Chantelle took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say, she found herself immersed in literature from before she was born. She’s been known to tell her friends all about how she can still remember the passages she heard her mother read to her when she was in the womb - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Whether she’s whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on her second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name she refuses to disclose), Chantelle has continued to keep her feet wet with words, as it were. You’re sure to get a kick out of her giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

How did Days of Our Lives make soap opera history?

Days of Our Lives is the longest-running soap opera on NBC. Another World held the previous record premiering in 1964. After the cancellation of Another World was in 1999, Days of Our Lives became the longest-running soap opera on the network. It is home to some of the industry firsts like the first real-life twins in a soap opera. And even though it was only a half-hour, the show changed over to hour-long episodes after ten years in 1975. Ted and Betty Corday, a real-life married couple, created the show; the couple behind the popular series never dealt with as much drama in their relationship as the fictional characters did on the show. The soap was the first daytime series to cast a man in a woman’s role; it was a bold decision, in 2005, to cast Dan Wells as “Stan,” Sami’s male alter ego intent on seeking revenge on another character. And never short on romance, the show’s first super-couple took their love life offscreen. Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes, Doug and Julie Williams, respectively, let their real-life romance inspire them to get married in 1974—in secret before their fictional counterparts did on screen.
