Real Life Drama!

Like something out of a bad James E. Reilly storyline, Days of Our Lives's own Drake Hogestyn was attacked by a crazed maniac and in true John Black fashion, he turned the tables on his attacker.

Hogestyn, who was on a ladder painting his house, says Cheney grabbed and pushed his wife backwards on their patio stairs. At that time, Hogestyn "grabbed him by the hair, spun him around, delivered a right cross to the chin that sent him down the stairs." According to the restraining order the struggle continued for 10 minutes until Hogestyn and his 25-year-old son Ben were able to subdue Cheney by duct-taping the intruder's hands and feet until police arrived.



If he still had a mullet, this paragraph could probably be mistaken for a script circa 1989. Badass!

In all seriousness, that's a truly terrifying event and I am glad that Drake and his family are safe. I also feel that I should admit, in the interest of full disclosure, that I feel the same about Drake Hogestyn that many people feel about David Hasselhoff. He's so cheesy and uncomplicated that it makes me smile. He's the best kind of awesomely bad that there is.

Oh my god, how terrifying for the family. But what a visual of John Black and Lucas Jones throwing down like they're in a Die Hard movie.

Speaking of calling actors by their character's names (disclaimer - I was trying to lighten things up and would never actually call an actor by his character's name because I'm crazy but not that kind of crazy), why is that so common in soap fandom, especially among the uber-crazies? Stalkers of movie actors, or even non-soap TV actors, don't seem to have that affliction.
