The Bold and the Beautiful

In some sad news, we remember former Broadway star and B&B guest star Carol Channing, who passed away last week at the age of 97. Meanwhile, Anna Maria Horsford (Vivienne) will be showing off her comedic skills when she appears on Tracy Morgan’s The Last O.G. Find out when the series has its second season premiere in Soaps.com’s The Bold and the Beautiful news room, where you can also catch all of the latest casting news for the soap. And Candace was once again impressed by Hope’s raw emotion, but thinks the adoption story is dumbed down, and Bill’s scenes with his son were adorable in the B&B blog.

Days of our Lives

We have the premiere date for Alison Sweeney’s (Sami) new Hallmark Movies & Mysteries series The Chronicle Mysteries in our Days of our Lives news room along with a video preview. While you’re there, you can also see the latest spoiler video, featuring Ted locking lips with Hope, and read all the latest rumors about what’s happening this winter in Salem. And Christine had to suspend her disbelief a lot last week as Eric attacked Xander, thinks Rex is an idiot, and rooted for a Chabby reunion in her Days blog.

General Hospital

We don’t see much of Brytni Sarpy (Valerie) and Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) around Port Charles, but you will have the chance to see the two actresses as two different characters when they appear in the Lifetime romantic thriller The Wrong Husband. Plus, you can soon see Carolyn Hennesy (Diane) guest starring on truTV’s Adam Ruins Everything. Learn more and check out the latest spoiler videos in our General Hospital news room. Then learn why Dustin thinks Ryan’s jumped the shark, wonders how deep things go at Dawn of Day, and is relieved that there is finally one non-depressing storyline in the new GH blog.

The Young and the Restless

We have the date for Hunter King’s return to Y&R as Summer. It was a big week for the show as it celebrated 30 years at the top of the ratings with a special party. Take a look at the photos and then get the lowdown from Eileen Davidson (Ashley) on why she left the soap. In other news, Tammin Sursok (Colleen) has given birth to her new baby and Jess Walton (Jill), Joshua Morrow (Nick) and Sharon Case (Sharon) dropped by CBS’ The Talk to discuss the show’s success and some current storylines. Catch a few highlights of last week’s action in Genoa City, featuring Cane punching Billy and Arturo popping the question to Abby in our The Young and the Restless news room. Finally, Candace suspects the women’s pact will soon fall apart, doesn’t know what Mia wants, and was highly entertained by the Cane and Victoria mess in her latest Y&R blog.
