“Mr. PEC-Tacular’s” appearance helped give Big Brother their largest Adult 18-34 rating in nearly three years…and the episode also attracted Big Brother’s largest audience on any night since September of ’09.

Bodderz was also featured for months on the CBS.com home page to increase web traffic exponentially. Bodderz also just landed a development deal with TNA Wrestling.    Maybe, Austin Peck could play his evil PEC-tacular Wrestling Manager in a storyline!

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.
