The In Depth Story:  Kaye has some strong opinions about the secret threatening to split his popular on-screen marriage. “Zach trusts Kendall with everything that he has,” he says, and that trust could probably get them past her indiscretion with Aidan.

But Mrs. Slater’s manuscript, written to help ease the pain of Zach’s disappearance, could be the very thing that drives her husband away. In Charm!, a novel available from Hyperion this week, a Kendall clone named Avery has some serious man trouble. “If she’s writing this while she’s in the state of mind that she was in, it makes me as a reader think that there’s something going on between her and Aidan that did not come out of the pain of losing someone or supposedly having lost someone,” he says. “And that’s gotta change everything. Because if I see that somebody failed in their ability to be who they said they would be, for whatever reason, I can forgive that. But if they’re writing a love story at the same time…”

The Slaters’ happiness could be under attack from another direction as well if the sudden closeness between Zach and Greenlee is a sign of future affection. Kaye says he welcomes the on-air friendship and loves seeing pal Rebecca Budig (Greenlee ) on a daily basis but doesn’t approve of the way the soap treated her return and Sabine Singh’s (ex-Greenlee) exit. “What I think is kind of uncool is, ‘The real Greenlee is coming back,”’ he says, referring to ABC’s promos of Budig’s homecoming, “I don’t know who the ‘real’ Greenlee is, I just know that the scenes I did with a very talented young lady are part of the story we’re telling now.”
