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.

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
