Maybe OLTL wants to have RC back and GH could get a new head writer
or our great old writers, who gave us all our great love story couples and
fantastic story lines…..

I wish Ron Carlivati could write OLTL and GH. The writers chosen for the AMC and OLTL revivals don’t give me a lot of hope for the shows’ success…

Ron is doing a fantastic job with GH – he is preserving the history of the show. Even Tony Geary, Jane Elliot and Kin Shriner have given him and Frank props for saving GH. He isn’t going anywhere let alone to OLTL.

Seems very strange that Susie B Horgan would leave soap already. Maybe she really does have a very personal reason – something to do with her family and home life and nothing to do with OLTL????? On the other hand, maybe she didn’t get along with head writer!!!!!! Another mystery in the life of Soaps!!!!!!

She is Erika Slezak’s friend & I hope things are ok. Erika liked her writing so I hope it doesn’t hurt Viki. I hope Susie will be happy wherever she goes.

maybe susan decided this will not work at all. i have wrote many many times here. i did say that one life to live will be a big hit. i hope i am right. lets pray everyone and hopefully everyone will watch one life to live. this is the last chance everyone. if know one watches it will be cancelled. we need sexy foxy roxy back on one life to live. producers call ilene now. i dont care if she is on contract or recuring. just get her back on our soap. roxy was funny and always made me laugh.

Makes me wonder if she really is leaving for personal reasons, or was it backstage conflict: maybe different opinions of how the storyline should go? Who knows? Hopefully there isnt more problems ahead!

I’m inclined to think along these lines.

Perhaps Prospect Park wanted her stories to be racier or politically-toned in nature?

I loved her writing for “One Life to Live” around 1995 and 1996. She wrote some of the best material for Blair, Todd and Marty. THIS REALLY SUCKS!

I missed a lot of good stuff from what ive read what the story was then…i had a lot going on in my life at that time i rarely could watch so i understand if she left for personal reasons but everyone has problems at some point in their life and rarely leave their job…you could be right about them wanting her stories be racier and politically toned in nature, and id leave too if that was the case…i like good old fashioned romance, family drama and mystery in character driven storylines. But i guess a lot of people seem… Read more »

Sounds like there are issues already with this relaunch. Good thing the three actors will be on GH!

Leaving for personal reasons can mean anything from a sickness in the family to I can’t stand my boss to my boss can’t stand me. Whatever the low down I am sure they are so invested in this project that her departure will not derail anything. I wish her well and hope whatever cause her to resign isn’t too serious.

All the actors at OLTL seem to be happy, and that tells me there is some good storytelling going on. I hate to see a good storyteller go! I hope they get someone in there who understands the core of the characters and what makes them tick (aka their history and moods). Side note: FV and RC did a good job under ABC but they need to STAY w/ ABC and let us have back the OLTL that we fell in love with.

I had heard that there has been some conflict as to how much screen time/stories the veteran characters are getting vs the “newbies” and Susie was not happy with being told to go in that direction. Hope that’s not going to be the case.

I can see this being the case.

Which means, we probably will only see Vicki, Clint and Dorian once a week. Pretty much as often as we saw Renee and Nigel when the show was on ABC.

From the brief conversation I was able to have with her outside the studio when we held a welcome back rally…I doubt it had anything to do with problems inside the studio or with OLTL. I don’t know anything for sure, just my own feeling. I believe it is completely personal.
THE SHOW IS FINE AND WILL BE FINE!
Best wishes Susan.

I agree. I dont remember where I read it, but I felt she had some other project she was working on that had not taken off yet. I think she had took this opportunity until that project began. It probably happened sooner then what she thought.

I am sure she had a hand in getting OLTL running, and is left in good hands.

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

‘Passions’ Alum Gerardo Celasco Cast in ABC Drama Pilot ‘National Parks’

Gerardo Celasco, formerly known to soap fans as Adrian Bellani (Ex-Miquel, Passions), has been cast as one of the lead roles in a new drama on tap and in the works for ABC.

The series called National Parks, follows a small group of elite national parks service agents as they solve crimes while protecting the parks — which, while being known for their sweeping, beautiful landscapes, also attract a vast array of criminal activity.

According to Deadline, Celasco will take on the role of Lincoln Kane, a fearless ISB Special Agent who is haunted by his past and carries the world on his shoulders. Lincoln’s commitment is never in question as he finds his own way to go above and beyond the call.

The actor will also appear in the Swimming with Sharks drama series reboot, and was previously seen on How to Get Away with Murder, Next, and the film Moneyball.

Celasco played Miquel Lopez-Fitzgerald on the the now defunct NBC soap classic, Passions from 2000-2007.
