Thursday, April 25 marks the beginning of Jennifer Bassey‘s (ex-Marian Colby, “All My Children”) multi-episode arc on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” Word of Bassey’s appearance on the popular primetime series first came to light on Sunday, March 17, when the actress tweeted, “Got a two episode role on Grey’s Anatomy. Wonderful part and i’m very excited. Start mon. the 18th. what a great show. xx :)” She later revealed on Wednesday, March 27 that her appearance on the show had been bumped to three episodes. “Hey just got a 3rd episode on Grey’s Anatomy. Yipeeee!!! What a great group of people. Kevin McKidd is directing and acting. Hes fab. :)”

According to a network spokesperson, in the episode entitled “Sleeping Monster,” Bassey will portray the role of Nancy Dawson, the grandmother of Ethan Dawson (Kyle Silverstein) who came to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital in the Thursday, March 28 episode (“Can’t Fight This Feeling”) with his parents who were severely injured after a gas tanker exploded. McKidd’s character, Dr. Owen Hunt, has been working tirelessly to aid Ethan during his time of need including postponing a social worker assigned to take care of his predicament by pretending Ethan was ill in order to keep him in the hospital and close to his parents during the Thursday, April 4 episode (“She’s Killing Me”).

Hogan Sheffer: Staying or Going?

When Maria Arena Bell was fired as head writer and executive producer of "The Young and the Restless" on Thursday, July 26, just one day earlier Soap Opera Digest reported that Scott Hamner, one of the soaps co-head writers, would also be leaving at the end of his contract. "I had decided to let my contract expire but Maria[Arena Bell, executive producer/head writer] asked if we could call it a sabbatical instead," explained Hamner in a statement. "She really didn't want me to leave, so I agreed to take a few months off. She has been so gracious and generous about my need to take a break and I appreciate that." Meanwhile, with the appointment of Josh Griffith as Bell's replacement as head writer, many began to wonder whether Hogan Sheffer would remain as the other co-head writer of the soap.

Former ‘All My Children’ Actress Gets a Class in ‘Jersey Couture’

Noting the nations thirst for New Jersey based reality entertainment, in the summer of 2010, the cable network Oxygen jumped into the fray with "Jersey Couture." Except for being based in New Jersey, viewers will not see much similarities between this series and the eccentricities of Bravo's "Real Housewives of New Jersey" and MTV's "Jersey Shore." "Jersey Couture" rather takes a page from TLC's "Say Yes to the Dress." Both programs share the same producers. This reality series follows the fun and drama surrounding the Scali family (and their customers) as they run Diane & Co., one of New Jersey's premiere dress boutiques.
