UPDATE 4/7/13: While it is the same duration in length, TOLN has released a revised version of the “One Life to Live” recap video. The revised video removes usage of Little Richard singing and playing the piano during Bo and Nora’s 1995 wedding. To accomodate, fans are able to see an additional second or two of the wedding as the duo walks up the aisle.
PREVIOUS 4/4/13: For more than 43 years ABC’s “One Life to Live” entertained millions of viewers each and every weekday, week after week, year after year. Sadly, the network canceled the soap in 2011 and the series aired its then final episode in January 2012. Now, in anticipation of its return on Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes on Monday, April 29, The OnLine Network has released a recap of the series as hosted by Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord Buchanan).
Nearly 8 minutes in length, Slezak covers the trials and tribulations faced by the youth of Llanview, including the birth of Destiny Evans and Matthew Buchanan’s (previously played by Shenell Edmonds and Eddie Alderson) child, The Tale of Todd, Blair and Tea (Roger Howarth, Kassie DePaiva and Florencia Lozano) and the whole Manning clan – including Victor Lord, Jr. (Trevor St. John)!

Bell chatted with On-Air On-Soaps‘ Michael Fairman in an exclusive interview for FrontiersLA.com, where they opened up about the show finally tackling an LGBT-inspired story.

When you’re a soap fan, it’s tough not to imagine what it would feel like to be in a hot, sweaty love scene with a daytime stud or a fierce, all-out catfight with an iconic diva.

No matter how small or large of a part you’ve may have dreamed of playing on one of your favorite daytime dramas, “General Hospital’s” casting director, Mark Teschner, tells you how to make it happen!
“Fifty Shades of Grey’s” Christian and Ana get all the glory for pushing the boundaries when it comes to how sexuality is portrayed via mainstream entertainment, but soap operas are the true pioneers of bringing sensuality and seduction to popular culture.

“General Hospital’s” Luke and Laura Spencer (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) won’t have to fret about their missing daughter for long: Lulu disappeared and has been off the canvas since Julie Marie Berman last aired on March 22, but now, her new portrayer, Emme Rylan, has announced when her nuLulu will be hitting the screen!

While the talk show host conducts sit down interviews with a number of your favorite stars from the soap on her set, including Genie Francis (Laura Spencer) and Anthony Geary (Luke Spencer), it’s the behind the scenes videos from her time at “GH’s” Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, CA where the real dish lies. In fact, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) even provides viewers with a humorous “size me up” that even Couric can’t stop herself from laughing over…until the ladies duke it out over Colin Firth!
On the Thursday, April 4 edition of “Dr. Phil,” former “All My Children” star J.R.
