So many stars and major love for CBS for including ATWT and GL… but with so many talents and so many hosts… how much meaningful content will there be?!?!

So true. By the time they walk in and everybody get’s their hugs in, not to mention the commercials, the would have to be two hours for it to have any worth. Maybe if they take out the celebrity commentary at the beginning it might not be half bad. I am still going to watch anyway.

I can’t wait to see this. THIS should be the prototype for a new daytime show, perhaps hosted by the great Michael Fairman. The show could be produced economically and would hold great appeal to the army of disenfranchised soap fans. I say do it!!!

I find it rather ironic that ATWT stars are appearing on the show that replaced it to celebrate CBS daytime that they were kicked out of!

ATWT and OLTL Alum Mary Linda Rapelye Passes Away at 76

She got her soap start as Faith Kipling, the wife of the evil Dr. Ivan Kipling on One Life to Live (1979-1980) and later came to Oakdale and As the World Turns as lawyer, Maggie Crawford (1980-1985), and now comes sad news that actress Mary Linda Rapelye has died from a battle with cancer.

Mary Linda actually passed away last month on April 5th, and according to The Booth Bay Register she was surrounded by her her brother Gardiner Rapelye Jr. and dear friends Julianna and Will Anderson by her side.  She was 76 years old at the time of her death.

Mary Linda started a long career of acting when she was only 5.  After her part in an outdoor production at The Starlight Theater in her home town, Kansas City, Missouri, she climbed off the stage and sat in her father’s lap. This was to be the beginning of her work spanning nearly eight decades on stage, screen and television. She is best known for her roles in Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood, and of course, OLTL and ATWT.  She also made a memorable appearance in the role of Irina Galliulin in the Star Trek: The Original Series third season episode “The Way to Eden”.

A Memorial and Celebration of Life is being planned this July for MaryLinda in Booth Bay.

Below is a tribute video featuring clips and moments from Rapelye’s career.
