The Bold and the Beautiful:
Do you ever ask yourself who Brooke really belongs with? We visit that burning question in Soaps.com’s The Bold and the Beautiful news room. When you’re there, you should also check out the scintillating Daytime Emmy reels from Pierson Fode (Thomas), Anthony Turpel (RJ) and Anna Maria Horsford (Vivienne). Meanwhile, this week’s video highlights have Bill snarling, Saul squaring off, Shirley being nonchalant, and Coco using her brain. Plus, Candace weighs in on Sally and Thomas’ breakup, Bill giving Jarrett his marching orders, and RJ acting like a 50-year-old in her “B&B” blog.

Days of our Lives:
We carefully weigh the cases and offer our verdict on whether Chad is better with Abby or Gabi in our Days of our Lives news room. While you’re passing judgment, you might also want to give the Daytime Emmy reels a gander. James Reynolds (Abe), John Aniston (Victor), Kate Mansi (Abby) and James Lastovic (Joey) are all in the running. Take a look at the stunning scenes they submitted and figure out who you would vote for. And don’t miss Christine on Scooter being creepy, Kate being pushy, and Wyatt being too good to be true in the newest “Days” blog.

General Hospital:
Jonathan Jackson (Lucky) fans can breathe a sigh of relief now that CMT has renewed “Nashville” for a sixth season. In sad news, GH alum Peter Hanson (Lee) has died.

Watch them and let us know who you think will take home a trophy.

The Young and the Restless:
Justin Hartley (Adam) revealed who he will be playing in “Bad Moms Christmas.” Meanwhile, Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) and Jason Thompson (Billy) let out a few teasers about what’s coming up for their characters when they were being interviewed recently. Watch the video in our The Young and the Restless news room where you can also see Victor accusing Nick of hating his guts, Phyllis catching Jack with Gloria, and Faith finding out that her dad clobbered Victor. And if one week’s highlights were not enough, you can get a bunch from the last season with the Daytime Emmy reels featuring performances by Steve Burton (Dylan), Kelly Sullivan (Sage), Stacy Haiduk (Patty), Hunter King (Summer), and Alyvia Alyn Lind (Faith). Plus, if you want to see Eric Braeden (Victor) in person, he’ll be at the 2017 Parade of Champion. Finally, Candace considers the romantic bust-ups at GC Buzz, hotness and hilarity with Phyllis and Scott, and Nikki’s unworkable plans in her latest blog.
