Thank you for posting this wonderful classic episode of One Life to Live. What a magnificent cast. What magnificent story telling. I cried all over again.

A mediator? That’s the best they could do. Spice it up B&B. He’s comes in as a mediator then gets involved in a classic ‘Bell I love triangles’ twist. Eric/the mediator/Charlie. Now THAT’S a triangle. And he’s a gold digger LOL.

Yes,please give him more of a permanent role. Please bring a new guy or two into Los Angeles and shake things up! I had the biggest crush on him back in the day. I had to do a double take, I would not have recognized him without the prompting. Still handsome.

Thanks for including the OLTL episode in this article. I only got thru the first segment and I am starting to tear up. What a treat to see “Dr Larry” and “Rev Carpenter”. You reminded me of how wonderful that series was. Michael, thanks again. Sincerely, Mark (who started watching OLTL around 1970)

Loved Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, including his role as “Sully.”

Very excited to see Joe back on daytime television and I do hope he’ll get to stay for a while. This is going to be great!

There was no way I could get through that episode; just the opening scene had me emotionally wrecked. That was THE most heartbreaking episode, well, along with Stone’s death on GH…can’t watch those scenes without losing it.

What a nostalgic look. Michael Storm, aka Larry Wolek was so good in the role. Dr. Wolek was SUCH a great character; just the essence of goodness. Michael Storm is going on 80! Wow!

Looking forward to Joe Lando. Wonder if they’ll expand his role; he’s leading man material. Maybe for Taylor??? Unless he winds up sentencing her down the road for shooting Bill.

I love Joe Lando, nice choice! Please give him a permanent role and you would gain lots of viewers!

I am thrilled to have Joe Lando join B&B! Loved him as Jake years ago and even followed him to Dr Quinn and The Secret Circle. It would be great to have him longer than recurring. He’s been gone way too long!

Love Joe Lando and remember his stint on GL but liked him best as Sully on Dr. Quinn. He won’t look the same without his big knife and pony tail. Can just see him slamming his knife down, instead of the gavel.

I didn’t watch Dr. Quinn… but I LOVED his long hair on OLTL. But, ya know, time marches on… Sigh.

Hi, Violet! 😉

If you never watched Dr Quinn, you really missed out on an epic series! All episodes are on YouTube, start from the beginning, ‘The Pilot’, you’ll be hooked instantly. There is an entire DQ universe waiting for you!! LOL!!

Hahah; thanks fandq. I’ll try and check the show out one day but I’m binge-ing too many shows to keep up with now! Have to pace myself and squeeze them in between “life.” 😉 (But I’ll keep it in mind.)

Fantastic to see Joe back. Good thinking B&B couldn’t have picked anyone better.

B&B is indeed lucky to have signed Joe Lando on! I would love see his role develop into something more permanent,!

I think it is the other way around: Joe is lucky to have gotten some work… In some article he recently said he had auditioned a lot, never getting any role. He prayed to god and B&B offered him the role of the judge Craig M in that soap. I think it will greatly depend on Joe’s acting qualities how long they are going to keep him…

Is this one of those castings that get us excited but then let down as it is but a glorified cameo? I mean, there really is no more room if we genuinely want to continue the endless (!!!) and now derivative wedding carousel ride of Liam, Steffy and Hope.

Not to mention the uselessness of the scenes where all Zoe and Emma o is smirk at each other and instigate useless fights with each other. And Thorne needs to keep his big mouth shut and mind his own business. Granted, Bill will never win a father of the year award, but Thorne has no right to talk to a lawyer or anyone for that matter about any of this. And on a side note, I say bring on more of Sally and Wyatt. I know he is a bit of a goof, but I think him and Sally are a good fit

Broadway Legend Carol Channing Dies At 97; B&B Remembers Her Time On The Soap

The beloved and iconic star Carol Channing has passed away at age 97.  Best known for her performance as Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly, the Tony Award-winning actress also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and was nominated for an Academy Award for it as well, throughout her enduring career.

Reports on Tuesday detail that Channing died at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.

While Channing did so much in her illustrious career, she also appeared as herself back in 1993 on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  That’s when the Forresters staged a celebrity-filled fashion show with plenty of glitz.

In a tweet with a photo of B&B’s enduring star, John McCook (Eric Forrester) pictured with Channing, the daytime drama shared: “All of us at mourn the loss of our friend, the legendary star, . She was a true original and there will never be anyone like her. Ms. Channing appeared as herself on B&B in 1993. May she rest in peace.”

Channing’s performance as a diamond-loving showgirl, Lorelei Lee, in the Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes back in 1949 made her a star.  Marilyn Monroe would play the role in the film adaptation.

Later in her TV career, she appeared on numerous shows including: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Love Boat, Touched by an Angel and several game shows, to name just a few.

David Canary’s Daughter Raises Question If Repeated Head Traumas From His Football Past Contributed To AMC Star’s Condition Before His Death

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative brain disease that is now widely known to be the outcome of repeated head traumas, concussions and more for many NFL athletes, Pro Wrestlers, hockey players and more   It has caused mental illness, severe behavioral changes and more in younger athletes to even old-timers, many who suffer unaware what is happening to them. Some athletes who have committed suicide have been later to have been diagnosed with CTE when their brains were donated to research.

Kate Canary, the daughter of All My Children’s beloved and late, David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), is a contributing writer to the New York Daily News, and she wrote a heartfelt, and thought-provoking article, on just what happened to this icon, who died in 2015 at the age of 77  with his formal diagnosis being Alzheimer’s disease.

However, David’s earlier football past as a high school and college football player could very well been the reason why he suffered so many years before, and as Kate related here in these excerpts: “But this diagnosis came after years of suffering with Dad’s cognitive decline, and arguably decades of signs. Without exposing the most excruciating details of a disease that could extinguish the most vibrant of men, I can confess that his case was anything but typical.  We lost him in fits and starts, over and over, for roughly seven years leading up to his final breath. Begrudgingly, we learned to lie to him — ‘entering his world,’ as my brother Chris so delicately deemed it — to skirt the contradictory truths that would trigger his outbursts, which left physical scars on objects, on himself, and on others. We knew many families who had faced Alzheimer’s, yet we were the only ones uttering the comparison ‘Jekyll and Hyde.  Those closest to Dad witnessed firsthand the erratic, delusional and at times explosive episodes that characterized his particular case, which we tried attributing to an overactive imagination in a broken brain. But as more information emerges about CTE and the nature of its symptoms — the violent mood swings, the lapses in judgment, the hours-long hallucinations, the paranoid delusions — we are left with more questions than answers, more regret than relief.”

Kate goes on to state the facts that David Canary suffered at least four major concussions as a lineman in his high school and college football playing days between the ages of 16 and 22, (she also relates that those are the ones he remembered).  She also notes the multi-Daytime Emmy winning star has experienced cognitive difficulties decades before his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and that there was no genetic lineage that the family knew of that would you would often find with Alzheimer’s patients.  She also noted that David’s volatility was unusual for a patient suffering from this disease, which leads us all back to CTE.

In the end a loving daughter asks the questions, “Did football kill my father?”  Kate was on the verge of looking into a way to donate David’s brain to science, but sadly he passed away eight weeks later in November of 2015.

The upshot is that when mothers and fathers allow their kids to play football or other-related sports at an early age were concussions are a possibly or involved, think again, you could be changing the course of their lives forever.

So, what did you think of what Kate shared about David Canary’s mental health and condition?  It would seem CTE could have been the root cause of what befell this giant of a man in the daytime soap world. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
