From Tad's Romantic Entanglements and the Port Charles Hotel Fire to the Fan February Winners, It's February Sweeps at ABC Daytime!
Soapdom Congratulates Fan February Winners!
When Claudia Gibson, pictured above with OLTL's Kassie dePaiva (Blair) got the call that she had won ABC's Fan February contest to appear on her favorite soap, One Life to Live, she thought it was a scam.
"After they told me I'd won, I thought they were going to ask for my credit card number," she revealed during an interview at the OLTL set. The Kansas native learned it was all legit and found herself sitting next to Kassie DePaiva (Blair) as she prepped for her scene in the New York City studio.
"I've been watching [DePaiva] for so long," admits Gibson, who's been an OLTL viewer since the '70s. "She's just so pretty. I loved her with Todd and with Max, and she's so bad."
Honored that Gibson had chosen her as her favorite OLTL star, DePaiva playfully interrogated the mother of three, asking if she was Blair, would she have slept with her cousin's husband Kevin.
"No," replied Gibson, who then added, "Well, after seeing Dan Gauthier (who plays Kevin) in person, yeah."
Gibson was whisked away to slip into her nun's costume, and then brought up to the studio to deliver her big line: "Just take a few minutes," she previewed.
Now that Gibson's tasted the limelight, she's ready for more. "I told my husband, I'm moving to New York. I'll be home on weekends."
Gibson makes her daytime debut on February 4, along with General Hospital's Fan February contest winner, Seanna McBryde and All My Children's Fan February winner Pauline Dwyer. C ongratulations to all the Fan February Winners!
