Was anyone else dumbfounded by the ending of the Bo/Lindsay wedding on One Life To Live?
I couldn’t believe it!
The SAME EXACT ending as their previous attempt at matrimony many years earlier…Nora (Hillary B. Smith) dropped a bombshell revelation that Lindsay (Catherine Hickland) lied (again) and Bo walked away because he couldn’t take her lying (again).
I mean, yeah, we all saw the Nora interference coming a mile away.
But what I didn’t expect was for Bo (Robert S. Woods) to walk away this time.
I expected that he was a more forgiving Bo and would throw the letter from R.J. at Nora and continue the ceremony.
But that didn’t happen.
And I can only ask – WHY????
I have loved the way Lindsay’s softer, gentler side has emerged since the brutal death of her daughter, Jen.
Hickland has really brought another dimension to Lindsay in recent years. Especially poignant is the lasting bond between Lindsay, Marcie and Rex over Jen’s death. Those relationships have been wonderful to watch.
And now we’re hearing via some soap insider reports that now that Lindsay has pleaded guilty to Spencer’s murder, she will remain in prison indefinitely.
Translation: we’re not going to be seeing Hickland on our screens anytime soon once she is sentenced and sent to prison.
Soap Opera Weekly reports that Hickland will be “off the canvas for the foreseeable future because no final decision has been made regarding Lindsay’s fate.”
And the C.H.E.R.I. initiative, a fan-based initiative that promotes Hickland and four other OLTL women vets, is mounting an active campaign to keep Hickland on our T.V. screens.
Denise Balcarcel, founder of C.H.E.R.I., is asking that all Hickland fans call the OLTL hotline in support of keeping her visible on the show. The number for OLTL’s comment line is 212-456-3338, and it’s a 24/7 voice mail system.
“My goal is to get as many people who are fans of Catherine’s as possible phoning in, because we can make a greater impact if these calls come in during the same timeframe,” Balcarcel said.
Another thing that I think is really great about Hickland – she gives back to the community big time.
Particularly close to her heart – animal rights.
It’s a cause close to mine as well.
If you can get to New York City on Aug. 16, then you can meet this wonderful actress up close and personal at her annual fan event from 6-10 p.m. at Connolly’s Pub and Restaurant. Space is limited and the setting is small in order for fans to have some quality time with Hickland.
And the beauty of all this is that proceeds from the event go to Cat Haven Wild Animal Park.
For $80 you get dinner, gift bags, one-on-one time with Hickland AND you’re helping out a great cause.

If you want to double your fan experience, Hickland will be attending the OLTL Fan Club Party earlier that day at the Marriott Marquis Hotel on Broadway.
Actually, you can meet a whole bunch of your OLTL favorites at the fan club party as well.

And don’t forget to call the OLTL hotline.
I want to see Lindsay on my T.V. screen for many years to come.
