Roll out the red carpet. Two more stars are coming to Chattanooga for "The Ultimate Girls' Weekend Out."

"The Doctors" physician Travis Stork and "Days of Our Lives" star Deidre Hall are the newest additions to She: An Expo for Women on July 27 and 28 at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

"Both Deidre and Travis are great additions to round out this year's She Expo," said Jason Taylor, president and general manager of the Chattanooga Times Free Press. "Deidre is a legend in daytime television with a huge following in our area, while Travis brings an entertaining, fun approach to living a healthier, more fulfilling life. She Expo will definitely have a little something for all the women in attendance."

The duo of television personalities will take the stage July 28. At 2:45 p.m., Hall will take photos with fans and sign books available for purchase on-site, while Stork will give a speech and take audience questions at 4 p.m.

Stork, when not in the emergency department, writes guest columns for Men's Health magazine. He is a best-selling author of "The Lean Belly Prescription" and "The Doctor Is In: A 7-Step Prescription for Optimal Wellness." His television show, "The Doctors," has won an Emmy.

Hall, known for her role as Dr. Marlena Evans, was named the "Best Television Role Model" in 1994 by American Women in Radio and Television. She has won five Best Actress awards from Soap Opera Digest in her multi-decade career.

The duo will join fellow TV stars Caroline Manzo of the Bravo TV Series "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," "Duck Dynasty" doyenne Kay Robertson and a plenty of shopping opportunities.

"One thing past attendees have asked for is more shopping, and we will deliver," Taylor said. "There will be plenty of the latest in fashion and accessories and more on hand."
