Alison Sweeney, James Scott
Sami Brady is no fool. The Days of Our Lives supervixen (played by Alison Sweeney) knows that her man, EJ DiMera (James Scott), had an affair with young Abigail Deveraux (Kate Mansi). In fact, Sami has known about their torrid trysts for quite a while and has been playing the secret lovers like a Stradivarius violin.
Christian LeBlanc and Michelle Stafford
Does anybody say no to Michelle Stafford? Apparently not. The season finale of her sizzling new web series The Stafford Project —streaming Dec. 21 via YouTube and MichelleStafford.com — will feature daytime hotshots James Scott and Nadia Bjorlin (Days of Our Lives), Marco Dapper and Christian LeBlanc (The Young and the Restless), Finola Hughes and Ian Buchanan (General Hospital) and Crystal Chappell (The Bold and the Beautiful, Venice).

Patti Stanger and Denise Richards
Bravo's resident cupid, Patti Stanger, has been helping millionaires find love for six seasons. On Tuesday's episode of Millionaire Matchmaker (10/9c), she gets a visit from Denise Richards, but she's not looking for love — she wants to play matchmaker for her dear old dad, Irv Richards. We got in touch with Stanger, who spills her secrets on senior citizens, celebrities and what's to come this season.
With only four soaps left, you might think there'd be slim pickings when it comes to selecting the year's top work. Oh, hell, no!

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...

Notably snubbed was the departing As the World Turns, but the long-running CBS drama fielded ...
This week's All My Children explosion will claim at least one casualty: corporate titan Ethan Ramsey Cambias, played by the handsomest man in the northern hemisphere, James Scott. FYI: Although Ethan will breathe his last on Monday, Feb. 24, word is Scott will continue to air on AMC either in ghostly visitations, fantasies or flashbacks. Let's hope another soap snaps up this British looker soon! Doing him in is truly a sin.
