( — Veteran financial news correspondent Ted David to make a special appearance on “One Life to Live” next month as Llanview’s mayoral election kicks into high gear.

For nearly 20 years, David could be found behind the CNBC anchor desk between 1989 and 2008. During his stint at The Consumer News and Business Channel, he could also be heard on CNBC radio and seen providing stock market updates on MSNBC and as a weekend anchor on WNBC-TV in New York City. Prior to joining CNBC, David was an anchor for ABC News Radio and most recently he was an anchor for “Business Week.” He currently does freelance work, most notably for Cablevision’s News12 Long Island and news radio station 1010 WINS.

Ted David will make his “One Life to Live” debut in the coming weeks when he appears in Llanview as the moderator of a political debate between incumbent Mayor Stan Lowell and challenger (and past Mayor) Viki Banks.

According to David Hinckley of the New York Daily News, the political commentator was asked to appear on the soap “after ‘OLTL’ executive producer Frank Valentini said he liked David’s work on CNBC.”

David’s first airdate will be Tuesday, September 8th, and there are hints that he may show up again sometime before the November election.

The Inside Story: Desperate Measures
Thinking he’s spotted his sister Patty heading upstairs of the GCAC, he tells J.T. that he needs to see if it’s really her, and heads up after her. Entering her suite after her, Paul is stunned to see that it is Mary Jane. He quickly starts to call the police but Mary Jane stops him dead in his tracks when she announces that she is really Patty. J.T., who is still downstair waiting for Paul to return, begins to wonder what has happened to him, and heads upstairs and gains entrance. He notices that there was a struggle in the room and quickly calls the police to inform them that Paul has gone missing. Mary Jane/Patty, meanwhile is forcing Paul at knifepoint to drive away from the club. The two of them start to argue, which causes her to become upset. When Paul stops the car suddenly, he is accidentally cut with the knife. Relieved that she didn’t seriously hurt her brother, Mary Jane hands over the knife. They soon hear police sirens and Paul makes the hasty decision to hide her at the very church where she made her confession to Father Todd. Paul soon calls his brother to let him know that he has their sister but needs to keep her safe. He’s then given a name of a priest at St. Jude’s Church. Meanwhile, J.T. lets Heather know about Paul and she is worried that he’s in serious danger. Her fears mount when J.T. learns that Paul’s car has been found with traces of blood on the seat. Paul, on the other hand, wants to know why Mary Jane came back to Genoa City. When she tells him she came back for Jack, Paul is beside himself. The more she continues to talk about Jack, the more Paul realizes that his sister has really lost touch with reality. After more talking and pleading, Mary Jane allows Paul to contact J.T. but makes him promise not to alert the authoritiies. Unfortunately for both of them, J.T. is already with Heather and Chance, who both want to know where they are.. J.T. arrives but Paul is upset that Heather and Chance tagged along. Paul does his best to tell Heather that Mary Jane is really her aunt Patty, telling her not to reveal her identity. Heather, however, doesn’t listen to Paul and opens her mouth telling Chance who she really is. Things don’t look good when Heather’s attempts to get Paul to do the right thing in turning his sister in don’t work. Instead, Paul calls the media to the church and all are stunned, including Jack, to see Paul defending Mary Jane. Meanwhile, Mary Jane calls Jack and drops another bombshell on him: she’s pregnant. Unable to grasp what’s going on, Jack makes his way to the church. Paul, meantime, trying to protect his sister, tries his best to convince Owen to have Mary Jane placed under house arrest the same way Victor had Adam. When Owen balks, Paul issues out a serious warning: no deal, he’ll let all of Genoa City know that there are two sets of rules; one for the powerful and one for everyone else.

A Closer Look: Strange Behavior
Victor informs Ashley that Jack is seeking to have her committed and that he’s set up a court-ordered psychiatric evaluation. Ashley becomes furious that her brother would do such a thing to her and automatically comes to the conclusion that Jack is doing this all to get even with Victor. Victor tells his wife that he’s not going to let Jack do anything to her but she tells him that she’s going to take care of Jack herself. She calls him to come to the Newman ranch and tells him that she wants him to call off the evaluation because it would be an embarrassment to the family if they found out. Jack tells her that they agree with him that she should be looked after and she hits the roof. When he leaves Ashley nervously confides all to Adam. Seeing an opportunity to keep Ashley in his hold, Adam convinces her that he will help her convince the doctor that she is not going crazy. Meanwhile, Jack arrives with Dr. Jamison, and alone, she starts the evaluation; to which Ashley passes. When the doctor returns downstairs, she tells Jack and Victor that nothing is wrong with Ashley except suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and that there is no need to have her in in-patient care. Jack, not pleased with her findings assumes Victor paid the doctor to lie. Alone upstairs, Ashley tells Adam how thankful she is to him for helping her. She heads to her room but asks Adam to lay beside her until she’s able to fall asleep. Adam’s at first hesitant to do so, but gives in, letting Ashley fall asleep in his arms.

( — A look at what you didn’t see the past few weeks on “One Life to Live.”


Blair insists to Dorian that she no longer has any romantic interest in Todd. Dorian, still nursing a hangover, tells Blair that she’s being too loud. Blair continues that, even though she no longer wants Todd, she sees no harm in stirring up a little trouble between him and Téa, considering all the problems Blair believes Téa has caused her over the years. Dorian interrupts and says to Blair that Todd been a bigger headache to her over the years than Téa. Blair agrees, and says she can use Téa’s secret to create friction between both her and Todd. Dorian asks Blair where she is going as she heads for the door. Blair states that she has business to take care of and that Dorian should finish her smoothie, saying it’s a good way to help get rid of a hangover.

Viki, Charlie, and Clint are talking upstairs at Asa’s lodge as the electricity comes back on. Natalie rejoices from downstairs about the lights being back on, and asks if they are back on upstairs as well. Viki responds in the affirmative, prompting Natalie to yell for the trio to come rejoin the group so they can start the party. Viki says that she is on her way, and begins walking to the staircase. Clint tells Charlie that he is a very lucky man to getting married to such a wonderful woman. Charlie thanks Clint and says he realizes just how blessed he is to have found someone like Viki. Charlie agrees when Clint tells him that it’s about time he and Viki were getting married, since she deserves to be happy. As the two men head downstairs, Asa’s long lost wedding gift to Viki and Clint from their first wedding in 1982 remains on the dresser.

Blair tells Rex that, while she doesn’t want Todd, she is nonetheless stuck with him because of the kids. Rex asks Blair if she is attempting to stick it to Todd by going after the woman he loves. She asks Rex if he has ever met Téa, and assures Rex that she is certainly not worth the concern he has for her. Blair blasts back when Rex tells her that maybe Todd and Téa are happy and in love, saying she doesn’t give a damn. Rex assert to Blair that she doesn’t care about anything other than getting what she wants, which he thinks is Todd. Blair tells Rex is he a horrible private investigator. Rex responds by saying that he is right, to which Blair gives him a frustrated look.

Madame Delphina is closing the curtains on her balcony doors as she prepares to contact Nash’s ghost for Jessica. Delphina says she needs to her money upfront, prompting Jessica to hand her a wad of bills. Delphina takes the money, claiming it will help in her concentration. As she prepares to get started, Delphina tells Jessica that she needs something personal of Nash’s that helps remind her of her late husband. She pulls a stuffed elephant from her purse, which Jessica tells Delphina that her that a few days ago, her daughter Bree said was given to her by her daddy. Delphina responds by saying “Whoa,” causing Jessica to ask if that is the physic’s professional opinion. Delphina isn’t so certain when Jessica says that a person would have had to transport the stuffed animal since it is a solid, physical object. Delphina goes on to say that it will provide them with some answers, but their chances of contacting Nash will increase if they use the picture of him that Jessica has in her wallet. A confused Jessica places the picture on the table. Delphina comments on how attractive he was as she places the picture next to the stuffed elephant. Then they each take a deep breath, at which point Delphina tells Jessica to clear her mind and remember Nash. However, she warns Jessica that there is no guarantee that she will be able to reach Nash’s spirit. Jessica confesses that she doesn’t believe in this kind of stuff. Delphina fires back by stating that she wonders how many people really believe in multiple personalities. Jessica responds that it’s only because they don’t understand it, but that once they see it first hand, then they are convinced that they are real. Delphina smiles and says that it’s funny how that works. Then they both place their hands on the table and begin their attempt to contact Nash’s spirit from beyond the grave.
