Well, if you watched yesterday’s, One Life to Live, long time fans of Bo and Nora got their wish, when Nora after hemming and hawing finally agreed to marry the man of her dreams, Bo Buchanan.  And that means, soapers, it looks like an on-air wedding could be slated for June!  Over the past week Hillary B. Smith (Nora) and Bob Woods (Bo) have been delivering heartfelt performances that remind us why the couple is just that “darn” good.

And since its the start of a new week, that means another item is up for bids in Hillary B. Smith’s online auction for the Willee-Coppee Fund. The W-C fund is a joint charitable endeavor between Hillary, her bff television writer and multiple-best-selling author Lindsay Harrison.  The fund serves to discreetly assist pet owners who may be struggling with overwhelming veterinary bills. Endowments that assist pet owners are incredibly important in today’s challenged economy, as countless individuals are unable to provide routine care and medically necessary services for man’s best friend. And for those in the know, for years the legendary soap battle between Nora Buchanan and Lindsay Rappaport was front and center stage on the show.  Catherine Hickland’s, Lindsay had such great chemistry with Hillary’s, Nora…to bitter rivals.   So now read the item below to take home a piece of  Llanview history!

Item up for bids for the W-C Fund: Yideo tape, with a bonus DVD copy, from the personal collection of Hillary B. Smith, unprofessionally but earnestly homemade by a friend of hers – Hillary’s scenes and only Hillary’s scenes from One Life to Live. It’s imperfect and a true vintage tape, which is to say it hasn’t improved in quality as the years have gone on. But Hillary personally screened it before offering it for sale and assures you that it’s thoroughly watchable and a real treasure for Nora/Lindsay/One Life to Live fans. This is a one-of-a-kind item. We’ve made no other copies to list again in the future, and the tape and DVD will arrive with a handwritten note from Hillary to help guarantee their authenticity. Again, if you’re a fan of Hillary Smith and Catherine Hickland, and/or of One Life to Live, you’ll enjoy every minute of this video tape and/or DVD. We’ve skipped ahead a few years from the previous tapes we’ve listed to bring you this historic period in Bo and Nora’s relationship, from 10/98 – 2/99: the cabana (in which Sam “helps” Nora by theoretically impregnating her); Lindsay happily exposing Nora’s secret at the Woman of the Year Award; and Bo serving Nora with divorce papers.

Soap Opera Digest revealed the fill-in casting news in their latest issue on newsstands now.

No intel on what GH airdates Schmidt will be replacing Wactor in, but they should be coming up very shortly.
