Passions Director Writes Soapdom

Phideaux Xavier responds to fan's kudos.

McKenzie Westmore (Sheridan) and Galen Gering (Luis) PassionsSoapdom's Cyber Soapbox!

Several weeks ago, we published a letter sent in by Willie Mae, who asked if Passions' director Phideaux Xavier was male or female because "… I enjoy the show so much more when this director directs. I think that it is a combination of passion and gentleness, (if that makes sense) which seems to be present." 

Shortly after we ran the letter, and our response, we received this personal note from Mr. Xavier...

Dear Soapdom,

"I recently heard there was a letter about me on your website and asked our Publicity Director at Passions to hunt it down for me.  She sent me the link to your delightful site and I was able to view the letter and response about my humble directing forays at Passions.  I just wanted to write and thank you for the kind things you had to say to Willie Mae about my work in your response.  We directors of daytime drama do not always appear above the radar in the fans' eyes or hearts and it is wonderful to get some feedback from the audience.  I love the actors and characters of Passions and believe deeply in our kooky and somewhat loopy show.  However, I maintain that beneath the silliness and impossibility must exist truth and humanity and yes, passion.  It is a privilege to work in the serial medium and a particular pleasure to work on Mr. Reilly's show. Thanks again for your encouragement."


Phideaux Xavier

Dear Phideaux,

Thank you for contacting us and sharing your experiences directing episodes of Passions.  Many more thanks for your kind words on Soapdom.com.  We hope you will visit with us often!  Keep up the great work.  LMS

Past Blast

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.
