Jolinda D.: asks: How is the writer's strike affecting OLTL and other soap operas?
Soaps.com: So far the strike has not seemed to affect the writing for the worse. The shows appear to be all interesting and well written! Be sure to visit our Writer’s Strike article in the Latest News section frequently, as we update date it with late breaking strike news. We do know the soaps have shows taped way ahead, and it’s also been said they do have ‘secret writers’ producing more scripts. We can certainly see how some of the shows are written a little differently lately!

Ellen H. asks: I have watched Y&R as long as I can remember...possibly over 25 years. This seems like a very lame question, but I would like to know the china (dinnerware) pattern of Nick and Phyllis' at the tack house. Could you possibly let me know because I LOVE IT!!! It's yellow, kind of an earthenware (with green accents).
Soaps.com: Oh, Ellen, your question is not lame at all! Although we’d love to put you in contact with the retailer for this particular china, we don't know where the show purchases their ‘props’. However, if you’d like to contact Y&R with your inquiry, you can find their address in our Y&R FAQs page. We hope you’re able to add the pieces to your collection soon!
