“The Young and the Restless” viewers were recenlty hit with a one-two punch regarding the role of Kelly Andrews: Current portrayer Cynthia Watros was officially announced as stepping out of the role in order to take part in MTV’s new series “Finding Carter,” while Emmy winner Cady McClain (Dixie, “All My Children;” Roseanna, “As the World Turns”) was announced to be stepping into the role of the grieving mother! Soap Opera Network took part in McClain’s very first “Y&R” press conference, and the actress dished on how she landed the exciting role, how she feels about replacing Watros, working with her former Pine Valley co-stars in Genoa City and her experience saying goodbye to “AMC” and Dixie once and for all.

“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!
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!
