If there is ever any doubt about how amazing the bond between soap stars and their fans one needs to look no further than yesterday’s visit by Kim Zimmer to Canonsburg, Pennsylvania resident, Donna Lee Sullivan.   KDKA-TV and Celebrity Events Group, promoter, Mike Gold, brought together Zimmer with Donna Lee, whose greatest wish was to meet, “Reva” from Guiding Light.   You can watch the video here and the photo gallery of the meeting here.

Both Sullivan and her husband are deaf, but Zimmer had no problems communicating with them when she surprised them at their home.  And sadly, for more than two years, Sullivan has battled breast cancer. Doctors have given her two to six months to live, which made this meeting all the more poignant.   “Can she read my lips? I want to give you tickets to our show so that you can come on-stage and hug everybody there,” Zimmer told Sullivan.  Later this month, 11 soap stars from various shows, including Zimmer, will be in Pittsburgh for the KDKA-TV Soap Star Spectacular on June 13th at the Petersen Events Center.

“That’s devotion, that’s devotion,” said Zimmer of Sullivan. “When you get called on or asked to do something like this, you can’t say no.”  Sullivan shed a lot of tears too, but like Zimmer’s, they were tears of joy.

TODAY: Ron Carlivati’s Dad Appears on DAYS

Be on the lookout on Friday’s October 18th episode of Days of our Lives for one of the shows “superfans” who pops in Salem.  That is when the father of DAYS head writer, Ron Carlivati appears as an extra on the NBC soap opera.

Carlivati Sr., who is very proud of his son, looks to be donning a medical lab coat as a physician in a photo shared on social media along with Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), one of Salem’s most busy and most respected doctors.

Ron told SOD about his dad appearing on the show that he writes: “It’s funny because I’ve been in soaps for over 20 years and my dad would watch to see my name on the credits but rarely get into the show. Somehow, I don’t know what clicked in for him, he’s obsessed with Days of our Lives. He does not miss it.”

As to how his dad became an extra for the day: “We were at the studio and Albert Alarr, our co-executive producer, comes up and meets my parents and turns to my dad and says, ‘We’re gonna be shooting some scenes in the hospital next. How would you like to be in them?’ I honestly had no idea this was coming. I also fainted.”
