    What?? Janine is making trouble for Jay?? I’m really undecided about her. The actress is Awesome, but I don’t know how I feel about that character yet. On the other hand, Danielle has really grown on me. I can’t wait for *her* secret to come out!! The poor thing is going to have to deal with being Archie’s granddaughter! UGH! She has my sympathies, lol!

    Hey John, whatever happened to that Year in Review Mag that one of the soaps was going to come out with? I was wondering if you’ve heard anything about it (I can’t even remember which soap it was :) )

    As usual, thanks John!!

    That was the Aussie soap Home and Away, I am trying to find enough news to make a post now, it’s hard considering both soaps are ‘off the air’ and not in production at the moment -.-.

    Anyways I haven’t read spoilers, i just kinda glanced and i was like “Secret, Ummmm thing, ummm that happens” and tried to not look lol.

    Daisy, I accidentally stumbled upon some spoilers and Danielle is not gonna tell her secret but her other secret is just as shocking!

    tgable07, her other secret is just as shocking?! How could that be?! I’m so excited, LOL!!

    Yeah John, I try to stay away from spoilers for EE. That’s why I can’t go into EE forums – have you noticed a lot of times they post spoilers w/ no warning? Sometimes right in the title of a thread, LOL! I’m like “Noooooo!!!” :D
