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).

Glad to see Brett/Scott fight for their professionalism.

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. Kish). Once they are gone, I don’t think there will be anything left worth watching.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
