On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke, Jamey, Jillian and Regan discuss the latest in All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless storylines and news, including:
Jamey’s report that ABC’s Brian Frons has been allegedly courting former All My Children head writer Megan McTavish and is trying to convince her to return to the show. The gang discusses the pro and cons of such a possibility. Maybe the problem isn’t the writers, but executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers? Shannon Cane opts out of renewing with AMC. Luke is excited that former AMC star Alexa Havins has joined Torchwood.
The Bold and the Beautiful snaps up The Young and the Restless’ Tonya Lee Williams. Her character Olivia will be joining the wonderful world of Forresters, Logan and Spencers. Reportedly, Olivia will be related to Justin Barber. Amber has another pregnancy scheme up her sleeve, but can she pull it off? What is going on with Thomas and Brooke? Will Brooke appreciate Thomas’ advances?
Days of our Lives star Mark Hapka is leaving Salem and speaks out on Twitter about what led to his departure. Jamey isn’t happy that yet another Horton is riding off into the sunset. Bo and Hope go on the run. EJ and Nicole get engaged.
General Hospital is known for its well choreographed stunts, but has the bus crash lived up to previous “events”? The gang dives into how it all played out. Luke doesn’t understand how all the passengers were able to all fly out of the bus so easily and why there was no apparent debris. Will Jason and Sam’s baby be a miracle pregnancy or will it be because of experimental medicine?
One Life to Live’s feud between Natalie and Mad Marty is heating up and the DC gang loves it. Are these two the show’s next great rivalry? Charlie turned tail and ran through Llanview hospital after Clint confronted him. What is it about that hospital that causes grown men to act the fool? Tuc Watkins is back and has us cracking up. Will he be able to escape his captors?
The National Urban League has joined Victoria Rowell’s fight for diversity at Sony and The Young and the Restless. Jamey and Jillian weigh in on the hot topic. Billy’s search for a baby could have him adopting Daniel and Daisy’s baby. After much pleading Jack and Nick investigate Sharon’s claims of Adam’s innocence and that Skye was in fact alive.
