      Emmy Winner Young Out as GH's Lucky
      Posted Sunday, December 08, 2002 10:43:04 PM

      Though it had been rumored for several weeks, ABC has now confirmed
      reports that Emmy winner Jacob Young (Lucky Spencer) is leaving
      General Hospital. A spokesperson for the show states that the role
      will be recast.

      Young joined the cast of General Hospital in February 2000, fresh
      from an Emmy-nominated run as Rick Forrester on CBS's The Bold and the
      Beautiful. The then-newcomer had the unenviable task of following the
      Emmy-winning - and fan favorite - Jonathan Jackson in the role. Young,
      however, made the part his own and won over the fans. In May 2002,
      Young was awarded the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actor.

      In addition to his work on General Hospital, Young has been actively
      pursuing a career in music. Young's self-titled debut album hit stores
      in September 2001. Young has also expressed an interest in a career in
      feature films.

      Young's contract with General Hospital runs through January 2003. If
      Young finishes out his contract he will air through most of the month
      of February. However, show execs are actively seeking a recast for the
      role of Lucky Spencer. If a recast is found before the expiration of
      Young's contract, Young could conceivably exit the show sooner.

      GL Names Ellen Weston as Head Writer
      Posted Wednesday, December 04, 2002 8:47:35 PM

      Ellen Weston has been named the new head writer of Guiding Light.

      "I am delighted to have Ellen lead our already strong writing team.
      Ellen's strong creative sensibilities, combined with her knack for
      telling powerful stories, will provide viewers with exciting drama and
      character developments," praised Mary Alice Dwyer-Dobbin, executive in
      charge of production for Procter & Gamble Productions.

      Weston's credits included previous experience in daytime television.
      She served as a writer for Capitol, ironically under the guidance of
      executive producer John Conboy, who was named Guiding Light's new
      executive producer earlier this week. Weston has also appeared in
      front of the cameras, appearing as Robin Lang on Guiding Light from
      1963 to 1964.

      Outside of the soap opera genre, Weston has writing and production
      credits on And The Beat Goes On: The Sonny and Cher Story, See Jane
      Run, The Disappearance of Vonnie and the Broadway musical, Josephine.

      The search for a new head writer began last month when Millie Taggart
      announced that she'd be leaving her position as head writer for
      personal reasons. Prior to that, Lloyd "Lucky" Gold was removed as
      head writer in September and As The World Turns co-head writer Carolyn
      Culliton was brought on board to oversee head writing responsibilities
      with Taggart. Gold remains on as an associate writer and Culliton will
      continue as co-head writer.

      Weston's role as head writer takes effect on January 6th, 2003.


      Former GL Star To Make AMC Appearance
      Posted Sunday, December 01, 2002 9:48:11 PM

      Bradley Cole (ex Richard Winslow, Guiding Light) will make a guest
      appearance on All My Children in January. Cole will play Jordan
      Roberts, a friend of Erica Kane.

      Cole opted to leave his role as Richard Winslow on CBS's Guiding
      Light in July. While Cole was quite popular among fans of the show,
      the actor decided that he wanted to leave daytime to pursue other
      projects, including a return to the stage. Any chance of Cole
      returning to his role on Guiding Light was wiped away when the writers
      killed off the character and had the character's heart donated to
      another lead character.

      Cole apparently beat out a former Days of Our Lives star for the
      two-day AMC appearance. Roark Critchlow (ex Mike Horton, Days of Our
      Lives) told fans on his official web site that they might soon have
      reason to tune into All My Children. However, Critchlow later revealed
      that the AMC project fell through.

      Cole's stint on AMC is scheduled to last just two days and there is no
      word on whether or not the role could become more regular. Mark Pinter
      (ex Roger Smythe) similarly signed on in 2001 to portray Roger Smythe,
      Greenlee's father. Fan reaction to Pinter's work was so positive that
      show execs offered a contract to the actor.

      Cole's appearances are scheduled for January 2nd and 3rd.

      Luckinbill Gets Y&R Contract
      Posted Thursday, November 14, 2002 4:14:44 PM

      Hard work does pay off. Two years after joining the cast of The Young
      and the Restless in the recurring role of JT Hellstrom, Thad
      Luckinbill has been put on contract.

      When he joined the cast of the top-rated soap in November 2000,
      Luckinbill's time in Genoa City was designed to last only a short
      time. However, the writers obviously saw a need for his character and
      execs and fans alike enjoyed his work.

      The bump up to contract status comes as Luckinbill has found
      additional success outside of daytime. The actor recently wrapped up
      work on an episode of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and is schedule to
      begin filming a part in the feature film Just Married.

      A show spokesperson declined comment, explaining that it is not
      network policy to comment on contracts.

      WATERFRONT BRAVES THE WAVES
      It's no mystery where Scott Reeves (ex-Ryan, Y&R) spent his
      Thanksgiving weekend, and it wasn't at the mall. Reeves was on the
      East Coast to shoot the first episode of Waterfront, the independent
      TV series created by Gregori J. Martin and executive produced and
      directed by Lisa Brown (ex-Iva, ATWT). Reeves plays Lee Nelson, a
      married man in a not-so-happy marriage. "[His wife] isn't very
      supportive, and he's struggling with his own desires," Reeves
      explains. Fans who made it to Waterfront's kick-off party in Newark,
      N.J., were treated to a sample of Reeves musical styling from his
      self-titled album. "It's available on my website, ScottReeves.com," he
      declares. The compilation of ballads, quieter tunes and a little rock
      and roll features songs written by Reeves, who gets his inspiration
      close to home. "My wife, my kids, whatever happens to be my current
      situation at the time is what I write about," he explains, "something
      that is honest and true."

      Also on hand for the night's festivities were Waterfront cast members
      Anthony Herrera (James, ATWT), Abagail Wathen (ex-older Colby, AMC),
      Kurt McKinney (ex-Matt, GL) and Latina soap siren Lupita Ferrer.
      Michael Saucedo (ex-Juan, GH) and his Waterfront co-star Jon Huertas
      were joined on stage with their buddy Paul Duncan. The trio serenaded
      the crowd with three-part harmony, even though they don't have a band
      name. When offered the suggestion of JMP, in respect to their first
      initials, Saucedo joked, "That could work, if it was MPJ..."

      Guiding Light's Gavin Houston (Remy) won the night's award for most
      thorough explanation of his character's story thread. "I play
      Terrence, Tania's brother, and a troublemaker. He wants Kenny to be
      with his sister Tania because Kenny works in a recording studio and
      Terrence looks up to him. Tania is with Darryl, whom she's supposed to
      marry. She shares a secret with Terrence, who is a big mouth, and he
      tells Kenny." Joking over the only similarity between his Waterfront
      and GL characters, Houston laments. "I have no love. I'm hoping to get
      some in the next episode."

        kiss to begin with.
        Bridget asks Ridge is he's trying to stop this wedding, but Ridge
        assures her he loves Brooke -- but when he can't answer how he feels
        about Bridget, she tells him he has to focus on Brooke now and even
        turn to her now that Brooke knows about Massimo.
        Just then, Brooke walks in and overhears that Bridget knows, and
        Brooke is actually glad Bridget was there for Ridge -- and as Brooke
        assures Bridget that even if she's not related to Ridge, she'll still
        be part of his life, Ridge recalls Mass telling him to act on his
        feelings.
        As Massimo says he will do anything to keep his son from Brooke, he
        thinks Stephanie is becoming like Brooke by lying over and over to
        keep her secret.
        Stephanie scolds Mass, saying he's just as bad by pushing a brother
        and sister, even if not by blood, together, and she warns him not to
        do anything... but once she leaves, Mass says he'll do as he pleases.
        Mass then plans a surprise engagement party for Brooke and Ridge at
        his penthouse for family only, a party which he thinks will start

        ANDREWS ON ATWT
        On the heels of casting Emmy-winning One Life to Live alum Roger
        Howarth (ex-Todd), As the World Turns has snatched another ABC
        veteran player, General Hospital's Réal Andrews (Taggert). He'll join
        the Oakdale gang this June. "I had given my agent pretty strict rules
        that I didn't want to go back to daytime for a while," Andrews tells
        TV Guide Online. "When I learned it was As the World Turns, I said
        that's one show I'll go back for. It's one of my favorites."

        Andrews will play forensic pathologist Walker Daniels, a role he's
        been brushing up on with prime time's most popular series. "My wife
        and I watch CSI, Crossing Jordan and forensics reports on TV all the
        time," he exclaims. "In fact, my [ATWT] character is based on the CSI
        guys, which is great because I'm such a huge fan."

        Making a fast move across country has been the biggest challenge for
        the ecstatic actor. "I have a six month pregnant wife. Do I need to
        say more?" he chuckles. "The hormone thing kicked in... I just throw
        my hands up and say, 'Whatever you need, honey, just don't hurt me!'"
        But Andrews knows it's all for the best. "As long as I'm with my
        family, I'm on a good show, and I can go fishing, I'm happy," he
        declares.

        GH offers their best wishes for the actor and his continued success.
        His last airdate is May 8.

        a stubborn streak...

        Dusty's past, on April 30... Stewart Steinberg plays Mr. Crumly, an

        plays a baseball scout on May 1.


        Most people on the East Coast are clamoring for warmer weather, but
        As the World Turns's Colleen Zenk Pinter (Barbara) only wanted winter
        white over her Easter holiday. "We wanted to go skiing," she tells TV
        Guide Online. "My husband Mark [Pinter (ex-Roger, AMC)] had been down
        in Washington D.C. for two months. He didn't get a chance to ski with
        our kids, Georgia and Morgan." Finding a mountain of snow, even this
        season, proved a bit of a challenge for Pinter. "I spent a lot of
        time on the phone seeing where there was good snow," she
        shares. "Lake Placid had no snow, and northern Vermont had no good
        snow — I even called up to Quebec, Canada." Ever determined, Pinter
        finally located a powdery paradise in southern Vermont, which put a
        smile on her 13-year-old son's face. "Morgan's taken up snowboarding,
        and he's really quite good at it. Mark and I are mighty fine skiers;
        we don't fall down," she chuckles. "And Georgia's become a good
        intermediate skier." Having a dash of sunny skies only made the trip
        more of a treat. "It was a chance to ski in bathing suits, get a tan,
        and look like we've been to Florida, all healthy," Pinter
        exclaims, "with our fire at night, our snow in the day, and a couple
        of beers in the sun."

          Daytime stars ascend to the winner's circle on a special soap-themed

          but they weren't nervous," says Osmond of his daytime
          contestants. "They were good receivers because they listen." A
          financial plea helped Emmy nominee Kyle Lowder (Brady, Days) fight
          for a spot in the final round. "My first partner said, 'I hope I can
          win some money to pay off my credit cards and get out of debt,'" he
          shares. "Right off the bat, that was my motivation." The show also

          MY POV: This year's Daytime Emmy contenders are fierce! There is an
          incredible wealth of talent represented this year's competition. With
          coveted Emmy nominations under their belt, the first earned under the
          Academy's new prenom process, they are already winners. But just like
          American Idol, only one can be left standing. Here are my picks on
          who's taking home that shiny gold statuette on May 16.

          Outstanding Lead Actor: Doug Davidson (Paul, Y&R). An interesting mix
          of rage leading up to his aggressive sexual encounter with Christine,
          followed by an honest expression of remorse to his best pal Andy,
          could sway the judges in Davidson's favor.

          Outstanding Lead Actress: Susan Flannery (Stephanie, B&B). Last
          year's Emmy winner gives a repeat knockout performance as she
          uncovers the true paternity of Brooke's baby. From disbelief and
          disgust to delivering Brooke her fate, Flannery serves up a flawless
          tour-de-force performance.

          Outstanding Supporting Actor: Benjamin Hendrickson (Hal, ATWT). It's
          a quiet, moving moment as Hal admits he needs more psychiatric
          counseling, coupled with a light-hearted marriage proposal to Emily
          that should help Hendrickson grab the gold.

          Outstanding Supporting Actress: Robin Christopher (Skye, GH). She
          cries, dries her eyes, falls off the wagon and seeks revenge.
          Christopher tosses off a frenetic stream of emotions as she begs Jax
          for a second chance, and as she drunkenly confronts his lover Brenda
          and vows to ruin her life.

          Outstanding Younger Actor: Chad Brannon (Zander, GH). A star-in-the
          making, Brannon sparks a fiery streak in a confrontation with Carly,
          then takes on the formidable Maurice Benard (Sonny) with the ease of
          a pro.

          Outstanding Younger Actress: Jennifer Finnigan (Bridget, B&B).
          Finnigan deftly conveys the pain Bridget has suffered through the
          sins of her mother, and tosses off seething anger as she condemns her.

          Outstanding Show: Port Charles. Vampires, slayers, and siblings at
          the altar, oh my! With an engaging blend of gothic fantasy and real
          human emotions, PC should sink its teeth into Emmy's top award.

          As the World Turns: Molly agrees to help Brackett get Dusty. Carly
          discovers what Jack has been doing to keep her out of harms way.
          Sierra and Lucy seek a truce between Craig and Aaron. Paul makes
          plans to leave. Craig and Jack have a confrontation. Rosanna agrees
          to participate in the fashion show. Bonnie finds out that Marshall is
          practicing law again. Barbara is furious when she arrives at the

            Guiding Light: Mark Edgar Stephens plays Boris the hairdresser on
            June 10... Beginning June 10, Geoffrey Arend is Gavin, Alexandra's
            creepy date... Steven Hauck plays the manager of the country club on
            June 11.

            ODDS AND ENDS
            Paul Walker (ex-Brandon, Y&R) revs up the speedometer one more time
            in the high octane action feature 2 Fast 2 Furious. Saundra Santiago
            (ex-Carmen, GL) lets loose her inner fashionista in the satirical
            indie flick Garmento.

            Heather Tom (Victoria, Y&R) doesn't just play an entrepreneur on TV.
            Tom is wearing the hats of producer, performer and even painter to
            stage Talking With..., two nights of monologues and music on June 13
            and 14 at the Court Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif. Tom's search for
            an audition piece actually inspired her to put together the benefit
            performance. "I was revisiting one of the pieces, and I thought, 'Why
            not do this,' because I had been searching for something to do for
            Planned Parenthood," she shares. "Daytime has an overwhelming amount
            of talent out there, so I just put out letters to see if people would
            be interested. I didn't know what type of response I'd get." A
            thunderous one, it turns out. Talking With... features top daytime
            talent from the West Coast, including Tom's castmates Michelle
            Stafford (Phyllis), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) and Tonya Lee
            Williams (Olivia); General Hospital's Jackie Zeman (Bobbie); Days of
            Our Lives's Arianne Zucker (Nicole) and The Bold and the Beautiful's
            Darlene Conley (Sally), just to name a few.
            The monologues are tied together by a cellist's solo, and by their
            shared theme. "They're about survival and taking pride and glory in
            being a woman and being alive," Tom explains. "They're really meaty
            pieces you can sink your teeth into." For the moment, Tom's sinking
            her teeth into the behind-the-scenes production schedule. "It's
            coming together. We're painting the sets and running around and
            grabbing props," she declares. "But for me, that's part of the fun."

            Take Two: Katherine Kelly Lang




            By Linda Susman

            CBS

            Although The Bold and the Beautiful's Brooke Logan loves her children
            deeply, she's hardly a candidate for mother-of-the-year.
            Interestingly, Katherine Kelly Lang is finding that playing mom to
            Bridget, Rick and Hope is helping prepare her for the challenges of
            raising her real-life kids: sons Jeremy (ex-Eric Forrester, Jr.,
            B&B), 12 and Julian, 10; 6-year-old daughter Zoe and stepdaughter
            Danyelle, who is 12.

            SOAP OPERA WEEKLY: Do you bring any of your relationship with your
            real children to the way Brooke tries to relate to hers?
            KATHERINE KELLY LANG: No, because of the age difference. But I look
            at them, my TV kids, and I think, "My gosh, is this how you relate to
            them when they're older? Is this how it's going to be?"
            WEEKLY: A little tryout.
            KKL: Yeah. (laughs) It's kind of warming me up for the future.


            WEEKLY: As a person and as a mom, what are the good and the bad
            traits you've passed on to your own kids?
            KKL (laughs): Well, you never want to admit the bad. (laughs) I think
            I blocked all the bad out of my mind. But the good traits, well,
            hopefully. I instill good morals in their everyday life. They seem to
            understand what is good and what is right and wrong. I don't really
            like saying "right and wrong" because I don't know if I believe in
            that, but good and bad I think is more important. How you should
            treat people, how you should treat yourself, what it means to be
            responsible, independent, things like that. And that is something you
            have to work with the kids on every single day, especially my 12-year-
            old. He's at an age where you really need to remind him which way,
            because then they get kind of strung out with their peers, or they
            get confused. And then, "Oh, I forgot my backpack," or "I forgot my
            project for this class," and "Mom, will you bring it to me?" "No, you
            are almost 13 years old. You need to be responsible and you need to
            be doing these things for yourself now." So instead of just doing
            everything for them, which you tend to do at a younger age, you have
            to start letting them go and learn and be responsible for themselves.

            WEEKLY: Do you see them following in your acting footsteps?
            KKL: Well, my daughter, she's like, "I want to do theater,' and she's
            only 5. "Theater, mom, I want to do theater." (laughs) And she sings
            amazing. I don't even know the songs that she sings to herself half
            the time, and I don't know how she understands the words in the
            lyrics. I'm like, "What are you singing now?" "You know, that girl
            with pink hair." You know, Pink. (laughs) And she knows Pink's song
            forward and backwards and sings it great.
            Jeremy has already done school plays and has gone to the Lee
            Strasberg Institute for acting and done a summer session there and
            ended up doing two parts in the same play back to back. And he does
            his little home video movies and makes up his own commercials. He's
            very talented and very excited about doing the directing/acting
            thing. My stepdaughter is doing musicals and stuff at school. Julian -
            - no. He doesn't want to do anything -- but he will be an actor in
            Jeremy's movies (laughs). So Jeremy gets the camera and goes, "Come
            on, Julian. You gotta do this for me." Julian is like his guinea pig.

            WEEKLY: What kind of movies does he do?
            KKL: He does action, thriller -- he gets the ketchup out and the guy
            falls and the ketchup bursts and it looks like he broke his shoulder
            (laughs). And then they continue on for a little adventure. He also
            does commercials, and shorts for different products, and they're
            always funny. He's very funny. A comedian.

            WEEKLY: If any of the kids decide to make show business their career,
            would that make you happy or worried?
            KKL: I know how frustrating and difficult it can be, and I've been
            lucky. I was doing the runaround and TV shows here and there and a
            movie here and there until I got this show. But this show is really
            something that has enabled me to have a base and a foundation and
            learn even more, and to set up a life for myself. It's hard for
            people out there -- they can even be talented but they'll never go
            anywhere, they'll never get anything. It's a lot about timing, a lot
            about luck, it's a lot about being in the right place at the right
            time. And when you do have that opportunity, it's the way you run
            with it.So as far as my kids, I find it exciting because that's what
            I do, and I like seeing my kids grow up being interested in and doing
            what I'm doing. But I also worry about it because it's not easy.

                Daytime Emmy winner for his portrayal of ONE LIFE TO LIVE villain
                Todd Manning, will be playing Paul Ryan when he makes his CBS soap
                debut on Monday, July 7.
                "Roger is an exciting addition to our cast," says ATWT executive
                producer Chris Goutman. "[He] brings an intensity to the character
                that will undoubtedly put fear in those closest to Paul, and leave
                the fans wanting more."
                Adds Mary Alice Dwyer-Dobbin, executive in charge of production for
                Procter & Gamble Productions, "Roger was on the top of everyone's
                wish list" when it came to recasting the role last played by Scott
                Holroyd. "I was first struck by his incredible talent when, as
                executive vice president of ABC Daytime, I was part of the team
                responsible for bringing Roger to ABC. I couldn't be happier to have
                him join the talented cast of ATWT."

                  is a pretty big deal."

                  Tony claims that he and Bedingfield are longtime friends, but what
                  prompted the connection between the 23-year-old artist and the town's
                  resident mafia family? "Tony put a gun to my head and told me I would
                  perform or else," Bedingfield chuckles over his fictional
                  introduction.

                  While the UK native isn't a soap watcher by nature, his viewing
                  habits may change, thanks in part to Lindsey McKeon (Marah). "I kind
                  of fancy her," Bedingfield gushes of the leggy blonde actress. Better
                  not let Tony know, or he could find himself singing with the fishes.

                  couple are on the way off the canvas. Nothing could be farther from
                  the truth. "Aaron and Lucy are still around," assures a show
                  spokesperson, who hints that Rosanna and Craig will crash a private
                  moment between the young lovebirds. "You'll be seeing a lot of them

                  How is Tracy Melchior, a Californian gal who just joined One Life to
                  Live as Kelly Cramer, handling a new job on the East Coast? "We're
                  commuting," she explained during OLTL's on-set celebration for its
                  35th anniversary on June 26. "This is my second week and now it's
                  fine. Ask me in four years." Melchior is keeping her toddler Kyle in
                  tow. "On my longer work weeks he'll come with me, on the shorter ones
                  he'll stay home. My husband will stack up days so he can come out for
                  visits as well." At the moment, home is a hotel, but Melchior's
                  hoping to find something a little more permanent. "It would be nice
                  not to pack everything every time I come to New York and deal with
                  wrinkled clothes every day. I need a place to hang my hat," she
                  agonized. "But everyone on the cast has been great. Robin [Strasser
                  (Dorian)] is trying to help me find a place, and Kassie [DePaiva
                  (Blair)] is helping me find a nanny out here. They've all been really
                  helpful."

                  Better not mess with the on-screen family of Guiding Light's Tina
                  Sloan. After playing diligent mother Lillian Raines for 20 years,
                  she's developed some true-blue maternal instincts. "Beth Chamberlin
                  (Beth) has been my daughter for 15 years on the show," she declared
                  as GL celebrated its 51st anniversary June 30 on the company set. "If
                  someone dared to say anything about her, I think I'd kill them."
                  Raines also takes on her fictional former son-in-law Grant Aleksander
                  (Phillip) like only family can. "We've been on the show so long
                  together, I can tell him things no one else can," she chuckled. "I'll
                  tell him, 'Don't do that,' and he responds to me like a mother."
                  Lillian's granddaughter Lizzie has changed over the years, "She's
                  grown from 6 to 17 so quickly!" she exclaimed, but Sloan admitted the
                  attachment still deepens with every story twist. "I have such ties to
                  these people," she shared. "I feel like they are my own children."

                    Rumors are also flying that Crystal Chappell(Olivia) is leaving
                    Guiding Light. "I just read on the Internet that I am leaving,"
                    laughs Chappell. "You never know. I don't have a love interest on the
                    show with this new storyline. If it happens I'll be fine." Chappell
                    probably doesn't have to worry. Insiders at Guiding Light say the
                    rumor is not true. In fact, Chappell has a huge story coming up.

                    There's also an Internet rumor that Marj Dusay is on her way out. But
                    setside sources say that executive producer John Conboy told Dusay
                    that she's safe.

                    GL'S BABY TRAGEDY

                    Olivia returns to Springfield this week on Guiding Light and drops a
                    very sad bombshell: Her baby died.

                    "She has come back to tell Phillip, tie up loose ends and take off
                    again," outlines Crystal Chappell(Olivia). "She tells Cassie first,
                    then Alan. She keeps going around town spreading the news. It's so
                    sad."

                    Before she can tell Phillip Olivia is warned that he's in bad
                    shape. "Olivia knew he was starting to have a breakdown," notes
                    Chappell. "She starts to look around to see who will tell her the
                    truth about Phillip. She can't believe he's lost it. Finally she goes
                    to see him for herself and see how out of it he is. That's when she
                    realizes she can't tell him, because it would make things worse. So
                    she has to stick around until he is better in order to tell him."

                    Is there more to Olivia's story? You'd better believe it. "There are
                    certain things I can't talk about," hedges Chappell. "But yes, she's
                    coming back with a secret. There is definitely something else going
                    on."

                    him -- and it's not days...


                    OLIVIA RETURNS TO GUIDING LIGHT

                    Phillip is convinced that he's been seeing Olivia everywhere, but
                    this week on Guiding Light his eyes aren't deceiving him. On Dec. 3,
                    Olivia returns to Springfield with devastating news.

                    "She comes back to town to tie up some business with Cassie, but also
                    has to tell Phillip and the rest of the Spauldings that the baby
                    died," sighs portrayer Crystal Chappell. Due to Phillip's
                    deteriorating mental state, his family advises Liv to keep him in the
                    dark about his daughter's death. "She's was just going to come to
                    town to give people the news and leave, but then she finds out that
                    Phillip is in really bad shape," the actress previews. "So, she's
                    hanging around a little longer to try to help him."

                    Jumping back into work was definitely a transition for the sleep
                    deprived new mom. "The first week I was a little nervous because I
                    hadn't done it in awhile. I took eight weeks off. I couldn't remember
                    anything." She laughs.

                    As for her home life, Chappell beams, "It's precious time. We're all
                    tired, but doing well. And they're boys. They're loud. One sets the
                    other off. It's like a domino effect. I tell them, 'Don't cry because
                    this one will start to cry.' But really, it's been terrific."

                    already had a past where I put him there," says Lauren Woodland, who
                    plays Brittany. But Brittany hadn't counted on Bobby spinning her
                    reasons for leaving to Raul. "The way Bobby characterized it, I quit
                    out of pity, which frustrates and embarrasses Raul."

                    Brittany decides to confront Bobby at his office. "She wants to set
                    him straight and tell him he has a big mouth," Woodland explains.
                    Bobby, who's interested in having Brittany for himself, quickly turns
                    the tables. "He says her relationship with Raul is juvenile, and that
                    she should move on to a bigger and more grown-up affair." Left in a
                    vulnerable state, Bobby takes advantage of the situation. "Brittany's
                    confused," notes Woodland. "She realizes that she could have this
                    relationship if she wanted to."

                    Woodland admits that there is an undeniable attraction between
                    Brittany and Bobby. "He's a very masculine and powerful man," she
                    characterizes. "He's dangerous, and his attention gives her a little
                    thrill." But her feelings still lie with Raul. "She truly loves him,"
                    Woodland concludes.

                    MY POV: Like any good daytime viewer, I dig a good love triangle. But
                    it seems that As the World Turns's tortured trio of Dusty, Rose and
                    Paul has turned into a love knot. Still steamed that Rose dumped him
                    for his former best friend, and spurred on by disturbing visions of
                    his devilish daddy, James, Paul has been putting a little fear into
                    Rose. Dusty stumbled on the truth, but since he lost Rose's trust
                    after she caught him in his own love knot with Molly, he's having a
                    hard time convincing the Jersey gal he's just looking out for her
                    best interest. Then Molly, wrangling with her own feelings for Dusty,
                    stirred up the pot by bringing the the cop, Hal, into the mix. Of
                    course, that just gives Paul leverage to keep his mother, Barbara —
                    who's always despised Paul with Rose — away from his intended by
                    stating he'll go to Hal and keep her from seeing their son Will if
                    she interferes. But it takes more than a threat to stop Babs, who
                    hired a hit man to off Rose. Who knows how far she'll go to keep Paul
                    and Rose from making it to the altar? Love can leave even the most
                    sane person beside themselves. I can only hope this twisted tale
                    works itself out in the end.

                      a secret of Danny's. Chris and Paul will continue to cross paths in
                      the context of the Victor Newman investigation; Paul uncovers
                      information about something unthinkable that Chris has done.

                      While Ashley may appear to be all right, all is not well. The
                      Ash/Brad/Victor/Abby story will culminate with February Sweeps.

                      Look for dramatic developments for Jill and Katherine on 1/7 and 1/19.

                      The Sharon/Cameron arc will be huge in January and February; expect
                      Cameron to make a dramatic exit.

                      Michael has his hands full with legal problems and Kevin. JT and Paul
                      team up to bust Baldwin's brother.

                      Phyllis's crazy actions in January will impact the Newmans and Abbots
                      dramatically.

                      RUMOR

                      I have no idea how reliable the source is.

                      (I've broken this post up into paragraphs for easier reading)


                      QUOTE
                      Have not watched gl in 5 months..Tuned in today and.... Was shocked
                      at what it has turned into. I go to an acting school in New York and
                      i am friends with one of the younger actors. Well they told me too
                      tune in because the Jeffery story was going to start picking up
                      steam. The show is a mess.

                      Well my friend who is leaving the show early next year because they
                      feel the show has lost its heart says to expect many changes. It
                      seems that yet again stories are going to be droped not because of
                      fans but as a result of higher ups putting pressure on the show. As
                      for the rumors about new writer expect to hear something early
                      january.

                      Eden is not going anywhere but one vet is heading out. And the show
                      is revaluting how they respond to fan bases because many stories were
                      changed early this year for one couple and now ratings are still
                      down.

                      Harley and Gus fans start writing those letters if you love that
                      couple becasue you won't like what is coming up. It was fun hearing
                      all this inside scoop but as i was being told i felt sad because yet
                      again gl is going to go through a major change which could be good or
                      bad.

                      Olivia story is going to be really really really..BIG SURPRISE...not
                      what you think..ha ha.. thats the only story that is still going
                      foward.

                      The Mayor and Ghost/jeffery story are going to be rushed to a quick
                      conclusion and expect different people front and center by late
                      January.



                      When I asked for specifics on the Olivia storyline, all they could
                      say was that the baby is not dead and that Olivia has several secrets
                      that she is keeping.

                      grave-& they are not her regular entourage! But as marah & Marina
                      inch closer to discovering the truth, Michelle thinks about bailing
                      out of this Scooby gang.
                      The In Depth Preview
                      Unable to find any accident report from the night Maryanne may have
                      met her death, M M M agree to meet at the graveyard, hoping to prove
                      that at least Ms. Caruthers did die. Locating Maryanne's tombstone,
                      the three are relieved-yet fearful-that Carrie hadn't been lying.
                      Later, when they confront their fathers & grandfather, Josh Ed & Buzz
                      aren't keen on having such a long-buried memories dredged up & snap
                      that they don't want to discuss the matter. Meeting back at the
                      museum, the girls begin having second thoughts about causing the men
                      such pain when Carrie appears, offering a chance to back out.
                      Although Marah & Marina decide to forge ahead with uncovering the
                      mysterious secret, Michelle decides she can't go any further!However,

                      they uncover next?

                      Ins & Outs
                      Ever since Saundra Santiago was spotted this Oct at a GL Fan Club
                      Weekend event, tongues have been wagging that the actress might be
                      soon making a return as Mob mama Carmen Santos, But is the buzz bona
                      fide of bogus?
                      The in Depth Story:
                      On-line speculation suggests that a comeback for Santiage-who was
                      slated to remain with the Broadway production of Nine through Jan,but
                      that was prior to the show's run being snipped shorton Dec.14-is a
                      real possibility. A comatose Carmen was shipped off to a high-
                      security prison hospital at the start -of 2003, but seeing the
                      matriarch back in evil action would please hopeful Santiago fans,
                      many of whom point to the recent re-signing of Santiago's close
                      friend & on-screen son, Paul Anthony Stewart, as an indication that
                      her return is in the works. While one setside source shrugs "Nothing
                      would surprise me," another is doubtful that, in a time of budget
                      cuts, the soap would re-hire Santiago: "They're trimming the cast,
                      not adding to it."
                      GL rep states,"We do not comment on rumors."
                      Two Big Reasons Why Carmen Should Return.
                      Danny is running for mayor:
                      Carmen, always had high aspirations for her son, but they were more
                      of the organized crime variety than as a local official. [Splitting
                      hairs, we know.] Sure, Danny has put in a lot of hard work in turning
                      the family reputation around, but Carmen could destry all that in a
                      heartbeat.
                      Ed's Got a Huge Secret:
                      From the get-go Carmen has detested Michelle's holier-than-thou
                      family. Whatever it is regarding the mysterious Maryanne Caruthers
                      that Ed is so worried about becoming public knowledge, you just know
                      it'd be sweet revenge for Carmen to air the doc's dirty laundry
                      herself!

                      No More Cast Cuts?
                      A well-placed GL insider reports that the recent rash of cast members
                      being taken off contract will come to an end soon after New Year's
                      day when one last vet, a male this time, is bumped to recurring.

                      When Michelle wants to back out of trying to solve the Maryanne
                      Caruthers mystery on Wed. Dec.17, will Marina & marah be able to
                      convince their friend to continue helping the? Meanwhile, Harley has
                      some decisions to make of her own about assisting an unlikely ally.
                      It's a tough call but on Th. Dec.18, she reluctantly agrees to spy on
                      Gus. And as Harley deals with keeping her dirty deed a secret from
                      her fiance, her best bud, Blake, is certainly in the Christmas spirit
                      on Mon. Dec.22 when her better half, Ross, shares some good

                      2004 SOW winter previews

                      Here's to hoping that the new year will be a better one than the last
                      for those who reside in Springfield. But from what Mary Alice Dwyer-
                      Dobbin, executive in charge of production for Procter & Gamble
                      Productions, tells us, it sounds like 2004 wil be filled with just as
                      much drama as ever for your favorite Guiding Light characters!

                      Reva's Sixth Sense Disturbs Josh
                      As Reva still struggles to come to terms with her extrasensory
                      powers, her psychic visions create a rift on the home front. "Reva's
                      still got these premonitions, and she's still trying to figure out
                      how to work with them," notes Dwyer-Dobbin. "So it continues to be a
                      challenge for her and all those around her." Especially when Reva's
                      premonitions threaten to reveal a deep, personal secret that Josh has
                      kept buried for many, many years. Dwyer-Dobbin adds that January 5
                      will be an episode that no Josh and Reva fan will want to miss.

                      Will Carrie's Presence Tear Families Apart?
                      Carrie's relationship with Michelle, Marah and Marina will push
                      certain members of the Lewis, Bauer and Cooper clans to the
                      edge. "January 6 is a big day to watch for one of those
                      relationships, " teases the executive. Will details surrounding the
                      night Billy, Josh, Ed, Buzz and Alan swore to never discuss again
                      become explosed?

                      Harley and Gus at Odds!
                      With Gus filling in at Spaulding Enterprises during Phillip's
                      absence, and Harley doing a little digging around over there on
                      behalf of D.A. Jeffrey, the happy couple find themselves exchanging
                      barbs more often than kisses as they become embroiled in the
                      company's dramas! "Jeffrey has gotten both of them involved in this,
                      and it just gets deeper and deeper," teases Dwyer-Dobbin, noting that
                      January 9 will be an important day to watch. "Look for Jeffrey to be
                      involved in a lot of this."

                      Is the Honeymoon over for Edmund and Cassie?
                      Both Cassie and Edmund have had unsavory pasts, but as the new year
                      kicks off, it seems that at every twist and turn, their old deeds
                      will create havoc for the happy couple. Dwyer-Dobbin notes that not
                      only do Cassie and Edmund face obstacles as to who approves and
                      disapproves of their relationship, but also "obstacles in terms of
                      why those disapprovals are so deep-seated." Might it cause a "make it
                      or break it" turning point in Cassie and Edmund's relationship?

                      The holidays are joyous for most, but the pace can be disheartening
                      for those who have lost a loved one. Being married to famed counselor
                      John W. James, co-author of the Grief Recovery Handbook, The Young
                      and the Restless's Jess Walton (Jill) has acquired a few words of
                      guidance on mastering the stress of the season. "Realize that your
                      feelings are all right and nobody can tell you what's inappropriate
                      about them," she stresses. "Acknowledge them and get it out." The
                      sentiment is an inspiration to Walton, who taps in to deal with the
                      loss of her own father. "If I think of a wonderful time I had with
                      him and I never got to tell him that, I say, 'Thank you, Daddy. I
                      loved it.' It keeps the connection alive." Walton encourages those
                      who may be having a hard time handling their emotions to seek
                      assistance at Grief Recovery. "The number is (800) 334-7606, or you
                      can get information at grief.net," she shares. "It's so important to
                      have this information at this time of year."

                      MY POV: Like my mom always says, when it rains men, it often pours.
                      And The Bold and the Beautiful's Bridget finds herself needing two
                      umbrellas at the moment. On one hand, there's the heartfelt proposal
                      from Oscar Marone. Oscar has fallen hard for Bridget since she mended
                      his broken bones and broke down his tough-boy exterior. It doesn't
                      seem to matter that the man has past connections to the Mafia, ones
                      that cost Macy her life. But the reformed gangsta still seems like a
                      wiser selection than the other man determined to have Bridget's hand —
                      her former hubby, Deacon Sharpe. Yes, the same man who married
                      Bridget to punish her family, and then had an affair with her mom,
                      Brooke, which resulted in the birth of Hope. If Bridget remarries
                      Deacon, she'll be Hope's stepmother and half-sister! Whatever choice
                      Bridget makes, she needs to stick to it. No flip-flopping back and
                      forth between two lovers like As the World Turns's Rose did over
                      Dusty and Paul. Rose's indecision led her all the way to the altar,
                      only to take her last, poisoned breath.

                      An Old Rivalry Returns!
                      "Chris just dismisses Phyllis," says Stafford. "She's like, 'Listen,
                      you're a freak.'"
                      Ever since her 2000 return, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Phyllis has
                      been so caught up in her tumultuous relationship with Jack — not to
                      mention nearly being sent to the slammer for a crime she didn't
                      commit — that she's exchanged nary a snide remark with former arch
                      enemy Christine. Until recently, that is. Indeed, with the return of
                      Danny has come the return of the twosome's once bitter rivalry! "I
                      love the totally out-of-control, obviously jealous/bitter/can't-win
                      aspect of their relationship," shares the fiery redhead's portrayer,
                      Michelle Stafford.
                      While Phyllis spars equally with both Diane and Dru, Stafford says
                      neither of those women can compete with the bone-deep loathing her
                      alter ego has for the new assistant D.A. "With Diane, Phyllis has won
                      [in the past, by landing Jack]. And with Dru, it's fun and they love
                      the game. It's not personal," notes the actress. "But with
                      Christine... Phyllis can't win and she knows it. Christine has always
                      won over Phyllis, and I love that. With Christine, it goes to the
                      core."
                      Considering Danny doesn't seem to be going anywhere in the near
                      future, and Phyllis is part of the bribery scheme Chris is zeroing in
                      on, fans can expect only one thing when it comes to these two
                      beauties: The competition is going to get even hotter!

                      THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Michael Damian (Danny) has a special gift
                      for his fans this year: Michael Damian and Family: "The Christmas
                      Album," a new CD which can be ordered either at his Web site or
                      Amazon.com. "It started out as just something for my family,"
                      explains the actor/singer. "Then my Web site designer, Katherine,
                      said, 'Why not offer it to the audience?'"
                      The result is an album filled with 15 Yuletide classics
                      performed by the Y&R star and his clan. "We got an incredible 'all-
                      star' band together," Damian smiles. "And now we want to share it
                      with the fans, and people who love Christmas music." For much more on

                      Roger Howarth (Paul) has very quietly re-signed his contract for
                      another six months……………..Yes the show is hyping Mark Collier's (Mike)
                      nude scene next month. Looks like we FINALLY get a Mike/Katie love
                      scene………..I hear our favorite head writer Hogan Sheffer has pitched a
                      story that may bring Ellen Dollan's Margo front burner again. Sorry
                      there would be very little seen of Tom-considered in focus polls the
                      show's most boring character and one that would be gone by now if he
                      wasn't so rooted in the show's history……………..Show is not only casting
                      Casey but I hear they are now recasting Adam……………..Don't worry we
                      have not seen the last of Mitzi. Anne Sayre (Mitzi) is having a
                      baby…………….Alison and Aaron marry this week. Will Chris be the guest
                      of honor?………….Looks like Barbara has gone way over the edge-make sure
                      you watch on Friday the 12th.

                      The show gets a new opening in January-gee it's about time!
                      ……………………..Drew Tyler Bell has been cast as a teenaged Thomas and
                      debuts January 9th. Should I ask the obvious-is he related to
                      Bradley Bell or any of the Bells who created and write the show? If
                      he is they are keeping it quiet!……………First he was leaving, but now
                      Joseph Marcell (Hudson) has signed a contract with the show…….Those
                      Ian Buchanan (ex-James) rumors have started in earnest again.

                      GL

                      After months of rumor mongering, even confounding co-stars, Nancy
                      St.Alban (Michelle) has announced that her contract doesn't expire
                      until May of next year…………..Wesley Ramsey returns in January as Sam,
                      Olivia's brother. Shouldn't they offer this man a contract at this
                      point?! Could this be where Olivia's baby is? Stay tuned!……….I
                      expect BIG, BIG "GL" news after the first of the new year!

                      Y&R

                      Looks like the show is going back through it's audition tapes from
                      when they cast Victor's dad to find a candidate to play a man from
                      Katherine's past who WILL be Jill's dad. They want a name-and this
                      man may have other ties to Genoa City…………..Ok I keep saying it and
                      I'll say it again, the show has put the recasting of Vicki off until
                      early next year. And NO Erin Hershey Presley (ex-Alison, "PC") has
                      not been approached for the role. NO ONE has!……….The show maybe
                      losing one of it's younger cast members, who is thinking of bolting
                      to greener pastures.

                        years ago. The day to watch in this storyline is January 5, when all

                        things that she can do that will really help her situation vis-a-vis

                        day when Danny get a competitor.

                        DIRTY LAUNDRY (Gossip)

                        May old acquaintance be forgot. Truly the motto of the people in
                        charge of daytime. Older vets were tossed aside like yesterday's news
                        in favor of less expensive, less talented young-ins under thirty. If
                        you were over thirty five, your place in the daytime landscape was
                        far from secure. Ironically, much of the soap scene behind the
                        cameras is run by a 40-ish and above crowd. And many of them are
                        beyond played out but changes in that area were few and far between.

                        When changes behind the scenes were made, it was usually in favor of
                        bringing back familiar faces as opposed to new blood. Case in point,
                        only three shows made changes in the head writer offices this year
                        and all brought back writers from the past.

                        (skipped all the non-cbs stuff)

                        BEST RECURRING-Trent Dawson's Henry, "As The World
                        Turns"……….Ok "World Turns" would you please give Trent Dawson a
                        contract before one day you wake up and he is no longer available
                        because he moved on to bigger things! It's a huge daytime mystery
                        that needs to be solved! Dawson's Henry can do so much with so
                        little and we cant wait to see what he does next. The bachelor
                        auction with Lucinda-priceless. And proof that Henry could do a lot
                        more in Oakdale.

                        MOST IN NEED OF AN ACTING COACH-Marty West (Shane, "GL")……….If you
                        watch "GL" you know what I mean. When a character is comatose and not
                        talking and the actor is doing a magnificent job, you know you have a
                        problem."GL" should do something bold and kill off Shane or recast.
                        Hey Mr. West while you seek out an acting teacher, do something about
                        that fan club president of yours too! And I don't mean wrestling!

                        MOST IN NEED OF BIRTH CONTROL-Brooke, "B&B"……….Just keep your pants
                        on Brooke! Please! You are out of control. BTW, you have more
                        chemistry with a lamp-post than Ridge. Dump him, go back to Nick (who
                        doesn't appear to be using Botox or plastic surgery to stay young!)
                        and practice birth control. (NEW CATEGORY)

                        BEST ACTRESS-TIE-Tamara Braun (Carly, "GH") and Tamara Tunie
                        (Jessica, "World Turns")………This was just too close to call. The
                        battle of the Tamaras! I hope we see both names at Emmy time because
                        these two ladies are certainly the Best actresses in daytime today.
                        Tunie hit the ball out of the park with the rape story and continued
                        hitting home runs with the Bonnie story then Marshall's death. Braun
                        won me over during the Panic Room story-a truly horrible plot line.
                        But Braun made it worth watching. She has continued giving winning
                        performances all year long and the Alcazar twist has showed us maybe
                        there is life beyond Sonny and Carly. My only complaints? It might be
                        time to give Braun a little time off. And Id like to see more of
                        Tunie.

                        BEST ACTOR-Grant Aleksander, (Phillip, "Guiding Light")…………..What can
                        I say about Mr.Aleksander? I think I've always taken the actor for
                        granted. He's always been there, delivering solid performances.
                        However, I never really liked Phillip. But as I took the ride with
                        Aleksander as Phillip faced his downfall and a complete breakdown, I
                        was enthralled. Where was he hiding this talent? The actor is
                        blowing his co-stars off the screen in the performance of his
                        career. Hello Emmy, have you met Mr.Aleksander?

                        --From tvguide.com

                        SAVING ASHLEY
                        As the year came to a close, trauma and tragedy sent The Young and
                        the Restless' Ashley to her breaking point. "After seeing Victor and
                        Brad arguing at the Athletic Club, her worlds collided, and it was
                        just too much," explains Eileen Davidson, Ashley's portrayer, whose
                        alter ego slipped into a catatonic state. "She's retreated to time
                        that was more simple to her." This week, Ashley makes a promising
                        breakthrough, but one that's shocking to the men closest to
                        her. "Ashley associates Victor with a happier time in her life,"
                        Davidson teases. "When she hears his name mentioned, it triggers that
                        association."

                        Hard to believe that a man whose love has kept Ashley on an emotional
                        roller coaster for decades could be her only saving grace back to
                        sanity. The first time Ashley lost it in the early '80s, it was
                        because she had aborted Victor's baby. "For Ashley, Victor is
                        something that never really was, but she's always hoped to obtain
                        somehow," Davidson theorizes. "Their love had so much promise. If it
                        could work out, it could be the most incredible love, but it always
                        falls short because of the circumstances. It's like this flame that
                        won't go out, no matter how many times it's been stomped on." But
                        that doesn't mean that Ashley underestimates her husband, Brad, and
                        how her recovery can affect their relationship. "Her love with Brad
                        has the potential to last forever. It's much more based in real
                        life."



                        ROWELL SPEAKS OUT
                        Victoria Rowell (Drucilla, Y&R) isn't afraid to speak her mind.
                        Appearing as a guest panelist on America's Black Forum special:
                        Blacks in TV, 25 Years — airing in syndication beginning Jan. 5 —
                        Rowell gives a voice to race relations in the daytime arena. "The
                        Young and the Restless does reflect diversity in daytime, and it is
                        practiced by CBS and Sony by way of our show," says Rowell
                        proudly. "I give homage to what we've been doing for the past 30
                        years, and stress how [diversity] should effect all mediums."
                        Participating in the distinguished discusion, which includes civil
                        rights leader Julian Bond, was an honor for the actress. "You are not
                        invited to sit on a panel with Julian if you don't know your facts,"
                        she declares. "We discussed politics, media and programming; it's a
                        very rich experience." Forum is just one of many projects that kept
                        Rowell busy through the end of the year. She just wrapped the movie,
                        A Perfect Fit, in New York City. "I'm starring with an actor named
                        Adrian Grenier, and people are calling him a young Benicio Del Toro."
                        Through Rowell Foster Children's Positive Plan, the actress threw a
                        foster care reform kickoff party at Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles,
                        which brought out action star Bruce Willis. And the advocate is
                        featured as the Hero of the Month in the January issue of Glamour
                        magazine. "On page 22. I'm not ashamed to make the plug," she
                        chuckles.

                        Get a peek on what goes on behind the scenes of a daytime drama as
                        VH1 Goes Inside The Hottest Soaps, premiering Jan. 9.

                        To celebrate the holiday season bathed in California's sunny rays,
                        Crystal Chappell (Olivia, GL) had to create an escape plan. "We spent
                        Christmas with my husband's [soap vet Michael Sabatino] family, but
                        that meant I'd be on a plane with two little kids," she points out.
                        Chappell managed to survive the flight with Jacob, 3, and Dylan, 4
                        months, thanks to a few creative distractions. "I brought surprise
                        presents for Jacob during the ride, and a little DVD player so he
                        could watch a movie. He chewed gum, and I put a bottle in Dylan,"
                        Chappell recalls. "I was just trying to fill that six hours." Despite
                        having two children to play Santa to this Christmas, Chappell didn't
                        break the bank on Xmas gifts. "Dylan is just happy to be bounced
                        around. I got him stacking blocks, and I have a lot of stuff from
                        Jacob to give him," she says. "But there is that slightest hint of
                        guilt. I had to go out a buy a couple of toys that are just his."
                        Chappell and company kept their New Year's celebration on the simple
                        side, choosing to stay close to home. "We flew back from California
                        the day before New Year's. We just wanted to be in our new home with
                        friends and nest for a while."

                        use birth control. Oscar should dump boring Bridget and hit the
                        sheets with Amber; with her new hair color, these two would sizzle. I
                        think Nick and Samantha would make a good pairing. How about a good
                        who-done-it mystery? Let Sally go missing, and then figure out where

                        characters, characters that break into song with the least
                        provocation and murder mysteries that involve characters that were
                        never even on the canvas (i.e.: Maryanne Caruthers), just don't win

                        GL'S CHAPPELL: "IT WAS LIKE SOMEONE DIED"

                        As reported last issue, the cast of Guiding Light was stunned when
                        executive producer John Conboy abruptly left the show on Dec. 15, and
                        they made their feelings known.

                        "I tell you, Monday night and all day Tuesday it was like someone
                        died," confides Crystal Chappell. "I could tell people had gone out
                        drinking the night before, I certainly had a couple. Mickey(Dwyer-
                        Dobbin) put it best: You would have thought John Kennedy had been
                        shot again."

                        Of course, Conboy, who was en route back to California that Tuesday,
                        had his job back by the time he got off the plane. "When I walked in
                        Wednesday, people were literally dancing," says Chappell. "I've never
                        seen such an outpouring of support."

                        Winter Previews

                        Mickey Dwyer-Dobbin previews:

                        Harley/Gus fans will have to be patient: A Harley/Gus wedding isn't
                        on the calendar yet" But they will be involved heavily in the
                        shenanigans at Spaulding Enterprises. "There will be sparks flying."

                        Reva can't figure out the [Maryanne Caruthers mystery]. Some of the
                        premonitions she is having can be interpreted different ways. She is
                        starting to get closer to the fact that they relate to Josh. Of
                        course, he is getting more stressed himself as the storyline moves
                        along."

                        The past comes back to haunt Cassie. "It is something the audience
                        experienced," but it doesn't involve Jeffrey...yet. "Edmund tries to
                        help, for better or worse."

                        Eden and Tony "are getting some information that is not good."

                        Olivia is staying and makes a surprising move on Phillip. "It's
                        ultimately going to turn out to be more than work..."

                        GL SECRET IS OUT

                        After months of cryptic hints, GL's Carrie finally gives Marah,
                        Michelle and Marina the scoop about what happened to Maryanne. "It's
                        come back to bite [these men]," previews Ron Raines (Alan).

                        In 1977, Josh, Billy, Buzz, Alan, Ed and Maryanne piled into a car
                        and ended up drinking beer that Alan had drugged. The car plunged off
                        a bridge; all survived -- except Maryanne. The boys made a pact never
                        to tell anyone about the incident.

                        The women confront the men about Carrie's story. They're
                        reactions? "Buzz throws up," previews Justin Deas. "Ed is psychotic,"
                        shares Peter Simon (Ed). Billy and Josh refuse to confirm it. "That's
                        what's heartbreaking. Josh is standing there doing something that is
                        completely against his character. [He] forces himself to do it
                        because of [their] agreement," notes Robert Newman(Josh).

                        Now that the secret is out, expect repercussions, as Ed sabotages his
                        medical career and Buzz decided to leave town.

                        Afterward, Michelle confronted Ed with Carrie's story and got a

                        has a vision of someone drowning. Who does she see in the water? Is
                        it someone close to her? We have a sneaking suspicion that it is.
                        Question is how close?

                        In the meantime, the mystery surrounding Maryanne Caruthers continues
                        to build as Springfield's young women ponder the situation and the
                        older men revisit the choices they made that fateful night in 1977.
                        What will Marah, Marina and Michelle do now that they know the truth
                        thanks to Carrie?

                        Speaking of Michelle, when Rick assumes that it was Danny who bruised

                        did inflict the injury. With Rick now in the loop, will he keep
                        Michelle's secret from Danny?

                        On the other side of Springfield, Harley gets dressed for her

                        heels, will he make the wrong assumption?

                        At the same time, Edmund forces Cassie to face her past. How will she

                          FONSECA'S 100th TURN
                          Lyndsy Fonseca (Colleen, Y&R) is popping up in prime time again with
                          a guest spot on the 100th episode of the teen angst sitcom, Malcolm
                          in the Middle, airing on Feb. 22 on FOX (9:00 pm/ET). "I play a girl
                          that Malcolm likes, and I'm all into him because he and his brother
                          have a Mustang," she says. Fonseca, who auditioned for the role, got
                          a chance to flex her funny bone. "I'm pretty wacky in real life, so
                          doing the comedy wasn't that hard," she reveals. "But I was nervous,
                          so when Frankie Muniz [who plays Malcolm] came over to strike up
                          conversation, that made me really comfortable." There were no giggles
                          over the weather during the filming; the scenes were shot on one of
                          Los Angeles' coldest days. "It was freezing. I had on a sweater,
                          Frankie's jacket and a big winter coat that wardrobe provided. They
                          made a fire and people were crowding around it," Fonseca says. "It
                          was a total freak day."

                          Lyndsy Fonseca appears as a girl involved in a murder in an upcoming
                          episode of NYPD Blue... Y&R alum Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella) has been

                          chronicling secret lives of four women living in a cul-de-sac. Marc
                          Cherry and GH co-head writer Charles Pratt created the show.

                          23 and 24... Christian Corp returns as Maryanne Caruthers on Feb. 25.

                          Talk about a divine vision. The inspiration for Tracy Bregman's
                          (Lauren, Y&R) new clothing line, Bountiful Buddha, came from a moment
                          she thought she'd witnessed. "I was in yoga class, and I saw a saying
                          on this woman's pants. I said to myself, 'That's cute, I'd wear
                          that.' Then she moved, and it didn't say that at all." Bregman took
                          matters into her own hands to create a complete line of yoga
                          gear. "The sayings are all take-offs of the word 'om', as in 'Om My
                          God," and 'Om is Where the Heart Is." Bregman was already in the
                          entrepreneurial spirit when she started her venture. "I had spent 18
                          months working on a makeup line before this," she says. "I like to
                          manage things." Bountiful Buddha, which launches next month at
                          bountifulbuddha.com, is more than just workout gear. The profits from
                          the line will change lives. "A portion of the proceeds go to One
                          Family (onefamily.org.), an amazing foundation that helps rebuild the
                          lives who have been affected by terrorism in Israel," Bregman
                          shares. "The other is women's cancer research, in honor of my
                          grandmother, who died of breast cancer, and my cousin, who died of
                          ovarian cancer." Bregman hopes the tags in her clothing will change
                          lives closer to home. "It reads, 'Live in peace, laugh often, love
                          passionately and be happy in this moment.'"

                          MIRRORS & MIIRRORS

                          History repeats itself this week on Guiding Light when a visit to a
                          funhouse to the Old County fairgrounds turns deadly. Once the smoke
                          clears, Carrie is gone, but that hardly means that the ordeal of
                          Maryanne Carruthers is over. Especially for the Lewis family!

                          Shots In The Dark

                          Unaware that their scarab rings have been laced with Antimonius,
                          Michelle, Marah and Marina arrive at the fairgrounds for Carrie's
                          memorial for Maryanne. At the very same moment, Carrie has trapped
                          Ed, Josh, Buzz, Billy and Alan in a maze of mirrors inside the
                          funhouse, demanding one of the girls lives! "She tells them that it's
                          the only fair payment for the loss of Maryanne, but they say there's
                          no way," previews headwriter Ellen Weston. "Then suddenly, the men
                          hear the girls voices, having no idea that the girls were on their
                          way."

                          Immediately realizing the grave danger the girls are in when Carrie
                          pulls a gun, the men scramble to bring the drugged and dazed
                          Michelle, Marah and Marina to safety. "Ed manages to find the exit
                          and locks Michelle and Marina outside," reveals Weston. Unfortunately
                          in the melee, Marah gets separated from Josh, who, in his frantic
                          search for his daughter, instead finds Carrie!

                          Buzz sees that, and pulls his gun to get a bead on her, but she
                          shoots him and his gun goes flying," says the scribe. "Josh jumps on
                          Carrie and wrestles the gun away from her, and as they're struggling,
                          a shot rings out. Carrie's been hit."

                          Repeat Performance

                          Although Ms. Caruthers falls through the funhouse trapdoor and is
                          washed downstream by the forceful current, none of the men are
                          prepared for what they see next: A dazed and confused Marah, holding
                          Buzz's smoking gun! "She's pretty catatonic about it, and doesn't
                          recall what she's done," notes Lindsey McKeon(Marah). Adds, Robert
                          Newman "Josh is incredibly overwhelmed and feels guilt that he was
                          such a big part of bringing this all on."

                          Without a moment's hesitation, Josh declares to the other men that he
                          will take full responsibility for shooting Carrie. Refusing to leave
                          Josh all alone, Ed, Buzz, Billy and Alan concoct a story to tell the
                          police, that Carrie was a crazy dangerous woman stalking Josh. "The
                          same thing they did 30 years ago is repeating itself in the present,"
                          says Weston. 'which is exactly what Carrie wanted."

                          Will Reva Uncover The Truth?

                          Meanwhile, all night long, Reva has been fighting the odd feeling she
                          can't make sense of, complete with carnival music! Josh has only the
                          best intentions in protecting his daughter by taking the blame upon
                          himself, but might Reva's psychic intuition make him regret that
                          noble decision? Especially when by week's end, she learns of Josh's
                          arrest? Worst yet, What is Marah snaps out of her trance, recalling
                          the night's true events? Teases Weston, "There's one more very big
                          surprise ahead very soon. Within two weeks, you will have a sense
                          that something is not quite right, and then --Boom!--it will hit,"
                          she concludes with a laugh. "Oh that poor Lewis family

                          Carrie, whose body was washed away in the current. Josh declared that
                          he shot Carrie, as the men opted to say that Carrie had been stalking
                          Josh.

                          Olivia defied Cassie when confronted about the secret she's keeping
                          from Phillip. Phillip was taken aback when Olivia asked him to sign
                          an addendum to his will, but went along with it when she said it's
                          important for any children they may have.

                          Coming: Josh risks all to save Marah.

                          The men of Springfield are threatened when they enter the hall of
                          mirrors. Does Carrie truly intend to carry out her threat? Is a young
                          woman's life in danger as payback for Maryanne? Or is Carrie's own
                          life at risk?

                          In the meantime, the men concoct an alibi for the police. Will the
                          police accept their story, or does one or more of them get arrested?

                          Across town, Cassie and Olivia face off regarding Phillip and the
                          reasons he's at Ravenwood. Will Olivia admit the truth to Phillip, or
                          does she have her reasons for keeping silent?

                          Shortly thereafter, Gus senses that Alan is hiding something. Are
                          Gus's instincts correct? If so, what is Alan hiding? Find out when

                          Ross, may be going off contract. Details were sketchy at press time-
                          P&G doesn't comment on actors' contracts-but set side sources
                          indicate is would be a mutual decision between the actor & the show,
                          if indeed he switches to recurring. As previously reported Elizabeth
                          Keifer [Blake], who was bumped to recurring last year, won't be seen
                          much in upcoming weeks; the actress has gone to LA for pilot season.

                          return briefly to facilitate Dinah's return.

                          Marah Kills Carrie
                          Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the deadest of them all? GL's
                          Carrie, that's who. This week, Marah blows the old crone away.

                          "Josh is there with the guys confronting Carrie," sets up Robert
                          Newman, [Josh]." "She's taunting them & makes it clear that she wants
                          the life of one of their daughters in exchange for the life of
                          Maryanne. She wants them to choose. The men realize she has the girls
                          there. She has drugged them, so they are wandering the halls of the
                          house of mirrors. The guys hear their voices & know they're there,
                          but can't quite get their hands on them.

                          Finally, Josh sees Marah. "Then he loses her again," sighs
                          Newman. "Carrie shoots Buzz in the arm & he falls, & Josh jumps at
                          her & struggles with her. Here I am struggling with Carrie Nye [who
                          plays Carrie]. She's like 98 lbs, but a spunky lady--feisty & wiry.
                          They're both struggling for the gun, & a shot is fired & she's hit.
                          Josh thinks the gun they're struggling over went off. But then he
                          sees Marah standing behind Carrie with a smoking gun.

                          Hence a whole new cover-up is born. "Josh takes control & decides
                          he's going to be the one to take the blame, that the girls were never
                          there," reveals Newman. "The guys concoct almost the same kind of
                          thing that happened many years ago-only this time Josh is going to
                          take the sole blame for what happened.

                          [In another mag it said Carrie was shot & fell through a trap door &
                          was swept away by the current].

                            MCKEON OFF GL
                            Changes are happening at lightning speed at Guiding Light. On the
                            heels of the appointment of new executive producer Ellen Wheeler, two-
                            time Emmy nominee Lindsey McKeon (Marah) is leaving the show. "I was
                            sort of let go early," she tells TV Guide Online exclusively.
                            McKeon's initial requests to make an early exit from GL had been
                            denied, "so this was sort of a shock to me," she says candidly.

                            McKeon is looking at the sunnier side of her imminent departure —
                            literally. She's moving back to her home base in Los Angeles. "My
                            family's there and all my friends, so it's going to be wonderful to
                            be back and have my support group around me again," she says. "I've
                            got a bunch of scripts I'm reading right now, and I'm excited to work
                            on new things."

                            That doesn't make leaving the Big Apple any easier for the
                            actress. "They've become a family to me," she declares of her GL cast
                            and crew. "And I will miss New York terribly. It's so charming here,
                            I've grown to love it."

                            Setside sources say that McKeon's exit is story line dictated.

                            Y&R'S GROWING GUEST ROSTER
                            The Young and Restless keeps the guest roster rolling with the eve of
                            spring. Comedian Geri Jewell, the first actress with a disability to
                            win a regular role in a TV series, The Facts of Life, will appear on
                            the soap on March 26 and 29. She'll interact with Brittany, who was
                            recently scarred in a freak electrical accident. Y&R will also
                            feature the soothing pipes of singer Smokey Robinson on March 9.

                            Jodi Stevens appears as interviewer Darla Davenport and Bill Raymond
                            plays the judge at Clark's trial.

                            The Bold and the Beautiful: On March 4, Jessica Goulet, Cat Halzle
                            and Allicia Landstedt appear as models; Brad Symons is Tommy.

                            MY POV: On March 4, NBC reveals who has claimed an official nom in
                            the race toward Emmy. Here are some (but by no means all) of the
                            people I'd like to see snag a nomination...

                            Lead Actress: Kassie DePaiva (Blair, OLTL). DePaiva breathed a
                            vengeful breath into Blair when she learned her new husband, Walker
                            Laurence, was actually her former husband, Todd Manning, then
                            suffered under Todd's wrath, all the while maneuvering a real-life
                            switch of her leading man.

                            Lead Actor: Grant Aleksander (Phillip, GL). Aleksander's performance
                            peaked when he blamed himself for teenage daughter Lizzie's
                            destructive behavior, then slowly descended into madness when
                            pregnant Olivia disappeared with their unborn child.

                            Supporting Actress: Tamara Tunie (Jessica, ATWT). Breaking down her
                            tough woman exterior, Tunie brought Jessica's vulnerable side to the
                            surface as she dealt with the aftermath of her rape.

                            Supporting Actor: Ben Masters (Julian, Passions). Masters found
                            greedy, self-centered Julian Crane's human vein as he realized how
                            much life he had lost with his true love Eve and restored his
                            backbone as he tried to right the wrongs of decades past.

                            Younger Actress: Eden Riegel (Bianca, AMC). In Riegel's apt hands,
                            Bianca found the strength to show her love for another woman, then
                            gave a heartbreaking performance when she was brutally raped by
                            Michael Cambius.

                            Younger Actor: Scott Clifton (Dillon, GH). Mixing the silver screen
                            charm of yesteryear's leading men with impeccable comedic timing,
                            Clifton effortlessly became a welcomed addition to the Quartermaine
                            clan.

                            DIRTY LAUNDY (Gossip)

                            Spring is in the air soap fans. Could that mean more romance is about
                            to bloom on our favorite daytime dramas? Love certainly seems to be
                            in short supply on the soaps and that is sad. Also sad- the departure
                            of my buddy Queen of Hearts from the Soaptown USA family. I certainly
                            understand how tough it is these days to write a weekly column on
                            soap romance. Couple that with our Queen having a wonderful and
                            successful life outside of the soap world and it all makes sense.
                            It's still a bummer and I will miss my wonderful colleague and her
                            superb writing. Good luck Queen!

                            Spring also means out with the old and in with the new as shows do
                            some Spring cleaning, so to speak. In the headlines this
                            week, "Guiding Light". We learned early in the week that "GL"
                            Executive Producer John Conboy had been fired. Wasn't this déjà vu
                            from this past December all over again?!

                            To refresh your memories, late last year, word got out that Conboy
                            had been fired by "GL" or walked off the show when his contract
                            expired-we never really got a definitive answer. Within a day, the
                            situation was resolved, Conboy was back to work with a new contract
                            and CBS and Procter & Gamble (which owns "GL") were trying to forget
                            about this incident.

                            Fast forward a few months-February 20th to be exact. P&G bigwigs
                            called Conboy on the carpet as "GL's" ratings continue to plummet.
                            They told the EP how unhappy they were and by the end of that meeting
                            Conboy was out of a job.

                            Enter Ellen Wheeler, a very familiar name in the daytime world.
                            Wheeler won Emmy awards for her dual portrayal of Marley and Vicki
                            on "Another World" and Cindy on "All My Children". Since July, 1999,
                            Wheeler has been behind the camera as a director at "As The World
                            Turns". She was a director briefly in 2002 at "GL" before heading
                            back over to "World Turns". Wheeler steps in as Executive Producer
                            immediately.

                            Mary Alice Dwyer Dobbin, Executive in charge of production for P&G,
                            had this to say; "This is an exciting announcement for me to make.
                            Ellen joined our P&G family almost twenty years ago and has been an
                            invaluable asset working in almost every facet of production as an
                            actress, director and producer."

                            It's said with Wheeler's appointment, "GL" will be shifting gears and
                            will head in a new direction. First order of business is re-writing
                            or axing many of the shows' stories currently on the canvas. Rumor
                            has it up to six actors could be without jobs by mid-April as the
                            show shores up the cast and junks irrelevant characters. First story
                            to be cut is the Mayor plot.

                            The first performer cut is Lindsey McKeon who plays Marah. Many know
                            McKeon had already announced she planned on exiting when her contract
                            expired later this year. Some behind the scenes issues with the
                            actress forced her out earlier than she planned. The show claims her
                            departure is "Storyline dictated"-a phrase we may be hearing a lot in
                            the next month or so. McKeon last airs in early April. I have not
                            heard if there will be a recast or not yet.



                            I am told many of the cast are shaken up by Conboy's dismissal and
                            are worried about the future of the show. I am also told that Ellen
                            Wheeler is very popular with everyone at "GL" and this should be an
                            easier transition than normal.

                            And with rumors that this could be the long-running soap's final
                            stretch getting louder by the day, I hear the next situation to be
                            dealt with is head writer Ellen Weston, who could be gone within the
                            next few weeks. Rumors of the show replacing Weston have been around
                            for months, but now they make more sense. Ratings are down, P&G and
                            CBS are unhappy and fans no longer recognize this once formidable
                            soap.

                            I'm told P&G has ordered Weston to clean up the show pronto. Scripts
                            are being scrutinized and rewrites are the order of the day. Rumor
                            has it Weston has been asked to submit story outlines for the
                            remainder of the year, which could make or break Weston's future with
                            the show. Even with Donna Swajeski brought in as co-head writer, the
                            show's plots have been weak. I do hear Swajeski is safe for now.

                            It may be premature to discuss replacements, but word is a pair of
                            former "GL" writers or a gentleman completely new to the head
                            writer's chair are the leading contenders to step into the writing
                            position should Weston be relieved of her duties. One writer NOT on
                            the small list of replacements is Millee Taggert, who wrote the show
                            prior to Weston. I hear she is just not interested in a return. There
                            is also talk the show may "borrow" writing talent from within the CBS
                            shows. Top theory going around is that Hogan Sheffer, head writer
                            for "World Turns", could jump over to "GL" when his contract expires
                            next month. I do hear Sheffer is bored at "World Turns" and moving to
                            daytime's longest-running soap could be just the challenge the scribe
                            needs to jump start his creativity. A bonus is Sheffer knows Wheeler
                            from "World Turns"-did I mention Wheeler also brought her "AW"
                            character of Marley to Oakdale several times!?

                            "As The World Turns" is in very good shape with it's writing staff
                            and there is talk that co-head writer Jean Passanante could step in
                            to fill Sheffer's shoes should he leave.

                            To top everything off, there were always rumors that Conboy would
                            feature his "favorites" in stories, whether they were great
                            performers or not. I'm told one actor fears the rug may be pulled out
                            from under him now that Conboy is no longer there to protect him-and
                            he should. His rumored departure may now actually happen with no one
                            there to shield him. There is an ax with his name on it and a recast
                            is highly likely now. And it couldn't happen soon enough!



                            Just a side-note; Wheeler had been in the running for the EP position
                            before. Prior to Conboy taking the job, there was lots of speculation
                            Wheeler would get it. But Conboy lowered his salary request and the
                            feeble-minded people at P&G thought his experience in the soap genre
                            would save the show. You would've thought after the Paul Rauch
                            experience these people would learn!

                            On to news of daytimers branching out……….Last week I told you about
                            the soap stars, both present and former, heating up the screens in
                            prime time. This week, many favorites are tackling movie roles.

                            Corbin Bernsen, of `Law & Order' fame and most recently a brief role
                            on "Y&R", has lined up a cavalcade of daytime celebrities (13 to be
                            exact!) for his comedy `3 Day Test', which begins filming in April.

                            Kin Shriner (ex-Scott, "GH"), Jeanne Cooper (Katherine, "Y&R" and
                            Bernsen's real-life mom), Eileen Davidson (Ashley, "Y&R"), Kristoff
                            St.John (Neil, "Y&R"), John McCook (Eric, "B&B"), Stephen Martines
                            (Tony, "GL"), Julia Barr (Brooke, "AMC"), Jacob Young (J.R., "AMC"),
                            James Mitchell (Palmer, "AMC"), Tony Geary (Luke, "GH"), Farah Fath
                            (Mimi, "Days"), Arianne Zucker (Nicole, "Days") and James Reynolds
                            (ex-Abe, "Days") all star in the film, slated for a release late this
                            year.

                            And in New York, Eileen Fulton (Lisa, "World Turns") and Soaptown USA
                            favorite Ilene Kristen (Roxy, "One Life") have finished
                            filming `Signs of The Cross', a drama to also be released later this
                            year.

                            In L.A., another Soaptown USA favorite is gearing up for a run in two
                            plays. Judi Evans Luciano, who plays the hilarious Bonnie on "Days Of
                            Our Lives" continues to show her comedic side in the plays dubbed a
                            Double, Double Feature. The plays, entitled `Jesus Christ Super Star
                            Wars' (yup, that's the title!) and `The King and I know what You did
                            last Summer' (LOL!), are spoofs. Well let's let Judi describe them,

                            "It's silly, funny, spoofy, comedy, dancing, just great stuff," she
                            laughs. "I'm really nervous about it but I'm also really excited!"

                            Continuing, "It's so funny and so well written. In the first one, I
                            have a small role as a Tupperware sales person at the Death Star
                            Headquarters! In the second, I play Anna. It's Anna, Maria von
                            Trapp, Annie Warbucks and Rizabella and they all go out for a night
                            on the town to get lax, loaded and laid! They run over the King!
                            They have to figure out what to do with the body, and, all of a
                            sudden, one by one, they get killed and they have to figure it all
                            out. It's just spoofy, funny, fun, fun, fun!"

                            Lucky west coasters can see the plays at the Egyptian Arena Theater
                            in L.A. on March 5, 6, 7, 12, 13 , 14, 19, 20, 21 and 26, 27, 28.

                            feature update on this talented actress in the coming weeks here at

                              DIRTY LAUNDRY (Gossip and rumors)

                              It's one of the most exciting times in the world of Daytime
                              television right now. Causing that excitement is the release of

                              the Daytime Emmy nominations.

                              The major nominees were announced in a five minute ceremony on
                              NBC's `Today' show on March 4th. Actors from all three

                              networks were on hand to announce the big news. I have to sat
                              upfront, I hope this shabby treatment of the nominees reading

                              is not an indication of how NBC will treat the Emmy broadcast itself.
                              Say what you want about ABC Daytime Prez Brian Frons,

                              but he gave the Emmy noms a whole hour on `The View' last year for
                              the exciting news. It was treated as an EVENT. I felt

                              this year's reading of the nominees was just an afterthought.

                              Some may call it sour grapes on NBC's part. After all, they only have
                              two soaps on the air and only snagged one major

                              nomination- I'm sure they knew going in they'd have little to crow
                              about. Wait until next year, when the ceremony moves to

                              CBS-it will be an EVENT again.

                              But on to the nominees. I got 17 out of 35 nominees correct from my
                              earlier pre-nom column. There were some shocks and

                              surprises, but I think in most of the categories there are clear
                              winners. It's the best of the daytime lot, but

                              unfortunately there were several omissions.

                              On to the nominations. I'll break it down and give you my opinion on
                              who can win. There will be two ** next to nominees I

                              predicted would grab a nod from the earlier pre-nom column. Compare
                              my predictions to yours and we will see who wins in the

                              Emmy ceremony May 21st at 9pm on NBC.

                              BEST ACTRESS:
                              The nominees are:
                              ** Maura West - Carly-ATWT
                              **Tamara Braun - Carly-GH
                              Nancy Lee Grahn -Alexis-GH
                              Kim Zimmer - Reva-GL
                              Michelle Stafford - Phyllis-Y&R


                              This category baffles me. Kim Zimmer? Granted she's a wonderful
                              actress, but this nomination is based more on name value

                              than story the past year. I watch "GL" and Zimmer has had little to
                              work with. Nancy Lee Grahn? Love her work. But a

                              nomination for that crazy `Dobson' storyline? Maybe people feel bad
                              for Grahn since "GH" has wasted her talents for the

                              better part of the last year. Michelle Stafford is always a treat,
                              but I think some of her best work has been in the past

                              couple of months. I'd love to see her win just to hear her acceptance
                              speech! However, I really think this category is the

                              battle of the Carlys. Maura West had a great year, but my money is on
                              Tamara Braun. I was never a fan, but she really won

                              me over during the panic room story and has kept me interested in her
                              character since then. Bonus points for being in a

                              story with Maurice Benard's kiss of death Sonny and still being
                              around to talk about it!

                              We could talk endlessly about the people NOT nominated in this
                              category. Where are Finola Hughes (ex-Anna, "AMC")? Eileen

                              Davidson (Ashley, "Y&R")? These two actresses had the finest years of
                              their careers. What a shame, especially for Hughes

                              who may never grace daytime with her presence again.

                              BEST ACTOR:

                              The nominees are:
                              **Roger Howarth - Paul-ATWT
                              **Tony Geary - Luke-GH
                              **Grant Aleksander -Phillip-GL
                              **Eric Braeden - Victor-Y&R
                              Maurice Benard - Sonny-GH
                              Thorsten Kaye - ex-Ian-PC

                              Four predictions correct out of six not bad! Roger Howarth has had a
                              banner year since moving over to "World Turns", but I

                              don't think people in the industry respect him enough to give him an
                              award-yet. Eric Braeden has also done great work and

                              does have the respect of the daytime world, but he is another who has
                              done some superb acting the past few months. Tony

                              Geary is a legend, but I don't think he had the storyline to justify
                              a win. I know Maurice Benard is the STAR of "GH". I

                              don't know why and I think his character is horrible and I'd be very
                              surprised if he is rewarded for it. I don't even know

                              why Thorsten Kaye is on this list. If there was a need to
                              recognize "PC" then it should be Michael Easton's (ex-Caleb) name

                              on this list! Kaye got the sympathy vote because he had no story to
                              back him up in "PC's" waning months. There is no doubt

                              in my mind that this is Grant Aleksander's year. His performance has
                              been riveting and one of the bright lights of "GL",

                              and maybe even all of daytime. Mr. Aleksander should prepare his
                              speech now.. Too think, he was almost fired last year by

                              former EP John Conboy!

                              I have to say, these nominees are not bad. As stated above, I
                              would've liked to see Michael Easton on the list. I also

                              think Vincent Irizarry (David, "AMC") had a great year and has been
                              robbed of a nomination. I don't hold out much hope for

                              Irizarry's future stories at "AMC", as evidenced by what he has done
                              since Finola Hughes left.

                              BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS:

                              The nominees are:
                              **Ilene Kristen -Roxy -OLTL
                              **Kathy Brier - Marcie-OLTL
                              Cady McClain - Rosanna-ATWT
                              Sharon Case - Sharon-Y&R
                              Heather Tom - ex-Victoria-Y&R

                              What a category loaded with talent, despite some glaring omissions!
                              All five actresses are great. I don't think Heather Tom

                              had a great year at "Y&R", but her final few weeks were spellbinding.
                              She is also fresh in voter's minds with her new role

                              on "One Life". Sharon Case is always terrific, but I think again her
                              best work has been of late, so I think her chances of

                              a win are slim. Cady McClain turns everything she touches into gold
                              and I think she could be the underdog of this category.

                              Kathy Brier has been refreshing on One Life", but she's a newbie and
                              that may go against her. Ilene Kristen is a legend.

                              While "One Life" sadly wastes her talent, she still manages to shine
                              in whatever she is given. With twenty-five years of

                              devotion to daytime and having never been nominated before, I think
                              the academy may reward Kristen for her body of work.

                              She's also one of the few comedic actresses in the soap world who
                              doesn't come off as cartoonish. It's a tough category,

                              but my vote goes to Ilene Kristen.

                              BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR:

                              The nominees are:
                              **Rick Hearst - Ric-GH
                              **William deVry - ex-Michael-AMC
                              Ron Raines - Alan-GL
                              Christian LeBlanc - Michael-Y&R
                              James Reynolds - ex-Abe-DOOL

                              I thought this was going to be a hard category to call and I was
                              right. There were just too many wonderful actors on the

                              pre-nom list. Not to kick "Days" fans while they are down, but James
                              Reynolds name does not belong on this list. Reynolds

                              over Bryan Datillo (Lucas, "Days")-I don't think so! Ron Raines is
                              always wonderful-and they let him sing on the show last

                              year-which was a great treat. But he really hasn't had a lot of
                              meaningful story. Chris LeBlanc could teach all actors how

                              to succeed-he never gives a false performance and could surprise us.
                              But, while "Y&R" gets loads of nominations, many in

                              daytime are jealous of the show's success and the actors suffer the
                              backlash. William deVry was scary as "AMC's" baddest

                              bad guy since Will Cortlandt! He's a newcomer and his role lasted
                              barely a year-will they recognize that? Doubtful. The

                              statue should go to Rick Hearst. He continues to add grays to one of
                              the darkest characters to hit Port Charles in years

                              and turn out riveting performances. Couple in that he's a genuinely
                              nice guy and has lots of fans amongst his peers. He's

                              a shoo-in.

                              It's sad that "Passions" continues to be ignored. Ben Masters
                              (Julian) is a masterful actor who could teach others a thing

                              or two. Justin Hartley (Fox) is the brightest newcomer to hit the
                              scenes since Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo, "AMC"). Both should be

                              on the nominee list. Also missing is Tuc Watkins (David, "One Life"),
                              an actor who makes it all look so effortless.

                              There's always next year guys!

                              BEST YOUNGER ACTRESS:

                              The nominees are:
                              **Eden Reigel - Bianca-AMC
                              **Alicia Leigh Willis - Courtney-GH
                              Jennifer Finnigan - ex-Bridget-B&B
                              Lauren Woodland - Britany-Y&R
                              Christel Khalil - Lily-Y&R

                              Another group of talent.The soap world lost the talent of Jennifer
                              Finnigan recently, so this may be the last time to

                              recognize her. But she's won before and it may be time for new blood.
                              Lauren Woodland and Christel Khalil have both had

                              great years and well acted storylines, but this is not their year.
                              People in the industry love Alicia Leigh-Willis and she

                              is always front burner, but she may suffer backlash due to that. It's
                              all a moot point anyways. Is there anyone who doesn't

                              think this is Eden Riegel's year?! Her groundbreaking character is
                              loved by many and her story the past year has been

                              amazing. Her performance has put everyone else to shame and she
                              deserves to win and will!

                              I have to admit, I'm surprised by who is not on this list. Aubrey
                              Dollar (ex-Marina, "GL") was truly amazing the past year.

                              Lindze Leatherman (Georgie, "GH") is showing up some of her older co-
                              stars at `GH" and deserved a nod. And what about

                              Kristin Alderson (Starr, "One Life"), a big talent in a tiny package.

                              BEST YOUNGER ACTOR:

                              The nominees are:
                              **Scott Clifton - Dillon-GH
                              **Chad Brannon - Zander-GH
                              **David Lago - Raul-Y&R
                              Agim Kaba - Aaron-ATWT
                              Brian Presley - ex-Jack-PC

                              Two mistakes out of five from the academy. I guess I can live with
                              that. No offense to Agim Kaba, but the only thing I can

                              see him nominated for is Best Haircut. His name is so out of place on
                              this list. As is Brian Presley's. At the risk of

                              angering the "Port Charles" fans, Presley had very little story in
                              the show's waning days. I'm sure this is a boost to his

                              already over-inflated ego! David Lago is one of the finest actors in
                              a very talented cast, but he has a co-star who

                              over-shadowed him last year (Thad Luckinbill) who didn't even get a
                              pre-nom. Chad Brannon finally got a storyline in

                              2003-only to watch his character be trashed by the writers. He is a
                              talented actor with a promising future. There's just no

                              way he can compete with Scott Clifton. Clifton brought Dillon into
                              town and amazed viewers with his performance. His

                              likeability is off the charts-and when someone of Tony Geary's
                              stature offers to mentor you, the sky's the limit. It's

                              Clifton's award, hands down!

                              I have to say, I'm extremely surprised Matthew Boomer (ex-Ben, "GL")
                              did not make the list. Maybe his powerful performance

                              was too controversial! Also missing is Michael B. Jordan
                              (Reggie, "AMC") and under-rated actor whose sublime performance

                              may have brought him in under the radar.

                              BEST SHOW:

                              The nominees are:

                              **As The World Turns
                              **General Hospital
                              **Young & The Restless
                              Guiding Light
                              Bold & The Beautiful

                              Ok, I got three out of five! Can anyone explain to me how "Guiding
                              Light" made this list? Anyone? I will give them credit

                              for the Phillip story, but everything else pretty much sucked. And
                              they changed history with the Carruthers story. I also

                              can't understand "Bold & Beautiful" on this list. The show has spent
                              the better part of 2003 self-destructing before our

                              eyes and is in the worst shape ever! "Young & Restless" is
                              consistently one of the best shows in daytime. However, the show

                              has had much better years. It deserves a nomination, but not a win.
                              What can I say about "General Hospital" that fans don't

                              say over and over again. I don't think the show is that bad, but I'm
                              in the minority. I will agree it has not been a

                              stellar year for the show when you place it up against "As The World
                              Turns". At the risk of causing head writer Hogan

                              Sheffer's ego to get out of control again, "World Turns" is
                              constantly the best written, best produced, best acted show on

                              the air today. The cast is phoenomanal and it just all gels, The
                              award belongs to "As The World Turns".

                              I do think "Days Of Our Lives" should've gotten some credit, but next
                              year I sense "Days" will sweep the Emmys. I also

                              think "All My Children" deserved a nod simply for the way the show
                              was able to turn around in 2003. From dreck to wonderful

                              in record speed!

                              Well, there you have it. You may agree with my predictions or not.
                              Whatever the case, the night of May 21st will be

                              spellbinding for our friends in the daytime world. Best of luck to
                              all nominated!

                              Sex Scene Fiasco At GL Exec Axed...Right After He Fires Marah

                              On Feb. 20, exactly one week after the Shayne/Marina love scene
                              aired, John Conboy was let go as ep of GL. One reason,

                              according to inside sources, is that the graphic scene-which included
                              a shot of Marina pulling down Shayne's underpants to

                              reveal the bare rear end of his portrayer Marty West-rubbed CBS the
                              wrong way, coming as it did on the heels of the Janet

                              Jackson Super Bowl debacle.
                              "The scenes in question did not represent what we had signed off on,"
                              responds Beth Haiken, director of media relations,

                              CBS. "However,there were other factors in regards to the decision in
                              the change of producers of GL."
                              "We don't take the departure of someone of John's caliber lightly,"
                              says MADD exec-in-charge of production, P&G. "A lot of

                              factors go into a decision or this magnitude. It's not about any one
                              creative decision or incident." She goes on to praise

                              him for his contributions.
                              Barbara Bloom statement, "We are thrilled to name Ellen Wheeler as
                              the new ep of GL....We at CBS are grateful for

                              everything John Conboy accomplished during his tenure. He was
                              instumental in the revitilization of GL & we wish him the

                              best of luck."
                              Conboy had no comment about the sex-scene controversy, but said this
                              about GL. "There is no happy way to leave a show you

                              love & are proud of. The producers, directors, writers, designers,
                              technical staff & the cast have given me new hope &

                              faith in our profession. There is no way to thank them enough for
                              helping me get an audience back to daytime. There's no

                              luck involved It's the talent that's made it possible & so difficult
                              for me to leave. Missing them is a huge

                              understatement. I wish them continued success."

                              In a wild behind-the-scenes twist, John Conboy was let go as ep just
                              minutes after firing Lindsay McKeon [Marah].
                              "I'm so upset that I can't even begin to tell you," responded Bradley
                              Cole [Jeffrey], in between sets with his band on Feb.

                              21 in New Orleans. "She's such a fun & good actress. She's my leading
                              lady right now, & to lose her kills me. I was as

                              upset about that [as I was about John]. They've written a great
                              little story for us. We were just starting to get into some

                              stuff that can interest people. I love the story with her & love her
                              to death. I'm going to miss her."
                              P&G said the decision was story-line dictated, although setside
                              sources say McKeon ruffled too many feathers. At press time

                              there were no immediate plans to recast the role.

                                Usually new material airs 8 weeks after..so that would be the first
                                full week of July...but since he's on the staff already, it's
                                obvious that new story ideas are being planted. I think the Dinah

                                Michelle is blown up this Friday!

                                Michelle follows Danny to the warehouse where he "kills" Eden, not
                                with a gun, but with a bomb. Michelle is in the warehouse, but Danny
                                doesn't know this. The bomb goes off, and Michelle's life is forever
                                changed.

                                Danny's plan was to fake Eden's death and put her in the witness

                                It backfires when Michelle is caught in the warehouse expolosion
                                and Tony rescues her.

                                Michelle goes into surgery, but comes out in a coma.

                                Eden can't leave without saying goodbye.

                                While looking for Michelle, Danny encounters his worst nightmare.

                                Soapdom

                                It's a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time for
                                Michelle. Will she escape in time?

                                Danny must do all he can to preserve the secret -- even at the cost
                                of losing those he loves.

                                This week begins as the unthinkable occurs. Danny, on Salerno's
                                orders, detonates the bomb to kill Eden. But Eden is not the only
                                one at risk. What has Danny done that will impact the rest of his
                                life?

                                In the meantime, Bill's romantic dinner is interrupted with bad
                                news. Is it word about Eden's fate? While back at the scene of the
                                explosion, Tony makes a heroic rescue. Who does he pull from the
                                rubble?

                                Speaking of Bill and Tony, this week will find them bonding, as
                                Jeffrey presents new identity papers to Eden. Will she be permitted
                                to see Bill even one more time? Shortly thereafter, Vinnie makes an
                                appearance at Eden's "funeral." What's he doing there? More
                                importantly, will Eden do something rash just to see Bill?

                                While at the same time, Bill avoids a confrontation with Danny at
                                the hospital. Shortly thereafter, Danny helps Bill out. In what way?

                                Casting Call

                                Posted by Newsgirl at the RRR Board:

                                It looks like a new teen is arriving in SF. That, or a recast.

                                A casting call has been put out for "Jake," an 18-year-old who's an
                                angry young man. He's recently found out he was adopted and plans to
                                not only find his real parents but to also "wreak havoc" in their
                                lives.

                                The audition script is a confrontation between Jake and his real
                                father. FYI, the character description and script are almost
                                identical to the ones put out when Sandy/Jonathan was first being
                                cast. So, this could be a recast or possibly, is the real Jonathan
                                still out there?

                                p.s.: I should have added that, in the first audition script, the
                                character was interacting with his newly-found mother, a thinly-
                                disguised Reva.

                                A big night for Daytime Emmys
                                By CAROLYN HINSEY
                                NY Daily News

                                The 31st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards air live tonight from Radio City
                                Music Hall at 9 o'clock on NBC, with former "General Hospital" star
                                Vanessa Marcil as host.

                                Marcil, who now stars on the NBC hit "Las Vegas," won an Outstanding
                                Supporting Actress Emmy last year for her return stint as "GH's"
                                troubled Brenda.

                                Presenters include Deidre Hall (Marlena, "Days of Our Lives"), Susan
                                Lucci (Erica, "All My Children"), Jack Wagner (Nick, "The Bold and
                                the Beautiful") and Tyler Christopher (Nikolas, "GH") - to whom
                                Marcil was once engaged. Talk about a soap opera...

                                Nominees are judged on their work based on two episodes.

                                It's always a horse race, but here are some fairly informed
                                predictions:

                                Outstanding Lead Actor nominees are Grant Aleksander
                                (Phillip, "Guiding Light"), Maurice Benard (Sonny, "GH"), Eric
                                Braeden (Victor, "The Young and the Restless"), Anthony Geary
                                (Luke, "GH"), Roger Howarth (Paul, "As the World Turns") and
                                Thorsten Kaye (ex-Ian, "Port Charles," debuting today as Zach
                                on "AMC").

                                Braeden has the inside track, having submitted powerful consecutive
                                episodes of Victor dreaming of seeing his father, Albert, after 40
                                years (with Braeden playing both roles), and then actually seeing
                                him. George Kennedy, an Oscar winner in 1968, played Albert.

                                His biggest competition will be Benard, who won last year. He
                                offered scenes of Sonny close to a nervous breakdown - haunted by
                                the death of his pregnant first wife, Lily - and then shooting his
                                current wife, Carly, by accident as she gave birth to their baby.

                                Outstanding Lead Actress nods went to Tamara Braun (Carly, "GH"),
                                Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis, "GH"), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, "Y&R"),
                                Maura West (Carly, "ATWT") and Kim Zimmer (Reva, "GL").

                                Look for Stafford to take it, with scenes of Phyllis squaring off
                                with Jack, running into his ex, Diane, and then spying her long-lost
                                son, Daniel, back in town.

                                In the supporting categories, Cady McClain (Rosanna, "ATWT") leads
                                the competition, consisting of Kathy Brier (Marcie, "One Life to
                                Live"), Sharon Case (Sharon, "Y&R"), Ilene Kristen (Roxy, "OLTL")
                                and Heather Tom (ex-Victoria, "Y&R," now playing Kelly on "OLTL").

                                On the men's side, Christian LeBlanc (Michael, "Y&R") should beat
                                William de Vry (ex-Michael Cambias, "AMC"), Rick Hearst (Ric, "GH"),
                                Ron Raines (Alan, "GL") and James Reynolds (ex-Abe, "Days of Our
                                Lives").

                                The Outstanding Younger Actress award should go to Eden Riegel
                                (Bianca, "AMC"). Chad Brannon (ex-Zander, "GH") or newcomer Scott
                                Clifton (Dillon, "GH") will take home the Outstanding Younger Actor
                                prize.

                                And I predict that "The Young and the Restless" will upset reigning
                                champ "As the World Turns" for Outstanding Drama Series.

                                the warehouse & that she is unconsious, to Danny's shock & horror.
                                Danny tries to see her but she is whisked to the OR for emergency

                                Jeffrey's plans. Think Danny & Tony are not convincing as mobsters.

                                many characters but that a stranger should not be the glue that

                                Tony saves Michelles life. Danny faked Eden's death & she'll be
                                heading into the witness protection program. Tony rescues Michelle
                                from the debris & fire & rushes her to the hospital, where Danny
                                learns the horrible truth.
                                Danny sees Tony at the hosital & he is very angry. Tony leads Danny
                                to the ER cubicle where Michelle is lying on the table unconsious.
                                Danny is in shock & feels responsible for this happening to
                                Michelle. Michelle is rushed into surgery. The good news is that she
                                made it out of surgery & the bad news is she is in a coma & no one
                                knows if she will wake up again.

                                club Tony finds Michelle snooping around. While Danny lures Eden to
                                the warehouse & sends her into his inner office, then sets the timer
                                on a detonation device. He leaves just as Michelle enters. The timer
                                counts down & the building explodes with Michelle in it.

                                Jordan almost tells Jennifer the truth about his marriage.
                                Carly stops Jordan and reminds him that Cabot's safety is at stake.
                                Jennifer goes off on Jordan.
                                Rosanna seeks Carly's advice.
                                Rosanna reveals to Carly that the mastermind pulling her strings is
                                James Stenbeck. "Rosanna has not been her usual, clear-thinking,
                                hard-nosed self. The desperation to get her child back has caused
                                her to not ask questions. She knew that she was making a deal with
                                the devil, but she was also told that if she didn't marry Jordan,
                                the baby would 'disappear' completely, which was a veiled threat.
                                So, it's completely a maternal instinct," says Cady McClain
                                (Rosanna) in SOD.
                                James's deal requres that Jordan, who is pressuring Rosanna to
                                resolve this mess immediately, must also adopt Cabot.
                                Jordan is reluctant to sign adoption papers tying him to Rosanna for
                                2 years, but finally gives in when he sees Rosanna cradle Cabot.
                                However, Rosanna must come up with another arrangement--fast.
                                Rosanna contacts Annabelle Fettle to set up a meeting with James,
                                but Annabelle refuses.
                                James refuses to meet with Rosanna to explain, so Rosanna turns to
                                Paul. "Now that he has saved Cabot, all is forgiven," says McClain.
                                Paul gets Rosanna in to visit James. "I think he likes Rosanna,"
                                reveals Anthony Herrera (James) in SOW.
                                Rosanna begs James to remove Jordan's name from the adoption papers.
                                James reveals that Jordan is Cabot's biological father. "She thinks
                                that she is making deals to get control of the situation, and she
                                keeps losing control, which is very frustrating," sighs McClain.
                                Rosanna and Paul decide to keep the secret to themselves while they
                                figure out their next move.

                                Brown (ex-Carly), As the World Turns has added three more stars to
                                its cast list. Sunset Beach alum Christina Chambers (ex-Maria) will

                                actress Lesli Kay. Chambers most recently appeared as Jaclyn Smith

                                to Oakdale alone. Robert Leeshock (ex-Eddie, GL) has been cast as
                                Alan Drake, Sierra's new husband. His debut is May 28.

                                something else," cracks The Young and the Restless's Jeanne Cooper
                                (Katherine) with a hearty chuckle. The veteran actress, who's

                                more intense. The show itself has seen me through a lot of ups and
                                downs in my own life," Cooper comments, noting real-life struggles
                                with alcoholism and divorce. She also credits her longevity to a
                                simple motto. "I've never considered myself the star of anything.
                                The vehicle that I am in is the star, and I am just one of the
                                lights in its tree."

                                But this grande dame confesses she's ready for a little sparkle of
                                her own. "I've had five daytime nominations, two in prime time — I
                                think I can be selfish enough to say I'd like to win an acting
                                award. I felt twice I should have had it, and a couple of people who
                                got it believed it also. And it was nice they were just as
                                disappointed for me." Cooper's only hesitation in accepting the
                                prestigious honor is that it can just happen once. "There's no
                                second Lifetime Achievement Award," she roars. "And as our [co-
                                executive producer] Jack Smith once said, 'If The Young and the
                                Restless is going to be around for another 100 years, I bet Jeanne
                                will be around too'."

                                Don Hastings (Bob), Days of Our Lives' Frances Reid (Alice) and John

                                ODDS AND ENDS
                                Guiding Light's return to the mob has made at least one of its
                                viewers happy, its very own Stephanie Gatschet (Tammy). "As a fan of
                                the show, it's one of my favorite storylines to watch," the
                                blossoming starlet told TV Guide Online after presenting at the
                                Daytime Creative Craft Awards in New York City." Gatschet is happily
                                taking her alter ego to the bad side, even if the actress can't base
                                Tammy's motives on real-life experiences. "I'm actually a good girl
                                in real life," she confesses. "But Tammy has to go through this
                                phase to get back to being good." When Gatschet's not keeping tabs
                                on Springfield's underworld, the Philly transplant can often be
                                found at New York City's Animal Haven. "I spend a lot of time there
                                walking dogs and hanging out with the cats," she says. That's where
                                she found the love of her life, her Chihuahua. "He comes with me to
                                the set almost every day," Gatschet exclaims. "We just have to get
                                him on the show now." Giving truth to the rumor that owners start to
                                look like their animals, especially when they dress alike, Gatschet
                                says, "We actually went to an event together and had matching
                                Lacoste shirts with the alligator. His was lime green and mine was
                                blue. And I'm able to laugh at myself about that."

                                MY POV: With the broadcast of the 9/11 hearings this week, my
                                findings were sporadic, but here are just a few random thoughts I
                                had about daytime's doings:
                                It's a good thing Sharon's the one dealing with a very much alive
                                Cameron on The Young and the Restless. If it were me, I would have
                                really killed him just to make up for all my suffering when I
                                thought he was dead. And just how long does it take to get Greg
                                Rikaart (Kevin) into that bloody face makeup? Ewwww.

                                DIRTY LAUNDRY (Rumors/Gossip)

                                OK soap fans, another week with LOTS of BIG news. But first I'm
                                going to get on my soapbox for a bit about some B.S. some not-so-
                                innocent Internet posters are flinging around!

                                I think I have the greatest readers ANYWHERE-that is a given. Almost
                                everyone who reads this column knows we recently switched The
                                Steamroom message board over to a pay-to-post board. It really has
                                made the whole experience of the board more enjoyable for the people
                                who have paid to join-and I'm sure if you ask ANYONE who is a board
                                member they would agree. Sure, board members get special perks, but
                                they are paying so they get more, it's common sense. My weekly
                                column is still, for the moment, available at no charge to everyone.

                                As I approach my second anniversary here at Soaptown USA, I have
                                grown accustomed to the slings and arrows anonymous Internet posters
                                like to aim in my direction. It comes with the job and I don't take
                                any of it personally. However, when I get wind of a person out and
                                out lying about something then running around, not only tarnishing
                                my name but the reputation of THIS site, I will not sit by quietly.

                                Many know that I don't check out other sites, I wish them well, but
                                I don't have the time. Only one site really irks me and they know
                                who they are! However, I was emailed a post put up at Soap Zone by
                                someone named Marilyn/Kara insinuating that they joined the
                                Steamroom board and never got a password and we kept her money and
                                refused to respond to her emails, well I had to speak up! Outright
                                LIES by this person.

                                First off, this poster claims to have emailed me. A LIE! Yes, this
                                person did pay to join, but she NEVER inquired about her membership
                                to anyone here at Soaptown USA and certainly NOT me. SHE was the one
                                not following several simple rules and SHE created her own problem.
                                Had she ACTUALLY emailed us, we would've solved her problem
                                immediately. But she went on to rally the troops at Soap Zone (a
                                site I have always respected!) to get the word out we were thieves
                                here at Soaptown USA. Another LIE! EVERY person that pays to join
                                our board gets access to the board. Have there been password
                                problems? Absolutely-and always because a poster skipped something
                                in the process of registering. While I don't handle memberships, I
                                am ALWAYS aware of new ones and if ANYONE emailed me about a
                                problem, I turn it over to someone to help them and the issue is
                                solved. It's really that simple! This person has received a refund
                                and was asked to find a new board to join. Had she actually done ALL
                                the things she claimed, you wouldn't be reading this now! I'm not
                                infallible, but if I'm not responsible for something and you feel
                                the need to trash me and the site I write for, I WILL respond!!

                                What irks me the most about this is how people will believe anyone
                                without any proof. Am I over-reacting? I don't think so. There are
                                people here at Soaptown USA other than myself who work EXTREMELY
                                hard to put this site together on a weekly basis for fans. They do
                                it for the love of daytime-they get no financial rewards. It's not
                                fair that certain people who are jealous or hold a grudge or have
                                permanent PMS (female AND male!) have to cause trouble to make their
                                sad little lives complete. It's that 1% factor! I always have stated
                                that 99% of daytime viewers are TERRIFIC! The problem we have is NO
                                ONE stands up to those 1% of troublemakers, BUT I WILL! I'm not out
                                to win popularity contests, I'm here to provide readers with a
                                service to hopefully entertain them and provide them information on
                                a subject they want to know more about.

                                I am sure that this poster at Soap Zone read something I wrote,
                                disagreed with me and thought that by lashing out at me would make
                                her feel better. It's juvenile. It's ridiculous. And it makes
                                daytime fans look like nuts, and I know 99% ARE NOT!

                                I refer back to last week's Soapboy on the Soapbox regarding this
                                issue. Fans get carried away, period. (BTW, I send out a BIG apology
                                to MOST of the Ric/Liz fans out there. I used that fan base as an
                                example and it certainly started a firestorm. MOST-not all-of the
                                responses I received were insightful, to the point and respectful. I
                                don't ask anyone to agree with me on a Soapbox matter, just try to
                                see the point!)

                                The bottom line is if you hear something like this and you question
                                it, anyone here at Soaptown USA can get you an answer. My email is
                                ALWAYS open and in a situation like this I WILL respond or get
                                someone to take care of the situation and get back to you!

                                OK, I'm off the Soapbox!

                                On to other BIG news……..A major rumor proved true this week as the
                                BIG daytime switch continues. Two weeks ago, CBS nabbed Gina Tognoni
                                (ex-Kelly, "One Life") for the role of Dinah on "Guiding Light".
                                Last week, ABC stole CBS star Lesli Kay (Molly, "World Turns") to
                                take over the role of Lois on "General Hospital." This week, CBS
                                gets back in the game signing former "GH" star Sarah Brown (ex-
                                Carly) to a short-term role on "As The World Turns".

                                Brown was a major daytime player in her years as Carly on "GH"-and
                                an Emmy winner to boot! The actress left the show to give Hollywood
                                a try and was doing pretty well, winning guest roles on several
                                prime time series, including `Dragnet'. Rumors started percolating a
                                few weeks back that Brown wanted to make a return to soaps, but was
                                looking for something that wasn't long-term and preferably the East
                                coast. Brown was up for the role of Dinah on "GL", but was not
                                anxious to sign a lengthy deal and ultimately passed on the role.

                                The buzz that Brown would be taking up residence at "As The World
                                Turns" began almost immediately when it was announced Tognoni
                                snagged the role of Dinah on "GL". So what do we know about the
                                role? I'm told it's a six month deal-with an option to continue,
                                much like Cady McClain's (Rosanna) when she first joined the show.
                                With an actress of this magnitude, Brown will be involved in a front-
                                burner summer storyline with several of Oakdale's biggest players,
                                most notably Roger Howarth (Paul). The show is keeping her
                                character's identity under wraps, but sources tell me she is NOT a
                                recast for the role of Molly. We will first see Brown in early July.
                                Brown joins an already impressive roster of top-notch daytime talent
                                at "World Turns" and I hear head writer Hogan Sheffer can't wait to
                                write for Brown!
                                Ok ABC it's your move!

                                Following up on some of the Fall pilots starring former daytimers,
                                looks like NBC has picked up `HUB' starring Heather Locklear and
                                Paul Leyden (Simon, "World Turns"). Word is it will air Wednesdays
                                at 8pm. Sources also tell me that ABC is very high on `Desperate
                                Wives', the show written by "GH" co-head writer Chuck Pratt, and it
                                will make it on to the Fall schedule, possibly Wednesdays at 10pm. I
                                should have more news in future columns.

                                Mark this Friday, May 21st in your daily planner folks. At 9pm on
                                NBC will be the Daytime Emmy awards. Tune into Soap Net at 7:30pm
                                for the `red carpet' arrivals. Your very own Soapboy will be on the

                                B&B

                                With ratings slipping, I'm told CBS is demanding some major changes
                                to shore up the ratings. A cast purge is on deck as rumor has it
                                head writer Bradley Bell may turn his planned summer murder mystery
                                into a serial killer whodunit. My readers are already aware of one
                                actor who may be involved in this plot, but I've heard a popular
                                actress may be on the chopping block and the show may use this story
                                to ditch a character that ISNT working well and could turn out to be
                                the killer. Sounds great if it happens!………………..Nancy Sloan is back
                                at Katie, Brooke's sister, on May 28th.

                                No surprise here-Mark Pinter is out as Brad Green next month……….Will
                                Danny kill Eden? Or will Michelle pay the price? Keep in mind, Nancy
                                St. Alban's (Michelle) contract is up soon……..Sources are telling me
                                the show IS recasting Shayne as a Shayne/Marina/Sandy triangle is on
                                tap for summer……..That major character possibly on the way back that
                                I mentioned last week? I hear new head writer David Kreizman has
                                pitched a story involving this major character from the past that
                                will be steeped in the show's history. It will tie up a story thread
                                never properly dealt with long ago, while showing respect to a
                                character considered one of the greatest to ever land in
                                Springfield. It will also utilize several vets. And the kicker? The
                                character will not be recast out of respect to the actor who played
                                him originally, although the story will play BIG. I've heard other
                                details and this could work-and it would be a valentine to
                                loyal "GL" viewers. Stay tuned for more details!

                                Raul into Mac's arms? Intriguing questions soon to be
                                answered……………..Kevin takes a few more steps on his road to

                                Nick presses Brooke to go ahead with the wedding in order for him
                                to legalize his adoption of Hope.

                                When Brooke has anxiety attacks threatening her baby, Massimo
                                summons her old friend, psychiatrist James Warwick, to help.
                                When James arrives to meet Massimo, he finds more than just the
                                shipping tycoon and wonders what Mass's agenda is.
                                After James counsels her, Brooke decides to accept Nick's proposal.
                                Eric is stunned to learn that Stephanie's friendship with and
                                acceptance of Brooke is a lie to get Brooke out of Ridge's life.
                                When Ridge finds out about his mother's lie, he's more determined
                                than ever to win Brooke back.
                                Eric promotes Thorne to President of Forrester Creations just as
                                Ridge decides to come back to work there.
                                Amber learns Hector's secret, that Samantha is Caitlin's mother.
                                Due to Priscilla's lies, there is a great distance between Sam and
                                Hector, as each one thinks the other turned their back on what they
                                shared.
                                Jackie's actions make Massimo suspicious.
                                Jackie is titillated by Deacon's infatuation with her.

                                Massimo summons James Warwick to help Brooke through troubling
                                times - but is Mass acting on the up and up in bringing the
                                psychiatrist to help her?
                                Brooke moves ahead with plans for her wedding.
                                The story intended to put Eric into a scandalous situation
                                involving a new character has been scrapped. It was oroginally
                                intended for new intern Caitlin to come on to Eric, and to have Eric
                                respond, but executive producer/head writer Brad Bell felt that was
                                going too far.
                                Sources state that Megan may be getting a storyline in the near

                                RUMOR: Massimo hasn't seen the last of Sheila, who returns with a
                                much older Diana (their daughter) to Los Angeles.
                                An additional related rumor to this states that Sheila will return
                                to THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS with her daughter in tow. According to
                                this rumor, Sheila reportedly will cause trouble for old nemesis
                                Lauren, and her daughter will become involved with Lauren's son
                                Scotty. In addition, Massimo reportedly will visit Genoa City to
                                track down Sheila. As with all items labeled RUMOR in this section,
                                this is unconfirmed.

                                As Nick and Brooke's wedding day draws closer, they continue with
                                their plans. Nick is awestruck when Brooke shows him her wedding
                                dress, and despite her revelation that it was designed by Eric, Nick
                                tells her that if she wants to wear it, she should wear it. Nick is
                                still worried that Ridge will try to come between him and Brooke,
                                and as it gets closer and closer to his wedding day, he wonders why
                                he still hasn't heard anything from his half-brother. Brooke,
                                meanwhile, receives a shocking proposal from Massimo -- he wants her
                                to return Logan Designs to Sally. Although it goes against
                                everything in her, she agrees.

                                While Deacon prays for Massimo not to shoot him, Massimo warns him
                                that people who cross him don't end up in the right places. Massimo
                                suddenly turns the tables by lowering the gun and telling Deacon he
                                needed to prove to himself that he could trust him. He asks Deacon
                                to do him a favor -- he wants him to spy on Jackie! Deacon
                                reluctantly agrees, but warns Jackie that Massimo doesn't trust her.

                                Ridge decides that the only way he can get Brooke back in his life
                                is by making his half-brother look bad, so he begins hunting for
                                some sort of dastardly secret from Nick's past that he can use in
                                order to tear Nick and Brooke apart. There are no limits for Ridge;
                                he will do anything he has to in order to break up Brooke and Nick.

                                Hector and Samantha continue work their way back to each other, and

                                to take the future by storm.

                                  Well, I hadn't THOUGHT so... not as sure now.

                                  Fall previews from SOW 9/7/04

                                  MADD previews

                                  Dinah and Cassie finally come face to face. "There is a big event on
                                  Sept 3. It affects a lot of futures. Then Sept 7 is

                                  another big day. Sept 20 is an even bigger day."

                                  "Phillip ups the ante on Sept 9, which is a big straw that serves to
                                  help break the camel's back." Harley and Bill set a trap

                                  for Phillip, while Gus forces Alan to choose sides. Beth Ehlers'
                                  upcoming dual role will be a departure for both Ehlers and

                                  Harley. "It doesn't start until around Sept. 23. There is a lot of
                                  stuff that happens before then."

                                  "Tony vows to go after the woman he wants." Sept 13 is a big day.

                                  "Dangerous Lizzie" is back on Sept. 7. "She gets herself in deeper
                                  with an interesting character on Sept 14."

                                  Reva is front-and-center as she snoops into Sandy's past. "Sept. 15
                                  is a big day for her. She doesn't get the full story

                                  until October." Other people start to catch on before that point,
                                  however.


                                  Olivia: Back with a Vengeance

                                  Olviia is the odd woman out when Bill and Harley hatch their plot to
                                  infiltrate Spaulding on GL.

                                  "She doesn't know [about Harley's disguise] initially," sets up
                                  Crystal Chappell (Olivia). "She tends up going off by herself

                                  to get some more signatures from Spaulding stockholders, gaining more
                                  clout and power from them. When seh comes back, Bill

                                  doesn't tell her about it just yet. I imagine he will at some point.
                                  And if Harley can contribute in a good way--and she

                                  knows Harley's objective is the same as hers--then great."

                                  Who's more hell-bent on revenge--Olivia (toward Phillip) or Harley
                                  (toward Gus)? "Who knows?" shrugs Chappell. "They are both

                                  strong willed women, but Olivia is much more vengeful, " she
                                  cackles. "Maybe this is a new color of Harley. Either way, those

                                  men should be careful."

                                  Bill may want to be careful, too, if he gets caught between the two
                                  women, but Chappell insists a triangle isn't brewing.

                                  "She's trying not to get involved with Bill, so if she saw Harley and
                                  Bill together, she probably would welcome it. 'Good,

                                  get him out of my hair.' If they go in that direction then yes,
                                  Harley and Olivia would go from being the weirdest of friends

                                  to being the weirdest of enemies."

                                  More from SOD, Cassie & Dinah

                                  Posted by Judy at The Springfield Update


                                  From SOD 9/7/04: Cassie Sees Dinah!

                                  After weeks of lurking in the shadows, Dinah finally reveals herself
                                  to Cassie. "Cassie is as stunned as Dinah is," previews

                                  Gina Tognoni (Dinah) about the characters' first face-to-face meeting
                                  in more than five years.

                                  Choosing this particular moment wasn't part of Dinah's plan. Turns
                                  out, Cassie and RJ get trapped in a burning barn, and

                                  Dinah takes advantage of the situation. "To Dinah, it was a nice
                                  surprise, " explains Tognoni. "Unfortunatley, the

                                  circumstances were not what she anticipated, so she's knocked a
                                  little off-center."

                                  Of course, there's no time to talk about the past. Both women are
                                  focused on getting RJ to safety. "This circumstance of the

                                  fire supercedes everything that has happened in their shared
                                  history," notes the actress. "in the sense that they aren't

                                  going to talk about things--right now."

                                  Yep, that's what the future is for, and Dinah plans to make the most
                                  of it. "Dinah has been gathering information that she

                                  can hold against Jeffrey, Edmund and Cassie," hints Tognoni. "She's
                                  going to use every bit of it."

                                  Edmund hears Cassie saying Jeffrey's name in her sleep and accuses
                                  her of wanting Jeffrey.

                                  Dinah pretends to poison herself and is thrilled when Jeffrey
                                  responds.

                                  Harley and Gus promise to reunite.

                                  Mel tells Michelle she'll only be able to open her club if Tony isn't

                                  the first thing I thought was: Othello!

                                  It makes sense: Edmund is Othello. Dinah is Iago. Cassie is
                                  Desdemona. Jeffrey is the guy Desdemona was accused of having an

                                  affair with (sorry, my mind draws a blank on the character's name).
                                  Dinah is going to destroy Cassie through Edmund, with

                                  Edmund doing the deed. And, of course, we all know who'll come save
                                  the day.

                                  I'm sure I'm wrong, but...

                                  This is a post I read on the Bayberry board. It's from a supposed
                                  insider named Mark. I thought I'd post it and then see if

                                  this fairly detailed spoiler comes true. Let's see.
                                  ================================

                                  In Luther's Corners Church, Lily pays respects to Carly , while we
                                  stay with Holden and Molly. She asks him if he's okay. He

                                  sort of nods. She asks if he wants to get some food or maybe a drink.
                                  Holden says he has to get Luke home. Molly nods. Well,

                                  if he changes his mind. Now Lily is there: Changes his mind about
                                  what? Holden and Molly look at Lily. Molly says she should

                                  say her goodbyes to Carly. Molly moves off under Lily's scathing
                                  eyes. Lily looks at Holden. How are you? He shrugs, says

                                  he's had better days. Lily: Me too. She looks back at Molly. Holden
                                  says, I told her. Lily is stunned. About…? Holden says he

                                  told Molly that he admitted the kiss to Lily. Lily swallows hard.
                                  Okay. Holden doesn't say anything else. Lily moves off.

                                  Lucy demands with more urgency: Tell me what it is! Dusty: Proof…
                                  that it was your father, not Alan Drake, who was in league

                                  with Wade Larsen. Lucy says she doesn't understand. Dusty was going
                                  out of town on business! Dusty admits he lied. He went

                                  back to Reno. And he found that receipt left behind by the kidnapper,
                                  Wade Larsen. Lucy looks at the paper. What is it…?

                                  Dusty says it proves that less than two hours after your mom gave
                                  Craig 2 million bucks … the same amount ended up in the

                                  kidnapper's off-shore account. Lucy trembles. She looks up at Dusty
                                  with pleading eyes. Has Dusty told the police? He shakes

                                  his head. No, and I won't. That's why I put it in your hands, Lucy …
                                  it's up to you what you want to do with it.

                                  In the church, the crowd has thinned out. Craig appears and asks
                                  Emily if she's seen Lucy. Emily says she thinks Lucy's

                                  outside with Dusty. Lucy doesn't understand. Why is Dusty making her
                                  decide what to do with this? Dusty says he was between a

                                  rock and hard place. He wanted to just let the whole thing drop,
                                  wishes he could have allow Alan to take the blame for

                                  helping the kidnappers – because he knows that what Lucy wanted. But
                                  what good would their … friendship be … if it were built

                                  on a gigantic lie? He had to find the truth. And he has. But he won't
                                  take this to the cops. He won't be the one who puts

                                  Craig behind bars. He promises to keep it to himself and not even
                                  tell Lucy's mother, because Sierra would not spare him.

                                  Lucy goes, But what should I do…?! We see Dusty look at her with
                                  sympathy, but offer no answer. Lucy is about to press him,

                                  but now a bunch of people are coming out of the church. The memorial
                                  service is over and the last of the mourners are

                                  leaving. She turns away from Dusty as Craig arrives. He takes Lucy's
                                  hand and busses her cheek, and we see her tense up ever

                                  so much. Craig steps back and sizes her up. Hey, are you okay, honey?
                                  With the damning bank receipt in her folder hand, Lucy

                                  trembles as she says, I have to talk to you, Daddy. And it's really
                                  important.

                                  Craig says Lucy has him worried, she looks like she's got the weight
                                  of the world on her shoulders. Before Lucy can say

                                  anything, Lily appears at Craig's side. Can Craig give her a ride
                                  home? Lucy and Craig share a look. Craig tells Lucy he's

                                  going to see Lily home. Can they talk later? She nods, almost
                                  relieved that she's able to put it off. Lily asks Lucy what she

                                  thought of Craig's eulogy to Jack. Was it the most moving and heart-
                                  felt tribute you've ever heard? Craig's like, Oh, well,

                                  you know, I just spoke from the heart. Lucy fumbles for a compliment,
                                  then looks back and sees that Dusty has moved off.

                                  Craig asks her if she wants to ride with him and Lily and Lucy shakes
                                  her head. She'll see him later at Cal's. Craig nods.

                                  But as he goes off, Lucy says, Daddy? Make sure you're home when I
                                  get there, okay? I really need to talk to you … it's

                                  important. Craig stares soberly at her. Then he smiles: You've
                                  changed your mind about Williams, I'll bet. She stealthily

                                  crumbles up the damning receipt, as she says, Something like that.
                                  Craig says he'll see her later. Lucy watches Craig and

                                  Lily go off. Then she un-crumples the receipt and stares hard at it.
                                  It has to be a mistake … it can't be true… Lucy goes

                                  off.

                                  Craig starts to engine, but Lily asks him to wait for moment. Off
                                  Craig's look, she says she just wants to make sure Holden

                                  is okay. He's taken Jack's death really hard, and she just wants to
                                  see if he's all right. Craig is sort of baffled: would

                                  you rather have Holden take you back to the house? Lily doesn't
                                  answer. She stares out the window.

                                  Holden and Molly pause coming out of the church. We see Holden scour
                                  the parking lot. Molly knows that he's looking for Lily.

                                  Holden admits that's what he was doing. Molly gets emotional, says
                                  she's got Holden feeling guilty about being with her –

                                  that's the last thing she wanted to accomplish. He turns to her. He's
                                  sorry if he's made her feel uncomfortable, he didn't

                                  mean to. She knows that. But maybe they should just say their
                                  goodbyes right here and walk away knowing they did … the noble

                                  thing. Holden holds her eyes. Is that what Molly wants? Goodbyes? She
                                  shakes her head. No, that's not what she wants at all.

                                  He smiles. Okay, then. He leans down and kisses her cheek. She smiles
                                  back. Okay, then. They walk off.

                                  Craig watches Lily's face as she sinks back in the seat. Okay, let's
                                  go. But does Craig mind if she hangs at Cal's with him –

                                  she doesn't want to go home just yet. Craig says he gets the distinct
                                  feeling that Lily isn't telling him something. She

                                  doesn't respond. He strokes her hair. He says Lily knows she can
                                  share anything with him. Lily looks at him, then bursts into

                                  tears. I'm losing my husband… Craig is taken aback.

                                  In DUSTY'S SUITE, he tosses off his suit jacket and pours a drink. He
                                  knocks it back. He catches a glimpse of himself in a

                                  mirror. He studies his own face. He says: You broke her heart, you
                                  SOB. Then he hauls back the empty glass like he might

                                  shatter his own image, but then there's a knock on the door. He opens
                                  to Lucy. She's emotional. She holds up the damning bank

                                  receipt. I don't want this. Don't make me responsible for this! She
                                  breaks down in Dusty's arms.

                                  At S PLACE, Craig settles some tea in front of weepy Lily, and she
                                  thanks him too much, and he points out that she's been

                                  such a trooper for him, he relishes the chance to be as good friend
                                  to her. Now why doesn't Lily take a deep breath, and

                                  relax, and tell Craig what's going on with her and Holden. Lily
                                  sighs. She doesn't know how else to put it, so she'll just

                                  say it. Holden kissed her. Craig goes, Excuse me? Lily explains that
                                  Holden and Molly shares a kiss. Craig asks how she

                                  knows, and Lily says Holden just came out and told her. Craig is
                                  stunned. Holden did that? She nods. She says they both

                                  acknowledged that there's a distance between them. It's been there
                                  since Rose died. And neither one of them knows what to do

                                  about it, except they both know they love each other. Lily sets the
                                  cup down. And then earlier, at the memorial service, it

                                  was almost like she was … intruding on him. Maybe that's not right,
                                  maybe it's just the way she perceived it. But, O Craig,

                                  she can't stand the thought of losing him. Craig comforts. Then Craig
                                  says he knows he's not exactly the first person you

                                  think of when you think of people to take marital advice from … (she
                                  smiles, touches his hand) … but if she doesn't mind him

                                  offering up a little advice…? She shakes her head no, go ahead. Craig
                                  says it seems to him that the first thing you have to

                                  do is corner Molly and let her know that if she so much as breathes
                                  near Holden again you're going to beat her into

                                  hamburger.

                                  Luke comes through the door with Holden. Holden instructs Luke to
                                  tell the babysitter he'll be right back after he drops off

                                  Molly at the Lakeview. Luke nods, says he's going to check on his
                                  sisters. He goes off. Holden closes the door, turns to

                                  Molly. She thinks she'd better get going, she doesn't want to be here
                                  if Lily shows up. Holden nods, says he'll take her back

                                  to the Lakeview now. Molly reacts. No, she didn't mean that Holden
                                  should take her home. His kids need him. Luke is upset,

                                  and the girls will be worried about him. He says the babysitter is
                                  still here and he's coming right back as soon as he drops

                                  off Molly. Come on, don't call a cab, that's silly. Molly stops him.
                                  Listen, Holden, maybe it best if you don't take me home.

                                  Off his look, she says the truth is she has very little control over
                                  her feelings right now. She knows "right from wrong,"

                                  it's still etched on her brain somewhere, but she still can't control
                                  how she feels. And she thinks it best that Holden stay

                                  with his kids and let Molly get home on her own. It's safer that way
                                  … for both of us. On Holden—

                                  Dusty settles Lucy into a chair and brings her some water. She had a
                                  chance earlier to have it out with her dad – to show him

                                  the receipt and demand an explanation, but Lily showed up and asked
                                  her dad to take her home. And Lucy was relieved. How is

                                  she supposed to confront her dad about this? Dusty's sorry he dumped
                                  the bank receipt on her, he was just now beating himself

                                  up over breaking Lucy's heart so … deliberately. But he wants her to
                                  know that he prayed it wasn't true … and Lucy must

                                  understand that it wasn't at all personal. And there's one more
                                  thing… Off Lucy's look, Dusty takes her hand. He was never

                                  suggesting that Lucy act on the information. It's okay with him if
                                  Lucy decides to burn that receipt and do nothing. He just

                                  couldn't hide it from her. It's too important. Lucy swallows. Is
                                  Dusty saying she should bury this? Is he telling her not to

                                  face her father and demand the truth? Dusty shrugs. No, he's telling
                                  her that she (and only she) can know what's right here.

                                  And whatever she decides, Dusty is in her corner. And he'll never
                                  judge her, no matter what she chooses to do. On Lucy—

                                  We're in MOLLY'S LAKEVIEW SUITE, and Molly enters and puts down her
                                  bag and takes off her jacket. Holden stands in the

                                  doorway. She looks at him. I'm home. I'm fine. He nods. She fills up.
                                  O, Holden, just go, will you? She runs at him, trying

                                  to push him out the door, saying she can't be responsible for her
                                  actions if he stays here any longer! Holden resists being

                                  pushed out. Don't do this, Molly, don't put up a wall between us.
                                  That's not what Holden was looking to do! Molly snaps, You

                                  told your wife! Doesn't that tell you where your heart is?! Holden
                                  shakes his head. No, it doesn't. Off Molly's reaction, he

                                  says he told Lily because there's been enough deception between them.
                                  Molly knows what he went through with Lily in the

                                  months after Rose died. She knows how much Holden fought to hold onto
                                  Lily and their marriage and their … their very sanity

                                  for God's sake! He was at the end of his rope. But then Molly walked
                                  in. Molly reacts. Holden says he needed a friend, a

                                  close friend, a sympathetic friend, and Molly has been all of that
                                  and more. And he doesn't know what will come of … them …

                                  or of him and Lily … or … anything. He doesn't know anything. Except
                                  that he wants her in his life … and he's asking her not

                                  to push him away. On Molly—

                                  Lily reacts to Craig's advice. Doesn't he think Lily already thought
                                  about cornering Molly and reaming her for chasing after

                                  Holden? Lily wanted to do that the minute Holden admitted the kiss.
                                  It was her first instinct. But if Craig was there he'd

                                  know that Holden was … unclear about his feelings. Lily was half
                                  afraid that if she attacked Molly it might draw Holden

                                  closer to her. Craig goes, Wow. You two really are having problems.
                                  Lily nods, upset again. Craig says, But isn't it possible

                                  that Lily's overlooking something? Maybe Holden told her about Molly
                                  because he wanted Lily to fight for him? Lily reacts.

                                  Craig says it's a "guy thing." Maybe Holden is feeling a little
                                  forgotten and he wants Lily to remind him how much he means

                                  to her and how far she's willing to go to hold onto him. Now doesn't
                                  that make sense? Lily nods. Yes, it's possible. Maybe

                                  Holden wants her to act. Craig says, There you go. Now pull up your
                                  bootstraps and go find Molly and tell her she's got till

                                  high noon to leave Holdenville. See Lily get her lather up. She
                                  kisses Craig and thanks him for being a good friend. But as

                                  Lily starts out, Lucy is just arriving. They nod to each other. Lily
                                  goes. Craig welcomes his daughter. See, I told you I'd

                                  be here. Now why doesn't Lucy sit down and kick her shoes off, and
                                  tell her daddy what's troubling her. He's on kind of a

                                  roll today. He smiles. She doesn't. Lucy says she can't be sitting to
                                  say what she has to say. Off Craig's look, she says,

                                  Daddy, I want you to tell me why you paid men to kidnap me… On Craig,
                                  reeling—


                                  Molly stares at Holden. Did Holden know that she and Jack almost …
                                  (Molly trails off.) Holden asks her what she means. She

                                  says when Carly and Jack were having troubles … it was a while ago,
                                  before the wedding last year. She and Jack were both

                                  coming off a loss: Carly and Mike's night of passion left them both
                                  feeling betrayed and lonely. And they comforted each

                                  other often. They shared their thoughts and feelings. And they … they
                                  almost made love. And when Molly looks at Holden and

                                  herself, she sees the same thing: he rescued her from a deadly
                                  situation; and she's given him someone to care about and look

                                  out for – in lieu of his struggling marriage. We lean on each other.
                                  But we aren't in love, Holden. Let's not pretend that.

                                  And let's not take this any further. Luckily she and Jack came to
                                  their sense before it went too far; and he went back to

                                  Carly and they got married and lived as happily as any two people
                                  ever could until … until Jack … (Molly's voice cracks.)

                                  Holden pulls her gently to him. We won't let it go too far either,
                                  Molly … that's a promise. He holds her. She holds him. And

                                  neither sees Lily walk through the open door. Lily pauses then
                                  quickly steps out in the hall. GO TO: CORRIDOR. Lily, her

                                  breath caught in her throat, her face twisted in pain—


                                  Craig tries to make a joke out of Lucy's accusation about why he
                                  hired two men to kidnap her. He says that's very funny, he

                                  only hopes he doesn't have to kidnap her to get her to Williams next
                                  week. She stares at him. This is not a joke. Don't treat

                                  this lightly, dammit! Craig quickly retreats. He thinks maybe Lucy's
                                  been misinformed. What is she trying to say to him? Lucy

                                  says, Just tell me, Daddy … just tell me how you could do such a
                                  thing to me!

                                  Dusty comes out of the shower, a towel wrapped around his waist, as
                                  the BELL RINGS, and he answers to Lucinda. It takes her a

                                  second to speak as she takes him in. For the love of Pete, put on a
                                  robe, will you? Dusty retreats, as Lucinda enters the

                                  suite. He sashes a robe. Better? Lucinda goes right into her spiel.
                                  She won't mince words about what ever is going on between

                                  Dusty and her granddaughter, but if Dusty has any concern for Lucy at
                                  all, he'll see to it that she goes to Williams this

                                  week as planned. Dusty says he already told Lucy she should go to
                                  college as planned. Lucinda kind of nods, then says Dusty

                                  has to do better than that. Off his look, Lucinda says Lucy is not
                                  likely to stay away if Dusty is still available to her.

                                  Lucinda wants him to break things off with her for good and let her
                                  get on with her life. Dusty shakes his head. Sorry,

                                  Lucinda, I won't do that…

                                  Craig stares at Lucy, knows he has to answer her. It's not true.
                                  She's made a mistake. Who gave her this dishonest

                                  information? Obviously someone who hates Craig and wants him and Lucy
                                  at odds. She trembles as she levels a look at him.

                                  Dammit, Daddy, do not lie to me! He swears he's not lying. He just
                                  wants to know who's been saying these horrible things

                                  about him. She says Dusty found the receipt among the possessions of
                                  one of the kidnappers. Craig's instantly on it: O,

                                  Jesus, of course it was Dusty. Who else? Craig tried to tell Lucy
                                  that Dusty's a lying dog who wants Lucy for himself and

                                  will do anything to alienate her from her father. Please don't tell
                                  me you actually believe this malarkey! Lucy takes the

                                  crumpled receipt out her pocket and hands it to him. The very day
                                  that Craig got two mill from Sierra for his supposed

                                  "business interests," one of the kidnappers got that very amount
                                  transferred to an off-shore account. Craig stares at the

                                  receipt. Lucy says she wants the truth this time, and she wants it
                                  now. On Craig—


                                  START ON LILY, in the corridor outside Molly's suite as she sees
                                  Holden exit Molly's room (but doesn't see Lily), and go off

                                  in the opposite direction. Lily has to collect her self. She knocks
                                  on Molly's door. Molly answers with her top half-undone

                                  (she's just started changing clothes but it looks really bad), and
                                  reacts to seeing Lily. Lily pushes her way inside. Maybe

                                  Molly thought Lily doesn't care about Holden any more. Or maybe she
                                  thought she could seduce Holden into her own web. But

                                  either way, Lily's here to tell Molly that she loves her husband …
                                  and that she wants Molly to stay the hell away from him or

                                  else get ready for the fight of her life!

                                  Dusty tells Lucinda that he's tried pushing her away before – against
                                  his own better judgment – and he's been inundated with

                                  so many voices telling him what he should do vis-à-vis Lucy, but he's
                                  chosen a new path. Lucy will decide what's best for

                                  her. Yes, he'll continue to encourage her to go off to Williams, as
                                  planned. But he won't push her away from him. And he

                                  won't pretend to be through with her. Lucinda eyes him. And why not?
                                  Dusty says that's simple: I … I … care about her. He

                                  moves to the liquor cart and asks Lucinda if she'd like a drink. She
                                  says not so fast, Donovan. We all care about Lucy. We

                                  all want what's best for her. What else? Dusty stares at her. He
                                  doesn't understand the question. Lucinda says then she'll

                                  ask it more directly: Are you in love with Lucy? On Dusty, staying
                                  cool—


                                  Craig stares at the receipt in his hand. Lucy says the receipt
                                  doesn't lie. Craig put that money in the kidnappers account.

                                  He took money from Lucy's own mother then handed it over to a couple
                                  of hoods so they could kidnap her! Why? Please Daddy,

                                  make me understand this! Craig collects his thoughts, hands the
                                  receipt back and says Dusty must have made it up. It's a

                                  forgery. A lie. Lucy knows Dusty would not lie about this! Craig says
                                  Lucy is being naïve. If he really had something on

                                  Craig – if he had real proof that Craig was involved with Creel and
                                  Larsen – he'd take it right to Hal. Craig would be under

                                  arrest by now. Lucy says Dusty has promised not to get law
                                  enforcement involved, but not because he's lying, but rather

                                  because he Lucy asked him not to. That's why Dusty put it in her
                                  hands. It's up to her. Dusty even told her he wouldn't care

                                  if she buried the evidence and never confronted her dad. But Lucy
                                  could not do that. She couldn't live with herself if she

                                  didn't press Craig for the truth. And that's all she wants. The
                                  truth. Craig pauses, then says, The truth is … I didn't do

                                  this. You have to believe me Lucy. I didn't do this! On Lucy—

                                  Molly studies Lily, says she knows she deserves this. If Lily thinks
                                  Molly's trying to seduce her husband, she's wrong. Molly

                                  never wanted anything but a friendship with Holden. And she knows
                                  Holden felt the same way. Lily says, Well, it certainly has

                                  gone beyond that, hasn't it? Lily admits she just walked in on a
                                  comfy embrace between Molly and Holden. He was supposed to

                                  take Luke home and send the babysitter away, but instead he took
                                  Molly home. Molly says they took Luke home first. And Holden

                                  wasn't in Molly's suite but a few minutes. Why doesn't Lily get her
                                  mind out of the gutter?! Lily says she'd like to, but

                                  whenever she thinks of Molly, the gutter is the natural place to go.
                                  See Molly stew. You know what, Lily? You don't deserve

                                  Holden. Lily reacts. Molly says, Yeah, we kissed. But it had nothing
                                  to do with Molly. Holden's reaching out for someone, or

                                  something to hang onto! Holden needs to be loved … and he loves to be
                                  needed. Lily says, Shut the hell up, bitch – I listened

                                  to you lecture me once before about Holden, and I stood for it, but
                                  then I found out that you were reeling him in even while

                                  you were telling me I didn't pay enough attention to him! You're a
                                  whore!

                                  Craig moves away from Lucy and pours a drink, trying to look
                                  nonchalant. Okay, now that we've straightened that out, let's

                                  get to another subject: college. Lucy crosses to him. No, Daddy, not
                                  yet. Not until I know the truth. See Craig in pain. What

                                  does Lily want him to say? She holds his eyes. She says she wants him
                                  to look in her eyes, and she wants him to swear – on

                                  Bryant's grave, on Cabot's brow – that he had nothing to do with
                                  setting up the kidnapping of his own daughter. On Bryant and

                                  on Cabot – look me in the eye and swear you didn't do anything. Craig
                                  stares at her and we see emotions rise in his eyes. I

                                  didn't … I just … didn't … (he can't find his words.) Lucy backs away
                                  from him. O, God. You did it. You hired thugs to kidnap

                                  me and hold me for ransom. You're the very monster Dusty said you
                                  were!

                                  Molly seethes. She understands that Lily is angry, but this is
                                  Molly's place, and if Lily can't contain her acid tongue, then

                                  Molly will call security and get her thrown out of her own hotel!
                                  Lily scoffs. This is typical Molly McKinnon: play the

                                  victim and reel in a man! That's her favorite game! Jake fell in love
                                  with her when she was lying helpless in a hospital bed

                                  … Mike found her drinking herself silly in New York … and now it's
                                  Holden, who saved her from rape and death. "Poor Molly.

                                  Poor, poor Molly, so unlucky in love, so in need of rescuing!" Every
                                  guy's dream date! You really play it up, don't you,

                                  honey? Molly grins. That's right. I really "played it up" after
                                  watching my husband shot to death on a rooftop … Lily reacts.

                                  Molly opens the door. Get out of here. Lily stares at her. Has Lily
                                  made herself crystal clear? Molly: You don't scare me,

                                  Lily. You might make the little peons who labor for you tremble in
                                  their boots, but not Molly McKinnon. And as for making

                                  things "crystal clear," allow Molly to so the same: If Lily can't
                                  keep her man happy and at home, then the way Molly looks at

                                  it, all's fair in love and war. Now get out! See Lily struggle as
                                  Molly shoves her out the door. GO TO: THE CORRIDOR. We HEAR

                                  the lock tumble, and Lily tries the door, but can't budge it. She
                                  bangs on it. You stay the hell away from Holden, Molly! Do

                                  you hear me!? You stay the hell away from him?! Lily turns and rushes
                                  off. GO TO: Molly, her back to the door, tears her in

                                  eyes.

                                  Dusty hands a drink to Lucinda and sits down. He thinks maybe Lucinda
                                  should have her drink and go. He's not going to discuss

                                  his friendship with Lucy. Lucinda smells the drink, but hands it
                                  back. She's not trying to pry. She is merely concerned for

                                  her granddaughter. In case it hasn't occurred to Dusty, Lucy's a
                                  young woman, barely more than a girl, really, and she comes

                                  from a different place from Dusty … and there are different
                                  expectations for a girl like her. Surely Dusty can't think that

                                  this little … affair of the heart between him and Lucy is anything
                                  more than a trifle! Lucinda might expect that sort of

                                  naïvete from young Lucy, but not from someone as street-wise as Dusty
                                  Donovan. There are no two people less right for each

                                  other. Dusty must know it too. So don't be selfish. When Lucy comes
                                  to you again, send her away. Dusty goes, Don't you care

                                  if her heart breaks? Lucinda scoffs: her heart will break now or it
                                  will break later – it's inevitable. All Lucinda's asking

                                  is, Get it over with and stop this nonsense about love. Stop it
                                  before Lucy's future is gone for good. Lucinda goes…

                                  Craig grabs her hands. No, no, it wasn't like that! It was almost …
                                  it was like a practical joke. Yeah, like a joke. They

                                  weren't going to hurt you. They were just going to … keep you safe
                                  and then I was going to bring you home, and it would be

                                  okay. Simple. It was all so simple. I swear I don't know where it all
                                  went wrong. But Lucy has to believe him that she was

                                  never in danger, not really. Lucy is filled to the brim. She jerks
                                  her hands away from his. Alan. You let Alan take the blame

                                  … you let a dead man's reputation be slurred and you stood by and did
                                  nothing … and you watched Mom's heart break and you

                                  acted like you were her friend, but you're no one's friend, are you?
                                  See Craig move toward her again, but Lucy backpedals.

                                  Come on, Luce, we've been through so much and we're just getting to
                                  trust each other again – don't blow this out of

                                  proportion! It's all Dusty. He's making it sound so awful because he
                                  wants Lucy away from Craig. She hisses: you're damned

                                  right he does! And he's the only one who's been willing to get to the
                                  truth! And now that Craig's owned up to it, Lucy thinks

                                  Dsuty will get his way. Because from this moment on … her dad is dead
                                  to her. With that, Lucy turns and rushes out. See Craig

                                  panic. He cries out her name. GO TO: EXTERIOR. See Lucy run out and
                                  vanish. See Craig come out, prepared to run, but not sure

                                  where she went. He cries out her name. But he gets no answer. Craig
                                  turns, angry at himself and full of rage for Dusty and he

                                  slams his fist against the door … and again … and again …

                                  Holden on the phone, TWO-WAY, with Molly in her Lakeview Suite. She
                                  had to call him. Lily was here. Holden reacts. What did

                                  she say? Emotional Molly says Lily came loaded for bear and she
                                  proceeded to call Molly names and make threats about Holden…

                                  Holden grimaces. He's so sorry she put Molly through that. Just now,
                                  the DOORBELL rings, and Holden says someone's at the

                                  door. Molly says she just wanted to give him the head's up. And by
                                  the way, Holden… Holden's like, Yes…? Molly says, I didn't

                                  exactly ease her mind. Molly hangs up. Holden stands there holding
                                  the phone for minute (trying to figure out what that means

                                  exactly), then the DOORBELL rings impatiently, and Holden answers the
                                  door to Craig, who looks green around the gills. Craig

                                  gives Holden a quick nod, then asks if Lily is there. Holden says he
                                  thinks she's on her way home … and asks him if he wants

                                  to come inside and wait for her. Craig nods. Craig enters. Holden
                                  asks him if he's okay, he looks sick. Craig says he just

                                  needs to talk to Lily about something that— Suddenly Craig goes, I'm
                                  going to be sick. He rushes past Holden and goes o.c. to

                                  the bathroom. Holden looks skyward: what next? He's about to follow
                                  after Craig when the door opens and Lily comes in. They

                                  lock eyes. Lily is filled with emotion. She says she just came from
                                  Molly's place. Holden doesn't react. Lily says she told

                                  Molly to stay the hell away from Holden, and Molly, under no
                                  uncertain terms, told Lily she wouldn't let him go! On Holden—

                                  Dusty is dressed again, and he picks up his wallet and his keys. He
                                  opens the door to leave, and runs right into Lucy. Hey!

                                  She throws her arms around him. Thank God he's still here. Dusty says
                                  he was on his way to the Metro to do some work. Is Lucy

                                  okay? She shakes her head. She just told her dad that he's dead to
                                  her! Dusty reacts. Did he admit it? She nods. Yes, he

                                  admitted it, and he gave some sick excuse for it, but, God! God!
                                  Dusty leads her inside and tells her she did the right

                                  thing. It probably doesn't feel like it right now, but you had no
                                  choice. She nods. Then she takes a breath. She's made a

                                  decision about things. She has decided she absolutely will not go to
                                  Williams. She'll take off a semester and apply to

                                  Northwestern or someplace else near Oakdale. Her mom will have to
                                  live with it. Dusty starts to protest, but Lucy cuts him

                                  off and says, And the other thing is … I want to be with you … I mean
                                  really with you…

                                  Holden reacts, says Molly was just upset. Lily shakes her head, says
                                  she went there to tell Molly how much she still loves

                                  Holden, how awful it would be if she lost him … and she wouldn't give
                                  her any satisfaction! GO TO: AROUND THE CORNER, Craig

                                  has come out of the o.c. bathroom, and he hears Lily say, If Holden
                                  wants a whore like Molly McKinnon, then go to her! Just

                                  don't torture Lily by constantly pushing her nose in it! See Holden
                                  glance over his shoulder (toward o.c.) and quietly tell

                                  Lily that they aren't alone – Craig is here. See Lily react as Craig
                                  comes strolling in, pretending he didn't hear anything.

                                  Lily, I've been looking for you. Lily reacts. She and Holden kind of
                                  move away from each other. Craig notes that he seems to

                                  have intruded on them, so he'll go. Craig starts to leave, but Lily
                                  says to wait for her outside. So Craig goes out. Lily

                                  turns to Holden. Just tell me what's in your heart, Holden. Are you
                                  interested in saving what we have or not? Holden: Is Lily

                                  aware that she just told Montgomery to wait for her outside, as if
                                  she and Holden were discussing what's for dinner? She

                                  reacts. He says he knows he's grown too close to Molly. But what
                                  about Lily and Craig? Lily snaps, He's family. Holden says,

                                  Wrong! He was family. He's not related to Lily … and he's got a long
                                  history of using the people around him for his own gain.

                                  But despite that, Lily can't wait to go to him – even when she and
                                  Holden are in the middle of discussing their future -

                                  which tells him a lot about where her priorities lie these days.
                                  Without another word, Holden turns and goes o.c.

                                  CRAIG in the exterior of Lily House, as Lily comes out, brimming with
                                  emotions. Craig comforts her, says he was trying to

                                  discreetly get away, but the truth is he heard some of what Lily and
                                  Holden were arguing about and he … he's so sorry. Lily

                                  puts her head on his shoulder. She wishes she could go back a year.
                                  When Rose was still alive and the Roller Palace was

                                  jumping and she and Holden were indomitable. We were, you know?:
                                  indomitable. What the hell happened? Craig shrugs. Life. She

                                  nods, then lifts her head off his shoulder and looks at him. Lily
                                  hopes he doesn't mind that she's leaning on him. He shakes

                                  his head. In fact, his reason for being here when she arrived was
                                  that he, too, was seeking out her advice about— Before

                                  Craig can finish, Lily asks, Can I stay with you tonight? On Craig—

                                  Dusty starts to say that of course school is Lucy's decision, and he
                                  just wants to make sure she's not just … doing this for

                                  all the wrong reasons… She grabs his hands. Did he hear what she
                                  said? She wants them to be together. Not just like … not

                                  like friends … she wants them to be together like a man and a woman.
                                  She still wants him to be her friend, but she wants a

                                  lover, too. And someone she can care for. Dusty says, Don't waste
                                  your time on me. He tries to move away, but she won't let

                                  him. Forget what everyone is telling him to do. She's sure that her
                                  mom and her grandmother and maybe Lily too for all she

                                  knows must have told him to walk away from Lucy. And she knows he's a
                                  noble guy and wants to do what's right by her. Isn't

                                  that right? Dusty's like, Lucy, you're so young… She laughs. Yeah, I
                                  know. He reacts. She says, I am young … and naïve … and

                                  maybe even dumb about some things … but I know for certain that I
                                  love you. And I guess what I'm really asking is: Do you

                                  love me, too?

                                  Lily tells Craig she and Holden can't be in the same place tonight.
                                  They both need to cool off. She'll talk to the kids, let

                                  them know she's all right and she'll make up some excuse for being
                                  away this evening. But please Craig, let me stay at Cal's

                                  with you. Uncertain Craig points out that it's Lily's place, she can
                                  do as she pleases. She says that's not what she meant.

                                  Craig is living there. She asked his permission because it's the
                                  right thing to do. And she'll only stay at Cal's if Craig

                                  says it's all right with him. Craig's like, Sure, if that's what you
                                  want to do, I guess it's okay. Lily thanks him, embraces

                                  him.

                                  Lucy tells Dusty she loves him, and wonders if he loves her too.
                                  Because if he does, then she wants to be with him … really

                                  with him, like a couple. Dusty stares at her eyes. He wishes she
                                  hadn't asked him that question. If she's smart, she'll

                                  retract the question and forget about it. He moves away. She wants to
                                  know why she should retract the question: is it because

                                  he doesn't love her and fears that he'll break her heart? … or is it
                                  because he's scared to admit that he loves her too?

                                  Dusty doesn't answer. She gets riled up. Dammit! All she's asking for
                                  is the truth. Whatever it is, she'll handle it. But

                                  don't treat me like a child, like I need my medicine sugar-coated. I
                                  just told my father he's dead to me. That's how much I

                                  trust you and love you – so much that I'm willing to divorce myself
                                  from my own father … (she breaks) … So the least Dusty

                                  owes her is to be honest. Does he love her or doesn't he?


                                  Lily collects herself. Then she remembers: Craig wanted to talk to
                                  her – isn't that what he said? Craig says it isn't

                                  important, Lily has enough on her mind. Lily presses. Is it Lucy?
                                  Lily remembers that Lucy was arriving at Cal's place just

                                  as Lily was leaving. Craig doesn't answer, but it's in his eyes. Come
                                  on, Craig – what happened? Craig says Dusty has

                                  convinced Lucy that Craig was somehow involved with the kidnappers –
                                  not Alan Drake. Lily is hit. My God. Why would she

                                  believe him? Craig not sure (he's lying.) Dusty has some trumped-
                                  up "evidence" and Lucy has taken his side. He gets

                                  emotional: Lucy said "You're dead to me, Daddy." See Lily reach for
                                  him. She didn't mean it, Craig. She was just angry. Craig

                                  wanted to go over to Dusty's and smash his face, but he was afraid of
                                  what Dusty might do. Off Lily's puzzled look, Craig

                                  says, If he could convince Lucy, he might be able to convince the
                                  cops, too. Lily says the cops have closed the case. Craig

                                  doesn't care. Dusty could stir it all up again. He's tight with Hal's
                                  daughter, Nikki. He could start making noises and the

                                  next thing you know some ambitious flatfoot is slapping the cuffs on
                                  Craig. He needs to get his daughter back … but how can

                                  he go on the attack when Dusty's got him ham-strung like this?
                                  Please, Lily … help me.


                                  Lucy touches Dusty's face. She smiles. Come on, Donovan, it won't
                                  kill you. Just say it. He takes her hand and moves it away

                                  from his face. But he doesn't let it go. He wants her to know that
                                  every experience he's ever had tells him that what he's

                                  about to say isn't right. He's the kind that cares much what other
                                  people think of him, but he knows a lot of people are

                                  going to accuse him of taking advantage of a young woman, and maybe
                                  they're right about it. He's not sure of anything any

                                  more … except that he's tried to walk away from her and can't. See
                                  Lucy swallow hard. He's not sure where they're headed …

                                  maybe it'll be a disaster for both of us. But for the record, honey …
                                  I do love you. Madly. See Lucy fill up. Slowly she

                                  moves into his arms. And for a long minute he just holds her, and
                                  they rock back and forth. Lucy says she doesn't care what

                                  other people say any more. She's done letting others make the
                                  important decisions in her life. All she wants is to be with

                                  Dusty … and now he's told her he feels the same way. She moves back
                                  and they lock eyes. He says, I guess we're in too deep to

                                  back out now. She nods. A pause. And then they kiss. And the passion
                                  takes them to the bed and he gently settles her on her

                                  back. And they start to make love…

                                  Lily wonders if Craig wants her to speak to Dusty: she and Dusty have
                                  a history and Lily knows how to be tough with him. See

                                  Craig pause. No, Craig doesn't want Lily to deal with this. He
                                  wouldn't want her to hear the poisonous slander Dusty's saying

                                  about him. Lily says she doesn't care what he says – she knows the
                                  truth because she was at the bell tower. Any other

                                  "evidence" is just a lot of B.S. The cops have closed the case.
                                  They're not going to open it up again because Dusty Donovan

                                  says so – not considering the number of times he's been inside the
                                  Oakdale jail cells. Besides, if he wanted to go to the

                                  cops, he'd have gone there first. He didn't. He let Lucy deal with
                                  it. He won't hurt her further by trying to stain your name

                                  with the cops. And speaking of which: How much does Lucy know about
                                  Dusty's shady past? Does she know that seduced Rose in

                                  order to break up her and Paul? And does she know he did it for
                                  money? And does she know that he bilked money out of Molly

                                  McKinnon to pay off a bunch of sharks in Chicago? And does she know—
                                  Craig stops her. He smiles. He gets the idea. Lily says

                                  Craig has to fight this. Don't let him win, Craig.


                                  Join Dusty and Lucy, post-loving-making. We don't want to make this
                                  look too icky, so Dusty's already dressed for the Metro,

                                  and he's signing a room service slip and carrying a tray of food to
                                  the bed, where Lucy sits up against the pillows, the

                                  covers up to neck. But it's clear that they did indeed make love! She
                                  watches Dusty in silence. He pours some coffee, and

                                  offers it to her. She takes it. He pours a cup for himself. She says
                                  he's been awfully quiet. Wasn't it okay? He almost

                                  chokes on the coffee. O, Lucy, I'm sorry … it was … it was … yeah it
                                  was okay … it was lovely. She looks away. He lifts her

                                  chin. If he's been silent it's because he's thinking about her. He's
                                  thinking about what will happen now that they've taken

                                  this step. He knows Lucy is going to get a lot of resistance from her
                                  family. He knows they're going to press her to walk out

                                  of Dusty's life and go to Williams and get her life back on track.
                                  And he wants her to know if she ever … ever … decides

                                  "this" isn't the right thing for her, he'll understand. She never has
                                  to explain anything to him. She gets emotional. She

                                  never will… Her watery eyes hold his, and he can't help it, he has to
                                  lean in for a kiss. But before his lips touch hers, the

                                  BUZZER sounds, and Craig's voice calls out, I know you're in there,
                                  Dusty! Open up. It's me – Craig!


                                  Lily enters the house just as Holden comes through with an overnight
                                  bag packed. Lily reacts. Holden says he told the kids he

                                  had a foal to birth, and didn't let on that anything was wrong. Lily
                                  asks where he's going. He says it's a nice evening …

                                  he'll sleep in the barn. Lily reacts. He doesn't have to do that.
                                  She's already made her own arrangements for the evening.

                                  She'll say goodnight to Luke and girls and tell them she's … helping
                                  Lucy with something. They'll understand. It'll be okay,

                                  she'll be back home to make breakfast for them. Holden stares at her.
                                  What "arrangements" did Lily make? Lily doesn't answer.

                                  Holden gets it. You're going over with Craig. She's like, I'll be
                                  sleeping on his sofa, for God's sake. She says Craig was

                                  nice enough to say it was okay. Holden smiles sardonically. Craig
                                  said it was okay? Wow. What a guy. Lily goes, Holden, don't

                                  do this. Holden: Just in case no one has told Lily this lately: Craig
                                  is a first-rate creep. A man who cheats and lies and

                                  uses his family … And if that's what Lily wants … then go for it.
                                  Holden's too wrung out to fight about it.

                                  Lucy reacts. It's her dad! Dusty remains calm, yells out to the door –
                                  Hold your horses, I'll be there. He makes a motion to

                                  Lucy to hide in the bathroom. She shakes her head. I'm not afraid of
                                  him. Dusty's like, Please, Lucy, this is no time to— She

                                  folds her arms over her chest. Is Dusty ashamed of what they just
                                  did? He grits his teeth. Of course not, that's not the

                                  point! The BUZZER rings again, and Craig calls out, Come on, Donovan,
                                  before I kick this goddam door in! Lucy gets out of

                                  bed, covered by the sheets and blanket, and starts toward the door,
                                  saying she'll take care of this. But Dusty grabs her and

                                  wheels her back to the bed. Stay put! He moves to the door, and opens
                                  it a small wedge. What the hell do you want,

                                  Montgomery? See Craig try to look past him – to see who else might be
                                  in the room. Let me in! Craig makes a move to push past

                                  Dusty, but Dusty's too strong. Who's in here with you? Is it Lucy? Is
                                  my little girl in here? On Dusty, holding him back,

                                  then PAN to Lucy, out of sight, listening closely—

                                  Dusty gives Craig half a shove, and gently moves them both into the
                                  corridor… GO TO: HALLWAY. Dusty eases the door almost

                                  closed. Dusty wants to know what business Craig has being here. Craig
                                  stares at him. GO TO: LUCY, easing closer to the door

                                  as she hears Craig tell Dusty: He knows that Dusty has convinced his
                                  daughter that she shouldn't have anything more to do

                                  with her dear old dad. But Craig thinks maybe Dusty ought to remember
                                  his own past. What would Lucy think if she knew Dusty

                                  was Barbara's gigolo-for-hire in a scheme to seduce Rose D'Angelo
                                  away from Paul Ryan? See Lucy react. She stops in her

                                  tracks. GO TO: HALLWAY. Alerted Dusty pulls the door all the way
                                  closed. The move isn't lost on Craig. Dusty thinks maybe

                                  Craig had better remember who's holding all the aces in this little
                                  game of poker. Dusty has proof that Craig was behind

                                  Lucy's kidnapping. Craig says Dusty wouldn't dare take it to the
                                  police because Lucy would hate him for it. Dusty grins. Is

                                  that what you think? Craig gets in his face. He says he's going to
                                  gather every shady moment of Dusty's entire life, from the

                                  mob guys he played ball with in Chicago, to the women he fleeced out
                                  of money, to the sleazy way he used his sexuality to

                                  split up happy couples. And he's going to make sure Lucy hears every
                                  single word of it. Maybe Craig won't win her back. But

                                  he's going to make damn sure Dusty doesn't hold onto her either.
                                  Craig turns and walks away.


                                  Lily reacts. Whatever Holden thinks about Craig is neither here nor
                                  there. Lily was only trying to make this easier for

                                  Holden. She's willing to take the burden of explaining things to the
                                  kids so she can go and he can stay. Holden says the kids

                                  have already been fed one lie, let's not compound this by feeding
                                  them a second one, okay? Lily's like, I was only trying to

                                  give you space. He says he's taken care of "his space" himself – he's
                                  got a blanket and pillow in the barn office and he'll

                                  sleep there. Lily should be here in case the girls wake up. They had
                                  a million questions about Uncle Jack and Holden's out of

                                  answers. He gets emotional but quickly fights it down. He moves to
                                  the door. Lily watches him. Then she says, Is this the end

                                  of us?

                                  Emotional Lily says they've been down this path before – losing each
                                  other because of something or someone - and they've

                                  always managed to find their way back to each other, but this time …
                                  she's not sure if their marriage will survive a split

                                  and it scares the hell out of her. He looks away for a moment, then
                                  says, It scares the hell out of me, too, Lily. Then he

                                  slings the bag over his shoulder and walks out the door.

                                  Dusty enters his suite again. Lucy stares at him. You should have let
                                  me talk to him. Dusty says he's upset – it's only

                                  normal. He knows he's losing his daughter and he's trying to hang
                                  onto her. Lucy kind of nods. Then she says, I couldn't help

                                  but hear what he said … about Barbara and some scheme to— Dusty holds
                                  up his hands. Whoa. You were listening! Lucy nods.

                                  Yeah, she was listening. Dusty sighs. He says the truth is, he's done
                                  some things in the past he's not too proud of. And a

                                  lot of people know about those … incidents … and Lucy's going to hear
                                  some things. And Dusty can't help that. Lucy wants

                                  more. Dusty offers nothing. Lucy doesn't say anything more. Dusty
                                  says he's late getting to the Metro. Is Lucy okay here

                                  alone? She nods. He kisses her. Are we okay? Lucy says of course they
                                  are. Does Dusty think they're okay? Sure he does.

                                  Better than okay. She says, That's right … we're in love. With that,
                                  she gets up, wrapped up in a sheet and moves o.c. into

                                  the bathroom. Dusty sighs. Then he grabs the phone, pulls a BLACK
                                  BOOK from a drawer, looks up a number, and makes a call. A

                                  PAUSE. Then, ONE-WAY, Dusty says he's on his way to the Metro. He
                                  needs some muscle to take care of a little problem – can he

                                  count on the person on the other end of the phone? Dusty listens then
                                  nods. Good. Meet me at Metro. He grabs his coat, and

                                  goes. When he's gone, Lucy pokes her head out of the bathroom and we
                                  hold on her—

                                  Someone shadowing him - as Craig shows up at Lily House, knocks once
                                  and is let in. We REVERSE ANGLE on a STRANGER who steps

                                  into the light and stares at the silhouettes at the window. Then he
                                  moves off. INSIDE. Craig tells Lily he went to Cal's and

                                  got her message. He's sorry about her and Holden. She doesn't want to
                                  talk about it. It's too much, too overwhelming to think

                                  of him sleeping away from home … she would rather it was her. At
                                  least then she could fool herself into thinking it was her

                                  idea and that Holden would still be at home waiting for her. But he's
                                  not. Craig tries to comfort. Then she asks if he talked

                                  to Dusty. Craig says he's still livid from his run-in with Donovan,
                                  and he tells Lily he no longer cares if Dusty goes to the

                                  police with his … pack of lies. Craig had the sneaking suspicion that
                                  Lucy was in his room. Lily reacts. Craig waited outside

                                  the Lakeview to see if she'd come out, but she never did. But he
                                  hopes he put the fear of God into Donovan. Craig told him be

                                  plans to find every single thing Dusty ever did wrong and make sure
                                  Lucy knows about it. And that's just what he plans to do.

                                  Now the baby MONITOR lets out a yowl, and Lily gets quickly to her
                                  feet, says that's Natalie, she probably had a bad dream.

                                  She goes. When she's gone, there is a faint rap at the door. Craig
                                  looks back at where Lily stood a minute ago, then calls

                                  out that he'll get the door, and he opens it to THE STRANGER. Craig
                                  asks, Can I help you? And THE STRANGER smiles and says,

                                  Yes you can. And with that, he hits Craig with a blackjack and knocks
                                  him to the floor. Then grabs Craig's feet and drags him

                                  out of Lily's house. LATER: Lily comes out and finds Craig gone. And
                                  she finds something at the door that's puzzling, like

                                  maybe Craig's wallet or something, stuck in the doorway, and she
                                  feels sort of weird about it. She calls him, and we go

                                  TWO-WAY with CRAIG, who's in the back of a van. He's still out cold.
                                  Up front, we SEE THE STRANGER at the wheel of the van.

                                  Craig starts as his cell phone rings. He moves to sit up, but his
                                  head throbs. Jesus. What happened. He searches for his cell

                                  phone, but can't find it. Suddenly from out of the dark, a hand
                                  extends the phone to him. Lose this? Craig starts. It's

                                  DUSTY. What the hell is going on? What do you think you're doing?
                                  Craig cell phone stops ringing. LILY HANGS UP, puzzled, and

                                  maybe a little worried… THEN WE'RE BACK WITH CRAIG, as he sizes up
                                  his situation. He looks at THE STRANGER. Friend of yours?

                                  Dusty smiles. Yeah, an old friend from Chicago. One of those slime-
                                  balls I used to hang with – be sure to add this to your

                                  list for Lucy. Craig suddenly gets a panic attack. Where are you
                                  taking me? Dusty levels a look at him. Don't worry – it's

                                  some place familiar. Craig moves to get out of the van, willing to
                                  push open the door and roll out of the moving vehicle, but

                                  Dusty pulls him back in. You like to play games, Craig? Well, I'm
                                  about to show you what happens when the stakes go up and

                                  you're wallet is empty. I think you'll enjoy this. MEANTIME: Lucinda
                                  finds Lucy at Dusty's suite. She's discreet enough not

                                  to ask her granddaughter any questions about the arrangement, and
                                  instead takes the high ground. She talked to Sierra a

                                  little while ago and they're both hoping Lucy is going to be at
                                  Lucinda's house tomorrow so that Fenwick can drive her to

                                  school. Lucy has to tell Lucinda (and her mom in a O-W call while
                                  Lucinda listens) that she's not going to college this

                                  semester. Lucinda warns Lucy that she's making a mistake: Dusty
                                  Donovan's not worth altering the future for. Lucy says that's

                                  her business, not Lucinda's. And she'd like her things sent over
                                  here – she's going to live with Dusty from here on in.

                                  Lucinda takes it on the chin. When she's gone, Lucy has this moment
                                  where she realizes she's here – this room, this place,

                                  this is "ours." She orders up a

                                    Spoilers: Week of 09/13/2004
                                    RUNWAY RIVALRY

                                    Thorne prepares Spectra to take on Forrester with Spectra's "new"
                                    (stolen) designs - and he uses them to steal Forrester's customers
                                    away, as well!

                                    Thorne, Darla and Clarke court The Princess, one of Forrester's
                                    biggest couture clients, to lure her over to wear the new designs
                                    from the renamed Spectra Couture.
                                    Thorne feels appreciated.
                                    After the Princess agrees to buy from Spectra, Thorne calls Ridge to
                                    gloat.
                                    Jackie's impressed by the designs from the "new" Spectra.
                                    Stephanie tries to repair her damaged family and makes a desperate
                                    plea to Thorne.
                                    Thorne prepares for his Spectra debut.
                                    The Spectra fashion show gets underway.
                                    At the Spectra fashion show, Jackie realizes the designs are
                                    Forrester knockoffs, so she tells Eric.
                                    Eric and Ridge receive some disturbing news.
                                    Ridge accuses Thorne of stealing family secrets.
                                    COMING UP: Thorne takes a risky step.

                                    HOT AND COLD

                                    Despite Ridge's action, things heat up with Amber and Thomas, while
                                    Rick tries to cool things down with Caitlin so they can see each
                                    other:
                                    Amber ignores the restraining order and continues to see Thomas.
                                    Brooke warns Ridge not to trust Amber over Thomas.
                                    Amber has a nasty encounter with Caitlin.
                                    Thomas seizes a golden opportunity.
                                    Rick and Caitlin tell Ridge that Hector accepted their relationship
                                    so long as they don't rush things.
                                    When Rick balks at taking her to the homecoming dance, Caitlin says
                                    she still won't give up on him.
                                    After hearing how Rick turned Caitlin's invitation down, Thomas
                                    offers to take her to the dance as a friend.

                                    Monday, September 13, 2004, Episode #4383

                                    Ridge and Brooke hope the restraining order will keep Amber away
                                    from Thomas.
                                    When Lt. Baker comes by Amber's, Thomas hides, and he's shocked when
                                    the detective serves Amber with the restraining order.
                                    Amber defies the restraining order and starts kissing Thomas after
                                    Lt. Baker leaves.


                                    Thorne, Darla and Clarke court The Princess, one of Forrester's
                                    biggest couture clients, to lure her over to wear the new designs
                                    from the renamed Spectra Couture.
                                    Thorne is pleased when the Princess agrees to buy from Spectra.
                                    Thinking their problems with Amber are over, Brooke suggests that
                                    Ridge concentrate on finding out what Thorne is up to at the "new"
                                    Spectra.
                                    Ridge calls Thorne and tells him that he can never compete with
                                    Forrester, prompting Thorne to tell Ridge that someone will win - and
                                    this time, it'll be him!

                                    CURRENT NEWS

                                    Is SEAN KANAN on the way out as Deacon? CBS Soaps in Depth and Soap
                                    Opera Previews both learned from sources close to the actor that his
                                    current contract is about to expire. SID's source indicated that it
                                    hadn't been decided if the actor would stay on; while Sean loves
                                    working on B&B, the source pointed out, he had been back-burnered a
                                    bit in 2004 and had hoped his story would pick up. While Sean was
                                    happy to see this changing with the recent resurgence of the
                                    Deacon/Jackie/Massimo story, the Previews source stated, he still
                                    hadn't made a final decision.

                                    Now, in the new Soap Opera Weekly, Kanan states that no one has
                                    called him, so he's actively auditioning again and has made himself
                                    available for pilots. Still, he told SPW, "I love working here and I
                                    love the people here. We'll see if they want me anymore."

                                    Sources for B&B, per the show's policy, would not comment on Kanan's
                                    contract negotiations. Meanwhile, SID suggests there is talk that, if
                                    things don't work out at B&B, Sean's former soap GENERAL HOSPITAL
                                    might ask him back to play A.J. Quartermaine (the role he played from
                                    1993-97, recently vacated by Billy Warlock).

                                    After asking to be dropped to recurring status last October, JUSTIN
                                    TORKILDSEN (Rick) has signed a new 2 year contract with B&B. When he
                                    was back-burnered last year and was passing up other projects (like a
                                    part on the now canceled FOX series SKIN) because of his B&B
                                    commitment, Justin offered to step down and even said he'd understand
                                    if Executive Producer Brad Bell wanted to recast. Bell instead
                                    dropped the actor to recurring so he could continue with the show and
                                    pursue other projects. Once they decided to bring Rick back to the
                                    front burner by pairing him with Caitlin, the show and Justin resumed
                                    talks to bring him back.

                                    Justin was flattered that he was included in the new B&B opening
                                    credits, even though he was the only actor in the sequence not under
                                    contract. While negotiations had started at the time the sequence
                                    debuted, Justin was not officially signed yet, so he was pleased to
                                    be asked to be included anyway.


                                    Soap Opera Digest reports that plans to cast a new female designer
                                    for Spectra have been shelved, and that a current character (SOD
                                    recalls that both Felicia and Amber have design experience) will be
                                    used instead.

                                    UPDATED: COLLEEN DION may not be off B&B after all, TV GUIDE ONLINE
                                    reports.

                                    The buzz began when The Soap Opera Network reported on September 04
                                    that DIon was out as B&B's Felicia. Dion had recently signed a one-
                                    year deal to return to the role she originated from 1990-92 and
                                    briefly reprised in 1997, and she was commuting from New York (where
                                    she and her husband, Larry Scotti (who runs the Brooklyn, NY studio
                                    where AS THE WORLD TURNS tapes) live with their 2 children) to Los
                                    Angeles. Details were not available as to why Dion had left the role,
                                    but reports were that the show was hoping to recast that same week
                                    with an experienced actress who would appear on screen by early
                                    October.

                                    On September 10, TV GUIDE ONLINE reported the rumors that were out
                                    there, stating that some attributed Dion's exit to her bi-coastal
                                    commute. When they checked with a B&B representative, however, TVG
                                    Online learned that the rumors were only half-true. The B&B rep
                                    stated, "There have been some difficulties with her commute," but the
                                    spokesperson also stressed that Dion remains on the show on a
                                    recurring basis. She and B&B are currently in talks to find the best
                                    solution for upcoming travel concerns, the rep states.


                                    Soap Opera Digest reports that, according to B&B insiders, another
                                    big casting announcement from the show is coming soon.

                                    DARLENE CONLEY (Sally) fractured her femur bone during B&B's July
                                    hiatus, keeping the actress off the set for about three weeks to
                                    recuperate. The injury was written into the show to have Sally
                                    receive a similar injury off camera, to cover the actress missing her
                                    August tape dates. She was scheduled to return to work on September
                                    07.


                                    LLOYD BATTISTA (ex-Ray, LOVE OF LIFE) appears as Hayden, a
                                    distinguished gentleman who owns a chain of boutique stores, on Sept.
                                    22.

                                    JOSEPH MASCOLO (Massimo) has signed a new contract with the show,
                                    according to a report in Soap Opera Weekly.

                                    Soap Opera Digest reports that someone from Felicia's past in New
                                    York will soon turn up in L.A. However, there is no word yet on who
                                    this person is or on casting. Stay tuned...

                                    Top GL Star Pushes Show Too far-& Gets Fired

                                    According to inside sources, Grant Aleksander was fired Friday August
                                    27th. Evidently GA has become increasingly difficult over the years &
                                    especially the past six months. The insider also alleged that several
                                    of the shows actresses had said they didn't want to work with him.
                                    The most recent incident occured when he brought production to a halt
                                    during a scene between Phillip & Harley/Ruth. GA said Phillip would
                                    easily recognize Harley despite her disguise, & demanded a rewrite.
                                    The show complied, adding to the script that Phillip had an eye
                                    infection, & therefore didn't recognize Harley. The scene starts with
                                    Phillip using eyedrops. This did not set well with EW but sources say
                                    the firing came from higher up. The source said GA is doing fine, in
                                    good spirits, & can't wait to work on his next project.

                                    Dropped
                                    Saundra Santiage from OLTL. Evidently her character dies Sept. 9 but
                                    she will appear a few more times as a ghost.


                                    Rumor has it the show is recasting Alan Michael Spaulding to fill the
                                    Phillip void.


                                    Michelle Chooses Danny

                                    Tony rescues Michelle this week but she ends up in Danny's arms. Tony
                                    saves the day with a little help from Danny when a stalker grabs
                                    Michelle outside the house. Later Danny meets up with her at the
                                    lighthouse & things turn romantic just as Tony arrives. According to
                                    NSA "Michelle is starting to see what she loved in him. She is
                                    starting to understand him a little more, but then Tony walks in &
                                    spoils the mood.When he leaves they try to pick up where they left
                                    off but she can't stop thinking how bad she feels for disapointing
                                    Tony." "That doesn't mean she has fallen for Tony, I don't think she
                                    has feelings for him at all," maintains NSA. "Even though she has
                                    this comfort thing with Tony, she knows Danny is her husband."

                                    Grant Aleksander has been let go from the role of Phillip on "Guiding
                                    Light," where he has toiled on and off for 20 years. Show reps insist
                                    that his departure is "story-dictated," but numerous backstage
                                    sources report months of discord between the actor and "GL" execs.

                                    From Soapdom

                                    As Danny tends to Michelle's minor injury at the hand of the well-
                                    dressed stalker, Tony vows to get the woman he wants. What does this
                                    mean for Danny and Michelle? That is not yet clear, but we do know
                                    that they will pack up their things and prepare to start anew. What's
                                    more, who is the well-dressed stalker and do they reappear again this
                                    week? What does his choice of attire have to do with his ultimate
                                    agenda?

                                    While on the other side of Springfield, Harley and Bill get a
                                    brainstorm and engage in a plan to ferret out exactly what Phillip
                                    has in store for the town. Will Phillip suspect that his every move
                                    is being observed?

                                    At the same time, when one tactic to dissuade Dinah falls short,
                                    Jeffrey takes another approach, threatening that he will prosecute
                                    Dinah to the full extent of the law. But what about what Dinah has
                                    hanging over Jeffrey? Will that discourage him from dealing with her?
                                    We don't know for sure, but we do know this. Jeffrey is not the only
                                    one who wants to give Dinah her just desserts. Cassie will also want
                                    Dinah to get what she deserves. Meanwhile, Edmund takes matters into
                                    his own hands when he gets a mysterious phone call. Who is on the
                                    other end of the line?

                                    Speaking of Edmund and Cassie, it seems he has a surprise for her.
                                    How will she react? Shortly thereafter, Joey tries to convince Tammy
                                    that nothing happened between him and Lizzie. Will Tammy believe
                                    Joey? Keep your eyes peeled to Guiding Light this week and see!

                                    JACK AND JULIA GET PASSIONATE ON ATWT


                                    It's a week of stunning revelations for ATWT's Carly and Jack, who
                                    have been separated by his "death" for well over a month now. "To
                                    facilitate the story, Jack has been kind of closed off from the
                                    wold," says Michael Park, but all that changes on Wednesday when Jack
                                    is recognized for the first time. He and Julia meet a couple of
                                    hippies who tell him all about the crazy antics of his no-good, crazy
                                    wife, Julia, which explains his fixation on the name.

                                    "He has made this connection with Julia, but he has realized that
                                    Julia isn't the connection that he thought she was," explains Park.
                                    It's enough to make Jack decide that he doesn't want to remember his
                                    old life anymore, and this Julia is all too ready to help him move
                                    on. "Julia is madly in love. When she looks in his eyes, she sees her
                                    future children," gushes her portrayer, Sarah Brown.

                                    Meanwhile, Carly and Hal get a few big clues that convince them that
                                    Jack is alive, as Parker has insisted all along. By Friday, Carly is
                                    ready to make a live appeal to her husband on TV, while an oblivious
                                    Jack takes off his wedding ring- and has sex with Julia. What he does
                                    next could break a few CarJackers' hearts.

                                    ---------------------------------------

                                    Okay, the rumor of John Dixon being killed is still going without
                                    confirmation or denial. But now, they're saying that they're going to
                                    bring back Andy!!!

                                    Also, word on the street is that Dr. Walker Daniels, Real Andrews,
                                    wasn't "let go" from the show at his own request!

                                    It was originally reported that the role of Nikki Munson (presently
                                    occupied by the soon-to-depart McKenzie Satterthwaite) will not be
                                    recast - but that is false! Despite the shows insistance to the
                                    contrary, the role of Nikki Munson will be recast.

                                    The Viewers Voices have spoken...
                                    89% give the Dusty/Lucy pairing a thumbs up

                                    -----------------------------------------------

                                    Okay, this is just a rumor at this point, if you'd prefer that no
                                    more rumors get posted, let me know.

                                    I got this from an ATWT group on MSN and they even say that there's
                                    no confirmation on this at this time. But, they are saying that it is
                                    rumored that Dr. John Dixon will get killed off this fall!!!

                                    That's all I found on it and summer's over. If Dr. Dixon gets any
                                    airtime in the next few months, I'd worry. But, just to toss around
                                    some ideas, with the evil Dr. Decker getting involved with Babs later
                                    this month, perhaps he'll be the one to kill Dr. John Dixon. Maybe
                                    John tries to help Babs (he's been leaving her high and dry lately)
                                    and Dr. Decker gets jealous (of course, he's crazy so he doesn't
                                    really need a reason, does he?) and knocks Dr. John over the head
                                    with a metal pee-pot! Or, maybe Will decides to kill John and makes
                                    it look like Babs did it! (I think GL-Chris called it that Will's
                                    gonna play Barbara.) Then, there's James who is all set for a big
                                    storyline around November sweeps...will he see that John and Decker
                                    are getting close to the only woman he's ever really loved? Will he
                                    say a magic word that will set Hal back into evil action? And well,
                                    how long has it been since Paul was a murder suspect? They'll
                                    probably throw him into the mix just out of habit...Craig too! But,
                                    they'll probably say that Walker did it, he's leaving anyway.

                                    Jack Smith confirmed that they are currently looking for an actrice
                                    with experience to play the role of Victoria! In my opinion, it will
                                    be impossible to replace Heather Tom (Victoria) but I think Victoria
                                    is definitely needed. They just sort of left that story open IMO and
                                    I am glad they are bringing her back to Genoa City. What are
                                    everybody else's thoughts?

                                    Am I the only one who predicts a Victoria/Michael/Lauren love
                                    triangle?

                                    tells Lizzie he doesn't want her money -- he wants her to introduce

                                    Do They Have The Write Stuff?
                                    "I'm very pleased that the fans and press have reacted so well to
                                    Lucy and Dusty," says Sheffer.
                                    If you're one of the AS THE WORLD TURNS fans who have fallen hard for
                                    the Lucy/Dusty pairing, you're in good company. The show's Emmy-
                                    winning headwriter, Hogan Sheffer, is kinda sweet on the couple
                                    himself. "I just love these two, to say the least," he shares with
                                    Soaps In Depth in a rare interview. "It is so much fun watching them.
                                    There is this smile in their eyes when they look at each other that
                                    is just wonderful."
                                    As for criticism that perhaps he penned the couple's first love
                                    scene too early on in the game, Sheffer has a confession to make: "I
                                    am notorious for having couples make love too soon, and am always
                                    being yelled at by my fellow writers because of it!"
                                    Sheffer, though, has a specific plan for Lucy and Dusty -- and
                                    more to say about that timing of that first love scene -- and you can
                                    read all about it in a can't-miss news story appearing in the new CBS

                                    DION STAYS ON B&B
                                    The rumor mill churns with news that The Bold and the Beautiful's
                                    Colleen Dion (Felicia) is on her way out. The strain of Dion's
                                    commute — the East coast-based actress flies to Los Angeles to shoot
                                    her scenes — is faulted for her unexpected exit. Reportedly, the
                                    show's put out a casting call to fill the role. The story is only
                                    half-true. "There have been some difficulties with her commute,"
                                    confesses a B&B spokesperson, but stresses that Dion remains on the
                                    show on a recurring basis. She and B&B are currently in talks to find
                                    the best solution for upcoming travel concerns.


                                    COLOMBINO RETURNS
                                    As previously reported, Terri Colombino has renewed her contract to
                                    play As the World Turns' Katie Frasier. "I'm psyched to have the deal
                                    done and be back on the show," she tells TV Guide Online. Colombino,
                                    who ironed out her deal while on maternity leave, appreciates the
                                    time she's been able to spend at home with new daughter Julia
                                    Catherine. "She'll be 3 months old by the time I go back to ATWT, and
                                    it's just been amazing to be with her," she shares. "It was difficult
                                    the first couple of weeks — you kiss sleep goodbye — but it's gotten
                                    better, and she's just the most amazing, sweetest thing." Colombino
                                    returns to work in mid-October.



                                    ANDREWS' NEXT PUNCH
                                    Réal Andrews is off As the World Turns, but don't expect the actor to
                                    make a move back to the West Coast. "I have a great family base here
                                    and great friends," says the former Californian. "If another job
                                    comes up, Daddy will travel, but the family will stay here." Andrews
                                    has good reason to stay put. He and his wife are the driving force
                                    behind Camp Discipline, a fitness facility in Milford, Conn. "It's
                                    been incredible. We started out in an 1800-square-foot space, now
                                    we've moved into 10,000 square feet."

                                    Running his new business offset the unexpected departure from
                                    ATWT. "It was not my decision [to leave]," Andrews says
                                    candidly. "But I understand that they have to do what's best for the
                                    show.... I thank the lord for planting the seed of [my fitness
                                    company] because it would have been scary to move the family here and
                                    not have another source of income." With his newfound financial
                                    freedom, Andrews is prepared to be more discriminating with his
                                    acting opportunities. "The ones I make in the future will be for me
                                    creatively," he shares. That may be a decision that's right around
                                    the corner. "Actually, I'm in talks with another job," he
                                    hints. "Can't say anything about it, but it looks really good."

                                    suddenly at his Hollywood home on Sept. 4. He was 40 years old.
                                    Louden made his acting debut playing ATWT's edgy bad boy Duke Kramer
                                    in the late '80s. He went on to guest-star on several series, and
                                    became the host of Arena, a digital sports-highlights show, in 2002.

                                      Greetings From the Editor - Lynn Leahey

                                      Dear Readers,
                                      It was hush-hush, but the cat's out of the bag now: On the heels of
                                      B&B snatching up Y&R's Eileen Davidson (ex-Ashley), Heather Tom (ex-
                                      Victoria, Y&R) has been lured to sister soap B&B as Kate Logan. When
                                      Katie debuted back in 1987, she was the sensible (for soaps),
                                      insecure Logan sister. Should be interesting to see how she's
                                      changed!... On Friday, August 3, DAYS's Andre and Tony come face to
                                      face, and Thaao Penghlis made the most of his characters' moment. "I
                                      play it for laughs ... and always with a trick up my sleeve," he
                                      winks.... And ATWT's Paul wakes up to a nightmare: Meg with Craig.

                                      Tales From The Interview
                                      By Jennifer Lenhart
                                      ATWT's Austin Peck (Brad) is one of those actors who always seems
                                      "on" - even when we sat down for a brunch interview in downtown
                                      Manhattan, he was buzzing with energy, chatting up the waitress (and
                                      her trainee), good-naturedly taking a mid-meal power outage in
                                      stride, joking about the "Orgy" he was going to order - seriously,
                                      there's an insane pancakes-laden-with-everything-but-the-kitchen-sink
                                      item on the menu called the Orgy, and he did indeed order it (which
                                      even caught the eye of another customer after it was delivered).
                                      Despite (or maybe, because of) all of that, I wasn't sure I'd get to
                                      know the "real" Austin during our interview. In fact, he's quite
                                      genuine without being too earnest and can basically talk about any
                                      subject under the sun. I think what I appreciated most (as the ATWT
                                      editor) was his absolute devotion to ATWT and his character, which I
                                      think shows on-screen. Still, you can tell he's a little frustrated
                                      that he's mostly only recognized for DAYS, where he played
                                      Austin Reed. Read his interesting take on the differences between the
                                      two shows in our new issue.


                                      In the meantime, have you checked out season 2 of INTURN on cbs.com?
                                      It's winding down now, but you can still catch all the episodes on
                                      the Web site before it's time to vote for the three finalists and
                                      just like last year, this office is completely addicted. Stephanie
                                      Sloane and I trade e-mails on Tuesday and Thursdays while waiting
                                      impatiently for the newest episodes to be available, then complain
                                      that they're never long enough. We got Lynn Leahey hooked this year,
                                      too! The highlights? CBS Daytime VP Richard Mensing literally meowing
                                      to screw up someone's audition, Michael Park's (Jack) reaction to the
                                      reenactments (with some progressively porn-ier additions) to a
                                      classic Carjack scene, and everything involving Natalie, this
                                      season's villainess extraordinaire (who would eat last year's bad
                                      boy, Ian, for breakfast). Look for an interview with Natalie on our
                                      Web site coming soon, and go to www.cbs.com/originals/inturn2 to
                                      catch up on this reality show.

                                      didn’t know much about Shelley Hennig (Stephanie, DAYS) before I sat
                                      down to interview her, other than the fact that she was Miss Teen
                                      USA. Well, it turns out that this sweet, adorable, bright girl has
                                      done a lot of living in her 20 years. It was hard for me to fit it
                                      all into our normal four-pages, so I had to give her five. She
                                      discussed everything from her pageant win (“You just have to be
                                      yourself. They just ask you random questions and Vanessa Minnillo was
                                      the host and she was like, ‘We hear you like baseball players. Tell
                                      us why.’ I was like, ‘Because they look hot in their uniforms.’ As
                                      simple as that.”) to the tragic loss her family suffered when she was
                                      a teenager to the amazing way she got cast in her Salem role. Check

                                      Y&R’s Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren) shares the secret to maintaining her
                                      lustrous locks. “I use curling irons to keep out the frizz, but I
                                      have to get it professionally done when I wear it straight. When I go
                                      to sleep at night, my hair goes curly. To keep the color in, I use a
                                      special shampoo that’s supposed to not strip your hair color. It’s
                                      called Enjoy Sulfate Free Hydrating Shampoo.”

                                      Now that the powers-that-be at GH are re-pairing Laura (Lulu) with
                                      Scott (Logan), wouldn't it be great if they threw a Luke-a-like in
                                      the mix? For those of us who experienced the first triangle, it would
                                      be a great “Back to the ’80s.” And wouldn't it be great if Laura came
                                      out of her catatonia thinking she was still married to Scott?

                                      I was a part of the recent GL Find Your Light in New Orleans, along
                                      with many soap fans and Ricky Paull Goldin [Gus], Marcy Rylan
                                      [Lizzie], Michelle Ray Smith [Ava], and Bonnie Dennison [Daisy]. Each
                                      of these folks were very nice. I was really impressed with Marcy
                                      Rylan. She seemed very down-to-earth and went out of her way to talk
                                      with us "regular" people.... These are great examples of how soap
                                      stars should use their fame.

                                      Trivia Time
                                      Star Fact: Winsor Harmon (Thorne, B&B) was born in Crowley, LA “at
                                      the exact moment that John F. Kennedy was assassinated." When the
                                      actor, who was a college football player, tried to break into
                                      modeling, he was told he was too large at 230 pounds. The actor
                                      slimmed down with a vegetarian diet and went on to a career with the
                                      prestigious Ford Models.

                                      Q. There’s a woman in a red bathing suit in the Breyers ice cream
                                      commercial who looks really familiar. Do I know her from soaps?
                                      A. Yes, indeed. That’s Carolyn Hennesy, who play’s Diane, Sonny’s
                                      lawyer on GH.

                                      Last week, we asked: Be honest, what do you think when an actress
                                      starts to put on the pounds? You said:

                                      It's about time; all those other skinny girls need a sandwich.: 92%

                                      It's time to hit the gym; I like it when stars look perfect.: 8%

                                      Here's this week's question: The latest Digest reports on how GL’s
                                      Gus engages in some hasty rebound sex and GH’s Lucky finds out about
                                      Liz’s one-night stand. When it comes to soap cheaters, is a one-night
                                      stand better or worse than a full-on affair? (Okay, okay, we know
                                      they’re both bad, but work with us.)

                                      One Night Only: I still hate it, but I’d be more upset if the cheater
                                      really loved the third party.

                                      Once Is Not Enough: I still hate it, but I’d be more upset if the
                                      cheater was willing to throw it all away for someone they don’t even
                                      really love.

                                        appears on October 25 — with Emily, who's due back on October 24.
                                        Kelley Menighan Hensley, who returned to ATWT a week ago to screen
                                        test with all of the Chris hopefuls, reports back to work for real
                                        today, after a three month maternity leave. "The idea of going back to
                                        work is a little intimidating at this juncture, but I will manage. I
                                        have 21 scenes!" grins the actress, who gave birth to third child,
                                        Georgia Grace (they call her "Gigi") on June 28.

                                        — STEVEN BERGMAN

                                        "Once she got here, in all honesty, I haven't even thought about work.
                                        I don't know what that tells me. I'm reserving all of my judgment
                                        because I realize my daughter is only nine weeks old at this time.
                                        Your perspective changes and hopefully I'll get back into a rhythm of
                                        work and I'll love who I'm working with and I'll still get to work
                                        with Grayson [McCouch, Dusty]. Hopefully all those things that I loved
                                        about work will be there when I get back. I'm banking on it."

                                        She's also been catching up with the show. "I slowly see the strife
                                        between Holden and Lily, obviously, because I love to watch Jonny
                                        [Hensley, Holden, her husband] and I followed the Jack and Katie
                                        story. The whole time I'm just throwing things at the television
                                        because I want her with Brad! I think they're so good together. And
                                        put Jack back with Carly where he belongs!"



                                        Kanan Goes Back to Court
                                        According to TMZ.com, Sean Kanan (ex-Deacon, B&B; ex-AJ, GH) is due in
                                        court on Sept. 17 as a follow-up to his Aug. 18 arrest on suspicion of
                                        DUI. Kanan was charged with two counts — driving under the influence
                                        of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol of .08 or greater. He
                                        posted $30,000 bail at the time of the arrest. Kanan faces a maximum
                                        penalty of one year in jail and a $1000 fine per count. As Kanan had a
                                        previous DUI conviction in 1998, the second DUI carries a minimum jail
                                        sentence of 96 hours.

                                        To see Kanan's misdemeanor complaint, see here.

                                        Carly's unknown illness continues to take a turn for the worse and she
                                        receives devastating news as Katie heads down the aisle to marry Jack.
                                        Will Carly let Jack in on the seriousness of her diagnosis or will she
                                        continue to suffer in silence in order to prove to Jack that she is
                                        ready for him to move on and make a life without her? Even if Carly
                                        decides not to be honest with her ex-husband, Brad could very well be
                                        the one to tell his brother the truth about his former love!

                                        Meanwhile, Rosanna's convalescence is up to speed and soon moves into
                                        turbo drive when the memory of her accident returns. Not long after,
                                        she prepares to take revenge against Craig – what will her first move be?

                                        Elsewhere in Oakdale, Maddie continues to remain completely confounded
                                        by the nature of Noah and Luke's friendship until she is forced to
                                        face the truth about Noah. Will Maddie keep his secret or reveal his
                                        sexuality to the entire town after such a betrayal?

                                        Dusty's alleged involvement in the murder of Cheri continues to
                                        consume his life. Unbeknownst to him, he too, emerges as a target.
                                        Will his life suddenly be snuffed out just as quickly as Cheri's?

                                        The women in Ridge's life convene after he is found spending more and
                                        more time around Brooke, insisting he wants the family to return to a
                                        sense of normalcy. Ashley gets advice from Taylor about what to do
                                        when it comes to Ridge's history with Brooke. Moving forward and

                                        hope that Taylor is well-versed in her wisdom if, in fact, it is Ridge
                                        whom Brooke hopes to rekindle a relationship.

                                        for freezing his assets. After Craig leaves, Rosanna is flooded with
                                        memories and tells Paul she remembers everything. Rosanna and Paul
                                        meet with Tom about pressing charges. Unfortunately, there is nothing
                                        they can do unless Craig is charged with another crime. Rosanna has a
                                        confrontation with Craig, telling him even though he won't be going to
                                        prison for her accident, he will return to prison.....since she
                                        intends to tell all about his involvement in the baby switch! Craig
                                        tries to convince Rosanna otherwise, but she refuses to back down.
                                        After Will refuses to testify against Craig, he questions his
                                        brother's true motives for doing this, wondering Meg is the cause.
                                        Paul denies having any interest in her. Later, Rosanna tells Paul they
                                        need to move past what happened with Craig; Paul professes his undying
                                        love for Rosanna and they make love. Paul then proposes to Rosanna.
                                        Rosanna accepts Paul's proposal and agrees to testify against Craig,
                                        so she can Paul can be together.

                                        lingerie, considering her recent attack.

                                        revelation to come to light while she's in the slammer!

                                        Victor may end up being Phyllis's savior - for a high price - if she

                                        After Summer takes ill, the truth will come out that Jack is Summer's
                                        father!

                                        paternity test - and Jack is not happy! (What's listed here is all we
                                        know as of it. How or why Phyllis will have to 'explain' is still up
                                        in the air. On one hand, she may have known about the 'results." Were
                                        they fixed? Or it could be to mean that she'll have to explain why she
                                        never looked at the results and took Nick's word for it, which would
                                        surely cause Jack to be angry. Again, this is all we know as of yet.)

                                        > SOD: Fall Preview
                                        "We have a couple of bombs going off soon that will have repercussions
                                        through the end of the year," promises EP/HW Lynn Marie Latham.

                                        Jack/Victor/Nikki/David/Gloria:
                                        Jack's dirty secret finally comes out. "Victor has always wanted to
                                        expose Jack as the owner of Jabot, but he was waiting until Jack
                                        became a public figure. The fallout is going to be like a firestorm.
                                        Nikki and David will get incredibly close because he's everything for
                                        her that Victor isn't. But if she ever comes back to Victor, he wants
                                        her to be crawling." And Gloria also wants a piece of the
                                        Jack-goes-down campaign. "When Victor puts his plan into motion,
                                        Gloria realizes she has the icing on the cake."

                                        Phyllis/Nick/Sharon:
                                        Don't expect Sharon to forsake her marriage right away to reunite with
                                        Nick just because Phyllis is behind bars; another dormant player jumps
                                        back into the mix. "Brad has a plan to break up Jack and Sharon, but
                                        something very unique is going to happen with Phyllis while she's in
                                        prison."

                                        Devon/Lily/Cane/Karen/Neil:
                                        While Devon tries to tell Lily that he loves her, she will find
                                        herself attracted to Cane. But what will be really interesting to
                                        watch is Neil's reaction when he sees that his daughter is falling for
                                        an older man." Meanwhile, Neil and Karen grow closer, but "That
                                        relationship is threatened by his memories of Dru."

                                        Daniel/Amber/Kevin:
                                        Kevin wants to see Jana redeemed. Her illness is real, but is that
                                        what caused her to kill Carmen? He could be really getting in trouble.
                                        Amber is her own worst enemy and she's going to have a very rough go
                                        of it."

                                        Colleen/Adrian/Heather:
                                        "We're going to find out that Adrian has a much more complicated past
                                        than is known. This will cause Colleen to rethink her commitment to
                                        him and she'll turn to someone else. Surprisingly, Heather has
                                        information about Adrian - but she's not aware of it."

                                        little tricks and trying to get his attention. " In Katie's mind, it's
                                        made him not want to be with Carly at all," she adds. " Not want to be
                                        around her, period. It's been kind of counterproductive if Carly has
                                        been wanting to make him fall in love with her again!" Michael Park
                                        Jack agrees with his co-stars assessment of the situation. " Katie and
                                        Jack were including Carly in everything because of the kids, " he
                                        explains. " The shower, the engagement party and everything. At each
                                        time, at these events, she tried to pull something. " Whether she
                                        meant to or not," he continues, " somethings happened where there was
                                        drama involved with Carly. So because of that, she gets dis invited to
                                        the wedding." When Jack informs his ex that she will not be welcome at
                                        the ceremony, Carly attempts to be a gracious as possible. But later,
                                        her world shatters completely when she receives her test results from
                                        the doctor and learns that she as a lesion on her brain!

                                        A Matter of trust:
                                        Carly struggles to deal with the devastating news as she discovers
                                        that her brain tumor is not only inoperable but fatal, even dismissing
                                        the doctor in hope of getting a second opinion. Then she tries to take
                                        her mind off her troubles by helping make Sage's dress for the
                                        wedding, but Jack and Katie arrive to take the girl to her dance
                                        practice. As Jack complains about Carly's typically impulsive
                                        behavior, Katie remains worried that despite not being invited, her
                                        rival could still try to ruin the big day. " Definitely, its in the
                                        back of her mind," TC admits", " but she trusts that Jack won't let
                                        her do anything. Plus, they decided together not to invite Carly, so
                                        that eases her mind a bit that at least she won't be there. If
                                        something happens, it'll be that she shows up uninvited and all hell
                                        will break loose!" Still Katie knows that even though Carly won't be
                                        at the wedding, with Parker, JJ and Sage involved, their mom will
                                        always be a part of it." the actress smiles. " She just thinks that
                                        over time, their relationship will diminish as Katie's with Jack
                                        grows. Katie's such an optimist that she just doesn't let it get to her"

                                        The Big Day approaches:

                                        It may seem that Jack is rushing to the altar with Katie to avoid
                                        complications with Carly, but Park insists that his alter ego does
                                        truly care for his fiancee. " He's fully committed to marrying Katie,
                                        he declares. " Unfortunately, in soap operas marriage is taken quite
                                        lightly. But I really think Jack, with his past, takes marriage very
                                        seriously. So of course he's committed to marrying Katie. " Katie was
                                        there for him when he needed the pieces of his life picked up and put
                                        back together," he adds. " And she has proved to be nothing other than
                                        true and honest to Jack." Once upon a time, Katie was known to lie and
                                        cheat and scheme to win men, but this time, shes letting Carly play
                                        that game. " Because she doesn't need to, " TC says. " She feels like
                                        she's won already, so she doesn't have to do anything underhanded."

                                        Tragedy Strikes:
                                        As the final preparations are made at the Snyder Farm, where the
                                        ceremony will be held on Friday, Carly confesses her diagnosis to
                                        Brad. He wants to call more doctors, but Carly insists that she
                                        doesn't want to spoil his brother's wedding day. Receiving a video
                                        camera from his kids, Jack uses the gift to commemorate his future
                                        with Katie even as a wistful Carly reflects on her past. Through Carly
                                        has chosen not to rain on her ex's parade, will Jack discover the
                                        truth about her death sentence on his own and call a halt to the
                                        ceremony? "What ends up happening is that she is interfering with the
                                        wedding without intending to interfere in the wedding," JP previews. "
                                        In the beginning, certainly, she doesn't use it, but it happens that
                                        way anyway. " It will change things a lot for Jack and Katie, the
                                        scribe continues. " Because Jack may turn his back on Carly and be in
                                        love with another woman and see Carly and all her flaws very clearly,
                                        but he's still connected to Carly in very profound ways. And not just
                                        because of the children. This crisis in her life will be a shock of
                                        cold water." "Jack knows something is up, but he doesn't know what it
                                        is , " Park says of Carly's unusual behavior. " He just wants to have
                                        a nice day with his family and his friends and the woman who is going
                                        to be his wonderful wife. That's all he wants" But will Carly let him
                                        have it?

                                        AS THE WORLD TURNS
                                        A neurologist informs Carly that tests have revealed she has a lesion
                                        on her brain and only a few months to live. Carly tells Brad she's
                                        dying. Carly collapses unconscious on the street, and when she comes
                                        to she has no idea who she is. Craig tells Rosanna and Paul that he's
                                        suing them for freezing his assets. Rosanna is flooded with memories
                                        and tells Paul she remembers everything. Rosanna informs Craig that
                                        although he won't be returning to prison for the accident, he will be
                                        going back to prison. Rosanna says she will accuse Craig of switching
                                        the babies — a crime he wasn't tried for. Paul professes his undying
                                        love for Rosanna, and they make love. Post lovemaking, Paul proposes
                                        to Rosanna. Noah refuses to come out to his father. Dusty pours a

                                        surprises Col. Mayer by grabbing him. Col. Mayer pulls a gun and
                                        shoots. Later, Col. Mayer stashes Dusty in the trunk of his car.

                                        furious at the prospect of Taylor carrying Brooke's eggs.

                                        mix up, and Nick is livid that Brooke's eggs may have been implanted
                                        in Taylor. Nick is appalled with the possibility that his and Taylor's
                                        baby could be Brooke's. Bridget wants to tell Taylor of the possible
                                        mishap, but Nick says that Taylor must never be told. Brooke informs
                                        Nick that she was attacked and that her future is with Ridge. Nick
                                        wonders to himself what Brooke will do if she is the real mother of
                                        his baby with Taylor. Donna and Thorne meet for the first time since
                                        their wedding was called off. Thorne tells Donna she saved his life,
                                        and the two make clear that there are no hard feelings about their
                                        relationship. Ashley gets upset at Ridge for putting Brooke first.

                                        Brooke finds Ridge's engagement ring and assumes it is for her, which
                                        Ashley witnesses.

                                        Ridge immediately tells both women the ring is meant for Ashley, and
                                        rebuffs Brooke's continued attempts to win him back.

                                        Ashley insists that Rick allow her and Ridge to plan a future together.

                                        Brooke agrees to use her sex appeal to get Forrester out of financial
                                        trouble, but Ridge is horrified to learn she'll be modeling lingerie,
                                        considering her recent attack.

                                        Donna surprises Eric by turning up in his bed, as Eric becomes more
                                        committed to being with her.

                                        'Alan and Reva Commit Murder' preview article - There's a photo of
                                        Reva with blood on her hand looking horrified. Details emerge from
                                        their trip to California when they reveal that they killed someone.
                                        Ron Raines says this is something they have to cover up. Jeffrey is
                                        suspicious of Reva's behavior and starts investigating. These two
                                        people that can't stand each other are now acting like they are
                                        friends and Jeffrey picks up on it immediately. Alan burns his flight
                                        plan to California and hopes Reva stays mum. Emotions run high when
                                        Reva is haunted by a grisly nightmare involving Alan holding a gun.
                                        Alan is staying calm, thinking they will deal with any problems as
                                        they come up. Alan worries that Reva's romance with Jeffrey will
                                        jeopardize their secret so he demands she end that relationship and
                                        move into the Spaulding mansion. Alan tells her that some night when
                                        she's intimate with Jeffrey she is going to start telling him the dark
                                        secrets. Alan comes up with a story that he is helping Reva with the
                                        cancer foundation. Reva pushes Jeffrey away and prepares to move into
                                        the mansion. Other details about what happened remain a mystery and
                                        additional informatiom that won't be revealed on-screen will be found
                                        in the 'Jonathan's Story' book. Will Alan and Reva be able to keep
                                        their secret? "What happens in California, stays in California!" Ron
                                        Raines smiles. Well, for now...

                                        SPW...

                                        The mag calls Reva and Jeffrey 'A Hit'! - Just when GL fans were
                                        dreading another mouthful of the same Reva, Josh and Cassie stew, GL
                                        dished up the piping-hot chronicles of Reva and Jeffrey - and boy are
                                        they yummy!
                                        Daytime's newest non-couple has been doing a little cooking here and
                                        there, but since Olivia evicted Jeffrey and he accepted Reva's
                                        invitation to move into the Josh and Reva monument that is Cross
                                        Creek, they've become a veritable feast of laughs. The scenes where
                                        Reva scrambled around preparing for Jeffrey to come home were
                                        hilarious. "You always dress like that around the house?" he asked,
                                        admiring her saucy attire. She responded with the classic, "This old
                                        thing?" And planting War and Peace on the coffee table? Talk about
                                        overkill. But her efforts were comedic and relatable, and so were the
                                        moments when they discussed how much they've been through. Reva
                                        survived a battle with cancer and dealt with saying good-bye to
                                        Jonathan and Sarah (pretty heavy fare), so it's great that their
                                        frothy relationship is putting the "light" back in...well, you know.
                                        Even Jeffrey himself has aquired a brighter sheen, and not just
                                        because he walks around shirtless. The former sleazebag is charming,
                                        caring, funny - and deliciously sincere. During an impromptu session
                                        at Josh's retreat, Jeffrey jokingly (yet seriously) told Reva how much
                                        their relationship means to him. "No, I've got to let it out, I really
                                        do! Until I met this woman...I was never satisfied. Can I get an 'amen'?"
                                        Reva and Jeffrey are just the spice GL needed to stir the pot.
                                        Amen to that.

                                        'Reva and Alan: Dirty Little Secrets' preview article - A lot of the
                                        same info as SOD. Reva seems on the verge of telling Jeffrey the truth
                                        that she and Alan killed a man. Reva supposedly killed someone but
                                        evidently he was not dead. When the guy was about to kill Reva, Alan
                                        killed him. Alan keeps Reva from telling Jeffrey by faking a panic
                                        attack and having her move into the mansion so they can keep an eye on
                                        each other. "Alan's always trying to keep her calm," Ron Raines says.
                                        Also, Reva is still maintaining the secret charade that Jonathan and

                                        papers by making love. Post-lovemaking, Reva slips out the door and

                                        can act like it's no big deal that they killed someone. Alan says he's
                                        stepping down from Spaulding for while.

                                        Nikki/David Spoilers

                                        NIKKI/DAVID
                                        Nikki has a couple of confrontations with Victor which are all the
                                        more painful because they happen on their wedding anniversary. David
                                        gives Nikki a present for her wedding anniversary which is a card case
                                        to hold the key to his room. Vincent Irizarry is quoted as saying that
                                        David's gift was for the purpose of trying to inspire Nikki not to
                                        have another bad anniversay next year by staying married to Victor. He
                                        goes on to say that Nikki and David have been moving towards each
                                        other for quite some time and working hand in hand to come to this
                                        place. After she receives the gift from David Nikki has another blow
                                        up with Victor at the Athletic Club after which Nikki returns to David
                                        and they make love. According to VI the lovemaking is romantic,
                                        passionate and sweet. Latham is quoted as saying that Nikki is not
                                        "running to David as much as she is running away from Victor."
                                        According to LML Nikki feels totally abandoned by Victor and wants to
                                        get away from his viciousness and a relationship with David who has
                                        been so loving and supportive gives Nikki the opportunity to do so.

                                        Nikki/Jack/Katherine Spoilers

                                        NIKKI/JACK/KATHERINE
                                        When Jill asks Victor to release the tape of Jack admitting he owns
                                        Jabot Victor says he does not have it. But then the tape mysteriously
                                        appears on the news. Nikki and Victoria confront Victor who brushes
                                        them off. Jack tells Nikki and Katherine that they have to join
                                        forces. Jack calls a press conference where he denies the authenticity
                                        of the tape. Jack basically puts words in Nikki and Katherine's mouths
                                        during the news conference. Afterwards Jack wants to have a photo op
                                        with Nikki and Katherine but they don't want anything to do with him.
                                        Sharon is furious with Jack for lying toi the press. She wanted him to
                                        be honest for Noah's sake. Noah wants an explanation from Jack who
                                        lies to Noah which further infuriates Sharon. Later John appears to
                                        Jack and he too is furious with his son.

                                        Peter Bergman is quoted as saying that Jack took advantage of Victor
                                        when he was sick so it was understandable that Victor would go after
                                        Jack. But according to PB Jack never expected Victor to hurt Nikki
                                        this way. PB said that Victor's willingness to be so vicious to Nikki
                                        prove yet again how despicable Victor is. As for who wins PB said
                                        Victor's "winning a battle not a war."

                                        Lily — who's no fool — becomes attracted to Cane, as Devon tries to
                                        tell his "sister" he loves her. Also, Neil and Karen grow closer.
                                        Heather is aware of Adrian's shady past — will she reveal it? Look for

                                        attention, Gloria begins moonlighting as a drag queen at a local gay

Fans get an inside look at the actor's home as he chats with some of his closest friends. "Come and hang out in my garage!" Moss explains on the site. "Ronn's Garage will be a place to see me interview artists, musicians, actors, models and people I find interesting to share with you. Each month I will give you sneak peak into my home and an up close and personal interview. So sit back, relax and visit me in my garage often." The first installment of Ronn's Garage features an interview with his pal Lorenzo Lamas (ex-Hector, B&B), who also shows off his cooking skills in the kitchen with Moss's wife and Cookin' Cajun author, Devin DeVasquez.

                                            The fourth time is definitely a charm for Joshua Morrow (Nick, Y&R) and his wife Tobe, who are expecting a baby girl in November. The couple already have three sons, Cooper, 11, Crew, 7, and Cash, 4. "Tobe has such a close relationship with her mother that she always looked forward to having that with her own daughter," Morrow previously told Digest. "A few years after each of our sons was born, she would give me 'that look' and I knew, 'Uh, oh. She wants that little girl.' "

                                            Eden regains consciousness and calls the police

                                            Michael tells Heather that Ricky is dead – and Paul shot him!

                                            Heather wonders if Paul leapt to the wrong conclusion

                                            Kevin comforts Eden

                                            A shocked Paul is unable to tell the police exactly what happened

                                            Ronan coaxes a sobbing Paul into a confession: he shot Ricky to save Eden

                                            Lauren's silence on the gun's provenance makes Paul look even guiltier

                                            MONDAY, JULY 2, 2012

                                            At the fireworks display in the park, Jack and Nikki begin to celebrate Jack's birthday. They are interrupted when Victor arrives with Sharon, and Victor begins dropping insults in Jack's direction. Elsewhere in the park, Tucker is concerned when Ashley receives a call from Abby. When Abby declares that she is safe, Ashley demands to know how she can be positive that Abby truly IS safe. When Abby mentions a favorite story which Ashley used to read to Abby when they were in France, Ashley seems to be willing to accept Abby's reassurance that Abby is, indeed, safe. Ashley is stunned when Abby begins to confess that Abby was not actually kidnapped, but was sort-of responsible for her own disappearance - because she felt like she needed some way to distract everyone's attention away from the abysmal failure of the gala. When Tucker asks if Abby is OK, Abby hears Tucker's voice and hits the roof when she leaps to the conclusion that Ashley has reunited with Tucker. Ashley orders Abby to return home immediately! Elsewhere in the park, an interested bystander interrupts Victor, Jack, Sharon and Nikki to tell them how much she hopes that they soon find Abby. At the police station, Ronan welcomes Heather back to work and tries to reassure Heather that she was not responsible for the bad publicity which erupted after Phyllis published Ricky's photo of Heather in a compromising situation with Adam during a time when Adam was an important witness in a case which Heather was prosecuting. Ronan explains that he returned to Genoa City because Victor Newman asked for Ronan's help in finding Abby.
                                            At the same time, Lauren and Michael stop off at Crimson Lights for some coffee. While Lauren and Michael are discussing Daniel's arrest, Kevin arrives and reports that they have given up the search for Eden momentarily, because Chloe needed to take Delia home to put her to bed. Lauren becomes apprehensive when she learns that Eden had told Kevin that Eden believed that she might be able to discover evidence that Ricky had something to do with Daisy's disappearance.
                                            In the bathroom of Ricky's suite at The Athletic Club, Paul is stunned when he discovers Ricky, holding a knife to the throat of an unconscious Eden. As Ricky and Paul talk, Ricky begins to confess many of his crimes, including admitting that he "got rid of" Crazy Daisy. Although Paul attempts to convince Ricky to put the knife down, Ricky refuses and, instead, drops Eden and rises up with the knife in his hand. As Ricky rises up, Paul shoots Ricky in the shoulder, aiming to wound Ricky. Unfortunately, the impact of the bullet sends Ricky reeling backwards and Ricky crashes through the bathroom window and plummets to the ground below. Dazed, Paul rushes to the window and begins to melt down as he realizes that Ricky has fallen all the way to the ground. At that moment, Eden begins to regain consciousness. As Paul staggers back to the bedroom, Eden rushes to the window and looks down, realizing that it was Ricky who fell out of the window. Eden follows Paul, asking him what happened. Clutching Lauren's gun close to his body, a dazed Paul does not actually answer Eden's question but, instead, simply advises Eden to call the police.
                                            In the motel where Carmine and Abby are hiding out while on the run, Abby continues her hushed conversation with her mother. When Ashley orders Abby to return home immediately, Abby insists that she has to go, and hangs up the phone. Shortly afterward, Carmine comes out of the shower, clad only in a towel. Abby begins to have second thoughts about returning home right away. After Abby hangs up, Ashley explains the situation to Tucker and admits that Abby's "kidnapping" was apparently a hoax. Tucker accompanies Ashley when Ashley explains that she now needs to find Victor and admit that Victor was correct when he believed that Abby's "kidnapping" was just another publicity stunt. Shortly afterward, Ashley interrupts Jack and Victor's insult-fest and announces that Abby is safe. When Ashley hesitantly explains that Abby's abduction was a hoax, Victor reminds everyone that he was right about Abby's motives. Victor declares that, this time, they need to teach Abby a lesson - and inform Abby that she will need to find a way to get herself out of her current predicament, on her own! Sharon and Nikki decide that they must begin telling authorities that they have heard from Abby, and rush away to make the necessary calls.
                                            At the Genoa City Police Department, when the call comes in about the shooting at The Athletic club, Heather decides to head to the crime scene when she learns that Paul Williams was involved. Ronan insists that he accompany Heather and they rush away. Shortly afterward, Michael receives word that Ricky is dead and that Paul and Eden are at the scene of the crime. Michael reports to Kevin and Lauren that Eden is being taken to the hospital and that he needs to get to the crime scene right away. Kevin and Lauren insist upon accompanying Michael to the Athletic Club. In Ricky's suite at the Athletic Club, Paul is still in shock and is able to give only partial answers when the police officer attempts to interview him. When the police officer asks if the gun belongs to Paul, Paul says nothing. The investigating officer takes the gun from Paul and orders one of his officers to check the gun for fingerprints and to find out whether or not the gun is registered. When the officer continues to question Paul, Paul declares that he can't do this, and staggers out of the room. Downstairs, Lauren and Michael arrive and discover that Heather is on the scene. Michael explains that a police officer has confirmed that Ricky is dead and that Paul is being questioned about the incident. When Heather insists that she needs to speak to Paul, Michael advises her that Michael will go upstairs and speak to Paul, but Heather can't see Paul yet. Meanwhile, Ronan arrives at Ricky's suite and speaks to the investigating officer. The investigating officer informs Ronan that a witness heard one gunshot fired and it appears that the shot was fired by Paul. At the same time, another officer tests the gunpowder residue on Paul's hands. The investigating officer informs Ronan that he has not had any luck at convincing Paul to talk about the incident. Ronan reminds the investigating officer that Ronan knows Paul and has worked with him before. Ronan convinces the investigating officer to allow Ronan to speak to Paul. When Ronan begins speaking to Paul, Paul mentions that Ricky had a knife and was threatening to kill Eden. Paul explains that he tried to talk Ricky down and then tried to disarm Ricky with one shot, but Ricky fell backwards through the window. When Ronan asks if Eden could back up Paul's story, Paul declares that he believes so, because Eden was there. At the same time, however, as Eden is checked out at the hospital, the doctor informs Eden that they need to keep her overnight for observation. As Eden agrees, Kevin arrives and begins asking Eden what happened. Eden admits that she does not really remember how she got up to Ricky's suite - only that when she regained consciousness, she was on the floor of the bathroom in Ricky's suite. And when Eden looked out the broken bathroom window, she could see Ricky's body on the ground below. In their motel, on the run, Carmine returns to the bedroom after getting dressed. When he realizes that Abby is on the phone, he asks about her call. Abby quickly claims that she was calling for a pizza, but decided against it. Abby asks Carmine to sit down on the bed next to her and explains that she needs to speak to him. As Carmine explains that burgers will be fine with him, Abby changes the subject again and asks Carmine if he works out. Carmine is puzzled about Abby's sudden interest. Later, as Abby and Carmine sit on the bed together and attempt to figure out Sudoku games, Carmine admits that he is drowsy, and begins to doze off. When Abby tries to get comfortable, Carmine declares that she can lie on his shoulder, and Abby happily settles down.
                                            Downstairs in the bar at the Athletic Club, Lauren attempts to convince Heather that Paul would never hurt Ricky purposely. Michael soon joins them and reports that the hospital will be keeping Eden overnight for observation. As they chat, Heather mentions that Ronan accompanied her to the Athletic Club. Michael becomes alarmed when he learns that Ronan went upstairs, to Ricky's suite. Heather and Lauren are puzzled when Michael dashes away. At the same time, upstairs, in Ricky's suite, Ronan tries to get Paul to describe the knife for him. Paul looks into the bathroom, but can not see the knife. Michael arrives while Ronan is attempting to get Paul to describe the knife to him. After reassuring Paul that everything will be fine, Ronan speaks to the investigating officer and informs him that they need to speak to Eden right away, to find out whether or not Eden will be able to back up Paul's version of events. Ronan also explains to the investigating officer that they need to search for the knife. The investigating officer reports that they have not found the knife yet. Although Michael sits down with Paul, Paul appears to be too distraught to realize that Michael has arrived. The investigating officer suggests that one of the officers should take Paul downstairs, then reports that he will go directly to the hospital in order to speak to Eden. After the investigating officer leaves, Michael demands to know who deputized Ronan. Michael coldly informs Ronan that Ronan has NO standing in this investigation because Ronan has no jurisdiction in this case. Michael declares that Ronan's decision to question Paul is out of order, but Ronan reminds Michael that Ronan at least was able to get Paul to talk. When Paul arrives downstairs and sees Lauren and Heather, Paul breaks down and cries to Heather that he is sorry. When Paul begins to stagger toward the door, Heather reminds Paul that he can't leave yet - because the police still have more questions. Paul returns to the Athletic Club dining room with Heather and Lauren.
                                            Shortly afterward, the investigating officer arrives at the Hospital and tries to speak with Eden. Eden insists that she can not remember how she got to Ricky's room - or anything which happened while she was in Ricky's room. Kevin explains that Eden had told Kevin that Eden was convinced that Ricky knew something about Daisy's disappearance, and Eden was determined to find out what Ricky knew. Kevin explains that Eden sent a text message to Kevin, saying: "Big News." Eden remembers suspecting that Ricky might be involved in Daisy's disappearance. Eden states that when she regained consciousness in Ricky's room, she saw Paul at the window. When Paul left the room, Eden went to the window and looked down - and saw Ricky's body on the ground below. Eden declares that she saw the gun which Paul had in his hand - but did NOT see anything else. Eden declares that Paul was distraught and did not give Eden any explanation about anything which had happened - but had only suggested that Eden call the police. When the detective asks Eden if she remembers seeing a knife - Eden declares that she did not see a knife anywhere in Ricky's suite. Eden confirms that everything which led up to the incident in Ricky's suite is all a blank to her.
                                            As Jack and Nikki leave the park, Jack observes that Abby will have a hard time explaining her latest escapade - and an even harder time, trying to explain herself to Victor. Meanwhile, as Victor and Sharon stop off for coffee, Sharon tries to convince Victor not to be so hard on Abby and Victor agrees that he is willing to overlook everything - for the time being. At the same time, in the motel where Abby and Carmine are hiding out, Abby wakes up and realizes that she dozed off, still on the bed, next to Carmine. Abby slips outside and calls Ashley again. Abby catches Ashley just as Ashley and Tucker are sitting down at Crimson Lights for coffee. Ashley is stunned when Abby declares that she is not ready to come home yet - she needs to clear her head before she heads back to Genoa City. Ashley is miffed when Abby suddenly hangs up.
                                            At the Hospital, Kevin asks Eden if she wants Kevin to call Noah. When Eden explains that Noah headed back to New York - Eden realizes that she can remember speaking to Noah the day before - but still can't remember anything which happened in Ricky's room. Eden admits to Kevin that she is relieved that Ricky is dead.
                                            In the dining room of the Athletic Club, Michael and Lauren discuss the dazed look in Paul's eyes when they saw him. When Michael receives the preliminary report of the shooting, Michael is annoyed when he realizes that the police are concluding that the shooting was premeditated, because Paul used a gun which was not registered. Lauren suddenly realizes that Paul must have used the unregistered gun which Paul took from Lauren. At the same time, in the lobby of the Athletic Club, Ronan reports to Heather that they have discovered that Abby Newman is safe and that Abby's disappearance was a hoax. When the investigating officer returns, he reports to Ronan that Eden remembers seeing Paul with the gun, but does not remember seeing a knife. The officer also reports that none of the police officers have been able to find the knife which Paul reported. When the investigating officer declares that they will need to take Paul downtown, Ronan declares that he will get Paul, and heads to the dining room. When Ronan enters the dining room, he asks Michael and Lauren where Paul has gone - and Lauren insists that Paul is with Heather. When Ronan reports that Paul was not with Heather, they realize that Paul has disappeared.
                                            The following morning, in Los Angeles, Paul arrives at the psychiatric facility where Ricky's mother, Isabella, is being kept. When Paul tries to speak to her, Isabella keeps humming and combing her hair, with her back to Paul. As Paul declares that he has some terrible news to tell her, Isabella continues to hum and comb her hair, oblivious to Paul's presence.

                                            "Personally, I watched my entire storyline blow up around me. It's difficult when you're standing in the middle of a landmine."

                                            Translation: I must have killed the Pope in a past life because I can never catch a break on this soap!

                                            "I feel like I'm pushing boulders up a mountain."
                                            —Maria Arena Bell in a pre-taped Emmy segment
                                            Translation: And that's just Eric Braeden's ego!

                                            "Some old guy who has won a bunch of Emmys wins again? Is that really what Soaps need to grow a NEW audience? We need new judges' panels. Mr. Geary is FAR superior in his talent to most, including myself...by a million miles. But that category needs to get shaken up. Not even sure where 2 begin w/ @trevorstjohn. That man has been kicked in the balls countless years. Yo Trevor, I see ur talent! Florencia Lozano. Graciously gets punched in the nose every year. But she OWNS multiple Emmys in my mind. I'm an intelligent guy, I'm aware that my "speaking-out" & "opinions" GUARANTEE I won't EVER be nominated. I speak out 4 the quiet talent. Emmys need new blood...without bloodshed. Uh-oh. I guess I shouldn't be controversial with my opinions? What about being HONEST? Old-boys' club remains an old-boys' club. If I decide to participate in future Emmy reform, I will name my actions "The Beverly McKinsey Initiative." Who knew that some soap fans had such fragile sensibilities? Seems like the cruelest, inarticulate, foul-mouthed soap fans are the ones who don't allow for us to have strong opinions. #hypocritemuch In an industry that is EXTREMELY subjective we are bound to have clashing opinions. But fans' vitriol over some opinions are quite telling. And there is also a chance that a few fans are so myopic that their kind of outlook on the industry will be what kills it in the end. And if you can't see my meanings through my tweets, perhaps you're being obtuse. And there are quite a few people out there who have problems with figurative, hyperbolic language. Taking things SO seriously & literally. But 98% of y'all agree with me, and I'm proud of that. I'm only responsible for what I say, not what you understand."

                                            Translation: Suck my cock, bitches! Someone has to tell the truth in this in-denial industry!

There's still incredible equity in both of those brands. Maybe you haven't seen the last of them. Keep your fingers crossed."

                                            AWARDS SHOW CENTRAL
                                            GH Sweeps! WHO WON! WHO LOST! DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS RECAP!
                                            The 39th annual DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS went off without a hitch despite finding a network to air the kudofest just three weeks ago.

                                            HLN earned itself the most watched, regularly scheduled, non-news broadcast in the network's history. A reported 912,000 people tuned in; 327,000 among adults 25-54. Most impressively, over two million people tuned in to all five of HLN's Daytime Emmy broadcasts as a whole.

                                            However, the telecast's ratings were down from viewership of last year's CBS airing of the 38th Annual Daytime Emmys (5.4 million) by 83 per cent. Not bad considering many soap fans don't subscribe to the new cable network.

                                            Meanwhile, the show garnered a huge thumbs up from the cast and crew of daytime TV (despite the lack of an AMC/ONE LIFE video montage tribute). While the show could have been more entertaining and gelled a little more effectively from a production standpoint, the general consensus was that the show was a hit especially after the last two Emmy outings which resembled an advertorial for Las Vegas.

                                            The future of next year's telecast — its 40th anniversary — is now in question. But here's some good news: According to VARIETY, a new, televised award show that would combine elements of the Daytime Emmys, Sports Emmys and News & Documentary Emmys is in discussion at the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

                                            The hybrid event would launch no sooner than three or four years from now, NATAS chairman Malachy Wienges said yesterday, and would not replace any of the existing awards shows — but would seek to draw upon the added star power that the news and sports events provide.

                                            Wienges emphasized that the Daytime Emmys would continue in 2013 as a televised event.

                                            He believes getting a TV deal done sooner could help with rehabilitating the profile of the show, and plans to begin sitting down with prospective partners July 1. This year, negotiations for a new TV home didn't get underway until mid-March, after an arrangement with former producer Associated Television International (ATI) fell apart.

                                            The NATAS chairman dismissed the notion of the Daytime Emmys failing to find a TV home next year.

                                            "I guarantee my reputation on it," he said. "I didn't spend 31 years at CBS to give it all up."

                                            "We are wide open. We have two networks that are interested, alphabet networks, and we have three production companies interested, and Turner's interested … I've already engaged an attorney in Hollywood who's done probably dozens of these for different venues."

                                            Below are this year's winners:

                                            OUTSTANDING DRAMA SERIES
                                            GENERAL HOSPITAL
                                            Rushing to the podium, ousted executive producer Jill Farren Phelps made sure it was she who accepted the show's 11th Emmy Award — and not current show-runner Frank Valentini. However, Phelps, now producing HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS, was overwhelmed with emotion when she said she missed the "company of actors who have touched so many hearts for so many years." In a classy move, Phelps tipped her hat to the men that helped save GH from cancellation, Mr. and Mr. Cartini. "Somebody told me that the best stories are the ones that never end, so from the old guard to the new guard: Keep the magic going," she said. Predictably, Phelps and her producing team skipped the press room.

                                            OUTSTANDING WRITING IN A DRAMA
                                            DAYS OF OUR LIVES
                                            Truly the biggest upset of the night, DAYS took home its first Emmy in 36 years! Exiting head writers Marlene McPherson and Darrel Thomas were not on hand to accept the award but most surely must feel vindicated now after being fired. While the win wasn't completely undeserved, this means despised scribe and rumoured scabber Dena Higley will also get an Emmy since she wrote the show for nine months last year.

                                            OUTSTANDING DIRECTING IN A DRAMA
                                            GH
                                            The directing team opted to ignore the press room… shocker. Probably so they wouldn't have to discuss beating their boss, Frank Valentini, in this category.

                                            LEAD ACTOR IN A DRAMA
                                            Anthony Geary, GENERAL HOSPITAL
                                            Accepting his seventh career Daytime Emmy, making him the most fêted actor in NATAS history, Geary said, "It's a good way for GH to start [the night]." Geary won alongside his onscreen son, Jonathan Jackson.

                                            LEAD ACTRESS IN A DRAMA
                                            Heather Tom, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL
                                            The pregnant star made a lot of history this past weekend: Now only is she the first actress to win in the Younger, Supporting and now Lead categories, but she's also the first performer to win a Lead Actor Emmy after winning a Supporting trophy the year before. Tom also becomes the second B&B actress to win in this category (Susan Flannery has dominated this category). Seeing past Younger Actor winners, Jackson and Tom, win in mature Emmy categories really punctuated how long I've been covering this industry!

                                            SUPPORTING ACTOR
                                            Jonathan Jackson, GH
                                            Just call him the Jackson 5! Jackson, who was a lock to win his fifth trophy (second in this category), said backstage the win was "a testament to [TV dad] Anthony Geary and his humanity and love and graciousness toward me." He also name-checked scene partner Rebecca Herbst and "the monks on Mt. Athos who are ceaselessly praying for the life of the world." OK then.

                                            SUPPORTING ACTRESS
                                            Nancy Lee Grahn, GH
                                            "OH MY FRIGGIN GOD!!!!" NLG shared via Twitter! "I'M IN MY JAMMIES with my family who
                                            mean more to me than anything!!!! So TRULY happy!!!" Memo to all daytime actors: If you really
                                            want to win an Emmy, don't show up! Call it the Eric Braeden trick.

                                            "I'm thrilled," the first-time winner told UCNENSORED at the NBC/DAYS party after the ceremony. "I didn't expect to win this year. I knew I had the material to compete next year so this is a huge surprise. I guess this win means DAYS has to keep Will gay!" I'd say.

                                            YOUNGER ACTRESS
                                            Christel Khalil, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS
                                            "I guess the fourth time [nominated] is the charm, huh?" the ingénue said while accepting her award. Does she think her Emmy will translate into more screen time? "I doubt it," she said rolling her eyes.

                                            SOAPILEAKS:
                                            This Week's Hottest News, Gossip, and Reviews!

                                            • It's raining AMC stars over at Lifetime: the network has cast two soap alums in an upcoming episode of DROP DEAD DIVA! Ashley Jones and Cameron Mathison will both guest star in Episode 12 of the series' fourth season, set to air on Aug. 19.

                                            THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, CBS/CTV — Joanna Johnson Out! Why Adrienne Frantz Bolted!
                                            • Say it ain't so: Brad Bell tells UNCENSORED that Joanna Johnson will not continue to recur as often as he would like as Karen because "she booked a pilot." What does that mean for Crystal Chappell, who is hardly airing to begin with? "Don't worry," he assured me. "I'll keep her busy and in storyline." Whew.

                                            • I'm a sexy bitch, and I know it: Jackie MacInnes Wood is on fire: Not only did she earn her first Emmy nomination but the Toronto starlet is also stealing B&B, landed a role on GREEN ARROW and has been travelling the world to promote B&B while also starring in kick-ass music videos. Which usually means an upcoming exit is on the horizon, right? Never fear: Wood tells me her contract doesn't expire for a long time, and even if it did, she doubts she'd leave. "The great thing about working on a half-hour soap is that you can do it all," she pointed out. "I love it here. Why would I leave?"

                                            • Amber Alert: Adrienne Frantz asked to be dropped to recurring to pursue other projects, reported SOAPS IN DEPTH. However, UNCENSORED learned Frantz was not pleased with her lack of airtime so she quit — and cleaned out her dressing room in record time. "She wants back on Y&R, like, fast," a friend hinted at the Daytime Emmy Awards. The actress was recently accepted to an improv and comedy school affiliated with the Groundlings.

                                            However, at the CBS Emmy party, Frantz hung out very closely to boss Brad Bell.

                                            Unfortunately, the day before the Emmys, Frantz was involved in a car accident which resulted in a concussion after her car hit her vehicle going 60 miles per hour! "My dogs were in the car but luckily we're all safe. I'm lucky to be alive," she told me.

                                            As for married life, Frantz's handsome hubby Scott Bailey told UNCENSORED, "we're very happy."

                                            DAYS OF OUR LIVES, NBC/GLOBAL — Davidson's Awkward Sony Deal To Reprise DAYS Roles Exposed! Greg Vaughn Cast as Eric Brady! Gay-less DAYS Ahead!
                                            • Eric Brady, Sami's good twin, is finally headed back to Salem. Sources inform UNCENSORED that Greg Vaughn has nabbed the coveted role. Kyle Lowder, who played Brady on DAYS, pitched himself but the show thought it was too confusing for the audience to have Eric Martsolf—Brady's current portrayer on the canvas. Yet it's OK to have Josh Taylor's Chris K play Roman Brady?
                                            NOTE: Vaughan played Diego on Y&R

                                            Speaking of Vaughn and Sweeney, the duo will be working together a lot in the near future. According to DIGEST, the on-screen siblings will be teaming up for a Hallmark movie, which has begun production. "Finally signed, sealed & delivered! Starring in a new Hallmark Movie starting Wednesday opposite my girl @Ali_Sweeney!! Gonna be great fun!" the former GH actor tweeted.

                                            • Whoohoo: Eileen Davidson is indeed joining DAYS as Kristen and Susan, report my moles. But the story behind the worst-kept secret in daytime is more fascinating. Apparently, Sony's Steve Kent brought Davidson into his office and said, "I have good news and I have bad news. The bad news is that you're leaving Y&R because DAYS really wants and needs you." At first, Sony wanted Davidson on both DAYS and Y&R. However, sources say that the Y&R writing team refused to share Davidson with DAYS and forced Sony to make a decision, ultimately leading to her Y&R firing. But those sneaky Y&R writers lied to Davidson's face when she asked why she couldn't pull double duty on both Sony serials. The scribes insisted it was Sony's decision, which led to the actress's infamous tweet about learning she was fired (which now makes sense since we all knew she was merely being transplanted to DAYS). Needless to say Davidson is not a happy camper with the Y&R brass. Get in line, sweetie!


                                            THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS — Breaden Out Again! Alden Wants to Return to Y&R!
                                            • Here we go again: According to setside sources, Y&R is writing out Victor Newman during Eric Braeden's tumultuous contract negotiations around August. "It's not going well," says a mole. "The sticking point isn't necessarily money but his guarantee."

                                            In order to keep Braeden in line this time around (he bolted two years ago in a story I broke for TVGuide.ca and went on a media blitz prompting Braeden to embark on a media blitz tour after he refused to take a pay cut), the show decided write off TGVN in a surprising, inventive way that may redeem the controversial Shictor debacle. But don't quote me on that until I see how it translates onscreen.

                                            This probably explains why Braeden decided to attend the Daytime Emmy Awards, which he hasn't done in forever, to increase his profile during this uncertain time.

                                            Stay tuned to UNCENSORED for more on this developing story. And yes, I'm experiencing déjà vu again.

                                            • Oh, I miss my Jill Abbott: How is my transient former soap wife, Jess Walton, doing during her self-imposed, six-month Y&R hiatus in Oregon? "I'm very happy here," she tells me. Has she decided to come back to Y&R? "We'll see what happens in the fall, won't we?" Tease!

                                            • Does Sharon have a brain tumour? Nope.

                                            • Which Y&R actor is gaining a bit too much weight? Since he's a man, I doubt anyone will tell him to shed any weight.

                                            • Guess who's a Nelson Branco fan? B&B writer Kay Alden! "I've been dying to meet you forever," she cooed. "I've been a fan of your columns for years." When I asked her if she'd ever head-write Y&R again, she answered, "Yes, I would actually. Let's make that happen. I could write it with my friend Sally Sussman Morina." Makes sense since Alden and Morina were William Bell's only protégés other than his son, Brad. Considering B&B is heavy on writing talent, it could afford to lose Alden, who tells me she mainly focuses on breakdowns but also writes scripts and helps plot long-term storyline on the most watched daily serial on the planet. And it's nice to hear Alden and Morina are pals because in this business that's rare!

                                            • Congratulations to Joshua Morrow, who is expecting his fourth child with wife Tobe and his first daughter. Get this — Morrow's bambino is due on the same day his co-star and best friend Michael Muhney is expecting: Nov. 10! How rad! Hopefully, Muhney won't switch the babies this time around.

                                            • More next week: Holy f*ck, how amazing and super-romantic was Adam's proposal PRETTY IN PINK-inspired proposal to Chelsea this past week? There wasn't a dry seat in my house…. Nor near Chadam's! This. Is. How. It's. Done. Folks. Muhney continues to prove he can do no wrong… now if only Adam tweeted, too, we'd have a ball game.

                                              Kayla Ewell (ex-Caitlin, B&B; ex-Vicki, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES) stars in
                                              the Hallmark Movie Channel Original Premiere of NORMAN ROCKWELL'S
                                              SHUFFLETON'S BARBERSHOP. The actress joins Austin Stowell (ex-Jesse,
                                              THE SECRET LIFE OF THE AMERICAN TEENAGER) as Cole and Danny Glover as

                                              role, I couldn't pass up starring in one of the most heartfelt
                                              scripts I've read, honoring such an iconic American painting. To
                                              embody such a lovely character with an opportunity to sing and play
                                              instruments; and to be able to do it opposite Danny Glover and Austin
                                              Stowell, was a privilege. This is a touching movie that fills you
                                              with love and reminds you what matters most." SHUFFLETON'S BARBERSHOP
                                              premieres Saturday, June 1 at 9 p.m. on the Hallmark Movie Channel.

                                              like to personally confirm to the fans that yes, I have decided to
                                              leave THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. It has been a glorious 16 years and
                                              one of the greatest rides of my life. The constant support and love
                                              from the fans is not lost on me. I think I'll miss you the most." The

                                              secret - but can they keep that to themselves?
                                              When Bridget pays Brooke a visit, Brooke devises a plan of her
                                              own.

                                              Thomas, Marcus and Carter as models; how does this fit into her plans
                                              to keep Rick away from Maya? And when Caroline's uncle, Dollar Bill,
                                              gets involved and brings Maya's bad-boy baby-daddy Jesse to town,
                                              tensions run high. Will Jesse keep Maya away from Rick?

                                              tall and 25-28 years old. The character is described as self-assured,

                                              thought of the "All My Children" and "One Life to Live" reboots.

                                              "I think it´s wonderful. We´re closely watching with our friends at
                                              Prospect Park. I think the web is an amazing platform for this kind
                                              of storytelling. I hope those shows are very successful so that there
                                              will be an outcry for more and I´d like to be one of the people
                                              providing them." When asked about her possible return to daytime
                                              soaps, Bell said, "You never know! I love the genre and I also love
                                              the idea of doing a non-network soap and the issues that you could
                                              explore that you really can´t as much on a network." She added,
                                              "Things have gotten really politically correct and certain things are
                                              taboo and that´s not how soaps started. Soaps were groundbreaking on
                                              issues and much more exciting, so I think you can really do something
                                              online that could push the envelope a little more. I think you could
                                              really have some fun by thinking outside of the box, doing some new
                                              efforts in continuing drama. So, that´s what I´m really hopeful
                                              about. As you start a new production company or a new thing, you´ve
                                              got to have a lot of irons in the fire and just hope something
                                              connects. But I´m really excited. It´s a great time."

                                              for him that she is able to move on so quickly.

                                              Lily's party continues she explains herself. Tyler says he wanted to
                                              make sure
                                              she arrived home safely. Leslie reminds Tyler of Lily's marital
                                              status. Tyler
                                              understands and leaves. Lily tells Cane that leaving the fashion line
                                              was her
                                              idea. Alone, Leslie suggests to Neil that the feelings between Tyler
                                              and Lily
                                              don't seem to be one-sided. Later, Lily reads a blog post about her
                                              (the one
                                              from the other day). She and Cane wonder who could have post it.
                                              Tyler meets Noah and two ladies at OTB, small talk and flirtation
                                              ensues. The
                                              girls announce that they are moving and the boys offer to take up the
                                              place. At
                                              the new place [which is really Daniel's old apt.], Noah and his lady
                                              friend get
                                              hot and heavy, while Tyler and his lady friend are distant.

                                              COPD." Bernsen
                                              also shared with fans that his mother's body has been cremated and

                                              bookstores.

                                              In this informative tell-all, Bell reminisces on stories regarding
                                              the creation and growth of the most popular soap operas of all time
                                              and the man behind some of the most memorable storylines in daytime
                                              television. The foreword of the biography was written by

                                              -- how they met, fell in love, followed their dreams, and built a
                                              soap opera empire along the way. There's much of Bill's philosophies
                                              on serialized storytelling in the book and untold anecdotes from the

                                              DID A NOMINEE SUBMIT A 2013 EMMY REEL?
                                              SOAP CENTRAL founder Dan Kroll alerted UNCENSORED to the fact that
                                              Younger Actor nominee Max Ehrich had submitted an episode from
                                              January 1, 2013. Since eligible submission episodes must air during
                                              the 2012 calendar year, UNCENSORED asked Y&R´s amazing publicist
                                              Jimmy Freeman what was up.

                                              "Due to the tragic events at Sandy Hook, Y&R was affected by a
                                              pre-emption that pushed our New Year´s Eve show into Jan 1," says the
                                              rep. "After conferring with their awards committee and each of the
                                              daytime dramas NATAS made an allowance to include this particular
                                              episode into the eligibility period. The same opportunity was
                                              extended to the other pre-nominated and younger actors in the event a

                                              Canadian starlet to Hollyweird. Well, at least for the time being.
                                              When SOAP OPERA DIGEST reported in this week´s issue that Windsor,
                                              Ont., native would be leaving the show, fans and critics
                                              understandably freaked out.

                                              However, a B&B spokesperson would only confirm that the actress is
                                              taking a break from the role of Steffy Forrester Spencer.

                                              "Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is taking a short break, as she has done in
                                              the past, from B&B," said a show spokesperson. "She remains as the
                                              character of Steffy Forrester and is continuing to tape, currently
                                              with episodes airing through July of 2013 and then beyond. She´s in
                                              story through July and beyond and isn't leaving the show, just taking
                                              a break from contract as she has done several times for other
                                              projects."

                                              Makes sense since she´s arguably one of the hardest working young
                                              actresses in daytime. As Cher in CLUELESS famously said, "From far
                                              away, she´s OK, but up close, she´s a big ol´ mess," but while the
                                              stunning Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is more than OK from far away and
                                              up close, it´s Steffy that has had quite the chaotic life since
                                              making her mark in B&B´s Los Angeles.

                                              The once-polarizing Steffy, who only seemed to want what wasn´t hers,
                                              has evolved from man-stealing hussy to mature and well-rounded woman.
                                              She finally won the heart of the man she has been fighting for after
                                              all these years - and, for once, people don´t hate her for it.

                                              UNCENSORED caught up with the Daytime Emmy nominee three weeks ago
                                              before the news of her soap hiatus made headlines to dish on whether
                                              Liam really is the guy for Steffy or if she´s destined to be with
                                              Bill, bringing twin sister Phoebe back into the mix and the departure
                                              rumours. Pfft, please. Bitch isn´t going anywhere. (Oh, and we talked
                                              about cock. A lot.)

                                              Congrats on gracing a recent SOAPS IN DEPTH full-image cover! B&B
                                              never nabs the cover anymore.
                                              Wait a minute? We did? Oh, right... I remember. I haven´t seen it yet.
                                              I can´t wait.

                                              You look moregeous!
                                              Moregeous? I love that. I´m so going to use that! That outfit was
                                              pretty cool. I remember talking to Colleen Bell, who was in Paris
                                              Fashion Week, she actually saw a lot of dresses [like the one Steffy
                                              wore on her wedding day]. It´s very Valentino-inspired. I remember
                                              Colleen explaining the dress to me because I had no idea how I was
                                              going to ride a motorcycle in a long wedding gown. [Laughs] It
                                              could´ve been a disaster. But, once I saw the dress, I fell in love
                                              it immediately. I love the lace collar and the cape. It was
                                              different. I wasn´t expecting it.

                                              Lesli Kay wore a black wedding dress to her onscreen wedding to
                                              Antonio Sabato Jr. Would you consider Steffy a fashion-forward
                                              character? I think she´s the most cutting edge character in terms of
                                              fashion in daytime, for sure.
                                              Thank you. Yeah... You can really tell Steffy´s moods by what she´s
                                              wearing. I love fashion and I´m a big fan, too, so it´s cool to have
                                              Steffy wear fashion-forward clothes because that´s my style, too. She
                                              should be fashion-forward because her family owns a fashion house.

                                              Either that, or Steffy should be a crazy shrink like her mom. B&B is
                                              much more balanced now after your trifecta ate up the show last year!
                                              You guys resonate more now that the vets and the minority group have
                                              story, too. Are you happy that you´re not being shoved down
                                              everyone´s throats and oversaturating your story and character?
                                              Of course. Listen, I´m an actor but I´m still a viewer. I watched B&B
                                              long before I was on it. I get the viewers´ perspective of what they
                                              like and don´t. All I can say is "I´m an actor and I can only do what
                                              I do and I can only portray this character in this light and what
                                              they give me and make it work." But I completely get the
                                              [frustration] because even I get sick of seeing Steffy taking Liam´s
                                              crap. I´m like, "Walk away! Backhand him or something!" You want to
                                              fight for these characters so I get the Hope fans and Steffy fans.
                                              But now we have a good rhythm. And I´m enjoying this rhythm. I know
                                              people are going to love it and some people are going to be sick of
                                              it. But we have something good right now.

                                              Why do you think Steffy/Liam/Hope resonate with audiences?
                                              I think, at first, Liam was bouncing back and forth between Hope and
                                              Steffy but now they all have back story and they´re growing. You can
                                              see why Liam loves both women and how each character gel with each
                                              other. With Liam and Steffy, you got to see that relationship
                                              building from paragliding to partying. People relate to Liam and
                                              Steffy. You can also see that Liam loves Steffy by the way he looks
                                              at her. The same with Hope. I don´t think fans really got to see the
                                              love build between the two couples in the beginning.

                                              Is Steffy over Bill?
                                              That´s easy to play. There is still something there. I get that this
                                              is a soap and you can turn someone off the show very quickly but you
                                              can still play [nuance]. There´s history with everyone. Sometimes you
                                              see an ex, and it all comes rushing back to you. I´ve always played
                                              that there will always be something there. The fact that Bill dumped
                                              her the day that she fell into Liam´s arms means that there still has
                                              to be feelings there - and hopefully, twists and turns. Who knows?

                                              I didn´t like the triangle at first but it began to resonate with me
                                              around the time Steffy grew and evolved. Would you agree that´s when
                                              the trifecta began to resonate?

                                              Absolutely. Steffy being the vixen didn´t [mesh] with her back story
                                              so much but now that she´s maturing I feel that Steffy and Liam have
                                              something together. Steffy sees Bill and she sees herself. When she
                                              sees Liam, and this could be a bad thing, she sees a good guy who she
                                              has fun with. I feel like Liam is in love with Steffy but he loves
                                              Hope, you know what I mean?

                                              I agree. When this often-times frustrating triangle works best for me
                                              is when the beats impact and/or reference the ironic psychological
                                              history of Brooke/Ridge/Taylor. We´ve discussed this before but I
                                              love the subtext that Brooke is protecting her daughter, Hope, who is
                                              the Taylor in the equation, and Taylor is vying for her daughter,
                                              Steffy, who is the Brooke in this triangle. In that sense, this story
                                              is kind of brilliant and cathartic.
                                              I like that Brad wrote it that way. It´s fun to play. It can be
                                              challenging because it´s always changing. There is a good side to
                                              Steffy.

                                              I love Scott Clifton but he must lay some serious pipe for these two
                                              women to be acting like fools. Is Liam the love of Steffy´s life thus
                                              far?
                                              As a viewer, I don´t think so. She´s young. She loves him and he
                                              loves her but I don´t think the right guy has come and swept Steffy
                                              off her feet. She´s still waiting! Maybe a hot Latin boy will come in
                                              and make Liam a little jealous! [Laughs]

                                              I think Steffy needs a man.
                                              Yes.




                                              Do you think Steffy would fight for Liam as hard as she is if it was
                                              anyone other than Hope in this equation? Steffy´s always been
                                              unconditionally protective and loyal to Taylor....
                                              No. I think it´s ego. There is a part of her that wants to win. Even
                                              though she´s trying to be mature about it, Steffy has what she wants
                                              now, so she doesn´t want any drama but if Liam was with Hope who
                                              knows what would happen? I think Steffy would revert back to her
                                              tactics. Yes, the maturity is there but when ego gets in the way...
                                              Yes, there is love and passion there but there is also a sense of,
                                              "Hahaha, I have him."

                                              Why do you think Steffy doesn´t like and respect Brooke? I mean,
                                              Brooke raised Phoebe, Thomas and Steffy for a big part of their
                                              childhood. Is it because Steffy and Brooke are more alike?
                                              They are alike. I think Steffy´s beef with Brooke is: I´m like this
                                              because you raised me like this. Even though Brooke took care of
                                              Steffy for many years, at the end of the day, her mom is her mom, you
                                              know? It´s like anyone... if someone messes with her parents, you´re
                                              not going to like that person whatever the history is. Steffy has her
                                              family´s back. She´s watched Taylor shed enough tears because of
                                              Brooke so Steffy´s like, "OK, I´ll play your game." She can handle
                                              Brooke for a bit, like at a dinner or family event, but the bad
                                              memories come back fast and furiously - especially if there´s a glass
                                              of wine involved. She can only fake it for so long.

                                              It´s been confirmed that Bill is a "stallion." Is Liam a mini
                                              stallion? Can you confirm or deny this?
                                              I can confirm! Hello - that has to be the reason. Ding!

                                              Scott thanks you. Were you surprised Steffy got pregnant?
                                              I wasn´t expecting that at all! I was up for it, though. That´s my
                                              job as an actor. But the more they wrote it, the more I fell in love
                                              with the story. I´m really, really enjoying what´s going to happen.

                                              Has Steffy´s pregnancy given you any real-life ideas about
                                              motherhood?
                                              [Pauses] I haven´t thought that far ahead. I´m not ready. Maybe one
                                              day, but it´s not in my near future. It´s cool to play pregnant on TV
                                              but I´m not ready for it. I can´t believe all the stuff Heather Tom
                                              has to do with taking care of a newborn after only a month off,
                                              memorize lines, etc. It´s unbelievable.

                                              You must love being on a soap despite the stigma? I mean, you´re on
                                              an internationally hit show, starring in a story that is responsible
                                              for the show´s high ratings, you´re a two-time Daytime Emmy
                                              Award-nominated actress... even though you´ve done well in films and
                                              prime time? No thoughts of leaving?
                                              I look back, when you´re in the entertainment industry, you hear big
                                              actors say, "Oh, I wish I had this," but you should be happy with
                                              what you have. And I´m happy. I´m lucky to have worked outside of
                                              daytime because I have an incredible boss who has allowed me to do
                                              that since I am contractually obligated to B&B. That´s why I´m happy
                                              to stay here and keep it going. There could be a stigma but if you
                                              can have people on DANCING WITH THE STARS be leads in films, why
                                              can´t a soap star cross over and do all of it? I´m so lucky and
                                              blessed to be here. I live day by day. If you live in the future, you
                                              start wishing your life away. I´m happy I got to play this character.
                                              I have such an incredible boss in Brad Bell. He lets me do other
                                              things. He´s made me want to stay here while pursuing other things. I
                                              want to do all of it! I´m very blessed. I live it day by day and live
                                              in the moment. I like being able to do daytime, prime time and films
                                              all at the same time."



                                              Do you miss Ronn Moss and Susan Flannery?
                                              Wow, well it´s tough not to have Susan around to say, "Get your shit
                                              together!" I miss that! I absolutely love the woman. She´s been an
                                              incredible influence on me and she´s taught me so much. I remember on
                                              day one being so excited but so terrified of working with her because
                                              she has that one look that will tell you if she loves or hates you.
                                              But we warmed up to each other right away. I miss her presence and I
                                              miss Steffy and Stephanie´s scenes. I miss her direction on set, too.
                                              She had that control to say, "Hey guys, let´s do that scene again." I
                                              keep in touch with her and we text each other. I have plans to see
                                              her in Santa Barbara. I miss Ronn, too. But I´m excited for all that
                                              he´s doing. I keep in touch with Ronn as well. It was sad to see him
                                              go because we´d just look at each other and laugh. We were always on
                                              the same level. We got it. I miss that.

                                              Was it shocking to learn you were losing both original actors at
                                              once?
                                              It was with Ronn. With Susan, I knew it was coming. I knew she was
                                              going to retire soon, but I was worried because the show needs both
                                              of them. "How were we going to do the show without them?" I asked.
                                              But we just had to keep trucking. It was a tough day when Steffy said
                                              go
