“The Walk of Fame Selection Committee is thrilled to announce our newest honorees to the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” said Vin Di Bona, Chair of the Walk of Fame Selection Committee. “We feel that we have selected a great group of talent that will appeal to the tastes of many fans around the world.”
Longoria’s guest appearances on 90210 and GENERAL HOSPITAL led to her big break on Y&R. After her two-year stint on the soap, she went on to find primetime success in DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. More recently, Longoria has stepped behind the camera to produce Lifetime’s DEVIOUS MAIDS and produced and starred in TELENOVELA on NBC.
Corday is the son of Ted Corday, the co-creator of DAYS, and became executive producer of the soap in 1986, earning 16 Daytime Emmy Award nominations over the years. He is also CEO of Corday Productions, Inc., which owns a percentage of Y&R.
Congratulations to both Longoria and Corday, and as soon as their Walk of Fame ceremonies are scheduled, we’ll be sure to let you know!
