In a hilarious and spoofy new episode of the hit web series, Fumbling Thru The Pieces starring Hillary B. Smith (Ex-Nora, OLTL), several of the key characters are heartbroken when Shara (Diane Delano) receives a disturbing text that One Life to Live has been canceled!

Next, Barb (Tara Chocol Joyce) and Jesse (Kelsey Robinson) commiserate with Shara over losing their beloved characters in particular, Bo and Nora (with Hillary B. Smith standing right there in the form of Ellie from “Fumbling”), Clint and Viki, and Dorian!  Even Ellie’s husband Vince (Robert Maffia) we learn has a deeply rooted connection and affection for One Life to Live.

As the gals feel the loss of One Life to Live they also reveal All My Children has been axed too! One of the funnier moments happens when Jesse says, “Just a tad”  and Shara says, “Tad! No more Tad Martin!”  All the while, Hillary as Ellie is the one character who could care less about the soaps!

Watch the new episode of Fumbling Thru The Pieces entitled, “They Killed Our Soap”  after the jump, and let us know what you think!

what I notice most? to be real honest? Is that Hillary is so much more the professional actor than anyone else in the cast. She’s just natural. She makes it easy and believable. Good Lord I miss OLTL.

Must be a pretty talented cast since they came in 1ST and 2ND place this month for FAVORITE Web SERIES in the polls! Hillary came in 1st place for FAVORITE actress and Robert Maffia came in 2nd place for FAVORITE actor! Sounds pretty talented to me 😉 Kudos to the Fumbling CAST & CREW!!!

It would have been very, very funny anyway, but with Hillary B. Smith right there it’s just . . . hilarious.

“You know he does call me ‘Nora’ in bed sometimes.” Too much.

I’ve watched a couple of these episodes and am really having trouble becoming interested in it. I see the humor the writers clearly were going for in this one. However, the dialogue and the acting aren’t very good.

If this is the type of quality that OLTL and AMC would have become if they had survived as internet soaps, their demise may have been a blessing in disguise.

I watched Guiding Light for years. The last 12 months of that show with the shakey, hand-camera filming and scenes like Reva sitting on a sofa in paneled room folding clothes were enough for me. At the time, I was sorry to see GL cancelled. Looking back on it, it would have been far kinder to have axed Reva and fans before resorting to that cheap filming.

Watching these episodes makes me wonder if OLTL and AMC were spared from being a show of this quality.

I think “Fumbling” has one of the most talented casts on the Web and the writing is brilliant! Fumbling is a show that NEEDS to be on TV. Can’t wait to see the next episode!

This was funny but I was distracted by the god awful hair extention they put on Hilary’s head. It looked like a squirrel crawled up and latched itself to her head!

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
