After three years, actress Grace Cassidy has decided that she's had enough of her role in Emmerdale playing Hannah Barton and has quit the iTV soap.
While I don't think I will really miss Cassidy's portrayal of Hannah, I wish her the best of luck in her future endevors!
What do you think of the dismantling of the Barton family? Are you sad to see them all go? Or are you happy? I have to admit that I am glad that the last two standing are Moria and Adam! Let me know your take in the comments below.

Oh just shoot me now. It's been confirmed by multiple sources that The Young and The Restless is going to take the pairing of Victor and Sharon to a new level, reuniting the couple and eventually moving them into the bedroom and doing the do.....
Just why? Why does Maria Arena Bell hate me so? What did I do? LML didn't like me much, but I'd take Victoria getting boinked on the head with a cardboard brick over this foolishness any day! Or heck go full on with Victor/Genoveve! I'd take it! Victor and Laura Spencer is less skeevy then this! It's just wrong....
But hey that's just my take, what do you think of this news? Let me know in the comments below.

I hope you all like yourselves some Derek Branning because EastEnders has extended actor Jamie Foreman's contract for an additional six months! This means Foreman will continue to film with the series until October, at which point his contract will either be extended or his character will be written out.
Are you excited or disappointed by this news? Let me know in the comments below.
Congratulations to Brenda Strong from the new Dallas series on TNT who was just named #52 of People's Magazine's Most Beautiful Women! WAY TO GO!
Check out the new issue of People Magazine available on newsstands now.
What did you think of that promo? I kinda shook my head at some of the questionable acting there by a certain fired starlet but hey that's just me.
After making her triumphant return to General Hospital Kristina Wagner's character Felicia Jones immediately began to trend as the social networking website Twitter went a buzz with news, theories and discussions of what her arrival will mean for the show!
General Hospital executive producer Frank Valentini spent the day a twittering about a "BIG" surprise coming on today's episode of General Hospital and it all lead up to the final moment of the episode in which in an arguably lack luster scene Maxie admitted to Spinelli that she saw Matt KILL Lisa Niles!
Um yea... so I definitely saw this twist coming a mile away, but I kinda got swept up in the "Shocking twist" promotion that Frank was doing and assumed that the final act might have included a twist surprise by Frisco Jones (aka Jack Wagner) for just a quick drop in! Now THAT would have been shocking and amazing, but this...not so much.
What did you think of the twist? Were you shocked? Let me know in the comments below.
As season 3 of the hit web series DeVanity goes into production, the series has announced that former Dynasty and Emmerdale star Maxwell Caulfield has been cast in the role of Richard DeVanity!
I absolutely adored Caulfield's portrayal of the evil bigamist Mark Wyle on Emmerdale and was saddened when I heard that he was going to be leaving the program and the series choice to kill him off (Home Farm hasn't been the same without him!) but Caulfield was an amazing actor and I am sure that he will do a brilliant job on DeVanity and definately be another reason to tune into this show week after week!
What do you think of this casting news? Does Caulfield fit what you have in mind for someone of Richard DeVanity's standards? Let me know in the comments below.
Great news for fans of the CBS drama Criminal Minds. Soaps in depth is reporting that former General Hospital star Sebastian Roche has booked a return as the Interpol agent Clyde Easter in the series explosive two hour season finale!
While I haven't caught Criminal Minds just yet, it is definitely on my list of shows to catch at some time and I am super excited for Roche and wish him the best of luck!
The two hour season finale airs at 9 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. CST on Wednesday, May 16, only on CBS.
Since 2008 Fans have been clamoring for Kristina Wagner to return to General Hospital in the role of Felicia Jones, and today they get their wish as the fan favorite returns to Port Charles to shake things up!
Now the only question is can her husband Frisco (played by Jack Wagner) be far behind her? I guess we will just have to tune in to find out.
EastEnders star Patsy Palmer last EastEnders episode for 6 months will be airing today (April 27th)! The actress is taking a 6 month sybatical to be with her kids, and will hopefully return to the soap later this year.
Are you sad to see her go? Do you want her to come back? let me know in the comments below.

What did you think of the trailer? Are you excited to see the film?
After having been the focus and one of the few bright spots during a very dark period of Days of our lives actors John Aniston and Suzanne Rogers who portray Victor and Maggie Kiriakis were not seen at ALL the entire month of April! This is the first time either actor has been absent from Days since 2008!
Why is this? Why did the network / the new regime not take to "Magic" like the fans had? I guess only time will show what the future has in store for this couple, but it is sad to see that the actors were not used at all, and thus breaking a streak that no one wanted to see broken.
Are you missing Magic? Why do you think the regime didn't take to these vets like it took to others? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below or on twitter @SoapWikiJohn
Has anyone seen the film yet? What did you think? So far it hasn't come near me just yet, but when it get's released on DVD I will definitely check it out.
Whoops! Someone over at ABC used the General Hospital twitter account to tweet out a "winning" sandwich with a link to the All My Children replacement The Chew's page! The tweet has since been deleted. I just find it funny that it happened this way... wonder if the chew will ever pimp GH?
Great news for fans of Charles Shaughnessy the former Days of our Lives star has booked himself a two episode guest stint on the hit Nickelodeon series Victorious!
We here on the island wish Mr. Shaughnessy the best of luck with this and hope he returns to Salem soon!- Shaughnessy is scheduled to make 12 appearances in Days of our Lives starting next month.
Going back through the Young and the Restless history book headwriter Maria Arena Bell came across the name Tim Reid so of course in typical MAB fashion she just HAD to bring him back! So we now have the news that actor Aaron Lustig will be returning to the soap world (and for the first time on Y&R since 1997) for a short guest stint as the evil Ricky tries to dig up some dirt on Miss Phylis
Are you excited about this news?

Pretty Little Liars star Brant Daugherty has secured himself a guest stint on the NBC soap Days of our Lives where he will be involved in the Will/Sonny (WilSon) story.
Do you wanna see Daugherty get between the pair? Maybe help them actually get together?
Daugherty is expected to begin airing in late June.
Well knowing the news was coming doesn't make this post any easier to type. Days of our Lives actors Christie Clark and Patrick Muldoon who play Carrie and Austen Reed respectfully have filmed their final scenes on Days of our Lives after returning to the program this past September.
While I wasn't an over the top fan of the stories and directions that they decided to take the characters in, Muldoon and Clark's performances were stellar and they will definitely be missed, hopefully this will not be the last time we see Carrie and Austen in town, but for now it's adios.
How do you think the pair will exit? Will they find their way back together? Will someone/both die? Let me hear your speculation in the comments below or on twitter @SoapWikiJohn
Great news for fans of The Bold and the Beautiful after the success of the first for box sets (which included episode 1-100) the fifth box set collection containing episode 101-125 has been announced!

Are you excited to see the set get released? Will you be purchasing it? Let me know in the comments below.
Fans of Guiding Light have been clamoring for old episodes since the soaps cancellation in 2009, now thanks in part to Soap Classic we are getting the entire series from 1979 released on DVD! The only down side is the sets are currently only available in Germany!
Die Springfield Story (Aka The Guiding Light) Where it all began (Wie alles begann) season 1 (staffel 1) aka 1979- will be released on June 22nd and will include both German and English audio! While I have not placed my order just yet I have to say I am very tempted! Are you?

Will Underwood get or take the part? We will have to wait and see as he is also up for the role of the Red Power Ranger in the upcoming 2013 series!
The role of "Drew" is described by Soap Opera Digest to be "A 30-to-35-year-old well-built, Caucasian male. "Drew is the ideal man in every way," reads the breakdown for the part. "From his incredible good looks, to his sincerity, integrity and strength. He is the total package. He is smart and caring and has a way about him that puts anyone at ease. But behind his perfect facade may lie a pain that drives him to do anything to forget his past."
What do you think of this news? Do you think Underwood would make a good Eric Brady? Better yet do you think "Drew" Is Eric? Let me know your take in the comments below.

So oops? LOL The long awaited and highly anticipated recap and reaction to the Devanity season finale is FINALLY here!
Hey guys! So I know we haven't really been active around the blog, mainly because a deadly combination of school and work has kept me BEYOND busy, and tonight really isn't an exception to that business but rather I just felt like blogging a bit and catching up on some web series work that I have kinda been neglecting, so get ready for a WebSeries marathon because that's where I am heading now starting with the JTS.TV series Generic Girl.
