BREAKING NEWS: OLTL's Valentini and Carlivati ink new deals with the ABC soap!

Courtesy/ABC

When we reported earlier over the weekend an item from the Denver Post that stated ABC was to announce it will be keeping One Life to Live around for another two years, looks like that was true!  Today it was revealed exclusively through TVGuide.com that both the shows executive producer, Frank Valentini and the shows head writer, Ron Carlivati of have both signed new deals with One Life.

Valentini who is celebrating his 25th anniversary with the show this week, got a new two-year deal and Carlivati a three-year deal.   So with this fact in place, it would appear One Life to Live is not going anywhere anytime soon.

Great! I have a better idea! Why not rehire all the quality actors that were thrown under the bus this past Spring and unceremoniously dumped by OLTL, and fire these two idiots instead! It’s pretty obvious by now that Kyle, Oliver, Schuyler, Rachel, Stacy, Kim, Roxy, et. al. were NOT the problem with this show and its bad ratings. They were likely going to be the “solution” to solving some of the problems had they not been “thown under the bus” for a bunch of no-talent, bare-torsoed teenyboppers!

When you have 85-90% of the viewership wanting a Kish return, and want more of Roxy on the show, and your show is in the pitiful condition that OLTL is currently in, you would think these idiots would “do the right thing” and give the viewers what they want! OLTL lost over 300,000+ viewers when Kish left that they have NOT been able to get back! When is Frank going to admit he made the MONUMENTAL mistake of the century letting Kish go and do everything in his power to get them back again! Is he really that stubborn, or just plain STUPID? Kish was a gold mine. And not only did they bring in a new fan base, but they also brought in international viewers which OLTL has NEVER had before. Hey “sponsors”, those international fans buy American products the same as Americans do. Wake up!

And, what did Frank and Ron give us in return for all those talented individuials that were “dumped”? GIGI. FF (Gigi) should have been fired over a year ago. The only thing she has done for the show is drive away even more viewers than the show has already lost due to their own bad decisions. This actress (Gigi) does NOT belong on OLTL. She simply does not fit in and is a totally useless character with no talent who just sucks up airtime! JMHO!

I HOPE ONE LIFE TO LIVE STICKS AROUND FOR TWO ORE 3 YEARS. I’M SICK OF SEEING MY FAVORITE ACTORS AND ACTRESSES BEING FIRED. ALTHOUGH I CAN CARELIESS ABOUT FORBES MARCH. I THINK FIRING JUSTIS BOLDING BEING FIRED SUCKS. I LOVED HER AND STILL DO. I DON’T UNDERSTAND ABOUT BRAIN KERWIN AND SUSAN HASKELL LEAVING. I HOPE THAT JERRY VER DORN DOESN’T GET FIRED. I DON’T CARE IF MARK LAWSON, MICHALE ESTON AND MELISSA ARCHER BEING FIRED. ONE LIFE TO LIVE IS BETTER OFF WITH OUT THEM. BRING BACK JASON SHANE SCOTT AS WILL SO JESSICA CAN REUNITE WITH HIM. CATHERINE HICKLAND SHOULD RETURN. SAME WITH JOHN BOLGER. AND CHARISSA CHAMAROO AND DAN GAUTHIER. KEVIN NEEDS TO RETURN. I’M ANNOYED WITH SOME SPOILERS. LIKE JESSICA ALWAYS HAVE TO SPILT. ALWAYS PUTTING CHARLIE BEING DRUNK. GIVING CLINT A DARK SIDE. I ALWAYS LOVE CLINT AS A GOOD GUY. I THINK YOU SHOULD BRING BACK ROBIN CHRISTOPHER BACK AS SKYE SHE CAN SHAKE THINGS UP LIKE SHE DID WHEN SHE TOLD VIKI THAT SHE WAS BEN’S WIFE. I WOULD LOVE FOR MARK DREWIN TO COME BACK. I DON’T HIM BEING GONE. I LOVED LINDSEY AND NORA’S FEUD. IT MAKES ME WANT TO LAUGH. I REALLY MISS KALE BROWNE AND JESSICA MORRIS. SAME WITH SAMUEL BALL AS DREW. I WONDER WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF DREW WAS NEVER KILLED AND STILL ON ONE LIFE TO LIVE. I THINK ONE LIFE TO LIVE SHOULD HAVE A JAIL BREAK FOR LINDSEY AND TROY. THAT WOULD BE INTRESTING. BRING BACK JAMES DEPAIVA AS MAX. I THINK MAX AND BLAIR ARE MENT FOR EACH OTHER. I REALLY DO MISS SUSAN BATTEN AS LUNA AND NATHANIEL MARTSON AS AL HOLDEN. I WAS A HUGE FAN OF THEM SAME WITH CHRIS STACK MICHALE AND KATHY BIARE AS MARCIE. I WISH THEY WERE BACK. I MISS RACHEL AND HANK. I LOVE WATCHING THEM THEY ARE THE REASON WHY I WATCH ONE LIFE TO LIVE. NATALIE IS NOT THE BEST. SHE IS SO MEAN. SHE IS A LIFE RUINER WOMAN. SHE RUINED JESSICA,MARTY, JEN, EVAGELINE, MARTY AND KELLY’S LIVES. NATALIE HAS TO GO SAME WITH BRODY AND JOHN MC’BAIN. BRING BACK JOHN BOLGER. HE IS THE BEST JOHN THERE IS ON ONE LIFE TO LIVE. I WANT TO SAY THAT I LOVE ROBERT S. WOODS AND HILLARY B. SMITH. I’M SO HAPPY THAT JOEY IS BACK ON ONE LIFE TO LIVE. I ALWAYS HAVE BEEN A HUGE FAN OF HIM. SAME WITH KEVIN. WHERE IS KEVIN BY THE WAY. BRING BACK THAT TIGER. I ALSO MISS JARED TOO. WHAT A STUD.

I HAVE A GREAT IDEA HOW TO MAKE ONE LIFE TO LIVE ONE HUNDERD MORE EXCTING LIKE IT IS ALREADY. SOMEONE’S GHOST COMES BACK FOR A VISIT OR TO TAUNT. THAT WOULD BE FUN TO WATCH. LIKE GEORGIE PHILIPS. TAUNTING NORA. NORA HAVING PARANOIA. SEEING GEORGE OR COLIN’S GHOST. MAYBE DORIAN SHOULD HAVE PARANOIA. SHE CAN’T STOP SEEING MEL EVERY WHERE SHE GOES. I HAVE A STEAMING IDEA FOR NATALIE. WHAT IF SHE GOES BACK INTO TIME OF 2001. AND WATCHES HERSELF HOW SHE ACTED AND TREATED PEOPLE AND MAYBE TEACHES HER SOMETHING NOW TO BE NICER TO PEOPLE AND MAYBE SHE CAN MORE FRIENDS. AND FOR JESSICA SHE SHOULD GO BACK INTO TIME OF 1999 AND 2000 AND WATCHES HERSELF BEING IN LOVE WITH WILL. THAN SHE WILL REALIZE THAT BRODY NOT FOR HER AND WILL IS. I THINK DREW SHOULD POP UP AND VISIT WITH JOEY AND TELL HIM TO GIVE KELLY ANOTHER CHANCE. VIKI SHOULD TAKE A NAP A DREAM OF BEN WHEN SHE WITH HIM BACK IN THE DAYS. REX ALSO SHOULD GO BACK INTO TIME WHEN HE WAS IN LOVE WITH ADRIANNA. HE WILL REALIZE HE MADE A MISTAKE AND DUMP GIGI FOR ADRIANNA. WHAT TO BRING BACK ROSEANNE. TEA DESERVE TO HAVE ALL OF HER FAMILY TOGETHER. I HAVE A STORY LINE FOR CARLOTTA. CARLOTTA MAYBE GET BACK WITH HANK AND GET MARRIED. I THINK CLINT SHOULD GET KNOCKED OUT AND GO BACK TO DAYS WHEN HE USE TO BE A GOOD GUY AND REALIZES HE WANTS TO BE GOOD AGAIN. BRING BACK OLIVER AND KYLE. TWO MORE HOTTIES. HUGH VISITS KELLY AND GIVES HER ADVICE ABOUT JOEY AND AUBERY. ROXY SHOULD HAVE A GAMBLING PROBLEM. THAT WOULD GREAT TO SEE. NIGEL AND ROXY SHOULD REUNITE AS LOVERS AGAIN THAT WOULD INTRESTING TO SEE. I THINK THAT TODD SHOULD GET ANOTHER PARROT TO REPLACE MOOSE. I NEVER FORGET HIS PARROT FROM 1995 TO 1999. WHAT IF NATALIE GETS INTO A HIT AND RUN LOSES HER MEOMERIES OF JOHN AND REMEMBERS SETH INSTEAD. WHAT IF MATTHEW AND NATE TRADE BODIES MATTHEW BEING NATE AND NATE BEING MATTHEW. WHAT ABOUT ANOTHER TAKE OVER. OVER AT THE BANNER. ECHO WILL TO TAKE OVER THE BANNER. THAT WOULD BE WAR WITH VIKI AND CLINT. WHAT ABOUT TO BRING BACK CORD AND TINA. ANOTHER LOVE TRINGEL. REX,GIGI AND ADRIANNA. THAT WOULD BE FUN. DORIAN SHOULD HAVE ANOTHER FEUD BUT WITH TINA. THAT WOULD INTRESTING TO WATCH. JESSICA SHOULD A FEUD WITH ECHO. TRYING TO MAKE ECHO TO STAY AWAY FROM CHARLIE. THAT WOULD BE SO COOL. I THINK THAT JESSICA AND DORIAN AND DAVID SHOULD HAVE STORYLINE TOGETHER. JESSICA, DAVID AND DORIAN GETS DRUGGED GETS IN DEEP SLEEP AND DREAM ABOUT THEIR LOVE LIVES. I HAVE ANOTHER FUN ONE FOR NATALIE. SHE SHOULD HAVE PARANOIA. SEEING RED EVERY WHERE AND SEE’S A GHOST OF PAUL CRAMER. HERE ONE FOR BO. BO SHOULD GO ON A SEARCH FOR A NEW CROSS ROAD BAR AND RECREATE IT BACK WHEN BEN WAS… Read more »
