As many know yesterday was the first day of production for Prospect Park’s and The Online Network’s rebooted version of One Life to Live.  To celebrate fans from Soap Fans United traveled to One Life’s new Connecticut studios to welcome the cast back and to show their love and support!

Erika Slezak (Viki), Melissa Archer (Natalie), Cordin Bleu (Jeffrey), Kelley Missal (Dani), Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Robert Gorrie (Matthew) and Laura Harrier (Destiny) gave the fans who braved the cold weather some donuts and coffee with some lovin’ care! OLTL head writers, Susie Bedsow Horgan and Thom Racina also said “Hello” to the fans in attendance.

Carrying balloons, roses and banners/signs, to welcome their favorite cast members back that they have wished to see once again so much, but they also met some of the newbies to Llanview too!  The fans were thrilled and some (as we would all be) emotional chatted and took pictures with the actors during their short break from shooting.

Check out this video from the rally after the jump!  Then, let us know what you thought about the show of support from both sides – the fans and the stars!

I am thrilled that OLTL is returning. All fans need to watch and support the online format because if it doesn’t work out, it will truly be the end of Llanview.

We were not even allowed to go to the front door of the building – so tours were out! Trust me, we all would’ve gone! 🙂

Most likely no set tour for now because they dont want fans to know too much at the moment but it could happen later for some of you. I envy how lucky you got to be this close but i did once got to meet in person the lovely Jill Larson from AMC and Micheal Bruno( i think thats his name) who once appeared on the same show. Had they given me a cup of hot cocoa id had them autographed the cup, thats if i had known and brought a marker to write with, or at least saved it.… Read more »

He’s onlyvthere for four weeks then returns to GH. This video is enough to bring tears to my eyes. After spending three decades with these characters, they feel like family and I’ve missed them so much. I just wish we had word on Michael Easton’s fate as well as Kristen Alderson. I have so much respect for these actors and want the best for them.

The whole video was so nice. Thanks to the fans that were able to be out there to express what so many of us feel to the actors of OLTL. And Thank You to the actors who brought out coffee and doughnuts (?) and posed for pictures. It was very sweet of them to take the time to do that.

Now, tell me, what night time show has that kind of interaction between actors and fans? None, I bet. Daytime fans are phenominal!

During all the effort put in by our group (Soap Fans United) and my multiple trips to Stamford to secure permits, etc. (all the Stamford officials were amazingly helpful and congenial) I would never have dared dreamed that we would be received and honored by the cast, writers and production team as we were on 3/18! And the privilege of meeting Erika Slezak…simply beyond belief!

They should try to get Ellen Holly, if she would do it, make guest appearances as Destinys mother/grandmother on OLTL. I Know she played Carla but that was long ago, and it wouldnt be no different than Francescs James returning to AMC as a different character. It would be like a nod to the shows original beginnings.

Does anyone know where I could download the mp3 of Kelley Missal (Dani) “Everything I ever learned”
Omg I’d be so happy if someone could tell me

This is why we love OLTL. The fans just have to be supportive and make ABC see the big mistake they made in taking this show off the air. I really believe this is going to be a hit. Will be watching everyday that it is on. If Michael Easton doesn’t return perhaps John McBain can be re-cast. Just a thought.

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
