One Life to Live’s exiting Brett Claywell (Kyle) opened up to Zap2it.com on how Scott Evans and he found out the end was here for Kish, his bizarre night at the GLAAD Media Awards, and if he would consider coming back to work at One Life to Live in the future, should the opportunity arise.   Here are some excerpts!

Brett on how both he and Scott Evans found out they were being written out: “We found out separately. I found out the day before the story broke; I was at “One Life to Live” because I was submitting my Emmy reel. And the same day I’m submitting my Emmy reel, Frank [Valentini] tells me that they’re no longer continuing the storyline and that I’ve filmed my last day. I do believe there’s a certain way that things have to be done to protect the machine, and there are certain things that could be done differently.  Scott found out through somebody tweeting him, and absolutely, that’s not the way he should’ve found out. It shouldn’t happen that way. Scott and I were disappointed that we’d already filmed our last day together. That would’ve been nice to know. We were like, “We’re not even going to work together again.” That was the most upsetting part.”

Brett is he would ever come back to OLTL, if asked: “It’s hard to say right now. We told a story and they decided that they didn’t want to continue it, so to come back and re-address it would be something to think about. I know I’d definitely love to work with Scott again. We developed a really good friendship and I’m a little disappointed that I worked my last day with him and didn’t even know it. We never got to put closure to it. We’ve talked about it, and we’re not bitter at “One Life to Live.” I’m appreciative to Frank.  Things could’ve been handled differently, but at the end of the day the fact that this is such a big deal to so many people is a testament to the work that we did. I’m proud of that.”

Brett on his evening at the GLAAD Awards and OLTL winning Outstanding Daily Drama” : “I never heard it! We saw the trophy backstage and otherwise there was no mention of it during the ceremony. I don’t know if GLAAD is upset with “One Life to Live” — I didn’t get it. Scott and I presented! I felt like we had such a big impact in the LGBT community that we would’ve been recognized a little bit. I’m not upset that we weren’t, but I was a little surprised. I thought they would at least mention us because what we did was groundbreaking.”

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.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

In a statement on her new hosting gig and show, Ripa expressed: “After 23 years of interviewing celebrities, authors, musicians and experts on live TV, the big takeaway is that the most compelling and unfiltered conversations happen off camera. I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.
