LYNDA HIRSCH ON SOAPS -- GOSSIP
J.R. Martinez (formerly Brot on "All My Children") has often said doing the soap changed his life.
Brot, a veteran of the Iraq War, was severely injured. Martinez had the same experience in real life. He wanted to get across the message that people can overcome any adversity thrown at them. On the show, he became friends with one of the producers, Diana Jones. The friends became lovers. Martinez won "Dancing With the Stars" last year. On May 2, the loving couple welcomed daughter Lauryn Annabelle. Martinez is said to be over-the-moon with his little girl.
Peter Reckell, who has played "Days of Our Lives" Brady on and off for 30 years, is not certain of his future with the show. Last year, he and several cast members took drastic pay cuts. Reckell has been asked to do the same this year. The actor is not certain he will do that. Perhaps the uncertainty about Reckell's contract negations was the reason Bo was in a coma for three weeks.
The Daytime Emmy nominations were slated to be announced on Friday, May 4. The date has been pushed back to Wednesday, May 9. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, which puts on the event, hopes to announce that it has found a television home for the awards.
At one time, the Daytime Emmys were a lavish event. Fashion parades marched down closed-off Manhattan streets. Major stars wanted to sit in the audience. In 2007, that changed. CBS had aired the event for two years. When that network cut two of its soaps, "Guiding Light" and "As the World Turns," it decided it did not make sense to keep broadcasting the show. ABC is down to one soap, "General Hospital." Ditto for NBC with "Days of Our Lives."
The CW had good numbers when it ran the awards gala in 2009. The hitch is this year's awards are slated to take place June 23 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. CW affiliates would not allow the network to cancel its regular programming for the night.
There is lots of tweeting going on about Nadia Bjorlin returning to "Days of our Lives" to play Chloe. The delightful actress says they must know something she does not, as the show has not contacted her. Not to worry, the actress is working on a yet-to-be-named show.
