Days of Our Lives 'Specials'

On this page is a list of other things I have have available for trading which are related to Days of our Lives and its cast. At the moment it is mostly interviews, but I do have several award shows which I will be adding shortly.

Soap Talk, Soapography, One Day With and Extreme Fan are all shows from the cable channel SOAPnet. Soap Talk is a chat show hosted by Lisa Rinna (who used to play Bille Reed on DOOL) and Ty Treadway. Soapography features interviews with actors as it looks at their biography. In One Day With, Wally Kurth (who used to play Justin Kiriakis on DOOL) spends a day with the actor as we get to learn more about their life and personality.
