Today's Blind Items - Soaps

In honor of All My Children and One Life To Live that got canceled today, I thought I would do a blind from each.

#1 - All My Children - This actor from the show who seems like he has been on there forever, annoys every teenager hired by the show by daily reminding them how many days left they have until they turn 18 and then can date him. He also loves to get handsy.

#2 - One Life To Live - This actress, who has been on the show for a long, long time has always slept with every actor in real life who she was sleeping with on the show. She called it method. I wonder what her husband would call it.

I don't watch either of these shows, but is that Eric Braden guy (I don't know if that's his real or character name!) on AMC?

FS said...

1 is probably Cameron Mathison, it better not be Michael Knight (he's married and my favorite, so don't burst my Tad bubble please).

2. Kassie DePaiva for the second one? She met her husband James on the show, they did some very steamy scenes together, then finally admitted afterwards that they were dating. I think it broke up his marriage at the time.

Yeah, I've been watching both of these shows for decades...

Diane said...

Michael E Knight (not married) and Kassie Wesley - I just emailed AMC to tell them they are dumb-asses

Diane said...

....For canceling the shows

Lady J said...

@ RocketQueen

Eric Braden is on Young and the Restless.

My theatre professsor attend grad school with Walt Wiley and said he was a real "ass" and slept with the head of the dept. So, he would be my guess for the "All My Children".

allyson2626 said...

sorry "attended"

RocketQueen said...

@Lady J - thanks. I did my best! ;)

Mooshki said...

I'm sad that soaps are dying. :( (As I'm sitting here watching Days.)

Reese said...

I'm not even a soap watcher, but I can't believe Erica Kane will be off the air! What a plum role Susan Lucci has had since 1970!

califblondy said...

OMG, ABC cancelled both? I'm not surprised, but I am very sad.

#1 Dr. Joe Martin.

No really it must be either Tad (Michael) or Jackson (Walt). I love both guys, but they're the best bets for being on the show for a long time. I believe Walt is married, but Michael is divorced.

#2 I thought about Dorian, but I think she's divorced. Could it be Saint Vicki?

caralw said...

Oh, that's too bad. Never watched either. I am still sad about As The World Turns. I hope Y&R and B&B keep going or I'll have to learn Spanish and watch telenovelos

caralw said...

Oh, and when Maura West showed up on Y&R, I thought she would just be Carly, but she's doing great as Diane.

MontanaMarriott said...

2. Erika Sleazak or Kassie DePaiva

Me said...

Aww, haven't watched either since college, but use to be a big fan.

I remember my dad was in the hospital near campus, and I would go visit him at lunch and we'd watch AMCs. One day he asked if we could watch something else. I asked why, and he said "because I'm actually starting to care what happens to Erica". LOL, well both shows had a good, long run.

RJ said...

I grew up watching those two soaps, and even though I haven't watched since the late 80s, early 90s, it makes me sad that they are canceling them. Especially given the dreck with which ABC will probably replace them.

Cheryl said...

Ok on OLTL it could be Erika Slezak or Robin Strauss the woman who plays Dorian Lord. Kassie DePavia is super Christian if I'm not mistaken so can't see her for this, but you never know.

Not sure about the AMCperson...but Walt might be a good call

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

How about a GH blind, just to round out the network?

Ellen said...

Isn't Cameron Mathieson the one who was allegedly sleeping with the gossip columnist from Soap Opera Digest? If so, I vote for him for #1.

No idea for #2...

I hope they never cancel B&B because I LOVE that show!!!

Theresa said...

Ditto to the Walt Willey is an ass comment. I work for Disney and during Super Soap weekend, all the stars would be staying at our resort. I was waiting tables in the bar, 9 months pregnant, and every time I would walk behind where Willey was sitting, the asshole would try to trip me! I had some really cool guests there who offered to kick his ass for me. I seriously wouldn't have been able to get back up!

And he is supremely ugly in person! His face matches his attitude. Not to mention every year he had the same broke down, ugly stripper meet him at the bar every year. The bartenders swore he was gay and she was just a cover. I don't know about that, but just know he is a douche of the highest level.

bluebonnetmom said...

This is so the Tad guy on AMC. I can see Dorian as the one on OLTL.

FS said...

I didn't realize that Michael and his wife had split. I still think its Cameron, there's just something about him being young and good looking enough to get away with being such a tool.

lisap515 said...

What a/b Adam/Stuart Chandler (David C.)?

Robert said...

Supposedly these shows are being replaced with "The Chew" ("food from every angle") and "The Revolution" (a "one-stop shop for better living.") Just what the world needs--more cooking and lifestyle programming...!

califblondy said...

Stuart/Adam Chandler has been off the show for a while now.

Cameron's wife and kids appear in a lot in his pieces for GMA, I just don't think it's him.

Tad is very touchy and always kidding around on the show. I still think it's him.

Sorry to hear about Walt Willey, I always liked him. No excuse for acting like that.

Erica Slezak's Father was a famous actor, so I'm thinking it's her with the reference to "method"

HannahPalindrome said...

#1 EWWWWWWW

#2 HAHAHAHA

Maja. With a J. said...

What show is Erica Kane on? She's the only soap caracter I know...*L*

lisap515 said...

God it seems like just last month Adam was still going strong. Blink and you miss it. I love how they have a baby one week and the next month the kid's in high school. time space continuum via soap land.

lisap515 said...

Maja, Erica is on All My Children.

Pookie said...

cancelled? *gasp* WWSLD?

Ice Angel said...

That Old Coot Palmer Cortland LOL!!! Probably Tad the Cad. I wonder if he means date him on the show or in real life? I can see Tad being kind of goofy and trying to make the girls blush that way. Not that it makes it right!

#2-Erika Seeze-ack! LOL! I think in real life their personalities are reversed. I think Robin Strasser is the sweet one and Erika is more outgoing. Dorian dated a lot of young guys, so do you really think they went to Cougar Town with her? My bets are on Dorian.

And I don't think Cassie would have slept with both Todds AND Asa!!!

califblondy said...

Didn't Dorian's real life husband dump her for Lucy Arnaz years ago? I don't know if she ever remarried. Erica on the other hand has been married to the same guy for a jillion years.

Lori said...

I will say Walt Wiley just because I saw him the other day and could. not. believe. how he looks exactly the way I remember him looking 20 years ago. Basically, hot. I could totally see him saying that to the young girls. Although the woman he was with when I saw him definitely was not a looker.

Ann said...

About 20 year's ago I worked with the sister of an actress who was on AMC and she knew I had a crush on Walt W. She told me he likes them young, like underage young (I swear.) So maybe something happened (A lawsuit or almost arrested) and now counting the days 'til they're 18 is an improvement and a way to stay out of jail...

JJ said...

#1 - Walt Wiley

#2 - I wish it were Robin Strasser but I'm afraid it's Erika Slezak which would be sad since she's been married forever and has had many leading men.

I have been watching both shows for more than 30 years. I can't tell you how devastating this is to me. Really.

JoElla said...

Bummer! I haven't really watched AMC or OLTL in forever but kept up on a message forum about what was going on.

I hate to say this.. but this is so Tad and Blair!

slider1964 said...

1:?? but i'm glad he's getting the boot.

2:Robin Strauss

klang said...

@ Me -- that is a very sweet memory!

MadLyb said...

I started watching soaps when I was in grade school when we would visit my grandma. She liked 'Another World', 'The Doctors' and 'Days of Our Lives'. I was hooked through college, but then when Marlena became possessed I just couldn't, LOL. It's still sad to see some of the soaps go. I did watch, 'As The World Turns' way back with my roommate and became acquainted with Meg Ryan and Marisa Tomei through that one.

blankprincess said...

I soooo wanna say Tad the Cad for #1 (did you see his guest appearance on Hot in Cleveland? very much up "his" alley...), but y'all's real-life stories of Walt Willey are giving me the willies! Yuck.

I think #2 is Kassie DePaiva. She's so holier-than-thou with her singing and all, but she *did* participate in breaking up her husband Max's previous marriage. Only she, Erika Slezak, and Robin Strauss would qualify as being on "for a long, long time" right? I just hope it's not Starr LOL!

Caroline said...

@Me- That's awesome! I used to watch Coronation Street with my dad.

heatherlynn said...

I grew up watching these with my mom, and all through college when I didn't have a day job. I always like to check in when I'm home during the day....I'll be sad when they aren't there anymore.

I thought of Tad first, but now I think Jack. I thought of Vicki first also....

libbyBH said...

I watched AMC/OLTL growing up (until high school) and then planned my college classes around Y and R.

And ANOTHER part of my childhood dies.
*sigh*

elspeth said...

Theresa -- Your story, I'm SO sorry! WW takes "sadistic" SOB to another level of meaning. No adult tries to trip anyone, but an obviously pregnant woman??? WTF?

*girl said...

@MadLyb: The possession was my end for Days as well. I just... couldn't.

But growing up watching Days with my mother will always be a great memory.

Jesse D said...

*girl, I too watched Days with my mom, as well as Another World, Santa Barbara and another one called "Texas". I grew up with those shows.

Rita said...

So has anyone dared to suggest Erica Kane for #2? She sure has been on for a very long time, and had many-many-many-many, many on-screen love interests.

Rickatoo said...

Rita, #2 is OLTL, "Erica Kane: is AMC. no guesses, but I think it sux that they cancelled AMC a year (?) after forcing the whole cast & crew to move to LA from NY. that being said... how long before Erica marries Luke?

nunaurbiz said...

Time to start pitching "All My Children: The Movie" and "One Life to Live" The Movie" to producers!!!! :-D

Ol Cranky said...

@ Caroline - and Corrie's still going strong (it and Bill Roache just broke a record this year)

Anna said...

The character Norah has been on OLTL for a couple of decades. Ericka
Sleazac looked kind of matronly even back in the day when she played a teen jealous of her sister. I'm not either the other two Annas and it won't let me change my name.
