Now that the news is out that <strong>Molly Burnett</strong> will soon be returning as “Days or Our Lives’” Melanie, daughter of Daniel (<strong>Shawn Christian</strong>), it’s safe to assume that Papa Jonas’ life is about to get more colorful than ever!

In an interview with the actress, Alfonso provides <em>Soap Opera Network</em> with insight on why Hope doesn't need anyone's permission to move on with her life, how the relationship between Aiden Jennings (<strong>Daniel Cosgrove</strong>) and Hope is a new, but sweet kind of love, and why she was surprised Reckell said what he did on social media.
It’s been America’s favorite game show for as long as most can remember, but “The Price Is Right” is looking completely different these days. However, if <strong>Mike Richards</strong> has done the job he intended since stepping into the role of executive producer in 2009, nobody’s the wiser that the game show has basically done a 180 in recent years!
While the date for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards wasn't necessarily a secret, it was still somewhat surprising when it was revealed that next year's Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards would be taking place on <strong>Friday, April 24</strong> and the big show would be taking place on<strong> Sunday, April 26</strong> - the earliest either ceremony will have taken place since at least 2006.<strong> </strong>In an interview with <strong>David Michaels</strong>, Senior Executive Director and Co-Executive Producer for the Daytime Emmy Awards & Events, who notes to <em>Soap Opera Network</em> that we can likely thank "The Young and the Restless'"<strong> Christian Le Blanc</strong> (Michael Baldwin) for revealing the dates online, the executive addresses the red carpet debacle that rocked the industry earlier this year, while also providing insight into what we can look forward to seeing from both the creative side and the broadcast side for next year's telecast, and a greater understanding of how four new categories will change the future of the awards ceremony.

“The Young and the Restless’” Billy Abbot has seen quite a transformation in recent months. After portrayer Billy Miller decided to walk away from the show in January of this year, former portrayer David Tom was cast in the role. But just a few short months later, it was announced that Tom — who previously played the character from 1999 to 2002 — had been ordered to pack his bags so that daytime newcomer Burgess Jenkins could step into the role. And while it was Miller’s decision to leave the character he’d played since 2008, the same cannot be said for Tom, who was reportedly very surprised to learn he’d been replaced with Jenkins after just four months of being back in the role! So what happened to lead to such a quick casting turnaround? We asked CBS Vice President of Daytime, Angelica McDaniel, who told Soap Opera Network that the recast was not an easy turn of events for anyone involved.
