Daytime Emmy Award winner Bryan Craig is ready to return to daytime television, tweeting interest to all four daytime soaps. Which one will bite first?

Fans of online series "Youthful Daze" will soon get a dose of "The Young and the Restless'" <strong>Melody Thomas Scott</strong> (Nikki Newman), when she debuts in upcoming episodes as Nicole Wallace, the mother of resident bad boy Randy Milhouse (<strong>Reese Mishler</strong>). Scott's character is described as being "calculated and waspy."

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.

<strong>Chrishell Stause</strong> is concluding her run on NBC's "Days of our Lives" as Jordan Ridgeway, it was announced today by the actress herself on Twitter. "Sadly I have wrapped up my time over at <strong><s>@</s>nbc</strong>d<strong>ays</strong>. It's been an amazing journey & the best is yet to come for Jordan," she <a href="https://twitter.com/Chrishell7/status/525694709231255552" target="_blank">wrote</a>.

It’s been said that the remaining four network television soaps are like all-star sports teams, consisting of the best of the best of actors in the daytime community. But the latest casting announcement for the online soap opera “Youthful Daze” shoots it right up into the Big Leagues: <strong>Trevor St. John</strong> (ex-Todd Manning/Victor Lord, “One Life to Live”), <strong>Bryan Craig</strong> (Morgan Corinthos, “General Hospital”), <strong>Chrishell Stuase</strong> (Jordan Ridgeway, “Days of our Lives;” ex-Amanda Dillon, “All My Children”) and <strong>Rick Hearst</strong> (Ric Lansing, “GH;” ex-Whip Jones, “The Bold and the Beautiful”) have joined the series, which already boasts a cast with a couple of recognizable names in the industry!

Former “One Life to Live” actress Brittany Underwood (ex-Langston Wilde) has been busy filming the online soap opera “Youthful Daze" (which you can watch <a href="http://www.youthfuldaze.com/" target="_blank">here</a>), but she somehow managed to squeeze in time to film a guest-starring role on the ABC sitcom “The Goldbergs!”

<strong>Jen Lilley</strong> is well aware that she hit soap opera gold when she landed the role of "Days of our Lives'" Theresa Donovan. The feisty character has gotten one stellar storyline after the next — and it doesn’t look like the runaway train will be stopping any time soon! <em>Soap Opera Network</em> caught up with actress, who spilled the deets on Theresa’s rivalry with Kristen (<strong>Eileen Davidson</strong>), her love/hate relationship with sister Eve (<strong>Kassie DePaiva</strong>), and how her alter ego just may well be done with her current love life once and for all!
