The Young and the Restless, Michelle Stafford hosted a private get-together Thursday evening attended by some of the biggest names in daytime including: Days of our Lives, James Scott, Sarah Brown, Peter Reckell, Arianne Zuker, and Patrick Muldoon, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn, The Young and the Restless, Christian LeBlanc, Jessica Collins, Stacy Haiduk, Kate Linder.

The event was to introduce the soap community to the efforts of The Earth Organization which is independent, grass roots, international non-profit, conservation and environment organization, with new solutions, committed to the creative, responsible rehabilitation of Planet Earth and the plant and animal kingdoms.

Special guest of the evening, Barbara Wiseman from The Earth Organization, informed those in attendance of the damage that is happening in the Gulf of Mexico from the Gulf Oil disaster and how it is not cleaned up.  And because of that, the Gulf is still in extremely bad shape, due to toxic chemicals that are still being sprayed, which are severely affecting the marine life, wildlife, and people living in the Gulf. However, Wiseman says that the organization has identified a solution to rectify the damages.

Michelle Stafford spoke to On-Air On-Soaps on why it was important for her to bring awareness of the organization to the soap community: “What people need to know is what is really happening in the Gulf.  It has been swept under the rug.  People have forgotten everyone in the Gulf.  There are people still dealing with this now, just like they did after Katrina.  We can’t keep on forgetting about people. It’s about us as a group and this country. We need to do something about this.  I am so moved about this cause, because people don’t know, and should know, that there is this toxic substance that in the water, and that oil is still in the water. Our marine life is dying and people have gotten sick. Everything is going to be found out. We will do something, but it has to happen with a group.  So by having this get-together tonight, I wanted to start something.  I brought soap actors with big twitter accounts! (Laughs).  But really, I invited those from daytime who are very environmentally and socially conscious.

You will be hearing more from those in attendance and some of your favorite daytime stars in the coming days on how you can become involved and help The Earth Organization and learn more.  For now you can visit www.theearthorganization.org for more information.

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

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.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.
