Soap Opera Digest's editorial director Stephanie Sloane is back with our Sonia Isabelle to talk about Eric Braeden's interview & the first impressions that new stars had when meeting their on screen partners!
Eric Braeden's Revealing Interview
Eric Braeden turned 80 last month, but the word "retirement" is not even contemplated in his vocabulary. Sloane shares:
"He says it surprises him how much that is a relief to fans, but it also makes him happy that it is. Eric says he's grateful to have been paired with Melody Thomas Scott for so many years."
Essentially, Braeden is not going anywhere.
First Impressions From New Stars
"John was the first one to welcome Delon into the family and Delon says he really wanted to impress him."
"But Ally welcomed her with a bug hug and a smile."
"She discovered a sweet and down to earth guy, her co-star Michael Mealor. Courtney says he's so honest and doesn't put on any errors and she really appreciates that."

The actress opened up about her feelings on returning to the show on a recent episode of The LA Times' new podcast.
The long running drama Grey's Anatomy was just renewed for its eighteenth season, ABC announced on Monday. With this came speculation on if Sandra Oh, known for her role of Dr. Cristina Yang on the show, would be returning at all.
The TV star put these hopes and speculations to rest on the LA Times podcast, "Asian Enough," a podcast dedicating to highlighting the joys and complications that come with being Asian American.
When asked if she was considering on returning to the show, Oh replied:
"No... I love it, though, and this is also why I really appreciate the show … that I still get asked this."
Oh, who was apart of the show for the first 10 seasons, has not appeared on it in the last seven years. She also added:
""n some ways, you do your work as a bubble and you let it go. I left that show, my God, seven years ago almost. So in my mind, it's gone. But for a lot of people, it's still very much alive. And while I understand and I love it, I have moved on."
The actor, an outspoken activist, also opened up about the show's decision to deliberately opt out of important conversations about race and the political climate. She said:
"One time … I wanted to do this really good joke with Sara Ramirez. Cristina was ambitious and just trying to get ahead, right? So she was just kind of trying to pull the like, you know, the POC card with Dr. Torres. But it wasn't the time. It just wasn't the time, and it wasn't the part of the show. So it wasn't anything that I actually focused on."
The star has since moved on to other projects, such as critically acclaimed BBC America series Killing Eve. She also plugged her upcoming Netflix original series comedy The Chair, which is set to premiere August 27.
Bristowe held the title of The Bachelorette on the show's 11th season and split from her pick Shawn Booth back in 2019.
Tartick was one of three remaining contestants on Becca Kufrin's reign as season 14's Bachelorette.
The engagement took place where they met: while recording an episode of her podcast "Off the Vine"!

Bristowe is set to co-host this upcoming season "The Bachelorette" with fellow former "Bachelorette" Tayshia Adams.
