Is Greens the killer? The murder of David Hayward on ABC's All My Children takes a trippy turn next week when his wife Greenlee — played by Rebecca Budig — admits she forged several letters to make it appear that the evil doc committed suicide. But is the guy really dead? A rep for Vincent Irizarry, who played David, recently posted a statement on the actor's official Facebook page saying Irizarry was "still in negotiations" with the show — suggesting this might be yet another phony "death" in Pine Valley. Irizarry then issued a follow-up statement claiming this announcement was "unauthorized and premature" but never said it was untrue. What ev. TV Guide Magazine spoke to Budig in the midst of the Irizarry hoo-hah and got her take on the whodunit. Guess which soap she hopes to land on if Greens gets the electric chair!
CBS's As the World Turns will end its landmark run on Friday. What better way to say goodbye than to let the fearless, unsinkable Eileen Fulton — now in her 50th year playing Lisa — cut loose one last time!
Michael Cristofer, Rubicon
There are renaissance men in this world, and then there's Michael Cristofer.
He's currently kicking keister on Rubicon as eccentric intelligence czar Truxton Spangler — a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside a trench coat — but acting hasn't always been his thing. In fact, Cristofer is way better known as a playwright (he won the Pulitzer Prize and a Tony for "The Shadow Box") and film scribe (The Witches of Eastwick), and he's also an acclaimed director (his HBO movie Gia made Angelina Jolie world famous). Now he's penning his first opera...
There's no business like shoe business. Since the demise of her soap Guiding Light, fan fave Tina Sloan (Lillian) has been playing to sell-out crowds with her inspiring one-woman stage show Changing Shoes. It's all about her struggle to stay vital and relevant in a world that prizes beauty and youth. The book version, Changing Shoes: Getting Older — Not Old — With Style, Humor, and Grace (Gotham Books), will hit stores September 16. (Go to ChangingShoes.com for her performance schedule and pre-order info on the book.) TV Guide Magazine spoke with the 67-year-old Sloan about her adventure into self-awareness, which took her from the heights of Mount Kilimanjaro to the depths of depression...
Don't assume that Daytime Emmy on your mantle means job security! Drew Tyler Bell won the Outstanding Younger Actor trophy just this past June for his role as Thomas Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful but he's now been replaced on the CBS soap by former...
It's bad enough we have to say goodbye to As the World Turns next month, but the thought of not having Elizabeth Hubbard on TV is just too much to bear! A member of daytime royalty and a two-time Emmy winner, Hubbard plays Oakdale megamogul Lucinda Walsh with a fresh, freewheeling inventiveness that always makes her scenes unpredictable and a little bit dangerous. Hubbard demands that we watch her every move with rapt attention — even after 26 years in the part — and that means she doesn't always obey the producers and stick to the script. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the ballsy, irrepressible Hubbard about all things ATWT — the cancellation, her upcoming reunion with Larry Bryggman (Dr. John Dixon) and what it's like to drive her bosses batty...

Yo, Adrienne! She's famous for playing kickass broads — from Broadway's original Rizzo in Grease to divorcee Carol Traynor in the landmark sitcom Maude to the snake charmer Ruthie in HBO's Carnivale — and now Adrienne Barbeau is doing it again on General Hospital. She joins the ABC soap August 12 as Suzanne Stanwyck, a Christiane Amanpour-type foreign correspondent who runs an organization that helps exploited children. And she doesn't need Angelina Jolie. Suzanne's goodwill ambassador is international mega-model Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo)! Barbeau is a pro at conquering new genres and winning new fan bases. After Maude, she turned horror-flick scream queen (The Fog, Creepshow, Swamp Thing). Later, she became ...
