Now THIS is a true star and living legend. The memories I have of Lisa and Bob and the Hughes kitchen with Nancy in apron and high heels! Such a warm feeling. And Eileen was the first true daytime diva, larger than life. And all those husbands could barely hold the screen with her. I’m looking forward to seeing what she’s up to now.

Soaphound,
You are so right. Maura West must have been watching very closely on ATWT because she comes very close to having Eileen’s chops. Two great actresses.

I cannot wait for this. I’d been hoping for ages that someone would interview Eileen since ATWT left the air. Also, I was so overjoyed when Alan interviewed Rosemary Prinz recently. These two were the reason I loved ATWT for so long.

LISA was the original soap diva. Up there with Erica Kane. How many kitchen table conversations did Lisa and Nancy Hughes have over the years? I know Procter and Gamble doesn’t want to be in the soap business anymore but wouldn’t it be grand if CBS or someone would order a limited series of As the World Turns much like Peacock recently did with Days?

Great news! I’ve always been a fan of Fulton. We haven’t seen much of her since ATWT was cancelled in 2010. I’m looking forward to viewing the interview and hearing her remarks.
