In very tough news to read today across social media, One Life to Live alum, Eddie Alderson (Ex-Matthew Buchanan) came forward via his Instagram account that he had been diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer.

Eddie shared: “This weekend has been a crazy one to say the least. Some of you may already know, but Friday I was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer and will begin chemo therapy sometime this week. While this journey may not be easy, I know that together with all of my family and friends, we will beat this! Just a bump on the road of life.  I will keep you all updated as we go along.”

And in a heart-tugging photo on her Instagram account, Eddie’s sister, Kristen Alderson (Ex-Starr OLTL and GH, Ex-Kiki, GH) shared this:  “My beyond precious and amazing brother (and best friend) Eddie Alderson got diagnosed with Lymphoma Cancer last Friday. Ever since, we’ve been surrounded by love, support, and optimism. He is so strong and determined, I know he’ll beat this. Please pray for Eddie’s journey w/ us. I’ll keep you all updated as always.”

UPDATE this afternoon:  Kristen took to her twitter account with more news on Eddie’s health scare: “The power of prayer is amazing. As of this morning, Eddie was scheduled for surgery tonight.  They said his first biopsy did not have enough tissue to determine the exact kind of lymphoma. This would have pushed his diagnosis/treatment and would have meant more time in the hospital.  Only four hours after he announced with cancer (and you all responded with such beautiful words and prayer) a doctor came in and said he no longer needed surgery! They were able to diagnose him using the sample they already had. (GREAT news). And he officially has Hodgkins Lymphoma, (w2hich is very treatable). He’s going home today and will start chemotherapy on Monday.”

Share your well-wishes and thoughts for Eddie as he begins his chemo and treatment in the days ahead in the comment section below.

It is a very scary thing to hear that diagnosis and to be hospitalized.

When I was battling cancer many years ago one thing that kept my spirits up was knowing there were survivors out there. We know you will be one of us!

This is a condition very close to my heart. Some of you may recall the story of Mandi Schwartz….the 23 year old Yale scholarship female hockey player who died of leukemia in 2011. Her story inspired thousands in North America to donate cord blood…and become all kinds of donors for people with this condition. Mandi was my little cousin…born and raised in small town Saskatchewan, Canada…and by age 21 she was a leading player at Yale! So Eddie and his family are in my prayers!! He is a very talented young man and deserves a bright future!

GH’s Maurice Benard Launches ‘State of Mind’ Website

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Coinrthos) had been teasing on social media that he was about to debut on Sunday.  Well, it’s here! Benard has launched his brand new website, MB’s State of Mind (www.mbstateofmind.com).

On the site homepage is Benard’s mission statement.  The two-time Daytime Emmy-winner expressed: “State of Mind to me means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.”

The new site features merchandise including:’State of Mind” t-shirts in various colors, as well as way to pre-order Maurice’s upcoming memoir, Nothing General About it.   In addition, Benard shares his “Sunday Sessions” in a special section, as well as his upcoming tour dates, with more content to come.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.

As many know, Benard is a mental health advocate having been very open about his own struggles with mental illness over the years, and how he wants to continue to dispel the stigma of those who battle with it.

The new site offers links to three organizations close to Maurice: Nami (National Alliance of Mental Health), Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services, and the International Bipolar Foundation.

Maurice released a video talking about how ‘State of Mind’ came to him one night following an anxiety attack.  Watch it below.

DYNASTY Ups Four To Series Regulars As Season Three Kicks-Off

Just in time for the start of the new season of CWs deliciously wicked soap reboot of Dynasty! News on Friday has that four members of the cast have been upped to series regular, meaning they will be pivotal in story and see a lot more screen time.

According to Deadline:  the third actress to play Cristal Jennings, Daniella Alonso, who debuts tonight in the season three opener has been made series regular. Along with the previously recurring: Michael Michele (Dominique Devereaux), Sam Underwood (Adam Carrington) and Adam Huber (Liam), who have now been upped to major cast status.

Additionally, Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) seemed to have taken over the the role of Alexis from Nicollette Sheridan.  Is this going to be a doppelgänger story, or not? Time will tell.

CW’s Dynasty is a modernized reboot of the 1980s primetime soap of the same name, the series follows two of America’s wealthiest families, the Carringtons and the Colbys, as they feud for control over their fortune and their children.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talker A Go: Set For Launch 2020

CBS Television Distribution is getting more into the daytime talk show arena, with their first series of that kind in quite some time, after confirming that Drew Barrymore will indeed have a daytime talk show that now will premiere in the fall of 2020.

The new syndicated talk show has already had CBS Television Stations signing on as the first station group around the country to carry the show. New York and Los Angeles are on-board as two key heavyweight markets.

According to Deadline: the pickup for Barrymore’s talker came rather quickly just two months after she shot the pilot for it in the Big Apple.

The decision to move forward with Drew’s new show comes on the heels of a strong showing by NBC Universal’s new daytime talker, The Kelly Clarkson Show and the good start for Disney’s Tamron Hall Show.

As to where in the day-part the syndicated series hosted by Barrymore might fall in your daily viewing schedule is yet to be determined.

With solid ratings for Kelly Clarkson, Tamron Hall, and a new Barrymore talk series on the way; do you think it signifies more trouble ahead for your daytime soap operas in the long-run, or will everyone be able to have their slots and retain their audience and co-exist happily ever-after? Share your theories via the comment section below.
