One Life to Live Weekly Blog!
Gigi lets Adriana have it! (Soaps.com)
Welcome to Amy’s
“One Life in a Week!” from October 13-17!
This week on One Life to Live was not only filled with surprises, it had a bit of comedic edge to it as well. Before we get on with the show, so to speak, for those who haven’t been able to see David Fumero (Cristian Vega) in his new film, I received an advanced DVD from the director and have written a review in the News Room, as well as included a video clip with a sneak peek of the film! By watching the clip, you’ll recognize David’s long hair and will now know why he was wearing it so long on the soap a while ago!
Viki returns home and Jared finds a new one!
“If we’re down here forever,” Natalie says to Jared. “I’m okay now because you’re here with me…” Forget the fact that they’ll probably starve to death, but at least they’ll be together! While I hope Erika Slezak (Viki Davidson) had a great time on her annual vacation, I am so glad mama bear is home to see what’s going on under her own roof! Here’s a thought… Could you imagine if Niki Smith irrupted just as Viki realized that Jess was Tess! Oh, my, the mess Llanview would be in then! It was nice to see Cain back on the scene. Though he didn’t make off with the jewels, he took the next best thing to make Tina realize he was serious – poor David Vickers The Dog! Wonder if Tina will pay more than five bucks to get him back this time?
Janet A.K.A. Lee Halpern, Lee Sanders and Carol Dennison…
“I’ve left all that behind. I have a new life,” Janet pleaded with John McBain, to which John replied, “You can tell me what’s going on in that house, or you can watch me make your life a living hell…” Well, well, well, what do we have here – a past character many of us didn’t even recognize! And who better to live with than a man who has done his fair share of hiding his past himself – Todd! Janet Zarish (Janet) actually played on the show, off and on, back in 1987 through 1988 under her aliases as a friend of Renee’s, a lover of Max’s and an enemy of Tina’s! All I can say is, I’d hate to have Janet’s secrets with John on my tail. Wait – strike that, Hmmm… seeing that Johnny McBain is my favorite character, I guess I’d lie for a while too just to keep him on the chase!
Cris finally ‘phones home’…
“Sarah, can you hear me?” Cris asks, to which Sarah replies, “Cris, is that you…” Well, it’s about time the whole country of Colombia got their phone lines back up and running. I’m finding it hard to believe that Cris would stay shacked up, storm or not, in this house with this mysterious damsel in distress when his family and friends are back home worried sick about him! Again, I’ll say it… something just isn’t right about Vanessa.
Gigi delivers her payback!
"I'm his family! Not Gigi, not Shane, me," Adriana screamed to Bo as he was asking Adriana to allow Gigi a chance to bring Rex out of his coma … Through the whole talk about pulling the plug on Rex, I was so waiting for Rex to sit up and say, "Hey, guys, are you giving up on me this soon?" I mean, come on! Though I agree, Adriana is being very presumptuous through this whole ordeal, I can't blame her - and wouldn't want to give up on Rex this soon either! However, the highlight of the week for me was when Gigi finally reached her limit and let Adriana have it - right in the kisser, which leads me to the funniest quote of the week... "You hit me in a hospital?" Adriana snapped at Gigi, to which Shane laughed and reminded Adriana, "You hit my mom in a church! Way to go, Mom!"
Starr anticipates birth…
"I'm not ready for this," Starr cried to Blair… Watching Starr experience what seemed like labor pains really broke my heart… Not because of the storyline, but because there are so many young girls out there who are going through the same experience with no support. I just hope the public awareness being addressed through the show's pregnancy storyline reaches both the teens struggling with their young pregnancies and the parents who don't know how to accept them.
Nora and Clint have it out - again!
Don't even get me started on these two… Forgive me, fellow One Lifers, but I'm not even going to go there. If I ever thought Clint and Nora could survive as a couple, now I'm sure that they can't. Maybe Llanview should hold a big dance-off again, so Nora and Bo can reconnect! As far as I'm concerned the only good thing that's come out of this storyline for me was seeing A Martinez (Ray Montez) and Doc Dougherty (Jackie McNaughton) back in Daytime again!
I'm glad you decided to stop by again to listen to me rant. I hope you'll also leave your own thoughts, as I'd love to hear your take on Llanview as of late! Please take a moment to vote in the poll below. For those who are wondering what the majority thought about Dorian turning Clint's offer down last week, here's what Soaps.com readers had to say in last week's poll … 59 said, Yes, Dorian should have taken the deal for Langston's sake while 32 agreed that Clint shouldn't be trusted!
I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! I'll look forward to seeing you back here on Monday!
