One Life to Live’s Ilene Kristen (Roxy) is this week’s special guest star in the next installment of Gregori J. Martin’s prequel to The Bay...Far From The Bay.  Kristen debuts as Liza Garrett ( Sara’s aunt) who runs into amnesiac Peter on the streets of New York City. As Liza pours her heart out to Peter, and gives the audience at home the backstory of her character, Peter (played by Kristos Andrews) registers no recognition of what she is talking about, or who she is.

Ilene Kristen reminds us once again why she is one of soap operas greatest treasures giving another solid performance with many levels and emotions.

Now, watch the new webisode of Far From The Bay after the jump! And, let us know if you are digging the new web series.

The BAY is AMAZING!!! Kristos is carrying this segment of the show so well and Ilene looks GREAT!!. Another great webisode…keep it commin!! thank you for posting these Michael !!!

Another great webisode! I love Ileen and Michael O’Leary! Having these seasoned soap stars not only helps to mentor those just starting in the business, they also bring quality to the show! Fabulous casting Gregori! Loving the history lesson about Peter! Kristos is making the character his own!


Ilene rocked in this! I thought Far From The Bay was a great idea, but with each episode I’m more and more impressed. Really, really good stuff!


Wow, I have been away and missed these episodes of Far from the Bay. Just got caught up and am loving this whole thing! Loved the guy from Steamboat and Ilene…and that dad, kid and grandmother in that first episode. Awesome!


I love The Bay and was so excited to learn about Far From the Bay. It has not disappointed! I’m really interested in what’s going on with Peter, but it’s been so fun to see all these guest stars too. Especially Ilene — love her! Can’t wait to see the rest of the Garretts in


whoops, I hit submit too soon. I can’t wait to see the rest of the Garretts in Season 2 — especially Sara & Lee!!


Loved Ilene’s appearance on Far from the Bay. It was a fun way to get some backstory for her and she did great as always. Looking forward to more from Far from the Bay and Season 2 of The Bay.


I think the casting of the webisodes is really good. These guests are shining, and I mean bright. I especially thought Ilene was just … well, so Ilene. Crazy good. She can be counted on pretty much no matter what she’s cast in, it seems. I hope to see her in the actual Bay webisodes, too! She could really do well in scenes with MBE’s Sarah. Teriffic casting there. I hated that abusive father — so, good casting there, too, effective! Again, all of these guests, inlcuding the little boy, were spot on. The edginess to the cinematography had kind of got me. Very nice job all around.


Really enjoying Far From the Bay. The guest appearances are a lot of fun and it was great seeing Ileen. Hope to see more of her in the future. Can’t wait for the 2nd season of The Bay to start too!!


Love it! Cant WAIT to see what happens next for Peter’s journey here !!!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

By now, many of you have come across and seen that Michael Fairman On Air On Soaps has evolved into the new and exciting platform, Michael Fairman TV.

I hope you take the time to tour the new site, and enjoy its new look, new features, and extended coverage; which will focus on, and include, not only your beloved daytime soap operas, but primetime television drama, a slice of reality programming, as well as popular streaming and digital series.

This site has been a long time in the making, and we’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to make this transition as smooth as possible.  As with any change, we know that it will take some time for all of us, including me, to get used to it, and adjust to it.

I truly appreciate the community that we have built for the last 10 years, and I value each and every one of you.  As with any new launch, there will be small tweaks and revisions along the way that do come up.  Our goal is to make the best user experience for you, and to bring you the news, interviews, and coverage that you expect from the Michael Fairman brand.

I know many of you are already saying you miss the old Michael Fairman Soaps, but this is an upgrade, not a demolition.  That being said, Michael Fairman Soaps was no longer sustainable as is.  The site needed to grow, evolve, change, and modernize with the times. With modernization, part of that is making the site accessible, functional on mobile phones and devices, which we now are.  While some things can’t remain the same forever, we are always interested in your input.

I am very proud and excited for this new chapter.  I hope you will enjoy everything that is to come, and I appreciate all of your loyal support.  So, let’s christen this site together and celebrate turning over a new page.
