TOLN Releases One Life to Live Video Story Recap Featuring Epic Feud Of Viki & Dorian!


One Life to Live fans are in for a real treat because The Online Network (TOLN) has just released this juicy video clip package to get you up to date at where we are in the story since the 43-year-old soap was cancelled by ABC, and it aired it’s final episode and sensational cliffhanger back in January of 2012.

Now, fast forward to April of 2013 and Llanview is back, featuring so many of your beloved favorites when it’s first new episode is revealed on April 29th on, HuluPlus and iTunes!

To get you caught up and ready, six-time Daytime Emmy winner Erika Slezak (Viki) provides the narration and re-introduces us to the people in Viki’s life and her family   It starts with classic clips of the best supercouple on daytime, Viki Banks and her nemeisis, Dorian Cramer Lord (Robin Strasser).  From there, we see Viki’s on- again off -again relationship over the years with Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn), whom when OLTL went off the air, Clint had proposed to Viki!

Then, the excitement picks up from there with the “Tale of the Two Todds”, and how the Todd (Roger Howarth) and Victor Jr. (Trevor St. John) story played out right till the end of the ABC version of the series, where we saw that Victor Jr. was very much alive!  Plus, we learn of Nora (Hillary B. Smith) and Bo’s (Robert S. Woods) relationship, their son Matthew (Then Eddie Alderson, now Robert Gorrie) and Bo’s son, David Vickers (Tuc Watkins)!  In addition, brand new footage from the new One Life is part of the clips!  And oh yes, Viki also tells the story of Natalie (Melissa Archer) and John (Michael Easton) and says they were “star-crossed” lovers!

Watch “The Best of One Life to Live” video story recap below, and let us know if you were as excited to see all these amazing clips?  And, how do you think the story will begin to unfold when One Life resumes in just a few weeks?

    Oh my goodness I am so excited I was excited before but now it’s to the tenth power!!!
    I am very excited to see my show again. I hope this means Victor is back I want to see him reunite wih Dani and Tea and knock Todd the heck out with a right hook! He has so much potential in stories from his crazy love with Tea and his feuding with his beautiful daughter Dani to his great scenes with Roger Howarth to when they explore the history of him/ Victor. I also want to see where Danis story goes now that hates out of the picture she could actually have a good love interest her young love story with Matthew was great but I hope they don’t reunite because with a new actor it won’t be the same and this pretty boy seems like he will suck I won’t mind her being single for a while I really hope they don’t make her and Destiny sluts like it seems they will. I want to see an episode with Todd, Tina, Vicki, and Victor All in it that would be classic. But no matter what they do I will be tuning in April 29th save the date OLTL forever!!!!!

    I am kind of surprised that Prospect Park was allowed to use clips from ABC.
    Michael, Do you know if Soapnet will be able to continue to show OLTL & AMC repeats once the new episodes start?

    • AJ

      April 5, 2013 at 8:47 am

      internet only. Besides, we need to make sure that people can only watch the shows online.. the more hits/downloads.. the better! I encourage everyone to watch each episode a couple of times on different services for more ‘unique’ hits, the fans will decide if this is a success or not, don’t think we’ll get a 3rd life to live.

        PP bought the rights to OLTL- all the RIGHTS!! I believe they have a piece of the pie also.

        April 5, 2013 at 4:48 pm

        The repeats I am talking about are the ones that Soapnet still shows early in the morning. 6AM here on the east coast for OLTL. It appears the episodes are 2 to 3 years old. I fully understand that all of the new episodes will be internet only.

      April 5, 2013 at 7:01 am

      I wouldve loved a feud between brothers Todd(RH) and Victor(TSJ) similar to Viki and Dorian! If only everything couldve worked out btween abc and pp…and if TSJ had returned full time…both OLTL and GH i feel couldve benfit greatly ratingwise with a crossover storyline…but thats old news now and the both shows must go one!

  17. C

    April 5, 2013 at 7:15 am

    I could watch that clip of a pissed off Dorian in a fly hat and her portrait forever. So exciting!

    Love, love, love the recap. I can’t wait till the 29th. Fitting that ES narrated it, she did a wonderful job. Enjoyed watching the last scenes of when OLTL was first cancelled, a colossal mistake it was. Still get choked up when Bob Woods he said I love you to his red…could barely get the words out.

    Yay… 🙂

    Can’t wait for the 29th. Will be watching. So thankful we our soap got another chance, should have never been cancelled. Just hope they re-cast John McBain as he is such an important character in the show. Although we will miss Michael Easton, I am sure in time we can adjust to a new actor.

  31. Edwin

    April 6, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    Really good trailer/recap got me even more hyped then I was for April 29th but it would had been 10 times better had they shown the scene of Victor alive right after they showed John arresting Todd.

  32. susan M.

    Erika Slezak is quite the lady! A real class Act! Can’t wait to see her on OLTL my favorite soap!

DAYS Mary Beth Evans & Stephen Nichols with Guest Ron Carlivati Talk Stayla’s Greatest Hits & Approach To Scripts During COVID-19

To take a stroll down memory lane of reunions past, Mary Beth Evans along with her longtime on-screen scene partner and dear friend, Stephen Nichols, watched back key scenes from the history of Stayla and offered up a second viewing experience as they commented on the clips.

Later, Mary Beth and Stephen are joined by their surprise guest and it is revealed to be Days of our Lives head writer, Ron Carlivati!

In her tweet, Evans announced: “Since we’re evidently leading up to something big on #Days … Stephen Nichols and I thought we’d get together & watch some of our reunions from the past. And, we were lucky enough to have a very special guest join us for a chat! #patchandkaylaforever”

Mary Beth and Stephen then chat with Ron about what changes is he having to make to scripts in the reality we all live in now, the coronavirus pandemic, and how he is taking in to account upcoming safety protocols that will need to be adhered to when Days goes back into production.

As of now, from an article in Deadline last Friday the NBC daytime drama series is aiming for a September 1st restart.

Watch Mary Beth, Stephen and Ron in part one of their discussion below. You can find that and more on Mary Beth’s PlankBlog You Tube channel as well.

B&B’s Denise Richards Reveals Her Husband Aaron Phypers Will Be Stand-In During Ridge Forrester Intimate Scenes

On Tuesday’s edition of CBS Daytime’s The Talk@Home, The Bold and the Beautiful and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Denise Richards (Shauna) appeared on the series.

During her segment, Denise discussed how she felt about B&B being the first American TV show back in production amidst the coronavirus pandemic and if she felt safe returning to work.  Richards also discussed how the love scenes and more intimate moments of the series will be done either with real-life partners standing in for their on-screen love interests, or a blow-up doll.

Denise expressed: “I’m excited to go back to work. I think it’s important for us to also be safe, but to move forward. And Brad Bell [executive producer and head writer, B&B) has implemented a very safe environment, I feel, for all of us, so I think it’s important.”

As to the COVID-19 testing protocols, Richards explained:  “Every week we’re tested. If there are more than two actors, we have mannequins. If there is an intimate scene, they’ve asked us if our significant other can step in for that person. Otherwise, we’ll be doing a love scene with a doll.”

It was then Denise confirmed that her husband, Aaron Phypers, will be stepping in for intimate scenes with love interest Ridge Forrester, played by Thorsten Kaye: “He (Phypers) is standing in. And he came with me today. He had to have his COVID test too, every week the whole cast does. He starts standing in next week.”

Watch what Denise shared on her return to B&B below.

Then let us know what you think of B&B’s love scene or intimate moment protocol in order to get new episodes in the can safely for everyone involved via the comment section.

Who Will Be B&B’s New Love Interest For Steffy Forrester?

The Bold and the Beautiful is back in production, the first soap to do so amidst the coronavirus pandemic, and there has been much speculation and talk for awhile now as to just what the future holds in story for one of its leading stars, Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester).

It appears that instead of re-treading a romance for Steffy with Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) or his son, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), the series is about to bring in some new suitors into Steffy’s romantic life!

According to B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, he has big plans for Jacqui in the months ahead, as he related to TV Insider.

When Bell was asked about the new love interest coming in to the show for Steffy,  he revealed: “We have a great story coming up for Jacqui. Steffy has been committed to her work, her daughter Kelly…but people have been wondering when a new man will enter her life. He’s coming. She’ll have a period of time where, in fact, quite a few men will be after her – as they should be. She’s spectacular and unique. I’m thrilled to say that this next chapter will be very much about Steffy. I always feel comfortable putting drama in the hands of Jacqui Wood.”

In addition, recently on  The Michael Fairman Channel’s recent Daytime-Emmy virtual chat with Wood, Scott Clifton and Heather Tom, the actress also alluded to a potential new love interest for Steffy, too.   You can watch that below.

So, who would you suggest to play opposite Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as her new love interest?  Share your casting thoughts via the comment section.
