Hey, As the World Turns fans -- don't miss this Friday's episode. Dec. 21 is a special Christmas episode that brings a turn-of-the-20th-century dollhouse to life and depicts the residents of Oakdale in situations that might or might not be reminiscent of their own.

Hey, As the World Turns fans -- don't miss this Friday's episode. Dec. 21 is a special Christmas episode that brings a turn-of-the-20th-century dollhouse to life and depicts the residents of Oakdale in situations that might or might not be reminiscent of their own.
Just as one would expect, Susan Lucci is super tiny in person, but the moment she begins to speak, her personality fills the room. I had the chance to catch up with Ms. Lucci at ABC’s Disney/MGM Super Soap Weekend in Orlando, Fla., last month. If you’ve never been or don’t know what it is, let me explain. It’s the mack-daddy of all meet-and-greets. All the hottest stars from the ABC soaps spend the weekend in sunny Central Florida for the main purpose of meeting, mingling with and entertaining their fans.
I guess I should say, their LEGIONS of fans. The numbers for any given day are in the tens of thousands, and they are all at MGM for one purpose — the chance to see their favorite soap star up close and in the flesh.
“I’m sure that the fans have a better answer. I would love to hear what they have to say, because I really don’t know. Except that she is really unpredictable. And so there are things that she says that people want to say or do in their real life. Or they didn’t think of it until later, or didn’t have the nerve to try. Those kinds of things, I think, have been interesting to the audience.
Susan replies: “Erica has done certainly a lot! I am sure that there are more fabulous things to do, and the writers will think of them. And I know Agnes Nixon (creator of ‘AMC’) is still very involved and hands-on — not in the daily production, but she’s certainly involved in the creativity. She created Erica Kane, so I am so happy that she’s there, and I’m sure her wheels are spinning.”
(from imdb.com) The star of the TV movie adaptation of hit 1980s series Knight Rider has been injured on the set. Actor Justin Bruening is recovering after getting hurt in a fight scene on Friday. Bruening injured his knee so badly he was hospitalized.

As of this writing it hasn't been confirmed by any of the top brass at Passions, but two of the shows actresses have confirmed on their Web sites that DirecTV has given Passions the ax. According to Liza Huber, who plays Gwen: "Yes, it is true that Passions will finish taping at the end of March 2008. We will start airing three days a week on DirecTV, which should last through summer 2008. It has been a wonderful ride (although Gwen has completely lost her mind!), and I want to thank all of you for your amazing support for Passions through the years!"

I'm always amazed when one of soaps' best actors leaves daytime and doesn't immediately score the great part he or she deserves. Why doesn't the rest of Hollywood see what we see? That's where the element of luck comes in. If it were all based on talent, Tony Geary (Luke, General Hospital) would be tripping over his Oscars on the way out the door each day.
Two young stars with bright futures outside of soaps are coming back, although for how long isn't known. Both may have already nabbed their roles of a lifetime on their respective soaps, but let's hope not. The rest of the world needs to see what they are capable of -- but what are the chances of another part like Jonathan Randall for Tom Pelphrey, or another Carly Corinthos for Sarah J. Brown? I don't want to see Pelphrey or Brown yucking it up on some poorly written sitcom or TV movie of the week.
Tuesday, December 04, 2007
One sure way to tell when a soap character is being brought back is if he's suddenly mentioned by another character out of the blue. Margo Hughes (Ellen Dolan) recently hinted to husband Tom (Scott Holmes) that son Casey might be paroled in time for Christmas.

One Life to Live alumnus Nathan Fillion had some excellent advice for Ellen on The Three Faces of Soap Acting. It takes only 1 minute to watch, and it is worth every second (all 60 of 'em), trust me. (Thanks for the heads-up, Elly!)

The ladies of the ABC soaps perform their own version of Chicago's "Cell Block Tango." With Bobbie Eakes, Bree Williamson, Kristen Alderson, Tika Sumpter and Melissa Claire Egan. This performance was from Disney MGM's Super Soap Weekend Street Jam on Saturday, November 10.

In another casting upheaval at Days of Our Lives, Marcus Patrick, who portrayed Jett Carver, has been let go. His last day was yesterday. Rumors are swirling that he was fired because he posed for racy pics in Playgirl magazine. A Days rep adamantly denies those rumors, stating that the ousting is story-line dictated.
As expected, Nathaniel Marston (left, with Trevor St. John as Todd), Michael McBain of One Life to Live, has been let go. The firing following the bizarre incident of last month where he went on what seemed like "a drugged-out rampage" according to witnesses, injuring innocent bystanders in NYC.

I haven't had time to sort through and touch-up all my pictures from Super Soap Weekend yet, but, in honor of Cameron and Edyta's (premature, in my opinion) departure from Dancing With the Stars, I wanted to post this video of their performance this past Saturday night.
Cameron Mathison has made the soap world proud. He made it to the top 5 dancers on Dancing With the Stars, before being voted off last night. When you consider all he's been doing since he started the show, it's amazing he's still awake, let alone dancing up a storm.

First she was poisoned by pancakes, now (I'm assuming) she's going back into a coma? However the writers decide to conclude Rosanna's storyline on As the World Turns, Cady McClain is making an early exit, as explained on her blog: http://www.cadymcclain.com/blog/:
Thanks for all your support during my brief return! Who knows where I shall land next. It’s gonna be an interesting 2008!
Love and gratitude always…
THIS IS CINDY NOW:
OK, so this is weird that Dana mentions this, because it made me remember something that happened at Super Soap Weekend that I did not think anything of at the time. During the AMC talk show, they were all talking, having fun, and I can't remember the context of it, but someone mentioned Cady McClain out of the blue. It got quiet for a moment, and then someone changed the subject really fast. Could one of the actors almost have slipped up and mentioned that Cady was coming back to AMC? Did I happen to hear a "kinda" spoiler? I hope so! If she does come back to AMC soon, remember, you heard it HERE first!

Quick post, checking in from ABC's Super Soap Weekend at Disney MGM Studios. Here's a shot taken after my interview with Kassie DePaiva (Blair, OLTL). She is one of the sweetest women I have ever met. I heart Kassie! BTW, I am 5'8", so you can see, she is a tall one!

General Hospital star Kirsten Storms had her own daytime drama play out in an L.A. courtroom today as her attorney, on her behalf, pleaded no contest to drunk driving charges.
The judge sentenced Kirsten to three years probation and ordered her to attend 12 AA meetings. That must start immediately, and she must attend two meetings per week. Storms' license was also suspended for six months, and she must pay a $390 fine.
If she fails to comply with these terms, she must serve 13 days in County Jail.
Storms was arrested in September after a CHP officer noticed a lit cigarette being thrown from her blue Mercedes. She was pulled over and the officer noticed an odor of booze in the car. After failing field sobriety tests, the actress was booked on DUI charges.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – October 30, 2007 – This past Saturday, cast and crew members from NBC's popular daytime drama Days of our Lives helped beautify the North Hollywood Park (11455 Magnolia Blvd., North Hollywood, CA) at the first "Days of our Lives Adopt-a-Park" event in support of NBC Universal's "Green is Universal" campaign.
Throughout the day approximately 40 people attended the event including Days cast members Deidre Hall, Alison Sweeney, Stephen Nichols, James Scott, Nadia Bjorlin, Brandon Beemer, Darin Brooks, Blake Berris, Matthew Florida, Kristen Renton and their family and friends.
Wearing green T-shirts with the "Green Is Universal" logo the cast and crew planted approximately 15 trees, cleaned up several flowerbeds, picked up trash, and raked leaves.
"It was a pleasure working with the cast of Days of our Lives this weekend," said Tom Leveque, North Hollywood Park Maintenance Supervisor, Department of Recreation & Park, City of Los Angeles, "The staff and I really appreciated all of their hard work in helping to beautify the park and we look forward to their next visit."
Days of our Lives hopes that this event will encourage their fans to get involved in beautifying their own local communities, and suggests fans to contact their local parks’ department to find out about similar programs.
"Planting a tree is a gift we give to our children, our town, and our planet. If feels good on every level, and I highly recommend it!" said Deidre Hall.
Here are some pics from the event (courtesy NBC and Days of Our Lives):
Now that the initial disaster has passed (although many Genoa City residents will be dealing with the after-effects for quite some time to come), did the week-long catastrophe live up to all the hoopla?
For me, I say "YES!" I was very happy with how the disaster was handled. I like that each day featured a new set of characters to rescue, without a whole lot of dragging out and such. Everyone did such a great job "acting injured and scared."
Plus, as Peter Bergman told me many people told him during filming: I loved seeing Jack Abbott all filthy dirty! (see pic, courtesy CBS.com) You don't see that happen too often!
