Soapside: says Goodbye Kish & video of the last scenes!



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 OLTL is on its way down the drain so that contract won’t be worth a hill of beans in the near future.

I am still amazed that OLTL let so many super talented individuals go, and ended up keeping the two worst characters on the show! Something just doesn’t add up here in my opinion. And since ABC and OLTL keep changing their stories every other day, I guess we will never know the truth.

GO KISH! When Kish comes back, then I’ll be back. In the meantime, GOOD-BYE to OLTL and GOOD-BYE to the ABC network!

You tell it Jardo. You are speaking gospel I think.

haha my thoughts EXACTLY!

kyle, oliver and sierra rose comes back to lianview and contuine raise sierra rose then they have family and see friends and their job. good luck in meantime bring kyle oliver and his daugther sierra rose with them good luck dont take forever to come back on screen on oltl

I watch the Kish story for internet (youtube) and i loved!! i´m from Perú and i think that americans was more tolerant… i was wrong… they should have a better end not like that… love you guys and don´t worry anyway you left your mark!! (sorry for my english).

New Details Emerge in Fatal Shooting of General Hospital’s Johnny Wactor; Was Protecting Female Co-Worker From Armed Car Thieves

The brother of Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin) has come forward with some new information on the act of violence that took the life of the General Hospital favorite on Saturday May 25th in the wee hours of the morning in downtown Los Angeles.

As valiant as man as Johnny was to all those who know and loved him, he was through and through that man till the very end. According to Grant Wactor, Johnny actually shielded a female co-worker at the time of the crime before he was fatally shot.  Three men were trying to steal Wactor’s catalytic converter from his vehicle, one of which fired the shot that killed the former GH star.

According to a new report from the Daily Mail, Wactor was leaving his side job as a bartender at a downtown LA rooftop bar with a female colleague at around 3:25am when he saw the three men near his vehicle at West Pico Boulevard and South Hope Street.

Believing he was being towed, he approached the men to try to discuss it. One of the men then looked up and pointed a gun at Wactor, who put his body in front of his female co-worker as he was shot. Police say, the three men were all wearing masks, and then fled the scene in another car.  The suspects currently remain at-large.

Grant commented on his brother’s last act of bravery, “We’re Southern, born and raised, and we would never let a female walk to their car by herself.” He added that Johnny, “Thought his truck was being towed. So he said something to the guys, like, ‘Hey, are you towing?’ And then once he turned around, he saw what was happening and he put his coworker behind him. And that’s when they shot him.

Sadly, Grant revealed, Johnny was shot in the chest, and that Johnny and his co-worker had to park about two blocks from the restaurant, so they were walking to their cars after they finished their shift when the incident unfolded.

Grant shared that he hopes justice will be served and the men are caught, “I hope they are able to track the people who did this. I am glad in a way that this is getting the publicity so that it could shed some light that things need to change, or find ways so that no one else has to experience this – whether it be a murder or being at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

In what has already been horrific that we lost Johnny to a senseless act of gun violence over an attempted theft, learning that the actor died right after protecting somebody else, only reinforces the kind of man Wactor was to all those who knew and loved him.

Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) – My heart is so utterly broken… Johnny was the absolute best. So genuine. So caring. Incredibly hard working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy. He always made sure everyone around him felt seen, heard and loved. I admire the man he was so much and I’m a better person for having known him. We shared so many special moments, both on and off screen, and I will forever cherish them deeply in my heart. You will be so incredibly missed Johnny… I’m sure you’re already busy taking care of everyone up there.”

Maurice Benard (Sonny): “What can I say about something so senseless? Johnny was the sweetest guy coolest dude and just a great soul. This is beyond words you will be missed my friend.”

Chad Duell (Michael): “Some POS scum taking the life of someone who’s making something of themselves, and an amazing person. So disgusting and infuriating. Don’t know what else to say.. just so wrong.”

Jon Lindstrom (Kevin): “When the tears slow down, I am literally sick to my stomach at this news. Johnny was one of those rare young men in this business who was kind, unassuming, humble, and always thought about other people. A talented young guy who just wanted to share that talent with the world. I wish I had enough love to fill the hole that his loved ones must feel right now, but I know that’s impossible. Johnny will be missed on this plane. For a long time to come. R.I.P.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis): “An absolutely inconceivable, enraging & senseless tragedy. Johnny was a lovely man. Condolences to his family & friends. May they find eventual peace & may his memory be a blessing.”

Kirsten Storms (Maxie): “I’m in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don’t typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there. To Johnny’s mother and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Johnny was one of those rare “real individuals” that you almost never come across. I was fortunate enough to have some really good conversations with him where we discussed things I don’t typically open up about. For some reason, we talked about the deep stuff. He was a safe space for those conversations and, in turn, he would talk about his life. He genuinely cared about people and their journeys in life. During his time on GH I witnessed him work hard and truly have respect for every single person in our building. I just cannot believe that his life was stolen from him the way it was. My heart hurts. RIP Johnny”

Bonnie Burroughs (ex-Gladys): “I am heartbroken and sickened by this terrible loss. Johnny I love you. My heart breaks for your real mom and your whole family. The world is darker now.”

Ashton Arbab (ex-Dev): “Absolutely heartbroken while typing this. Johnny Wactor was not only my tv dad for more than 25 episodes on General Hospital but he was a great human, a kind soul, an inspiration and a one of a kind actor. May your soul rest in peace. Heaven gained an Angel.”

Perry Chen (Brad): Johnny Wactor was a beautiful, beautiful soul. So talented. As you can see from the promo clip, always up for anything. Funny as all heck. Fit as all hell but also loved ice cream and ate all the junk I did as well. We all were cheated of many years with him.

Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt):  “Johnny Wactor, you were one of the good ones. I’m so sorry this happened to you. RIP”

William deVry (ex-Julian): “Honestly, words can’t begin 2 express the sadness with which 2 convey my feelings towards losing another GH Alum. The senselessness of this lose is beyond description.

Lydia Look (Selina): “Johnny, I’m crying and will be for a bit. I knew you were talented when you simply just took your shirt off when the rest of us were trying to outdo each other with our skits. I also knew there & then that you were fine as wine 😻 I also saw how you’d let others take the spotlight whilst confident & loving in your own space. Most of all, I learnt what a magnificent human you were in our long car rides between fan events. I will cherish our chats. Thank you.”

The official General Hospital social media accounts on X and Instagram shared: “The entire General Hospital family is heartbroken to hear of Johnny Wactor’s untimely passing.
