Ummmmm….Did anyone really like the Mendorra storyline on One Life To Live?
Because I didn’t.
I liked the fact that it brought back Andrea Evans as Tina Roberts.
But other than that, I wasn’t really crazy about it.
I HATED the fact that Talia (BethAnn Bonner) was forced to marry the sinister Jonas Chamberlain (Kevin Spirtas).

Although, I must say, Talia looked absolutely BEE-UTIFUL!
Too bad, it was wasted on that creep, Jonas.

But the thing I hated most was that Antonio Vega (Kamar de los Reyes) was nearly stabbed to death by Jonas and then forced to leave Talia there.

Of course, now he’s going back to rescue her, which can’t come too soon for me!
I know this is a soap and there’s supposed to be a certain amount of …..well….drama.
But, come on!
Antonio has already HAD enought drama and heartache to last him five lifetimes.
Really.
I think the poor guy has endured way too much already.
The Jess/Tess mess (which he stuck by her through all of that) and that was followed by Jess’s cheating on him with Nash….That, alone, was enough pain for one lifetime.
Talk about unlucky in love.
Antonio is the poster child for that saying.
Now, when he finally found real love with Talia – boom, she’s taken away.
Not only that, but now Antonio finds out that Talia is the daughter of his mortal enemy, the oh-so-evil Carlo Hesser (Thom Christopher).
I am glad that the Mendorra storyline brought Christopher back to the Llanview canvas.
He is such a wonderful actor and I just love to watch him play evil – a refined kind of evil.
But, really, let’s get Antonio in there, rescue Talia and give the guy a little happiness….
Please?

Why is it that when Antonio Vega finds happiness on One Life To Live it only lasts about five minutes?
I was really liking the fact that he and Talia Sahid finally got together – and now I’m really hating the fact that he is getting all angry and jealous over Talia’s working relationship with John McBain (Michael Easton).
Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE John McBain….And, yeah, he hasn’t found happiness either.
In fact, quite the opposite. McBain has ended up with heartache from any of his relationships. But that’s a topic for another day.
For the most part, I’ve liked what Ron Carlivati has done with the soap since taking over the head writing duties last fall.
But I’m HATING the way he is making Antonio angry again.
Antonio and Talia

Antonio (Kamar de los Reyes) has a gentle and kind side to him, particularly towards his daughter, Jamie.
So why, after Antonio survived that awful Jessica/Nash cheating fiasco and finally gets together with Talia (BethAnn Bonner) is he reverting back to that nasty Santi anger.
And, of course, that wacko, dirty police commissioner Lee Ramsey (Hunt Block) is behind all of this nonsense.
Ramsey is the new Spencer Truman.
I say, get rid of Ramsey!
Check out this video of Antonio confronting Talia in the police station.

I implore you, Ron, please give Antonio and Talia a chance.
Give us back the nice Antonio!
