In the wonderful telling of Starr's pregnancy storyline, which is really only just beginning, OLTL has tried to raise awareness about teen pregnancy, prevention and how to get teens and parents talking about sex. From star Kristen Alderson's blog (http://blogs.abc.com/kristen) to her post-show public service announcements, OLTL has shown that it's committed to doing a teen pregnancy story justice and not just sweeping it under the rug with a quick solution. As a result, it's no surprise that The Candie's Foundation is honoring OLTL tonight at its annual Event to Prevent fund-raiser. Even better, yours truly will be there to cover the event (which features live performances by James Taylor and Taylor Swift!) and hobnob with some of my favorite OLTL stars. Sometimes, I can't believe this is my job. In an upcoming Digest feature, look for a candid Q&A with Executive Producer Frank Valentini and Alderson about this groundbreaking story.
