Natalie Hall Music Video!!

Check out the music video by AMC's Colby Chandler, Natalie Hall!   The song appears on the upcoming movie Rising Stars soundtrack and Natalie stars in the movie.

Belated Congratulations!!

Belated congratulations go out to Connie Fletcher Staton (ex-Erin) and her husband Aaron Staton!!  The couple welcomed their first child, a boy, on June 29, named Beckett.  He already has a girlfriend too at his young age, little Lexington Bruening (daughter of Justin Bruening -Jamie and Alexa Havins ex-Babe) lives right down the street!!

Brittany Allen Not Set to Leave Just Yet

In an interesting turn of events, AMC has asked Brittany Allen (Marissa) to stay on for a little longer because they are having a hard time finding her replacement. So as of right now, there is no definitive final airdate for Brittany as Marissa. Finding a new Scott seemed easy, they just went to their arsenal of previous Scott's. So why not use that same tactic with Marissa? Yes, Brittany is the first Marissa, but she has a twin sister, a twin named Babe. How about tapping new mom Alexa Havins to come back to the show, this time as Marissa? I can see it! Can you?

Correction and Apologies all around

About a week or so ago, I reported about Keith Hamilton Cobb (ex-Noah) coming out and some disparaging remarks he made about a co-star.  In the referenced article, he seemed to be pointing at Sydney Penny (ex-Julia).  I've been informed by and extremely reliable source that the person Keith was talking about was in fact NOT Sydney.  I don't know who it was about it, but I'm just glad to know who it isn't!

Strange Things are Afoot at ABC Daytime

A few months ago, news came down that ABC was cutting the amount of original episodes that would be aired per year for the soaps.  Meaning, repeats would be shown more often then just the holidays.  That is now a reality.  SoapOperaNetwork reports that starting October 27, ABC Daytime will air the first day of repeats that is not an actual holiday.  The show, which originally aired on August 31, 2004, features Ryan declaring his love to a surprised Greenlee, Zach lashes out at Maria, Kendall gets drunk and vents about Ryan and Greenlee to Ethan and Zach gets ready to host a big party at the casino.  ABC claims that these episodes are being used to enhance current storylines and give viewers a chance to see episodes they loved in the past.   I will give them one thing, at least it's not an episode that aired two months ago.  If they are going to do this, I'd much rather see older episodes.

Sam Page Cast on Gossip Girl!!

Sam Page (ex-Trey) has been cast on the CW's hit show, Gossip Girl!!  Beginning Monday, October 11, he will be airing in multiple episodes as a professor from Columbia University who Serena shows some interest in.  The show airs Monday nights at 9:00 pm on CW.  Hmmm, isn't it time for Trey to get out of jail?

New Role for Exiting Mayfield!!

Exiting AMC star, Adam Mayfield (Scott) has already landed his next gig!  Adam will be starring in the independent movie, The Preacher's Daughter, as the love interest of Andrea Bowen's (Desperate Housewives) character, Hannah.  In the film, after 4 years away, Hannah must return to her home to face her troubled past as the daughter of a very strict religious minister.  It's currently being filmed in Texas and will be released in 2011.
