Congratulations are in order for One Life to Live lovebirds, Terri Conn (Aubrey) and Austin Peck (Rick) who recently became engaged! According to a source for Soaps In Depth, Peck proposed to Conn, and then the news of their engagement was confirmed just a weekend ago at Saturday night’s kick-off Emmy bash in Las Vegas at the Nikki Beach held by Innovative Artists.

As many know, Conn and Peck met while they both were working on As the World Turns during their time playing Katie and Brad.  This will be the second marriage for each of them.

On-Air On-Soaps had the opportunity to speak with Conn and Peck backstage in the Winner’s Walk area of the press room after the live telecast of Sunday night’s 38th Annual Daytime Emmys. During our chitchat, Terri and Austin talk about their thoughts on Emmy night, upcoming story for their characters: Aubrey and Rick, and how they feel about the cancellation of OLTL.  Of note, as many had also stated, Terri speaks out that Erika Slezak should have been honored during the telecast for her amazing 40 year run as Viki on One Life to Live. We could not agree with her more!

Watch our cute video interview with Terri and Austin after the jump!

Mike, I enjoyed your interview with Austin and Terry. Congrats to them on their engagement. Terrry is so good on OLTL. She plays that character perfectly. Now it seems that she has changed her tune and she is left out in the cold. Interesting…Austin plays the sleazy porn producer very well, and from your interview he seems to be hinting that his character will be involved in some nefarious shenanigans. Should be good….

Yeah why not congratulate two people who met on a set and cheated on their spouses because that’s what the soaps are all about, right? Tsk Tsk, we should all be so lucky!

Hey wednesday you noticed I did not congratulate them I agreed with them on Erika not being mentioned. Just remember if you cheat once you will cheat again but I really could care less about either one of them personally or really as actors they never impressed me either!!!

They make a cute couple. I saw them at the Grove in Los Angeles on September 1, 2011, walking hand in hand as if they were the only ones there. They seemed very much in LOVE. Good Luck and Best Wishes!!!

Congradulations on your marriage. I have enjoyed watching you on Another World and One Life to Live. I am hoping you will return to Days Of Our Lives, Austin and maybe they will write a part for you too Terri. I wish you both much happiness and a long and happy marriage.

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.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Exit Days of our Lives

Coming up on Days of our Lives, both Lani and Eli Grant will be written off the canvas to facilitate the departures of Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani).

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Archey who stepped into the role in 2017, has made the decision to leave the long-running NBC soap opera, and will last air the week of July 4.

As for Stowers, she will last air on Friday, July 1st, and given her current storyline, it looks like Lani, who has confessed to murdering TJ (William Christian), will either be sent to prison, or will exit Salem with Eli.

This would not be the first-time that Stowers has departed DAYS.  After her debut in 2015, she was off the Salem canvas for a six-month break in 2016, before returning to the show through 2022.

We will share more information on Lamon and Sal’s exits as it comes to light.

It was about to come true, until I tested positive for Covid yesterday afternoon. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to celebrate with everyone on Friday. I’ve cried lots of tears.  Thankfully, I’m asymptomatic. I’m super grateful no one in our home is sick. What a blessing.  To my Daytime community, have the best time. Wish I could be there but I’ll be watching from home and cheering on all of the nominees! Y&R bring home the gold! Love you all! And to everyone at CBS and Sony thank you for everything. So grateful to play Abby. @youngandrestlesscbs.  To my amazing parents, I’m so sorry that this weekend has fallen apart. I was so excited to attend the awards with you.
