On-Air On-Soaps has named Robert S. Woods and Jerry verDorn’s performance on this past Thursday’s episode of One Life to Live this week’s Power Performance of the Week! As Buchanan brothers, Bo and Clint, Woods and VerDorn’s long awaited showdown did not disappoint, in fact, it exceeded our expectations!

Finally, Clint fesses up in his bitter vitriol that he did indeed set up Bo and Nora’s marriage to unravel and pulled the strings with Inez to get her to be part of his payback for Nora leaving him for brother Bo, and the humiliation he suffered because of it. VerDorn played it to perfection.

But it was Robert Woods, quiet, powerful, understated performance as betrayed brother Bo, that pulled at our heartstrings, when all the pieces come together for the police commissioner as he holds his older brother at gunpoint.  And, as the scene unraveled in yet another powerful moment, Bo tells Clint due to Clint’s part in his plot against them, he almost got Nora raped by Eddie Ford!

What made the scenes even more stellar for long time fans of the Buchanan family and One Life to Live were the references to Asa, and that Clint has now sunk lower than Asa ever did! The icing on the cake was at the end of the showdown when Bo picked up Asa’s hat and told Clint he doesn’t deserve to call himself a Buchanan.

Brilliant writing, brilliant performances, and the best part – we don’t have to live through Bo and Nora being duped any longer! Kudos to Robert S. Woods and Jerry verDorn for delivering to us classic soap opera! Check out the video clip below of Woods and VerDorn in this week’s Power Performance of the Week!

I agree, 100%. They were strong. Jerry, IMO, is at the top of his game. He is doing some of his best work since his front burning days on GL.

That was such an amazing performance. Loved every minute of it. Classic soap – brother vs brother betrayal. And the fact that it used seasoned veterans, pulling in show history.

I’d actually also pull in Jerry verDorn’s lead up conversation before that with Echo DeSavoy (Kim Zimmer) because the two of them knocked it out of the park as well. So hard to choose. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE “One Life to Live’s” use of veteran performances.

Robert and Jerry hit ever beat in the show down between Bo and Clint. Jerry played Clint with guilt over what Eddie almost did to Nora to pleasure that at this time nobody has true proof to what all Clint has doner. Robert played Bo with angry over what Clint had Inez do to Bo and Nora to more angry to what he’s doing to Matthew to rage with Clint being the one behind Nora’s kidnapping by Eddie and Nora’s almost rape by Eddie at thanks to Clint to Bo coming down from his angry and rage when Nora told… Read more »

I’m glad the show down has begun. I love Robert Woods acting. He underplays everything perfectly. Jerry and he play off each other so well. But, It’s only the beginng of things to come. We have a long way to go to unravel the deceit that Clint has perpetrated on his family What’s with denying Rex as his son? And telling Matthew that his father cheated on his mother, Nora? And having his assistant change the DNA report of Natalie and Jessica’s babies. So much mayhem, but it is not over. Yeah!…

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman Pays Tribute to the Brilliance of Lisa Brown

On Sunday, longtime Guiding Light mainstay, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis), shared a heartfelt message on his Facebook page on the death of his former co-star, Lisa Brown (Ex-Nola Reardon).

As previously reported, Brown passed away earlier this week at the age of 67 from cancer. She portrayed the beloved role of Nola on the CBS soap opera from 1980-1985 and was front and center in many stories which featured Nola’s antics, fantasies, and of course, her love affair with Quint, the late Michael Tylo.

In his message on Brown’s death, Robert Newman expressed: “I was greatly saddened to hear of the sudden death of the great Lisa Brown. When I first joined the show in 1981, Lisa was pretty much the center of everything. A real whirlwind. Her work with the late Michael Tylo was fantastic. I particularly have fond memories of Nola’s fantasies …Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, etc. I don’t think I was ever a part of those fantasies, but I remember watching them being taped in the studio and she was just amazing.”

Newman goes on to say: “One of my fondest Lisa memories, however, was sitting in the audience at the Winter Garden Theater in NYC watching Lisa head up the cast of 42nd Street with Lee Roy Reams in 1981 or so. It was one of those times when you see a colleague that you know from one genre, Daytime Drama, in an entirely different genre, Musical Comedy, and you are completely surprised and blown away. Again, she was just fantastic in the role and I as a fellow musical comedy performer, I had great, great respect for her. Below is a clip from a television performance of her as Peggy in 42nd Street. Her death at such a young age is a great loss to the daytime community. Love and prayers to her family and friends.”

Michael Fairman TV also shares below the video posted by Robert below, which reminds us of just how multi-talented Lisa was for her fans, the audience, and to all that knew her. On a personal note: “Lisa always performed at the ‘Night of the Daytime Stars’ benefit for AMFAR in New York City during the AIDS pandemic that I created and produced.  It was the annual event held the night before the Daytime Emmys, and she was always willing to lend her support and talents to help others in need.”

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.
