One Life to Live Puts Kibosh on Ver Dorn Doing GL Finale





Don't look for C. Blake Marler to get her happily ever after on Guiding Light. In her latest column for New York Daily News, Carolyn Hinsey reveals One Life to Live wouldn't allow Jerry Ver Dorn (Clint) to reprise the role of Blake's presumed dead husband Ross Marler to help wrap up GL. Now OLTL, y'all know you are wrong for that! Y'all could have let Ver Dorn traipse off to Peapack for a day so one of my favorite GL couples could reunite! I know a way you can make it up to me. Hire the phenomenal Kiefer as a new love interest for Clint. Hmm, fiery red head, already based in New York, perhaps she could play Tina Lord?

This is a horrible decison on the part of eithier OLTL or Brian Frons. Why should it matter if Jerry Ver Dorn went back to his old show if he want too? Good grief!

To LIASON4REAL you really don't know what the hell you are talking about...you would only be so lucky to get any GL actor that has won emmys on OLTL !!! GL has more freaking emmy winning actors than any other show out there. Real soap fans know this and would have to agree if they know anything about GL at all after all we are the only soap to ever win 4 major acting emmys in one year - Best Actress Kim Zimmer/Best Supporting Actress Gina Tognoni/ Best supporting Actor Jordan Clarke/Best younger Actor Tom Pelphrey for 2006 and no other show has ever won 4 acting emmys in one year...this dosen't count the endless acting emmys in previous years GL has won...half the damned actors on this show have won one. I will never ever watch OLTL again if this decision isn't reversed.

Josstheguy, if you research it ABC did NOT offer her a contract role on GH or Night Shift.. All they said was Finola was going to play "heavily" in story with Robin that summer on GH. When you fast forward to that moment she wasn't. From what I heard, Finola was going to have a big part on Y&R.

Llanview said, "Conversely, OLTL paid Michael Zaslow the same respect when GL seem to let him go after his illness worsened, isn't there somebody on the show that believes in a "two way street"?"

The then producers of GL were scumbags and discriminated against Mr. Zaslow, firing him because of his illness. OLTL's producers were AWESOME. They hired Zaslow and wrote his illness into the storyline, providing Zaslow and his family with much needed income and support.

How many companies do such wonderful things? Most companies we here about try to screw over employees, not take care of them. ABC deserves credit for how the past regime handled Mr. Zaslow.

P.S.

I think Zaslow was able to sue or successfully reach a settlement with P&G.
