Is Susan Haskell out at One Life to Live?

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.

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… Read more »

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 !!!!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

General Hospital

General Hospital Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Share your condolences and remembrances for Annie in the comment section.  But first, check out some scenes from her time on General Hospital below.

All My Children

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Chrishell Stause Makes a Return to Days of our Lives

You just never know who you will find in purgatory (ah-hem) on Days of our Lives ! And now, in a surprise return, Chrishell Stause reprises her role of Jordan Ridgeway in all new episodes on the Peacock streaming soap opera.

In the latest promo released on Friday, Chrishell is seen in the ‘afterlife’ as Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow) runs into Jordan … her old arch-nemesis! Let the games begin.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.

Chrishell made her DAYS debut back in August of 2013 and exited the series on March 9th of 2015.  Stause returned in 2019 until Jordan finally met her demise. She returned once again in 2020 in a series of flashbacks.

Watch the promo for next week’s DAYS below.

Now let us know, what do you think of Chrishell returning to DAYS to raise some hell for Kate and company? Comment below.
