Muliple sources have reported to Daytime Confidential that One Life to Live’s talented newbie Amanda Setton (Kim) has indeed taped her last episode of  One Life to Live as of this past Friday, Feb. 19.  Reportedly, the actress who has been on recurring status, was offered a contract and a pay increase, however she opted to turn both down and in planning to move to California for pilot season.

On-Air On-Soaps was at the set of One Life to Live on Friday and did quickly spot Setton with a bouquet of flowers in her hand, that appeared to being presented by her to one of her co-workers.

In addition, OLTL star Tuc Watkins (David) and the series head writer, Ron Carlivati did tease to On-Air On-Soaps potential upcoming story for Kim and David.  So, will there be a recast? Was it extremely sudden? Stay tuned.

And, if you watched One Life’s fantastic Friday cliffhanger, Setton’s performance where Kim left her very expensive boots and walked away of the icy lake where  Stacy had drowned, was simply stunning.   Not only for Kim’s emotional heartbreak, but for the fact that later the boots had disappeared and there were foot prints in the snow!  Hmmm…

I am sooo unhappy to hear this!! This girl ROCKS!!! She is sexy, hot, lovable, and a bit whicked all rolled into one!!! Kim is more like old-school TINA LORD then Flash was!

This girl has a presence that is undeniable! She has a spunk about her that is likeable even when she is behaving badly. This is a trait that is not always found by all actresses. I think Alexa H had it when she played Babe– but it was lacking by her recast. So if they recast– which I think they should– it needs to be by an actress who can pull that off!!!!!!!!!!!

I was also surpirsed to learn that Amanda is only 25 years old– she has a mature look about her. Those that are saying dont recast and give more time to Renee and Nigel are kinda in fantasy land. I say that cause these shows are all trying to give older vets less screen time and fill the air time with younger cast members. So if they dont recast Kim- they will only bring on a newer character who is in her 20’s who gets the screen time.

I have a few ideas of possible recasts:
I think Erin Hershey would work in this role- if she dyed her hair. Erin looks younger then her actual age. And she has the ability to be likeable even when she is bad!

And finally – I think one nice thing about OLTL being one of the only shows filmed in NYC is they have a chance to draw some big Broadway stars to the show. I think EDEN ESPINOSA of Brooklyn, RENT and WIcked could fit the role well also.

It’s too bad that this role is for someone in their late 20’s — cause I’m sure ABC would love to find a way to have Alicia M join OLTL in some way– and she could work in this role too. BUT she is about 7 years too old! 🙁 too bad!!! I would have rather seen her join the cast as Kim then have Kendall come to town!

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”
