ABC Super Soap Weekend

Super Soap Weekend BannerThe final ABC Super Soap Weekend was very bittersweet for soap fans that have converged at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida for the last thirteen years to get a glimpse, and up close and personal with their favorite actors and actresses from the ABC Daytime line-up. Many of those sentiments were echoed by the actors as well, who have enjoyed the tradition of the event.

“On-Air On-Soaps” special coverage of Super Soap Weekend features video interview clips with the stars and the fans, and behind-the-scenes footage. Check out the two-part feature on what your favorites had to say as well, in the special SSW Star Round Up. And don’t miss the photo gallery below, with memorable moments from the final Super Soap.

Highlights of the weekend included The Casting Call, hosted by Cameron Mathison, where members of the audience audition with our host for a spot in the finale opposite another leading man from the soaps. In the edition we attended, “OLTL’s” John-Paul Lavoisier, was the guest star who brought the ladies to their knees. Over at the Super Soap Talk Show, Bob Guiney, hosted cast talk shows and special group panels from, “Heartbreakers” to “Schemers”. Throughout the day, motorcade processions, featuring the stars with Disney’s most recognizable characters, drove down Hollywood Blvd to the Hat stage where they were interviewed for the outdoor crowd. Of course, all the autograph lines were hopping. Those who got in line in the wee hours of the morning scored a “Fast Pass” so they could collect lots of memories and signatures as quickly as they could.

The Colgate Total Triple Play Game Show, with host John-Paul Lavosier, tested actor’s ability to play charades and soap trivia that always brought down the house. The event closed each night with the Street Jam, where stars performed musical numbers that wowed the packed crowd well into the night. From Ricky Paull Goldin’s, Magic Carpet Ride, to Bobbie Eakes 60’s revolution, and Susan Lucci’s Tango, it was sad to have the final curtain come down closing the festivities for good.

Alice Hunter Done at Y&R

It looks like it’s a wrap, at least for now, for Alice Hunter who joined The Young and the Restless in the role of Kerry under Mal Young’s tenure with the series.

Alice took to Twitter to confirm her exit from the series after much speculation online, by stating:  “To all asking – yes, Kerry is taking an indefinite hiatus. She earns it though you’ll see soon enough. I LOVE the arc, even if I’m sad to leave. And yes, a bunch of #YR cast & crew surprised me Friday and it was something I’ll never forget,”

She also gave special mention in a subsequent tweet to some of those performers in the cast that Hunter considers her mentors: Peter Bergman (Jack) and Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) with who she shares screen-time with.   Alice expressed: “My mentors. My friends. This journey has been indescribable.”

As Y&R viewers know, Kerry was a highly regarded chemist who came on to the scene following Ashley Abbott’s (Eileen Dsvidson) departure from Paris, and became involved with Jack Abbott and worked alongside Jabot CEO, Phyllis.

No word yet as to when Hunter will make her final Y&R appearance on-screen.

So, what do you think about the exit of Alice Hunter from The Young and the Restless? Are more exits forthcoming under the new regime in Genoa City? Comment below.
