"All My Children's Stephanie Gatschet (Madison)
Soaps.com: How long did it take you to get ready today?
Stephanie: There were separate phases. I went to one hotel to get my hair and makeup done. That took a little over an hour and then I just had to go home and put my clothes on, so I would say a little over an hour.
Soaps.com: Did it take you a long time to figure out which dress to wear?
Stephanie: No. I actually happened upon this dress when I was shopping with my mom for a dress my mom needed and it was hanging on a rack all by itself, completely out of place. I saw it and I loved it and I tried it on and it fit and it didnâ€™t need any alterations. It was the easiest dress I've ever had in my life.
Soaps.com: Nice! How do you like having the Emmys in Vegas?
Stephanie: I think it's fun. Vegas is a party so it's a perfect place to celebrate.
Soaps.com: What have you been doing since you've been here?
Stephanie: We went out to dinner last night. A bunch of us from "All My Children" went out to celebrate J.R. Martinez's [Brot] birthday, which was this week. And then we went outâ€¦one of the agencies threw a party, just kind of out on the town kind of stuff.
Soaps.com: Who are you rooting for tonight?
Stephanie: Everybody. I'm rooting for "All My Children" of course, for our show. I'm rooting, mainly for everyone to have a good time and celebrate the hard work that's been done by everybody.
