One Day At A  Time sitcom star, Broadway veteran, and a recent guest star on The Young and the Restless, Bonnie Franklin, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

In a brief statement issued by her family circulated by CBS, it stated Franklin was being treated for pancreatic cancer and was “continuing her normal schedule during this time.”   It went on to say that, “She and her family remain extremely positive and thank everyone for their support and concern.”  It concluded with a request that her privacy be respected.

Franklin last aired today on Y&R as Sister Celeste, a modern day nun, and was involved in Victor Newman’s MIA storyline that is playing out now.

Bonnie is best known for playing divorced mom Ann Romano in CBS’s hit comedy One Day at a Time, which ran from 1975-84.  She also appeared in TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland last year — reuniting her with her One Day co-star Valerie Bertinelli. 

Our thoughts are with Bonnie and her family at this time.

I’m in agreement with dg on this! I was very saddened to hear that she has pancreatic cancer and it is one of those cancers that if not caught early will very likely kill you. My prayers go out to Bonnie Franklin, her family and friends as she battles this disease at this difficult time. Godspeed Bonnie! Get well soon!

This is so sad. Usually when they discover pancreatic cancer it’s too late to do anything about it. It can briefly go into remission, but usually it means you’re gone in less than a year. I’ve lost 3 friends/relatives to this type of cancer in the last four years and it’s been the same basic scenario for all of them.

What awful news. I have really enjoyed her as Sister Celeste. I know I wasn’t on board to begin with all the stunt casting, but she is very likeable. I hope she can muster the strength to fight this terrible disease.

Nathan Fillion Talks His Start On OLTL On ‘The View’ With Whoopi Goldberg

On Thursday’s episode of ABC’s The View, Nathan Fillion visited the show promoting his series, The Rookie.  But during the beginning of his conversation with Whoopi Goldberg, he talked about what he learned from his humble beginnings in show business as Joey Buchanan on the beloved One Life to Live.

Of course, OLTL fans recall that Nathan was involved in a romantic storyline with Llanview icon, Robin Strasser (Dorian) and played the on-screen son to another icon, Erika Slezak (Viki).

Fillion shared about this time on One Life: “Everything I did and everything I do I learned on that show.  I never speak poorly on daytime … it was such a warm kind place to be.   I learned everything there.  I don’t know where an actor can go and work with people that have worked in the business for 25, 35, 40 years, and I had no idea what i’m doing …and they said, ‘no problem here is what you do’.  So, it was very good people.”

Goldberg also alluded to that she “missed the soaps” meaning All My Children and One Life to Live that shot right where they are in New York City at the ABC studios on 66th and 67th street.

Watch Nathan talk his early career and more with the ladies of The View below.  Then, let us know what you think about the sentiments he share from his time at One Life to Live via the comment section.

Y&R’s Thad Luckinbill To Produce ‘Postscript’ The Film Adaptation of Sequel To “P.S. I Love You”

We all know that Thad Luckinbill (Ex-J.T Hellstrom, The Young and the Restless) wears many hats in the entertainment industry.  He acts, he writes, he produces, he sings … is there anything that this talented guy doesn’t do?

Now comes word that Luckinbill’s production company (with his brother Trent and Molly Smith), Black Label Media, in conjunction with Alcon Entertainment, has secured the rights to the the novel Postscript and will turn it into a motion picture.

Postscript is the recently released sequel to Cecelia Ahern’s 2004 debut novel, P.S. I Love You.  The original movie starred two-time Oscar winner, Hilary Swank as Holly who loses her husband tragically when he dies from a brain tumor.  Then, a grieving Holly discovers that her husband has left behind 10 letters designed to help Holly overcome her sorrow and transition to a new life.

According to Deadline, who broke the news of this film deal: In, Postscript (which hit book stores this week in the U.S.) the story picks up Holly seven years after her husband’s death with Holly having peacefully moved on with her life.  However, when Holly’s sister asks her to tell the story of the “PS, I Love You” letters on her podcast — she does so reluctantly, not wanting to reopen old wounds. Soon after the episode airs, people start reaching out to Holly, and they all have one thing in common: they’re terminally ill and want to leave their own missives behind for loved ones.”
