Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie, GH)
Soaps.com is curious about how the soap stars will be spending their Independence Day this 4th of July. We spoke with several soap stars, who graciously shared their plans for the 4th! We invite you, the readers to share your plans for the 4th, and hope that whatever you’re doing today that you have a good one!
“I will be going to my cabin and hanging out. I’m going to swim with my dogs in the lake and go out on my ski boat.” When asked if she’d done anything special in the past for July 4th, Adrienne told Amy, “I usually just like to get together with a bunch of family and friends and watch fireworks. We have a little 4th of July party.” She let Amy know that the Y&R gives their cast and crew the day off in order to celebrate! We hope this 4th is a relaxing day for Adrienne!
Melissa Gallo (Adriana Cramer, OLTL) shares her plans for the 4th of July.
“We will be at David’s house in Naples gettin’ sun, swimming, grilling, and drinking beer. My family will be there as well,.. so it will be a whole Fumero/Gallo clan BBQ!!
(She reminisces) The town I grew up in used to put on some pretty bad-ass fireworks on the 4th.
Amy asked, “Does the show throw a July 4th party?” Melissa says, “Not exactly… they give us the whole long weekend off, so in sense they do!” We know that plenty of fans will be green with envy when they find out how Melissa will be spending her holiday… knowing that she’ll be spending her time with sexy fiancée, David Fumero (Christian Vega, OLTL)
Amy Mistretta (Editor, Y&R, OLTL) shared her plans for the 4th with us. “Since daytime doesn’t stop for holidays, I plan to bring all the Y&R and OLTL fans a great recap! After that, I’ll head out to the deck to join in on the family’s July 4th BBQ!” Amy tells us, “We normally go camping the weekend after the fourth, which is always fun!”
Julie Clark Robinson (Editor B&B and GH) tells us that on the 4th of July, she’ll be… “Writing B&B and GH updates, of course! I always love to watch the soaps on holidays, in fact, before I was an Editor for Soaps.com, I used to resent when family stuff got in the way of my soaps. Now, it’s my job so I have every excuse to watch soaps on holidays.” Julie in turn asked four GH’ers about their plans for the 4th of July.
Julie asked Annie Wersching, (GH’s Amelia Joffe) how she planned on spending the 4th of July, if she has a favorite 4th of July memory she cared to share, and if GH does anything special to celebrate Independence Day. Annie said this, “My plans for the 4th of July are actually to spend a week in Disneyworld!!!! I know… crazy! It’s going to be so crowded and hot! But yet… it is the happiest place on earth 🙂 It’s a family vacation/40 year wedding anniversary! (Yay!)” She tells Julie and goes on to say, “My favorite 4th of July is just growing up in St. Louis and going to what was then called the ‘ V.P. Fair’… the big celebration down under the arch… I have great memories of being there with my mom and dad and grandma and grandpa…and there are no fireworks more amazing than the ones over the Mississippi River reflecting off the arch while you lay beneath!”
She tells Julie, "GH doesn't do anything special that I know of...except give us most of the week off! Maybe there are secret 4th of July parties that you are only privy to once you sign that contract! :)
Hope you have a great holiday!" Well we know that Annie will have a great holiday with her family, Goofy and Snow White!
Jackie Zeman (Bobbie Spencer, GH's) told Julie Clark Robinson her exciting plans for the 4th of July. "My sister Lauren is coming to visit from New Jersey and we have been invited to go to Huntington Beach to be in the 4th of July parade. We both love parades...always have...we'd go every 4th to our local parade in Bergenfield New Jersey where we lived. Our Dad was always in the parade and we were so proud...and when we joined Brownies and Girl Scouts we would march with our friends and neighbors. The 4th of July is a great day of celebration for all ages. Happy 4th to you and your family!" Maybe some of you fans will be able to see Jackie in the parade today!
Julie heard from Jason Gerhartd (Cooper Barrett, GH) tells Julie his plans for the 4th.
"We are going to try and take a drive up to Idaho to visit some family." Jason says, and reminisces about past July 4th parties. "I had a bunch of great memories from Madison, Wisconsin. The friends, the lakes, water skiing and the parties…it was lots of fun. They also have one of the biggest fireworks displays there; set to music no less, that I've ever seen."
Julie Clark Robinson heard from Kirsten Storms - (GH's Maxie Jones) and was told that she had some interesting 4th of July plans!
"For 4th of July I will actually be in Canada (funny I know) with my boyfriend for one of his shows. Only we would end up together out of the country on America's Independence Day." Kirsten shares past memories of the 4th. "Just being in Florida (where I'm from) with my family and BBQing. We lived on a lake growing up so 4th of July was always celebrated on the water with sparklers and grilling with our friends."
Christine Fix (Editor-in-Chief, and Editor Days) briefly chatted with Christopher Maleki (Herbert "Spike" Lester, Passions) and asked him about his plans for the 4th. Chris says, "I'm going to a pool party in Woodland Hill on the 4th of July, for water volleyball, a barbecue, and cocktails!" Sounds like fun! He tells us that, "Passions , every so often will have parties for Christmas, and some holidays, but not for birthday's, (or the 4th of July!)."
Christine Fix tried to catch up with fan favorite, Rachel Melvin (Chelsea Brady, Days) but Rachel's in the middle of a move, along with having a busy schedule as of late. We found out that she's off right now and she and her mother will be heading to the CBSStudios for a July 4th event that will benefit High School Music Departments! (So generous with her time!) We'll try to catch up with her after the 4th to find out if she attended any parties!
What am I doing on the 4th of July? I've the day off, and will be packing for my own move! Doesn't sound like fun? Well, since I'm Canadian, I celebrate Canada Day, which is July 1st - with some friends.
Cheers and Happy 4th of July from all of us at Soaps.com!
