It's been 16 years since Michelle Stafford hit The Young and the Restless as scheming rock groupie Phyllis Summers — and two Emmys and eight nominations later she's still playing it bad to the bone. These days Phyllis is a hotshot magazine editor with a poisonous blog that's pissing off half of Genoa City. And she's always on the lookout for smarm! On November 29, the flame-haired nutjob will head to New Orleans to get the scoop on Adam Newman (Michael Muhney) after the mysterious disappearance of his wife, Skye (Laura Stone). While there, Phyllis also finds her ex-husband Nick (Joshua Morrow) and archenemy Sharon (Sharon Case). Y&R shot four episodes in the Big Easy (they begin airing November 24) with locations ranging from the French Quarter to the allegedly haunted Lafayette Cemetery. ...
When actor-producer Corbin Bernsen goes to work at his Los Angeles office, he's surrounded by flakes. And he's on the lookout for more! The Psych star is a rabid collector of snow globes — he guestimates he has more than 7,500 — and has been hunting them since his days on L.A. Law in the '80s. "At the height of the show's popularity, I'd take out ...
Some things never change. And yahoo for that! Suds icon Andrea Evans is heading back to The Bold and the Beautiful after a 10-year absence to play Tawny, the trailer-trash gold-digger who spawned that royal pain Amber Moore (Adrienne Frantz). As usual, Tawny will be looking for a hand-out and intends to hit up her kid, whom she thinks is doing well in the L.A. fashion biz. She has no idea Amber recently got canned.
Lindsay Hartley was dumped by Days of Our Lives and her character, ex-undercover agent Arianna Hernandez, died last week from a hit and run. But shed no tears for this gal! She's moving from Salem to Pine Valley — with a stop along the way to battle Clark Kent. Starting December 8, Hartley will be seen on All My Children as ...
He used to be so good at this spy thing. Timothy Dalton spoofs his past as 007 when he joins Chuck (Monday, 8/7c, NBC) as Gregory Tuttle, a handler of secret agents at MI-6 who holds vital intel on the long-missing Mom Bartowski (Linda Hamilton). The sad truth: Tuttle himself is ...
C'mon, you've all been thinking the same thing. How the hell does she go to the bathroom? Days of Our Lives' Vivian Alamain — played to madcap brilliance by Louise Sorel — is finally rescued from that sarcophagus this Friday (November 5) where she's been trapped for weeks without food, water or a loo. (You can play, too! Check out the Vivian's Escape game at nbc.com.) But get this: Before Vivian makes a break for it, she puts her arch-rival Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) in the sarcophagus instead! TV Guide Magazine fired some burning questions at Sorel, who seems just as mystified about this kooky plot as we are! ...
You can't stop the Bells! Actress-writer-director Lauralee Bell — aka Cricket on The Young and the Restless — launches the fifth installment of her wackadoo web series Family Dinner November 15 (funnyordie.com and familydinneronline.com). Previous episodes wowed us with guest stints by Phyllis Diller and Cloris Leachman. This time, Bell goes nuts with a massive cast including American Idol champ Jordin Sparks, suds-rock icon Rick Springfield, drummer Chad Smith of The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Oscar winner Shirley Jones. The last will play a musical therapist named Dr. Jones who comes to dinner intent on healing the screwed-up O'Connell clan, led by Bell's Oprah-obsessed matriarch.
In these days of crippling budget cuts, it's pretty damn remarkable that The Bold and the Beautiful went down to L.A.'s Skid Row and hired some 25 real-life homeless people to tell their life stories on camera. The sequences, airing October 28-29, are part of a plot that has Beverly Hills matron Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery) battling stage 4 lung cancer and using what time she has left to help those who have nothing. The soap's exec producer-head writer Brad Bell, who has hired an additional 30 homeless to appear as extras, swears he won't be dropping this storyline anytime soon. In fact, it'll be an integral part of the show's holiday season. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the B&B boss man about his groundbreaking plot and where it goes from here. ...
It's always hot news when Tristan Rogers returns to daytime TV. One of the soap world's all-time greats — thanks to his many rowdy years as Robert Scorpio on General Hospital — Rogers will soon show up on The Young and the Restless. A show rep tells TV Guide Magazine he'll play "a mysterious and charming stranger named Colin who comes to Genoa City with a dark secret and a threatening agenda." Rogers, whose role at this point is considered recurring, will start shooting...
