The soap world was heartbroken when we learned of the passing of Andrea Evans.  Sadly, the popular actress lost her battle with cancer last month on July 9th.

While Andrea had a enduring career in the soaps with roles on One Life to Live, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, Passions and The Bay, she is most remembered for her performances as the iconic Llanview vixen and troublemaker, Tina Lord.

To pay tribute, and to honor their friend and former One Life to Live co-star, Erika Slezak (ex-Viki), John Loprieno (ex-Cord), Fiona Hutchison (ex-Gabrielle), Robert S. Woods (ex-Bo), and special guests, will join Michael Fairman for a very special livestream to celebrate Andrea’s life and career.

Andrea was truly amazing. Would love to hear about the experience filming the Eterna storyline.

I was wondering if Erika could share memories of Andrea’s first appearances on OLTL. Also, if you can talk about Tina’s first storylines and how her character came about and grew & changed over the years.
Even though other actresses stepped into the role, Andrea Evans was the absolute best to portray Tina.

She was certainly a vixen and sassy gal. Loved to watch her in action !

I grew up watching her on the Y&R and One Life to Life. She was one of my favorites. Amazing. She will be missed but I thank her for all the amazing memories. ❤️

Andrea Evans was a very special person and did an outstanding jobs playing Tina. I’ll definitely be here for the tribute.

I loved Tina she was a great actress ❤️

I was absolutely heartbroken to hear the news about Andrea Evans I have been a fan since 1979 that might show my age/lol
My dear condolences to her family …
You will be missed Tina lord roberts

Tina Lord was my all time favorite “bad girl” soap character. There was not a more perfect actress to cast in the role than the marvelous Andrea Evans! Even though she did lots of shady things in Llanview, Tina was EVERYTHING! My favorite storyline of Tina’s was when Cord’s mother Maria, played by the fabulous Barbara Luna, came to town! I loved watching Andrea and Barbara go after each other! Rest In Peace beautiful Andrea and thanks for all the joy you brought to the world!

My favorite on OLTL. We couldn’t wait to see what she was up to next. And even tho she did some not nice things . .
You had to route for her! How she will be missed.

Dude I had such a huge crush on Andrea Evans.

Bro so did I growing up I would have done anything for a date lmao

Popular sentiment.

I just loved Andrea’s hair and clothes…I would love to know where they got her clothes on One Life to live and how they styled her hair.

loved her scenes with John LoPrieno.

They worked well together.

I loved Andrea, I don’t think she ever had a bad scene. Even when (Tina) was doing something wrong you could help but root for her. My favorite scene was when Tina came running in with what she would claim was Cord’s baby. She came in told Cord here’s our son gave him the baby and passed out. I didn’t like the pairing of who they were trying to push us s hard to except but Cord always belonged with Tina. That was my favorite couple.

That was one of my all time favorites. I loved her

I loved Andrea’s acting ability, she was s great performer! Can you show some of her work from when she was on Passions !

Love Tina lord

Loved Andrea on OLTL. The more Tina got in trouble, the more I rooted for her. And I loved Tina with Cord. One favorite storyline was Tina surviving the Igwazu Falls. I was sad when Andrea felt the need to step out of the spotlight for a while and was happy when she came back. She was a great actress and will be missed. Rest in Peace, Andrea.

Was there any thought that Tina and Cord were sort of an homage to Lucy and Ricky Ricardo of ‘I L over Lucy? Questionable redhead with Latino husband who gets involved in whacky schemes.

Hmm – Lucy never did confess that Little Ricky was Fred & Ethel’s son.

The fight scene between Tina and Maria with the poison tube

I remember her when I was a kid and thought she was so Beautiful ❤️

Luv me some Vicki on 1 life 2 live when she was married 2clint Buchanan’ n when was playing a twin…rip my dear!!!

Ron Carlivati Reveals When Days of our Lives Episodes From His Head Writing Regime Resume Streaming

Days of our Lives viewers have not been watching material from head writer Ron Carlivati and his writing team for many months. Well, things are about to change.

Circle this Friday, May 31st when the first new script from Carlivati and company will stream on the Peacock soap opera. If you recall, Carlivati had to step away from the writing gig at DAYS due to the writer’s strike, but because the soap tapes at least seven months ahead of air, it is only now that fans will see how the stories shift or finish out that were started by Carlivati.

According to Ron’s conversation with TV Insider, when Carlivati and his team resumed writing the show in late October of 2023, the stories were already written well into 2024. Carlivati explained, “For me, as of us talking right now, the (replacement writers’ material) is still airing, so that has been very tough. I’m just very anxious and eager for our stuff to start airing again.”

Ron explained before the writer’s strike, he and his scribes had written up through the 2023 Thanksgiving episodes. Speaking on how the replacement writers tried to handle stepping in for the regular team, Ron expressed, “I think what they tried to do was move things slowly in the hopes that the strike would end and respect where my storylines were so that I could play them off when we came back. Unfortunately, the strike dragged on, so I understand that the show needed to make story decisions.”

The award-winning writer made clear that, “from January to May (2024), those were not my stories. I had nothing to do with those.”

Having lived through a writer’s strike before (when he was at One Life to Live in 2008), Carlivati explained how he dealt with coming back and adjusting the stories including that the plan was to, “blow things up, jettison anything that I did not like, and get back to a show that I understand and can enjoy and tell. ”

Look for a Carlivati-style ‘wink-wink’ on Friday’s episode. As he puts it, “I did want to make it clear that this was the line of demarcation, that the writers were back and there was a change happening. We have a little nod or two to what was going on in the first day and I think it will be very obvious and clear to the savvy viewer. Luckily, story-wise, certain things were coming to a head already.”

Stay tuned for how Ron resolves a Sloan and Nicole showdown, how Eric will find out he is Jude’s true baby daddy, what happens when the new Gabi returns from Salem from out of the slammer, the Maggie/Konstantin wedding, payback time for Theresa and more.

In addition, and as previously reported, when Carlivati returned, he crafted the series 15,000th episode which is set to air in early December, and will also pay tribute to the late Bill Hayes with the passing of his on-screen beloved character, Doug Williams.

So, glad to know Ron and his team’s material will start to reveal itself this Friday and moving forward on DAYS? Comment below.
