On yesterday’s episode of Hallmark Channel’s  MARIE, host Marie Osmond welcomed One Life to Live favorite Tuc Watkins (David Vickers) to the show to promote the premiere of the returns of all-new episode of the beloved soap opera!

During Tuc’s two segments, Marie posed questions many fans have asked in regards to how the new One Life will be different than than the ABC version, and the how the show no longer has to deal with the standards and practices barrier of the network in their new online platform.  Tuc filled the audience at home and in the audience in.

Additionally, Tuc became a proud new papa to two adorable twin babies born four months ago …  Curtis and Catchen Watkins! Tuc tells Marie how he came to choose the two names for his new little bundles of joy, and how he prepared for their arrival being a gay single dad.

Later Tuc is joined by his delightful sister Courtney Watkins who Tuc says lives 15 minutes away from him, but often calls with baby emergencies and asked her to show up in five minutes! Of course the ever funny Tuc, was being his witty self!  Courtney who is a host on TV’s Disney Family’s The Possibility Show. Tuc’s talented sis,  also runs Creative Adventures which is an enrichment program for grade school children, which was also discussed during the segment.

Watch Tuc’s segments in the first 15 minutes of yesterday’s Marie and let us know what you think of Tuc’s adorable new kids!  Congratulations Tuc from On-Air On-Soaps!

What a fun interview!!! I am now an even bigger Tuc Watkins fan… what a great guy and the twins are adorable! They are very lucky to have such a fun Dad! How brave and great is it for him to have done this on his own. Why someone hasn’t had him on a prime time comedy series is beyond me. I would hate to lose him on OLTL but he’s just to perfect not to have a show… maybe one about a single gay guy with kids? I liked him even more after your hangout with him too Michael…… Read more »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
