This kind of longevity could not have happened to a nicer guy and one hell of an actor! Of course, we are celebrating today the 40th anniversary of Daytime Emmy- winner Doug Davidson of The Young and the Restless.

As Doug Williams he is vital to solving crimes and investigating the nefarious and criminal activity in Genoa City!

Who can forget some of Paul’s most memorable moments which included: a 1986 storyline with Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) who submitted a snapshot of a naked Paul for a contest and he became a national centerfold, and then how his mother Mary Williams (Carolyn Conwell) saw it! Let’s not forget in 2002, when Paul was romantically involved with Isabella (Eva Longoria) who gave birth to their son, Ricky … and who tried to kill Christine (Lauralee Bell). In 2012, a grown-up Ricky (Peter Porte) returned to Genoa City and was revealed to be a killer. In an ironic twist, Paul shot his son, who fell out a window to his death.

And in perhaps one of the more touching moments, at the written request of the late Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper), Christine and Paul were remarried at Chancellor Park. In 2014, Paul discovered he had a son, Dylan (Steve Burton), who later entered the Witness Protection Program.

All through the day, Doug’s Y&R cast members have been posting videos from the humorous to the sincere and tweets paying tribute to him including: Eric Braeden (Victor), Jason Thompson (Billy), Kristoff St. John (Neil), Lauralee Bell (Christine), as well as GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) and Steve Burton (Jason).

In response to the many messages he received throughout the day, Davidson tweeted: “Seriously, I don’t know how to thank you all. I am so blessed to have so much love showered upon me. I thank you all for your compassion. God bless you all.”

Share your congratulations and well-wishes for Doug for his four decade run on Y&R. Then let us know, what has been your favorite Paul Williams story, or moment of all-time via the comment section below!

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
