It was always funny how fans of AMC and OLTL say they boycott ABC over those two soaps cancellation but CBS cancelled these two iconic soaps GL ans ATWTs and no one said they were boycotting that network!!!

hey Jimh..
ABC has the best primetime soaps, really great entertainment programing.
If they want to be kooky and miss out on the awesome series, their loss, and foolish..
Like g’ma would say;
”don’t cut off your nose to spite your face” ….

Anyways, I have no idea as to who those people are lol, so you enjoy seeing them, once again !

The amount of time spent with the GL and ATWT actors was PATHETIC. Each group must have gotten no more than 5 minutes. Very sad. If The Talk wanted to “celebrate” 30 years of CBS being #1 in the ratings, why not devote a whole week (5 episodes) to it, giving each show its own hour??? There primarily were 5 shows in the period (if you exclude “Capitol” which was cancelled in 1987, after the first year of the 30 year run and “Let’s Make a Deal”)….. MONDAY — Price is Right, bringing on Bob Barker, Drew Carey and (highly… Read more »

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
