News Brief

INTERVIEW: B&B's Heather Tom
"I am working for Obama right now, and we are working hard to bring change to America. The other issue is for the proposition 8 issues for people living in California. I think it’s important they have to vote “No”. A lot of people are confused as to what this is, and basically it means they want to strip rights away that have been granted by the Supreme Court of California. We have to make sure they fail in their efforts, and that they are exposed for the hate-mongers they are."

INTERVIEW: ATWT's Grayson McCouch
"I was in the garden at my house, thinking about all the weeds and someone came and got me and said [Executive Producer] Chris Goutman is on the phone. He said he wanted to know if I was interested in coming back to the show. To which my response was, 'of course.' Eight months of not acting, I was ready to get back in the saddle. I owe a lot to Nick [Chris Goutman's son], his friendship, we kept in contact. Nick was one of the guys when things weren't working my way, telling me everything is going to be alright. I have friends like him, and his father, that they would always take care of me and they gave me a lot of support in a time when I was trying to take things by storm."

"I am not going to pretend to be an expert. However, when I was living and working in New York for example, I did some work with an AIDS hospice with kids who were HIV+, whose parents had died. Some of the children had been put in care facilities when their parents could not deal with them anymore. That was because children born with HIV have a lot of problems, and they all seemed to fall in the same socio-economic demographic. They were the people who had no voice. If it was a disease that affected the most affluent one percent of society, you can be pretty sure it would have been a major election and political issue. I think you will find that it falls to the smaller social groups be it: race, economic, social, or sexual statuses, who tend to have less of a voice in this country."

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES down but still Sunday's top show
Despite falling 7% from last fall's first showing, ABC's DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES was Sunday's highest-rated program averaging 18.4 million viewers in overnight ratings.

INTERIVEW: Y&R's Michelle Stafford
"I feel that people with a lot of things and a lot of money, who buy pretty things, and don’t do things with it, are just the most boring people in the world. They are the most angry, most selfish, and they are stuck to their things. I would rather stick 16,000 needles in my eye than hang out with somebody like that. There is nothing wrong with having things, if you have the money to buy it, but if you are not giving back you are just a very sad individual, to me."

Turner, who plays Aidan on AMC, was the guest on "Soap Box" last night.
