How the soap stars spent the Fourth of July.

Soap stars were busy having fun on the Fourth of July, celebrating USA’s independence, and capturing the good times in photos. “General Hospital” alum, Bryan Craig (Morgan), posted a photo on Instagram of himself with four other men, telling fans “4th with my brothers ususus,” while “All My Children” alum, Eden Riegel (Bianca), showed a photo of her family with the caption, “Happy 4th of July!! From our family to yours.” Lexie Stevenson (Mattie “Young and the Restless”) uploaded a photo of herself and a friend in Vinalhaven, Maine, suggesting everyone thank the troops today and wishing them a happy 4th. We found “General Hospital” alum, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt), showing off her American pride with photos of her dog and herself, lying on a chaise lounger draped with an American flag, in the sunshine. “Bold and the Beautiful’s” Courtney Hope (Sally) was looking decidedly patriotic in her American flag bikini, spending time on the beach. found “Y&R’s” Bryton James (Devon) taking a selfie with a few friends with big smiles on their faces at an outdoor event. Scott Reeves (Steve “GH,” Ryan “Y&R”) took a short video of a cruise he was on with family and friends on Wheeler Lake, Alabama. We think we spotted Reeves’ wife, Melissa (Jennifer, “Days of our Lives”) in a sundress! “AMC” alum, Susan Lucci spent the Fourth with her family – husband Helmut, and his niece and her boyfriend, having a barbecue, watching baseball, and fireworks. “Days of our Lives” Jen Lilley (Theresa) spent the day decorating her home for the celebration and spending time with her family, including her foster child. “Y&R” actor, Justin Hartley (ex-Adam) and Chrishell Stause (Bethany “Y&R,” Jordan “Days,” Amanda “AMC”) recorded themselves playing beer pong in the pool. Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix, “GH”) spent the day in Hyde Park, Chicago with family. He posted a photo and wrote, “More family goodness with my sis, brother-in-law, and the nephews and niece.” Ex-“Days” actor, Kevin Spirtas (Craig), spent the Fourth with his parents in Marco Island, Florida, shooting pool at sea. Meanwhile, Galen Gering (Rafe, “Days”) shared the Fourth with his family in sunny Lake Tahoe, while a co-star, Lucas Adams (Tripp) went camping with his girlfriend Shelby, and his decked out dog, Bubbs. “General Hospital” actress, Michelle Stafford (Nina), spent Independence Day in Aruba in the sun and the sand, with her children and a few good friends, posting photos of everyone, and last, but not least, Christian LeBlanc (Michael, “Y&R”) has been spending time in New Orleans, where he celebrated the 4th with friends, family, fried green tomatoes, fried pickles, cheese fries, and 3 dozen oysters!

That’s how various soap stars spent the Fourth. Leave a comment to let us know how you spent your day.
