Good news for Greg and its good he is staying on Y&R. We already lost Harding, we cannot afford to lose Fish to!

So glad to see this handsome and talented man have an opportunity outside of Genoa City. Rikaart has weathered all the silliness thrown at him and Kevin through the years, and evenin the midst of such, proves watchable and interesting. The Kevin and Mariah scenes are among my favorites on Y&R. A couple made for adventure, humor, and passion!

Dude…..He’s been Front Line since the day he first appeared on The Y&R Canvas. Keep him busy with a few time off days on Y/R…..so that he doesn’t burn out This double duty will only help the viewer ship for the other show. Major Crimes looks like a great show from the commercials…I’ve not taken the time to get into the series…just saw a little of maybe three shows before Kevin Bacons’ Wife left the show. I love television (would love too be an actor on Y&R) and enjoy being entertained by good acting. Major Crimes has that talent…..but…..Mr. Greg… Read more »

It looks like a very good fitting role for him and multi-episode.
Nice to see CBS is letting the soap cast do other projects on other networks.

I think he will do a great job on Major Crimes. Brandon Barash is
already on and doing a fabulous job. They need to make him a cop
on Y&R.

Greg is an awesome actor. Love him on Y&R. He can be serious or comical. I could watch him all day. When he was hiding from Terrible Tom in the closet, his acting was at its best. I totally cried for him. He is just one super guy and one super actor. I adore him and will be watching Major Crimes.

I live in France and I do not know if I could ever see this series but although it is I’m happy for Greg Rickart which is a great actor. I love the character of Kevin, although at this moment in our french episodes I find it silly with Chloe. I do not like this couple. I loved the couple and if Kevinlena Diana Degarmo could one day return to Y & R would be great to rebuild their relationship, this time with a real shared romance.

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

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.
