NEW LIFE FOR ABC STAR

Glad tidings for the holidays! One Life to Live definitely intends to rouse Llanview D.A. Nora Hanen from her comatose slumber, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

Smith visited SoapNet's Soap Talk, where she jokingly questioned the timing of Nora's sudden brain aneurysm and subsequent coma, considering that her contract was set to expire in December. Fortunately, Smith has just re-signed with OLTL. Although ABC wouldn't get into specifics, the webmistress of Smith's official site posted this: "Our beautiful Hillary will be sticking around as Nora for at least another year. Yippee!" Keep reading for more cheery OLTL news...

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."
