All My Children

Lela M. asks: Is Amanda (ex-Jolene on GH) and Nadine who is playing her sister on GH real sisters in life? They really look alike. We agree, Lela, they do look alike! However, as far as we know, Claire Coffee (GH's Nadine) and Amanda Baker (AMC's Babe) are not related.

As the World Turns

Jessica C. asks: I was wondering if you know what days certain storylines are going to be shown? We are happy to be able to bring the fans advanced spoilers for some of the shows but we don't always know which day certain storylines will be aired.

The Bold and the Beautiful

Lesia H. asks: What is the name of the song they played at the end of Wednesday’s, October 10, 2007 episode? When Brooke and Ridge were going down memory lane and also who sings it? Awesome song, wasn’t it! We’re happy to report it was sung by B&B’s very own Ronn Moss (Ridge) and is titled “Just Once More.” You can learn more about Ronn and his new CD Uncovered by visiting his official website! Enjoy your tour!

Days of Our Lives

Sabrina A. asks: Days of Our Lives is the best soap I have ever liked. I was wondering if there was any way I could get the first episodes on DVD or VHS? I tried looking for them at Best Buys and Blockbuster but never got them. I would really appreciate if you could tell me where to get them. Thank you! Although you’re among many fans that would love to have this type of soap opera memorabilia, we're sorry, as of yet, past episodes of the soaps are not available on DVD or VHS. Should this change for any show, including a href="">Days , we’ll be sure to post about it in our news rooms!

Wyndi D. asks: Tyler is Mimi & Philip's child by surrogacy, right? Well, does Mimi have custody of him? Or does Philip? And are they raising him jointly or what? Yes, you are right. Both Phillip and Mimi signed away their rights, leaving Lauren, the surrogate with custody of Tyler. Although Phillip wanted custody of the boy, he recently let go of him. There won't be a chance of him raising him with Mimi - since the show doesn't have any intentions of bringing her character back.

General Hospital

Shelia E. asks: I don't know if you can help me on this but on General Hospital on Sept 17 there was a scene between Lucky and Sam in a Hot tub they played a song while they were together. How can I find out the name of that song? I have tried everywhere to see the name and who it is by? Hopefully you can help me. Well, Shelia, we have good news and bad news… The good news is, we know the name of that song. It’s titled “Like a song" by Bob Hartry and Avion Blackman and was played throughout that whole week. Bad news is, this is one of those ‘made for ABC’ songs and is not available to the public.

Guiding Light

Glenna H. asks: What is the name of the actor who plays Griggs on the Guiding Light? We’re delighted to have the handsome Darnell Williams playing the role of GL’s Griggs. He’s no stranger to television – or daytime- and has appeared on other soaps including Loving, The City, and All My Children as Detective Jesse Hubbard.

One Life to Live
Joanne T. asks: I love your show! I am a single mother of two. I absolutely loved Timbaland. I want to meet him! I live close to NYC. Please be in touch. I have been a very loyal fan for more than 20 years and love every actor on your show! We agree, Joanne, Timbaland rocked Capricorn in the October 9, 2007 episode! Not only is he an amazing artist, he’s a class act all the way! Although we can’t arrange contact for you, we do advise that you visit Timbaland’s Official Website to see if he’ll be performing at an arena near you! Should you meet him, we’d love to hear about it!


Lorraine D. asks: I have watched Passions for a long time and was wondering why it is not on global anymore? Your website still says what goes on, so I was wondering if it had change channels? Sadly, Lorraine, Passions is no longer on cable in the US and moved to Direct TV back on September 17, 2007. However, it can be viewed on Allarco Entertainment on digital cable or satellite in Canada - and as you noticed, still brings the fans Daily Recaps of the show. Since we know there's nothing like watching your favorite show, Passions has recently become available at the NBC site for a monthly subscription of $19.95. In any case, we hope you'll be able to get your Passions fix soon!

The Young and the Restless

Carol S. asks: Is the baby of Phyllis’s (Michelle Stafford) really her's in real life? And Lauren's (Tracey Bregman) also? While Phyllis and Summer do make quite the cute ‘mother/daughter’ pair, no, the little girl is not Michelle’s real-life daughter. In fact, Michelle doesn’t have any children. As for Lauren and Fen… Again, no, the on-screen connection is only that. However, Tracey Bregman is a mother of two in real-life.
