(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Daytime's biggest night was Sunday, June 19, but before the star studded "Daytime Emmy Awards" got underway there was talk around the Hilton that ABC had received offers from multiple unnamed production companies seeking to purchase the rights to "All My Children" and/or "One Life to Live" from the Walt Disney owned television network nearly three months since it canceled the dramas. This despite the network making it clear there was no longer a wide enough audience to sustain viewership and advertising dollars. Reasons for declining said offers remained unclear as Soap Opera Network went to press.Since announcing the cancellations on Thursday, April 14, TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan revealed that network insiders were telling him that ABC was open to selling "AMC" and "OLTL" to anyone "that might be interested in picking up the shows or even taking over ownership."An ABC rep declined comment.All My ChildrenOne...

DePaiva Reflects on Her Time in Llanview

Wednesday, June 22, 2011 2:04 AM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Kassie DePaiva has spent nearly two decades on "One Life to Live" in the role of Blair Cramer. Earlier this month, the Kentucky native sat down with a local newspaper to talk about the show's cancellation and the next step in her career. The Union County, KY native (whose hometown is roughly 130 miles from that of yours truly), told the Evansville (Indiana) Courier Press on June 13  what it was like when he first took over the role of Blair from Asian-American actress Mia Korf back in 1993, commenting that "When I did get the part I was thrilled, but also a little bit shocked because I didn't think that I looked the part." Now, nearly twenty years later, DePaiva admits that she has grown to love the role and working on "One Life to Live," and that she will be depressed to see it all end later...
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — This is only a test. Repeat, this is only a test. On Wednesday, November 9, the Federal Communications Commission, or FCC, is scheduled to have its first ever nationwide test of the fourteen year old Emergency Alert System. The planned time for the test is 2:00 pm ET, which will leave many soap fans, especially those of "One Life to Live," feeling a sense of déjà vu. The system, which has existed in its current form since 1997, has most recently been used by the National Weather Service, state and local governments, and law enforcement agencies to relay information to the public regarding natural and man-made disasters, severe weather warnings, and Amber Alerts. The nationwide test will be similar to those currently used by television and radio stations around the country, and is intended as a way to get all of the kinks out of the system. According to...

Is a Buchanan Bride on Her Way Back to Llanview?

Tuesday, June 21, 2011 11:17 PM EDT
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — More than a year after her character divorced Clint Buchanan (Jerry verDorn) and was blackmailed into leaving town by David Vickers (Tuc Watkins), could "Gossip Girl" actress Amanda Setton be returning to "One Life to Live" as the jilted Kimberly Andrews? While the speculation has yet to be confirmed, its source lies with one particular "OLTL" crew member. Julia Davis (of Julia Jovone Beauty), who has been a make-up artist on "OLTL" since October 2005, tweeted on June 13 that she had "Just finished getting @amandasetton into character for 'One Life to Live.' Love her features." Setton, however, hasn't commented on a possible "OLTL" return on her Twitter page. Setton made her "One Life" debut as Kimberly Andrews on August 14, 2009. She left the role on April 2, 2010 after rejecting an offer by the show to place her on contract, in order to return to her primetime...
