Joe LoCicero on His B&B Demise: “I Do Believe I’m Done Filming But it is a Soap Opera So Anything is Possible”

Now that Vinny is a-goner, the lives of many of the Spencers, Forresters, and Logans will be thrown into turmoil on upcoming episodes of CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.

Actor Joe LoCicero began playing Thomas’ (Matthew Atkinson) best bud, Vinny, back in 2019 and along the way has done some shady and despicable deeds.

He chatted exclusively with Soap Opera Digest about his character’s demise, sharing that B&B’s head writer and executive producer, Brad Bell, gave him the heads up a few episodes before his untimely end on the daytime drama series, sharing, “It wasn’t a lot of notice because they wanted to keep the story a secret.”

LoCicero who is married to actress Gina Rodriguez, who at one time also appeared on B&B as Beverly, shared that his wife was bummed out by his exit.

Now as to whether viewers have seen the last of Vinny in flashbacks, or if there is twin lurking around, all LoCiero slyly would share was, “I do believe I’m done filming but it is a soap opera so anything is possible.”

So, did you enjoy Joe’s performances? Should he come back as Vinny’s twin? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

How is this a “major” death? Vinny was not a major character, and how is what he did by switching the paternity results WORSE than what Flo did by allowing Hope and Liam to believe their baby was DEAD?! The logic on this show is non-existent, and I really wish the character who died was Flo instead. It’s beyond me that anyone in the Logan family can forgive her for what she did, and how Wyatt could have ended things with Sally for Flo.

I guess Joe LoCicero was right. He was done, mowed down, or not, by someone who felt he got what he deserved. Could he have been dead already and put there to make it look like a hit and run? Today when Bill was trying to soothe Liam, he said he saw him walk in front of the car which is not true,because neither of them saw anything until they felt the thud. This should get very interesting, especially the way they drag out things. Just don’t know how long I can take Liam’s moaning and groaning . I really… Read more »

Remembering One Life to Live on the 10th Anniversary of its Final Episode on ABC

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the final broadcast of ABC’s One Life to Live. The beloved soap opera was canceled back in April of 2011 along with All My Children, and continued to air till January 13, 2012.

As the story goes, after some false starts, the show wound up in the hands of Prospect Park in an attempted online reboot of the series which lasted some 40 plus episodes, and one season on Hulu in 2013.

Agnes Nixon’s brainchild first took to the airwaves back on July 15, 1968 on ABC, and tackled many of the social issues of our time, delivered unforgettable performances, beloved soap on-screen couples, and often humorous and edgy storylines.

When the soap was initially canceled by ABC, we took to our former site to share our thoughts in the piece here back in 2011.

At the end of its 43-year-run it was then EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took the show to third place in the ratings among six soaps, and delivered a one-two punch of heart, humor, and drama to close out the ABC run of  One Life. (We have posted the final episode below).

Through the years the actors who graced the screen were ,and are, some of the all-time great actresses including: Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Judith Light, Jessica Tuck, Susan Haskell, and so many more.

It also brought us the talented actors including: Al Freeman Jr., Roger Howarth, Trevor St. John, Gerald Anthony, Michael Zaslow, Robert S. Woods, Ryan Phillippe, Nathan Fillion, and the list goes on.

Below, rewatch the final episode, and the extremely well-crafted and delivered speech given by the character of Viki on the penultimate episode, how soap operas touch so many lives a la “Fraternity Row” (But, as we all know, the show was speaking directly to the longtime viewers at home about their cancellation!)

Those videos are followed two emotional interviews we conducted on the final press day of ABC’s One Life to Live with Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, then Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods that we are reposting here.

Now, share your thoughts and remembrances of when you watched the final episodes of One Life to Live, and how you still miss it to this day via the comment section.
