In remembrance of the Boston Marathon bombings that took place one year ago, a portion of the east coast broadcast of ABC’s “General Hospital” will be preempted on Tuesday, April 15, a representative for the network informs Soap Opera Network. ABC News will cut into the broadcast from approximately 2:35 PM to 2:55 PM, EST.

According to the network, there will be no changes made to the episode  (#13,036) to accommodate the preemption. Therefore, viewers will still be able to tune in to see Sonny’s conscience continuing to haunt him, while Carlos fears he could be accused of shooting AJ. Jordan begins her new job, while Ava and Julian confront each other about their deeds, and Ned (Wally Kurth) returns to Port Charles.

Viewers on the east coast looking to watch the episode in its entirety can do so by utlizing the power of WATCH ABC, Hulu Plus or their cable/satellite providers ABC OnDemand service.

The east coast preemption will not affect the west coast airing.

Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that veteran soap stars Ronn Moss, Sean Kanan, Judi Evans and Patrika Darbo have joined the cast of LANY Entertainment’s “The Bay: The Series,” which premieres Chapter 12 on Thursday, May 1 with episodes running a bit longer in length than they had in prior chapters (episodes will now run between 17-20 minutes, typical for a weekly 1/2 hour series excluding commercials).

Moss, who departed CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” in September 2012 after portraying the widely popular role of Ridge Forrester for more than 25 years, joins “The Bay” as former Bay City District Attorney, John Blackwell. Evans (Adrienne Johnson Kiriakis, “DAYS”) will portray Katherine Blackwell, John’s wife. While at first it would appear that John and Katherine are in town to reconnect with their son, Damian Blackwell (Erik Fellows), the power couple are in actuality seeking vengeance against the Garrett family, who they share a hidden past.

“General Hospital’s” A.J. Quartermaine has officially bought the farm, and we’ll soon be seeing his portrayer, Sean Kanan, back on “The Bold and the Beautiful.” The actor reprises his role as the love-to-hate-him Deacon Sharpe on Friday, June 13 — and the sudser’s headwriter, Bradley P. Bell, says it’s going to be one hellraising return!

“Deacon is one of our greatest characters — a guy who is all about money, power and status, and this time will be no different,” the scribe reveals in a recent interview with TV Guide. “Deacon is also the father of our central character, Hope Logan [Kim Matula], which makes him especially valuable right now. We’re going to find out that he’s been going from town to town trying to get something going for himself. He eventually finds his way back to Los Angeles, ostensibly because he misses his daughter. But, as we all know, he’d sell her to the highest bidder if it served his purposes.”

Now that “General Hospital’s” Sean Kanan (ex-A.J. Quartermaine) is headed back to “The Bold and the Beautiful” to reprise his role as sleazy con-man Deacon Sharpe, “The Young and the Restless” fans are wondering if the character will be swinging by Genoa City to visit his former lover, Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott). And while that may be an eventuality, “B&B’s” headwriter, Bradley P. Bell, admits that instead of loaning out Deacon to “Y&R,” he’d rather steal Nikki for his own sudser!

As Aisha Tyler said yesterday on “The Talk,” John Mayer has a history of being a little bit of a stomp-around, and according to a recent Perez Hilton story about his breakup with singer Katy Perry, he’s living up to the reputation!

According to the gossip site, the reason Perry broke it off with Mayer was because of his cheating ways: It seems he’s been busy sexting “General Hospital’s” Kelly Monaco (Sam McCall), whom he reportedly met years ago!

Former “General Hospital” star Sebastian Roche (ex-Jerry Jacks) will soon be gracing the screen of ABC again — but instead of popping up in Port Charles, he’ll be appearing on the alphabet network’s hit primetime drama, “Scandal!”

A rep for the show confirms that the actor will be appearing in a handful of episodes beginning this Thursday, April 3. The spokesperson remained tight-lipped about addition details, but Roche tweeted a photo of himself on set of the popular series looking as handsome as ever in a Paul Smith suit.

“Scandal” airs on Thursdays on ABC at 10PM ET.
