The Young and the Restless, Michelle Stafford hosted a private get-together Thursday evening attended by some of the biggest names in daytime including: Days of our Lives, James Scott, Sarah Brown, Peter Reckell, Arianne Zuker, and Patrick Muldoon, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn, The Young and the Restless, Christian LeBlanc, Jessica Collins, Stacy Haiduk, Kate Linder.

The event was to introduce the soap community to the efforts of The Earth Organization which is independent, grass roots, international non-profit, conservation and environment organization, with new solutions, committed to the creative, responsible rehabilitation of Planet Earth and the plant and animal kingdoms.

Special guest of the evening, Barbara Wiseman from The Earth Organization, informed those in attendance of the damage that is happening in the Gulf of Mexico from the Gulf Oil disaster and how it is not cleaned up.  And because of that, the Gulf is still in extremely bad shape, due to toxic chemicals that are still being sprayed, which are severely affecting the marine life, wildlife, and people living in the Gulf. However, Wiseman says that the organization has identified a solution to rectify the damages.

Michelle Stafford spoke to On-Air On-Soaps on why it was important for her to bring awareness of the organization to the soap community: “What people need to know is what is really happening in the Gulf.  It has been swept under the rug.  People have forgotten everyone in the Gulf.  There are people still dealing with this now, just like they did after Katrina.  We can’t keep on forgetting about people. It’s about us as a group and this country. We need to do something about this.  I am so moved about this cause, because people don’t know, and should know, that there is this toxic substance that in the water, and that oil is still in the water. Our marine life is dying and people have gotten sick. Everything is going to be found out. We will do something, but it has to happen with a group.  So by having this get-together tonight, I wanted to start something.  I brought soap actors with big twitter accounts! (Laughs).  But really, I invited those from daytime who are very environmentally and socially conscious.

You will be hearing more from those in attendance and some of your favorite daytime stars in the coming days on how you can become involved and help The Earth Organization and learn more.  For now you can visit www.theearthorganization.org for more information.

REPORT: CBS to Exercise Option to Renew The Bold and the Beautiful Through 2024-2025 Season

Hot on the heels of today’s announcement of The Young and the Restless being picked-up for four more season, many have wondered what this means for its sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful.

According to a report by TV Line, during B&B’s last renewal pick-up for two years, CBS included an option for an additional year. So, when B&B’s current renewal expires this May, (just like Y&R’s was set to do) it included an additional option year.

A CBS source told the outlet, that the option will be exercised, extending B&B through the 2024-25 TV season. There most likely would be no official announcement for B&B continuing on for another year, since its not part of a newly-negotiated extension.

The Bold and the Beautiful was co-created by William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell and premiered on CBS back on March 23, 1987. The series will be celebrating its 37th anniversary next month.

Currently, viewers were in for a shock when this week, it appears that the powers-that-be ended the reign of terror of supervillain Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) or did they?

With Y&R renewed for four years, B&B expected for another under its current contract with CBS, Days of our Lives renewed through its 60th season and General Hospital continuing on, it looks like there is no need to worry at present time that the four remaining soap operas are going anywhere.

So, glad to know B&B will have CBS pick-up their option for at least another year? Comment below.
