“The Young and the Restless” has seen a lot of actors go as of late, and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe Abbott) may be the next to depart the canvas!
Last week’s ratings for soaps may have been a little low (as Soap Opera Network reported here), but as for February Sweeps? “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” kicked some major you-know-what!
“The Bold and the Beautiful” is amping up the intrigue this March with some major “oh no they didn’t!” plot points: Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Katie (Heather Tom) have a sensual sex session, Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Bill (Don Diamont) go on booze benders, dead Darla (Schae Harrison) makes a ghostly return and Aly (Ashlyn Pearce) brings whole new meaning to the term “super strange!” Read on for more details, straight from TV Guide and “B&B’s” executive producer, Bradley P. Bell!
Some of daytime’s most popular stars are taking a break from their dramatic, twist-and-turn-filled storylines and grabbing the mic for an all-night fan-filled crooning session!
There’s been some behind the scenes buzz that perhaps Jon Lindstrom (Kevin Collins, “General Hospital”) and Cady McClain (Kelly Andrews, “The Young and the Restless;” Dixie, “All My Children”) recently had a secret wedding ceremony, but it’s a mere rumor no longer: Lindstrom has revealed that McClain is in fact his brand new wife!
Queen of Soaps Susan Lucci (Genevieve Delatour, “Devious Maids;” Erica Kane “All My Children”) is adding one more accomplishment to her long list of admirable achievements: She’ll be returning as host for the 13th Annual UCP of NYC Women Who Care luncheon!
The official Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards were announced earlier today, and fans of “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” may have noticed something peculiar: Both online versions of the shows were much less represented than their network counterparts.
Fans of “One Life to Live’s” Tika Sumpter (Layla Williamson) were thrilled when she was cast as Candace Young on OWN’s “The Haves and the Have Nots,” but the actress recently revealed on “The Tyler Perry Show” that she almost didn’t accept the role — until Oprah Winfrey herself got on the phone! But how did the conversation go down? Read on to find out!
“The Young and the Restless” viewers weren’t exactly thrilled when popular actor Billy Miller announced that he would be exiting the role of Billy Abbott, but the rough waters were mostly calmed when former portrayer David Tom (brother of “The Bold and the Beautiful’s” Heather Tom ) swooped in to take back the role. It’s been a fairly smooth transition for most viewers, but jumping into the middle of such an intense storyline — the death of Delia and having been outed for cheating on Victoria (Amelia Heinle) —was a bit of an adjustment for the actor!
“General Hospital’s” Emme Rylan (Lulu Spencer) is no stranger to heartbreaking baby loss storylines. As “Guiding Light’s” Lizzie Spaulding, she had to play out the emotional arc in which Lizzie believed her daughter, Sarah, had died in a car accident. And while Rylan is proud of the work she was able to bring as her Springfield alter ego, she’s of the opinion that now having two children of her own (Jackson, 4, and Levi, 2) is making her current baby-loss storyline much stronger.
Playboy may have found popularity by publishing risqué photos of women, but as the old excuse goes, some people actually read it “for the articles.” And those who picked up the March 2014 issue of the popular mag for reading purposes only were in for a lovely daytime related surprise: The publication stripped down popular primetime series made predominately for a male audience and declares they’re exactly like “The Bold and the Beautiful,” The Young and the Restless,” “General Hospital,” and “Days of our Lives” — with a manly twist.
Former “One Life to Live” actor Roger Hill, who played Alex Lowndes, has died.
