Major Characters Return to “B&B” and “General Hospital” Sean Kanan is bringing his character, Deacon, back to “The Bold & the Beautiful.” Deacon was last seen in prison on “The Young & the Restless”, where he was arrested for blackmailing Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) about killing Diane. Deacon has far more to do in his […]
Wednesday, “Days of Our Lives” Will (Cbandler Massey) finally came out of the closet, telling his supportive grandmother, Marlena (Deidre Hall) that he is gay. (If you missed it, watch the clip above.)
Reports of Robin Scorpio’s Death Are Greatly Exaggerated You can’t keep a Scorpio down. The big soap plot news this week is that “General Hospital’s” Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) is alive and on the way to being well. The writers gave themselves an out with Robin’s body being burned beyond recognition. Monday’s episode ended with […]
[iframe http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/tv/General-Hospital/97378/2214002180/Thu%2C-Mar-22%2C-2012/embed 580 476] Two soaps reboot themselves. One goes from so unwatchable that longtime fans were grumbling that it SHOULD have been canceled instead of “All My Children,” and “One Life to Live” to must watch and live Tweet in the space of a month, thanks to the return of veteran stars, and the […]
I was skeptical that “Days of Our Lives” would allow its gay characters Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny (Freddie Smith) to have a love life that was comparable to those of the straight characters.
The January 13th finale of “One Life To Live” was watched by 3,840,000 people, for a strong 2.7 Household rating. For comparison, that is more than watched the final episodes of “All My Children,” (3,475,000) “As The World Turns,” (2.846,000) or “Guiding Light” (2,975,000).
Robert Scorpio is headed back to “General Hospital.” Tristan Rogers will be returning to the soap in February where he will reunite with Finola Hughes, who is also reprising her role of Anna Devane.
“Days of Our Lives” Will (Chandler Massey) is having a rotten winter.

On January twelfth, he finds himself drawn to a handsome older man played by “Queer Eye For the Straight […]

The day before Thanksgiving brought the news that Prospect Park was abandoning plans to continue “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” online. Would the ultimate news dump day, the last weekday before a three-day Christmas weekend, bring something equally terrible? Fortunately the answer […]
Merry Chrismakwanzukkah. It’s the time of the year when soap characters visit Christmas tree lots, have holiday themed weddings that would doom them to a lifetime of combined anniversary/Christmas presents if their marriages lasted, and give each other elaborate, expensive gifts. If I were Santa Claus, these are the gifts that I would give each […]
