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.

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!!

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.

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

In response to the announced season six conclusion, creator Dan Fogelman tweeted: “Whoever casually first said ‘All good things must come to an end’ never had to end their favorite thing. While sad to have just 1 season left, also grateful to NBC for letting us end the show how, and when, we always intended. We’ll work hard to stick the landing.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.
