On last night’s very special edition of TOLN Soaps Live with Michael Fairman, titled “Llanviewpalooza”, the Blog Talk Radio series celebrated this week’s 45th anniversary of One Life to Live with very special guests: Jerry verDorn (Clint),  Melissa Archer (Natalie), Kassie DePaiva (Blair) and Andrew Trischitta (Jack)!

During the episode, the fantastic foursome fielded calls and also revealed…  how they each got cast in their roles, their favorite storyline of all-time, and who has the most bloopers of the group? Plus, who kept kissing their co-star long after they yelled “Cut!”, and who said their last episode was “steamy”? And a question was asked a few times of Melissa Archer … who does she prefer Natalie with  … Cutter? Or, John? Find out her answer!

Jerry verDorn teased on the broadcast that Clint’s huge upcoming umbrella story is about to set Llanview on its ear and really shake up the show in upcoming episodes when he related:  “I can’t talk about it too much because I just shot it! It’s one of those storylines I like because it involves the whole town!  Old people,, new people, young people, and it involves every storyline, and one event starts to cascade storylines over the top, and down the hill, and where audiences wants it to go.  It kind of make the whole town go a little bit nutty!”

Kassie DePaiva heaped huge praise on Jerry for the upcoming story stating to the listeners, “You guys have got some great stuff to look forward to because he knocks it out of the park!”  VerDorn also weighed in on the current on-screen status of Viki and Clint, and how it translates to any woman, which he tossed to Kassie and Melissa for their opinion saying, “As a woman if I said to you, ‘I would like to give you five millions dollars, a couple diamonds, and take you out to dinner, wouldn’t you go out with me!?'”

In addition to the chat, and the fans calls, Michael Fairman  revealed his number one pick for his favorite OLTL storyline/ moment of all-time.

Glad to we’re getting a big Clint story, Jerry ver Dorn is freakin’ fantastic. And hey, if Clint’s turning a bit back towards the dark side, let’s get his Kimmie back to town!

Sorry, the actress who plays Kim is on Robin Williams’ new fall sitcom. I saw her in the previews.

Well whatever it is let’s hope it’s more compelling than Matthew dating a gal who turns out to be a maid – and let’s wish for it to be something well written instead of never ending inane scenes at SHELTER – in other words, tell the writers to get moving. The actors are doing the best that they can, with the rather mediocre scripts that have been presented thus far.

The writers are doing very well.. The Shelter is the social gathering action place of llanview, it is working well, it is modern and how clubs are these days 🙂 Matthew’s story is much more than dating a maid lol and the story is jut developing, I would like more action hope it will come.. Older people have never related with the 20ish generation, but the younger viewers do, and they are needed. what has happened is; the prudes who complained about the reality to life sometimes cussing and hotter sex and high drama stories and now the absence of… Read more »

I totally disagree with you – Shelter SUCKS!! I hate it, I’ve been watching OLTL for 35 yrs. Unlike you I’m not a part of the “now generation” – I love watching on the internet but the fact that Shelter is terrible has nothing to do with new media sources and younger viewers. It’s the actors and storyline that bring in the “now generation” and keeps the old viewers not a crappy set.

I love this man! I feel sorry for all of those “One Life to Live” fans that missed the work he did on “Guiding Light” as Ross Marler. There’s a reason he won those two Emmy awards in the 1990’s (pure talent!).

Hopefully we will be seeing less of the under-25 year old crowd on this show and more of the characteers (like Clint!) that we love.

There will ALWAYS be an under-25 crowd! The ‘next’ generation comes from somewhere. ..

My favorite moment was in the courtroom when Jenny’s sister admitted she was a hooker, that Marco was her pimp and that they set up Vickie. So great. (I forgot the character’s name). I also loved – in the beginning when it turned our that Carla was black and the cleaning woman was her mother.

I have watched since the beginning, it was one of my favorite shows so I’m thrilled we have it back on Hulu and Own! Keep on keeping on.

That was Karen Wolek played by Judith Light.
I loved the Carla/Clara storyline!

That would have been Karen Woleck (played by Judith Light) housewife by day, hooker by night and married to Dr. Larry Woleck. Loved that arc, that’s when OLTL hooked me.

Where is Jessica and why is she not being mentioned? The twin thing was so important to the show. I love Jack and Sam interacting too. Siblings stories are written so well.

OWN channel is on Canadian T.V. but does not show OLTL or AMC. How can we change this?

Ask everyone to call in and request the soaps..
If they see people have interest and will watch the network/soaps they just might give add the soaps..

Actually, you need to contact the FTC….they won’t allow OWN Canada to show any scripted series.

Michael, thanks more than I can say for these broadcasts. You’ve done so much to keep the spotlight on this show -and AMC – when the chips were down, and now you’re in the forefront of keeping us entertained and informed.
Your site, in my humble opinion is the best – and without doubt the classiest and the smartest, and it just gets better with every interview, every spotlight you put on the show. We fans, and the cast & crews of the shows owe you.

Thanks, guy!

Kassie DePavia’s first greeting to Jerry verDorn was very appropriate. This is “the A-Team.” I have always felt the OLTL has the strongest actors anywhere. And young actors just starting in the business learn and grow from working with these amazing veterans. Congratulations my beloved OLTL on 45 years of terrific storytelling. As always, I can’t wait to see what’s coming next.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
