One Life to Live once again addresses the subject of teen pregnancy beginning on the Friday, June 10th episode with the characters of Destiny Evans (Shenell Edmonds) and Matthew Buchanan (Eddie Alderson).  The story will also involve the character of Starr Manning (Kristen Alderson) who was at the center of OLTL’s popular teen pregnancy story in 2008.  Starr becomes a voice of reason for Destiny, who recently shared her first sexual experience with Matthew, as Starr wonders if she could be pregnant.

ABC Daytime has a long history of entertaining while informing, using the strong foundation of a core characters to take the audience on an emotional journey while prompting discussion among our viewers.  With the support of the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, OLTL’s 2008 teen pregnancy story explored 16-year-old Starr Manning’s first sexual experience and resulting pregnancy.

Kristen Alderson who has been hosting several of the video blogs on the ABC.com for the OLTL website hub,  sat down with Shenell Edmonds to talk about the issues facing teens these days, if they have had a sexual encounter.  For Destiny, the stakes are so high, as Matthew is in a coma clinging to life with barely any brain-activity.

Watch the discussion between Kristen and Shenell here!

I don’t know how I feel about Destiny being pregnant. I’m glad she has story to play until the end. I hope she can pull it off. I hope it is part of a bigger story that is yet to reveal itself, because I am not looking forward to seeing this play out as such. She is a minor character and so far given little compelling story to play with lasting consequences. We will see. What social message is OLTL trying to tell. Starr just went through this. Langston learned the lesson and we saw how condoms became a norm… Read more »

Todd, Shenell Edmonds (Destiny) DID have a compelling story when she found out after all these years that her “brother” Greg is actually her father, her parents are really her grandparents. Ms. Edmonds played out the story excellently. You may be right in that Destiny will chose abortion and Nora fighting to make her take the pregnancy to term. While you may think Shenell Edmonds is a minor character, she’s ALOT more interesting than the Fords brothers, Starr, Deanna, Dani and Jack Manning. As for a “minor” character, Shayne (Austin Williams) bullying story is done well. Yes, Jack Manning doing… Read more »

Hi Sue. I was let down by that conclusion that Destiny’s parents were really her Grandparents. Greg gets carted off to jail seconds later. That was rushed, and we never saw or cared where Des is living? Where is Shawn’s house. Is he ever there? Is Destiny alone? Shane is a major character because he is Rex and Gigi’s kid. We have grown to care about him already through his illness, his bonding with Brody, coming to terms with Rex being his dad. I like Destiny…don’t get me wrong. I just do not feel like the show ever had a… Read more »

I’M A DESTINY FAN. I’M NOT A FAN OF HER BEING WITH MATTHEW. SHE IS SO NEEDY OF HIM ALL THE TIME. I LOVED WATCHING MATTHEW INTERACTING WITH STARR, DANIELLE AND HIS PARENTS BO AND NORA. AND HIS COUSINS. I WONDER IF HE AND STARR WOULD BECOME LOVERS. I FEEL BAD DESTINY WHEN SHE FOUND HER BROTHER GREG IS HER FATHER. ONE THING I DO LIKE ABOUT GREG HOW HEW MANAGED TO SAVE SEAN’S LIFE. SOMETIMES I THINK DESTINY THINKS SHE OWNS MATTHEW. LIKE SHE WOULD’NT LET STARR SEE MATTHEW WHEN HE WAS IN A COMA. I DO LIKE EDDIE… Read more »

I HOPE ONE LIFE TO LIVE WILL COME BACK IN 215. I WANT TO SEE IF STARR RETURNS. SHE CAN NOT ONLY WITH MATTHEW BUT ALSO WITHER HER SISTER DANI AND HER BROTHERS JACK AND SAM.
