Soaps.com has some current projects surrounding the current and former “One Life To Live” actors. This week includes a new travel show, a Kia commercial, a funny Daytimer on Broadway, shoes for sale, a red carpet interview and more…
Jessie Malakouti’s White Girl Wasted on Spotify:

Gina Tognoni’s Sole 9 website:
Earlier this year we reported details for (ex-Kelly Cramer) Gina Tognoni’s Sole 9 shoe line. The actress took to Facebook to announce that the site is up and running and invited fans to visit Sole 9 to shop for sandals, flats and ballerina shoes and shared a special bonus that comes along with every pair sold. “I know you are going to love wearing them, especially since you are doing something incredibly cool at the same time,” Tognoni stated. “I wanted to develop a line of shoes for women that are not only comfortable and stylish but also celebrates the innate beauty in all of us. ‘Style that gives back’ really means something to me, so a portion of the proceeds of each sale will be used to put love into action. Sole 9 works with regional and national organizations to shelter, educate and clothe women in need right here in the USA. Comfort is good. Giving is great.”

Do you ever wonder what time of day certain scenes are taped? The scenes from last Thursday's June 13 episode, where Todd (Roger Howarth) brought Blair into the secret room at his suite, weren't taped during normal business hours - not what most deem them to be. Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer) shared through Twitter:
The scenes in the video room were shot at 1:30 in the morning!!!Roger and I were exhausted!
