As we first reported back in June, CBS' "The Price is Right" is gearing up for its second male model search, but this time with a twist. Instead of searching for male model hopefuls solely in and around the Los Angeles area, as they did back in 2012 for the first go around, "Price" has widened its search across America with casting calls in LA, Boston, Philadelphia, Dallas and Spartanburg, S.C., which kicked off the nationwide search on Saturday, August 16. The prize is a week-long spot on the game show hosted by Drew Carey. "Days of our Lives" star Robert Scott Wilson was the winner of the first competition.

As they celebrated their first anniversary as hosts of "Soap Box with Lilly & Martha" on Thursday, August 21, former daytime soap stars Lilly Melgar ("General Hospital") and Martha Madison ("Days of our Lives") had soap journalist Michael Maloney, talent manager Michael Bruno and online soap reporter Michael Fairman on as guests as they discussed the week's biggest soap opera news. No story was bigger this past week than the news of Justin Hartley ("Passions," "Revenge," "Mistresses") returning to daytime television to portray a recast Adam Newman on CBS' "The Young and the Restless." According to Bruno, however, there was a chance that the role could have gone to Hartley's former "Smallville" co-star Tom Welling, "Sex and the City's" Jason Lewis or "Queer as Folk's'" Gale Harold.

Whoever predicted "Days of our Lives'" Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi) would grow up to become Samantha Brady's (Alison Sweeney) rival over a man, or just about anything, might be one rich person today if they made a bet with a millionaire. In a promo highlighting next week's episodes, Sami has had enough of Abby, but will she be the one forced to play nice?

In 2012, Soap Opera Network published our own version of the annual TV Guide Magazine "TV's Highest Paid Stars" issue. In the time since it was published we've been quite shocked to see how many of you were curious to know how much some of daytime and primetime's biggest and brightest stars of yesteryear have gone on to make with their current work in primetime dramas and comedies, reality shows, and even daytime talk shows.
