OLTL's Florencia Lozano's new play featured in NY Times!

In a fantastic article out in the New York Times earlier this week, One Life to Live’s ” dead”  Tea Delgado, Florencia Lozano is featured in a write-up about her new play underneathmybed , currently playing at the Rattlestick Playwright’s Theatre in New York City. Titled: Soap Suds by Day, Political Drama at Night, the feature discusses the parallels between Florencia’s two worlds, daytime TV and writing and performing for the theatre.

David Van Asselt, artistic director of the Rattlestick, said he was drawn to Lozano’s play about the entwined political and family tumult in underneathmybed, but even more to its extensive use of Spanish, as the parents bicker in their first language and the three daughters argue and agonize in English. The play takes several twists and absurdist turns at times, and Mr. Van Asselt said he worked with Ms. Lozano and the play’s first-time director, the actor Pedro Pascal (“Some Men”), to focus the story on the central character of Daisy.  Ms. Lozano said balancing the fantastical with reality came fairly easily to her, pointing to her work on One Life to Live. Téa, who married the show’s rakish antihero four times, is now officially dead, but her body has mysteriously disappeared, and the first rule of a soap death is that anything can happen.  “I really pushed myself to take risks with my writing, to experiment and try to stay away from conventions,” Ms. Lozano said. “In that sense I think Téa helped me, because she is in a world where the most outrageous surprise is as ordinary as breathing.”

Indeed, none of her fellow soap actors seemed fazed to see her back during a recent visit to the set. Dozens of stylish dresses and pantsuits marked “Téa” remained in the wardrobe department. Asked about her character’s future, Ms. Lozano offered a sly smile and said nothing more. She gossiped breezily with her cast mates, then headed downtown to her play.

Well,I’m sure Ms.Lozano will be back on OLTL in the near fututre in some form or other. We need closure on this story and can’t leave Todd with another failed marriage. Can’t we give him a break.? Also, I commend Ms.Lozano on her creativity and wish her luck with her new play. But, see you soon on OLTL….

Chrishell Stause Has Taken Steps Towards Motherhood

Former soap opera star, Chrishell Stause, who is current appearing on the reality series Selling Sunset and the the new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, shared some personal news with PEOPLE that she hopes to start a family

In the exclusive, Stause shares, “I have taken the steps to freeze my eggs.”  Adding,  “I definitely had a different idea for where I would be at this age and stage in my life.  There’s a family aspect that I’m missing that I hope is still a possibility for me.”

Of course, Stause is still pretty fresh off her shocking marriage break-up in November of 2019 with This is Us star, Justin Hartley.  But because of that she wants to take the pressure off of herself and a potential life partner in terms of a time-frame to bring kids into the world.

Meanwhile, Stause continues to prepare each week for ballroom dance competition on Dancing with the Stars with pro partner, Gleb Savchenko

She admitted that she was actually getting ready to freeze her eggs when she joined the cast for season 29 of DWTS.  “I was in the middle of the process when DWTS approached me. So for the first weeks of rehearsal, I was giving myself daily hormone shots while learning the tango, and the procedure was done a few days before the premiere of the show.”

So, what do you think about Chrishell’s plans to become a mom when she is ready?  Are you rooting her on Dancing with the Stars? Comment below.

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.
