People Magazine is reporting that reputable sources have indicated that "All My Children" star Rebecca Budig and her husband Bob Guiney have decided to call it splits. Bob Guiney climbed to fame on the first season of the reality-series "The Bachelorette," where he was rejected by the series star Trista Rehn (Stutter). Following the rejection, the popular contestant was offered the bachelor position on season four of "The Bachelor." Instead of marrying the woman he proposed to at the end of the series in 2003, Estella Gardinier, he ended up finding romance with established soap star Budig. Budig and Guiney met in early 2003 while Budig began hosting "The Bachelor XYZ" (repeats of the original series) on the ABC Family network....

Contradicting information, bizarre omissions and lazy writing have some left "One Life" wondering what the hell is going on in Llanview in recent weeks and months. God may be all knowing and powerful, however, Mitch Laurence is a close second. The former cult leader and self-proclaimed man of the cloth seemingly has his pulse on anything and everything related to anyone who is anyone in Llanview. He knew about the souring of Rex and Gigi's relationship, and even that Danielle was really Todd Manning's biological daughter. But yet, he has no clue that Stacy's baby's father isn't even Rex. Which makes his claim that the baby will be his "blank slate" all the more ludicrous. Granted, Mitch does have minions strategically placed all over town to...
