Ok, this has got to be the funniest thing I have seen in a long time and so apropos!  Who else but a gaggle of daytime soap veterans can make this commentary on a dying soap opera so irreverant and side-splitting funny? No one.  From creators, Scott Bryce ( Ex-Craig, ATWT) and Michael O’Leary (Ex-Rick, GL) Steamboat is their new web soap spoof that is just what the doctor ordered in soaps ailing times. The  duo are touting the series as a mix of The Office and All My Children in the desperate but dying days of a daytime soap opera.

Filled with some of your favorites from GL including Kim Zimmer, Justin Deas, Kurt McKinney, Orlagh Cassidy and Beth Chamberlin, and ATWT’s Michael Park, you must watch the video teaser below. We won’t spoilt the surprise who each of these soap vets plays in the parody!  Enjoy!

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
