Monday, July 20, 2009 9:55 PM ET | By Scotty Gore(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- Frank McCourt, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of the best-selling memoir Angela's Ashes, passes away at age 78, following complications associated with melanoma. Editor's note: While we here at SON don't normally report on news outside of the soap world, in this case we decided to make an exception, given Frank McCourt's ties to the daytime drama "One Life to Live." The eldest-born of seven children to poor Irish immigrants, Frank McCourt was born in near poverty in Brooklyn, New York on August 19, 1930. With the United States firmly...

Tuesday, June 2, 2009 1:35 AM ET | By Scotty Gore (SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- A Texas mother's real life baby drama shares eerie similarities with a recent storyline on "One Life to Live." In 2002, "One Life to Live" revealed a shocking plot twist -- that Natalie Balsom and Jessica Buchanan were Viki Davidson's twin daughters separated at birth.  To make the storyline even more convoluted, DNA confirmed that both girls had been fathered by different men, and that Viki could only recall giving birth to Jessica.  To explain this bizarre turn of events, "OLTL" revealed that Viki's sworn enemy (cult leader) Mitch Laurence, had drugged and raped...
