A lot of out of work ex-soapers out here who could use the work for health benefits! C’mon Maria! Get with the program….

Agree-would love to see our soap stars any day over ANYONE else! Miss you!

Kim Zimmer, I love you and I miss you and GL and ATWT so much. It was like 2 deaths, as I remember first watching both soaps with my grandmother.

I was so disappointed when you turned down the role of Katherine’s faux daughter and I was equally disappointed with the short-lived air-time Maura West was given. That said, I did and do enjoy Marcy Rylan and Jeff Branson on Y&R.

I would much rather see former CBS soap stars in new or recast roles on Y&R instead of vets from other networks, but I understand other network fans probably appreciate it.

I loved seeing Jon Hensley on B&B. I tuned in on that day for that reason. I would love to see Tom Pelphrey, Martha Byrne, Maura West [in a role worthy of her], Michael Park, Elizabeth Hubbard, Larry Bryggman, Daniel Cosgrove, Jon Hensley, etc. and of course YOU rather than Genie Francis and others who are not and never will be the faces of Y&R. I am looking forward to Jennifer Landon coming aboard but I think bringing back Vail Bloom would have worked as well.

I appreciate so much being able to reply to your comment. Thanks Michael Fairman.

Oops. Sorry, I forgot to also mention John Driscoll and perhaps others.

Cool, love Brett Butler!

Oh dear……………………MAB!!!!????????
Don’t know what to say or think! See how well she plays!

Do you think there is anyway Oprah would consider NOW putting OLTL and AMC on her network? It would give her the viewership she wants!!!!!

Yawn. Tired of hearing about Oprah’s problems.

There is another thread devoted to this subject already.

I doubt she will.

I miss Michael Muhney.

Let HIM don a wig and play the part. Give him some work!!

MAB drives me NUTS!!! As Miss Zimmer said, there are a lot of ex-soap stars looking for work. She also has actors on her own show with nothing to do!!! What will it take to make this woman see the mess she is making of this once great soap?

Lew, their is nothing ! Her last name is Bell she to my knowledge has no writing experience she has arrogance and I am never wrong attitude! You know why she hired Catherine Bach she knew her from children’s daycare, oh wow what a resume. I hate talking this woman down as much as I do but with soaps dying and we are down to 4 people. CBS, Sony somebody step up and STOP THE MADNESS!!! By the way Ms. Zimmer would have knocked the role Catherine Bach got out of the ballpark, her & Eric Braeden dynamite.

Where she been have not seen her in long time

MAB is clueless. I don’t mean to be mean, but she and her minions are destroying this treasure of a show. When will the madness stop? When will the decision makers save Y&R before it becomes too late?

Like Brett Butler, but Y&R has a big, bloated cast. Also agree with Kim Zimmer (The Kim Zimmer!?) there are ALOT of talented, missed, loved, soap actors who could use the gig. As a viewer, i would prefer to see these soap stars, even for a brief stint.

Really? Like this is supposed to be worthy of news? Give me one of my beloved soap stars without a sopa home and THAT will be news worth crowing about; not an I-haven’t-seen-her-for so-long-I-almost-forgot-who-she-is-“star”. Yawn.


The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood to Visit ‘The Talk’

Hot on the heels of this week’s shocking and controversial episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, three-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) is one of the guests on the upcoming Monday March 4th episode of The Talk.

Wood, has been at the epicenter of the storyline, which saw this past Monday that Steffy presumably stabbed and killed villainess Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) to her death. Following Sheila’s apparent demise, Steffy’s husband Finn (Tanner Novlan), who is the biological son of Sheila, finds out his wife stabbed his mother.

Instead of showing more concern for his wife almost being attacked by Sheila, Finn has shown his ‘inner-Sheila and can’t seem to get over the fact that Steffy ‘killed’ his birth mom, which is causing trouble in their marriage and as fans ultimately believe, will lead Finn into the arms of Hope (Annika Noelle).

Clearly, Jacqui will have plenty to ‘talk’ about with The Talk co-hosts: Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood.

In addition to Wood, The Talk will also welcome actor Scott Caan (son of the late James Caan) who will be on-hand to promote the premiere of his Fox series, Alert: Missing Persons Unit which begins its new season on Tuesday night, March 5th.

The Talk airs on CBS and streams live and on demand on Paramount+ weekdays at 2:00 p.m. ET/1:00 p.m. PT.

So, are you rooting for Steffy in this one? Should she break-up with Finn? Will Sheila be revealed alive in a few months? Comment below.

Steve Burton’s ‘General Hospital’ Return Previews Jason Has Blood on His Hands

Monday, March 4th is the day that Steve Burton returns to General Hospital in the pivotal role of Jason Morgan. The story of Jason’s re-emergence on the canvas has been kept under wraps.

However, PEOPLE has a first-look photo, and in it, Jason has blood on his hand. Not only does he have crimson on him, but he is dressed in black and standing behind a dumpster.

When viewers last saw Jason it was back in November of 2021, when a tunnel collapsed on him as he was attempting to save his brother Drew (Cameron Mathison). For the past two plus years, every one in Port Charles has believed that Jason had died.

Burton’s initial run as Jason was from from 1991 till 2012. After exiting and signing on with Y&R to play Dylan McAcoy, the actor eventually returned to the daytime drama that was his home in 2017. Later, during the Covid-19 pandemic, he was let go from the series by the end of 2021 for not adhering to the Disney/ABC vaccine mandates at that time.

While away from GH, he rejoined the cast of Days of our Lives in 2023, resuming his original soap role of Harris Michaels that he played in 1988 and the year prior on the Peacock limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter Two. With the tape schedule well ahead of streaming, Burton will be doing double duty for a short term, where fans can catch him on DAYS, and now on GH.

Previously, Burton said on his upcoming GH storyline, “I got to talk to the head writers. This story is going to be sick. It’s gonna be awesome. So, make sure you keep watching, because the pieces of the puzzle are gonna be fit for when I return.”

Fans should also make sure to catch today’s Friday, March 1st episode of GH as Jason’s return story begins to unfold.

So, what do you think will be how Jason returns to GH starting next week on all-new episodes of GH? Comment below.

Jacob Young shared an exclusive that he is set to direct, produce and star in a Agatha Christie-like murder mystery feature film aptly tiled Murder Between Friends.

Speaking on the upcoming project, Jacob said, “I’m flying at the end of the March to Prague to direct, produce and star in a film with Joan Collins (ex-Dynasty). Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives) is in it, and Toby Alexander Smith from Eastenders (ex-Gray Atkins). Plus, a couple of my Broadway friends and a very well known Czech actress (Hana Vagnerova).”

According to Jacob, the production start date is April 1st. He added on the premise of the film, “It’s very Agatha Christie sort of ‘Knives Out’ without having a hundred million dollars to shoot it, but still will be a lovely film nonetheless.” Young said the plan is to finish all principal photography by April 17th.

IMDb has more on the film. It shared that former All My Children star Trent Garrett (ex-Asher Pike) is listed as co-directing the feature. Mark Rozzano is listed as writer of Murder Between Friends.
