Those of you who missed and loved Oliver Fish on One Life to Live, and the work of Scott Evans, were concerned over recent developments where Evans last year was arrested for possession of a controlled substance after he tried to buy some off an undercover cop in Los Angeles!

However there is good news today from TMZ.com that the case against Evans has been dropped mainly because of Evans good behavior and attending 60 Narcotics Anonymous meetings.  According to the report, “Evans had struck a plea deal with prosecutors back in January in which he agreed to plead guilty — and in exchange he would have to complete 60 NA meetings.  Well, Evans came through — and earlier this week he proved he completed his obligation in just 6 short months. In exchange, the judge dismissed the case. “

So what do you think of the news on Evans’ case being dropped?  Would you love to see Scott get an opportunity to return to the new One Life to Live?

I wish him well but he is a grown man who knew what he was doing and shouldve known better…i do not concern myself with foolish people who get involved with drugs, especially when they know its wrong, seen what happens to others including possible death and yet think nothing bad will happen to them so they do it anyway! The drugs out there isnt the problem…its the idiots who take them. He got off too easy…these people will most often make future attempts. Its happen in my family and ended tragically. I may sound harsh but ive experienced it…most of these people will never learn no matter how hard you teach them drugs are wrong. Some might…but still not enough!

You sound like a stuck up prude…..Just because someone does something that you don’t agree with doesn’t make them less of a person…..It’s wrong to judge other people, but you have no problem with that…Sorry you had such a screwed up life because of drugs, but that doesn’t mean everyone who uses drugs is bad…

I didnt take drugs…maybe you need glasses…i said a family member did…how many times do we read someone gets arrested or dies from drugs…100s of times…the message is clearly out there that drugs are wrong and dangerous…my relative died from drugs…yet others hear and read this everyday and they still do it anyway which makes them an idiot…i never used illegal drugs nor have broken the law…and you call be a prude…why because im not foolish to break the law or do drugs(i love my life and dont intend to waste it)…you call me a prude because im a law abiding citizen who lives a clean drug free life? Why you are the biggest idiot around. P.S i didnt say he was a bad person..i might even like him if i met him…i said he’s an idiot for being a grown man who should know better and YOU should too.

I agree with u jimh 100%…Hopefully he keeps going to go to these classes…fromwhat i have xperienced is. U come back to the same atmosphere and same people there is a good chance it will happen all over again…Move away start somewhere fresh……Seen it happen 2 many times…

He didn’t get off easy, he got the standard ‘punishment’ for a first time offender. Counseling/therapy, community service, good behavior for a length of time = charges dropped.

Just because something happened in your family – does not mean it will happen that way for everyone.

Sure what happened to my family wont happen to everyone but is taking drugs worth that risk when there is still a chance it could?

I never loved nor missed him nor that douche Brett Claywell (who dissed daytime when he didn’t get an Emmy nomination in 2009).

Both are losers in my opinion.

ALL THE BEST TO HIM .HOPE HE CAN DO IT. I DON’T WANT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENED TO CORY ,HAPPEN TO HIM.AND I’D LOVE TO SEE HIM BACK ON OLTL.

So we are praising a guy who bought drugs off a undercover cop? Sorry he should have done time like everyone else .

And what would he likely be doing right now if he hadn’t gotten busted??…..Exactly.

I loved the Kish story, but I’m not feeling a whole lotta love for Scott – I do wish him well though.

Like I said on another comment: He didn’t get off easy, he got the standard ‘punishment’ for a first time offender. Counseling/therapy, community service, good behavior for a length of time = charges dropped. Like most everyone else.

Good I’d like to see him put the drugs behind him and get back to acting. Then he can again be a positive gay role-model.

Loved him on OLTL – hope he stays away from the drugs. Good Luck to him.

I think he should be given a chance and be hired back. I think he made a mistake that he didn’t think through and took his punishment like a man. He could have plead mot guilty, done time in jail, and came out worse. Be strong Scott. Go down the right road, too many have died way too young because they were too weak. Wish you the best.

I am thrilled for him and very proud, I know it wasn’t easy! We have all made mistakes, it is what we learn from them and how we move forward that builds charector!

Good to hear. Hopefully he learned his lesson. And hey, if Robert Downey Jr. can go from multiple arrests and stints in rehabs to being one of Hollywod’s top paid actors, Scott definitely deserves a second chance.

And I’d love to see Kish again someday!

Scott played one of the most beloved characters on OLTL. It was a sad day for fans when he and his partner comprising “KISH” were let go. I personally would be very happy to see him on nuOLTL. (Perhaps his brother Chris from the Fantastic 4, Captain America, and the Avengers could put in a good word for him!) I wish him the very best.

Glad to hear he was able to comply with the court’s orders. Now he can get on with his life. Would LOVE to see KISH stop by Llanview for a visit, or longer! 🙂

glad to hear scott is doing well. i hope we see him soon. on another soap. he is a terrific actor. he is human. people make mistakes all the time. he is a nice looking gay man. i always loved his acting. say no to drugs. it kills people and ruins families. im gay. i came out 2 years ago. have been offered drugs. i said no thank you. i like the clean living. like walking running and working out. love my soap operas and yes im addicted to days of our lives general hospital, bold and the beautiful and the young and the restless. im starting to like the new one life to live and all my children again. they need cameron mathison susan lucci and michael knight back. hopefully soon.

I enjoyed the Kish storyline, but there are many actors/characters I’d prefer to have back before revisiting this one. It played out and we had closure. I’d rather see John McBain, Jessica Buchanan, Roxy Balsom, Kelly Cramer, Tina Lord, Rex (no Gigi) and on and on and on…

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Kate Mansi on Her First Scenes with Eva LaRue: “It Was So Tense and Uncomfortable, Which Was So Fun For Us.”

This week, General Hospital viewers have witnessed the arrival of Eva LaRue as Blaze’s (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) mother, Natalia. When Natalia blew into her daughter’s life, she also caught Kristina (Kate Mansi) in bed. The next moment, Mansi and LaRue played the awkwardness of the scene.

In the story, and at that point, Natalia apparently didn’t have a clue that her daughter is gay, so finding Kristina is her daughter’s room was puzzling to her.

Kate Mansi spoke to Soap Opera Digest on her introduction to soap veteran LaRue, who has appeared on All My Children as Maria Santos and won a Daytime Emmy for her role as Celeste Rosales on The Young and the Restless.

“She just came in like such a freaking pro,” shared Kate on LaRue. “She was so good. It was such a funny first introduction for our characters – it was written so well and it was so tense and uncomfortable, which was so fun for us.”

The two actresses instantly created a bond. As Mansi explained, “Right away, we were doing these funny one-liners back and forth (between scenes). Blaze said something like, ‘Kristina is more than my friend, she’s my partner,’ and then they’d call, ‘Cut!’ and Eva and I would look and each other and we’d be like, ‘She means writing partner,’ or she’d be like, ‘Yeah, yeah, she means producing partner, right?’ We were just dying laughing.”

On Wednesday’s episode of GH, Natalia learned Blaze was gay, but isn’t quite believing her, thinking she had been somehow influenced by Kristina.  In the key scenes, Blaze tells Natalia that Kristina is more than her friend. She’s her girlfriend. Blaze asks if her mother heard what she truly said, and Natalia claims she did, but then starts cleaning up the place as a method of trying to cope with what she just heard.

Things get testy when Blaze says, “Kristina and I…” Next, Natalia cuts her daughter off, firmly saying, “There is no Kristina and you!”

So, did you enjoy the tension-filled scenes between Kate Mansi and Eva LaRue? Are you liking where GH is heading with the story of a disapproving and religious mother, trying to come to terms with her daughter and her girlfriend’s sexuality? Comment below.

Eric Braeden on The Young and the Restless Four-Year Renewal: “We Never Take Any of This For Granted, Trust Me”

On Tuesday, CBS officially gave The Young and the Restless a four-year renewal which will take the daytime drama series onward through its 55th anniversary season in 2027-2028.

Y&R has remained the top-rated soap opera for 36 consecutive years and CBS’ longest-running series in its storied history.

Sharing his reaction to the great news was Y&R’s iconic star, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman).  Standing outside of CBS Television City where The Young and the Restless is taped, Eric addressed the renewal in a video, and how the show could not have done this without the power of the fans all around the world.

Eric began, “We were renewed for four years. I’ve been coming to this studio for 44 years now, and now we have another four years added to it. How wonderful is that? And that’s thanks to you, to all of you, who are loyal fans all over the world.”

In addition, Braeden acknowledged how truly special the four-year pick-up is, when in this day and age, any series could get canceled at any time. “Love you all and we never take any of this for granted, trust me,” he shared. “Alright, you’d be cool. I’m very happy to hear about the four year renewal. I really am. Because in today’s world you can’t take anything for granted. And in the changing world of media, seemingly nothing is prominent. But we are here another four years. Alright, be cool everyone. I love it. And thank you. Thank you for your loyalty.”

Braeden began playing the role of ruthless business man, Victor Newman back in 1980. Throughout the years, he has shared that he initially didn’t want the role, but how it led him on an incredible journey playing this one-of-kind character on television.

What do you think about Eric acknowledgement of the enduring fans of The Young and the Restless who have kept tuning-in through thick and thin to the loves and the drama of the residents of Genoa City all these years? Comment below.
