Is this the end of Bill & Katie? Or just the end of Katie? On the August 1 episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, heroine Katie Spencer — played by three-time Emmy winner Heather Tom — will go into cardiac arrest when her hubby Bill (Don Diamont) says he wants to end their marriage to be with the young ...
At this point it's safe to say that James Franco really does love General Hospital! A rep for the ABC soap tells TV Guide Magazine that the Oscar-nominated actor and ...
The irrepressible, irreplaceable Kim Zimmer hits the market August 2 with her autobiography I'm Just Sayin'!: Three Deaths, Seven Husbands and a Clone! My Life as a Daytime Diva (New American Library). It's a startling, provocative and wildly entertaining read, though who'd expect anything less from the gal who won four Emmys playing Reva "The Slut of Springfield" Shayne on Guiding Light? Zimmer, currently back on One Life to Live as the demonic Echo DiSavoy, cut loose with TV Guide Magazine on a variety of topics — from Lucci and Oprah and Alcoholics Anonymous to the precarious state of soaps!
The stars of daytime's No. 2 soap are about to get a big dose of reality: On September 7, CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful will start broadcasting in high definition, a development "that will take our show to a whole new look and level," exec producer Brad Bell tells TV Guide Magazine. "We knew back when we did all that CGI work on the Brookeberries story that it would have been so much better in high-def. Now we've got what we need to really move the show forward. And it's about time because, globally, you need to be high-def. It's now expected that you deliver your product that way." (B&B is the most widely seen daily drama in the world.)
Bam! Pow! Carolyn Hinsey's new take-no-prisoners suds tome Afternoon Delight: Why Soaps Still Matter (available at thesoapbook.com and amazon.com) is already a hit, having commanded the No. 1 spot on Amazon Kindle's pop culture list for the last two weeks. And the hardcover edition is just shipping this week. If you've ever been addicted to a soap opera, you'll want to grab this terrific mix of historical perspective, sage advice, lip-smacking gossip, biting criticism (Ellen Wheeler, duck for cover!) and — most important — some real hope and faith in the long-term future of daytime drama. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Hinsey, who is best known for her outrageously snarky "It's Only My Opinion" column in Soap Opera Digest. We could talk to this broad all day...
Walt Willey and Susan Lucci
Can Prospect Park, the company taking ABC's All My Children and One Life to Live to the internet, possibly be ready to make the move with AMC as soon as September? Hard to believe, but that's what TV Guide Magazine is hearing.
Word is, the production company intends to waste no time — or lose any momentum — and will launch the reimagined AMC on...
Syfy's Warehouse 13 returned for its third season last night with the proverbial bang, plus a seismic shock or two. The good news: Leading lady Joanne Kelly is still with us as Myka Bering, even though the tough, vulnerable, funny and deliciously dishy superagent quit her job in the Season 2 finale after her trust in H.G. Wells (Jaime Murray) almost led the end of the world. Now for the bad news (though it's actually good news!): The evil H.G. is already back — albeit in holographic form — cryptically claiming she's being held captive somewhere and urging Myka to return to her job at the Warehouse. TV Guide Magazine had an exclusive chat with Kelly to get the lowdown on Myka's return, her future with H.G. and her crazy-good chemistry with this hot new Steve guy.
There's not a more popular — or badder — badass in soaps than The Young and the Restless' Victor Newman. But even he's pushing it with the fans. The megalomaniacal patriarch — played by Emmy winner Eric Braeden — earned considerable viewer backlash last month when he threw his ex-wife, Diane (Maura West), from the back of an ambulance and left her bruised and bloodied on the road. (Sure, Di's a lying, conniving skank who was trying to destroy Victor's life, but still!) This week, Victor pays a ...
Patrick Muldoon and Christie Clark
Days of Our Lives chief Ken Corday promised he'd be bringing romance back to the NBC soap — and he's bringing sexy back, too! An NBC rep tells TV Guide Magazine that Patrick Muldoon (the original Austin Reed) and Christie Clark (Carrie Brady) will return to the show in late September. They start shooting next week...
