The Young and the Restless
ALL THINGS RELATED

Daniel Jonas’ journey on “Days of our Lives” has taken portrayer Shawn Christian on a plethora of adventures, many of which have included top talent from the drama series. But of all the storylines the devilishly handsome doc has played out, fans seem to have gravitated toward the cat-and-mouse game Daniel and Kristen (Eileen Davidson) have been involved in over the past couple of months the most. And Soap Opera Network has good news for fans: The delicious drama is far from being over, and Christian has shared some of the juicy details of the story below!
With soap stars Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, "The Young and the Restless"; Kristen DiMera, "Days of our Lives") and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed, "DAYS"; ex-Taylor McBride, "Melrose Place") currently filming the fifth season of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," it was only a matter of time before a network greenlit a new reality series/docu-series comprised solely of the divas of daytime and primetime soap operas.
As Soap Opera Network gets ready to celebrate its 13th anniversary on Wednesday, October 8, we are proud to announce that we will begin providing our readers with weekly ratings reports for not just the daytime soaps, but also talk shows "The Chew," "The Talk," "The View," "The Today Show 2" and "The Today Show 3," as well as game shows "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price is Right," along with the previously reported ratings for "The Young and the Restless," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Bold and the Beautiful." The charts, which will vary week to week, does not take away from the weekly daytime drama rankings we will continue posting each week, but instead represents what daytime programming as a whole looks like when compared with one another and not based solely on genre.
The wedding of Nicholas and Sharon Newman (Joshua Morrow and Sharon Case) kicked off yesterday, October 3, but before the couple can say their "I Do's," Phyllis Summers (Gina Tognoni) is back in town and getting ready to crash the wedding, but will she get there in time? Viewers who tuned into the episode found Phyllis get stopped by a cop who's apparently there to arrest or detain her, but in the promo for next week's episodes, Phyllis rolls up in the chapel ready to reveal all, and Sharon's a devastated mess. "I don't know what she knows," an emotional Sharon says to Nicholas, who wonders if it's about the secret (which secret?) that has her all flustered. Of course, it could all be just a dream. Hmm...
As previously reported, CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" is currently on location filming scenes in Amsterdam for upcoming episodes of the daytime drama series. In a soap opera twist, cast members from the soap met up with the stars of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," which reportedly now includes former "B&B" actress Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott, "The Young and the Restless"; Kristen DiMera, "Days of our Lives") and Lisa Rinna (ex-Billie Reed). Incidentally, because Bravo has yet to confirm either actresses participation in the series, it looks like the meeting of the former soapers (along with "Housewife" Lisa Vanderpump) and the cast of "B&B" has resulted in the "secret" being revealed!
Former soap star Eden Riegel (ex-Heather Stevens, “The Young and the Restless;” ex-Bianca Montgomery, “All My Children”) may have bowed out from the daytime world for the time being, but she’s still hard at work in front of the camera, this time on CBS’ primetime hit, “Criminal Minds.” And Soap Opera Network is bringing you the first sneak peek at the actress’ stint on the show, which also stars “Y&R’s” Shemar Moore (ex-Malcolm Winters)!
Since it was announced earlier this month that Billy Miller (ex-Billy Abbott, "The Young and the Restless") would officially be joining the cast of ABC's "General Hospital" in the contract role of Jason Morgan, previously portrayed by Steve Burton (Dylan McAvoy, "Y&R") after months of rumors and speculation, the three time Daytime Emmy Award winning actor will finally show his face on the Wednesday, October 1 episode of the daytime drama series, it was revealed today by head writer Ron Carlivati and actress Michelle Stafford (Nina Clay) on Twitter.
You might think you’re seeing double today when tuning into NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” but no need to get your eyes checked: Eileen Davidson is in fact appearing as two different characters. Today marks the day that the Emmy-winning actress appears as both Susan Banks (whacky mother of EJ [James Scott]) and Kristen DiMera in a storyline that brings the arch-nemeses face to face! But if that’s not enough to make you jump up and down in glee, get this: Davidson also appears on “The Young and the Restless” as Ashley Abbott today — which marks the first time in soap opera history that an actress is appearing on two different shows as three different characters in one day!
On today's episode of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," the Nicholas and Sharon Bachelor/Bachelorette party is about to go down in the history books as the one which found 20 of the show's characters all get arrested at the same exact time during the same exact event, a first for daytime television. "It's one of the funniest shows we've shot in so long. Everybody is in the show. It's a bachelor and a bachelorette party, everything goes wrong, everybody had so much fun. I mean, we had fun shooting it, the characters were having a great time at this party. It really was almost like 'The Hangover' [the movie] kind of," shared Sharon Case (Sharon) in a joint interview with Joshua Morrow (Nicholas) set to air today on Hallmark Channel's "Home & Family."
