        Real-Life 'One Life' Couple Gets Engaged

        ( — Two of “One Life to Live’s” newest cast members have taken the next step in their relationship. Terri Conn (Aubrey) and Austin Peck (Rick), who fell in love while playing husband and wife on “As the World Turns,” publicly announced their recent engagement during red carpet interview shortly before this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards telecast.

        Conn joined “One Life to Live” as Aubrey Wentworth last December. From 1998-2010 she played Katie Peretti on “As the World Turns.” Peck made his “OLTL” debut as smut peddler Rick Powers back in March. He previously played Austin Reed on “Days of our Lives” from 1995-2002 (and again from 2005-2006, and briefly in 2010), and Brad Snyder on “As the World Turns” from 2007-2009. In an interesting twist, their “One Life” characters have yet to interact on screen.

        A wedding date for the happy couple has not been set, however it will be the second marriage for both actors.

        Click here to read a March SON interview with Conn and Peck, in which they discuss their relationship and their roles on “One Life to Live.”

        Congratulations to Terri Conn and Austin Peck on your engagement from Soap Opera Network!

          My View of Llanview: June 30 Edition

          My View of Llanview: June 30 Edition

          ( — Rex Balsom proves in one day that he is more of a Buchanan than he will likely ever admit.

          The more Rex (John-Paul Lavoisier) keep trying to prove he is nothing like his father, the more they seem to have in common. Rex, like Clint, and Asa for that matter, has proven that he can be ruthless, selfish, and take drastic action in order to get whatever he wants. And he has shown that he that will go out of his way to protect his family and seek his own brand of justice if any one of them is placed in harm’s way. Based simply on those facts alone, Rex has more than proven that he belongs in the Buchanan fold.

          However, don’t think that just because he is a “chip off the old block,” that he has suddenly become one of my favorite residents of Llanview. The boy has always been a scheming, convening little punk that was constantly up to no good in my book. He is no better now than he was when he first arrived in Llanview and tried to steal his sister Jessica’s inheritance.  And no, I don’t buy this sudden interest in his own family (Gigi and Shane). Judging by what is coming up in the next few weeks, it is clear he is much more intent on hurting those who hurt him than being there for his son Shane and properly mourning Gigi’s passing. And don’t even get me started on his taking his late grandmother Olympia’s wedding ring.

          Although I suppose the scenes of him saying good-bye to Gigi on Wednesday’s episode where somewhat touching. I know I found myself shedding a tear or two alongside Rex — only my tears were because he continue to be on the show until it ends in January. Now that nearly had me all chocked up, even more so after watching the scenes with Baz, Nate, Deanna, Dani, Starr, and James.

          Speaking of the teen scene, how odd it was to watch Lenny Platt, who is nearly as old as I am (I’m 31 by the way), playing an 18-year-old just graduating high school in scenes with his girlfriend Dani, whose portrayer Kelley Missal is only 17. I find that more than a little creepy. And exactly why is it that “One Life to Live” seems so persistent with this “Deanna and Nate do porn” storyline? It’s disgusting, idiotic, and nothing more than a stupid plot point. This show is obsessed with porno movies, shirtless men, strippers, and suggestive dialogue that leaves absolutely nothing up to the imagination (aside from, of course, how exactly the writers dreamed up these plots in the first place).

          While on the subject of the teens, what purpose exactly does Baz serve? I say that as rhetorical question, of course, because I know he was brought on to prop Starr and James. However, he is nothing more than a plot point, and a bad one at that. And why are the writers already trying to drive a wedge between those two, when they just recently come together? Why not just give the kids a break and let them be happy and in love for a while and make the fans happy and place both of them on the back burner for a few months. That would be the best thing for everybody involved.

          And lastly, I wish someone would smack that damn smug smile off of Jack Manning’s face permanently. He really is his father’s son if he can bully Shane, publicly humiliate him, leave him to die from an asthma attack he himself was responsible for, push him to the brink of suicide, and set a trap for him that resulted in Gigi suffering carbon monoxide poisoning, yet barely show even the tiniest bit of remorse for his actions. One would think that, even on a soap opera, Jack should get what’s coming to him, but not on “One Life to Live.” Knowing how this show has been lately, it should only be a matter of time before the redemption of Jack begins (oh wait, that already happened) and all his misdeeds are just swept under the rug and forgotten about, just like nearly every other character on the show. They say justice is blind. But in Llanview it is also deaf, mute, and on vacation.

          Moving on, congratulations to “CBRVA83,” who correctly identified last time’s mystery “OLTL” celebrity guest star, which was singer/musician Hazel Scott, who sang at the wedding of Ed Hall (Al Freeman, Jr.) and her onscreen cousin Carla Hall (Ellen Holly).

          In case you missed the clues, here they are:

          This accomplished jazz singer and pianist stopped by Llanview back in the ’70s, when she sang at someone’s wedding.

          Now it’s time to play another round of “Llanview, Who Am I?,” a new feature where you have to use the clues to figure out the identity of some mystery celebrity from “OLTL’s” past. See if you can figure it out. Good luck!!!

          This famous millionaire’s ex-wife played an Atlantic City casino owner in 1991, where she shared scenes with a handful of Llanview residents, including one with a gambling problem.

          So who is this mystery group from the past? I’ll have the answers in the July 15th edition of My View of Llanview. Bonus points if you can tell me the names of the of her famous ex-husband, as well as two main characters she interacted with. And don’t forget to check out my Twitter page for all the latest “OLTL” news and information at SON.

          Now, before I wrap up this column, I’m going to look into my crystal ball and give you a quick sneak peek at a few things coming up a few weeks down the road. These are for the week of July 18th. Two people go missing. Someone is attacked. A clue is found. And one man goes to great lengths to keep a secret.

          Well that’s concludes yet another column. Have a great 4th of July, and stay safe! And until next time remember, we only have “One Life to Live”…

              Y&R Recap: Tuesday, June 28, 2011

              ( — "The Young and the Restless" Episode Recap – Tuesday, June 28, 2011.

              IT HAPPENED TODAY…

              Noah paid Victor a visit at the farmhouse. He was wondering if he had seen Abby at all. Victor explained that Abby needed to take care of her drinking problem and has gone to a rehabilitation center. Meanwhile, Abby, at the rehabilitation center, insisted that this wasn't where she belonged. The attendant that she was talking to told her she was there was a reason.

              Michael ran into Diane at Gloworm. He was surprised that she was talking to him. She said that he wasn't to blame for Victor's deeds. Michael pointed out that if she had left town when he told her to, she wouldn't be in the mess she was in with Adam and Jack. He warns her that if it's found out that she was in cahoots with Jack and Adam to mess up the IPO, she's going down hard. He left and it was clear that Diane was greatly scared.

              Neil and Ashley arrived at the hospital to check on the condition of Tucker. Katherine was a bit bothered when talking to Ashley about Tucker, who she said was asking for her. When Ashley went into the room, Neil commented on how kind Katherine was to let the two of them be together.

              Devon and Michael ran into one another at Crimson Lights. He pleasantly shocked Devon with his knowledge of Noah and his hard work on the album. Going out to the patio area of the coffee house, he called to speak with Eden but was unable to get in contact with her. When Noah met up with Devon at the coffee house, Michael wanted to know if he has spoken to Eden. Noah said they lost touch when he left Paris. A concerned Michael said he needed to talk to her.

              In group, Abby reluctantly said down. They were getting ready to start when a girl ran in, taking her seat. Abby was stunned to see that the girl was Noah's ex, Eden. When the mentor requested that Abby introduce herself and why she was there, she joked that she was there to make her father happy and that she wouldn't be there long. When a problem arose, the mentor left to take care of it, leaving Abby and Eden alone to confront one another. Eden didn't buy Abby's story about being there to make family happy; and Abby didn't buy that Noah wasn't the real reason why Eden was in rehab. When the two go at it at one another, the mentor spots them talking and tells them that since Eden is a senior member of the rehab center, she will be Abby's buddy to do things. Eden and Abby look on at her in dismay.

              Katherine showed up at the ranch and wanted to know from Victor if he was aware about Abby hitting Tucker. Victor, as Ashley, lied and said that Abby wasn't the driver of the car. Katherine became frustrated and said she wanted to know what was going on and why everyone was trying to keep things from her. Victor told Katherine to focus on the fact that Tucker came out of his coma and was alive. Meanwhile, Tucker, with Ashley, was trying to look at his medical chart but was unable to read it.

              Leslie met up with Neil briefly at Gloworm before making her way toward Diane. Diane was confident that she could help her get out of the charges but Leslie burst her bubble by telling her that it doesn't look good for her. Diane said that she wasn't involved at all but Leslie pointed out that it would be hard to prove otherwise, and that she could face jail time. Leslie further rubbed Diane in the wrong way by quipping that even Martha Stewart managed to survive some jail time. Gathering her things, Leslie left Diane alone. She was soon approached by Katherine, who still wanted to get to the truth about Tucker's accident. Diane insisted to Katherine that she knew for a fact that Ashley hit her son. When she left, Neil approached Katherine and questioned her on if Tucker was aware of all the changes she was making to his company.

              Noah beat himself up to Devon about not being there for Abby and the fact that he had to learn that was in rehab from his grandfather. Devon admitted he was feeling bad about not being there more for his own family. While talking, Noah shared that when he broken up with Eden, she said he was just as bad as the rest of the Newman family; he wanted so bad to prove that it wasn't true. He soon called the facility to find out times he could visit Abby. Back at the facility, Eden told Abby that she was doing well at the center but her time was soon over. Abby wondered if she was going to head back to Genoa City. Eden said she wasn't going back because she didn't want to see Noah anymore.

              Michael went to meet Victor. He learned that Victor was aware that Abby hit Tucker. Victor wanted to make sure that the case would never make it to trial. Michael mentioned that there was a witness that saw the accident. They both chuckle that the witness was Diane. The two soon decide to work to get Diane to do what they wanted. After making a phone call to her, they stunned her when she arrived to see them together. Victor tells her that he has a plan to make all her problems disappear.

              At the hospital Tucker tells Ashley he wants to marry her: now. They are soon surrounded by hospital staff and a minister, who is doing the ceremony. As the two are exchanges their 'I do's', Katherine is making her way back to Tucker's room. She is dismayed to see that the two have tied the knot.
