Find out what ‘photo clue’ led us to believe JWoww will recur on OLTL before the official casting was announced.

Llanview actors miss their pets while shooting:
If you have a pet and have ever had to travel without them most likely separation anxiety sets in. It's no different for a few Llanview actors who are missing their furry friends while shooting scenes away from home. Though we don't know who this cutie belongs to Kelley Missal (Dani Lord) tweeted a photo of a dog that was on set filling the void for her and Andrew Trischitta (Jack Manning).

Nic Robuck's extracurricular activities:
It would be nice to see Nic Robuck bring James Ford back to Llanview but so far that's not in the cards. However, the actor has been having fun these days and tweeted a photo to show fans just what he's been doing.

One Life To Live history:
Would you have wanted your child walking around carrying a rag doll of Todd Manning, complete with his signature scar? Diehard Llanview fans may have purchased the doll that ABC marketed back in 2002. Though the doll went on sale on April 20 it was pulled on May 7 that same year, due to the controversy - most notably the rape - surrounding the character. Angela Shapiro, who was ABC's president at the time, apologized for not being more sensitive to the history of the character.
