I don't believe by any stretch of the imagination it's true. When I google pop culture icon, I find a site from VH1 listing the top 200 pop culture icons. The only ones even remotely associated with soaps or soapish type charactes are JR Ewing, Farrah Fawcett (a soap in her own right), Tony Soprano, Rhett and Scarlett, and SUSAN LUCCI. No mention anywhere of anyone associated with Days, and Susan Lucci was the only daytime soap actress. Here's the link for those who are interested:
Starting with Number 1
And, i know we don't always rely on Wikipedia, since it's human submissions, but here's their definition of pop culture icons:
I don't think most of us going around copying Marlena's hair or saying Marlena-isms or buying Marlena lunchboxes. although there IS a Sid and Marty Krofft Lunchbox that has Electrawoman and dynagirl on one side!!! Metal, even!!)
Anyway, it would also be sad to give Sami, a thirty-something year old woman, a mother figure. Sami needs to grow the hell up. It would make for great soap if Sami DIDN'T have Mommy and Daddy to run and save her ass all the time.
