I don’t look forward to softball questions, that’s for sure. Goutman has the cancellations of AW & ATWT on his record, even if P&G’s support went south. An EP is caught between owner/network interference and bad writers. He didn’t seem to manage the latter relationship very well.

I wish somebody would put him on the hot seat about the treatment of Eileen Fulton as Lisa on the series finale. What they did to Lisa was beyond awful on the last show?

CMD,
I know I saw the ending but I don’t remember that. Who was he referring to?

I hope he gets legitimate questions. He has a LOT to explain about what happened to ATWT under his helm. I don’t have a very high opinion of his skills as a soap producer. I’ll go to my grave thinking that he and Jean Passanante killed ATWT. The guy has guts to agree to sit for this interview.

It’s not really guts, since Alan worked with him and they probably won’t cover Goutman’s controversies.

I hope not but you are probably right. If the interview is nothing but “puff” talking about how accomplished and talented Goutman was, I’ll be gone in 5 minutes. I watched that site’s interview with Jean Passanante (someone else whose professional skills were suspect due to her ATWT head writing tenure). I was surprised that the questions were tougher than I expected. However, he still let her “get away” with a lot, gushing about some of the plots that I thought were horrible. The interviews really won’t change anything. They hacked away at ATWT for years until its butchered corpse… Read more »

He destroyed ATWT and then wouldn’t let MB come back to close out Lily/Holden story…I hate him.

He also didn’t bring back Martha Bryne as Lilly. She was the only Lilly. The recast was a good actress but no Lilly. The finale of ATWT with Lilly and Holden lacked alot without Martha Byrne in the role. Won’t be listening

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
