Another day, another reality show greenlit. Coming soon (unfortunately) to a television set, personal computer screen or one of those little dohickeys that I can't imagine someone wanting to watch television on,  near year will be NBC's Celebrity Circus. That's right ladies and germs, step right up to see a motley crew of semi celebs from yesteryear-including former General Hospital, Melrose Place and Bold and the Beautiful heartthrob Antonio Sabato Jr.-perofrm such death defying feats as high-wire acts and trapeze stunts. In addition to Sabato Jr., one-time supermodel Rachel Hunter, Brady Bunch alum Christopher Knight, one-hit-wonder R&B singer Blue Cantrell, someone named "Wee-Man" and Janet Evans will (cough) "star". NSync memberJoey Fatone will serve as ringmaster for the series premiering June 11. Isn't this like his 17th reality show? How do you go from the number one boy band in the world to Cirque du Soeil for D-Listers?

Wishful Casting: A Ted King and Tamara reunion on Days of Our Lives? Beemer steaming up Bold and the Beautiful?

What soap fan doesn't sit at home and play fantasy exec/writer? Lord knows I do, it's what gets me through plots about unaborted children, jerky camera movement and the lack of diamonds or cleavage in Genoa City. Tonight I feel like playing fantasy casting director and letting you know just exactly who, in my humble opinion, should play which roles on what soaps.

Ted King to Days as Lawrence Alamain

With all the talk about the notorious Alamain clan of Days of Our Lives coming up both on the show and here at Daytime Confidential, a thought popped into my mind about how awesome it would be for former GH baddie Ted King (ex-Alcazar) to reunite with his former leading lady Tamara Braun (ex-Carly, GH/Ava, Days) in Salem!

  King would be perfect as dastardly Alamain patriarch Lawrence. I loved Michael Sabatino, who originated the role, but he's been away from the soap for so many years and as the returns in recent years of Christie Clark, Austin Peck, Billy Warlock and many others have proven, having fan faves reprise their roles doesn't always lead to rating success for Days.

King and Braun were a hit with GH fans as Lorenzo and Carly. Those fans could decide to tune in to Days to see them reunited and raising hell. And while we're at it, why not throw in Ignacio Serrichio (ex-Diego, GH) as a recast for Lawrence's son Nicholas? READ MORE
