News Round-up

The 11th Annual Southwest Florida SoapFest, scheduled for May 2 and May 3, 2009, returns the best of daytime television's soap opera stars to Marco Island to raise funds for local children's charities.

DAYS' Thaao Penghlis comments on his recent intervew and upcoming story
"I'm glad you liked the interview with Michael [Fairman]. I think he was fair although I went on the boards to see how people were responding. Thanks for the comments but some people really see into things that are not there. It reveals their lack of insights. But my girls are funny and have a great sense of humor. I laugh my head off.

"Some good news. The story I'm playing at the moment is a lot of fun, especially with Ari. She's a delight. Great gal and I think you will be entertained. And next week great scenes to shoot with Jay, Challenging.

"Leann will be back for one day. Miss my Anna. As many of you do. But this I feel will be the final chapter and sadly I will miss my actors especially Joe whose been really upset with the coming story."

Kate Walsh "might" return to GREY'S ANATOMY
The rotating doors at Seattle Grace may welcome back another familiar face — again. PRIVATE PRACTICE star Kate Walsh, whose multi-episode GREY'S ANATOMY-PRACTICE crossover stint concluded Thursday night, says you may not have seen the last of her on her former show.

"I might [come back]," she tells Us Weekly. "I'm not gonna say. Who knows what's in the mind of [show creator] Shonda Rhimes."

Deirdre Barlow lookalike hunted by police
A Deirdre Barlow lookalike is being hunted by police after she stole cash from a man who collapsed in the street. The 49-year-old victim, who discovered that he had a brain tumour three weeks ago, was carrying £2,500 in a bag when he collapsed in Eltham High Street, south-east London. He lay unconscious as the woman, who apparently looked very similar to the CORONATION STREET character, made off with his money.

CCTV footage shows the thief walking off as paramedics fought to save the man, reports the Daily Express.

The victim said that he could forgive the woman and urged her to return the cash, adding: "I don't feel any real animosity towards this person and I'm not vengeful. She probably thought I was dead and wouldn't need it. Nobody really saw her take my bag but the police have told me she's a bit of a Deirdre Barlow lookalike. She must have seen what was in there and thought 'this is too good to leave' and just walked off."
