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 why Matt’s an asshole. Now we have no idea what changed his mind from the time Drew was born. I mean, he named his son for crying out loud with Bo right there! It makes no sense. Guess we’ll have to wait until Matthew and Dani have a relationship, she dumps his ass (again!) and he goes crawling back to Destiny… that’s if she’ll still have him, lol!

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!

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!

In a statement, Gareth Neame expressed: “When the television series drew to a close it was our dream to bring the millions of global fans a movie and now, after getting many stars aligned, we are shortly to go into production.  Julian’s script charms, thrills and entertains and in Brian Percival’s hands we aim to deliver everything that one would hope for as Downton comes to the big screen.”

Focus Features chairman, Peter Kujawski, shared: “Since the series ended, fans of Downton have long been waiting for the Crawley family’s next chapter.
