Monday is the day that The Talk premieres on CBS Daytime in the timeslot long designated to As the World Turns. We are sure for long time fans who miss the residents of Oakdale and are still grieving, it will be like ripping open a fresh wound.

Needless to say, in the last few days the hosts of the new mommie gabfest, Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Leah Ramini, Holly Robinson Peete, Marrisa Jaret Winokur and Sharon Osbourne have been making the PR rounds.  Today they appeared on CBS’s The Early Show to peddle the show.

Watch the new video promo for the series after the jump.  After seeing this, and if you are mom, does this hold any interest for you?  Let us know.

I have never watched the show that replaced Guiding LIght, and I will never watch the show that replaces As The World Turns. I’m bitter about losing my stories.

This could make for an interesting show, but not in the 2 p.m. slot and would perhaps be best served on a cable channel like TLC or Lifetime… definitely not in the time slot where my As the World Turns should be.

No, I won’t watch. Please join us in boycotting The Talk & BBOS (Bring Back Our Soap) by writing to CBS. Here’s the form letter http://worldturns.webs.com/Moonves%20form%20letter.pdf

Just click, sign and send. It’s that easy.

I won’t be watching this show either. If ATWT were still on, and this came on afterwards, I might have…but since it canceled the only soap I watched, not a chance!

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

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.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. 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”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
