Former One Life to Live Star Brandon Buddy Arrested For DWI!

Another young actor has been arrested for a DWI and this time it’s former One Life to Live star Brandon Buddy, who has had some previous trouble with the law.

The actor who played Cole Thornhart opposite Kristen Alderson’s Starr Manning on ABC’s One Life to Live from 2006-2010 apparently was busted on Sunday in his home state of Texas, when cops were alerted!

Apparently an  intoxicated Buddy — covered in scratches – was seen taking off in his car after grabbing beer at an Austin gas station. This is according to a report from TMZ, and the mug shot provided by the entertainment news outlet accompanying the story.

After being stopped, an allegedly semi-conscious Buddy was evaluated at a nearby hospital and arrested.  But in addition the report goes on to say,  “Brandon is being investigated for possessing dangerous drugs,” because the police found prescription drugs in his car on January 4th of this year as well.  In the past, Buddy reportedly had some other issues with substance abuse during his time at One Life.

This is not a story we like to report, since Buddy did such an admirable job in the role of the troubled Cole of Llanview.

This makes me sad. Loved Brandon on OLTL he showed a lot of promise. I know others are going to judge but I will not. I’ve never been in his shoes and don’t know what he’s been through. I just hope he gets help and finds peace.

Well said, Ron. This is a very sad story. Hope for the best for his future and he gets the help he needs. Glad no one else was hurt in this incident.

He may have done a great job as Cole but he sure is making a mess of his real life…ive been under a lot of stress and being treated for severe anxiety but i dont drink nor i dont use drugs…whatever his reason there is no excuse for it…we all know drugs and alchol can lead to bad things-some tragic…its happen in my family…why so many do not wake up…why do they think the worse wont happen to them or do they want it to…i hope he gets the treatments and punishment he deserves…maybe the latter will be his wake… Read more »

I, also, jimh. I went through so much in my life….my baby died a few years ago…..never was I tempted to go down that road of destruction. However, not all of us are that strong mentally.
Brandon is still young enough to help himself. There is always hope.
I won’t say, “Will they never learn?” because it would be too insensitive….I will say, “when will it stop?” Very, very sad, indeed.

CeeCee, i really dont know what to say but i do share your pain…i had to bury my baby nephew 15 years ago whom i named Jesse James(Jesse for my late mothers aunt not the outlaw) and wouldve raised him had he lived…it was very hard to do…if i could write my life story it would suprise many that i never turned to drugs and alcohol!!!

Aw JimH, So sorry for you loss! It’s not quite the same, but my 17 year old handsome, popular, talented nephew committed suicide last year. We thought he was happy. From the outside looking in we thought he was content. Also tragically my 19 year old brother from drinking and driving.I’ve never drank & drove as a result, but have needed medication a few times over some tragedies and it is very addictive. I am a lucky one, I dug my way out before I got the the point of no return. It’s very hard, but it an be done.… Read more »

And, here comes the shaming and judging.

My opinion like it or not…he is a grown man who knows what he is doing…everyone makes mistakes including myself(stupid mistakes not lawbreaking which is a big difference)…mistakes are something one does by accident…he made his choice to use drugs and alcohol which is dumb move but his CHOICE…he got caught and now must pay for breaking the law…enough said!!!

I take your point, Mitchell1660—but sometimes what you are terming “shaming” and “judging” is appropriate. I could equally term it “holding him accountable.” As jimh noted, he made choices—some very bad ones. They could have gotten somebody killed. The part of his sad story that has to do with substance abuse purely, I have tremendous compassion for. I cannot imagine what that is like, and I wouldn’t presume to judge anybody’s breaking point, or the combination of factors that might result in someone’s ending up with a serious abuse problem, which it sounds as though BB clearly has. But I… Read more »

Simply stated, we are all human and we all do stupid things. Let’s get out of the judgment seat and just send out some positive energy to this young man. He is gonna need all the help and positivity he can find right now. When all this stuff gets made public it causes an even worse pain. I am grateful that all my many mistakes have been fairly private. I can’t imagine the world knowing my stupid mistakes. Brandon Buddy, I send you good thoughts for the mountain you are going to have to climb. It won’t be easy, nor… Read more »

Mateo,

Nice post. I agree. I feel I’m a great person w/great friends and husband, but I’ve done idiotic things in my life-many times. I can’t even imagine if it was broadcast for the world to see & hear. I pray this young man gets the help he needs and comes back strong.

I tend toward compassion too—I’ve done my share of dumb things, though not this particular one—but let’s also remember he could have killed someone. He got lucky this time. We’re not talking about one of those situations where his blood alcohol was .09 or something (I choose that number because it’s “legally drunk” in some states but not in others—and that drives me crazy) and there could be debate on whether he was drunk enough that he couldn’t be driving. He’s described as “semi-conscious.” There was no question that he was a danger to himself and others. I hope the… Read more »

Sad, he had promise as an actor, but there is never an excuse to get drunk and drive.

I am so sorry to hear this. From what I saw of him on OLTL, he has real potential for a strong career. I hope he will learn from this and make better life choices before destroying his life and the lives of others.

Obviously he has a problem and I truly hope he receives the help he needs. Life can be EXTREMELY difficult and if you don’t have someone who cares and will kick you in the ass when needed, it can be a lonely and traumatic time – I’ve been there. God bless him.

He is a gifted young actor. I pray that he learns from this huge mistake, and am grateful no one was hurt. I hope to see him back on the tv or movie screens soon.

whenever you hear of an OLTL actor in trouble, you kind of wish viki would walk in and set them straight.

Let’s remember the great role he played Patrick and Marty’s son! I mean any Llanviewers out there remember” “MARTRICK”. ? I mean Patrick the Irish poet and Marty Saybrook the rape survivor ? That was soap at its best! It broaght two great actors together, an EMMY award for her – and one of the great television stories.

I realize now I am just missing the golden days of OLTL and not even thinking of that poor little Actor. Good luck to you mr Brandon! You were lucky. Please learn.

I loved Patrick and Marty. Susan Haskell and Thorsten Kaye were terrific together. I so wish Susan was working again.

Weren’t Susan and Thorsten together in real life too, or did I imagine that? (And are they still?)

Susan is such a unique talent and I am in agreement with you that she should be working too!

Still miss OLTL three years later!

‘Filthy Rich’ Canceled by Fox After One Season

The soapy Filthy Rich has been short-lived.  News tonight has that the series featuring Sex and the City favorite, Kim Cattrall and former Guiding Light star, Aubrey Dollar (Ex-Marina) has been canceled by Fox in its first season.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
