Soap fans were thrilled when Oprah Winfrey’s network, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network, announced that it would be airing a summer soap opera fling in which the first 40 episodes of the online soaps “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” would broadcast over a 10 week period. And with the possibility of the network picking up both shows permanently if the ratings are high, a lot is on the line when it comes to those numbers! So just how did the sudsers perform?
Anyone who follows “General Hospital’s” Jack Wagner (Frisco Jones, ex-Dominick Marone, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) on Twitter knows that he’s used the social media site to air a lot of personal thoughts over the past few weeks following the death of his dog, Stanley. The actor has opened up about loss and addiction, among other things. But this week, he’s taken his admissions to a whole new level by bashing ‘GH’ and the way the executives and writers handled the sudser’s 50th anniversary!
Casting for Hallmark’s upcoming backdoor pilot, “My Gal Sunday” has been in full swing, and three of the series’ major players have finally been confirmed: Jack Wagner (Frisco Jones, “General Hospital;” ex-Dominick Marone, “The Bold and the Beautiful”), Cameron Mathison (ex-Ryan Lavery, “All My Children”) and Rachel Blanchard (“Clueless;” “7th Heaven”).
CENTER STAGE: Michael Nader Opens Up About His ‘AMC’ Return and the Mistake That Almost Convinced Him to Quit!
Longtime “All My Children” fans couldn’t believe it when news broke that Michael Nader would be bringing his popular alter ego, Dimitri Marick, back to the show. And even though it’s been over a month since his June 12 onscreen debut, it’s still a little bit hard to believe that he’s really back in Pine Valley — even for the actor himself! And it turns out, it was a return that nearly didn’t happen.
Get ready to party, because this year’s Rick Springfield and Friends Cruise, hosted by the rocker (Dr. Noah Drake, “General Hospital”) himself, has added two special guests to the event: recent Emmy winner, Doug Davidson (Paul Williams, “The Young and the Restless”), and “Days of our Lives’” Eric Martsolf (Brady Black).
Times, they are a-changin'! Due to a last minute switch in the production schedule over at "General Hospital," there are some schedule changes taking place for a few of the "GH" Fan Club Weekend events taking place on Friday, July 26.
The list of talented stars and entertaining programming to receive Primetime Emmy nods this year is a long one, but don’t fret: Soap Opera Network has scanned the complete list and broken down the show with multiple nominations into an easy-to-see numbers list for those of you who don't need too many details — except to see who's in the lead!
Warner Bros. next animated movie will be “Justice League: War,” and former “The Young and the Restless” star Shemar Moore (ex-Malcolm Winters) is going to be in it!
“Devious Maids” star Paula Garces (Lea Marquez, “All My Children”) won’t have any trouble finding a fellow playdate mommy once her bundle of joy arrives this fall: Her “Maids” co-star Dania Ramirez is also expecting — twins!
Remember “One Life to Live’s” Scott Evans (ex-Oliver Fish, and the brother of “Captain America’s” Chris Evans)? Remember how he was arrested last year for possession of a controlled substance after he tried to buy cocaine from an undercover officer? Well... he’s now officially off the hook for the unfortunate mistake!
They say fast-paced soap operas are good training grounds for primetime gigs, and that must be the case, considering several former soap stars have garnered Primetime Emmy nods this year! In light of the official announcement of the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Award nominees, Soap Opera Network brings you the who, what and where of stars who've given sudsers a go.
The anticipation leading up to the announcement of the 65th Primetime Emmy awards has been building for weeks, and “Breaking Bad’s” Aaron Paul and “How I Met Your Mother’s” Neil Patrick Harris finally made the official list public this morning.
