As every one in soapland knows Kyle (Brett Claywell) and Fish (Scott Evans) are set to exit One Life to Live on-air in mid-April. But, TV Guide Magazine reports today, as we all have known, that for our favorite gay couple Kish, there’s still some plot before we have to say our sad goodbyes on April 12th, their last airdate, which has been confirmed by ABC.  Kyle will be back on air solo for one episode on April 16th.

As previously announced on March 29, Fish will find out he’s the father of baby Sierra Rose.  Scott Evans (Fish) tells TV Guide the fans are upset over the police officer’s inability (thus far) to deal with the elephant in the room, that he could be the baby daddy of Sierra Rose. “There are a lot of angry fans saying, ‘Why doesn’t Fish just man up and be responsible?‘ But they’re missing the bigger picture. This is a scary thing Fish isn’t ready for. He’s just out of the closet. He’s just started a new relationship. People take nine months to prepare to welcome a child into their lives. Fish isn’t mentally prepared to take this next step forward. He’s from this conservative upbringing and there’s a part of him that thinks a kid should have a father and a mother. I don’t necessarily agree with that. As long as you have parents who love you, it doesn’t matter what sex they are.”But, for Fish, well… he can’t just lose all the things he was taught his whole life in just a matter of a few months. I wish everybody would give Fish a break here. He still has unresolved hang-ups about his family—especially his father—and that takes time to get over. A lot of the gay fans don’t see it that way, but if gays want acceptance, we also have to accept gay people who think differently from the rest of us—and then try to change their minds!”

Accrdg to TVGC, OLTL offered Evans a contract but Evans declined. Thus, he didn’t want to be tied down to the show should there be other offers. Not wanting to sign on w/ OLTL is all the more reason why he shouldn’t complain of OLTL’s axing him or using these so called “tactics” since he didn’t take their offer anyway. It must have gotten difficult for OLTL to work around his schedule since he’s not signed w/ OLTL. So that gave OLTL even more reasons to axe him. This kish drama is going to reach its boiling pt at the… Read more »

Scott Evans has never been offered a contract with OLTL. He even teasingly remarked in an open interview once that his mother would likely have a contract with the show before he would. Nelson Branco consistently makes up garbage and it is quite well known that you can’t believe anything he puts in print. TV Guide would be smart to get rid of such a rumor and “gossip” monger and find a REAL journalist that will stick to the facts. Even posters from Canada can’t stand NB and say not to believe anything he prints. He is well known for… Read more »

Really? That’s interesting Jeri. Evans should categorically state that he was not offered one by OLTL to clarify this issue.

LOL Susan from Arizona! No I don’t work for ABC, but this other Kish fan thought I was Frons’s brother! LOL I guess the kish fans are into conspiracy theories. I’m an avid soap fan like many ppl on the soap websites, although many kish fans seem to be fans only of kish, and are unfamiliar w/ the nature of soaps or w/ storylines other than kish. So their perspectives might be limited only to kish. I don’t hate kish. I wrote on here that I liked Claywell’s acting in Kish since he carried the pairing bec Evans was complete… Read more »

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
