Just as they did with All My Children, ABC’s morning talkfest, The View will say goodbye to One Life to Live with a special one hour episode the day of the final episode.

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 »

The young actress has also been seen on on ABC’s Kevin (Probably) Saves the World.

Not only is Thompson an actress, but a freshmen at USC.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
