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.”

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
