Summer is often the steamiest season for soaps with more sex, skin and scandals than I can shake my clicker at. And if the latest rumors are true, we are in for two sizzling pieces of oldie-but-oh-so-goodie sets o' eye candy to ogle at. Let's get this party started!
As all rabid Young and the Restless fans know, Lily and Cane are ZOMG getting hitched this Friday! And word on the street is, the drool-worthy Thom Bierdz (he used to play the character Phillip Chancellor III and in real life, he's currently pursuing his other major passion, painting, swoon). Why it may be true: Cane is supposedly in for a shockaroo on his big day - nothing like bringing back the man who was killed off in a car accident five years ago (though he briefly revisited Y&R as a ghost) and who also lived as the groom (yet another confusing baby switch subplot) until his untimely death! I hope he strides dramatically down the aisle mid-ceremony brandishing DNA evidence of his legitimate status as Jill and Philip II's son.
Oh and Rick Hearst, who was bounced from his semi-permanent post on General Hospital as Sonny's bro Ric Lansing has been snagged by the Bold and the Beautiful to play Whipple "Whip" Jones - a role he had for a few short months in 2002 before being fired by B&B and being poached by GH. Damn, the behind the scenes showdowns between writers, actors and producers must be as intense (but most likely without the glamorous negligees, four-inch alligator-skin heels, tumblers of Scotch and ozone-defying 'dos. I hope.) as the shows themselves - wonder no more from whence this wacky scribes derive their inspiration, Dolls.
