    THE FOSTERS Returns!

    (abc.soapsindepth.com) The critically-acclaimed series, THE FOSTERS, which stars Teri Polo and Sherri Saum (Keri, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Vanessa, SUNSET BEACH), returns tonight, Monday, January 19, on ABC Family at 8 p.m. ET with its winter premiere. The show is executive produced by Joanna Johnson (Karen; ex-Caroline, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), who promises that the story points introduced in the premiere and in last December's Christmas special will continue to play out as the rest of the season unfolds.

    "Callie's going to be spending a lot of time with her [birth father] Robert Quinn (played by AS THE WORLD TURNS' Kerr Smith, Ryder). She'll start to develop a relationship with him [which] could be confusing to her," Johnson says. "We're also going to [continue to] explore the friendship between Jude and Connor."

    Later in the season, viewers will see guest stars including THE VIEW's Rosie O'Donnell (Naomi, ALL MY CHILDREN) and Patrick Duffy (ex-Stephen, B&B; Bobby, DALLAS). "Last season, Girls United [which Rosie's character, Rita, ran] burned down so she's without a home to bring girls to," Johnson notes. "We love having Rosie on our show. She's such a dynamic, warm person. Patrick's going to be playing Robert's father. We've alluded to the dynamic [with] Robert's father having something to do with him leaving Callie's mother. Callie's going to meet her biological grandfather and it'll be interesting."

    Johnson says she grew to admire Duffy's talent when he was doing a scene on B&B as Katie's dad. "I was mesmerized," the actress/producer recalls. "He just nailed it one take. He was so good I forgot I was in the scene!" It'll take a while for Duffy to pop up on the show, but Johnson is hoping he returns for future episodes. "We definitely want to bring him back!"

    In anticipation of B&B’s 7,000th episode, airing on Friday, January 23, the creative forces at the show put together a unique, time-lapse video of what really goes into creating the Bradley P. Bell Stage 31 at CBS Television City in Los Angeles, CA, for a "typical" production day at BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL. Enjoy! #Bold7000 #BoldandBeautiful

    Mackenzie Mauzy on Forever

    “Look Before You Leap” – After Henry pegs the case of a would-be bridge jumper as a homicide while the police label it a suicide, he and Jo go on a rogue investigation for proof. Meanwhile, Henry’s anonymous caller surfaces again. Apparently, he has been tracking him for years. A letter on antique stationary might provide Henry a fascinating clue about the caller, and he enlists Abe’s help in tracing the note’s history to a foreign locale. Revealing flashbacks unveil the beginning of Henry’s great love affair with his soon-to-be wife, Abigail, on “Forever,” TUESDAY, JANUARY 20 (10:00-11:00 p.m., PT) on the ABC Television Network.

    Editor’s Note: This episode of “Forever” will be ONLY be airing on the WEST COAST.

    “Look Before You Leap” is written by Matt Miller and directed by Sam Hill.

    The History and Influence of Soap Operas

    (Listen) Earlier today, Julianne Moore got an Oscar nomination for "Still Alice." She is by far the betting favorite to win the best actress award. But you may remember her better as Franny Hughes Crawford on "As The World Turns." And four or five years before Ellen said "I'm gay," Bill Douglas came out as a gay teenager on One Life to Live. That character was played by Ryan Philippe. In fact, Leo DiCaprio, Maria Tomei, Tommy Lee Jones, Parker Posey, Kevin Bacon, Meg Ryan, they all worked on soaps before they moved on.

    Now there are only four soap operas left – drawn out, dramatic stories that used to be sponsored by soap manufacturers, and now are struggling to maintain relevance to house wives who have a lot more options in the middle of the day. We'll talk about this slice of Americana with those in the industry, and a professor who co-directs “Project Daytime.”

    GUESTS:

    Barbara Irwin - Professor of Communication Studies at Canisius College, co-director of Project Daytime
    Ken Barnett - Actor
    Mara Levinsky - Senior Editor at Soap Opera Digest
    Ron Carlivati - Head writer for General Hospital

    B&B’S SAINT-VICTOR PENS EPISODE

    B&B’s Lawrence Saint-Victor (Carter) will add scriptwriter to his resumé when the first episode he penned for B&B airs on Friday, January 16.

    “It’s common for actors to go into Brad’s [Bell, executive producer/head writer] office and talk about where their characters are going, and during one of those meetings, Brad asked if I ever wanted to write an episode," the actor/scribe tells Digest. “The episode deals with the aftermath of what has been seen: Maya follows up with Carter about their last conversation regarding Rick. That will be interesting [laughs]! We also see Caroline and Ridge contemplate if they’re ready to move forward together and Maya’s baby sister, Nicole [Reign Edwards], makes her introduction. It was fun, but it was a little scary, too!”

    Saint-Victor’s episode must have been a hit with producers — he has another airing in February. Look for more from the actor in an upcoming issue of Digest.

    Is Kristen Alderson B&B's New Hope?

    After Kristen Alderson dropped the bomb that she was leaving the role of GENERAL HOSPITAL's Kiki, rumors started flying fast and furious that the Emmy winner was headed over to THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL to assume the role of Hope, recently vacated by Kim Matula.

    However, it turns out that was just wishful thinking on the part of fans, as a spokesperson for B&B confirms to Soaps In Depth that the rumor is untrue. "We are not recasting Hope," they report, "and we have not hired Kristen Alderson."

    Do you think Alderson would have been a good fit for Hope?

    Gina Rodriguez Gets Emotional Talking About Her Sister: 'She's My Support System'

    When Gina Rodriguez won the Golden Globe for best actress in a TV show, comedy or musical, for the CW's Jane the Virgin, no one was more excited than her sister.

    During Sunday's show, the camera flashed to Rodriguez's sobbing sibling, Ivelisse Simon, as the young star accepted the prize for starring in a dramedy that just premiered this fall.

    Earlier, on the red carpet, Gina told PEOPLE about having her sister there during the big night.

    "My sister has been my support system since I was a little kid," Rodriguez said. "She's believed in me and told me to go after my dreams and to never give up, and so for that I am forever grateful. Not to mention she also helped me pay for college and made sure that I got a good education."

    "For me to have her here with me means the world," she continued, tearing up. "I have my parents here with me with my other sister, and so for that I am so grateful."

    Back in the fall, Rodriguez opened up to PEOPLE about what her family makes of her career.

    "My parents are not in the industry," Rodriguez explained. "My older sister is an investment banker and my middle sister is a doctor, and they lead very different lives than myself. I think they are kind of blown away.

    "Recently it's gotten pretty real for them because they see the billboards and my sister in Chicago has seen them. They say that they always believed it but, come on, we were all a little afraid. I think everyone is kind of in shock still. It's crazy because if you make it ... making it means different things to everyone, but if someone is successful, then it makes other people thing it could be possible."

    Ivelisse's emotional reaction wasn't limited to just inside the show. After her win, Rodriguez also brought her sister to the press room, where they shed tears of joy in front of reporters. The actress also had inspiring words when talking about winning the award as a woman of color.

    "First and foremost the nomination alone was a win for me because it allowed our culture, it allowed Latinas to see themselves in a beautiful light," she said. "It allowed them to see ourselves where we all desired to be invited to the same party.

    "If we can create an effect that shows Latinos like the investment bankers, doctors, lawyers that existed in my own home I think that will change the way young girls and boys look at themselves.

    "I think that’s needed, especially now where we have dealt with Eric Garner and Michael Brown, where we are dealing with a society that is diverse, that is so beautiful and human, we all need to remember that we all have the same stories and see them as such."

    Gina Rodriguez gets a landmark win for 'Jane the Virgin'

    Gina Rodriguez pulls off a major win for "Jane the Virgin" and The CW on Sunday (Jan. 11) when she took home the trophy for Best Actress in a TV Series Comedy at the 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards.

    It marks the first time that an actress from The CW has won a Golden Globe. Rodriguez was honored to represent both the network and the Latino community as she accepts her award.

    "This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes," she says. "My father used to tell me to say every morning 'Today is going to be a great today. I can and I will.' Well Dad, today is a great day. I can, and I did."

    After accepting the award Rodriguez talks more about what the means for the Latino community to Golden Globes press room -- emphasizing that her win so much especially at a time when race is such a big part of the cultural conversation.

    "We change our perception of ourselves by the way art has created such a ripple effect. If we can create an effect that shows latinos like the investment bankers, the doctors and the lawyers that exist in my own home, then I think that will change the way that young girls and young boys look at themselves," Rodriguez says. "Especially now at a time when we have dealt with Eric Garner and Michael Brown --when we are dealing with a society is that is so diverse, so beautiful and so human. We need to recognize that we have the same stories and see them as such."

    On being the first win for a CW actress, Rodriguez only had positive things to say about the network and the critics that have supported "Jane."

    "The critics have been so opening and welcoming and loving. People have said to me, 'That's a first' and I've only experienced that. So I only know the critics as that and I thank them for that because they are what put our show on the map," she says. "It's awesome for The CW. The CW has given me a family. They've let me fly and I hope to do everything in my power to repay them for that."

    Hallmark Channel announced yesterday that when the second season of their original series, WHEN CALLS THE HEART, returns in April, soap vets Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Nick, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) and Kristina Wagner (Felicia, GH) will join the cast as regulars!

    Jeff Tracta delivers celebrity impressions at Atlantic City's Borgata

    (silive.com) (Video) STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Former soap opera heartthrob Jeff Tracta is perhaps better known as Thorne Forrester from CBS's "Bold and the Beautiful."

    Or Danny Zuko from Broadway's "Grease."

    Or your friendly Staten Island Advance delivery boy from the '70s, a profession which introduced him to the first characters of his decades-long entertainment career.

    But he could really be anyone these days with the act he's touring. (And not just because he changed the spelling of his last name from "Trachta.")

    See, the Staten Island native is appearing Friday, Jan. 9, and Saturday, Jan. 10, at the Borgata Hotel Casino in Atlantic City this weekend with his impressions show, in which he uncannily mimics celebrities and characters in front of a huge television screen featuring those characters.

    Tracta channels everyone from pop stars like Lady Gaga to old timey cartoons like Elmer Fudd, plus a pretty accurate Hootie and the Blowfish impression. Tickets are $35 to $60 at the box office.

    The impressions aren't just his latest act — they were his original act.

    As a boy growing up in Eltingville and delivering the Staten Island Advance, he would impersonate family members, friends and — yes, faithful subscribers and neighbors, too.

    At one point during a show in Vegas, Tracta was telling his audience about his upbringing in Staten Island when a man in the audience got up and shouted his address at the entertainer, adding that Tracta was his paperboy many years ago. Tracta brought him on stage to relive some of the memories.

    After going through some of Staten Island's public schools and serving as an alter boy at Holy Child Church, Tracta attended St. John's University with a major in psychology.

    He moved to Los Angeles and was discovered at at a senior center, launching his acting career. He landed a small part on the soap "One Life to Live," then "Loving."

    In 1989, Tracta landed his most recognizable role yet as Thorne Forrester in the "The Bold and the Beautiful."

    After eight years of starring in "The Bold and the Beautiful," Tracta left the show and made his Broadway debut starring as Danny Zuko in Tommy Tune's revival of "Grease" at the Eugene O'Neill Theater.

    Still, his unusual talent for impressions was always in the back of his mind. Now, at 54, Tracta said he enjoys doing the show because it's his own creation.

    "I loved the live experience of being in front of an audience and it was a wonderful thing, but when I decided to be in my own show, that led to me doing impressions."

    B&B Alum Engaged!

    SABATO SHOW RENEWED

The series will have an order of 150 episodes per season. In an interview with Digest to promote the September 2014 premiere, the actor explained, “I am not just coming in and hosting. I actually get involved in the demolition, building, painting, electrical, concrete work, etc. My designers are local and I am learning a lot from them about stuff that I want to do to my own house. It is really a learning experience and I am passionate about it. I really can’t wait to keep going. I love it."

    HEARTBREAKING NEWS FOR SOAP ALUM

    Adrienne Frantz (ex-Amber, B&B/Y&R), who is married to Scott Bailey (ex-Sandy, GL), revealed on Facebook that she has miscarried for the second time. The actress posted, "There are no words for the pain. Losing one baby breaks your heart, losing 2 crushes a piece of your soul."

    JACQUELINE MACINNES WOOD BACK TO B&B!

    A B&B show rep confirms the buzz that Jacqueline MacInnes Wood is returning to the show as Steffy Forrester. The actress, who played the role from from 2008-13, was last seen in February, and will be back at the studio next week to tape scenes that will begin airing at the end of January. Unfortunately, at this point, Wood is only scheduled for a handful of episodes, but while she's not back on contract at the soap, she is recurring, and as such can appear at any time!

    Lorenzo Lamas -- Becomes Primary Parent of his Kids ... Shauna Sand Crushed

    Lorenzo Lamas won a big victory in his never-ending war with ex-wife Shauna Sand ... he effectively became the primary parent of their 3 daughters.

    A judge radically changed the joint custody arrangement Wednesday from 50/50 to the 3 girls living full-time with Lorenzo, while Shauna gets them every other weekend.

    The judge was swayed by declarations filed by the 3 girls -- ages 17, 15 and 13 -- all of whom said they desperately wanted to live with their dad because their mom constantly brought new boyfriends to live with them and verbally abused them, calling them c**** and bitches.

    The kids also said their mom rented out their bedrooms and 2 of them ended up sleeping on the sofa and the third slept alone in the guesthouse.

    Shauna was sobbing after the ruling came down, but the girls -- all of whom were at the courthouse -- were ecstatic.

    Senate Confirms Colleen Bell, Noah Mamet to Ambassadorships

    (variety.com) Two Los Angeles fundraisers — soap opera producer Colleen Bell and political consultant Noah Mamet — were confirmed by the Senate as ambassadors after a contentious nomination process.

    The Senate confirmed Mamet as ambassador to Argentina by a vote of 50-43, and Bell as Ambassador to Hungary by a vote of 52-42. The votes were along party lines.

    Their confirmations had been delayed after Republicans, led by Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), raised objections over their qualifications. McCain even wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal claiming that the sole criterion for their selection was their ability to raise money for President Obama’s re-election campaign. He singled out Mamet for admitting that he had not yet been to Argentina, and Bell, producer of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” for struggling to “define even one strategic interest in the U.S. relationship with Hungary.”

    But the practice of filling ambassadorships with political appointees is not new, particularly in countries that are not world hotspots. Democratic and Republican presidents have long filled their ranks with friends and campaign fundraisers. Mamet and Bell each raised more than $500,000 for Obama’s re-election campaign.

    Neither the lack of a foreign policy background nor the failure to visit the country have necessarily capsized an individual’s bid for an ambassadorship, as ambassadors are assisted by career diplomats.

    Charles Rivkin, former CEO of Wild Brain Media and the Jim Henson Co., was a bundler for President Obama in 2008 and went on to become ambassador to France, earning high marks from a State Department inspector general’s report.

    On the Senate floor on Tuesday, McCain again blasted the political appointments, but Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) defended them. “Just because someone is a producer of a popular television show, that doesn’t disqualify them,” Boxer said, according to Yahoo News. “She’s an intelligent woman. She knows how to be successful.”

    The nominations would have been in jeopardy had a vote been delayed with Senate control shifting to the GOP.

    Making A BOLD Move?

    Is Kelly Thiebaud jumping ship as GENERAL HOSPITAL's Britt to tackle the role of Steffy on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL?

    While ABC does not comment on actor contracts, sources tell Soaps In Depth that Thiebaud had opted not to sign a new deal with GH, and has been on recurring status with the soap until her character could ultimately be written out. Rumor has it that B&B swooped in and made the actress an offer she couldn't refuse!

    The long-in-the-can seventh installment of NBC’s The Celebrity Apprentice will debut on January 4 in the reality series’ previous time slot, Sunday 9-11 PM, before moving into its new berth, Monday 8-10 PM, filling in for The Voice while the singing competition is on winter hiatus. The network also officially revealed the celebrity cast of Season 7 that will join Donald Trump and his children Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric in the boardroom. It includes two-time World Series champion Johnny Damon; actor/comedian Gilbert Gottfried; Deadliest Catch star Sig Hansen, musician Kevin Jonas; actor Lorenzo Lamas (ex-Hector, B&B); NFL great Terrell Owens; talk show host Geraldo Rivera; actor Ian Ziering (ex-Cam, Guding Light); Gold Medal Olympic snowboarder Jamie Anderson; actress Vivica A.

    Season 7 also features the late Joan Rivers, winner of Season 2, who returned as advisor in two episodes.

    The Celebrity Apprentice is produced by United Artists Media Group, a joint venture among MGM, Mark Burnett, Roma Downey and Hearst Entertainment, in association with Trump Productions. Mark Burnett, Donald Trump, Page Feldman and Eric Van Wagenen are executive producers.

    'Queens of Drama' Docu-Series with Vanessa Marcil, Donna Mills and Hunter Tylo Expected to Air in 2015 on POP, Formerly TVGN

    (musictimes.com) Soap opera stars have been grabbing headlines for a multitude of reasons lately. First there was the firing of Michael Muhney from CBS's The Young and the Restless because of sexual harassment allegations, and then we learned that two popular soap stars were headed to reality television. Eileen Davidson and Lisa Rinna are currently filming scenes for The Real Housewives of Orange County, which is scheduled to air on Bravo early next year. It was only a matter of time before a reality series comprised of daytime stars would hit the air, and we have just learned that a new project has been given the green light: Queens of Drama on POP, formerly TVGN.

    Queens of Drama is a new docu-series which follows a group of former daytime and primetime soap stars as they work together in an attempt to produce a new primetime, serialized drama to star in. Vanessa Marcil, Hunter Tylo, Donna Mills and Lindsay Hartley and others have signed on to do the show. They will be required to work together both in front of and behind the cameras as they also develop, pitch and produce a steamy series. The goal for the ladies is to land a pilot deal by the end of Queens of Drama's season.

    The show will air on POP, a rebranded version of the TV Guide Network set to debut in 2015. Brad Schwartz, president of entertainment and media of POP, confirmed the addition of Queens of Drama to the lineup.

    He said, "We couldn't be more excited to announce our first wave of original programming that will launch POP to the world in the new year. Our slate is filled with fun, fan-driven content featuring big stars and rising talent, as well as an optimistic spirit that celebrates audience passion."

    New Bold & Beautiful Book

    Becoming Bold & Beautiful: 25 Years of Making the World's Most Popular Daytime Soap Opera

    Includes more than 200 photos of the cast and crew from the soap's 1987 inception to today. Go behind the scenes, on location and more!

    Foreword by The Core Four

    It was such a surprise for the four of us to realize how time has flown and how everything has changed (especially us), as we viewed the photos of the past twenty-five years. It seems like another lifetime ago when we first walked through the doors at CBS Television City to shoot our first episode of The Bold and the Beautiful. We will have filmed over six thousand episodes by the time this book goes to print. It's amazing!

    From the beginning, we have had that rare opportunity of collaboration with truly talented and creatively generous writers. The co-creators Bill and Lee Bell, and now their son Brad, allowed us to breathe life into the characters of Eric, Stephanie, Brooke, and Ridge. What a creative and fulfilling time this has been for us.

    Now we find ourselves a quarter of a century later, still going strong, still successful, even with the recent shifts in the worldwide television landscape. We like to think we have survived because we have a solid foundation. We know all the layers and complexities of the characters by heart, just as all of you do, having followed us since the beginning.

    We thought you might want to take the sentimental journey with us. We hope you'll enjoy a glimpse into our world backstage, seeing the work that enables us to make a show into "magic."

    We hope you will join us in reliving our lives and our characters all over again.

    Bon voyage!

    Susan Flannery, Katherine Kelly Lang, John McCook, and Ronn Moss

    Ronn Moss Gets Personal

    B&B favorite Ronn Moss (Ridge), who started out his career as a musician in the band Player, is now host of his own online show called "Ronn's Garage", which is currently available for viewing on his Web site www.ronnmoss.com. Fans get an inside look at the actor's home as he chats with some of his closest friends. "Come and hang out in my garage!" Moss explains on the site. "Ronn's Garage will be a place to see me interview artists, musicians, actors, models and people I find interesting to share with you. Each month I will give you sneak peak into my home and an up close and personal interview. So sit back, relax and visit me in my garage often." The first installment of Ronn's Garage features an interview with his pal Lorenzo Lamas (ex-Hector, B&B), who also shows off his cooking skills in the kitchen with Moss's wife and Cookin' Cajun author, Devin DeVasquez.

    B&B's Moss Is Working On A New CD!

    Baby, they're back! THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Ronn Moss (Ridge) and his band, Player, have a new deal with Frontier Records to release a new album later this year! It's been over a decade since Player last had a new CD out. But in the meantime, a three-song EP titled My Addiction is now available for digital download, featuring the songs "My Addiction," "Too Many Reasons," and a new recording of their 1978 hit "Baby Come Back."

    "It's been quite a while since our last record release. Feels great to finally be making new music," says Moss. "I'd say the "stuff of life" has played an integral part of influencing all non-musical activities the last several years. Personal endeavors, other work-related ventures, and just being downright lazy, have all played a part in why we haven't done this sooner than now. But in "now's" defense, sometimes one has to wait until "now" happens before you can actually be there."

    The My Addiction EP is available for download at iTunes. Player's new album is planned for a release in the second half of this year.
