According to the AWHP, Cecile was there in May 1993 and Sandy in June & July, so there was no overlap. According to Wikipedia Nancy Frangione and Chris Rich divorced in 1996. Hard to say when they might have separated.
Cecile was also onscreen between October 1995 and June 1996.
We've talked about this in the past, but Bob Woods has vacillated over the years when talking about Jacquie Courtney as have a number of castmembers. (I've always found Erika Slezak's quiet asides re: her and Stuart especially interesting - "once Joe Stuart was gone, I knew I had job security.") He's sometimes been very complimentary and kind about her, particularly when she passed. The impression I got is that some of the OLTL cast - or perhaps just the more rough and tumble Buchanan actors, who were known to not always be big on discipline back in the day - found Courtney high-maintenance. I imagine the truth is somewhere in-between for all parties.
When exactly did Rauch arrive? Fall of '84 or earlier? Because depending on when Courtney exited in '83 (allegedly December), he might've already been in the mix. That happens at these shows often BTS before the credits catch up. I always assumed Rauch was the answer to why she was cut, but that may well be untrue.
When did Nancy & Chris Divorce. Maybe he didnt wanna return in 93 cause she was there for those few shows
There were rumors that Nancy and Chris only renewed their deals once AW replaced Laura Malone as Blaine
Chris Rich was asked back for the 25th anniversary episodes in 1989 but declined. Not sure if he was asked back again for the Maggie story.
The talk at the time was that P&G refused to let her return for the final episode as they were still pissed that she got one over on them at GL.
