From re-runs of soap classics "Dallas," "Dynasty," "Another World," "Port Charles," and "Falcon Crest," to the launches of original series "SoapCenter," "Soap Talk" and "General Hospital: Night Shift," SOAPnet was defined as the "new way to watch soaps" for much of its near 14-year run. With just 2 days left before SOAPnet is no more, we thought it would be a great opportunity to look back at the inaugural year of a network that gave diehard soap fans their own platform to shout with glee…
Celebrating its 12th year online, Soap Opera Network is currently experiencing its biggest year on record in terms of page views and unique visitors. This year we've been able to provide exclusive insight into the world of soaps while bringing readers inside the minds of some of their favorite characters and actors featured on "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless." As we come off of the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we're…
What a difference a year makes, huh "One Life to Live" fans? Looking back through the Soap Opera Network archives, I happened upon the last column that I had written. It was November 30, 2011, nearly two weeks after Prospect Park made the now infamous decision to scrap their plans to revive "OLTL" online, just five days after the soap wrapped production on its ABC run. And now here we are just over a year later, with that plan seemingly resurrected and "One Life," along with sister soap "All…
Last summer I was lucky enough to be included as an interviewee in the new soap opera themed documentary appropriately titled "Soap Life," which follows the life, and possible death, of daytime soap operas. I can't believe I forgot all about it and didn't realize it until this morning!

"One Life to Live" gets 'canceled' for the second time in seven months as Prospect Park breaks the hearts of the show's loyal fanbase.
Prospect Park decides to move forward with plans for "One Life to Live," while delaying the launch of "All My Children" for the time being. But why the sudden change of plans?
With "One Life to Live" nearing the end of its run on ABC Daytime, the list of returning former cast members is increasing. And, while the list is impressive, it is lacking one important ingredient for long-time fans of the soap.
"One Life to Live" parodies "Look Who's Talking," but does it mean the end of Llanview as we know it?
"All My Children's" television run comes to an end, "The Chew" debuts in its place, and "One Life to Live" asks fans to sample Ford's wiener.
"All My Children's" replacement show "The Chew" debuts today, just three days after "AMC" aired its final episode on ABC, and I can't help myself in wishing it would just go away. No, it isn't the show or what it is all about. In a perfect world I'd care to watch it from time to time, after all we all have to cook good and healthy meals don't we?
