Hi,I don't know about a long term plan, but he wasn't mentioned in any of the May Sweeps teasers I got.Steph
Hi,OLTL is being very secretive about Kevin's role, so I don't know anything yet! We did speak to him and his interview will be in the issue on sale 4/29. Steph
Hi, Thanks for asking!I checked it out with my corportate office. Here's was my response: "Effectively it is a pdf. They get email notification each week (Friday afternoon) that the issue is available and they download at that time. Subscribers can archive their issues so they are always available and there is search capability by issue." Here's a link: https://store.primediamags.com/subscribe/soapoperadigestdigital/10679/I8BBBNSteph
Thanks for the reply Steph. I'm glad to know they'll be around . I read the preview and got a little worried that it said they won't be at work as much as we've seen and I was thinking we only see them like twice a month as it is so that can't be good. Hopefully it just means they'll have another sl outside of work.
Quote:Steph, I just read a spoiler for the week of April 21 that says:"Marlena gives John another reason to live."Could you give us a hint of what that would be?Thank you I read somewhere or another that John says his reason for getting up in the morning is business/competing with Victor and Marlena kisses him to give him another reason to get up in the morning.
Thanks for the info. That sounds great! I'll order the digital subscription and probably still buy a copy when my favs make the cover.
That's so disappointing. Thanks for answering.Thank you so much for your Leann interview. She seems like such a sweetheart. I've been waiting for a good interview with her since her return.Oh, and thanks for posting that fanletter for bringing back Steve Blackwood/Bart. I miss him. Bart's death was so unnecessary.

If Rolf's death didn't take, then Bart's death shouldn't have taken, either.Bart and Jawn. They would have made a great pair.
Stephanie-- a moderator at another board who has backstage info on dool said that Nick will most likely be fired. OMG...can you tell me if this is true.
Hey Steph, any word on Martha Madison yet. I have heard rumors that she was going to Guiding Light and I have also heard rumors that she may be coming back to Days......
Stephanie, did you interview Thaao for his nomination?Congrats to all our DOOL nominees. It's about time we got some.
Hi,Yes, I spoke to Thaao yesterday. He was in great spirits about his nomination. I am so thrilled for all four DAYS nominees! Steph
Hi,I saw Blake Berris (Nick) at the set a couple of weeks ago. I haven't heard anything about him being fired and I hope that's just a bad rumor. Steph
Hi,I haven't heard anything about Martha and GL or DAYS. :-( Hope we hear something soon, though; she's too good to stay unemployed. Steph
Hi Stephanie, thank you so much for doing this thread! I have a general question about the way the interviews and covers work. Who is it that makes the decision to put certain storylines on the cover and in the magazine? Does the show tell you what's coming up, and then SOD makes the decision on who to interview and which stories to feature? Or does the show offer different actors each week for interviews? Do the shows have any input as to the magazine covers? Thanks!
Hi Ellie,Thanks for coming to the board! Here's how it works: Our covers generally feature peak storyline moments or big news. Either a show rep will pitch me a peak moment they have coming up or I will see that we have an open cover and contact the shows and ask what they have going on that week. SOD makes the ultimate decision about what goes on the cover. No, the shows don't have input beyond the initial pitch. Steph
Hi Stephanie, thanks, it's good to be here! Thanks so much for your answer! That does make a lot of sense. I'm curious, is that how it works with the interviews as well? Does the show 'pitch' the stories and then SOD decides who to feature in the articles? Thanks, and thanks again for doing this thread!
The spoilers for the week of May 12 don't say anything about John and Marlena? Will they be on at all during sweeps? John and Marlena are the best thing about the show right now, and I have enjoyed watching their growing relationship. Does the show have anything planned for them? I want Marlena involved just as much as John, hopefully together.
Hi Stephanie,Do you know if John and Marlena will have a real story this summer? I'm not talking about pimping Ejami or thrown together blink and you miss them scenes but a story with substance? Thank you
J&M's storyline is the only one I enjoy and I'm hoping they have a big storyline for the summer. I refuse to watch a rape victim falling for her rapist, it's beyond disgusting. I'm so furious they are writing Marlena encouraging Sami to be with EJ. Marlena's been raped, she knows what it's like and she would never want her daughter with a rapist. I'm hoping for a J&M cover soon, I certainly won't be buying the issue promoting the rapist and his victim.
Quote:Hi,Yes, I spoke to Thaao yesterday. He was in great spirits about his nomination. I am so thrilled for all four DAYS nominees! Steph Thanks Stephanie
For the first time in my life I bought SOD because Ejami are finally getting the recognition they deserve. The photos and the interviews were wonderful and I'm glad that the writers have realized what a massive mistake they made by not utilizing the chemistry between AS/JS. Now, they need to explain to me why Marlena wants to be awith a man just because he looks like her husband. Is it that easy for her to replace John with a look-a-like because this Pawn John and John Black are not anywhere near the same. I mean *I* prefer Pawn Jawn, but I don't know why Marlena would since he goes against everything she believes in (until you remember her cold-blooded act against Stefano which she seems to have forgotten).She may as well return to Roman. At least she knows who he is.
Stephanie, who picked the picture of Deidre (Marlena) to use on the wall at the Dimera mansion in place of the picture of Stefano? Saw it on the promo and was a great surprise! I love it!
Hi Stephanie,I've noticed that on every show nuJohn is drinking what looks like alcohol. Can you find out if Drake is drinking liquor or if this is tea made to look like liquor. I know nuJohn is supposed to be totally different from real John hence all the drinking but is Drake really drinking alcohol on every show? TY
Hi,I am rarely pitched interview subjects. The way it usually works is that I create an editorial schedule and assign interviews based on who is new, who we haven't done in awhile, who people are talking about, etc. Steph
Hi,I don't have any summer info yet. Sorry!Steph

Hi Hops,I checked with the show and Deidre is the one who selected the photo for the portrait in the mansion. Steph
Hi Grace,There is no liquor drinking going on on set! The prop department uses tea or fruit juices for the drinks that John has in scenes.Steph
Stephanie,Thank you for the info on John's drinking. It's good to know Drake's not always downing strong liquor.
That wasn't my question but thanks for the info I bet sometimes they wish it was real liquor I'm glad Deidre was the one to chose the pic they are using in the mansion.
Stephanie, is SOD going to interview Joe Mascolo over his firing from DOOL? Is he going back to B&B?
Quote:Hi Hops,I checked with the show and Deidre is the one who selected the photo for the portrait in the mansion. Steph Thank you so much! It's beautiful. Can't wait to see it on the show.Do you know if Deidre and Drake will be on much during sweeps? Will they have a story during the summer? I'm really enjoying the few scenes we get of them together. I hope we get more and get more of an insight into how Marlena is feeling and also how these two characters new relationship evolves. Thank you
How about a Tanna cover since they are getting engaged in two weeks? Their covers in the 80s are so beautiful.
I agree. A Tanna cover would be great!
Hi Stephanie! So nice of SOD to put a forum up for us to voice our opinions! Thanks!
Will John and Marlena be having that 'talk' that they keep avoiding soon? Will Marlena get a chance to tell her side of her past with John? Also, will there be any scenes coming up were Marlena deals with all she is going through? Thank you
Hi! I was just looking through my new SOD and noticed that John and Marlena (and Drake and Deidre) won the HOTN poll! I'm thrilled to see that, but then I noticed that the "couple" picture is of Steve and Kayla. Two weeks ago, in the May 6th issue, Deidre won favorite actress, but Mary Beth Evans' picture was shown. My question is, have the Steve and Kayla fans staged a takeover of the SOD offices?
Thank you for putting EJami on the cover, I actually bought several copies of SOD last week I love Ali & James...any more stories on them or Ejami are greatly appreciated!!!!
Hi Stephanie, I have a question about Drake Hogestyn's (Jawn DiMera) eyes, LOL! I'm seeing this question on nearly EVERY message board I go to. People are wondering what the makeup department are doing to Drake's eyes to make them so dark. He has the most beautiful blue eyes and it doesn't seem to matter if in real life he wears DARK colors because the natural blue in his eyes POPS, no matter what he wears. On DAYS his eyes are so dark brown that they look like Peter's (Bo) eyes. Could you please find out for us if they're making Drake wear colored contacts (brown) to cover up his blue eyes, so the character he is playing will look darker? Drake is one heck of an extraordinary actor that is doing a phenomenal job playing Jawn DiMera...a MUCH darker character, IMHO he'll still look like a bad arse even with blue eyes, LOL!Thanks so much!
Hi Stephanie,Two questions for Dee?1. How heavy or lite is her work schedule is for the summer?2. Dena mentioned in one of her blogs that she was talking to Drake about "his" upcoming story. Has Dena discussed an upcoming story with her for Marlena and J/M? Thank you in advance.
Quote: Could you please find out for us if they're making Drake wear colored contacts (brown) to cover up his blue eyes, so the character he is playing will look darker? I always thought Drake's eyes were brown before I found out they were blue from a magazine. They mostly look brown to me on screen.

Hi,I did speak to Joe and his interview will be in the next issue on sale (next week's issue. Sami/EJ/Lucas on the cover). Steph
Hi,Oh, dear. You certainly caught us in a big OOPS there! Thanks for pointing it out and I will be sure that doesn't happen again!Steph
Thanks, Chappy! Check out the next issue. They're on the cover again. Steph
I will certainly look into that! I hadn't noticed. :-)Steph
Hi,I have no info on summer story yet. Sorry! Hopefully, J&M will be in it and it will be good. Steph
Quote:Hi,Oh, dear. You certainly caught us in a big OOPS there! Thanks for pointing it out and I will be sure that doesn't happen again!Steph Thanks - no problem. How about a J&M cover and we'll call it even. (Just kidding. Thanks for responding! )
Quote:I will certainly look into that! I hadn't noticed. :-)Steph LOL, you're the BEST Stephanie, thanks so much! A friend of mine did take a cap from the show and she lightened it and Drake's blue eyes came right out, so it looks like it might be the lightening.
