Monzon.jpg

At last! After months of being talked about but never before seen, GENERAL HOSPITAL viewers will finally get to see Delores Padilla's husband! Soaps In Depth has learned that actor/model Christian Monzon will debut in the role of Eddie Cabrera the week of April 16. Although Monzon is a newcomer to daytime, he's had a recurring role as DJ Zafon on SHAMELESS, and has guest starred on DOLLHOUSE, ENTOURAGE and CSI: NY. He's also the face behind two Dolce & Gabbana fragrance ad campaigns, and has appeared in music videos for Jennifer Lopez, Janet Jackson, Destiny's Child, Pink and Mariah Carey -- with whom he filmed some sexy scenes for "Don't Forget About Us" and dated for nearly a year. Muy caliente!

Kassie DePaiva Speaks Out!

Kassie4.jpg

When you want the truth, go to the source... which is what we should have done initially and belatedly did when an item we recently ran stirred up questions about the status of Kassie DePaiva and whether her popular ONE LIFE TO LIVE alter ego, Blair, might return to GENERAL HOSPITAL in the future. "It opened a hornet's nest within a corner of the soap world with my fans," shares the actress, adding that her followers would love nothing more than to see Blair move to Port Charles permanently!

Setting the record straight, DePaiva tells us that "my character was not invited to stay there, which I'm sure was based on story." Which isn't to say that somewhere down the line, that won't change. "We're not talking about Llanview anymore; we're talking about Port Charles. If there's not a place for Blair at GH, then there's not a place for Blair at GH. I, personally, have no say in it whatsoever." Should her phone ring, however, she'll happily answer! "Would I like to come back and play? Absolutely!" she says enthusiastically.

For more on her thoughts about Blair's place in the GH universe, pick up the next ABC issue of Soaps In Depth, on sale April 16!

Should Olivia Be Worried About Heather?

Mattson.jpg

Robin Mattson returns to GENERAL HOSPITAL on Monday, April 2, as crazy Heather Webber when Sam tracks down Jason's biological mother's cousin in the loony bin, where she's been ever since becoming obsessed with Luke and abducting Skye and Laura. "She was committed to Ferncliff, where she's been for the past six years. She's in there willingly," Mattson tells Soaps In Depth.

While Heather's reappearance on GH initially involves Jason, Sam and the Franco fiasco, they aren't the only ones to get sucked into her crazy world! Luke, Tracy, Steve and Olivia best watch their backs as well! "In her mind, everything she does is justifiable, whether it's out of her feelings for Luke or the motherly love she has for her son," Mattson shares. "She's just put them on such a pedestal that they can do no wrong. And there's no wrong she wouldn't do for them. That puts anybody close to them in a certain amount of danger."

In other words, Olivia may not be so willing to share Sunday gravy with Steve's Mommy Dearest anytime soon! "I'm sure I'm Olivia's worst nightmare!" Mattson says in character with a chuckle.

Wagner Dishes On Last Night's DANCING... And GH!

WagnerDANCING.jpg

Last night's DANCING WITH THE STARS was the second week of competition for Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, GENERAL HOSPITAL; ex-Nick, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL), and Soaps In Depth was there to watch him! "I think I over-danced a little this week," he shared with reporters on the press line following his performance with pro partner Anna Trebunskaya. "My kicks could have been sharper. When you've got someone like Anna to dance with you and you don't match it, it shows."

Trebunskaya felt her partner did just fine, even though judge Carrie Ann Inaba claimed that Wagner "over danced" his jive as well. "The one dance where you really should go full-out is the jive," Trebunskaya notes. "When you get a comment that you did too much... well, that's the one dance that you want to do too much on. I'd rather Jack do "too much" on the jive than not do enough."

Going all out on the jive did have a positive effect on Wagner's waistline, however! "They had to adjust my pants from [last] Tuesday... which is just fine! At 52 years old, I found an ab the other day in my stomach. I'm thrilled!" he joked.

The first DANCING elimination is tonight; next week, the remaining celebrities will share personal stories. "It's going to be a good one," Trebunskaya told In Depth. "It'll show a different side of Jack. I just keep praying we make it because next week will be pretty special."

As for where things stand with Wagner's soap career, the actor revealed to In Depth that there are currently no plans for him to return to B&B. "I'm prohibited from doing anything but dancing with [Anna] right now at all. Except maybe for going to the grocery store and feeding my kids!" And what about his rumored return to GH? "No Port Charles updates," he shared. "I'm actually under contract to ABC so if [GH] wants to call then they can call."

Catch GH's Preston On CMT!

PrestonShore.jpg

CMT -- the cable network formerly known as Country Music Television -- is jumping on the all-things-Jersey bandwagon with an original film airing this weekend... and Cynthia Preston (ex-Faith, GENERAL HOSPITAL) is going along for the ride! She's starring opposite comedian Pauly Shore in the comedy Whiskey Business, about a JERSEY SHORE-type guido who is forced to hide out in the country after being falsely accused of murder and quickly develops a knack for bootlegging moonshine.

Shore plays Nicky, the son of New Jersey's most powerful crime boss who would rather DJ and mix cocktails at the local club rather than follow in his father's footsteps. But when he goes on the run to escape the law after being framed for a murder he didn't commit, Nicky finds himself in a small Tennessee town where he sticks out like a IROC-Z amongst the beat-up pickups. Preston plays Jess, one of the locals who befriends Nicky as he tries to help the residents take down the corrupt sheriff, Gilly -- played by John Schneider. Country crooner Tanya Tucker also stars as Trina, who takes Nicky in.

Whiskey Business debuts on Sunday, March 25, at 7 p.m. ET.

Tam Is On A Roll!

JasonTam.jpg

It's been a busy week for ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Jason Tam (Markko)! The talented actor has filmed parts in two different pilots!

On Monday, Tam tweeted a photo of himself wearing surgical scrubs, saying that he was "working in the OR all day" on the NBC pilot DO NO HARM. The hour-long pilot is a modern-day take on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as neurosurgeon Dr. Jeffrey Kohl struggles to keep in check the dangerous alter ego, Ian Price, he can no longer control with medicine. THE COSBY SHOW mom Phylicia Rashad (Felicia, SANTA BARBARA; Courtney, OLTL) plays Jeffrey's boss, Dr. Vanessa Young, the chief of surgery, and Alana De La Garza (Rosa, ALL MY CHILDREN) also stars in one of the leading roles. While it's not known whether Tam is a series regular or a dayplayer in the pilot, there is a socially-awkward Asian character named Dr. Brandon Kimura who is a third year resident at the hospital... and secretly in love with a fellow doctor.

Yesterday, Tam was on the set of the FOX pilot GUILTY. "Got to shoot a scene with Cuba Gooding Jr directed by McG!" he posted. Gooding stars as a morally questionable defense attorney who, after being falsely convicted of fraud and stripped of his license, now uses unorthodox methods to solve the cases he's been prohibited from handling. No word on what role Tam plays in the hour-long legal drama.

Season 2 of THE BAY returns with all new webisodes on Thursday, April 26, at www.thebaytheseries.com. Look for Reilly to debut in mid-May.

On the heels of As Nora Jo Fades Away, the humorous memoir she wrote about the bittersweet experience of living with her Alzheimer's-afflicted grandmother, now she's continuing to champion the cause. "My movie, 14 DAYS With Alzheimer's, has its Los Angeles premiere in two weeks at the Women's International Film Festival," the first-time director tells Soaps In Depth of the short film based on her memoir.

"It screens with the Shorts Program at 11 a.m. on Sunday, March 25, at the West Hollywood Library," Cerasoli reveals, adding that she's proud of her documentary's ongoing success in festivals.

Lucci Gets DEVIOUS!

As ALL MY CHILDREN was leaving the airwaves, rumors were swirling about daytime legend Susan Lucci (Erica) joining the cast of primetime's DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. Well, those rumors turned out to be false, but the actress is joining the cast of DH creator March Cherry's new show, DEVIOUS MAIDS!

"I'm a big fan of Susan Lucci," Cherry said at the recent Writer's Guild Awards, as casting for the new primetime soap pilot was still being developed. "I would love to work with Susan. We just have to figure out the right timing, the parts I have and when her schedule is open."

Well the stars seem to have aligned, and now Lucci is set to play the character of Genevieve Delacourt, one of the wives that the titular devious maids are working for. GENERAL HOSPITAL's Brianna Brown (ex-Lisa) has also been cast as one of the well-to-do wives, while Roselyn Sanchez (Pilar, AS THE WORLD TURNS) is playing one of the maids. DEVIOUS MAIDS is still just a pilot at this point, but as soon as we hear it's been picked up as a fall series, we'll let you know!

"I was traveling to Mendota, IL, to pick up my family at the train station there. And on the way, there's this sign: 'Troy Grove, Birthplace of James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok.' I had no idea we were born in the same county, forty miles apart!" says Willey, who had been looking for a one-man show to take on tour.

"Disney World has always been one of my favorite places," says GENERAL HOSPITAL's Chad Duell (Michael). Well, now even more so!

The actor proposed to Taylor Novack back on August 26th, 2011, during a vacation to the Mouse House in Orlando, FL. And now, for the first time, Duell is publicly sharing the news of their happy day exclusively with Soaps In Depth. "I told Taylor that room service was delivering a very special breakfast and surprised her with the ring and a flower on a plate."

Duell met Taylor after hearing about her repeatedly from his mom -- the two were co-workers. "I was nervous at first," he recalls of his initial meeting with Novack. "But I liked her right off the bat." They hit it off immediately. "We clicked with our personalities -- especially our goofy sides!" Just nine months later, Duell popped the question.

The happy couple are currently planning their big day, and plan on tying the knot before the end of this year.

Believe it or not, ALL MY CHILDREN's Jennifer Bassey (Marian) has a little something in common with Slash and Kim Kardashian: She's the latest celebrity to join in the fight for gender, marriage and human equality by posing for The NOH8 Campaign, an organization that was originally founded to protest California's same-sex marriage ban. And Soaps In Depth has an exclusive first look at her photo! "Many states in this country have finally approved gay marriage, which is a miracle," the actress says. "It's a beautiful thing that it's happening, and it's long overdue."

But Bassey isn't the only former AMCer who's joined the campaign: Alicia Minshew (Kendall) had her own NOH8 photos taken earlier this year! To see her photo, click here.
