Spoilers & Poll Results From July 25th SID

Set your DVR
As Tomas reveals a secret on Mon July 25, John and the Original Todd find themselves in the line of fire. John agrees to help solve the mystery of the 2 Todds on Tues July 26, but Jack can’t help suspecting that he’s the only thing John has on his mind come Thurs July 28. After accusations are made on Fri July 29, everyone wants answers about the Todd situation on Mon Aug 1. As one of the men claiming to be Todd is arrested on Tues Aug 2, Viki finally comes face to face with the original model on Wed Aug 3. Starr issues a challenge to the man who might be her dad on Thurs Aug 4 (Eeeeeee can’t wait for this!!). And while Viki remains confused about the whole situation on Fri Aug 5, John finally reveals which guy is real Todd on Fri Aug. 5.

When will the Big Secret come out?
At this point, Nat and John are pretty much the only people not to know Liam is their son. But that could change soon…

ML/Brody talking – “we have tried to add as much complexity as we can to this story. It’s a good combo of all of us playing our complicated history”. And it is not over yet! This week, the good guy seems to be on the verge of finally getting the family he’s always wanted when he and Nat decide to move in together and raise their son. ML “that’s all Brody ever wanted”. (HUH??)
But when a soap character is poised to have their dreams come true- and they have built their happiness on a lie- it’s time for the rug to be pulled out from under them. Aware that Vimal knows that Liam is actually John’s, Brody does what any man determined to protect what isn’t actually his would – he issues a few threats. And they do the trick. Vimal agrees to not let John know, although it’s pretty clear he’s only doing this for the time being. Given Brody’s history of instability, how far will he go to keep the truth from coming out? Will his dream of having a family turn into a nightmare? ( Me – Would they have him Kill Vimal???)

Polls - No ME or MA in the polls Boooo, Jolie in couples poll # 8.
59% like Jess/Brody, 41% Tess/Ford (Who are these people lol??)

After Tea leaves, John takes a DNA sample from TM and tells him to stay put - but while TM is left alone, will someone discover him?

Tea continues to search for answers to Todd's questionable actions - will Todd make a confession to her?

Todd finds John snooping around his office, but John covers for himself. After John leaves, Jack tells Todd that he thinks McBain is still trying to pin Gigi's death on him. Todd coaxes Jack into going to see Vicker Man - but they have no idea that Rex is still out for justice and has a new plan.

Nate arrives at the premiere and panics when Rick is there, posing as a reputable film maker. Will Rick reveal Nate's secret?

I'm looking forward to Tina/Cords return mostly because I think they need to be there for the finale. I'm still kinda treating the TV end as the end until I see what the new OLTL will look like. I just have a feeling it will be a very different show. I get having a bad taste in your mouth after Tinas last visit it was pretty awful.

I coulda done without Gigis ghost as well but I guess we cant be that lucky.I'm not sure whats worse a Gigi ghost or JPL trying act either way I think my ff button will see alot of use during that.

I havent heard anything about the duration of their stay, I guess I just assumed they were sticking around lol. Even if it is just a cameo as long as its well done I can live with that. Tina and Cord (especially Tina) should be seen before the end.

There have been lots of raves about JPL lately. I still dont see it....Maybe we're missing something. Or they have lost their minds!

Echo worries that Rex is losing his mind.

SOW article Blair Kisses "Original Recipe Todd"


Blair can't believe what's happening when the man with Todd's face pulls her in for a kiss this week. "It's original recipe Todd," laughs Kassie DePaiva (Blair). "It's hot hot hot. She's a little dazed and confused. He sounds, he looks, he smells like her Todd and I think she is blown away by it. Circumstantially, it's pretty crazy, but she's moved by it, for sure."

The entire Manning family is, in a word, confused. "Her breathe is knocked out and the same thing happens with Tea. Everybody is [thinking] 'Huh?' Now it's the tale of two Todds and we'll see how it all pans out."

Where does this leave her burgeoning romance with Tomas? "Her relationship with Tomas certainly is important," DePaiva confirms, "but at every turn he seems to be lying to her about something. So, of course, She's going to be suspicious of that; he tells her one thing and does another. Blair's had enough of that. She's got a lot to think about, but most importantly, she's got to protect her children and their relationship with their fathers."

Loose Lips 7/31

Trevor St John has left the building but not before he showered the cast and crew with a full on luncheon. He also gave Kristen Alderson a bouquet of flowers and I hear it was very very sad. When I go to NY in a few weeks I will get the full story from Trevor. And if you know Trevor he will tell it like it is and be truthful, something ABC doesn't know how to do....John reveals the results of the DNA test to Todd’s family, but Tea argues with the validity of the DNA results, and John calls a meeting with Todd’s family and prepares to reveal the results. Torn between two Todds, while Jack believes he is the real Todd, Starr has her doubts. David has something to do with the reveal also when David has information that may shed some light on the Todd


In a recent interview Florencia Lozano was asked who the real Todd is and she replied “I don’t know if I can tell you that” she smiles before offering a riddled tease “I don’t think I would call him a fraud. It’s not really what you think but probably not totally unlike what you think”........John will gather the entire Manning clan and finally answers who the real Todd is. But John drops another bombshell, further complicating the situation and leaving the group with more questions than answers. John, Brody and Tomas work together to discover the truth once and for all. As they begin to probe into the findings, it turns out that an unexpected individual holds the key that will unlock the mystery of which man is the real Todd Manning....I hear a Roxy and Echo story is coming, sort of a tale of my two moms and how Gigi's story isn't necessarily what it seems. This was mentioned by Zimmer in a recent interview. Could someone have hired a Gigi lookalike to haunt Rex? This Gigi is all done up like a "spirit" and has yet to utter a word even though she can see Rex is in pain and if you know how much she loved Rex her spirit would never do that to him. Rumor has it that Rex finds the date of Gigi's death scratched out. Not sure where this date is, but it did make me wonder about the possibility of a lookalike.


Spoilers From August 8th Issue Of SID


Interview with FL - Interesting comment. Sounds like they are Twins? So dumb!! At least it sure sounds like RH is real Todd.

SID asks who the real Todd is. FL “I don’t know if I can tell you that” she smiles before offering this riddle inspired tease “I don’t think I would call him a fraud. It’s not really what you think but probably not totally unlike what you think” LOL Huh??

Her comments on TSJTodd . FL says Tea can’t turn her feelings off for the man who has been in her life the last 8 years. “She can’t easily do that. She loves him. There’s real complexity to it” Tea is dealing with a range of emotions “terror, disgust, repulsion, fear, but on the other hand she also feels like, please don’t take this away from me”.

The Tale of 2 Todds Mystery Deepens

When John gets the Manning family together and provides the answer to the million dollar question, the family is in for yet another shock. John drops the bombshell, further complicating the situation and leaving the group with more questions than answers.

When Dani has her first encounter with Todd # 1, she is confused and doesn’t know what to make of him. And while Jack makes it perfectly clear that he believes Todd # 2, Blair and Starr have their doubts about him. Likewise, Viki is also trying to make sense of it all. But it soon dawns on her that there is really only one person who can help solve the mystery. Meanwhile, one of the Todds is not satisfied with the DNA test results and demands that a second test be taken.

When Blair pays a visit to Tomas, they share a kiss, but she pulls back. He figures it’s because she’s reeling from her kiss with Todd # 1. But Blair shuts him down, saying her hesitation stems from Tomas secrecy and his role in almost killing Todd #2.

While waiting for the second DNA results, the 2 Todds each make personal appeals to the family about being the actual Todd

Later, Blair takes it upon herself to do something very surprising, and John teams up with Brody and Tomas to discover the truth once and for all. And as this trio begin to investigate, it turns out that an unexpected individual holds the key that will unlock the mystery of which man is the real Todd Manning.

GH has the cover, as usual.

Recurring characters/actors get more screentime

“One Life to Live” fans hoping to catch another glimpse of some of their favorite recurring characters before the show wraps production on its TV run in November, can now breath a collective sigh of relief. In the coming weeks, several of Llanview’s “seen, but not heard” characters will be appearing in upcoming episodes.

Ilene Kristen returns as everyone’s favorite drunken hairdresser, Roxy Balsom, on Wednesday, August 17, when she asks Madame Delphina (Lea DeLaria) to help her make contact with Gigi’s (Farah Fath) spirit. But will the ladies succeed in their efforts, or will their actions do more harm than good?

The following week, on Tuesday, August 23, Peter Bartlett is back as Nigel, despite the fact that he was recently relieved of his duties as the Buchanan’s longtime manservant by the family patriarch’s illegitimate son Rex Balsom (John-Paul Lavoisier). This time around, he is tending to a recovering Clint (Jerry verDorn) at Llanfair. Look for Clint to ask a huge favor of his trusty confident on the anniversary of Asa’s death.

Speaking of Asa, look for Clint’s little brother Bo (Robert S. Woods) to pay his respects at his Pa’s grave site that same day, where he runs into Asa’s grieving widow Renee (Patricia Elliott). Check out pictures of Asa and Gigi’s tombstones, along with a few other spoiler images here (the pictures are from two lucky fans’ studio tour with verDorn).

Also next week, Dorian (Robin Strasser) prepares to leave town to launch her Senate campaign, and the Cramers throw a huge farewell party for her. Among those in attendance will be Dorian’s oft mentioned, now mentally stable sister Addie (Pamela Payton-Wright). Look for Addie to also interact with her ex-husband and brother-in-law David Vickers-Buchanan (Tuc Watkins).

And Saundra Santigo will be returning soon as Buenos Dias Café owner Carlotta Vega. The actress posted on Facebook on July 14 that she “Ran into Whoopi @ the ABC Studios today while shooting some scenes on ‘One Life.’ Like, I literally almost ran into her, and she was so cool. I love people from the Bronx!”


Michael and Marcie return

After nearly a two year absence, Kathy Brier and Chris Stack are set to return to ABC’s “One Life to Live” just before the series ends its run on broadcast television. According to Brier during last nights “Divas” concert at the Triad in New York City, Michael (Stack) and Marcie (Brier) McBain are heading back to Llanview for a few months beginning in October, although the actors have yet to begin filming their first scenes.

The duo join Andrea Evans (Tina Lord) and John Loprieno (Cord Buchanan) as the first set of returning stars to the drama series as it gets closer to its ABC finale on Friday, January 13, 2012.

Also returning is Erin Torpey, who for thirteen years (1990-2003) portrayed the role of Jessica Buchanan (now portrayed by Bree Williamson). Torpey made a return visit to the drama series in 2008 during the shows 40th anniversary episodes that also included an appearance by show creator Agnes Nixon in the role of Agnes, who interacts with Victoria Lord (Erika Slezak) while in heaven. Torpey played Megan Buchanan, Jessica’s miscarried baby with Will Rappaport (portrayed by Jason-Shane Scott), in the episodes. Details of Torpey’s September return have been kept under wraps despite her filming scenes way back on Wednesday, June 29, although it is understood that her return coincides with the departure of David Fumero‘s Cristian Vega (Jessica’s first love on the show). A first air date for Torpey has not been set nor a last air date for Fumero.

Brier and Stack were last seen on the show when Marcie gave birth to her and Michael’s baby boy, Gabriel Thomas McBain, in November 2009.


Prospect Park Executives Visit OLTL Set

Soaps In Depth has learned that executives from Prospect Park met with the cast and crew of ONE LIFE TO LIVE this past Friday. While details of the meeting are still scant, we do know that officials from the production company are thisclose to making deals with the union guilds and the paperwork is in the hands of lawyers. "They're very ambitious and they're very happy to have us and ALL MY CHILDREN," Jerry verDorn (Clint) told In Depth at this weekend's OLTL Fan Club gathering. "The fans [are] not going to see a difference in production. They said to us, 'We did not buy these shows just for their name and [with the intention] to gut them and put them on in a totally different, unrecognizable form. The fans are going to love it."

verDorn's OLTL co-star, Mark Lawson (Brody), agrees. "Prospect Park seems very enthusiastic and very focused on making the show the best it can be. I think they will update the show for the next generation of viewership and make it a show that's competitive."

While there are reports that the online version of OLTL could debut on Monday, January 16, there is no official word yet from either Prospect Park or ABC on when the show's final network broadcast will be. However, sources say that an announcement with additional details about Prospect Park's plans for both OLTL and AMC could come as soon as Wednesday of this week, at which time we may very well learn which actors will be continuing on the soap!

Fall Preview: Family Drama, Surprise Returns & Explosive Secrets

Fall Previews – Family Drama, surprise returns and explosive secrets shake up everyone’s lives

Brother vs. Brother
RC “the battle lines are drawn, Todd wants everything back, so as some of his righteous anger starts to come to the surface, Victor refuses to give up”. And of course both men will stop at nothing to get what they want. RC “we know what they’re capable of”, RC adds the fallout will leave only one result: Devastation.

Desperate Measures
Although a lot of folks in town have figured out the truth about Liam, John’s not among them--- Yet! RC “the best detective in town is still completely clueless, but this information is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode” ( ME – WHEN?? I need a date!)
Meanwhile, Brody has gotten close to having everything he ever wanted in his life and might not want to give up the family he has created with Natalie. RC “Brody is a good guy, but this need for a family will drive him to desperate action”.

2 Big Returns
While family matters draw Tina and Cord back to town at the same time, don’t read too much into that. RC “they don’t necessarily return together. Cord is strongly tied to his father and still has a hand in running BE. Tina left town in disgrace, so she really is a persona non grata at the moment among the Lord Family. But Tina and Cord are definitely going to collide.

Kim’s got a secret
So what is Kim hiding that was so bad David was able to use it to drive her out of town? RC “it’s a mystery that’s going to affect a lot of people. Aubrey is tied to the larger mystery about what Cutter is hiding and what Kim is hiding” And how will Clint react to Kim? RC “it leaves open the question of rekindled romance” and then there’s the Vikki factor now that they are living together. RC “Is either one willing to go back there?"


Kim/Rex/Gigi spoilers

Back in June at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, “One Life to Live” executive producer Frank Valentini alluded to Soap Opera Network that we hadn’t seen the last of Farah Fath despite her character, Gigi Morasco, being killed off. In our Twitter posting that night, we stated “according to Frank Valentini, more surprises in store for #OLTL. Have we seen the last of Gigi? Don’t believe what you see!” Come August, that’s never been more certain!

During the “One Life to Live” Fan Club Weekend, Fath herself shed a little light on her storyline when she shared with a fan that “the storyline’s not over.” So how can that be considering Gigi died in June thanks to carbon monoxide poisoning after being locked in a basement by Jack Manning (Andrew Trischitta), his buddy Brad (Frank Dolce), and Llanview High School cheerleader Hayley (Gaby Leyner)? Well Gigi’s heart may have gone to Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn), which conveniently occurred off-screen, but Stacy’s (played by Crystal Hunt) body was never recovered.

Interestingly enough, Stacy’s best friend Kim (Amanda Setton), Clint’s most recent ex-wife, returns on Friday, August 19. In the episode, the character will learn some interesting information from Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) about the goings on in Llanview and shares these tidbits with a certain someone next week.

We wonder what that means? Hmmm…

All in the Family

When Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) and Natalie (Melissa Archer) arrive in Kentucky at the Spotted Pony Strip Club later this week, fans may recognize the face of the man tending bar behind the counter. A.C. Weary, the husband of Kim Zimmer, who returned to the role of Echo Di Savoy last October after a nearly thirty year absence from the show, has been cast in the recurring role of Theo, the club’s manager. But don’t expect husband and wife to be sharing screen time anytime soon, however.

Weary first airs on Friday, August 19, when he gets the wrong impression about the Buchanan heiress and has a run-in with the young Mr. Balsom. But that’s not all, look for Theo to also have a Buchanan ex-wife on the payroll of his shady establishment.

This is not Weary’s first stint on “One Life to Live.” In 1978 (and again briefly in 1983) he played Dick Grant, the producer of Pat Ashley’s (played by the late Jacqueline Courtney) TV talk show “The View on Llanview,” whom she turned to after learning of her new husband Adam Brewster’s (John Mansfield) shady financial dealings. In true soap fashion, the personable Dick became obsessed with Pat, going as far as kidnapping her as well as her twin sister Maggie (also played by Courtney).

In addition to “OLTL,” he has also directed episodes of “Another World” and appeared as a paramedic on “Ryan’s Hope” in 1978 and as Gary Shaw in “The Edge of Night” in 1984. Other television credits include appearances on “L.A. Law,” “Jake and the Fatman,” and “Father Dowling Mysteries.”


Barrett Helms (Baz) Out!

After learning he was joining the cast of “One Life to Live” in the contract role of Baz on the same day the show was canceled back on April 14, Soap Opera Network can confirm that actor Barret Helms is no longer with the show.

While a last airdate is unknown at this time, sources have confirmed that Helms has already completed filming and his character will be sent to Paris in the coming weeks. Coincidentally, Helms tweeted on July 21 that he had “just finished one of the craziest 13 week periods of my life!!”

For those wondering, 13 weeks is the length of time since beginning a contract that a soap can drop an actor no matter the initial length of said contract. The actor is not given the same courtesy (they must stay for the full duration).

Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming Soap Opera Network interview with Helms along with “One Life” co-star Nafessa Williams (Deanna Forbes), where the two discuss their experience on the soap and its cancellation and how the series going online may not be such a bad thing for fans.

UPDATE 8/18/11 12:42 AM: Helms tweeted the following to his fans last night:
I guess the news broke that Baz is leaving Llanview soon. Just when I was making headway with Starr! Haha. Had a blast, thx for the love!!


Nefessa Williams (Deanna) Out!

Yesterday, we reported that Barret Helms was out as Baz on ABC’s “One Life to Live,” now we can also confirm that Nafessa Williams is also out as Deanne Forbes on the drama series.

According to sources, the actress already wrapped filming and was last seen on the Tuesday, July 19 episode when Deanna received the information she needed on her mother’s whereabouts from porn producer Rick (Austin Peck), who used the information to get her to appear in a porn film with Nate Ford (Lenny Platt), who was being blackmailed by Rick after learning Rick knew about what he did to Matthew Buchanan (Eddie Alderson). After receiving the information, Deanna headed to Los Angeles and made a promise between her and Nate not to ever discuss the details of the matter to anyone else. Unfortunately for her and Nate, their film was shown during the premiere of David Vickers’ (Tuc Watkins) movie, “Vicker Man,” instead of the film he intended to show Llanview.

Williams joined the cast of “One Life to Live” beginning with the Wednesday, March 23 episode, and like Helms, despite signing a lengthy contract with the soap, was informed her cycle wouldn’t be picked up.

Keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming Soap Opera Network interview with Williams along with Helms, where the two discuss their experience on the soap and its cancellation and how the series going online may not be such a bad thing for fans.


Tognoni and Degnan bid farewell to Llanview

According to Gina Tognoni during Saturday’s “Girl’s Night Out” event during the “One Life to Live” Fan Club Weekend, her character Kelly Cramer will be departing Llanview on Wednesday, August 24, when Kelly decides to return to London to be closer to her son Zane. Meanwhile, Tom Degnan‘s Joey Buchanan may not be far behind.

In a soon to be published interview with Soap Opera Network, Degnan explains that Joey finally has the woman he loves in his life and he doesn’t plan on giving her up this time, which is why Joey leaves town to be with his lady.

Before Kelly leaves town, however, look for her, Joey, and the rest of the Buchanan clan pay tribute to Asa (played by the late Phil Carey) on the four year anniversary of his death. In addition, look for her to help her fellow Cramer girls give Dorian (Robin Strasser) a proper sendoff as she exits Llanview to launch her Senate campaign.

Tognoni was honored by “One Life to Live” Executive Producer Frank Valentini and show cast and crew as she taped her final scenes on the ABC soap back on June 24.
