NEWS: Melody Thomas Scott, Madonna, Ryan, Crawford

Y&R's Melody Thomas Scott planning a tell-all book
"It's going to be very cathartic for me. Because I'm going to be talking about things that no one knows about me," Scott told AAP in Sydney on Tuesday. "Things about my childhood that no one has known about. I had a lot of adversity in my life when I was child."

Scott says her life would have ended up very differently if it hadn't been for THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, which she joined at the age of 23 in 1979.

"I have no idea where I would've been. Probably dead. I would probably be dead right now," Scott says. "It was not a healthy environment and my grandmother who raised me was a compulsive hoarder. Had my mother raised me rather than my grandmother it's a very hard call what kind of life I would have had. I would probably have 17 children by now, living in a trailer. That's just my guess."

Did Joan Crawford's relationship with daughter Christina worse after THE SECRET STORM?
Atlanta playwright Topher Payne stars as the Hollywood icon in his play “Christina Darling,” opening Friday. DeWayne Morgan, who is directing the production for Process Theatre Co. at Onstage Atlanta, feels that some of what Christina says might have been exaggerated. Morgan thinks the relationship completely fell into the sewer after Joan took over for her daughter on the soap opera THE SECRET STORM.

Why do movie directors get more credit than TV directors?
In television, directors work in relative obscurity. They're listed at the end of the opening credits but rarely become household names. TV is known as a writer's medium, driven by the people who devise plotlines and character arcs. The auteurs are the show creators and the show runners, who oversee all aspects of production.

How will Zach Roerig spend his summer vacation?
