INTERVIEW: B&B's Lesli Kay (Felicia)
On her appearance on GHOST WHISPERER this Friday: "I had a great time playing a soap diva on a soap within a show. The ghost on this episode used to work with some of the soap cast...that's all I should say. Watch and enjoy as Thad and Amelia are GREAT together."

INTERVIEW: Y&R's Thad Luckinbill (J.T.)
"It was fun. The soap goes so fast and quick that sometimes you don't get to cherish it. Primetime is slower so you get to take it in more and enjoy it during the process. We ironically on GHOST WHISPERER ended up together. No matter what we do, if we act in the same show, we end up together."
