Wow...Susan Lucci, I love your work. It’s a honor to finally meet you! What is it like being an All My Children icon?

Have you ever heard of Google? You should try it. 

A lot of soap opera actresses such as Kelly Ripa seem to play dumb blondes. How do I fulfill this requirement when my hair is naturally red brown? All I have is the naturally dumb part down. What do I do to get on a soap?

Do you know someone in a high position at a network? You should sleep with them.


Martha won her first Daytime Emmy in 1999 for Best Actress

Before her current relationship, Martha was romantically linked in tabloids to fashion designer Michael Kors

Martha Byrne first became famous with her book, Entertaining. Since, she's hosted The Apprentice on NBC.

Can I just blurt this out? Will you give me one of your Emmys? You don't seem to appreciate them. I could give them a home inside my new kitten's fleece teepee. Dress them in the finest skimpy Barbie clothes money can buy.
