I now understand how they cast the new Matthew and Destiny. What I don’t understand is why they tested them for chemistry the way that they did. The chemistry between Matthew and Destiny was never sexual; their relationship was a sweet, but complicated friendship. Now there’s not even a hint of that. I honestly think the writers are writing these characters as if Matthew was never there for Destiny when she gave birth to Drew, as if the fight they had after Matthew’s return from the hospital was their last scene together. THIS would make so much sense as to… Read more »

OLTL has to get back to the heart-warming stories like they always had before! This is one of the reasons OLTL is my favorite soap…Haven’t seen these kind of stories on OLTL now.. Does anyone miss the heart-warming stories like I do?????

I watched One Life to Live for the stories and characters. It is difficult to care about the characters the way they are writing the show. I do not care for coarse language and do not enjoy watching explicit sexual scenes. This is not interesting to me, as I like the human stories of a soap.

I agree with you. They have gotten away from the heart-warming stories which I enjoyed so much!

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.
