In a first for daytime drama, CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful went all the way to the Middle East for the wedding of Brooke Logan and Bill Spencer (Katherine Kelly Lang and Don Diamont, pictured below). The exotic adventure, shot in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, airs May 23 through June 3 and includes an uninvited guest — Brooke's ex-hubby Ridge Forrester (Thorsten Kaye), who is determined to stop the I do's. In a wet-and-wild twist, Ridge falls out of a helicopter and into the Persian Gulf and disappears. But is it before or after he gets to the ceremony? Kaye told TV Guide Magazine all about it. Well, almost all.

It's March Madness on CBS's The Bold and the Beautiful! Katie (Heather Tom) and Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) hit the sack. Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) hits the bottle. Dead Darla (Schae Harrison) returns as a ghost. And who knows what's going on with that crazy Aly (Ashlyn Pearce)? TV Guide Magazine went to exec producer-head writer Bradley Bell for all the dish.

Soap news doesn't get much bigger — or cooler — than this! All My Children great Thorsten Kaye (Zach) has been cast as the new Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful and will hit the CBS soap Dec. 13. Details about the character's return are few at this time but...

Yes, soap fans, it's really, truly, finally happening. New 30-minute episodes of All My Children and One Life to Live — cancelled by ABC back in 2011 — will premiere April 29 on The Online Network (available via Hulu and iTunes). These long-delayed, buzzed-about reboots are "a new and really exciting way of telling soap stories," says AMC's Thorsten Kaye (who plays Zach, seen here with Debbi Morgan's Angie).
Julia Barr will return to All My Children, The Online Network announced Friday.
Scene: A massive converted warehouse somewhere in Brooklyn, late 2011. The lights come up on the cast of an ambitious network drama about the making of a Broadway musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe as they screen the series' pilot during a catered lunch break. Once the credits roll, so do the waves of applause...
As anyone who's read the copious critical raves knows, Smash — the most faaabulous show that's not on Bravo — is all that and an orchestra seat. Produced by Steven Spielberg, created by Emmy nominee Theresa Rebeck (NYPD Blue), loaded with tunes by Hairspray Tony winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman and boasting a cast so good you'd think it was on cable, this stage-door soap is either gonna be a knock-'em-dead blockbuster or one of TV's splashiest misfits.
It's risky for sure. There's a reason...
Susan Lucci is not in denial. She knows Tuesday was her last day filming All My Children as it exists now on ABC.
At the same time, she said, "it just didn't seem real."
"Walking out on to the set for my first scene yesterday morning, I have to say, I started to feel it," the actress told TVGuide.com Wednesday, just several hours after the entire production wrapped its storied 42-year-run on broadcast television. "I had to rein my emotions back in because I had to work ...

Cara making out with David? Griffin being bullied by Zach? If you feel like the Castillos are getting the short end of things as All My Children wraps its ABC run, you're not alone.
Before the network announced that it was pulling the home of La Lucci off the air after almost 42 years, Pine Valley's newest residents, a brother-sister team from Doctors Without Borders, were en route to love and happily ever after (for as long as that means on daytime TV). According to Jordi Vilasuso and Lindsay Hartley, who joined the cast as the Castillos last November, Cara was brought in as Jake's estranged wife and "soul mate" (not Tad's, and certainly not David's!), while Griffin was hatched as a love interest for Erica Kane's grieving daughter Kendall. But it was all so very short-lived!
Because of the axing — which spawned the resurrection of AMC superstars Dixie (Cady McClain) and Zach (Thorsten Kaye) — the Castillos have been reduced to being little more than appendages of resident villain David (Vincent Irizzary). What do Vilasuso and Hartley have to say about it? Plenty. The actors spoke with TVGuide.com Friday, just days before the series wrapped production entirely, about being hit with the cancellation curve ball, the Castillos' storyline switcheroo, and the online future of All My Children.
