ONE LIFE TO LIVE: TEASERS
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Saundra Santiago becomes the latest “One Life to Live” seldom used recurring cast member to finally getting some much needed screen time when her onscreen persona, Carlotta Vega, interacts with a familiar face at the family diner, and a few other new and familiar faces pop up in Llanview.
On Thursday, September 8, Carlotta returns when Cristian (David Fumero) seeks a little motherly advice about his future. As we previously reported, Fumero is leaving “One Life” before the show wraps production in November. Santiago taped her scenes on July 14.
In other news, Helmar Augustus Cooper may be returning as Louie, the homeless man who pulled Todd Manning (Roger Howarth) out of the river last month. At the very least, look for the drifter and part-time police informant to be a hot topic of conversation around the LPD water cooler the week of September 5.
Patrick Allen Cole returns as Rodi’s bartender/manager Jeff (now AKA Adam) on Wednesday, September 21.
Nick Choksi (Vimal) has posted on Facebook that “On Thursday’s [September 1] episode of ‘One Life To Live,’ everything seems to be hunky dory in the Patel household, but a secret will lead to a suspicion which will lead to…inevitable mayhem. I also get to square off with the man who cuckolded me…for about a second…which is the most i can handle. ABC @ 2pm.”
Edixon Caridad appears as a Guard in several episodes in mid and later September.
Look for Victor’s secretary at the Sun to continue to appear on screen during the next few weeks.
Barret Helms (Baz) tweets to a fan that the reason he is leaving “One Life to Live” so early is a result of “Baaad timing.”
For those asking about the song playing during Viki and Dorian’s farewell montage during Thursday’s episode was “Moments” by Josh Auer. That was not the first time the song as been used by the show, however, and was heard most recently in this promo from May 12, featuring John and Natalie.
And a walk on role on “One Life to Live” was among the items auctioned off at the Miracle House 11th Annual “Cocktails By the Bay” charity event in Sag Harbor, New York earlier this month. Miracle House “provides temporary housing, meals and advocacy to caregivers and patients coming to the city for critical medical treatment,” according to its website. Click here to learn more.
Entertainment Weekly’s InsideTV posted your first look at the cast of E!’s new reality series “Dirty Soap.”
Premiering Sunday, September 25 at 10:00 PM ET on E! “Dirty Soap” follows the real lives of daytime’s hottest stars including Kelly Monaco (“General Hospital”), Nadia Bjorlin (“Days of Our Lives”), Kirsten Storms (“General Hospital”), Farah Fath (“One Life To Live”), John-Paul Lavoisier (referred to as “JP” in the reality series; “One Life To Live”), and Galen Gering (“Days of Our Lives”). Also appearing in the soap will be Gering’s wife of 11 years, Jenna, who can be seen at top left.
Noticeable scenery, outside of the cast wearing some interesting attire in what appears to be a hallway, include a bar soap inside a small puddle of water, a purse that looks to have lost some items such as lipstick, a cell phone and one other unmentionable.
For a look at what you can expect from the series, here’s the official trailer:

Day-To-Day Ratings – HH/Total Viewers
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “One Life to Live” Episode Recap – Friday, August 26, 2011.
IT HAPPENED TODAY…
Blair discovers the gun is missing from the safe. Todd and Victor argue bitterly. Bo, Téa, and Blair arrive before one of them draws a gun. Bo separates the men. Téa and Blair both reel from the Victor and Todd revelations. The women try to talk sense into the men, but we see their peacekeeping has fallen on deaf ears.
Shane asks Brody to help him make Victor and Jack pay for what they did to Gigi.
Rex is mystified to discover that Gigi’s death-date has been scratched out. Natalie arrives and he probes what it means. He sees it as a sign. Natalie tries to dissuade him from this, but he won’t budge. Bo is reluctant when Rex plans to have Gigi’s grave exhumed but ultimately agrees to go through with it in the hope that it will finally answer Rex’s questions.
The grave is exhumed and the coffin opened. Shane shows up and is horrified by what he finds. At EOD Rex arms himself with a gun. Kim stands over Gigi’s grave and makes a few cryptic comments.
On the Next One Life to Live…
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Even though Jessica Brennan (Bree Williamson) appears to be fully integrated, that doesn’t mean the end of the line for her infamous alter ego Tess. As we previously reported, fans can expect yet another visit from Llanview’s least favorite alternate personality soon. However, it may not be in quite the way you think.
With an increasingly unsympathetic Jessica maintaining control, Ford (David A. Gregory) is at his wit’s end over the loss of his beloved Tess. However, just as he is about to give up on ever getting her back on Wednesday, September 7, he conjures up a vision of Tess who urges not to give up on their love and chastises him for not fighting for her hard enough.
But will he open up to Jessica or will someone from the past interfere with his plans? Tune in to find out. Though be forewarned, Gregory has listed his September airdates as only the 6, 7, 21, and 27.
Last Friday, I had stated on my personal Twitter account that I had been hearing reports that “All My Children” and “One Life to Live” might be heading to Bravo as a part of a cable deal with Prospect Park, which is reportedly looking for a cable network to supplement costs for its online network debuting in January 2012. Although it’s taken longer than expected to get an official response from Bravo, a spokesperson has stated that “these are all just rumors.”
If you happened to be tuning into “One Life to Live” or “General Hospital” today and you lived in New York City or its surrounding areas, you may have noticed no shows! That’s because both shows were preempted by WABC, the nations most watched station and ABC’s flagship station in New York. If you don’t have SOAPnet or access to the ABC.com Full Episode Player (if you are reading this you should), then you are out of luck when it comes to viewing today’s episodes.
According to a station representative, due to coverage of Hurricane Irene, all ABC broadcasts will be preempted so the station can bring viewers wall to wall coverage of the upcoming hurricane scheduled to hit the New York/New Jersey coast by 9:00 PM Saturday evening. The station will not resume broadcasting ABC programming until an unspecified time tomorrow or until time warrants.
Today’s interruption for “One Life to Live” in particular is just the latest in a series of interruptions/preemptions that have occurred this week alone and will likely impact the series greatly when Nielsen Media Research releases ratings data covering the week of August 22-26, 2011 next week.
If you do have SOAPnet and/or access to the ABC.com Full Episode Player, “One Life to Live” and “General Hospital” will be available in their entirety as scheduled.

OLTL ALERTS: WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 5, 2011
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — If you are like most “One Life to Live” fans on the east coast, you are probably wondering what scenes you missed during the six minute “technical glitch” which caused scenes from the previous day’s episode of the soap to be aired nearly mid-day through Thursday’s episode. In case you missed the corrected airing of the episode with the missing scenes in tact on either SOAPnet and ABC.com, Soap Opera Network is ready to show you what you missed.
The issue had been rectified in time for the Mountain and Pacific time zone broadcasts (Central time zone feeds off of the east coast feed directly) and the original episode aired as it was originally intended on SOAPnet and ABC.com.
So,whether it be Dorian’s farewell scenes with Viki, John and Natalie remembering the past, Clint and Kim getting caught up on recent events, or Brody asking Victor if he will keep his secret about Liam’s true paternity, you can see the “lost” scenes below:
