Great news for One Life to Live fans! Kassie DePaiva will be singing again on-screen as Blair Cramer Manning, when the series returns on April 29th.  Yesterday in scenes shot at One Life’s studios in Connecticut,  DePaiva thrilled her cast members when she sang her single “No Regrets” during a pivotal scene!

What we do know is that DePaiva’s character of Blair sang “No Regrets” in an emotional moment at Blair’s nightclub, Shelter, Llanview’s newest hot spot, when things hit a snafu!

As fans of Kassie’s know, “No Regrets,”  is included on DePaiva’s CD of the same name, and now in story features lyrics that are a subtle hint to Todd (Roger Howarth) that she’s not over him.

So the question is, will Blair and Todd somehow find their way back to each other for a moment, only to have something tear them apart in the storyline?

Circle the date of April 29th when brand new 30-minute episodes of  One Life to Live will be launched each weekday and available to stream online in HD (when available) via the free Hulu.com service and to subscribers of Hulu Plus making these venerable dramas available in a new format that suits the viewing habits of the digital generation. In addition, the iTunes Store will offer both series via iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Apple TV and Mac or PC.

So excited for the OLTL reboot! It seems the more things change the more they stay the same. Loved when Kassie sang on the show and looking forward to hearing her spill her heart out to Todd once again.

This is so exciting…I can’t wait, all this build up is worrying me a little that it may be a let down. Hope I am wrong about that though.

LOVE Blair and Kassie! I can’t wait to hear her sing on OLTL again!

Ditto!

I love Todd and Carly..
After seeing them together, and their awesome unique love for each other, I can not see Todd being with Blair.. They could never capture the fire of Todd & Carly..

Todd & Carly !!!!

Obviously you’ve never seen Todd and Blair but in a way you have. Scriptwise anyway. All Todd and Cujo scenes were Ron’s rip off of original T&B but with Todd written as Sheckey Manning. Probably found the old scripts.

And whatever that was written on GH it wasn’t Todd Manning. But GH Cujo fans don’t care as long as their girl had ‘Todd.’ And yes HAD because PP owns him and GH can’t even mention the name now.

And as for the ‘fire’ of Tujo — BWWAAAAAH!!

LMAO! Brooke!

I have seen Todd and Blair together and apart and together again same old, since day one..
Todd and Carly are new, refreshing, HOT and unique couple..
Todd has finally broken free and has a love interest that is super for him..
Carly and Todd were made for each other, soap wise.. 🙂

Agree Brook!

Carly is a blair like character so its not new and refreshing loll

Carly new and fresh? Sure, like 3 day old catfish that’s been out in the sun too long.

She’s telling Todd he may be saying Goodbye but that they’ll always love each other. RH may leave but hopefully one day he’ll be back. The same with Michael Easton.

I guess they will only have a moment to find their way back to each other before a giant mouse tears them apart maybe 4ever causing Todd to end up in a 50 year old hospital with a different name and a whole new identity!…LOL!!!

How will people in canada watch?

Do a search for HuLu and VPN …
Then you will know how you can watch HuLu in Canada.. 🙂

ya thats such a pain and a waste for me to find a FREE proxy that works 100% so i can watch a show that would normally be free on tv… prospect park is putting up such a fight over 3 characters ripping the actors from GH and taking away the role of starr manning from the girl who pretty much originated the character and now they make it difficult to watch its basically not worth it…

They own the characters KA does not. PP has been working on showing the shows in Canada!

Nobody knows for sure how and what will actually happen to the 3, the end result as to how all will be handled and dealt with is still a mystery..
Just happy the ”actors” will remain on GH, so far as we know now, but that could change too.

KA was done with Starr Manning when oltl ended and only came back to it because Frank asked her to. She has no rights to the character, PP paid millions of dollars for these 3 characters that GH/ABC tried to fight for. If she wants to work for ABC again it will have to be as a different character.

Oh lord, she’s trying to sing again, my ears are bleeding.

I’m so torn. I mean, I know I’m in the minority, but I really like Todd and Carly. Even if he has to go by a different name, I enjoy the two actor’s onscreen chemistry.
But I AM a Blair and Todd fan as well.

With all that has gone down between them, I wouldn’t mind Blair finding someone else for a little while before rekindling the relationship with Todd. Todd’s at his best when he’s throwing jabs at whomever Blair is with that’s not him. :-p

Blair proclaims to love Tomas, and is engaged and going to marry Tomas ..

your not in the minority, a lot of GH fans love the pairing. now if you ask oltl fan well, thats a whole different story. but i too can’t wait for Roger Howarth to return to GH and create more magic.

He has to return to GH because he’s under contract with them but hopefully when his contract expires he will sign with PP. His family is on the east coast so he’d rather be there anyway. RC really doesn’t know how to write for Todd, RH is too good of an actor to be written as so clown like or to go lusting after someone like any other male lead on soaps. Todd is so much more than that and they’ve hired a writer that wrote for him in his early days and actually has an understanding of the character so hopefully eventually she will be able to write for Todd long term as it should be.

I doubt that Roger Howarth is being forced to complete his contract , if he wants to go to pp I’m sure FV would of let him, so all this crap bout him waiting to finish his contract to then go to pp seems like wishful thinking from certain fans but then again who really knows but Roger anyways. I sure wont believe it from any other source especially if its from ” fans”. So que sera sera! Regardless GH will survive.

I’m so over Todd and Blair. Blair has sung to Todd a million times. This isn’t anything new, just the same merry-go-round. Give Blair a new love interest and let Todd go back to GH.

Love her character but not her singing.

Todd and Carly are the most forced couple and boring as well. When LW is turned side ways when kissing Roger she looks like Kassie. My teenage neices thought it was her in their last scene and where disappointed it wasn’t her. They 2 feel T&C are forced and that he is the town fool. Ron is over doing it with the comedy and not showing Rogers other talents. I hope it’s true that when he returns it will be a different character because Todd belongs in Lanview. Also I’m surprised the GH fans rather have the GH/OLTL3 then keeping some of their own returned past characters. Hope they enjoy all the newbies because of keeping these 3. Beginning April 29th you’ll see want a true and not forced couple is. TnB!!!

Agree jc – Sam & John McBain was also a forced couple. So glad their characters are staying in Llanview and GH ONLY gets the actors.

Prospect Park stop toying around and work out a way to share the characters because it works great for everyone! I am Team Todd and Carly, loved Todd and Blair but been there done that so move on!

I hope Blair is telling Todd goodbye for good. They share children and will always be a part of each other’s lives but Blair has stood enough abuse from Todd as far as I’m concerned. I don’t see how any mother could forgive the man who gave her newborn baby away and told her the baby was dead. Yes, he got the baby back after realizing he was the father but his action was just cruel. Blair has grown as a person over the years and should be over try to reform the bad boy of the century.

Todd & Blair will always belong together. No matter what, Todd belongs in Llanview. Hope Roger ultimately stays with PP & the show where he can play the iconic character he created 20 years ago.

I love gay stories. They should pair up Todd and Felix. We all know Todd was a gang rapist because he was secretly gay. Then they could have a triangle with Milo. He looks really fine when he takes his clothing off. Male/female love stories are way overrated! Then they could bring back Lucas too and have a hot quadrangle. The endgame couple should be Todd and Milo. They could be hotter than Bobbie and Tony were!! Tracy and Ellie should also fall in love. Ellie has to be gay because she doesnt want kids. There just needs to be more gay love because gay love is pure and right. Ratings would rise for sure! Patrick and Felix should go in the shower too.

I pray that your kidding

Looking forward to it! Love her.

I CANNOT wait for the return of OLTL and especially of Todd and Blair. There is an awesome reunion story to be told for these two characters that we weren’t allowed to have at the end of broadcast OLTL. (Yes, I know they ended up together, but there is a much juicier and deeper *story* to be told that wasn’t.) I am hoping for a real reunion for my two favorite characters!

Will OLTL only be shown on the Hulu.com starting 4/29/13? We have cable (not satalite), so I’ll call our cable co. & see if that channel is available. Will the new OLTL ever be on Soapnet.com again? Or just repeats? Thank you,

The fact that there cannot be an article written about only Blair or KDP is a good sign that the character needs to get her own life! Get Blair a new guy and have her actually have a relationship with him. Make the character able to stand on her own outside of her one pairing. Let KDP have some actual fans of HER and not just fans who only like TnB.

agree with you, Jenn. KDP cannot hold on her own. Not to say that she cannot act. Her acting chops is mediocre, at best. Her popularity soley came from riding RH’s coattail no less. Her fans are TB fans and nothing more. Thats why the actress always cries “Todd will always belong with Blair” or something to that extend. Once RH’s Todd leaves, Blair will just be another one bites the dust so to speak.

Tarlyfan. Perfect name. If you’re twelve.

@Margie. Can’t counter someones comment so you’d take personal dig at them?!! Ok. you sound very mature then.

Yeah that why KDP nominated AFTER RH left OLTL….#think before you type

Once alerted to the situation. Wactor did not try to stop or interfere in the theft but the unidentified suspects shot him anyway and then got a way.

Sofia Mattsson (Sasha) – My heart is so utterly broken… Johnny was the absolute best. So genuine. So caring. Incredibly hard working and humble. With a huge heart that spread so much kindness and joy. He always made sure everyone around him felt seen, heard and loved. I admire the man he was so much and I’m a better person for having known him. We shared so many special moments, both on and off screen, and I will forever cherish them deeply in my heart. You will be so incredibly missed Johnny… I’m sure you’re already busy taking care of everyone up there.”

Chad Duell (Michael): “Some POS scum taking the life of someone who’s making something of themselves, and an amazing person. So disgusting and infuriating. Don’t know what else to say.. just so wrong.”

Jon Lindstrom (Kevin): “When the tears slow down, I am literally sick to my stomach at this news. Johnny was one of those rare young men in this business who was kind, unassuming, humble, and always thought about other people. A talented young guy who just wanted to share that talent with the world. I wish I had enough love to fill the hole that his loved ones must feel right now, but I know that’s impossible. Johnny will be missed on this plane. For a long time to come. R.I.P.”

Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis): “An absolutely inconceivable, enraging & senseless tragedy. Johnny was a lovely man. Condolences to his family & friends. May they find eventual peace & may his memory be a blessing.”

Finola Hughes (Anna): “Gutted…. 🕊️ sending my deepest condolences to his family 🤍 I feel I must add to this post. The shock is so terrible, for such a genuine young man to be taken so violently. I am incredibly sad for his family. He was a very hardworking person, kind and extremely respectful to his fellow cast members. I am so sorry for his loss 🤍 Johnny Wactor xxx”

Kirsten Storms (Maxie): “I’m in a state of disbelief and complete sadness. I don’t typically do posts like this, but Johnny was such a special person and it feels important (for me) to put these words out there. To Johnny’s mother and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine what you must be feeling right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Johnny was one of those rare “real individuals” that you almost never come across. I was fortunate enough to have some really good conversations with him where we discussed things I don’t typically open up about. For some reason, we talked about the deep stuff. He was a safe space for those conversations and, in turn, he would talk about his life. He genuinely cared about people and their journeys in life. During his time on GH I witnessed him work hard and truly have respect for every single person in our building. I just cannot believe that his life was stolen from him the way it was. My heart hurts. RIP Johnny”

Bonnie Burroughs (ex-Gladys): “I am heartbroken and sickened by this terrible loss. Johnny I love you. My heart breaks for your real mom and your whole family. The world is darker now.”

Perry Chen (Brad): Johnny Wactor was a beautiful, beautiful soul. So talented. As you can see from the promo clip, always up for anything. Funny as all heck. Fit as all hell but also loved ice cream and ate all the junk I did as well. We all were cheated of many years with him.

Kelly Thiebaud (ex-Britt):  “Johnny Wactor, you were one of the good ones. I’m so sorry this happened to you. RIP”

William deVry (ex-Julian): “Honestly, words can’t begin 2 express the sadness with which 2 convey my feelings towards losing another GH Alum. The senselessness of this lose is beyond description.

General Hospital’s Michael Easton Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Last week over several episodes, General Hospital, handed the ball to one of their longstanding MVP’s Michael Easton (Finn), and he took it all the way in for a touchdown. The backdrop was the lead up to, and then the heartbreaking death of Finn’s father, Gregory Chase (played by Gregory Harrison), and its aftermath.

Through it all, Easton gave every scene its weight, made every scene compelling, and brought us, and we are certain many viewers, to tears throughout it. There is no question come Emmy-time 2025, this is one of the performances that must be remembered, and Michael has the scenes for his reel to back that up.

The set-up was coming off of Finn’s brother, Chase’s (Josh Swickard) wedding to Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton). Gregory asked the nuptials be a bit fast-tracked to ensure he could be present for it, for he was suffering from the illness for which there is no cure, ALS.  At the wedding reception, Finn slipped and took a sip of a glass of champagne, which began to break his seven years of sobriety.

Once back from the reception, Finn and his dad, have the ultimate father/son talk, knowing they are on borrowed time. Finn and Gregory have also had a very strained relationship at one point; due to both’s involvement with Jackie Templeton. But with all that behind them, and in the present, Gregory was able to tell Finn how proud he was of him, and Finn said the same to his dad. There were tears, we all bawled, and then it was time to get Gregory ready for bed. Due to his symptoms from ALS, Gregory needs help getting undressed. Finn helps out his dad, before telling him goodnight. Gregory flashes back to his life and seemingly falls asleep, but he never wakes up.

The next morning, Finn finds him cold and dead in his bed and sits on the floor at his dad’s bedside and weeps. Overwhelmed and alone, Finn pours himself a drink from the bottle left as a gift by the Cerullos. He has now lost his sobriety, completely. Things get even tougher for Finn when his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love) comes home from school and he has to tell her that her grandfather died. He also had to call his brother, who was about to leave on his honeymoon, and tell him the bad news.

Courtesy/ABC

After having a bit more to drink, Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) stops by and they have an argument over his drinking and his unwillingness to let her take Violet with her for the night, which puts a strain in their relationship. Later, when Chase and Brook Lynn show up they can both see that Finn hit the bottle. When Chase finally gets some one-on-one time with his brother, he is able to get through to him.

While mourning the loss of his father, Finn realizes he needs to get cleaned up and get to a meeting. For Finn, as he recounted, having to witness the paramedics taking Gregory’s lifeless body with them was something no son wants to see and was more they could bear.

It was all heart-wrenching, beat by beat. Easton gave us all the layers and complexities and took us inside what Finn was feeling and how he was trying to cope with this terrible loss and tragedy. For all of these reasons, and those cited above, Michael Fairman TV names Michael Easton’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.

Now let us know, do you agree with our pick of Michael Easton for his work on GH for ‘Power Performance’ honors? And what moment from the episodes discussed above really brought you to tears the most? Comment below.
