CROONING CAMEOS! IT'S JULIO IGLESIAS

Singer Julio Iglesias is scheduled to make a cameo appearance on "General Hospital" on Thursday and Friday. In the story line, music manager Lois Cerullo (played by Rena Sofer), will take Miguel Morez (played by Ricky Martin) on a tour of a high-tech recording studio during a visit to New York City. Lois will meet and talk with Iglesias, and try to get some facts about Miguel's past from him.

During the Iglesias episodes of "General Hospital," there will be a performance of "Crazy," the Patsy Cline classic that is also the title song of Iglesias' new album.

If Randy Brooks, the newest member of "Another World," looks familiar, it's probably because you have seen him on "The Young and the Restless," where he played the role of Nathan Hastings for the past two years.

On "Another World," Brooks is creating the role of book editor Marshall Lincoln Kramer III. Brooks, who was reduced to a non-contract status on "Young and Restless" in the fall of 1993, had been looking for a full-time acting job when his "Another World" role came along.

In the story line, Marshall and romance writer Felicia Gallant, played by Emmy-winning actress Linda Dano, did not hit it off when she learned he was to be her new book editor. But, if there is one thing you learn after watching a lot of soap operas, it is the fact that the couple who hates each other in the beginning usually ends up being lovers or--at the very least--very good friends. So it could be that there is an interracial romance in the offing for "Another World."

Kimberly McCullough, who plays Robin Scorpio on "General Hospital," recently returned from eight fabulous days in Oahu, Hawaii, where she performed with her high-school dance team.

"We do mainly jazz dance," says McCullough, who adds she has been dancing "since I was born."

According to McCullough, teams gathered from the West Coast for this event. "There were a few teams from the different Hawaiian islands, one from Utah, another from Arizona," she says. "It was sort of an exhibition, because there really weren't enough teams to compete."

Aside from the exhibition, McCullough also got in some quality relaxation time. "That was great," she smiles. "I got to hang out on the beach and go shopping. It was so much fun."

The one thing McCullough didn't come back with was the "souvenir," for lack of a better word, that co-star John J. York (Mac Scorpio) had requested.

"I was supposed to bring him back Maui chips," she says, referring to a popular snack food on the islands. "He says they're great. But I couldn't find them anywhere. Actually, I didn't have any room in my suitcase for anything else. If I had brought them back, I probably would have crushed them anyway."
