Claire Malis Callaway, Ex-Dorian One Life to Live, Has Passed Away!

Before there was Robin Strasser as Dorian Cramer Lord, there was Claire Malis, and before that Nancy Pinkerton played the delicious soap role on One Life to Live.   Sadly, actress Claire Malis Callaway has passed away.   She was 69.

Callaway died a few weeks ago on August 24 of congestive heart failure and pneumonia at City of Hope Helford Clinical Research Hospital in Duarte, California.  She had undergone a stem cell transplant in 2010 in a battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Claire was also know for her role as Rose Polniaczek, the divorced mother of Nancy McKeon’s character, on The Facts Of Life.   Malis was on  OLTL as Dorian from February 1977 to April 1979.

Survivors include her husband Thomas Callaway, their son Catlin, and her brother Lee.  On-Air On-Soaps remembers Claire’s wonderful portrayal of Dorian, and sends our thoughts and prayers to her family.

RIP Dorian Lord # 2! Can someone post a clip of her as Dorian? I don’t remember ever seeing one.

Here’s a brief clip of her. And it truly is brief. She only appears in the first scene and that’s it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ-TgiV584w&feature=plcp

They really are dropping like flies from OLTL. Was something in the water? How did ES survive it?

Oh my goodness, we lost another wonderful actress who played Dr. Dorian Cramer. First Nancy Pinkerton and then Dixie Carter. I recall Claire Malis as Dorian. Very different than Nancy Pinkerton. I always remember her as much more relaxed and casual. Wish there were clips of her in the role. Condolences to her family.

She was one of the reasons I became so engrossed in OLTL when I was in 4th grade–loved her as Dorian and it took years and years for me to appreciate Robin S. Very sad news.

Blessings on Ms. Malis’s family. My mother had lymphoma and was a big fam of ONE LIFE TO LIVE. For years! Me too! I recall Nancy Pinkerton and Claire Malis as Dorian and they were awesome. Thank you, Michael, for keeping us informed of those we remember so well. In a culture where we often forget the past, it is important to honr those who shared their talents and provided us entertainment and top storytelling. We often wonder what happens to these fine actors.

I fondly remember Claire from high school in Gary, Indiana. We both attended Lew Wallace High School . She was one year ahead of me in school. We both were in the schools drama class for 3 years. She was a great classmate and friend. She had acting in her blood.

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
