If you weren't able to ask them a question yesterday, now you've got a second chance! So start submitting those questions in NOW.
Today’s Love on the Chatline, is also being brought to you live from the NATPE convention in New Orleans. The convention is a large gathering of television programming executives.

NBCshowHost:
This chat is based from NBC’s interactive booth directly on the convention floor. Our guests today, January 15, include AMY CARLSON and TIM GIBBS of "Another World"; VANESSA DORMAN and PETER BARTON of "Sunset Beach" and JOSEPH MASCOLO and TANYA BOYD.
Please note: DIEGO SERRANO is not feeling well will be unable to join us for today's chat. He sends his regrets to all his fans in cyberspace.

NBCshowHost:
All right let's get started.... welcome Timothy Gibbs from "Another World" Tim_Gibbs:
Hello everybody from NATPE

NBCshowHost:
Here's the first question...
Timothy Gibbs: how do you feel about the changes in Amy's character? (Wendy, Topeka, KS)
Tim_Gibbs:
I'm not surprised by the changes. Josie is like raw nerves; very responsive to what is happening around her and everything affects her and changes her

NBCshowHost:
Do you think AW would be interested in a tour of America to get more people to watch? Carla Marie Williams-University of Mississippi
Tim_Gibbs:
I would love to tour the country on behalf of the show write a letter to 30 Rock

NBCshowHost:
Amy Carlson has just joined us... welcome Amy!
Amy_Carlson:
Hi everyone,

NBCshowHost:
Amy, I love your new look. Was it a hard decision to make such a drastic change? Did you have to get "permission" before making the changes? Keep up the good work! I hope 1997 is much kinder to Josie! Missy in Indiana
Amy_Carlson:
I had to get permission to cut my hair and now I just keep cutting it and changing it but that's fun for me thanks so much, I hope Josie gets a break too.

NBCshowHost:
Tim and Amy: When are YOU GUYS getting married? Pam from NC
Amy_Carlson:
I don't think we are. I think that there some big trouble brewing for Josie and Gary but you never know.

NBCshowHost:
For all three of you.... Hi, I'm Stacey from Michigan and I was wondering if being on tv presents alot of stress because I just finished a psychology presentation and that totally stressed me out...what's it like to keep up with jobs and lives at the same time?
Amy_Carlson:
I think the stress lies mostly in the pressure I put on myself to do well and I think that it's not so different in television as it is in any job the added pressure in tv comes from the amount of people who see my work.

NBCshowHost:
jason:AMY, TIMOTHY WELCOME.HOW DO YOU LIKE WORKING WITH A EX-DAYS
ACTOR ROBERT KELKER-KELLY?

Tim_Gibbs:
Yes it is the only music video that I've done and what a cool way to start
