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.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
