What you need to know about Gilles Marini’s turn as Ted Laurent on NBC’s “Days of our Lives.”
Former “Devious Maids” and “Entourage” star Dania Ramirez (ex-Rosie Falta) was said to be joining the upcoming seventh season of “Once Upon a Time” as a series regular, but now comes word from ABC that she’ll not only be playing the mother of an adult Henry’s child, but she’ll also be playing a different version of the beloved Cinderella.
Another former daytime star has joined the cast of “Devious Maids.” Sean Blakemore, remembered as Shawn Butler on “General Hospital” has boarded the Season 4 cast of the Lifetime series.
Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children;” Genevieve Delatour, “Devious Maids”) opened up about her grandson’s battle with cerebral palsy on a recent episode of “The Dr. Oz Show.” Together, Lucci and her daughter, Liza Huber (ex-Gwen Winthrop, “Passions”), shared the emotions they went through upon learning Liza’s son Brendan, now 7, had the non-progressive neurological disorder.
Ryan McPartlin (ex-Hank Bennett, “Passions”) is the latest soap alum to join the “Devious Maids” cast. The actor has signed on for a recurring role in season four of the Lifetime mystery drama series.
“Days of our Lives” alum Nathan Owens (ex-Cameron Davis) is returning to “Devious Maids”, when the show debuts its fourth season. And he’s been promoted from recurring character to series regular.
Susan Lucci portrayed the iconic role of Erica Kane on ABC’s “All My Children” for more than 41 years. Sadly, the character would last be seen on September 23, 2011, when a shot rang out during an event that brought Pine Valley’s most prominent citizens together. Despite Prospect Park bringing back the series for a short-lived online iteration in 2013, Lucci was unfortunately not part of the cast. Currently pulling double duty as host of the Investigation Discovery series, “Deadly Affairs,” and starring in Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” Lucci recently told Soap Opera Network, during an Investigation Discovery/Glamour Magazine event honoring actresses Rosario Dawson, Marcia Gay Harden, Tamara Taylor and Stephanie March, that she remains proud of her daytime run as Erica Kane and that’s she’s having a great time with where her career has taken her since.
You asked, and we answered! Following Soap Opera Network’s report that former “Days of our Lives” star Matt Cedeno (ex-Brandon Walker) would be appearing on an upcoming episode of ABC Family’s “Baby Daddy,” your enthusiasm was so great, we reached out to the star to see if he’d spill additional details about his appearance. And guess what? Not only was he more than happy to discuss his sitcom role (which airs Wednesday, October 22), he also opened up about starring in 50 Cent’s drama series, “Powers,” his reaction to Alison Sweeney’s departure as “DAYS’” Sami and much more!
With a 13-episode order, Lifetime has renewed “Devious Maids,” executive produced by Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria (“Desperate Housewives”), and starring Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramírez, Roselyn Sánchez, Edy Ganem, Judy Reyes and Susan Lucci (“All My Children”), for a third season.
“Days of our Lives’” Kate (Lauren Koslow) wasn’t the only one who was shocked when Jordan (Chrishell Stause) hauled back and slapped her across the face for sleeping with Rafe (Galen Gering): Viewers were a bit surprised to see the formerly timid physical therapist continue to grow her backbone, as well. And when Soap Opera Network recently caught up with Stause, she revealed that this is only the beginning of her alter ego’s catty side. In fact, Jordan will be getting tougher and tougher as more and more secrets about her unfold!
She may have helped create one of the most popular and socially engaging television programs on the air today with Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” but that doesn’t mean fans of former “Desperate Housewives” and “The Young and the Restless” actress and entrepreneur Eva Longoria have seen the last of her in front of the camera. FOX announced earlier this evening that Longoria will guest-star for a three-episode arc on the second season of its Golden Globe award winning comedy series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” which co-stars former “One Life to Live” actress Melissa Fumero (ex-Adriana Cramer) as Detective Amy Santiago.
“All My Children’s” Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) has a winning career with a long history in daytime and a current role as “Devious Maids’” Genevieve Delatour, but is she also a winner when it comes to real estate? Time will tell, as the actress and her husband, Helmut Huber, have just put their Hamptons home on the market!
“Devious Maids'” Susan Lucci (Genevieve Delatour) famously received a record 19 Daytime Emmy Award nominations in the category of Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of Erica Kane on ABC’s “All My Children” before finally taking home the golden statue for the first and only time on Friday, May 21, 1999, after Shemar Moore (ex-Malcom Winters, “The Young and the Restless”) declared, “The streak is over… Susan Lucci!”
Everyone loves a comeback, and it’s no different in the case of the rumor that the Queen of Soaps, Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children”), managed to get Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall Hart) fired from the sudser back in the 90s. Though the rumor is quite ancient in the daytime industry, it’s getting a second life on sites like Us Weekly and Perez Hilton thanks to a comment Kathy Griffin made as host of the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards live webcast on Sunday, June 22.
Set your DVRs not only for Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” but also for “The Steve Harvey Show,” as Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane, “All My Children”) will be dropping by the talk show next week to celebrate Mother’s Day!
