Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda, As the World Turns)ATWT's fans. Check this out. It's an online chat with Elizabeth Hubbard (Lucinda) direct from The Netherlands .

You won't regret it.  Contributed by CL

Speaking of ATWT, it's current Executive Producer, Chris Goutman, got his start as an actor. Check out this early scene from The Edge of Night (Circa 1981) . And guess what?

Jack Wagner (Nick, Bold and the Beautiful)Soapdom Wants to Know:  Back in April, the Bold and the Beautiful's Jack Wagner (Nick) was seen all lovey dovey with none other than Heather Locklear at Wagner's Celebrity Golf Classic golf tournament benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  The two both starred on the Spelling primetime sudser, Melrose Place, many moons ago and apparently have maintained a friendship.
