Definitely yes on Roxy. I really want her to anchor a working class sliver of the canvas with her “sons” Schuyler and Kyle.

Meh on Delphina. I overdosed on her a bit by the time the show ended on ABC.

While I love Roxy, it’s time to move on from the Balsoms especially since Rex and Gigi aren’t returning. And I’ve had more than enough of Delfino. I was never much of a fan of the physic plots. The show needs now to focus on relationships between the A-team characters.

Roxy, as embodied by Ilene Kristen, became one of my top favorite characters on OLTL. Having watched the show from day one I felt she helped bring it back to its roots (ie: the working class Wolek family) but with amazing humor as a bonus. So, YES to having Ilene back in the role of Roxy.

Yes! Roxy needs to be back for sure. Maybe Schuyler can be recast and get out of prison and come back to town.

I would LOVE to have Roxy and Delphina back on OLTL! Roxy is definitely needed, and I love Delphina popping in and out when they need her psychic abilities!

I hope with the new writing team that they can enjoy and write for these characters like Ron and Frank did!

Agree-Roxy all the time & Delphina coming & going. Love them both. But there is not a need for Delphina every day. I am so happy about this, just cannot wait.

Roxy is one of the most wonderful and colorful charactors of OLTL. I can’t imagine
life in llanview without her. Delphia surely made her mark as well. I hope to see them
both on the reboost.

Yes, we need Roxy, and Delphina from time to time. I think a great storyline for Roxy, that would go well with the ABC ending, would be for Roxy and her band of soap fans to find out that they were successfull in saving Fraternity Row after all. Have it mirror what us fans went through, and let Fraternity Row be revived online like we got OLTL & AMC! Since the last we saw her, she was mourning her show like we were OLTL, it would make a nice ending to that story as well as help with the continuity,… Read more »

No we do not need Ilene Kristen Or Lea. One Life to Live has enough dramatic actors to fill the canvas for 30 minutes where they do not need slap stick scene fillers. That is just what Ilene and Lea are nothing but scene fillers. Roxy’s family was written off to Paris (and to be clear not Paris Texas, the real Paris) And the cast I am sure Is very happy about that. How about writing back in Patricia Elliott? She can act and was one of the forgotten one’s. I think it was absolutely horrid not to have her… Read more »

I wouldn’t mind Delphina coming back from time to time, but I don’t want Roxy back at all. I found nothing funny about her. Actually both are too idiotic for this show.

YES to Roxy returning!!! They really need to approach her about returning to Llanview.

Yes, please bring back both characters! Roxy and Delfina are very enjoyable Llanview family members who provide special insight that we need. We sometimes have to speak to past family members who have crossed over or we need the care that only Roxy or Delfina can give. I believe that these special type characters is what made OLTL so different and so wonderful. Everyone wasn’t rich and powerful like the premise of so many other shows.

Lori Loughlin To Make Holiday Movie For Great American Family

Lori Loughlin (Ex-EON and Full House) will be making a holiday movie for Great American Family. Look for production to start later this year.

The announcement of the upcoming Christas pic follows on the heels of Loughlin’s Fall Into Winter which dropped on January 28th on GAF.

The movie marked Lori’s first romantic comedy screen appearance since serving time in 2020 for her part in the college admissions scandal. She returned to acting after her prison time, and after being let go by the Hallmark Channel in When Hope Calls which was a spinoff of When Calls the Heart.

Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media had previously shared: “Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years. We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”

So what do you think of a Lori Loughlin/Great American Family holiday film on the way for later in 2023? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
