B&B Alum Joins Web Soap WINTERTHORNE!

LindaGray.jpg

How do you make a series centered on a candy empire even tastier? By adding DALLAS star Linda Gray (ex-Priscilla, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) to the mix!

When WINTERTHORNE, the new Web series from DEVANITY creator Michael Caruso, begins production next month, Gray -- best known as DALLAS' liquor-lovin' Sue Ellen Ewing -- will step into the role of matriarch Joanna Winterthorne.

"Linda has a warmth and strength that embodies Joanna," says Caruso, adding that he "wrote this part specifically for her. It's always an honor when you write for a specific actor and they see themselves in the part. This is a moment I will never forget as a producer!"

Martha Madison (ex-Belle, DAYS OF OUR LIVES), who'll play Joanna's daughter, Miranda, admits to being excited about working with the iconic star. "I have so many special memories of watching DALLAS with my own mother," Madison says, "so having Linda play my mother now feels like a full-circle moment!"

WINTERTHORNE promises to flip traditional serialized storytelling on its head by focusing on a female-centric empire in which the men play supporting roles. As well as the aforementioned cast, the sudser also features Gordon Thompson (DYNASTY) and Josh Thrower (90210), with more casting expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Victoria Rowell Speaks Out!

Rowell.jpg

Soaps In Depth was present this morning when former THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS star Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) held a press conference in New York City to discuss her lawsuit against CBS and Sony.

"This is a profound moment for me," the actress shared, "as an African-American woman who wishes to continue to live the American dream. I've always advocated for myself, and was taught to do so after 18 years in foster care. And I advocate for others, and was taught to do so. So this is not about me. This is about myself and the many, many other African-Americans who have been denied the right to perform in front of and behind the camera. Specifically on Y&R."

In her suit, Rowell claims that CBS and Sony have refused to rehire her in retaliation for her being outspoken about the lack of diversity in the daytime community, and particularly on her former show, the top-rated daytime drama. "It is an incestuous industry, and it has retaliated against me," the actress told In Depth at this morning's conference.

We will have more on Rowell's case in an upcoming issue. In the meantime, we want to hear your thoughts on her claim, so please comment below!

Y&R Star Sues CBS And Sony!

Victoria_Rowell02318.jpg

The daytime drama at THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS isn't just in front of the cameras, it's also behind the scenes! According to Daytime Confidential, Victoria Rowell (ex-Dru) is suing both CBS and Sony! The suit alleges that she was not rehired at Y&R in retaliation for her public and private complaints regarding the lack of diversity at Y&R both in front of and behind the camera.

Rowell claims that she reluctantly exited the soap in 2007 after years of racial discrimination described in the complaint. She also claims that since 2010, she has tried to return to Y&R or sister soap THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL but been denied. We will continue following this story and bring you any updates, but in the meantime, sound off with your own views on this lawsuit in the comments!

UPDATE: A CBS spokesperson tells Soaps In Depth: "We were disappointed to learn that, after leaving the cast of "The Young and the Restless" on her own initiative, Ms. Rowell has attempted to rewrite that history through lawyers' letters and a lawsuit that has no merit. We harbor no ill will toward Ms. Rowell, but we will vigorously defend this case."

Ridge & Brooke: Is It Really Over?

RidgeBrooke.jpg

Nobody can say that THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Brooke didn't try her best! Donning a barely-there outfit, she tried luring Ridge down to the pool for a little fun and, when he nixed that idea, made it clear that she wanted him back! Ridge, however, made it clear he had feelings for Caroline. Skeptical, Brooke insisted that to her, "this looks like a midlife crisis!" Ridge, however, placed Brooke firmly in the friend zone before dashing off to meet Caroline and reaffirming his commitment to her.

But is this really the end for Brooke and Ridge, or were Donna and Pam right to warn Caroline that the much-married duo always wind up reuniting? Should Brooke fight for Ridge, try and steal Bill away from Katie, find a new man... or maybe try flying solo for a while?

Y&R' Collins Is Cooking!

CollinsHomeFamily.jpg

Jessica Collins (Avery, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) drops by the Hallmark Channel's HOME & FAMILY show today to chat with hosts Cristina Ferrare and Mark Steines about Avery's upcoming storyline and do a cooking segment featuring her famous Crème Brûlée French Toast!

"I love 'make ahead' dishes, which this is," Collins tells Soaps In Depth. "This is one of the easiest things to make because if you can mix things in a bowl you can make it. It's something my mother and aunt would make. It's great for kids because you can make it the night before.

"It's a hobby that turned into a passion that kind of turned into a second career for me," adds Collins, who graduated from the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu cooking school in 2009 and has a Web site dedicated to her culinary creations. "My blog (JessicaCollins.com) is all about making cooking accessible. It's for first-time cooks — beginners, college kids. I sometimes cook a lot fancier in my real-life, but I also use those recipes, too. I don't have a lot of time to plan and make something amazing. My blog is built much more for my lifestyle — I'll come home, put a chicken in the oven, take a bath while it's cooking and then getting out, eating my chicken and watching Y&R with a glass of wine!"

HOME & FAMILY airs on the Hallmark Channel at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT and 9:00 a.m. Central Time. Check out the recipe for Collins' French toast — and many other tasty dishes — at JessicaCollins.com.

Y&R's Hartley Moonlights With MISTRESSES!

Justin_Hartley28953.jpg

If you're enjoying Justin Hartley as Adam on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, you'll be able to see even more of him when he returns for the season premiere of MISTRESSES, where he plays the recurring role of Scott.

Hartley will appear in the season premiere, which will resolve last season's cliffhanger where Joss left Scott at the altar, and is scheduled to appear in at least one additional show during the 13-episode season. The ABC primetime sudser is set to return this summer, and we'll let you know an airdate as soon as we know one.

A rep for Y&R assures fans that this moonlighting will not affect Hartley's screentime as Adam, so have no fear — the actor's not going anywhere!

B&B Star On The Mend

LinseyGodfrey.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Linsey Godfrey (Caroline) was struck by a car in West Los Angeles yesterday, February 2. Thankfully, the actress is expected to make a full recovery.

"Her ankles are banged up and she's had surgery on one foot," reports her manager, Theo Swerissen. "But the doctor says everything is looking pretty good."

It's still too soon to tell how quickly Godfrey will be back on her feet (literally!), but she is expected to be released from the hospital soon. She's in good spirits and ready to go home, so hopefully she'll be back at work before you know it!

"Absolutely," confirms Swerissen. "That's her passion. She loves working, so I think she'll be back on the show sooner than we are even guessing!"

A rep for B&B has said that they have already rearranged their taping schedule to accommodate Godfrey's condition, and will wait until more details on her progress before making any major decisions like perhaps sending Caroline to the Paris office for a stretch or temporarily recasting the role.

Our best wishes go out to Godfrey for a speedy recovery! Get well soon!
