Current and former soap stars, from The Young and the Restless’ Melody Thomas Scott to Days of Our Lives grad Trevor Donovan, walked the red carpet at the 2013 GLAAD Media Awards on April 20 in Los Angeles. Crystal Chappell, The Talk’s Sara Gilbert, cast members from Days of Our Lives, ex-One Life to Live stars, The Bold and the Beautiful's Linsey Godfrey and Guiding Light grad Matt Bomer also celebrated the evening.
What would Kyle (Brett Claywell), John McBain (Michael Easton) and Commissioner Bo Buchanan (Robert S. Woods) have to say about this?! TMZ is reporting former One Life To Live fan favorite Scott Evans was arrested in Los Angeles on Tuesday evening, for allegedly trying to buy drugs from an undercover police officer. READ MORE
Former One Life To Live fan favorite Scott Evans (ex-Fish) has landed a guest spot on USA's White Collar. Expect Evans' character to mix things up with series lead and former Guiding Light star Matt Bomer.

Excited by the historic (and joyous) overruling of Prop 8, celebs have taken to Twitter to sing kumbaya and bask in the triumph of equality. The Hollywood ABC blog has compiled a list of their responses. Among them were three soap actors -- Michael Muhney (Y&R), Scott Evans (ex-OLTL) and Brett Claywell (OLTL). The latter two comments were especially bittersweet, since their own historic gay storyline on One Life to Live was given the shaft by panicked ABC execs buckling to bigotry. Here's what those three actors said (Scott Evans' is my personal favorite):
Prop 8 over-freaking-turned! Here's to ANYONE in love enjoying the right to marry. The good guys won this time!
With all the war and hunger and poverty, it's great to know that some still simply believe in love. Congratulations California! Equality is not [a] privilege. It's a human right!
What an incredible day. Not over, but what a huge step. Suck on that Prop 8 "yes" voters.
And as a non-celeb, if I may add my own: CONGRATULATIONS to all the couples in California who can now do what they should have been allowed to do all this time. May the rest of the country follow suit, and may this someday just all be a triumphant chapter in the history of American civil rights.
