Days Diva Nadia Bjorlin's Boyfriend Joins Passions

Today's Passions-palooza isn't over yet. Here's one more tasty casting scooplet for ya!

Remember that I told you way back in March that Passions was seeking an actor to play a new love interest for Theresa (Lindsay Hartley)?

Well, it looks like they found their man. James Stevenson has just been cast in the contract role of Jared Casey, "a handsome newcomer to Harmony who will sweep Theresa off her feet." He first airs on July 21.

Stevenson is best known from UPN's short-lived series Sex, Love & Secrets. By the way, this TVGuide.com reporter was first to reveal that Stevenson was dating his Sex costar Nadia Bjorlin (ex-Chloe, Days of our Lives). Bjorlin had previously dated Bruce Willis. In my opinion at the time, James was definitely a step up!

Pregnant Passions Star Recast

Heads up, Passions fans!

As McKenzie Westmore herself predicted, Passions will temporarily recast her character, Sheridan, while she is away on maternity leave. FYI, Westmore's three-month break began two weeks ago. The very pregnant actress hasn't given birth to son Maddox yet, but the baby boy is expected to arrive anytime now!

Meanwhile, Kam Heskin will begin filling in as Sheridan on July 5. Longtime NBC soap fans will remember Heskin from her Sunset Beach stint as Caitlin Deschanel from 1998 to 1999.

Restless Hussy Joins Bold and Beautiful

Young and the Restless fans could never forget that blond, slinky soap siren, Jennifer Gareis. She played Sharon Newman's ex-best friend, Grace Turner, who was always lusting after her husband, Nick. So what's she up to now?

On Thursday's episode of SoapNet's Soap Talk, Gareis' manager, Michael Bruno, revealed that she is headed over to Y&R's sister sudser, The Bold and the Beautiful, to play the new Donna Logan!

Donna is the younger sister of B&B's long-suffering fashionista, Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang). Expect lots of drama with Brooke and their father, Stephen (Patrick Duffy). UPDATE: B&B's rep now tells me Gareis will begin taping in mid-June. She'll debut on the air as Donna on July 20.

FYI, the role of Donna was originated by Carrie Mitchum, who is a granddaughter of the late Robert Mitchum and the ex-wife of Casper Van Dien. Mitchum last appeared in 2004. So why isn't she reprising her role? Probably the same reason B&B chose Lesli Kay to play Felicia Forrester instead of the original Felicia, Colleen Dion. They wanted a younger, sexier actress with more of an edge. It sure worked in Kay's case, and I have no doubt Gareis will be faboo, too.

Be sure to come back and read TVGuide.com's exclusive Soaps Q&A with Jennifer Gareis on Tuesday, May 23!

Telenovela Fires Sean Young! Tatum O'Neal Replaces Her

The patented Daniel R. Coleridge soap-opera eyebrow was raised yesterday when I attended the MyNetwork TV telenovela session at the Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena.

Immediately after the session, a publicist eagerly shoved a fresh press release into my hands. The document announced the casting of Tatum O'Neal in Art of Betrayal. She'll play Blythe, a mother of two sons who takes long-awaited revenge 20 years after her husband dumped her for a rich lady.

Sound familiar? It should. In early May, this TVGuide.com reporter told you Sean Young had been cast as Blythe. In fact, I interviewed Young about it on the red carpet at the Daytime Emmys.

I sought an explanation of the actress swap from Paul Buccieri, Twentieth Television's president of programming. "As we move forward with the show, we decided to go in a different direction with the character," Buccieri told TVGuide.com. "We thought Tatum fit the bill more. Blythe is not just a villain you love to hate. She is this strong-willed woman who's very tough and very devilish, but you have to have sympathy for her, too."

So is he saying Sean Young isn't sympathetic? "We absolutely love Sean," Buccieri hedged. "We think she's wonderful. We had to make a hard call here. We did what we thought was best for the character."

The gossips at MyNetwork TV's cocktail party offered up a more specific explanation for Young's ouster. There was talk of a "difficult" actress who allegedly "threw a fit" during the taping of a MyNetwork TV promotional ad and locked herself in her trailer for six hours. Would a notorious Hollywood bad girl like Sean Young do such a thing? Hey, I'm just telling you what I heard, OK?

Meanwhile, I think Tatum O'Neal is a promising pick for Art of Betrayal. The Oscar winner recently has turned in heartbreaking performances as Denis Leary's alcoholic sister, Maggie, on FX's Rescue Me.

By the way, I am highly amused by my pal Matt Roush's dispatch about that MyNetwork TV TCA session. I should point out that I definitely don't share Matt's dim view of the startup net and its lineup of telenovelas. Anybody who can put divas like Fashion House's Morgan Fairchild and Bo Derek back on nighttime soaps is OK in my book. The trashier, the better!

B&B's Jack Wagner Is Tee'd Off!

Kudos to Jack Wagner (Nick, The Bold and the Beautiful) for winning the 17th Annual American Century Tahoe Celebrity Golf Championship.

It's Wagner's first win at this tournament; he's played in all 17 years of it. It's also the first time an amateur athlete has ever won. Score!

"Golf is a humbling game," Wagner says. "But this time around I found a form of humility that gave me the strength to win. The thanks goes to my son Peter, who caddied for me and who continuously reminded me to stay focused on the moment at hand, let go of what had just happened, and not worry about what might happen next. Peter was the angel carrying my bag."

Days of our Lives: Who Is the Gloved One?

No, kids, I wasn't talking about Michael Jackson in the headline.

I mean that mysterious troublemaker who has been skulking around Salem on Days of our Lives. He or she appears to be wearing rubber gloves like the ones I use to wash my dishes at home. So who is it?

TVGuide.com hears that Days planned to bring back Heather Lindell as loon-a-chick heiress Jan Spears. It would make sense if Jan were the Gloved One, since she is a scheming weirdo and bears grudges against Mimi and Sami.

However, the word is that Jan's return may not actually happen because the NBC soap is in the midst of creatively transitioning between outgoing head writer James E. Reilly and the new top scribe, Hogan Sheffer.

Here's the official word for now:

"We are thrilled that the gloved hand has piqued such interest with the viewers!" the Days spokesperson tells TVGuide.com. "All sorts of speculation is flying. Is it Stefano? Is it Tony? Jan is just the latest guess of the week. The fans will have to continue to watch the story unfold... and realize that we are on the verge of our new head writer's vision coming into focus."

Teen Heartthrob Returns to Daytime Soap Roots

Jesse McCartney by Keith MunyanPop star Jesse McCartney scored his big break on All My Children, where he played JR Chandler from 1998 to 2001. Five years later, McCartney is heading back to Pine Valley! No, the 19-year-old sigh guy is not reprising his old role. Thanks to the magic of SORAS - Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome - JR is now played by Jacob Young, who turns 27 next month.

Instead, McCartney will simply appear as himself to sing at Colby Chandler's sweet 16 party in September. Funnily enough, Colby (Ambyr Childers) is JR's recently SORAS-ed baby sister! McCartney will serenade the spoiled little rich girl with the title song off his new album, Right Where You Want Me, which goes on sale Sept. 19.

McCartney tapes his scenes today at the AMC set in New York City. They will air on Friday, Sept. 8 and Tuesday, Sept. 12.

"It's a cool homecoming for Jesse," the Summerland alum's rep tells TVGuide.com. "It's nice for him to be returning to daytime as a star and not just a guy in need of a gig!"

Oh, and just FYI, Colby's sweet 16 bash is actually a joint event with her new gal pal, Sydney (Taylor Gildersleeve). McCartney is Colby's teen singer of choice, while Sydney's pick is female songbird Jordan Pruitt, who will also perform on AMC. Both McCartney and Pruitt are Hollywood Records artists and fan favorites among the Radio Disney set.

By the way, that's why Colby and Sydney's sweet 16 will be held at the Pine Valley yacht club, rather than at ConFusion. Nobody in attendance would even be of legal age to party in an adult nightclub!

Suddenly, I feel really old.

The Young and the Restless Recasts Brad's Jewish Mom

Viewers of The Young and the Restless recently learned that Genoa City skirt-chaser Brad Carlton (Don Diamont) is really George Kaplan, the son of Rebecca Kaplan, an Italian-Jewish Holocaust survivor. The heroic Rebecca has dedicated her life to returning Nazi-looted art treasures to their rightful Jewish owners.

Y&R has just announced that the role of Rebecca, who's been played by The Diary of Anne Frank star Millie Perkins, is being recast.

Starting Sept. 19, Lorna Raver steps into Rebecca's shoes. She's guest-starred on many top TV series including Boston Legal, Desperate Housewives, ER, Gilmore Girls, Malcolm in the Middle and NYPD Blue.

Why the actress swap? "Although we were happy with Millie Perkins' performance and we respect her work, we decided to go in a different direction for the role of Rebecca," Y&R's head writer, Lynn Marie Latham, told TVGuide.com via e-mail.

General Hospital: Double Video Preview!

Kelly Monaco by Adam Larkey/ABCThis Friday, August 18, is a very emotional day for Kelly Monaco's character, Sam McCall, on ABC's General Hospital. And TVGuide.com has two juicy video preview clips to prove it!

In the first clip, Sam talks with mobster boyfriend Jason (Steve Burton) about her recent tryst with sexy stepdaddy Ric (Rick Hearst). Then Jason has a racy revelation of his own to share: After witnessing Sam's sin, he went and got busy with his ex-girlfriend, Liz (Rebecca Herbst)!

Click here to watch that uncomfortable conversation, kids.

In the second clip, Sam finds out that her long-lost mother, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn), has lung cancer. Poor Alexis. She has the big C and her husband hooked up with her daughter?! Sheesh. When our heroines suffer on the soaps, they really suffer, don't they?

Click here for a sneak peek at Alexis' tragic confession to Sam.

Enjoy the drama! By the way, thanks to all this sex in the afternoon, SOAPnet's same-day GH reruns are attracting more viewers than ever. I attribute this entirely to Steve Burton's recent, oh-so-rare shirtless scenes.

No, seriously! You wouldn't believe how much enthusiastic e-mail I'm getting (both here and on my MySpace page) from happy girls 'n gays who really wish Steve would bare his manly chest more often.

Enough with those boring gray T-shirts! I don't mean to advocate hunk-sploitation, but it's clear that Mr. Burton hits the gym religiously, so he needs to let his fans enjoy the rippling payoff.

Am I right or am I wrong? Discuss.

Eden Riegel Returns to All My Children on Contract!

Eden Riegel courtesy ABCFYI: Due to technical difficulties, our readers were unable to comment on this story when it was originally posted on Wednesday. You can now feel free to comment away on Eden's return!

Hallelujah! All your fervent prayers for the return of the patron saint of gay soap characters have been answered.

Daytime Emmy winner Eden Riegel is going back to All My Children as Bianca Montgomery, the iconic role she played from July 2000 to February 2005. Riegel has briefly revisited her ABC soap three times since Bianca relocated to Paris. However, she has just signed a longer-term contract with AMC. Riegel goes back to work on Sept. 12; she first airs on Oct. 11. Save the date!

"I am thrilled to have Eden return to All My Children," executive producer Julie Hanan Carruthers said in a statement. "She continues to be a cherished member of this talented ensemble. Bianca's presence enriches the canvas, and we all look forward to having her back home."

So do we! Riegel rang up TVGuide.com this morning to chatter about the great news. Here's our Q&A.

TVGuide.com: Welcome back. So this is a contract role, but you can't specify the length.

Eden Riegel: [Chuckles] Yeah, that's the party line.

TVGuide.com: But this comeback will last much longer than just a few weeks, right?

Riegel: Exactly. That's definitely the case.

TVGuide.com: How did AMC persuade you to return to daytime on a longer-term basis?

Riegel: They made me an offer that was impossible to refuse. It's an opportunity to come back to a place that I love and have new challenges as an actor. At the same time, I can still have my life in L.A. I'm going to be living a very bicoastal existence.

TVGuide.com: How many days a week will you tape at AMC?

Riegel: [My schedule] will be fluid. Now that I've caught the theater bug again, New York is also a good place to be to feed my craving. And yet I can do all that without having to say goodbye to people I have grown to love. It's worked out perfectly! They are very sensitive to the fact that there are other things in my life that are important besides the show. It's going to work it out that I can have it all. I'd be an idiot to turn it down!

TVGuide.com: You mentioned people you love in L.A. Is there someone special in your life?

Riegel: I definitely do, yes. I'm sure you'll meet him.

TVGuide.com: Cool. Your fans seem positively rabid in their desire to have Bianca back in Pine Valley!

Riegel: Totally! They are just about the most dedicated group of fans you can imagine. I don't think they're gonna let up. They haven't forgetten me yet! I think I owe them my job.

TVGuide.com: We both do, Eden. If people didn't love their soaps so much, neither of us would be employed.

Riegel: That's very true. When I did Thoroughly Modern Millie on stage in Boston, the fans told me they missed Bianca. Whenever I see them on the street, in the shop, on airplanes, everywhere, they tell me. I think Bianca is a good presence in Pine Valley. She's a peacemaker who brings people together. The rest of the town is so crazy!

TVGuide.com: How unique she is. Soaps are supposed to cater to "mainstream" America, but a gay woman is Pine Valley's most decent, moral citizen.

Riegel: Yes, it's funny that Bianca is supposedly on the fringes of society, and yet she's the one keeps others morally in check. During the baby-switch saga, [ABC Daytime chief] Brian Frons mentioned, "Isn't it amazing that the whole country

One Life to Live Hunk Fired

Dan Gauthier by Yolanda Perez/ABCSad news, soap fans. Per the official website of One Life to Live's Dan Gauthier (Kevin), the actor was fired from his ABC soap yesterday.

"As of August 23, 2006, Dan has been released from One Life to Live," the site says. "The reason stated to Dan was that the focus groups do not like the character of Kevin. They stated that they do not plan to recast the character, but Kevin will be written off as of November 2006."

An OLTL spokesperson had no comment on the Internet statement, but did confirm that Gauthier will last air in November.

My take? Kevin Buchanan has been a pretty unlikable bastard lately. He went sterile, became an alcoholic and turned downright surly. We didn't even feel all that sorry for him when Kelly (Heather Tom) slept with his son, Duke (Matthew Metzger), because Kevin had been so damn nasty to her!

So I'm not surprised to hear that ABC's focus groups dislike Kevin. Of course, it's certainly not Dan Gauthier's fault that his character has been written into a corner. OLTL has never quite known what to do with Viki's sons, Kevin and Joey. Both characters have been recast and reimagined many times
