One Life to Live’s newest cast member, Terri Conn, formerly known as Terri Colombino, formerly known as Katie from ATWT, is excited about her Llanview debut… so much so that the talented young actress released this statement!

Terri: “I was watching the show on November 15th and it really hit me how fortunate I am to be on this AMAZING show!!!  It is classic soap…secrets revealed (Rex’s parents), romance (James and Starr on Starr Beach), comedy (Kelly’s drunk dialing), and family (the fabulous Cramer girls, the Buchanan’s, etc) and it LOOKS like a movie!  Everyone is so sweet and they are total pros. I’m having so much fun with my character. I just keep getting more and more excited every day!  Thank you Frank Valentini and ABC for giving me a shot!!!”

You can watch Terri’s debut in the role of Aubrey Wentworth on Monday, November 29th on ABC Daytime.

OLTL is beginning too truly have some interesting plot twists developing. i do hope that sooner than later that Rex’s true dad Clint will be revealed to all and then let the games begin for all the spoils of the Buchanan fortune. Terri Conn glad shes working but i am still furious that ATWT is not on the air.

I think Terri is doing an ok job….. So far. Tom D on the other hand is so mis-casted for this role, his bland, boring,and young. Terri 35 and Tom 29… Big age differance and no chemistry…..Its just a pity it shows… Aubery second day and she was stripped down! Oltl should really write a book on how not write a couple. Aubery and Joey are a disaster waiting. They should really recast the Joey role, with an older actor. Have to wonder if secretly Jean Passinate did have a hand at helping with the re casting the role of Joey. The rest of the actor’s who were in the running for joey buchanan were the cream of the crop, really experience actor’s from Dool, gh…… So on.

Final Season of ‘EastSiders’ Starring Kit Williamson and Van Hansis Gets Premiere Date on Netflix

The fourth and final season of the much heralded LGBTQ series, EastSiders now has a premiere date of December 1st on Netflix, and fans of the show will see how things will play out for the Silver Lake duo of Cal  and Thom, who have gone through quite a lot in their relationship over the last three seasons.

EastSiders stars series creator, Kit Williamson (Cal) along with As the World Turns favorite, Van Hansis (Thom).  The last six-episodes that comprise season four will tackle questions such as… what does commitment really look like in a long-term relationship? And what unique challenges does a “gay marriage” present?

In story, Cal and Thom are back home in Los Angeles following season three’s cross-country road trip.  The guys are still trying to figure out if they are just best friends with benefits, or more, or less, than that.

Elsewhere, Douglas (Willam Belli) and Quincy (Stephen Guarino) are engaged to be married, but with very different ideas about what a gay wedding should be. Hillary (Brianna Brown) and Ian (John Halbach) are cohabiting peacefully; and Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon) and Derrick (Leith M. Burke) have taken a huge step in their relationship by fostering a child.

Deadline broke the news of the premiere date and the many special guest stars from primetime and more to look forward to this season.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
