NEWS ROUNDUP: Keiko Elizabeth Comes To DAYS, Michelle Dockery, Paul Anthony Stewart, Brady Bunch

Keiko Elizabeth Suda will make her first television appearance on DAYS OF OUR LIVES on August 15.
She's excited about her first television appearance–which she isn't allowed to talk much about–but said her late entry into acting means her entire life doesn't hinge on it.

"When you do something since you were young, a lot of your ego gets attached to what people think of your work," she said. "[When you] do something for a long period of time you lose your curiosity about it. [I've been] engaging in the process of getting better because my ego wasn't so wrapped up in it."

DOWNTON ABBEY a soap opera? Lady Mary doesn't mind
"That will-they, won't-they tussle was going on for so long, it didn't surprise me that fans wanted to know what would happen," actress Michelle Dockery told "It wasn't an easy ride for them, so at the end of (season) two, it was nice to hear that people were jumping up and down for them. I did wonder if (show creator) Julian (Fellowes) would string that out even more, that Matthew would be her biggest regret, so I was really pleased. It feels right."

Hulu Plus Comes to Apple TV
Hulu has struck a deal to provide its $7.99-per-month Hulu Plus subscription service via Apple TV starting July 31, the company said. The deal might help Apple TV compete with other platforms that already offer Hulu Plus. Apple TV has previously offered movies and TV series via Netflix and iTunes, while Hulu Plus is already available on gaming consoles like Microsoft's Xbox 360 and over-the-top boxes like Roku.

But the move could help Apple build a stronger consumer proposition for its Apple TV device, which has remained somewhat of a sideline for the company.

90210's Tiffani Thiessen on Falling Out With Jennie Garth: "I Was the One Who Was Hurt"
Despite an initially cold reception by her female costars ("The girls were not very nice to me," Thiessen confessed), Garth "actually apologized" for her behavior towards Thiessen. After that, "Jennie and I became very good friends," she revealed.

The women became so close, "I saw her give birth to her first child!" the former SAVED BY THE BELL star shared. But when asked what happened between them, Thiessen refused to go into detail.

"We had a falling out and we grew apart," she explained. "I was the one who was hurt, let's just say that. I was the one who was hurt."

A BRADY BUNCH Reboot Produced By Vince Vaughn In Development At CBS

In addition, their ex-spouses are still part of their lives. The changes in the premiere reflect the evolution of family dynamics over the past four decades.
