On today’s episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey, Jillian and Regan discuss the latest in All My Children, As the World Turns, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless storylines and news, including:
ABC reassures One Life to Live fans that it isn’t canceling their soap. Cole (Brandon Buddy)beats the crap out of Todd(Trevor St. John) in one of the most violent scenes we’ve watched in daytime. Will All My Children’s Greenlee get a miracle baby with David Hayward (Vincent Irizarry)? Regan isn’t a fan of miracle pregnancies, but Luke doesn’t mind since it undoes some more of the Madden era. General Hospital’s Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) takes the stand and testifies at Sonny’s trial.
The Young and the Restless signs former Guiding Light star Jeff Branson and lands Sean Young for a short stint. Why is Y&R bringing on guests like Sean Young when we rarely see Melody Thomas Scott? Mary Beth Evans returns to As the World Turns as Oakdale’s Sierra. Does anyone believe that Lily (Noelle Beck) would keep the existence of Craig’s (Jon Lindstrom) son a secret for all these years? Is The Bold and the Beautiful’s Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) manipulating Donna (Jennifer Gareis) to get his hands back on Forrester or is he just trying to be a good brother-in-law?
Alison Sweeney and Kristian Alfonso (pictured above) were among the many Days of our Lives stars who lit up the red carpet at the book launch for Ken Corday’s new book, The Days of our Lives: The True Story of One Family's Dream and the Untold History of Days of our Lives.

As the World Turns is bringing back Sierra Esteban (Mary Beth Evans) and Lucy Montgomery (Sarah Glendening) for a handful of episodes, according to We Love Soaps. In a post on her blog at Hybrid Mom Evans commented on her return to Oakdale.
A few days after wrapping Days I got a call to go to NY for a handful of episodes of As The World Turns. Now this is getting fun. Just when you think, “what will I do next”…something surprises you. Allowing yourself to be open and ready for an opportunity I think is partly the key to success.
As some of you may have heard, Shane Donovan (Charles Shaughnessy) and Kimberly Brady (Patsy Pease)— one of daytime's most beloved pairings of all time— are set to be reunited on Days of Our Lives soon. We long time DAYS fans know there is some unfinished business for these two starcrossed lovers. Shane and Kim's love story was forever tarnished back in 1992 when Shane was disastrously paired with Kim's sister Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), much to the disgust of viewers, resulting in backlash.
With an assortment of fan favourites makes their way back to Salem for Alice Horton's upcoming exit storyline and Bo (Peter Reckell) currently offscreen helping his big sister, Kim battle a medical crisis, there is a bit of a buzz around the Internet at the moment that Kim's cancer diagnosis may some how pave the way for a Shane and Kim reunion. But the question on everybody's lips is, will Shane and Kim be given a quickie reunion and head off into the sunset, or if perhaps they might hang around Salem and/or pop in from time to time, like the recently returned Wally Kurth and Judi Evans (Justin and Adrienne). I know I'm definitely hoping for the latter! Check out the video clip below recalling the couple's epic love story. READ MORE
