Genie Francis (ex Laura, General Hospital) on Hallmark's Home & FamilyTo continue on with Soapdom's holiday coverage, Daytime Emmy winner, Genie Francis (Laura, General Hospital) and her husband, actor/director Jonathan Frakes (STAR TREK: The Next Generation), sat down with Mark Steines and Cristina Ferrare on the back lot at Universal Studios to chat about Genie's antique shop and her love of antiquing.

Francis also shared a few memories of Christmas time at General Hospital and how glorious those days remain in her heart.


#Bayhem continues on the next installment of The Bay

Gregori J. Martin and Kristos AndrewsThe #Bayhem intensifies when Chapter 14 Part 2 of the Emmy-nominated The Bay streams today, Thursday, December 18th. Emotions run deep and tempers flare as Bay City residents continue to mourn the loss of one of their own. Special guest stars include Daytime icons A Martinez (Santa Barbara) and IIene Kristen (One Life to Live) who reprises the role of Liza Garrett.

Read with caution, Bay watchers. Contains scoopage!

Offering words of wisdom, Mackenzie Johnson (Lane Davies) shares a tender moment with daughter Vivian (Karrueche Tran). An impassioned Janice Ramos (Lilley Melgar) and her father demand answers about their missing loved one when Will Campbell (Derrell Whitt) arrives with alarming news.


Young and the Restless ~ 25 on top!

Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott, The Young and the Restless)Don't know about you, but I can't imagine doing anything consecutively for 25 years, let alone maintain the top spot consistently.

Well, my friends, The Young and the Restless has held the number one position in daytime drama since December 1988. That's 25 years and going strong.

What do you suppose makes the Young and the Restless must see daytime TV? Is it the production values? The story telling? The actors? The predicaments of the characters? Chemistry of the actors. Writing to the audience, not at them?


General Hospital and Toys for Tots ~ Sweet

Frank Valentini (EP, GH) with Hannah Nordberg (Josslyn, GH)During the week of December 15, ABC's daytime drama General Hospital participated in Disney | ABC's "Share the Joy" campaign with "Toys for Tots" by integrating the charity into their storyline for the holidays.

The segnent, which aired on Thursday, December 18th, shows Nurse Elizabeth Webber (REbecca Herbst) donating a toy in the "Toys  Tots" box.

GH also decided to take the intiative a step further by having the cast and crew donate toys to the "Marine Toys for Tots Foundation." GH Executive Producer Frank Valentini and cast presented the toys to the Marines yesterday (December,17th) at the GH studio in Los Angeles.



8 Days of Hanukkah, 8 notable Jewish folks in soaps

Hillary B. Smith (Nora, One Life to Live)With the holidays fast upon us, all Jewish soap fans are celebrating Hanukkah this week. Interestingly, and I am not sure why this is, but there are not many stories around Jewish families in soapdom.

Happy HanukkahWe have the big Horton family Christmas celebration every year on Days of our Lives, and Christmas parties at General Hospital and in the fashion world of The Bold and The Beautiful, not to mention some of the goings on in the Abbott and Chancellor households on The Young and the Restless over the years. But really not too much about the Jewish holidays.


It's not easy being a new prime time show

Scorpion one-sheetAs we near the end of 2014, many of the primetime shows from the 2014-2015 season have already met their fate.  Sitcoms like A to Z, Bad Judge and others, have already gotten their walking papers.They will air their initial 13 episode order, then it's buh bye.  

Manhattan Love Story, which I kind of liked actually, was the first show of the season to be cancelled, though its end was predicted even before the pilot aired.  It bit the dust on October 24th. 

Some of the hour-long shows, like The Flash (The CW), How to Get Away with Murder (ABC) and Scorpion (CBS), which have shown great promise, seem to be "safe," at least to air a full season. Personally, I couldn't be more delighted about the success of Scorpion, as I know the real Walter O'Brien!  And yes, he is utterly brilliant.  

But back to the business at hand...


Days of our Lives Galen Gering and the red comb

Days of our Lives Galen Gering (Rafe) with Soapdom's Mark Edward WilowsAs a writer, we sometimes write something out of the unusual. Well...I guess my time has come. It is about the big red plastic comb. Ok you're saying what? Did he lose it? No! Not yet.

Why does a big red plastic comb have importance? Well...because there is a story behind it, and the story involves Galen Gering (Rafe) of Days of our Lives.

It all began two years ago when Gering was in the Chicago land area for the Days 'Better Living' book signing. I covered the event. Now, I'm the type of guy that always likes to look my best. Not sure it always works, but I carry this big red comb in my pocket, by no means the average looking comb.


Days of our Lives Molly Burnett had no doubts on returning

Molly Burnett (Melanie, Days of our Lives) Photo (c) JPI/HowardWiseHer beauty, her charm, and her bubbly personality, not to mention how she lights up a room, Molly Burnett (Melanie, Days of our Lives) is back and she says the best is yet to come.

"Yes! The best is definitely yet to come. Keep watching," she jokingly said. "I really love what I do, and I do it for the fans. After all they are the people that are watching."

Fans of the show will remember Burnett from her four-year stint on the show, but now, after a two year absence, she is ready to take on Salem once again and is thrilled about being back.


Days of our Lives Jen Lilley and Eric Martsolf team up for Baby It's Cold Outside

Days of our Lives Eric Martsolf (Brady) and Jen Lilley (Theresa) Christmas single, Baby It's Cold Outside

By Mark Edward Wilows

While most of us decide what to do for the holidays, Jen Lilley (Theresa, Days of our Lives) did what she always wanted to do. Record a Christmas song. So she teamed with Eric Martsolf (Brady, Days of our Lives) and they have a hit on their shoulders with Baby it's Cold Outside (available now on iTunes). And what does the future hold for Lilley's singing career? Well...check out what she has to say about that and more...

Soapdom: How did this idea come about?

Jen Lilley: I've always dreamed of having a Christmas album, so one of my goals for 2014 was to record a Christmas single. I've now recorded three songs this year! (Two of them are Christmas tunes. The other Christmas tune is called "We're All Waitin' on You" and I will perform that live in Peekskill NY on Dec. 5 to raise money for wounded veterans at the Westchester All Stars Christmas concert. Find out more about this concert.
