Ugh! This will not sit well with soap fans. The Los Angeles Times this afternoon had a piece on the update on the Prospect Park deal and their statement released yesterday which addressed where the company was at in terms of moving One Life to Live and All My Children online.  PP stated,  “We are in the process of working out the essential terms of our proposed collective bargaining agreements with the appropriate guilds and unions.”

However in this L.A. Times piece they reported this bit of hard to swallow news for Llanview fans! “Besides trying to sign up the cast and crew — likely for less money — Prospect Park probably would also have to find new homes to shoot the soaps. ABC is planning on using the New York set of One Life to Live for its Katie Couric talk show launching next year.”

Now remember, Couric’s talker does not launch till September 2012, but still!

So then where on the planet earth will One Life to Live will be produced out of  when it continues online?  Will they put them in a smaller facility in New York City more in-line with moving the show to the web? How would OLTL have the same look and feel as previously announced? Would they start at their current studios and then be shipped out once Katie takes over the place?   So many questions!

I think the viewers are going to get the last laugh anyway, Katie Couric couldnt pay for viewers when she was on every evening on CBS. I dont foresee anyone wanting to see her every afternoon. ABC just dumped 2.6 million OLTL viewers on someone who noone cares about anymore.

Fine, let Katie film in the same building, but remove ALL of OLTL’s beautiful set design and props to another location. What would Katie want with them anyway? Surely, she will want a new and different set design for her show. If OLTL is to continue on the internet, maintaining the interior design of the homes of Llanview’s prominent citizens would be helpful.

Chrishell Stause Has Taken Steps Towards Motherhood

Former soap opera star, Chrishell Stause, who is current appearing on the reality series Selling Sunset and the the new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, shared some personal news with PEOPLE that she hopes to start a family

In the exclusive, Stause shares, “I have taken the steps to freeze my eggs.”  Adding,  “I definitely had a different idea for where I would be at this age and stage in my life.  There’s a family aspect that I’m missing that I hope is still a possibility for me.”

Of course, Stause is still pretty fresh off her shocking marriage break-up in November of 2019 with This is Us star, Justin Hartley.  But because of that she wants to take the pressure off of herself and a potential life partner in terms of a time-frame to bring kids into the world.

Meanwhile, Stause continues to prepare each week for ballroom dance competition on Dancing with the Stars with pro partner, Gleb Savchenko

She admitted that she was actually getting ready to freeze her eggs when she joined the cast for season 29 of DWTS.  “I was in the middle of the process when DWTS approached me. So for the first weeks of rehearsal, I was giving myself daily hormone shots while learning the tango, and the procedure was done a few days before the premiere of the show.”

So, what do you think about Chrishell’s plans to become a mom when she is ready?  Are you rooting her on Dancing with the Stars? Comment below.

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.
