Only in Salem, kids, only in Salem. Days of Our Lives heartthrobs Eric Martsolf (Brady) and Galen Gering (Rafe) claim they had no problem shooting the soap's Magic Mike spoof airing April 23. But let's get real here. When you launch your career on Passions — as both actors did — you probably don't have much dignity left!

Question: Are you as I stumped as I am about what makes the NCIS Red Team unique? In last week's episode of NCIS: LA, there was a moment when they were trying to tell a Mexican gunman to put his weapon down and none of them could speak Spanish. Which is odd given they are suppose to be a very mobile unit that goes anywhere, you would think they would be well versed in multiple languages. I was under the impression they were going to be NCIS' version of Seal Team Six. As for casting, the only one of the team that made an impression on me was the Aussie agent Claire Keats (Gillian Alexy). I still think Kelli Giddish would have been a better choice for the lead. Just my thoughts. — Leon
She's been an amnesiac art thief, a sleeping-pill poppin' wacko and a kick-ass-and-take-names policewoman. Heck, Days of Our Lives' Hope Brady has even been dead! But Kristian Alfonso is still alive and well and playing the part, 30 years after she first set foot on the Days soundstage. April 14 marks the big anniversary. TV Guide Magazine spoke with the beloved suds sensation about her stunning run in Salem.

Will fans have to say goodbye to The Young and the Restless' Tucker McCall?
It appears so, according to Soap Opera Uncensored, which reports that Stephen Nichols has taped...
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! If anything, the precariousness of daytime drama has almost everyone acting their butts off and one dynamic behind-the-scenes duo giving us some honest-to-goodness hope for the future. Cartini rocks!

Last week, The Young and the Restless celebrated its 24th year at the top of the daytime drama ratings, The Associated Press reports.<
Chandler Massey, Freddie Smith
Get out your calendars. After months and months of frustrating delays, false starts and countless emotional pitfalls, Days of Our Lives' Will and Sonny will finally make love on the NBC soap's Nov. 14 episode. And — steam alert! — TV Guide Magazine has this exclusive video preview of what's sure to be a very talked-about scene (below).
"The Will and Sonny fans have waited a long time for this but the delay has been a good thing," says Freddie Smith, who plays Sonny. "It's allowed the audience to get to know our characters and to get to a place where they are really rooting for them to get together. I don't expect anyone will think the sex scene is controversial. Hopefully, we're past that. This isn't a story about two gay guys. It's about two human beings who truly love each other."
