The men of ABC Daytime are talking dirty again, this time for Extra! General Hospital's Brandon Barash and Chad Duell; One Life to Live's David Fumero, Nicholas Robuck, David Gregory and John-Paul Lavoisier and All My Children's Jordi Vilasuso and Trent Garrett, all talked the art of getting sneaky-freaky to promote their steamy, two-page spread in the latest Life & Style.
I can't decide which revelation I got a kick out of more, Barash admitting he's an after sex cuddler or Lavoisier getting a little too excited about chocolate liqueur! Watch the clips after the jump and then run out and pick up the Nov. 15 copy of Life & Style (the one with Kendra on the cover) to see the Mouse House boys' um, spread!
Some of ABC Daytime's most popular soap hunks took to a hot tub for a photo shoot and Entertainment Tonight was there to film it all! One Life to Live's David Fumero (Christian), John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex), David Gregory (Ford) and Nick Robuck (James); General Hospital's Brandon Barash (Johnny) and Chad Duell (Michael) and All My Children's Trent Garrett (Asher) and Jordi Vilasuso (Griffin) were all on hand to dish about soap love scenes and memorable fan encounters. Watch a clip from the show after the jump!
Some of ABC Daytime's best and brightest came out on Oct. 7 to perform in The World Goes Round, a Broadway muscial revue to support the LA Gay and Lesbian Center. Soaps.com caught up with several of the talented performers, including Brandon Barash (Johnny, General Hospital), who sang a song about Sara Lee baked goods, in addition to helping up the hunk factor during a bit performed by All My Children's Bobbie Eakes (Krystal).
After a month of working all day on the set and then rehearsing a few hours every night for "The World Goes Round," Barash, who hadn't done a musical in 13 years, admitted it was exhausting. "It's been a scramble, but it's all come together in the last week or two and we're excited with our product."
As for his alter ego, Johnny Zacchara, he had no idea what was to come for the mobster, but he's ready for anything. When asked what he'd like to see for Johnny, Brandon replied, "Something, 'cause he's been kind of stagnant lately. Something other than him griping about this sister because I think that ship has sailed."

Watching the ABC daytime lineup lately has been a little déjà vu for this old time soap viewer. Perhaps “copying” is too strong a term. Maybe “homage” would be a better word or, perhaps, “sticky fingers.” On the other hand, the stories in question here are different from either classic soap opera tropes (boy/girl-meets-hates-falls-in-love-with-girl/boy stuff) or classic soap cliches (supervillain-returns-from-the-dead-with-an-evil-twin shenanigans) because of their very specificity.
All three of the ABC’s daytime dramas currently are airing stories or arcs that have been a little too close to the mark of several cancelled Proctor & Gamble shows, begging the question “Does Brian Frons really admire those old, now defunct serials as much as he loves pilfering CBS soap stars?” Let us count the ways: READ MORE
