Monty Brinton/CBS

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — According to TV Guide‘s Michael Logan, CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” is bringing Sean Kanan back into the fold as the soap plans to reintegrate Deacon Sharpe onto the canvas beginning next month. Since 2009, the character had been living it up on network sibling “The Young and the Restless” as part of a connection he built with Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) in Genoa City.

For those of you who remember, Deacon is the father of Hope Logan from an affair he had with her mother Brooke Logan (Katherine Kelly Lang) back in the early 2000′s (Deacon was on “B&B” from 2000 to 2005). While exact details are unknown as to why he has returned to Los Angeles, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him deeply involved in the soaps current pill-popping storyline that recently married Hope finds herself in.

Will Daddy help or hurt his baby girl? Tune in to find out beginning Thursday, May 24 on CBS.

“The Bold and the Beautiful” Weekly Promo for the Week of April 2, 2012.



Adam Taylor/ABC

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Jack Wagner, 52, is a soap opera legend and singer, but for millions of viewers he’s a dancing star courtesy of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” The actor joined the 14th cycle (season) of the reality-competition series along with such celebrities as Melissa Gilbert (actor, “Little House on the Prairie”), Sherri Shepherd (talk show host and actress, “The View”), Jaleel White (actor, “Family Matters”), Gladys Knight (singer), Donald Driver (NFL star, “Green Bay Packers”), William Levy (latin soap star), Katherine Jenkins (opera star), Gavin DeGraw (singer), Martina Navratilova (tennis star), Roshon Fegan (actor, “Shake It Up!) and Maria Menounos (TV host and correspondent), but what fans truly want to know is if Wagner is heading back to ABC’s “General Hospital” after being taken off contract by CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” in early February.

In promotion of “Dancing’s” current season each celebrity is taking part in “You Tweeted, They Answered,” a taped segment in which they answer questions provided to them by “Dancing with the Stars’” Twitter followers (@DancingABC). Of the three questions Wagner answered none was as attention grabbing for soap fans, in particular those watching “General Hospital” (in which Wagner portrayed Frisco Jones off and on from 1983 to 1995), as the one pertaining to his possible return to the soap that put him on the map. When asked if he “would you ever consider coming back to “General Hospital,” Wagner stated “Frisco’s never dead, man! He’s right here! Yeah!” While that isn’t an outright yes, or much of an answer in itself, it does help that “Dancing” is on the same network as “GH” and with Kristina Wagner (Felicia Jones) reportedly returning to the soap in late April the possibilities are endless. If you want to ask Wagner your own question, he’s always available online @JackWagnerHPK.

In addition to his Emmy nominated stint on “General Hospital,” Wagner portrayed the Emmy nominated role of Dominick “Nick” Marone on CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful” and was the much beloved and hated Dr. Peter Burns on the FOX primetime soap “Melrose Place.” Other soap stints include appearances in NBC’s short-lived primetime soap “Titans” and daytime soap “Sunset Beach.”

Fans can vote for Wagner each week via telephone or text message until an hour after the Monday performance broadcast of “Dancing with the Stars” based on their local time zones. To vote by text message, text the word “VOTE” using the information below:
