Guest roles, great achievements, and grotesque storylines.

Stay on top of all of the latest news about “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “Days of our Lives,” “General Hospital,” and “The Young and the Restless.”

The Bold and the Beautiful:
In The Bold and the Beautiful news room, Heather Tom (Katie) returned to hosting duties on “The Talk” to chat with her former co-star Mario Lopez (Christian). Though Katie has been fighting with her sister lately, that is nothing compared to Brooke’s legendary battles with Taylor. This week we revisited the fight that led to Brooke going on a rampage. And Candace contemplates why it’s so easy to accept the Ridge, Caroline and Thomas story turning on a dime in the latest “B&B” blog.

Days of our Lives:
“Days” celebrated a big milestone this week. They aired their 13,000 episode! Executive Producer Ken Corday offered a peek at what’s ahead for the soap and we took a step back into the past to revisit the many kidnappings of Salem history. Check it out it in Soaps.com’s Days of our Lives news room along with news of Peter Reckell (Bo) returning to the cast of “The Fantasticks” after 35 years away. Plus, Christine comments on the epic negativity of Rafe’s standalone episode in last week’s “Days” blog.

Then take a look at Michael Graziadei’s (Daniel) return before finding out when Kelly Sullivan’s (Sage) “Too Close to Home” will air. Meanwhile, former familiar face from Genoa City Victoria Rowell (Drucilla) tweeted photos of her and the cast of her new comedy “Mann & Wife.” You can find all of that and more in Soaps.com’s The Young and the Restless news room.
