(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- It was only a matter of time before speculation began about the the possibility of Roger Howarth returning to his "One Life to Live" roots soon after word broke late last year that CBS' "As The World Turns" would be ending its 54-year run on television. Now nine months later, Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively that Howarth will indeed be returning to the ABC soap in the near future.

"You thought the tease a couple weeks back with Tea proclaiming this isn’t Todd as she pointed to a picture of Roger Howarth was not the start of something bigger? Think again," says a setside source.

Speaking of Tea [Delgado], rumors have been running rampant that portrayer Florencia Lozano is out now that her character looks to be on death's door. When pressed for comment, an ABC spokesperson would only say "tune in tomorrow for Tea's fate."

A first airdate for Howarth has not been set, but we've been told to expect him on screen as early as December or January. But what does news of Howarth's return mean for Trevor St. John? It wouldn't be much of a stretch for the actor to have been playing an impostor after all this time as he originally joined the cast in May 2003 in the role of Walker Laurence, only to be revealed to be Todd Manning albeit with plastic surgery in August of that same year. We've been assured, however, that the actor's job is not in any danger.

Earlier this week there was a big deal made out of a "One Life to Live" cast meeting, which took place earlier today at the shows Manhattan studio. Could Howarth's return have been on the agenda at the big meeting? Will he be the real Todd Manning or will "One Life to Live" pull a "General Hospital" and have Howarth return as a new character leaving St. John in the role of Todd ala how "GH" handled the return of Sarah Joy Brown, who originated the role of Carly Corinthos only to find Laura Wright occupying the role? Stay tuned to find out.

"One Life to Live" airs Weekdays on ABC. Anytime on ABC.com."


Via Daytime Confidential:

Starr-Crossed No More. Don't be surprised if you see Cole Thornhart heading out of Llanview soon. Sources say Brandon Buddy really is exiting the sudser. Word is, Buddy's tweet in June about leaving One Life to Live was the real deal all along, however the brass "encouraged" him to recant the social networking slippage. You may remember, Buddy claimed a hacker broke into his account and posted that he was quitting his J-O-B. SPOILER ALERT: Look for Cole to exit alive, but not exactly well.


(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Fall begins to heat up in Llanview.

Kearran Giovanni returns as Dr. Vivian Wright on Thursday, September 2nd, when the doc and her colleague and former lover Greg each vie to become Llanview Hospital's new Chief of Staff. Also look for Vivian to give Jessica some medical advice. The character was last seen in February when she accompanied her current boyfriend (and Greg's brother) Shaun to watch Snoop Dogg's performance at Capricorn.

Remember the audition script that was released last month for a Tahiti Cop? While the name of the actor cast in the bit part is unknown, expect the scenes to play out on screen starting on September 2nd as well. Watch for John to arrive in Tahiti after learning that Eli has been taken into custody on the tropic Pacific island, only to discover that the man under arrest is really Eli's brother Ross.

Kassie DePaiva reveals that she recently taped a bunch of scenes, tweeting on Monday (August 16th) that she was "Coming off work week where I shot 14 episodes" before going on vacation. DePaiva also states that gets "Do a little fundraising 4 CHC & write beautiful song (hopefully 4 'OLTL') with great songwriter Victoria Shaw."

Jerry verDorn revealed last week in his fan club newsletter that "What a storyline we just started for 'OLTL'/Clint. Family in-fighting, dirty play, a new romance and a new employee at Buchanan Enterprises. Plus some bombshell castings news." While the casting part of his statement remains a mystery at this time, we can tell you that Clint wants to groom a certain member of the next generation of the Buchanan clan for a future at BE. His decision will be met with resistance from family and friends, however, who feel that the youngster is crossing over to the "dark side." Also, Clint meets and takes a shine to a certain young lady who shares a connection to another member of his family.

And Matt Walton and his wife Alecia have become parents for a second time. On August 4th, they welcomed baby boy Greyson James into the world. Walton commented to Soap Opera Digest shortly before the birth that "It's been wild. Everything's been falling into place." The Waltons also have another son, Ava, who is five.

"One Life to Live" airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Anytime on ABC.com and SOAPnet.com. Check local listings.


(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Less than a week after news broke that longtime "Guiding Light" star Kim Zimmer was returning to "One Life to Live" to reprise the role of Echo DiSavory (which she last played in 1983), comes word that she has already begun taping scenes for her October 1st return to Llanview.

Zimmer posted the following message on her fan site last week "Hi all! Yes it's true I will be re-visiting the halls of One Life To Live starting this week on Thurs. [August 19th]. I'm very excited to be working with old friends and new ones. I believe Oct. 1st is my first air date."

In addition, her new co-star Melissa Archer (Natalie) tweeted on the same day that "I had a great morning working with Erika Slezak, Brian Kerwin, & KIM ZIMMER!!!!" Archer then proceeded to embrace Zimmer, tweeting "Welcome to 'OLTL!!' Great working with you today!!"

Terrell Tilford (Greg), who worked with Zimmer on "Guiding Light" from 1998-2001, also welcomed her to the set saying that he was "thrilled Kim Zimmer is joining 'OLTL' ... one of the absolutely most down-to-earth people in this crazy business. Her whole family is great! Can't wait to kiss her face! Just had the most incredible moment with Erika Slezak and Kim Zimmer...Icons! And so down to earth...love 'em! Great to see all the fans outside of ABC/NY studio...wow!!! Heading to set...let's get 'em... Yeah? But who?" And Matt Walton (Eli) wrote that "Kim Zimmer in da house!!!!!!"

The 55-year-old Zimmer has won four Daytime Emmys, in addition to several Soap Opera Digest Awards and Soap Opera Update MVP trophies.

In other news...

Andrea Sooch has been cast in the dayplayer role of Dorian's Secretary and will air on Monday, August 23rd. The actress appeared as Lena in two episodes of "All My Children" in 2007, and as Alice Henry in a 2007 episode of "Guiding Light." She has also guest starred in "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and "The Shield."

Jason Tam (Markko) will be returning to "OLTL" this fall according to SOAPnet.com, despite rumors that the actor, who took the summer off from his day job to participate in a Shakespeare theater program, was leaving the show.

It appears that the stars of "OLTL" aren't the only ones pimping the show these days. Late last week Laura Wright (Carly) tweeted that "I heard from. Really good source to watch One Life to Live this week!!!!! It's gonna be GREAT!!!! Watch it and tell me what u think!!! Don't forget to watch One Life to Live. Crazy great week!!!"

The song "Talk Like the Streets" by Imaginary Friends, which was played during the Todd/Téa New York City 'bucket list' scenes, is now available for purchase on iTunes.

From the Twitter file...

Melissa Archer hints that there are some John and Natalie scenes ahead in the coming weeks, tweeting that she "Had so much fun working with Michael Easton today [August 17]!! Maternity clothes are pretty cute these days, maybe I should by a pillow & hang out in the expecting stores...thoughts? Had a great day [August 18th] working with Mr. Easton again!! I love this forensics stuff!" Also look some more scenes featuring Natalie, Jessica, and Brody tweeting to co-star Bree Williamson that "it was so nice working with you & Mark [Lawson] today [August 20th]!! I miss you!" And on August 17th she wrote that "I had fun working with Hillary [B. Smith] and Bobby [S. Woods] yesterday!! Have an awesome week beautiful!!"

Kassie DePaiva (Blair) tweeted on August 18th that she "Worked all day with Trevor [St. John], Billy [Warlock], Matt [Walton], & Michael [Easton]. Home relaxing with glass of wine. Jimmy took JQ to Jonas Brother's Camp Rock 2 Premiere."

And Lenny Platt (Nate) commented on August 17th that he had a "Great day. Had my first scenes with Michael Easton. Been looking forward to working with him since I started."

Fall Preview

-"Viki is going to have big story. Somebody from Viki's past is going to blow into town and shake up her world, " teases head writer Ron Carlivati. And Viki is not the only person who has a connection with her/him."

-"We have a big rivalry with Cole/James/Starr, and Hannah is only complicating matters. Those two forces of Hannah and James are pulling at the couple."

-"Two pregnant girls and three possible fathers. It's a great problem to have."

From SID:
The real reason why Tea has to DIE.

Yep, that's right, folks, OLTL's Tea is movin on, meaning FL is out. RC weighs in on the soaps controversial decision to kill the character off.

When a beloved character acquires cancer, viewers always anticipate a miraculous cure. However, that isn't the case for Tea, who succumbs to cancer this week. Although many consider it a shocking decision to kill off one of the soap's most popular heroines, Carlivati reveals that ultimately it boiled down to presenting an unexpected plot twist that viewers won't forget.

"It was a way to take the story to a new level," the wordsmith tells SID. "For a mother to have to say good bye and leave her child behind is probably one of the most heartbreaking things that someone can go through. We thought it would be a really emotional story and we could tell it from every angle" The plot twist also provided a forum in which Tea and Blair became frienemies, ending their ongoing feud. "It allowed us to really deepen the relationship"

In addition, the headwriter remarks that Tea's fatal diagnosis has also put another aspect of Todd's personality on display, because for once, his money and power weren't enough to save the love of his life. "To have Todd in a situation where he has to realize there's nothing he could do but be there for her shows real growth for the character," RC points out.

As for his own feelings about Tea, who first came to Llanview in 1997, RC doesn't mince words. "I love Tea". However, he admits that the way in which the story was written really left no hope for her to survive. "While there have been successes with a lot of brain tumors, we really set it up as the kind of tumor that is not something you can really recover from," explains RC. "We really did tie our hands in that way, but we really wanted to make it as serious and dire a diagnosis as you can have".

At press time, a rep for OLTL wouldn't release FL's final air date.


I'd take the final part about Tea with a grain of salt, I really dont think she'll die for real. With no final airdate and no exit interviews from FL, it seems fishy to me. Also with spoilers she'll "die" off screen it makes it even more fishy. She could indeed be out but I'm not buying it just yet.

You are most welcome. I always liked Tea but more so lately. She even makes Todd (or is it fauxTodd?) likeable. I agree this story has been very well done. The casting folks also did a great job casting Dani, as I totally buy her as Todd/Teas kid, even with the screwy age stuff. Cant wait to see how it all plays out!

Blind Item:
How Dead Is Dead?

Think you've seen the last of One Life to Live's Florencia Lozano (Tea)? According to a setside source, the actress was still taping scenes as recently as last week. Is OLTL pulling a switcheroo?


With the recent announcement Brandon Buddy is out the newest announcement spoiled by SON is that Roger Howarth will return. ABC will only say "We don't comment on rumors". There are so many different scenarios that all I can say is we will just have to wait and see....Sources have now revealed that the so called big meeting was not to announce the return of Howarth, or that the show is being canceled, but to let all the actors know that tweeting and face book was to be only for personal use and not to discuss any stories or future stories, and in no way discuss any activity on set. They recently did the same at GH so I guess AMC is next. Talk about freedom of speech!!!!....How about dear old Uncle Clint putting David in jail for 20 yrs, but my darlings you ain't seen nothing yet! With David locked away for his trickery to get rid of Kim, now Clint will be going after Matthew to get even with Bo for taking Nora away. We have just seen the tip of the iceberg when Uncle Clint takes Matthew under his wing, you will be amazed how rotten this kid can really be. Will Bo and Nora realize in time what their son is becoming or will it be too late?....Where has Roxy Balsom been? Ilene Kristen is one of the most talented and respected actresses in soaps today and she hasn't worked in 3 months. She has over twenty five years of loyalty and dedication to the genre, and especially to ABC. Her character of Roxy Balsom is an inspiration and has much untapped potential. It's time she has her "own" story!

1st day on set pics

Soapnet September Preview

One Life to Live roars right into September in the midst of one of the most intense storylines of the year: Blair's wedding to secret psychopath Eli Clarke is about to go 18 kinds of haywire, and the fallout will be felt all through the coming month. First things first: Eli must be dealt with. He's got Blair in Tahiti for a quickie wedding, his brother Ross has come out of the woodwork, and then Blair gets the proof that Eli's a killer (yes! She does!). All hell is going to break loose, and citizens of Llanview will soon be rid of Eli forever ... or will they? If there's anything we know about a good villain, it's that they're never truly vanquished. Case in point: Expect to get more insight into what exactly Eli and Greg's plot against poor, dead Tea was.

But even when Eli isn't directly trying to harm our favorite Southern, formerly-Asian chanteuse, his underhanded machinations are about to blow up in everybody's face. Starting with Todd. Todd's going to have to be there for Danielle in the aftermath of Tea's death. Which is just an example of blessings coming in depressing packages -- because it ends up bringing dad and daughter closer. So things seem all fine and dandy for Todd and Danielle (minus the whole "Tea's dead" thing) ... except, remember how we mentioned Ross Rayburn? You know, Danielle's adoptive father? Yes, he's on the scene -- and things aren't going to be so rosy where the Manning family is concerned. Don't forget that Ross and Danielle are pretty tight. Looks like Todd has another obstacle

Elsewhere, Starr and Langston start college and immediately find themselves in a class they wish they could drop. That's because the class is taught by FORD. If you suspect that this is the perfect opportunity for him and Langston to get back together, you may well be right. But two things to consider: 1) One of them is lying to the other about something, and 2) Markko returns from film school. So ... not so fast, Ford. Also, is Ford like the youngest college professor ever? Meanwhile, Starr decides that she can't see James anymore, because they've clearly both got feelings for each other [well what's Cole gonna say about that?]. And it gets worse for James as he finds out he can't afford to stay in college. He may end up finding some help from a very unlikely source.

So what is up with Clint? Obviously, he's kind of embracing his dark side ever since he kidnapped and jailed David Vickers on David and Dorian's wedding day. Kelly commissions Rex to find out just what happened to David (so Dorian can regain some of her sanity) -- but when Rex gets too close to the truth, Clint may take some action that would make his beloved KIM blush. Oh, and don't think Bo and Nora get off easy either. Because Clint might strike them where it hurts the most.

Speaking of Kelly and Rex, their close work together investigating Eli has created a bit of a bond between them. Does Gigi have anything to worry about? Or is there someone in Llanview she's going to start spending time with?

Meanwhile, Jessica and Natalie are still struggling with the unknown paternity of their children. This month, look for Brody or John to finally learn the truth that the baby their significant other is carrying may not be theirs. Yes -- one of them learns the truth. No joke.

All this, PLUS: Hannah finds herself in an unusual living arrangement, and a new couple may be hitting the town in Llanview. But one half of the couple's motives may not be on the up-and-up. Any guesses as to who?

And September is gonna end with quite a bang, because come October 1, multi-Emmy winner Kim Zimmer arrives in town as Echo DiSavoy (which is sort of an awesome name). Hold onto your hats.


Not major OLTL news but I know we have a few Buffy fans around here so this might be of a little interest to you...
Kristine Sutherland, best known to audiences as Sarah Michelle Gellar's clueless mum Joyce Summers on The WB/UPN hit "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997-2003), has been cast in the recurring role of a new Dean at Llanview University, and will factor into at least one of the soap's upcoming fall storylines.

Look for the actress to first air on Friday, September 17th when Langston puts her plan to get Ford fired from his teaching job at LU in motion. And, with so many characters hanging around the campus in the coming months, it is likely not the last we will being seeing of the new Dean either.

In addition to "Buffy," Sutherland also appeared in the 1989 film "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids," along with guest spots on "Remington Steele," "Easy Street," and "Providence."

"One Life to Live" airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Anytime on ABC.com and SOAPnet.com. Check local listings.


Next to go?

While reports were stating Brandon Buddy is set to exit ABC's "One Life to Live" later this fall when his contract expires, Soap Opera Network was unable to confirm the news through proper channels, but sources have since confirmed that Buddy will in fact be leaving the soap in the coming months.

Since news of Buddy's possible exit first broke on Daytime Confidential last week, Soap Opera Network has learned from insiders that Buddy's exit was a "mutual agreement" between the soap and the actor. This development doesn't come as a surprise as in June of this year Buddy's Twitter account reported that he had chosen not to renew his contract with the drama series. While said post was later claimed to have been the workings of a hacker, it took four days for the actor to respond, which had some wondering if there was a hacker at all.

Buddy joined the cast of "One Life to Live" in October 2006 portraying the role of Cole Thornhart.


While details are slowly coming through, Soap Opera Network is hearing that Farah Fath might be next to exit the drama series this fall. Fath joined the cast in October 2007 portraying the role of Gigi Morasco

Rumors are swirling that Lea DeLaria will be returning to "OLTL" for a few episodes this fall as Madame Delphina, and that she would tape her scenes in September or October. However, this has yet to be confirmed.

Kassie DePaiva (Blair) tweeted on August 18th that she "Worked all day with Trevor [St. John - Todd], Billy [Warlock - Ross], Matt [Walton - Eli], & Micheal [Easton - John]. Home relaxing with glass of wine. Jimmy took JQ to Jonas Brother's Camp Rock 2 Premiere."

"One Life" has released a new casting call, this time for the role of "Agent Gillespie." The scene opens with "Chris Fisher" telling FBI agents that the boys will be coming home soon, once they (the feds) learn how to trace a call. "Gillespie" tells him that GPS device in the boys' cell phones have been disabled. Chris wondered how they accomplished that, to which Gillespie replies that they must have had some prior experience with that sort of thing. He goes on to say that they have their equipment set up to try and trace and record any calls the boys may make. Chris, getting upset, asks what happens if they don't call. As the scene ends, Gillespie says that he isn't sure why they haven't called yet. However, when he does Chris needs to keep them on the line. That way the call can be recorded and checked for background noises, which could yield clues to their whereabouts.

Here is more information about the casting call released last month for "Nurse Cogswell." The scene opens with the nurse telling "Robin Monroe" that she doesn't know where her husband went. When Robin asks about her daughter, she responds that she didn't see her. Worried, Robin comments that they both said that they would be there when she woke up. Nurse Cogswell tells her not to worry, and that she is certain they'll be right back since they know she is waiting on them. Getting hostile, Robin tells her that she wants to call her husband, and orders the nurse to bring her a pone when she learns there is not already one in the room. The nurse responds that, per Dr. Jeffreys' orders, she is not to be disturbed. Robin says that it is too late for that, however the nurse remains adamant that she cannot disobey the doctor's orders. Fuming, Robin tells her she wants to speak with the doctor herself. However, she tells Robin that unfortunately he had to leave as well. Robin asks why everyone seems to be gone. The nurse tells her she will try to reach the doctor and ask him when he will be returning, and that he may know when her husband will be coming back as well, but that for now she needs her rest.

She leaves the room and encounters Dr. Jeffreys in the hallway. She relays Robin's request to the doctor, who says that he doesn't know where her husband is, and tells her to not give her a phone under any circumstances. Even so, Nurse Cogswell reminds him that Robin is getting stronger and even more determined to see her family. Dr. Jeffreys insists that she is not to contact them yet. The nurse replies that she does not understand what is going on, however the doctor reminds her that her job is simply to carry out his orders. Furthermore he instructs her that there is a very good reason why "Mrs. Monroe" is not ready for visitors yet. The nurse points out how frustrated she is becoming. The doctor tells her to give Robin a sedative and keep her calm, to which the nurse says she will do her best. As the scene ends, Doctor Jeffreys says that, as soon as he is done with her, Robin can see anyone she wants to.

And there are rumors that "OLTL" is casting "Eddie," who is described as in his "40's, early 50's, underneath his hot, handsome, sexy, charming exterior lies an extremely violent and abusive nature. Heavily recurring role starts in October."

Just to set the record straight Eli was not supposed to turn out big bad and evil but that all changed, Eli's murdering ways came after contract negotiations for Walton fell through. Is it the end of Eli? Eli’s agenda seems complicated, but there’s a point and an end game. He’s the gift that keeps on giving, so residents shouldn’t rest on any laurels...... The return of Kelly Cramer has disappointed viewers and TPTB are scrambling to fix it. Trying to find the right connection with actors can take a toll on many but it seems like they may have gotten it right as we may be heading towards a Rex/Kelly relationship. It appears the fans never really warmed up to the Gigi/Rex pairing. With college in the horizon for Gigi and the recent status of Tika Sumpter going to recurring, Gigi and Cristian may just be next. But that may not ring true if Farah Fath decides not to renew her contract as rumors say. In an interview Fath didn't hesitate to mention she would love to return to LA and her old stomping grounds at Day Of Our Lives. “If the opportunity arose I would definitely jump at the chance to reprise the role of Mimi and bring her back to Salem." I say don't let the door hit you on your way out. I know one Craze columnist who will be jumping for joy. And it may not end there for couples when John finds out what Natalie and Brody did.

Soap Opera Digest has just learned that John Wesley Shipp has been cast in the role of Eddie, the much-mentioned bad dad of the Ford brothers. Known for his long-running role as Mitch on DAWSON'S CREEK, soap fans will also remember Shipp as evil Doug from 1985-86 on AS THE WORLD TURNS and hunky Kelly on GUIDING LIGHT from 1980-84. Look for Eddie to start making trouble in Llanview in early November.


(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- In addition to all the new characters coming to Llanview this fall, fans can also look forward to seeing a few familiar faces as well.

With two of Viki's children already in Llanview (Jessica and Natalie), and another on his way back home (Joey), it was only a matter of time before her eldest son Kevin returned to Llanview as well. According to a message posted Thursday evening on his Fan Page on Facebook, "Dan [Gauthier] will be returning to OLTL for a few episodes.. . no air date yet." SON will continue to follow the story and bring you details as they develop.

Gauthier became the 11th actor to tackle the character of Kevin Buchanan when he stepped into the role in 2003. Despite being fired from "One Life to Live" in 2006, he returned briefly in August of 2007 (for the show's 10,000th episode), and then again in October and November of 2009. Gauthier last appeared as Kevin in March of this year.

Gauthier won't be the only familiar face returning to Llanview this fall. Tonye Patano will appear again as Phylicia Evans (and presumably Frankie Faison as her husband Richard Evans as well) during the first week of October when Greg is rushed to the hospital by John McBain, who finds him near death as a result of Eli injecting him with a potentially lethal drug. On Tuesday, October 5, John shocks Mrs. Evans by telling her of her son's connection to Elijah Clarke.

Wondering what has brought Markko Rivera (Jason Tam) back to town? Well, it isn't because of his feelings for Langston, that's for sure. On Monday, September 27, Markko tells his ex that he came home for his parents Aurelia (Ada Maris) and Ernesto (David Piñón) because his father needs non-life threatening surgery.

And, are Ross Rayburn's (Bill Warlock) days in Llanview numbered? On Wednesday, October 6, Ross is shot and pushed into the Llantano River by Eli during a confrontation between the two brothers. Later Todd pulls him from the river just as Dani arrives on the scene...but will it be too late?

In other news...

Congratulations for Kathy Brier (ex-Marcie), who wed her fiancé Jason Munt last weekend.

Sight for sore eyes? Tom Zeman (Morgan Guthrie) and Saundra Santiago (Carlotta) both made appearances earlier this week.
