We Love Soaps,Newcomb on 50 Greatest Soap Actress countdown!

As many know yesterday We Love Soaps revealed its number one actress in its Top 50 countdown of the Greatest Soap Actresses of All Time, in which The Bold and the Beautiful’s, Susan Flannery ( Stephanie) took the top spot.  So On-Air On-Soaps asked the website’s editor-in-chief, (and brainchild of the list), Roger Newcomb to give us his thoughts exclusively on why he decided to put together the countdown and engage a panel of experts for his concept,  as well as his personal thoughts on the final five!   Newcomb and his site truly have cornered the market on being the official soap historical society!  Who doesn’t love that?

Newcomb on why came up with the 50 Greatest Actress  list: “We decided to do the 50 Greatest Actresses countdown because many of us were drawn into daytime as children by some of these performers.  Several of them have never won Emmys and we thought this would be a great way to bring attention to all the talented women daytime has been blessed with over the years.  No single panelist picked their Top 5 in the exact order they finished but two of 14 people had the same five actresses.”

Newcomb on his feelings on the final five actresses who earned the top spots:  “As for the Top 5, I love them all.  Susan Flannery has been wowing daytime audiences since 1996.  Kim Zimmer gave my favorite performance of all time – the “Slut of Springfield” scene.  Erika Slezak has made the same role interesting for 39 years which is not easy.  I started my personal list with the great Beverlee McKinsey.  And Robin Strasser is the most dedicated actress I’ve ever seen.  It’s a shame that many of their classic performances, espcially Strasser and McKinsey on Another World and Flannery on Days of Our Lives, seem to be lost forever.”

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.
