There’s a ‘Halo’ of light surrounding the mother of pop sensation, Beyoncé, these days: It seems Tina Knowles is all lit up for former “All My Children” and “Dynasty” actor Richard Lawson!
Knowles showed up at New York City’s Angel Ball Tuesday evening with the actor, who played “Dynasty’s” Nick Kimball from 1986 to 1987 and “AMC’s” Lucas Barnes from 1992 to 1993, on her arm. And according to E! News, Beyoncé’s mom will be partying with the ‘Single Ladies’ no more: She and Lawson are officially dating!
Congratulations, love birds!
It’s incontrovertible that “Days of our Lives” James Scott (EJ DiMera) is drop dead gorgeous. He has an impressive 6-foot-something stature, model good looks, a smooth British accent, perfectly polished style and… scrapes all over his hands. (Record scratch.) Yes, when the English native recently sat down with Soap Opera Network for an exclusive interview, he had numerous red scratches marring his otherwise perfect digits. And suddenly, he was all the sexier. Especially when he quipped of the wounds: “Oh, I did a love scene with Alison [Sweeney, Sami] yesterday.”
Not much can top seeing “All My Children’s” Cady McClain (Dixie Cooney) receive an onscreen proposal by a guy in a chicken suit, but her latest venture just might come close. The actress, who has spent more than 30 years in front of the camera, has flipped to the other side of the camera to direct a short film called “Flip Fantasia.” And lucky for you, she’s made the entire film available for online viewing — for free!
The annual Tails N Tots event is set to take place on Saturday, October 12, and it looks like this year’s event, benefitting The Kids Wish Network, will be featuring not one but TWO former Jake Martins from “All My Children!”
“So excited that the 2 gorgeous ‘Jakes’ from ‘AMC’… will be joining me at this event!” tweeted attendee Alicia Minshew (ex-Kendall Hart Slater, “AMC”) of both Ricky Paul Goldin (ex-Gus Aitoro, “Guiding Light;” ex-Gary Dawson, “The Young and the Restless”) and Michael Lowry (ex-Ross Rayburn, “One Life to Live”) signing on to the event.
“All My Children’s” Jordan Lane Price (Celia Fitzgerald) may be an actress, but it seems singing is another of the girl’s passions. How do we know? Well, as it turns out, she auditioned for “The X-Factor!”
The actress appeared on the Wednesday, September 18 episode of the reality series with her group, Drama Drama. Unfortunately, the fivesome’s performance, which you can watch below, failed to impress judges Simon Cowell, Kelly Rowland, Demi Lovato and Paulina Rubio. But that’s good news for “AMC” fans, as crooning won’t be taking the actress out of Pine Valley — at least not yet!
Things are about to start looking a bit different in Genoa City, as “The Young and the Restless” has named its new headwriters: Current ‘Y&R’ scribe Shelly Altman and daytime writer Jean Passanante will share the position, along with ‘Y&R’ scribe Tracey Thomson, who’s been promoted to co-headwriter within the new, all female headwriting team.
If you’ve loved seeing “All My Children’s” Rebecca Budig (ex-Greenlee Smythe) serve as the co-host of “The Better Show,” a syndicated talk show that just begun its seventh season, you’re in for a treat: Her debut was just the start of a very exciting week ahead that will feature not only one but two popular daytime stars!
In a video published on their YouTube page and official website, The OnLine Network presents Suzy F*cking Homemaker (“All My Children’s” Cady McClain) having a chat with “One Life to Live’s” Tuc Watkins, using footage from the Sleepy Hollow photo shoot from earlier this year.
Such comedy gold include Homemaker noting that “Tuc” rhymes with “Duck,” putting Waktins on the spot after he previously stated, “I will never wear a stars and stripes speed,” only for her to present him with a photo of him wearing said type of speedo from the ABC incarnation’s archives. Also included are highlights of Watkins consistently using flabbergasted when asked questions about real-life situations.
