In GL Buzz, watch for the character of Michelle to disappear off the canvas in the near future.  Her portrayer, Nancy St. Alban, begins her maternity leave on Monday, May 2, 2005.  (Contributed by LMS)

Several weeks ago we told you about the generosity of The Bold and the Beautiful. The soap donated 35 haute couture evening and wedding gowns to an eBay auction to raise money benefiting the City of Hope.  On April 2, 2005 stars from B&B came out to support the event, The City of Hope Award of Hope Gala 2005, which was held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.  Maeve Quinlan (Megan), Kayla Ewell (Caitlin), Winsor Harmon (Thorne), Dan McVicar (Clarke), Adrienne Frantz (Amber), Ashley Jones (Bridget), Jack Wagner (Nick) and Lorenzo Lamas (Hector) with his lovely fiancee, former National Ballroom Dance Champion, Barbara Moore, were on hand.  Also in attendance was Daytime Emmy Award winning Birgit Muller, Costume Designer of B&B, along with sister soap Y&R's Lauralee Bell (Christine).  (Contributed by LMS)

According to Michael Starr of the NY Post, Eileen Fulton (Lisa, ATWT), is not only celebrating 45 years on the soap this year, she has a new guy in her life.  Is she cheating on her family?  Nope, not in the least. She's a volunteer for Soldier's Angels, an organization that encourages civilians stateside to "adopt" soldiers fighting overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Fulton is writing letters and sending care packages to cheer up the soldier adoptee. Wonder if he's a fan of ATWT?  Wouldn't that be a swell touch of home for him? Want to join Fulton and be a Soldier's Angel? Click here.  (Contributed by LMS & CL)
 
In ABC Daytime Buzz, it's congratulations to Brian Frons (head hauncho and president of the daypart) who is being honored this week -- May 3 to be exact -- by the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University from which he is a graduate.  The event takes place during a 40th anniversary celebration at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, 80 Columbus Circle at 60th Street in NYC. Frons is being honored along with 39 other successful and distinguished alumni. Will ABC daytime illuminaries come out to cheer him on?  Hey, NYC ABC fans! Head on over to the Mandrian Oriental on Tuesday, and let us know!  (Contributed by LMS & CL)

In B&B Buzz, after extensive casting in both Los Angeles and New York for Ciro Moriello and Jonathan Rola’s feature film, “Sons of Italy," Sean Kanan (Deacon, B&B) has been cast in the lead role. Kanan will play the role of Michele Morri, an Italian native in this romantic tragedy that unfolds against the backdrop of a real life terrorist attack that took place on an Italian merchant marine vessel off the Coast of Algeria in the mid 1990s.  Shooting is scheduled to begin in early May of 2005 on the Isle of Capri and on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Kanan recently completed a starring role in “Carpool Guy," the film that marks the theatrical directorial debut of Corbin Bernsen (Durant, GH).  (Contributed by LMS)

April 29, 2005

Congratulations to All My Children for winning the Entertainment Industries Council PRISM Award for Television Daytime Drama Multi-Episode Story Line for the episode titled:  "Erica's Intervention."  AMC star Eden Riegel (ex Bianca), accepted the award at the 9th annual PRISM award ceremony held in Beverly Hills, CA on Thursday, April 28, 2005.  The PRISM Award honors those show's which best exemplify the accurage depiction of drug, alcohol, tobacco use and addiction.  "Erica's Intervention" depicted how Emmy-Award winning actress Susan Lucci's character, Erica Kane, deals with alcohol addiction.  After the death of her daughter's baby, and the death of the baby's father, Erica, who has a history of pill addiction, turned to alcohol to escape her pain.  In a series of emotional episodes, Erica's family rallies around her, leading to an intervention.  With her families' suport, Erica realizes her problem and eventually gets the help she needs.  (Contributed by LMS)

Jason Cook (Shawn) of Days of our Lives can breathe a sigh of relief and Jason's fans can rejoice. Recent drug charges against the actor have been dropped because of a technicality.  (Contributed by MEW)

In other Salem news Julie Pinson (Billie) broke her arm in real life, and it will be incorporated into the storyline. (Contributed by MEW)

Buzz hears that Galen Gering (Luis) of Passions has signed once again on the dotted line, and rumor has it his storyline will explode! (Contributed by MEW)

April 28, 2005

Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie, GH) and Brian Krause (Leo, Charmed) will star in Primitive Entertainment’s “The Mission.”  Krause scripted and will direct this indy feature film, which begins lensing in Los Angeles this May.  Zeman’s character is being stalked by Krause’s, with an ending that will surprise movie goers. (Contributed by LMS)

 

April 26, 2005

In Passions Buzz, the show is currently on location in Las Vegas taping scenes for an upcoming storyline.  In the NBC small world department, Soapdom has learned that a star from NBC's primetime show, Las Vegas, will guest star on Passions as part of this storyline!  Talk about crossover!   (Contributed by LMS)

In ATWT news, the net is buzzing about Kin Shriner (Keith). I just made the message board rounds. I tell you the fans are loving Keith/Kin, they really enjoyed his kissing scene with Lily.  They've repeated his words and actions of the scenes, labeling him quite a man in a little boy way. They're hoping his character is here to stay and that he isn't the bad guy, the way the writers seem to be going.  They have titled the couple "Killy."  (Contributed by CL)

Buzz hears that Days of our Lives is casting a teen guy for a big role. Stay tuned! In other Salem news...Alison Sweeney (Sami) returns in May, but don't look for Stan (Dan Wells) to make an exit. At least not yet. (Contributed by MEW)

In Llanview news, Catherine Hickland (Lindsay) will be put on recurring status this July when her contract expires. Hickland is the real-life wife of Michael E. Knight (Tad) of All MY Children. Word is that she's likely to try her luck back in Hollywood. (Contributed by MEW)

And rumor has it that The Bold And The Beautiful is looking to cast a role, but buzz is that it may be someone from the past. Interesting! (Contributed by MEW)

April 23, 2005

On a sad note, condolences go out to Juliet Mills (Tabitha, Passions) on the passing of her dad, Oscar-winning British actor Sir John Mills.  He was 97 years-old.  Mills was not only a great performer, but great man that will be missed. (Contributed by MEW)

In B&B Buzz, a source close to the set tells Soapdom that Shanelle Workman (Gaby) is dating Constantine from American Idol!  Pretty juicy!  (Contributed by KS)

It's official. Eva La Rue (Maria, AMC) has announced on her official message board that she will be leaving All My Children.  She does not say when her last airdate will be, but does say that AMC will always be her second home. "When I miss Pine Valley, all I have to do is close my eyes, click my heels three times and say, 'there's no place like home.'" Her reasons for leaving the show are personal, citing her family in LA has been calling to her to return for some time.  Looks like now's the time.  Read her post. (Contributed by LMS)

In GH Buzz, each year The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) holds a charity auction in May. This year, General Hospital has donated a signed GH script. While the auction isn't live yet, you can go to www.ebay.com/missingkids to sign up for the "auction watch."  (Contributed by LMS)

April 22, 2005

Buzz hears that Kyle Lowder (Brady) is in contract negotiations with Days of our Lives, and negotiations with Galen Gering (Luis) of Passions don't look too good. (Contributed by MEW)

Also in Salem buzz, if the new Chelsea looks familiar that's because in January she played Georgia, Bo and Billie's daughter in Europe. Rachael Melvin takes over the role next month from Mandy Musgrave who is heading to bigger and better things. (Contributed by MEW)

And rumors already have begun that As The World Turns will be seeing changes with a new head writer in tow. Will there be comings and goings?  Stay tuned! (Contributed by MEW)

April 21, 2005

In ATWT Buzz, the rumor mill at the fan lunch was in high gear.  At yesterday's SOD chat someone asked the following question:  "Any Truth to the rumor that Lisa is going to be a Great Grandmother. This was heard at the Luncheon!"  The SOD editor replied that Tom/Margo have more romance and a goofy date coming soon. They'll also have trouble with Casey. That whole condo brouhaha was just the beginning. My thoughts:  Casey will become involved with Gwen.  (Contributed by CL)

In more ATWT Buzz, get up close and personal with Martha Byrne (Lily) and her real-life family as she shares the story of her early beginnings in the entertainment industry and how the need to be close to her family made her leave the bright lights of Hollywood behind, thanks to the help of a friendly priest and a stain-glassed window that reminded her of her church back home.  Read it. (Contributed by CL & LMS)

Plus, Scott Holroyd (ex Paul, ATWT) could be back on the air before we know it.  It is reported that he has joined the cast of a comedy pilot called Queen B. It's about a narcissistic woman (Alicia Silverstone) who used her manipulation skills to become the most popular girl in high school but now finds it harder to use those unlikable traits to her advantage in her late 20s. Holroyd is set to play a love interest for Bea (Silverstone's character) in the 20th Century Fox Television/Imagine Television-based project, which is executive produced by Jennifer Crittenden, David Nevins and Brian Grazer with Silverstone and Carolyn Kessler serving as co-executive producers. (Contributed by CL)

April 20, 2005

Buzz hears that a big name, and I mean a big name will soon step foot in Llanview. One Life to Live is planning on an explosive summer of storylines. Stay tuned. (Contributed by MEW)

And rumor has it that someone on Young and Restless may be heading to the big screen this fall. (Contributed by MEW)

April 19, 2005

Now here's a blast from the past. Buzz hears that Kristi McNichol (ex-Buddy of Family; Empty Nest; and Mommie Dearest) and sex symobol and hottie of the 1970's may be entering the world of soaps. Stay tuned. What ever happened to brother Jimmie? (Contributed by MEW)

April 18, 2005

In Passions Buzz, congratulations to Rodney Van Johnson (TC Russell) and Carmen Obando on the birth of their second child, a boy, Alexis Antonio Benjamin Obando Van Johnson, born on April 9, 2005 in Los Angeles, CA. (Contributed by LMS)

ATWT held its Fan Club luncheon in NYC this past weekend. Buzz is it was disappointing. Half the amount of fans (that's not a good sign) showed up, and only 17 actors, mostly the younger ones, were on hand when there was a tentative list of 23.  Of course, Martha Byrne (Lily) was there with bells on. She also revealed that Lily will be kissing Keith in the near future. Has the Lily/Holden pairing run its course?  Jessica Dunphy (Alison) told the fans she will be leaving comes June and did find the ending scenes with Agim Kaba (Aaron) very hard to do.  Anthony Herrera (Stenbeck) said he will be back, but not in scenes with Paul.  And would you believe that Cady McClain (Rosanna) is going on recurring status at her request to be free for whatever. Additionally, McClain shared a scoop on her storyline. Rosanna will be back to Oakdale, but without Cabot.  She puts the child someplace for safe keeping.  She tries to explain to Paul, and win him back, but he will have no part of it. Could be that Paul and Rosanna are doomed.  The only actor representing the Hughes family was the cute kid that plays Casey, Zach Roerig.  How sad is that. Where were all the other Hughes family members?  Speaking of the younger, newer cast members, no one went up to talk to the young girl that plays Celia, Alyssa Diaz.  Internet Buzz is that the fans really cannot stand actress or character, and they can be very mean and rude at times, as was displayed in Diaz's case by the blatant snub at the fan lunch.  Speaking of rude, Grayson McCouch (Dusty) came in ten minutes before the event ended.  Seems he had a few drinks too many and created quite a scene.  Not knowing that the president of the fan-club had just announced the luncheon was over and everyone had to clear the room, McCouch kept asking the fans why they were leaving. He thought that was rude, since he just got there. Um, isn’t rude showing up ten minutes before the event ends?  In addition to the above, here's everyone else who showed: Elizabeth Hubberd (Lucinda), Marie Masters (Susan), Michael Park (Jack), Maura West (Carly), Jon Hensley (Holden), Mark Collier (Mike), Jennifer Ferrin (Jennifer), Jesse Soffer (Will), Dylan Denton (JJ), Jake Weary (Luke), Trent Dawson (Henry) and Terri Colombino (Katie).

On the West Coast rumor has it that the powers that be at Passions are keeping their fingers crossed hoping that Galen Gering (Luis) will re-sign a new contract. McKenzie Westmore (Sheridan) already penned her John Hancock. (Contributed by MEW)

Buzz hears that Deidre Hall (Marlena, Days of our Lives) has filed for divorce from her husband, Steve Sohmer. This was Hall's third marriage, which proves that the third time is not always the charm. (Contributed by MEW)

And look for Kassie DePaiva (Blair; One Life to Live) to leave Llanview and head to The View, but only for one day. DePavia will guest host on April 25th. She, along with other celebs are taking the reigns while Elizabeth Hasselbeck is on maternity leave. (Contributed by MEW)

April 12, 2005

In Passions Buzz, the show announced yesterday that a new actor, Dylan Fergus, has been cast in the contract role of Ned who we first see in scenes that take place in Las Vegas.  Fergus has a list of previous credits that include JAG, What I Like About You, and AMC.  However, what Passions neglected to mention, is that this Carnegie Mellon School of Drama graduate also stars in the first ever gay/slasher movie, called "Hellbent," which was released in 2004.  According to MSN Movies:  "'Hellbent' ... follows five gay men fighting to stay alive at one of the most outrageous celebrations of the year -- Halloween night in West Hollywood. We follow the men through a night where flamboyant costumes, beautiful people, drugs, music, dancing and sex are everywhere. The authentic footage that the filmmakers acquired during Halloween Carnival lets filmgoers experience West Hollywood on its most exciting night of the year." You can see a photo of Fergus and clip of Hellbent on iFilm.  Fergus first airs on Passions in mid May.  (Contributed by LMS)

In AMC Buzz, the show is set to shoot on location next week.  Watch for these scenes to air in late April/early May. (Contributed by LMS)

In GH Buzz, word around the net is that Lesli Kay (Lois, ex Molly, ATWT) has been dropped to recurring status.  Could she be on her way back to Oakdale?  Stay tuned. (Contributed by CL)

According to SoapCity, Marie Wilson (ex Dr. Karen, PC shown here at left) will join the cast of ATWT to reprise the role of Meg Synder.  Meg was quite the upstart back then and her number 1 nemesis was Lily.  "Those were the good old days," quipped Soapdom's contributor, JJ.  So, the question is who will Meg set her devious sights on this time?  We'll have to wait for the summer to find out.  Visit SoapCity for more.

In GL Buzz, Crystal Hunt is Ready for Her Close-Up. The Daytime Emmy-Nominated young actress is set to star in the feature film, The Derby Stallion.  Best known to television audiences as evil teen Lizzie Spaulding on the popular CBS soap opera Guiding Light, Crystal Hunt brings her talent to the big screen in the upcoming film The Derby Stallion.  Hunt portrays Jill, a tomboy with an interest in romance, in this heart-warming family drama about a teenage boy who overcomes odds to become a winning jockey at a prestigious steeplechase race.

Joining Hunt in The Derby Stallion are former Guiding Light and One Life to Live star Tonja Walker, who is also the film’s co-producer; Summerland’s Zac Efron; Hope Floats' Bill Cobbs; and, Falcon Crest’s Billy Moses.  The talented cast also includes Billy Preston, Colton James, and Michael Nardelli.  Produced by Tonja Walker Productions and Scorpio Pictures, the film is being shot on location at Bouckaert Farm, Barnsley Gardens and Kingston Downs, home of the Atlanta Steeplechase for the past 12 years.

“I am so thrilled to be reunited with Tonja Walker,” Hunt says of her upcoming film adventure.  “We worked together on Guiding Light when I first joined the show in 2003.  It’s a real treat to be working with her again.”

Hunt has delighted Guiding Light fans with her portrayal of evil teen Lizzie Spaulding since her debut on the popular CBS soap opera in 2003.  An instant favorite with fans and critics, she recently received her first Daytime Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Younger Actress category. Hunt's film credits include From Earth to the Moon directed by Tom Hanks, Problem Child II, and Homeless Children.  Her numerous commercials include a spot for Disney’s 25th anniversary celebration and an anti-drug advertisement with the award-winning pop music group *NSYNC.

According to CBS, Jean Passanante has been named Headwriter of As The World Turns writing team. It was announced today by Mary Alice Dwyer-Dobbin, Executive-in-Charge of Production for Procter & Gamble Productions, Inc, and Christopher Goutman, the show’s Executive Producer. Passanante has been working on the show as the Co-Headwriter since May 2001. Passanante replaces Hogan Sheffer. (Contributed by MEW)

In more ATWT Buzz, Martha Byrne (Lily) is scheduled to host a Live Chat at her website, www.marthabyrne.net, on Monday, April 18, 2005 at 8 PM ET. (Contributed by CL)

While over at OLTL, Michael Bruno, a manager with many soap actors as clients, posted on his website last Friday that Melissa Archer (Natalie) was out and ABC was recasting the role. Other internet sources confirmed that she had been let go and casting would commence mid-week. Monday brings official news from ABC that ABC and Melissa are in "contract negotiations" and that she was not fired. Melissa's agent (Sheri) categorically denied the "firing" rumor and substantiated the ongoing "contract negotiations" ending that Melissa would love to stay in Llanview. Only time will tell if Monday's news is clarification or network spin. (Contributed by SS)

In more casting news, rumor has it that Passions is looking for a blond in her early 20's to play a character named Alicia who was born into money, has a clever sense of humor, but is less than obvious about her feelings.  It's not clear who Alicia will be interacting with in Harmony, but the actors auditioning for the part will read with Fox.  Guiding Light put the call out for an 18-year old guy. They are also seeking a college-aged woman with ties to Bill. Far as the continuing saga regarding the Joshua Madden character for AMC, this guy has little patience and is not afraid to go after what he wants when he wants it. He's got rugged good looks, and an outrageous sense of humor, and a definite way with the ladies. Looks like the summer is gonna really heat up. (Contributed by LMS)

In Daytime Emmy Buzz, the list of presenters has just been announced. See Soapdom's Emmy Headquarters.  Plus, you can vote for "the most irresistible combination" of daytime's hottest couples and enter to win a trip to the Daytime Emmy Awards.  Find out more.  (Contributed by LMS)

Soap stars Deidre Hall (Marlena, Days of our Lives) and Jane Elliot (Tracy,General Hospital) flew in to headline the event -- geared to helping women understand how to put themselves first. Way to go ladies! (Contributed by MEW)

April 8, 2005

In DOOL Buzz, Mandy Musgrave (Chelsea), has landed a pilot and is leaving. The role will be recast. The character is recurring. (Contributed by MEW)

TV Guide Online is reporting that As the World Turns has given head writer, Hogan Sheffer, his walking papers. As you all know, five-time Emmy nominee and three-time Emmy winner Sheffer recently took a 17-week sebatical from the show for undisclosed reasons.  Buzz is that now the show has asked him NOT to come back.  So far, there is no official comment from ATWT.  Nothing unusual there. Typically shows do not comment on contract status for anyone. According to Hogan's rep, the conflict is contract-related as both sides are still far apart on the terms. However, the issue is far from a done deal either way. We should know more later today. We will stay on top of this story. (Contributed by JJ, MEW and LMS)

Rumor has it that a biggie will be leaving Pine Valley, but the folks at All My Children are keeping mum. Could it be Rebecca Budig (Greenlee) as reported earlier?  Buzz is also that Eva LaRue (Maria) is wanting out.  Stay Tuned! (Contributed by MEW and LMS)

Jason Cook (Shawn) fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Buzz hears that despite the recent arrest of Cook for possession of drugs, his status on the show remains the same. At least for the moment. (Contributed by MEW)

And Bam Bam the orangutan, who played nurse Precious on Passions, is going late night. The Late Show with David Letterman has been incorporating clips of the little guy on his show.

April 6, 2005

As reported last week, AMC was casting for a new character, someone they called Joshua Madden.  There was rumor this AM that the casting call that went out for Joshua Madden was actually  to recast the character of Bobby Warner. I don't know who they cast, but he's already been hired. But now, there may be a change to this.  They are already taping Bobby in the opening credits, but a credible source from Soap Opera Digest, just said that Joshua was not a Bobby recast.  Guess we'll just have to stay tuned to find out.  (Contributed by SS)

April 4, 2005

Linda Dano (ex-Felicia Another world; ex-Rae of OLTL and soon to be seen on Guiding Light) tells Buzz that despite many published reports that she will be hosting the red carpet for Soapnet on Emmy night, it will not happen. "I had to back down," she revealed in an exclusive interview with Buzz. "But possibly I may do an after the Emmy party like who was wearing what,"Dano said. And when it comes to fashion, who would know more than Dano, a true fashion expert. Nothing concrete yet, but stay tuned! (Contributed by MEW)

In AMC Buzz, it looks like the show may be losing another of it's young femme fatales.  A mere few weeks ago, AMC lost both Eden Riegel (Bianca) and Elizabeth Hendrickson (Maggie).  This summer, another young lady's contract is up and word around the set is she is not looking to renew, although she is keeping all options open at this point, including signing again with AMC.  However, she already has a few other things in the fire, and may want to pursue them. Time will tell. Oh yea, we won't keep you in too much suspense. The femme in question is Rebecca Budig who plays Greenlee. (Contributed by LMS)

Rumor has it that Passions is interested in an Aussie hunk who starred for five years on the Australian soap, Neighbours.  They recently brought him stateside to audition.  We hear he is drop dead gorgeous.  Will he join the cast? If so, whose lives will his character impact? Stay tuned. (Contributed by LMS)

April 1, 2005  -- "And this ain't no April Fools"

AMC just cast a new Amanda Dillon. Her audition script sounds like the one they had out for “Sydney Fox” in that she’s after JR and is a bad girl. Chrishelle Stause got the role. Her first airdate is May 4th. But here's the thing. If a teenaged Amanda Dillon's on her way back to Pine Valley, can her dad Trevor and/or mom Janet be far behind?  At the Anniversary Party celebrating AMC's 35th Anniversary, James Kiberd, who last played Trevor Dillon, is seen smoozing with LaLucci and other members of the cast. Could talks to bring him back have begun then?  Time will tell. (Contributed by SS and LMS)

In more AMC Buzz, they’re also casting a new hunk -- character name:  Joshua Madden (approximately 28), who is a young lion businessman. His father was a doctor and he went to med school but isn’t interested in investing the time (and lack of income) in doing an internship. He likes things to come fast and easy. And of course, he’s got his heart set on Kendall. But, I’ve heard that he’s not going to necessarily end up with her. Actors auditioning for the role will be testing with Kendall, however.

Congrats to One life to Live. The soap was honored by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) with the Outstanding Daytime Drama Award at the 16th annual GLAAD Media Awards held in New York City on March 28, 2005.

The show was first honored in 1993 for its homophobia storyline, which captured national headlines when it introduced the character of gay teen, Billy Douglas (played by then unknown Ryan Phillippe), and culminated with the emotional display of the Names Project AIDS Memorial Quilt.

"We are honored to receive this award from the GLAAD organization and would like to thank them for their continuing recognition of the medium," says Frank Valentini, the show's executive producer. "OLTL has always been a show at the forefront of exploring social issues. It's an extremely important part of our storytelling and will continue to be, as we tell thought-provoking stories."

Emmy Award-winning One Life to Live, created by Agnes Nixon, was launched July 15, 1968. Frank Valentini executive-produces. Dena Higley is headwriter. The popular drama consistently ranks among the top five in the key demographic of Women 18-49.

In DOOL Buzz, villian Sami Brady to be played by actor Dan Wells while star Alison Sweeney takes maternity leave.  When Alison Sweeney, who has played 'Sami Brady' for 12 years on NBC's "Day of our Lives," announced her pregnancy last June, fans began to wonder how the show would handle her maternity leave. On February 28, 2005 they found out that head writer James E. Reilly had created Sami's best scheme yet.

Instead of recasting the role while Sweeney is on maternity leave from the show, actor Dan Wells will play 'Sami' in disguise, aka 'Stan.' The costume will help 'Sami' gather information to blackmail her enemies as she seeks her revenge. Through the magic of pre-taping and voiceovers, Sweeney will remain on the canvas throughout her maternity leave. In some scenes the illusion of the disguise is kept by dubbing over Wells' lines with Sweeney's voice.

Sweeney, married to California Highway Patrol officer David Sanov, gave birth to her first child, Benjamin Edward, on Friday, February 25.  Days celebrates its 40th Anniversary in November 2005. (Contributed by LMS)
