One Life to Live's Kassie DePaiva on Upcoming General Hospital Stint: "Once The Mannings Come to Town Anything is Possible"By Jamey Giddens on January 16, 2012
One Life to Live vet Kassie DePaiva has taken to her blog to set the record straight about her upcoming stint as Blair Cramer on sister sudser General Hospital.
Now...on the General Hospital...Yippie. I must say the ads and press release by ABC is a little misleading and I feel I need to clarify to all my friends, family and fans that are emailing and calling wondering when I'm moving to Los Angeles. Frank Valentini, GH's EP, asked me to come out for a couple of shows in February and I'm thrilled. Not only will I get to work with a fantastic cast...but a little piece of OLTL will live on. That makes me very happy. And who knows where it will lead. Once the Mannings come to town anything is possible."
BREAKING NEWS: Roger Howarth, Kassie DePaiva, Kristen Alderson, and Michael Easton Check Into General Hospital!By Jillian Bowe on January 11, 2012
One Life to Live star Kassie DePaiva has offered up an emotional statement on her official website in reaction to Prospect Park's decision to abandon their efforts to save the ABC Daytime soaps. The popular actress, who has starred as Blair Cramer on the serial since 1993, also gave her thoughts on ABC's decision to dismantle their soap lineup and get rid of cable channel SOAPnet.
Words just don't express how sad I am at hearing that Prospect Park has dropped the deal to move forward with ONE LIFE. I think what upsets me the most is how this whole deal has been handled from the get go. I wanted more than anything not to have been cancelled by ABC. I find it mind boggling that a company can spend 45 years building the strongest brand in daytime...launch a cable network to support it and then decide to cancel both broadcast and cable airings, leaving the beloved fans with nowhere to turn for that brand.
Take heart TNT er VNT fans. I'm hearing Trevor St. John (Victor) will in fact make some kind of a return appearance to One Life to Live before the show goes off the ABC airwaves! I have no deets on when or how Todd's (Roger Howarth) brother and Tea's embryo daddy—who was gunned down in his living room earlier this year—will reappear in Llanview (Ghostly? In the flesh? As the figment of someone's imagination?), but I expect it will be epic!
