Rebecca Staab to Appear on Glee

Former The Young and the Restless, Guiding Light, Port Charles and Loving star Rebecca Staab will be getting her flirt on in upcoming episode of Glee. Staab’s character will be purring like a cougar as she flirts with Puck (Mark Salling), according to Soaps in Depth.

"No singing. Just walkin' and talkin' and flirting with Puck while in a bikini," Staab tells Soaps In Depth. "Cougar stuff."

Staab will appear in the episode titled "Choke" later this season. "My scene is breif, but it's difficult to get on this show, so I'm thrilled.

Bernard's "World" View: In Defense of Christopher Goutman

Several days ago, I posted an entry about the fallout from the death of Dr. Reid Oliver (Eric Sheffer Stevens) on As The World Turns. There were three central ideas in that piece. First, despite the very legitimate complaints that any given fan might have, ATWT is providing great human drama here at the end of its run. Second, Reid’s tragic passing and donation of his heart to Chris (Daniel Cosgrove) encapsulated that goal mainly by thrusting the Hughes’— the show’s core family since its very debut— front and center toward its conclusion. Third, given the soap opera wrapped production months ago, the idea of kicking a dead horse with unrelenting criticism isn’t going to make it win the Kentucky Derby.

I have not budged one iota from any of those positions and I am about to incur the wrath of a whole lot more of you by making what I know will be a very controversial statement to many: I believe that in these final days, executive producer Christopher Goutman has made mostly the right decisions.

VOTE: Supporting Soap Actress of the Decade

As the 00’s come to an end and we look forward to the 2010’s Daytime Confidential pauses to look back at the best of the past decade. In the coming days Daytime Confidential readers will be able to vote for their favorite soap actors and characters in a variety of categories.

Voting ends December 24 at midnight and readers' votes in all the categories will be discussed in a “Best of the Decade” podcast to air the week of January 28.

While lead actors and actresses may have all the limelight it wouldn’t be possible without the supporting actresses and actors they share their scenes with. The dynamic Lesli Kay won a Supporting Emmy in 2001 as Molly Conlan and was nominated in the same category for her The Bold and the Beautiful character Felicia Forrester. Who can forget Eden Riegel as All My Children’s Bianca Montgomery? The Young and the Restless’ Sharon Case keeps fans riveted as the lovelorn kleptomaniac Sharon Abbott.

While lead actors and actresses may have all the limelight it wouldn’t be possible without the supporting actors and actresses they share their scenes with. Would As the World Turns’ Katie (Terri Colombino) be as enjoyable without the talented Trent Dawson as Katie’s best friend Henry Coleman? Robin Strasser’s Dorian Lord is at her best when Tuc Watkins returns as David Vickers and brings out her humanity. Jacob Young’s JR Chandler battles his father– All My Children’s silver fox David Canary– Adam Chandler and together they give soap fans one of daytime’s best father/son dynamics.
