Soap fans may remember Victor Alfieri for his stints on CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” and NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” but these days the former soap star is battling attacks with a hairbrush, reports TMZ.

According to the website, the actor has filed a restraining order against 47-year-old Christopher Veech, who lives with Alfieri’s neighbor, following claims that he was attacked with a hairbrush last month and has previously been harassed by Veech for more than a year. Alfieri states that the right side of his face still hurts following the hairbrush attack and his right eye twitches as a result.

Ever since the news broke last September that Guy Wilson would be replacing Chandler Massey as “Days of our Lives” beloved character, Will Horton, many fans have been chomping at the bit to see the actor’s take on the important role. Well, the wait is finally over, as Wilson made his debut as Sami’s (Alison Sweeney) son today!

As we previously reported, Massey’s exit off the canvas followed by Wilson’s entrance into Salem was rather quick: Massey was last seen in the role less than a week ago. The show’s actors seemed to take the switch in stride, connecting with the nuWill rather seamlessly. But what about the fans? Were you all able to embrace the new face of Sonny’s (Freddie Smith) lover? Tell us what you thought below!

While character and storyline details are not yet known, a rep for ABC’s “General Hospital” confirms that Shirley Jones, former star of “The Partridge Family” and “Shirley,” will appear on the daytime soap opera in an episode airing next month.

Word of Jones’s appearance on the show first came to light yesterday when “GH’s” William deVry (Julian Jerome) tweeted actor William Shatner (“Star Trek”) and said, “we have Shirley Jones coming to ‘General Hospital’ tomorrow. We r still hoping ur agent will let u join us for a few eps.’” Shatner responded to deVry’s tweet by saying, “You know the last time Shirley and I worked together she played my mother. Send her my love.” The show in which Shatner was referring was TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland.” An ecstatic deVry replied, “Oh that is amazing!! I will say [to Jones] u say hello.”
