Former “Days of our Lives” actor Dylan Patton had some visitors today — a bunch of L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies who raided his house and arrested him for selling cocaine.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … cops got wind that the 20-year-old was allegedly selling coke out of his Agoura Hills home, so they sent an undercover cop in a few days ago to make a purchase.  We’re told deputies then got a search warrant and raided the house this morning.

Patton is currently in jail.  Bail has been set at $30,000.

Patton made appearances on several shows throughout his career — including “Cold Case” and “That’s So Raven” — but he’s best known for the role of Will Horton on “Days of Our Lives,” starring in numerous episodes of the soap between 2009-2010.

William Roache, was charged on Wednesday with two counts of rape against an underage girl, British prosecutors said.

Roache, 81, who plays Ken Barlow in the popular soap opera “Coronation Street”, is the latest high-profile figure to be accused of sex crimes in Britain since the death of BBC television presenter Jimmy Savile in 2011.

Savile was one of the BBC’s biggest stars in the 1970s and 1980s, but after his death police discovered he had allegedly committed sex crimes on an unprecedented scale, triggering an investigation that has netted several other celebrities.

“We have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Mr Roache to be charged with two offences of rape relating to a girl, aged 15, in 1967,” said prosecutor Nazir Afzal in a statement.

Actor Thaao Penghlis is a Soap Opera Veteran.  Days Of Our Lives was home to Penghlis for many years as “Tony DiMera”,  the son of  Stefano DiMera played by Actor Joseph Mascolo. Penghlis was nominated for the Soap Opera Digest Awards and the Daytime Emmy Awards for playing the role of  Tony DiMera.

His character was killed off, however, “We” the fans can bring him back!  The writers know what to do and how to write him back in. If not, just let me and the rest of Penghlis fans know and we will do the writing!

If you know of a Petition out there for Penghlis, please let us know so that we can get our “Tony DiMera” back.  He is a Villian that we love.  I would love to see (Louise Sorel) Vivian Alamain and Tony DiMera cook up a Salem Scheme!

Daytime Soaps Power Couple Represents The Power Of Love

One Life To Live is  one of the hottest Soap Opera on TV.  Characters Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn)  and Viki Buchanan (Erika Slezak) are the past and future  hottest, cutest, sexist couple.  Fans of One Life To Live want to see Clint and Viki back together.

Actor Jerry verDorn took over the role of Clint Buchanan which was  originated by Actor Clint Richie who sadly passed away January 31, 2009.  Clint and Viki represent wisdom, strength and the Power Of Love.   Luther Vandross song “Power Of Love” should be used to rekindle the love between Clint and Viki.

Top ratings for the show would be a wedding between Clint and Viki and the theme song should be Stevie Wonder “As.”  They have The Power Of Love and They will be loving each other always.  Stevie Wonder could make a guest starring appearance for the wedding.

All My Children & One Life To Live: FANS OUTRAGE (Petition)

Topic: All My Children – One Life To Live




  • Fans are coming out from all over the US voicing how they feel about ABC/Disney taking away All My Children and One Life To Live.  Petition and Boycotts are forming to let the network know that their fans are hurt and upset at this non-sense action and the fans are not taking it anymore.  Here are comments on what AMC and OLTL Fans have to say.

From: Mike Morelli

I hope that all our signatures will not only save One Life To Live but All My Children as well. To see either one or both of these shows go off the air is like losing 2 family members. The cast of both shows are amazingly talented, they are extremely educated more so than movie stars in movies. Movie stars make movies a few times a year. These stars make these shows everyday for 5 days a week, 12 months a year. They deserve to be treated with the highest of respect and not to be one day told that their hard work is no longer needed because their shows are going off for talk shows and food related shows. These new shows will undoubtfully have lower ratings and no other show will ever last 40+ years, I don’t care what they put on, they will never be another All My Children or One Life To Live. We will miss Tad, Greenlee, Ryan, David, Jesse, Angie, Madison, Randi and the rest of AMC, a wonderful gifted cast along with the wonderful cast of One Life To Live including but not limited to Robert S.Woods. Save these precious shows….nothing can take their place.

From: Dee

The producers need to wake up and smell the coffee. The viewers of All My Children are avid fans. They are tired of all the reality talk shows. Everyone is thirsty for an escape from the real world and the soaps allow us to do that. Now it’s being stolen from us without caring what the fans want and not even asking them. I will never watch your reality shows and hope that no one else does too. I hope all the commercials pull out too.
Wake up!!!!

From: Adrianna

leave our soaps alone I have tivoed then forever and would appreciate after a hard day being able to sit , relax and enjoy my show.

From: Delores Richmond-Ray

Please save one life to live I have watched one life to live for as long as i can remember. I am retired now and need my soaps moreso. John and natalie must get back together jessica and brody have to reunite. Vicky and clint need to get back together he is the only man can meet her standards. Todd has to get well and have a happily ever after with tea. Blair needs to find a true love maybe cristian ford and langstan.

Boycott  Credit By: CHRISTINA


ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!   If ABC/Disney cannot find space/time for Daytime Dramas All My Children and One Life To Live  well it’s time to BOYCOTT the other shows such as “Dancing With The Stars” and others.  I love DWTS however if they cancel ONE show cancel them all.

It is NOT RIGHT to bring on the new shows and kick our shows to the curb The only fair thing for we fans and Actor to do is BOYCOTT THE WHOLE D-mn network….  Write the sponsors and let them know you are NOT going to buy their products and STOP WATCHING ABC  SHOWS…

Soap Operas Ending

Topic: Daytime Dramas – Soap Operas

It’s been a nice long journey,  we let Soap Operas into our living room everyday,  we  connect with the characters. If a character was called ‘Uncle” we called him Uncle.  Many home would put on a big pot of coffee, call their friends to hurry over because it was show time!   In January,  there will be no more soaps in New York.

The chopping block has landed here in California where the rest of the soaps are being cancelled.  It saddens me to know that my view of the Soaps are not appreciated and that Disney does not give a d-mn about our feelings.

Disney will replace our long beloved soaps with other shows, it great to have those shows on the air,  it’s enough room for all of us.  I do not understand why Disney is hurting us this way.  I am sorry but,  I WILL NOT be watching the new show.

I’m from the old school when I was a kid I would watch The Edge Of Night” with my family, today my favorite Soaps are “ONE LIFE TO LIVE and “DAYS OF OUR LIVES”

We can write the sponsors of the new shows and let them know we are NOT buying their products,  for all SOAP FANS who are hurt by this,  do not give them the satisfaction of giving the new shows high ratings.   There is nothing wrong with “One Life To Live”  Young viewers are tuned in everyday because, they have a young cast as well as a mature cast.  Good bye Soaps We were there with you and for you,  your fans did not let you down.  THE END OF THE ROAD.

Topic: Debbie Morgan – Darnell Williams

Jesse and Angie Hubbard (Darnell Williams, Debbie Morgan) Of All My Children is the first Black Couple on Daytime Television that has expanded for so many years,  it is so sad that the networks are talking cancellation.   I would love to see Actor Darnell Williams (jesse) and Actress Debbie Morgan (angie)  with their own television show,  if AMC is no longer on the air,  black people will not have a couple they can look admire.

I know the show is built around Actress Susan Lucci and I have to admit I love Susan Lucci (erica kane).  We watched Jesse and Angie as teenagers on the show,   we were there when she got pregnant had a baby son,  go to medical school,  got married,  lost her husband, thought he was dead,  raised her son by herself to become and outstanding doctor.

Williams and Morgan should be picked and have a show built just for them,  they both can bring comedy or drama,   It’s nothing the 2 of them can’t handle. You can see the love in their eyes.  They are a strong black couple.

The long running ABC Daytime Drama “All My Children”  is on the chopping block at ABC,  the announcement will be out soon.  Low ratings are the cause of the show getting the boot.

AMC cast and crew did not get a fair run here in California,  I think they were better off in New York,  the way it may work is, if AMC is cancelled,  One Life To Live will be the next set to move to California.

I am a HUGE fan of Days Of Our Lives and,  One Life To Live,  I do not watch AMC because,  I do not like the format at all.  I only watch AMC when I see Jessie and Angie on (Darnell Williams and Debbie Morgan). I would also watch when Carol Burnett would be a guest star on the show.

I know Susan Lucci will not totally move to California because she is a New York native and love where she is from and I can’t blame her at all.  I wish the show all the best however, they need to change the format Yesterday.

If you are a fan of AMC,  You should let everyone know and do what you can to keep the show going for another 41 years. The Soap that should be cancelled is the up-nose Bell Family.  I know my Cousin Aretha whom I’ve never met  is a fan of Victor Newman.

Best Of Luck AMC
