Sean Kanan by John Sciulli/WireImage.com
Not 24 hours after news of General Hospital starlet Kirsten Storms' own DUI arrest broke, TMZ is reporting that daytime-TV journeyman and onetime Karate Kid nemesis Sean Kanan was busted on August 18 by the LAPD, on suspicion of driving under the influence. Kanan, whose soap resume includes turns as The Bold and the Beautiful's Deacon Sharpe and GH's alcoholic A.J. Quartermaine, posted $30,000 bail after being charged with two counts, including driving with a blood alcohol level of .08-plus. Due back in court on Monday, he faces a max of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine, per count. This being Kanan's second DUI offense (the first came in '98), it carries a minimum jail stint of 96 hours. A spokesperson for Kanan had no comment to TMZ.
Smashface Productions' Zadi Diaz with celeb vlogger Dan McVicar at the Halloween Vlog Fest
This past Saturday, about a hundred members of the "vlogging" (that's video plus blogging) community gathered in Santa Monica to partake in the second-annual Halloween Vlog Fest, cosponsored by TV Guide and Yahoo!.
The West Coast Yahoo! campus offices were transformed from their regular corporate look into a festive Halloween-themed party complete with cobwebs, black and orange balloons, fake (phew!) spiders, and a tombstone that curiously kept falling over during the early parts of the evening. (Hmm, paging Jennifer Love Hewitt?) There was also plenty of Halloween candy, but guests seemed more interested in the black-and-white fortune cookies provided by Chin Chin, a popular L.A. eatery that catered the gala with spring rolls, noodles in peanut sauce, and its famous Chinese chicken salad.

Ever since The Young and the Restless wrapped the Tom Fisher murder case, Ted Shackelford — aka Genoa City prosecutor Will Bardwell — has been MIA. No worries, though. The Knots Landing grad returns when Will is needed to tackle legal issues that arise from Jabot Cosmetics selling tainted moisturizer.
Side note: Since Y&R

Now Patrick Duffy fans don't have to settle for watching his daily Dallas reruns on SoapNet. The artist formerly known as Bobby Ewing reported to the Bold and the Beautiful set this week to start playing the contract role of Brooke's father, Stephen Logan. (The part was previously played by Robert Pine.) Duffy — who first airs on April 18 — isn't the first big Dallas alum to do B&B. Last year Linda Gray (aka Sue Ellen) played Priscilla, the meddling mother of Sydney Penny's Samantha.

Bold and the Beautiful star Jack Wagner (Nick) was the big winner during Wheel of Fortune's Soap Stars Week. Solving Vanna's puzzles like a pro, he scored $142,550 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in honor of his brother, Dennis, who is currently in remission with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. In so doing, Wagner not only did a really good deed, he won the most cash any celebrity contestant has ever won on Wheel. Nice going, Jack!
"I was fortunate to be involved in this unique and magical moment on Wheel of Fortune," Wagner told TVGuide.com via e-mail. "I hope and pray that my brother can be an inspiration to families and patients who suffer from this illness."
Last week's second-biggest winner was Days of
Scoop! There's currently a Bold and the Beautiful audition script floating around that features an emotional scene between Ridge and Phoebe. This all but confirms longtime buzz that the CBS sudser will recast Phoebe and Steffy, who are Ridge and Taylor's identical teenage daughters. Even so, B&B's rep insists to TVGuide.com that "there is no truth to the rumor that we are recasting [the twins]. Alex and Addison Hoover are recurring in those roles." Well, for now, anyway.
Saved by the Bell grad Mario Lopez — who once donned a Speedo to play gay Olympic diving champ Greg Louganis — is now plunging into the soap suds. Lopez joins The Bold and the Beautiful's cast on March 20 as Dr. Christian Ramirez. He's the hunky younger brother of L.A. firefighter Hector Ramirez, who's played by Lorenzo Lamas. Sounds muy caliente!
