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.

CW’s Batwoman TV Series Looking For Out Lesbian Actress To Play Title Role

In some intriguing casting news, the upcoming Batwoman series currently in development for The CW will feature TV’s first gay superhero character that is a series lead.

But on top of that, news today via TVLine has that the series is seeking an out lesbian actress to play the title role of Batwoman aka Kate Kane.  They are looking for an actress ages 25-29 of any ethnicity.

As to the log lines of the series, here’s what was released: “A wealthy socialite who calls Gotham home, Batwoman’s Kate Kane is described as ‘armed with a passion for social justice and a flair for speaking her mind,’ while physically she is a ‘highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence.’ But don’t call her a hero yet.  In a city desperate for a savior, Kate must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Look for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television to helm the development deal.  Caroline Dries, an out lesbian, will be the head writer. She is best known for her work on The Vampire Diaries.

Batwoman/ Kate Kane will be first seen this fall in a four-way crossover event between ArrowThe FlashSupergirl and Legends of Tomorrow with the goal for the character to land her own series.

So, which lesbian actress should play CW’s LGBT super hero? Share your suggestions and thoughts in the comment section below.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
