One Life to Live's Bree Williamson (Jessica) is ready to walk the planks, having scored the role of Corie in a production of Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park, to run Aug. 23 through Sept. 23 at the John W. Engeman Theater in Northport, Long Island, TheaterMania reports.A few other soap-star sightings to keep an eye out for: Florencia Lozano (ex-Téa, OLTL) plays an affluent Manhattan mom in the CW's Gossip Girl (premiering Sept. 19).... Another Llanviewer, Trevor St. John, plays pop to Six Feet Under's Peter Krause in flashbacks in the pilot for ABC's Dirty Sexy Money (airing Sept. 26).... All My Children's Jeff Branson (Jonathan) makes a fleeting (yet hysterical) appearance in the indie film Delirious (now in theaters).
Wow. I'd think the cabler would be pretty stoked about all the drama it's getting out of its reality show Fashionista Diaries... except, um, the series doesn't even debut until tomorrow. What's the problem? The serial was supposed to be about six semi-glam assistants, some of whom worked at Jane magazine. The late Jane magazine. So now the pair who saw Jane fold will punch the clock at CosmoGIRL! instead. Does it make me old, male or both that I'm not at all sure I'll know the difference? Perhaps to further distract from the emergency recast (for those of you who will know the difference), Fashionista has announced that Bree Williamson — aka One Life to Live crackpot Tessica — will make a cameo in the Aug. 15 episode.
All of soapdom was buzzing on Wednesday when the Daytime Emmy nominations were announced. Here's how your sudsy faves reacted to all the big news....
First-time nominee Renee Goldsberry (Evangeline) had a mixed reaction to being One Life to Live's lone acting anointee. "It's bittersweet because I saw some great work on my show last year," the supporting-actress contender told TVGuide.com. "I don't want to single anybody out, but I can't help it: Bree [Williamson, Jess/Tess], I thought was absolutely wonderful, [as were] John-Paul [Lavoisier, Rex], Robin Strasser (Dorian)... I also thought that Tari [Signor, Margaret], who was [pre]nominated in [my] category, was really, really great. Michael Easton (John) should get a little shout-out as well, because you're only as good as your partner."
"It was shocking that I was even nominated," said
