Meanwhile, during that same week it was announced that Melissa Claire Egan had made the decision to depart "All My Children" and Brittany Underwood had also been fired by "One Life to Live." Those news items did in fact go up on the...

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — "One Life to Live" is having success with turning Clint Buchanan into the J.R. Ewing of daytime,  but an ever increasing cast size and endless display of pretty faces continues to cause problems.Jerry verDorn has quickly become "One Life to Live's" saving grace who, in many ways, is carrying the show right now.  Speaking as someone who never watched his work on "Guiding Light," I am amazed by the quality of his acting.  His presence brings much needed depth "OLTL," and he has the ability to turn garbage into gold so to speak, and totally "sell" his...
