One Life to Live’s Josh Kelly (Cutter) has landed a new gig! The talented and sexy actor will co-star in a new television pilot for Lifetime, the same cabler that brought us Devious Maids!

According to Deadline.com just a bit ago, “Josh is set to co-star opposite Shiri Appleby in Lifetime’s drama pilot Unreal inspired by Sarah Gertrude Shapiro’s award-winning independent short Sequin Raze. Marti Noxon and Shapiro wrote Unreal, which goes behind the scenes of a hit competition dating show to follow the experiences of Rachel (Appleby), a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with (and among) the contestants to heighten the drama. Kelly, will play Jeremy, a cameraman on the  dating show who also is Rachel’s ex-boyfriend. He previously did an arc on Lifetime’s Army Wives and just wrapped Universal’s Recon.”

So what do you think if Josh’s new role?  Would you like to see it go to series so we see more of Josh?  Comment below!

Does this mean he’s leaving “One Live to Live”?

yeah… just what I was thinking… have the OLTL actors been told to go get another job?

This means one life to live will not be back. it will be cancelled.

If there is a God, he will never be back to bore us with his nightmarishly bad acting.

I never really cared for him either.

Can you blame him if he did leave…OLTL…imo…isnt coming back but even if it does what actor would want to wait for something that isnt confirmed when there are other acting opportunities out there…i hope the show comes back and all the actors return but if not ill continue to support some of the others still with us!

Jim, my sentiments exactly!!!! Just recently, I discussed this with my husband, and said, that while I would be sad to see any of the actors leave OLTL, I would not blame anyone involved with the show if they went and found other work, because the bottom line is, everyone has to do what is best for them, and not working is rarely ever good for anyone. I hope OLTL comes back (fingers crossed), because I truly do enjoy the show, and whether it does or not, I wish all of the actors, and all of those behind the scenes, much good luck.

The PP contracts have a clause that allows the actors to pursue other offers/projects.
Guess they just will have to double task .. (do both ..

Those contracts were only 1 year long and they are expiring soon. I doubt OLTL will be back. They haven’t even started production on AMC and according to “reliable sources,” that was to have started last month. The whole thing is just pathetic.

Good for him. He needs to work until OLTL comes back.

If OLTL doesn’t com back, I’d be happy to see him in something else. I DO want him on OLTL, (and I want the show back on the air pronto) but an actor’s got to go where the work is. I wish him all the best.

I don’t blame him for pursuing other avenues of the entertainment field. It would be nice if One Life to Live would return but with prospect part at the helm of the ship I too would make sure I had a Life Preserver on.
His role on OLTL isn’t terribly demanding, I think he’s fine in the role but it could easily be filled by a competent actor. This is assuming of course that the show even comes back, I think we are all hopeful that it will….

Josh seems like a great guy; very responsive with his fans on social media…so I wish him the best. We have no way of knowing if OLTL will be coming back and this might turn out to be a great opportunity for him. If OLTL does come back, and/or this Lifetime series gets picked up…I personally would like to see him on both…if it’s doable. Good luck Josh!

He can do both..
PP contracts allows them to pursue other projects while under contract with them..
How they work it out is not my business or problem LOL but they can also do other things/projects while with PP ..
I think he will be doing both .. 🙂

Same here… I enjoy him on OLTL, but understand he has to make a living, and who knows whether OLTL will return.

Wish him all the best, and just hope to see him somewhere soon.

I think we have seen the last of “One Live to Live”! I hope I am proven wrong.

Marti Noxon producing? Thats one step removed from Joss Whedon. Josh working with a Joss disciple? Swoon.

OLTL is gone for good. Time to move on. The actors know that. Now its time for the fans, myself included, to accept it.

He was never a favorite of mine at all on OLTL.. Didn’t care for his character…Couldn’t be trusted and was a bit of a low life. Sneaky..

Barbara t loves One life to live

Hes not a favorite of mine either, Hated him with Natalie, I agree with you Susan he was and is a low life.

good for him , ABC/PP pissing contest had destroyed any hope of OLTL to return all they wanted was AMC anyway

christy

you know, if OLTL is gone for good, what is the point of the lawsuit, except to kiss your money goodbye! I mean what does it matter if a character died (off screen on GH, which we all know means they could always turn up alive!), cuz PP wasn’t using them and if OLTL is gone for good, PP won’t be using them…. so it seems moot.

Ted Olson

With Prospect Park not issuing any statements, keeping everything completely shrouded in dark mystery, not communicating at all with fans, I am so sorry to say I too am doubtful that either OLTL or AMC will even be back. Not one actor from AMC has tweeted or released any comment about receiving a new script for a show that was supposedly set to go back “into production” for October 21st. I sincerely and honestly
hope that my feelings are wrong.

‘Bachelor’ Creator Mike Fleiss Slapped With Restraining Order After Allegedly Attacking Wife; Demanding She Have An Abortion

In what is now become sadly its own soap opera, the creator of ‘The Bachelor” franchise, Mike Fleiss and his wife, Laura are in the middle of a media frenzy this week after reports surfaced on Wednesday that Laura filed a restraining order against him following an argument and altercation allegedly over Fleiss demanding she have an abortion, as she is presently pregnant with his second child.

As more information came to light Mike had filed for divorce last week earlier after five years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents. It was listed their separation date was on July 7.  In addition, Mike requested joint legal and physical custody of their young son, Benjamin,

Shortly after the divorce filing, Laura who is a former Miss America from Wisconsin (Laura Kaeppeler), winning the crown in 2012, then filed an emergency domestic violence restraining order on Mike. In her claim, she says he physically attacked her and “demanded” she get an abortion. This allegedly went down over the July 4th weekend,  Court documents state that Laura is ten weeks pregnant at this time.

In addition, Laura alleges that Fleiss informed her: ‘If you have an abortion, then we can just go back to the way we were.’”  She went on to say: “Prior to July 4th, Mike threatened me that if I did not have an abortion, he would end the marriage.  This was not the first time he had threatened a divorce during our marriage, but now, he was using this threat as leverage to force me to have an abortion. In addition, on July 4th, Mike made the following statements to me: ‘I am cutting you off financially Monday morning’; ‘You are paying for everything with your money’; ‘Next time I see you, I don’t want to see your stomach’; and ‘You have a choice, you can choose. Have an abortion or go back to Wisconsin, but you are not taking Ben.’”

Fleiss defended himself in the documents obtained by The Blast: “I have not hurt, attacked, or attempted to physically harm Laura or our child, Benjamin Fleiss ‘Ben,’ in any way., Laura was the aggressor during the incident and physically attacked me. I tried to get away from her as she was chasing me and hitting me. I have security footage from our home that shows the incident, which the Court can review.”

He also added that: “After the incident, Laura was initially remorseful. I was leaving Hawaii for work commitments in Los Angeles. I spent time with Ben at the house in Hawaii prior to leaving for Los Angeles. A few days after the incident, Laura stopped all communication with me. “I don’t know where Ben is and I want custody of him because of Laura’s instability.”

On Thursday, Radar Online released text messages provided by Fleiss to the courts from his estranged wife.

Meanwhile, Warner Brothers, the company behind the “Bachelor” franchise said of the incident and the status of Fleiss with this series: We are aware of these serious allegations, and are looking into them.”

So, do you think Fleiss should be, or will be asked to step away from ‘The Bachelor’ franchise in lieu of this domestic dispute and violence issue? Comment below.

General Hospital

With Talk Of Nikolas On GH, Tyler Christopher Says: “I’ve Always Said I Would Never Close That Door From My Side”

On recent episodes of ABC’s General Hospital, a few of the key characters in the life of the “late” Nikolas Cassadine spoke about him including: his on-screen mother, Laura (Genie Francis), his ex, Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig), and a woman who would have been poised to be a new love interest, Ava (Maura West).

So with the name-drops and mentions in recent weeks, could the character who was shot by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and fell out a glass window on a balcony, be making a return soon and be very much alive?

Soap fans tweeted at the actor most known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine (in which he won a Daytime Emmy for his performance), and former Days of our Lives star, Tyler Christopher, to see what his thoughts were on what could be happening on General Hospital with the character.

Tyler made this statement to his Twitter followers: “You are all very sweet to be so loyaI as you always are. I know they are talking about Nikolas as of late. I’ve always said I would never close that door from my side. I just want to thank you all for always rooting for me and the character. I grew up with him as many of u have.”

For over 20 years, Christopher had played the role of the dark prince of the Cassadines.  When he went on leave from the series in 2016, he was replaced by Nick Stabile, who was Nikolas at the time of the character’s supposed death.

Later, Tyler debut on Days of our Lives and took on the role of the newly created character of Stefan O DiMera.  He was also nominated earlier this year for a Daytime Emmy for Lead Actor for his performance in that role.

Longtime fans of GH have also been active on social media hoping that somehow GH could find a way to bring back both Tyler, as well as his on-screen TV brother, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) so Laura could also have her sons back on the canvas.

So, do you think GH is about to bring Nikolas back?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
