    Mary Ellen Stuart competed alongside Bobbie Eakes at Miss America in September 1982. Oddly enough they would both start on CBS Daytime within months of each other. Here's a video of both of them being announced amongst the top 10 (Bobbie was announced first, Mary Ellen was announced at 1:12).

  3. Bradley Bell followed his sister in law MAB in recasting Ridge and Thorne with ABC leftovers. Zack Slater and Jasper Jacks are not cutting it. Put on your casting director hats and recast the Forrester sons. Maybe this board could come up with better choices.

    20 years ago this week (starting at 4:36). Original airdate was Friday October 3, 1997 according to an old online recap site. This was the scene shown from Cynthia Watros's Emmy reel during the 1998 Daytime Emmy broadcast. I'm thinking the other episode submitted was the witness stand breakdown from June 1997. Watch those two scenes and you'll see why the 1998 Lead Actress race ended up being the biggest upset ever.
  8. When B&B began, Ronn Moss was 35 and Clayton Norcross was 32, so they weren't that far apart in age. The recast Thornes were a good amount younger than RM; Jeff Trachta was 8 years younger and Winsor Harmon was 11 years younger. Bradley Bell must have forgotten that Ridge was the older brother when he recast Ridge with Thorsten Kaye, as TK is actually 2 1/2 years younger than WH. So with Ingo Rademacher coming on board as Thorne, at least Ridge will now look like the older brother LOL.

    Maybe JFP's plan was to bring on Marcy Walker to pair her with Josh, then have Kim Zimmer return shortly after, creating a Tangie/Josh/Reva triangle. To think if the Josh/Tangie pairing took off, we might not have gotten Annie the following year.

    Rick Hearst left in 1996. JFP was already gone by then.

    JFP brought in a good number of Santa Barbara alums to GL during her run: Vincent Irizarry, Justin Deas, Marj Dusay, Marcy Walker. Am I missing anyone? I know JFP was around when Alan was recast but surprisingly that role went to a virtual unknown instead of a known soap actor. I believe JFP was already gone when Amanda was recast and that role also went to a virtual unknown. I've read some big soap names were considered when Amanda was recast in 1995; among them were Kimberlin Brown, Crystal Chappell, Nancy Lee Grahn, Lauren Koslow, Lisa Peluso.
  13. 20 years ago this week I know one of the episodes from this week was used for Eileen Davidson's 1998 Emmy reel as the clip was shown on the broadcast. I don't know what the other episode was though.
  14. That was 20 years ago this week. I can't find the ratings for June 23-27, 1997 online anywhere so I don't know what the exact difference between Y&R and Days was. The ratings for the previous week (June 16-20, 1997) are on this board and there was a 1 point gap between Y&R and Days that week.

    20 years ago this month: From recaps I found online, the exact airdate was either June 19 or June 20.
