Alexa Havens (Babe) has opted not to re-sign with the soap


"All My Children" is losing Justin Bruening (Jamie) and Kelli Giddish (Di)


Three casting calls have gone out: one is for Walter, a man in his late 40s who teaches American Sign Language and will help Spike; another is for Dre, an African American in a hip-hop group; and the third is for Ritchie, a hunk said to be Annie’s brother and a love interest for Babe.


Kelly Ripa: I Still Have a Crush on My Husband: After 11 years and three children, Kelly Ripa still views her marriage to Mark Consuelos as daisy fresh. "I've had a crush on my husband since the day I met him," the Live with Regis and Kelly star, 36, tells Redbook for its August issue. She also says that when she first encountered Consuelos, who hosts the NBC reality show Age of Love and will star in an upcoming Oxygen TV movie, Husband for Hire, it was as if she'd been struck by a thunderbolt. "I had a dream about him that night," she recalls. "The next day I went up to him, and although I didn't even know his name, I said, 'I had had a dream about you last night.'" In the dream, which she revealed to him, they were already wed, were the parents of a small daughter and were flying to Rome. Ripa jokes that she's surprised he didn't consider taking out a restraining order against her. For his part, Consuelos, 36, tells the magazine that when he first met Ripa, "She pretty much fulfilled all of my requirements and then some." Despite her happiness with the way things turned out – the couple's children are Michael, 10; Loa, 6; and Joaquin, 4 – Ripa admits, "We argue, but we know how to compromise." Neither ever wins his or her fight, she says, explaining, "It's not like one of us is living the other's lifestyle – we're living our lifestyle."


Headwriters Barbara Esensten and James Harmon tell Soap Opera Digest not to expect the “vampires or murder mysteries” they’ve become famous for over the years. What we can look forward to is veterans returning to the forefront, romance, and comedy
