Ashley Jones, John McCook

The impending loss of The Bold and the Beautiful's Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery), who will die of cancer early next month, is resulting in some mighty profound and surprisingly uplifting TV.

TV Guide Magazine spoke with McCook to get his take on this sad saga and found out he's amazingly happy about it! read more

General Hospital's Nancy Lee Grahn Lets it All Hang Out

Nancy Lee Grahn

Why is General Hospital's Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) suddenly looking so chestacular? Normally, we'd be interviewing a soap star about something important, like big career news or a startling plot twist. But sometimes you just gotta set up a chat because the subject in question is fantastically hilarious and shamelessly honest and because, well, out of nowhere she's sporting some amazingly major boobage! The suds blogosphere is abuzz about it! TV Guide Magazine spoke with the two-time Emmy winning Grahn about this out-of-nowhere development and so much more — from her arch foes (Bob Guza, Sarah Palin) to her phantom GH romance with Sean Blakemore (Shawn). And why is she Kelly Monaco's self-appointed Dance Mom at every taping of Dancing With the Stars?

On the Set: The Mentalist Goes Back in Time for the 100th Episode

Simon Baker

Think about it. We're now five seasons into The Mentalist and we still don't know all that much about Simon Baker's title character — the sad, tormented, ultra-private Patrick Jane.

And, if so, how did he ever get his act together to join the major crimes unit at the CBI? To celebrate the 100th episode of the CBS series, creator-exec producer Bruno Heller is flashing back — eight years to be exact — to cough up a few answers. Prepare for a... read more

Video Exclusive: Will and Sonny Finally Have Sex on Days of Our Lives

Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith

Get out your calendars. After months and months of frustrating delays, false starts and countless emotional pitfalls, Days of Our Lives' Will and Sonny will finally make love on the NBC soap's Nov. 14 episode. And — steam alert! — TV Guide Magazine has this exclusive video preview of what's sure to be a very talked-about scene (below).

"The Will and Sonny fans have waited a long time for this but the delay has been a good thing," says Freddie Smith, who plays Sonny. "It's allowed the audience to get to know our characters and to get to a place where they are really rooting for them to get together. I don't expect anyone will think the sex scene is controversial. Hopefully, we're past that. This isn't a story about two gay guys. It's about two human beings who truly love each other."

HBO's The Girl Explores Hitchcock's Inner Psycho

Sienna Miller

We always suspected he was a little off his rocker...but who knew he was this creepy and crazy? The late Alfred Hitchcock was the uncontested master of horror and suspense, a director so obsessed with murder and mayhem — much of it aimed at women — that one can't truly analyze his films without a Carl Jung handbook nearby. His greatest works, Rear Window, Vertigo and Psycho among them, still earn raves from critics more than half a century after they were made and his legacy as an artist remains sterling. But at what cost to the female stars who worked for him — the ones famously known as the "Hitchcock Blondes"?

Exclusive: The Bold and the Beautiful Chief Reveals Plans for Susan Flannery's Shocking Exit

Susan Flannery

We can't say she didn't warn us.
