Soap Hub Weekly News Wrap: Shocking Returns And Controversial Exits

Soap Hub Weekly News Wrap: Icon Sighting, New Additions & The Dark Side

A GH villain returns, a DAYS favorite doesn’t, and a pair of CBS stars land new gigs. Here’s everything you missed in the daytime world (with links), in the Soap Hub soap opera news wrap.

She’s Back
Evil Helena Cassadine has long been dead and buried on GH. So, how exactly is actress Constance Towers and her loathsome alter ego returning to the ABC soap? Not dead? Not buried? A dream that explains Drew Cain? We shall see…

She’s Not
Louise Sorel spoke out about being invited back to Days of Our Lives for another run as Vivian Alamain — and why she won’t be filling the deliciously wicked character’s shoes this time around.

He Could Be
Christopher Sean’s animated series, Star Wars Resistance, is wrapping after its second season. Does that mean he could be returning to DAYS as Paul Narita and shake up the Will/Sonny coupling? Many fans hope so.

Ratings Rock
The Bold and the Beautiful’s baby drama reveal had viewers tune in in droves, and it led the CBS soap to a major rating coup. Yes, BB made history with its numbers thanks to an adorable little girl.

“Drew” Story
General Hospital fans won’t be the only ones missing Billy Miller as Drew Cain. The actor’s co-star and good friend Kelly Monaco (Sam) took to Twitter to speak out on the subject. However, she also left us all hanging. See what she had to say.

New Gigs
Loren Lott exited The Young and the Restless as Devon’s (Bryton James) sister Ana, last month, but she’ll be back on screen soon. The actress shared exciting news about an upcoming primetime gig.

Speaking of new gigs, Courtney Hope, who plays Sally Spectra on The Bold and the Beautiful, has a brand new one, too. And here’s a hint: it’s in the same studio where she films her soap job.

Emmy Investigation
The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences released an internal report, following irregularities that occurred during last year’s Daytime Emmys. Be sure to check it out.

Sharing the Love
Victoria Konefal (Ciara, DAYS) is all about positive vibes. The actress shared an inspirational message with her fans, along with a cool photo, while visiting the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Asking for Prayers
Adrienne Frantz, best known to soap fans as Amber on YR and BB, updated fans on her ailing father’s health crisis — and implored them to pray for him. It’s been a rough few weeks for her family.

Snapshots and Birthdays
Check out the latest selfies taken by your favorite daytime stars. Plus, two lovely ladies are celebrating birthdays: Kathleen Gati (Liesl, GH) and Courtney Hope (Sally, BB).
