PASSIONS CASTS CLASSIC GH STAR

In today's episode of Passions, that red-fingernailed mystery woman will be unmasked at last. Drumroll, please.... She is Alistair Crane's long-lost girlfriend, Rachel. Turns out he has needlessly blamed his daughter, Sheridan, for her demise all these years! On New Year's Eve, Rachel returns to wreak revenge on her belligerent billionaire ex.


Longtime soap-opera buffs will be tickled to see Sharon Wyatt in the role of Rachel. She and John Reilly (Alistair) were a popular supercouple as General Hospital's Tiffany Hill and Sean Donely in the '80s and '90s. Though their backstage reunion was probably warm and friendly, their on-screen face-off will be another story!

BOLD BRIT WON'T SPLIT


Speaking of exaggerations you may have read elsewhere, British actress Lesley-Anne Down (Jackie) has not quit The Bold and the Beautiful in a snit about her salary. In fact, she has just renewed her contract with the CBS sudser. "There is no truth to the rumor that she cleaned out her dressing room or that she is leaving B&B," the show's rep insists to TVGuide.com.

SOAP STAR CUTIE SEES THE LIGHT

Prudence Zdravkovic, the runner-up in SoapNet's reality casting call, I Wanna Be a Soap Star 2, has scored a small role on Guiding Light. Look for her to appear on Jan. 30 and 31 as shady lady Hannah Salen.


"Hannah owns a boutique called Bella and she's a very chic dresser," Pru tells TVGuide.com. "Lizzie Spaulding lies to her boyfriend, Coop, that she works for me. But Lizzie has really been getting money from her rich admirer, Quinn. I just cover for her because Quinn bribed me! So I'm not the most honest woman in Springfield."

While this GL gig isn't quite as plum as Alec Musser's ab-licious contract role on All My Children, it's a sweet start in soaps. "It would have been nice to have slid into AMC like Alec did," Pru concedes, "but everything happens for a reason. [Soap Star judge] Michael Bruno is managing me now, so that's a huge plus. I have more daytime doors opening up for auditions now."

GAY BASHING ON GH

General Hospital finally moves full steam ahead with Lucas' gay story line next week. In a heartbreaking twist, Luke Spencer's shy nephew — who recently came out to select peers — is the victim of gay-bashing.

"Lucas goes out to a bar with friends and the wrong guy overhears him discussing his sexual orientation," his 24-year-old portrayer, Ben Hogestyn, tells TVGuide.com. "The guy flirts with Lucas, so his friends get excited for him and leave them alone together."

Next thing you know, they're walking in the park — a place where very bad things happen to good people on GH. (Liz was once raped there.) "We're supposed to just go for a slice of pizza, but the guy assaults Lucas with a lead pipe," Hogestyn previews. "Later, his cousins, Georgie and Maxie, find Lucas in the bushes, all bloody and bruised." He refuses to go to General Hospital, though, because he has family working there — including his mom, Nurse Bobbie (Jackie Zeman). "Lucas would have to come out to them and he's not ready to do that. So he lays low for a day and then returns to the bar for payback."

A fight breaks out, of course. "Lucas is arrested and ends up coming out to the whole PCPD!" Hogestyn enthuses. "It's pretty wild. I'm happy to be part of such an important story."

FYI, Hogestyn and Lindze Letherman (Georgie) start appearing in PSAs on Jan. 18 urging viewers to stand up against homophobia and "be an ally and a friend" to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. A spokesman for GLAAD, which advised ABC on the PSAs, says: "We look forward to watching Lucas, Bobbie and those around them explore the coming-out process, the importance of straight allies, the complexity of romantic relationships and the impact of hate crimes."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AXED STAR SUES GH
Fired General Hospital star Kari Wuhrer (ex-Reese) has gone all Hunter Tylo on her former employers and filed a pregnancy-discrimination lawsuit. In dramatic court documents obtained by TMZ.com, Wuhrer alleges that "there is a viral pandemic of discriminatory conduct raging through ABC's daytime soaps. The vile underbelly of the Hollywood Machine encourages female actors to be as beautiful and slim as possible.... Even one whiff that an actress on an ABC daytime soap has conceived a child is enough to have her character killed off the show." She goes on to allege that Lesli Kay (Felicia, The Bold and the Beautiful) also lost her role as GH's Lois last year as a result of a pregnancy. Wuhrer is seeking damages "in excess of $1 million." GH was unavailable for comment.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Y&R'S KRISTOFF CRISIS
Here's the bad news: As his contract negotiations drag on, Kristoff St. John's status at The Young and the Restless remains in question. That's just wrong. Daytime's answer to Denzel has starred on the CBS sudser since 1991 and he needs to stay, OK? The better news: St. John has been nominated for yet another NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actor in a Daytime Drama Series, alongside Y&R's Bryton McClure (Devon) and Shemar Moore (ex-Malcolm); All My Children's Michael B. Jordan (Reggie); and The Bold and the Beautiful's Antonio Sabato Jr. (Dante). The nominees for Outstanding Actress are Passions' Marla Gibbs (Aunt Irma) and Tracey Ross (Eve) as well as Y&R's Christel Khalil (ex-Lily), Victoria Rowell (Drucilla) and Tonya Lee Williams (Olivia). The 37th Annual NAACP Image Awards air March 3 on Fox.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TY TRADES TALK FOR LAUGHS
Soap Talk cohost Ty Treadway may or may not join the cast of The Bold and the Beautiful, but he will definitely pop up on the ABC laugher Rodney. "I play John the exterminator," Ty tells TVGuide.com. "Rodney (Rodney Carrington) finds a condom in the house and he thinks his wife (Jennifer Aspen) is cheating on him with me! I have a scene where I'm busy taking care of some bees and Rodney has a fantasy sequence about her messing around with me. It was very fun!" Ty's episode, cheekily entitled "Where the Rubber Meets the Road," will air sometime this spring.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HARRISON FORD MEETS PC PRINCESS

Be sure to set your VCR or TiVo for that can't-miss episode, but first vote on this scandalous coupling in TVGuide.com's Soaps Poll.

"HELLO? IT'S YOUR EVIL TWIN CALLING.... "
Having tested the technological waters with Guiding Light's audio podcasts, CBS will now venture into developing original soap-opera content for cell phones, per Variety. Tentatively entitled Hey, It's Me, the first celly sudser — also known as a "mobisoap" — would run five to seven episodes a week, with each installment being three to five minutes long. Story arcs might last up to three months. Personally, I think my own cell-phone conversations are melodramatic enough, but I'm willing to give this a try.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VIEW TO A THRILL
