NEWS: Ken Corday, Karla Mosley, Lisa Rinna, 'Empire' Ad Rates, New 'PLL' Intro

Days of our Lives viewers saw Bo Brady's face on Tuesday.
Ken Corday happy to have Peter Reckell back as Bo Brady on Days of our Lives
“Peter Reckell is part of the fabric and history of Days of our Lives and we are thrilled to have him back," says executive producer Ken Corday. "What we think has been happening with Bo hasn’t been. It’s a huge mystery, where he is and what he’s doing. That has to be solved.”

The Bold and the Beautiful star Karla Mosley: "Diversity helps everyone"
"We can look at Misty Copeland becoming the first African American woman to be promoted to principal dancer for ABT. People are beginning to understand that diversity helps everyone," says Mosley. "It enriches our creative thinking, our marketing, and the more people you have with various life experiences the broader your scope is. As a businessperson it’s a smart decision."

"The LGBT community has been extremely supportive. People are seeing their story on TV or a story very similar to theirs. People love the fact that Rick and Maya are staying together. People say that’s not realistic or that would never really happen but in this situation we can say it does happen and that it happens everyday."

Lisa Rinna grateful for the foundation she received on Days of our Lives
"When I started, you'd have 20 to 40 pages of dialogue to memorize every single day," Rinna says. "You had to learn so fast. It was sink or swim… [It's] some of the hardest work you'll ever have to do."

The pressure was so great, in fact, that Rinna often broke down when she came home after an intense day of filming.

"I would come home and I would get in the bathtub and I would cry. I would have a really good cry," she admits. "It was all-consuming."

Though difficult to go through at the time, Rinna now looks back on her soap opera days as the training ground that honed her skill and gave her a strong foundation for the rest of her career.

"It prepared me for anything else," she says. "I really am grateful for that."
