Peter Bergman (Jack) who received wonderful news this past Wednesday that he was nominated this year for a Daytime Emmy nomination, along with his cast mate, Doug Davidson (Paul) in the Outstanding Lead Actor category, took time out to speak with On-Air On-Soaps about getting the recognition from his peers, but also talked about the glaring omission that has fans and soap pundits stunned… that Stacy Haiduk (Patty/Emily) did not pick up a Supporting Actress nomination, when many had predicted her to be one of the front runners.

Bergman said,  “I am sad that Stacy Haiduk did not receive a nomination.  She was the glue to this whole thing.  It’s worth saying that Doug Davidson’s performance on his tape is with him and Stacy, and it was enough to get him a nod. That is a great compliment to Stacy.  The way mine was a compliment to Sharon Case (Sharon) and Billy Miller (Billy), who were on my submission tape.  I have not made a secret of the fact that double identity is not my favorite storyline vehicles.  It has only worked on our show because Stacy Haiduk is so brilliant at it. I watched Tuesday’s air show, and the last scene we see of Patty, she is in a straight jacket.  They cut to her, and she is twelve years old, and it’s chilling.  She is now finally OK.  Patty is in safe place with her brother, and it contrasted so starkly to everything that actresses does.  And I said, “There she goes again…Stacy Haiduk!”

I’m so glad that Peter Bergman spoke out about Stacy Haiduk. I agree 100% that she deserved a nomination mote than any actress for her Patty/Emily role on Y&R. She has been amazing. She must be very disappointed after working so hard. I don’t understand these award shows at all. Hopefully, she will get one next year. Also, I don’t get Regis Philbin hosting the Emmys. Isn’t he getting a little long in the tooth? That award show is going backwards. Where are the young smart stars? The producers could do better. If Regis is going to sing and with… Read more »

I’m very glad that Peter spoke up in the Stacy issue – what a wonderful and talented actress! Sheer talent pulled of this triple role (Mary Jane, Patty and Emily) and in return Stacy has been snubbed and treated quite badly as well. CBS, you should be ashamed. The Emmy snub is explainable – she is TOO good and those sad decision-makers must feel like big fish in a little pond. Aren’t you proud of yourselves!! I’m disgusted.

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.
