NEWS: Nathan Fillion, Justin Hartley & Chrishell Stause, Jen Franz, Lois Robbins, Kimberly McCullough, Misty Rowe

One Life to Live Nathan Fillion: "Anyone who talks down on daytime (television), and I never will, has never done daytime"
“It wasn’t like one show a week,” he says of his three years playing Joey Buchanan, “it was every day. We didn’t do cue cards. I’ve heard rumors of cue cards. Even the older, older guys did not use cue cards. They were seasoned pros. Anyone who talks down on daytime (television), and I never will, has never done daytime. It is a mountain of work. It is 40 pages a day.

“It’s a muscle. It’s like you start doing pushups. If you do pushups every day for three years by the end of it you can do a lot of pushups. I’m pretty sure by the end of three years that memorizing, that taking of the words and letting them live, was a muscle I flexed pretty well.”

TV and soap actress Lois Robbins discusses new play 'L.O.V.E.R.'
In the daytime world, Robbins is best known for her acting work on such soap operas as One Life to Live, Ryan's Hope and All My Children. "Those were a long time ago, but I think it is the single best training for an actor. I loved them and I loved having the steady job. I learned 40 pages of dialogue a night, so it was not that hard to memorize 90 pages of dialogue for L.O.V.E.R. Daytime really trains you to memorize."

The Daily Show executive producer Jen Flanz was once an intern at One Life to Live
"The idea of going to law school fueled a fire in me that I've never had before—I was like, I just can’t. I’ve got to get a million internships! So I did a bunch of internships, I did CBS local news and One Life to Live and VH1 Storytellers—I was there for the first Behind The Music, which makes me feel old. The Rosie O’Donnell Show when Rosie was still on the air…I did all of these internships."

Justin Hartley & fiancee Chrishell Stause head to Monaco for Monte-Carlo TV Festival
“We made it, our bags did not,” Stause (ex-Amanda, All My Children) shared with fans on Instagram, along with the photo below. “When life gives you πŸ‹πŸ‹, add vodka! #MonteCarlo #FTV17 #festivaltvmc.”

She added on Twitter, “@British_Airways just gave me pajamas for my flight! Best thing of all time πŸ™ŒπŸΌOnly made better that she called it a ‘sleeper suit’ ❤️.”

General Hospital star Kimberly McCullough gives birth to a son
McCullough announced on social media she has given birth to a son.

"Baby Otis was born today June 7th. To quote Mary J 'I never knew there was a love like this before,'" the 39-year-old actress tweeted with a photo of her newborn's tiny feet.

"Sorry I was so tired. It's Faith Evans, not MJ," she followed up the next day.

Hee Haw star Misty recalls marriage to James DePaiva
Rowe said she married a waiter and, because money was scarce, they had their reception at producer Sam Lovullos's home. Kenny Rogers (yes, that Kenny Rogers) shot the wedding portrait. Rogers was part of the Hee Haw family at the time because he was married to Gordon.

Rowe said her waiter husband became a soap opera star and, six months after the wedding, he ran off with another soap opera person. Soon after, she began a long association with the theater show “Always... Patsy Cline.”
