    ABC Soap Stars: Got Milk!

    We’ve all heard of the popular saying, “Got Milk,” and have been amused to see all of the different star-clad posters with the focal point being that little white milk mustache. Well guess what? Soap stars drink milk too!

    In the latest "Got Milk" splash, three ABC soap stars have recently posed together for the nationwide campaign, which will be featured in your local grocer’s checkout aisle in the soap magazine section!

    All My Children’s Bobbie Eakes (Krystal), General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Liz) and One Life to Live’s Kassie DePaiva (Blair) were the lucky ones chosen to participate in the latest “Got Milk” ad! Created by Goodby Silverstein and Partners in 1993, the crusade attempts to encourage people nationwide to add milk as a healthy choice to their diets. In turn, since the ad was license in October of 1993, it has attributed to an increase in milk sales, bringing those involved out of a twenty-year slump!

    Although we can’t be sure if the company plans to include more soap stars in the future, is very excited to see that these three ladies can wear a good mustache like the rest of those who appeared before them! Congrats girls!

    I got my copy of Soap Opera Digest on Friday and got all three girls autographs on it on Saturday, great timing that they were all in town for the weekend in Nashville. None of them had even seen the ad.

    These ladies shot the ad in Manhattan in January. The apparently had big fun getting together to do this and liked learning what the secret ingredient is to make the milk mustache. It's philly cream cheese, Haagen-Daz vanilla ice cream, sour cream and a little yogurt. To apply it, they actually take a sip of the stuff from a cup and make sure that it sticks to their lip two-thirds of the way up to the nose! They listened to music from Sugarland during the photo shoot.

    Fun huh?

    Milk? I thought orange juice was the official drink of ABC soaps --- or at least the two that tape in NYC. There are glasses of orange juice shown so often that it is ridiculous. Based on the end credits, they are being paid by the Florida Citrus commission for this, but it has gotten to be a bit much.
