Tonight TOLN Soaps and On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman launched their first Google Hang Out Chat where selected fans got to join in on the conversation live on their webcams and ask questions directly to the guest who for the premiere episode was One Life to Live’s Melissa Archer (Natalie Buchanan)!

Throughout the chat, host Michael asked Melissa questions on the return of One Life to Live, Natalie’s new set, what is happening between Natalie and Cutter as seen in the First Look One Life to Life preview reel and much more.  In addition, Michael posed questions from Twitter and facebook from fans of Melissa’s including: how long she might be staying in Llanview? And, who were some of Natalie’s all-time favorite hook-ups?

Next, the special guest fans asked some very intriguing questions, and we got a tease from Melissa of just where Natalie might be headed in terms of where she is in her life and what it may cause her do in all new episodes. In addition,  our hangout fans each revealed to Melissa, what has been there favorite Natalie moment on OLTL throughout the time she has played the role!

Watch the video after the jump, and let us know what you thought of it? Do you like the concept? What do you think of some of Melissa’s answers? Are you psyched for One Life’s return more after seeing this?  Let us know as we get close to the premiere episode of One Life to Live on April 29th!

I love this!!! I always wanted the soaps stuff like Google Hangouts, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr and even the teen magazines, what a great way to interact with fans. I also LOVED Melissa’s answers, hope to see more Google Hangout with the rest of the cast of OLTL and also the cast of AMC.

Melissa was wonderful. SO much fun! This is a fantastic way to promote the shows and let fans reach out and be involved. I saw it live and re-wached again last night!! Thank you for doing this. It makes us feel closer to the stars we love so much.

Cant wait to see OLTL and AMC but unfotunately my two daughters age 9 and 10 will not be permitted. Theyll have to wait til their 18 and make that decision. Two years ago they sometimes watched with me and liked Shane, Jack, Sam and Destiny and appeared to be future soap fans but now with the adult content i will not allow them to watch. I do not allow my young children see R rated movies with explicit sexual content and nudity, obscene language or allow them to view shows with graphic violence so the same rules apply with tv and shows online. I feel childhood is fleeting and want them to enjoy it while they can, and not deal with that adult stuff until they are mature adults. It sure isnt like when my mother introduced me to the show when i was 11, and could watch. I will be watching these myelf with my mother and sometimes my husband on April 29th. Thanks to my neighbor and friend Jim for allowing me to use his computer while ours is in repair.

Hey Kim… I admire and commend your post! They really will miss out on the multi-generational families watching together… if they push the envelope too far. That is a sad thing especially after 70+ years of serialized drama on radio, TV and now on-line. If I had children I would do the same thing. There will be multi-generations watching… just not together… and that is a loss. The idea that they need to bring a reality TV woman from a less than stellar show to come on as a bartender shows that they are trying hard to get viewers but not necessarily the right viewers. I have loved OLTL for all of the years it has been on… but if it isn’t OLTL and if it is pandering or using gratuitous anything… it will cause me to stop watching it. Again… I applaud you for your post and your parenting!!!

why don’t you wait and see what will be offered first before you criticize-or better yet, let your kids live in the real world. Parents like you are the reason so many kids are screwed up today. Grow up, will ya? We have fought for 2 years now to get AMC and OLTL back-and we don’t need people like you judging something that hasn’t even aired yet. Life is not a Leave It To Beaver rerun, and it’s about time you realized that

First off, great interview and so nice to see other soap fans joining in and participating. Would love to see more of these.

How beautiful is Melissa? GORGEOUS! So kind of her to take time for the fans. She always seems so genuine and down to earth.

If you get a shot at another video interview like this, I would love to see Robin Strasser (DORIAN) and get her take on all sorts of things. Robin seems like a straight shooter and someone who does not hold back, I imagine that being another great interview.

I agree, Melissa looked STUNNING-the year-plus off seemed to agree with her (she has either dropped weight or shifted it around) I could never decide on her attractiveness during the network run, but I never took my eyes off her either. But, now, she will DEFINITELY be a character to watch this time around

Natalie belongs with John. The ending of the show was good because they belonged together. Now its screwed up. I hope they find their way back together!

WATCH: ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Cold Open: ‘Days of our Impeachment’

In a week that saw Days of our Lives make the mainstream news media, Saturday Night Live decided to spoof the current President Trump impeachment hearings and turn them into its own amped up soap opera, with special guest star, Jon Hamm.  The hearings are also currently upsetting many a soap fan its pre-emptions of their network daytime dramas.

In the SNL cold open; Mad Men alum Jon Hamm took on the role of  former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Bill Taylor.  Kate McKinnon reprised her portrayal of President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, while Heidi Gardner played a fainting soapy impeachment hearing attendee.

Meanwhile, SNL’s Alex Moffat played House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff and Mikey Day served as “cross-examiner” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan.  Cecily Strong took on the role of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and Pete Davidson portrayed  attorney Michael Avenatti.  Then, Kenan Thompson stopped by as  suspended NFL player Myles Garrett and Melissa Villaseñor played “telenovela sensation,” Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As “AOC”, Melissa says: “This hearing is lacking one thing — a star!” . She then let her hair down and makes out with Taylor played by Hamm.

Now below watch Days of our Impeachment and let us know what you thought of the send-up via the comment section below!

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.
