Tina Sloan Celebrates 25 Years on GL

Tina Sloan (Lillian Raines) is celebrating her 25th anniversary with Guiding Light this month. Tina joined the show in 1983.

Beth Chamberlin, who has played her daughter, Beth, since 1989, had this to say about Tina: “To say that Tina is the best TV mom anyone could ask for, doesn't begin to touch just how much she has meant to me over the years. She has protected me, mentored me, inspired me and prodded me (I occasionally need this). By her example, she has taught me to be a better actress, friend, and co-worker. She is gracious, elegant and vivacious. I consider it one of the great good fortunes of my life to have been put into her beautiful orbit.”

SOAPnet's MVP: The Secret Lives of Hockey Wives

SOAPnet is adding more original series to its slate and will premiere MVP: The Secret Lives of Hockey Wives (working title) on Thursday, June 19.

B&B's Hunter Tylo Raises Awareness About Epilepsy

Many of you remember the tragic death of Hunter Tylo's (Taylor, The Bold and the Beautiful) son Mickey last October. An epileptic, he drowned after suffering a seizure and falling into the family's pool. He would have celebrated his 20th birthday this past April 24th.

Tylo has joined forces with the newly organized American Epilepsy Outreach Foundation (AEOF) to raise awareness about this neurological disorder that affects more than 3 million people in the United States.

Tylo partnered with the AEOF in memory of her son Mickey. Through its website, the AEOF offers information on detecting and treating seizure disorders, first-aid information for someone experiencing a seizure, links to a variety of related resources and an outlet to share personal stories. The organization also distributes first-aid information to schools and other public venues.

Tylo and the founders of AEOF hope to raise $20,000 this month to help support its programs. To make a donation, please visit
