Art imitates life as "One Life to Live" does what it does best by poking fun at itself for an upcoming storyline. Beginning next month, the show's once popular soap-within-a-soap, "Fraternity Row," gets canceled due to sagging ratings, leading one loyal Llanview fan to take drastic action to save her soap. The plot mirrors "OLTL's" own predicament, having been dumped by ABC earlier this year.
Ilene Kristen didn't debut as Roxy Balsom on ABC's "One Life to Live" until November 2001, but the actress did learn she had the job on September 10 of that year and began filming on September 27. Ten years later the actress reflects on the days after learning she had gotten the job, and what she is looking forward to when the soap transitions to Prospect Park in the coming months.
