Congrats to them— Nice ring.
What I find weird–
Many, not all, but a good many
soap actors marry soap actors..
It’s like they have no other outgoing life
other than what is in their soap world..
Crazy stuff, indeed..
Soap actors marry soap actors—




Well, of course this is nice for them. I just wish their characters were more likeable right now. Sally is becoming cartoonish in her patronizing machinations (what the heck is wrong with Jack?) and Michael is so dull I can barely stay awake when he’s on. How dare he be so cold to Chase but oh-so solicitous to Sasha. Such a hypocrite from a family rife with them!


Soaphound– You asked;
” (what the heck is wrong with Jack?)”
Well. 1st- Jack is a gullible sucker
who hasn’t had a woman in a decade-
so, you know- he’s in need of a nasty LOL
That seems to be the problem, yup.

I think he is smitten with Sally because she reminds him of his “Red” the name he had for his old ex, Phyllis. I don’t think Sally is as bad as Phyllis has been all these years, but give her time. She’s gained a lot of momentum from B&B so maybe they are grooming her to take M.S place if and when she leaves. Couldn’t be too soon for me. Another thought is Sally may have her eye on Jack, as a stepping stone/ future as Jill did years ago by marrying his father John.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
