Which is your favorite couple: Jared & Natalie or Antonio & Talia?
Kamar de los Reyes
Remember Taggert? Real Andrews portrayed the tough as nails Port Charles police officer on General Hospital that was constantly a thorn in Sonny's side and gave Jason Morgan his "anger boy" nickname. According to Andrews himself, he is New York bound to the set of One Life to Live. The actor updated his twitter profile twice today:
Going to New York with Son to audition for "one life to live"
All done with the auditionthanks for your well wishes in Ggos hands now on my way home oh by the way the best part is time with my son
Of course I had to check with my girl Tina to get the scoop and see just what role Real could be auditioning for. The RUMORS have two possible characters. One would be a new cop hitting Llanview to replace the exiting Antonio and Talia (Kamar de los Reyes and BethAnn Bonner) or he may have auditioned to play Rachel's boyfriend.

Inside sources are saying BethAnn Bonner (Talia) has been let go from One Life to Live. It looks like the exit of Kamar de los Reyes may have sealed her fate after all. No word yet on how Talia will be written out, and we are still trying to get confirmation from the network so keep checking back to Daytime Confidential as the story progresses.
As sorry as I will be to see talented actor Kamar de los Reyes vacate the role of Antonio Vega on One Life to Live, I would hate to see the recently-revitalized Vega clan or Antonio's red hot, interracial romance with Thalia (BethAnn Bonner) sacrificed. So to prevent that from happening, I am offering up a perfectly caliente solution to the Antonio Conundrum– Diego Serrano.
Serrano shot to soapy fame as Tomas, the foster son of John and Sharlene Hudson on Another World in the mid-90's. He was well on his way to achieving teen supercouple status on AW before leading lady Robin Griggs' (ex-Maggie Cory) real life friendship with the man who was once attached to the peter Lorena Bobbit sliced and diced, allegedly got her tossed from the NBC soap. Ah, those P&G moralists and their pitch forks!
Serrano later turned up on The Young and the Restless, where he originated the role of Diego, Raul (David Lago)'s older brother who later gave Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) a little Latin lovin' in the back room at Crimson Lights. Although by the time Diego did the do with Nick's randy wifey the role was being played by a post-Charmed, pre-LuSam Greg Vaughan. READ MORE

Can pretty much anyone get cut and it be blamed on the economy?
All My Children's Jake gets harsh with Amanda but does it make sense? Does Taylor have better chemistry with Brott or Frankie? Is the show trying to force to many pairings and not letting magic happen organically?

Soaps.com is reporting that One Life to Live star Kamar de los Reyes is leaving his role as Antonio Vega. According to the web site, the OLTL hunk has made plans with the show to leave at the end of Jan 09.
This shouldn't come as a surprise to readers of ABC's Soaps in Depth. The actor gave a quote that left some wondering if he was one the way out or not.
I realized that after 10 years of being on OLTL, Antonio is no longer the central figure that I believe he deserves to be. I realize this is not intentional on the show’s part, but over the years, he has become less and less valued. I think it may be time to say goodbye.
Fans may recall that the actor portrayed the fomer gang banger turned cop from its inception in 1995 until 1997. In 1998, the actor reprised his role for a guest stint and finally returned to the role in 2000.
