ABC’s “General Hospital” will air a repeat of its September 11, 2012 episode. However, CBS’ “The Bold And The Beautiful” and “The Young And The Restless,” as well as NBC’s “Days Of Our Lives,” will all be pre-empted.
Former “DOOL” star Shelley Hennig (ex-Stephanie) has found new work since her series, “The Secret Circle” was cancelled. She recently shot a guest role on the new CBS sitcom, “Friend Me.” The series follows some friends who move from LA to Indiana to work for a coupon website.

Patrika Darbo’s (Nancy) representative has released an official statement from the actress regarding her return:
“I am thrilled to be reprising the role of Nancy Wesley. I can’t wait to see what the writers and producers of ‘Days’ have Nancy up to and I am glad to be back and finally taking care of Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin), the way a Mother should. ‘Days’ has always been big on family and Nancy is Chloe’s mom and Parker’s Grandma or Granny…but I personally like GLAM MAW! Let those that caused Nancy’s sweet daughter problems be on guard. Let the Drama begin!!”
