the latest on abc’s plans to revisit pine valley and llanview!

The In Depth Story: Between Alex leaving GREY’S ANATOMY and the latest drama surrounding THE BACHELOR and The Oscars, there was plenty for reporters and network executives to dish about at the Television Critics Association press tour earlier this month. But In Depth had only one question for ABC chief Burke: Have there been further talks about resurrecting OLTL and AMC as part of the network’s daytime lineup — or perhaps even for streaming site Disney+? After the network axed AMC in late 2011 and OLTL in early 2012, production company Prospect Park launched online reboots of both sudsers in 2013. The short-lived experiment folded amid a host of behind-the-scenes legal battles, with the rights to the shows ultimately reverting back to ABC in 2016. At last winter’s press tour, Burke teased…

nelle is plotting her next move!

The In Depth Story: Armed with her vision board of an adorable son, a loving hubby, prosperity and a big ol’ house, Nelle is sitting pretty in the Quartermaine mansion, freed from Pentonville and ready to reclaim all that she believes was stolen away from her. But there are quite a few things standing between the vixen and her ultimate endgame: a life with Michael and their son. Portrayer Chloe Lanier says Nelle’s quest “is about having a loving husband who can take care of her — because no one’s ever taken care of her before — and giving her child everything he will ever want. The most important thing for her is having two loving parents for her baby.” Now that she’s out of Pentonville, getting Michael back is at the…

two abc daytime vets pass

ONE LIFE TO LIVE’s Pamela Payton-Wright (Addie) passed away on December 14 at the age of 78. “I loved Pamela,” shares Kassie De-Paiva, who played her daughter, Blair. “She was wonderful to work with. A true talent!” Before her recurring run as Dorian’s older sister on OLTL, Payton-Wright played ANOTHER WORLD’s Hazel. In other sad news, GH alum Martin West — who was the sixth and final actor to play original character Phil Brewer — died on December 31 at the age of 82. In addition to appearing on GH from 1967-75, West also played AS THE WORLD TURNS’ Don. ABC/DONNA SVENNEVIK; ABC PHOTO ARCHIVES…

gh star to wed!

During last summer’s GH Fan Club Weekend, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) introduced fans at her gathering to her “live-in love” — and now, she’s revealed, he is her fiancé! In a sweet Instagram post last month, Grahn shared a picture of herself kissing her “soon-to-be husband” under a tree in his hometown of Eugene, OR. Although the actress has mostly kept her musician beau’s identity private, she has shared bits and pieces of their life together the past few years via her social-media posts. The couple met about three years ago when he was her daughter Kate’s professor at the University Of Southern California Thornton School Of Music. “Watching them make music together, Grahn confessed at the GHFCW, “turns me to mush.”…

will thomas get it all?

The In Depth Story: While Hope’s gratitude for him being there in her time of need may be more platonic than Thomas would like, for now, it’s a start! “There’s that old joke: The definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results,” suggests portrayer Matthew Atkinson. “That’s exactly what Thomas is going through. But don’t you go insane when you’re in love? Just a little bit?” Working so closely with her ex in recent weeks has helped remind Hope of the Thomas she used to know, and for that reason, she’s not as reluctant to be in his presence as she once was. “Thomas believes that Hope does have feelings for him, deep down, but she’s just not allowing herself to show it at…

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS fans who are eager to read the memoir of Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) — Always Young And Restless: My Life On And Off America’s #1 Daytime Drama — can circle Tuesday, July 14, as the book’s release date on their calendars! The tome is not only filled with stories about Scott’s time on Y&R but also the personal struggles that marked her childhood. “I had no mother. I had no father. I had no siblings. And the woman that was deemed to be the only choice of raising an only child was my maternal grandmother,” the former child star previously shared. “[She] suffered with mental illness and was a compulsive hoarder ruling our house with a very firm fist.”…
