CBS Soaps In Depth
A little birdie has told me that Stacy Haiduk (ex-Hannah, All My Children) has been cast in the role of Smilin' Jack's (Peter Bergman) new love interest and has already started taping scenes. No word yet on when they will air.
The latest edition of Soaps In Depth is reporting that Mackenzie Browning, the beloved granddaughter of Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper), will be heading back to town in March. As it was reported by yours truly last week, the rumor mill was hinting that a character named Alex was a smokescreen for either Mac or a replacement for Colleen. No word yet on who's taking over the role again, but stay with Daytime Confidential for the latest updates.
Here lies the final resting place of the Great American Soap Opera
A good and constant companion to millions,
The genre lost its way toward its Final Fade to Black.
Neglect and misconception caused the genre's downfall,
But their collective memory shall live in our hearts. Forever.

Yes, my friends, it is time to put on your best Sunday black, sit Shiva if you are among our Jewish friends, remove all your jewelry if you are Muslim, burn those collections of Soap Opera Digest in a Shraddha ceremony for our Hindu cousins, and the rest of us heathens and infidels can cuss out Brian Frons, Barbara Bloom, Ellen Wheeler and Ken Corday in polysyllabic orgasmic fury. A flame in the wind has flickered its last, the bright promise of our date with life is forever gone. Today is no longer ours. Stick a fork in daytime soaps. They are done. I just have one tiny question:
Are soaps really dead? READ MORE
Check out the latest CBS Soaps in Depth.
Inside there is a casting call that will interest you.
The magazine is reporting The Young and The Restless has sent out a casting for a fiesty sales girl and a snooty woman that looks like Gloria. Inside the mag it has a lil' teaser stating, "Could her sister be headed to Genoa City?" Hmm...
Just when you thought one Gloria was trouble, another one may be on the way!
I can't wait to see how this plays out.
Pick up next week’s copy of CBS’s Soaps in Depth, in there you have some juicy tidbits on what's going down with David/Nikki/Paul straight from Young and The Restless headwriter Maria Bell's mouth! She answers the burning question that fans such as myself asked, "Why did Nikki marry David when she has inklings that he's back to gambling!"
Over on CBS Soaps In Depth the head line is "Shocking Changes Hit Young and Restless" but I'm more curious about the "Will Phyllis Betray Nick With Another Newman?". I'm really interested to see how Adam's growing interest with Phyliss plays out.
Moving on to more somber topics. 2007 may not have been Jesse Soffer or Jennifer Landon's most stellar year in terms of storylines but they will be missed if they do leave As the World Turns.
Of course I can just imagine how many emergency rooms filled up when Young and Restless fans had coronaries from the thought of Gloria moving back into the Abbot mansion. Let's hope that they and she has medical insurance because for some reason I have a feeling she's going to be in for a bumpy ride (no puns intended) living with Jack.
So what is everyone thinking of Shirley Jones so far? Personally, I'm impressed but John's fingering the knife in every other scene is a bit much if you ask me.
