Today, both Brett Claywell and Scott Evans (Kyle and Fish, One Life to Live) decided to  respond differently to the rumors that it was one actor’s partying and the other’s busy schedule that led to them being let go, Claywell told Soap Opera Digest, “It’s so false it’s slander. Scott and I were nothing but professional and completely 100 percent dedicated to our work.”

Evans tweeted his disdain for the situation, “Such a bummer what all of this is turning into. I will continue to respect the decision but will remain unhappy with the tactics.”

The saga continues!

Evans’s tweet’s really unclassy since he’s trashing his former employer by passive aggressively commenting on this so called “tactic”. Evans uttered that the Daytime audience may not watch primetime tv? What the hell? And he even uttered that the Daytime audience may not know what’s happening in modern times. Huh? That’s how he regards the daytime audience, which is comprised of his Kish fans. And these same people will be rallying for him and for Kish. Tsk.

Evan’s former employer deserves to be trashed. OLTL is the only soap that I am still watching, but I won’t be watching it anymore after Kish is gone. Thirs was the only great story left on OLTL. The other stories are either just bearable or totally ridiculous (Allison and Mitch). Evan’s employers should be ashamed of themselves for keeping such garbage on the show and getting rid of the best story they had. Scott and Brett were the couple with the most chemistry on the show (besides Bo and Nora).

Brett and Scott are a class act and have every right to defend themselves against false allegations. of misconduct….one only needs to watch their performances to see how committed they were to telling the kyle and Oliver story and they should be very proud of the excellent job they did…..

The Kyle and Fish story is my favourite on OLTL by far. Brett and Scott bring so much sincerity to the story, it is so wonderful to watch them. I started watching OLTL when my daughters were little (back when Todd raped Marty). I think this has been my favourite story and they are definately my favourite characters. I find so many of the stories completely ridiculous(ex. Jessica’s loss of memory, everything about Mitch Lawrence and Allison Perkins, fed up with Stacy,Schyler and Rex) that I tape the show and fastforward to the parts I think are worth watching (ex.… Read more »

The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances, it’s always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk. Tom has set a powerful stage, and I’m excited to continue the legacy and put on my executive producer and hosting hats.”

Karey Burke, president, ABC Entertainment shared: “Tom has been an integral part of the ABC family for nearly two decades, from hosting AFV to Dancing with the Stars – we are grateful for all he and Erin have done to make Dancing a success.  As we gear up for the show’s 29th season, we can’t wait to welcome Tyra Banks to our Dancing stage.

Her fresh take on America’s favorite dancing competition will surely bring more than a ‘Smize’ to fans everywhere.”

Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews Exit ‘Dancing with the Stars’

The ballroom dance-competition will look quite different when season 29 of Dancing with the Stars makes its return on ABC.

Longtime host of the series Tom Bergeron (he has been with the show since 2005) and sidekick and co-host Erin Andrews are not returning to the series.  Andrews joined as co-host in 2014 and was a previous contestant.

On Monday, Bergeron got ahead of the news addressing his departure on his Twitter account sharing: “Just informed @DancingABC will be continuing without me. It’s been an incredible 15 year run and the most unexpected gift of my career. I’m grateful for that and for the lifelong friendships made. That said, now what am I supposed to do with all of these glitter masks?”

On Tuesday, Andrews  put out a statement sharing:  “Thank you ABC and the entire Dancing with the Stars family for 6 memorable seasons.  Those years wouldn’t have been as special without my loving host Tom Bergeron, the talented dancers, and witty judges. I will always cherish my days on that set, even if I wasn’t the best at walking in heels.”

In a joint statement from ABC and producer BBC Studios, they thanked the duo: “Tom Bergeron will forever be part of the Dancing with the Stars family. As we embark on a new creative direction, he departs the show with our sincerest thanks and gratitude for his trademark wit and charm that helped make this show a success. Erin will also not be returning, and we appreciate all that she brought to the ballroom. Fans have been rooting for her since she originally competed as a contestant back in 2010, and her signature sense of humor has become a hallmark of the show.”

Just how the dance-reality competition series will look comes this fall in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic remains to be seen.
