Wendy was actually the third Dinah. Jennifer Gatti and Paige Turco preceded her.

There is no replacement for Robin and Dorian, but I am glad that Wendy is coming back to soaps, it’s been WAYYYYY too long! I love her as Dinah (btw she wasn’t the first Dinah but no biggie!) she was so delicious in that role, there was a time she was the only interesting character to watch on there! I hope she plays on OLTL as good as Dinah was and I hope she stays til the show ends on ABC and follows it to Prospect Park (but I also want Robin/Dorian to come back to the show for good… Read more »

I haven’t been able to watch OLTL since Trevor St. John’s Todd/Victor was shot and died. They couldn’t let his character leave Llanview alive to give us hope of his return? The show has been so painfully gutted. Someone new at this point doesn’t matter (no disrespect to Wendy Moniz intended).

Loving her already. Was watching today, and I can tell that I already am going to enjoy having her added to the OLTL canvas. Of course, I always loved Wendy when she was on Guiding Light. So, I’m happy she’s joined the OLTL cast.

Remembering One Life to Live on the 10th Anniversary of its Final Episode on ABC

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the final broadcast of ABC’s One Life to Live. The beloved soap opera was canceled back in April of 2011 along with All My Children, and continued to air till January 13, 2012.

As the story goes, after some false starts, the show wound up in the hands of Prospect Park in an attempted online reboot of the series which lasted some 40 plus episodes, and one season on Hulu in 2013.

Agnes Nixon’s brainchild first took to the airwaves back on July 15, 1968 on ABC, and tackled many of the social issues of our time, delivered unforgettable performances, beloved soap on-screen couples, and often humorous and edgy storylines.

When the soap was initially canceled by ABC, we took to our former site to share our thoughts in the piece here back in 2011.

At the end of its 43-year-run it was then EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took the show to third place in the ratings among six soaps, and delivered a one-two punch of heart, humor, and drama to close out the ABC run of  One Life. (We have posted the final episode below).

Through the years the actors who graced the screen were ,and are, some of the all-time great actresses including: Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Judith Light, Jessica Tuck, Susan Haskell, and so many more.

It also brought us the talented actors including: Al Freeman Jr., Roger Howarth, Trevor St. John, Gerald Anthony, Michael Zaslow, Robert S. Woods, Ryan Phillippe, Nathan Fillion, and the list goes on.

Below, rewatch the final episode, and the extremely well-crafted and delivered speech given by the character of Viki on the penultimate episode, how soap operas touch so many lives a la “Fraternity Row” (But, as we all know, the show was speaking directly to the longtime viewers at home about their cancellation!)

Those videos are followed two emotional interviews we conducted on the final press day of ABC’s One Life to Live with Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, then Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods that we are reposting here.

Now, share your thoughts and remembrances of when you watched the final episodes of One Life to Live, and how you still miss it to this day via the comment section.
