So circle your calendars on Friday January 13, that just hours before the final airing of  One Life To Live, ABC’s The View will air a special to salute the show’s 43 years on the ABC Television network. Erika Slezak (Viki) will guest host.  OLTL creator/writer Agnes Nixon and the series executive producer Frank Valentini,  are currently scheduled to appear.

The special will feature exclusive, never-before seen footage of the final taping, interviews with special guest stars and returning cast members, surprise appearances, an exclusive sneak peek clip of the last episode and the cast and crew uniting for their final group photograph, as well as special videotaped montages that will showcase some of the show’s most memorable moments.

The View is looking to fill the audience with fans of One Life to Live for their salute episode.  If interested email:TheViewSalutesOLTL@gmail.com.

Sweet!!!!!! So glad they are doing that! I hope OLTL gets as much coverage as AMC did when they were about to go off. At least ABC is doing that, Guiding Light and ATWT did not get but just a 60 Minutes special.

Its too bad that the View couldn’t support the fans who wanted to keep the soaps on the air. Its too little, too late——-won’t be watching. Never watch the View!

Today’s episode of OLTL was funny….Love how Clint made the speech, that was very reminiscent of the speech that Oprah made about not being able to save an institution whose time has come…..when talking about Fraternity Row. Wonder if Oprah feels the same way, being that her network is in the toilet and could use the ratings that would come with airing OLTL on her network.

I wondered this about Oprah as well. Putting soaps on her network would defintely broaden her audience and entice new advertisers, those who supported soaps all these years, to hop on board. Linking social media with the shows (maybe showing live tweets at the bottom of the screen while show is on) should also be explored somehow. Soap fans take their soaps personally and the emotional connection they have with certain characters is something you can’t make up. I can’t think of any shows that do that for viewers – can you? And how much programming does OWN have anyway… Read more »

Remember Oprah’s video statement? OWN executives aren’t particularly bright or imaginative–they are followers, not innovators. Almost all of OWN’s programming is reality shows. They don’t think they can make money on soaps any better than the existing networks. They are apparently unaware OLTL was coming in under budget and making money. OWN would be fortunate to have OLTL, given OWN’s poor ratings and financial loses. OLTL would immediately attract a couple million viewers and OLTL would pay for itself, but OWN isn’t buying it, and I am not buying OWN.

Oprah had already said no to AMC and OLTL in May 2011. Why would she want now?

The time you guys are wasting by trying to revive OLTL (something that will never happen) could be used instead to support the other 4 soaps so that the same thing doesn’t happen to them.

Thanks Heather, but any efforts that I make on behalf of OLTL is not a waste, in my book. Quite frankly, I have tried to watch the four remaining soaps, and I find it hard to make it through the episodes. I have never been a Days fan, so I don’t even bother to watch that. I have been watching the Young & The Restless on and off, for the last year…and the stories have just been incredibly boring or way too far fetched for me to gain any interest. B&B waste every episode with this stupid triangle of Hope/Steffi/Liam… Read more »

I agree with you Torrey. I have spent a lot of time lately comparing the remaining shows & there is just nothing that comes close to being as consistently good as OLTL. It has never gotten the recognition it deserves & I would do anything to keep it going. Every episode has some of everything-mystery, drama, sadness, laughs. I love everyone on the show, even when I start out not liking someone I end up liking them! I watch Y&R & B&B daily but agree with your assessment of them. Days I keep up with & watch fairly often but… Read more »

God Bless The View For Honoring OLTL–Yay! 🙂

I would rather just about anyone honor OLTL than the View. Yuck, this will force me to watch that awful show. Does anyone on that show even GET soaps? They just make fun of everyone & everything & I cannot stand them or the show. Haven’t watch it in years & years. Kelly Ripa would be a much better choice & should have done the tribute to AMC, since she got her start on AMC & met her husband, still has friends from daytime, etc. The View should be cancelled instead of our soaps. Do we want to watch them… Read more »

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
