One Life to Live’s Trevor St. John (Todd) spoke with Soap Opera Digest over the weekend at his fan club event with Florencia Lozano (Tea). St John commented on the return of Roger Howarth to the series, which may “Un-Todd” St. John!  TSJ  stated, “I’m not familiar with his work so I can’t tell you what he’s like to work with, but I think it’s great for the show. There are all these rumors [about cancellation], so I think it will at least give it a ratings boost. I truly have no idea [what the show is planning], but I can’t imagine anything other than he’s the real Todd, because that would mean if he’s not the real Todd, then there never was a Todd and he was an imposter from the beginning! That’s the only way you can do it. Logically, speaking.”

Stay tuned as only time will tell! Will the real Todd,  please stand up?

I am a huge fan of both TSJ and RH. RH has always been OLTL’s Todd Manning. This whole storyline smell of the RomanJohn brainwashing senario on Days. I hope this is not the way OLTL is going. Been there, Done that. I beg of you, don”t do the PhillipCane senario either. I’d like to see something fresh and new. There is room for both TSJ and RH on OLTL.

Years ago they did a storyline like this over at Days concerning Roman Brady !! Look how well that turned out Roger Howarth quit on his own accord now that he is out of a job he wants to come back. Trevor St. John made the character his own! It is no way to treat this guy.

I’m with you guys… Trevor needs to remain the real Todd!!! i love his work and have fallen in love with him as Todd. i think it would be a disrespect to Trevor’s amazing work as well as the fans to un-do everything Todd has went through with his children, Blair, and Tea by making Trevor’s Todd some sort of impostor. Plus, even though i think Roger Howart is an awesome actor, previously he put too many restrictions in his contract like restricting love scenes because he didn’t want Todd to be a romantic lead which was why Todd and… Read more »

Made the role his own? How did he do that exactly? If he had done a good job and made the role his own, tptb wouldn’t have been trying to get RH back for over 3 years. Romantic scenes have nothing to do with growth or change in a character. TSJ proved that in the years he’s been on the show. Todd and Tea’s relationship while Roger Howarth was there was the most real relationship the show has seen in years. There was growth and change in Todd and Tea both. Just because they never got physical on the show… Read more »

I really agree, I wasn’t a big fan of RH back in the days but TSJ really made the Todd manning character likable even when your suppose to hate him you can’t. He’s become my absolute favorite character on the show. TSJ is Todd Manning Period it should be any other way. RH kept leaving the show on countless occasions despite what the fans wanted to see and finally we got someone to not only take over the role but do far better with the character than the original actor. Not taking anything away from RH but who knows how… Read more »

I agree with everything you had to say. Bring back TSJ and keep him as the real Todd Manning. He plays that part so well like noone else. He’s a natural and brings so much life and edge to OLTL. Please listen to the viewers and bring this man back. My husband even watches the show because of Trevor St. John. That’s really saying something.

I 100% agree Trevor St. John is my absolute favorite man in daytime. He has made Todd what he is, made Todd his very own. I am emotionally involved with the fact that he is Stars, Jack, Sam and Dannies father. There is no emotional involvement with RH. I like him but maybe he can just be TSJ’s clone from a special experiment on cloning people. P’lease don’t take TSJ away.

I agree, Trevor made this character what it is and has been for the past 8 yrs and I think it stinks that they have let him go now over bringing back RH. RH left the show 8 yrs ago and he bad mouthed the character, the show, his story and some of the fans while he was running out the door and now that he lost his job here he comes tail between his legs and the show has the nerve to fire the guy who was loyal to the show all these years who even now after being… Read more »

I wish I could tell Trevor St. John what a fantastic job he did stepping into the role of Todd Manning ! I have watched soaps for 30 plus years and have always had great difficulty when a new actor steps in to replace someone ! It took quite awhile for me to accept them in their new roles ! Not so when it he took on the role of Todd Manning ! Please do not get me wrong ! I loved and still love Roger Howarth, and I am very glad he is back ……. Still, I do wish… Read more »

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.
