Board Games: “We play lots of board games in our family. My son could play a winning game of Monopoly before he was 6! My son and his best friend, who we call our second son, were here on Mother’s Day and we played Scrabble. I love the old, classic board games like those, but there are some great new ones, too, like Settlers of Catan. It combines a little bit of everything; you’ve got a little luck, and then it [incorporates] the idea of strategy and tactics. It’s a very fun game.”
“There are so many worthy organizations out there, but the first one that comes to mind is the United Negro College Fund [uncf.org]. Historically, Black colleges and universities are always in need of funding; they don’t have the endowments that schools like Harvard do, but it’s so important that they are able to flourish and grow in order to educate young Black men and women and for them to get the kind of world-class education they are deserving of. The United Negro College Fund helps with that, and helps students pay for that education, as well. More than a worthy cause.”

REAL-LIFE DAYS DUO'S ENGAGEMENT STORY
Arianne Zucker (Nicole) says she was “pleasantly surprised” when longtime beau Shawn Christian (ex-Daniel, DAYS) popped the question on Father’s Day. “Of course we’ve had conversations about a ring and things like that, but I didn’t really expect him to do the whole thing,” she begins. “I thought, ‘Oh, maybe he’ll just give me a promise ring over dinner someday.’ I literally didn’t think he was going to say what he said or do what he did. It was sort of like, ‘We’re not broke, don’t fix it. We have a great thing going.’ ”

MEET GH'S NEW SPENCER
Nicholas Chavez made his Port Charles debut as Spencer Cassadine on July 1, but the Denver native’s journey to GH actually began back in April, when he sent in a self-tape audition. Shortly thereafter, “My manager reached out and said, ‘Hey, they’d like you to screen-test out in Los Angeles,’ which was amazing news and is kind of unusual in the industry, because it’s usually a self-tape, then an audition and then a callback and then you go screentest. To jump right from A to Z was a pretty daunting experience, and it all happened maybe within the span of a week.”

B&B: CARTER CAN'T QUIT QUINN
Though they’re supposed to be keeping their distance, Carter and Quinn can’t keep their hands off each other, and the guilt is getting the best of Carter. “They just feel safe with each other,” explains Lawrence SaintVictor (Carter). “No matter how much they try to deny each other — and they do try — they just can’t stop. Whatever this is, it is not going to just disappear, and they don’t know how to shake it. It’s impacting their personal lives, and their relationships with their family and friends. They just can’t put a stop to these feelings.”
