Soap Queen Deidre Hall Starts the Year by Marrying Her TV Producer Prince
"I always knew he was the love of my life," says Hall, who, like the groom, was tying the knot for the third time. The couple met over lunch in 1982, when Sohmer was still a top executive with NBC and Hall was six years into her residency as Dr. Evans. "Steve proposed to me a lot," says Hall, and the two were even briefly engaged. ("It's difficult to have a relationship where two people are so consumed with ambition," says Sohmer of their breakup in 1984.) The romance started up again after her two-year marriage to TV executive Michael (21 Jump Street) Dubelko ended in 1989. At that point, though, Sohmer decided that he was too pooped to pop the question: "I said to her, 'You want to get married, you propose.' " And so she did, just before her Halloween birthday, two months past her return to Lives after a four-year absence. The occasion was dinner at L.A.'s Patina restaurant. Hall's method was a surprise dessert: a miniature wedding cake topped by figures of the pair—Sohmer's with a cigar in his mouth.
And now forever after. Sohmer, best known for the thriller Favorite Son (he also produced the NBC mini-series), is at work on a new novel; Hall is negotiating spinning off Dr. Evans into her own soap. They plan to buy themselves a house in L.A. (they have homes in Boston and New York City) and start a family. (Sohmer has a 28-year-old daughter, Ilisa, from his first marriage.) Ambition, says Hall, is no longer a problem. "I was saying to Steve, 'What's next?' And he said, 'Well, I've got my golf game, and I've got my writing, and I've got you. I've run out of reams.
