Soap Star Sean Kanan Busted for DUI

Soap stars must want it to be known that they love their booze too!

A day after TMZ.com reported that General Hospital's Kirsten Storms was busted for allegedly cruisin' while boozin', the site reports that former General Hospital and The Bold and the Beautiful star Sean Kanan was arrested on suspicion of DUI on August 18. The Karate Kid III star was charged in Los Angeles with driving under the influence of alcohol and driving with a blood alcohol of .08 or greater. He'll face a judge on September 17.

This is the second strike against him -- he was convicted of DUI in 1998. But, judging byNicole Richieand Lindsay Lohan's sentences, he'll probably do an hour in the can... or duck jail time all together.

I've actually met Sean on a number of occasions and he's a nice guy. One time -- the first time we ever spoke -- I had the uncomfortable job of asking him to go on the record about fathering a love child with his costar Gladis Jiminez. It was a pretty scandalous situation at the time -- I believe a DNA test was involved -- and he wasn't talking about it at all. But I was told I had to ask... and I did. I was terrified. So I pulled the receiver away from my ear, I didn't want to hear if he yelled at me, and just asked my question. After a little bit of a huff -- but no screaming! -- he gave me a quote. I later interviewed him two more times and he was completely charming, candid and lovely.

Charming, lovely -- yes. But, to be perfectly frank, I'm so friggin' glad I don't have to ask him about his arrest. The kid question took a good year off my life.
