My View of Llanview: July 15 Edition

Photo: Errol Lewis/SONThursday, July 15, 2010 12:01 AM ET | By Scotty Gore (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The Top 5 reasons "One Life to Live's" ratings are in the toilet. Given the crap that "OLTL" has been dishing out lately in terms of poor writing, bad acting, and choppy storytelling, here are a few of the major reasons why I believe the show is getting what it deserves. 5. Constant re-writes and behind-the-scenes antics. To  anyone who is left watching this show on a regular basis, it is evident that certain scenes and plot twists have surely been revised and rewritten.

It would make about as much scene as having Addie, Jack, or Sam do it. And the constant scenes with Eli trying to explain his actions to Hannah and Ford are...

From 2007-2009 (and again briefly earlier this year) Brotherton spent his days in Llanview where his character was busy romancing Natalie Buchanan (Melissa Archer). But now the actor is testing the primetime waters, where has hooked another short-term gig. After appearing as Leo in an episode of the ill-fated Melissa Milano sitcom "Romantically Challenged" back in the spring, Brotherton has landed a guest spot on the the more popular Lifetime series "Drop Dead Diva," which stars Brooke Elliott as the spirit of dead supermodel Deb Dobkins, who has been reincarnated in the body of brilliant, but overweight (and also recently deceased) attorney named Jane Bingum.
