susan_lucci_all_my_children_abcThe world's been spinning like crazy in soaps, with the big-time return of Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo to 'General Hospital' dominating the headlines. But that's not all that's going on! Check out what's been happening around the dial with our Soap wrap-up.

-- Have you been watching -- and enjoying -- 'Hot In Cleveland'? I have, especially the story lines involving Wendie Malick's character, former soap star Victoria Chase, still chasing fame since her show's been canceled. Well, in an upcoming episode, a real soap diva, Susan Lucci, will arrive in Cleveland.

No plot has been revealed as yet, but wouldn't it be cool if Victoria had a rivalry with La Lucci's character from their days on a soap? Sounds like a perfect set up for comedy.

Stirring Tributes for Dick Clark, Agnes Nixon on 2010 Daytime Emmy Awards (VIDEO)

by Aimee Deeken, posted Jun 28th 2010 5:32AM
Tearful Tributes to Dick Clark, Agnes Nixon on 2010 Daytime Emmy AwardsThe 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards (Sun., 9PM ET on CBS) honored entertainment icon Dick Clark with a star-studded tribute recognizing his nearly 40-year TV show, 'American Bandstand.' During the musical roundup, Chubby Checker (who performed on 'Bandstand' in 1960) pulled Susan Lucci onto the stage to do the twist.

Simon Cowell said, "Without 'Bandstand,' without Dick, there would be no 'American Idol.'" Ryan Seacrest told Clark, "I personally want to thank you -- what you've done for our industry, for music and for me. I'm proud to be your friend."

"Did I write that for you?" joked the still-feisty stroke survivor, before tearing up during a standing ovation.

The accolades continued with a Lifetime Achievement Award for Agnes Nixon, creator of 'All My Children' and 'One Life to Live.'

Maura West nabbed Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role in 'As the World Turns' -- her last chance, as the awards show said goodbye to the 53-year-old series. Her tearful daughter joined her onstage, and they thanked the voters with a curtsy.

'The Bold and the Beautiful' crowd seemed shocked to win Outstanding Drama for the second consecutive year. Other surprise wins included 'Cash Cab,' which took home two Emmys, for Game Show and Game Show Host (Ben Bailey). And Oprah Winfrey protege Dr. Mehmet Oz won Outstanding Talk Show Host on 'The Dr. Oz Show.'
