I found this little thing on Stephen as Tucker. It’s from Daytime Confidential and is the current cover story on SOAP OPERA DIGEST

Cover Story: Blown Away! Batten down the hatches, a twister threatens lives and loves on Y&R! Genoa City is being battered by high winds as a potential tornado threatens the Midwest burg, but the blustery storm also tosses together unexpected couples. For starters, Diane and Tucker are in his apartment discussing her contract when they suddenly end up in bed! “It just kind of happens,” chuckles Maura West (Diane). “It’s written so that youdon’t know exactly who is making the moves. She’s not married, so she can do whatever she wants.”

Uh, isn’t Tucker involved with Ashley? “Tucker has never fallen this hard for anyone like he has with Ashley,” acknowledges Stephen Nichols (Tucker). “He has avoided, at all costs, that kind of intimacy. The other thing, casual sex is Tucker’s habit.” `

After the deed is done, there isn’t much time for afterglow when hurricane-force winds suddenly shatter the windows and broken glass is everywhere. Tucker and Diane are hurriedly getting dressed when Abby and Daniel come knocking. “Abby is concerned for her mom and is looking for her,” West explains. “Abby thinks the most logical place to look is at Tucker’s place. He answers the door and Diane is standing there demurely. Abby didn’t at all expect to find Diane there.”

Abby immediately demands to know what is going on. “It’s funny because there’s really no strong reason or evidence for Abby to be suspicious, except that Diane and Tucker are a little flushed,” smiles West. “But Abby is like this little sleuth and starts asking, ‘Why would you be here in the middle of a storm?’ She does have a point. Tucker explains that they were just discussing business, so that’s their story and they’re sticking to it, but it’s pretty clear that Abby’s not buying it.”

After Abby and Daniel leave, Tucker informs Diane that their romp was a one-time thing and their relationship has to remain strictly business from now on. “Oooh, that stings — and it’s mean,” sighs West. “She is a woman and that’s just not a nice thing to say a few minutes after having sex. It’s hurtful.” But Nichols points out, “Tucker immediately regrets it and this affects him. He sees how much he really does care for Ashley. As disciplined as Tucker is about business, old habits die hard.”

Abby is just outside the door and declares to Daniel that Tucker cheated on her mother with Diane. Ashley unexpectedly shows up and overhears her daughter’s comment, so Abby reveals what she and Daniel walked in on. Ashley escorts them back into Tucker’s apartment, where the sinners insist they were having a business meeting. Ashley seems appeased with their account, which irks Abby. “Abby says to her mom, ‘Look at the way they look at each other. This is not entirely innocent!'” says West. “But for whatever reason, Ashley doesn’t pounce on that right there. Diane has a poker face, but she also somewhat enjoys this. There’s no love lost between her and Ashley, and to watch a powerful man like Tucker McCall be uncomfortable is entertaining to a woman like Diane.”

Looks like Tucker is really feeling bad about cheating on Ashley (Eileen Davidson). At least they’ve added this element. I’d have really been pissed had Tucker actually liked being with Diane (Maura West). Ah, Tucker’s just an old cat on the prowel finding a stray.

I have a new article on Stephen with his Y&R co-star, Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott). Here they explain all about what it’s like to finally be paired in a romantic setting, about chair tossing and Stephen’s hands. Here’s an excerpt:

Digest: What did you both think of the scenes when Tucker threw a patio chair through a window and they had sex?

Davidson: I love doing that kind of stuff. I really like the old-fashioned, dramatic, romantic man-conquers-woman/woman-conquers-man scenes. I think it’s fun. He was throwing the chair to get her attention, not to hurt her.

Nichols: It was about passion, Tucker knew he had to do something to shake her up. It wasn’t violent, it was passionate. For Tucker to go to those lengths means that she’s really gotten to him.
