Tuesday night, January 18th in West Hollywood, California, the stars of daytime gathered for On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman’s 50th Birthday celebration.  The bash was filled with soap performers near and dear to Fairman’s heart.

The invited guests drank, cavorted, tasted some hors d’oeuvres, listened to some cool tunes from the DJ playing 70’s R&B and Soul tunes, and ate the Birthday cake which had two sides to it – one all chocolate and the other white cake with banana creme filling and chocolate, too.  Yummy!

Those in attendance included from Days of our Lives, Peter Reckell, Galen Gering, Shawn Christian, Nadia Bjorlin, Molly Burnett, Mark Hapka, Shelley Hennig, Casey Deidrick, Chandler Massey.  From Y&R, Christian LeBlanc, Sean Kanan, Thom Bierdz, and Kate Linder.  GH was represented by Lexi Ainsworth, Carolyn Hennesy, and Megan Ward.  B&B’s Brandon Beemer and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood also enjoyed the party, as did several members of the cast of The Bay including Mary Beth Evans, Real Andrews, Jade Harlow, Martha Madison, Lilly Melgar, Matthew Ashford, Kristos Andrews, Marie Wilson and producer/writer Gregori J. Martin.  The Venice peeps were there, too! Writer/producer, Kim Turrisi, Michelle N. Carter, and Harrison White. Being Erica’s and On-Air On-Soaps Podcast regular, Dillon Casey stopped by, and the amazing Daytime Emmy award winning Tamara Braun, who has formerly appeared on DAYS, GH and AMC also hung out at the celebration.

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.

Share your remembrances and condolences for Mary Linda in the comment section.
