The Moustache’s memoirs The Young and the Restless star ERIC BRAEDEN (Victor) will release his long-awaited autobiography, I’ll Be Damned, in February. Chronicling all aspects of the actor’s life, including his Hollywood career and home life, it was the German-born star’s childhood experiences that proved most gut-wrenching to write about, he says. “It was an emotional ride,” Braeden reflects. “One inevitably lives life on a daily basis and sometimes you don’t take time to reflect, and when you do look back upon certain periods in your life [you] discover deeply buried emotions. The most interesting and sometimes upsetting was childhood and youth, growing up in the most cataclysmic war of all time. The first years in America were interesting but tough times.” Wink at a wedding Weddings are always special on soaps and…

HOME AND AWAY There were shocks aplenty in Summer Bay this year with storylines kicking off with the investigation into who killed Charlotte King (ERIKA HEYNATZ). But the murderer wasn’t revealed until mid-year. It turned out to be Josh (JACKSON GALLAGHER) who was supposed to be blind at the time though his brother Andy (TAI HARA) took the rap at first. Josh later confessed and was sentenced to a long stint in jail but on the way out of the courtroom he and Andy made a daring escape and are now on the run. Two lives were lost when a caravan exploded during a party. Oscar (JAKE SPEER) died at the scene while Hannah (CASSIE HOWARTH) passed away later due to a bleed on the brain. There were also horrific injuries with…

first the ladies

Away from the cameras, the two veteran stars of the rival soaps have nothing but high praise for each other. In the kingdom of Aussie soaps, only one King reigns — and that’s Summer Bay’s Ray Meagher. But when it comes to the queen, there are actually two female monarchs who share the crown — Home and Away’s Lynne McGranger and Neighbours star Jackie Woodburne.

Lynne first joined Home and Away as Irene Roberts in 1992, while Jackie first appeared as Susan Kennedy on Neighbours in 1994. But this is where the matter of who is entitled to hold the record as the First Lady of Aussie Soap becomes a…
