    According to this story, which was posted on a rival soap blogging website, (sorry, Jamey, Luke, Jillian—-don’t cut me, please ;) ;) !), Vivian has a son?? I admit to being extremely shocked at this “plot twist,” since we all know that Vivian ain’t no spring chicken and I assumed that her child-rearing days ended a few CENTURIES ago. I kid, of course. I love Vivian. Well, nevertheless, here’s the story, as well as an interview with Louise Sorel, who is slated to depart DAYS. Although I should be apathetic since I rarely watch DAYS these days, I am kinda bummed out because Vivian is/was one of the few characters on DAYS who NEVER ceased to entertain, even when she fell subject to crappy writing. I wish her well in her future endeavors.


    A-Crane, If you are reading this, you can pull out the confetti and party hats now. :party: :party: You are getting your Marlena and John back this summer.

    This is just weird. So did Vivian have this son prior to debuting on Days in 1992? If so, it sort of makes her relationship with Nikki seem a little…redundant. Unless she loved Nikki because she didn’t have her son in her life.

    Maybe he was born after she left the show in 2000? It would be neat if she had a son with Ivan!

    EDIT: Wait, Quinn is Vivian’s son?! Weird. Guess he will be leaving the show too—why keep him on without her?

    There is so much good Days news today I am overwhelmed!!

    This is a text version of the article.

    Vivian runs into Quinn in the park and is surprised to see the man who is actually her never-before-mentioned son.

    “First of all, he’s just lovely,” raves Louise Sorel of newcomer Bren Foster. “This is a new story where suddenly I find out that Vivian has a son who is Australian. I was trying to re-create an immediate connection with someone Vivian probably hasn’t seen since he was 10 — or something like that — and to hook in with him, which was quite easy because he has these wonderful, soft brown, doe eyes.”

    Sorel learned of the twist in the tale after Foster was hired. “Gary Tomlin introduced us,” she recalls. “There is a certain coloring and everything that works. It’s plausible.”

    So, what does it do to the backstory with Lawrence, whom Vivian considered a son because she supposedly never had one? “It comes out in the continuing story that raised Lawrence as her son in her mind,” Sorel explains. “Basically, it’s one of those situations where you’ve had a bad relationship with the father and he, in this case, told her to go away and never darken his doorstep again. Consequently, Vivian has tracked Quinn down, but she’s never spoken of him. She sort of denied his real existence, even though she kept track of him, because it was so hurtful. She’s always said that she never had a child, except Philip, who she stole – the embryo. In fact, it’s not true. We only learn these things after the fact. Lawrence comes into it a lot.”

    Vivian is unsettled to see the now-grown man in her presence. “I would assume that he has a lot of information on Vivian,” notes the actress. “There are a lot of things that may not ever be spoken.”

    Quinn, meanwhile, does have an agenda – but with Chloe. This week he blackmails her into becoming one of his escorts. “Quinn is aware of Chloe’s hardship, so there is an element to him where he thinks that he actually is helping her,” explains Foster. “Quinn doesn’t think that prostitution is such a bad thing. It’s his business. He sees it as providing a service that wealthy men need and also provides a way of life where women can make a lot of money in a relatively short time.”

    Though Chloe balks, “Quinn tries to get her to see the benefits of being employed in such a way,” says the actor. “He’s a very smooth operator.”

    So who is Quinn’s father? Is it Ivan?

    According to, Quinn’s father is some random guy who Vivian had an affair with in Australia. He’s also dead, which makes NO sense at all. Even if Quinn and Vivian weren’t leaving, having Quinn’s father be dead takes away a lot of potential storyline possibilities. Oh well. This is Dena Higley we’re talking about here. No major surprise for me.
