Days of our Lives

It’s been one month since Guy Wilson debuted as “Days of our Lives’” Will Horton, and he has quickly ingratiated himself into the town of Salem. In fact, shortly after debuting as Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) son, he’s already found himself on the way to a fictional altar with Sonny (Freddie Smith)! As the onscreen pair prepares to eventually walk down the aisle and become a married couple, Soap Opera Network caught up with Wilson to get his take on why he landed the role, how he was able to bond with Smith so quickly and what kind of obstacles the popular and influential onscreen pairing will face as they prepare for marriage!

It looks like fans of “Days of our Lives’” Kristen DiMera will have quite a re-entrance into Salem to look forward to: Portrayer Eileen Davidson (ex-Ashley Abbott, “The Young and the Restless”) has teased that her alter ego’s comeback to the NBC sudser isn’t going to a smooth one!
Anyone who’s been watching “The Young and the Restless” as of late knows that Nicholas Newman’s life is about to be blown to smithereens. Not only has his father been tricking the love of his life into thinking she’s been seeing and speaking with her dead daughter, he’s on the verge of finding out that the very same woman he loves has been lying to him about the true paternity of his daughter! The drama is all pretty typical for Nick’s portrayer, Joshua Morrow — who’s been dealing with twisted Genoa City plots for nearly 20 years — but the drama he faces in his latest stint in the political drama thriller ‘Tentacle 8?’ Not so much! Soap Opera Network spoke with the actor about momentarily stepping away from his ‘Y&R’ craziness to film the exciting project, which is available on DVD in stores and on Amazon today. And we also got him to spill on all of the Victor (Eric Braeden), Sharon (Sharon Case) and Adam (formerly Michael Muhney) drama, too!
If you’re ready for more secrets, scandals, passion and romance than ever before, you’re in luck: The Emmy-nominated online soap opera “The Bay” is returning with an all-new Chapter 12 that promises to deliver sudser standards with a serious bang! What’s more, the cast has already begun new installments of the ever-popular pre-launch “Confessions of Bay City,” in which Bay City’s biggest and baddest take the hot seat for jaw-dropping confessions!

Daytime fans might be used to presently seeing actor Wally Kurth as Justin Kiriakis on NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” but it wasn’t so long ago that the actor played “General Hospital’s” Ned Ashton. And guess what? It looks like he’ll be headed back to Port Charles in the near future!
Eileen Davidson may have just returned to the set of “Days of our Lives” to reprise her role as Kristen DiMera (to air later this summer), but that’s not the only sudser she’ll be appearing on: She’s heading back to “The Young and the Restless” as Ashley Abbott later this month — and Beth Maitland (Traci Abbott) will be joining her!

The official Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards were announced earlier today, and fans of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” may have noticed something peculiar: Both online versions of the shows were much less represented than their network counterparts.
Playboy may have found popularity by publishing risqué photos of women, but as the old excuse goes, some people actually read it “for the articles.” And those who picked up the March 2014 issue of the popular mag for reading purposes only were in for a lovely daytime related surprise: The publication stripped down popular primetime series made predominately for a male audience and declares they’re exactly like “The Bold and the Beautiful,” The Young and the Restless,” “General Hospital,” and “Days of our Lives” — with a manly twist.
