Soaps.com answers their mailbag! (New!)
Ginny G. asks: Where did the picture that is in Zack and Kendall’s home by the front door come from. My husband and I love the picture. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I record the soap everyday and we are constantly saying how we love that picture. Any information would be greatly appreciated. P.S. Cameron, you keep having my vote for you on Dancing with the Stars.
Soaps.com: We too love that picture, Ginny! Unfortunately, we don’t know where the show’s prop team picked it up. However, you can contact the show to see if they have that information available. You might get a better response by writing through mail, maybe even address the letter like so:
All My Children
Attention: Alicia Minshew (Kendall)
77 West 66th St. New York,
Or email them at:
Good luck! Be sure to let us know if you find out!
Nancy H.asks: Does anyone know why I can’t find a web site for Julia Rose Barr? She was my favorite on A.M.C. I know she’s off the show but I would like to contact her? Big mistake to let her go!
Soaps.com: We miss Julia too, Nancy, and are happy we’re able to provide you with your favorite actress’s website. Here it is at Julia Rose Barr.com
Rachel C. asks: Just wondering if you were going to post any photos from the Daytime Fights Pancreatic Cancer event from 12/06/07?
Soaps.com: Hi Rachel. Unfortunately, we weren’t present at this year’s event, so we are unable to provide you with pictures – and couldn’t find any available for you to view online. Sorry we couldn’t be of more help!
Kim L. asks: Who actually owns B&B and Y&R? Bell Productions or CBS /SONY?
Soaps.com: Great question, Kim! While Bell-Phillip Television Productions, Inc. produces the Bold and the Beautiful, it is recorded at CBS Television City in Hollywood, California. This same fine line goes for The Young and the Restless… It’s Produced by CPT Holdings, Inc. but recorded at CBS Television City in Hollywood, California. As for which company owns which rights, we can’t be sure but assume there are many different factors that play into this.
Tina M. asks: Did Peter Reckell become a daddy yet? If so, I hope mom and dad and baby are doing well!

Karen B. asks: You played a song sang when the service for Emily was in the church. Could you tell me the name of the song and who sang it. It touched my heart… you see, my son died this past September. He was only 30 years old and I’d like to get that song. Thank you!
Soaps.com: Karen, we are so sorry for your loss. Please accept our sincerest sympathies. We are happy to tell you that the song played at Emily’s funeral is titled “Mark’s Song” by Eastmountainsouth off their self-titled CD. Although you can purchase this CD from Amazon, you may be able to have your local music store order it in for you – if they don’t already have it stocked! We are glad to have helped you locate this touching song.
Pamela R. asks: Why don't you make full episodes of all of the CBS daytime soap operas such as Guiding Light, The Young and the Restless, As the World Turns and Bold and the Beautiful available to watch their full episodes online? Some of us work and we are not home to catch them, and NOT everyone likes the pod cast idea. Tnt.tv has done it with the TV show "Charmed" and it is amazing. I think that this would make hundreds of thousands of viewers much happier with CBS daytime. Also, where can I purchase Jonathan's Story, the book from Guiding Light and Oakdale Confidential, The book from As the World Turns? I think that you should make the episodes viewable online, the one's that air each day. Come on CBS daytime… It’s worth it! Get into the 21st century.
Soaps.com: Actually, Pamela, all the CBS soaps have been available online for some time now. We’re happy you wrote to us so we could share this! You can watch the same day episodes, posted at 3:00pm Pacific Time daily, on the CBS website.
As for the soap books…GL’s Jonathan’s Story can be purchase or ordered through any bookstore by giving them these numbers:
# ISBN-10: 1416559027
# ISBN-13: 978-1416559023
Same goes for Oakdale Confidential:
# ISBN-10: 1416537147
# ISBN-13: 978-1416537144
Or you can purchase both books online through Amazon. Enjoy!
Bonnie B. asks: As the Guiding Light comes on, what is the poem being said by children and adults about family & togetherness?
Soaps.com: It’s a beautiful poem, isn’t it, Bonnie, and it goes as follows:
There is a destiny that makes us brothers
None goes his way alone
All of the light that we send into the lives of others
Comes back into our own.
Cynthia D. asks: Can you tell me who Lee Paterson is? In today’s show it said in loving memory. I did not know who he was by the picture but tell the cast and his family I am sorry for their loss.
Soaps.com: Nearly eight months later, sadly, the news of former OLTL actor Lee Patterson (ex- Joe Riley) has been released to the soap world. The actor was said to have suffered an illness, which in turn resulted in the 77 year-old’s death on February 14, 2007. Lee was best known by OLTL fans as the husband to Victoria Lord Riley (Erika Slezak), and father to her sons Kevin and Joey Riley (now Buchanan). Hope this helps! Lee was always a fan favorite!
