On-Air On-Soaps favorite soap actress of all-time, Judith Light came in at number six on the list of the 50 Greatest Soap Actresses of All Time, in We Love Soaps countdown released today. Light, gave the single most memorable performance in daytime history with her portrayal of the hooker with the heart of gold, Karen Wolek, on One Life to Live, when she took the witness stand in the infamous Marco Dane murder trial to save her friend Viki.  To this day critics and fans still agree that it was one of the most riveting moments in soap opera history.

Light won two Daytime Emmys for Lead Actress in back to back wins in 1980 and 81. Watch Karen videos after the jump.

Celebrated soap journalist Mimi Torchin ( who voted on the panel) summed it up best.  “No one who ever saw Judith’s work as the long-suffering Karen Wolek is likely to forget it, especially her Llanview-shaking admission on the witness stand that she was a prostitute. Daytime’s rafters shook. Light went on to prime time and film fame, but this Emmy-winning actress never shunned her daytime roots, always acknowledging where she began with pride and grace. Judith’s outspokenness and her support of AID’s research and gay rights before it was fashionable shows that she isn’t only a brilliant actress, but she’s also a woman of substance.”

Michael, thank you once again for the Judith Light courtroom scenes. I was watching OLTL when they first aired. I have never been more affected by an actress since. Judith bared her soul in those scenes. I will never forget it. She should be rated number one not six. I watch her as the DA on Law and Order and on Ugly Betty. She does some great work there, but I keep waiting for a real breakout scene to show up. Maybe the writer’s will focus on this great actress more. Maybe then Ugly Betty wouldn’t be going off the… Read more »

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
