OLTL Tapes Its Final Episode on ABC! Stars take to Twitter and Facebook to Share their Thoughts!

Such a sad day today throughout the soap world, as One Life to Live taped its final episode for ABC after 43 years!

With its future all of a sudden seemingly in question over the last few days, due to the constant rumors and reports that Prospect Park may not have all their funding, and not a studio in place to shoot the new episodes, the cast and crew soldiered on and shot the final moments of what we know of the beloved town of Llanview for network television!  There have also been reports that OLTL is definitely moving forward and will be just slightly delayed from its originally scheduled and proposed January launch.   Prospect Park has yet to issue any new formal statement letting the public know an update on the One Life to Live 2.0 situation.

Throughout the last 24 hours many of the stars of the series took to Facebook or Twitter to share their thoughts on wrapping up their final scenes or moments at the studio!   Here is just a sampling below:

Melissa Archer tweeted:  “I just want to take a moment to thank all of you. Your support means so much. 10 wonderful years!! When one door closes another opens…”

Kristen Alderson tweeted:  “I want to thank all of our AMAZING/LOYAL fans for being so extremely supportive through all of the years& for today!”

Hillary B. Smith tweeted over the last few days: My emotions are over flowing!!! This is getting really sad. It’s our last few days of taping on ABC. We will be together again!! I m here 4 my last tape day on OLTL for ABC. Last night we were told that we must remove all of our belongings from the dressing rooms. I have all this fan memorabilia, pictures of me with the Bo and Nora Fans, jello shot girls, animals, cast mates, presents from fans. How I love you all, you crazy people!!! You have kept me sane. Is it possible for insanity to bring clarity? Thank you for 20 years of YOU. All I ask is that you watch us to the end. There is really good stuff. And then you can turn your sets off or turn the channel.

Eddie Alderson tweeted: “That was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through. So upsetting :'( every new beginning comes from another beginnings end.”

Robin Strasser tweeted: “My heart feels this IS Black-est Friday. My mind-confused by rumors about Prospect Park. My spirit is proud of being part of OLTL’s history.”

Kassie DePaiva posted on Facebook:  “This has been a sad day. I’m truly grateful for this awesome journey. I’ve had an amazing time in Llanview….and really hate to see it end. But it was great and my life is better because of the lives that have touched mine. Thank you OLTL/Blair fans for 18 years of goodness. It’s because of you that it has lasted this long. Until we meet again… Xoxo”

David A. Gregory posted on Facebook:  “Heading to the studio for the last day of OLTL. Thank you all so much for your support; it means the world. I was only supposed to be around a few episodes and you turned it into a few years. Thank you guys!”

Mark Lawson posted yesterday on Facebook:  “Studying for Brody’s last scenes for ABC. I can’t believe it’s here. The last three and a half years have flown by. I’ve learned so much and am so thankful for all the people I’ve been privileged to work with. Above all, I’m overwhelmed by the support of the fans. Your love of the show, of Brody, and of me as an actor have made this ride worth it. Thank you.”

On-Air On-Soaps still hopes we are going to awake from a bad Bobby Ewing-esque dream, and One Life was never really canceled!

I feel bad for OLTL (and AMC) fans. This transition to Prospect Park is not as smooth as my favorite soap Passions’ move to DirecTV.

So much for OLTL remaining at ABC studios to launch online with Prospect Park since the cast was told to remove all of their belongings from the dressing rooms. Who knows if and where OLTL will start again. Very sad.

How sad for the actors and crew. All of us fans are there with them in spirit and are just as upset. But thankfully we still have 2 months left on TV to watch.
Really hope the PP deal goes through soon and smoothly.

Thank you OLTL for 25 years of memories. I just wish PP would release some kind of statement. Its so sad to mean that the end is coming near and possibly no future at all online.

I want to be positive, but something isn’t right about PP. They still haven’t resolved the AFTRA union issues so how can they start production on December 5 as rumoured? Also, not saying that OLTL is dead, but having everyone move their stuff out of their dressing rooms – yet supposedly the ABC studios were being rented temporarily for the online project? Also, how exactly is this being financed? That has never been answered. Finally, why would credible actors like Susan Lucci and Vincent Izzary make up that they are in the dark. Lucci hasn’t heard a response to her… Read more »

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
