Among the stars to be publicly joined to the sorrow of the victims and their families, several soap-operas actors, Marj Dusay (ex-Pamela Conrad n░3) and Kim Zimmer (ex-Jodie Walker) first, animated on Sunday September 30 an official charity reception, Broadway Cares, whose collected funds have been transferred to the families of the victims.

Parallel to that, messages of peace and prayers have been launched on the net by these two actresses, to read without waiting : Marj Dusay's message and Kim Zimmer's message.

The news of the soap-opera world in France

Bye bye Passions !

TF6 takes its time !

Fall has arrived, the cable channels finally installed their new grids on their antenna, and... TF6 always does not give any news of Santa Barbara !
