Meet the Big Brother 13 Houseguests

Big Brother 13

Allison Grodner is one tough interview. The big cheese at CBS's Big Brother franchise is maddeningly fond of peppering her answers with evasive wisecracks and un-informational silences, along with the occasional, oh-so-expected catchphrase "Expect the unexpected." But as Thursday's premiere of Big Brother 13 approaches, there's no hiding the exec producer's enthusiasm for this year's houseguests.

"I think this is our most interesting and diverse mix of people yet. We have some very big ...

The Bold and the Beautiful Gets a Fashion Makeover

Hunter Tylo, Colleen Bell and Ronn Moss

The Bold and the Beautiful has finally been forced to call in the police — the fashion police! The 24-year-old CBS sudser, set against the world of haute couture, just won its third best soap Emmy in a row but, let's face it, the show has never been a mover and shaker when it comes to style. In fact, it's always seemed a bit behind the times. That's all changing thanks to Colleen Bell. The L.A. style maven and philanthropist — wed to B&B exec producer Brad Bell — holds the title of Director of Special Projects and is now in charge of giving the soap a major makeover.

Exclusive: Joanna Johnson Returns to The Bold and the Beautiful

Don Diamont, Joanna Johnson, Ronn Moss

She's back on The Bold and the Beautiful and not because she needs a paycheck! Longtime fan fave Joanna Johnson — now a writer and co-executive producer of ABC Family's Make It or Break It — returns to the CBS soap July 22 for a four-episode stint as Karen Spencer. The plot finds Katie (Heather Tom) renewing her vows with Karen's brother Bill (Don Diamont) — a seemingly happy but complicated situation considering Bill's wandering eye. TV Guide Magazine had a chat with Johnson, who was also the creator and exec producer of the Kelly Ripa-Faith Ford sitcom Hope & Faith. Does she miss acting? Ha! Don't bet on it.

Days of Our Lives Goes to the Movies for July 4

Days of Our Lives

The Independence Day connection isn't quite clear here but, heck, so what? This sounds like a hoot! Bad rain will hit Salem on the July 4 episode of NBC's Days of Our Lives, forcing the young ones — Gabi, Chad, Abigail, Kinsey and Melanie — to stay indoors and watch this year's Oscar DVDs at the Brady Pub. While trying to decide which flicks to choose, Melanie imagines herself and Bo in True Grit, while Chad fantasizes himself in The Social Network and Gabi goes for The King's Speech. Kinsey votes for The Fighter with Brady as Mark Wahlberg's character and the gals — from Nicole and Melanie to sassy Nurse Maxine — as the mouthy, trashtastic Eklund sisters. And look for Emmy winner Judi Evans (Adrienne) in the badass mom role that won an Oscar for Melissa Leo. The Days take-off we most can't wait to see? That'd be Black Swan, with the great Kristian Alfonso (Hope) in all her psychotic Natalie Portman glory.

Daytime Emmy Awards: Michael Logan's Fearless Predictions

Susan Flannery

It's time for that annual exercise in hopelessness, pointlessness and foolishness — predicting the Daytime Emmys! I mean, seriously, why do we bother? You can think you have good taste and know award-worthy talent when you see it. You can spend hours upon hours reviewing the reels that each of the nominees has submitted to the judges. And then it can all blow up in your face with three little words: Drew Tyler Bell. Yes, my little soap peeps, anyone can win at the Daytime Emmys (which air Sunday at 8/7c, on CBS). Anyone. So, with that in mind, here we go...

All My Children's Debbi Morgan Talks Emmys, Cancellation and That Sony Rumor

Debbi Morgan

These are bittersweet times for Debbi Morgan. The groundbreaking actress — daytime's first black female superstar — is once again riding high on All My Children in the sudsiest of plots. Her character, Angie Hubbard, stopped taking crucial medication and allowed herself to go blind when she discovered she was pregnant, only to deliver a stillborn baby. Angie has no idea her child died because her hubby, Jesse (Darnell Williams), pulled a switch and gave her an abandoned newborn. Meanwhile, the baby's real mother has been working as a housemaid in Pine Valley. This emotional time bomb has helped make Morgan a front runner in the best actress race for Sunday's Daytime Emmys. Fabulous, right? But then there's that damn cancellation. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the divinely dimpled diva about her shot at a second Emmy, the end of AMC and that report that said she's moving to a Sony soap!
