The Bold and the Beautiful

Karla Mosley’s (Maya) daughter had an accident but she’s doing okay. Get the details, as well as the lowdown on what happened when production was interrupted after a Bell-Phillip Television staffer had a positive test. Then go behind-the-scenes with Denise Richards (Shauna) as she tries to balance keeping cool and looking glamorous. Her character is going to have a hard time keeping it together now that her wedding to Ridge has been revealed as a sham. We weigh in on who he should choose and the choice he’s likely to make. Either way, it looks obvious that Shauna is in a losing situation. Get nostalgic as we look back at a scene-stealer from the past on the anniversary of her death and learn what Courtney Hope revealed her character Sally was doing when Wyatt wasn’t looking. Plus, get our bet on who Wyatt will be paired with next. Read all about it in the Bold and the Beautiful news room. And Candace thinks that plots are moving at a snail’s pace, finds Dr. Finnegan a bit dry, but was relieved to have a break from Wyatt and Flo in the Bold and the Beautiful column.

Days of our Lives

Relive the romance that was John and Marlena’s first wedding before hearing how Deidre Hall (Marlena) and the cast are preparing to head back to the set for September. Some big moments are already being promised, and we look back at a few of the pivotal scenes Sami (Alison Sweeney) has had in her history in Salem. Could Rafe figure in her future? It looks like Galen Gering won’t be leaving the role behind after all. Find out what details from his character’s past may impact on his future and what happens after he rescues Hope. Ken Corday came out to admit that he was ‘dismayed’ by Kristian Alfonso’s (Hope) choice to quit. Meanwhile, Camila Banus (Gabi) will also be back on the canvas soon, in spite of her character’s rumored exit. Sonny received an offer that could spell the exit of his character and another killer twist in Ben’s life could seriously influence his future. While it looks like John Black could be heading for death yet again, Philip Kiriakis has returned to town. We look at some of the craziest things that have happened to him in a life that’s been anything but normal and also weigh in on why he needs to be paired with Chloe again. Of course, it doesn’t look like any of this bodes well for Xander. Find out why in our Days of our Lives news room where we also have the latest fan fiction featuring Harold and Henderson. Finally, Chrissi looks at the conflicts over Allie’s baby, isn’t enjoying Lani’s whining, thinks Sonny is being dense, and was thrilled by Philip’s return in her Days of our Lives column.

General Hospital

The actress has assured viewers that there is plenty of exciting material ahead. This might include Sam and Jason’s relationship being blown up.

In the latest action in Port Charles, Marcus is back from the dead, but this could prove be the death knell for Jordan. Réal Andrews revealed who brought him back and who may also be on the way. Risa Dorken has returned with a new look as Nurse Amy. She came back in time for the Nurses Ball, which has proven to be more unpredictable than it’s been in years.

Melissa Ordway (Abby) is about to get a lot busier as she moves to Nashville. Could this change anything for her staying on Young and Restless?
