Hi Suds Buds:

Wow. That’s all I can say. Last week was an amazing week in soaps and for soaps.  For Soapdom, too, as we were very busy out and about covering all sorts of events. 

First of all, we got to send much of the day last Tuesday with Peter Reckell (Bo, DOOL) as he completed his practice laps for the 27th Annual Toyota ProCeleberity Race which is part of the Long Beach Grand Prix. If there was ever a place to watch motorsports, it’s down by the ocean in Long Beach, California. Did you know that they actually close off the city streets and use them as the race course?  It’s a massive coordination effort between Long Beach Police and Fire Departments, and the race promoters.  The race with Peter participating is Friday and Saturday, April 11, 12, 2003.  The qualifying round is Friday and the actual ProCelebrity race is Saturday.  LA DOOL fans, if you subscribe to Soapdom for 6 months at $19.95 by midnight Monday, April 7, you’ll be entered to win a free 3-Day pass to the race.  That’s a $48.00 value.  So, subscribe now and head on down to Long Beach to see Peter Reckell this coming weekend!  Not only that, but you'll be treated to hearing Reckell's wife, singer/songerwriter, Kelly Moneymaker , sing the National Anthem to open the race! 

We are running our coverage with Reckell as our current StarDay Feature. Plus, we've also added additional coverage of Mark Consuelos (ex Mateo, AMC) and Jacob Young (ex Lucky, GH) when they participated in the same race in 2001 and 2003 respectively.  Check it out.

Last weekend, Hollywood Mayor Johnny Grant named April 5 and 6, 2003 "Fan Festival Weekend" in Hollywood!  The fans came out in droves to meet and great their favorite stars of Passions, Days and Telemuendo’s new La Baby Sister (premiered April 4, 2003), Protagnistas de la Musica, and Adrian Esta de Visita.  Telemuendo stars in attendance included Paola Rey, Carlos Ponce, Lino Martone, Gabriel Blanco, and Oscar Corbella.  Claudia Trejos (a segment host from Al Rojo Vivo con Maria Celeste) co-hosted the event with Jerry Penacoli (Miles Malloy, DOOL).

While later in the day, it was SOAPNet Presents the Soap Opera Digest Awards.  Los Angeles Mayor Jim Hahn declared April 5th “Soap Day” in honor of the event.  Everyone who is anyone in soapdom was on hand to participate in SOAPNet’s first ever airing of the SOD awards.  We were right there on the red carpet in the No. 1 position to chat with all the stars as they arrived. 

We’ll have coverage on both events this week at Soapdom.com including exclusive interviews with the stars, photos, and a recap of the events themselves.  So stay tuned, my little Suds Buds.  There will be much coming to Soapdom over the next few days.

Coming SOON to Soapdom.com

  • Our exclusive interview with Jackie Zeman (Bobbie, GH) on her role as spokesperson for the AHA’s “Power of Love” campaign, her role on GH, her first encounter with nuLucky, Greg Vaughan, and saying good-bye to former Lucky, Jacob Young.

Til the top of next week,

Linda Marshall-Smith
