On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke, Jillian, Regan and Melodie discuss the latest in All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless storylines and news, including:


Why is All My Children destroying Annie in the process of writing the character out? Why couldn’t they come up with a good exit for her? Kendall Hart’s continued heart problems put new meaning in her last name. AMC’s Cameron Mathison and Rebecca Budig will guest on ABC’s Castle, but will the show cast current One Life to Live stars in guest roles?

The Young and the Restless’ Olivia popped up on The Bold and the Beautiful for Justin and Donna’s wedding. Jillian and Luke enjoyed the wink wink scenes between Bill Spencer and Olivia. Donna isn’t the only B&B bride. Pam will be walking down the aisle soon to marry Donna’s father. The engagement doesn’t make Stephanie happy, but she’s willing to bury the hatchet in support of her sister.

What is going on at Days of our Lives? The show cut into Jennifer to remove her heart and then put it back? Rafe is being held captive and fake Rafe has slipped into his life. There have been so many doppelgangers on soaps recently Luke’s beginning to think he needs one.

The Buchanan twin’s wedding kicked off, but it sure seemed a lot about Clint. Not that we minded. What will happen when John, Jessica and Brody find out the secrets Natalie has been keeping? Melodie loves Mad Marty, but is the character being written into a corner. What are the DC gang's first impressions of Ted King as Tomas? Is it smart for One Life to Live to be using Roger Howarth’s picture so much or will it cause fans to get upset?
