THE BAY Returns Today!

TBS2LeeSara.jpg

The hit Web series THE BAY returns with new episodes starting today, Thursday, October 27! "This season will center more on the Garrett family," executive producer/creator Gregori Martin previews. As regular viewers of THE BAY know, Mary Beth Evans (Kayla, DAYS OF OUR LIVES; ex-Sierra, AS THE WORLD TURNS; ex-Katherine, GENERAL HOSPITAL) plays matriarch Sara Garrett, mother of Brian (Dylan Bruce, Chris, ATWT), Marly (Martha Madison, ex-Liz, GH; ex-Belle, DAYS), and Peter (Kristos Andrews). "This season is a little edgier and there's more glamour," reveals Martin. "The stories move a lot faster and our focus is on central characters."

There may be a wedding if Brian and Zoey (played by Taylor Stanley; Remy, ANOTHER WORLD) take the plunge. "Season 1 was about their engagement and now we're going to see whether or not the marriage will happen," Martin teases.

"Brian doesn't want to lose his fiancée," says Bruce, noting that his character's encounter with Isabella may come back to haunt him. "He didn't really do anything wrong. He was drugged, but he's still worried about losing Zoey."

New cast members this season include GH alums Jackie Zeman (ex-Bobbie) and Paul Satterfield (ex-Paul; ex-Spencer, ONE LIFE TO LIVE). Look for Zeman to play Sophia, the wife of Mayor Jack Madison (Nicolas Coster, Eduardo, ATWT; Robert, AW; Lionel, SANTA BARBARA), while Satterfield is replacing Joe Lando (ex-Jake, OLTL; Macauley, GUIDING LIGHT) as Lee. "Joe did two days with us," Martin shares. "We'll probably end up re-shooting his scenes for [our] TV [version], but they'll be on the Web."

"Sophia is a southern belle," Zeman shares. "I don't know exactly where we're going with her, but she's vivacious and fun. She loves life and her husband. Gregori's told me some people are not glad she's married to the mayor so maybe she's an opportunist? We'll see."

As for Lee, Satterfield notes that his alter ego and Sara have "been married three times. The third time was supposed to be the charm. Lee and Sara have a tumultuous relationship. Even though they're with different people they still have a strong connection. He's madly in love with her and always will be."

Zeman feels that Web soaps like THE BAY are the future of the genre. "People still love their soaps and their characters," she says.

Check out Season 2 of THE BAY beginning today at 3:15 p.m. EST at www.thebaytheseries.com. For a preview of the show's new opening sequence, click here.

Watch Out Kevin And Chloe: Here Comes Angelina!

DeGarmo.jpg

On THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, Kevin and Chloe's on-again/off-again romance will soon meet a new snag in the form of Angelo's daughter Angelina, played by Diana DeGarmo! The AMERICAN IDOL Season 3 runner-up debuts on Monday, October 31. Y&R executives spotted DeGarmo when she was performing in Hairspray at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this year. "The next thing I knew, I got a call asking me if I wanted to play a 'Jersey girl' on Y&R," says DeGarmo. "Well, duh! Who wouldn't?! I can't tell you how nice everyone [here] has been to me."

The role is recurring, but viewers definitely can expect Angelina to make her mark in Genoa City. "I'm your weekly pot-stirrer," she chuckles. "I'm definitely spicing things up! Angelina is getting into a bit of shenanigans and trouble along the way, just to make sure people are on their toes."

Watch for Angelina to take a liking to Kevin -- and that's going to make Gloria's son, understandably, a little nervous given Angelina's domineering dad. "Angelina may have a little bit of a crush on Kevin and she is not afraid to show it," the actress/singer previews.

Will Angelina show up in a colorful outfit since she arrives on Halloween? "I do have a costume, but the beauty of it is, at the same time, I don't have a costume," she hints. "I'm going to have to leave it at that!"

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS has temporarily replaced Jeanne Cooper as Katherine, reports Entertainment Weekly. The Emmy-winning actress, who turns 83 tomorrow, has to take time off from the show for medical reasons, and THE WALTONS star Michael Learned will fill in for a few weeks.

Learned is best known for her Emmy-winning turn on the beloved 1970s series -- which, interestingly, was created by Earl Hamner, the father of Y&R co-headwriter Scott Hamner -- but she's played in the daytime arena before, appearing as a judge on both ALL MY CHILDREN and ONE LIFE TO LIVE, and on GENERAL HOSPITAL last year as a cancer patient named Shirley. "Michael Learned is an accomplished actress and we are grateful that she is able to fill in for Jeanne Cooper for this short time," executive producer Maria Arena Bell says in a statement. "Jeanne is an integral part of our show and we look forward to her imminent return. We have great storyline coming up for Mrs. Chancellor."

Cooper is due to return to the Y&R set in November to resume taping. Learned's first day in front of the cameras is this week, and she'll first air on Thursday, November 10. Best wishes to Ms. Cooper on a speedy recovery!

Bell Returns To Y&R... With Longoria!?!

LauraleeEva.jpg

According to TV Guide, Lauralee Bell will be returning to THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS as Christine for a handful of episodes beginning on Wednesday, November 9... along with one-time Genoa City foe Eva Longoria! Well, sort of.

Bell's visit will feature lots of flashbacks to 2001-'03, when Longoria played loco Isabella Braña, a former prostitute who got herself knocked up by Christine's hubby, Paul. When baby Ricky wasn't enough to keep the P.I. by her side, Isabella faked her death and framed Chris for the murder, and then showed up one night and tried to drown her nemesis while Christine was soaking in the bathtub! While Isabella has been locked away in a mental hospital ever since the 2003 incident, Longoria left Y&R after being cast on a new primetime drama called DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES (in case you didn't know!).

So in case you were wondering why Isabella and Doug's son, Ricky, suddenly showed up in town to help Avery with Sharon's court case, the legal intern just may have an ulterior motive! A Y&R rep confirms that November 9 will be a must-see day!

Relive Some Classic Soap Scenes With New E-Book!

AdamsBook.jpg

Alina Adams has done it again! The New York Times best-selling author of AS THE WORLD TURNS and GUIDING LIGHT tie-ins Oakdale Confidential, The Man From Oakdale, and Guiding Light: Jonathan's Story, has just released her latest soap opera-themed tome, Soap Opera 451: A Time Capsule Of Daytime Drama's Greatest Moments. The enhanced E-book -- which can be obtained by downloading the free Kindle app from amazon.com to any Internet-enabled device -- will allow readers to have a truly interactive experience as they read about 45 of daytime drama's greatest moments as voted on by industry insiders and fans alike.

"People sent me by E-mail, Facebook, and Twitter their memories of the scenes that meant so much to them. Then I went to the actors, writers, and producers who had been part of those scenes to ask them how they came together," Adams explains of how the compilation came together.

In the book, readers can hear Linda Dano recount playing Felicia's intervention on ANOTHER WORLD, Eden Riegel relate her memories of Bianca declaring her sexuality on ALL MY CHILDREN, Michael Corbett regaling the tale of David Kimble's death on THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS by trash compactor and more... and then click on provided links provided to see video clips, leave comments, or find out what the actors are doing now. "You can read about the scene, watch the scene, and contact the actor and [share] your thoughts!" Adams enthuses. "In that way, the book will not become stagnant because all of those pages will be constantly updated."

Having spent 30 years watching all of the great serial dramas that have come and gone, as well as those still on the air, Adams promises that there will be a little of something included for every fan. "There's a lot of talk about where soaps went wrong and what can we do to fix them. Those are completely legitimate questions and things that people should be asking in order to save and reinvent the genre," maintains Adams, who has also penned a slew of mystery and romance novels. "But I also wanted to talk about what soaps did right and ask: what were these moments that really had people glued to their TV sets? Because sometimes we can learn a lot from [identifying] and emulating that."

Soap Opera 451 retails for $9.99 and is text-to-speech and lending enabled. You can purchase the book here, and find out more about the author at www.alinaadamsmedia.com. And to learn how her history as a soap fan led to a career in the industry, keep your eyes open for a Look Who's Watching feature in an upcoming issue of Soaps In Depth!

B&B Actress Reveals Breast Cancer Struggle!

114219_8380.jpg

THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Andrea Evans (Tawny) is now making her private battle with stage one breast cancer public. Diagnosed this past April following her annual mammogram, Evans tells Soaps In Depth that she initially didn't feel any abnormalities during her routine self-exam. "I missed it, and that frequently happens," she says, adding that she instantly hit the ground running with treatment.

"It was my choice to go through more aggressive treatment because I want the chances of recurrence to be null and non-existent. I had options presented to me that would have been the easier route. I chose the more difficult route because I don't want to go through this again," explains Evans, who returned to the set of ONE LIFE TO LIVE to reprise the role of Tina only a few weeks after completing chemotherapy and undergoing reconstructive surgery.

"It was very important for me to come forward now that the treatment is done. I'm back at work not only to let the fans know how important they are to me, but to have the fans see what they wanted -- Tina and Cord together again," smiles Evans. With a clean bill of health and literally a new lease on life, the beloved actress hopes that sharing her story will help other women to be proactive. "If you feel something, take care of it. Get your mammograms," insists Evans who for years served as the celebrity ambassador for City Of Hope's Breast Cancer Walk. "I stood on podiums all over the country telling women to get their mammograms, and that same advice saved my life!"

Editor's Note: October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
