THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS star Melody Thomas Scott on working with Eric Braeden: 'I know how to handle him'
"I'm not going to lie and say that being his costar is easy, because it ain't. But it's so worth it. And, hey, I can be pretty ornery, too. After working with the guy for 34 years, I know how to handle him. [Laughs] And, the best part is, he doesn't even know he's being handled!"
DAYS OF OUR LIVES alum Gloria Loring on her relationships with Don Diamont & Deidre Hall
On Don Diamont (ex-Carlos, DAYS; now Bill, THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: "He was so special because he came into my life at a point where I was feeling quite emotionally fragile even though I was supposedly a star on television. Donald was in my life for 3 ½ years. That time was really precious to me because the biggest thing he did for me, in addition to treating me with such respect, was that he listened to me. I was so used to not being heard in my marriage … my feelings, my everything. All I had to do was actually have an intake of breath, and Donald would ask, 'What do you need?'"
On Deidre Hall (Marlena, DAYS): "There are some funny Deidre stories, but I can’t tell them here. I never saw her temper. She can be very abrupt or let’s just say forthcoming (laughs). Deidre has no filter on what comes out of her mouth (laughs). Think of THE GOLDEN GIRLS and Estelle, the mother, who had no filter on what she said. That’s Deidre! And she’s very funny. It’s hysterical. It’s a little surprising at times, but she’s very funny. But you always know what’s going on with Deidre. You’ve got to give her credit for that. She’s amazing, the career she has built for herself."
