Melody Thomas Scott on Nikki's Big Young and Restless Secret

Melody Thomas Scott and Steve Burton

If you're going to reveal a shocking, 33-year-old secret, at least wait for November sweeps! Fans of CBS's The Young and the Restless know that drama-prone socialite Nikki Newman — played by Melody Thomas Scott — was impregnated by a creepy cult leader many years ago and gave birth to a son. Nuns put the baby up for adoption and Nikki only recently learned that the child has grown up to become stressed-out war vet Dylan McAvoy (Steve Burton), who arrived in Genoa City this year after a stint in Afghanistan. She has yet to tell him he's her spawn. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Thomas Scott about the big, volcanic reveal, coming Nov. 22. It's a doozy!

Kin Shriner

When we last saw General Hospital's Scotty Baldwin — the fan fave rascal played by Kin Shriner — he was abruptly ending his marriage to Laura (Genie Francis) because he suspected she was still hung up on her ex-hubby Luke (Anthony Geary). But Scotty didn't flee Port Chuck to lick his wounds. Instead he vowed to stay in town and reclaim his old gig as D.A. Now the election campaign is about to kick off — but who the hell would vote for a guy whose rap sheet includes robbery, blackmail, kidnapping, assault and illegal burial? Well, for one, Shriner would!

Exclusive: General Hospital's Anthony Geary On Life, Death and the Future of Luke and Laura

Anthony Geary

General Hospital's Luke Spencer is slowly dying from polonium poisoning so what better time to interview the guy who plays him, seven-time Emmy winner Anthony Geary? TV Guide Magazine corralled daytime's lion king to discuss his character's current bout with mortality and other dishy topics — from his issues with Luke and Laura to the GH head writer who wanted him fired!

TV Guide Magazine: What's the trick to making us believe Luke is at death's door when we know damn well they'd never get rid of you?
Geary: That's very kind but, in the soap business, everyone is expendable and you never take anything for granted. That said, I'm not sure the audience does buy this. When that ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko was poisoned with polonium a few years back — they think by Putin — he was covered in gruesome sores. It's a hellish death. I really wanted to go there but they wouldn't let me. [Laughs] I do love to look bad.
