Abstract:

For thirty-five years fans of As the World Turns have followed the on-screen antics of Lisa Miller Hughes Eldridge Shea Colman McColl Mitchell. Little did they know, however, that the off-screen adventures of Eileen Fulton, the star of the long-lived soap, were more outrageous than anything in Oakdale. Before Alexis, Sable, Erica, or Dorian there was the not-so-sweet, not-so-simple character Lisa Miller. In 1960 Ms. Fulton created the "much-hated, much-married original Glamorous Scheming Vixen on whose silk-and-sequined coattails a sisterhood of deliciously wicked femmes fatales have clawed their way to celebrity status." Credited with refining bitchiness into an art form, Eileen Fulton has touched the lives and aroused the emotions of millions of viewers.

Eileen Fulton provides a "behind the camera lens" peek at what goes on in the making of a soap: creating plots, the backstage power struggles, the impact of audience reaction on story lines, and the ever-increasing presence of "sex in the afternoon." Ms. Fulton also offers hilarious anecdotes detailing what can go wrong while performing live television five days a week - like the time she was locked inside an oxygen tent and couldn't breathe but had to wait for the commercial break before crying for help. And her remembrances of love and romance with her three husbands are enough to give Elizabeth Taylor a run for her matrimonial money.

Written in Eileen Fulton's characteristically frank, forthright, and funny style, As My World Still Turns will provide soap addicts an opportunity to meet the lady behind the diva they have known for so many years.
