Happy 40th Anniversary, Courtney and Peter Simon!

Today's Soap History column included the wedding of Search for Tomorrow co-stars Peter Simon (Scott) and Courtney Sherman (Kathy), which took place 40 years ago today. Simon went on to star as Ian McFarland in As the World Turns before a long run as Ed Bauer on Guiding Light. Sherman appeared in and/or wrote for a number of other soaps, most notably As the World Turns.

We Love Soaps contributor and international entertainment reporter Nelson Aspen caught up with the Simons at an event over the weekend, and it looks like they still as happy as they were in 1975. Nelson's mentor was daytime legend Mary Stuart (Jo on SFT, Meta on GL) so, of course, she was on their minds. Nelson still uses Mary's omelet pan, and they use the porcelain casserole dish she gave them as a wedding gift. Happy 40th, Courtney and Peter!

Speaking of Nelson, he is working on a wonderful new web series with longtime soap writer Janet Iacobuzio‎ (most recently at Days of our Lives). I have been sworn to secrecy but soap fans are definitely in for a treat. Look for more on that in the near future.


  1. Happy Anniversary, Courtney & Peter. Yay! Thanks Nelson!
