Babies and Celebrations
Mishael Morgan, who just suffered a devastating pregnancy loss as Hilary Curtis on Y&R, announced happy baby news of her own. Is this her first child? And is she expecting a boy or a girl?
Speaking of Morgan, she and co-star Kristoff St. John (Neil) both had something special to celebrate last weekend.
Eric Martsolf (Brady, Days) became the latest actor at the center of a social media scam. His reaction when an imposter started soliciting funds from his devoted fans was priceless.

Soap Actor Convicted
A former soap extra, who appeared on Days, Y&R and the defunct All My Children, was convicted of an unspeakable crime.
