Today, three names of the contestant list for the new season of Dancing with the Stars were leaked to the media and on the top of the list was Soap icon, Jack Wagner (Nick, B&B, Frisco GH, Peter, Melrose Place)!

Wagner who was just taken off contract by The Bold and the Beautiful certainly has some time on his hands right now, while looking for his next project to do the Cha-Cha and other dances in the ballroom competition!

Along with Wagner, The View’s Sherri Shepherd, and Little House on the Prairie star, Melissa Gilbert’s name have also been attached to the new season, according to TMZ.com!

The official announcement of the full list of contestants won’t come till this coming Tuesday morning at 7AMEST from ABC, but after last season’s interesting array of competitors, it will be intriguing to see who is added to the mix and if these three Wagner, Shepherd and Gilbert are confirmed.  What do you think of Jack Wagner as a contestant in the ballroom dance competition? Let us know!

I will not anything on ABC except GH. If he is indeed dancing this season then the execs have an ulterior motive.

I agree. I’m boycotting ABC totally except for General Hospital. ABC is very GREEDY and doesn’t care about the hundreds of thousands of soap fans that they’ve disappointed nor do they care about the hundreds and hundreds of people they put out of work. The reality shows take just a few people…. hosts, cameramen, director and a few more. The soaps employed hundreds.

I don’t watch much of abc, however, I could never give up my REVENGE on Wednesday nights.

I believe JW will be on dwts. What else does he have to do besides play golf?
Also he LOVES attention. What better way??

Michele

YES!! I’ll be watching, rooting for Jack, for sure. Here’s hoping this is a sign that ABC and GH is bring Jack back as our beloved character Frisco Jones!

Where-ever Jack will be seen,i will be behind him.

I like DWTS but will have to miss this season. I, along with hundreds of thousands of soap opera fans, am boycotting ABC for the cancellation of All my Children and One Life to Live. I won’t watch (and haven’t for months and months) ABC except for General Hospital. When that goes, so do I. I hope many others boycott ABC too. They didn’t care about their loyal fans at all when they cancelled our beloved and iconic soap operas after 43 years. These were truly great shows but cost more to make than those silly reality shows. ABC is just GREEDY and cancelled these shows without caring at all about the fans or the many, many job that were lost. Shame on ABC !!!

Watch “DWTS” and if you have no favorites, vote for Jack Wagner so he can stay on longer and bring more attention to “GH”, because we can guess that he’s returning.

Don’t worry I will! I love Jack Wagner boy did Brad Bell step into it by letting this guy go! If GH scores him I will be forever grateful Sonny who?

Hes had work I see, doesnt look like the guy I knew….hes squiting eyes made him hot.
And was darker….hummmm

Probably has had some work done, but I don’t blame him for it and he still looks great.

Would rather see him on B&B, but if not, DWTS is fine. But I thought he was rumored before. Maybe now he’s not on contract on B&B he’ll do it. Maybe then B&B will rethink their letting him go. C’mon! So tired of B&B revolving around Hope and Liam and Steffy. All the characters are involved in that storyline and it’s too much!!!!!

I’ll miss Jack Wagner and his sexiness on Bold and Beautiful as well. Brad Bell is making a huge mistake letting Wagner go, but oh well. B&B’s loss will hopefully be GH’s gain. I won’t be watching DWTS though. I’ll just watch his perfomances on Youtube, since I’m sure somebody will eventually post them there.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
