Last night, One Life to Live took home the prize for Outstanding Daily Drama Series as recognized by GLAAD. Scott Evans (Oliver), who was a pivotal part of the victory, attended the ceremonies with Brett Claywell (Kyle) and One Life’s head writer, Ron Carlivati.  Evans was asked on the red carpet what was next for his career, and his feelings on the news handed down this week that the gay-storyline involving his character is being written out of the series in April.  

Since the video is very hard to hear, On-Air On-Soaps transcribed Evan’s comments.  “I think we told a fantastic story. Of course we feel like there’s always more places it could go. We told an incredible story. It got a lot of great reactions, maybe one or two not so great ones from people who are closed-minded. Now we’re done and moving on and I’m excited to see what’s next in store for me.”

Scott Evans is claiming that only closeminded (therefore homophobic) people didn’t like Kish. He’s acting as closeminded as the homophobes he’s critiquing. Evans should realize that not everyone who doesn’t like Kish is automatically closeminded (which is his word for homophobic).

I’m a queer male fan of soaps since my childhood, I thought Evans delivered unconvincing, awful portrayals on a consistent basis. I thought Nuke and Otalia had good moments, I really liked Bianca’s coming out on AMC since the writing was great and Reigel brought a sensitivity to the role. Reigel was great with Lucci, and she would have won an Emmy earlier had it not been for B&B’s Jennifer Finnigan.

Scott Evans needs to realize that some people who were open to the storyline of Kish got turned off by the political overtones, Carlivati’s writing and Evans’s goofy, distracting acting. Also OLTL should not have won for glaad, but GL should have won bec of Chappell’s acting in Otalia. GL had its same sex couple til it got canceled, but OLTL wrote out Kish. Chappell even created Venice for her Otalia fanbase. But I’m guessing glaad gave OLTL the award bec it would create a story in the media that would generate a lot of buzz. Here’s glaad awarding a show that just axed its same sex couple. Like glaad would award GL when Ellen Wheeler, GL’s much maligned EP, is Mormon. And of course Ron Carlivati being the only openly gay Headwriter on Daytime was a factor in glaad awarding OLTL.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
