Soaptown Loose Lips Spoilers--12/4

Piecing together spoilers and rumors, sounds like the stress gets to a pregnant Tea. She collapses after her fight with Todd and John rushes her to the hospital. It would be a very soapy twist if Todd causes her (near) miscarriage......What exactly is Todd's deal with Baker? We know what Todd wants from Baker but do we know what Baker is getting from Todd? It has to be more then money. Todd manages to force Tomas to make a video and send it to Blair which devastates her......It's Gigi no its Stacy its Gigi finally the truth comes out look for Gigi and Cutter to have real feelings for one another sooner then later but what will happen when the truth is finally revealed now that Rex is somewhat smitten with Aubrey?....Viki leaves Llanview and heads out west and meets up with Charlie at the Buenos Dias......Viki sees a familiar face while working at the cafe....Rumor has it Todd will finally be arrested on Christmas Eve....With the show over and done it is getting harder and harder to find any info on the finale and as for the cast no word coming from any of them ether sadly.

Soaptown Loose Lips Spoilers--12/11

Lots of speculation on who is moving over to GH, names have been thrown around like baseballs. One name is Bree Williamson who has been rumored to come on and play a mafia princess the other I hear is Michael Easton but for now this is just hearsay. And if you have not seen the pix of Bree Williamson in her new red do check it out. Fabulous look Bree!!......Erika Slezak did a farewell interview and it is a must read.... go to: http://www.erikaslezak.com/Nov11.pdf Make sure you have Adobe Acrobat to read it........Dream sequences coming our way people and oh boy you won't believe your eyes. My favorite Nigel (finally) in drag I love it!! Is Cameron Mathison coming to Llanview to interview David? I saw a picture with the 2 of them and it sure looked that way so I am assuming he is unless it is a real time interview...... The Fraternity Row story is on fire, it is so full of giggles and so much OLTL pass history stories inserted. You have to be a long time fan to pick up on these treaures. What we as fans are having to deal with now is that the show is once again in cancellation. Is Roxy on fire or what? When she gave Natty a piece of her mind it was probably the most sane thing Roxy ever said. This woman is a star!! Why TPTB waited till the show ends to bring her front and center is beyond me. Love ya girlfriend....I am sure or I hope many of you read the main page of Soaptown and saw the headline "Daytime Fans Unite". Tonya Walker made a statement on Dec 7th that is a must read.......If your wondering where Echo has been not to worry. She will not be seen on the One Life canvas until January towards the finale. The Emmy winner said "she had no more airdates but that has clearly changed. "

SID asks the actors about their favorite storylines this year--not really spoilery but an interesting read


Carlivati says its impossible to change cliffhanger ending--

Unlike with All My Children where a closed-ended finale was reportedly taped, One Life to Live's head writer Ron Carlivati was instructed by Prospect Park—the company that licensed the ABC soaps with plans to take them online—to pen several open-ended storylines in preparation for the soap's move online. The scribe tells Soap Opera Digest (on newstands now) there is no way to go back and edit the finale, or shoot new footage to give fan's closure.

"It's impossible. There is no reshooting of anything at this point."

You would think Disney-ABC would at least have the decency to produce a pair of 90-minute All My Children and One Life to Live reunion movies to give the fans closure for these storied shows that financed ABC's primetime pilot development for decades, while entertaining millions of fans and training generations of Hollywood A-listers. But then again, that would be too much like right.


HBS on final day sadness--

Daytime Emmy winner and long time member of the cast of One Life to Live, Hillary B. Smith (Nora Buchanan) took to Twitter this morning to share her thoughts as she prepared to go to One Life’s ABC Studios in New York City to clean out her dressing room and take one more look around. As you know, tomorrow, December 9th, is the final day for the cast to clear out their dressing rooms and belongings.

Hillary’s touching tweets stated, “I am awake and dreading today. It is the day I move the last of my stuff from the dressing room and say good by to my family. I will roll my stuff unaided through the audience waiting in line to see The View like a discarded lover when she has been all used up.”

“After 20 years of caring and bleeding for this show. I feel dismissed. Like we are all being told, “Move along. Nothing to see here.”

“Have to share the morning. Walked in, through and passed all the audience lining up for The View. It hit me… I will be doing the “Walk of Shame” leaving the building pushing and carrying all of my belongings past the sad looks of the audience. I walked into wardrobe to say “Good-Bye” and burst into tears! After hugging, all 5 walked in my dress room, grabbed my things. Your not alone. They walked me through the crowd like an entourage, helped me load the car and hugged, kissed and waved me “Good-Bye”. True Friends! It makes you realize, the little gestures in life are like the arms of a conductor, they bring music to your soul. The lightest touch leaves the deepest imprint. Even a passing courtesy can make someone’s day. This morning will be forever a memory of love.”

The judge of the pie contest is the descendent of Professor Del Fina, who had helped Rex and Gigi travel through time. After the contest, all the Llanview residents head to the airport to return to Llanview, but the airline is oversold and Rex remains behind to take a later flight. Rex and “Stacy” come face-to-face. Rex goes off on “Stacy” who defends herself by swearing she doesn’t remember anything. Rex grows more angry until Cutter interrupts and tells Rex and Stacy the truth. Rex doesn’t immediately accept what Cutter is telling him and is infuriated and punches Cutter out. “Stacy” is concerned at first, but Rex reveals that Cutter is a murderer and tells her she is no better. “Stacy” laments that she cannot remember her past.

John is at the hospital to bring Tea home after her crisis is averted. Todd interrupts as they are discussing him, and Tea unleashes her fury. Todd is alarmed by her hostility. Later, Tea grows anxious that Todd is trying to get closer to Dani and almost goes off on him again, but John holds her back reminding her that she must take care of her unborn baby. John insists Tea stay away from Todd because she’s in danger of blowing the investigation. Dani tells Tea she invited Todd to spend Christmas Eve with them. Meanwhile, Todd is making headway with Jack.

More guests announced for tribute on "The View"

Thank Goodness, The View had the forethought to include (and not forget, because that would have have been a HUGE mistake) the incomporable Robin Strasser (Dorian) to their tribute show on One Life to Live!

It will be great to see Robin and Erika Slezak (Viki), who is slated as the episode’s special co-host, reunited on The View Salutes One Life to Live airing January 13th just a few hours before the final episode of OLTL airs across the county!

In addition, another stellar One Life star, Robert S. Woods (Bo Buchanan) has also been added to the line-up! We had also heard via Twitter from Hillary B. Smith (Nora Buchanan) last week that she would also be appearing on the episode.

I hear the cast and crew had a ball filming these scenes which made a day of fun and it made them forget what is coming.......The truth will finally come out what happened the night Gigi died, but can she convince Shane and Rex that she is the real deal? Bet on it when we will finally see these two on the road to marriage when Rex purposes to Gigi at Llanfair. But what about Aubrey will her world come tumbling down or will Cutter be there to pick up the pieces? Will Clint choose Viki over Kim?.....The coupling of Todd and Blair is not what it used to be, seems they have lost fans or have just turned people off these days. Could the chemistry be gone between these two....Where is Victor?????.... The latest rumor running the mill is that with the recent conversation that David had a child way back when that we will find out who it is before the show ends next year. Any guesses who it will be? Of course it has to be someone currently living in Llanview.....Did you know David's movie The Boy with the Chipmunk Tattoo is one of RC's clever pop ref's -from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Soaps.com Interview: One Life To Live's Jerry verDorn


The Loving Llanview event will be held at the Theatre at Westbury in New York on January 21, giving fans a chance to celebrate "One Life to Live's" 43 years with several of the soap's cast. Soaps.com recently chatted with one such cast member, Jerry verDorn (Clint), to discuss the event, the "One Life to Live" finale and the future.

Soaps.com: So, The Loving Llanview event is coming up next month.

Jerry: Yes, we've got quite a group of people too. Several of them that usually don't come out in public. Michael Easton (John) usually doesn't do a lot of appearances. So, it's going to be a good time. Have you ever been to that theatre?

Soaps.com: I have not.

Jerry: Oh, it's great. A perfect venue for this kind of thing.

Soaps.com: What are you most looking forward to at the event?

Jerry: Well, seeing the people again. I haven't seen them since our last tape day. November 18 or so. I'm going to catch up on what they're doing and what's going on. It's going to be fun seeing the fans express what they feel about everything that's happened and the end of the show on ABC. The way the storyline is going, it's going to be a very…I think they'll like it a lot.

Soaps.com: "All My Children" ended on a pretty big cliffhanger. Will "One Life to Live" end the same way?

Jerry: It's not really a cliffhanger. It's open ended and it's very upbeat and positive. Several huge, years long stories are resolved in the last week. It's a very, very clever ending.

Soaps.com: Are you happy with how Clint's storyline is wrapped up then?

Jerry: Yes. Very much so. I think it not only was fun to do, it made all the sense in the world. If something does happen where we continue somewhere else, it's very easy to continue.

Soaps.com: What was it like to tape the last few episodes?

Jerry: It wasn't much of anything because we thought we were going to go on immediately into another venue, so we didn't have any idea that it would be the last time we would be together. It still may not be the last time we may be together because Prospect Park has 14 months still of finding something to do with the shows. When Erika [Slezak, Viki] and I had the last scene at ABC, there was like about 350 people out there watching the last scene, which is very unusual. Usually it's just the cameramen there. A lot of people who wouldn't go with Prospect Park if it happens were there and they were kind of teary and everything because they had been with the show, some of them since it started on ABC. And of course everyone had cameras, so it was kind of tough for Erika and myself. [laughs]

Soaps.com: Speaking of Prospect Park, you think there's still hope "One Life to Live" will have another life?

Jerry: Yes. I think there's hope because according to their contract they have until, I think, 2013 in which to do something with it. Either sell it to cable or get refinanced and go online again. They discontinued it. They haven't ended it. They suspended it. So, yeah, I think there's a chance.

Soaps.com: Would you still like to be a part of it if they could make that work?

Jerry: If it's on the East coast. I wouldn't go to the West Coast or anywhere else, but if it's in the New York area, yeah, I would do it.

Soaps.com: What are your plans now that "One Life to Live" has wrapped for the time being?

Jerry: Well, I'm just going to lie low for awhile. I'm in the fortunate position where I don’t have to work if I don't want to. The older ones are kind of in that position. It's the people who are in the middle I feel sorry for, who still have kids and mortgages and stuff like that, because it's difficult to find jobs.

Soaps.com: Back to the event, it will be held a week after the finale airs, so the fans will no doubt be emotional. Do you think it will be an emotional time for the actors as well?

Jerry: I think it will. I know it will for Kassie DePaiva [Blair]. [chuckles] She was kind of teary all the last week I saw her at ABC. I think it's going to be kind of cathartic and people will…it will be a good time to get their feelings out about how the show ended and I'm looking forward to that being 90 percent positive because it makes sense. It's upbeat. Frankly, I think it's a much better ending than what "All My Children" had.

Soaps.com: That's good to hear. Many fans were upset with the way "All My Children" ended, especially now that it might never come back.

Jerry: I know. That's really too bad because they could have done it another way. It happened faster for them, so maybe that was the problem.

Soaptown Loose Lips Spoilers 12/25

With only three weeks left I find myself getting sadder and sadder....Ilene Kristen landed a gig on Law & Order as a high strung ex-beauty queen. She films in January. What is so cool is that she didn't have to audition, they came to her and asked if she would do it......No one really knows the final outcome of the show or how it will end. What I do know is that Gigi finally sees Jack at the police station. Tea is there also to help Jack with his arrest and when she sees Gigi she is shocked beyond belief. Tea and Gigi get into a bit of a spat regarding the kids, but the bottom line is someone died and that was Stacy.... so the question is will Jack be charged with murder? .....The recent news regarding any cast member crossing over are getting stronger, I spoke with one of the actors who DOES believe the news about Easton coming to GH. And it's someone who would have spoken directly with Frank. He says he believes Michael may start taping sometime in January, as to what character it is being speculated he will come over to PCPD as John McBain. Could Mac be getting a new detective now that Lucky has left to go to Ireland?....... I have also heard that Ted King may be on his way as well but nothing solid on that end.....The new year or close to it brings a huge blackout to Llanview. Could this be how we will finally get to see those residing at Statesville Prison...What I am hearing is ....Mitch, (Kidnaps Natalie) Troy, (kidnaps Nora and holds her against her will) Allison (will reveal her secret and that maybe Jessica is "really" Clint's biological Father? ) Hannah, (Kidnaps Starr) Cole, (looks for Starr and Lindsey ( helps Bo find Nora) and everyone else imprisoned escapes....Sad news..... It has been mentioned that Trevor St John is not in the finale as previously hoped.


Erika Slezak Holiday Letter to the fans--

“To all my Dear Friends, This will be a somewhat sad ending to the year for me, but at the same time, I feel enormously grateful for all that I have been given: for the wonderful friends I have made through One Life To Live; for more than 40 years of consistent employment; and for the stories and the laughter and the life that I have been privileged to have led. You, our wonderful audience, have made much of that possible, and so I want to thank each and every one of you for your loyalty, and in particular, for your friendship.

At our final wrap party for OLTL, I said that I would not say goodbye, because I believe we will all cross paths again, and so I am not saying goodbye to all of you for the same reason. OLTL may be ending on January 13th, but we will all continue to be friends, and hopefully will see each other again.
For the last 40 years, I have been so fortunate to have had all of you in my life, all of that due to Walter Miller, who has put up with me through thick and thin, and has managed this club so brilliantly. I would like to thank him so much for all his work and loyalty and his friendship. I also owe a big debt of gratitude to Kit (Swanson) Williams and to AJ, without whom none of this would have happened so effectively and efficiently.

I have no intention of retiring voluntarily, so hopefully some kind soul will find a nice job for me somewhere. Whatever happens in my professional life will always be shared with you. I wish all of you a blessed Christmas, very happy holidays, and all the best for 2012. And I do hope to see you all again. With much love and gratitude, Erika”

Week of 1/9

Week of January 9:

After Viki and Clint are shot, Viki will have an out of body experience that will have her late daughter Megan Harrison escorting her around Heaven.

Viki has a lot of company in Heaven.


One Life to Live | Will this ABC soap’s fans be left hanging come Friday, Jan. 13, as their All My Children counterparts were? Mayyyybe not. Though Florencia Lozano, when I visited the set in November, suggested that the “Who killed Victor?” storyline would serve up a cliffhanger in the series’ final episode, I am now hearing that’s not necessarily in the case. What is certain, a source tells me, is that there will be “a major development” in that murder mystery during the sudser’s final hour. Might Tomas be absolved of his fabricated guilt in the crime? Ted King told me to expect a final twist involving his abducted alter ego.

TV Line

In the new issue of SOD they are talking about the final week of OLTL.

Jerry Ver Dorn said the show might rearrange the scenes on the final show so no one will know what the final scene will but he hopes Erika Slezak is in it because that's fitting.

Kristen Alderson said they taped 2 endings for her character and she doesn't know which one they'll use.

As for the stories in the week everyone's still dealing with the prison break/aftermath. Once all that's resolved the characters move on.

Rex,Gigi and Shane decide to leave town and have their goodbyes with everyone

.Destiny gives birth but not in a hospital.

Melissa Archer said that Nat and John's story is left open but it does have some kind of closure to it.

The Fraternity Row also ends. Roxy meets characters played Agnes Nixon,Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini. The characters Frank and Ron are going to play were originally scripted for Prospect Park's Rich Frank but he backed out of it.

In the final week there's a death,a birth and a surprising proposal.


There is an article in TV Guide with Erika Slezak talking about the end of OLTL and it includes spoilers.

Basically a shocking turn happens, during the week of the 9th, due to the Statesville break out, both Viki and Clint get shot. They (Viki and her soul mate Clint) end up in heaven. The photograph is of Erika and Jessica Tuck (Megan) speaking with Clint in the background. There is a reference to how when Viki visits heaven she has a return ticket. Erika also jokes that the only original body part that Viki still has is her appendix.

Full article here: http://www.tvguide.com/News/Erika-Slezak-OLTL-1041253.aspx

Judith Light (ex-Karen) and James DePaiva added to The View tribute to OLTL airing on finale day 1/13. Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Erika Slezak (Viki), Judith Light (ex-Karen), Hillary B. Smith (Nora), Bob Woods (Bo) and Agnes Nixon are also scheduled to appear.

One Life to Live fans, make sure not to miss this coming Monday’s January 9th episode of Good Morning America on ABC. That is when GMA’s special correspondent and former star of All My Children, Cameron Mathison (Ryan) will host a very special segment as the show pays tribute to OLTL as the iconic show draws to an end and becomes part of television history, while the viewers at home get ready to watch the last five episodes as it wraps up its final week of airshows!

We are hoping they will look at the history, interview the actors in the current cast, and gives us a behind-the-scene glimpse of the final days of life in Llanview.

Soaptown Loose Lips Spoilers

I write this last OLTL section with great sorrow. I just can't tell you how sad and angry this makes me...... With only one week left it's all about the prison break and what will happen to our favorites.......Viki and Clint will be shot during the conclusion of the Statesville prison break. Viki will be led to the afterlife by none other than ...you guessed it, her daughter Megan played by Jessica Tuck. Viki has been back and forth to heaven 3 times and I have been told she will return from the dead (again). No word if Clint survives.....The good news is that Rex, Gigi and Shane leave town and bid farewell to family and friends....Destiny will have her baby but not in a hospital.....Melissa Archer said that Nat and John's story is left open but it does have some kind of closure to it......The Fraternity Row has it's final air date the same as OLTL and that show comes to an ending....Roxy meets characters from the show played by Agnes Nixon, Ron Carlivati and Frank Valentini. The characters Frank and Ron are going to play were originally scripted for Prospect Park's but they backed out.....The final week there's a death, a birth and a surprising proposal......After scheduling conflicts reportedly kept her from reprising her signature role of housewife turned prostitute Karen Wolek, Judith Light will join the girls at the View along with long time friend Erika on Friday, January 13, just three hours before the final "One Life" episode, Light will join several of her former co-stars to recall some of her fondest memories of the show during her time there.....Soaptown's columnist Jeremy who writes Llanview Craze will be attending the January 13th 'Celebrating OLTL" and will report on that event. Soaptown's east coast rep Rhonda will also being attending the "Loving Llanview" event, January 23rd and you can bet these two will have some good reporting.

Happy about DePaiva and Howarth. Could've lived without Alderson and Easton. Glad they are keeping the same characters though.
