We Love Soaps is reporting this afternoon that two-time Daytime Emmy Award winning actress, Susan Haskell (Marty Saybrooke) has been let-go by One Life to Live. If ABC and OLTL confirm this, it would make sense since Susan’s character has been written into a bit of a corner, with seemingly nowhere to go, and a somewhat murky vision of the direction of Marty.

On a side note: This is a shame… as Haskell is one of the most talented actresses in the genre today.  Stay tuned for further details in the coming days.

Nooooo :'( I love Marty/Susan Haskell. I enjoyed her scenes with Natalie and always hoped for a Jarty reunion 🙁

Jarty? Seriously? Ugghh!! They were voted in the top 5 of all of television’s most boring couples. Thank god that is FINALLY OVER. 3 years of that snoozefest was long enough!!

Jarty rules! Jolie was the one that was boring.

I was hoping for a Jarty reunion too. Grr stupid writers had to ruin everything! >.<

That is absolutely horrible. Susan Haskell is one of the best actresses on the show.

SUCH a shame they did that to Marty. Susan is hella talented, and I wish her the best of luck. Truly is OLTL’s loss.

Sidenote, I guess that means we’re not going TK as Patrick returning any time soon aye?

I’m not surprised at all because Marty truly has been written into a corner. After Cole went to prison, it seemed like Marty was being transformed back into the troublemaker she was when she was first introduced in the early ’90s, which would have been great because Susan Haskell hasn’t had much to do. Unfortunately, that came to a screeching halt in January when the writers decided to have her lose touch with reality, which was totally unbelievable and completely out of character. The strength that had always been lingering behind Marty’s vulnerability has been absent since her breakdown. She’s become pathetic and vindictive and just a plot device to be changed and manipulated for the sake of the story. An actress with Susan Haskell’s talent deserves so much better.

Bad move for OLTL, if its true. Because there are a lot of stuff they can do with Marty, like being with her grandchild, for one.

This has got to be the worst discussion OLTL PTB have made in a long time. BIG mistake. Susan is a very talented actress- 2 time emmy winner, Can’t believe the writers could not find a story for her character Marty. I am not happy! I guess OLTL will have one less viewer.

Although I love Susan as an actress, the news doesn’t suprise me. Her character has NO ties to the canvas anymore, and she has been written into a corner. I enjoyed her rivalry with Natalie, but even that’s played out. She has become the” Lindsay” in the Bo/Nora storyline back in the day,
I am hoping that this exit will lead to my Jolie getting back together. For good this time!!

I hope that John/Natalie don’t get back together. That pairing is just about as fun as watching paint dry.

OLTL– Another stupid mistake!!!! This is not what the fans want! We want good actors, who can portray good characters and that is what Haskell does! What do we get to keep? The Ford brothers! Enuf !!!!

Good ..maybe now TK will consider a move to the west coast and come back to AMC(wishful thinking)

Depressing,just depressing.TPTB at OLTL have missed the mark by letting Susan Haskell go,what with the confirmed news that Roger Howarth is returning to the show ( I’m sure it has to be as the REAL Todd)…and if that’s the case -it’s even more of a shame to be denied a TRUE Marty /Todd rematch.And for God’s sake I wouldn’t want them romantically involved – I can’t even picture the two of together.
But they DO have a history AND a future via their grandchild Hope.
Couldn’t you just see the two of them warring over her and vying for her affections.
I just feel there are opportunities for more story for these two characters portrayed as ONLY these two phenomenal actors can.
I would like to see the writers commence The Tale of Two Todds story,put Marty back into St.Anne’s while they write a storyline for her and bring her back in the Fall.
If the TPTB don’t make the most of this opportunity to have Susan and Roger share the screen again -MANY of us are going to feel SO CHEATED. 🙁

That was so messed up to get rid of Susan.I thought her and Brody would make a good couple .Could fall inlove on that show and make some good story lines.I loved the story lines with her and patrick.They really threw her storyline to the corner and tried to make her out like a terrible actress.Knowing she is one of the best actress on that show.alot could of been done with her storyline.Its ashame that one life to live is going to be no longer.They are making a big mistake.

It was really messed up on how the writers treated Marty. I wish they would had let her be with John and let her be happy. She deserved happiness after all the stuff she had been through. We all know the writers favourite is “Natalie” *gags* I used to like Natalie when she first came on the show and was paired with Cris. She was my favourite back then but I feel her character was ruined when they started pairing her with John. She became a totally different person when she was with him. She didn’t care much about what was going on with her family All she cared about was being with him. I feel they had no chemistry whatsoever. Watching paint dry is more fun watching. Her character was starting get good again when they paired her with Jared but no the writers had to go and ruin that and have her interested in John again. >.< She really didn't morn Jared for very long at all. She got over him way too fast in my opinion. According to the writers and her rabid fans she is practically perfect in every way. I hope Jessica gives Natalie her just deserts someday soon.

I forgot to add this. Natalie seems like she is the new Tina. They act the same way. They always land up messing up in someway.

Alluding to their time apart, Rena noted, “The three years we spent apart were humbling and heartbreaking but vital to us finding each other again. The love I have for you now is the foundation of my life. I can’t imagine another moment NOT walking through life with you hand in hand and our hearts entwined. You are the love of my life, and it’s not ‘oops we did it again, but I’m so grateful we did it again!❤️❤️❤️”

Previously, Sofer was married to GH and Days star, Wally Kurth (Ned and Justin, respectively) from 1995-1997, and the two share a daughter together, Rosabel Rosalind Kurth. Rena and Sanford were previously married from 2005 to 2017 and share a daughter together, Avalon Leone.

REPORT: Matthew Atkinson Back to The Bold and the Beautiful

When we last saw The Bold and the Beautiful’s Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson), he headed out of Los Angeles with his son, Douglas (Henry Joseph Samiri) and headed to Paris. The decision to leave was prompted by Hope (Annika Noelle) turning down his marriage proposal once again, and by prodding from his sister, Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).

Many Thope fans have wanted to see Hope and Thomas reunite and figure out where to take their relationship next, but he has been nowhere insight, and so has his portrayer, Matthew Atkinson.

However, in a new report from Soap Hub, their sources indicate that Atkinson will be back on screen next month by mid-June. In a tease, Atkinson posted a photo on his Instagram story (which has since disappeared, since IG story posts only stay up for 24 hours), where he was pointing at a TV screen behind him that showed Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) and Eric (John McCook) in a scene. No telling the true meaning of that snap, but it could be he is back at the show.

As Hope and Finn (Tanner Novlan) are getting closer, the timing could just work out in the most dramatic way if Thomas were to return. Since Hope and Finn are bonding over their parents, Sheila (Kimberlin Brown) and Deacon’s (Sean Kanan), upcoming nuptials, will the doctor and the designer hit the sheets and Thomas walks in on it?

Now let us know, when Thomas returns do you want to see him reconcile things with Hope, or do you want him back to the obsessed Thomas of the past who hatched plots to get what he wanted? Comment below.

General Hospital

General Hospital’s Maurice Benard Defends Sonny Going Postal, “It Could Definitely Happen”

Last Friday’s May 17th cliffhanger of General Hospital saw Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) beating up Dex (Evan Hofer) and threatening to shoot and kill both Dex and Jason (Steve Burton), who is restraining him outside the ballroom at the wedding reception of Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase (Josh Swickard).

For months, Sonny has been taking less than his prescribed dosage of medication to control his bipolar disorder.  The mobster has no idea that he has been duped by Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart), who is the one that set this dangerous situation in motion, in an effort to eliminate Sonny and eventually Jason from interfering in Pikeman taking over the territory.

One fan questioned the validity of Sonny’s reaction to Dex and Jason after the pei, when he took to X and expressed, “People off their medications don’t necessarily go around hitting people and being out of control. This was the WRONG message to send. I don’t expect anything from Frank Valentini and General Hospital anymore, but you could’ve (and should’ve) stopped it cold.”

Maurice Benard replied back to that comment and defended the actions of Sonny given the circumstances. The three-time Daytime Emmy-winner shared, “This is true but when you have a character like Sonny who’s volatile and is drinking and is manic and his thoughts are taken him over it could definitely happen like I said, ‘bipolar ain’t pretty.”‘

GH has portrayed Sonny’s battle with mental illness and the importance of keeping on your meds, plus the issues surrounding it for years. However, some fans have not been pleased by this latest plot point.


The pick-up of the story begins tomorrow on Monday, May 20th where teasers for the episode share: Sonny is horrified. Blaze consoles Kristina (who walked in on her dad threatening Jason and Dex) and Jason summons Carly.

So, what did you think of the plot point of Sonny threatening to kill Dex and Jason, after beating up Dex, given his growing paranoia? Comment below.
