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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
