Phyllis Is Back In August!

GinaTognoniGallery.jpg

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS fans (and Genoa City residents!) should mark Monday, August 11, on their calendars, because that's when Phyllis is coming back! Of course, she's been in a coma, so it'll probably take a little while before she's fighting fit again. And she'll look a little different as soap vet Gina Tognoni (Dinah, GUIDING LIGHT; Kelly, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) is taking over the role from Michelle Stafford (who is now playing Nina over on GENERAL HOSPITAL)!

Are you excited that Phyllis is waking up? What do you think she'll do first?

THE TALK Goes In Depth!

DSC_0293.jpg

Soaps In Depth's own Michael Maloney is a guest on today's episode of THE TALK! "We've been working at putting together a time when we could do a book giveaway with The Young and Restless Life of William J. Bell and THE TALK's studio audience," says Maloney, who authored the tome along with Bell's wife, Lee Phillip Bell. "And the Daytime Emmys seemed like a perfect time to do that. It was very cool to see [host] Julie Chen hold up the book and hear her say that everyone in the studio audience was getting a copy, a perfect example of CBS Daytime synergy."

The women of THE TALK ask Maloney to weigh in on who'll take home the gold this Sunday at the Daytime Emmys. "This is one of the hardest years to predict since there so many great performances," he says. "I'm predicting that there will be a tie in one category."

"Also, Swoosie Kurtz (MIKE & MOLLY; Ellie, AS THE WORLD TURNS) is a guest on the show," Maloney adds. "She recounts a funny story about her days as an actress just starting out in New York City and how she auditioned — but failed to land — a role on a soap opera where she would have played a corpse!"

Check out THE TALK today at 2:00 p.m EST on your local CBS station!

Daytime Emmy Awards Preview!

GrahnDiamontEmmyShow.jpg

Fans have lots of questions now that it's been announced that the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are going to be broadcast not on a network or cable outlet, but rather streamed via the Internet at www.daytimeemmys.net beginning at 5:00 p.m. PST on Sunday, June 22. Soaps In Depth spoke to David Michaels, Senior Executive Director, Daytime Emmy Awards for The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences, about what viewers can expect on the big day!

Soaps In Depth: Will the format be different? Will the show have a time limit?
David Michaels: As I understand it, the plan is for the show to go straight through — there will be no commercial breaks. We're treating it like a live show. It'll run for two hours.

In Depth: There tend to be fewer rules on the Internet about what people can do. Might we see more of a party atmosphere for this show?
Michaels: I'm not sure. It's the same setting room and people, the same party. I don't know if people will feel that they can take advantage of the "no-holds-barred" rules of the Internet or not.

Kathy Griffin To Host Daytime Emmys

KathyGriffin.jpg

The Daytime Emmys have a host! The National Academy Of Television Arts & Sciences announced today that the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be hosted by Emmy Award-winning comedian Kathy Griffin.

"I am beyond thrilled to be hosting what I'm told is the most important television event of the year," Griffin says. "Knowing that over 100 million people from every corner of the planet will be watching, I will try to keep my nerves at bay and deliver a great show. I can only hope that at the end of the evening, critics and fans alike will compare it to the experience they once had watching Neil Armstrong take man's first step on the moon. My only regret is knowing that this epic evening will distract millions of viewers from enjoying this year's World Cup. I apologize to FIFA."

Meet B&B's Ivy!

AshleighBrewerHeadshot.jpg

Former Australian soap star Ashleigh Brewer will debut on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL in July as Eric's nice, Ivy, the daughter of the designer's younger brother John, who has been living in Sydney. Soaps In Depth caught up with Brewer following her first few days of taping to find out how she's settling into the role.

"My first day at work was last Friday, and it was a whirlwind day," says the Queensland-born actress, whose previous acting role was a five-year stint on the Australian soap NEIGHBORS. "I was lucky in that a lot of my scenes were group scenes, so there were eight or nine of us on set. I got to meet a big handful of the B&B cast all at once."

Brewer admits her life has been a whirlwind since her casting was announced, and she's even been invited to join B&B's retinue in Monte Carlo at the annual International Television Festival in June. "I feel like I'm not even deserving of it yet, because I've only worked a few days — like I'm cheating the system," she jokes. "I've gotten all of these incredible perks before I even officially started airing. It's as if I'm dreaming all of this a little bit!"
