Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth, GH)General Hospital fans, get your thoughts and prayers in gear. Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth) has come down with an illness. We are not sure what, but we do know that whatever it is, it is putting her out of commission acting-wise for a little bit.

Due to her illness, the role of Elizabeth Webber will be temporarily recast by Martha Madison with a first air date of June 8th.

Soap fans will remember Madison from her role as Belle Brady on Days of our Lives, a role originally played by Kristen Storms (Maxie, GH). What's of interest here is that Madison was the replacement for Charity Rahmer, the actress who first won the role after Kristen Storms left. Rahmer's stay in Salem was short lived, however, when producers and fans alike did not take to her interpretation of the character. Madison, who had originally read for the role, but lost out to Rahmer, was immediately called in to read for the role again. The producers loved what they saw this time, and she was put straight to work.

Martha MadisonMadison can currently be seen as Marly Nelson-Foster in the web series, The Bay.

The cast and crew of General Hospital, along with all of us at Soapdom.com, wish Becky Herbst a speedy recovery. Our contacts at GH expect her to be back at work soon. Get well quickly, Becky!

Soap Opera or Reality? Reality TV Couples Who Are Still Together

How many reality fans are out there in soapdom?  Do you have your favorite reality couples? As I am sure you know, reality shows give birth to a fair amount of public romances, and a lot of public breakups. It's just like soap operas, but in real time! In reality (pun intended), fact is truer than fiction and some of these reality couples engage in more outlandish activities than the most contrived storylines on our favorite soaps.

As in real "everyday life," couples have their ups and downs.  What's coming up roses one day, is cause to walk the plank on another. But when your personal life is played out on the airwaves for the world to see, it adds a new and distracting dimension to to being able to keep one's personal life personal.
