GH's Duell Fell For It!


Timing is everything, as they say. The fact that April Fools' Day followed the announcement of the Daytime Emmy Award nominations had poor Chad Duell (Michael, GENERAL HOSPITAL) falling hook, line and sinker for a well-planned and executed prank!

"My brother is a producer on a radio station in Los Angeles," Duell sets up. "The main DJ called me and acted like he was the head of the Television Academy. He said there was an accounting error and I wasn't really nominated."

Apparently Duell didn't check his calendar to see that the date was April 1 because he bought it! "I was shocked," he says. "I said, 'Come on. Really? Alright. Wow, this is really going to be embarrassing to take me off the ballot.' Then they told me it was a joke. They did it really, really well." Duell laughed it off, but another family member took the prank much more seriously. "My mom got pretty angry at my brother," Duell grins. "The plan is to get them back!"

GH Fan Favorite Is Engaged!


Congratulations to Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda, GENERAL HOSPITAL), who has just announced her engagement! A few weeks after tweeting that she had some big personal news to share, the QUEENS OF DRAMA star has let the cat out of the bag!

"Ok!!! Here is my news. Finally!" she shared on Instagram. "I got a mani after exactly 1 year & we are planning our wedding." The actress wrote a follow-up on Twitter, revealing that her simple, yet elegant, gold band engagement ring once belonged to Audrey Hepburn, and that her fiancé (whom she's only called her "cowboy" on Twitter) got down on one knee to pop the question while dressed in his police uniform.

"Thank you for sharing in our excitement," gushed Marcil, adding that she and her beau plan to tie the knot next summer.

All Hail These Queens!


Move over, housewives, there are some new ladies on the block... and they are here to show you how to bring the drama! In one of the smartest programming moves we've seen in ages, Pop (formerly the TV Guide Network) will air the pilot of their sudsy new reality show, QUEENS OF DRAMA, at 10 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 26th, directly after this year's live telecast of the Daytime Emmy Awards.

So is QUEENS worth sticking around for? Only if you want to see some of your favorite former daytimers butting heads as they attempt to create a whole new soap. Do parts feel wildly scripted? Without doubt. But where else are you going to see Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda, GENERAL HOSPITAL) give an epic eyeroll to Donna Mills (ex-Madeline, GH; Abby, KNOTS LANDING) before declaring she feels "completely insulted" and walking out of a meeting?

And that's before DYNASTY's Joan Collins (Alexis) has even made her first appearance.

In short, this is the reality show soap fans have been waiting for. Following Sunday's premiere, QUEENS — which also stars Crystal Hunt (Stacy, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Lizzie, GUIDING LIGHT), Lindsay Hartley (Cara, ALL MY CHILDREN), Hunter Tylo (ex-Taylor, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) and Chrystee Pharris (Simone, PASSIONS — will air Wednesday nights at 8:00 p.m. ET beginning on April 29th.

Ellsworth's Killer Role


Kiko Ellsworth (Jamal) played a vampire on PORT CHARLES, and now he's taking a bite out of CRIMINAL MINDS via a plum guest role in the Wednesday, April 22, episode titled "Mr. Scratch."

"I'm playing a man named Daniel Karras who, through an unfortunate event, is accused of killing a female member of his family that he'd been very close to," Ellsworth relates. "Only he doesn't remember doing it, and he's deeply broken up over what has happened."

In the episode, Daniel will actually be one of three people (another is played by THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Thad Luckinbill [ex-J.T.]) implicated in the crime, and all of them claim to have been attacked by a clawed shadow monster! Can the Behavioral Analysis Unit figure out who — or what — might be controlling their minds?

For Ellsworth, the opportunity to be a part of this storyline was meaningful to him personally. For the last several years, he's been committed to the empowerment of women and bringing awareness to domestic violence via the charity Safe Passage, as well through teaching self-defense classes. "If I can prevent one man from hitting, raping, murdering, kidnapping or sex-trafficking a female," Ellsworth suggests, "Then hopefully the pain that my character goes through can prevent [what happens in the episode] from happening to one woman." Tune it at 9:00 p.m. EST on CBS to catch it!

GH Friday Recap: Nik Just Cannot Resist Hayden!


That Hayden is a real go-getter. When it comes to men, she's as subtle as a flying brick. In need of a little human contact, as they say, she looked up Nikolas' phone number on the Internet (under "L" for "lonely dark prince") and gave him a call. "I'm ravenous. How about coming over here and buttering my muffin?" She was not talking about brunch! Nikolas not only rejected her, he discouraged any kind of further contact. But she still didn't get the hint. "Is this because we're blackmailing each other?" she asked. Now there's something you only hear said on soap operas! He hung up, but that didn't slow her down. She wanted him, and she him pronto!

Hayden hopped on a boat, made her way to Spoon Island and made it clear in no uncertain terms that she meant business... monkey business! "I'm open to any and all positions, by the way," she said nonchalantly. She threatened to leave, but he grabbed her and pulled her into a passionate kiss. They both fumbled to get undressed right there in the Wyndemere parlor, only to metaphorically be doused with cold water ala hurricane Alexis. While Hayden slipped out, Alexis scurried in in search of the truth about Helena.

After gobbling down a mouthful of blueberry muffins, Sam answered a knock on Patrick's front door. It was Jake, there to deliver Sam's car and a trunkful of her belongings. He apologized for that little, old "human shield" incident a few months back, but she was already over it. Patrick slipped in and looked rather displeased at their connection but was too much a gentleman to say so. After helping Sam unload her car, Jake tossed her the keys, missing her by a mile and landing on the floor. More specifically, they landed on floor, under the sofa next to Jason's wedding ring!

Ric's attempt to woo Liz with flowers was working like a charm... until Pete showed up at her door! While Liz was getting gussied up for dinner, a nervous Ric ushered Pete to Liz's front porch. There, Pete threatens to expose Ric's role in bringing Jake's so-called wife to town if he doesn't pay him an additional ten grand.

Meanwhile, Spinelli told a thrilled Carly that he found some dirt on Hayden. Apparently, right before showing up in Port Charles, she came into a very large sum of money. Itching for more info on Jake's supposed wife, Carly handed Spinelli a skeleton key and told him to sneak into Hayden room and see what else he could find. Just as Spinelli approached, Pete and Hayden stepped out of her room. Spinelli hid around the corner, but he was close enough to hear them conspiring.

At the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia was both grateful and upset that Ned gave up his ELQ stock in exchange for Franco's silence about her baby daddy. After and in-and-out visit from Alexis, Ned admitted that the reason he went to such an extent to protect her was because he had feelings for her. "It's you. It's always been you," he told her as she wept. Promising that Franco would never get away with blackmailing them.

Monday on GH, Nikolas is in panic mode, Carly has suspicions about Ric and Valerie is quickly wearing out her welcome at the Falconeri abode! Don't forget: 3:00 ET and 2:00 PST/CT on ABC. Be there!
