Biography – Lori C.

Lori

Hi! My name is Lori, and I’m currently writing the B&B Short Recaps, the Best Lines for B&B and GH, and proofreading/editing the GH transcripts.

Like many of you, I am a huge fan of soap operas! I guess you’d say my mom got me started at a very young age, in the early 1970s when she tuned in to Love Is A Many Splendored Thing. As I got older, I spent my summers enjoying the CBS morning lineup of Search for Tomorrow and Young and the Restless and then switching over in the afternoon to ABC with One Life to Live, The Edge of Night, and General Hospital; I’ve been watching B&B since it debuted in 1986.  Unfortunately, when I was in elementary school and junior high, we didn’t have a way to record our shows like we do now, so I would catch up reading the previous week’s summaries in magazines like Soap Opera Digest and Soap Opera Weekly or TV Guide. Here’s a fun fact: I was such a huge fan of GH during its heyday in the early 80s that I decided to write a storyline, complete with dialogue, and send it to Gloria Monty, the producer behind the Luke & Laura phenomenon. To this day, it is the most cherished rejection letter I’ve ever received, and I still believe that Louisa (“Lou”) Swenson was loosely based on a character I created. LOL!

I’m originally from the West Coast. After a stint in the Army, I lived in the Midwest for 16 years and then moved to South Carolina in 2006, where I currently live with my husband of 25+ years and our three cats Jasper, Mia, and Maddie. I have a grown daughter, who still lives in the Midwest with her husband and my only grandchild. In my free time, I enjoy watching HGTV, reading biographies, crafting, gardening, photography, and traveling to the beach, where I love to collect seashells and observe the shorebirds.

Michele and Cheryl J.




Michele and Cheryl J.

Our names are Michele and Cheryl. We are twins sisters who work on the TV MegaSite. We’re from Newark, New Jersey. We’ve lived in New Jersey for the bulk of our lives. We’ve worked on the MegaSite for two years. We started out writing opinions for the MegaSite’s Passions page and then we became the managers of the page. We write opinions columns, winners and losers, countdown, nitpicks/flubs, moments, and lines of the week. We also write predictions, poems, and we put up quizzes. We gather news and scoops for the NBC newsletter, and we host the Days and Passions message board.

In our spare time, we like to listen to music, write, read, watch movies, use the computer, and shop. We love to watch Days and Passions. We have been watching Days for almost 15 years and we’ve been watching Passions since it debuted. We also write other columns for both shows at other pages. Maybe we should consider being writers on the shows. LOL! Since we enjoy writing about the shows so much, maybe we can become writers one day.

Biography – Marlene S.

Marlene S.




Marlene S.

I enjoy writing the “Days of Our Lives” opinion articles for this site. I live and grew up in Brooklyn, just like the book “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.” I did get a chance, when I was in college in my twenties, to live in upstate New York, in Poughkeepsie, for a while. I went to a community college there. I majored in the health care field and continued in that until I received my BS from St. Francis College in Health Care Management. I married on September 16, 1984 and had two children named Benjamin (who is now 27) and Natalie (now 17). They take up a good part of my life. Although I worked previously in the health care field, right now I am an Advertising Sales Rep for a magazine in Brooklyn as well as a Sales Representative in a Real Estate Company. I enjoy both part-time jobs.

In my spare time, I enjoy working out at a local gym, researching medical information on the internet, listening to music, and of course, shopping (as most women of my age do). Every ten years my hobbies change with the passing of time. I also have enjoyed taking courses either online or in an adult education program. I feel that the mind never stops working and has to be challenged. That is why I feel that keeping extremely busy and always wanting to learn new things will challenge my mind.

I also enjoy watching “Days of Our Lives” very much, when I have some spare time. I started watching the show 3 years ago and have not stopped. Some of the problems that the characters face are very similar to the problems and challenges that viewers face. I feel more involved with the show now that I can write these opinion articles about it. The most important feature that I have is that I enjoy talking to and working with people. I’m a people person and that gives me a sense of fulfillment.

Jim Wadman is a fan of both fiction and reality. He thinks that literature and like creative arts can elevate and alleviate the human condition, even if they do so by doing nothing more than reminding us that we are human and that others feel like us, that transitory beauty is worth enjoying, or that we have a universe of opportunity for growth and adventure.

Biography – Angelina A.

Angelina A.




Angelina A.

Angelina Angileri (or Angie to all who know me)

As a writer I always find it so easy to write and create content that will inspire; teach and enthrall all who read it, so I was truly frustrated at how difficult it was for me to actually write a Bio about myself!!! So…….here goes……

Born and raised in sunny South Africa where I currently live as a single mother of four gorgeous talented children; Gemma (18yrs; leaving to live and study at the New York Conservatory of Dramatic Arts in 2016); Olivia (15yrs); Luciano (13yrs and the only boy) and last but not least Isabella (11yrs going on 40 something due to her immense wisdom!). I chose to home school all four of my children due to the fact that talent is not seen as “good enough” unless you are an A+ student! But being wired differently is what makes life interesting and what drives us to succeed.

From a young age I was always enthralled with acting; dancing and entertaining but despite being cast in almost every school play and event that allowed me to be up on stage, I did not end up pursuing a career in the arts; instead I followed the usual normal structure of society. I have tried every job possible but only as a means of making a living and it wasn’t until I decided to quit the corporate world of Financial Planning and start working as a writer that I felt truly fulfilled.

There is something that seems to shift inside when one realizes that 40 is half way to 80!! Right?! This is, when life started looking more like a “Cease the Day” EVERYDAY opportunity to me. Therefore, when I was given the added opportunity to be able to work with Suzanne on The TV MegaSite, it not only intrigued me but also made me feel like it was an opportunity that I DID NOT want to miss out on; so Suzanne, thank you once again for the patience and opportunity to work with you.

No matter how hard life seems there is always something to look forward to regardless of what struggle may need to be overcome first!

Love life and live it to its fullest measure is how I embrace each day with my amazing children.

Besides writing and interviewing, she also has managed the site’s other volunteers; sought out appearances, news and spoilers; makes daily daytime soap transcripts; helps with the site’s forums and mailing lists; builds other pages for the site; writes two blogs; posts on our Instragram, Facebook and Twitter feeds; and anything else that’s needed.

As of July, 2019, Suzanne is focusing more on writing for the site and letting Brenda (now Editor-in-Chief) do more managing and editing of the site.

Suzanne is also helping in slowly moving The TV MegaSite’s content to and creating new content at http://tvmeg.com

Suzanne has also been a professional singer in a band and has many interests and hobbies. She currently lives in Magnolia, Arkansas with her husband of 36 years, David, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at Southern Arkansas University.  Suzanne just graduated in May, 2020, from SAU with a second B.A., in Mass Communication (Mass Media) in order to improve opportunities for this site.
