OLTL's Crystal Hunt exit… is it bye-bye Stacy Morasco or not?

Crystal HuntTwo reports have surfaced and confirmed that indeed Crystal Hunt has been let-go by ABC and One Life to Live, in her much maligned role as Stacy Morasco.  The character and actress who was given so much air time and thrust into major story immediately upon arriving on the Llanview canvas, made soap fans and soap pundits quite infuriated.

However, more news today from Soap Opera Digest, who spoke with a OLTL spokesperson who had this to say about the Crystal/Stacy situation! “Crystal Hunt will be in major story in the coming months as the story of Stacy and her baby builds to a climax. As far as rumors that she is leaving the show, we do not comment on rumors.”

But perhaps that statement serves to say that the end of the line for Stacy is near?  Earlier This morning, Nelson Branco confirmed in his TV Guide Canada, Soapgeist column, what New York Daily News Carolyn Hinsey already leaked on her facebook page.   Hinsey stated,  “Hearing Crystal Hunt was fired from One Life.” Soapgeist confirmed Hunt was let go late last week!

Crystal Hunt was delicious as Stacy and a memorable character. OLTL producers are making a mistake letting her go; she was the only interesting character on the show and with her “passing”, I doubt that I will stay as in tune as I have.

Crystal Hunt was my most favorite actresses on daytime tv. Though I did not like her character, she played Stacy well as the epitome of selfishness. I just died laughing with most of her one liners, like when she said to Jessica, in contrast to the Maury Povich show “You are not my baby’s momma”

PLEASE BRING HER BACK ON THE SHOW!
THE SHOW IS REALLY BORING WITHOUT HER!

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.
