Bobbie's Solo Album:
Bobbie Eakes just released a single cd in The Netherlands? There are two
beautiful songs on it: ' A Broken Wing' and 'While You were Out'. In a
few days or weeks Bobbie's new album will be released in The Netherlands,
called 'Here and Now'.
Bobbie is honored by SOM:
SOM honors Bobbie Eakes as its Star of the Week in the 24-Nov-1998
issue. During her near-decade tenure as B&B's Macy Alexander Forrester
Chambers, Bobbie Eakes has skillfully tackled a variety of storylines involving
marital infidelity; alcoholism and infertility. But recently, Eakes was
presented with perhaps her most difficult challenge to date - playing an
impending widow, as husband Grant lay dying in his hospital bed. For her
heartrending depiction of a wife holding
vigil at her husband's deathbed, SOM singles Eakes out. Especially touching,
the magazine notes, was Macy's singing to Grant the Bette Midler song "WIND
BENEATH MY WINGS." B&B Supervising Producer John C Zak states that
an instrumental accompaniment was considered, to be played in the background
while Macy sang, but the show felt it would be better to go with Bobbie
singing a cappella as she did. After her excellent work in that scene,
Zak expects more powerful work from Bobbie as Macy deals with her
grief over losing Grant and tries to pull herself out of the darkness.
Macy & Sally in Real Life:
They play a mom and daughter on TV... but SOAPS IN DEPTH tells us that
DARLENE CONLEY (Sally) and BOBBIE EAKES (Macy) have a lot in common off-camera,
as well. Conley says that both are passionate and volatile, while Bobbie
reveals that both do weird things in their sleep, kind of like waking hallucinations.
Also, they have similar tastes in men; when they first started working
together, Conley was surprised during a talk about movie stars that they
liked the same actors.
Bobbie's solo album is almost finished! It will be released on November
7th or 15th, in Holland, Europe.Bobbie is proud to work with one of the
top producers of Europe-Don Cook.
Bobbie was recently in Australia to promote her cosmetics line.The cosmetics
consist of Shampoos,Moisturisers & lots more.She visited around three
