One of the stars of VH1's upcoming CONFESSIONS OF A TEEN IDOL is former DAYS OF OUR LIVES actor Billy Hufsey, who played Emilio Ramirez. Hufsey spoke to VH1 about where his life is today.

How does it feel to be back on TV?
After retiring from entertainment for the past eight years, I have to say I am actually in a state of euphoria. I believe the old adage, "You don’t know what you’re missing until you don’t have it anymore", truly applies.

I am not only excited about being back on television but also I am excited about being able to perform, which is what I truly believe God put me on this Earth to do. There is nothing more gratifying than putting smiles on peoples faces and hope in their hearts, which is what I believe entertainers do. With the crazy times we are living in today, all we have is each other, which is what I believe to be the best gift of all.

Is your peak still ahead of you?
I sure hope so!!!

There are many peaks and valleys in someone’s career and throughout their lives. It’s not the magnitude of the degree of success, monetary success or fame that evaluates someone’s life. I believe that the ultimate success for someone is inner peace, happiness, and contentment. My "peak" is today, as it is everyday - as I get out of bed with a smile on my face and hope in my heart.

Some of the other former "teen idols" have soap experience as well. Chris Atkins played Sue Ellen's younger lover, Peter, on DALLAS. Jamie Walters starred on BEVERLY HILLS, 90210 and THE HEIGHTS. Jeremy Jackson once appeared on SANTA BARBARA. Adrian Zmed had a role on PASSIONS. Even Eric Nies played a disc jockey on DAYS,

CONFESSIONS OF A TEEN IDOL premieres Sunday night at 8pm ET on VH1.
