The Bold and the Beautiful:
Double threat! A current actor adds “B&B” writer to his resume as the soap nears a broadcasting milestone. A past star from the show has added yet another film to his credits, this one involving a cooking detective, while an actress who once played a Forrester intern took home a Golden Globe for her new role. And go back to 1991 when Blake Hayes teamed up with Margo MacClaine in order to get his ex Taylor back. After he got Taylor back, Margo still pretended they were having an affair. Do you remember why? Vote in our Throwback Thursday poll. And do you think Ridge and Caroline are as amazing together as Candace does in her weekly blog "B&B" Breakdown? Find it all in Soaps.com's The Bold and the Beautiful News Room.

Days of our Lives:
A former "Days" executive producer sadly passed away and a few actors shared some memories of his time with the show. The original Eve has a new role on the CW while a longtime actor sold his LA home with a rock star past for more than a million. And go back to 1983 in Salem when Bo Brady and Hope Williams shared their first kiss. Do you remember where it happened? Vote now in our Throwback Thursday poll. And do you agree with Christine that the show needs to stop taping six months in advance so they can follow viewer response more quickly in her blog Deconstructing "DOOL?" Read it all in Soaps.com’s Days of our Lives News Room.

General Hospital:
An iconic "GH" actress has shed a few pounds and is the new spokesperson for a popular diet brand. An actor who once spent time in Port Charles is in a new online Civil War-era pilot. One of the show's stars is set to appear on the CW. Bottoms up! A musical alum was back in court over an incident involving his rear end. An actress explains her decision to leave the show on YouTube, and also online is a new web series from one of the show regulars. Vote about the most significant event from the Election Day episode in Port Charles, then vote in the Throwback Thursday Poll about the time in 1980 when Luke and Laura were on the run from hit man Hutch, sent by mobster Frank Smith. Do you know who else was at odds with Smith at the time? And is Helena’s conditioning of Jake getting a bit confusing to you like it is for blogger Dustin in his weekly "GH" Rundown? Read about it all in the General Hospital News Room.

The Young and the Restless:
Go back to the mid-1970s when the Foster family all banded together in Genoa City when their patriarch left them on their own. William Foster Jr. hated that he shared his father’s name and began to go by the moniker Snapper. Do you remember why? Vote about it in our Throwback Thursday poll, then vote about what you think Paul should do about Nikki’s drinking. And do you think Kelly and Phyllis going crazy for Jack’s love is actually delivering in the entertainment department like Candace did in her weekly blog, Restless Rant? Find it all in The Young and the Restless News Room.
