The Paris, Texas crew is back – with David Vickers!!
Double YAY!
Everyone loves Tuc Watkins as David Vickers – because he’s just so darn funny.
And entertaining!
And he never fails to put the pizzazz in One Life To Live.
Coupled with the comedic talents of Moe Stubbs (John Rue ) and Noelle Ortiz (January LaVoy), David Vickers shines as a bus boy at the Bon Jour Cafe.

And then Vickers proceeds to tell us how he ended up at the Bon Jour, which goes from funny to funnier!

In my opinion, the Paris, Texas storyline was the most entertaining thing to come to OLTL in years.
And trust me, I’ve been watching OLTL for 35-and-change years.
I started watching back when I was in high school in good old Trumbull, CT….
Which brings me to my “small world” story.
LaVoy grew up in Trumbull, too.
Small world!
And her first acting gig was at a local community theatre called the Polka Dot Playhouse in Bridgeport, CT.
Just so happens that I did some acting there too – back in the day after graduating from college.
Really small world!
I have always like Noelle, especially when it became apparent that she and Moe had feelings for each other…..They are just so cute together!
And I also loved her loyalty to Viki and to Gigi during the hostage situation at the Bon Jour. Noelle took care of Shane when Gigi was arrested for aiding and abetting Marcie.
Loyalty is an important trait that seems to be lacking in today’s society.
But Noelle – she is loyal.
And now that I’ve discovered that her portrayer and I are from the same hometown and have trod the same boards – well, I’m even more fond of her.
Getting back to Vickers and the Bon Jour….I can’t wait to see today’s eppy.
Especially since Friday’s cliffhanger ended with Vickers spotting Natalie and Jared kissing!
It’s particularly scandalous because Jared is masquerading as her uncle – and a Buchanan heir.
You see, Jared and Natalie know the big secret – that Vickers is, in fact, the long, lost Buchanan.
Not Jared.
So, I’m thinking, the secret is thisclose to coming out.

    You are so right about the chemistry between Moe & Noelle. They are just TOOOOO cute! And wow, Tuc Watkins is an amazing actor. When “David” was telling the story of what had happened to him since we last saw him in Paris, TX and how he went to Hollywood and got a part in a TV show…I almost expected the part to be the role of the gay neighbor on “Desperate Housewives”. How funny would that have been??? As it was, it was pretty funny anyway. And the LOOK on David’s face when he peered out of the kitchen and saw Natalie kissing her “uncle” was absolutely priceless!! Oh, and he’s pretty cute in a hairnet…and what about those guns he has for arms?? Whew!! It’s gonna be a hot time in Llanview!

    Hey MountainMama – Moe and Noelle are *the* cutest couple, kinda like Max and Diane on GH…I just love those two! I hope Moe and Noelle are here to stay for awhile.
    And, yeah, the look on Tuc’s face *was* priceless. I almost posted a photo of him in that hairnet…That in itself was a riot!

    I like Moe/Noelle too. Wish they could be onscreen more but Llanview’s already got one diner lol. They are great together.
    I’m really looking forward to David finding out he’s a Buchanan & Natalie/Jared stopping this farce.
