IT'S SOAP NEWS FRIDAY!!!!



Anders Hove Dishes His Return From the Dead on General Hospital!

He's met his maker twice but you can't stop Cesar Faison from terrorizing General Hospital! The über-tressed supervillain — played by fan favorite Anders Hove — returned to the ABC soap Nov. 12. Not only is Faison still alive after supposedly being blown to bits in a boat explosion, he's also the brains behind the kidnapping of Robin Scorpio. TV Guide rang Hove at his home in Denmark to chat about Faison's return.

TV Guide: Your return was a spectacular surprise! The fans are going nuts!
Hove: I'm so happy to hear that. Unfortunately, we don't have GH here in Denmark so I'm missing the reaction. And I'm not the kind of guy who's on Facebook. [Laughs] Maybe I should start! It was quite a surprise that they called at all and very sweet. My God, it's been 22 years since my first time at the show! It's scary how fast time goes.

TV Guide: Had you stayed in touch with the cast?

Hove: I'm in touch with Tony Geary [Luke] and I talk to Kin Shriner [Scotty] maybe once a month. He keeps me up on what's going on. Two or three months ago, he told me there were rumors on the set that I might be coming back, but I didn't really believe it. There are always rumors.

TV Guide: Word is, your return wasn't the easiest thing to coordinate.
Hove: I had maybe three or four weeks' notice but getting a visa and work permit wasn't easy at all. ABC helped me find a U.S. lawyer, stationed in London of all places, who helped me out. I was pretty lucky. So I came to Los Angeles and shot for two days and flew out again. It felt so nice and secure on the set, like coming home. But the schedule is so much harder! We used to shoot one episode in a day. I did seven in two days! Kassie DePaiva [Blair] told me she once did four shows in one day. It's incredible what the actors and crew can do now.

TV Guide: Will you be back for another run when the truth about Faison emerges?
Hove: I don't know. At least this time around Faison won't be dead — though that's never stopped him before! They'll probably send him to jail but maybe there will be more down the line. If [exec producer] Frank Valentini needs me again, I'm there. I will never let that show down. I'm so excited working with Finola and love that Faison is obsessed with Anna. He's genuinely in love with her but has unusual ways to show it. It's a lot of fun to do a character like that.

TV Guide: Your performance is scaring the crap out of me!
Hove: Thank you very much! That's the goal! The fact that Faison is still alive proves anything is possible. You might think the soap audience would not accept this kind of thing but they do. And they do it with a lot of passion. You only find that kind of audience in America. I've never met it anywhere else. One minute they're angry, then happy, then frustrated. But they're always very faithful.

TV Guide: On top of your soap fame, you're also a big deal on the horror-film circuit.
Hove: I just attended my very first convention last March, which is where I first met Kassie DePaiva. She was there for her Evil Dead movie and I was there for Subspecies. It was quite an experience. We were in a hotel out in New Jersey and it was filled with people who remembered us from movies we did more than 20 years ago! It's unbelievable. [Laughs] Like I said, only in America!

Laura Wright Visits HOME & FAMILY And Talks Choosing The Right Wine!



Daytime Emmy Award-winning actress Laura Wright visited with hosts Mark Steines and Paige Davis and brought along some wine from Standing Sun, the northern California winery she owns with her husband John. When not in front of the camera on the popular, long-running soap opera, Wright spends time with her husband creating blends for their winery, which makes wines of the Rhone variety.

Wright had tips to share about how to choose the right wine to go with your meal and had the following recommendations:

Grenache Blanc or LeBlanc -- A crisp wine that goes great with goat cheese. Wright likes to pair this with a dish like lobster risotto or a fish. She also said that this is a good choice for someone who prefers red wine, as it has good structure and holds up nicely.

Grenache -- Wright called this a "fun wine" and describes it as a "jammier, lighter red." It's nice to drink on a hot summer day and she suggests serving it with a ligher pasta with a cream sauce or pork chops.

Syrah -- Some people like to serve a cheese plate as dessert, and this rich red wine is the perfect complement to that, as well as with a delicious chocolate cake or chocolate mousse. Laura recommends pairing this with lamb or turkey for dinner.

GSM -- This is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre wines and is great for drinking while sitting around a campfire with friends or while dining on a juicy burger.

When deciding what wine to take with you when going to someone's house, Wright recommends bringing what you like to drink yourself unless you know a particular wine that is favored by the host. When in doubt, take both a white and a red so there will be something for everyone.

Wright stars as Carly in GENERAL HOSPITAL, weekdays on ABC.

HOME & FAMILY is a two-hour weekday lifestyle, ultimate how-to show hosted by Mark Steines and Paige Davis. The program airs MONDAY-FRIDAY (9 a.m. – 11 a.m. ET/PT) on Hallmark Channel.


Soap Star Divorcing Husband Who Impersonated Cop, Is Partners with Stephen Baldwin!



Katherine Kelly Lang has been playing Brooke Forrester on THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL since 1987. But her real life divorce from husband #2 is worthy of any soap. Alex D’Andrea, father of Lang’s teenage daughter, was convicted in August of impersonating a police officer in order to intimidate people at an Ojai, California tennis club.

D’Andrea is also partnered with Stephen Baldwin, the born again Christian and reformed hard-partier in the Baldwin family, in a movie production company. Last August he was convicted by a jury in Ventura County of flashing a police badge and telling an employee of the Weil Tennis Academy that he was a cop. This was after D’Andrea’s daughter had been thrown out of the camp, according to reports. D’Andrea demanded back his $50,000. (Wow.) Ultimately he got back $28,000.

According to the Ventura County newspaper, this was the second time a jury heard this case. The first time, the jury deadlocked 10-2 in favor of guilty. D’Andrea has made all kinds of accusations against the tennis camp, but the judge wasn’t interested in hearing them. D’Andrea was sentenced to 90 days in jail and was ordered to pay a $2,500 fine and to stay away from the camp owner.



Josh Duhamel, Oliver Hudson, Mark Gordon Sell Soap Opera Drama to ABC!



Josh Duhamel (ALL MY CHILDREN's Leo) is teaming with Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts for an untitled drama about a daytime soap opera that explores the loves, lives and lunacy at an on-the-bubble network soap opera, where the antics of the cast and crew are crazier than any plot lines they broadcast. Set when the TV genre is faltering, the larger-than-life workplace family fights a never-ending desperate battle to keep their show on the air, egos secure and relationships in tact.

Hudson and Duhamel may both appear on-screen should the project move forward, though not in a series regular capacity.



Susan Lucci Regrets Wearing The Eighties Dress to End All Eighties Dresses to the Emmys!



"One dress I wore in the late late eighties to the Emmys. What was I thinking? It was a dress I bought in Toronto when I was doing a movie there. And as many of us did in the late Eighties—you couldn't put enough on your body at one time. And this dress had everything that you could possibly have in a dress. It had several materials, some were metallic, it was basically black and silver, it had lace, it had ruffles it had studs, it had rhinestones, it had poofy sleeves, off the shoulder, a fitted bodice and a full skirt. That's everything."

Kristoff St. John has playing Neil Winters in THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS for the past 22 years. He recently took WLTX backstage at the soap and revealed some personal information about his birth mother.

After more than 20 years of not seeing or not knowing where his biological mother was, he recently found her in South Carolina.

"It's a long story, but the short of it is when I was four my parents divorced and I didn't see my mom again until I was in my early 20s," St. John explained. "Then I lost touch with her for the next 20 years. I'm so happy to have a relationship with her again and thinking about coming to the beautiful state of South Carolina to visit her later this year."

'Bold and the Beautiful': Goodbye, Susan Flannery!!



The long goodbye to Stephanie Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful will finally occur on Nov. 26, when Susan Flannery performs her last scene as the drama’s beloved matriarch. As fans know, Stephanie’s fate was sealed when she learned her lung cancer returned. Her sendoff — which is the result of Flannery’s decision to retire — is a tribute as much to the actress as it is “the entire soap-opera community,” says Bradley Bell, the drama’s executive producer/head writer, to TV Guide Magazine.

“We all know each other and we deeply respect the great actors who play our matriarchs and patriarchs — the ones who made this business — and it’s been sad to see so many of them drop away without getting a proper homage.”

Here’s a sneak peek of her final moments.

DEADLY AFFAIRS Renewed For Second Season, Susan Lucci Returning As Host!



On the high heels of its successful first season, Investigation Discovery has greenlit real-life soap opera DEADLY AFFAIRS for season two. Hosted by daytime TV queen, Susan Lucci, DEADLY AFFAIRS became the 30th ID series to break the 1.0 benchmark in primetime, with the premiere episode on September 8 garnering a 1.22 household rating and 3.5 million P2+, making it the second highest series debut in network history. The series will continue to deliver stories of passionate love affairs turned crimes of passion when it premieres as a summer anchor series in 2013.

“Our first foray into the nighttime soap genre with DEADLY AFFAIRS brought the perfect combination of intriguing storytelling and guilty pleasure that enticed a passionate fan base,” said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. “We are thrilled to continue our affair with Susan Lucci and Sirens Media for the second season of DEADLY AFFAIRS and further tempt our viewers with more stories that prove real life is often stranger than fiction.”

“I have so enjoyed the real life stories of love triangles gone horribly wrong on DEADLY AFFAIRS and can’t wait for next summer when we’ll pull the covers back on even more scandalous tales,” said Lucci.

DEADLY AFFAIRS tells real-life tales of love gone terribly wrong – from wandering eyes at the workplace leading to adulterous romps in the supply closet to bible-study couples tempted by lust to commit the ultimate sin – proving affairs can be murder on the heart. Episodes feature stories interlaced with expert commentary from local authorities and true-crime experts, as well as first-person accounts from friends and family of the victims.



General Hospital Head Writer Ron Carlivati Explains The Shocking "Duke" Reveal!!



Yesterday, it was confirmed that the would-be Lavery is really notorious Port Charles baddie Cesar Faison, played once again by Anders Hove. Not enough of a shock for you? At the end of the show, Faison paid a visit to the real Duke, who is very much alive. GH Head Writer Ron Carlivati spoke exclusively to Digest about pulling off what he aptly calls "a double whammy."

Soap Opera Digest: Sneaky, sneaky, Ron! Having sat on this secret for weeks now, how excited were you to actually take in Friday's episode?
Ron Carlivati: I was just excited as a viewer watching it because I thought they did such an amazing job. I was not expecting that mask to look so real and the way they did it, it really was very exciting and very shocking, I thought. I think they have a very good idea of where we were going, but I still think it's very exciting to watch it play out.

Digest: Was the Faison reveal your game plan all along when you brought back Duke?
Carlivati: My thought even before you saw Ian with Kimberly [the first time] was that it had to be Faison that was behind the whole thing and that's who took Robin. I think it's the one that makes the most sense. So Frank [Valentini, executive producer] and I talked about, "What can we do in that reveal that will be a little different and not make it so obvious?" And then we came up with the idea of showing Ian. So, then it just became the trick of, at what point are we going to go for it and reveal it? And I felt it couldn't go on so long because I knew people were angry at the way Duke was behaving.

Digest: What was the thinking in revealing the real Duke to be alive right away?
Carlivati: I thought it was important to show him alive the same time we were showing that this wasn't the real Duke because I knew there was going to be a lot of disappointment from fans who felt, "Oh, you dangled the return of Duke under our nose and then you snatched it back." I didn't want people to be upset and angry. So we made the decision to do a double whammy and show Real Duke at the end of the day. And you will see in the ensuing days how he was able to appropriate Duke's fingerprints, his memories, etc. Faison felt that the only way to make Anna love him was to have the face of someone that she could love in return, which only leaves a few options, such as Robert or Duke. Duke was the one who was accessible, so that's what he went with.

Digest: Were you excited to get the audience reaction to that Friday cliffhanger?
Carlivati: I was! There was something going on with Twitter. If I'm able to, I like to see what people are saying live during the show. I was so excited for Friday. I was like, "I can't wait to see people's reactions when this happens!". It's exciting and we really run with it. It's a story you won't have to wait for months and months to see unfold. It just goes like gangbusters from today on.





Bo Linton to appear in GENERAL HOSPITAL!



Canyon Lake actor Bo Linton has had some recent acting developments. The first is a small speaking role on “General Hospital” that will air on ABC November 23.



Blake Berris Interview!



You seem to thrive on portraying quirky guys. Is that your preference or do you long to play romantic leading men?
I love roles that are layered, where there’s more going on than what’s at the surface. I’m not at all opposed to playing the more romantic comedy stuff. But, right now, what I’ve been enjoying is these out there, eccentric or troubled characters and a lot of drug addicts. (Laughs.)

Nick fits right in. After all, he has committed murder, albeit while under the influence of drugs. Is that what lured you back to Days?
They basically made me an offer I couldn’t refuse, and I loved the idea of returning as Nick. I love what they did with him at the end, when I left the show. The idea of playing him, years later, out of jail was very interesting to me. So I decided to go for it.

How is Nick different now than he was before?
I don’t think there’s any way anyone goes through three years of being in the prison system and not have that dramatically affect their psyche. What we’re seeing now is the Nick who’s come to terms with the really terrible things he’s done and the dark side of himself that I don’t even think he knew was there. He’s desperately trying to keep himself on the right path, but he’s prone to these obsessive relationships with things and people. So he’s trying very hard to suppress the dark side of himself and stay on the right path.

Speaking of relationships, how do you like working with Camila Banus(Gabi)?
I love Camila. She’s awesome, and Nick and Gabi are an interesting pairing. Both characters have gone through so much. I like how slowly they built [the relationship]. Nick was almost freaked out about what would happen to him, if he got involved with somebody.

Nick’s not a geek any more, like he was your first time on the show. Are you happy about that?
I am. He’s grown out of that. I like the character better now. I’m having a lot more fun with the character this time around.

At the moment, Nick’s working at the Brady Pub, but Sami has offered him a job at Countess Wilhelmina. Does that mean we’re eventually going to see Corporate Nick?
Yeah, you are going to see that. A few weeks ago, I finally got clothes that weren’t Brady Pub clothes. I was like, “Alright! Cool stuff. I’m moving up in the world.”

Well, Nick is a brainiac, so it is a logical move.
Totally. The longer you watch, the more they start bringing in that genius side of him, that very cunning side of him.
