Disappointment at the Daytime Emmy awards


We hoped Nancy Lee Grahn or Tricia Cast (see the News of 05/12 below). Finally the 38th Daytime Emmy awards ceremony gave yesterday the outstanding supporting actress award to Heather Tom, for her part of Katie Logan Spencer in The Bold and the Beautiful.
We hope that it will be for another time for our two former Santa Barbara actresses !

Eva LaRue's last visit to Pine Valley


Eva LaRue (ex-Margot Collins) will make a comeback the time of a few episodes in All my Children this summer. In fact, the actress benefits from the summer break of CSI : Miami to make a last appearance in her role as Maria Santos Grey before the end of the soap in September (see the News of 04/14 below).
Eva had left
All my Children in 2005 (see the News of 05/05/2005), and has already reappeared in it during one single episode in January 2010.
She will join
her partners in Pine Valley on the screens as from July 19.

Eileen Davidson, now the fourth !


Eileen Davidson (ex-Kelly Capwell) has announced it herself yesterday : this is on June 15 that will be released in the United States her fourth novel, Swingin 'in the Rain.
Just like her three previous books,
Death in Daytime, Dial Emmy For Murder and Diva Las Vegas : A Soap Opera Mystery, the actress mingles crimes and vengeance in the show-business and soap operas world.

Louise Sorel leaves Days of our Lives


Two years after her comeback in the soap (see the News of 07/28/2009), Louise Sorel (ex-Augusta Lockridge) will leave Days of our Lives. Some likely economic reasons, plus a change in the production team, led the soap to say goodbye to two of its favorite actresses, Louise and Crystal Chappell (ex-Jane Kingsley in Santa Barbara).
Louise said that h
er contract will run until September 13, but there is no guarantee that she continues shooting until that day. The actress had taken over in 2009 her character of Vivian Alamain after nine years of absence in Days of our Lives. Remain hopeful of a turnaround this time in a shorter time...

Kim Zimmer's autobiography


Next August, Kim Zimmer (ex-Jodie Walker) will publish in the United States her autobiography, I'm Just Sayin' ! : Three Deaths, Seven Husbands, and a Clone ! My Life as a Daytime Diva, focusing on her career and her role as Reva Shayne in Guiding Light, whom she has played for over twenty years.
The object of all the
curiosities is : do the actress will talk about her few months in Santa Barbara ? Answer on August 02...

The nominations for the upcoming Daytime Emmy awards ceremony fell yesterday Wednesday. Two former Santa Barbara actresses are nominated in the same category, best outstanding supporting actress : Nancy Lee Grahn (ex-Julia Wainwright) for her part of Alexis Davis in General Hospital, and Tricia Cast (ex-Christie DuVall) for her part of Nina Webster in The Young and the Restless, which she has taken back on a recurring basis since 2008.

Good luck to both of our favorites

The soap-operas news in the United States


The American network ABC announced today the cancellation of two of its soap-operas : All my Children and One Life to Live. For many months, some rumors persisted about the risk of disappearance of one of the daytime soaps of the network, but this double cancellation is both a very unpleasant surprise and a large upheaval in the now very small world of the soap-operas. We recall that CBS' saving measures had already caused the end of Guiding Light and As the World Turns respectively in 2009 and 2010 (see the News of 04/03/2009 and of 12/10/2009).
All my Children, created in January 1970, will see its final episode this year, in September. One Life to Live, created in July 1968, will end in January 2012. ABC confirmed that it however maintained on the air its latest soap-opera, General Hospital. The other two soaps will be replaced by talk shows, cheaper to produce.
We wait for the reactions among others of Vincent Irizarry (ex-Dr. Scott Clark), currently in All my Children (see the
News of 11/26/2010) and of Kim Zimmer (ex-Jodie Walker), currently in One Life to Live (see the News of 08/15/2010), who had already suffered the cancellation of Guiding Light in 2009...
