Welcome to our page
dedicated to the
First Super Couple of Soaps,
Doug and Julie Williams

This page is dedicated to our favorite Daytime Couple of all time, Doug and Julie Williams, played by the real life super couple, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes. From the moment they met to the third time at the altar, their love has burned strong and bright, a fact made so much more so because the love we saw on the show was a glowing reflection of the real love they have shared for almost 31 years! From the "Look of Love" that shines in their eyes when they gaze at each other to the songs of love sung to the "Most Beautiful Girl in the World", Doug and Julie will always be the ideal Super couple, in real life and in the reel life of Salem in the Days of Our Lives! Our wish is that someday, that love will burn bright again on the daytime screen in the town of Salem!

Please sign our Guestbook and thanks for visiting,
Lana and Della

27 years and the love only grows stronger!

Happy Holidays with Bill and Susan!

If you were on the Crystal Symphony cruise on September 30th, you shared a wonderful trip with Bill and Susan. They visited Portofino, Italy; Monte Carlo, Monaco; Barcelona, Spain; Palma de Mallorca, Spain; Lisbon, Portugal; Funchal, Madeira, Tenerife, Canary Islands; Bom Bom Island Resort, Principe; Walvis Bay, Namibia; and then disembarked at Cape Town, South Africa.

They did four presentations, more like lectures than performing, talking and showing tapes. Bill talked about "The Music on Your Show of Shows - Part I," then Susan presented "The Golden Days of Soaps". Then Bill did "The Music on Your Show of Shows - Part II," and they finished up together with "Masters of Live TV." All their historical tapes are from the late 40s and early 50s--people love them! And, of course, Susan's tapes from the soaps (mostly Days) are terrific. Bill said they loved every moment.
