  1. I can't recall which magazine it was, but one featured a story in 1981 about Edge's 25th anniversary party. The story included a number of photos from the party and Karen Lynn Gorney was included. The article mentioned that Gorney was interested in assuming the role of Nicole.
  2. Rebecca had a daughter named Laura (Gail Ramsey), who was the mother of Monique (Nancy Sorel). Monique and Sam (Kelly Rutherford) were around the same age. Dorothy Lyman is just about one year older than Gail Ramsey. Rebecca also had a son, JD (Gerard Prendergast). They were planning to bring JD back right before the show was cancelled.
  3. I don't recall all the details, but I know Reena and Justin had a connection from the very beginning. I remember a long scene early in the series where they go to KVIK and the camera followed them from the parking lot into the building. I think Reena and Justin made their bet after Justin and Ashley had already gotten married. I know that the character of TJ was supposed to be a love interest for the newly widowed Reena, but the show went in a different direction.
  4. I have no recollection of that. Reena and Justin had a bet at some point where Reena would have to sleep with Justin. I can't see Reena and Grant having a bet like that. Grant didn't learn that Judith could walk until the end of penultimate episode and that continued over to the last episode. Reena had already decided to leave for New York, visited Judith in the penultimate episode, and then Judith revealed to Grant she could walk. After a heart to heart with Grant where Judith told Grant that Reena loved him, Grant rushed to the airport and reunited with Reena on the plane.
  5. No she didn’t. She was in the last episode.
  6. And according to many sources online, Maggie created problems for Pat and Clint. Yes, Pat apparently Clint for a while. After Maggie died, Pat and Clint broke up, and then Pat and Bo got involved.
  7. And wasn't there talk before Edge was cancelled on ABC about shifting the show to 11:30 a.m.?
  8. Dioni Michelle Collins, who plays Deanna, is so talented. What an amazing voice. I've been watching some of the Nurses' Ball numbers and she just impresses me so much. I would love to see her get her own storyline, but have little hope that will ever happen.
  9. The name Margaret DePriest makes me cringe. Right after she assumed head writing duties for DOOL, she had to deal with the aftermath of Brenda Benet's suicide and phase out the character of Lee. I don't know who wrote the script, but as I recall, there was a throwaway line where one character mentioned about cleaning up Lee's bathroom. I found it utterly distasteful as the news reports at that time had stated that Brenda's death had taken place in her bathroom. That line seemed so insensitive and it stunned me that it made it to air.
  10. As a writer/editor, those kinds of mistakes annoy me. That said, thanks for posting these articles. They're fascinating!!
  11. Her name was definitely Jean as show in the screenshot below.
  12. I'm with J Swift here. I really enjoyed the character of Madeline who was so fascinating to me unlike her drippy sister Courtney. It was such a treat to see Terry Davis playing such a devious character after years of her portraying April on The Edge of Night. By the by, Terry did later show up in a recurring role on Sunset Beach.
  13. I just read that Vana now goes by the name Vaughn Taylor. And she's married to Paul Tinder who played the role of Jerry Grove on Another World and Larry Watts on The Edge of Night.
  14. My vote would be for Linda Borgeson. Her acting was painful to watch. I never saw Courtney during her original run, so Susan Harney was my first introduction to the character of Alice. I don't recall seeing Pfenning in the role except for a brief clip online. I enjoyed Vana Tribbey in the role and never understood why she was replaced by Borgeson. It's a shame that they so underutilized Jacquie Courtney in her 1984-85 stint as she really shined in the role.
  15. Alice and Sally were still on the canvas when Lemay departed in May 1979. Wesley Ann Pfenning assumed the role of Alice in early April while Julie Phillips joined as Sally in mid-April.
  16. I agree 100%. Krimmer was powerful as Andrew, especially in the homophobia storyline in 1992. I can still see him holding his brother William’s quilt panel, and the image of the pages of the Bible fluttering in the wind as a homophobic man pummeled Andrew. Such a powerful story, made so poignant by Krimmer’s performance.
  17. I’m glad they never had the chance to go that route. We really didn’t need CC to have another son. Can’t sleep here either!
  18. I thought they actually revealed in 1992 that he wasn’t Lionel’s son. That erased the incest between Warren and Cassandra as the change meant they were no longer related.
  19. That's my recollection too -- in the summer of 1985, Nancy started taking Ecstasy after Perry's death and Chris Chapin helped her get off drugs. The synopses on the Another World Home Page discuss Nancy buying and taking drugs, but not selling them. Carter and Thomasina were dealing with the drama of her pregnancy at that time and I believe Carter was involving in unwittingly running drugs for a dealer. Hunter Bradshaw, who was involved with Ben and Marley, was long gone by that time. But they did plan to bring back Rachel's sister Pammy Davis. It was sometime around 1988. There were reports in Soap Opera Digest at that time about the show casting the role. There were a lot of stories in Soap Opera Digest at that time about characters that never made it to air: for example, Pammy, Jason Frame's two daughters, a model named Bliss.
  20. There's currently an outbreak on Cape Cod -- about 430 COVID cases linked to Provincetown (where we're headed in just a few weeks). Despite the fact that the town board called an emergency meeting to address the outbreak and the fact that over 150 P-Town residents have tested positive in recent days, we're seeing some residents on social media actually denying the cluster. Rather they're spouting theories that it's a conspiracy by the MAGA crowd and/or anti-gay people to hurt the town and the LGBTQ community. It blew my mind to read those posts today.
  21. The bulletin boards were in force at that time and there was a lot of discussion about soaps on those boards. I remember stumbling across the boards in 1993 and seeing the heated discussions about who should replace Beverlee McKinsey as Alex and fans’ disgust about a possible Austin/Jennifer pairing on DOOL. And there was discussion about the Loving Murders. It was a wonderful precursor to what we have today.
  22. Which writer handled David Bachman's fatal heart attack? That scene is my only memory of HTSAM. It's good to hear that Edelstein did such a solid job as I wasn't impressed with his short stint as head writer of The Doctors in 1969.
  23. Ravens, like Brennan Reeves, is from New Jersey. His father was a physician at the then Rutgers Medical School. My late Aunt Mary worked with Dr. Ravens. There was a lot of press in NJ when Brennan and Ravens were cast on Santa Barbara. I believe Ravens was in his late 20s when he was cast.
