Jori Petersen, the ABC Daytime VP PR guru told TV Guide Magazine that One Life to Live is not going anywhere contrary to fans getting in more of an uproar when news broke of a possible Tori Spelling talk show, that might shake up the ABC Daytime block of three soaps.  Since One Life had been the show lowest in the ratings, Petersen took time out to calm the fears.  “We want OLTL to succeed and are doing everything we can to facilitate that. We want the show to be fantastic and robust. There are no plans for cancellation.”

Then, Petersen addressed the swirling rumors that OLTL head scribe, Ron Carlivati will be given the heave-ho when his contract expires with the show due to the hiring  of current ATWT scribe, Jean Passanante. “Jean was brought in to help Ron at Ron’s request. There are plans to take the show in a new and different direction, and we have absolute confidence that Ron will make that happen. The network in firmly behind him.”

So what will the new direction be?  Stay tuned.

Finally, we can relax and enjoy the show knowing that all these cancellation rumours are false. Hopefully the new direction will involve a “Kish” return!

If there was a show to enjoy, then I might watch. But after axing Kish and seeing how OLTL and the ABC network treated them, I won’t be watching at all, no matter what they do, unless Kish is brought back again. A steady diet of Rex and Gigi every day is NOT going to keep OLTL on the air. They need to bring back Adrianna for Rex, as Gigi plain and simply SUCKS! She has to be the absolute worst actress on daytime!

I’m not so sure OLTL’s cancellation rumors ARE false either. After all, they will lie, cheat, demean their actors, and slap their fans in the face at the drop of a hat! Look at all the excuses Valentini gave the viewers about the Kish axing, even trying to “trash” their reputations in the process.

Nope, sorry, I don’t believe anything that comes from the ABC network or OLTL, and especially from Valentini and Frons. They ARE the problem with OLTL and ABC Daytime. As soon as the ABC network figures that out, they might be able to resolve their problems. Frons is the one who needs to be axed, and the sooner the better.

In the meantime, if Kish doesn’t return to the show, neither will I. And I was a lifetime viewer of the show and have watched since its first airdate.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”
