Soap Opera Stars Dish on Summer Vacations

at . Comments

It's true: soap opera stars go on vacation just like everyone else.

Below, thanks to, a handful of daytime drama favorites tell us how they spent this summer traveling:

Kassie De Paiva (Blair, One Life to Live): My family is going to Italy in August - to Venice. And, I’ve never been so I’m really looking to have some nice wine and great food. We’re staying for ten days and will be taking day trips all over northern Italy.

David Chisum (Miles, One Life to Live): I’m going to see family in Atlanta.

Kate Linder (Esther, The Young and the Restless): I have no idea, since I’m the celebrity spokesperson for ALS, and it takes up a great deal of time. My brother-in-law suffers from Lou Gerghig’s Disease and I am out there trying to raise awareness.

Brandon Buddy (Cole, pictured, One Life to Live): Maybe go back home to Texas.

Rachel Melvin (Chelsea, Days of Our Lives): I never go on vacation. I take after my parents. I’m actually moving and I’m working quite a bit so I’m not going to be able to go anywhere.

Gina Tognoni (Dinah, Guiding Light): We are actually leaving first thing in the morning for Riviera Maya, in Mexico, about 30 miles south of Cancun.
