Springtime BLIND ITEMS: Which Soap Couple is Headed For an OPEN Marriage?



 




The year 2013 just might go down as the most risque in the history of daily soaps. I'm hearing one fictional soap couple is about to embark on an open marriage! Reportedly, the soap in question's big boss wants things to REALLY  push the envelope.

Any guesses on which suds couple is about to let the door to their boudoir "swing" wide open? Check out more Springtime BLIND ITEMS below!

This ex-soap dictator threw a party the same night as his or her former sudser celebrated an important milestone with an official shindig. Too bad no one showed up to the bitter, also-ran's party.

One young adult actress has already taped her last air show.

This behind-the-scenes employee didn't quit — he or she was fired after clashing with the top dog over a soap's creative direction.

This bubble thespian is refusing to showcase the amount of skin his or her soap wants on display.

Actors on the set of one popular daytime drama are pissed about the amount of perks a relatively new costar is receiving.

The casting wars between two soaps have only just begun.

Several stars on one serial—who are receiving tons of airtime—are currently in contract negotiations.

Despite rampant denials, one insanely-popular leading man is back on the soap that made him a household name.

Steve "Turtle Acting" Burton is the one with the perks and Not willing to take off clothes. Please let his ass go! He is not Y&R material. He'd do better on Passions or Days.

Since Days likes to de-robe most of their men too, I don't think Steve Burton would be a good fit there either. LOL.

Could the YA actress be Kristen Alderson? I know it's been reported that she would be coming back as a different character, but she's been tweeting about making some big changes lately...so maybe she's taking this opportunity to try something else?

@David "Turtle acting Steve" it has been long enough and SB doesn't fit with Y&R's style of actors...ITA Days, even B&B. He's out of his league and we are STUCK with him, what's a person to do? It would have to come from CBS or Sony, Jill ain't firing Steve...it's one of Jill's perk for taking a pay cut Wink

One hint: The person who doesn't want to show skin is a woman and she's on a soap that premieres April 29. Wink

Ok, you got me there, SoapArmageddon! I forgot about that B&B airs in other countries! Ron Moss is such a wooden actor, DD is a much better leading man & sexy too (IMO)!!

@david46208- I do agree that Steve does not belong on y&r. It is just not for him. He has limited chemistry with most of the females and I just find his character boring. I am a big fan of Steve's and will always want him to return to gh at some point. He never liked to take his shirt off on gh, so I would think the same pattern has followed him at y&r. My guess his preferential treatment is also causing resentment from y&r vets. Can't say I blame them but I really feel Steve will be gone from y&r by this summer.

Also, is Amelia Heinle pregnant? She keeps covering up her stomach with jackets and her character is trying to get pregnant.

Agree with a lot of the comments above...

However I can't see CBS or at least Y and R with the open marriage storyline. I'm thinking this would not go over well with the average Y and R viewer. Most on here would be fine with it, I agree.

...and I can see the perks being showered on SB from Miss Jill.

Open Relationship --- I think the best guess is Lauren and Michael on YR. This would be such a bold choice for today's audience and I think it would really work if handled correctly. I don't think it's OLTL or AMC because I feel like it wouldn't be a big issue, they'd just do it. Of course an older couple might be considering it. Viki/Clint? Dorian/David? Wouldn't that be crazy!?

Ex-Dictator --- MAB

YA Actress --- Arianna YR

Writer Fired, Not Quit --- Susie OLTL

Bubble Thespian Doesn't Wanna Show Skin --- Jamey threw me off with it being a female from OLTL or AMC...I am guessing one of the newbies from AMC. Someone who hasn't done a soap or been in the business awhile. I don't think it's OLTL, those hot mammas look damn good in that new video promo. Especially Rama!

Actors pissed about new actor getting special treatment --- I wanna saw Sabrina from GH, but Dylan from YR seems more the case. He's newer and he is JFPs pet, so yeah. Or longshot, I want to say Corbin Bleu from the new OLTL...is it just me or has he been getting a lot of promotion for OLTL already?

Casting Wars --- YR and GH makes the most sense; although it could be GH and OLTL. but I think that was just mainly the GH transplants and that's kind of old news

Contract Negotiations for those currently not on contract --- It's gotta be GH. They've been bring back vets left and right, surely they wanna hold on to a handful of them. Laura, Bobbie, Nikolas

Leading man coming back --- I guess Ron Moss seems pretty reasonable. However, what about Peter Reckell as Bo on DAYS?

Will you tell us if we're right? Do we get a prize? :Innocent

I don't think it's on Y&R for stated reasons from Pferrando, I think it's on OLTL or AMC from descriptions...it's probably a younger couple...I could see Brad Bell doing something like this or Days. Don't know enough about GH to say.

Despite rampant denials, one insanely-popular leading man is back on the soap that made him a household name.

Please let this one be Jack Wagner:) So much story potential there.

open marriage - Michael and Lauren on YR

One young adult actress has already taped her last air show. - Adriana on YR

This behind-the-scenes employee didn't quit — he or she was fired after clashing with the top dog over a soap's creative direction. - Horgan from OLTL

This bubble thespian is refusing to showcase the amount of skin his or her soap wants on display. - this could be a lot of people

Actors on the set of one popular daytime drama are pissed about the amount of perks a relatively new costar is receiving. - probably Steve Burton on YR

The casting wars between two soaps have only just begun. - GH/YR

Several stars on one serial—who are receiving tons of airtime—are currently in contract negotiations. - GH?

Despite rampant denials, one insanely-popular leading man is back on the soap that made him a household name. - first thought: John Stamos, also possible: Jonathan Jackson or Trevor St. John

Here are my guesses.

This ex-soap dictator threw a party the same night as his or her former sudser celebrated an important milestone with an official shindig. Too bad no one showed up to the bitter, also-ran's party.
Frons or MAB

One young adult actress has already taped her last air show.
Lindsey Morgan GH

This behind-the-scenes employee didn't quit — he or she was fired after clashing with the top dog over a soap's creative direction.
The OLTL writer

This bubble thespian is refusing to showcase the amount of skin his or her soap wants on display. One of the actress from AMC or OLTL

Actors on the set of one popular daytime drama are pissed about the amount of perks a relatively new costar is receiving. Steve Burton makes sense

The casting wars between two soaps have only just begun
GH vs. Y&R

Several stars on one serial—who are receiving tons of airtime—are currently in contract negotiations.
GH easy, Frank has already said, he's trying to get some of the vets to stay longer.

Despite rampant denials, one insanely-popular leading man is back on the soap that made him a household name.
Either Trevor St. John, OLTL or John Stamos, GH

Love these soap blind items guys.

Please, please, please let it be Brian Frons. His smug and cavalier attitude while killing two soaps in one day (and killing SFT at two different networks) while sending Lucci out on a PR tour, well, there's not much bad enough that I could wish on him. Realizing he's friendless and it's all his fault is a pretty good start, though

I don't think it would be MAB. Even though she's gone her family still owns Y&R so I don't see her attempting to throw an alternative party when her family is part of an official shindig.

Although crazier things have been done!

OH, and the open marriage. As smug as Taylor is I'd LOVE it if she and Eric were married and he told her he still needed a little Logan on the side! LOL
