"I worked on 'The Young And The Restless,' and I was fired because I was terrible," Potter told Craig Ferguson in a 2010 interview (below) at the 4:23 mark. "I had to dance in like a bathing suit and, you know, they put all this paint on you, like you're supposed to be tan and there's music in the background, but there's not really music ... I just couldn't do it."
Check out the full photo of Potter in her early soap days below:
Luckily, Potter's luck has turned around since her soap days. The actress went on to have a successful film career in the early 2000s. But in between that time and when she landed her "Parenthood" role, she »

The best award shows have their dubious moments, and the 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards — which Snicks lovingly liveblogged last night– simply teemed with unexpected and bizarre moments that brought the best (and weirdest) out of many presenters. I also enjoyed planned hilarity like Kathy Griffin‘s presenter speech, in which she quoted four lines of nutty dialogue from nominated soap operas and Betty White‘s tribute to the late game show producer Bob Stewart. But here are five wacky moments I’m still thinking about.
1. Carrie Fisher’s wild introduction to the Best Animated Show category is inspiring, drug-fueled, and maybe poetic.
Carrie Fisher, the goddess who once composed my favorite tweet of all time (and I quote: “Oh BiPolar the way I’m on Letterman tonight w/ my peers Rihanna & Zac Efron pray 4 me”), introduced the Best Animated Show category. Struck me as apparent that she was »

Beverly Hills, Calif. — "Days of Our Lives" won drama series honors for just the second time in 40 years at the Daytime Emmys in a rough-hewn ceremony that included more upsets and an envelope mix-up on Sunday night.

Oops! A daytime TV star pulled a major no-no June 16. Find out what went down!
Daytime television prides itself on being unpredictable — soaps are always running in the HollywoodLife.com office — and apparently, that same element of surprise translates to the Daytime Emmy Awards!
“In Memoriam”s on any awards show always bring up fond memories of great acting legends. And the tribute to soap legend Jeanne Cooper of The Young and the Restless, who died May 8, was no different — except it was. Fellow Y&R actress Jess Walton, along with Jeanne’s son Corbin Bernsen, presented a tribute to the soap legend and it caught everyone by surprise.

“Oh s**t, I’m on the In Memoriam list!” Corbin first said about what his mom would be thinking of the celebration of her life. He then added more Jeanne commentary with, »

NBC’s “Days of Our Lives” took the gold for drama series at the 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards on Sunday.
The win marked the first time since 1975 that the sudser has won the top prize at the Daytime Emmy fete — and only its second drama series nod in its nearly 50-year run on NBC. And to make it that much sweeter, the victory coincided with the birthday of “Days” exec producer Ken Corday (pictured above).
“Pinch me,” he said. “Today is a great day to celebrate.”
“We’ve pulled ourselves up from the outer reaches of daytime television,” Lucas said in accepting the kudo for the Cartoon Network animated series. He thanked »

You were among the founding cast members of a still-running serial 26 years ago ... and now, you finally have your first Daytime Emmy nomination.
It's a "Beautiful" thing.
Whatever the outcome, Katherine Kelly Lang of CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" is celebrating her bid for outstanding supporting actress at the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy Awards. Hln will televise the event Sunday, June 16, from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
"The Bold and the Beautiful" has 15 nominations overall this year, including outstanding drama series, while its sister CBS soap "The Young and the Restless" - also made by Bell Phillip Television Productions - leads all nominees with 23 nods.
In the tradition of long-running daytime drama heroines, Lang's Brooke Logan has been through just about everything, from being held hostage to becoming pregnant by her sister's husband. The morning of the Daytime Emmy nomination announcement, Lang wasn't expecting anything.
PBS and CBS scored the most wins during the 40th annual Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Friday night, taking home 13 awards each.

DeGeneres’ syndie yakker, a perennial Daytime Emmy darling, won a craft and technical awards as well as a nod for directing a talkshow or morning program, in a tie with NBC’s “Today.”
“Sesame Street” took the statuette for preschool program as well as writing and directing for a children’s program. Kevin Clash, the puppeteer who left the show last November after more than 20 years as the beloved Elmo character amid revelations about his sexual relations, won for performer in a children’s program. He also shared in the directing award for “Sesame Street” with three others: Ken Diego, Joey Mazzarino and Matt Vogel.

Social issues, disease, death and musical numbers are all familiar territory on primetime television — and fodder for awards — so it should not be a surprise that some of the past year’s most poignant moments of daytime TV cover that very same ground.
“What we can do, which sets us apart and makes this genre unique, is to explore all of the moments of the story and all of the beats and feel like the audience hasn’t missed a moment of the emotional journey that the characters are going through,” says “General Hospital” exec producer Frank Valentini.
This year, there were certainly many moments worth exploring. On CBS’ “The Bold and the Beautiful,” fans said a final goodbye to one of its original cast members in November with the death of Stephanie Forrester (Susan Flannery).
“I was so proud of that whole story,” says exec producer Brad Bell. “It »

For a while there, Kristen Bell and Zach Braff had us thinking that all a celebrity had to do to make money on Kickstarter was just show up. Post a pitch video on the crowdfunding website and voila, fans shower you with dollars like rose petals.
If only that were true. As some other stars who have followed in their footsteps have found out, fame offers no immunity from failure when it comes to getting millions to finance passion projects. There doesn’t seem to be any one reason why that is, but pointing out the many pitfalls may protect the inevitable next wave of entrants before they suffer similar consequences.

Although debates about gun control gained more traction in the wake of shootings at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school in December, the issue of mental illness also re-entered the public conversation. In primetime, mental illness has been in the mix of social issues showrunners address head-on in serious dramas.
“There are still shows that focus simplistically on making ‘crazy’ people violent or comedic,” says Dr. Carole Lieberman, a media psychiatrist who’s also been a consultant on TV shows, including daytime soaps “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.” “Other shows make the effort to go beyond the stereotypes and create characters with specific mental illnesses.”
Lieberman says symptoms don’t appear out of nowhere, and TV shows that explain how they developed — in childhood trauma or through specific adult experiences — paint a more realistic picture.
