Wishful Casting: Singing Soap Stars Who Would (Country) Rock a TV Adaptation of John Schlimm's Novel 'Twang'By Jamey Giddens on August 26, 2011
For the past few weeks I've been raving about country music publicist-turned-novelist John Schlimm's soapy, fiction debut Twang. The novel about a scandalous, secret tell-all being penned about honky tonk duo The Field Sisters and Nashville royalty Thad Evans and Hope Tanner (threatening to reveal their most shocking secrets to their fans), reads like the pilot for a soap that could be called Desperate Nashville Wives. This got me to thinking, wouldn't it be great if some of our daytime soap faves—many of whom happen to know a thing or three about singing a little "twang"—be perfect for a TV adaption of Schlimm's book?
Crowd Goes Wild For One Life to Live's Kassie DePaiva and GH's Jason Thompson at Kentucky Health ExpoBy Jamey Giddens on July 25, 2011
Attendees at the WHAS-ABC Health and Fitness Expo in Louisville, Kentucky needed to get their collective blood pressure checked this past Saturday when soap siren Kassie DePaiva (Blair, One Life to Live) arrived at the event. DePaiva attended the expo with fellow ABC soaper Jason Thompson (Patrick, General Hospital). The two signed autographs for fans and participated in a Q&A. Smart move having those two attend a health expo. I can't think of a better way to get peoples' hearts racing!
One Life to Live’s Kassie DePaiva helped celebrate the arrival of hubby and former OLTL co-star James DePaiva’s Nightmare Alley at Players Theatre in New York City. The talented couple were joined by their son JQ DePaiva at the performance on April 2nd.
You can see James DePaiva in Nightmare Alley through April 10. Visit BroadwayBox.com to purchase tickets.
