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.
Click here to go to her website and then click on the events link at the top of the page for all the details you need to attend her “Mystical and Magical” evening. Or e-mail amcfan929@yahoo.com for reservations or more info.
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.

Would someone give me a good reason to watch One Life To Live – please?
It’s not that I’m not watching it, because I am.
It’s my favorite and always has been my favorite.
But the truth is – I’m just not that into it right now.
What the heck has happened?
Head Writer Ron Carlivati started things on a high note when he took over the head writing duties last fall.
The Paris, Texas storyline – in my opinion – was brilliant in the way he little-by-little wove in the Llanview characters until finally – both worlds collided.
I absolutely loved watching Viki’s (Erika Slezak) escape from her life as an heiress/newspaper publisher to become a waitress.
It was so much fun to watch.
I couldn’t wait to get home from work to watch it.
And now – quite the opposite.
I don’t like the this whole attack on BE storyline and Clint turning into Asa. Clint has always been a good guy and that’s the way I like him.
I’m also not feeling the chemistry between Clint (Jerry Ver Dorn) and Nora (Hillary B. Smith) as a couple. I like both actors, but not as love interests together.
I’m not interested in the Rex/Adriana wedding – especially because the Shane paternity secret is bound to come out in time to stop it.
I really hate the way Adriana has become a total B****! Although, I guess I can understand her not being too nice to Rex’s old girlfriend, Gigi, who he seems to be with every time she turns around.
I’m not liking Starr’s teen pregnancy storyline, although Kristen Alderson (Starr) and Brittany Underwood (Langston) have been turning in some heavy-duty performances. They should get a young actress Emmy nomination for this.
And the whole Todd anger thing has to go. I love Trevor St. John when he plays the nice Todd. But lately, Todd has been too over-the-top.

The scene the other day, threatening Cole, gave me the creeps. I guess that was the idea.
But I just can’t get over the irony of his anger. After all, he raped Cole’s mother, Marty.
And what’s up with the Nash/Sarah road trip and sharing the suite together?
Don’t get it.
Are they going to have Nash cheat on Jessica now that he cheated with Jessica when she was married to Antonio? Don’t even wanna go there….
And speaking of angry Antonio, there’s something not right about him catching John and Talia in a motel room.
Sorry. I’m not buying it.
Talia was crazy about Antonio and she saw him through the Nash/Jessica situation. I don’t think she would cheat on him.
And John McBain? It’s not his style to stab a friend in the back.
So there’s more to this story, but, honestly, it’s just not that interesting.
It may be some kind of plan to take down dirty police commish Lee Ramsey.
Taking him down. I’m all for that. I can’t stand his character – or I should say lack of it.
And just who is he keeping up in the upstairs room?
Hmm….
Okay. That just might be one reason to watch.
Another reason to watch is the imminent return of fan favorite Andrea Evans as Tina Roberts.
One thing’s for sure.
Tina will shake things up.
