Fans have been abuzz today over how they intepreted the sentiments from John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex) of One Life to Live, when he spoke with Soap Opera Digest to offer his sentiments on the ending of One Life to Live.  He has since clarified his original statement by offering this up below this afternoon.

JP’s updated statement:  “The point wasn’t to make anybody mad or anybody happy. The point was for everyone to interpret my comments in any way they want to, at least the last part of the quote. If you’re not happy with my quote, think of it sarcastically. And if you’re happy with my quote, take it literally. It’s a neutral quote that can be taken in either way. But the rest of the quote can be taken literally. Farah Fath, (Gigi) and I are going to L.A. We are going to pound the pavement and I was very blessed to have worked on the final nine years and seven months of a long-running, great show that has a great family. As an actor, it gave me fun stuff to do. The first day that Brian Frons became president of ABC, he could have fired me right off the bat. I spent every day working for ABC under the possibility that Brian could have fired me. So I do thank Brian for not firing me during his reign. I thank him every day that he never made the decision to fire me and I do thank him for bringing on Farah. But everyone needs to understand that you can’t bite the hand that feeds you. There is a lot of world left to live and a lot of jobs to still be had and you never know who’s going to become the president of what. I don’t want to burn future bridges with the professional people who will someday hire me for other jobs.”

Well, I certainly understand The Actors of OLTL, and AMC Taking the High Road. Absolutely, 100% class. It’s up to US, the viewers, to Tell the truth, and do whatever we need to do to , To STOP this insane idea,to cancel these Shows, that are watched by MILLIONS. It’s plain crazy. Money, THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL. And Less money abc has to pay to produce a show, That’s what they will do…Put a CHEAP REALITY PROGRAM ON..it costs peanuts to do so. Why Pay Actors, writers, top dollar, when you can replace them with JERRY SPRINGER type people… Read more »

Don’t be too hard on JPL – Business is business and you never know where you may end up. The decision has been made and we should support AMC & OLTL till the end. Watching today’s episode of OLTL and it is just so sad that this great show will be over in nine months.

I wasn’t slagging him when I asked if it was sarcasm. though it did seem nicer than I’d have expected.

I get it, he’s right he can’t go off the rails at this guy. And as fans yeah were mad but as an actor if he was on primetime, this happens all the time. Things get canceled and you can’t call out powerful men and make an enemy. I wish him luck.

John-Paul, we get it. Frons is the pimp of ABC Daytime and you need to work. The need to work and earn money makes hoes out of most of us, and you are one pretty boy thinking about your future. I feel sorry that people like you have to kiss up to someone like him. I hope you were paid enough to make it worth it.

He SHOULD be thanking Frons for giving FF a job! She caused OLTL to lose tons of fans because nobody can stand her! He acting is a total joke, but then again, so is JPL! Maybe they can become a real life version of Popeye and Olive Oyl (the two characters they remind me of)! They are two of the worst actors I have ever seen, so they should be thanking Frons for giving them jobs, especially when 85% of the viewers were demanding that they be fired (especially in the case of FF)! So many “quality” actors/actresses lost their… Read more »

His acting wasn’t bad UNTIL that dude, Farah, came to the show. Wait, she’s not a dude? My bad. Her acting is horrendous. For personal reasons alone, I’m glad they lost their jobs-they did awful things to people in “real life”. Plus, what’s her freeloading sister going to do now?

He has every reason in the world to be thanking Brian Frons ……… he is Fronsie’s golfing buddy and Fronsie gave him everything he wanted, including a job for his little bimbo, Farah (which he readily admits in his statement)! I saw a lot of wonderful actors/actresses lose their jobs this past year while that sniveling little no-talent biotch FF kept her job. Rumor has it she even complained BIG TIME when Kish got airtime because it was taking time away from her. And Kish hardly ever had ANY airtime!! I will always believe that she and JPL caused some… Read more »

I totally understand every word you are saying John-Paul, and did the first time you said it. Honestly, if I were in your shoes, I would do exactly the same, that is the smart, professional road to take. I wish both you and Farah much success, and any soap would be brighter with both of you on it. I know I will see each of you on another soap again, and will be happy to support you. If it is GH, all the better. As fans, we can take another road, which is to do all we can to show… Read more »

John-Paul, I think you are a butt-kisser sucking up to Brian Frons.

And you may take that literally or sarcastically. Your acting sucks so I really don’t care.

I hope that John does get hire on another soap. I understand where he is coming from. It is hard finding a job these days and I agree with him on that point. Never burn your bridges. I wish him the best and I hope you pop up on Geneal hospital

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
