Congrats, Jake! This is absolutely amazing.

This play is a must see for me because Jake Silbermann in a play with vampires is just my kind of play! Can’t wait to see him live on stage. It will be epic.

I’m happy for Jake even though i always was a LuRe fan.But he’s a good guy and is deserving .Now if i know for sure that Van Hansis will go to see this play because they are friends , I’ll go.I like Jake but my heart will always belong to Van!

If Van goes I’m sure he’ll want the attention on Jake. They’re good friends, so they kinda like to support each other. And Van’s in LA now, so…

Since when did this become about Van or LuRe? I can care less if you are a LuRe fan, but what that has to do with Jake? Jake is not a part of ATWT anymore and neither is LuRe. I love Van to pieces and I am looking forward to his film but this play has nothing to do with Van. I am sure Van will support Jake. Why do people have to remind everyone that they like Van better than Jake? Jake got an awesome part for God sake. Just be happy for him and be done with it. Nobody will take your big Van/LuRe fan sticker away. Anyways why would you go to a play just to see one of the featured actors friends?

I do like Jake and am happy for him.I must admit after i read my words they didn’t sound right even to me! It will take a while to separate these actors from ATWT, but we long time fans are doing it slowly but surely!

Seems like Jake should take your advice, considering he hijacked Van’s radio interview last week to promote himself.

@Connie

If Van had any problems with Jake calling in or what not he would have told him so by probably saying I’ll talk to ya later. However, he didn’t cut Jake off but instead they got caught up since it had been awhile since they had talked. Also Jake didn’t promote himself since I seem to remember that it was Van who asked Jake about the play. So what was Jake supposed to do not answer Van’s question. So I really don’t understand what your problem is with Jake because I doubt he’s done anything to you.

I saw Jake on a we love soaps interview.I was impressed with him as himself.He’s very attractive and personable and has a lovely sense of humor.i’m glad I got to see him as himself because i never liked the character of Noah! he seems so excited with his film and his future!

Apparently when the officer went up to the driver’s side window they noticed that Zach’s slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and say he, “reeked of booze”.

Roerig was arrested for  for a misdemeanor and was held overnight in a holding cell.  He was later released.

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.

Former Loving, OLTL and Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, did point out how the once powerful soaps, just don’t have the dollars they used to, and need to, to help with production costs and their taping schedule.

Viewers were reminded of soaps’ socially relevant storylines including hankie-inducing moments from: Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) HIV/AIDS storyline on General Hospital, to Billy Douglas being a gay teen coming out on One Life to Live, played by a young Ryan Phillippe.

There also did not seem time spent on the contributions of William J. Bell; one of the most prominent writers of the soap genre of all-time.

For many commenting on social media last night, there seemed to be a feeling of some glaring omissions of participants who could speak on this genre, who have been in the trenches as soap producers, soap writers, pundits, actors, and more, who were not included in the special.

So, what was your review of The Story of Soaps? How would you grade it? Do you feel it accurately reflected the history of the genre?  Were you happily surprised,  or when it came to the end where you over it, or somewhere in between? Sound off in the comment section below.  Below are some tweets from notables who have worked as an actor, a writer, and a journalist in the soaps.
