Today is certainly turning out to be the fabulous Daytime Emmy Award winning actress, Hillary B. Smith’s day.  First, incredible performances in the season three premiere of Venice the Series and on the Thanksgiving episode of One Life to Live and now getting an opportunity to speak with EW.com about this afternoon’s devastating news that her beloved One Life may not have any more life to live, after Prospect Park abandoned plans to resurrect the show online.

Smith told EW.com, “It was a noble attempt and I believe they really wanted to do this. I’m just sad for the fans. I think this was a very ambitious project for a company with no history of the technology.  I do wish there had been more communication between the company and those who’d signed on. We were finding out a lot in the press.”

As for how this impacts the One Life to Live finale which was shot taken in consideration that the show was continuing online later in January 2012, Smith stated “I can’t say (if it’ll be satisfying enough if there’s no continuation) I don’t know exactly the whole ending.  I want to be able to watch it myself.  I know that they shot a couple of different endings for Bo and I.  I have an idea which they’ll use.  But I don’t know the ending for the show.”

Smith added for fans to hang in there though, “I want them to enjoy this journey.  It’s really going to be fun through the end.  It’d be nice if a knight in shining armor came riding up to save us but even if that doesn’t happen, it will be a fun ride to the end.”

I am so sad about all this it’s not even funny. I was shocked, because even though I wasn’t all that thrilled about the soaps going on the internet I thought it was better then nothing, but now no soaps at all!!! I think that is just awful and I will miss the actors like crazy.

I so hoped that Matthew would wake up and there would be a happy ending.
At the very least they could have done that for the millions of fans out there who are
totally disgusted that they are ending this wonderful show. I love Hillary and Bob together and wish they will be able to team up again in the future. Soaps are on their way out if they keep this up and our whole life as we know it will be changed forever. So many of us need this escape from our lives and taking it away from us will not be
good.

I just cannot beleive it’s all over. What will I do now?
