EXCLUSIVE: Exiting DAYS Starlet Molly Burnett Talks Booking Gigs For MTV, Hallmark and Starring in Improvised Soap 'Scandal Crest'By Jamey Giddens on September 12, 2012
Take heart, soap lovers already mourning the loss of Molly Burnett from the suds. The soon-to-be exiting Days of Our Lives actress has already found a new soapy gig. She'll be co-starring in ACME Comedy's upcoming improvised, online soap opera Scandal Crest.
I caught up with Burnett to get all the deets on Scandal Crest, which will reunite her with former DAYS co-stars Freddie Smith and Eric Martsolf. I also found out what else the talented young actress has been up to since leaving DAYS, including booking a guest star spot on MTV's upcoming Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous and a new Hallmark movie!
Daytime Confidential: You're on your way to becoming for webisoaps what Jamie Lee Curtis was for horror flicks — the go-to girl! First you did Empire, then Venice, now you're doing Scandal Crest for ACME. What do you like about doing these kinds of projects?
Molly Burnett: Acting is my first love. I just like to work. I am very privileged to have been given the opportunity to participate in these great projects. There is a lot of freedom with web series, and the people that are running them, along with the casts, are such a pleasure to work with.
DC: After starring on Days of Our Lives for four seasons, you're an old pro at mastering tons of dialogue and blocking, but Scandal Crest will be an improvised soap opera. How on earth will that work, and are you nervous?
MB: Improv is such a temperamental thing. It's really easy to take something too far and lose the humor. Am I nervous? Sure, but it is reassuring knowing the talent I'll be surrounded by. READ MORE
Worried the filming of another The Note movie for Hallmark Channel will keep Genie Francis away from The Young and the Restless for too long? Never fear, Soaps in Depth has this assurance from a Y&R spokesperson,
“the actress not only will be back, but there's some major storylines coming up as Genevieve becomes even more woven into the fabric of Genoa City.”
I wonder what Genevieve will do next?

Fear not Sam fans, the magazine states the actress traveled between L.A. and Vancouver to work on both GH and the movie.
She may be an iconic homemaking maven, who puts Desperate Housewives’ Bree Van de Kamp (Marcia Cross) to shame, but when Martha Stewart’s new Hallmark Channel show gets taken to the woodshed and spanked in the ratings by Little House on the Prairie and Golden Girls reruns you know there is a problem.
According to The Live Feed, the 10 a.m. airing of The Martha Stewart Show on the Hallmark Channel dropped 61 percent from Golden Girls reruns during the same time a year ago and the 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. re-airings dropped 67 and 71 percent from Little House on the Prairie reruns a year ago. Even worse, the Hallmark Channel’s 25-54 target female audience was down significantly.
