Shenell Edmonds not returning to One Life To Live:
Shenell Edmonds has announced via her official Facebook page that she will not return for the Llanview reboot as Destiny Evans. “I have been enjoying life to the fullest and slowly easing into college life since you last saw me on ‘OLTL’. During the past year, you might have seen me in a few commercials and most recently out & about as a nominee for the 44th NAACP Image Awards held in Los Angeles on February 1st. I had a chance to visit with Frank Valentini, ex-‘OLTL’ and current ‘GH’ Executive producer and Paul Glass, ex-‘OLTL’ and current ‘GH’ Musical Director. It was so nice seeing them again. Many of you have asked me about the Prospect Park reboot of ‘OLTL’ online so here goes. I am very excited about the return of ‘OLTL’ as many of you are. Obviously I can’t give specifics but I will tell you that I was invited to join the cast. Unfortunately, they were unable to accommodate my school schedule therefore, I had to politely decline. My heartfelt thanks to all of you for rooting for my return and your continuous support. ‘OLTL’ will always be dear to my heart and hey, you never know, soaps may return into my life at another time.”
