The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences has already announced many of the actors who are slated to present at the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, and now they've revealed some more surprises!
Look for Eileen Davidson (Ashley, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS; Kristen, DAYS OF OUR LIVES) and Mario Lopez (ex-Christian, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) will be joining the ranks of presenters, as will the cast of the new reality series QUEENS OF DRAMA (which premiers directly following the ceremony), Donna Mills (ex-Madeline, GENERAL HOSPITAL), Lindsay Hartley (Cara, ALL MY CHILDREN), Crystal Hunt (Lizzie, GUIDING LIGHT; Stacy, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) and Chrystee Pharris (Simone, PASSIONS).
As a special tribute to the fans of daytime drama, the ceremony will also feature some special fan awards, including Favorite Daytime Hottie, Most Romantic Duo and Favorite OMG! Moment. You can vote on those by clicking here.
Producers are also promising many surprises and star appearances, including teasing that the evening will reunite two soap star legends! So be sure not to miss this year's Daytime Emmy Awards ceremony live on Sunday, April 26, at 8:00 p.m. ET on Pop!
Move over, housewives, there are some new ladies on the block... and they are here to show you how to bring the drama! In one of the smartest programming moves we've seen in ages, Pop (formerly the TV Guide Network) will air the pilot of their sudsy new reality show, QUEENS OF DRAMA, at 10 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 26th, directly after this year's live telecast of the Daytime Emmy Awards.
So is QUEENS worth sticking around for? Only if you want to see some of your favorite former daytimers butting heads as they attempt to create a whole new soap. Do parts feel wildly scripted? Without doubt. But where else are you going to see Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda, GENERAL HOSPITAL) give an epic eyeroll to Donna Mills (ex-Madeline, GH; Abby, KNOTS LANDING) before declaring she feels "completely insulted" and walking out of a meeting?
And that's before DYNASTY's Joan Collins (Alexis) has even made her first appearance.
In short, this is the reality show soap fans have been waiting for. Following Sunday's premiere, QUEENS which also stars Crystal Hunt (Stacy, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Lizzie, GUIDING LIGHT), Lindsay Hartley (Cara, ALL MY CHILDREN), Hunter Tylo (ex-Taylor, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) and Chrystee Pharris (Simone, PASSIONS will air Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET beginning on April 29th.
Look for Ashley Jones (ex-Bridget, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) guest-starring in tonight's episode of CSI: CYBER. In the episode titled "URL, Interrupted," The Cyber team investigates when a high school victim of cyberbulling pledges to retaliate against her tormentors. It airs at 10:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
More than 300 actors entered the DAYS OF OUR LIVES "Search For A Star" Australian talent hunt, held in conjunction with Arena, the network that airs the soap Down Under. Last week, the three finalists -- Tom Dalzell, Andrew Steel and Alexander Bruszt -- did a screen test at the soap's Los Angeles studio for the role of Fynn, a rugged doctor who arrives in Salem to do his residency under Dr. Daniel Jonas.
The winner is expected to be announced this week, and the lucky gent will be awarded a 13-week contract with the soap. He'll make his Salem debut in late October, coinciding with DAYS' 50th Anniversary.
Mishael Morgan (Hilary) tells Soaps In Depth exclusively that she and her husband are expecting their first child in August! "We were actually thinking about planning a family this year... and it happened a little earlier than we anticipated," she smiles. "But I'm the kind of person who wants things to happen when they're supposed to happen, and am open to it. So it was a happy blessing!"
At the moment, the actress doesn't know the sex of the baby. However, that will change in May when she flies home to Toronto for her baby shower, which she has combined with a baby reveal ceremony. "The only person that knows right now is my baker, who is baking me a cake," she shares with a laugh. "Inside it's going to tell me whether it's a girl or a boy, so when we cut the cake at the baby shower, we'll all find out together! I thought it would be a nice way to celebrate that moment when we are all together, because not everybody is going to be there when the baby is going to be born."
Morgan confesses that she and her husband would be thrilled if the inside of the cake turned out to be pink! "I do have a preference because I want my girl to be older than my son so for that to happen, it has to be a girl!" she laughs. "When I was growing up, all the boys that I liked and was attracted to and who always treated women amazingly were the ones who had older sisters! So I wish my girl would be first, but it doesn't really matter. If I have a boy and he becomes an older brother to protect her, that's good, too! I'm just very excited!"
The actress' pregnancy will not be written into her storyline on Y&R, so look for Hilary's collection of oversized purses to expand in the near future!
It takes empathy and understanding to get to the heart of Maya's transgender journey on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, and if anyone possesses those qualities, it's her portrayer, Karla Mosley! The actress recently chatted with Soaps In Depth about the whirlwind she's experienced since embarking on the story that sent shockwaves through the daytime sphere and beyond. Find out how Mosley prepared to tackle such sensitive material and why she's proud to be part of such a groundbreaking storyline. It's all in the latest issue, on sale now!
