Update: Egg meet face. It looks like Nancy Lee Grahn's daughter Kate has more than one producer Godmother! Grahn was tweeting about the hiring of Lisa De Cazotte at Days of Our Lives. I guessed wrong and reader Charleyhorse had it right! #Falls on sword.
I was just about to settle in for a quiet Saturday night when one of Daytime Confidential's readers/listeners asked me on Facebook if I knew anything about the "big soap news" General Hospital star Nancy Lee Grahn tweeted was set to break on Monday. Of course, being the good (read: nosey) soap blogger I am, I went to La Grahn's Twitter handle and found this tantalizing teaser:
Very excited about soap news about to be broken Monday. I LOVE the person that this is about. She is Kate's Godmother. That's all I'll say READ MORE
I smell another media tour coming... How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris made his New Year's resolution on Twitter and made a little reference to his war of words involving The Young and the Restless' Eric Braeden. Harris stated:
Neil's New Year Resolutions, Part 3: Try not to insult aged soap stars, especially when you're on the same network.
The tiff between The Young and the Restless' Eric Braeden and How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris just got even nastier. The Y&R actor spoke with The Hollywood Reporter yesterday stating that Harris could:
"get his teeth knocked in for that kind of nonsense."
Huh... Braeden admits he bowed out of the guest starring role due to being tired from the work at Y&R and hip surgery, but also reveals he was given few lines on the primetime show:
"Two lines, I don't do that for anyone."
Eric Braeden to Deadline Re: Neil Patrick Harris: "It's Christmastime And I Forgive Him For His Transgression"By Jillian Bowe on December 17, 2010
Here we go again. The Young and the Restless' Eric Braeden released a statement to Deadline regarding How I Met Your Mother's Neil Patrick Harris slamming Braeden for backing out of his guest spot. Braeden stated:
I have been in this business for 50 years, have seen so many actors come and go -- most of them never to be seen or heard from again. I suggest whoever this young fellow is that he enjoy his success and count his blessings and save his money. My first time on [HIMYM] I enjoyed working with the writers, directors, and crew enormously. However, I did not have the pleasure of meeting most of the cast, including this fellow who put his foot in his mouth by saying what he did. It's Christmastime and I forgive him for his transgression." Braeden says he pulled out of the HIMYM appearance partly due to exhaustion. "I have been overworked at Y&R. I have been doing 40 and 50 pages a day. I was [also] not aware of what they wanted me to do until the day before.
