Today, Kassie DePaiva’s Blair Cramer landed in Port Charles as more of the One Life to Live crossovers begin on General Hospital!  ET Online caught up with DePaiva, and her on-screen daughter Kristen Alderson (Starr) and their new co-star Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard (Sonny) to get their thoughts on attempting to reinvigorate the soap with the mix of beloved characters from both shows.

Kassie stressed in the video interview that the Manning’s relocation is “a gift to the fans of One Life to Live.”  She added, “Not each fan watches both shows, so this way we can bring some of our OLTL fans over to GH. I just hope that the network does not turn its back on daytime. ABC has always been such a great brand,” wept a heartbroken Kassie.  Maurice Benard threatened, “I dare anybody to cancel this show.”

Kristen’s talked about her heart-wrenching debut earlier this week. “The first episode I lose my boyfriend, Cole and my daughter.  They go over a cliff.  That was my first day at GH.  Our executive producer, he came up to me and he said, ‘Hey Kristen, there’s going to be a lot of crying, a lot of drama, and a lot of scenes for you to be doing all that.’ I said, ‘That’s what I signed up for.'”  Starr will likely be taking time to mourn the loss before walking down the aisle in an epic soap opera wedding with a new love interest. But, Kristen has already found a potential McDreamy on this hospital set, blushing that Chad Duell, “has been extremely awesome to work with.”

Below watch the trio discuss the state of the soaps, their characters and working with each other in PC or click here to view the clip at ETOnline!

Finally saw the interview with Kassie and Kristen trully awesome. They seem to be having a great time but I still wish OLTL could come back. I agree with Maurice Benard all soaps should mix in together here and there, it is more interesting to see people from different soaps interacting with one another.

Kassie stressed in the video interview that the Manning’s relocation is “a gift to the fans of One Life to Live.” Kassie deserves the Emmy for this performance.

Maurice Benard threatened, “I dare anybody to cancel this show.” Was Maurice in character or does he think he is Sonny? No wonder he is nominated year after year.

Did you also see how Kristen jumped and smoothed it over? Can you imagine how Kassie feels? Her emotions must be all the place. Show cancelled then her role was given another chance, but for how long?

From Maurice/Sony’s lips to God’s ears!

I love the idea that we get to have a little piece of landview in port charles.I have watched all the abc soaps for close to 49 years so as a long time viewer of all the soaps this is a great move, new families move to the soaps all the time if the mannings are that strong ,they will stay.I love starr todd and blair and I cant wait to see john mcbain,over the years all my children,one life to live and general hospital ,had crossovers ,and it was always with interesting stories,a baby went from all my children to one life to live back to all my children,dont get confused we are soap watches so we can deal with all the twists and turns.so this general hospital fan is very happy my family from one life to live continues to have another story.and hopefully more stories to come . starr ,blair ,todd,and john mcbain ,welcome to port charles .

We are on the same wavelength! Actually, I am excited about GH. For so long, the storylines dragged on, and many plots were repetitive. The OLTL stars will spark new energies, and with all the fan favs returning, THINGS can only go up, especially the ratings.

general hospital,has put me to sleep so many times,I could walk away from the tv ,dont come back for a while and it was always the same stories ,it was sonny,jason,and carly and all the other characters were only on if those 3 were involved ,the other stories with steve and maggie ,snooze fest, same with cassandra,what a bore.these past 2 weeks have been so nice ,alot of drama ,theres no way Im leaving the room and Im definitely not falling asleep.I knew the ratings would go up hopefully they will go up even higher.dont get me wrong I dont want sonny,jason and carly to drop off the face of the soap world ,the mob stories have to be shortened and the rest of the families in port charles need attention ,and there is plenty of room for my favorite first family the mannings and john mcbain .bring a few more people over ,vicki ,clint, bo nora,tia ,victor roxy for all the newbes that were kicked out the door there is room for a few more landview people,it wont hurt it will only get better,the more fans that follow one life to live to general hospital the better for the only surviving soap on abc/disney.

Last night I switched off my vcr for a taping investment of Gh I was planning to do.
I have to say this, I was ALL excited but NO COLE, NO GO.

I understand when Jenny was blown up on AMC, I stopped watching for several weeks. When my favorite stars were killed off on OLTL, I stopped watching again. But please reconsider, this is the second Cole, and as you know, if no body is recovered and you don’t see the body, then he and Faith are alive. And we need everyone to watch to keep the ONLY remaining ABC soap on the air. Down the road (2 years) when Star is happy with Michael or whomever, Cole will return, and I hope the EP brings back your favorite Cole.

Dan

Both actors that have played Cole aren’t available, so you can’t blame GH for that. What else are they supposed to do?

Christy
Christy

Do you really think that Hope & Cole are laying at the bottom of the cliff in perfect shape? I think they were killed off-screen to save money. The new Cole actor had other commitments, and I’m sure the gal who played Hope is NY based… they’ll have to both be recast… again.

Maurice Benard threatened, “I dare anybody to cancel this show.”

Sonny has threantened so many people on GH over the year’s that it has caught a fire with Maurice Benard, LOL. He’s going to get the mob after them if they cancel his show….. lol

( I just had to post that for all of you who don’t like all the mob (ness) over of the year’s, I thought U’d get a kick out of it ) .

Cause I love me some Mauric (Sonny) Benard, validity to everyone’s accusations about mob stories OR not….

Christy

I have to say that I actually liked Chad Duell’s acting better when he was in scenes with Star. I hadn’t much liked him before, so I kinda wondered if Michael & Star would hook up down the road… poor Todd would have another son-in-law relations kinda like he had with Marty… they weren’t exactly best buddies and then to have their offspring hook up, it was just uncomfortable.
