It has been a heavy last 24 hours for soapers who followed, for over a year, the love story of Oliver and Kyle on One Life to Live, as it came to it’s abrupt ending on yesterday’s air show.   

For a review of the events, and commentary leading up to the end of Kish, check out Michael Fairman’s new Soapside: The Advocate’s Guide to Daytime. You can post a comment there on your thoughts on the LGBT news site, as well as here.

On-Air On-Soaps was completely moved by watching Kish get custody of Sierra Rose. Seeing the threesome together after so many trials and tribulations, and Gigi deciding she would not contest custody of the little one was a watershed five hankie moment!   Watch the video of the last scenes of Kish from the custody hearing after the jump.

There ya go!

Proof that ABC is not homophobic.

They let kish have sex and raise a baby.

Ugly Betty let Justin and the Zac Efron clone kiss repeatedly. They let Marck St. James kiss his bfs and even showed him in the sack shirtless w/ his clingy bf.]

Modern Family has the excellent Eric Stonestreet portray flamboyant, scene stealing Cam, who is raising a baby w/ Mitchell.

Bravo ABC!

We don’t actually see them raise the baby. That’s why everyone is mad.

Personally, I think it has to more to do with 3 gay male couples (OLTL’s Kish, Modern Family and Brothers and Sisters) on ABC potentially raising a baby. With the firing of Kish, only 2. OLTL Kish isn’t bring in the money like prime time shows do, so they are out. They do not want to become the gay men with babies network.

I stopped watch OLTL on Tuesday. The only storyline worth watching has ended. I wanted so much more of the story…

I do not know how to express my feelings… hurt? angry? sad???…
I will not watch OLTL after Kyle’s last scene this Friday. I want to say thank you to Brett/Scott for all the wonderful times you gave me. I will miss you both!

I am done with OLTL and the entire ABC network. They make me SICK after seeing how Brett and Scott were treated, as well as Scott Clifton. And it was all for the sake of Rigi! GMAFB! Farah Fath and JPV are the two WORST actors in daytime! They obviously have their noses up someone’s a**, because anyone with any common sense would realize how horrible they are and would have dumped them a long time ago! All the wonderful characters that are now GONE from the show were all used to “prop” FIFI-LA-PEW and DAFFY DUCK! No one will ever convince me that FF and JPL haven’t had a lot to do with what has happened at OLTL with all these firings because everyone that has been fired recently were all involved in storylines with RIGI. Now they are all GONE! Even the Kish baby storyline ended up being “all about Gigi” and Kish was only seen about 5 times in over two months time in what was supposed to be THEIR storyline. I even think the “snarl” on JPL’s face in Kish’s last scene (above) at the courthouse even speaks for itself. (And I actually used to like JPL until FF came into his life and totally ruined him). Supposedly, there was an actor that was very upset because Scott Evans was getting so much publicity when Kish became so popular on the show. He was being asked for interviews, magazine covers, etc. However, he was being asked to do those photoshoots and magazine covers because of his “activist” role as a gay actor, NOT because of his Kish storyline. He was even given a humanitarian award for his involvement in trying to help other gay individuals. If I had to, I bet I could “guess” which actor was jealous of Mr. Evans. What I don’t understand is, WHY? He is a quality person who helps others and contributes a lot of his personal time doing so. That being said, Kish also brought several awards to OLTL this past year, something obviously Mr. Valentini and Mr. Frons have totally forgotten about. It’s too bad both of them didn’t just “stay out of it” and let Ron Carlivati write for Kish the way he originally started out doing. Had this happened, Kish would be daytime’s new SUPERCOUPLE, something OLTL desperately needed. Instead, they have decided to push RIGI down people’s throats (the two worst actors on the show). FF currently has an 85% disapproval rating. I would LOVE for someone to tell me why in the hell she is still on the show. Even Crystal Hunt’s Stacy wasn’t that bad, and she was SUPPOSED to be a hated character. FV keeps trying to make FF look like Mother Teresa, but I got news for him. It ain’t gonna happen! Very few people like her at all, and very few people like JPL either, yet he was just given a multi-year contract. Well, it won’t make much difference anyway, because… Read more »

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.”

RATINGS: Days of our Lives Has Strong Week

The ratings are out for the week of September 2nd through the 6th and it was NBC’s Days of our Lives that was the only daytime drama series to gain in total viewers and households.

That week featured the debut of One Life to Live icon, Robin Strasser in her debut on DAYS as Vivian Alamain replacing Louise Sorel.

DAYS topped General Hospital for the week moving into third place adding +82,000 total viewers, while GH hit a new low losing – 143,000 viewers, as well, the CBS Daytime series of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful also lost total viewers … -189,000 and -120,000 for the ratings period.

In addition, DAYS was up +.04 in households week-to-week.   However. the show year-to-year that has continued in recent weeks to lose viewers is The Young and the Restless who from this time last year lost -453,000 viewers.

In the key demos: Y&R remained at #1 in 18-49, 18-34 and 25-54 in total viewers, but in the ratings share it tied with B&B in the 18-34 category.  Over the past few weeks, B&B has also been in the top demo slots trading off with Y&R.

With the fall season upon us and summer coming to a close, perhaps many soap viewers will be checking back in to see what is happening in the towns of Genoa City, Port Charles, Los Angeles, and Salem.
