Dianne J. asks: Has the tragic death of Sally Spectra (Darlene Conley) been included in a storyline? If it did, and I missed it, what time frame would that have been? I was wondering how that would be played out. I really miss that character going up against the Forrester’s.
Soaps.com: Although the show never really put her death into a storyline, back on January 26, 2007, The Bold and the Beautiful did a tribute to Sally at the end of that episode. We invite you to read our recap of the episode Beginnings and Farewells under our Daily Updates section.
We, too, miss her dearly, Dianne. There will never be another Sally Spectra…

One Life to Live
William L. asks: Is that Broadway Star Barbara Walsh playing Marcie and Michael's attorney Judy on OLTL? I have seen no mention of this casting and the credits go so fast it is impossible to read.
Soaps.com: Good eye, William, we thought the same thing! Although the actress looks like a dead ringer for Barbara Walsh, One Life to Live hasn’t released the name of the actress playing Judy, nor could we find any credits online to suggest the connection. While Barbara could very well be playing Judy, we can’t say for sure.
Amy G. asks: I saw on your website that we can get Passions online for a fee a month. I called Direct Tv to ask them about it because I want to order the show...

Soaps.com: We’re glad to report as of October 1, 2007, you can now get your Passions online subscription on NBC through their All Access Pass! So enjoy, Amy!

Earlene H. asks: I would love to know about the green top Gloria (Judith Chapman) had on Thursday's episode?
