Dear Read­ers,

Soap Opera Digest - - SNEAK PREVIEW! - Stephanie Sloane, Ed­i­to­rial Direc­tor

We asked and you an­swered!

In this is­sue, we present soaps’ most ro­man­tic mo­ments ever, as voted by you. I was so over­whelmed by the re­sponse, and so heart­ened to see how warm and spe­cific your mem­o­ries are of love sto­ries past. Be­gin­ning on page 59, we un­veil the top vote-get­ters, then look back on mem­o­rable wed­dings, and other cou­ples that made the cut.

Su­san Seaforth Hayes is mark­ing 50 years as DAYS’S Julie on De­cem­ber 11. I spoke to the ac­tress for our “Best In Show” fea­ture, and she shared some amaz­ing sto­ries of her five decades in Salem. Find that on page 40.

Hay­ley Erin’s Kiki met a grisly end on GH, but the ac­tress has a lot to look for­ward to with her new se­ries, THE PERFECTIONISTS. On page 36, Erin dis­cusses her rea­sons for leav­ing with Mara Levin­sky, and weighs in on her dra­matic exit. Jen­nifer Gareis is back on con­tract as B&B’S Donna, and right in the thick of the Pam/quinn/eric drama. On page 54, Gareis tells Tom Stacy why the time was right for a re­turn.

Still on the hunt for a per­fect hol­i­day present? Check out our gift guide on page 68 for the soap fans on your list. Fi­nally, in the Roundup on page 48, ac­tors re­veal their first im­pres­sions of their co-stars.
