THIS WEEK ON: ALL MY CHILDREN

Frankie admits to Taylor that he doesn’t really want to go back to Iraq, a notion she finds difficult to comprehend. Taylor is haunted by a disturbing memory. Erica doesn’t get what she wants from Kendall, Jack or even Adam. JR becomes suspicious of Adam’s relationships with both Annie and Pete. Angie turns to Randi for help with Frankie. Randi asks Frankie not to leave her. Tad becomes suspicious of Jesse’s behavior. Amanda asks Taylor how she feels about Jake on Friday, September, 12.

The Inside Story: Risky Business

Josh fears Zach is going to make him pay with his life after he confesses he stole millions from the casino. Kendall tries to intercede on Josh’s behalf but Zach refuses to back down. Kendall uses her pepper spray to disarm Zach’s goons, allowing Josh the chance to escape. As a terrified Josh arrives at Erica’s door, Kendall issues Zach an ultimatum. Erica heads out to confront Zach who continues to ignore Kendall’s pleas. On Tuesday, September 9 Kendall finds Josh at Erica’s and begins to realize how broken a man he’s become. Zach fully intends to make Josh pay for what he’s done despite Erica’s protest. Upon arriving at Erica’s suite, Zach and Erica learn that Kendall and Ryan helped Josh disappear. Ryan takes a job with Zach overseeing the casinos as restitution for helping Josh escape. Zach is fed up with Kendall ignoring the life she has with him. Zach and Kendall make love on his desk. Zach and Kendall begin to take steps in fixing their relationship. Zach instructs his minions to call off the search for Josh.

A Closer Look: Playing with Fire

Ryan’s straight talk doesn’t go over well with the misses. Simmering from her hubby’s rejection, Annie stages it so that Pete accidentally bruises her arms and later claims to Babe, Kendall and Greenlee that Ryan caused the bruises. Babe seems to buy Annie’s claim, but Kendall is a tougher sell. Greenlee’s death becomes an unhinged Annie’s main mission. Annie sneaks out of the mansion and shows up at Greenlee’s penthouse, on Wednesday, September 10, with Adam’s gun in hand. Annie prepares to shoot an oblivious Greenlee when she’s suddenly hit with abdominal pain. Despite being in great pain, Annie manages to sneak out of Greenlee’s place and back to the mansion undetected. Meanwhile, Ryan heads over to the mansion to confront Annie after being served with a restraining order. Ryan’s anger turns to concern when he realizes Annie’s in bad shape.

Treadway Brings Game to Llanview

Thursday, August 28, 2008 11:24 PM EDT | By Scotty Gore


(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Ty Treadway returns to Llanview to host a new game show starring Rex Balsom.

Psychopath Colin MacIver may be dead, but that won’t stop his spirit from invading the inner thoughts of Rex Balsom. Cashing in on the success of Ty Treadway’s new game show “Crosswords,” “One Life to Live” brings their former star back to town as what else–a game show host.

This fall, Rex’s past comes back to haunt him as he lies on the operating table after being shot. As he drifts in and out of conscious, he dreams he is a panelist on a game show entitled “So You Think You Can Be Shane Morasco’s Father” hosted by the late Colin MacIver.

The dream, which is expected to last for two days, will expose Rex’s fears and concerns about being a good father to 10-year-old Shane, whom he only recently discovered was his. It will also serve to highlight his past misdeeds and how he has changed since arriving in Llanview.

Treadway portrayed the mentally unstable Colin on “OLTL” from 2000-2001. After Colin met his demise, Treadway returned as his twin brother Troy later that same year. After developing an obsession with Nora Buchanan (just as Colin did), Troy went insane and was sentenced to life in Statesville in 2003. In early 2004, Treadway exited “OLTL” a second time.

The dream sequence scenes, which were taped on the set of ABC’s “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” will air on October 1st and 2nd.

There is also talk of Jessica Morris may reprise her role as Jennifer Rappaport (albeit in spirit form) sometime this fall for an episode or two in scenes involving her ex-lover Rex. Morris portrayed the role of Lindsay and Sam’s daughter from 2001-2005.

“One Life to Live” air Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — New “All My Children” Head Writer, Charles Pratt Jr., shakes up canvas with a natural disaster hitting Pine Valley.

Just in time for the all important November sweeps period, ABC’s “All My Children” is looking to entice new viewers with a major tornado that will hit Pine Valley in October. Soap Opera Network can also confirm, as reported by TV Guide Canada‘s Nelson Branco, that two major characters will die during the tornado and that there will be a number of guest appearances from past “All My Children” cast members.

A tornado last hit the fictional Pennsylvania town in 1994, when Julia Santos (Sydney Penny) received a scar after a chandelier fell on her during a party held at the Chandler mansion in honor of Adam (David Canary) and Gloria (Teresa Blake).

Stay tuned to Soap Opera Network as further storyline details become available.

    My View of Llanview: August 15 Edition

    Thursday, August 28, 2008 9:49 PM | By Scotty Gore


    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Erika Slezak talks family love–’70s style.

    Wow…this may be a new record for me…I’m nearly two weeks late with this column. However, there is a valid reason for that; the past few weeks have been very hectic for me. Being a City Commissioner, I am responsible for helping my small hometown prepare for our annual Honeyfest. It is a big deal here, especially since it became the “Kentucky’s Official State Honey Festival” in 2006. Now in its 14th year, the Clarkson Honeyfest has grown by leaps and bounds. More information is available at www.honeyfest.com.

    In addition, the past two weeks have also taken a somber tone for my loved ones and me. Three recent deaths have hit too close to home for me. First there was the husband of my second cousin and good friend/co-worker who fell asleep at the wheel after working a twelve-hour night shift to support their families and died in a car accident. His friend left behind a wife and kids, as did my second cousin’s husband. In fact, the loving son he left behind will be thirteen next month. My heart and prayers go out to him and his mom. And then my great aunt died in neighboring Indiana. While I wasn’t particularly close to her, the death hit my grandmother rather hard, and my mom, my aunts, and my uncle worried and concerned about her.

    So I apologize again for the lateness of this column, and for the fact it will only consist of a representing of an old “OLTL” related article. I hope and pray that the August 30th column will be posted on time but, as I found out in the past few weeks, one can never be sure.

    The following article appeared in the May 1972 edition of Daytime TV. Written by R. Marian Rose, it is entitled “Erika Slezak’s Fond Memories of Family Love.” The article sheds light on Erika Slezak, her family, and her home life. Enjoy.

    Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord) lets you know every chance she gets, that she adores her family. Right now the family is a little scattered. Her dad, Walter Slezak, and mom, Joanna, live in Switzerland; her sister Ingrid, is married to a doctor and lives in Canada with her two sons; brother Leo is now in college but spent time with Erika last summer. However, Switzerland is not too far away for any of the Slezak offspring and, whenever they decide to go home, off they go to Mom and Dad.

    Born in California on an August 5, Erika spent most of her young life attending boarding schools. They were not the kind that kept you from your family, though. She went to the Convent of Scared Heart in Greenwich, Conn., but didn’t like it there too well so she transferred to the Convent of Scared Heart in Philadelphia.

    “I like the Pennsylvania school better because the girls were much nicer and the school had a pleasant atmosphere. I was always worried about being accepted by the other girls because I was younger than most. The school was a five days boarding school and the family was together on weekends.”

    When did Erika first decide she wanted to act?

    “I can’t recall a time when I didn’t want to act. As a child, I knew I’d act, but of course, I didn’t realize that it was difficult. When I was in my sophomore year in high school, Dad talked to me about training for a career in acting. At that time, Mom stayed out of the discussion, but today I’m more nervous when my mother in the audience because she’s very objective. “Dad goes to pieces when he sees me on stage. One thing he did for me at that time was let me have no illusions about the acting profession. He explained that it was going to be harder for me because I had a famous father. I would have to prove myself more than others and, as usual, he was right.

    “All the fame did for me was get me in to audition, but once inside, I was on my own. I knew most of the producers because I had met them when I was a child, and I had to go through the charade of being introduced all over again. One thing Dad did ask of me was: ‘If you discover you have no talent, get out of the business. They’ll be twice as hard on you.’ He also added: ‘If I feel that you have no talent, I’ll tell you.'”

    So for that hasn’t happened. And, it probably never will, because Erika is talented and has worked hard over the years preparing for her career. She attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, England, and was a member of the Milwaukee Repertory Company for three seasons. During those three years, she was a leading lady in everything from Chekov to Noel Coward.

    “It was a marvelous experience; also rewarding. Theatre for me is most fascinating because it’s before an audience but I find daytime television wonderful, too. I’m glad I did repertory work first, though, because if you’re thrown into daytime television too quickly, it’s extremely hard. In repertory work, you’re given time to polish a performance. With time and experience, you find the easy way to do things. Everything I learned in repertory work can be applied to my daytime work and I find that it makes the load easier to carry.”

    How does she feel about being on a daytime serial?

    “I love it! I get a little peeved too because too many people think daytime actors are secondary people, but that’s not true. Some of your finest actors are on daytime shows. I’m enjoying everything about the show. I love my colleagues and the professional atmosphere in which I work.”

    Erika, as beautiful as she is talented, is tall, slim, blonde-haired and blue eyed, so it was only natural the next question be about her social life. Is there anyone special on the scene?

    “I have many friends but no one special. Actually, I don’t want to marry yet. I prefer to wait until I’m settled down. I enjoy being on my own and because of my work; my schedule keeps me from a more active social life. When I know I’m performing, I get to bed by 11 p.m. the latest because I have to be up early and in top notch shape.

    “I guess I can also say that I’m waiting to find a man with whom I can have the same relationship that my parents have. Daddy never went anywhere that he didn’t take my mother along. Many times, the children also went. But he never was away from any of us for more than a week. Marriage is not easy and whatever my parents have together, they’ve worked hard for. I want the same kind of family life that I grew up in. uses that’s the European upbringing in me. One thing I still enjoy is watching my father and brother, Leo who’s 23 now kiss when they meet. Why shouldn’t they? They’re father and son, and showing love and affection for each other doesn’t make them less masculine. I rather like it myself.

    How does Erika feels about the Women Liberation Movement?

    “A great deal of it is legitimate but, in some instances, they’ve gone too far. The arts such as acting, singing and ballet really don’t require Women’s Lib to help them. These are fields that equal pay is a standard practice and almost every play has love somewhere in its theme, so male and female, both, are required. The publishing field, secretaries and nurses need Women’s Lib to help them establish themselves on an equal basis with the men. I think one thing that the movement has done is call attention to the fact that women are very capable in the business world. Too many people have been led to believe that a woman leaves he mind at home with her family when she reports for work. That is definitely not true. The movement also called the public’s attention to the valuable role women are playing and can play in politics.”

    What about the world situation?

    “What can I say except to elaborate on the fact that the whole world seems to have been governed, since time began, by men fighting. War is a single, predominant, force in history. I don’t feel the Vietnam War will stop in communism. The original policy was not to interfere, but it turned into just that – interference – because of politics. When we leave the country, the people will do just as they please, anyway. When our young people grow up, the world will have to change. And, if the youth of today maintain their ideals, the world will be a better place by far. They are more alert at a younger age and that’s good.”

    It was on this note that the interview indeed – a most enjoyable two hours spent with a lovely, talented young woman. It was also very heartening to hear a young woman speak about her family with such love and devotion. Her eyes lit up every time she spoke of home (and that is wherever her parents happened to be living).

    Well, that’s all for this edition of the column. I hope you enjoyed this edition of the column. Have a safe and wonderful Labor Day holiday weekend. See you again on August 30th.

    And until next time remember, we only have “One Life to Live” …..

    (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — While CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” turned 35 years-old in March 2008, its 20th Anniversary on French television is a time to really celebrate.

    The show is heading to Paris, France in October to film on-location scenes for an upcoming storyline involving the likes of Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow), Sharon Abbott (Sharon Case), Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) and Victor Newman (Eric Braeden). No other actors will be attending, according to a spokeswoman for Sony Pictures Television, producers of the soap. While specific storyline information won’t be available for a number of weeks, the first couple of scenes are expected to begin airing during the all important November Sweeps period in the US. This will be the first time the show has ever filmed in France.

    Davidson’s inclusion is surprising as the actress and her character currently work for the worlds most watched daytime soap opera, “The Bold and the Beautiful.” Will Ashley finally find romance in the city of love?

    The location shoot precedes the shows upcoming 20th anniversary on French TV Network TF1, which began airing “The Young and the Restless,” aka: “Les Feux de l’Amour” in France, on August 16, 1989. The series debuted March 26, 1973 on CBS.

    On the Web: The Young and the Restless and Les Feux de l’Amour.

    “The Young and the Restless” airs Weekdays on CBS. Anytime on CBS.com. Check local listings.


    • The Young and the Restless

      Tuesday, August 26, 2008 7:24 AM ET | By Errol Lewis


      (SoapOperaNetwork.com) — The little girl that grew up on ABC’s “General Hospital” is not so little after all. In fact, she’s the toughest thing to hit ABC since “NYPD Blue.” Nathan Fillion (“One Life to Live”) is also jumping onto the police beat.

      Amber Tamblyn, 25, who portrayed Emily Bowen-Quartermaine on “GH” from 1995-2001, has found herself with an “Unusual” dramedy that the ABC Entertainment Division (that is primetime tv for us daytime folk) thinks is the next great procedural. The network has given a mid-season order to “The Unusuals,” which stars Tamblyn as Casey Shraeger, an NYPD vice detective posing as a Lincoln Tunnel hooker before being transferred to the homicide division. Casey quickly realizes that not only does everyone in her new department have a distinct sense of humor but everyone also has their own dirty little secret.

      The series also stars Jeremy Renner, Terry Kinney, Kai Lennox, Adam Goldberg, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Joshua Close and Harrold Perrineau.

      After leaving “General Hospital,” Tamblyn got a starring role in the short-lived CBS drama “Joan of Arcadia,” in which her character talked to god.

      ABC has also given the go-ahead to Nathan Fillion’s “Castle,” in which he plays Nick Castle. Nick is a handsome writer who seems to have it all – fame, fans, and females at his fingertips. When Nick kills off his premiere character in his popular book series, a “real-life” copycat killer starts taking scenarios from the books and staging murders in the “real world.”

      Molly Quinn, Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Susan Sullivan, Stana Katic, and Monet Mazur also star.

      Fillion recently appeared in ABC’s “Desperate Housewives” as Dana Delaney’s husband. “Housewives” is televisions most watched drama series.

      “Unusuals” is a production of Sony Pictures Television. “Castle” comes from ABC Studios, a division of the Walt Disney Company.
