We actually spoke of her yesterday on the show. We said that she was in Australia and doesn’t like getting on planes very much, so we’re going to have to figure out how to get her here.

Mary Beth Evans and Stephen Nichols reveal all to Glamour about life on Days of our Lives
Nichols: "They originally wrote the role as recurring. [Steve was] someone that was going to come in and stir up a bunch of trouble for Bo. There was a dude at NBC at the time that said, 'Why don't we get a character like Falcon Eddie on Rich Man, Poor Man...a guy with a patch.' That's where the idea came from!"

Evans: "I hadn't really seen the show, and there was Stephen in his leather jacket with his scar and patch, and I was this goody-two shoes, and I'm thinking, 'This is weird.' [Laughs] But we had a great connection from the start!"

Shonda Rhimes: Bill Cosby did not inspire this week's episode of Scandal
An acclaimed professor was found to have drugged and raped scores of women on Thursday's episode, but Cosby didn’t serve as inspiration. “I don’t need the Cosby scandal to inspire me to tell a story about rape,” says Rhimes.

Let’s not diminish or insult the stories of these survivors by suggesting that I could only decide to tell a story about rape because of a celebrity scandal.”

Steve Kazee to recur on Nashville
The Tony- and Grammy-winning actor, singer and guitarist has joined Nashville in the recurring role of Riff. He will make his debut on the show in early 2016.

Ten years ago, Riff was a country music star at the top of his game: No. 1 hits, platinum albums and sold-out tours. At the Nashville season 3 key arttime, this good old boy from Arkansas enjoyed the thrills of fame – partying and women – and acquired a legion of loyal fans, captivated by his genuine sound and authentic storytelling. However, everything changed when Riff met Heidi, a Southern beauty with a budding musical career of her own. He fell head over boots in love and chose what none of his contemporaries was willing to do – leave it all behind – farm over fortune, the family over fame. Riff and Heidi would join the show’s leading music couple, Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon (Charles Esten).
