In what could be a monumental mess, One Life to Live is nominated tonight for a GLAAD Media Award which is being presented in ceremonies in New York.  One Life’s head writer, Ron Carlivati and Brett Claywell (Kyle) are slated to appear. The series is up against other same-sex storylines from GL, AMC, and ATWT in The Outstanding Drama Series category. It would appear that Kish, who has been the gay-media darling over the last several months would be the top contender.

Yesterday in TV Guide Canada’s Suds Report, Nelson Branco mentioned he had spoken to GLAAD President, Jarret Barrios who stated, “The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) today advocated for continuation of the storyline of characters Kyle and Fish on One Life and spoke out on the importance of bringing fair and accurate media images of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people to Americans. When news reports broke yesterday, GLAAD spoke to ABC Daytime to voice concerns over the cancellation and advocate that the storyline continue. We remain disappointed that ABC Daytime has chosen to stop sharing this powerful story with viewers of One Life. GLAAD will continue to advocate that in the near future, producers and writers at ABC Daytime incorporate gay and transgender characters in their programming.”  In the same piece, Branco shared his conspiracy theories as to why the rug was pulled out from underneath the audience and Kish. Very interesting.

So who do you think should take home the prize tonight for most accurately portraying gays on the soaps?  Comment here and let us know!

I’d still be going for Guiding Light..besides featuring Natalia and Olivia, they had one of their long time characters, Doris, come out as a closeted Lesbian..and were fun enough to pick up on the gay vibes between Cyrus and Remy and were good naturedly fooling around with those.. Maybe it’s not about who portrayed LGBT lifestyles the best..right now it seems to be more of a “How well did you manage to do in spite of your network policy?” So each network should get allotted scores, which then should be added onto the gay positive storylines.Like racing horses are sometimes… Read more »

I hated GL’s gay storyline with Olivia. After all the men Olivia has had, I found the whole idea of making her a lesbian ridiculous. I loved the Kish stoyline. They are the most beautiful and sincere couple on a soap—–gay or otherwise.

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
