I actually gasped when I read this news. Not that I've ever watched the show. Not that my first crush was on Phillip Spaulding.
[I think my new favorite website is soapcentral.com. I love that in their "who's who" of characters section they have categories such as "aliases" and "crimes committed," and I love that in the "past marriages" category most characters have a list of at least five names. I was going to write, "Why did I ever stop watching soaps?" but I don't think I did; I just switched to soaps that air during primetime, set on the Upper East Side, in outer space, and on deserted islands.]
