Soap Cities Reader Profile #1: Joann


Every week we at Soap Cities profile a soap fan and Soap Cities reader from around the world. We soap fans are each an integral part of a vibrant, dynamic, eternal community. And here is one example of that!

Name: Joann

Hometown: Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania

How long she’s been watching soaps: I’ve been watching soaps since I was a little girl. I remember watching “The Young and the Restless” with my mother.

Favorite soap: My all-time favorite was “Passions,” but we all know what happened with that soap opera. Now it’s “Bold and the Beautiful.”

Favorite soap character: My favor soap character would be Hope Logan from “Bold and the Beautiful.” She represented The all-American girl with morals, honesty, and loyalty to family.

All-time favorite soap storyline: My all-time favorite soap storyline would be the love story of Hope Logan and Liam Spencer better known as Lope. Their love was a natural and honest love. With every obstacle that kept them apart and no matter what was thrown at them, it only made their love stronger.

What she thinks of the future of the soap genre: I think they’re here to stay, and make a comeback even!

Fun fact: I run four “Bold and the Beautiful” Facebook fan groups: Team Hope Logan, Bold and the Beautiful Highlight Message Board.
