot (1:00 PM ET/PT for "AMC"; 3:00 PM ET/PT for "OLTL"), according to recently released TV listings and an OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network representative. Actual new episodes of both soaps will continue to release on Mondays via Hulu, Hulu Plus, iTunes and iTunes Canada.
