Guiding Light alum Wendy Moniz and One Life to Live’s Trevor St. John have signed on to star opposite Saturday Night Live’s Rachel Dratch in the flick The Grief of Others, according to Variety. The film is based on the Leah Hager Cohen novel of the same name, and will focus on a couple whose baby dies 57 hours after birth. The pair try to return to their lives, but have a hard time keeing things together.
In matters of the heart, betrayal is the one thing that can spin everyone’s lives into turmoil. This is sure to be the fate of the characters from ABC’s upcoming fall drama Betrayal. READ MORE

Okay, forgive this momentary lapse of extreme fanboy behavior, but...YEEEEEEEK!TV Guide is reporting one of my all-time favorite soap opera super bitches, Wendy Moniz, is joining the cast of ABC's upcoming supernatural sudser 666 Park Avenue!
Soap fans last saw Moniz playing the ball-breaking mayor on the final season of One Life to Live. For this Guiding Light watcher, however, she will always be the most gleefully hateful (and best) Dinah Marler ever!
According to TV Guide, Moniz will appear on 666 in a multi-episode arc, as a therapist named Ingrid. As if Vanessa Williams and Dave Annable being part of this cast wasn't reason enough for me to watch 666 Park Avenue, now my Dinah Marler, er Wendy Moniz is in it too?! Watch a clip of Moniz as bitch-nasty Dinah, opposite the equally incredible Maeve Kinkead (Vanessa) from Guiding Light, below!
Yes! Yes! Three-thousand times yes! Wendy "Da Baddest Chick" Moniz has been cast on One Life to Live! According to Soap Opera Digest, the Guiding Light alum will play Llanview's new top politico, Mayor Finn, when Dorian (Robin Strasser) vacates the job.
It looks like I can finally stop Wishfully Casting Moniz on each and every soap opera now (Although I still say she'd be a helluvah Sarah Horton on DAYS!). Seriously y'all, Moniz was IT when she played bitch goddess Dinah Marler on Guiding Light from 1995-1999 and again briefly in 2000.
Here's hoping Mayor Finn not only gets a first name, but a meaty storyline in Llanview. And while we're at it, Prospect Park needs to go on right ahead and lock Moniz in a deal to continue with the series online! WOOOO HOOOO! My Dinah Marler is back, bitches! Watch a clip of Moniz as Dinah opposite the incomparable Maeve Kinkead as Vanessa below.
