One Life to Live’s Kassie DePaiva recently taped a very interesting and emotional interview for HDNet’s series, Naughty But Nice with host, Rob Shuter.

During the conversation DePaiva elaborated on the now infamous teleconference call with Brian Frons informing the cast of All My Children and One Life to Live that they had been canceled, the initial promise of the Prospect Park deal that would move the show from network television to its new Online Network, and how she took a pay cut a few years ago when AMC moved to L.A. and OLTL moved into their new studios and much more.

Watch after the jump as Kassie and Rob Shuter’s chitchat on all things OLTL and watch for the cute ending of the segment from DePaiva!

I for one would watch OLTL & AMC on whatever network or forum it could possibly show up on. I am dreading the day the folks from Lanview leave my day the way the AMC People did. You all will be missed greatly.

I think a million viewers would pay a fee, but saying that isn’t going to fund the investment capital necessary to produce the show, and no one seems willing to believe there are enough fans who will put their money where their mouth is. I can’t believe there isn’t one billionaire on this planet who couldn’t afford $50 million for OLTL when some of them spend that much for a painting. Paul Allen spent $160 million for a yacht that costs $20 million a year to maintain. Besides, what would be more of a babe magnet than saving and producing… Read more »

Kassie, I love what you did and I loved Blair too. It’s been great fun watching you for the last 18 years–you are the best. You radiant beauty from the inside out. Thank you for entertaining us and being you. I am going to miss you and Blair so much. I hope to see you as a regular on some primetime series.

I am fighting the fight to save these iconic beautiful stories . I am a SWAN! I Stand With Agnes Nixon! I have been a 40 plus year viewer/consumer/fan of OLTL and AMC and GH, tho OLTL has always been my favorite. The hours from 1-3 in my time zone are going to be so lost. These characters, these actors have been in my home as family every day, 5 days a week.. yr long. I cannot fathom a day without them .. television has lost its integrity and it values and morals. ABC/Disney could reverse it if they chose… Read more »

Yes, lilysmoonfire, US fans WILL continue to fight for our soaps. The fight isn’t over yet. Those idiotic replacement shows will tank, and tank big, as millions of soap fans will never watch them. NBC has received so many emails asking them to pick up OLTL, and I’m truly amazed that they don’t realize what a truly great show it is, and how many fans would tune in to NBC each and every day. Well, hopefully “someone” out there will come to their senses soon.

I feel your sadness, but let’s keep it real. NBC will never pick up OLTL. NBC didn’t cancelled Passions only to later pick up ABC’s remains.

The sad reality is that all three networks want soap operas out of their schedule. Asking NBC to pick up OLTL is leaving in a fantasy land instead of planet Earth.

abc should be ashamed of themselves, disappointing millions of fans by canceling OLTL. i can not believe it and i am so upset . this has always been a fabulous show and i will miss it so much. i will not watch whatever they replace it with. SHAME ON YOU. ABC

I agree with all of you. I am so upset by ABC’s decision to cancel this show, and I am equally upset by the way they have treated the OLTL cast and all of their fans. I am willing to follow OLTL where ever it goes if anyone will be willing to pick them up. ABC’s reputation has been forever tainted in my eyes. I hope they realize how many lifelong viewers they have lost. And since they obviously do not care about these millions of dedicated ABC viewers, I will no longer support them. After Jan 13th, the only… Read more »

I am very very upset about OLTL going off for good as I was with all my children. Now, I won’t have anything good to watch anymore and for sure I will be missing all those fine , fine, actors. Boo Hoo Shame on that creep that did this to us!!!!!!!!!!!

I am really going to miss OLTL! At first the only reason I started watching it was because I wanted to get my mind off of 7th Heaven ending. But then I started to become addicted to OLTL! What am I going to do without 7th Heaven and without OLTL! I would go out and buy me some 7th Heaven dvds if I had the money. My two favorite shows in the whole wide world gone! This is sad! :’-(

Aw Kassie you’re a class act all the way….
I’m so sorry we’re not going to see more of Blair Cramer in the future.
But I wish you the very best of luck in your future ventures.

I will be so sad on the last air date. I refuse to watch the CHEW (more like SPEW) or the revolution. ABC sucks for doing this. I won’t watch ANY of their shows…daytime or prime time, ever. I am willing to not watch Modern family and other great shows just to “flip the bird” at ABC. We were going to buy season passes for Disneyland, too, but we decided not to, just because of the “soap slaughter.” I would totally subscribe to a SOAP channel, and pay for lit like I do SHOWTIME and HBO. I wish that were… Read more »

NMy family (mother and brothes) bave watched all 3 the abc soaps for over 30 years. We loved Dis using things that bad happened and making predictions on what would happen next. I was so mad when they announced they were cancelled that I couldn’t watch any SPF them any more. I was even madder when I heard how they determined how many viewers they had. They only counted live viewers and ones that watched the recorded version the same day. Before DVR. I used VHS tapes to record and watch the shows. Now I record and watch them on… Read more »

In my heart of hearts I believe that Prospect Park was paid by ABC to come in and take the heat off of them. All of this has been in too much of a clean and neat package. First ABC makes the announcement in April that they are canceling AMC & OLTL…they get major heat from both fans and advertisers, so in July this company, PP comes out of nowhere and announces that they are going to continue on with both shows in an online format. Keep in mind that one of the co-owners of PP is Richard H. Frank,… Read more »

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
