What does this have to do with OLTL? When I look here I would like to see news about OLTL. Not CC or TP or anything else. I’m so not interested in all this filler, I don’t care one bit about TP or CC or most of these articles. How about some news about PP and the lawsuit?

It’s time to put the RIP back on OLTL & AMC and call it a day. ]-(

Tika Sumpter and Peter Parros are both OLTL alumni. Eva Temargo was on Passions…. Parros was also on ATWT and Y&R. You cannot dictate was stories Fairman runs on his own website.

Please, this show can’t hold a candle to OLTL. I want to support Oprah and Tyler but this is just a awful show…imo. I wish Oprah would had invested into OLTL and even AMC. At least there was some substance and quality to it. IMO….ratings are good and are a reflection of how desperate people are for drama/soap shows… Please do better than this.

I thoroughly enjoyed this week’s episode of The Haves and the Have Nots, it was excellent. I’m a OLTL fan, but that is irrelevant, the show did not replace OLTL.

I wanted to like this show, I really did! I even set my DVR to record the series when it first came on. But after watching the first episode, I deleted it off the DVR and never watched again.
THE SHOW IS HORRIBLE, AWFUL, TERRIBLE, EMBARRASSING!
I’m shocked it’s still on the air, and trust me it wouldn’t be, if it was on mainstream network!

He is totally awesome writer. Love it.

‘Bachelor’ Creator Mike Fleiss Slapped With Restraining Order After Allegedly Attacking Wife; Demanding She Have An Abortion

In what is now become sadly its own soap opera, the creator of ‘The Bachelor” franchise, Mike Fleiss and his wife, Laura are in the middle of a media frenzy this week after reports surfaced on Wednesday that Laura filed a restraining order against him following an argument and altercation allegedly over Fleiss demanding she have an abortion, as she is presently pregnant with his second child.

As more information came to light Mike had filed for divorce last week earlier after five years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents. It was listed their separation date was on July 7.  In addition, Mike requested joint legal and physical custody of their young son, Benjamin,

Shortly after the divorce filing, Laura who is a former Miss America from Wisconsin (Laura Kaeppeler), winning the crown in 2012, then filed an emergency domestic violence restraining order on Mike. In her claim, she says he physically attacked her and “demanded” she get an abortion. This allegedly went down over the July 4th weekend,  Court documents state that Laura is ten weeks pregnant at this time.

In addition, Laura alleges that Fleiss informed her: ‘If you have an abortion, then we can just go back to the way we were.’”  She went on to say: “Prior to July 4th, Mike threatened me that if I did not have an abortion, he would end the marriage.  This was not the first time he had threatened a divorce during our marriage, but now, he was using this threat as leverage to force me to have an abortion. In addition, on July 4th, Mike made the following statements to me: ‘I am cutting you off financially Monday morning’; ‘You are paying for everything with your money’; ‘Next time I see you, I don’t want to see your stomach’; and ‘You have a choice, you can choose. Have an abortion or go back to Wisconsin, but you are not taking Ben.’”

Fleiss defended himself in the documents obtained by The Blast: “I have not hurt, attacked, or attempted to physically harm Laura or our child, Benjamin Fleiss ‘Ben,’ in any way., Laura was the aggressor during the incident and physically attacked me. I tried to get away from her as she was chasing me and hitting me. I have security footage from our home that shows the incident, which the Court can review.”

He also added that: “After the incident, Laura was initially remorseful. I was leaving Hawaii for work commitments in Los Angeles. I spent time with Ben at the house in Hawaii prior to leaving for Los Angeles. A few days after the incident, Laura stopped all communication with me. “I don’t know where Ben is and I want custody of him because of Laura’s instability.”

On Thursday, Radar Online released text messages provided by Fleiss to the courts from his estranged wife.

Meanwhile, Warner Brothers, the company behind the “Bachelor” franchise said of the incident and the status of Fleiss with this series: We are aware of these serious allegations, and are looking into them.”

So, do you think Fleiss should be, or will be asked to step away from ‘The Bachelor’ franchise in lieu of this domestic dispute and violence issue? Comment below.

General Hospital

With Talk Of Nikolas On GH, Tyler Christopher Says: “I’ve Always Said I Would Never Close That Door From My Side”

On recent episodes of ABC’s General Hospital, a few of the key characters in the life of the “late” Nikolas Cassadine spoke about him including: his on-screen mother, Laura (Genie Francis), his ex, Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig), and a woman who would have been poised to be a new love interest, Ava (Maura West).

So with the name-drops and mentions in recent weeks, could the character who was shot by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and fell out a glass window on a balcony, be making a return soon and be very much alive?

Soap fans tweeted at the actor most known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine (in which he won a Daytime Emmy for his performance), and former Days of our Lives star, Tyler Christopher, to see what his thoughts were on what could be happening on General Hospital with the character.

Tyler made this statement to his Twitter followers: “You are all very sweet to be so loyaI as you always are. I know they are talking about Nikolas as of late. I’ve always said I would never close that door from my side. I just want to thank you all for always rooting for me and the character. I grew up with him as many of u have.”

For over 20 years, Christopher had played the role of the dark prince of the Cassadines.  When he went on leave from the series in 2016, he was replaced by Nick Stabile, who was Nikolas at the time of the character’s supposed death.

Later, Tyler debut on Days of our Lives and took on the role of the newly created character of Stefan O DiMera.  He was also nominated earlier this year for a Daytime Emmy for Lead Actor for his performance in that role.

Longtime fans of GH have also been active on social media hoping that somehow GH could find a way to bring back both Tyler, as well as his on-screen TV brother, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) so Laura could also have her sons back on the canvas.

So, do you think GH is about to bring Nikolas back?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
