What were the biggest, best, breaking soap news stories of the past decade?  Well, the list is a doozy and some couldn’t even fit into our top 15!  Tv Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco, and On-Air On-Soaps, Michael Fairman in Branco’s latest Soapgeist column finished out their look back at soaps in Y2K with probably the most controversial category of them all.

In at number one, Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn fired from DAYS, in second place, Y&R’s Eric Braeden quits after a pay-cut showdown.  Third was the decade’s saddest turn, as both P&G soaps, As the World Turns and Guiding Light were canned by CBS.  Fourth runner-up goes to Homophobia run wild- Chris Engen walks out of his role as Adam on Y&R and One Life’s Patricia Mauceri kind of did, too! Fifth place, ABC saving All My Children and moving it to LA and keeping the awesome One Life to Live stationed in New York!  Six, was the messy Dena Higley-gate at DAYS.  In at seven, the notorious writer’s strike!  For the rest of the Top 15 list click here!
