The soap opera success of Daytime Emmy winner Shemar Moore as Malcolm Winters has yet to be replicated on The Young and the Restless, or its sister soap The Bold and the Beautiful. 

However, Ebony.com takes a look at the three of the latest crop of soap stars who are heating up the afternoon that are giving CBS Daytime fans some hotties, and Shemar, a run for his money!

First, Ebony spoke with Redaric Williams (Tyler, Y&R) who revealed how the name “Redaric” came about! Apparently, “Williams dabbled in a career as a conscious rapper—that’s how his unique “Redaric” moniker came to fruition (his real name is Jimmy).”  Redaric explained his name in more detail:  “It stems from the word red.  People have been calling me that for years because of my skin tone from the time I was a little kid. I was doing music before any of this stuff so when I was looking for a name to use, nothing (else) was really giving me that feeling. I always liked Greek words. I came across the word rhetoric, [which means] the art of language, conveying a message to an audience. I took that word, changed the spelling of it, and incorporated the word red in it.”

Lamon Archey (Mason, Y&R) spoke on the transition from his modeling days to acting, when a talent agent who scouted him from his San Francisco modeling agency promised that if he took acting classes, he could get him cast on a soap opera. Two years later, he got the call.  Lamon remembered, “I was picking up my son home from school and pulled over on the side of the road, got out of the car and did a couple of jumps. I was so pumped!”

Lawrence Saint-Victor who first appeared to daytime fans on Guiding Light, found his second soap home recently with his new role on B&B as Carter Walton.   Saint-Victgor talked about the rigors of being a soap hunk and looking good in scenes … shirtless!  “It’s something I didn’t think about when I was training, but I knew it was something I had to be aware of.  That’s why I stayed in the gym. When you join a show called The Bold and the Beautiful, you have to go hard.”

So, who would you rate as the hottest new addition to CBS Daytime, Redaric, Lamon or Lawrence?   Which of their characters do you enjoy the most …. Tyler, Mason or Carter?  Share your thoughts below!

Is there a magazine called “Ivory”?

Yes, you might know them as People, US Weekly, Time, and so many, many others.

I beg to differ. Lots of Obama, Will & Jada, Beyonce, etc. covers on those magazines. Double standards and racism are just that, double standards and racism. That cannot be explained away with flimsy responses like this.

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
