Carmen LoPorto given the ax by One Life to Live!

As many viewers saw during One Life to Live’s bravura Christmas episode last week,  there was a slightly older Sam in the Manning household, when the show recast the youngster with Patrick Gibbons Jr.  However, now comes word that Jack Manning played for over three and half years by actor, Carmen LoPorto, has been let-go to make way, we presume, for a SORAS’d Jack to mix it up with this dysfunctional family.

LoPorto made the announcement on his Facebook page stating: “I got a call this week that they SORAS’ed Jack and I am no longer a member of the Manning Family. It’s been fun and an experience that I will never forget.  Thank You All Again. Here’s to bigger and better things to come in 2011.”

There has been no official announcement made by the series as of yet, as to who will take over the eldest son of Todd Manning.  On-Air On-Soaps wishes Carmen well in all his next endeavors, as he did a great job as the chip-off-the-old block  young son of  Trevor St. John (Todd Manning).

This is a horrible decision! Carmen had more talent in his little finger
than some other ones I could mention. He played Todd’s son
perfectly! In fact, they should have used him more! I hate when they
do the aging kids syndrome. I love it when they can grow with the
show like Kristen, Eddie, and Kimberly McCollough. There’s not need
to age them when they have a perfectly wonderful actor in the role! As
I said, this is a horrible decision. Carmen played the perfect Jack and
he should not have been given the ax.

I was in shock when I read that One Life to Live made the decision to let Carmen go. Epic, epic, epic mistake. This young actor was such a find—a talented scene stealer who has been the PERFECT miniature Todd Manning—I thought for sure that they knew what they had in him and that he was a shoe-in to be one of those rare kids on soaps who got to ‘age naturally’ and who would be on the canvas for many years to come, along the lines of Kristen Alderson. They’re not going to find a fit that good again,… Read more »

Really gonna miss the old Jack, played by Carmen…look forward to seeing more of the new Sam. Talk about a scene stealer…He stole the show on the Christmas episode…and bravo to the writers of that episode…So cleverly written!

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
