More cast cutting from the soaps today.  ABC Daytime has confirmed to Soap Opera Digest that Brittany Underwood (Langston) has been let-go by the series and the decision was storyline-dictated. Langston is now set for an exit this spring.

Underwood first appeared on the canvas as a wayward teenager who Dorian took under her wing and eventually adopted.  So where does this leave Ford and an on-screen romantic interest for his portrayer, David Gregory ?  Stay tuned!

Although i love OLTL, I am always surprised by who they let go!

My opinion, not a good move. It sounds like the writers are doing it in reverse. We wanted the Fords gone, not all of Starr’s best friends.

Langston was playing an awesome role w/ Markko. Along w/ her friends Starr and Cole.They had a good inner circle.. But when they brought the Fords in, that ruined the whole show. And because of these ignorant writers. Gives me no regret for the fact that all the ABC Soaps were taken off the air.

perhaps if enough of us post comments, ABC will change their minds. I hope we find out more as to why she is being let go.

come on! I think it is horrible that OLTL is letting Brittany go. I’m so over this soap.

I think this is the best idea because I have never cared for Langston. I don’t mind the Ford brothers and I think I will like Ford even more if he is paired with someone else. The Langston pairing seemed forced and she should have been with Markko still. When she was with Markka I could tolerate her a little.

I just started watching this show and the best character is Langston.

Why? This is not fair. Langston needs to stay.

If Brittany Underwoods exit is storyline-dictated and the Ford brothers are sticking around. My guess is Langton killed Eddie.

Langston should not be leaving to prop the Ford brothers and in no way should she have killed Eddie. What a disgrace these writers would be. She is a wonderful character all on her own and Brittany has portrayed her beautifully over the years. I cannot stand by this terrible decision to fire the talented, young actress. Langston should be sticking around.

I really can’t believe they are letting Brittany go. What in the world are they thinking??? What about getting rid of the new girl Aubrey… she’s a pointless character or Marty who hasn’t been that great of a character since after she came back from the dead. Then Susan Haskell could take on for The ABC team and move to California so Thorsten could fo back to All My Children. OR even Echo??? Rex already has a mom who is much more intresting by the name of Roxy. They could even het rid of Inez, make her really respnsible for… Read more »

ABC and OLTL you are making a big mistake. The best idea is to get rid of Susan Haskell so Thorsten can go back to AMC………………..

I don’t understand why they would do this. She’s very talented and I’ve come to think of her as a real Kramer. I’ve always kind of preferred her to Starr. She’s been a lot spunkier. Will be sad to see her go.

I agree. Langston was such an interesting character and she should have been around for a long time. I am beyond sad to see her go.

The whole “Ford brothers” thing started with Langston. They wrote her horribly to facilitate this relationship with Ford and demolished her beautiful story with Markko. Then they decide not to even write for Ford/Langston. For the past few months, they’ve gotten nothing. So now Langston is the one to go, and not Ford? Why? Because he has abs? This news has been hard to take ever since I heard it. She was an amazing female character that could be looked up to & Brittany rocked the role. OLTL is on my hate list.

Agreed. I loved the character of Langston when she was with Markko. She was a spunky, interesting nonconformist. I HATE all three of the Ford brothers, and since Langston’s forced pairing with Ford, she’s turned into just another dull, horny nondescript teen character. As the writers have ruined the character, I’m now not that sorry to see her go.

I actually like all of the Fords….except Nate. Inez is a recurring character, but her arc seems to be over. I do not agree that being with Ford ruined Langston. I believed her motivation for wanting to explore outside of her safe first love. It happens all of the time. She is not the first to move on to a hotter guy. Poor writing has ruined her character. Ford should not have been so easily redeemed. That is why we have James….the anti-Ford Ford brother. I am sorry for the actress, but her character is completely not necessary to the… Read more »

Of course I want Langston to stay and get the character investment she deserves as opposed to newbies I could care less about. The character is 19, hardly an age of limited storytelling possibilities. She has connections and a past to work with. As a female, I tend to invest in female characters but I’m realizing that is the wrong way to go with these soaps.

Keep Brittany on the show! Langston is a great young character and I’ve absolutely been a fan since she first came on. This is just awful. Man do I wish they would undo this.

From the start, I felt like they were tossing both Langston & Markko to showcase Ford. Markko was gone, and Langston was used to prop until they could move on with plans. That has made me tune out.

That is exactly what they did, much to my sadness. It was uncalled for.

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Shares Excerpt From Her Upcoming Memoir

In celebration of beginning her 27th year as Alexis Davis on General Hospital, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, decided to mark the occasion by revealing to her longtime fans an excerpt from her upcoming memoir due out in 2023.

Taking to her official Facebook page, Nancy shared the excerpt starting with contained some of the back-history of her soap opera alter-ego : “I play the role of Alexis Davis. I am a public defender, prosecutor, personnel injury, civil, malpractice, tax and family attorney. I am the bastard child of Mikos Cassadine who died after being thrown into his own weather machine which he designed to freeze the world. My mother, Kristen Bergman was a famous opera singer whose throat was slit by my father’s wife, Helena. Unhappy with the turn of events, I hurled my frail 75 year old stepmother off a five hundred foot parapet slamming her onto jagged rock only for her to walk away unscathed. Even more determined, I shoved her off a thousand foot cliff into the frigid subzero ocean, Helena not only survived unscathed, she apparently scaled 1000 feet up the cliff and continued to wreak havoc on Port Charles.”

Nancy closed the excerpt with some special acknowledgements: “Always so grateful to have an ongoing contract, my own parking space and people I’ve never met who come up to me regularly and tell me how much younger I look in person. It’s a gift that I have been able to and still get to do what I love to do for such a gloriously long time. I love my job the most because it is the job that gave me the security I needed to greenlight Kate as a single mother, raise her while being able to give her the things I dreamed of giving her, put her through school all the way through college, and will hopefully allow me to spoil my grandchildren. The enormous love & gratitude I have for ABC and Disney for allowing me the privilege of working for them is immeasurable. But the real truth is without the support from all of you, this day would not be what it is. As always, I see you and thank you”

Make sure to read the entire excerpt.  Noe let us know, are you looking forward to what Nancy will share in her upcoming memoir? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.
