On today’s CBS and Days of Our Lives episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Jamey, Mike, Jillian and Melodie discuss the latest in As the World Turns, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, Guiding Light and The Young and the Restless news and storylines, including:
Louise Sorel is returning to Days of Our Lives as Vivian Alamain, which means Jamey and Luke are in Salem heaven. They discuss what Sorel’s return means for DAYS and Jamey reminisces about her role Augusta Wainwright since the 25th anniversary of Santa Barbara just passed. Salem is getting another familiar face to NBC soap fans. Lindsey Hartley is joining DAYS, taking over the role of Rafe’s sister.
Lynn Herring makes her debut on As the World Turns, as Henry Coleman’s mother. Mike and Mel give their first impressions of her and Janet’s new sister Teri. Margo and Casey continue to lie to Tom about Riley being Adam. Mel believes that ATWT is actually getting better, do her co-hosts agree?
Ridge and Taylor are pronounced Man and Horse on The Bold and the Beautiful, which has Jillian and Jamey in stitches. Steffy and Thomas team up to try and stop Brooke from interrupting the wedding. Is Steffy finally living up to her grandmother’s name?
Jeffrey returns to Springfield, but does anyone care? David Andrew MacDonald returns as (insert name), but did anyone actually believe he was dead? Mike didn’t. The best thing about Guiding Light last week didn’t even air on TV; it was Mimi Torchin’s interview with Maureen Garret. Jamey reveals the “truth” behind how, when and where Ellen Wheeler’s failed vision for GL came from.
The Daytime Confidential gang weighs in on the controversial Deacon, Amber and Daniel triangle storyline. Should Eric Braeden take a paycut? Is Billy Abbott Genoa City’s next Victor Newman? If so, who could be his Jack? Luke suggests Deacon Sharpe. Jamey thinks Victoria and suggests Sarah Brown as Victoria vs. Billy would be dynamic. Sarah Brown’s contract with General Hospital is up in 2009. Should The Young and the Restless try to snag her away from Port Charles?
All this and much more on today’s “visionary” episode of Daytime Confidential.
