Looks like another ghostly return for "One Life to Live." John Wesley Shipp, who played the abusive father of the Ford brothers and ex-husband of their mom Inez Salinger (Jessica Leccia) appears to be headed back to Llanview for the show's final days on the air. But just what brings the murdered deadbeat dad back to the canvas?
"One Life to Live" tells its Thanksgiving story this year from an unique point-of-view. On Wednesday, November 23, the still comatose Matthew Buchanan (Eddie Alderson) narrates the tale of how the residents of Llanview are celebrating Thanksgiving 2011.
Art imitates life as "One Life to Live" does what it does best by poking fun at itself for an upcoming storyline. Beginning next month, the show's once popular soap-within-a-soap, "Fraternity Row," gets canceled due to sagging ratings, leading one loyal Llanview fan to take drastic action to save her soap. The plot mirrors "OLTL's" own predicament, having been dumped by ABC earlier this year.
John Loprieno who, alongside co-star Andrea Evans, recently reprised their roles as Llanview's former supercouple Cord and Tina Roberts on "One Life to Live," talks about his return to the show and what the future holds for both him and Cord.
