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 »

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
